  8. Section 377 of IPC Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code dating back to 1861, introduced during the British rule criminalises sexual activities against the order of nature, including homosexual activities. The section was read down with respect to sex between consenting adults by the Delhi High Court in 2009. That judgement was overturned by the Supreme Court in 2013 with the Court holding that amending or repealing section 377 should be a matter left to Parliament, not the judiciary . On February 2016, the final hearing of the curative petition submitted by the Naz Foundation and others came for hearing in the SC. . On 24 August 2017 in a landmark judgment (known as the Puttuswamy judgment), the SC had upheld the Right to Privacy as a fundamental right under the Constitution. The Puttuswamy judgment is believed to have implications for section 377 as consensual sexual acts in private can no longer be overseen by law. CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST

  14. Early Harvest Package Early harvest scheme is a precursor to a free trade agreement (FTA) between two trading partners. This is to help the two trading countries to identify certain products for tariff liberalisation pending the conclusion of FTA negotiation. It is primarily a confidence building measure. A good example of an EHS is between India and Thailand signed in October 2003, wherein 83 products were identified to be reduced to zero in a phased manner. The EHS has been used as a mechanism to build greater confidence amongst trading partners to prepare them for even bigger economic engagement. CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST

  15. PTA & FTA Preferential Trade Agreement (PTA): In a PTA, two or more partners agree to reduce tariffs on agreed number of tariff lines. The list of products on which the partners agree to reduce duty is called positive list. India-MERCOSUR PTA is such an example. However, in general PTAs do not cover substantially all trade. Free Trade Agreement (FTA): In FTAs, tariffs on items covering substantial bilateral trade are eliminated between the partner countries; however each maintains individual tariff structure for non-members. India-Sri Lanka FTA is an example. The key difference between an FTA and a PTA is that while in a PTA there is a positive list of products on which duty is to be reduced; in an FTA there is a negative list on which duty is not reduced or eliminated. Thus, compared to a PTA, FTAs are generally more ambitious in coverage of tariff lines (products) on which duty is to be reduced. CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST
