  2. Page-8: SC seeks govt's response on Member of Parliament's petition alleging Dilution of Judicial Independence. [Article 50] . The Supreme Court sought the government's response on petition that provisions of the Finance Act, 2017 modifying the terms of appointment and functioning in various statutory tribunals, including the National Green Tribunal, amounted to a dilution of judicial independence and a threat to the Constitution Main Concerns: i] Doctrine of Colorable Legislation: MP said, the passing of the Finance Act, 2017,as a Money Bill itself was a "colourable exercise of power and a fraud on the Constitution." The petition specifically challenged Sections 182, 183, 184 and 185 of the Finance Act, 2017 as well as rules framed under Section 184,referred to as the Tribunal,Appellate Tribunal and other Authorities (qualifications, experience and other conditions of service of members) Rules, 2017) [ii] Section 184: Section l 84 empowers the Centre with "uncan alised and unguided power to make rules to provide for qualifications, appointment, term of office, salary allowances, resignation, removal and other terms and condition of service of chairpersons and members of several other tribunals and appellate tribunals. But now, the Centre, through the Finance Act, has gifted to itself the power to control the functioning of the tribunal.All this, when the government is itself a party in most cases before the tribunal.The plea points to how the Act has also tinkered with the NGT rules. Now, these members would be chosen by a government nominee for whom no qualifications have been laid down. . Article 50 in The Constitution Of India: Separation of judiciary from executive The State shall take steps to separate the judiciary from the executive in the public services of the State

  3. Page-8: Motor Vehicles Bill sent to RS panel . A Bill seeking to bring rad- ical changes in the transport sector by amending the nearly 30-year-old Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, would be sent to a Select Committee of the Rajya Sabha. Salient Features: [I] The Bill caps the maximum liability for third party insurance, but does not cap the compensation amount that courts can award. In cases where courts award compensation higher than the maximum liability amount it is unclear who will pay the remaining amount. 2] Under the Act, compensation for hit and run victims comes from a Solatium Fund. 3] The Bill creates a new Motor Vehicle Accident Fund in addition. With a Fund already existing to provide compensation for hit and run accidents, the purpose of the new Accident Fund is unclear [4] State governments will issue licenses to taxi aggregators as per central government guidelines. Currently, state governments determine guidelines for plying of taxis. There could be cases where state taxi guidelines are at variance with the central guidelines on aggregators State List Entries 13. Communications, that is to say, roads, bridges, ferries, and other means of communication not specified in List l; municipal tramways, ropeways, inland waterways and traffic thereon and List Ill with regard to such water-ways; vehicles other than mechanically propelled vehicles. 57.Taxes on vehicles,

  4. Page-II: New Bill to allow States to drop no-detention polic Ministry of Human Resource Development is looking to introduce a Bill to amend the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, to enable States to do away with the no- detention policy, if they wish. . Twenty-five States had recently agreed with the idea of doing away with or tweaking the no-detention policy wherein a child is not detained till Class 8 to give a boost to levels of learning. . Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh,Telangana and Maharashtra did not ask for a rollback of the policy. . The Centre has thus decided to allow States to take the call and to tweak the RTE Act to enable them to do so. Features: [I] The Bill is expected to permit States to introduce exams in Classes 5 and 8. [2] Students who fail in the exams to be held in March-will be given remedial training and offered another chance to pass in May.Those who still fail will be detained in the same class. Why change: There were complaints that the no-detention policy -aimed at retaining students in school and giving a fillip to education- led to learning levels taking a dip. The planned modification in the RTE Act is expected to arrest this trend. Evidence: Dropout rates till Class 8 are just 496, but they rise to above 20% after that This is because of the no-detention policy.
