Objections over missing names will be taken up in NRC final draft from August 30, says Supreme Court 16.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
A bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi directed the state quadrant to give the list of people who are out of the NRC draft list.

Earlier today, DNA had reported that the Assam chapter of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) will train 250 volunteers with legal and IT expertise in order to assist people of Assam who had been left out of the National Register of Citizens. “There are about 3.5 lakh people from south Assam who have been left out from the NRC and in the first phase we intend to help at least one lakh people getting their documents straight for reapplication,” said Noorul Islam, zonal president (south Assam), JIH.

From India's development to condemning rape, here are the top quotes from PM Modi's I-Day speech 15.8.2018 DNA: India
  In his last Independence Day address ahead of the next Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today spoke at length about the progress India has made under his government and asserted that its rise is being hailed by the world. Modi drew a comparison between the situation in 2013 and how things stand today and said if the pace of the UPA government's last year was maintained, it would have taken decades, centuries and generations to build as many toilets, distribute as many LPG connections among the poor and lay down as much optical fibre as his government has done. The country is brimming with self-confidence today and forging ahead with a new sense of commitment, he said. "India is moving forward at a new pace," he said. Modi also spoke about the recent Monsoon Session of Parliament and said it was dedicated to social justice, with measures being taken to protect the interests of Dalits, deprived people, tribals, women and the backwards. "We have to ensure social justice for all and create ...

Monsoon Session 2018: Consensus over Triple Talaq Bill eludes again 11.8.2018 DNA: Money
The government failed to pass the draft Bill making triple talaq a cognisable offence on the last day of Monsoon Session as the parties failed to arrive at a consensus in the Rajya Sabha on the provisions of the Bill. "The Triple Talaq Bill will not be taken up today because no consensus could be built around it," Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu said as the House sat after lunch on the last day of the session. The House is expected to take up the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017, in the winter session of Parliament. The Centre, in the meantime, is mulling over bringing an ordinance to enact the law. The original Bill was passed by the Lok Sabha last year, but had hit a road block in the Rajya Sabha where the BJP-led NDA is in minority. The government had moved the Bill almost immediately after the Cabinet gave nod on changes to its provisions diluting two contentious provisions with the hope that the Opposition will let it pass in the upper house. The changes allow only a ...

Triple Talaq: Cabinet approves provision of bail by magistrate 9.8.2018 DNA: India
The Union Cabinet today approved inclusion of a provision of granting bail to men found guilty of giving instant triple talaq to their wives, sources in the government said. Giving instant triple talaq will continue to be illegal and void and will attract a jail term of three years for the husband. The 'Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill' was cleared by Lok Sabha and is pending in Rajya Sabha where the government lacks numbers. Provision of bail was one of the demands of the opposition parties. Under the amendments cleared today, the magistrate will have powers to grant bail, the sources said. The proposed law would only be applicable on instant triple talaq or 'talaq-e-biddat' and it would give power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking "subsistence allowance" for herself and minor children. A woman can also seek the custody of her minor children from the magistrate who will take a final call on the issue.  The Modi government has been trying to get the Triple Talaq bill ...

Bill to restore original SC/ST atrocity law passed by Lok Sabha 6.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
A Bill to overturn a Supreme Court order concerning certain safeguards against arrest under the SC/ST law was unanimously passed by the Lok Sabha today. The Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill 2018 rules out any provision for anticipatory bail for a person accused of atrocities against SC/STs, notwithstanding any court order. It also provides that no preliminary enquiry will be required for registering a criminal case and an arrest under this law would not be subject to any approval. Replying to the debate on the bill, Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Thaawar Chand Gehlot asserted that the NDA government favoured reservation "and will continue to be in favour reservation for SC/ST". The amendment, he said, will strengthen the legislative provisions to protect SC/ST. The move to amend the Bill is being seen by the Opposition as a reach-out by the BJP-led NDA government to Dalits, ahead of their proposed nationwide protest later this month to demand ...

NRC is a legal process, don’t misinterpret it, says experts 6.8.2018 DNA: Top News
The National Register of Citizens (NRC) is a legal process that should not be misunderstood, said experts during an interactive session organised on NRC. The interactive session was held at Assam Bhawan in Navi Mumbai on Sunday that saw many natives from Assam participate. "The influx of migrants is not new in Assam. It started during the British period which continues till date," said Samudra Gupta Kashyap, a senior journalist and a native of Assam. The NRC, which was published on July 31, has seen varied responses from political parties. While a section started criticising the BJP government for excluding around 40 lakh people, there are sections supporting the NRC. "They have reasons to support it," said Kashyap. Kashyap drew attention on why the need for NRC was felt and how Bangladeshi migrants changed the demography of nine districts in Assam. At present, 34.22 per cent population of the population in Assam is Muslim. "People live in fear of being swamped due to the continuous influx of migrants," ...
