KALABURAGI: The Labour Department appears to have neglected the task of holding child labour survey, depriving 13 districts of child labour rehabilitation centres. It has come to light that eight out of the 17 districts of Karnataka where National Child Labour Project (NCLP) is in force, have not conducted the survey. Five districts have conducted the survey, but rehabilitation centres have not yet opened.

As per NCLP guidelines, all the districts covered under NCLP have to conduct surveys twice in a plan period of six years. But many of the districts did not conduct the child labour survey even after the expiration of the duty date. The child labour rehabilitation centres stopped functioning temporarily a few months ago.
