All set for Anti Trafficking Bill becoming an Act


It was an important occasion for the entire section of victims of human trafficking when MPs cutting across party lines promised to get the Bill passed in the winter session.

This was made possible by the initiative of Prayas JAC Society and Freedom which brought together victims from all over the country face to face with the MPs.

These MPs included the veteran D Raja of CPI, Pradeep Tamta (Congress), Akhilesh Prasad Singh (Congress), N Gokulakrishnan(AIDAN) , Bhuvaneshwar Kalita (Congress) and Satyanarain Jatia (BJP), who said that this was a long over due legislation and they were committed to get it passed.

The MPs took time off from their session in Parliament to hear out the stories of the victims of all kinds of trafficking including bonded labour, organ trade, sexual exploitation etc.

The bill has already been passed by the Lok Sabha in July and awaits a nod by the Rajya Sabha.

Mr. Amod K Kanth General Secretary explained to the MPs why this Bill was an improvement on the earlier Immoral Trafficking Act which only victimised the victims.

The Bill had also added crimes like bonded labour, organ trade and administration of chemicals for sexual exploitation of victims etc to cover the entire gamut of exploitation.

On this occasion two books on Human Trafficking were also released marking the 30 year journey of Prayas ,followed by a discussion on the issues related to trafficking and Child Welfare Committees etc.

Mr. Priyank Kanoongo, the new Chairman of the NCPCR promised to bring about many reforms in its working which would bring relief to victims all across the country.
