sir u haven't uploaded any videos of three phase converters?
NHRC~A TOOTHLESS BODY >> its recommendations are not binding >> NHRC cannot investigate a case if complaint was made more than one year after the incident.>>The act does not extend to the state of Jammu & Kashmir. Hence NHRC cannot investigate incidents of human rights violation there. >> NHRC powers with respect to investigating cases of human rights violation by armed forces are limited. >> Protection of human rights act 1993 does not categorically empower NHRC to investigate matters of human rights violation by private parties. >> NHRC do not have any kind of contempt powers thus it cannot penalize authorities who do not implement its recommendations in a time bound manner.

Hi sharshash khand, please watch Roman sir's lesson.
Oridance power given to the President by the constitution when a matter requires urgent legislation when the parliament is not in the session. But most of times the incumbent government passes the ordinance when it faces difficult to pass the bill in parliament, it pass the ordinance just even after the week of completion of it's session. The constitution has given the legislation power only to the parliament, President ordinance is a process during legislation after the once the parliament session starts. Ordinance making power of the President s misusing by bypassing the legislative actions to be taken by the people elected parliament. This method of passing the law now and then is unconstitutional, ordinance can only be promulgated only the matter is of urgent importace, if not the divers people's opinions can't be voiced. Another problem is reproduction of the ordinances that is passing the ordinances repeatedly. In the Dr. Washes case SC stated that ordinance can be repromulgated only in the extraordinary cases.
