Delhi High Court Seeks Government's Reply On Prevention Of Child Labour
The Delhi High Court has sought response of the Delhi government on an NGO's plea seeking implementation of a previous judgement on prevention and elimination of child labour. A bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice VK Rao was hearing an application by NGO 'Bachpan Bachao Andolan' (BBA) and associate organisation 'Save the Childhood Foundation'.
The court asked the Delhi government to respond and listed the matter for further hearing on November 16.
In the July 2009 judgement, the high court had modified the existing provisions for better rehabilitation of child labourers and had widened the involvement of police in rescue operations of child labour in the city.
