Congress will not allow Centre to implement new Land Bill: Girija Vyas 22.5.2015 DNA: Popular News
Former Union Minister Girija Vyas on Friday said Congress will not allow the Centre to implement new Land Bill and said farmers have become worst victims of apathy during the one-year rule of the BJP-led NDA government. "Farmers have become worst victims of neglect and apathy during the one-year rule of the NDA government, which failed to give any relief to them even after natural calamities like unseasonal rains, damaging rabi crops over 200 lakh hectares of land," she told reporters. "What restrained the Prime Minister from declaring the devastating rains and floods as national calamity," she asked, alleging that the relief given to the farmers was like "rubbing salt on their wounds". Instead of helping the farmers, the Narendra Modi government was only serving the interests of the crony capitalist friends and the new Land Ordinance would help the NDA government to grab the lands of the farmers to benefit the capitalists, she claimed. She said the UPA government had passed the Land Bill after due ...

Serious operation needed to combat 'black money cancer': SIT 22.5.2015 DNA: Popular News
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) on black money said on Friday a "serious operation" of strictly enacting and enforcing anti-tax evasion laws is the only solution for combating and winning over the "cancerous" menace of illegal funds stashed abroad and within the country. SIT Chairman Justice (retd) MB Shah, while launching a book on the subject, said a combination of "strong enactment and enforcement" of laws is the most necessary requirement if the country wants to check black money and "bring out" the offenders and various instances of black economy perpetration. "It (combating black money) may require serious operation. Unless there is serious operation by enactment and enforcement of laws you will not be able to get black money, or to say, bring it out. Mere making a statement will not do anything. This cancerous growth is required to be controlled. Corruption at all levels is the main cause of the generation of black money," he said. Justice Shah exhorted that the "wrong" has to be punished as ...

A Special court for Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) cases on Friday sent two Delhi-based alleged bookies to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody here in a multi-crore rupee IPL cricket betting case. The Special PMLA court judge AP Bhojak sent alleged bookies Ritesh Bansal alias Bharat Delhi and his brother Ankush Bansal to ED custody, acting on ED's plea seeking ten days' custody of the duo. On May 10, ED had arrested them from their house in Shastri Nagar in Delhi. The duo were arrested during ED's searches with regard to an alleged Rs 4,000-crore money-laundering case against the syndicates which took bets on IPL T-20 cricket matches. The probe agency had earlier sought their custody but it was rejected by the same PMLA court on May 10. Later, the probe agency had last week approached the Gujarat high court which had directed the lower court to hear the plea again. ED has submitted before the court that these two were associated with Tommy Patel and Kiran Mala, two Gujarat-based bookies who ...

Law Commission recommends joint custody of child in divorce cases 22.5.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Pitching for removal of superiority of one parent over the other, the Law Commission on Friday recommended joint custody of minors to both the parents in case of a divorce, saying Indian custody laws must change with times. The Commission's recommendations on custody laws assume significance as in India the idea of shared parenting is still new to custody jurisprudence. "Neither the father nor the mother of a minor can, as of a right, claim to be appointed by the court as the guardian unless such an appointment is for the welfare of the minor," it said in its report submitted to the Law Ministry today. It said wherever possible, courts should now grant joint custody of minors. Recommending changes in the Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act and the Guardians and Wards Act, the panel said even after the Supreme Court's judgement in Gita Hariharan vs Reserve Bank of India case, the mother can become a natural guardian during the lifetime of the father only in exceptional circumstances. "This is required to ...
