NHRC to organise workshop on elimination of bonded labour, human trafficking at Ranchi
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) is organising a day long Workshop on 'Elimination of Bonded Labour, Child Labour and Human Trafficking' in collaboration with the Government of Jharkhand at Judicial Academy Jharkhand in Ranchi on the 9th September, 2016.

The Workshop will be chaired by Justice D. Murugesan, Member, NHRC. The participants of the Workshop will be senior officers of the Government of Jharkhand, representative(s) State Human Rights Commission of Jharkhand, NGOs and representatives of brick kilns, stone crushing and other related industries.

Academic, research scholars and final year law Students/Research Scholars (PhD) from Central University of Jharkhand, Ranchi University and National University of Study and Research in Law are also invited to attend the Workshop.

The objective of the Workshop is to familiarize and sensitize the District Magistrates, Sub Divisional Magistrates, State Labour Officers and Members of Vigilance Committees, brick kilns, stone crushing and other related industries etc. in the process of identification, release and rehabilitation of bonded labourers and with the provisions of Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, 1976 and other related legislations.

The NHRC was asked by the Supreme Court of India in 1997 to get involved in the monitoring of the implementation of the Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, 1976. The Court's directions came while hearing a Writ Petition (No. 3922/1985) - People's Union for Civil Liberties Vs State of Tamil Nadu & Others. Since then, the NHRC has been overseeing the implementation of the Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act 1976 in different parts of the country.

Therefore, the Commission, in its endeavor to raise concerns on the continuance of bonded labour has been organising workshops to sensitize official machinery to work for its abolition in different parts of the country. It has organised 37 workshops on elimination of bonded labour so far.
