SHRI SHARAD ANANTRAO JOSHI: Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, I desire to speak because of a specific reference, that Shri Sitaram Yechury made, that this is one of the occasions where the organised labour is taking up the cause of the unorganised labour on behalf of the unorganised labour of India, particularly, those working in the agriculture sector. I would say that this class has never stood for the demands of the unorganised sector. So, this protest is specifically political and is meant for the organised sector alone.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Now we will take up the Dalmia Dadri Cement Limited (Acquisition and Transfer of Undertakings) Amendment Bill, 2006.

THE DALMIA DADRI CEMENT LIMITED (ACQUISITION AND TRANSFER OF UNDERTAKINGS) AMENDMENT BILL, 2006

 

THE MINISTER OF HEAVY INDUSTRIES AND PUBLIC ENTERPRISES (SHRI SONTOSH MOHAN DEV):

Sir, I beg to move:

That the Bill to amend the Dalmia Dadri Cement Limited

(Acquisition and Transfer of Undertakings) Act, 1981,

as passed by Lok Sabha, be taken into

consideration.

 

The question was put and the motion was adopted.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Now we shall take up clause-by-clause consideration of the Bill.

Clause 2 was added to the Bill.

Clause 1, the Enacting Formula and the Title were added to the Bill.

SHRI SANTOSH MOHAN DEV: Sir, I move:

That the Bill be passed.

The question was put and the motion was adopted.

SHRI K. CHANDRAN PILLAI: Sir, I wanted to speak on this...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: The Bill has been passed...

SHRI K. CHANDRAN PILLAI: That is a convenient answer. It is not fair...(Interruptions)

SHRI SHARAD ANANTRAO JOSHI: Sir, this Bill has been given to us only now. Even after having gone through it twice, I am not quite clear as to which are the words to be substituted and for what. Will the Minister explain?

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: The process is over. There was no speaker on this.

Now, we shall take up the Prevention of Child Marriage Bill, 2004.

(Ends)

PREVENTION OF CHILD MARRIAGE BILL, 2004

THE MINISTER OF STATE (INDEPENDENT CHARGE) OF THE MINISTRY OF WOMEN AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT (SHRIMATI RENUKA CHOWDHURY):

Sir, I move:

That the Bill to provide for the prevention of

solemnisation of child marriages and for

matters connected therewith or incidental

thereto, be taken into consideration.

Sir, if you look at the two words 'child marriage', I think they contradict each other. A child is entitled to a childhood, and marriage is to be done to an adult, one who can take the responsibility of being a wife, the responsibility of bringing another life to motherhood and the responsibilities of a society. (Continued by 1T/KS)

1t/12.40/ks-akg

SHRIMATI RENUKA CHOWDHURY (CONTD.): So, the term `child marriage' itself is an obscenity that needs to be recognized and curtailed.

Sir, the Child Marriage Restraint Act of 1929 was transferred to us in January 2006. We thought that it is important for us to be able to bring about a legislation that will actually make a difference to the status of children. Now, why is it important for us to bring about this restraint? We have questions raised by hon. Members in this august House where we still say that we have the highest infant mortality rates and high maternal mortality rate, that mothers die while giving birth. Why do mothers die while giving birth? Is it only malnutrition? Is it only anaemia? Is it only because of any of these disorders? It is also because bodies which are too young, children who are forced into motherhood, cannot possibly give births to healthy children when they themselves are under-aged, hence underdeveloped, and more often than not, under-nourished. Malnutrition and anaemia, the twin names which rule over us in most parts of our country -- including, I would like to inform you all, in some of our well-to-do schools because of lack of awareness of good nutritious practices -- deplete the levels of a human body, as a result of which young children are forced to give birth to other children. And it is the law of nature that, quite often, children don't even survive. Hence, we should be moved to put this Act in place so that we can help our infant mortality and maternal mortality rates to be contained, which means giving a chance for the girl-child to survive and to live. Early marriages also deprive the girl-child of her access to any kind of sanitation, any kind of education, any economic independence. Most of the time, when we ask parents in villages -- as all of you do who are in touch with rural India -- why they get their children married, they turn around and say, " ֮ ֮ ָ ָ פ, ו֋". And there lies the crux of why we need to bring in this preventing check, a positive check, because if you look at the status and the life of a girl-child, she is viewed as a transferable, disposable commodity, that she is left from one life of strife to another. We all know that sometimes even in educated households, very little budgeting is done for the health and welfare of the women of the household. In rural India and in most urban India also, a man will spend a hundred rupees on a bottle of local but he will not spend fifty rupees on buying a pair of glasses which will enable his wife to see better. There lies the tragedy and the dichotomy of a progressive society. On the one hand, we show growth rate of eight per cent and, on the other, you see the diminishing presence of the girl-child. India has the dubious distinction today of having killed one crore of girl children in the past twenty years of our country's Independence. This has resulted in skewed sex ratios in most of our districts. The worst part of this is that the presence of such sex discrimination is largely amongst the educated, well-to-do homes and societies where people think that children can be designer-made to match their curtains or their accessories at home. (Contd. by 1u/tdb)

