Indian government starts process for financial inclusion of sex workers

By Ambika Pandit

In a move that will benefit those at the margins of society, the Centre has set in motion the process to see how survivors of sex trafficking and those caught in the web of commercial sexual exploitation can be brought into the framework of “financial inclusion”. A high-level task force among other things will now study how banking facilities can reach this section of society and linkages forged to connect them to advantages of financial inclusion.

The first meeting with the task force is expected to be held next week.
