Foul play: Civic body burns garbage for a clean Jaipur 23.1.2018 DNA: Top News
The Jaipur Municipal Corporation(JMC) is violating the directions of the Supreme Court and the Solid Waste Handling Rules in a bid to bag the top slot in the Swachh Survekshan-2018.  The civic body is burning garbage to keep the city spick and span. However, the waste cannot be burnt under the Ministry of Environment and Forest’s Municipal Solid Waste (Management and Handling) Rules-2000. The Supreme Court has come out with an order prohibiting burning of garbage.  A smog in Delhi in the recent past had scaled up pollution levels and led to a slew of health hazards.Garbage burning increases pollution manifold.

During this campaign, garbage is collected from roads and empty plots and burnt. According to the rules, garbage should be collected and transported to the ...

SC sets aside HC order on strictures against judicial officer 20.1.2018 General News
The Supreme Court has set aside an order of the Himachal Pradesh High Court by which action was recommended against a judicial officer for granting bail to an accused within four days of rejection of his pre-arrest bail by a higher court. The high court had termed the action of the magistrate as "judicial impropriety" and "gross indiscipline" and recommended the chief justice to take appropriate action on the administrative side. It had set aside the order of magistrate and cancelled the bail plea of an accused, arrested for allegedly giving fake educational degrees to students for money. A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan said the approach of the high court was "erroneous in law" and set aside the order of single judge of the high court. "Merely, because an application for anticipatory bail preferred by the appellant was rejected, it could not be said that thereafter the magistrate was precluded from even considering the application for grant of regular ...

Loss of face awaits govt in Bellandur Lake case 19.1.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The fire on Friday at Bellanindur lake only makes matters worse for the state government with the National Green Tribunal. "We will bring it to the NGTs notice at the next hearing," said Sridhar Pabbisetty, petitioner in a case concerning the lake. On January 5 and 18, the tribunal had discussed the lakes conditions. "The government has shown no interest in protecting the lake. No short-term measure has been implemented, except one-time cleaning of the lake," he said. The authorities are only buying time and not showing results on the ground, Pabbisetty said. T V Ramachandra, member of the lake expert committee and professor at the Indian Institute of Science, said he had submitted his observations to Pabbisetty. "Lake quality has not improved. The government has no responsibility. The grass around the lake is dry and the methane just aggravated the fire. This shows that the lake is highly polluted," he said.
