Report No. 146

2.2. Limited scope.-

As these sections are confined to a transaction entered into for the specified purpose, their ambit is limited. Broadly speaking, the scope of the two sections is confined to sale or purchase, etc. for prostitution or illicit intercourse with any person or for any unlawful and immoral purpose. Explanation II to section 372 (which applies to section 373 also) defines "illicit intercourse" as meaning "sexual intercourse between persons not united by marriage or by any union or tie which, though not amounting to a marriage, is recognised by the personal law or custom of the community to which they belong or, where they belong to different communities, of both such communities, as constituting between them a quasi-marital relation."
