Service | Published: July 24 2014 12:05 am Related News One of Parliament’s prime functions is to exercise oversight over the finances of the government Structural factors however will prevent such oversight from occurring this year The Union budget for 2014-15 will be taken into consideration for passing on July 24 The process for the passing of the first budget of a newly elected government in July is by compulsion an exception to the presentation and passage of the budget in March every year The budget session of Parliament is usually much longer and standing committees have the opportunity to examine budgetary demands in detail This year however the standing committees have not yet been constituted so the budget will not receive their scrutiny It was the same in 2009 when the new Parliament’s standing committees were constituted only at the end of August This indicates an urgent need for reform Parliament also exercises oversight over the Union budget by discussing the demands for grants of individual ministries on the floor of the Lok Sabha A 2010 paper by PRS Legislative Research however states that only about 10 per cent of the demands (between 2004-05 and 2009-10) were actually raised during the general discussion on the floor of the House The rest are “guillotined” that is passed without discussion Disturbingly in 2013 all the demands for grants were guillotined This year too the demands of just four ministries will be discussed — a mere 6 per cent of the total demands for grants This effectively means that most of the Union budget may be passed without parliamentary oversight This scant oversight is often justified by pointing to the time constraints built into the financial calendar The following reforms will reduce these constraints First as the budget passed by the 15th Lok Sabha expires on July 31 the vote-on-account can be extended to allow parliamentarians more time to examine the demands for grants Second Parliament should allot more time to the discussion of demands for grants At the very least the demands of ministries that take up a major chunk of the Union budget should be discussed in both Houses Finally there has to be meaningful reform to ensure that the standing committees of Parliament are constituted in advance of the budget It is time the “reform” narrative in India included the institution for effectuating all

MCX-SX broke the price barrier in the stock exchange business by announcing a significantly lower membership cost and transaction fee This has forced NSE to at least take stock to begin with Market is rife with speculation that NSE too may bring its cost structure down sooner than later A source close to the development told The Indian Express there may be some changes in NSEs membership fee too MCX-SXs pricing move just reinforces the benefits of competitionbe it the consumer goods marketwhere players indulge in a slugfest over wafer-thin marginsor the more complex exchange business When NSE entered the exchange business in 1994it sharply cut membership cost to Rs 15 crore from Rs 4 crore (charged by BSE then) as its offering MCX-SX has taken it a couple of steps ahead In the introductory phaseit has offered membership for as little as Rs 25 lakh till October 182012 It says the price will double to Rs 50 lakh after that But even Rs 50 lakh is significantly lower to what NSE charges today On the net worth front tooNSE demands Rs 1 crore networth to be maintained by corporate members at all times as against Rs 30 lakh required by BSE and MCX-SX This is the minimum prescribed by the market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India Not just thatMCX-SX is offering a 40-50 per cent lower transaction fee (depending on the category and traded value) of NSEs fees For examplein the cash segment in equitiesNSE charges a transaction fee of Rs 3 per lakh for a monthly traded value in excess of Rs 5000 while MCX-SX is charging Rs 15 per lakh for the same category

monthly traded value of over Rs 15000 crore Market watches say brokers with low volumes along with jobbers and arbitrageurs will get attracted to the low membership fee and low transaction charge Institutional and retail brokers will join only after volumes pick up on MCX-SX If NSE and BSE are proactive in reactingthen it may create some drag for MCX-SX to catch up But industry insiders feel it may not take long for the group to build volumes given its experience in running exchanges and incentivising brokers It took almost six years for NSE to overtake BSE (when badla was banned)but given the acceptance of technology and the business knowhow of the groupMCX-SX may not take so long if it plays the cards right For nowNSE continues to be a dominant market player In AugustNSE had a

