RMS, aggressive and intense in constituencies like Amroha, However,to facilitate corporate growth with enlightened regulation? Among the new provisionsthe one related to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is in the limelight The bill requires large and profitable companies to spend 2 per cent of their average net profits from the previous three years in CSR-related activities According to the billa company should ideally undertake CSR activities in its area of operation A list of approved CSR activities outlined in the bill includes those aimed at building relationships and social capitaldeveloping skills through vocational trainingensuring environmental sustainability and social business projects This suggests lawmakers do not consider CSR to be purely philanthropic Interestinglythe law has only established a benchmark for CSR expenditure A company may decide not to spend or spend less than 2 per cent of its profits on CSR activities No penalty will be imposed on that company unless it fails to explain the reasons for its inability to spend 2 per cent of its net profits on CSR This is a shift in the regulatory approach It is for independent directors and investors to evaluate whether a fail and explain approach will expose the business to reputational and other risks This experiment is likely to succeedwith an increase in institutional investment in companies and the emergence of proxy advisory firms Howeversuccess will not come overnight The provisions on independent directors seem to look ahead So farindependent directorson averagehave not done anything remarkable to improve corporate governance The system has inherent weaknesses Howeverresearch shows that the presence of independent directors on boards improves corporate governance to some extent In the absence of a better alternativeindependent directors occupy a central position in corporate governance The bill aims to strengthen this institution One provision mandates a separate meeting of independent directors to review the performance of non-independent directors and the chairman and the boardas well as to evaluate the effectiveness of the board process It is unlikely that this requirement will yield results in the near future as the concept is newand independent directors often fail to protect their independence from subtle pressuresparticularly in companies with concentrated ownership Howeverin the long runthe strengthening of this institution should yield the desired result The bill has capped the tenure of independent directors to protect their independence and to ensure that new blood is periodically injected This will yield results only after a decadebecause the existing independent directors can continue to hold office for the next five yearsand with the approval of two-thirds of the shareholdersthey can continue for another five years The bill empowers the government to prescribe the appointment of at least one woman director in certain classes of companies This is in line with contemporary ideas of corporate governance The bill aims to improve audit quality Perhaps the most controversial provision is one that stipulates that auditors should be rotated Many believe that such a measure could not be included in US corporate law due to pressure from the big four audit firmsalthough regulators and investors realise the benefits An audit firm shall not hold office for more than 10 consecutive years and an individual auditor shall not hold office for more than five years in listed companies They will be eligible for re-appointment after a cooling off period of five years A National Financial Reporting Authority will be set up to oversee audit quality and take disciplinary action against erring auditors This will go a long way in improving audit quality The bill gives extensive powers to the government to frame rules under various provisions It will help bring necessary changes within the overall structure of the bill to keep the law contemporary and incorporate global best practices as they emerge It will also help revise rulesbased on the experience of implementing the bill Stillthere is a concern that this rule-making power might be abused By itselfthe bill will improve neither corporate regulation nor governance The mindset of regulators and those in charge of the governance of companies has to change to achieve the desired result All stakeholders must work towards reducing the trust deficit between investors and promoterscompanies and external stakeholdersregulators and companies It is a long and difficult processbut achievable The writer is professor and headSchool of Corporate Finance and PolicyIndian Institute of Corporate Affairs express@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Published: May 16 2015 12:17 am Related News The poser from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who asked if the unelected Rajya Sabha could overrule the elected Lok Sabha reflects the government’s frustration at the Opposition using its numbers in the Upper House to block showpiece legislation With just 63 MPs in a House with 245 members the NDA cannot force its way in the Rajya Sabha Moreover UPA floor managers have reached out to the Janata Parivar the Left and regional parties to build a rainbow coalition that routinely checks — and trips up — the government in the House Used to its comfortable majority in the Lok Sabha