TN Assembly introduces Bill to remove dhoti ban
Chennai, August 6
A Bill seeking to remove a ban on wearing dhoti and other Indian traditional attire imposed by recreational clubs and others was today introduced in the Tamil Nadu Assembly.
Introduced by Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in the backdrop of recent controversy triggered by denial of entry to a dhoti-clad Madras High Court Judge into the TNCA Club here, the Bill provides for the cancellation of licence and punishment of one year imprisonment for any violation of the legislation.
The Tamil Nadu Entry into Public Places (Removal of restriction of dress) Act, 2014, was introduced after the House gave its nod by a voice vote. The Bill states that no recreation club, association, trust, company or society shall make any rule, regulation or bye-law imposing restriction on the entry to any person wearing a ‘veshti’ reflecting Indian culture or any other Indian traditional dress into any public place under its control or management. Any violation of the act would lead to the cancellation of the licence, one-year imprisonment and an additional penalty of Rs 25,000.
Jayalalithaa had earlier assured the House that an act to remove the dhoti ban would be brought in the current session itself after Opposition parties raised the issue of the dhoti-clad judge being denied entry into the club on July 11. — PTI

Cabinet approves amendments to Juvenile Justice Act

Cabinet approves amendments to Juvenile Justice Act
NEW DELHI: The Union cabinet on Wednesday gave its nod to amend the Juvenile Justice Act that will pave the way for 16/18-year-olds to be treated as adults when involved in heinous crimes.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, informed sources said.

The amended bill will now be sent to parliament for approval.

The amendment will empower Juvenile Justice (JJ) Boards to take a call on whether to treat 16/18-year-olds as adults in cases of heinous crimes.

Such convicted juveniles may face a jail term but will not be awarded life sentence or death penalty.

Currently, if an accused person is found to be a juvenile (under 18 years), he is tried by the JJ Board and, if convicted, is sent to a juvenile home for a period of three years.

Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi said in the Lok Sabha last week that the move to amend the act was aimed to act as a deterrent for child offenders committing such crimes and will also protect the rights of the victim.

The sources said the other amendments in the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000, include bringing in more clarity in the role and procedures of statutory structures such as Child Welfare Committees and Juvenile Justice Boards, and strengthening punitive measures for offences committed against children.

New offences such as corporal punishment, ragging and using a child for vending, peddling, carrying, supplying or smuggling any intoxicating liquor, narcotic drug or psychotropic substance and streamlining and strengthening measures for adoption, including providing statutory status to the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) have also been added, they said.

The amended law makes it mandatory for all child care institutions to register or pay a stringent penalty in case of non-compliance.

The government has fast-tracked clearance of the bill - which was sent for inter-ministerial consultations only last week - in the backdrop of perceived lack of business in the ongoing parliament session.

The ministry is keen to introduce the juvenile justice bill in the ongoing parliament session, which ends Aug 14.

Child rights activists have, however, opposed the decision to amend the act.

Child rights body Save the Children said Wednesday it would have liked to see more debate and discussion before the government cleared the amendment to the JJ Act.

"We should not have knee-jerk reaction to one or two incidents involving children and retraction from this well-defined philosophy is not called for. We believe all children under 18 years of age should be dealt with in the JJ system, irrespective of crime and the same is reflected in the current law," it said in a statement.

Sanjay Gupta of NGO Chetna, working in the field of child rights, said: "Before introspecting the failure of recommendations of the JJ Act and reasons of children being pushed into crime, lowering age will not serve purpose. It is a complete eye-wash."-PTIBack
