Supreme Court has thrashed Madhya Pradesh and Union Government for not acting hastily in the removal of Wastes from the Union Carbide Site in Bhopal. MP Government is in talks with German firm GIZ for disposal of 350 MT of toxic waste from the Union Carbide site.
A bench of Justice G.S.Singhvi and Justice S.J.Mukhopadhaya, while granting two weeks time as sought by senior counsel Ravi Shankar Prasad, appearing for the state government, asked him if the state government would be able to put in place an agreement with the German firm in this period.
In an expression of their disapproval at the way things were moving, the court said that it was not inclined to give any more time after this.
“If it (the agreement) does not happen in three weeks, we will close the case and conclude that neither the centre nor the state is willing to dispose the waste.”
A group of ministers (GoM) of the central government has already cleared the proposed deal with the German firm GIZ June 8 and had even released Rs. 25 crore to support the project.
However, the move lost momentum after German firm took time in responding to the letter issued by the state government, and it appeared that GIZ had certain reservations on some provisions of the agreement.

Odisha will raise the Existing Reservation Quota for Women in Urban Local Bodies from 33 percent to 50 percent.
Fifty percent reservation has already been given to women in the state’s panchayati raj institutions since last year.
To increase the quota for women in the urban local bodies, the government needs to amend the existing Odisha Municipal Act. The government is likely to present a bill in the assembly soon in this regard, the official added.

Soon the Indian Sansad Bhawan would be vacated in favour of a new Parliament Building. Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar has gave approval for setting up a high-powered committee to suggest an alternative complex.
Lok Sabha secretary general T.K. Viswanathan told IANS that the speaker had given an “in principle” approval to set up a committee to go into questions such as the site of alternate complex to house the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and how it will be constructed.
He said there was need for an alternate complex as the existing building was heavily used and cannot take the strain.
“Foofalls are increasing…Its heritage character should be preserved…. (There is need to) plan for the future,” he said.
The Central Public Works Department (CPWD) had said Thursday that the parliament building needs renovation as there were apprehensions of loosening of small ceiling tiles.
Viswanathan said composition of the committee will be decided in the next few days but it was likely to be headed by a leading public figure. The committee is likely to have representation from the urban development ministry.
The Speaker had directed the secretariat to take all possible precautions in the wake of Mantralaya fire in Mumbai.
Viswanathan said apart from seeking opinion from CPWD, his secretariat had also made its assessment about the present condition of the building.
The secretary general, who has accompanied the speaker on some of her visits abroad, said many parliament buildings were new and had been designed with future requirements in view.
He said there were suggestions during the discussion on women’s reservation bill to increase the seats in Lok Sabha and possibility of increase in strength of parliament cannot be ruled out.
The foundation stone of Parliament House building was laid in 1921. Constructed at a cost of Rs.83 lakh, it was inaugurated in January 1927.

Recently, a School Girl in Guwahati returning from Late Night Party was publicly molested by a gang of 20 Men on the Road. Guwahati is the Capital of Assam State and is the single largest metropolis of North-Eastern India.
The Girl is named Mousomi Sharma and she is a Class 11 Student. The Incident happened near Club Mint on the Guwahati-Shillong Road.
The Mob continued molesting her for around half an hour before police reached the spot. The whole Episode was recorded on Camera by a Reporter of a Local Television Channel.
The video was shot by Dipya Bordoloi the night reporter of a local TV channel, Newslive, which was uploaded on YouTube and went viral. When People all over India started an outrage over the whole Incident then only Government came into action.
Dipya Bordoloi, said he tried to help the victim when he saw the commotion. “It was almost like a gang-rape,” he said, adding that when it was clear that the mob could not be overcome, he began filming the incident for evidence against the attackers. He did the next best thing by recording the incident as evidence. This footage is the only reason that arrests are being made.
In Assam, the rate of crime against women is a shocking 36.9 per lakh, almost double the national average at 18.9. and this would have been a just another such Molestation by Unknown People Case, had it not went so viral on Internet.
The Faces of at least 12 People involved in the Molestation became clear in the Youtube Video. When the Mother of Accused Girl Filed Complaint, initially no action was taken, but upon the surfacing of video on Youtube, this matter became national issue. The Police subsequently arrested 4 of the accused, rest 8 are still missing. While the incident happened on Monday Night, the First Arrest was made only on Friday.
Watch the Whole Molestation Episode Yourself.
Upon some investigation, People have also discovered the Facebook Profiles of 6 of the People involved in this heinous Crime.
Many of the Molestors worked together in Assam Government owned IT company AMTRON. One of the Prime Accused is Amar Jyoti Kalita who is also a part time actor. Being a known face, he was easily recognized in the Video. Two others who were arrested are Dhananjoy Basfor, a sweeper and Bubul Das a local tradesman.
A hoarding in Guwahati put up by the government this morning shows the faces of some of those identified, including the main accused Kalita. The text on it reads: “These people have shamed the Assamese society. Please identify them. Your dear ones could also be victims of these predators. Please identify them and inform the nearest police station.”
For the First Time, Union Government has intervened in the matter. Home Minister P Chidambaram said, “Molestation of women anywhere in India is condemnable. Will find out from Assam CM what action the state government has been taken.”
"We are demanding that the men involved in the incident be given exemplary punishment and that the State government also punish the policemen for their late response. The fact that it has taken the State government nearly a week to act on the case is a matter of shame,'' said National Council of Women chairperson Mamta Sharma.
According to some other Sources, it was initially an Internal Fight which turned into a Violent Molestation. Three girls including the victim went to a bar with two boys; they got into a fight. When they left the pub, their fight turned violent. People gathered at a nearby rickshaw stand tried first to separate the victim and the boy she was fighting with but soon, the girl began to be molested. The police took 30 minutes to arrive there. Nobody tried to intervene to help the victim.

