New Delhi: Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily said on Friday that the object of the 93rd Constitution amendment was to enable the State government to bring in legislation relating to educational institutions and put an end to collection of capitation fees.
The Minister, speaking on the sidelines of a function to mark the release of his book, said most of the State governments unfortunately were only favouring private managements.
On the alleged scam reported in an English daily involving judges of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Mr. Moily said: “The Justice department has not received any report from the office of the Chief Justice of India. There is a procedure for transfer, impeachment or taking action under the Judges Inquiry Act.”
He said the judicial reforms proposed by his Ministry for the 100 days would be ready within a week.
Mr. Moily’s book “Unleashing India: A roadmap for Agrarian Wealth Creation” was released by Deputy chairman of the Planning Commission Montek Singh Ahluwalia.
The book is the first volume in a continuing series on India’s social and economic development. It is a detailed study of the Indian agriculture from a micro and macro perspective. It examines the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in India’s agriculture and provides a comprehensive economic agenda that can unleash its productive potential. Mr. Moily said that he would bring out four more volumes of the book in the near future.
He said India had enough potential and it was time to utilise it for productive purposes.
The Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor and the former Chairman of ISRO and Rajya Sabha MP K. Kasturirangan were among those who offered felicitations to Mr. Moily.
