Brick Kilns Census Punjab

Chief Minister Punjab took an initiative in Punjab to eradicate child labor at brick kilns in wake of the prohibition of child labor from Punjab Province. The Urban Unit started pilot census in January, 2016. The GIS imagery was used to identify the Brick Kilns in Punjab because the location of Brick Kilns bears the specific satellite signature through which it can easily be identified. As a result of this exercise about 10,000 Brick Kilns were identified. Data of 126766 children have been collected. Information of families and pictures of family heads and brick kilns have also been uploaded in database.
