Topic: Anti-trafficking bill
A previous draft of anti-human trafficking bill was passed in Lok Sabha in 2018 but was never introduced in Rajya Sabha.
The proposed legislation includes punishment for trafficking for forced labour and marriage but neglects trafficking for sexual exploitation and organ trade.
Lack of awareness and the daunting task of collecting proof has meant that few victims of trafficking manage to avail of govt compensation.
Some voiced concerns that the bill will bring voluntary sex workers under the scanner while others say it will help vulnerable sections.
