Few notable laws are : 1.The Factories Act - prohibits the employment of children below the age of 14 years in any factory. The law also placed rules on who, when and how long can pre-adults aged 15–18 years be employed in any factory. 2.The Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act - The Act prohibits the employment of children below the age of 14 years in hazardous occupations identified in a list by the law. The list was expanded in 2006, and again in 2008. 3.The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) of Children Act - This law made it a crime, punishable with a prison term, for anyone to procure or employ a child in any hazardous employment or in bondage.