Kalra | Published: March 16 2017 12:15 am Artist Paramjit Singh at the exhibition in Delhi Top News Each canvas is a melange of thick brushstrokes converging to form diverse pictures — from entwined leaves to clear skies and floating green islands They do not belong to a particular location but are a figment of Paramjit Singh’s imagination an outcome of his numerous travels and his romance with the variegated landscapes The earth always fascinated the artist for as long as he can remember As a young boy growing up in Amritsar in the ’40s he recalls visualising territories that Guru Nanak travelled to when his father narrated tales of the saint’s wanderings “My father was a great storyteller and I remember him telling stories from the life of Guru Nanak giving details of the rivers mountains and the sky and in my head I used to recreate each detail” says Singh 82 Over the years he has reimagined several pictorial memoirs His ongoing exhibition in Delhi is also an outcome of these reflections If the mass of pink on pristine blue appears to be lotus fields pictured in bright light in another oil on board green forests inhabit vast open fields “I use light for body and colour for perspective Colour comes from nature and the strokes of colour are like a language The repetition of strokes is like repeating words” says the artist adding “I use nature and invent my landscape What matters is the concept of landscape I am a painter of nature not an illustrator of nature I paint the moods and its older elements like the air and texture” His depictions though were not always devoid of figures In his early years the colourist painted figurative works and was known to be a fine portrait painter “There was a lot of still life with landscape in the backdrop” recalls Singh of his student days at the Delhi Polytechnic It is here that he found mentors in teachers such as Sailoz Mukherjee and influenced by the Impressionists Singh attempted to develop his own language with colour “The academic environment was such that each of us was encouraged to think and choose our own path With me I always enjoyed the mysteries and marvels of nature” says Singh So the young lad from Amritsar who used to bathe under tubewells and cycle long distances from his home to school everyday found serenity in the uncrowded Delhi of the ’50s too “Even in Delhi we would cycle on the ridge or walk through the wild fields and visit old monuments” he says Gradually therefore elements of nature began to come to the forefront in his depictions and by the ’60s nature became dominant In 1958 he along with Suraj Ghai Eric Bowen and his wife Arpita Singh established the group The Unknown formed to encourage emerging Indian artists Together they organised their first exhibition at AIFACS followed by handful more in the subsequent years “I do not remember selling much but we were written about a lot which helped get attention” says the artist whose work Stone on the Wall won a national award in 1970 while three of his paintings were accepted for the Lalit Kala Akademi triennial in 1971 A self-sponsored trip to Europe including a couple months of training in printmaking at the Atelier Nord in Norway in 1973 gave him better exposure to Western art and he also exhibited his work across the continent “I managed to sell some” he recalls Back in India though with no commerce in art he supported his practice by joining as faculty member at the Fine Arts college at Jamia Millia University in Delhi where he taught from 1963 to 1992 Soon he and also his work started travelling the world If in 1988 he was invited by the Indian Council of Cultural Relations to curate a show from India at an international art festival in Lahore in 1989 he exhibited at Gallery Killian in Hannover Also the figurative elements receded in the background bringing more abstract and mystical landscapes to the forefront — both in colour and charcoal playing with form texture and light which are so integral to his work The exhibition is on at Vadehra Art Gallery D-40 Defence Colony Delhi till April 4 For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App

respect due process won’t clean up politics Last year the Supreme Court had sought the Law Commission’s view on electoral reforms that could stanch criminality in politics In response the commission has suggested that candidates against whom charges have been framed by a court at least one year prior to the date of scrutiny of nomination papers should be disqualified from contesting polls The candidate in question must also have been charged for an offence with a maximum punishment of five or more years of imprisonment To justify its recommendation the commission has referred to the poor rate of criminal convictions and trial delays apart from the “lack of deterrence” for political parties when it comes to fielding criminals But if lower courts have seen shoddy and lengthy criminal trials of politicians it is for the judiciary to clean up its stables The CrPC suggests the framing of charges is a “statement that every legal condition required by law to constitute the offence charged was fulfilled in the particular case” In the Supreme Court’s words this would indicate there is “sufficient ground” to proceed against the accused Yet even as it laments the poor rate of convictions in lower courts the Law Commission is evidently willing to repose enormous trust in these very institutions to satisfy the rigorous standards laid out in the CrPC In practice whether or not charges are framed by a court depends on the prosecution’s zeal in pursuing a criminal case Preliminary hearings at this stage do not constitute a platform for the accused to establish her case simply because there is no thorough evaluation of evidence And the “cut-off” period of one year is not an adequate safeguard simply because well before a formal announcement or the filing of nomination papers many constituencies may be aware who the likely candidates are This is especially so in the case of high-profile politicians The Law Commission’s report focuses rightly on the need for expedited criminal trials of politicians Guilt can only be ascertained after a fair trial and once appeals to higher courts have been exhausted Quickfixes and blunt solutions — such as disqualification after the mere framing of charges — can be prone to misuse and will end up undermining the rule of law For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy:
