Car manufacturers may be expected pay levy on sale of BS-III vehicles after April 1 26.3.2017 DNA: Opinion
As the April 1 deadline to switch to BS-IV compliant vehicles looms, a Supreme Court bench has said there may be a levy on the sale of old BS-III cars to compensate the government's spending on new fuel technology.  According to a report by The Times of India , the government has spent about Rs 18,000 to Rs 20,000 crore to aid oil companies produce cleaner fuel capable of meeting BS-IV emission norms. Certain carmakers while maintaining that they had already stopped the manufacture of BS-III compliant cars, said they should be allowed to sell these cars as dealers already had stock. There is no provision for dealers to return unsold inventory to manufacturers.  This comes in the light of a ban order from the Supreme Court, which restricts the sale or registration of old BS-III compliant cars after April 1.  Before the hearing, the Supreme Court had ordered the Society of Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) to produce a blueprint of the unsold inventory of BS-III compliant cars in the country. SIAM told the ...

SC bins society's plea against recall of site allotment in city 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court has dismissed a petition by 'Ex-Servicemen and Economically Weaker Section Society' against cancellation of residential plots allotted to it in Bengaluru in 1972-73. A bench of Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and U U Lalit concurred with Karnataka's Additional Advocate General Devadutt Kamat that the site in question was gomal (pasture) land, which was later notified as reserve forest. "Is it not statutorily prohibited to allot gomal land to a residential society? Normally gochar, gomal and pasture land can't be alienated," the bench told senior advocate Krishnan Venugopal, representing the society, who contended that the allotment, meant to build houses for the poor and ex-servicemen, was cancelled wrongfully. "Was any process fees paid by you for transfer of land? Was any payment made to the Revenue Department? If it was for housing purpose, the government must have taken some consideration," the bench asked the counsel. Rejecting the society's contention, the bench told the counsel, "We ...

SC examines scheme to remedy damage due to illegal mining in 3 districts 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court has refused blanket approval of the Comprehensive Environment Plan for the Mining Impact Zone (CEPMIZ) scheme, an ameliorative measure for the environmental damage wreaked by illegal mining in Ballari, Chitradurga and Tumakuru districts of Karnataka. "The entire CEPMIZ scheme need not be approved in one go and such approval may be considered and accorded in phases. The initial activity identified, namely, construction of conveyor belt system, railway sidings and railway sub-lines needs to be prioritised," a three-judge bench presided over by Justice Ranjan Gogoi said. It is only after a decision is taken on constructing those infrastructure and a noticeable headway is made, that the other ameliorative and mitigative socio-economic measures can have any relevance, the bench, also comprising Justices Prafulla C Pant and A M Khanwilkar added. The court was examining the CEPMIZ scheme, submitted by the Karnataka government as well as the Central Empowered Committee and considered the object ...

Of legends, lore & history 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Every year when the mercury soars to dizzying heights, hordes of pilgrims and oracles trudge from all over the state of Kerala to attend the annual Bharani Festival in the sprawling complex of Kurumba Bhagavathy Temple in Kodungallur. We were there to cover this folk festival which is marked by lewd songs, weird rituals, ecstatic chants, and riotous dancing of oracles and pilgrims. Attired in red, brandishing swords in the air, they run and jump, rhythmically to the chants of 'Devi Sharanam', beat themselves on the head in ecstatic fervour, often drawing blood, and go into a devotional trance. During the kavutheendal event, the oracles charge around the temple, inflicting themselves with injuries by swords amid the delirious chants three times at breakneck speed. Following them, thousands of pilgrims run around the temple precincts striking the temple rafters with sticks. The temple is then closed to the public for a week for ritual purification and cleansing. We discovered that there is much more to ...

BBMP budget spares city of fresh taxes 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
With Assembly elections slated for 2018, the BBMP toed the state government's line by focusing on welfare schemes, but did not announce new taxes in its 2017-18 budget presented on Saturday. The budget, with an outlay of Rs 9,241 crore, also lays special emphasis on horticulture, health, afforestation and education. Taxation and Finance Committee Chairperson M K Gunashekar, who tabled the budget, proposed to set up a Pouravahini Team that will oversee the implementation of the decisions taken by the council and submit a action-taken report every quarter before the council. For the first time the BBMP admitted that there are 19 lakh properties in the city and proposes to allot a unique digital identification number to all properties in the next fiscal. The Palike expects to collect Rs 3,726.25 crore as property tax in the next fiscal, though there was a major pitfall in its revenue target and achievement in the present fiscal. To achieve this goal, the Palike plans to rely upon the ongoing Total Station ...
