 Central Government is the appropriate authority for enforcement of the Child Labour(Prohibition & Regulation) Act, 1986 in respect of establishments under the control of the Central Government or a railway administration or a major port or a mine or oilfield and in all other cases, the appropriate authority is the State Government. The details showing the inspections conducted, violations detected, prosecutions launched and convictions obtained during the last three years  in respect of Central sphere are as follows:-

            The incidence of engagement of child labour being marginal in Central sphere, the prosecutions and convictions remained low.

            In no case of conviction the maximum punishment of imprisonment for one year was awarded.

            The incidence of employment of child labour in Central sphere is negligible, the number of prosecution is also comparatively on the lower side.

            This information was given by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, ShriHarish Rawat in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
