But the bench did not indulge the top law officer further on this aspect by saying it was not considering the merits of the matter.At the end of the hearing, the AG attempted to submit that several former judges have opined that the Supreme Court has failed democracy and that there was corruption in higher judiciary. However, the bench interrupted him and said that the merits of the matter were not under consideration.Though the court had issued notice to the AG in the contempt case, seeking his assistance in the matter, it chose not to hear him during the hearing of the case. The verdict holding Bhushan guilty of contempt was thus pronounced without hearing the AG.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

This order was challenged in 2019 before the Bombay High Court which dismissed it on the ground of delay.In appeal, the bench noticed that the show cause notice issued to the company did not state that action by blacklisting was to be taken, or was under contemplation. The court observed:”If the respondents had expressed their mind in the show cause notice to blacklist, the appellant could have filed an appropriate response to the same. The insistence of the respondents to support the impugned order by reference to the terms of the tender cannot cure the illegality in absence of the appellant being a successful tenderer and supplier. We therefore hold that the order of blacklisting dated 08.09.2009 stands vitiated from the very inception on more than one ground and merits interference.”The court also added that, In M/s Daffodills Pharmaceuticals vs. State of U.P, it was observed that an order of blacklisting beyond 3 years or maximum of 5 years was disproportionate. Regarding the issue of delay in approaching the writ court, the bench observed that the writ petition was not barred by unexplained delay. It said:”There is no doubt that the High Court in its discretionary jurisdiction may decline to exercise the discretionary writ jurisdiction on ground of delay in approaching the court. But it is only a rule of discretion by exercise of self restraint evolved by the court in exercise of the discretionary equitable jurisdiction and not a mandatory requirement that every delayed petition must be dismissed on the ground of delay. The Limitation Act stricto sensu does not apply to the writ jurisdiction. The discretion vested in the court under Article 226 of the Constitution therefore has to be a judicious exercise of the discretion after considering all pros and cons of the matter, including the nature of the dispute, the explanation for the delay, whether any third­ party rights have intervened etc. The jurisdiction under Article 226 being equitable in nature, questions of proportionality in considering whether the impugned order merits interference or not in exercise of the discretionary jurisdiction will also arise.”CASE: VETINDIA PHARMACEUTICALS LIMITED vs. STATE OF UTTAR PRADESH [CIVIL APPEAL NO.3647 OF 2020]CORAM: Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and Krishna Murari.COUNSEL: Adv Shobha Gupta, Adv Ankit GoelClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Pension shortfalls will force age of retirement to rise

first_img Comments are closed. Retirement is set to become a thing of the past as many people are expectedto have to work into their mid-70sBritain’s rapidly ageing workforce and the decline in company pensionschemes will mean workers staying in employment longer as they are forced toput off their retirement, a study has shown. Occupational health departments are likely to be closely involved in howemployers react to the changing demographics of the working population,according to private health insurer Bupa. By 2020, it estimates more than one in four UK workers will be over pensionableage and pensions shortfalls and fewer younger people will mean many more peoplewill find they have to work into their mid-70s. Yet a study by KPMG of 2,000 employers and employees found 60 per cent ofemployees said they would like to retire by the age of 65 and 11 per cent under34 said they wanted to retire before 55. The vast majority of employees – 73 per cent – said they would be unhappyabout working until 70. Dr Jenny Leeser, clinical director of occupational health at the private insurer,predicted there would need to be a greater focus on mental health and wellbeingservices within OH departments to respond to the needs of an ageing workforce. While most employers said they did not encourage managers to be aware of themental state of their workers, 44 per cent admitted their employees sufferedunacceptable levels of stress. General fitness programmes could also become more commonplace. “There would probably need to be more designing of jobs and trainingprogrammes to accommodate their requirements,” she added, with OHdepartments working closely with their colleagues in training.

