Supreme Court Stays Insolvency Proceedings Against Jaypee Infratech

New Delhi, August 4: The Supreme Court on Monday put aside the Allahabad National Company Law Tribunal’s order that declared Jaypee Infratech as insolvent. Ruling in the favour of homebuyers, the apex court stayed the insolvency proceedings against the company.

The court has also issued notices to the Finance Ministry, Jaypee, RBI and the UP government. IDBI Bank–that had moved the Allahabad Tribunal against Jaypee to declare it as insolvent– also received a notice. Jaypee Infratech had defaulted on a loan of Rs 526 crore, given by IDBI Bank.

After the order of initiating insolvency proceedings against the litigant, a public interest litigation was filed by homebuyers to stay the NCLT order.

The petitioners had claimed that 32,000 homebuyers had not got their flats promised by Jaypee group. The court will hear their plea on October 10.  The home buyers had expressed concern that the insolvency proceedings would leave them without remedy to either a house or compensation.

The debt-ridden Jaypee group has proposed the sale of 74 per cent stake in Bhilai Jaypee Cement to raise Rs 2000 crore in order to extricate itself from the situation.

To revive its business operations and repay debt, the company has divested a substantial portion of its cement business with a capacity of 17.2 MTPA to Aditya Birla Group firm UltraTech Cement at an enterprise value of Rs 16,189 crore, reported PTI.

Jaypee had promised that it would start delivering 600 flat per month starting November, offer home buyers rejected.

Fin Min sends black money reports to Parliamentary panel

New Delhi, Sep 4 The Finance Ministry has sent three study reports on the quantum of black money held by Indians inside the country and abroad to a Parliamentary panel, more than three years after they were submitted to the government, officials said today.

The studies, commissioned by the previous UPA regime, were conducted by the Delhi-based National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP), National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) and National Institute of Financial Management (NIFM), Faridabad.

The NIPFP, NCAER and NIFM reports were received by the government on December 30, 2013, July 18, 2014, and August 21, 2014, respectively.

These reports were recently submitted to the Standing Committee on Finance, the officials told PTI.

Once cleared by the committee, the reports may be laid in Parliament, they said.

There is at present no official assessment on the quantum of black money in India and abroad.

A recent study by US-based think tank Global Financial Integrity (GFI) said an estimated USD 770 billion in black money entered India during 2005-2014.

Nearly USD 165 billion in illicit money exited the country during the same period, the latest report by the global financial watchdog said.

“The issue of black money has attracted a lot of public and media attention in the recent past. So far, there are no reliable estimates of black money generated and held within and outside the country,” the Finance ministry had said while ordering the studies in 2011.

These estimates were based on various unverifiable assumptions and approximations, it had said.

“Government has been seized of the matter and has, therefore, commissioned these institutions to get an estimation and sense of the quantum of illicit fund generated and held within and outside the country,” the ministry had said.

The Terms of Reference (ToR) for the studies included assessment or survey of unaccounted income and wealth and profiling the nature of activities engendering money laundering both within and outside the country.

The studies were to identify, among other issues, important sectors of the economy in which unaccounted money was generated and examine the causes and conditions that resulted in the generation.

Government to Convert Anganwadis Into Pre-school Education Centres

New Delhi, Aug 31: Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi on Thursday said that to widen the role of anganwadis, the government is now shifting the emphasis to convert anganwadis into centres of pre-school education.

As part of this measure, a massive exercise is being launched to train the anganwadi workers to become pre-school teachers. There are currently about 27 lakh anganwadi workers and helpers at 14 lakh anganwadi centres across the country.

“The role of anganwadi workers revolved around mainly distribution and provision of food to children and lactating mothers. However, the government is now shifting the emphasis to covert anganwadis into centres of pre-school education. As a result, a massive exercise is being launched to train the anganwadi workers to become pre-school teachers,” said Gandhi.

She was speaking at a programme held here to give national-level awards to Anganwadi workers to recognise their exemplary voluntary service in the field of child development and related areas under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) Scheme. The awards for the year 2016-17 were given to 51 awardees.

