2011-15: bonded labour identified, released and rehabilitated, state-wise

Mar 21 2015

The bonded labour system still exists in India. In 2014-15, more than 800 bonded labourers were rescued and rehabilitated in Chhattisgarh. Although, data from the past four years shows a decreasing trend in such cases, it is bizarre to find a system, ostensibly abolished in 1975, still in practice in some parts of the country. The scheme for rehabilitation of bonded labour is under implementation since 1978 and as of March, 2014, about 3 lakh such cases were found. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh have witnessed the highest number of releases of such labourers
