The Indian Constitution is the longest written constitution in the world is plagued by many loopholes and today we are looking at the Most 5 stupid Indian Laws.
5. Dance Revolution
They should really ease up on stag entries at pubs because this one can get a couple of entries in trouble. Prevention of Seditious Meetings Act, 1911 states it is illegal for more than 10 couples to dance together on a dance floor. The intent behind this is to regulate public meetings and any such event should be reported to the District Magistrate or the Commissioner of Police at least three days prior to the event. Sounds stupid and strange at the same time
4. The flying permit
In another ridiculous law, the Indian Aircraft Act of 1934 considers a kite to also be an aircraft thus making it necessary to get a permit to fly one. As is apparent, this law has never been followed and should be dealt away with immediately. Another clause requires one to have long legs to be eligible to be a pilot. Of course, intelligence and capability are secondary requirements, but all aspirants for the post better have long legs. So, if you have long legs then you have a better chance of becoming a pilot than others.
3. Land Acquisition Act
An exemplar of abuse of power is the land acquisition Act. Under this act, the government can appropriately piece of land by stating that it’s doing so in the name of public welfare. This act causes a lot of complications for the owners of the land. They don’t get paid a fair amount by the government, they’ve to relocate, the government doesn’t pay them on time, etc. This tyrannical law must be amended in a way that both the parties are equally benefited.
2. Display of Affection
The Indian Penal code prohibits obscene acts in public. You can’t say, sing or do anything obscene out in the open. Here, our law is a bit obscure! It’s not exhaustively defined what are the things or acts that can amount to obscenity. We’ll leave that for you to figure out So next time you are out and about in public with your lover or spouse and feel the need to express your love, keep it to a handshake, please, and meanwhile, if you don’t find the restroom near you feel free to use the nearest wall.
1. Indian Laws Around Drinking
The legal drinking age laws are one of the stupidest and most ridiculed laws in India as the age varies from state to state. While the legal age for drinking is 18 in places like Goa, Himachal Pradesh, UP, Sikkim, and Puducherry, it is 25 in Maharashtra. Moreover, some states are absolutely dry states with a ban on drinking for all ages. It is strange how a citizen has the right to elect the Government at 18 years of age but is not considered mature enough to decide whether he/she wants to consume alcohol or not. Another wacky Indian law around drinking is that in Delhi home delivery of alcoholic beverages is against the law, but you can have beer and wine from departmental stores to be delivered to your home. So, these were our picks for So, these were our picks for 5 Stupidest Indian Laws.
