This was stated by Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nayab Singh during one-day workshop on Child Labour organised by Haryana State Commission for Protection of Child Rights on the occasion of World Day against Child Labour, here on Tuesday.

He directed the officers to inform the owners of brick kilns, shops and houses, the legalities against engaging child labourers as strict legal action would be taken against them for this purpose.
