Top NewsWritten by Bibek Debroy | Updated: July 7 2016 8:54 am If there is agreement that statutes such as the Rajasthan Regulation of Boating Act (1956) can be done away with we could reduce the final tally to just 100 Top News This is the story of the Rajasthan law reform project an exhilarating exercise I have had the good fortune to be part of since 2014 — first as a member of the Rajasthan chief minister’s economic advisory council and subsequently since 2015 as a member of the Niti Aayog As a citizen I am supposed to obey the laws of the land But how can I do that if I don’t even know what the statutes and the associated rules are or what they say Contrary to the general impression it isn’t easy to get a list and text of the statutes It’s not just the Union government the states too legislate No one knows for certain how many state-level statutes there are A figure of 25000 floats around based on the assumption that there might be an average of around 900 statutes per state However this is no more than a guess Don’t get me wrong In general we do know the important statutes and rules I meant the entire corpus not just the important ones Once the entire database is available there are several steps required for statutory law reform; the speed of dispute resolution being a separate issue First are there old statutes and rules that can be repealed similar to the recent Union government initiative Second can one rationalise and harmonise statutes/rules and avoid the confusion that lack of standardisation causes Third can one place all statutes/rules in the public domain Fourth can one reduce excessive government intervention in statutes/rules As a possible template such a massive reform exercise doesn’t take off unless it has the personal interest and the blessings of the chief minister That message has to percolate through to departments To state something not often appreciated: Rajasthan government doesn’t administer a statute/rule; a specific department within the Rajasthan government does and every such department regards its statutes/rules as proprietary stuff not to be trifled with That’s where the CM’s intervention is vital Equally importantly there has to be a faceless bureaucrat who will take the CM’s agenda and run with it pestering and hounding departments refusing to back off Posterity will not pardon me if I let that bureaucrat remain faceless Had it not been for Rakesh Verma the additional chief secretary I am certain we wouldn’t have delivered This isn’t about the Industrial Disputes Act This isn’t about the corporate sector It is about all the laws/statutes and all citizens It is about making laws friendlier including simpler language where fresh drafting is involved Rajasthan is the only state to have done this Kerala repealed 697 statutes in 2005 and another 107 in 2009 That was huge but not exhaustive Rajasthan’s exercise is exhaustive We began with the presumption there were around 900 statutes and tried to list all of them and get their texts We had been given a figure of 900 but there were only 592 laws after some appropriation acts were scrapped The 900 figure was plain wrong Of the 592 405 were principal acts and 187 were amending acts But texts of around 45 were simply missing Most bizarre was the fact that copies of these texts didn’t even exist in the state legislative assembly Eventually texts were obtained from the government printing press The first step was an outright repeal of the old and unnecessary statutes/rules This required extensive haggling In some cases we had to justify a repeal and in other cases we had to justify retention In all 61 principal acts and 187 amending acts were eventually repealed in October 2015 Eight ordinances retained since 1949 too were scrapped That left us with 344 In the leftover list of 344 there were other issues There were statutes that had been overtaken and replaced by Union legislation and rules Blissfully ignorant the respective department continued to enforce an act/rule that was obsolete The Rajasthan Corneal Grafting Act of 1984 is an example Next we moved on to the rationalisation and harmonisation of statutes/rules Why should there be 43 private university acts and not one Why shouldn’t the Rajasthan Identification of Prisoners Act (1956) the Rajasthan Prisoners Act (1960) and the Rajasthan Prisons Act (1894) be consolidated into one That’s the stage we are in at present Initially we had thought the task would take until February 2017 but we will be through with it in September 2016 when we would have trimmed the number of statues to just 277 With the state government’s commitment this gives you an idea of how long it takes to get to this stage — roughly 2 years All these statutes/rules will be available online; the process has already started But the consolidation is still partial Take the revenue department as an example As of now we are consolidating statutes under four broad heads — land revenue tenancy land reforms and the imposition of ceilings Though messy it might well be possible to reduce all land-related statutes to a cluster of just 2 heads When the next phase of consolidation is done the 277 statutes will be down to 150 In fact if there is agreement that statutes such as the Rajasthan Regulation of Boating Act (1956) can be done away with we

collective foot off the gas in Friday’s third one-day international against New Zealand in Melbourne despite it being a dead rubber according to all-rounder Mitchell Marsh Marsh clubbed an impressive 76 not out from 40 balls in the second game in Canberra on Tuesday as Steve Smith’s side scored 378 for five They then dismissed New Zealand for 262 in 472 overs to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series Mitchell Marsh of Australia bats during the second ODI against New Zealand Getty Images "We’re representing our country in the series and we want to win 3-0" said Marsh who was part of the side swept 5-0 in South Africa and knows the dent in confidence that can bring Despite his own return to form in Canberra Marsh felt that would not be enough to earn a recall for the Test series against Pakistan "I’m not in a rush to get back in the Test side" said the 25-year-old who was dropped from the side after scoring 0 and 26 in the first test match against South Africa in Perth last month "But I know that I’ve got to score runs to get back so that’s all I want to do" The innings at Manuka Oval showcased how dangerous he could be as he belted seven sixes including three in the final over from Matt Henry and he felt an aggressive approach may help him in future "When you’re not scoring runs you tend to try play with things in the nets to try and make something work" he said "I think in red ball cricket over the last couple of years I probably haven’t played my natural game "For me I’m a hitter of the cricket ball Probably over the next few months I’m just going to bat like that and really back myself "I might get out a few ugly ways at times but I feel like it’s going to give me the best chance to score runs and score big runs" Despite his pessimism about earning a recall for the series against Pakistan which starts with a day-night Test at the Gabba in Brisbane on 15 December he still held out hopes of being named for the tour of India next February "I’ve obviously got the (Twenty20) Big Bash but throughout that period you’ve got a lot of time to work on your game so I’ll certainly be doing that" he said "Hopefully in the second half of the year when I

the lover boy and action hero to more character-driven roles has been smooth and the actor says unlike some other Bollywood stars he does not believe in stretching himself beyond his age as it annoys the audience The 58-year-old actor who has a career spanning almost four decades says the reason for his long and continuing journey in the film industry was his timely realisation that he can’t play the age-defying hero anymore “You can’t be delusional I have to play roles that suit me There are actors who are very delusional and I feel very sad for them They try to stretch and people get fed up
