Aadhar card legalized:Supreme Court

Posted by : MCO Legals Team

New DelhiThe Supreme Court today rejected the Centre's plea to modify an interim ruling that the Aadhaar or the Unique Identity Card is not mandatory for essential services. 

The court also took a dig at the government over its ordinance to override a Supreme Court order disqualifying convicted MPs, withdrawn last week in a blaze of controversy.  

When the government lawyer admitted that a law on Aadhaar was before the cabinet, the judges sarcastically said, "You have the ordinance route also. If you have a law this case becomes irrelevant." 

 

Setback for Centre as SC maintains Aadhar card not mandatory

Posted by : MCO Legals Team

Zee Media Bureau 

New Delhi: In a setback for Centre, the Supreme Court on Tuesday maintained that Aadhar card is not compulsory for availing social benefits. 

The apex court, however, agreed to give an urgent hearing to Centre on the issue but refused to grant any relief to it and oil PSUs seeking modification of its earlier order in this regard. 

The highest court passed its order while hearing a batch of petitions, including the one filed by social worker like Aruna Roy against the implementation of the Aadhar scheme or the "Unique Identification Number" System (UID), linking it to various social benefit schemes. 

The petitions came up before a bench comprising Justices BS Chauhan and SA Bobde, which decided to club them with other applications, filed by the Centre and the three oil PSUs seeking modification of its earlier order that Aadhar card is not mandatory. 

"...The enrolment under the UIDAI scheme is purportedly voluntary - yet many welfare schemes of the State seem to mandate the need for an Aadhar number to access those schemes - effectively making Aadhar enrolment compulsory," the petition filed by social workers said. 

The petition also said the manner in which the biometric details of the citizens are collected by private contractors and NGOs hired by UIDAI without any safeguard makes it prone to misuse not only by private actors but also by the State. 

The petitioners also claimed there is an empirical research to show that the biometric identification denoted for UID, namely the Iris Scan and finger print Identification, is faulty and capable of misuse. 

SC to hear OMCs, activists' pleas on Aadhaar today

Posted by : MCO Legals Team

The Supreme Court on Monday decided to hear a plea by oil marketing firms for modification in its September order that said Aadhaar card is not mandatory and no person should suffer for want of it in getting benefits of government schemes.

The apex court will also hear on Tuesday another plea by social activist Aruna Roy who has sought scrapping of Aadhaar.

The PSU oil companies – ONGC, HPCL and BPCL - through Additional Solicitor General Nageshwar Rao said that the earlier order created “serious doubts, confusion and uncertainty” in the minds of citizens who have already enrolled for Aadhaar card to avail the Direct Benefit Transfer for Liquefied Petroleum Gas Consumers (DBTL) scheme for subsidised LPG cylinders.

OMCs, who are in process of implementing the Direct Benefit Transfer for LPG, have been prejudiced by the order as DBTL has already been implemented in 54 districts and further 235 districts are being covered, they said.

Supreme Court refuses to modify its order on Aadhaar

While agreeing to give urgent hearing in the Aadhaar matter, the apex court refused to modify its earlier order

The union government and state-run oil marketing companies on Tuesday failed to get any relief from the Supreme Court over the unique identification (UID) or Aadhaarnumber. The apex court, while agreeing to give urgent hearing in the matter refused to modify its earlier order.

 

On 23rd September, the Supreme Court ruled that Aadhaar is not mandatory to avail essential services from the government. While hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by retired Karnataka High Court judge Justice KS Puttaswamy and advocate Parvesh Khanna questioning the legal sanctity of Aadhaar, the apex court said, "The centre and state governments must not insist on Aadhaar from citizens before providing them essential services."

The Telegraph

Posted by : MCO Legals Team

 The Supreme Court will tomorrow hear an application from the three oil majors urging it to declare that only those who can furnish Aadhaar cards are eligible for subsidised cooking gas.

However, the same bench will simultaneously hear a diametrically opposed petition, moved by social activist Aruna Roy. The petition seeks the quashing of the Aadhaar project claiming it was introduced arbitrarily, ineffectively and without enough legal safeguards.

The oil companies’ joint application requests the court to “modify” its September 23 order that said the production of Aadhaar cards could not be made mandatory for availing welfare.

India’s Supreme Court rules in favor of deregulating diesel fuel prices for bulk consumers


Last January, the government announced that diesel prices would be raised every month and bulk consumers will not be able to avail of subsidized diesel fuel. Transport corporations challenged the move in the Madras, Kerala and Andhra high courts.

