State Govt takes up anti-trafficking measures
The Women and Child Development and Social Welfare and the Labour Department have come together to check incidents of child trafficking in the State. A State-level action plan has been chalked out to stop and investigate incidents of trafficking.
While placing her department’s Budget for financial year 2019-20, the Women and Child Development said that steps are being taken to identify the placement agencies that are allegedly involved in trafficking.
The Labour Department will conduct probes to ascertain if the agencies involved in trafficking have any registration from it.
During her speech, the minister also said that the budgetary allocation for her department has gone up by 6.6 per cent.
