Directions were solicited from the Court for payment of interim compensation to them also from the concerned builders i.e. Holy Faith Builders & Developers and Jain Housing & Constructions Ltd. for a sum of Rs.1,11,70,754/- and Rs.3,61,79,646/- respectively.Senior Counsel Mr. V. Chitambaresh, appearing on behalf of two persons also submitted that they are from amongst the 13 persons who have paid full price as home buyers and possession has also been given to them on 01.02.2015 and 20.12.2013, even though only an agreement for sale had been executed and the sale deed has not been registered. He prayed that they should not be excluded from being awarded interim compensation also.”We are of the considered opinion that once it has been established that the aforesaid 13 home buyers have in fact made payments to the two builders, they are also entitled to interim compensation and cannot be deprived merely for the reason that no sale deed had been executed, the facts not being in dispute”, said the bench.The bench clarified that the value of the compensation claimed by these 13 persons, has to be determined without taking into account the proportionate value of the land.It may be recalled that a Committee was constituted, headed by Justice (Retd.) K. Balakrishnan Nair, in order to look after the payment of the amount to each of the flat owners, as well as to work out the actual amount paid.On Tuesday, the bench observed that the Committee while dealing with the claim of home buyers whether the proportionate cost of the land should also be included in the value stated to have been paid to the builder, in the relevant extract, has observed as follows:”We think that this point may be clarified by the Hon’ble Supreme Court – whether we should include the value of land shown to have been paid to the builder and also acknowledged by the builder as having been received, in the amount actually paid by the claimants. In view of the opposition by most of the Flat Owners to receive back today the price of the undivided share of land that they paid 7-12 years ago, we exclude the land value from the amount payable by the builder to the Flat Owners for the time being.”In this behalf, the bench was of the considered opinion that, specially in absence of any consensus amongst the home buyers themselves, with the majority opinion in favour of detaining the lands, the issue cannot be decided in the present proceed- ings. “The aggrieved are at liberty to take appropriate proceedings”, said the bench.The bench clarified that the value paid by a home buyer to the builder, therefore, has to be determined minus the proportionate value of the land.BackgroundThe Supreme Court had in November last year directed the four developers in the Maradu flat demolition case to submit their written submissions pertaining to their proposal to deposit the interim compensation within a period of four weeks. A Bench of Justices RF Nariman, Krishna Murari and Aniruddha Bose heard the matter and warned the developers that this would be the last opportunity to deposit the money or else the Justice Balakrishnan Nair Committee would be empowered to sell the assets of the developers that had been attached. The Apex Court, on being informed by Senior Advocate Gopal Sankaranarayanan that the Committee sought for an amicus as personal attacks had been made against it on affidavit by the developers, appointed Advocate Gaurav Aggarwal to assist the Court and meet the Committee. The mandate of the Committee has also been extended till further orders.In today’s hearing, Justice Nariman issued a stern warning to the developers to place another proposal stipulating concrete methods of paying the compensation, or otherwise to face the course that would be followed by law. “We have read the latest report and it is clear that a balance somehow has to be paid by all of you. All of the assets at this moment stand attached. Keeping Jain apart, so far as the other three builders are concerned, at least two of gave some proposal to the Committee which was rejected.”The Court, after making this observation, also informed the Counsels present that the matter would now be taken up on one date in December and all the Counsels would be allowed to make their submissions, including the Contempt Petitioner. In the previous hearing, the Supreme Court had directed State of Kerala to file an Affidavit within three weeks, outlining the steps they had taken in pursuance of the 23rd September, 2019 order of the Supreme Court.In the 23.09.2019 Order, a Supreme Court Bench comprising of Justices Arun Mishra and S. Ravindra Bhat had noted that State of Kerala had no concrete plan carved out to undertake the demolition.Further, permission had not been obtained from KSCZMA to raise construction and “it is due to such violation and tortuous action, the entire environment is being degraded and coastal zones are being illegally occupied”.The Court further noted that rather than preventing the violations, the authorities were mobilizing public opinion and time had come “to hold them responsible for their active connivance in such activities of degrading the environment and violation of the coastal zone regulations etc”.Accordingly, the State of Kerala was directed to submit a concrete plan to prevent such violations in future and also to take action against the existing violators.”It is also to be put on record as to what course of action they propose against all such existing violators and how many such constructions exist at present in the State of Kerala which are in violation of the notification issued by the Coastal Regulation Zone Authority”.On 27.09.2019, the Supreme Court then directed the State Government to pay, out of its own funds, a sum of Rs. 25 lakhs to each of the flat owners who were being evicted, and that the amount would not be recoverable from the Builder/Promoter/ the persons/officials responsible for raising theClick Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Lash Joins IBEW Local 300 Staff

first_imgMatt Lash recently joined the staff of the South Burlington-based labor union as the director of marketing and business development. He comes to Local 300 after two years at the Barre Partnership, a nonprofit committed to revitalizing the Granite City’s downtown. A graduate of St. Michael’s College, Lash holds a bachelor of arts in journalism and mass communication with a minor in political science.”I am proud to come on board at Local 300.

