New scheme to prevent trafficking of women in India

The ministry of women and child development, government of India, has formulated ‘Ujjawala’, a new comprehensive scheme for the prevention of trafficking and rescue, rehabilitation and re-integration of victims of trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation (CSE).

The object of the scheme is to prevent trafficking of women and children for CSE, to facilitate rescue of victims from the place of their exploitation and place them in safe custody, to provide rehabilitation services both immediate and long term by providing basic amenities/needs such as food, clothing, medical aid, counselling, legal aid, guidance, vocational training and shelter, to facilitate reintegration of the victims into the family and society at large and to facilitate repatriation of cross-border victims to their country of origin.

Any organization applying for grant-in-aid under this scheme should be duly registered under the law in existence for at least 3 years and should be financially sound.
