Editorial :   NO   AMNESTY  to  Back Money  Launderers

–          CORPORATE CRIMINALS /  CORPORATE TERRORISTS /  TAX THIEVES  RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ILLS IN INDIA

In India , a small shop owner to big industrialist have mastered the art of TAX EVASION . their teachers – some corrupt tax officials & auditors. The black money thus created  is causing inflation, feeding the mafia , underworld. Some industrialists lobby ( bribe ) with the government & gets favourable laws enacted. This black money is the main source of funds for political parties , religious bodies & terrorist outfits.


The recent raids by C.B.I & KARNATAKA LOKAYUKTHA have proved how the tax officials have become multi-millionaires. The sad part is that some of the police officials who are on deputation to C.B.I & LOKAYUKTHA themselves are utterly corrupt.


This scourge can only be cured by corporate accountability intoto. However , all the industrialists , traders who are demanding for more flexible labour reforms , economic reforms , infrastructure , etc are not at all concerned about their own accountability with respect to tax , environment , other laws. The MNCs coming to India are not coming here for best Indian talents or infrastructure alone. In their own countries they are feeling the
heat of strict environment laws , consumer laws , share holder disclosures , corporate accountability. Some of these MNCs are being kicked out of their countries , by it’s own people .These MNCs are aware that in India , by greasing the palms environment laws , labour laws , tax laws , etc everything can be flouted , cases in courts can be dragged on for years . share holder disclosures , corporate transparency is minimum.

 

However when a concerned citizen complains about the crimes of guilty corporates , organizations or corrupt public servants , immediate action is not taken. The file is kept pending for months , years together  , allowing the criminals to manipulate all the evidences , records , ground situations. Finally even if action is taken guilty will be let out due to favorable  evidences , there are chances that the concerned citizen himself is falsely implicated & put behind bars . in all such cases all the involved parties must be subjected to lie detector tests .

 

Black Money & Crime are  inter twined , two faces of the same coin . Amnesty  must not be given to black money launderers , it is nothing  but legalizing the crimes of big criminals & crimes which are sources of black money. Thereby , government is giving legal sanction to those criminals  to commit more crimes to accumulate black money and  government itself is waiving off  it’s  duty  to  legally prosecute those  black money launderers for the crimes  which are  the sources of those ill gotten money. As per  the constitution , government must do it’s duty to uphold law , it cann’t waive off it’s own duties. If a government  cann’t do it’s duty , it must get out of the seat.

 Police , Government , Judges  spend  thousands  of rupees  public money to legally  prosecute a   small thief   caught for stealing  hundred rupees , where as now  letting out big time  looters who have stolen  millions  of rupees public money , who have earned money through swindling banks , share holders , earned money by illegal money lending , rowdyism , drug trafficking , human trafficking , etc.  It is against principle of equitable justice , law. If the government  is not able to   catch , prosecute these black money launderers , it is unfit to be in the  seat.

 

Bottomline : development is a must , it must be all around . but not at the cost of majority to make a few richer. Law  of  the  Land is  one  and  same for all Tom , Dick & Harry.

 Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

Your’s sincerely,

Nagaraja.M.R.

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.

To ,
Hon’ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship’s Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India.

 

The Humble petition of the   Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
“Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants.

2. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to RBI authorities since  years seeking justice regarding illegalities , irregularities  in  recruitment , currency handling , currency theft , etc @ RBI , they didn’t provide justice at all.

3. For a common man  it is a herculean task to get Rs.5000 loan from a  bank , but  rich & connected get lakhs , crores of rupees loan quite easily from banks , how ?

4. When a common man , farmer defaults to pay loan of few thousands of rupees bank immediately dispatches  loan recovery agents / Rowdies , seizes his property & auctions and recover their dues to last penny. Farmers are committing suicide unable to pay loans to escape from ignominy .

5. Huge companies get crores of rupees loan from banks eventhough basically the project report itself is at fault , not viable. Siphons off company  resources by insider trading to their sister concerns although bank representatives are very much their on the board of companies.

6 . Such companies default on loan dues to bank , but no recovery agents / rowdies are sent by banks. Finally the company becomes bust.

7. Bank looses money , the company  is declared as NON PERFORMING ASSET and government + bank  waives off interest or else loan itself.

8. End looser the public whose money went down the drain , profiteers – company promoters , executives and bank manager. No recovery from their personal , family properties why ?

9. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to RBI authorities , Union Finance Ministry  since  years seeking  information under RTI Act  regarding illegalities , irregularities  in RBI , Various banks , RBI Note Press ( BRBNMPL ) , etc , the  RBI authorities  have evaded answering our  questions  lest  the TRUTH come out. Supreme court of India specifically Chief Justice of India  were also approached to order RBI , Union Finance Ministry  to  disclose  information to us in public interest. But  SCI , CJI also failed to do their duties.

10. The money involved here is public money , it is nobody’s papa’s money.

11.  These  swindled monies are finding it’s way to under world , Mafia & Terror outfits. This proves  RBI  Governor , Union Finance Minister  and  Chief Justice of India  are  least  bothered to safe guard  PUBLIC MONEY. They are least bothered about our national security.

12. We have  offered  our conditional services to RBI , Union Finance Ministry & SCI  to apprehend  corporate criminals , to recover money while the  concerned officials have failed to do their duties. Till date  RBI , SCI , Government  have failed to respond to our offer.