Brexit uncertainty has reduced sales transactions by up to 42% in London

Sales have dropped by 42% in Kensington & Chelsea, closely followed by the City of Westminster (-39%) and Camden (-36%).Areas with decreases of 30% or more outside London include Slough, Watford and Redbridge.The rest of England has either seen modest reductions in property transactions including in the East Midlands (-8%) and West Midlands (-7%) or modest increases including Scotland (+4%), Wales (+2%), North East (+1%) and Northern Ireland (+1%).The exceptions to this rule are almost exclusively in Wales and Scotland including Torfeaen in Wales, where transactions have increased by 45%.“The housing market has become more stagnant in the UK as a whole since the EU referendum. But when we breakdown the analysis to a regional and local level, the picture becomes more complex,” says Nitesh Patel, Yorkshire Building Society’s Strategic Economist. sales transactions nitesh patel Brexit yorkshire building society October 1, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Margaret Thatcher’s Death: Oxford reacts

first_imgVice-Chancellor Andrew Hamilton described the former Prime Minister as “ranking among the most prominent of Oxford’s alumni.”“Today,” Hamilton said, “we remember a graduate of the University who reached the highest public office and had a lasting impact on British politics and society.”The statement on behalf of the University represents a sharp change from how it previously regarded Baroness Thatcher. In 1985 she became the first post-war Oxford-educated Prime Minister to be refused an honorary degree by her alma mater, because of her decision to cut education funding.On Wednesday Banbury MP Sir Tony Baldry told the Commons, which has been recalled from Easter Recess to pay tribute to Baroness Thatcher, that the decision “reflected badly on the image and reputation of Oxford University”.More recently, in Hilary 2012, strong opposition was voiced inside the University regarding plans to name a building in the Said Business School after her.The Principal of Somerville, Baroness Thatcher’s old Oxford college, Dr. Alice Prochaska stated, “It is with great sorrow that we have learned of the death of Margaret Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven, this morning at the age of 87.Somerville have released photos of Margaret Thatcher, née Roberts, from her undergraduate days at the college, as well as a letter the Prime Minister wrote to the college in 1980. “We are immensely proud to have educated Britain’s first – and so far only – female Prime Minister and one of the most internationally significant statespeople of the twentieth century. On this sad day, we pay tribute to the truly pioneering spirit that propelled her to the pinnacle of British political, and public, life.”Before her death, Somerville College had awarded a number of honours to Baroness Thatcher, including naming a conference centre after her, as well as bestowing a number of scholarships in her name.Cherwell understand that Somerville will now increase the number of scholarships bearing her name. The college also plans to hold a memorial service, likely to take place during the upcoming Michaelmas term.Margaret Roberts, as she then was, went up to Oxford in 1943 to study Chemistry. She excelled academically, and was tutored by Dorothy Hodgkin, the only British woman who has won the Nobel Prize for Science.Baroness Thatcher served as President of the Oxford University Conservative Association in Michaelmas 1946, though she was not the first woman to hold that position.Roberto Weeden-Sanz, a first-year historian at St Benet’s Hall and OUCA member, commented, “She was very much the product of her time, which was a time of great division and difficulty in society and although she did not solve that division, she was able to grapple with the country’s deep economic problems and allowed Britain to stand up proud, on the international stage once more. ”According to Helena Dollimore, an undergraduate at St Hilda’s and an Oxford University NUS delegate, “at least 40 people” cheered news of Baroness Thatcher’s death in the conference hall this afternoon. Jack Matthews, Oxford student and Deputy Chairman of West Midlands Conservative Future, described the applause he had witnessed by delegates in the chamber as “shameful”.Dollimore, a Co-Chair of Oxford University Labour Club, said that “obviously I don’t agree with Thatcher’s policies, but we need to recognise that she was the first female Prime Minister and that counts for something.“I completely condemn the behaviour of those NUS delegates and have no respect whatsoever for their behaviour.”Liam Byrne, President of the NUS, told delegates after the incident to “think very carefully indeed about how you respond to this news as conference continues.”“We believe there is such thing as humanity. There is such a thing as sensitivity. And there is such a thing as respect,” he told the conference. “It’s not just that this would reflect extremely badly upon us if we were to show disrespect at this time. We are better than that.”last_img read more

