Abstract

Child labour manifested in several shades have destroyed and distort the hope and the future of society by many of the future leaders today’s adults taking part in roles and activities for adults. This reduces the output per person as consequence and has been able to retard National Development. The crucial point is the legislation with stringent measures not only to discourage child labour but to completely exterminate the obnoxious practice that is gradually destroying our future.
