Rajnath Singh sets target to wipe out child labour”

Addressing a National Conference on Child Labour in New Delhi today, Mr Singh said, the Operation Smile was first launched by the home Ministry in January 2015 to rescue and rehabilitate the missing children.

Mr Singh said, childhood is the best gift of God, but those who get trapped in child labour are deprived of that handsome gift.

"The Home Ministry has launched "Operation Smile" to locate missing children". He was speaking at an event where he launched a portal to curb child trafficking.

Singh said that in the last two years, 70,000 children have been rescued.

The SOP aims to ensure complete prohibition of child labour and protection of adolescents from hazardous labour leading to Child Labour Free India.

The portal, developed by the labour ministry to curb trafficking, will have a child tracking system, a complaint corner, and will also host a state government official.

The portal seeks to connect Central Government to State Government, District and to all Project Societies would provide a mechanism for implementation.

Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi was the guest of honour while Labour and Employment Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar presided over the conference.
