Collector tells traders

DINDIGUL: Stern action will be initiated against persons appointing children aged below 14 years in companies, shops, hotels, tea shops, entertainment centres and road sides shops in the district as the Centre's order banning appointment of children in work places will come into force from October 10, said Collector R. Vasuki.

In a release here on Monday, she said that violations would attract criminal action. If any body found children working in any of these work spots, they should immediately inform to the Department of Labour Welfare at the Collectorate, she said.
