Justice for All: No MRP on bottled water in hotels - A retrograde step 18.12.2017
A chain of restaurants in Chennai displayed a board "prohibiting" discussions on politics, business and real estate. While I was initially unsure of what was lost on the management - 2017 or Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution on free speech, I later gathered that it was to prevent property brokers and small traders from ordering just a coffee and using the restaurant for hours on end for their business deals. If the Supreme Court's recent judgment giving hotels and restaurants a carte blanche to price bottled water as they please, above the maximum retail price (MRP) is seen in a similar context, the justification, from a hotel's standpoint, may be clear.  In its order, much to the dismay of consumer activists, the apex court in Federation Of Hotels & Restaurant Associations of India Vs Union of India held that Section 36 of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009 that prescribed a fine of upto a lakh or a one year jail term for not conforming to the declaration on the package, in ...

Telangana: Mission Bhagiratha trial run soon 15.12.2017

Khammam: The state government wants to start trial run for Mission Bhagiratha in December at any cost though there is 30 per cent of the work pending. The trial run could help detect errors in the mission. The trial run will be organised in Palair and Wyra segments from the three segments in Bhadradri-Kothagudem and Khammam districts. Laying of pipelines in Palair and Wyra was completed while work of overhead tanks was going on. About 519 overhead tanks have been sanctioned in Khammam district of which 450 were completed. Work is very slow in Kothagudem district with only 412 tanks built out of 752. All the rural water supply staff working in 23 drinking water schemes in the two districts have been shifted to Mission Bhagiratha.

Tribune News Service Ropar, December 14 Drinking water supply to residents of 45 villages in the Nurpur Bedi block remains a distant dream even as a project in this regard started in November 2013. After completion of nearly 65 per cent of work, the contractor has stopped the work alleging that the government has failed to reimburse more than Rs 3 crore against the work already done. It was five years ago in 2012 when local resident and RTI activist Dinesh Chadha got information that drinking water from 18 supply schemes in the area being supplied to 45 villages was not fit as alkalinity, turbidity and iron was more than the required proportion. He filed a public interest litigation in the Punjab and Haryana High Court and the state government submitted an affidavit stating that a scheme for supply of treated canal water from water treatment plant at Kiratpur Sahib for the affected villages was approved on November 14, 2013. The cost of the project, which was to be completed within two years, was later ...