The recent decision of India’s highest court, although only a partial victory, is a boost for the oil industry, which is dominated by publicly owned corporations. India’s Oil Ministry has faced several legal challenges against key pricing decisions for oil and natural gas.

Economy in bad shape, need to be pragmatic on subsidies: SC


New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday cleared the decks for Centre for not providing subsidised diesel to bulk consumers of public utility services like Railways and state transport corporations, saying the economy is in bad shape and pragmatic approach is needed to be taken on subsidies.

The apex court said that stereotype thinking on subsidy has to be changed as economy, which has been hit by falling value of Rupee, has to survive and Public Transport Corporations have to find out means to sustain themselves without getting subsidy.

Economy cannot sustain subsidy to bulk diesel buyers: SC

 

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday understood the Centre's predicament in withdrawing subsidy on diesel to bulk buyers like railways and state road transport corporations and said when a major part of crude oil was imported, consumers had to bear the brunt given the bad shape of the economy. 

"We have to change the mindset. You (transport corporations) just cannot sustain on subsidy. You have to find ways and means to sustain. You have to charge from public. We cannot ignore the fact that oil is imported. Stereotype thinking has to be changed. How can you continue to survive on subsidy," a bench of Justices R M Lodha and Madan B Lokur said.

Supreme Court endorses government’s move to charge deregulated diesel prices to bulk consumers


NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has endorsed the government's decision to charge market prices for diesel sold to bulk buyers such as defence, railways and transport corporations. The decision had been stayed by some courts after transport corporations challenged it.

The decision of the top court is a shot in the arm for the oil ministry, which is struggling to control the oil import bill due to rise in global crude oil prices and weakening of the rupee. It has faced several legal challenges against key pricing decisions for oil and natural gas.

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today issued notices on petitions filed by PSU major Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) seeking transfer of cases pending in various high courts against the Centre\'s decision to de-control diesel price. 

Some of the pleas were also directed against the decisions of the high court’s asking the Centre not to implement the decision taken by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas on January 17, this year to allow the market to regulate the diesel price. 

Centre spreads its decision to the North

Posted by : MCO Legals Team

The Supreme Court on Monday restrained the high courts from hearing petitions challenging the Centre’s policy decision to deregulate prices of diesel supplied to bulk consumers of public utility services.

A bench comprising justices BS Chauhan and Dipak Misra, while seeking a reply from the Kerala and Karnataka governments, their state road transport corporations, Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation and others, stayed the proceedings in the high courts of Madras, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Gujarat subject to public sector oil marketing companies (OMCs) amending their prayers in their petition on a technical issue.

The order came after solicitor general Mohan Parasaran and counsel Amit Meharia, appearing for OMCs, sought transfer of the petitions to the apex court from different HCs, which are hearing pleas against the petroleum ministry’s decision to charge bulk consumers at market rates as per its new dual pricing policy of January 17.

Supreme Court stays proceedings against diesel decontrol

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has stayed all proceedings in various high courts against moves to decontrol diesel, clearing a big hurdle in the implementation of the liberal fuel policy, which the government said was driven by concerns of fiscal prudence, energy security and freeing up funds for welfare schemes.

The government was facing legal challenges against its move to gradually align diesel prices to international levels and grant state oil firms the freedom to charge full market rates to bulk buyers such as railways, defence and state transport corporations. Bulk purchasers had challenged the policy in various High Courts.

New Delhi, May 13: The Supreme Court today stayed all the proceedings before the various courts relating to the Centre’s dual pricing policy on diesel, which allows sale of the fuel at market prices to bulk buyers while retaining subsidies for retail buyers.

A vacation bench passed the order on a plea filed by the Indian Oil Corporation asking that all the petitions on the matter that are pending in the various high courts be transferred to the apex court.

Do it the Legal way: Concept of Will and its increasing importance

In this fast pace life, we seldom stop-think and analyze, what about our assets? How to secure the interests of your loved ones after life gives up on you? We never think about it.As a result of which, we witness bitter situations within the family itself. It’s sad, but the harsh truth of life too.

Our Indian law makers were visionaries; they could sense the trouble paths and make it simpler with law.  And I don’t say this because I’m a legal practitioner, but as a common man.  The law makers came up with the concept of Will.  Simply put, a Will is an important document which enables the individual/any living person to rightfully leave his/her assets and wealth to whoever he/she chooses to, after his/her death. In a way a person can ensure that his/her wishes with respect to his/her assets and property are followed after his/her death.
