The Cinematograph (Amendment) Bill 2023

Why in News: Recently, The Rajya Sabha passed the Cinematograph (Amendment) Bill 2023 that introduces stringent anti-piracy provisions, expanding the scope of the law from censorship to also cover copyright.

Cinematograph (Amendment) Bill 2023:

  • Introduced by the Ministry of I&B, the Bill seeks to amend the Cinematograph Act 1952.
  • The Cinematograph Act 1952 authorises the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to require cuts in films and clear them for exhibition in cinemas and on television/ refuse the exhibition of a film.
  • Under the Act, film may be certified for exhibition:
    • without restriction (‘U’),
    • without restriction, but subject to guidance of parents or guardians for children below 12 years of age (‘UA’),
    • only to adults (‘A’),
    • only to members of any profession or class of persons (‘S’).

Key Provisions of the Amendment Bill:

  • Introduction of New Certifications: The bill proposes three new certifications under the ‘UA’ (Parental Guidance) category: UA 7+, UA 13+, and UA 16+. These certifications indicate that children younger than the specified age limits can watch such movies with parental guidance. [in line with the Shyam Benegal committee (2017)]
  • Separate certificate for television/other media: Films with an ‘A’ or ‘S’ certificate will require a separate certificate for exhibition on television, or any other media prescribed by the central government. The Board may direct the applicant to carry appropriate deletions or modifications for the separate certificate.
  • Unauthorised recording and exhibition to be punishable: The Bill prohibits carrying out or abetting - the unauthorised recording and unauthorised exhibition of films - in order to stop piracy. This offence will be punishable with: imprisonment between 3 months and 3 years, and a fine between 3 lakh rupees and 5% of the audited gross production cost.
  • Certificates to be always valid: Under the Act, the certificate issued by the Board is valid for 10 years. The Bill provides that the certificates will be perpetually/always valid.
  • Revisional powers of the central government: The Act empowers the central government to examine and make orders in relation to films that have been certified or are pending certification. The Board is required to dispose of matters in conformity to the order. The Bill removes this power of the central government.

Significance of the Bill:

  • It will make the certification process more effective, as per the demand of current time.
  • It will comprehensively curb the menace of film piracy, and thus help in faster growth of the film industry and boost job creation in the sector.

Concerns with the Bill:

  • OTT platforms out of the purview of the Bill which makes a way for uncut movie to be broadcasted.
  • It places the onus on parents and guardians to determine if the material is appropriate for viewers of a particular age range.

Cooling Solutions - Edukemy Current Affairs

In News: According to NITI Aayog, around 65% of the energy demand in India comes from space cooling and heating. And it is projected that India will see an 11-fold increase in cooling demand in buildings by 2037-38, compared to the 2017-18 baseline.

About Cooling Solutions:

  • Recognising increasing power demands for space cooling and heating, India launched the Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) in 2019.
  • It is predicted that a potential reduction of around 20% in cooling load could be achieved by 2037-38, through climate-appropriate building envelopes.
  • An additional 30% reduction in cooling energy can be achieved through improvements in cooling equipment efficiency and better servicing and operation and maintenance practices.

Customised Cooling Solutions:

Large-scale spaces with cooling solutions that are low in energy consumption, applicable in varying climatic conditions and could reduce the need for conventional air conditioners in India are:

  • Tapping the earth’s potential: Temperature just 4 m below the Earth’s surface remains relatively constant throughout the year which can work as a heat sink or a heat source depending on the season. NIIT University in Neemrana, Rajasthan, has used this potential, wherein ambient air is filtered and passed through 100-m-long tunnels embedded inside Earth. This cools the air without adding humidity by 10-12°C.
  • Evaporative Cooling: It involves passing hot air through a medium that is saturated with water. The air transfers heat to the water, causing it to

evaporate and turn into vapour. As a result, the air becomes cool and moist, providing thermal comfort. IIT Gandhinagar has constructed its dining halls which use this principle.

  • Cooling sans humidifying: It uses an indirect evaporative cooling system where the incoming air stream is cooled using water carrying pipes. The air, however, does not directly touch the water; it only interacts with the pipes containing it. Thus, heat is exchanged between the air and the water, without acquiring moisture.
  • Dehumidifying: Filtering ambient air through a desiccant (a substance that can absorb moisture) can dehumidify air and then the dehumidified air would be cooled through evaporative cooling. Nalanda University in Bihar uses this technique.

India’s Rice Export Ban - Edukemy Current Affairs

In News: India recently decided to ban the export of all types of rice, except Basmati and parboiled rice. As per IMF, this move could exacerbate food prices and inflation globally.

About the Rice Export Ban:

  • India is the world’s biggest rice exporter, accounting for 40% of global trade by volume. In 2022, it shipped 22m tonnes to more than 140 countries. Non-basmati white rice constitutes approximately 25% of the total rice exported from the country
  • Most of the exports consist of non-basmati rice especially popular in poor places such as Bangladesh, Nepal and parts of sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Previously, India has implemented restrictions on non-basmati white rice exports to ensure sufficient availability in the domestic market at reasonable prices.
  • According to the rice-price index, published monthly by the FAO, rice prices rose by 14% in the year to June.

