Note on the Divineguma Bill

Categories:
 

Media reports in December 2012 indicated that the Divineguma Bill (referred to here as the Bill) is to be taken up for a vote by Parliament in January 2013. This note has been prepared by the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA),with the objective of raising key issues related to the Bill and their consequences, if the Bill is enacted in its present form.

CPA raised these issues in 2012, in both petitions filed in the Supreme Court challenging the Bill and in awareness raising material produced in all three languages.
