With the new Delhi government passing new laws to restrict advertising in newspapers and online, sex workers in India’s capital are being forced to raise the bar with these ideas to protect themselves.

With the new policy, which takes effect on July 1, the government says advertisements targeting women in public spaces and advertising them as having sexual services are banned and prostitution and sex trafficking is punishable with jail terms of up to three years.

The rules come into effect in the capital of the world’s second-largest democracy.

According to an analysis by Amnesty International, the new law will likely see a surge in human trafficking cases, and the sex workers will have to deal with increasing pressures to comply with the rules.

Amnesty’s report on India’s anti-trafficking campaign highlights that there are currently about 3,000 sex workers registered with the government, and that many have not received any support from authorities or the police to protect them from abuse.

Amanda Janssen, Amnesty International’s regional Asia director, told ABC News that while the new rules will increase the risk of human trafficking, they could also help to stop violence against women.

For many women, prostitution is the only way to make a living, but India’s controversial sex industry is rife with violence and exploitation.

The laws passed by India’s parliament and signed by the prime minister on Friday will also put an end to prostitution and pornography, and will prohibit online solicitation of sex.

The new laws came in response to complaints from sex workers that the law was overly broad and did not include specific requirements for sexual acts and conditions of employment.

The law also calls for “voluntary separation” of sex workers from their employers, though it does not specify what that would entail.

Amruta Sharma, a sex worker and activist who lives in New Delhi, said she was “shocked” by the new legislation, but also felt “betrayed” by it.

“I feel like they [the government] have lost their sense of morality and are completely against me and my work,” Sharma told ABCNews.

“They have done so much to put India on the map.”

While Sharma said she feels that the new laws are not enough, she hopes the government will consider addressing human trafficking issues with their next move.

The Delhi government has promised to work with the International Red Cross to find and train sex workers and will help them find other jobs in the city, according to a statement released by the government.

Amnesty International is calling on the government to ensure that the sex worker training is voluntary, and to make the law a national priority.

“India’s government must be ready to make an effort to support the rights of sex worker communities by offering more training and protection to help protect them against trafficking and violence,” Janssensaid.
