Dial 1098 to help rescue Delhi’s child beggars

New Delhi, Jan 17 (IANS) The next time an innocent little face peers through your car window at a traffic intersection in the capital, begging for alms, reach for your cell phone and dial the welfare helpline number 1098.It’s a Delhi government initiative to rescue child beggars. There are nearly 58,000 beggars in the city, the majority of whom are children accompanied by their parents.

“This practice (of children begging) is a disease,” said Social Welfare and Labour Minister Mangat Ram Singhal. Talking about the helpline, he said the caller would be expected to provide details about the location of the child beggar and continue on his or her way.

The number 1098 was actually started in 1998 as a child helpline, but from February it will be used to draw attention to the problem of child beggars. It will be manned by NGO workers spread over five zones.

Unlike the police helpline, officials would not appear immediately at the place from where a person calls. “Children who are regular offenders would be identified at permanent locations, then the ‘beggar squad’ would pick them up,” Singhal told IANS.

“We hope that eventually we will give more speedy solutions. This is not a permanent solution,” he added.

“We have an adequate number of officials on our beggar squad who can identify the children. If they are orphans, the children will be taken to our child homes or other government institutions where they can avail themselves of hostel and technical education facilities.”

Rules state that a child cannot be separated from the parent, but the department seems to have found a way out as far as child beggars are concerned.

“I am responsible not only for social welfare but also the labour department now…The parents too would be identified and booked under child labour laws,” said Singhal. Begging is illegal in the capital but is widely prevalent.

The government is also planning an exhaustive awareness drive about the helpline to “allow citizens to be directly involved in the project”. The campaign will be popularised through advertisements and radio jingles soon.

Task force formed to abolish child labour in Bihar

PATNA - A task force has been formed by the Bihar government to abolish child labour in the state, a minister said.

‘The state government has constituted a force named ‘Sramik Chetna Sainik’ to help the child labourers employed in the unorganised sector,’ state Minister for Labour Resources Awadesh Narayan Singh told IANS by phone.

He said the task force, comprising NGOs and child welfare department officials, will spread awareness and rescue and rehabilitate any child found working in the state. The step aims to abolish child labour completely from the state.

In October, Labour and Employment Minister Oscar Fernandes informed Parliament that Uttar Pradesh tops in child labour prevention, followed by Rajasthan and Bihar. Maximum number of children in the age group of 5-14 years were rescued and rehabilitated by the states.

According to the 2001 census, 12.7 million children in the age group of 5-14 years were working. About 540,000 children were ‘main workers’, who worked for over six months, while 580,000 were ‘marginal workers’, who worked for less than six months.

Bihar accounts for 8.9 percent of child labour in India.
