If the victim is a minor, the jail has been enhanced from five to seven years.

This new legal provision will veritably open up a Pandora's box, as placement agencies in big metros like Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai, often resort to "trafficking" to provide domestic servants to working couple and families in dire need of helps.

The definition "exploitation by force, threat, fraud or inducement" appears to be very wide and could lead to a plethora of cases, real or imaginary, with police getting a free hand to harass citizens, even though they are unaware of the "sourcing" of domestic helps by placement agencies.

The Justice J S Verma committe had recommended that the government should bring laws  relating to trafficking in line with internationa standards.
