  1. DAILY NEWS ANALYSIS from THE HINDU 13th September 2017 By Jatin Verma Educator Unacademy


  2. Page-l:6-month 'cooling off period for granting divorce can be waived: SC Section 13B(2) of the Hindu Marriage Act says that if both parties do not change their pleas for divorce in a time period not less that six months and not later that 18 months, then the court shall pass a decree declaring the marriage to be dissolved The object of the cooling off period was to safeguard against a hurried decision if there was otherwise possibility of differences being reconciled Now, a Hindu married couple may not need to wait six months for a separation order in the case of mutual consent and the marriage can be legally terminated in just a week as the Supreme Court held that the "cooling off" period in not mandatory and can be waived off, provided: [I] all efforts for mediation and conciliation intended to reunite the parties had failed. [l] the parties had already lived separately for at least a year [IlI] parties have genuinely settled differences relating to alimony, custody of child or any other pending issues between them In such situations, the court could take a view that delay in proceedings will only prolong subsequent resettlement. The amendment was inspired by the thought that forcible perpetuation of status of matrimony between unwilling partners did not serve any purpose.


  3. Page-6:Odisha: Progress on UN target on AIDS tardy Experiences in Ganjam, the most HIV-infection prone district in Odisha, have hinted that progress on the '90-90- 90' target set by the United Nations Programme on HIV and AlDS (UNAIDS) has been tardy in the State. UNAIDS has envisioned to achieve the '90-90-90' target by 2020, which would result in controlling HIV infection to sustainable limits by 2030. As per the '90-90-90' target: 90% of all HIV infected persons should get diagnosed and know their HIV positive status. 90% of these diagnosed HIV positive persons are to be provided regular Antiretroviral Therapy (ART), and 90% of people taking ART should show signs of viral suppression, which reduces their scope of infection. . As per a study, at any time of the year over five lakh rural males of reproductive age from Ganjam stay away from their families as migrant labourers outside Odisha. . But the total number of persons tested in Ganjam in a year is around 90,000

  6. Page-10: Corrupt MPs, MLAs return to power: Supreme Court. GSM-2: Probity in Public Life: Monetisation of Politics MLAs and MPs who face investigation for possessing wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income, always tend to bounce back to power.This is a phenomenon seen in the past 25 to 30 years, the Supreme Court observed The hearing, on a petition filed by Lok Prahari seeking a mechanism to investigate the source of income of politicians, saw the Centre give details of a probe into the assets of 26 Lok Sabha members, two Rajya Sabha members and 215 MLAs in a sealed cover. A Bench of S.C.asked if this phenomenon of returning to power, coupled with the mercurial rise in the assets of politicians just within a span of five years between two successive elections, was a product of ineffective investigation or of some "immunity" provided to them If an MLA's or MP's assets have seen a 10 times rise in 2019 from what he revealed in 2014 should you not conduct an inquiry into the very propriety of a person holding public office enjoying such phenomenal rise in his assets.


  7. Crux of what S.C.said: 1.The moment a candidate has shown 1,000% increase in his income in the past five years, please have a mechanism to conduct an enquiry. 2. Income and Asset are two different things: Income under each head should be probed: It is not enough that a legislator discloses a legitimate source of income. It is 3.'Notify Fast-track courts': The Bench observed the government should notify special fast- Reasons: I.It is unrealistic and simplistic to expect perfection in politics in an ethically imperfect 2. India was fortunate that high standards of ethical conduct were an integral part of the important to inquire that how did the person get in that position to earn that income. track criminal courts to try MPs and MLAs in corruption cases. Social Glorification of Corruption or Money. environment freedom struggle. Unfortunately, ethical capital started getting eroded after the transfer of power.


  8. National News Page-1l:Stung India slams 'inaccurate' UN reports . Angered by criticism from the UN's Human Rights Council on the issue of Kashmir, cow vigilante violence and Rohingya refugees, India accused the High Commissioner of passing "tendentious judgements made on the basis of selective and even inaccurate reports. India is proud of its independent judiciary, freedom of press, vibrant civil society and respect for rule of law and human rights. A more informed view would have not only recognised this but also noted, for example, that the Prime Minister himself publicly condemned violence in the name of cow protection. Incidents extrapolated': Exceptions cannot be examples. The Govt. said UNHRC's reference to the killing of journalist Gauri Lankesh and other references to people displaced in the Sardar Sarovar-Narmada Bachao Andolan, and "mob attacks against people under the pretext of protecting the lives of cows" and other instances of "rising intolerance" in India, were"individual incidents extrapolated to suggest a broader societal situation. While giving his update to the Council's reports on 40 countries, Mr. Hussein had "deplored" the government's recent decision to deport approximately 40,000 Myanmarese Rohingya refugees


  9. India cannot carry out collective expulsions, or return people to a place where they risk torture or other serious violations," Mr. Hussein had said, referring to the principle of non- refoulement, after calling the Aung San Suu Kyi government's policies against the refugees as a "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing." Like many other nations, India is concerned about illegal migrants, in particular, with the possibility that they could pose security challenges. Enforcing the laws should not be mistaken for lack of compassion. On the issue of human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir that the UN Human Rights Chief had referred to in the written reports as well, India said the assessments overlooked "the central role of terrorism" there.


