MUMBAI: A team from the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) inspected sets of several television programmes on Friday. Themove came days after the government issued legal notices to TV producers seeking details of children working in serials.

Senior NCPCR members, who visited the sets of Balika Vadhu on Friday, seemed satisfied with the environment in which the children were working. She said, "All the children on the sets were happy and the work environment was very nice. They were also studying in between their shoots.''

This, however, would not stop the NCPCR from chalking out guidelines for using children in films, serials and advertisements. "We want children to have a balanced life, which will give them time for education and healthy personality development,'' a member said.

The commission has been working on the guidelines for the last eight months. "We are not talking about children being exploited on the sets, but we do feel that children's rights are getting curbed. We will, hopefully, be able to finalise the guidelines in two months,'' said Sandhya Bajaj, a member.

Bajaj, who also visited the sets of reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, refused to comment on the work environment. "There were a lot of children on the sets and we spoke to them. We have made our observations and those will be reflected in the guidelines we are working on.''

Bajaj said the team had not decided on fixed working hours for children. "But I have seen the practical problems that crop up during shooting,'' she said.

Bajaj stressed the need for the ambulances, doctors and counsellors during shoots. "There will be rules for parents as well as guidelines for those judging reality shows.''
