The MWCD has formulated an umbrella scheme called Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS) with a view to provide a safe and secure environment for the overall development of children who are in need of care and protection as well as children in conflict with law, including children in difficult circumstances. The budget allocation under ICPS for the XII Plan period is INR 2350.00 crore. Number of Beneficiaries under the scheme are 77,508 and 36 states have signed the MoUs.
Initiated by ML&E, NCLP aims to prevent child labour and rescue & rehabilitate child labourers under the age of 14, with an aim to mainstream formal education for them. Currently, the scheme covers 280 Districts and is implemented in 3234 Special Training Centers, with an enrollment of 1,22,843 children. The annual expenditure under the scheme for 2016-17 was around INR 105 crore
Employment (ML&E) on 17th May 2016 launched the scheme, which is a central sector scheme where the state government is not required to pay any matching contribution for the purpose of cash rehabilitation assistance. Financial Assistance has been increased from INR 20,000 to INR 1,00,000 per adult male beneficiaries, INR 2 lakh for special category beneficiaries such as children including orphans or and female survivors. Rehabilitated bonded labourers who are extremely vulnerable would thereby receive INR 3 lakh assistance.