the government finds this irksome and says as much A combative Opposition now revels in the discomfort of the government and is in no mood to allow it to have its way There are fundamental differences in matters like the land acquisition amendments but in the case of many other pieces of legislation — for instance the goods and services tax — there is ample scope for agreement However Jaitley’s words indicate that the government is likely to stick with its combative approach rather than explore common ground with the Opposition Moreover his remark suggests that the Rajya Sabha may be assuming a role it is not mandated to play Jaitley — incidentally the leader of the Rajya Sabha — could have framed differently his apprehensions about the Opposition reducing the Upper House’s role to mere obstruction The Rajya Sabha as the House of elders including members with domain expertise is meant to look closely at legislation and if necessary advise and caution the Lower House No one expects it to be a nodding assembly To assume that a hierarchy exists between the two Houses and to insist on the superiority of the wisdom of the elected House is unlikely to fetch the NDA any friends in the Rajya Sabha The peculiar situation the Narendra Modi government finds itself in is not unique The NDA government of Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 1999 and the UPA of Manmohan Singh in 2004 lacked a majority in the Rajya Sabha The floor managers of these alliances had to build a working relationship with the Opposition to pass laws However BJP leaders buoyed by the majority the party won in the Lok Sabha seem reluctant to adopt the conciliatory language that coalitions speak out of necessity They have frequently spoken about calling a joint session of Parliament to legislate It may be wise for the party to go for a course correction and seek issue-based support from the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha The choice before the Modi government is to negotiate with the Opposition and pass laws or go into policy paralysis The latter is unlikely to help the party win elections For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News Service | Pune |

2013 12:14 am Related News The question is whether nuclear weapons have made us more secure against potential adversaries We have not had a dispassionate debate in our country about nuclear weapons: whether they have really enhanced our security or merely made us feel good about ourselveswhether they have helped in reducing our dependence and expenditure on conventional weaponsor whether the various doctrines propounded mainly by Americans during the course of the Cold Warsuch as mutually assured destructionfirst-strike capabilitysecond-strike capability (the basis of our nuclear doctrine)etc are validor serve any useful purpose for us The nuclear jargon created by strategic thinkers in the West might have made sense at the timebut the situation is not reproducible in our region America and the Soviet Union did not share a land boundarydid not have emotional territorial disputes and neither was thirsting to avenge military defeat In our regionall these factors are presentand they throw doubt on the usefulness of atomic weapons The most relevant one for the purpose of our discussion is the doctrine of second strike It says that if Pakistanfor examplewere to attack first with nuclear weaponswe would retain the capacity to absorb the shock and destructionand to retaliate in second strike (since we would be the second one to strike) and inflict unacceptable damage on Pakistan indeederase it altogether ErgoPakistan will never dare attack India But this theory has already been proved wrong The first atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima killed about 120000 people and destroyed more than half the city If a bomb of similar destructive power were to be dropped on Delhithe casualties would be 10 times greaterconsidering the density of population and the nature of the habitation Are we seriously to believe thatin the wake of such massive destructionthe governmentirrespective of its compositioncould retain the cohesionthe nervethe command and control chainno matter how convincing it might look on paperto actually launch a counter nuclear attack Where is the guarantee that the initial strike by Pakistan would not destroy the governing structures and that there might not be anyone left to take and pass on the necessary orders We wouldof coursebe able to retain many of our nukessince they would have been dispersed across the country and some of them would be deployed underwater in submarines Our nuclear theorists would argue that that is precisely the point Since both countries would realise that the other side would have saved some of its nukes from the initial strike by the other sidethere wouldin factbe no nuclear exchange In other wordsnuclear weapons are meant never to be used; they are weapons of dissuasion or deterrence and are meant to guarantee that there would be a permanent no-war situation Their only purpose is to deter any large-scale hostilities; if they have ever to be usedwhatever the circumstancesthe rationale for having them would have been disastrously defeated There is no way to prove or disprove the deterrent theory But there are more examples of the deterrence theory not working ever since the nuclear era began In a slim volume