Let us see d judgment in its right context. Its more relevant to those boys and girls who have not married after being engaged and who have had sex.
 
Why the Firstpost defence of the Madras High Court "Sex Is Marriage" ruling is bollocks.

Always quick to appear wiser, Firstpost - the same guys who set one Lakshmi Chaudhry on me to call me sexist and then eventually agree with me on everything I said - have pretty much repeated the feat. This time with the judgement of the Madras High Court.

The Firstpost piece is here http://www.firstpost.com/india/why-the-madras-hc-judgment-on-premarital-sex-is-a-progressive-one-883961.html 

Read it and it seems to be making a point. But read it again and you'll see the writer, one Apoorva Dutt hasn't read the actual judgement, and has no clue what she is talking about. Is it yet another example of "Firstpost-saying-shit-for-pageviews"?

Sure the judgement says that live-in relationships that produce kids are the equivalent of a married relationship when it comes to paying maintenance etc. That's good and positive.

Then it goes and says that doing some mumbo-jumbo chants and rituals aren't marriage either. OK, acceptable.

But it goes further and says that any single provable act of sex is marriage. It says, and I quote "Legal rights applicable to normal wedded couples will also be applicable to couples who have had sexual relationships which are established." And a "sexual relationship" could be a single act of sex.

This is bollocks, and I could be guilty of contempt of court for saying it - and so is the ruling that, and again I quote "If after having a sexual relationship, the couple decided to separate due to difference of opinion, the ‘husband’ could not marry without getting a decree of divorce from the ‘wife’." 

This is not just wrong but plainly sexist. Note it allows the woman to marry or have sex with another man - but not the man to marry or have sex with another woman if they have made out before.

The court further says "either party to a relationship could approach a Family Court for a declaration of marital status by supplying documentary proof for a sexual relationship."

So, sure, there was a positive part of the judgement that gave children from live-in relationships the same rights as those from marriages. But then you find the writer is clueless in matters relating to law. She said "it legitimises children". No it doesn't. Because there is nothing illegal in having a child without a marriage. It has always been legal in India, it has never been illegitimate. 

Every child born in India is already fully legal, and has as much right as a citizen of the country as any other child. With two exceptions: inheritance rights and right to  maintenance. 

This judgement further sorted the inheritance and maintenance issue - but frankly that was already sorted by Katju many years ago in his landmark judgement. 

So actually this judge actually said nothing new and progressive. He further confirmed that marriage was always a social event with no legal significance whatsoever - except to clarity in matters relating to inheritance and maintenance - which we anyway got years ago. 

But the reason this judgement is regressive is that it now deems a single act of sex as equivalent of an act of marriage. As long as you have "documentary proof" of the sexual act.

So every sex video is a documentary proof of marriage. As is every day-after pill bought. As is every used condom. Or fetus aborted. Or contraceptive prescribed.

And guess what - if you have had sex before and you're a man - and it can be proven, you can't marry anyone else without the consent of your earlier partner, now called your wife, even though she may already be married to someone else.

It is a bullcrap judgement. 

It has little new to add that is progressive. 

It is being rightfully condemned. And needs to continue to be condemned. And ridiculed.

Regardless of Firstpost's strategy of generating pageviews based on seemingly contrarian but ultimately clueless posts.

Ignore them. Fight the crap judgement. 

Or at least ridicule it.

Defence minister AK Antony was formally apprised of the Tatra trucks scam as early as 2009 but he turned a blind eye. DNA detailed this scam in a series of investigative stories in July 2011.

Constitutional position of defence services.

Part XIV of the constitution deals with the "Services Under the union and the states". Under Chapter I of the same part it deals with Public Services.
Article 309 of Chapter I of the part XIV of the constitutions refers to the word "Public Services" for all services under this Part of the constitution which include defence services too. And that is reason the name of Union Public Services Commission was taken to recruit all such services by UPSC as constituted under chapter II of Part XIV. That is also the reason that in the interpretation of the word “Public Servant” the defence officers have been included.
Article 310 further classifies these public services into Defence Services, Civil Services of the Union and All India Services. It clearly keeps Defences services at par with other services.
The provision of the articles 311 onwards under chapter 1 does not apply to the defence services. As these provisions deal with more to disciplinary arrangements, logically so defence officers have not been included in these as defence services have their different sets of provisions under Armed Forces Act and Rules. And we club it with the restrictions as put by our constitution on the certain fundamental rights of the member defence forces, the broad classification of Public Services can be done in two; 1. Defence Services and 2. Civil Services clubbed with all India Services.
Now if see the constitution it throws certain facts and these are:
1. Defence services are very much part of public services as envisaged under the constitution.
2. The distinction of Public Services has been made into Defence services, Civil Services of Union and All India Services.
3. Our constitution does not mention defence officers as commissioned officers and creates a separate class. Our constitution is silent on this part. The appointment letter to defence officers are given by the President in form of Commission Parchment and same is written in the title of it. But in the text of same it doesn’t mention the word commission. Let me reiterate that the word commission has some more to do with the sovereign powers of the President. To take or pardon life. But here is an exception which highlights the meaning and sovereign powers of commission officers. Under Summary General Court Martial an officer of the rank of a Captain and above, not only can give the sentence of death but also can confirm it for its immediate execution by shooting without any reference to the president or any court of the land. In civil the death sentence is giving by not less than a Session Judge and it can only be executed once the president confirms it and that also by hanging.
4. Now for terms and conditions of the services there could be two interpretations
a. If the pay commissions are set to also decide services conditions under Article 309 and 310 than defence forces are very much part of it and shall be treated at part with Civil Services and All India Services as public services.
b. If the pay commission only takes the provisions of articles 311 onwards than defence forces are not part it and needs to be given a separate pay commission.
Considering the spirit of the constitution wherein it itself has made distinction from article 311 onwards there is a need for defence forces to have separate pay commission. What we need is that we must now push for the clear interpretation of these articles and positioning of defence forces
