Meghalaya state protocol on child labour

The problem of Child Labour poses a challenge before the State. Child Labour is a social malady and a major obstacle which deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, causing great harm to their physical and mental development. Considering that it is essentially a socio-economic problem inextricably linked to poverty and illiteracy, it requires concerted efforts not only from the Government but also from all sections of the society.
