In the backdrop of alleged medical negligence and overcharging by two private hospitals of the city, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) today urged state governments to subsidise emergencies in private sector and create a reimbursement mechanism.

Arab League demands reversal of Donald Trump's Jerusalem decision 10.12.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Arab foreign ministers today demanded that the United States rescind President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, calling it a "grave" development that puts Washington on the same side as "occupation" and the violation of international law. In a resolution long on rhetoric but short on concrete actions, the ministers also called for the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution condemning Trump's decision, but acknowledged that Washington would most likely veto it. If the US vetoes the resolution, the Arabs would seek a similar resolution in the UN General Assembly, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki told a pre-dawn news conference in Cairo. A two-page resolution adopted by the emergency meeting, which began last night, did not include any punitive actions against the United States, like a call for a boycott of American products or suspending or downgrading ties with Washington. It also appeared to fall short of matching the anger felt by Palestinians in the ...

Striking down a plea which sought to set aside the No Objection Cerificate (NoC) issued by the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) to a housing society, the Delhi High Court ruled that the construction of lifts in the service lane or common areas in housing societies owned by corporations is not illegal.
