The law governing child labour is called as "The Child labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986. The law prohibits and regulates (in certain scheduled industries), working of children below the age of 14. The Constitution of India, guarantees a Fundamental Right of education to every child below the age of 14 and prohibits child labour. In case if you wish to report a case of child labour, you can call Childline on 1098, a toll free 24 hour service across India. The child will be rescued and put up in shelter homes or other alternative arrangements, depending upon the situation. If the children have families and are lost, they are rehabilitated.
