microns the Delhi government said the “departments concerned would begin charting a plan” for the same while specifying that enforcement lay with the municipal corporations Traders however have raised issues ranging from “alternatives to plastic” to implementation of the order A senior government official said “The problem in the past has been of enforcement That will have to carried out by the municipal corporations But we will be charting out the plan to ensure that the tribunal’s orders are followed” Meanwhile senior officials of the environment department maintained that they were yet to see the order An official said “Once we have studied the order we will have a clearer picture on what needs to be done” Traders meanwhile said the move will hit owners of kirana stores Radhe Shyam Gupta President Vikas Marg Traders’ Association said “It’s an important order but where is the alternative to plastic bags The alternative has to be cheap and easily available for everyone Shopkeepers who are well-off will manage but the real sufferer will be the kirana store owners because they can only afford polythene” Vinod Sharma a trader at Chandni Chowk said “This order is going to be tough to implement — both for the government and the traders As merchants of cloth we need to wrap our products in something that is dust- and waterproof Paper doesn’t help in this case and the government hasn’t introduced a better alternative” Others raised issues of implementation Gian Prakash Gupta President Paper Merchants’ Association Chawri Bazaar said “Such orders have been passed several times

cloud — just last month exports fell 83 per cent compared to a year ago — more devaluations may be expected Related News Another major element of uncertainty in addition to the US Fed’s imminent interest rate hike has been added to the mix for India The Chinese central bank on Tuesday effectively devalued the renminbi by nearly 2 per cent versus the dollar by delinking it from the greenback and aligning it more with market forces There could be several motivations behind this move: the belief that currency controls need to be liberalised especially since the IMF last week declined to include the renminbi in the basket of currencies it uses for special drawing rights; pre-emptive delinking from the dollar before the Fed’s upcoming interest rate hike; and/ or a beggar-thy-neighbour strategy to improve exports Even though the central bank underscored that the devaluation was a one-time fix the prospect of further devaluations looms large The overwhelming impression is that with China’s growth sputtering and the prospect of deflation looming policymakers may be rethinking the shift away from manufacturing and exports and towards domestic consumption and services Given that the Chinese export story has been under a cloud — just last month exports fell 83 per cent compared to a year ago — more devaluations may be expected But for India whose exports have been declining for seven straight months this coupled with the huge depreciations in the yen lira real and euro makes the external environment even more hostile A more competitive renminbi would not just mean that Indian exports to other countries including China could go down but that Chinese imports into India could be set to increase This is especially true for the steel tyre chemical electronic goods and petrochemical markets Further manufacturing units in global supply chains that were earlier set to move out of China may now stay put But rather than get involved in a currency-war game India must set its own house in order and look at domestic drivers of growth As RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan pointed out in December 2014 making for India is an imperative since the old export-led growth model may not work in today’s world Of the domestic drivers of growth while private consumption looks optimistic private investment demand is still in the doldrums But it is really public investment taking advantage of reduced oil and commodity prices that could drive the recovery Additionally given the lack of the option to yoke the Indian economy to a booming global one internal market liberalisation — the GST and APMC reforms for instance — is a sine qua non Lastly the recent good news on the FDI front — Foxconn and Posco plan to invest $8 billion in Maharashtra — shows that India continues to be

2012 12:49 am Related News Presidential election In the present Presidential electionuse of intemperate language at times and canvassing by the contesting candidates are reminiscent of college and trade union elections Controversy has arisen about conscience vote advocated by some persons In this contextit must be remembered that election of the President is a political election by an electoral college comprising 4896 electorsviz 233 and 543 members of the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha respectively and 4120 members of State assemblies A political party would naturally expect its members to vote for its Presidential nominee according to the partys directive Example cited of the 1969 Presidential election when Sanjeeva Reddy and V V Giri were the rival contestants is misplaced because at that time there was no anti-defection law which is in operation under the Tenth Schedule of the ConstitutionClause 2(b) provides for disqualification of a member if he or she votes or abstains to vote contrary to partys directionin other words the party whipunless the member has obtained prior permission from his party Tenth Schedule was challenged in the Supreme Court inter alia on the ground that penalty of disqualification under clause 2(b) violated freedom of conscience of the member The Supreme Courthoweverupheld the constitutionality of the Tenth Schedule In that view of the matter conscience vote apparently has hardly any constitutional significance Ideallyit would be desirable that a party should permit its members to vote according to their conscience Unfortunatelyideals are misfits in political elections and one has to live with the current anti-defection law Disturbing developments in Pakistan Harmonious relations between three important wings of the State viz the Parliamentthe executive and the judiciary are imperative for political stability Events in Pakistan have come to a head because of refusal of the Pakistans former Prime Minister Gilani to comply with the Supreme Courts order to write to the Swiss authorities asking them to reopen graft cases against President Asif Ali Zardari The Supreme Court did not accept Gilanis contention that compliance with the Courts order would breach the immunity enjoyed by the President under the Constitution It held him guilty of contempt which subsequently led to his disqualification The present Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf has been given time up to July 25 by the Supreme Court to comply with its order with a warning that in event of non-compliance the Court may initiate appropriate action against him In order to protect Prime Minister Ashraf from conviction for contempt of courtPakistan has enacted a new law which confers blanket immunity from contempt of court proceedings to top government functionaries including the President and the Prime Minister This law prima facie strikes at the authority and independence of the Court Contempt power is inherent in courts of record like the High Courts and the Supreme Court and is essential to ensure effective dispensation of justice and functioning of the courts by implementation of its orders upon pain of contempt If the Courts orders are flouted with impunitythe rule of law is subverted and the functioning of an independent judiciary is undermined The law is bound to be challenged resulting in acrimonious litigation Regrettably the Parliament and the executive are on a collision course with the judiciary In this contextI am reminded of the dictum of Ernst Freund that to know what you may do and what you may not doand how far you
