Cabinet clears India's membership in Hague Conference

The Union Cabinet today approved for India becoming a member of the Hague Conference on private international law.

New Delhi, May 3 : The Union Cabinet today approved for India becoming a member of the Hague Conference on private international law.

The Hague Conference on Private International Law is an inter-governmental organization, which works for the progressive unification of the rules of private international law by finding internationally agreed approaches to issues such as jurisdiction of courts, applicable law, and recognition and enforcement of judgements in a wide range of areas such as commercial laws, international civil procedures and matters relating to child protection, marriage and personal issues.

At present, it has 65 member states.

The issues dealt with and the conventions adopted by the Hague Conference are of great practical relevance to India in view of its large diaspora, increasing trade relations and travel abroad by Indian citizens.

As a member state, India would be entitled to participate in all the meetings and conferences. India would also have a role in deciding on the future work programme.

The Cabinet also gave the go ahead for passing the Airports Economic Regulatory Authority Bill, 2007 in the Parliament.

The AERA Bill, 2007 will enable setting up of Airports Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA), which will fix, review and approve tariff structure for aeronautical services and also will monitor pre-set performance standards at Indian airports. The Authority will not have regulation over Army and Para-military Airports.
