Deepak Vashist Primary Teacher at Municipal Corporation of Delhi Answered Sep 17
One such law fit to be called ridiculous is

有一条法律很符合荒谬这一词,那就是:

Indian Treasure Trove Act 1878

印度1878年颁布的《宝藏法案》。

It defines treasure specifically as "anything of any value hidden in the soil" and worth as little as 10 rupees.

其对宝藏的定义是哪怕只值10卢比,“被埋在地下的有价值的任何东西”。

The finder of such treasure according to this law needs to inform the most senior local official of the "nature and amount or approximate value of such treasure and the place where it was found".

根据这条法律,宝藏的发现者必须向当地最高长官汇报关于“宝藏的种类和数量、概算价值以及发现的地点”。

Also if the finder fails to hand over the booty to the government he may be fined and imprisoned for 1 year. The "share of such treasure vests in the Govt of India.

并且如果发现者不把宝藏上交给政府,那他将面临罚款和一年的监禁。因为”这些宝藏是属于印度政府的”。

It means if you find anything valuable under the earth even in land of your house or farm. It belongs to the government.

这就意味着你在地底下发现的任何值钱东西,即使是在你自己房子的所在地或农场里发现的,都是政府的所有物。

It was an archaic law by colonial British govt. Indians had no banks earlier. It was a common practice here to hide hard earned money in the form of precious metals under the earth in homes to save it from theft and for use in times of utmost necessity. The then British govt was greedy about this gold and so enacted the law. But the law is still being misused and abused by local police everywhere to hunt for people who eventually get something buried in their ancestral lands. Most of the time the police personnel themselves devour on these ancestral metals of people.

这个过时的法律是由当时的英国殖民政府所制定。早期印度并没有银行。对于那些人们辛苦赚来的由珍贵金属制成的钱币,最通常的储存方法就是把它们埋藏在自家的地下,以此来防范窃贼和以备不时之需。而英国政府垂涎这些黄金因此制定了这一法律。但这一法律现如今也被各地的警察所滥用,他们帮助人们搜寻其祖传的古老土地是否埋有宝藏。但大多数时候,这些警察却擅自私吞下了这些遗留给子孙们的古老宝藏。