Implications of ban of rice exports:

  • Global Supply Shortage: The ban will remove almost 10 million tons of non-basmati white rice from the world market, leading to a decrease in overall rice supply.
  • Rise is global rice prices: The reduction in supply is likely to create a surge in world rice prices. Other rice-exporting countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Pakistan, US, and Myanmar cannot fill the gap left by India’s absence.
  • Domestic Supply Concerns: The ban is a response to domestic supply concerns caused by subnormal monsoon rainfall in major growing states.
  • Loss of credibility as a reliable trade partner: The ban raises questions about the credibility of official output estimates, especially when India recorded all-time-high production of both wheat and rice in 2022-23.
  • Hindrances to Market Building Efforts: Building markets takes time and effort, and the sudden ban can undo the progress made in establishing India as a reliable rice supplier in various regions.
  • Potential of a Domino effect where other rice producing countries could ban rice exports as witnessed during the 2008 rice ban by Vietnam.

Persons with Disabilities - Edukemy Current Affairs

Why in news? Recently, the Centre is facing criticism from rights activists and the Opposition for omitting disability-related questions in the sixth round of the National Family Health Survey (NFHS).


  • The government’s response to the Parliamentary committee’s earlier recommendations explained that data on PwDs is primarily derived from decennial censuses and sample surveys on disability.
  • The government also introduced Unique Disability ID (UDID) cards for individuals covered under disability schemes, but the committee found this approach insufficient, as the number of issued UDID cards did not match the estimated PwD population.
  • The committee emphasized the need for innovative solutions and recommended that the government collaborate with State governments and other departments/organizations involved in PwD welfare schemes to arrive at a realistic assessment of the PwD population in the country.

Approval Voting - Edukemy Current Affairs

Exam View: Current political situation in India; Unholy alliances; Reasons behind such alliances; Approval voting.

Context: Instead of the first-past-the-post system, voters should be able to choose ‘Many of the Above’ from multiple candidates and parties could end the need for opportunistic electoral alliances.

Decoding the editorial: Current political situation in India

Unholy alliances

  • Twenty-six opposition parties met in Bengaluru with an objective to unite all the political parties that are ideologically opposed to the BJP.
    • At the same time, there are also 30 other political parties in a meeting in Delhi, under the leadership of the ruling BJP, to consolidate an anti-Congress bloc.
    • These parties on either side of the ideological spectrum are not natural alliance partners, who are in perfect harmony with each other.
  • Another big travesty of Indian politics today is the deceit foisted on voters by political parties that win seats under one alliance and then switch to the other side post the election, under the mistaken notion that the seats they won are entirely theirs.

Reasons behind such alliances

  • To ensure that votes of one formation do not get divided.
    • These initiatives are merely a political response to the arithmetic of the first-past-the-post (FPTP) electoral system in India’s extremely diverse political landscape.
  • More than 600 parties contest the general elections and nearly three dozen parties have at least one member in Parliament.
    • In an extremely diverse society such as India, the proliferation of hundreds of political parties is a reflection of the need for representation.
    • Indian politics cannot be force-fitted into a two-party system like other democracies.
    • The FPTP method is incongruous with India’s unique political diversity.

Approval voting

Voters do not have to rank their preference of candidates and the winner is determined by the candidate with the greatest number of “approvals” or tick marks.

  • In the Indian context, we can think of approval voting as MOTA (Many Of The Above), the mirror image of NOTA that we already have on every ballot.
  • The voter would be free to choose as many parties as she wants to. It would indicate that she is agnostic between two or three parties.
  • When there are no restrictions on the number of candidates a voter can choose, it drives voters to eliminate those that they completely disapprove of and express their approval of as many as they wish.
  • A vote for one party would not necessarily mean a vote denied for another and an explicit alliance between the two parties is not needed.
    • It is more aligned to prevent the splitting of votes among numerous parties.
  • It could potentially obviate the need for such elaborate and complex alliance and unity-building initiatives.
  • It is simple and easy for the average Indian voter to just tick all parties that she wants to vote for.
  • Research and experience in other countries have shown that MOTA is very powerful in producing outcomes that are acceptable to a greater majority in a multi-party democracy.
  • MOTA can be a befitting solution to end “aya Ram gaya Ram” woes in Indian politics.
  • This system, called “approval voting”, is a well-researched voting methodology that is used in elections with multiple credible choices, such as in
    • The United Nations,
    • Internal party primaries in the US, and
    • The election of the Pope.

India’s political diversity is both a necessity and an inevitability. Replacing the FPTP method with MOTA can fundamentally alter Indian politics and society for the better by reducing opportunistic political alliances in favor of ideological politics.
