Inviting Comments on the Draft Trafficking Of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2016

Ministry of Women and Child Development has formulated a draft Bill on “Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2016” for further consultations with all stakeholders. It aims to create a strong legal, economic and social environment against trafficking of persons and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.

The draft Bill has taken in to account the various aspects of trafficking and its punishments as defined in section 370- 373 of Indian Penal Code, 1860 and aims to include other offences/ provisions which are not dealt in any other law for the purpose of trafficking, such as (1) penal provisions for the disclosure of identity of the victim of trafficking and witness (2) use of narcotic drug or psychotropic substance or alcohol for the purpose of trafficking (3) use of chemical substance or hormones for the purpose of exploitation. The draft Bill has also taken in to its ambit the ‘placement agencies’ by making mandatory for them to also register for the purposes of this Act.

The proposed draft Bill aims to place dedicated institutional mechanism at District, State and Central level. It also envisages a designated Agency for the investigation of offences. It provides for Protection Homes and Special Homes for short term and long term rehabilitation support. For speedy trial with a view to increase prosecution and to reduce the trauma faced by the victims, the proposed draft Bill provides for establishing Special Courts in each district and experienced Special Prosecutors. Recovery of back wages and other monetary losses of the victim of trafficking is also proposed.

The draft Bill provides for mandatory reporting within 24 hours by a Police Officer, Public servant, any officer or employee of Protection Home or Special Home having custody of the victim of trafficking to the District Anti-Trafficking Committee or in case of child victim to the Child Welfare Committee. For the effective implementation of the proposed Act and for the welfare and rehabilitation of the victims an Anti- Trafficking Fund will be created.

I support "Sex Selective Abortion is equivalent to the actual crime". Now my question is our "LAW System" uses the words "Gender, Husband, Wife, cast, religion etc", ........ stop playing "divide and rule" with common human................when the crater/implementer of law will be punished as actual criminal?

Law says law is above all. If law is above all, then why it can’t solve the millions of cases in last decades. Why the seekers of proper justice are avoiding the way to the courts? Only peoples who have money and criminals are knocking the door of courts. The poor common citizens of India and who wants to live in peace are the victims by law. As per our education “all are child of god”. The word like cast, gender, religion etc are used by law, how can it be above all? Are we wrongly educated?

We commend the GOI for its intent to safe guard the rights of workers who desire to migrate and prevent the extortion by agents who otherwise cheat workers and lead them into conditions of forced labour. We therefore welcome an anti trafficking Bill.

Having said this, we would also like to highlight the lacuna in the present draft an

We the common human are harassed and tortured by the persons who are appointed to rescue us from harassed or tortured they want only money. Please save us from tortured in the name of relief or justice. Today we are in internet era, though we have to give money or go as per their choice of police/lawyers/social worker as well as judge. Why we don't have online portal of total "online self service" as "internet banking"? BRING THE TRANSPARENCY....... in the system first.

How to stop / minimize Rape cases in India :
1. Indian law is not strict enough, once Rape victim is certified, should be hanged till death within one week.
2. Prostitute should be legalized in all over India , like most of all other countries in the world, so if someone is on his saturation point regarding his sex appeal or passion, so he can go to the prostitute and satisfied himself.
