SUPREME COURT OF INDIA

SUPREME COURT OF INDIA

The directions of the Supreme Court of India on evolving proper schemes for sex workers across the country were highlighted in a report by our Legal Correspondent published in The Hindu of August 3, 2011. In its order of August 2, the Bench of Justices Markandey Katju and Gyan Sudha Misra commended the panel it had constituted, which is headed by senior counsel Pradip Ghosh, for going about the task assigned to it “in right earnest.” Noting that it would take time to rehabilitate sex workers in India, the court observed that “it is ultimately the people of the country, particularly the young people, who by their idealism and patriotism can solve the massive problems of sex workers.” The court particularly appealed to the youth of the country to “offer their services in a manner which the panel may require so that the sex workers can be uplifted from their present degraded condition.”

The Supreme Court asked people willing to help to contact the panel at the email id: panelonsexworkers@ gmail.com

    Superb observations and directions by the Supreme Court of India. It is a high time for real action. In almost most of the cases young girls and women are forced to take up the profession of prostitution because of poverty. – Ivo Oscar Faleiro.
