Supreme Court of India allows Passive euthanasia: What it means?

In a judgment that is considered to be historical, the Supreme Court of India on Friday, (9/3/2018) allowed a ‘living will’ termed otherwise as ‘advance directive’, made by terminally-ill patients for passive euthanasia legal, with which the court also had  prescribed strict guidelines on who can do that, when, and how.

Passive euthanasia relates to a condition where there is withdrawal of medical treatment with the deliberate intention to hasten the death of a terminally-ill patient.

Such patients can now opt for in a legal manner wherein the death occurs
because the doctors either do or do not carryout something to keep a patient alive or stop something that would keep them alive. They might include:

switching off life-support machines

disconnecting a feeding tube

not carrying out a life-extending operation

not administering life-extending drugs

A medical board would be set up to determine and carry out any ‘advance directive’, the court said.

In cases where there is no ‘advance directive’, the patient’s family member or next of friend can approach a high court to seek passive euthanasia.

From preliminary reading of the judgemental for a lay man like three points crop up:

Who will decide the constitution of the medical board? If it is going to be in the hospital where the patient is undergoing, would there be a fair decision as that involves loss of revenue (in many cases) to the hopsital. If they say no, to whom one should go for appeal?

Will approaching the High Court not prove costly to the otherwise traumatized patient/family? If the patient is in coma who would approach the court?

What is the mechanism for the courts to prevent the obtaining of such ‘living wills’ under coercion?

These are the moot points, which in course of time, the court may take up and find solutions. That’s to say these hiccups can not in any dilute the importance of this landmark judgment.














Aadhaar linking deadline may be extended

The news that the central government in principle may not be averse to extend the Aadhhar deadline to link the card to bank accounts, mobile phones, etc may sound to be a welcome news but it appears that it may be one strategy it may be adopting while from the back doors, it may be increasing the pressure on the institutions to speed it up.

First this is what the attorney general of India KK Venugopal submitted before a constitution bench led by Chief Justice, Dipak Mishra, hearing a batch of petitions against the Aadhaar law:

“We have extended the deadline in the past too. We can do it again”.

He further stated that the Centre might extend the deadline for the reason that the case is not likely to decided before 31st March 2018.

Senior counsel Shyam Divan, Arvind Datar made such a request on the ground the case is not likely to be decided before the expiry of the deadline. Datar argued that making Aadhaar mandatory is not legal and the state cannot contend that ‘one billion’ account holders in the country are to be suspected. Prior to the opening of the accounts, each customer has provided the Know Your Customer,(KYC)prior to opening of the bank account.

He pointed out a contradiction and conflict between different acts by citing one example. While Aadhaar Act confers the right to every citizen to have an unique identity number, (UIN), the Prevention of Money Laundering Act makes a citizen duty to bound to secure an Aadhaar. According to him, what is right under one Act cannot be deemed a duty under another act.

So far only three lawyers have completed their arguments and five more are yet to even open their arguments. To this the Central Government, UIDAI, the governments of Gujarat and Maharashtra would have to respond.

Incidentally, Mr. P. Chidambaram who is currently battling the fall out arising out of the arrest of his son Karthy is also slotted to argue(on Wednesday) on the ground that passing it in the Parliament as a ‘Money Bill” itself is wrong.

However, while the attorney general’s tone is conciliatory, according to a report broadcast in one of the English TV channels, stated that the authorities in the Central Government are pushing the bankers to complete this faster.

There is however no authenticity about the report.
