They praised government officials where progress had been made but also ordered officials to take further aggressive action to root out the scourge of bonded labor in Bihar.The NHRC and Bihar Labor Department expressed appreciation for JVI’s work in collaborating with government officials to dismantle this insidious form of modern slavery.

JVI lawyers are now following up with local officials to ensure that compliance with the directions issued by the NHRC at the workshop are achieved.
