India moves to toughen child labour laws

Millions of children across India work as domestic servants and in factories or mines, according to aid agenciesIndia’s government moved Wednesday to toughen child labour laws in a country where millions of youngsters work long hours, often in poor conditions, but activists slammed the steps as inadequate. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet approved a ban on all children under the age of 14 from working, except if employed in family businesses or in the sports and entertainment industry. Some argue that outlawing child labour altogether is impractical in India where almost a quarter of the 1.2 billion population lives on less than $1.25 a day, according to the World Bank.
