SHRI DINESH TRIVEDI (WEST BENGAL): I will not repeat, Sir. First of all, this is not really a partisan issue. I think the entire country and the House must take note of this that we as Members of Parliament in this House are not really concerned with the dynamics of the market. Market can go up and market can come down as long as it is a natural dynamic of market. But, Sir, the Finance Minister has gone on record saying that this is a "manufactured crisis." Sir, this is where I am concerned...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please, don't show the papers.

SHRI DINESH TRIVEDI: Sir, I will not show the paper. I am not showing the paper. I am just holding it in my hand in case somebody wants to see it. This is where the Finance Minister has gone on record that this is a "manufactured crisis." Sir, we are not concerned with the people with money. As Ahluwaliaji said, today the poorer people who can hardly afford -- those who live on pensions also -- are investing in market because the interest rate has gone down. My concern, and I will take just one more minute, is because of them. Sir, the Finance Minister has said that this is a "manufactured crisis" -- manufactured through the media. But, Sir, it is not the media, it is a Department of the Finance Ministry, the CBDT, which has given a circular on its website. This is an old circular of 1989. Sir, this has been circulated and they have created this kind of..

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: All these things have appeared in the Press.

SHRI DINESH TRIVEDI: Sir, I just want to ask one question. As far as tax proposals are concerned, is it the CBDT or the Finance Minister himself..

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Question please.

SHRI DINESH TRIVEDI: My question is: Did the Finance Minister himself instruct the CBDT to give this circular? This is number one. Two, I request the Government to come on the floor of this House and clarify this. (Contd. by VKK/1R)

VKK-HMS/1r/12.20

SHRI DINESH TRIVEDI (CONTD.): And thirdly, Sir, there has to be a CBI inquiry wherever some such thing happens, such circulars come and then comes the clarification. This has happened in the case of SEBI. It has happened in the case of the Ministry of Finance. Sir, I request that the Finance Minister should come here and clarify the matter. (Ends)

SHRI CHITTABRATA MAJUMDAR (WEST BENGAL): Sir, I would like to add a feature. Now, it has come to our notice through the newspaper report that the Finance Minister has assured the foreign investors that taxes will not be applicable to them. Now, the Central Board of Direct Taxes has issued certain papers etc. for views. But, now the Finance Minister has announced that these will not be applicable to the foreign investors. These investors are earning profits in our country. So, what is the matter of great concern is that our policies are being dictated by the pressure of the US multinationals. That is the pressure...(Interruptions)...

SHRIMATI BRINDA KARAT: Sir, this is the question.

SHRI CHITTABRATA MAJUMDAR: Sir, it is a matter of great concern and it is against the national interest of our country.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Now, the hon. Leader of the Opposition.

RE: CONCERN OVER HAPPENINGS IN OUR REGION

AND IMMEDIATE NEIGHBOURHOOD

THE LEADER OF OPPOSITION (SHRI JASWANT SINGH): Thank you, Mr. Deputy Chairman. Sir, I will be very brief in accordance with your injunction. I rise to give voice to a very great sense of disquiet and that disquiet arises from the overall management of the country's international relations, most specifically in the context of what is happening both in our region and our immediate neighbourhood. I am saddened, Sir, when I observe that all around our region and in the immediate neighbourhood what prevails is disorder and a degree of anomie. When faced with this kind of a challenge, it would have been our expectation that the Government of India asserts the autonomy of its policy formulation and implementation; instead, we have witnessed today a continuous drift and a sense of rising despair. I would be specific, Sir, and I will cite examples, more pointedly of Iran, because the situation, as it is developing there, I believe, is a matter of very grave concern to India. In the face of such a challenge, I am bewildered and I am extremely concerned. I say this with restraint as much as I can command as to why our Government is meeting this situation with utter, absolute and deafening silence. It is such a silence, Sir, which I have said, converts policy into a nullity and that is the concern. I do believe, Sir, and I say it with utmost seriousness that the Government's handling of the situation is a betrayal of the Indian interests. I wish to share, Sir, that I cannot but help carrying an impression that the Government of India has mortgaged its thought and policy -- and most sadly, the conduct of its foreign policy lately -- to the United States of America, and if it is not to the United States of America, to whom has it mortgaged its policy and why is this silence? I do wish to emphasise, Sir, that the Government's silence is not just regional..... (Contd. by 1s)

