Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986 - The Act provides for punishments and penalties for employing children below the age of 14 years in certain occupations and processes. It provides for regulation of work conditions including fixing hours of work, weekly holidays, notices to inspectors, provisions for resolving disputes as to age, maintenance of registers, etc. Through a recent notification in 2006, child domestic workers up to 14 years of age working in hotels, dhabas, eateries and in the entertainment industry have been brought within the purview of the Act. It is one step towards the total elimination of child labour.

Schedules A and B provide the 16 Occupations and 65 Processes that prohibit employment of

children respectively.

Section 17 of the Act identifies all officers who are empowered by the Act to rescue children from work.

Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, has come up with a draft protocol and procedure for raid and rescue of children from labour and trafficked for labour.
