There are two issues to be discussed in this paper The two principal Indian laws that address trafficking and prostitution in particular are: The Suppression of Immoral Traffic in Women and Girls Act of 1956 (SITA) and The Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act of 1986 (ITPA), colloquially called PITA, an amendment to SITA.
