Lawyers up against ‘judge-son nexus’
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 17
The Punjab and Haryana High Court advocates do not want judges with practising sons and relatives to stay in the same court.

In a requisition believed to have been signed by over 800 advocates and passed by the Bar Association, the advocates have asserted: “To check the growth of judge-son/relative nexus syndrome, those judges be transferred immediately whose sons/relatives are practising in the high court.”

Available information suggests as many as 10 judges could be affected by the resolution. The lawyers have also demanded declaration of assets be made mandatory for all candidates at the time of elevation; and there should be an “all-India judicial service on the pattern of IAS/IPS”.

The requisition reads: “The issue of declaration of assets has been a matter of controversy after the CJI said a few months ago that there was no law that made it mandatory for the judges to make their assets public.”

However, bowing to the pressure from various quarters, including by sitting judges and former CJI, as well as the people of India, judges of the Supreme Court decided on August 26 to make public their assets.

“So far, only the judges of the Supreme Court and seven high courts have decided to declare their assets, but judges of 18 high courts have not even decided to disclose their assets till today. So declaration of assets by the higher judiciary be made mandatory by the provision of law,” it has been said. The lawyers have also asked for a transparent and irreversible transfer policy.



HC jolt for male health guides

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 17
The Punjab and Haryana High Court has held that the Centre’s communication against discontinuation of “male health guides” schemes in different states and union territories is “not enforceable as a right”.

With this, the court has refused to entertain a petition filed by removed “guides”, who were “primarily meant for educating and motivating villagers to accept available health care services”.

The Government of India issued a letter on May 15, 1987, intimating it had already informed the states and union territories not to discontinue the “male health guides” scheme.

Seeking compliance, Sharda Ram Brahmania and others petitioners had filed a petition against the Government of India and other respondents. Challenging the discontinuation, they had prayed for directions to the respondents to provide them with medicine kits and stipend to all male health guides.

Taking up the matter, Justice Ranjit Singh ruled: “Certainly no legal or constitutional right had been violated, which could be challenged in the writ petition. Prayer made in the writ petition is to seek enforcement of a communication from the Central Government to the state counsel. The annexure is a letter intimating individuals that the state has been informed not to discontinue with male guides. This communication is certainly not enforceable as a right.”

“The first prayer made in the writ petition is for directing respondents to supply medicine kits. The petitioners would not have any right to receive medicine kits for which enforceable directions can be issued to the state - respondent. Second prayer is to release their stipend, Rs 50 per month. Once the scheme is discontinued, stipend will not be payable”.

In the detailed order, Justice Ranjit Singh asserted: “Otherwise also, the petitioner has not shown breach of any legal or fundamental right, for which the writ jurisdiction is required to be exercised.

The petitioners have not challenged the action of the state government to discontinue the scheme in the writ petition. Thus, I am of the view that writ petition is misconceived and deserves to be dismissed. It is so ordered.”

Chandigarh, November 17
Upholding orders of the District Consumer Forum, Hisar, the state commission has directed the Punjab Tractors Limited and the Standard Services, Hisar, to pay Rs 8,200 to a complainant.

Dismissing the appeal filed by the Punjab Tractors Limited against the orders of the forum, the commission, in its orders, observed that in view of facts and circumstances of the case, it was of the opinion that not only the dealer, but both Punjab Tractors Limited and Standard Services were liable to make a payment of Rs 8,200 along with costs, as ordered by the forum. The complainant, Saroj Devi, purchased a Swaraj tractor from the Standard Services on April 25, 2000, by paying Rs 1,98,000.

The dealer, to increase the sale of tractors and attract more customers, had floated a gift scheme, according to which a customer was entitled to get a 20-inch colour television as a gift on purchasing a tractor between March 6, 2000, and April 30, 2000.

The dealer told Saroj that televisions had not been received from the company and as soon as the stock was received, it would be delivered to her.

Thereafter, she had made repeated visits and requested them to deliver the television, but all in vain. Hence, alleging deficiency in service and unfair trade practice, she had filed the complaint.

However, the dealer claimed that the complainant was asked to collect the television on May 16, 2000. She came the same day and got a cash discount of Rs 8,200 in lieu of the television.

The company, Punjab Tractors Limited, had stated that it had never floated any gift scheme of a colour television on the purchase of a tractor and so there was no cause to file a complaint.
