An Open House Discussion on Criminalising Marital Rape at the Faculty of Law, SGT University

An Open House Discussion on ‘Criminalising Marital Rape in India’ was organized by‘Legal Manthan’ – An Academic Association of the Students of the Faculty of Law, SGT University on 17th January at the Seminar Hall of the Faculty of Law. Three student panelists from the Faculty of Law presented their papers focusing upon the merits and demerits of criminalizing marital rape. One of the panelists pointed out that the various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) discuss the protection of women against crimes. Still, the crime against women has been increasing as pointed out by the National Crime Record Bureau recently. Further, it was argued that though marital rape is on the rise in our country,   it is not yet criminalized, because of various socio-legal reasons. The papers of the panelists were well received and provoked an intense discussion among the audience which included students and the faculty members. As marital rape is a contentious issue, it was a delight to see the active participation of the students.  The students debated for and against criminalizing marital rape. The pros and cons of the issue were deeply analyzed.

Further, the discussion brought to the fore the procedural lapses and the existing legal ambiguities. It was argued that there should be some legal remedies available to the victims of marital rape. At the same time, men should not become scapegoats because of the criminalization of marital rape. The audience suggested the various guidelines for strengthening the criminalization of marital rape. The probing questions of the students enriched the discussion as well as enhanced knowledge on the chosen theme. It was not only an informative and insightful discussion but also sensitized the students of the Faculty of Law on marital rape. It was well attended by the students and the faculty members respectively. No doubt, it was a candid and engaging discussion by the audience. Given the constructive discussion and interests shown by the students, we have planned open house discussions on contemporary socio-legal issues every fortnight at the Faculty of Law.

The Role Played by Private Universities in Dispersion of Education

Education comprises of three different aspects; elementary, secondary and higher. While elementary and secondary education is imparted at the school level, higher education is imparted at the university and college level.

Basically there are two types of education providers: public and private.  Private institutes have two types of funding that are government-aided or entirely self-funded. Public institutes are established and managed by the government. Private providers step in when the government has limited resources. Private sectors we know, operate on a profit motive, but when it comes to education private institutes operate not on a profit motive, but for the greater common good of imparting education.

Skeptics believe that private institutes lower the quality of education due to a lack of active regulatory oversight. Most people think that they levy high fees on students. While others believe that private institutes improve the quality of education due to the presence of increased competition in the market.

There are various private Universities operating in Delhi NCR region and throughout the country.  Here’s a brief analysis of why they are good centers for dispersal of education and why the public can rely upon them:-

Constitutional provisions

Education falls under the Constitution. This basically means that both center and state regulate education laws.  Determining the quality of education lies with the center. Further, states can regulate or wind up Universities


The main regulator of higher education is the United Grants Commission (UGC) and All India Council for technical education (AICTE). The professional courses are regulated by 15 professional councils.

Is it profit-driven?

The Supreme Court has interpreted that education is imparted for charitable purposes and not for profit motive. Therefore it is supernormal profits is not possible by providing education. If any kind of revenue surplus is generated by the private educational institutes, it is for educational development and expansion.


The bottom line is private institutes, have stepped in where the center has failed in providing education to the society. Though skeptics may differ, the education industry cannot solely work on the basis of profit. Private educational institutes, it would not be wrong to say, are in fact a boon for the society.

If you are searching for a good private university in Haryana and particularly in Delhi NCR region, then do consider SGT University- center for quality education.

Horticulture Will Be The Key Development Factor For Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh

In India, horticulture is growing very fast and contributing to the Indian economy with increasing exports of agriculture commodities. Horticulture is not only needed in the world but it is also a better career option for youth. Recently, Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has extended PM’s development package (PMDP) for horticulture development in India’s new Union Territories of Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh. Under the Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture, the committee has approved the extension of PMDP by three years up to March 31, 2022. The PMDP was approved in the year 2016 and its timeline ended on 31st March 2019. The Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare considered horticulture as a key factor that can contribute to the development of newly formed UTs. When we talk about Kashmir, the very first things that come to our mind are‘apple’ and ‘saffron’. The project will mainly focus on these signature crops including procurement of quality planting materials, improved rootstocks, and rejuvenation of old orchards. The extension of the package will help to generate employment opportunities for approximately 44 lakhs man-days. The horticulture growth will promote the establishment of grading, sorting, packaging units, cold storages, and fruit processing industries in the target area. The scheme is set to promote the latest technology for increasing per plant produce (PPP) by the adoption of a high-density planting system, improved plant training systems (espalier training system) and integrated nutrient management system. The government has allotted Rs. 500 crores under the scheme to these UTs for the establishment of horticulture driven development which also has approval for the establishment of solar or hybrid (electric & solar) operated cold storage facilities in Ladakh and Jammu. With the increase in crop production, the project will also increase tourism and transport development in these areas. The horticultural production surpassed total food grain production in 2015, since then it is achieving newer highs every year contributing to the nutritional and financial security of farmers and rural areas. India has unlimited capabilities in terms of Agri-climatic zones and crop biodiversity, the only step needed is to explore the opportunities and Indian government under the supervision of PM Narender Modi Ji, which has opened a new route in Ladakh, Kashmir, and Jammu.
