The parents or guardians of the children who are working in violation of this law will generally not be punished for allowing their children to work.
However, this immunity does not apply if they make their child (who is under 14 years of age) work for commercial purposes or make their child (between 14 years and 18 years) work in a hazardous occupation or process.
The law does give them a chance to correct their wrong – when they are caught doing this the first time, they can settle it by paying money.However, if they make their child work again in violation of the law, they can be punished with a fine of up to Rs. 10,000.
