Q. Need help in clarifying prostitution laws in India

Hello,
After finding out cash-for-sex is legal in India, My friend introduced me to a lady who is into prostitution as she needs huge money.Then I had sex with her for some money in a private place. After knowing what I've done is completely legal after reading ITPA act 1956 and SITA 1986, the lady herself asked me to refer some of my friends.

My doubt is will i be arrested for pimping/soliciting even though i got her permission ? (There was no physical abuse/force towards the woman)

Also, SITA & ITPA acts says that a woman can perform cash-for-sex in a private place but cannot solicit for customers. How can a woman get clients without soliciting or asking for referrals?

Please clear my doubts

A. Dear Client,
Since you have already known these two Acts , it is easier for you to handle without seeking this advice in the public platform.
