Spare a thought for harried businessmen 22.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Are businessmen responsible for all the ills of the country? At least that's what seems to be the opinion of the present regime, particularly Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Rising non-performing assets (NPAs), negative Index of Industrial Production (IIP), lowest banks' credit growth of 60 years, unprecedented unemployment and business sentiment going low by the day. Ironically, the Government of India is busy making new laws (Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016) and amending the existing ones (Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, Debt Recovery Tribunal Act), making them tougher and stricter giving more teeth to the banks to recover their dues faster from businessmen. No thought seems to have been spared as to where the economy of the country is heading. Are the Sensex and NSE figures the only indicators of the country's economic health? Do they reflect ground reality? Does the MSME sector have any bearing on stock market? It is very pertinent ...

Kolkata woman seeks SC permission to abort 23-week foetus 22.6.2017 DNA: Top News
A 33-year-old woman from Kolkata has knocked on the doors of the top court on Wednesday seeking permission to abort her 23-week foetus claiming that it has a heart abnormality. The matter was referred to a medical board in Kolkata by a vacation bench of the Supreme Court comprising of Justices DY Chandrachud and Sanjay Kishan Kaul. Appearing for the petitioner, advocate Sneha Mukherjee claimed that the 33-year-old suffered immense mental and physical anguish as a result of the unreasonable 20-week restriction on abortion under Sections 2(b) of the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act. On May 25, during a foetal echocardiography conducted on the pregnant lady, it was suspected that the foetus suffered from Tetralogy of Fallot, a combination of four impairments in the heart. This was confirmed during a more comprehensive test conducted five days later. However, by then the lady had already crossed the 20-week mark and was thus unable to abort the foetus. Mukherjee claimed her client was anguished at ...
