Assam delimitation: Why now, what are the concerns raised


The Election Commission has begun the process of delimitation, or redrawing of electoral boundaries, in Assam for both Assembly and Parliamentary constituencies.

  • Delimitation has not been carried out in Assam since 1976.
  • The process was announced by the Election Commission on December 27, 2022, after the government requested it in November of the same year.

Why is delimitation being done in Assam alone?

The delimitation process was previously completed in 2008 but was not carried out in Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, and Jammu and Kashmir due to security concerns and the potential for disturbing law and order.

  • In 2020, a Delimitation Commission was established for these states, but in 2021, the commission's mandate was extended only for Jammu and Kashmir.

Issues surrounding:

Discrimination against certain communities: The process has been met with some controversy and criticism, with some alleging that it is being rushed and could lead to discrimination against certain communities.

Alter the demographics: The delimitation process has also been linked to the issue of illegal immigration in the state, with some claiming that it could be used to alter the demographics of certain areas and advantage certain political parties.

Section 8A of the Representation of the People Act, 1950:

The Election Commission has the authority to redraw the boundaries of parliamentary and assembly constituencies in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, and Nagaland, according to Section 8A of the Representation of the People Act, 1950.

The President of India has the power to allow this process to take place if they believe that the conditions in these states are suitable for delimitation to occur.

Revisit Assisted Reproductive Tech Age Limit: Kerala HC


The Kerala High Court has called for a review of the upper age limit for assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatment in India.

  • The court also noted that the upper age limit for ART treatment is higher in other countries and should be revised in light of advancements in medical technology.

What's the issue now?

The current age limit is 50 years for women and 55 years for men under the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) (Regulation) Act, 2021, for undergoing the assisted reproductive technology.

  • The court has argued that this limit is arbitrary and infringes on the reproductive rights and privacy of women.

Need of the hour:

While the State has the power to impose reasonable restrictions, such restriction can always be tested on the touchstone of liberty guaranteed under Article 21.

What next?

The High Court has directed the National Assisted Reproductive Technology and Surrogacy Board to alert the Union government about the need for having a relook at the upper age limit prescribed for using assisted reproductive technology.

Govt. Staff have no right to call strike: HC


The Kerala High Court ruled that there is no constitutional protection for state government employees who participate in a general strike.

What's the issue?

The court made this ruling in response to a petition filed by the Kerala State Government Employees Association, which challenged the disciplinary action taken against a group of employees who participated in a general strike in 2018.

Key observations made by the court:

  • The participation of government employees in a strike would result in the disruption of essential public services, which is not in the public interest.
  • The right to strike is not an absolute right and can be restricted by law in the interests of the general public.

Is it a constitutional right?

Strike is not expressly recognized in the Constitution of India. The Supreme Court settled the case of Kameshwar Prasad v. The State of Bihar 1958 by stating that strike is not a fundamental right.

Who was Birsa Munda? - Edukemy Current Affairs


The Chief Minister of Odisha, Naveen Patnaik, inaugurated the Birsa Munda Hockey Stadium in Rourkela ahead of the Hockey World Cup in 2023.

  • The Hockey World Cup is being held in India for the first time, and the Birsa Munda Hockey Stadium will host some of the matches.

Who was Birsa Munda?

Bisra Munda was a folk hero and freedom fighter from the Munda tribe in Bihar and Jharkhand, India, who lived in the 19th century during British colonization.

He is also known as "Dharti Abba" or "Earth Father."

Bisra started a movement called "Ulgulan," or "The Great Tumult," to protest against the exploitation and discrimination of tribals. He also founded the Birsait faith, which encouraged prayer, abstention from alcohol, belief in God, and a code of conduct among tribals.

  • He also founded the Birsait faith, which encouraged prayer, abstention from alcohol, belief in God, and a code of conduct among tribals.
  • Bisra's efforts led to the passage of the Chotanagpur Tenancy Act in 1908, which protected the land rights of tribals.
  • The Munda Rebellion, led by Birsa Munda in 1899-1900, was a significant tribal movement that protested against British land policies, the takeover of tribal land by Hindu landlords and moneylenders, and the criticism of traditional culture by missionaries.
  • The rebellion helped to bring about legal protections for tribal land and demonstrated the ability of tribal people to resist injustice and protest against colonial rule.

Supreme Court’s ruling on Article 19

Context: Recently, the Supreme Court has ruled that a citizen can seek enforcement of the fundamental rights to freedom of speech not just against the state.

  • By this ruling, the Supreme Court has, effectively, extended the ground for seeking these rights against other citizens.

Key highlights of Supreme Court’s order:

  • The 4-1 majority the Constitution Bench said, “A fundamental right under Article 19/21 can be enforced even against persons other than the State or its instrumentalities”.
  • The right of free speech and expression guaranteed under the Article 19(1)(a) cannot be curbed by any additional grounds other than those already laid down in Article 19(2).
  • The Court relied on the 2017 verdict in Puttaswamy where a nine-judge bench unanimously upheld privacy as a fundamental right.
  • The government argued that privacy is a right enforceable against other citizens and, therefore, cannot be elevated to the status of a fundamental right against the state.
  • The Court also referred to several foreign jurisdictions, and said, “No jurisdiction in the world appears to be adopting, at least as on date, a purely vertical approach or a wholly horizontal approach.

