Cities in India have a much higher number of child labourers, many less than nine years of age, according to UNICEF. The latest Indian census data shows there are nearly 4.4 million child workers in the 5 to 14 age group in India. The State of Child Workers in India report by UNICEF, based on the latest Indian census data, says the proportion of child workers in the 5-9 year age group jumped to 24.8 percent in 2011 from 14.6 percent in 2001. Migration remains a major driver of child labour practices as the migrant parents usually come in search of livelihood to the city. And with no proper documents of age proof, the children from such families are often exploited by employers.  Children are employed in producing everything from pickles to fireworks, working in tourism and labouring on building sites, to collecting scraps, or selling flowers at traffic signals. Poverty still compels them to work and supplement household incomes.
