Centre for Internet & Society

On 18 May 2018 Gurshabad Grover on behalf of CIS presented comments on the Trafficking (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill 2018 at a meeting of the Inter Movements Open Forum jointly organised by Sangram, Naz Foundation, NNSW, Tarshi and VAMP. The meeting was held at India International Centre in New Delhi.

Gurshabad's presentation was based on Swaraj's blogpost and subsequent research by Kumarjeet that highlights certain problematic sections (36, 39, 41, 59) in the Bill which may have an adverse impact on freedom of expression, and may additionally change the landscape of intermediary liability rules in India.

Clarification (18th August, 2018): A letter sent to the Ministry of Women and Child Development mentioned the Centre for Internet & Society as instituionally endorsing a critique of the The Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2018. We seek to clarify that the Centre for Internet & Society did not endorse the letter to the Ministry.
