8 million people live in 'modern sl very' in India, says report; gt junks cm
NEW DELHI: In its latest report, the Global Slavery Index 2018 estimates that on any given day in 2016 there were nearly 8 million people living in “modern sl very” in India — a cm strongly contested by the go nment on the grounds that its parameters were poorly defined and too wide-ranging.
The report said that in terms of prevalence, there were 6.1 victims for every thousand people. Among 167 countries,, India ranked 53 with North Korea at the top of the list with 104.6 per 1,000 and Japan registering lowest prevalence rate of 0.3 per 1,000.
However, in absolute numbers India topped the list on prevalence.
found itself at 111 place with a prevalence rate of 2.8 per 1,000. Defining “modern sl very”, the Walk Free Foundation, which brought out the report said, “In the context of this report, modern sl very covers a set of specific legal concepts including forced labour, de t bondage, forced marriage, sl very and sl very-like practices, and human trafficking”.
Reacting to the report’s conclusions, offi als in the go nment who are associated with the framing of the anti-trafficking bill currently in the Lok Sabha questioned the definition adopted for the research and also the sample size for interviews and questions posed to those surveyed.
The view emerging from the ministry of women and child development was that the Index was “flawed” in its interpretations as the terminology used is very broad based and words like “forced labour” need a more detailed definition in the Indian context where socio-economic parameters are diverse and nuanced. Arbitrary application of criteria make estimates unreliable if not placed in social and economic context of a country.
The Foundation in its report pointed out that although modern sl very is not defined in law, it is used as an umbrella term which refers to situations of exploitation that a person cannot refuse or leave because of threats, violence, coercion, deception, and abuse of power.
The estimation data were drawn from 54 surveys conducted in 48 countries which included a module on Modern Slavery, with a total sample of 71,158 individual interviews.
Top brass at the WCD ministry have also questioned the sample size. “Is that not too small a number across such a diverse and wide spectrum of countries? Also questions like were `you ever forced to work’ by an employer or a recruiter or ever been forced to marry cannot be answered in simple yes and no or can confuse the respondent,” a senior offi al said.
