Will push for amendments to labour laws posing hurdles: Narendra Singh Tomar 17.9.2014 DNA: Top News
Unfazed by opposition from trade unions, the government on Wednesday indicated that it will push for amendments to various labour laws that pose "hurdles" in development and have "lost relevance" in the present scenario. Labour Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that there can be differences of opinions but if there is a need for change in a particular law to fulfil the requirements of the country, then the government should not be hesitant in making changes. "If any law poses a hurdle for our development and has lost its relevance in the present scenario, then the law is not there so that we keep counting and keep studying it. Law is for implementation and creation. Law is there for solutions to problems of the country. "If there is a need for a change in the law, why should the government be hesitant in (doing) that? To fulfil the requirements of the country, there can be differences of opinions but if our intentions are good, then we should not hesitate in making a good policy... The Modi government ...

#dnaEdit: Shooting the messenger 16.9.2014 DNA: Top News
The Supreme Court’s insistence that advocate Prashant Bhushan disclose the identity of the whistle-blower who allegedly gave him the visitor diary maintained at CBI director Ranjit Sinha’s  official residence is a case of misplaced priorities. Admittedly, the Supreme Court was taking heed of Sinha’s claim that “90 per cent” of the diary was fabricated and his demand for revealing the whistle-blower. Ironically, Sinha is already on record admitting to have met many of the persons whose names figured in the visitor register, as extensively reported by several news outlets. But the question that merits asking is whether this drastic step was the only recourse left to ascertain the diary’s authenticity. In a country where nearly 40 whistle-blowers have been killed after their identities were unmasked and a Whistle Blowers Protection Act had to be enacted, this eagerness to unmask the informer, rather than probe the information made available, is untenable.  Section 4(6) of The Whistle Blowers Protection Act, ...

A mandatory driving licence and a maximum speed limit of 25 km per hour are among the conditions that the central government will impose for allowing plying of e-rickshaws, which had been banned by the Delhi High Court for want of regulations.
