Editorial

Controlling the machine

Data protection law is the need of hour in india. It is still guided by information technology act , 2000. It is substantially deficient and practically unenforceable. In the scenario, EU;s general data protection regulation can be a guide to all countries that aim to make data protection laws.

A data proaction law need to be guided by privacy as a rule and deviations as exceptions. Exceptions have to be guided by doctrines of necessity and proportionality. It mean

  1. Any information need to be taken only it is necessary.

  2. Any utilisation of information need to happen only to the extent it is required and authorised,

  3. No third party sharing of information shall happen with out authorisation of owner.

 

The need for special attention

India is establishing special courts to deal with various laws. There is no clarity on various issues like.

  1. Special courts need to be newly set up or existing courts itself act as special courts.

  2. Judges most of the times are not recruited, but, existing judges are given extra responsibilities under new statutes.

  3. Legislative intent is also unclear.

 

After the emergency

Emergency is lifted in maldives. Still a lot need to be repaired to restore democracy. The damage to Maldives- India relations appears beyond repair.

  1. Yameen Government moved from India first policy to anti India stance with in these 45 days.

  2. Relations with china got deepened with FTA, offering of atolls and investments flows. China even offered to mediate the crisis.

  2. Counter fires

  3. Fire lines - creation of natural barriers to fire

  4. Using green leafy boughs to retard fire.
