What is the estimate of child labour in India?

February 14, 2014 | FAQs | No Comments

It is estimated that there are about 2 million children working in the so-called hazardous industries. If one were to define child labour as wage earning work alone, the official estimates are around 12.6 million (Census 2001) and 4.98 million (NSSO survey, 2009-10).

However, if one were to define all children out of school as child labour, the figure would be closer to 80 million (Census 2001).
