HC directs CBSE to file counter on plea over NEET exam centres 26.4.2018 General News
The Madras High Court today directed the CBSE to file its counter by tomorrow on a petition seeking re-allotment of the NEET examination centres for candidates from Tamil Nadu, who were assigned centres outside the state. A Division Bench of Justices Huluvadi G Ramesh and M Dhandapani gave the direction when a PIL, filed by S Kalimuthu Mylavan, an advocate, came up for hearing. Senior counsel R Thyagarajan, appearing for the petitioner, submitted that the candidates had chosen three centres of their choice in their state of residence. However, those hailing from the southern districts of Tamil Nadu were allotted centres like Ernakulam in neighbouring Kerala and even in Rajasthan, he contended. The petitioner submitted that candidates who applied from Tamil Nadu were allotted the NEET examination centres in other states and not according to their choice within the state as mentioned in their applications. The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) is scheduled to be held across

PAN-Aadhaar linkage does not help curb scams: Lawyer to SC 26.4.2018 General News
A lawyer today opposed the seeding of Aadhaar with the Permanent Account Number (PAN) for income tax in the Supreme Court, saying in no way does it help in preventing financial frauds or curb black money. Arguing before a five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, which is hearing a clutch of petitions challenging Aadhaar and its enabling 2016 law, the lawyer referred to various recent financial frauds including the Nirav Modi scam and said none of these could have been avoided by using PAN-Aadhaar linkage. "Firstly, giant corporates, rather than individual players, have been the main actors in these scams. Secondly, black money is widely known to be stored by the corrupt in foreign banks which are beyond the reach of Aadhaar," lawyer Gopal Sankaranarayanan, representing NGO 'Centre for Civil Society', said. However, the Supreme Court did not agree with his submission that Aadhaar was voluntary and said if a person wanted to avail subsidy benefits, then he or ..

German authorities say they have arrested a German-Polish dual citizen accused of fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan. Federal prosecutors said the 36-year-old, identified only as Thomas K. in line with German privacy rules, was arrested on Wednesday on his arrival at Frankfurt airport after Afghan authorities handed him over.

What is holding up Justice Joseph's appt to SC, asks Chidambaram 26.4.2018 General News
Wondering what was holding up the appointment of Justice K M Joseph to the Supreme Court, Congress leader P Chidambaram today asked whether it was his state, religion or the judgement that he delivered in the Uttarakhand case. He also asked whether the Modi government was above the law as the recommendation of the Supreme Court collegium was binding on the appointment of judges. "What is holding up Justice K M Joseph's appointment? His State or his religion or his judgement in the Uttarakhand case? "As the law stands now, the recommendation of the SC collegium is final and binding in the appointment of judges. Is the Modi government above the law?," he said in a series of tweets.

Dealing a major blow to Modi government, a bench headed by Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice K M Joseph in 2016 had quashed the ...
