Adnan Sami gets waiver, to stay back in India 4.8.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
Modi government has allowed popular Pakistani singer Adnan Sami to stay in India for an indefinite period on his plea to stay back on humanitarian grounds. The government on Tuesday conveyed to the Lok Sabha that Sami has been exempted from deportation proceedings under Section 3 of the Foreigners Act and would be allowed to stay till further orders.  Lahore-born, Adnan Sami had first arrived in India in 2001 on a visitor's visa with the validity of one year which was issued by the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.  His foray in Bollywood catapulted him to top singer slot with hit songs - 'Kabhi Tow Nazar Milao' and 'Thodi Si Tow Lift Karaa De' in early 2000s and Sami became a household name in India.

Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars Global Fellow Raymond E Vickery, who is a former US Assistant Secretary of Commerce, has spoken of the need for concrete steps in improving ease of doing business in India so that more foreign direct investment (FDI) can move into the country. He was speaking to reporters at an interactive session organised by Prajavani on Monday.

No appeals against return of passports to Coalgate accused 23.7.2015 deccanherald.com
It's not just in the case of former Indian Premiere League (IPL) chief Lalit Kumar Modi that the government did not appeal against court orders for return of seized passports. The BJP-led Centre had decided not to appeal in at least three cases, including two accused in coal block allocation scam. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj informed the Rajya Sabha on Thursday that Regional Passport Offices in consultation with the Consular, Passport and Visa division of her ministry had the authority to move only up to High Courts to file appeals against lower court's order for restoration of passports revoked, impounded or seized on request of investigation agencies. Swaraj has been at the centre of a controversy since last month in the wake of revelations that she had helped Lalit Modi get a travel document from the UnitedKingdom authorities at a time after his passport had been revoked by India for not complying with the summonses issued by the Enforcement Directorate. HC order In a written reply to a ...
