National Child Labour Projects

 

                 The Government is implementing National Child Labour Project (NCLP) in 266 districts of 20 States of the country including Maharashtra for rehabilitation of children rescued/withdrawn from work. Under the Project, children rescued/withdrawn from work are enrolled in the special schools, where they are provided with bridge education, vocational training, nutrition, stipend, health care, etc. before being mainstreamed into formal education system. The State-wise details of children rehabilitated/mainstreamed since inception i.e. 1988 under the Scheme is given as Annexure-I.

 

Detail of State-wise grants released under NCLP Scheme during the last five years is given as Annexure-II.

 

The Ministry has received proposals from Government of Uttar Pradesh for addition of new district i.e. Panchsheel Nagar (Hapur) and Government of Meghalya for 7 new districts to cover under NCLP Scheme. The Ministry has granted permission for implementation of NCLP in Panchsheel Nagar (Hapur) in Uttar Pradesh.  However, sanctioning of 7 new districts in Megahalaya is pending for want of survey report on child labour from State Government. No such proposal has been received from Maharashtra.

 

           The Union Labour & Employment Minister Shri Mallikarjun Kharge gave this information in a written reply  in  Lok  Sabha today.
