Hi every One,
As per my knowledge, It is acceptable in Factory act. employer can employed to above 15 yrs old children with Permission of Factory Inspector. Different rules are applicable to them, like .. nature of work, Working hrs, Leave with pay, etc.

Dear Tushar Swar,

Child means a person who have not competed the age of 14 years. Person above 15 years become adolescent. Factories Act,1948 does not allow us to employ children in factory.

Give me your address and I will inform the Labour Authorities to conduct enquiry in your company, how the hell could you lose your senses, when so many members have advised you, you still are adament on employing children as labourers . SHAME ON U

For a fact, you haven't mentioned the age group of children you are hiring. If the age exceeds 15 years, then with a fitness certificate it looks quite fine. However, if the age is below 15 years and the work is hazardous also, then it spells TROUBLE.
Moreover, the nature of work also makes a difference. With India being a labor driven country, simple errands of getting stationary etc is still acceptable. However factory work is illegal.

Hi Dear,
Employment of child is prohibited under factory act. Now question is who is child? as per ILO and Indian Law the definition of child is whosoever has not completed the age of 14 years will be in the category of child. From 15 yrs to 18 yrs guy is called as young worker and a young worker can be given employment under the given guideline in factory act. Above the 18 yrs guy called adult worker.

Dear Mr. Ravi,
Sorry to say this why you gave worst response to this threat as a hr you must know how to answer others be polite you suggestion, advices are all welcome but dont too much heated on others. your response is not professional way please think of that. if i am wrong i apologize you.

From India
Despite of different provisions for the age group between 15 to 18 in factories act, try to avoid to employ the persons below 18 years of age. It is in the broad interest of the society/nation.
