Integrated Action Plan for Trafficked Victims’ Rehabilitation on Anvil
Union Minister for Women and Child Development Renuka Chowdhury on Tuesday said that an action plan for rehabilitation and reintegration of trafficked victims into mainstream is on anvil.

Trafficking of women is the biggest of obscenities and "we need to raise our voices against it," Chowdhary said while presiding over a workshop organised by her ministry and United Nations Office on Drug and Crime.

She also emphasised on the need for increased awareness, greater resources and improved co-ordination to contain trafficking.

Highlighting the role of civil society, Chowdhury said: "The Government has launched 'Ujjawala' - a scheme for rehabilitation of the victims and has proposed amendments in immoral Traffic Act to check the revictimisation of victims."

Overseas Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi said that government is making provisions to fix the minimum wages for domestic helps, going abroad, by making amendments in Immigration Act.
