It is an undeniable truth that the sex trade is a never-ending activity. By seeing it as a form of legitimate activity, all stakeholders can receive guaranteed benefits. It will effectively reduce the burden on the government in terms of making laws against prostitution and paying for more law enforcement. This paper aims to analyse the impact of legalisation of prostitution and its advantage on the economy and society and the paper addresses the connection between prostitution and exploitation and violence, as well as the potential impacts of legalising and regulating prostitution on the abuse of sex workers. This paper is on the move to investigate the aspects of permitting prostitution as a profession in India and whether it can actually be practiced in society looking at the various social and legal issues that exist in our nation, or would only be one of the many aspirations that remain on papers. The decisions of the Supreme Court and the various high courts will be considered when issues of prostitution have been considered and addressed. The conclusion will contain a framework for issues submitted in the paper.
