PILs in SC for strict population control measures 18.2.2018 General News
Three separate petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the Centre to ensure strict population control measures by adopting a two-child policy and reward or punish those who adhere or fail to follow it. The petitions, filed by advocates Anuj Saxena, Prathvi Raj Chauhan and Priya Sharma, claimed that statistics relating to population growth indicate that by 2022, the population of India is likely to pass the 1.5 billion mark. The PILs, which are likely to come up for hearing next week, also said that unemployment, poverty, illiteracy, poor health, pollution and global warming are a few effects of the population explosion that is being experienced in the country.

The PILs also claimed that since India has the youngest workforce in the ..

SC verdict to resolve disputes between Ktk and TN on Cauvery 16.2.2018 General News
The Supreme Court today delivered a crucial verdict to resolve the decades-old dispute between southern riparian states over Cauvery river water sharing by hiking Karnataka's share by 14.75 tmcft and reducing Tamil Nadu's quantum while compensating it by allowing extraction of 10 tmcft groundwater from the river basin. Maintaining that the issue of drinking water has to be placed on a "higher pedestal", the top court enhanced Karnataka's share from 270 tmcft to 284.75 tmcft on account of water for drinking and domestic requirements, while lowering Tamil Nadu's share of water from 419 tmcft to 404.25 tmcft but allowing it to extract 10 tmcft of groundwater from the river basin. The apex court, which modified the 2007 award of Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal (CWDT) with respect to Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, retained the share of Kerala at 30 tmcft and Puducherry at 7 tmcft, out of a total of 740 tmcft. Besides this, 10 thousand million cubic feet (tmcft) of water would be used for ...

How data collection by State different from voluntary sharing, 1.2.2018 General News
The Supreme Court today asked as to how collection of data by the State under the Aadhaar scheme was different when people voluntarily surrendered details for making payments for insurance, bills and car instalments. The observation was made by a five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra which is hearing a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of government's flagship Aadhaar scheme and the enabling 2016 law. "What if someone else like a bank offered to make all your transactions for you and you give standing instructions, like for insurance payments, bill payments, car instalments etc. What is the qualitative difference? "My bank maintains a central repository of all my transactions. We are constantly entering into a world of surrendering our identity. It may be a choice but it is still a central database. If we are willing to surrender our identity, then does the fact that the State is collecting information make a ...
