Abstract: Child labour is a universal problem and it not only hampers the growth and development of the children but also the progress of the nation. Though different nations have come up with various policies and regulations to tackle the problem of child labour, it is still rampant and in India the progress toward the elimination of the child labour is at snail place. In India only after 1971 “International Year of Child” the problems and issues of the children started giving attention on various platforms of the society. The work has been carried out with 250 sample size of the children who are involved with the waste management at various dump yards of Hyderabad city of Telangana state of India. Though government has come up with various policies and regulations to curb the problem of child labour, in reality, the situation is otherwise and the children are visible everywhere in collecting the rag and waste.
