                                        Proposed Irretrievable Breakdown Of Marriage Act.


             The Marriage Laws (Amendment)Bill,2010,was first introduced in Rajya sabha
              on 4th August,2010.The Bill sought to amend the Hindu Marriage Act,1955 
              and the Special Marriage Act,1954 to provide for Irretrievable Breakdown
              of Marriages as new ground for for grant of a decree of divorce; and to 
              provide certain safeguards to protect the interests of wife & children.

              According to CRISP,an NGO dedicated to the cause of Child Rights & Shared
              Parenting,the government is planning to introduce this draft bill is to change 
              Hindu Marriage Act.They had strongly opposed the Bill in its then form.They
              are opposing it still as they feel it is not pro-family or protecting child rights
              but only wife centric and the bill is unfair to men.

              Concerns of CRISP regarding the Bill:
              1. The Bill,out rightly violates the essence of Article 15 of the Constitution 
                   which prohibits discrimination against any citizen on the grounds
                   of religion OR gender.                       
              2.  There is no protection for children to be connected to both parents through
                    Shared parenting plan as there is a presumption, that children will  
                   remain only with the mother.Studies shows single parenting is adverse to
                   the welfare of the child.
               3. These amendments are aimed at only The Hindu Marriages Act of 1955, 
                    and  why not amendments to all marriage laws that are applicable in the 
                    country ?.
               4.  The Bill plans to introduce a mechanism for a portion of the self 
                     earned,and inheritable property of the husband to be transferred 
                     to the divorced wife.

                CRISP says that they donot oppose the Bill per-se,but they want the 
                amendments  to be fair to both men & women.

ENDING THE PAINFUL SILENCE: FORTIS HOSPITALS LAUNCHES  COMPREHENSIVE 
"CENTRE FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS CARE"

Millions of women ignore the painful & traumatic symptoms 
of Endometriosis,a painful gynaecological disorder that occurs in women mostly in their prime.In this condition,the tissue that normally lines the inside 
of the uterus,the endometrium,
grows outside the uterus on the surface of organs in the pelvic & abdominal areas.Dr.Anu Sridhar,Conultant gynaecologist,
Dr.Manisha Singh,Consultant Gynaecologist & Infertility
Specialist,Fortis Hospitals addressing media.

therapy".

It can also be called a lifestyle disease when women push themselves hard in career.
Endometriosis is found in one out of Ten women.
"Unfortunately,the disease is often diagnosed very late or wrongly diagnosed,thus 
delaying treatment.Endometriosis can start as early as a girl's first  period & affect 
her till she reaches menopause." says Dr.Manisha Singh,Consultant Gynaecologist 
& Infertility specialist at Fortis Hospitals.

EDITORIAL.

                                     LOWERING OF INTEREST RATES FOR LENDING.

                 The Finance Minister Mr.Arun Jaitley called for lowering of interest rates
                 to trigger growth.He says that the current interest rates are  disincentive. 
                 As inflation is stabilising he sees there is room for reduction of 
                 interest.But the Reserve Bank of India  does not seem to buy this 
                 argument.As Central bank they feel that the time is not still ripe for 
                 reduction and wish to wait for sometime till the inflation really 
                 stabilises .Both the arguments seem to be right.But can pure economics 
                 outweigh certain ground realities?.

                 If the Central bank reduces interest rates,the commercial banks will also
                 reduce their own interest rates.Lower interest rates make loans cheaper
                 which may lead to aggregate demand and spur economic growth.However,
                 it may even cause inflationery pressure which is worrying the RBI.What
                 worries the government is low credit offtake and the poor performance of
                 the manufacturing sector.Higher NPA's in the banking sector has lead to
                 "defensive banking" and the banks are shy of lending to manufacturing 
                 sector for the fear of adding more to the NPA's.This trend is not healthy 
                 in the long run.

                 One thing is sure,lower interest rates makes borrowing cheap which will
                 give a boost to the manufacturing sector and the demand for credit may
                 increase .This may even lead to higher economic growth and an increase
                 in real GDP.The government with people's mandate has certain duties
                 to perform like giving a boost to manufacturing sector which may lead to
                 increase in employment and also has to fulfil the Prime Minister's "Make
                 in India" for the world campaign.

                             CAN WE HAVE A LAW LIKE 'THE FOREIGN ACCOUNT
                             TAX COMPLIANCE ACT (FATCA)  OF USA?.

                  The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act is a U.S.Law enacted in
                  2010 as part of the Hiring Incentives To Restore Employment (HIRE)
                  Act. FATCA requires financial institutions outside the United States
                  to determine whether it has any customers who are U.S.Citizens and
                  report information on all of those customers' accounts to the Internal
                  Revenue Service (IRS).Any bank refusing to comply will be assessed
                  an automatic withholding Tax on its US source income.Eventhough
                  it has not even  fully gone  into effect yet (the first information 
                  exchange will take place in 2015),the law is widely viewed as a
                  'game changer ' in global information exchange and helped pave 
                  the way for other countries' commitments to a multi lateral
                 information exchange system. Source : Global Financial Integrity.

                 The G-20 nations declared in 2013 that the automatic exchange is
                 "the new Global standard" & pledged to begin exchanging
                 financial information automatically by the end of 2015.

                Global Financial Integrity estimates that in 2011,US$946.7 billion
                left developing countries in illicit financial outflows.

EDITORIAL.

                                                    DO WE REQUIRE MORE BANKS ?.


             We understand Reserve Bank of India shortly  will invite applications for
             setting up of small finance & payment banks. The proposed bank will be
             catering to the low income households and small businesses.

