Human Rights are one of those fundamental rights particularly every individual has from birth, regardless of religion, sex, color, or nationality, and are enshrined in the third part of our constitution, known as ‘Fundamental Rights’. However, many people are denied these rights for a variety of reasons, the most serious of which exists ‘human trafficking. Human Trafficking means the exploitation and business of human beings for sexual slavery, labor, exploitation, forced marriages, and many other reasons. Millions of women, men, and youngsters are afflicted, including the maximum vulnerable members of migratory communities, asylum seekers, and refugees. This global issue is impacting the victims in a very serious manner in the form of physical and mental damage and the victims also face a lack of independent living skills. Apart from the victims, it has also impacted traffickers due to money and cheap labor. Unfortunately, despite having so many laws and international conventions against this matter but we have somehow failed to tackle this problem of human trafficking. The paper explores what human trafficking is and what is the history behind this issue, the human trafficking trade in India, violation of rights mentioned in the constitution of India, laws against human trafficking, international conventions, cross border trafficking, and the effects of human trafficking. This paper also aims to study whether these legal measures are successful and it will also discuss how to combat this problem.
