CHILDLINE Kochi cautions against employing children

On the eve of the World day against child labour, the CHILDLINE Kochi appealed to all stakeholders, media, NGOS, panchayats, municipalities, local bodies, competent authorities and especially those employing children as child labour in establishments, organisations and shops to take actions in preventing child labour.

CHILDLINE Kochi, has pointed out that only a few cases have been registered according to the Juvenile Justice Act on incidents of child labour reported by the organisation between April last year and March 2012. CHILDLINE had received 23 phone calls at the helpline number '1098' in the last one year but legal steps were taken only in a very few cases.
