This policy approach paper has developed as an outcome of NCPCR-led intervention on the issue of trafficking of vulnerable migrant children. It is estimated that there are approximately 15 million (2011) child migrants in India, who constitute the children not enrolled in schools and who are dropouts. The process of migration, especially the distress migration, often leads to trafficking in person, as migration is distinguished from human trafficking by a very thin-line. The migrant workers were given the impression that they are migrating for decent job, but remain no choice when they are given in the custody of some other contractor.