             The Reserve Bank Governor Mr.Raghuram Rajan, wish to deepen the
              financial inclusion and this is a step towards that direction.Already, the 
             banking sector is crowded with State Bank and its subsidiaries,20 Public
             sector banks,foreign banks,Private banks (both Old & New) and 
             Cooperative Banks(both Scheduled & Un Scheduled).Added to this there
             are Cooperative Societies operating which are catering to some  sectors.
             Further, there are NBFC's, Development Financial Institutions like SIDBI,
             TFCI, IFCI,NABARD etc. In this crowded financial environment,do we 
             require some more more banks which we may call  by any name?. 
             The Post offices  along with State Bank group and the Public sector 
             banks have deep rural penetration which will deliver the desired results.
             The government started Bharatiya Mahila Bank last year  for women
             empowerment which should achieve the objectives of financing the 
             needs of women entrepreneurs both (small & Medium).RBI has 
             already given new bank licences to IDFC & Bandhan to start banks. 
             We donot know when the banks will start operation?.

             Hence, RBI must rethink on this idea of starting small finance & 
             Payment banks and instead reorganise,reorient and energise the 
             existing financial system to deliver the desired results.Earlier, the 
             government was thinking of consolidating the banking system by 
             merging banks so that the country will have few banks with large 
             capital & funding capabilities.But presently,the new government 
             is thinking of smaller banks to cater to the large population of 
             this country. Will the smaller banks be viable is the moot question?.

                         WHY DID BJP OPT FOR VOICE VOTE INSTEAD OF
                            NUMBERS IN MAHARASHTRA?.                                                  
                   Mr.Fadnavis is seeking the vote of confidence for the first time and 
                   that too in the new assembly.The political pundits wonder why the 
                   BJP lead government which was confident of winning the vote of  
                   Confidence with the support of NCP should go for the voice vote                                                          instead of the numbers. The new Chief Minister of 
                   Maharashtra in his own interest and on behalf of the party should  
                   have Preferred the numbers instead of voice vote which is now 
                   disputed by the Congress Party and Shiv Sena. Though ,the Chief 
                   Minister Mr.Fadnavis said if the Congress party and Shiv Sena  
                   wants, they can move a No Confidence Motion,but that is fire fighting.  

                   Though the decision of the Speaker is final, the new Chief Minister 
                   of Maharashtra should have started his political career in a better 
                   note .Had the Vote of Confidence was put to vote with numbers,the
                   BJP would have won it and would have even exposed few 
                   members IF, there was any cross voting .

                     Swach Bharat Campaign announced by the Prime Minister is a very
                     good campaign and it should be a movement all over the country to
                     keep the country clean.But,of late, what is happening is, the 
                     politicians and celebrities have hijacked the campaign for their 
                     promotion and using it as a photo op. Here, the media also should 
                     play the role by not giving prominence to such photo ops.Instead, 
                     they should focus on simple and common people and also the 
                     people who really keep our cities clean.

                                                                 MAHARASHTRA AND HARYANA.


                  The elections in Maharashtra and Haryana have given few lessons to the
                  political parties including the Indian National Congress and also  for the 
                 regional parties. There are only Two formidable National Parties i.e 
                 Congress (INC) and the emerging and dynamic BJP under Narendra Modi &
                 Amit Shah.One thing, the Congress party should learn,adopt and apply is 
                 a new paradigm set by BJP who has understood the aspirations of the 
                 people especially,the youth. The way the political parties were running   
                 their outfits earlier,may no longer will be able to  sustain themselves if  
                they continue to function, being blind to the hard realities. Sooner they 
                change , better for them.

        United Nations Security Council without India is

                                A club of the Elite & irrelevant.


Every 6th person in the world (man or woman) is an Indian. India has 1.2 billion 
people. India is an ancient country with 5000 years of culture & civilisation .
There are countries who are permanent members of the security Council whose
geography, the population and the civilisation is less than India are members of the 
Security Council who have veto powers.Keeping India out of Security Council is the
biggest joke of the century. The Prime Minister of India Mr.Narendra Modi has rightly
called upon the International community to recognise the importance & contribution
of India to the world.

Further, Mr.Modi has rightly said that there should be an INTERNATIONAL YOGA 
DAY  as India  gave Yoga to the world which is being practiced all over the
world for healthyliving.

                             proud.The Prime Minister Mr.Narendra Modi rightly said that the 
                             ISRO has made it a  habit to achieve the impossible. It makes us  
                             doubly proud when we knew that India is the first country to 
                             achieve this in the first attempt that too at a less cost.This  Rs.450 
                             crore Inter Planetary Mission is the cheapest even when compared                                                       to  NASA's Mar's Mission MAVEN.

                             After completing 666 million Kms journey in more than 10
                             months,the spacecraft  MANGALYAAN will now study the

                                                         PAKISTAN CALLED OFF.

        The Secretary level Talks between India and Pakistan called off today. Even if
        the talks continued,we donot know what the agenda was. Is it only to shake 
        hands and photo oppurtunities  to say to the world that the talks was  
        successful ?.The new Prime Minister of India,Mr.Narendra Modi invited the 
        Heads of all SAARC countries to participate in the swearing in Ceremony. 
        Everybody responded and attended the swearing in ceremony which was             
        a good gesture from all sides.
        Pakistan talking to separatists is not new thing. Even earlier governments 
        are aware of it. Now, what is the road forward?.

       1.Put India Pakistan talks on hold for few months.2. Work out a clear cut agenda
          for talks without the "K" word. 3.Let us build our relationships with our other 
         neighbours. 4.India should expand Economic & commercial ties with our 
         neighbours including Pakistan.If Pakistan responds positively involve them, 
         if not,ignore them 5.People to people ties with Pakistan and also sporting  
         activities should be given priority.6.Till now our entire diplomatic 
         concentration is centred around Pakistan which should be reviewed and                                            we should reorient our foreign policy.
