Nonetheless as the researchers further researched, there are other provisions governing the beggars but however the effectiveness of the provisions is not yet proven. The research conducted has detected several loopholes and weaknesses where the provisions are insufficient in combating the beggars. The research also has taken into account the view from the law enforcers that deal with these beggars on the practicality of the law. The research also has look into other countries such as Singapore, India and Philippines, regarding their law on beggars.

The research has suggested some ways in curbing and also preventing the problem from arisen. Along with that the researchers have suggested an amendment should be made to the Destitute Persons Act 1977.
