    Why being minor, the child actors are allowed to do the job at early age?

    According to labour low a minor before 18 years of his age canít start doing work as a professional in any field. Then why are the children artists are allowed to work as models and actors in different projects for several hours?

    Dear,
    You have asked a very good question, this thing also stick sometimes in my mind also.
    For the right answer dear you have to concern with the RTI department of our country.
    You can visit the RTI center or can ask this question online from the department, they will take sometime but you will get a satisfactory answer.

    Dear Aspirant,

    We can not treat all fields alike.There are major differences among the nature of different fields.Film industry is entirely different from others.In film industry,a film is produced which has some specific purpose.Some film has view to show social & family back ground where as some is on national issue like wise some is scientifically.The film which is social & family back ground needs child actors for son & son's in law role.The role can be performed by adults for children.So here it is comulsory & not so much paining & exploiting in nature for childs.The film can be produced without child.

    So child actors can not be compared with child labour.Where term labour implies,here it is a complete exploitation of the particular child.

    Child actors hardly work for few hrs.where as child labour,if permitted,will be engaged for more than normal hrs of duty,i.e 8 hrs.Every adult employee may try to exploit them.

    Thanks & good luck.

    In labour law nothing has been stated as you have been mentioned here. According to labour law the minor child (below the age of 18 years) should not indulge in any work which affects it's health and physical developement. In a professional work skills are mainly used, so it's does not come under prohibitive category hence it's valid and legal. As per theThe Factories Act of 1948, employing the children below the age of 14 years is strictly prohibitive and certain do's and don't are prescribed for the children between 15-18 years.
