Rajya Sabha allowed children below 14 to be engaged in ‘home-based work’.On Tuesday 19th July 2016, a bill was passed in Rajya Sabha as children below 14 can be taken as 'home-based work' instead of any kind of labour/worker/profession. This home based work should not cause or related to any hazardous occupations and processes; against which the violator may be jail for six month to one year and fined with Rs. 20,000-50,000/-. Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya said there shouldn't be any 'employer-employee equation', only home-based work. However, some home based works like 'beedi making's is hazardous and non-hazardous work like agriculture is somehow dangerous, as chemicals used there.
