Working population means able bodied persons and adults. Children are unable to perform productive activities. Use of children in work is equivalent to denying them childhood. Children’s right to playing and schooling should be respected. It is doubly criminal to turn them into dull adults and old persons. In every civilised society, children’s rightful place is school and playground. Hence, children are not included in working population for the purpose of employment.
