‘Frame child labour rehabilitation policy in three months’April 16th, 2008 - 9:21 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, April 16 (IANS) The Delhi High court has asked the central government to frame a rehabilitation policy within three months for rescued child labourers. A division bench comprising Justices Manmohan Sarin and Manmohan granted the government three months to draw up a comprehensive policy for children who worked as labour in small-scale industries.
The government counsel informed the bench last week that the draft for the policy was ready and had been sent to states for suggestions and asked for more time to frame the same.
In January, the court allowed 14 children who were rescued by Delhi Police to be handed over to their parents, and asked the government to bring out a policy for their rehabilitation.
“There is an urgent need for bringing a policy which should include an educational and economical rehabilitation plan,” the bench had said.
