Children constitute over one-third of India’s population of 1.21 billion people, i.e. every sixth child in the world lives in India. Of these 400 million children do not have access to clean drinking water, homes, and a proper education. India has 10.12 million child labourers aged between 5 to 14 years (National Census 2011).