titled Five Myths About Nuclear Weaponsauthor Ward Wilson makes a most credible case to demolish the mythnurtured by both the Americans and the Japanese for their respective reasonsthat Hiroshima forced Japan to surrender unconditionally Constraints of space do not permit elaboration of his argumentbut his short point is that destructionirrespective of its magnitudedoes not cause defeat; it was not Hiroshima or Nagasaki but the Soviet declaration of war against Japan on August 8 that compelled Japan to surrender An interesting example of the failure of deterrence is the one most cited as its greatest successnamelythe Cuban Missile Crisis of October1962 John F Kennedy knew that his actions might provoke the Sovietsat some stageto use nuclear missiles Yet he went ahead with the ultimatum In other wordsKennedy did not let the probability of the Soviets launching their nuclear arsenal deter him There is evidence that he did take that into consideration but went ahead nevertheless People might argue about the relevance of the Cuban Missile Crisis for our regionbut the subcontinent offers a conclusive case against the doctrine of deterrence Deterrence worked in our case for just over a year from 1998 to 1999 Pakistan indulged in the Kargil adventure withoutit would appeargiving the slightest thought to the fact that India had nuclear weapons Deterrence failedutterly If at all it workedit is Pakistani nukes that restrained us from using our conventional superiority to drive away the invaders We were deterred by Pakistans nukes We earned perhaps well meaning but meaningless appreciation for showing restraintbut in the process lost many of our young officers That is what deterrence has done in our caseremoved the advantage that our conventional superiority gave us We do not yet have the military-industrial complexes that former US President Dwight D Eisenhower spoke about in the 1950s But we do have a strong scientific community justly proud of its accomplishments in the nuclear and missile fields The whole nation is proud of their achievements Is it possible that it is our scientists who are the main drivers of our programmes in these areas It is not unthinkable If DRDO or DAE proposes some new projectit would be difficult for the government to deny itsince it would be accused of denying scientific progressparticularly if some other country develops similar weapons This happens in all countries It might well be asked: why rake this up now What is the point We need this debatekeeping aside ethical issuessuch as the morality of nuclear weapons Citizens have to be educated and given an opportunity to air their views on a matter of this import India and Pakistan and China have been busy building up their nuclear arsenals Our doctrine speaks of credible minimum deterrent.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA outside the offices of Sen Rob Portman R-Ohio (Source: AP Photo) Related News President Donald Trump on Tuesday began dismantling Barack Obama’s program protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children declaring he loves the “dreamers” who could face deportation but insisting it’s up to Congress not him to address their plight Trump didn’t specify what he wanted done essentially sending a six-month time bomb to his fellow Republicans in Congress who have no consensus on how to defuse it On Twitter Tuesday night he wrote: “Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do) If they can’t I will revisit this issue” The president tried to have it both ways with his compromise plan: fulfilling his campaign promise to eliminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA while at the same time showing compassion for those who would lose deportation protection and the ability to work legally in the US New applications will be rejected and the program will be formally rescinded but the administration will continue to renew existing two-year work permits for the next six months giving Congress time to act “I have a love for these people and hopefully now Congress will be able to help them and do it properly” Trump told reporters Yet at the same time the White House distributed talking points to members of Congress that included a dark warning: “The Department of Homeland Security urges DACA recipients to use the time remaining on their work authorizations to prepare for and arrange their departure from the United States” Although Trump’s announcement had been anticipated in recent days it still left young people covered by the DACA program reeling “You just feel like you are empty” said a sobbing Paola Martinez 23 who came to the US from Colombia and recently graduated with a civil engineering degree from Florida International University “I honestly can’t even process it right now” said Karen Marin an immigrant from Mexico who was in a physics class at Bronx Community College when the news broke “I’m still trying to get myself together” Their predicament now shifts to Congress which has repeatedly tried _ and failed _ to pass immigration legislation White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president would look to Congress to pass a “responsible immigration reform package” with money to control the border with Mexico and better protect American workers’ jobs _ along with protecting “dreamers” Sen John Cornyn of Texas the No 2 Senate Republican said if Trump truly wants