INTRODUCTION.
Prostitution is the sale of sexual services for money. A prostitute is a person, "who allows her body to be used for lewd purposes in return for payment". It is not a problem which exists in India but exists throughout the world. India is home today to Asia's largest red-light district--Mumbai's infamous Kamathipura. ; G.B. road in Delhi .

According to the Human Rights Watch report, 15 million prostitutes of varied age groups, live and work in India. Most of the girls are brought from Nepal and Bangladesh. ''Young girls are trafficked from Nepal to brothels in Mumbai and Kolkata at an average age of twelve.

CAUSES.
The majority of sex workers in India work as prostitutes due to lacking resources to support themselves or their children. Most do not choose this profession out of preference, but out of necessity, often after the breakup of a marriage or after being disowned and thrown out of their homes by their families. Lover giving false hope of marriage or job and selling to brothel. Unknown person/accidental meeting with pimp. Aged sex workers from same village or locality.

Also prevalent in Indian prostitution is the Chukri System, whereby a female is coerced into prostitution to pay off debts, as a form of bonded labour. In this system, the prostitute generally works without pay for one year or longer to repay a supposed debt to the brothel owner for food, clothes, make-up and living expenses. Some women and girls are by tradition born into prostitution to support the family. The Bachara, for example, follow this tradition with eldest daughters often expected to be prostitutes.