TDB-HMS/1U/12.45

SHRIMATI RENUKA CHOWDHURY (CONTD.): And a girl child is viewed as negatively useful to a society, particularly to the family as a unit. When the girl is seen as socially non-productive and socially not useful at the end sentence of her lifetime for the parents, then, she is treated as a transferable commodity. She is moved away from the home and the protection of her parents or her siblings, forced into a life of adulthood, when she does not have the physiological or the psychological equipment to deal with that transition, and worse, she is not the decision-maker whether she wants to be a mother or not at that given point of time. Family planning or use of prophylactics, non-availability of condoms, lack of awareness of how to use condoms, lack of negotiability for a girl child on her sexuality or to refuse sexual access to her lawfully wedded husband, often render a girl child completely as a victim, and the victimisation continues when she gets married into a household.

Sir, we have reports in our country, and for all of us who are literate and educated, we are aware that 65 per cent of the girls are married before the age of 18 years, which means, 65 per cent of them are really physiologically, anatomically unprepared to give birth to a child. Giving birth is a major change for a human body, where different hormones and different biologies are affected. Inherited disease, thalassemia, etc., can impact on the girl who is giving birth, as well as the high percentage of undetected diabetes in our country, and other health programmes which we are targeting for these groups, are not put into place. And these mothers, 65 per cent of girl children in our country, are not prepared to be mothers and are forced into being mothers before they can say, 'jack-rabbit'. Now, given that kind of statistics, some States like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh reflect a high incidence of girl marriages below 18 years with the proportion to the total number of females married as high as 45 per cent to 55 per cent in these States. Now, some of our cultural practices, such as teej festival, etc., where all of us went unwittingly to bless the couples, and the cultural practices which we have even in the South, -- when you do kanyadaan, you put a girl in a basket and hand it over -- are really not synonymous with today's time. It is a blind practice that we do. Because in those days, children were married, hence, they were put in tokaries and given, because it was the way to transfer a child. But, today you don't have to do it. But, we eternalise these practices, and blindly continue doing them without analysing or without rectifying these issues. Now, the strong social mechanisms which exist even now and which encourage child marriage are something that all of us have to collectively put our strength together and dispel from our villages. Even with us, in political, public life, people around us, our helpers and workers, quite often come and invite us for their children's wedding. I have often quarrelled with them. There is enough evidence to show where I have threatened my follower of 20 years, when he wanted to get his daughter married as a minor, that I would put him into jail. He was very annoyed with me because he said, ֮ , ױ ִ ׳֕־ ֓ ֤ ? They have not even believed that it is possible for them to educate the child. I am also very proud to tell you one thing. I have an aloo dealer in Hyderabad, who is a Muslim minority man. His daughter wanted to study, but he refused her saying that she should get married at the earliest to get rid of her responsibility. I am very proud to tell you that today this child is an MBBS doctor. She has studied. We are working for her P.G. seat. Her mother and father are illiterate, but this girl is one day going to go and heal people across the country. (Contd. by 1w-sss)

