The High Court of Karnataka has directed the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and others to refund central sales tax (CST) paid by Wipro GE Healthcare Pvt Ltd on purchase of certain medical equipment through inter-state trade and commerce. Hearing the petition filed by Wipro, Justice Vineet Kothari granted three months' time to the authorities to refund the CST already paid. Wipro had moved the court for reimbursement of the amount paid under provisions in the relevant foreign trade policy. However, they were denied reimbursement by authorities. The judge, in the order, said there is no justifiable reason for the authority to deny such benefit of reimbursement to the company merely because the goods in question are purchased from a unit situated in The Export Oriented Units/Special Economic Zone/Electronic Hardware Technology Park and Software Technology Parks of India specified zones. "Irrespective of the location of the manufacturing units selling such products to Wipro in the course of inter-state ...

Roadmin plans Rs 60K cr land buys, says prices shot up after new Act 3.5.2017 DNA: Top News
The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) is planning to spend around Rs 60,000 crore on land acquisition this year for various highway projects in the pipeline. For any infrastructure project -- be it roads, railways, logistics park, recreation zones, special economic zones, industrial parks -- land acquisition is the biggest challenge. Several road or highway projects are stuck or delayed due to land acquisition related issues, which has been among the top reasons for the delay in completing such projects. "As you are aware that since 2014, when the land acquisition law came into force, prices of land shot up substantially. This year itself we are spending Rs 60,000 crore on land acquisition," said Nitin Gadkari. On the reasons for land acquisition and the cost involved, he said a lot of road infrastructure work is being undertaken covering mega cities and regions, too. "In the road sector, earlier there was national highway length of 96,000 km out of the total around 52,00,000 km road ...

Brigade Group accused of dumping soil in Varthur lake 28.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Citizen volunteers from Thubarahalli and AECS Layout say real estate major, Brigade Group, is dumping soil on the Varthur lakebed in southeastern Bengaluru. On April 27, a group of volunteers noticed trucks streaming out of Brigade Tech Garden in Brookefields Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and headed for the Varthur lakebed near Vibgyor High. "We called the police who swung into action and seized five to six trucks the same day. A cursory examination showed that the samples of soil taken from Brigade Tech Garden and the lakebed were the same," said a volunteer, who would not be quoted. The volunteers have been keeping a close watch ever since a local resident filmed earthmovers dumping soil in the Varthur lakebed recently. The video spurred the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), the custodian of Varthur lake, to file a police complaint. Residents said the police were yet to make arrests. According to residents, trucks have been dumping soil in the lakebed for several months now but government agencies ...

How Dalit lands were stolen 26.4.2017 FrontLine: Social Justice
The British government, on the basis of a 1891 report on the subhuman living conditions of “Pariahs” by James H.A. Tremenheere, Acting Collector of Chengleput, assigned 12 lakh acres of land for distribution to the “depressed classes” of the Madras Presidency to empower them socially and economically. But more than 100 years later, much of this land is in the possession of non-Dalits, and the struggle to reclaim them has seen little progress. An exclusive story on how this tale of usurpation is still being played out. By ILANGOVAN RAJASEKARAN
