This unit would also liaise with NGOs involved in this field. A helpline number 011-24368638 has been established by CBI, on which any person having inputs about such gangs can give information.

It has also been decided that person giving information leading to arrest and criminal action against such gangs would be rewarded upto Rs. two lakh.

The Government of India has already designated all Police Officers of the rank of Inspector and above in CBI as "Trafficking Police Officers" to exercise powers of investigation under the "Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, 1956" and other laws dealing with sexual exploitation of persons.