Consumers say mobile apps are worth switching for

first_imgAlthough most consumers are remaining loyal to their financial institution (FI), the reasons cited by those who are switching are changing.According to SNL Financials’ early 2015 survey of nearly 5,000 smartphone users, just 11 percent admitted to changing their primary checking account to a new FI in the previous 12 months. This means 89 percent of consumers are demonstrating some degree of loyalty to their current FI.This was especially apparent for seniors (ages 67 and up) and baby boomers (ages 48 to 66), who switched at a rate of just 4 percent and 6 percent, respectively. Notably, rates were significantly higher for young adults ages 18 to 25 and 26 to 35, who switched at rates of 19 percent and 16 percent, respectively.The survey found consumers are increasingly giving consideration to an FI’s mobile application offering in deciding whether to switch. In fact, 26 percent of those who changed FIs did so in search of an improved mobile app experience. continue reading » 32SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

China warns of racism in Australia, issues travel warning as row escalates

first_imgSince Australian borders are closed to all non-essential inbound and outbound travellers because of the pandemic — with no date set for them to reopen — the advice from Beijing is largely symbolic.Australian Trade Minister Simon Birmingham told the ABC’s Radio National on Monday that there had been racist incidents.”But I think the idea that Australia, in any way, is an unsafe destination for visitors to come to is one that just does not stand up to scrutiny,” he said.The anti-discrimination commission in New South Wales — Australia’s most populous state — said last week that there had been an increase in enquiries related to the pandemic and racism against people of Asian backgrounds.The group said instances included people being bullied for wearing a face mask, spat at and harassed in public on their way to work, while they exercised or at the supermarket.Anti-Discrimination NSW said it had also heard from people who have experienced violent race-related acts like their car window being smashed and racist language written across cars and private property.The relationship between Beijing and Canberra has become increasingly troubled as China has become more assertive in flexing its growing military, economic and diplomatic power in the Asia-Pacific region.In response to calls for an independent inquiry into the origins of the pandemic, the Chinese ambassador in Canberra had threatened a widespread consumer boycott of Australian products — a warning followed up by a bar on imports from four major Australian beef producers.And then in May, China imposed an 80 percent tariff on Australian barley over dumping allegations, a move set to cost at least Aus$500 million (US$350 million) a year, according to five of the nation’s grain growers.An editorial published by the nationalist Chinese state-run Global Times warned the travel alert “may just be the tip of the iceberg”.”If Australia wants to retain the gain from its economic ties with China,” it said, “it must make a real change to its current stance on China, or it will completely lose the benefits of Chinese consumers.” China stepped up the war of words again last week by telling its citizens to avoid the country altogether over safety concerns.”Recently, there has been a lot of discrimination against Chinese and Asian people in Australia,” said foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying at a regular press briefing Monday.”Many Chinese in Australia have been insulted or even injured…[and] graffiti or words with racist connotations against Chinese have appeared in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and other Australian cities.”On Friday, China’s culture and tourism ministry had advised against travel to Australia due to increasing racism linked to the coronavirus. Topics :center_img Beijing warned Monday there has been “a lot of discrimination” against Chinese people in Australia, escalating a diplomatic row just days after telling its citizens not to travel there.Tensions between Australia and China have been mounting on a number of fronts, and Beijing reacted with fury to recent calls for an independent investigation into the origins and spread of the coronavirus pandemic after it first emerged in central China late last year.Read also: Australia, China tensions rise over coronavirus inquiry calllast_img read more

MISC Berhad Earns Less in 4th Quarter

first_imgzoom Malaysia International Shipping Corporation Berhad (MISC Berhad) has seen its group profit for the fourth quarter of 2016 plunge by 33 percent mainly due to lower operating profit from LNG, petroleum and heavy engineering business segments.The company’s net profit for the quarter ended December 31 stood at MYR 499,742, down from MYR 752,389 seen in the same quarter a year earlier, while group revenue slipped by 24 percent to MYR 2.5 billion, compared to the corresponding quarter’s revenue of MYR 3.3 billion. The decrease in revenue was mainly due to lower revenue in two business segments, namely, heavy engineering and LNG.Operating profit of MYR 666.6 million was lower than the profit of MYR 1 billion seen in the same quarter a year earlier, mainly driven by lower revenue and higher depreciation by MYR 118.7 million, following the change in estimated useful life of LNG and Petroleum vessels beginning January 2016.For the full year 2016, MISC Berhad reported a net profit of MYR 2.7 billion, up from MYR 2.5 billion seen in the previous year, while group revenue decreased by 12 percent to MYR 9.5 billion from MYR 10.9 billion recorded in the respective periods.“The year 2016 saw the global shipping industry undergoing another volatile year where businesses across the Oil & Gas supply chain suffered under very difficult market conditions. Despite the prevailing challenges in 2016, MISC once again proved its resilience by turning in commendable financial and operational performances,” Yee Yang Chien, MISC President/Group Chief Executive Officer, said.He added that MISC Berhad expects “no less than another challenging year ahead.”*MYR 1 = USD 0.22last_img read more
