The KSCF has the mandate to eliminate child labour and make sure that children receive quality education. Not engaging in work and seeking education is not only the Right of a child but is also essential for the socio economic growth of our country as children are the future of our country. Depriving children from having a healthy and educated childhood means obstructing country's social, cultural and economic development.
India was one of the member countries of the UN General Assembly Summit in which the SDGs were adopted. Therefore, a need was felt to assess whether India can achieve the target set under SDG 8.7.
The specific objectives of the present study are as follows:
1. To analyse and assess the child labour trend and rate of its change in India since 1981
2. To project the child labour population in India in 2025 and also assess the state level variations with regard to child labour
3. To recommend policies/strategies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 8.7
