Editorial

Six steps to job creation

  1. Industrial trade policy need to be announced. Anomalies like inverted duty structure need to be corrected. Many sectors like aluminium, steel, electronics are effected due to inverted duty structure.
  2. Special packages  are needed for Labour intensive industries to create jobs.
  3. There should be cluster development to support job creation in MSME’s. cluster development programme of the ministry of MSME’s is poorly funded.
  4. Urban development need to be aligned with manufacturing clusters.
  5. Spilling shall happen close to clusters. There need to be a special focus on women.
  6. Public investment in health, education, police and judiciary can create many government jobs.

 

The legal message

Supreme Court of India is able to correct an anomaly in law related to women by criminalising a sex between a man and his minor wife. But, it did not take in to cognisance of Marital rape - An another exception to rape. It is inherent in the patriarchal notions of our society. This socialisation is getting reinforced through family and societal institutions, popular culture and media.

  1. It is argued that If marital rape is brought under the law, the entire family system will be under great stress.
  2. The Government thinks it will be used as a tool to harass men.
  3. The unjust treatment of marital rape as an exemption stems from three common law notions: marriage constitutes a contract, which includes the woman’s irrevocable consent to sex; a woman is the property of her husband, and rape is a violation of a man’s property rather than a crime against women; and after marriage, a woman’s identity becomes part of her husband’s.

On another perspective, marital rape has to be seen as a component of gender violence.

Benefit of doubt
