By Masoom Reza | May 5, 2023
The Draft Population Bill of Uttar Pradesh: A Critique from Disability Lens

The article examines the proposed The Uttar Pradesh Population (Control, Stabilization, and Welfare) Bill, 2021, through the lens of disability rights and argues that the draft law was prepared with complete insensitivity towards disabled people. 

The Bill aims to control the population by limiting government incentives and benefits to those who have two children and has received criticism for its regressive approach. The article suggests that the law should be reassessed and take into account the principles of UNCRPD, RPwD Act, and constitutional jurisprudence pertaining to disability law. The government should also consider the objections of relevant stakeholders and avoid promoting exclusionary practices and stereotypes.

The Trend of Casual and Cryptic Bail Orders: Vice of Arbitrariness

By Arushita Singh | March 25, 2023
bail order

It has been observed that in recent years, the High courts of India have been approving or refusing bail orders in a cryptic and arbitrary manner in an increasing number of cases.

The judges of the High Courts have developed a propensity to particularly make generic statements about how “the facts and the circumstances have been considered” in such rulings which allowed the grant or rejection of the bail.
