Bengaluru tops State in child labour, says study

A study conducted by the Child Rights and You (CRY) has revealed that Bengaluru has the highest number of working children in Karnataka. Belagavi comes a close second followed by Kalaburagi, Mysuru and Yadgir in the order.

The CRY said the trend holds true for both the 5-9 year age group and the 10-14 age group.
The study also reveals that child labour in urban areas in the country has increased by 53 pc over 2001-2011. CRY in its report, stated, “This is of utmost concern especially since enforcement machinery is primarily based in urban areas and the implementation of child protection structures is stronger in urban India. This increase in urban child labour could be attributed to increased migration including seasonal migration for employment as well as trafficking of unaccompanied minors.”
