Since time immemorial, human trafficking has been commonplace. It’s a scourge on the nation as a whole, causing everlasting misery and weakening one’s bodily as well as mental well-being. The phrases “growth” and “development” are unfamiliar to them. Discrimination and humiliation are a major part of their daily lives. Human rights and social justice have never been more in jeopardy than they are now. As many as 27 million people throughout the globe are victims of human trafficking, according to a new US government assessment. Protecting their fundamental human rights and providing children with an atmosphere that fosters their development and protects them from the evils of the world is very vital. It is true that laws and procedures are in place to help persons like this, but there are still many roadblocks in the way. There is a need to better comprehend this problem in order to ensure that all victims of human trafficking in the nation are given equal status and that their growth and development is encouraged and supported. Many victims of trafficking in India endure intimidation, humiliation, difficulty in prosecution, and a significant chance of re-victimization in their own country, which is the focus of this study. Further victim-centered activities are deemed important by the publication to both aid victims and serve as a solid foundation for future human trafficking cases. Consequently, the study intends to examine the state of human trafficking legislation in India and the obstacles that victims confront in India.
