  2. A basis for Opposition unity Managing perceptions: on amending the SC/ST Act Data localisation is no solution SC,ST (prevention of atrocities) ACT 1989 k From the viewpoint of pragmatism, the Centre had no choice but to amend the SC/ST Act S. UBHODEEP


  3. THEDU EDITORIAL DISCUSSION 3rd August THE HINDU


  4. Back drop of the massive Scheduled Caste protests against the Supreme Court verdict that was perceived as diluting the provisions of the 1989 law. The Union Cabinet's decision to amend the provisions of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act appears both reasonable and unavoidable. politics is about pragmatism, about managing perceptions, about defusing difficult situations The proposed amendments are aimed at undoing three new rules laid down by the court: that the bar on anticipatory bail under the Act need not prevent courts from granting advance bail if there is no merit in a complaint UBHODEEP


  5. that there can be an arrest only if the appointing authority (in the case of public servants) or the district superintendent of police (in the case of others) approves such arrest that there should be a preliminary inquiry into complaints. What they do is state that the bar on anticipatory bail will remain "notwithstanding any judgment or order of any court", that there will be no need for a preliminary inquiry before an FIR is registered and that no approval is required before someone is arrested under the Act. S. UBHODEEP


  6. From the very beginning it was clear that the entire issue had less to do with the correctness of the Supreme Court judgment and more to do with the way it was interpreted, and sometimes deliberately misinterpreted The Court was at pains to emphasise that it was only seeking to protect the innocent against arbitrary arrest and that there should be no denial of relief and compensation to SCs and STs, whose rights should be protected While no one can object to procedural safeguards against false accusations, it is possible that the Court's concerns about what it saw as misuse of the Act resulted in the perception that it was introducing norms to prevent quick action on complaints. UBHODEEP


  7. Abasis for Opposition unity Discounting logic: on e-commerce policy Data localisation is no solution The draft e-commerce policy has too many echoes from the licence-raj era S. UBHODEEP

UBHODEEP


  9. Although operationalising its different features would require action from multiple Ministries and regulators. The draft policy proposes the creation of a single national regulator to oversee the entire industry This would also need amendments to existing legislation and rulebooks. Consumer protection norms to guard online shoppers from possible frauds too are overdue As per data available for the first eight months of 2017-18, over 50,000 e commerce grievances were made to the Consumer Affairs Ministry helpline. UBHODEEP


  10. Traditional retailers too have voiced concerns about large e-tail players with deep pockets pricing them out of the market, and have been seeking a level plaving field To give the government a say on who can offer how much discount and for how long, instead of letting consumers exercise informed choices, would be a regressive step for the economy. Among the ideas in the draft policy are a sunset clause Foreign direct investment restrictions on players who can hold their own inventory are sought to be lifted, but there must be a majority Indian partner and all products have to be made in India. similar procurement diktats that are not easy to meet or monitor UBHODEEP
