Every day, children and women are being trapped by traffickers posing as placement agents, forcing them into conditions of modern slavery. It’s time to call on the Delhi Government to help end human trafficking by enacting the law to regulate placement agencies.

“Every time I look into the mirror I regret the day I decided to go to Delhi.”
– a 15-year old girl rescued from domestic slavery.

Trafficked into Delhi, she was physically tortured and psychologically traumatized. But there are thousands more like her who are less fortunate – hidden behind closed doors in affluent households of the capital city, trapped into a life of modern slavery.

Trafficking for forced labor is common across India. There are innumerable children and women who go missing from Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, Assam and other states every year. With rising poverty and natural disasters, more and more children are dropping out of school. Lack of support from authorities makes them more vulnerable to being lured by fake placement agencies in search of a better life.

Thankfully, the High Court has asked the government of Delhi to draft a law regulating placement agencies. This regulation can be instrumental in identifying traffickers posing as placement agents, and will be a big step towards ending trafficking of people into Delhi for domestic slavery.

Ask the government of Delhi to help end trafficking of people into domestic servitude.

  • May 2016: The government proposed a new Anti-Trafficking Bill, which is intended to address the issues covered under the Delhi Private Placement Agency (Regulation) Bill.

  • December 2014: The Delhi Government has agreed to comply with the High Court’s Executive Order that was issued in December 2013 to regulate recruitment agencies for domestic work. We are keeping the pressure up to ensure that this important legislation is passed by the Delhi Assembly.

Many tea blends include tea from Assam, where people get poverty wages, scared to speak up & have no way out. The big tea brands – Unilever (PG Tips, Lipton), Twinings, Apeejay (Typhoo), Yorkshire Tea, Tata (Tetley) & Clipper – well aware of this but aren’t doing enough to challenge it. #whopickedmytea? Work long hours in the tea gardens carrying heavy loads, often without proper equipment or shoes. Workers are paid just £1.50 a day & are supposed to be provided adequate housing …

I did not know that tea plantations were so despicable! I guess I change to the plants that our forest here provides. Healthier, anyway.

India has dragged its feet on protecting its woman and girls for far too long! So long, in fact, it’s an international scandal. Is it because there’s so many abusers and rapists in the police and at the highest levels of government? It is sad that that even the Taj Mahal is less associated with India now than your egregious treatment of your mothers, sisters, daughters etc. it is not enough to give lip service to ending all forms of domestic slavery.

If the government does not take action to protect citizens in his country, who will do it. The government is too low in acting and yet every month they get paid to do nothing.

Central Government should take the action, L..G and his secretariat. Delhi comes under central Territory.
Mr Kejriwal can plan but for implementation ,he has to go on hunger strike, Dharna, even though no surety from center.

Dear Mr Arvind Kejriwal Hon Chief Minister of Delhi,

Children and women go missing in India every day. Many of them are being duped and sold in Delhi for domestic slavery.

I request you to help stop human trafficking by enacting the Delhi Private Placement Agency (Regulation) Bill, 2012 that will:

– define rights of a domestic worker
– register all placement agencies
– form a committee to verify credentials of all placement agencies
– ban employment of children by placement agencies
– set up complaint redressal forums
– make provisions to perform surprise checks on placement agencies
– guarantee minimum wage
– make provisions to provide legal aid, welfare mechanisms, social security benefits to domestic workers
– ensure placement agencies implement the social security scheme

Please act now to help end trafficking for domestic servitude.

Freedom United will protect your privacy while updating you on campaigns, news and stories about modern slavery.
