The present study posits that the Indian Supreme Court has employed a unique type of public interest litigation to safeguard the rights of workers who have been exploited. This study reveals that the Indian Supreme Court has been labour friendly and has taken the constitutional promise of socioeconomic development seriously by examining the worst situations of child labour. Positive reforms for the most disadvantaged workers in Indian society have been facilitated by the higher judiciary through verdicts that have enlisted the support of local governments and non-governmental groups.
