1. Green signal for: Frontpage

Relevance: Remember the two proposed amendments under the Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill 2010. First concerns with the share of women in the husband’s property after divorce and the second one deals with the right of an adapted child.

2. Student police cadet: Pg8

Relevance: A truly innovative idea. We surely need more community involvement in policing in order to tackle the new challenges like terrorism, maoism, increasing crime rate in metros etc.

Also know about all the components of Swaranjayanti Shahri Rozgar Yojana like USEP, UWEP, UCDN, STEP UP etc.

5. Some urban legends: Pg9

Relevance: Know the World Bank’s concept of Floor Space Index. Any thing written on the urban development these days is important 🙂
