INTERNATIONAL

International Week of Solidarity with the Peoples of Non-Self-Governing Territories

The United Nations is celebrating the “International Week of Solidarity with the Peoples of Non-Self-Governing Territories” from May 25 to 31, 2021.

A Non-Self-Governing Territory is one where “people have not attained a full measure of self-government,” according to the UN Charter.

In 1946, UN Member States identified a number of non-self-governing territories under their administration and placed them on the UN list.

The country that administers Non-Self-Governing Territories is called the administering powers.

However, due to the decolonization process, some territories were removed from the list.

Government Clarification Regarding Issues with Whatsapp

The Indian government has stated that it recognises the right to privacy as a fundamental right and is committed to providing it to Indian citizens and at the same time it is also committed to maintaining law and order as well as national security.

Highlights:

The Information and Technology (IT) Minister stated that “none of the measures proposed by India will have any impact on the normal functioning of WhatsApp in any way whatsoever, and there will be no impact on ordinary users.”

 According to the clarification, the right to privacy, like all fundamental rights, is not absolute and is subject to reasonable limitations.

 It stated that the requirements in the Intermediary Guidelines pertaining to the first source of information are an example of a reasonable restriction.

 

Hallmarking of Gold Jewellery in India

Gold jewellery hallmarking will start on June 15th. Due to the Covid pandemic, this date has been pushed back even further to January 15, 2021.

Mandatory hallmarking of gold jewellery/artefacts was scheduled to begin on January 15, 2020, but was pushed back to June 1, 2021, in order to clear out old stock of unhallmarked jewellery.

 Jewellers who sell gold jewellery and artefacts will be required to register with the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and sell only hallmarked gold jewellery and artefacts.

 The goal of making hallmarking mandatory is to ensure that consumers are not cheated when purchasing gold ornaments and receive the purity indicated on the ornaments.