30th Edition of Christmas Dinner a Festive Delight

first_imgAfter 30 years, Mike and Peaches Lukens are wrapping up what is expected to be their last Community Christmas Dinner. By TIM KELLYOcean City Councilman Keith Hartzell, a longtime volunteer and benefactor to Wednesday’s Community Christmas Dinner in Ocean City, took a moment to consider the event organizers, Mike and Peaches Lukens.The couple conceived the event in 1989, organized it and executed it every year since.“They are the heart and soul of what it means to call Ocean City ‘America’s Greatest Family Resort,’” Hartzell said. “We’re a beach resort in the summer. In the other nine months, we’re a Norman Rockwell painting. We’re Mayberry. We’re small town America coming together as a community. Nothing says it better than this event.”Peaches and Mike, who started the event by serving approximately 150 people at the old Ocean City Youth Center, have seen their idea grow into one of the town’s most beloved events. For more than 20 years now, it has taken place at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church.“We will serve more than 800 meals today,” Mike Lukens said of the event, which ran from noon to 3 p.m. Christmas Day. “We were prepared to serve 1,200. We served more than 500 dinners in the first hour alone.”He and his wife announced earlier in the year that this would be their last at the helm of the event. The couple relocated to Cape May, and found it more difficult to accomplish the many details of the dinner from a long distance.Mike did leave some wiggle room, though. “Maybe someone will rope us into it one more year,” he said with a laugh, and added, “We will be involved in some way. It just won’t be the same.”No, it won’t. Mike and Peaches and Jennifer Bowman, who handles much of the marketing side of the dinner, were in search of sponsorship to take over the financial cost of the dinner, possibly in exchange for the sponsor’s name on the event.Enjoying the community dinner are (clockwise from bottom left) Connie Henry, Bill Henry, Jim Kelly, Donna Kelly, Rob Kelly, Shannon Kelly, Mason Henry and Jordan Henry.They were also considering crowdfunding as an option to help keep the tradition intact.Last week, after reading of the event’s situation in an OCNJDaily.com article, Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian personally donated a new commercial grade refrigerator to the church after learning the old one needed to be replaced right away.Individual and group donations poured in after the story, raising most of the funds needed to pay for this year’s dinner and its staging.Bowman was quick to point out that while the dinner has fed thousands of people in need over the years, it is not designed for that purpose alone.“Mike and Peaches wanted a nice, free, fun event for people who had nowhere else to go. Or people who have family elsewhere and can’t get away.”Peaches Lukens serves beverages during the dinner at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church.Hartzell, who has donated beverages for the dinner for years, said he was a good example. A traveling sales executive, he said Christmas “is one day where I can relax and my phone won’t ring. I live in the neighborhood and I can walk here. I’m able to volunteer and help.”“But I’m also able to enjoy it, have a great meal and take some food home,” Hartzell continued.Throughout the dining area, individuals, couples, families and larger groups were seen interacting and enjoying each other’s company and a great holiday meal.“This is a fantastic thing for the community,” said “Lenny B,” a DJ and karaoke singer who kept the Christmas music flowing. “I’m here every year, and I’m happy to be a part of it.”In addition to food and music, candy, toys and toiletries were handed out to those in need. People needing rides were transported to and from the event, and shut-ins were the recipients of donated and delivered meals.Hartzell summed up the Christmas and community spirit that permeates the dinner year in and year out.“Ocean City was founded by God-fearing people,” he said. “Today’s event shows once again that we are still a God-fearing community.”DJ and karaoke master “Lenny B” provides entertainment.last_img read more

Cake Box relaunches click and collect scheme

first_imgEgg-free cake specialist Cake Box has relaunched its click-and-collect scheme, allowing customers to order cakes online and collect at one of its stores.On 24 March, the business informed all franchisees that stores should be closed in line with government advice. However, having taken the time to review its operations and consult with franchisees, Cake Box has finalised new ways of working that allow it to provide a limited click-and-collect service to customers while ensuring the safety of staff.As part of this, customers will not be allowed into stores to order cakes – instead, they will be able to order through the website and pick up via contactless collection at the door.New safety measures include:Initially operating with smaller teams in-store to allow for social distancing from colleagues;Clearly demarking required distances for social distancing throughout the premises;Requiring staff to wear PPE at all times including face masks and shields;Contactless collection of product by customers at the door;Implementing an enhanced personal and property hygiene regime.Cake Box added that it would continue to review these processes and implement any and all further measures it felt were necessary to ensure everyone remained safe.In a trading update earlier this month, the business said relatively low levels of rent and overheads would help its franchisee businesses recover from the impact of coronavirus.last_img read more
