INDIA-MINING-CHILDREN-LABOUR

TO GO WITH: India-mining-children-labour,FEATURE; by Ammu Kannampilly In this photograph taken on January 31, 2013, a young worker places a basket filled with coal on his head at a road side coal depot in the Indian northeastern state of Meghalaya. Child labour is officially illegal in India, with several state laws making the employment of anyone under 18 in a hazardous industry a non-bailable offence. Meghalaya, however, has traditionally been exempt due to its special status as a northeastern state with a significant tribal population. According to the Shillong-based non-profit, Impulse NGO Network, some 70,000 children are currently employed in Meghalaya's mines, with several thousand more working at coal depots.
