The Constitution mentions three specific evils and declares them illegal.
(i) Traffic in human beings: Traffic here means selling and buying of human beings, usually women, for immoral purposes. (ii) Begar: Our constitution also prohibits forced labour or begar in any form. It is a practice where the worker is forced to render service to the 'master', free of charge or at a nominal salary. When this practice takes place on a lifelong basis, it is called 'bonded labour'. (iii) Child labour: The Constitution also prohibits child labour. No can employ a child below the age of 14 years to work in any factory or mine or in any other hazardous work such as in the railways and ports.
