News The government issued four sets of rules related to the Information Technology Act in April These rules were tabled in Parliament a few days ago and will be placed on the table for 30 days Rulesin generalform part of a legislation and usually deal with details that may need quick changes in response to changing circumstances Parliament retains oversight over rules and can modify them Three sets of the IT rules that have been tabled have important implications related to freedom of expression and privacy The Information Technology Act has a provision for safeguarding sensitive personal data or information (SPDI) maintained by companies These companies are required to adhere to reasonable security practices and procedures (RSPP)and are liable to compensate for any loss due to negligence in maintaining such procedures The act further states that RSPP will be determined by an agreement between the individual whose data is being maintained and the company holding the data In the absence of such an agreementthe company will comply with such RSPP as notified in rules The act also authorises the Central government to define what SPDI is The first set of rules defines SPDI as passwordsfinancial informationphysical and mental conditionssexual orientationmedical records and biometric information It also lays down security practices and procedures Interestinglythe rules require the data holder to share sensitive information with government agencies on a written request for the purpose of investigationprevention and prosecution of offences This requirement raises two issues Firstthe RSPP will become relevant only in the absence of an agreement between the data holder and the data owner Thereforethe facility of government agencies to obtain such information can be overruled by a private agreement Secondthe safeguards for accessing personal data are different from those in other laws The IT rules just require a written request and an undertaking that the data will not be shared further In contrastthe Criminal Procedure Code requires a magistrate to sign a search warrant Interception of phone calls and Internet communication requires sanction from the Union or state home secretary The second and third sets of rules deal with the liability of intermediaries The act specifies that an intermediary will not be liable for any third-party informationdata or communication link made available by it For examplean email service or an Internet service provider is not liable for data transmitted by itand a web host for data stored by it If the intermediary receives actual knowledge of any such information being used for an unlawful actit is required to block access or remove the information The second set of rules now wants intermediaries to ensure that their terms of use require prohibition on certain content such as those that are grossly harmfulblasphemousdefamatoryobscenehatefuldisparagingrelating or encouraging money laundering or gamblingetc There are three ways in which these rules affect the freedom of speech Firstsome of these items such as blasphemous and grossly harmful are ambiguous and undefined Secondthese rules prohibit the posting of certain content on the Internet while it may be lawful in other media For examplea blasphemous article may be permitted in printbut the rules might prohibit the same article from being reproduced in its Internet edition Thirdthe rules may infringe the right to speech guaranteed under Article 19(1) of the Constitution Several of the criteria that are prohibited in the rules do not fall under Article 19(2)which provides the list of circumstances in which the right may be curtailed The third set of rules requires cyber cafés to maintain a log of users with photos and the list of websites visited As some of this data is personal in naturethis requirement may have negative implications for the privacy and personal security of users The rules also prescribe standards for seating layout in a cyber cafe and require a board announcing that users should not visit pornographic sites Interestinglythe act defines a cyber cafe as a place where Internet access is offered to the public in the ordinary course of business This may imply that airport lobbies and coffee shops that offer Wi-Fi access may have to comply with the seating conditionsor may have to discontinue such services These rules may be examined by the committee on subordinate legislation An MP can also demand a discussion and move amendments till the end of the budget session 2012 Given the important issues that are raised in these rulesit would be interesting to see whether Parliament exercises its oversight function in examining and deliberating on them It is noteworthy that no rule has so far been amended

15 years of missed opportunities make it hard to drum up confidence that change is imminent But there is perhaps one modest proposal that might mitigate some of the pathologies associated with the current system of admissions The current system is based on scoring high on exams to determine college places But as cut-offs increase as more and more students bunch around particular marks so does the neurosis of the system as a whole since every marginal mark counts The difference between 98 and 985 per cent can make a huge difference to your prospects So there is a single-minded pursuit of the marginal mark almost at the cost of a real education This administrative principle has given rise to some myths The first is the myth of meritocracy: the idea that the person who got 985 per cent deserves in some deep sense to get a place above the kid who got 98 per cent The students who get in have a sense of entitlement The second myth is that having only high scorers (leave aside the issue of reservation for a moment) makes for better colleges Both of these are myths Most educators have the sense that within some bandwidths of achievement any random distribution of selected students would produce similar results This is true of universities like Harvard; it could probably just randomly choose from a large pool of applicants above a certain threshold and still get similar results Similarly a Delhi University college that cuts off admission at 96 per cent would probably be no worse off if it just randomly chose students above a certain percentage maybe 85 or 90 per cent Universities perpetuate the myth that something objectively distinguishes a selected group of students from those that did not get in but who were also above a certain threshold This may be true at a scale approaching genius but it is not true for a vast majority of students even at the top end of the distribution The difference between the 500 who get into a particular college and the next 5000 is negligible It is at most as someone once put it an aptitude for showing aptitude perhaps not even that Anyone who has served on admission committees knows that If this is the case why not go for a saner and fairer admission process which is a form of weighted lottery Just as a crude example a college where cut-offs might be 97 per cent could simply say: we will put anyone above 90 per cent into a lottery The exact number is not important and would of course have to be arrived at with care There will have to be consideration of what the thresholds are We might also want to think of weighted systems: your probability becomes greater at different thresholds These issues can be debated But you get the general idea What are the advantages of this system First it may cut down the neurosis induced by the quest for the marginal mark a quest whose psychological and pedagogical consequences are debilitating Being good enough is good enough and that philosophy may allow for more creativity and diverse interests to flourish Second this is a more honest system It says that we know how to make broad distinctions between students in different bands of achievement But it is fooling both ourselves and the students to think that there are some objective criteria by which we have distinguished a 98 from a 985 per cent Yet we have legitimised an entire system on this pretence Third it will completely bust this myth of meritocracy in which we cloak happenstance It is probably a healthier attitude for those who get in to recognise that there were hundreds if not thousands of kids who could easily have taken their place without a drop in quality The sense of entitlement that a pure meritocracy induces is hugely deleterious Fourth you may actually end up with a more interesting mix of students If designed well there should be few pedagogical objections to the lotteries within bandwidths approach The big resistance will come from those who have a stake in current institutional identities Institutional reputations are bound to these circles of illusion: “X college is the best because its cut-off is 98 per cent and the cut-off is 98 per cent because it is the best” Our investment in these illusory fine gradations does not come from pedagogic goals It comes from the need to create and maintain social distinctions between colleges and among students This scheme would not do away with such gradations entirely Colleges will be able to sustain minimal cut-offs for the threshold based on their quality In fact it might be healthier for truly distinguishing good colleges from less good ones This is because the entire burden of quality signals will not be borne by the admission cut-offs only To show they are genuinely good colleges will have to do more than parade their cut-offs This is not a one size fits all recommendation There may be some courses where the finest distinctions matter to pedagogical outcomes The Dutch apparently have such a system for admission to medical colleges Different institutions should try different methods We also need to have a larger debate on what we are testing for We need a strategy for creating or improving vast numbers of good institutions But as an approach to university admissions this may not be unreasonable Lotteries often militate against our sense of achievement and entitlement But as the Greeks knew lotteries can also be more honest and fair This system has the advantage that if thresholds for eligibility are defined intelligently this method does not compromise on excellence But it does get rid of the neurosis that myths of pure meritocracy and illusory distinctions can produce The writer is president?
