The present study “Child Labour” conducted on the sample of 120 respondents from district Rohtak under objectives: (i) To study the socio-economic background and working conditions of respondents; (ii) To find out the factors responsible for child labour and consequences there after; and (iii) To suggest remedial strategy based on the information gathered. The primary as well as secondary data was used to get the data. A questionnaire was used to collect the primary data from the respondents. Analysis revealed that an overwhelming majority of respondents having insufficient parental income was most important factor which forcing them for labor work, followed by the respondents having labour as their family occupation, while a significant number of them were encouraged by parents and near-dears, about half of the respondents were not interested in acquiring education. On the other hand, for near about half of the respondents main factor was large family size. So, it can also easily be inferred that evil of child labour is born of poverty and other economic reasons.