PSV-RSS/1S/12.25

SHRI JASWANT SINGH (CONTD.)... it is also in relation to or in regard to the immediate neighbourhood, be it Bangladesh or Afghanistan, that we have witnessed, particularly, in East Afghanistan, in the last two, three days, the recrudescence of violence and over a hundred deaths. That is a matter of immediate and direct concern to India; it is a matter of immediate and direct Indian interest. In Sri Lanka, which stands on the edge, especially, a kind of civil war again, and the Government of India is again silent. What we have witnessed in Nepal, Sir, without doubt is an assertion of the will of the people of Nepal, but, I cannot help expressing a view that I, as an Indian, and as a neighbour of Nepal, feel diminished, and I feel a sense of being diminished that Nepal today declares and changes its constitution. It is their right. They can change it. But, when they say that they are no longer a Hindu Kingdom, I do feel diminished....(Interruptions)...

SHRI SHAHID SIDDIQUI: Why? ... (Interruptions)..

SHRI SITARAM YECHURY: Why?

SHRI JASWANT SINGH: It is my view...(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: That is his view...(Interruptions)...

SHRI JASWANT SINGH: Some hon. Members are asking why? It is because that is my view, and I cannot go if I were to go into a dissertation of why I feel that. Then, that will be a, debate in itself. But, I do feel diminished, and I would be dishonest if I did not say that I feel diminished, just as I would be equally dishonest if I did not give voice to my sense of disquiet. But, how we are handling the situation with regard to Iran. Sir, I wish to submit that India and Iran's relations are not a consequence of Columbus's accidental discovery of the United States of America. Columbus stumbled upon the shores of America. Iran and India's relations go back millennia. The way we are treating them today, are a betrayal of our history, it is a betrayal of the dictates and demands of geography, it is a betrayal of the whole concept of regional security, and it is also a betrayal, I submit hon. Members, of the entire concept of stability in the region. It is a dream that we carry that without a regional power like Iran, there can ever be lasting stability in our region or in West Asia or elsewhere. I will not take long, Sir. I have to say that we are witnessing today globally-- and I am giving voice to something that even the concerned observers in the United States of America are giving voice to-- that the world today is seized by a kind of anti-Americanism that I have not witnessed for very many, many decades. When the world is moving in a direction of anti-Americanism, for India and the Government of India, ceased as it is, or paralysed almost because of the July 18th agreement, to place on mortgage what it is doing, and it is not just that. I say this with great concern. The entire Islamic world today feels a very great sense of anti-Americanism as the United States policies are directed only against Islam; and I gave voice to my feelings about Nepal. I gave voice because it is my feeling and I remain convinced that I do feel diminished. I equally feel diminished....(Interruptions)...

SHRI JANARDHANA POOJARY: Sir, what is this?...(Interruptions)...

ߴ֟ ִ þָ֕ : ֟ , ֲ ָ ֟ ...(־֮֬)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Mr. Poojary, this is the convention that when the Leader of the Opposition speaks, the entire House listens to him...(Interruptions)... I request you not to interrupt him... It is their view. You express your view when your turn comes.

(Contd. by 1t)

-RSS-TMV-KLG/1T/12.30

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN (CONTD.): But it is their view. (Interruptions)... This is Parliament. (Interruptions)... Please.

SHRI JASWANT SINGH: Sir, I do wish to make a few sentences only. I can understand the hon. Member's impatience. The hon. Member is never agitated in the House. He is one of the most self-contained and disciplined Members and his conduct has, so far, never displayed a lack of restraint. (Interruptions)....

Sir, I wish to repeat that it is just an illusion that we carry in our mind that we can forsake the interest of regional stability or the immediate neighbour's stability and hang all that on the July 18th nuclear agreement. I caution the Government and I caution the Government in utmost seriousness because in the Indo-US relations and the global anti-US feelings--and the sense globally, today, is that the United States' policies are anti-Islam--that is an aspect of perception and reality and in that silence or ignorance of policy or appearance of disunanimity or appearance of having mortgaged our policy and the appearance of even being subservient to the United States of America is so damaging to India that it will take decades for us to set it right. Please desist from this disastrous pursuit. Please correct your approach. Please stand up. I appeal to the Government to stand up and let India's voice be heard because you can't have regional stability or immediate neighbour's stability unless India and Iran work together in West Asia. It is not just simply a question of oil. It is a question of the civilizational entities that are as ancient as time, for Iran and for us. There is a great deal more that I could have said. But, I thought, it is a Friday, I do wish to give some voice. Why do I say this? Just one or two sentences. The Government today has perfected a policy of practising deliberate silence. If I write to the senior Members of the Union Cabinet, I am met with what I call "deafening silence". I never experienced it in all my life. This is my seventh time in Parliament. My letters to the Government have not even been acknowledged. I would not cite whom I have written to. These letters were all on policy issues. I do appeal to you, Sir, and I appeal to the entire House, please take note of what I say. Throw it out of the window if you don't agree with it. But, at least, please reflect on it. Thank you.

