Anti-trafficking draft Bill is toothless: Experts
Author: Neetu Chandra Sharma, India Today, Published on: 30 May 2016
The draft of Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehablitation) Bill 2016 was released by WCD minister Maneka Gandhi but it got a thumbs down from those working against human trafficking....the bill has features similar to the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act 1956, which it proposes to improve upon...Women activists have called the Bill unrealistic. "Cross border and regional trafficking can be monitored but what about internal trafficking in cities? The Bill requires more consultations with states and experts. Itis not factual but just another document from a new government," said Barkha Singh, a women activist & former chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women.
