THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1948 India to Abandon Its Caste System Constitution Drafted After Pattern of The United States By Jamci Mlch»les (Unllfd Press Stuff Cnrrranondrnt) NEW DELHI. Feb. 26 IVPt— The newborn Dominion of India pledged itself today to wi[>e out the tradition of the untouchable taste and raise GO.000,000 Hindus to the level where they may look upon and m!n> file with tlie rest of the country's people A draft of the proposed constltu ••ion for Hindu India unveiled by ~ihe Constituent Assembly, promises to free the untouchables from the stigma which has condemned them and their children to doing the same menial work of their forefathers. Actions by other Hindus forcing i untouchables to observe the penalties of their low estate—to accept the trade of their father, marry within the caste and pay obeisance to the higher caste—will be punished by law. Follows I". S. Selup The constitution, which needs only the final approval of the assembly, proclaims India a "soverign independent republic." It commits tlte eovcrntnent to rescue India's 330,000,000 people from poverty but leaves undecided the question of India's continued membership In the British commonwealth. India's slr-e and complexity made the makers of India's constitution give up the idea of a centralized government anil follow the American example of a union of states. All powers not specified for the central government will be reserved by state and provincial governments. The 350-page draft waa prepared by a committee of seven of India's star legalists headed by Columbia University Graduate Dr. fl. R. Am- bedkar, minister of law. It is the product of nearly a year's work along lines laid down earlier by the assembly which also is fun- ctionlngr »s India's parliament. Highlights of the constitution: A bill of fundamental rights u- ring "justice liberty, equality and fraternity" for all Indiana regardless of caste, race, religion or sex. It promises protection of religious minorities in a state predominantly Hindu, giving a direct rebuff to Hindu extremists who fought Mohandas K. Gandhi. President To Serre Five Years Provision for « president as chief executive, chosen by an electorial college of members of the lower House of Parliament. The president, to serve for five years, can serve two terms but is barred from a third term. The president is commander of the armed forces and has the power lo dissolve parliament and dismiss the premier and cabinet. However, there is no clearly defined division of powers between the president and premier. Parliament consists of an neper house known as the council of states wjth 250 members and * lower house called the House of the People with 500 members. The constitution binds the new government to provide a. livelihood «|J>r all Indians and Improve a lot of the masses "within 1U economic capacity."