SSS-PSV/1W/12.50

SHRIMATI RENUKA CHOWDHURY (CONTD.): I am very proud to associate with that. It has altered her life absolutely. The basic reason for this discrimination is that there is no definition to identify or recognise the status of women. Under IPC, Section ָ ֻ , ָ ֻ , it is a cognisable crime. We say that he has spoken in a way that is denigrating to the 'status' of women. So you can arrest the man. But what is the 'status' of women is what we are examining. What is the status of woman? Is she equal? Is she more? Is she less? The Constitution says that we are equal to men. But laws, legislations, social practices, superstition and ignorance have, forever, divided us. There was a time earlier when feminism meant fighting to be equal to men. But today, even we realise that feminism is not about wanting to be like men but it is to recognise the independent identity of a woman, to respect that, to embrace that and to accept that because it is in the differences of men and women that we celebrate a society and we talk of an evolution and coming forward. Disparate sex ratios, which are happening in our societies and communities, parents who indulge in female foeticides, ֯ ֲֻ֟ ? ָ ָ ֟ Ӥ ֟ Doctors have told me , ָ ֮ ֻ֟ ? ֛ , ָ ֛ ֮ ֣ פ ֋? And that is the societal thinking which is the agenda for our challenge. You have to change that. ߮ ֛ ֌ ֟ ָ ֛ , ׻֋ ։, ֮֜ ? ָ my followers come to me and say, , ֛ ֯ , ñ ו֋ ֻ ? ֛ ֯ ֋ , ֯ ֓ ֻ֋ ? ִ֮ ׻֋ ׿ , ִ ֟ As long as we see girls in the negative value, ָ ׻֋ ִõ ֮ ߅ ֕ פ ֕ ָ ִ֕ ֛ , ִ , ָ ִ֕ ֮ ֤ , ֕ פ ã֋ ִõ֋ և , ָ-ָ և ֛ , ָ bride price they cannot bring. ָ߲ ׸ָ ָ ֛ - ֮ פ So there are four men living with one woman. A father and son were married to one woman and such practices are now surfacing which will be a challenge for us to be able to legislate for a governance. Cross border polyandry; yes, but it is not recommended or a celebratory form of polyandry. It is of no choice where the woman has not been asked if she wants to have sexual access to four men. It is about negotiating her sexuality. We have also got to look at disease mapping. They will not be able to map that of an Indian DNA or a gene pool, which has evolved over 5000 years. Cross border trafficking has increased and we see sex workers coming in from other countries to meet the demand in our own country. So the matter is much more complex and one of the stumbling blocks in the protection of a girl child is child marriages. When we sanctify the marriage between a minor child and an adult or between two children, I do believe, it is the biggest obscenity that we can cast on our society. The Sharda Act or the Child Marriage Restraint Act of 1929 was brought into force 77 years ago but it acted only as a restraint. So, while we politely said 'don't do it, don't do it' there was no legal way by which you can term it as a crime whereby we could bring in some kind of a curb or control over this child marriage. (Contd. by USY/1X)

SSS-USY/AKA/1X/12.55

 

SHRIMATI RENUKA CHOWDHURY (CONTD.): It only sought to restrain the solemnising the child marriage, but not its prevention or its prohibition. We should be able to stop it and prevent it. It is better to prevent than to cure. Illiteracy and orthodox attitude, interpretation of social convenience of religions and religious practices, have taken place all over the country; and very few cases of this crime came to light. Ӿ ָ ׻ֵ ֤ ֻ֙ ֮ ָ ׿ֵ֟ , results in continuous enjoyment of societal acceptance and transition of this Act. Various growing demands from various segments of the society have come up, and, I think, as a fair and just equitable society, all of us, right-minded thinking people, must be able to come forward unhesistingly to bring in a more effective and more stringent punishment for lawbreakers. The Ministry of Law and Justice has processed the law and has undertaken consultations from all sections of the society across the country. That is why, it took such a long time to enable us to bring it. This Bill was introduced in the Rajya Sabha on 20th December, 2004 for repealing the CMRA of 1929 and replacing it with the new legislation, which we now call 'The Prevention of Child Marriage Bill, 2004'. This Bill was, of course, extensively looked at and the Parliamentary Standing Committee addressed it and submitted its report to Parliament on 29th November, 2005. The recommendations of these were further examined by a GoM, and the approval of the Cabinet had been sought for this Bill. I will very briefly touch the important features of the amendment to this new Bill. Basically, it is in two broad categories, where we prohibit the child marriage and protect and provide relief for those who are forced into this marriage. For example, a child is trafficked, ֲ ֟ ֻ֟ ׻ ߔ ֛ ֋ ֓ ֤ ߾ , I am not trafficking her. So, unless we give relief to that child under that measure, if we are not able to do it then, it is self-defeating if we are not able to do it.

So, the new clauses that we are incorporating in this Bill are: the legislation for child marriage, which has undergone a transition, and to prohibit child marriage, not only to restrain...(Interruptions) ?
