26 NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL REPEAL LAW DAY
The Repeal Laws Project, started in 2014, was a collaborative citizen initiative taken by Centre for Civil Society, along with National Institute of Public Finance and Policy and Vidhi Legal Policy Centre, where we identified 100 laws that were obsolete, redundant and/ or materially impeding the lives of citizens, entrepreneurs, and the government. In addition to this, from 2016, CCS has actively campaigned to acknowledge 26 November (also the Constitution Day) as the National Repeal Law Day.
In our continuing efforts to trim away the archaic laws that plague the current judicial framework, we are calling for participation from all our supporters. This National Repeal Law Day, do tweet to us with suggestions for #lawswithflaws!

Touted as a "bold and courageous" step, the most expensive bank bailout in the nation's history follows a long tradition of capital infusion into sick PSBs over the past decade (with no results to show). But is this the much-desired remedy that diagnoses the maladies of the banking sector today?
More importantly, should taxpayer money have to compensate for institutional failures and unaccountable bureaucracy?
