This standard work has been thoroughly revised and rewritten in view of the exhaustive amendments brought about in the Act by the Central Act No. 44 of 1986 which came into force on January 26, 1987.

The original Act, Suppression of Immoral Traffic in Women and Girls Act, had failed to effectively curb the evil of prostitution and more stringent measures were called for, as also the scope of the Act needed to be enlarged.

Thus, recent amendments provide for (a) enhancement of penalties for offences especially those involving children and minors; (b) cancellation of licences of hotels, etc. where children or minors have been found involved in prostitution; (c) enhancement of punishment for seduction in custody; (d) deletion of Sections 10 and 12; (e) compulsory medical examination of all persons recovered from a brothel; (f) interrogation of recovered women and girls by women police officers or in presence of women social workers; (g) appointment of special trafficking police officers and establishment of special courts for inter-state trafficking and (h) extension of the Act to cover all persons female or male who are exploited sexually for commercial purposes and the consequent amendment of the title of the Act.

Several notifications, amending and supplementing the earlier ones, have been noticed and included in this edition. The Appendices contain the Rules made by different States under the Act.



  • Gujarat Law Reporter : This book is useful to the social institutions, lawyers, Prosecution and the Police Department, Judges, Bench and the Bar and also for the Administrative Department in the Government connected with the subject. More than 200 cases are being incorporated in the book. In the Appendix, State rules under the Act have been given. This is an important feature, or to say, special feature of the book. The author is known for his various books in the field of law.
  • All India Reporter : Keeping in view the latest amendments and the case-law since the last edition, this book has been thoroughly revised and brought up-to-date. The Rules of a few more States have also been added and those already in the work amended. The book will be useful to the lawyers and social workers in this vital human problem.
