men’s and women’s a chance to compete in the Olympic qualifiers an HI official has claimed File image of Indian Hockey team [email protected] While the Indian men’s team’s chances are bright the eves currently placed 13th in the world ranking would have found it tough to finish in the top four The HI official said instead of the Pro League both the men’s and women’s teams have better chances of making the Olympic qualifiers through World League Round 1 and Round 2 which will continue to co-exist with the Pro League from 2019 "Let us make it clear that the Pro League will not give direct berths to top four teams in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics It will only give the top four teams a chance to play in the Olympic qualifiers" "Our women’s team has no chance of qualifying in the top four so we

reported Economictimescom Representational image AP Although the rules prohibit the use of commercial drones the daily reported that their sale is not banned per se Talking about the trend Huzefa Tavawalla who heads international commercial law practice at Nishith Desai Associates says to Firstpost : “As per Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) rules any civilian use of drones in India is illegal but people still use them by taking permission from local authorities which is also according to me not legally acceptable” According to Tavawalla the blanket ban on the use of commercial drones is reactionary and lacks a long-term vision of incorporating drones in achieving goals of socio-economic development Apart from defence and reconnaissance drones have several commercial use They could be used for the quick delivery of donated organs enhancing agricultural efficiency by identifying factors such as moisture content and nutrient soil availability Remote sensing through drones can be of significant use in disaster-prone areas for pinpointing and fighting fires or detection of theft and pilferage of goods meant for public utilisation or in detection of LPG gas leaks which can save several lives Presently people mostly use drones for aerial photography in weddings and for hobby flying Drones are also used to take aerial shots in movie and documentary making These drones typically include toy drones which cost between Rs 2000 and Rs 50000 Drones have been used in India for some time however their use caught public attention when a pizzeria in Mumbai delivered a pizza by a UAV to much fanfare in May 2014 The police realising that there were no regulations on drones banned their use This was followed by the DGCA issuing a public notice on 7 October 2014 imposing a blanket ban on the use of civil drones in the interest of national security While the ban has been imposed due to ‘national security’ the DGCA acknowledged that drones have potential for a large number of civil applications “It’s perfectly fine to regulate advance drones as these can be misused by unscrupulous elements…But a blanket ban is unfair Drones have enormous commercial possibilities” says Pritam Sahu of Edall Systems a Bengaluru based drone maker to Economictimes Talking to Firstpost Sahu says that there should be a guideline from the government in terms of the use of drones for civilian purpose “Currently people are importing drones illegally from abroad and using them What I think is the use of the UAVs can be regulated here” Sahu says Drones are quickly becoming cost effective and more capable and have been widely adopted by the law enforcement agencies in India Currently India accounts for the highest percentage of the world’s UAV imports (for defence purposes) at 225 percent The government of India has recently entered into an arrangement to purchase armed drones from Israel and the US “With India’s innovation flight taking off with the launch of key initiatives such ‘Make in India’ ‘Digital India’ and a strong focus on IT start-ups the government must use this opportunity to make India the global manufacturing leader for drones” Tavawalla said Now either you have a law or you do not; there is no middle ground The decision to try the 16-year-old juvenile accused of killing seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur on the premises of Ryan International School as anadult doesset a precedent The decision taken by the Juvenile Justice Board on Wednesday has to be seen in the light of legal legitimacy It must be separated from the deed and the emotional support that the public has for the victim’s parents For the first reaction of most is to say ‘fine the killer deserves no mercy’ After all if he is tried as a minor he will be out and free in two years; a courtesy that will not be valid now that he is an adult in the eyes of the law A file image of the Class XI student apprehended in connection with the Pradyuman murder case being produced before the Juvenile Justice Board in Gurugram PTI Shorn of the outrage and the chilling need for revenge the law has to explain itself A citizen of democratic India does not fight for this specific accused he or she fights for an explanation on why this decision was taken in this specific case when hundreds of young people commit equally dastardly crimes and do not get ‘promoted’ to adulthood The reason for knowing transcends the popular call and brings into question the necessity for the people to know what the circumstances were that called for this change Legally the Parliament had passed a law in 2015 that stated that heinous crimes committedby 16-year-olds can be seen as acts of an adult The base for this codicil is that if their conduct mimics that of an adult and is not childlike in its criminal intent then the child is not a child Juvenile justice is however predicated on mental health and stability and the ability to ascertain whether the accused was not suffering from a disorder of the mind Whether bi-polar a victim of ADHD schizoid sociopathic or suffering from any of the hundreds of ailments of the brain where do we set a yardstick to assess mitigating circumstances Or does fury and horror at the deed eclipse them all Section 14 of the child act mentions the state of the mind but it is now well known and established that mental aberrations are far more subtle than the visual impairments that usually go into our assessments In this specific case one has to stress that there is no modicum of sympathy for the accused but a rational argument that the rules of this engagement are fluid and allow lawmakers and judges to play God Which crime is less gruesome than the other or carried out with less finesse and who will arbitrate Which grieving family will lose out and which will find cold comfort in the upgrade Instead in a world that has ‘matured’ swiftly is it time to look at 16 as the age of adulthood Technology has certainly impacted on us in a dramatic fashion The travel on the IT highway and its many splendours have made young people au fait with violence at a much younger age It would be a far more effective deterrent than ‘choosing’ individuals in a sort of bizarre form of judicial roulette Here is a quote from the CCL: "The Center for Child and the Law (CCL) has taken a stand against the transfer of children in conflict with law to be tried in the court as adults Having said that neither the gravity of the offence nor the previous involvement of the child in violent or abusive acts should be used as criteria for the preliminary assessment by the JJB or the Children’s Court" This is not because the CCL wishes to encourage juvenile crime or offer special protection but because the selection must be based on fixed criteria including that of adult influences something almost impossible to calculate The rush to change legislation came after the dreadful Nirbhaya case in which one of the six attackers was a minor But in its present form it does not solve the issue It becomes necessary for us as a civilised society to revisit the issue There is nothing sacrosanct about sixteen If children are growing into adults faster then the law must catch up and recognise that factor Ahmedabad: Heavy rains lashed several parts of Saurashtra region including Morbi Rajkot and
