How to improve implementation of RTE 25% reservation?

25% reservation under RTE aims at inclusion of the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in private education system. Numerous studies suggest that the implementation has been ineffective. Is 25% Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) quota under RTE an effective policy intervention? If yes, shouldn't the govt. fund students rather than schools to promote choice and accountability?

Public sector banks have been the largest owner of the NPAs, why?

"Twenty-nine state-owned banks wrote off a total of Rs 1.14 lakh crore of bad debts between financial years 2013 and 2015, much more than they had done in the preceding nine years,” according to a newspaper report. Can private sector banks help the poor or do we need public sector banks? If Public sector banks exist, should we not ponder upon the policies that govern them presently?

Should right to free speech be absolute?

As current affairs unfold with regards to Kanhaiya Kumar’s sedition charges, and Umar Khalid’s persecution, there is no better time to debate the moral limits of #freespeech. This complicated issue becomes even more delicate when we examine it against the backdrop of our volatile society.

Is India ready to do away with subsidies?

As we move into the budget session, we are asking: Are we as a country ready to give up subsidies? Are there more efficient ways to provide economic support to the poor? Or are subsidies a necessity for them to lead a quality life?