What are vertical and horizontal application of rights?

  • A vertical application of rights would mean it can be enforced only against the state while a horizontal approach would mean it is enforceable against other citizens.
  • For example, a horizontal application of the right to life would enable a citizen to bring a case against a private entity for causing pollution, which would be a violation of the right to a clean environment.


  • The court, extending free speech against private citizens, opens up a range of possibilities in Constitutional law.
  • This interpretation could also bring an obligation on the state to ensure private entities also abide by Constitutional norms.

What is Delimitation? - Edukemy Current Affairs

As mandated under Article 170 of the Constitution, census figures (2001) shall be used for the purpose of readjustment of parliamentary and assembly constituencies in the state.

Reservation of seats for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes will be provided as per Articles 330 and 332 of the Constitution of India.

Controversy over Delhi ‘aldermen’

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Aldermen have duties and responsibilities similar to those of council members or councillors, such as participating in council meetings, voting on legislation, and representing the interests of their constituents.

Tokyo's Demographic Crisis: Japan's New Drift

What is it?

Tokyo drift is referring the new measures Japan is applying to address its demographic crisis.

Key points about Japan’s demographic crisis:

  • Japan is facing a demographic crisis due to its declining population and aging society.
  • The government has implemented various measures to address this issue, including increasing immigration and promoting higher birth rates.
  • However, these measures have had limited success and the population continues to decline.
  • Japan's declining population and aging society have significant economic and social implications, including a shrinking workforce and increased pressure on the country's social security system.
  • The government is now considering more radical measures to address the demographic crisis, such as incentivizing people to have more children and easing restrictions on immigration.

Measures taken:

  • The Japanese government is offering young families in Tokyo 1 million yen (about $7,600) per child to move to the hinterlands, or even the more hilly and less inhabited regions of the greater Tokyo area.


  • As far as money goes, it’s always cheaper to live outside the realm of overpriced real estate.
  • It is likely that the Japanese government is trying to capitalise on a ground level shift. It remains to be seen if the lure of city lights holds out, or not.

Digitalizing Ayushman Bharat: Accessible Healthcare


The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the benefits of digital innovation and technology-enabled solutions in the healthcare sector.

  • Prior to the pandemic, private entities, health technology players, and the public sector were already working towards digitization in the healthcare industry.
  • In recognition of the need for a comprehensive digital healthcare ecosystem to bring together existing siloed efforts and move towards proactive, holistic, and patient-centric healthcare, the Indian government has created shared public goods for healthcare and developed a framework for a nationwide digital health system.

The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) was launched by the government in September 2021 to address these issues and bring healthcare in India to a turning point.

How has ABDM addressed these issues?

  1. The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) has implemented key components to bring together all stakeholders in the digital healthcare ecosystem in India.
  2. The Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) creates a standard identifier for patients across healthcare providers.
  3. The ABHA and its associated Personal Health Record (PHR) app allow citizens to link, store, and share their health records in order to access healthcare services with autonomy and consent.
  4. The Health Facility Registry (HFR) and the Health Professional Registries (HPR) provide verified digital identities to large and small public and private health facilities and professionals.
  5. The ABDM has already reached significant milestones, with over 300 million ABHAs and 50 million health records linked.

Other digital initiatives planned by the government for the healthcare sector:

  • The Unified Health Interface (UHI) is a Digital Public Good being developed by the Indian government to enable all healthcare service providers and end-user applications to interact with each other on its network.
  • The government is repurposing Aarogya Setu and CoWIN to support the UHI: Aarogya Setu will be transformed into a general health and wellness application, and CoWIN will be integrated with a lite Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) for small clinics.
  • The government is also introducing Heal by India, a platform that will make India's healthcare professionals' services available worldwide.
  • A platform is being developed to automate the allocation of deceased organ and tissue donations, in order to make the process faster and more transparent.

Need of the hour:

Digitise and automate the insurance claim settlement process through the Health Claim Exchange  platform.

  • This will make claim-related information verifiable, auditable, traceable and interoperable among various entities, enabling claim processing to become inexpensive, transparent and carried out in real time.

DGCA Rebukes Air India: Urination Incident, Notices Issued


India’s aviation regulator pulled up Air India, saying its handling of the incident where a passenger urinated on a woman on-board a New York-Delhi flight appears to have been “unprofessional”, “devoid of empathy”, reflected “systemic failures”, and smacked of “dereliction of duty”.


  • After the incident, air India has constituted an internal committee to probe lapses on part of the airline's crew and “address the deficiencies that delayed quick redressal of the situation.”

Issues involved:

  • The crew allegedly did not act promptly enough to make the situation comfortable for the latter.
  • The conduct of the concerned airline appears to be unprofessional and has led to a systemic failure.
  • Prima facie it lacks appreciation of regulatory obligations as described in applicable Aircraft Rules 1937, Civil Aviation Requirements (CAR) and is devoid of empathy.