a comprehensive immigration reform package including a solution for the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally he’s certain to be disappointed Congress tried that and failed in 2013 and GOP leaders immediately ruled it out Tuesday “Guaranteed failure” Cornyn said If the goal is a more incremental package that combines a solution for the “dreamers” with steps such as visa reforms and enhanced border security “there may be a deal to be had” Cornyn said Sanders’ blunt warning to lawmakers skeptical they can come up with a plan: “If they can’t then they should get out of the way and let somebody else take their job that can actually get something done” The DACA program was created by former President Obama by executive action in 2012 when it became clear Congress would not act to address the young immigrants’ plight in legislation that was dubbed the “Dream Act” Trump ran his campaign as an immigration-hard liner labeling DACA as illegal “amnesty” and pledging to repeal it immediately But he shifted his approach after the election expressing sympathy for the “dreamers” many of whom were brought to the US by their parents when they were very young and have no memories of the counties where they were born Trump’s aides painted his move to gradually phase out the program as the best of bad options: State officials had threatened a lawsuit if he did not act by Tuesday to repeal the program which has given nearly 800000 young immigrants a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the US in the form of two-year renewable work permits “In effect I am not going to just cut DACA off but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act” Trump said He said he was not in favor of punishing children for the actions of their parents but he added “Young Americans have dreams too” Lawmakers were trickling back to the Capitol Tuesday from a summer recess and already are confronting a daunting to-do list including a relief package for Hurricane Harvey victims and a pressing need to raise the federal borrowing limit Some GOP lawmakers and aides are discussing the possibility of a bipartisan immigration package including a solution for the dreamers money for border security and enforcement and perhaps other items like changes to some visa programs A stand-alone bill addressing just the “dreamers” seems unlikely to pass the House given the firm stance of many conservatives And it’s unclear whether Trump would sign it anyway House Speaker Paul Ryan said he hoped the “House and Senate with the president’s leadership will be able to find consensus on a permanent legislative solution that includes ensuring that those who have done nothing wrong can still contribute as a valued part of this great country” Under the phase-out plan announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions the Department of Homeland Security was halting acceptance of new applications under DACA as of Tuesday People with permits set to expire between now and March 5 2018 will be able to re-apply as long as their applications are submitted by Oct 5 Existing permits will remain in effect and applications already in the pipeline will be processed That means the earliest that dreamers would begin to lose protections under the program would be next March Trump’s action nonetheless drew swift criticism from immigration advocates Democratic lawmakers and business and religious leaders who had urged Trump to spare the program Obama slammed the decision as “wrong” “self-defeating” and “cruel” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called it “a deeply shameful act of political cowardice and a despicable assault on innocent young people in communities across America” Some Republicans objected too Sen John McCain of Arizona said Trump was taking “the wrong approach” and he added: “The federal government has a responsibility to defend and secure our borders but we must do so in a way that upholds all that is decent and exceptional about our nation” One bill addressing the issue that has

British French Germany Russian and Chinese counterparts that they were returning to Tehran due to the death of President Hassan Rouhani’s 90-year-old mother on Friday Tehran’s delegation checked out of the hotel and headed to the airport All sides agreed a resumption late next week was likely Prior to the Iranian departure US Secretary of State John Kerry Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation chief Ali Akbar Salehi held another series of meetings to break the impasse In addition technical and political experts from the parties have been gathering daily to discuss options that could form the basis of an agreement under which Iran would accept curbs on sensitive nuclear work for at least a decade and sanctions on it would be gradually eased There was no breakthrough this week Disagreements arose among the six powers with France insisting on a longer period of restrictions on Iran’s nuclear work It also opposed the idea of suspending some UN sanctions relatively quickly if a deal is struck Iran wants all UN sanctions including those targeting its nuclear programme to be lifted immediately "They insist they have to go immediately No way It is out of the question" said a senior European negotiator echoing concerns raised by the French Zarif said the talks had reached a "very crucial point" and progress had been made this