Due to poverty, illiteracy, high cost of education, low aspiration, huge demand for unskilled labourers the practice of child labour can emerge and continuing from pre-independence era to till today. The major consequences of child labour are the loss of quality childhood, different kinds of health issues, mental trauma etc. The present study was conducted to study the socio-economic profile and work profile of the respondents in the study area, to find out the factors responsible and challenges faced by the respondents in Bhadrak district of Odisha.
