India’s ‘magnanimity and generosity’ cannot be taken for granted, says Supreme Court

Deploring the fact that foreign countries have refused to hand over criminals facing serious charges in India, the Supreme Court Friday asserted that the country’s "magnanimity and generosity" should not be taken for granted by the world and that everyone must show reverence to the laws here. A bench led by Chief Justice of India J S Khehar said that foreign nationals are welcomed by this country "with arms wide open" but there was no way they could disrespect the laws and still be treated with the same generosity.

Nothing in law to bar Centre from advancing presentation of budget, says Supreme Court*

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday said there was nothing in the law that could bar the government from advancing the date for the presentation of the annual budget for the year 2017-18.

The court also asked the petitioner to show if there was any such provision in the law that could back his plea against the government decision.

A bench of Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud asked the PIL petitioner, advocate M.L. Sharma, to show them the provision that could bar the Centre from presenting the budget on February 1.

“We tried to find the provision but we did not get,” the bench told Sharma.

It also asked him to show “which provision of the law is violated, which provision of constitution is violated” by advancing the budget date.

Having said this, the court gave Sharma time till January 20, to look for the provision to back his plea for deferring the budget till the last phase of polling to five state assemblies was over.

The government has advanced the presentation of the annual budget to February 1, instead of the usual practice of presenting it on the last day of February.

Why Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP govt’s move to slash bus fares by 70% is senseless

The Arvind Kejriwal government’s new year gift to the citizen of Delhi in the form of slashing bus fares had to be postponed due to issues related to L-G office and departments concerned. Now it is evident that people taking public transport in Delhi will have to wait for some more time to travel in DTC and cluster buses on cut-fare tickets. The AAP government had planned to reduce monthly bus pass rates from Rs 800 to Rs 250 for non-AC buses, and from Rs 1,000 to Rs 250 for AC buses – a 70% cut. There will be a flat fare of Rs 5 in non-AC DTC and cluster buses, while it will be Rs 10 in air-conditioned buses for a month on trial basis.
