The Report has tracked the the progress states have made in capacitating their justice delivery structures to effectively deliver services to all, and has taken account of the latest statistics and situations as they existed prior to March 2020. It has brought together statistics on the four pillars of Justice delivery : Police, Judiciary, Prisons and Legal Aid. The Report has categorised the States into Large and Mid-sized states which have a population of over one crore each, and Small States, which have a population of less than one crore each. In terms of Justice delivery, Maharashtra has been ranked at the top of the 18 Large and Mid-sized states followed by Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Punjab and Kerala. Among the Small States Tripura has ranked at the top, followed by Sikkim and GoaIn terms of Prisons in the States, Rajasthan is on the top position in the Large states due to better budget utilisation, reduction in the overcrowding in prisons, and more officers, cadre and women staff. Himachal Pradesh showing great improvement has gone from Rank 6th last year to Rank 1st this year in the Small states, due to better utilisation of the budget, no medical officer vacancy and trained prison staff.Karnataka has been found to be the only State to meet SC, ST and OBC diversity quota for officers, and has therefore been ranked Number 1 in terms of Police amongst the Large and Mid-size States. Himachal Pradesh, with its increasing police budget and more women in Police has been declared Rank 1 in the Small states.Tamil Nadu has been declared as the top Large and Mid-sized State, and Sikkim as the top Small State, as far as the Judiciary is concerned. Chhattisgarh has shown a major growth in its Judiciary ranking going from Rank 12th to Rank 4th with more Courtrooms, more High Court Judges, and reduction in the number of pending cases in subordinate Courts. Contrary to this, West Bengal has shown a big drop owing to its lowest national spend, fewer number of High Court Judges and having most number of cases pending for over 5 years in the Subordinate Courts.While its been found that Women comprise only 29% of judges in India, their participation has increased from 7% in 2017 to upto 10% now in Police and from 10% to upto 13% in Prisons. In the last 25 years, since 1995, only 1.5 crore people have received legal aid, though 80% of the country’s population is entitled to.The Report has noted that the per capita spend on Legal Aid has increased to Rs. 1.05 (2019-20) from 75p (2017-2018). There has not been a single large and mid-sized state whose increase in spends on Police, Prison and Judiciary exceeded the increase in overall state spend that occurred in 2014-2018.The average spend per prisoner has increased by nearly 45% with Andhra Pradesh recording the highest annual spend on a prisoner and Meghalaya spending the least.The India Justice Report (IJR) is an initiative of Tata Trusts in collaboration with Centre for Social Justice, Common Cause, Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, DAKSH, TISS–Prayas, Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy and How India Lives.According to Supreme Court’s Former Justice Madan B. Lokur “While ranking states, the Report does not play up one state against another—it merely highlights the strengths and weaknesses of each pillar in each state thereby encouraging internal assessments for introducing positive changes in the delivery of justice. The Report fosters competition between states but more importantly, places the state in competition with itself to provide its people with the best possible justice delivery.”The Report is a result of rigorous quantitative research that analyses all the Pillars through the prism of budgets, human resources, personnel workload, diversity, infrastructure and trends against the state’s own declared standards and benchmarks. It assesses how all the 29 states and 7 UTs have capacitated themselves and, out of them, ranks the 18 Large and Mid-sized states and 7 small-sized states introducing a spirit of competitiveness.Click Here To Download Report[Read Report]Next Story
By Dialogo July 23, 2012 (Continued from Part I) Many attempts have been made to define the meaning of the concept of Information Operations (IO); they can be understood as the use of a series of tools to manage one’s own information and that of one’s adversary, with the objective of identifying and revealing the enemy’s stratagems. This is done with the aim of developing information strategies that can strengthen the institution’s image and using them to confront 4th Generation Warfare; in this scenario, they become a tool that can transform society’s perceptions and defeat the enemy internally, through an appropriate planning process. U.S. Doctrine Joint Publication 3-13 of 2006 on IO, published by the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard, covers a series of capabilities for their implementation and the achievement of the objectives proposed. Fundamental Capabilities: understood as the means to influence the adversary and make it possible to have a direct impact on his decision-making capability. They are Psychological Operations, Digital Network Operations, Military Deception, Security Operations, and Third-Party Validators. Support Capabilities: those capabilities that directly or indirectly form part of the information environment and contribute to carrying out IO. Ideally, they should be coordinated with the fundamental capabilities in order to achieve the goal most effectively. For Colombia these capabilities are Physical Security and Integrated Action Tools. Related Capabilities: defined as those capabilities that make a significant contribution to the conduct of IO and should be coordinated with the fundamental and support capabilities. As related capabilities, they are not necessarily committed to IO. They are Civil-Military Relations, Government Affairs, and Public Diplomacy. Colombian Doctrine According to the doctrine of Integrated Action, Information Operations rely on five primary capabilities: Psychological Operations, Electronic Warfare, Digital Network Operations, Military Deception, and Security Operations. Support Capabilities: Information Assurance and Logistical Tools (such as combat cameras, loudspeakers, broadcasters, etc.). Related Capabilities: Civil-Military Relations (legally known today as Development Support Campaigns), Civil Affairs, and Public Diplomacy. In addition, and in accordance with Joint Publication 3-13, Intelligence support is decisive in conducting effective IO. This is an element that cuts across multiple areas, because it facilitates obtaining relevant and timely information on the physical characteristics of the environment (population, places, the adversary’s informational capabilities), as well as making it possible to identify characteristics related to the origin of the data and the existence of diffusion, transmission, processing, and storage networks. Likewise, the information environment’s cognitive characteristics, understood as its psychological, cultural, and behavioral characteristics, the flow of information, and its interpretation by individuals and groups, are identified through intelligence. In this way, IO becomes a raw material that cuts across multiple areas in order to successfully neutralize the enemy and undermine his theory of the fight. Colombia and its Military have the capabilities and elements to strengthen their implementation, and as a consequence, the work carried out daily by the Army in this field becomes a way to directly attack the enemy’s message and win the hearts and minds of the Colombian people.
