Casting Votes Remotely: NRI - Edukemy Current Affairs


In news

  • The Union government recently informed the Supreme Court (SC) that it was considering how to make it easier for non-resident Indians (NRI), especially migrant workers, to cast vote remotely.
  • The Plea was submitted in 2013 "at a point when nothing was being done to enable such persons to cast their votes,".

About NRI

  • NRI is a person residing outside India for a combined total of at least 183 days in a financial year (either a citizen of India or a person of Indian origin)
  • They have the right to vote; are required to pay and file the income tax return on their Indian income like resident Indians.
  • The rates of income tax are different for persons who are “resident in India” and for NRIs.

SC recommended Committee

  • After a PIL, a committee was constituted to look into the matter “with regard to ways and means to facilitate voting for the NRIs and migrant workers”.
  • A report was submitted to the court.
  • The central government had accepted the recommendations made by the Election Commission and thereafter, decided to introduce the Representation of Peoples Amendment Bill in 2018 in the Lok Sabha to amend a provision of section 60 of the Act (1951).

 

Remote voting is a way to cast a vote that can be done in person somewhere other than the designated polling site or at a different time, or votes may be sent by post or cast by an appointed proxy.

·       The 'remote voting option' has been proposed to be used in the next 2024 Lok Sabha elections by the Chief Election Commissioner.

·       The project is being developed by the IIT-Madras using blockchain technology.

 

Significance

·       On similar lines to Article 326

·       Will Strengthen Democracy

·       Universalizing of Democratic Rights

 

Concerns

·       May hamper free & fair elections

·       May violate the secrecy of the Ballot

·       Implementation & administrative challenges

Carbon Credit Market - Edukemy Current Affairs


In News:

  • India’s evolving Carbon market is under consideration for uniform emissions trading and Net Zero target

 About the News:

  • India is on the path to establishing a carbon market at the national level beginning with the voluntary carbon market and then moving on to a compliance-based market.
  • In this regard, Minister for Power, New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) has recently announced steps to establish a carbon credit market in India.
  • The step aims to help the country meet its nationally determined contributions (NDC) and play a key role in India’s drive towards decarbonisation.
  • NDCs are submitted by countries under the Paris Agreement of the UNFCCC and it represents pledges on climate action that seeks to limit global warming to meet the 1.5 °C temperature goal.
  • Once the NDC targets of the country are achieved, the remaining credits can be sold in bulk to other countries that will benefit from them.
  • Previously, India submitted its updated NDCs in 2022 stressing that it is a step ahead in achieving the long-term goal of Net Zero in 2070.
  • Under the updated NDCs, India is committed to reducing the emissions intensity of its gross domestic products by 45 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030 and achieving 50 per cent of its cumulative electric power installed capacity from non-fossil fuel sources of energy by 2030.

Carbon market in India:

  • About: The clean development mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol provides a primary carbon market for the players in India while the secondary carbon market is covered by the perform-achieve-trade scheme (which falls under the energy efficiency category) and the renewable energy certificate.
  • Potential sector: The global carbon credits market rose by 164 per cent in 2021 and is expected to cross $100 billion by 2030.
  • Mechanism: One carbon credit permit allows one tonne of carbon dioxide or any other greenhouse gas to be emitted.
  • Expanding supply chain: The country is working on expanding its supply chain in the solar manufacturing division to tackle volatility in energy markets. For example, the energy crisis due to the Russia-Ukraine war.
  • Diversification: The government has introduced a production-linked incentive scheme for the manufacturing of polysilicon cells into modules in a step towards diversification of the supply chain.

Importance of Carbon market:

  • About: The carbon credits market favoured by appropriate regulations and policy will help in the creation of suitable opportunities for the next decade.
  • Wider impact: Unified carbon market will be beneficial since the location of the carbon projects is scattered, so mitigation activity happens over a wider area.
  • Effective carbon credits: Enabling the carbon market at the domestic level will help organisations in the country trade in their carbon credits effectively and in turn, will speed up the energy transition objectives of the country for climate change mitigation.
  • New avenues: Carbon markets will open up fresh options for organisations that are engaged in developing, trading and consulting carbon credits while stunting the growth of fossil-fuel generation capacities.
  • Economic growth: Carbon credits will help developing countries like India carry out economic activities while keeping the country’s carbon goals in perspective.
  • Source of funding: The required $10 trillion investment in areas such as power and hydrogen can be generated through carbon credit trading.

Constitutional provisions for Governor: Pleasure Doctrine


In news

The instance of the Kerala Governor, threatening to sack ministers who 'lowered the dignity' of his office, has resulted in accusations of the Governor overstepping constitutional limits.

Role of Governor

  • Articles 153-161 of the Indian Constitution, prescribe the position, role, powers, and conditions of office of the Governor.
  • Governor is the head of state’s executive power, and barring some matters, acts on the advice of the council of ministers.
  • The office acts as the vital link between the Union and the state governments.
  • Governor enjoys certain powers such as giving or withholding assent to a Bill passed by the state legislature or determining the time needed for a party to prove its majority.

Pleasure Doctrine: Issue in Kerala

  • Article 164(1) says state 'Ministers shall hold office during the pleasure of the Governor'.
  • Related Court Judgements:
  • Supreme Court: Shamsher Singh & Anr vs State Of Punjab (1974)

President and Governor, who are custodians of all executive and other powers under various Articles, shall, by virtue of the provisions, exercise their formal constitutional powers only upon and in accordance with the advice of their Ministers except in few well known exceptional situations.

  • Supreme Court: Nabam Rebia And Etc. vs Deputy Speaker And Ors (2016)
  • What does the “pleasure” of the Governor mean?
    • The pleasure doctrine is a concept derived from English common law, under which the crown can dispense with the services of anyone in its employ at any time.
    • Under Article 164, the Chief Minister is appointed by the Governor; and the other Ministers are appointed by the Governor on the CM’s advice.

