MUMBAI: Four television channels will be dragged to the court on the International Child Labour Day on Friday for violating the Child Labour Act.

Maharashtra labour minister Nawab Malik said on Thursday that legal proceedings would start against producers of eight TV serials for hiring child artistes.

The serials are Chotte Ustad, Balika Vadhu, Jai Krishna and Utaran (all aired on Colors), Chak De Bachche (9X), Chotta Package Bada Dhamaka and Mayka (aired on Zee), Baap Bahu Aur Baby (aired on Star Plus) and Jasubhen Jayantilal Ki Joint Family (aired on NDTV imagine).

The producers are accused of not furnishing details of remuneration paid to a child below 14 years to the labour department. Under the Act, offenders face simple imprisonment of six months or a fine of 10,000, or both.
