This research paper deals with the issue of Human Trafficking which has been a prime concern in the 21st century. Trafficking involves the involuntary mobility of people from a known place to an unknown place. Trafficking of women and children has become part of transnational organized crime and can be referred to as the dark side of globalization. Estimates indicate that more than 2 million women of India, Nepal, and Bangladesh origin are forced into the commercial sex trade, and of these, at least 50,000 are below the age of 18 years. India has failed to deal with the problems of human trafficking as a result for the past 5 consecutive years India is being placed on the tire-2 watch list of the United Nations. Poverty, ethnic conflicts, child marriage, unemployment, the lure of a job in the big cities, lack of educational facilities, and migration of laborers are some major reasons behind human trafficking. This research paper tries to analyze the setback that law and amendments have faced regarding the prevention of immoral and inhumane trafficking in India and also discusses issues related to why trafficking happens, find the reasons behind it, and also finds desirable solutions to the problems of human trafficking
