Plea in HC to fix graduation as minimum qualification to fight civic polls 14.4.2018 General News
A petition was filed in the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court seeking fixing graduation as the minimum educational qualification for people contesting local body elections in Tamil Nadu. When the plea came up before the court, justices C T Selvam and A M Basheer Ahmed yesterday ordered issuance of notice to the state government and posted the matter for further hearing next week. The petitioners, all students of law, submitted that educational qualification had to be fixed for those contesting the civic elections. In states such as Haryana, Rajasthan and Bihar, a minimum qualification had been fixed for the local body representatives, they submitted. The state administration had been modernised with the introduction of computers, the petitioners said, adding several schemes, undertaken by the councillors, could not be implemented effectively because they were not educationally qualified. At least, a degree should be fixed as a minimum qualification, they said.

HC rejects Indian Bank plea over sale of granite blocks of PRP Export 24.3.2018 General News
The Madras High Court has dismissed a petition by public sector Indian Bank seeking permission to conduct a public auction to sell granite blocks of Madurai based PRP Exports, which the exporter had pledged as collateral towards credits and loans granted to it. When the petition came up recently, a bench of justices T S Sivagnanam and G Jayachandran held that the sale cannot be permitted when granite worth Rs 132 crore had already been seized by respective Investigating Officers probing over 52 criminal cases pending against the exporter. The bank submitted that the materials pledged with them are granite blocks, slabs, finished goods and others, which could be identified and valuation could be done. The properties could be photographed and brought for sale to recover the loan provided to the exporter, it said. It argued that if the goods were left exposed to sun and rain, its value was bound to deplete, which would ultimately cause loss to the state exchequer. To this, the Additional

The Madras High Court has wound up the one-man commission appointed by it to probe into illegal granite mining activities in Madurai. A division bench of Justices T S Sivagnanam and G Jayachandran passed an order yesterday winding up the commission headed by IAS officer U Sagayam.