  10. Page-1l: Chakmas to be made citizens Govt. is all set to give citizenship to over one lakh Chakma-Hajongs, Buddhists and Hindus who fled to India in the 1960s to escape religious persecution in the Chittagong Hill area of Bangladesh (undivided Pakistan then). . Home Minister will chair a meeting where a final decision to grant citizenship to the Chakma- Hajongs will be taken. They would be granted citizenship but will not have any land ownership rights in Arunachal Pradesh, a predominantly tribal State. They would be free to buy land anywhere else in India but not in Arunachal Pradesh.They could continue to live in the transit camps where they have been housed since 1964-65. The Arunachalis have opposed giving any rights to Chakma-Hajongs. Basic Text: Ch-Citizenship


  11. Any procedure on deportation of Rohingya will be an extrapolation of the existing policy on Bangladesh. First step is to identify them as most of them claim they are Indians. Identifying an undocumented citizen was a long process: The local police will have to enquire if the person is not an Indian citizen. Then he or she will be declared a foreigner.A foreigner not having a document is an illegal immigrant.A communication will be sent to the Myanmar government to verify their address Deporting them will be the last step and the process has not been finalised yet. UPSC Prelims Previous year Question: Pre-2005 Consider the following statements: I.Articles 37l A to 371 I were inserted in the Constitution of India to meet regional demands of Nagaland, Assam, Manipur,Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh and Goa. 2.

GSM-2: Polity & Governance: Ministries & Departments- Ways to establish synergies between Ministries & Departments: Mr. Nitin Gadkari, who also holds road transport and shipping portfolios [Rakesh Mohan Committee on Transport Development Policy had recommended merging of ministries- MoRTH & Ministry of Shipping.

The Bangladeshi parliament passed a resolution on Monday urging the international community to mount pressure on Myanmar to resolve the crisis. Bangladesh is seeking international support for a plan to relocate Rohingya to a remote Bay of Bengal island that critics say is flood-prone and unliveable.


  15. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), which cut its repo rate by 0.25 percentage points last month, retained its neutral policy stance, citing uncertainty on the future trajectory of inflation because of several uncertainties: If states choose to implement salary and allowance increases similar to the centre in the current financial year, headline inflation could rise by an additional estimated 100 basis points above the baseline over 18-24 months. Also, indicators suggest that price pressures are building up in vegetables and animal proteins in the near months. . The second volume of the Economic Survey 2016-17 took a contrarian view and maintained that India is undergoing a structural shift toward low inflation, mostly due to changing dynamics in the oil market, which has capped upside risks.

Pitching for use of big data analytics for inclusive growth, IT Minister said any unauthorised use of data would be dealt with an "iron-hand to ensure that nothing comes in the way of making data analytics a national movement.

Business: BSNL towers hived off as 'separate company' The Union Cabinet approved hiving off the mobile tower assets of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) into a separate company, fully owned by BSNL. It has authorised BSNL to monetise its telecom tower infrastructure with the formation of a separate subsidiary. BSNL owns 66,000 telecom towers in the country, out of the total 4.4 lakh towers.The government is looking at external tenancies and garnering revenues for the new,"independent dedicated" tower company of BSNL. . . The telecom tower industry has emerged as an independent business to harness the potential for sharing of infrastructure. The business model arose from the need to achieve economies of scale and to reduce capital investment costs for providing mobile services. . The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) policy allows sharing of passive infrastructure the tower structure, which has facilitated the growth of the Diesel Generator sets,battery units,power interface unit and air-conditioning telecom infrastructure industry. . A tower infrastructure company essentially owns the passive infrastructure assets and leases it to telecom service providers enabling them to minimise duplication of investments and economise on costs of Operation and Maintenance (O&M), thereby, improving profitability. Besides the captive model in BSNL and MTNL, where the service provider owns its passive infrastructure also, there are three different business models within the telecom tower industry.These are companies created by hiving off the tower assets portfolios of service providers into subsidiaries;companies established as independent joint venture entities by service providers jointly and companies promoted by specific service providers but established as independent entities with the promoter being the anchor tenant for the tower company. .