SHRI SITARAM YECHURY (WEST BENGAL): Sir, I will take just a minute. I am only rising to share the concerns which the Leader of the Opposition has raised on this question of Iran. I only want to go on record that I am very happy that, given the anti-US sentiments worldwide that he mentioned, he has also shifted and come to this side. It is very good. I would appreciate this very much. But, at the same time, I would like to make a submission, since the hon. Minister is here, on this issue. There are reports that are appearing that India has abandoned the entire concept of the Iran gas pipeline and we are, in fact, going in for an alternative with Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. If that is true, it is indeed very grave. It is very grave and we would like to have an answer to that.

Secondly, Sir, as far as Nepal is concerned, I think, this House must congratulate the people of Nepal for restoring democracy and for restoring a secular character in that country. We should go on record.

SHRI RUDRA NARAYAN PANY (ORISSA): ָ, ֜

Sir, I want to know from the Government of India as to why the three sophisticated Government of India Textbooks Presses, which were gifted by the Federal Republic of West Germany under the UNESCO Programme, being privatised? Why an amount of about Rs.26 crores is going to be invested for modernising some old and obsolete Government of India Presses while the three most modern and sophisticated Textbooks Presses at Mysore, Chandigarh and Bhubaneswar are being privatised? Some Government of India Presses which had been modernised a few years back by investing crores of rupees but failed are again being modernised. What is the reason for wasting such a huge amount for modernising those Presses? The hon. Minister of Urban Development is requested to clarify why the textbooks printing has been stopped in the Government of India Textbooks Presses since 1985, and only Government of India forms are being printed since then. Who is responsible for it? ...(Interruptions)...

The textbooks of NCERT, ICSE, Central University and Open University are now being printed in private presses, while three healthy and functional Government of India Textbooks Presses are being privatised.

CALLING ATTENTION TO GRAVE SITUATION ARISING OUT OF RAMPANT FEMALE FOETICIDE AND RESULTANT IMBALANCE IN SEX RATIO IN THE COUNTRY

ㇵ (֬ Ϥ) : ֳ֯ן , ֯ ן þã ׸ָ ӡ ֮ ֜ ׸ִþֺ ػ ֟ ӟ֮ ָ ™

kgg/1z/12.5

THE MINISTER OF HEALTH & FAMILY WELFARE: (DR. ANBUMANI RAMDOSS): Sir, sex ratio (number of females per thousand males) is one the most important indicator used for study of population characteristics. Declining trend in sex ratio has been a matter of concern for all in the country. Sex ratio in India has declined over the century from 972 in 1901 to 927 in 1991. The sex ratio has since gone up to 933 in 2001.

In contrast the child sex ratio for the age group of 0-6 years in 2001 is 927 girls per thousand boys against 945 recorded in 1991 Census. The encouraging trend in the sex ratio during 1991-2001 was marred by the decline of 18 points in the sex ratio of children aged 6 years or below. The Census 2001 figures further reveal that the child sex ratio is comparatively lower in the affluent regions, i.e., Punjab (798), Haryana (819), Chandigarh (845), Delhi (868), Gujarat (883) and Himachal Pradesh (896).

Some of the reasons commonly put forward to explain the consistently low levels of sex ratio are son preference, neglect of the girl child resulting in higher mortality at younger age, female infanticide, female foeticide, higher maternal mortality and male bias in enumeration of population. The last, but not the least, may be the latest trend of having preference for a small family of one son and one daughter. Easy availability of the sex determination tests and abortion services may also be proving to be catalyst in the process, which may be further stimulated by pre-conception sex selection facilities.

Sex determination techniques have been in use in India since 1975 primarily for the determination of genetic abnormalities. However, these techniques were widely misused to determine the sex of the foetus and subsequent abortions if the foetus was found to be female. Invariably the person who seeks the illegal service and the service provider, both are in agreement to defeat/circumvent the provisions of the law. Unlike in other eases, both the parties are gainers in this matter. On the one hand, the people are able to get rid of the foetus of unwanted sex and on the other, the service providers are benefited financially. Non-availability of evidence/witness is therefore the main hindrance in the way of punishing errant doctors unless they are caught red-handed.

