Need For Legislation

(p.xxv) 3 The Lobbyists*

A.G. Noorani

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the need to regulate lobbying in India. It discusses the case of the United States, where senators and Congressmen hold themselves out as guns for hire to both domestic interests and foreign governments, in order to cope with the increasing expense of election campaigns. The chapter suggests that before the situation in India deteriorates and acquires American proportions, why not borrow a leaf from that country and trim it to suit India's needs? It describes laws such as the Regulation of Lobbying Act, 1946, which has provided for registration of lobbyists but was confined to lobbying in respect of legislation; and the Lobbying Disclosure Act, 1995 which covers the making and administration of policy, contract or loan, as well as legislation.

Keywords:   Indian, lobbying, regulation, United States, Regulation of Lobbying Act 1946, Lobbying Disclosure Act 1995
