Child begging has been increasing at an alarming rate. It has been reported that maximum number of children indulge in begging even though they have parents. It is surprising to note that the parents have been encouraging their children to beg. In Hyderabad city alone, over 20,000 children are found to be beggars. NGO organisations, who are rescuing the begging children, have suggested people not to help them financially instead provide them with required things like clothes or provide food.
