There is no proposal to legalise prostitution in the country, Government today informed Parliament.
"No, it does not arise," Minister of Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi said in a written reply in Lok Sabha to a question in this regard.
She, however, said they have implemented a comprehensive scheme for prevention of trafficking and rescue as well as rehabilitation and reintegration of victims of sexual exploitation.
To a separate question, she said 69 complaints of sexual abuse and other irregularities in child care institutions were received by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights between 2011-12 to 2014-15.
Uttar Pradesh alone reported 12 complaints and eight complaints were from Delhi and Haryana.
