Amarnath Goud was considering a writ petition filed by director of a company and his relative alleging that the officials while conducting raid physically assaulted them. The department denied these allegations and submitted before the court that it was the petitioners and their employees who had obstructed the search operations and allegedly assaulted the Referring to Out patient Discharge advice of Hospital given after treatment of one of the petitioners, the court noted that he was injured to such a degree that he was unable to walk and required medical treatment. The court observed that the officials cannot claim any liberty to torture or use physical violence during the course of search, investigation or interrogation under the CGST Act, 2017 against persons suspected of tax evasion like the petitioners or their employees. It said:No provision of any law is cited before us by the respondents to say that they are entitled to use physical violence against persons they suspect of being guilty of tax evasion while discharging their duties under the CGST Act, 2017.. Merely because the authorities under the CGST Act, 2017 are not to be treated as police officials, they cannot claim any immunity if they indulge in acts of physical violence against persons they suspect of being guilty of tax evasion.  After India adopted the Constitution of India, protection against torture by State actors has been recognized as part of right to life and liberty guaranteed by Art.21 of the Constitution of India.The court said that the possibility of the use of violence by officials against the petitioners and the other employees  cannot be entirely ruled out. The bench therefore issued some directions and also said that the petitioners and their employees shall be examined in the visible range of their counsel, though not in hearing range.Case: M/S.

Maine Utility Drops Bid for Solar Charges

first_imgEnvironmental group objects to planOne group that did not sign proposed settlement, which is called a “stipulation,” was Environment Northeast. It said the settlement would unfairly penalize customers who have taken steps to decrease their use of electricity.In a letter to the PUC, Environment Northeast Senior Attorney Beth Nagusky said the group was “very pleased” with the stipulation’s attempt to “decouple” utility profits from electricity sales.“However,” Nagusky added, “we have serious concerns with some of the rate design changes adopted in the Stipulation, particularly the increase in the fixed customer charge (and the concomitant reduction in the volumetric per kWh charge) for the residential customer class.”While increasing the fixed customer charge, the settlement also reduces the amount of electricity included with the minimum charge, from 100 kWh to 50 kWh per month.“The proposed rate design changes will result in the most dramatic bill increases (13% to 25%) for the below average users, which includes those who have taken action in their homes to reduce electric demand by conserving and purchasing more efficient lights and appliances,” the letter said. “The changes will also disadvantage customers who have installed distributed generation to reduce their demand on the grid, including at system peaks. These customers will pay higher bills regardless of their decrease in consumption of kWhs from the grid.”By shifting more revenue to fixed charges, as opposed to volumetric charges, the agreement “sends the wrong price signal to ratepayers,” Nagusky said, and reduces the incentive to conserve. She said that if the PUC decides to accept the stipulation, it should at least make the amount of power included with the minimum charge 100 kWh.Agnes Gormley, senior counsel in the Maine public advocate’s office, said the $3 increase is based on an average Maine customer who uses 525 kWh of electricity per month. Maine’s largest electric utility has agreed to a new rate plan that would add $3 to an average residential power bill while dropping a controversial proposal to charge homeowners with photovoltaic (PV) arrays a monthly “standby rate.”Maine is one of many states wrestling with the impact of rooftop PV and small-scale wind projects — what’s called “distributed generation” — on utility earnings. Central Maine Power, with more than 500,000 residential customers, had sought approval for a new rate plan that would have added about $13 to the monthly bill of a residential customer with a grid-tied solar array.The utility, a U.S. subsidiary of a Spanish holding company, had argued the standby rate would help spread the costs of maintaining the grid evenly among its customers. Solar advocates protested.But as reported by The Portland Press Herald, a rate settlement agreement filed with the Public Utilities Commission in early July scraps the standby rate.The PUC must still vote to accept the plan.Major parties to the rate case, including both business and environmental interests, have agreed to the plan, the newspaper said, as has the state’s public advocate office. The settlement agreement caps months of private talks in the 14-month-old rate case.last_img read more

a month agoKlopp admits Liverpool unlikely to break Man City record

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Klopp admits Liverpool unlikely to break Man City recordby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveJurgen Klopp thinks it is unlikely Liverpool will break Manchester City’s record for most consecutive Premier League wins.The Reds made 16 with the win over Sheffield United on Saturday, two shy of City’s record of 18.Asked about the possibility of winning 18 straight games, he said: “(There are) interesting games coming up. It doesn’t sound too likely. But we will try and first and foremost Salzburg and then Leicester.”Then it is the international break and hopefully everybody comes back healthy. That is most important.Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will play against each other in Singapore, very interesting game obviously, it’s not qualification for anything. So hopefully everyone comes back healthy and then we try to prepare for Man United.”He added: “I try to understand how other people think about things but from the way I think about things I’m not interested in the number to be honest. It’s just a number.”So, you only can create a streak like this if you’re always in the next job. The next job is Salzburg which is a different competition and then Leicester City and that will be difficult.” last_img read more