It adds that Ministers hold office at the pleasure of the Governor.

  • In a constitutional scheme in which ministers are appointed solely on the CM’s advice, the ‘pleasure’ referred to is also taken to mean the right of the Chief Minister to dismiss a Minister and not that of the Governor.
  • Overall, the Governor of an Indian State cannot remove a Minister on his own.
  • Opinion of Kerala State Government
    • The Constitution does not give the Governor “dictatorial powers”, and it shows a “political bias” against the government.

How to reduce conflicts relating to the Governor's office?

  • National Commission To Review the Working of the Constitution (2000)
    • The Governor of a State should be appointed by the President, after consultation with the Chief Minister of that State, ensuring Political coherency
  • Sarkaria Commission (1983)
    • It proposed that the Vice President of India and Speaker of Lok Sabha should be consulted by the Prime Minister in the selection of Governors.
  • Madan Mohan Punchhi Committee (2007)
    • Committee comprising the Prime Minister, Home Minister, Vice President, Speaker, and the concerned Chief Minister should choose the Governor.
    • Also recommended deleting the “Doctrine of Pleasure” from the Constitution, but backed the right of the Governor to sanction the prosecution of ministers against the advice of the state government.
    • Further, it also argued for a provision for impeachment of the Governor by the state legislature.

Millets Exports to Rise: APEDA


In news

The Government’s Agricultural export promotion body, APEDA has decided to focus on shipments of its organic variety to achieve the target of at least ₹2,000 crore export by FY26.

Millets in India

  • Millets are a group of cereal grains that belong to the Poaceae family, commonly known as the grass family.

  • Large millets include pearl, foxtail, proso, finger (or ragi); Small millets include Kodo, barnyard, little, Guinea, browntop, fonio, adlay (or Job’s tears).
  • India is the largest producer of Millet in the world, with a cultivated area of 12.45 million hectares.
  • Millets are grown in about 21 states in India, with Rajasthan(29.05%) having the highest area under Millet cultivation, followed by Karnataka(13.46%).

Importance of millets cultivation

  • They are drought-resistant crops and grow under harsher conditions, and hence are best suited for arid/semi-arid regions.
  • They are dual-purpose crops, as they provide both food and fodder.
  • They help mitigate climate change as their cultivation help reduce Carbon pressure, unlike Paddy cultivation which emits Methane.
  • Its cultivation suits poor farmers as they are pest-resistant, tolerant to temperature change, requires less water due to an efficient root system and doesn't require the addition of chemical fertiliser.

Challenges associated with Millet production in India

  • Low productivity of millets
    • This is attributed to their cultivation in marginal lands in rainfed farming and non-adoption of improved cultivars.
  • Resistance to pests and diseases
    • No productive cultivars with highly significant resistance to pests and diseases are available and management options are mostly limited to agronomic and chemical methods.
  • Area expansion in non-traditional areas
    • Bringing the additional lands under millets cultivation is another important factor in increasing the production, especially the fallow and wastelands and the non-traditional areas are more sustainable without competing with the high remunerative crop.
  • Seed hubs & breeder seed production
    • There is need for identifying various product-specific cultivars and establishing the seed hubs for breeding and producing such seeds so as to establish demand-driven production.

Measures taken to promote Millets in India

Initiative for Nutritional Security through Intensive Millets Promotion (INSIMP)

  • Launched in 2012 as a part of the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), to advancing equipment and technology related to millet harvest and increasing productivity of inefficient areas.
  • Production Linked Incentive Scheme for Food Processing Industry (PLISFPI)
    • This Incentivized manufacturing of Ready to Cook/Ready to Eat (RTC/ RTE) millet-based foods.
  • Pradhan Mantri Formalization of Micro food processing Enterprises (PMFME)
    • Under this Millet was made part of One District One Product (ODOP) approach to reap the benefit of scale in terms of procurement of inputs, availing common services and marketing of products.
  • Introduction of millets in PDS, mid-day meal
  • India’s initiative to promote millet was recognized and the United Nations General Assembly has declared the year 2023 as the International Year of Millets, to increase awareness about millet in food security, and to encourage investments in research and development.

Geomagnetic Storm - Edukemy Current Affairs


  • Context: A phenomenon called "coronal holes" was spotted on the sun which sometimes interacts with the earth’s magnetic field.
  • The Sun sometimes emits a strong surge of solar wind called a coronal mass ejection. This gust of solar wind disturbs the outer part of the Earth's magnetic field, which undergoes a complex oscillation. This generates associated electric currents in the near-Earth space environment, which in turn generates additional magnetic field variations called "magnetic storm."

  • How do they affect life on earth?
  1. Radio and GPS signals travel through the Ionosphere and so communications can get disrupted.
  2. Satellite drag can have a serious impact on the orbital lifetime of low-Earth-orbiting satellites.

Sena Spectabilis and Invasive species


Why in news? Recently, strategies planned to halt the spread of invasive species over 800 hectares of the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve buffer zone.

About

Senna spectabilis:

  • It is a deciduous tree native to tropical areas of America.
  • It grows up to 15 to 20 meters in a short period of time and distributes thousands of seeds after flowering.

  • The thick foliage of the tree arrests the growth of other indigenous tree and grass species.
  • Thus, it causes food shortages for the wildlife population, especially herbivores.
  • It also adversely affects the germination and growth of native species.
  • It is categorised as ‘Least Concern’ under IUCN Red List.
  • Invasive species, also called introduced species, alien species, or exotic species, any non-native species that significantly modify or disrupt the ecosystems it colonizes. Such species may arrive in new areas through natural migration, but they are often introduced by the activities of other species.
