Child labor is one of the most severe issues and hindrances in developing countries. Though there are many efforts and inputs to eradicate child labor by the different International organizations and legal provisions, it couldn’t stop it, ultimately leading it to a failure due to numerous reasons. Different organizations have established exceptional measures and passed numerous laws and regulations to stop child labor, however, the issue stays inescapable around the world. The point of child labor has different causes and clarifications. One the existence of Child Labor is in the form of domestic delivery both in rural and urban areas. A boy child works in industries and manufacturing units, where a girl child is kept at home to work such as doing household chores and restaurants (dish washing, cooking, sweeping, and cleaning). It forces children into various environments which we can’t imagine. It forces children to trafficking it into child pornography and migration to another place to work, which leads to exploitation and exhaustion at an early age. Due to social classification and caste system, domestic child labor mishaps in India are pretty confounded and profoundly settled. There are various causes of domestic child labor, such as poverty, social and economic backwardness, and lack of education and resources. The consequences of child labor are abuses, discrimination, exploitation, deprivation of love and affection, lack of basic needs, child pornography, prostitution, social stigmatization, and trafficking of girls early.
