      “Can ‘Make in India’ work? Why India is not going to be the next China – or anything like China ever: (No Make In India): Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised he would promote a ‘Make in India’ revolution. Nearly four years later, a manufacturing revolution is nowhere in sight. Make in India was supposed to not just boost manufacturing, it was also supposed to generate employment. Estimates show there has been virtually no jobs growth”. Reported on December 30, 2017, 2:00 AM IST Kanti Bajpai-   India | TOI

      Defence Outsourced: Despite various govts going slow on hi-tech defence acquisitions, it now emerges that India is the largest weapons importer. This is ‘inglorious’ in the face of stridency over ‘desi’ production.

      Human trafficking-Smuggling Is the Greatest Human Tragedy- Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra: Human trafficking-smuggling in India: Human Trafficking is an umbrella term that is, problematically, often reduced to mean prostitution, when it involves sex trafficking. ... People are frequently illegally trafficked through India for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation and forced/bonded labour.

  “Human Trafficking is an umbrella term that is, problematically, often reduced to mean prostitution, when it involves sex trafficking. Article 3, paragraph (a) of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.
11.
  Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.
12.
   Human trafficking in India, although illegal under Indian law, remains a significant problem. People are frequently illegally trafficked through India for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation and forced/bonded labour. Although no reliable study of forced and bonded labour has been completed, NGOs[who?] estimate this problem affects[clarification needed] 20 to 65 million Indians. Men, women and children are trafficked in India for diverse reasons.
13.
   Women and girls are trafficked within the country for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation and forced marriage, especially in those areas where the sex ratio is highly skewed in favour of men. Men and boys are trafficked for the purposes of labour and may be sexually exploited by traffickers to serve as gigolos, massage experts, escorts, etc.
14.
   A significant portion of children are subjected to forced labour as factory workers, domestic servants, beggars, and agriculture workers, and have been used as armed combatants by some terrorist and insurgent groups.
15.
   India is also a destination for women and girls from Nepal and Bangladesh trafficked for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation. Nepali children are also trafficked to India for forced labour in circus shows.
16.   Indian women are trafficked to the Middle East for commercial sexual exploitation. Indian migrants who migrate willingly every year to the Middle East and Europe for work as domestic servants and low-skilled labourers may also end up part of the human trafficking industry.
17.
   In such cases, workers may have been 'recruited' by way of fraudulent recruitment practices that lead them directly into situations of forced labour, including debt bondage; in other cases, high debts incurred to pay recruitment fees leave them vulnerable to exploitation by unscrupulous employers in the destination countries, where some are subjected to conditions of involuntary servitude, including non-payment of wages, restrictions on movement, unlawful withholding of passports, and physical or sexual abuse. 18.   Human trafficking in India results in women suffering from both mental and physical issues. Mental issues include disorders such as PTSD, depression and anxiety. The lack of control women have in trafficking increases their risk of suffering from mental disorders. 19.   Women who are forced into trafficking are at a higher risk for HIV, TB, and other STDs. Condoms are rarely used and therefore there is a higher risk for victims to suffer from an STD. Filmmaker Manish Harishankar highlights the issue of child trafficking in India in his thriller film Chaarfutiya Chhokare, showing the problem, nexus, modus operandi and repercussions. The thriller film Thira, directed by Vineet Srinivasan, also addresses human trafficking in India”. Extract from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

   “Human trafficking is the greatest human tragedy that has fallen up on us. It has to be avoided and the younger generation has to be the torchbearers against it. Human trafficking constitutes a great menace to the present and the future generation,” the CJI said, while addressing an ‘International Conference on Human Trafficking’ in Delhi.
22.
   Justice Misra noted how “slavery was human trafficking of the past and it exists in a different way even today. The people, who are involved in human trafficking, think that human beings are commodities. I would like to say the commoditisation of human beings has become an industry and this is a growing industry that is not visible. It’s a different kind of syndicate.” The CJI stressed on the need to disrupt the demand supply chain.
23.
   The conference was organised by the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation in Law (SAARCLAW), along with Justice and Care, a multi-disciplinary organisation fighting human trafficking.
24.
   Among other speakers, Nepal Supreme Court judge Justice Sapana Pradhan Malla, in her special address, said that technology has created the market for human trafficking and has made victims more vulnerable.
25.
   “Technology has become a strong tool in the hands of perpetrators. It has made victims more vulnerable. The market it is creating is also exploiting victims and therefore we need to discuss on how to control and use technology to fight human trafficking,” noted judge Malla”. TOI

29.
  She said cyber space is not the exclusive domain of the perpetrators but rather a powerful tool in the hands of authorities.

  "Trafficking exist not because of a few thousand people commit it but because millions of people stay silent about it," Acting Chief Justice of Delhi High Court Justice Gita Mittal, in her presidential address, said, adding that effective prosecution of the kingpins of human traffickers has to be undertaken so as to eradicate the network of organised crime.
31.
  She said trafficking is completely demand-driven and explained the need to emulate the Nordic model which criminalises customers of sex trafficking.
32.
  "When the customers of sex trafficking are criminalised, it drives down the demand. This hits the very root of trafficking operations," Justice Mittal said.
33.
  Attorney General of India K K Venugopal, who also addressed the gathering, mentioned various statutes in the Indian legal system to curb the human trafficking.
34.
  He said boundaries which exist today do not stand in the way so far as the members of SAARC are concerned.
35.
  "We are hoping SAARC law as a catalyst in bringing together the citizens of SAARC countries as we are having a common heritage by culture and in some cases language," he said.
36.
  The event saw the presence of various SAARC country judges who spoke on the need for solutions to the technological challenges faced by the law enforcement agencies in curbing human trafficking.
37.
  "The use of technology in human trafficking is not extensively documented. However, experimental and anecdotal evidence shows that internet and other digital technologies are being used for the same," Adrian Philips, legal head at Justice and Care, said”. Business Standard

  “The CJI said that “what happens in human trafficking is a loss of identity.” Explaining this, he said “that doesn’t mean persons trafficked don’t remember their name, they have a loss of constitutional identity.” Trafficking was not just a social malady, but a socio-economic problem too, he said, and added that poverty was one reason.
39.
