10-Year Jail, ₹1 Crore Fine for Paper Leak: Lok Sabha Passes Bill

The government has proposed to introduce a bill in the Parliament to impose a penalty of 10 years of imprisonment and a fine of 1 crore rupees for leaking papers and cheating in government recruitment exams. This bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday (February 6). It will now be introduced in the Rajya Sabha.

If this bill becomes law, the police will have the authority to arrest offenders without a warrant for leaking papers and cheating. Offenders will not be eligible for bail, and these crimes cannot be settled through compromise.

Earlier, during the fifth day of the Parliament’s budget session, discussions on the amendments to the Jammu and Kashmir Local Elections (Municipalities and Panchayats) Bill 2024 were underway in the Lok Sabha. Concurrently, discussions were also held on the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order (Amendment) Bill 2024 and the Constitution (Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes) Orders (Amendment) Bill 2024.

At the same time, during a question-answer session in the Lok Sabha, Nityanand Rai stated that our government is consistently encouraging women. There are 41,606 women soldiers in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and Assam Rifles.

The government has not yet announced the date for the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly elections, according to National Conference leader Hasnain Masoodi. After the removal of Article 370, Jammu and Kashmir was made a union territory. The Supreme Court had set a deadline for holding elections in Jammu and Kashmir, but the government has not made any decision in this regard, which is shameful.

On the other hand, the TM Singh Roy has accused the BJP of lacking confidence in local institutions. The government should conduct elections in Jammu and Kashmir soon. The Supreme Court has strongly criticized whatever happened in the Chandigarh Mayor elections.

There was also a discussion in Parliament on the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) operations. On Tuesday, February 6th, the ED raided 10 locations, including the private secretary of Arvind Kejriwal and 10 AAP MPs. Recently, former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren was also arrested by the ED.
