Slavery persists in our age in various forms. The bonded labour system is one of them. Child labour is another kind of bonded labor. Both arise out of socio-economic and historical reasons. India, the largest democratic country in the world, has 65 million bonded child laborers, and 300 million adult laborers living a life of bondage and contemporary forms of slavery, according to our estimates. This is despite Constitutional guarantees and prohibitive laws like the Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act 1976, the Child labour (Prohibition and Regulation Act) 1986 and International Conventions on the subject.
