existing law, including the Indian Penal Code . Furthermore, since such talaq will not be considered legally valid, a Muslim husband will continue to be bound by legal obligations to his wife. It is therefore absurd that a special law is being considered when existing legislation would be sufficient to provide appropriate remedies to Muslim women at the receiving end of triple talaq ,” he said. He also suggested that the AIMPLB, the main party in the legal case, be consulted in the drafting of the Bill before it is passed by Parliament. Cabinet clears Bill to replace MCI The Union Cabinet has cleared the National Medical Commission Bill, which does away with the Medical Council of India (MCI) and replaces it with a regulator that will do away with “heavy handed regulatory control” over medical institutions and will also bring in a national licentiate examination , according to sources privy to the passage of the Bill. Among its key provisions is to ease the processes for colleges to manage undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Earlier, the MCI approval was needed for establishing, renewing, recognising and increasing seats in a UG course.

CURRENT AFFAIRS DECEMBER 2017 35 | Page 9004078746 [email protected] Under the new proposal, permissions need only be sought for establishment and recognition . The Bill proposes a 25-member National Medical Commission (NMC) comprising of 12 ex- officio members , including four presidents of boards from leading medical institutions such as AIIMS and the ICMR; 11 part-time members and, a government-nominated chairman, who will be selected by a committee under the Cabinet Secretary and a member-secretary. Deterrence for non-compliance with maintenance of standards is in terms of monetary penalty ranging up to 10 times the annual tuition fee — rather than the existing system of not renewing permissions in case of serious infractions. The new commission will also have the power to frame guidelines for fees for up to 40% seats in private colleges and deemed universities. The Bill is aimed at bringing reforms in the medical education sector which has been under scrutiny for corruption and unethical practices. Reach consensus, pass Women’s Bill: V-P to parties Vice-President M. Venkaiah Naidu said all parties should reach a consensus to clear the long- pending Women’s Reservation Bill. The Bill seeks to provide 33 per cent reservation to women in Parliament and State legislatures . Mr. Naidu said that when women were given reservation in panchayats, many had claimed that it was the woman’s husband who was actually ruling. “However, a change is being witnessed. Women would soon learn to fight for their rights,” he said, noting there should be change in the law as well in the mindset.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