AICTE to Shut 800 Engineering Colleges Over Low Quality, Decreasing Admission Rate

New Delhi, Sep 2: A total of 65 engineering colleges will be shut down in 2017. AICTE has released a list of 65 institutes which cannot admit students in first year engineering programme. However, the existing students will continue. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has decided to shut a total of 800 engineering colleges across India as admissions in colleges have dropped down over last few years.

This year, 122 private engineering colleges had opted for a closure and approximately 150 colleges are voluntarily closed down every year due to stricter AICTE rules. One of the AICTE rules states that if a college lacks proper infrastructure and reports less than 30 per cent admissions for five consecutive years, it will be closed down, AICTE chairman Anil Dattatraya Sahasrabudhe told TOI.

देवोलिना भट्टाचार्जी नहीं होंगी बिग बॉस 11 का हिस्सा

में कहा, “मैं सुपरस्टार सलमान खान (‘बिग बॉस’ के होस्ट) के साथ काम करना चाहती हूं, लेकिन मैं फिलहाल ‘बिग बॉस’ नहीं कर सकती. मुझे शो से जुड़ने का प्रस्ताव मिला था. मेरे नाम पर विचार करने के लिए मैं चैनल और प्रोडक्शन हाउस का सम्मान करती हूं, लेकिन मैं हमेशा से नृत्य आधारित शो से जुड़ना चाहती थी या हो सकता है कि मैं ‘खतरों के खिलाड़ी’ जैसे शो में आऊं.”

अभिनेत्री फिलहाल छुट्टियां मना रही हैं.

देवोलिना ने कहा, “मैं उदयपुर में अपनी मां के साथ छुट्टियों का आनंद ले रही हूं. इस महीने उनका जन्मदिन आता है, इसलिए मैं सिर्फ उन्हें सारी खुशियां देने के बारे में सोच रही हूं.”

Heavy drinking may be more harmful for men than women

London, Sep 4 (PTI) Heavy drinking may harm men more than women, say scientists who found that long-term alcohol use affects brain functions in both genders differently.

Researchers from the University of Eastern Finland and Kuopio University Hospital in Finland worked with 11 young men and 16 young women who had a heavy 10-year alcohol use, and compared them with 12 young men and 13 young women who had little or no alcohol use.

All were between 23 to 28 years old at the time the measurements were taken.

The researchers examined the responses of the brain to being stimulated by magnetic pulses – known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), which activates brain neurons. The brain activity was measured using EEG (electroencephalogram).

Previously, the researchers had found that heavy alcohol users showed a greater electrical response in the cortex of the brain than non-alcohol users, which indicates that there had been long-term changes to how the brain responds.

This time, they found that young men and young women responded differently, with males showing a greater increase in electrical activity in the brain in response to a TMS pulse.

“We found more changes in brain electrical activity in male subjects, than in females, which was a surprise, as we expected it would be the other way around,” said Outi Kaarre from University of Eastern Finland.

“This means that male brain electrical functioning is changed more than female brains by long-term alcohol use,” said Kaarre.

The EEGs also allowed the researchers to show that male brains have greater electrical activity associated with the GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid) neurotransmission than do female brains.

“Generally, our work showed that alcohol causes more pronounced changes in both electrical and chemical neurotransmission in men than women,” said Kaarre.

“Our work offers a possible mechanism to these differences,” she said.

The research shows that long-term alcohol use affects young men and women very differently, and how these differences manifest themselves needs to be determined.

“We need to look at tightening regulations on youth drinking, since none of our study participants met the diagnostic criteria for alcohol use disorders and still these significant changes in brain functioning were found,” Kaarre said.

#Sensex falls 72 pts in early trade on weak Asian cues

Mumbai, Sep 4 (PTI) The benchmark BSE Sensex dropped about 72 points in early trade today, on fresh spell of selling by investors, taking weak cues from other Asian markets on escalating geopolitical tensions after North Korea’s latest nuclear test yesterday.

The 30-share index slipped by 71.65 points or 0.22 per cent to 31,820.58. The gauge had gained 503.84 points in the previous three sessions.

The NSE Nifty fell by 21.85 points, or 0.21 per cent, to 9,952.55.

Brokers said apart from profit booking in recent gainers by investors, a weak trend in Asian markets on mounting geopolitical tensions after North Korea said it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, pulled down the indices.
