Impact of Technological Change on the Incidence of Child Labour in the Indian Match Industry
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Economics.
2011 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The Indian match industry in the southern state of Tamil  Nadu has been characterized by child labour and a stagnant technology for  over half a century. We investigate the technological changes and  industrial restructuring, catalysed by the changing duty structure that has  moved the match industry towards greater mechanization. Our examination  indicates that increased mechanization in the production processes has  implied greater demand for skilled labour and a decline in child labour.
