The Ministry of Labour & Employment had implemented the National Child Labour Project (NCLP) Scheme for rehabilitation of child labourers through District Project Societies under the chairmanship of the District Magistrate since inception of the Scheme in 1988.  Under the NCLP scheme, the children in the age group of 9-14 years are rescued / withdrawn from work and enrolled in the NCLP Special Training Centres (STCs), where they are provided with bridge education, vocational training, mid-day meal, stipend, health care, etc. before being mainstreamed into formal education system.  NCLP scheme has now been subsumed under Samagara Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) Scheme with effect from 01.04.2021. Henceforth, the recused child labourers will be mainstreamed into formal education system through STC operational under SSA.  At present, no Special Training Centres (STC) is functional under NCLP scheme.

 No new STCs under NCLP Project have been approved after 31.03.2021. The number of districts in which Special Training Centres under NCLP Scheme were sanctioned since inception as on 31.03.2021 is at Annexure-I.