In order to check female foeticide, the Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act, 1994, was brought into operation from 1st January, 1996. The Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act, 1994 has since been amended to make it more comprehensive. The amended Act and Rules came into force with effect from 14.2.2003 and the PNDT Act has been renamed as "Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act, 1994" to make it more comprehensible.

The technique of pre-conception sex selection has been brought within the ambit of this Act so as to pre-empt the use of such technologies, which significantly contribute to the declining sex ratio. Use of ultrasound machines has also been brought within the purview of this Act more explicitly so as to curb their misuse for detection and disclosure of sex of the foetus lest it should lead to female foeticide. The Central Supervisory Board (CSB) constituted under the Chairmanship of Minister for Health and Family Welfare has been further empowered for monitoring the implementation of the Act. State level Supervisory Boards in the line of the CSB constituted at the Centre has been introduced for monitoring and reviewing the implementation of the Act in States/UTs. The State/UT level Appropriate Authority has been made a multi member body for better implementation and monitoring of the Act in the States. More stringent punishments are prescribed under the Act so as to serve as a deterrent for minimizing violations of the Act: Appropriate Authorities are empowered with the powers of Civil Court for search, seizure and sealing the machines, equipments and records of the violators of law including sealing of premises and commissioning of witnesses. It has been made mandatory to maintain proper records in respect of the use of ultrasound machines and other equipments capable of detection of sex of foetus and also in respect of tests and procedures that may lead to pre-conception selection of sex. The sale of ultrasound machines has been regulated through laying down the condition of sale only to the bodies registered under the Act.

Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has taken number of steps for the implementation of the Act and directions of the Supreme Court.

National Inspection and Monitoring Committee (NIMC): A National Monitoring and Inspection Committee have been constituted at the Centre to take stock of the ground realities by field visits to the problem States. The Committee visits vulnerable States/districts and submit the report to the Central Supervisory Board (CSB) and the concerned State authorities. It also monitors the prosecutions launched against un-bodies and bodies violating provisions of the Act /Rules and directions of the Supreme Court of India in the matter. The Committee has been reconstituted in March, 2005 and representatives from National Commission for Women and Department of Women and Child Development have been included in the committee. The Committee has visited number of districts in the States of Haryana, Punjab, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat and NCT of Delhi, during 2005-06.

National Support and Monitoring Cell: A 'National Support and Monitoring Ceil' with external assistance has been approved for effective implementation of the Act by appointing professionals from police, medical, law and social sciences as full time consultants is on the anvil. Initially, the Cell will focus on Punjab, Haryana, Gujarat, Chandigarh and Delhi where the problem is more intensive. The major expectation is that the cell will help in putting a mechanism in place so that actual wrong doers who are committing female foeticide/abetting female foeticide by are apprehended by the Appropriate Authorities. They are expected to network with the Appropriate Authorities / medical officers in the State and step up successful "sting operations" by the Appropriate Authorities to nab the actual wrong doers.

Sensitization of the Appropriate Authorities: The Act empowers the Appropriate Authorities for search, seizure and sealing of machines, equipments and records. Training programs and sensitization workshops have, therefore, been organized to sensitize these Appropriate Authorities on an ongoing basis on various legal issues for the effective implementation of the provisions of the Act and to remove the doubts. A handbook on the Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act, 1994 (revised edition) released on 17th February, 2003 has been made available to the Appropriate Authorities.

Sensitization of the Medical Community: Ministry of Health and Family Welfare had co-sponsored the December, 2003 issue of Journal of Indian Medical Association on the law and related issues. An appeal from the Secretary, Department of Family Welfare has also been published in this issue, requesting the doctor community to restrain from pre-natal sex determination and pre conception sex selection. The Journal has a wide circulation of about 1.2 lakh medical professionals.

State/UTs and Appropriate Authorities appointed under the Act are continuously arranging meetings with the representatives of Medical Associations like IMA, for the proper implementation of the Act.

Awareness Generation: It is, nevertheless, recognized that mere legislation is not enough to deal with this problem that has roots in social behavior and prejudices. Various activities have been undertaken to create awareness against the practice of pre-natal determination of sex and female foeticide through Radio, Television, and print media units. Workshops and seminars are also organized through Voluntary Organizations at State/regional/district/block levels to create awareness against this social evil. Cooperation has also been sought from religious/ spiritual leaders, as well as medical fraternity to curb this practice.

The situation could change only when the daughters are not treated as burden and the sons as assets and start treating daughters at par with sons. Equal opportunity for the girls in education, equal right in the property etc. will be essential to accomplish the desired objective.
