Trafficking in Person (TIP) is a major form of violence in Nepal and has
been recognised as a crime against the state. Before 2007, it was punishable
under the Human Trafficking Chapter (Jiu Mashne Bechne-ko Mahal) under
the Country Code (1963) and through a special legislation, the Human
Trafficking Control Act (1986). In 2007 a new law was enacted, the Human
Trafficking and Transportation (Control) Act (hereon the 2007 TIP Act),
which aimed to ensure a more victim-centric and comprehensive approach
to the prosecution of human trafficking.
