What is needed is a review of the functioning of legislatures in their day to day work in order to optimise their productivity. The blame for the decline in the working of state assemblies should be shared equally between the state governments and the legislative assemblies State governments have the power to convene longer sessions of the assemblybut they choose not to do so Legislative assemblies have the power to change their procedures to ensure debate and greater scrutiny of the governments work But they have not taken any initiative to update or change their rules In 1997the Presiding Officers of Legislative Bodies in Indiaand in 2001a committee of the Presiding Officers of Legislative Bodieshad recommended that there be constitutional provisions to ensure a minimum of 100 sittings for bigger state legislaturesthat is those with at least 100 membersand 60 sittings for smaller state legislaturesthose with less than 100 members So farno progress has been made on these recommendations Some legislative assemblies have rules that specify cooling off periods for discussions in the Housebut these are rarely followed These state elections have seen record-breaking voter turnoutswhich is a clear signal that people have faith in legislative institutions An immediate overhaul of the working of state legislative assemblies is the need of the hour It would result in effective lawsresponsive governanceand go a long way in fulfilling peoples expectations The writer is head of outreach PRS Legislative

day of Ganesh immersion in the city sound vendors expressed fear over being slapped with fines and punished for playing loud music The vendors claim they are finding it difficult supplying sound equipment to the mandals with police keeping a strict watch over the decibel limit Last year the Bombay High Court directed mandals to abide by the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules 2000 and guidelines issued by the Supreme Court in this regard It had been said that sound limit was to be kept below 60 decibels (dB) in residential areas and loudspeakers could be used with due permission in silence zones “Although the state government does not recognise the presence of silence zones in Mumbai as they told the HC all mandals are mandated to follow the decibel levels when using loudspeakers or sound amplifiers for processions In the past few days the noise limits have been exceeded” said anti-noise pollution activist Sumaira Abdulali from Awaaz Foundation an NGO said The rules stated that non-compliance could attract imprisonment for up to five years and a fine which might extend to Rs 1 lakh to the mandals and sound equipment providers As a result many vendors are apprehensive to part with their equipment and are thus losing business they claim “We had observed a Mute Day during Dahi Handi festival to oppose the decibel limit Although we just provide equipment the mandals end up playing those louder than the prescribed sound limit But our sound equipment get confiscated in the process and we are saddled with fines sometimes around a lakh” Manuel Dias from Professional Audio and Lighting Association (PALA) said Three festivals Ganeshotsav Dahi Handi and Navratri bring most of the business to the sound vendors Dias claims that around 80 per cent of the vendors lost out on business during the Dahi Handi festival this time He added that when it comes to “traditional sound equipment” all pleas of violations fall on deaf ears “They believe that having a DJ and loudspeakers raise the volume to above 75 dB in the city But we have seen that the sound of dhols and tashas which are very much is use in residential areas exceed 100 dB” he said According to data collected by Awaaz foundation the highest sound level on Saturday was recorded at 1168 dB “Equipment providers will be fined for Saturday’s noise levels While we have written to the chief minister about this we want each sound vendor to send a personal application to the minister informing him about our cause Through social media we are trying to reach all vendors in the state” Dias said Sanket Sawant an LED and sound equipment contractor for a few Ganesh mandals in the city said: “For a few functionswe have to up the volume to cater to the proceedings We are trying to abide by the rules They must also help us” He added: “For the fifth seventh ninth and tenth days of Ganesh immersion the government must relax the restrictions or at least be a little lenient about the rules without which retaining business would be difficult” Asked about the developments Mumbai Police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner of Police Rashmi Karandikar said: “We take action as per law” For

interpretation it has evolved so that today all Indians irrespective of gender religion or caste are able to enjoy the liberties and protection it guarantees (Source: Reuters) Related News The world is celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta Magna Carta or the Great Charter was signed between King John and the great barons of England in 1215 This charter reduced the arbitrary powers of the king and was intended to protect the feudal rights of the barons That this agreement observed more in its breach than honour would influence different races and cultures across the world would have astonished its authors Clause 39 of this agreement provides that: “No free man shall be taken or imprisoned or dispossessed or outlawed or exiled or in any way ruined nor will we go or send against him except by the lawful judgement of his peers or by the law of the land” In the 17th century Edward Coke James I’s chief justice before he turned against the monarchy argued that Chapter 39 set limits on the king The English carried the principles of Magna Carta to their colonies Although England seemed to have lost interest in the charter it found new life in America and other colonies Coke himself wrote the First Virginia Charter guaranteeing settlers rights as free English subjects The Americans turned to Coke and his defence that “when an act of parliament is against common right or reason or repugnant or impossible to perform the common law will control it and adjudge such an act void” The constitution of the US is based on the rule of law and is the supreme law of the land The Bill of Rights relies heavily on Magna Carta and Clause 39 is the forerunner to the fifth and 14th amendments to the US constitution One of the great British exports to its colonies was the rule of law In India the modern concepts of rule of law and equality before law were introduced by the British This meant that their administration was to be carried out at least in theory in obedience of the law which clearly defined the rights privileges and obligations of the subjects and not according to the caprice or whims of the ruler The framers of the Indian Constitution provided for fundamental rights modelled on the Bill of Rights and Article 21 drew inspiration from the fifth and 14th amendments Article 21 provides that “no person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by law” Thus Article 21 ultimately relies on Magna Carta and due to judicial interpretation it has evolved so that today all Indians irrespective of gender religion or caste are able to enjoy the liberties and protection it guarantees Unfortunately the courts in India from AK Gopalan (1950) to ADM Jabalpur vs Shivkant Shukla (1976) refused to read the term “procedure” established in Article 21 as due process of law provided under the fifth and 14th amendments thus severely curtailing the right of citizens to seek remedy before the courts in case of excesses by the government of the day This position underwent a sea change in Maneka Gandhi vs Union of India (1978) where the Supreme Court held that not only substantive law but also procedural law has to be fair not foolish carefully designed to effectuate and not subvert the substantive right itself Post Maneka Gandhi judicial activism led to a plethora of cases where the SC has interpreted Article 21 in a broad manner bringing relief to citizens as well as non- citizens not only against arbitrary actions but also inaction on part of the government Further the SC held in Shatrughan Chauhan vs Union of India (2014) that the rights of a person extend beyond pronouncement of sentence and inordinate delay in execution amounts to cruelty and hence a violation of rights under Article 21 So it is a ground for commutation of sentence Similarly in Nalsa vs Union of India (2014) the SC recognised the rights of transgenders as the third gender Referring to the Isha Upanishad (1500-1600 BC) the SC in Animal Welfare Board vs A Nagaraja (2014) stated that “the universe along with its creatures belongs to the land No creature is superior to any other Human beings should not be above nature Let no one species encroach over the rights and privileges of other species” Observing the slow but certain shift from an anthropocentric approach in international environmental law the court asserted that every species has an inherent right to live and shall be protected by law Yet again the court did so by expanding the meaning of the term “life” in Article 21 and referred to Magna Carta as the source of the rule of law The barons of England would sit up in their graves if they were informed that the document they signed has travelled so far in space and
