CCS Dashboard#ccstalks TweetChat: ‘Minimum Qualifications to Stand for Elections: Necessary or Unconstitutional?’, 23 December 2015, 4-5pm

TweetChatThe Supreme Court recently upheld the new Haryana panchayat law. The amendments disqualify people who lack formal education, have no functioning toilet in their home and are in debt, from contesting Panchayat elections. Is this a necessary move to ensure quality governance? Or is it unconstitutional, violating the rights of voters to determine for themselves what qualities they want in a candidate?

Join us for #ccstalks on Wednesday, 23 December 2015 from 4-5pm to discuss this issue! Log in to or Twitter and follow #ccstalks. We look forward to speaking with you! For more information, contact Manasi Bose (

Viewpoint 13: RTE and Budget Private Schools: What would Gandhi think?

Liberty & Society Series 8: Education in India: Voice, Choice & IncentivesJames Tooley's research is a journey into the history of Indian education, drawing comparisons between the shutting down of indigenous schools then, on Macaulay's recommendations, and the closure of budget private schools today under the RTE, for being “not good enough”. He explores the well-intentioned policies, and their faulty premises - that people cannot be trusted to make judgements about what is better or worse for their own children; and suggests that we take a leaf out of Gandhi’s book and resist the closures, to win our educational independence.