week He also suggested the six powers needed to reach a unified position "Given that Americans had officially said that further internal coordination meetings needed among the (six) members the talks were ended and will resume next week in Lausanne" Iran’s ISNA news agency quoted Zarif as saying Kerry said they made good progress adding: "We’ll be back next week" Russia’s chief negotiator Sergei Ryabkov told Reuters he agreed wholeheartedly with Kerry’s assessment During that meeting Kerry expressed condolences to the delegation for the passing of Rouhani’s mother and greetings for the Iranian new year holiday Norouz which begins on Saturday US President Barack Obama prepared a video message to Iran’s people and leaders on Thursday saying this year represented the "best opportunity in decades" to improve ties between their two countries But differences in the nuclear talks remained he said Western and Iranian officials have said that the sides are very far apart though all delegations want a deal "The alternatives to a negotiated agreement are not very pleasant" a Western official told Reuters "No one wants to give up We all want and need this deal" But US and European officials say they only want a solid agreement that ensures Iran will not be able to quickly build an atomic weapon Tehran denies harbouring nuclear weapons ambitions POLITICAL FRAMEWORK The European ministers and Kerry plan to meet in London on Saturday before the end-March deadline for a political framework agreement and a full nuclear deal by June 30 "For us the deadline is June 30" the senior European official said The London meeting is intended to bridge differences among the Americans and Europeans Officials close to the talks have expressed concerns that the French might block a deal Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said the talks would resume on Wednesday This week’s re-election of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu a fierce opponent of engagement with Iran and critic of a possible nuclear deal made clear that the pressure on the United States would not let up Pressure from the US Congress is also driving the pace of negotiations Obama bought some time on Thursday after US Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed to delay until April 14 the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s vote on legislation that would force Obama to submit any agreement with Iran for Congress’ approval Obama has said a nuclear deal does not need Congressional approval and said he would veto any proposals for new US sanctions A further meeting of foreign ministers from the Western powers this weekend will demonstrate unity in the face of the deadlock and give ministers the opportunity to coordinate a source close to the talks said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Kerry the talks "must not fall short for lack of a final effort" China’s Foreign Ministry said after the two spoke on the telephone Russian news agency Interfax reported that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Kerry agreed that an acceptable solution to the standoff must be found as soon as possible The biggest sticking point Western officials said remains Iran’s demands to have no limits on research and development of advanced centrifuges machines that purify uranium for use in nuclear reactors or if very highly enriched in weapons Another is the lifting of sanctions Iran wants all United Nations sanctions and the most crippling US and European Union restrictions on Tehran’s energy and financial sectors lifted immediately after a deal is agreed A further area of disagreement is the duration of a deal Obama has said restrictions on Iranian nuclear work should be in place for at least 10 years US negotiators are pushing to make it longer than that while France wants it to last for at least 15 years with another decade of intense UN monitoring of Iranian nuclear sites There are a few areas of tentative agreement including that Iran could operation around 6000 early generation centrifuges But officials close to the talks dismissed reports of a tentative deal saying they were very far from circulating anything remotely resembling a draft accord

radically changes lives Significantly he was not only speaking the language of growth brands and business value which defines the current discourse Rather he was also referring to ideas technologies inventions and innovations which define quality of life and have powered the rise of civilisation They range from cooking which gave humans access to wider nutritional possibilities to the internet which began as a defence communications technology and is now so deeply embedded in our lives that a section of humanity wants to wear it But that is precisely the point The US government appreciated

favour career-specific skills over creativity Its approach remains colonial Two centuries ago the colonial enterprise required standardised workers in industrial quantities who could be plugged in anywhere in the world and be expected to start playing However such workers cannot be expected to be innovative and are a losing proposition today when value lies in individual creativity rather than the ability to fall in line in an orderly fashion While the prime minister’s focus on skilling is welcome since it addresses a human resource issue the government must also think about the huge