The Finance Ministry will review General Anti Avoidance Rules proposed in this Budget by Pranab Mukherjee. An expert committee has been setup for this purpose.
The four-member committee to be headed by Parthasarathi Shome, director and chief executive of the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER), has been asked to submit its report to the government by Sep 30, 2012, according to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s Office.
The committee will hold consultations with various stakeholders and finalise the draft GAAR guidelines. The second draft guidelines on the controversial anti-avoidance rules have to be published by Aug 31.
The announcement of setting up the expert panel comes within two weeks of the release of draft guidelines. The guidelines were released on direction of the prime minister, who now holds the finance portfolio.
Other members of the panel are N. Rangachary, former chairman of Insurance Regulatory Development Authority; Ajay Shah, professor at the government-run National Institute of Public Finance Policy (NIPFP); and Sunil Gupta, joint secretary, tax policy and legislation in the finance ministry.
The then finance minister Pranab Mukherjee announced the General Anti Avoidance Rules as part of the budgetary proposal in the 2012-13 union budget presented in parliament in March this year.
However, following widespread protests from business community and political parties, Mukherjee later deferred the implementation of the new tax rules by one year.
The new rules will now be applicable from the beginning of the next financial year instead of April 1, 2012, as earlier proposed.
“While postponing GAAR by one year to 2013 was a very welcome move, a widespread consultative process is necessary to generate a discussion on GAAR provisions so that there is an informed debate on how GAAR is going to operate,” the statement released by the PMO said.
The statement said the new committee would help bring transparency in the implementation of the new tax rules.
The terms of reference of the committee include:
–Receiving comments from stakeholders and the general public on the draft GAAR guidelines, which have been published by the government on its website.
–Vet and rework the guidelines based on this feedback and publish the second draft of the GAAR guidelines for comments and consultations.
–Undertake widespread consultations on the second draft GAAR guidelines
–Finalise the GAAR guidelines and a roadmap for implementation and submit these to the government.
The Department of Revenue will provide all necessary support to the expert committee to facilitate its work, including office assistance and assistance to facilitate consultations, the PMO said.

The Peace in Kashmir is not liked across the Border and if the Officers Investigations Abu Hamza Jundal to be believed, Lashkar-e-Taiba is planning major attacks to disrupt the Peace in Kashmir. Apparently no major attacks have been launched since 2008 Mumbai attacks and this is seen as a weakening of Militancy across the Border.
Jundal, believed to be “a mine of information” on the Lashkar and its anti-India plans, also told his interrogators that the group was planning to push hundreds of trained gunmen and weapons into Kashmir.
“The group wants to revive militancy in Jammu and Kashmir, particularly make its presence felt in urban areas,” a reliable source privy to his interrogation details said.
The source said that Jundal, believed to the highest ranking Indian in the terror outfit, had stayed for some time in Pakistan-administered Kashmir before and after the Mumbai attack and became close to the Kashmiri militant leadership in Muzaffarabad.
He told his interrogators that the United Jehad Council (UJC), an amalgam of terror groups that operates out of Muzaffarabad, was making elaborate plans to push fresh groups of terrorists into Jammu and Kashmir through non-traditional routes along the Line of Control (LoC) – a de facto border that divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan.
Jundal, deported to India from Saudi Arabia last month, has revealed that these groups were planning to enter Kashmir through Poonch and Rajouri in the Jammu region.
These militants, as per the Lashkar plans, will then be sent to different parts of India where they will target places of worship and other crowded spots.
“Peace in Kashmir has in particular upset the Lashkar. The Lashkar leadership has asked the UJC commander (Syed Salahuddin who also heads the Hizbul Mujahideen) to pull up its socks,” the source quoted Jundal as saying.
“They (militants) are planning big strikes in Kashmir,” the source added, citing Jundal’s interrogation.
Sources in Jammu and Kashmir Police said that the information had been shared with them. Subsequently, security has been beefed up, particularly for the hundreds of thousands of Hindus visiting the Amarnath cave temple near the south Kashmir tourist resort Pahalgam.
Kashmir Police sources said two recent militant strikes in south Kashmir in which a soldier and two policemen were killed may be part of the latest Lashkar strategy.
Jundal, who is being questioned at the heavily guarded special cell office of Delhi Police, has told his interrogators that it was actually a Kashmiri Lashkar commander who got him into the group.
Aslam Kashmiri, a known militant commander in the custody of Delhi Police after his arrest in 2009, met Jundal in Beed district of Maharahstra in 2005 through another Lashkar militant, Fayaz Kagzi.
Kashmiri, the sources said, had been given the job of recruiting into the outfit young Indian Muslims who could be radicalised.
They said Jundal was an easy target for Kashmiri because he was highly sentimental and was mesmerised by his jehadi talk.