13. We  SOS e Clarion of Dalit & SOS e Voice for Justice once again offer our conditional services to authorities , RBI , SCI  to legally apprehend corporate criminals , tax evaders &  corrupt bank executives  and to  recover monies from them.  Are RBI , SCI & Union Finance Ministry Ready to catch tax thieves , corporate criminals ,  corporate terrorists ?  Are  they ready to utilize our services ?

14. By , shielding corporate criminals  RBI , SCI , Union finance ministry  are  shielding  corporate criminals to continue financial aid to terrorist outfits , underworld & mafia. Thereby , RBI Governor  , Union Finance Minister  & CJI , Supreme Court of India have also become parties to those crimes , they themselves have become criminals.

15. These  Huge financial frauds , swindling for years  cann’t happen repeatedly for years  without  tacit understanding , cooperation , collusion , connivance  of RBI GOVERNOR and UNION FINANCE MINISTER. These crimes  are  spared from  fair , timely legal trials  with tacit support  of  Chief Justice of India.

16. These swindled money is destabilizing our economy , funding terrorist outfits , mafia & underworld. These are posing constant threat to our national security , integrity.

17. By financially supporting funding of criminals , terrorists RBI GOVERNOR ,  UNION FINANCE MINSTER & CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA themselves have become   anti nationals , criminals , terrorists.

2. Question(s) of Law:

Is it right for banks , government to let out fraudsters , bank  executives  without criminal prosecution  & recovery ?

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of master minds of financial frauds.

4-month window to declare black money opens on June 1: Jaitley

 

The four-month window for declaring domestic blackmoney will open on June 1 and those opting to come clean by paying 45 per cent tax and penalty will not be subject to scrutiny and enquiry by tax department.

The Income Declaration Scheme 2016 will remain in force till September 30 for filing of declarations and payments towards taxes, surcharge and penalty must be made latest by November 30, the Finance Ministry said in a release.

“No scrutiny and enquiry under the Income-tax Act or the Wealth tax Act (no abolished) shall be undertaken in respect of such declarations.

“Immunity from prosecution under the Income-tax Act and Wealth Tax Act is also provided along with immunity from the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act, 1988 subject to transfer of asset to actual owner within the period specified in the Rules,” it said.

The scheme was announced by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the Budget with an aim to fish out black money from the domestic economy. Earlier, the government had come out with similar scheme for Indian holding undisclosed income abroad.

The scheme will apply to undisclosed income whether in the form of investment in assets or otherwise, pertaining to Financial Year 2015-16 or earlier, the Ministry said.

“Under the Scheme, income as declared by the eligible persons, would be taxed at the rate of 30 per cent plus a ‘Krishi Kalyan Cess’ of 25 per cent on the taxes payable and a penalty at the rate of 25 per cent of the taxes payable, thereby totalling to 45 per cent of the income declared under the scheme,” the Ministry said.

 

 

 

INDIA`S BLACK MONEY IN SWISS BANK

 

This is not so surprising .India is the world`s most corrupt country.Corruption is not new in India.Recently due to international pressure, Swiss government agreed to disclose the names of the account holders only if the respective government formally asked for it.

Black money in Swiss banks  Swiss Banking Association report, 2006 details bank deposits in the territory of Switzerland by nationals of following countries:
Top five

India—- $1,456 billion
Russia —$ 470 billion
UK  ——-$390 billion
Ukraine – $100 billion
China —–$ 96 billion

India has more money in Swiss bank than all the other countries combined.Second best Russia has 4 times lesser deposit. US is not even there in the counting in top five.

609 people in India having legal property more than Rs- 100 crores (Rs- 10 Million). Indian President one day living cost is Rs-8 crore, living in a place where 350 flats.Oneday Indian Parliament running cost is around 9 crore Rupees.Britishers looted 350 Lakh Crore in 250 years whereas Indian himself looted 330 crore. 70 Lakh crore only deposited in swiss bank. 84000 corrupt people in India.India has around 450 Billion dollar of coal deposit & 170 billion of iron ore deposit,looted by state politicians .According to Indian Government around 1 Lakh place in India where people doing illegal mining.

Dishonest persons, scandalous politicians and corrupt IAS, IPS officers have deposited in foreign banks in their illegal personal accounts a sum of about $ 1500 billion, which have been misappropriated by them. From 2003 to 2010 out of 5,635 IPS officers fifty(50) IPS officers were resigned and joined private company.

This amount is about 13 times larger than the country’s foreign debt. With this amount 45 crore poor people can get Rs 1,00,000 each. This huge amount has been appropriated from the people of India by exploiting and betraying them.

Some 80,000 people travel to Switzerland every year, of whom 25,000 travel very frequently.“Obviously, these people won’t be  tourists.

Why our Indian Government is not asking to swiss Bank? Well the answer is simple , our Government is working under the influence of those politicians & industrialists who have huge deposit in Swiss bank.They cann`t expose their own people.

USA have settled their Swiss bank Account & their top Billionares in their countries paid to their country 50% of their Money which includes Gates & Bloomberg.Italy got 6.4 Billion dollar from swiss Bank,Germany got 5.7 Billion dollar from swiss Bank & France got 1.7 Billion dollar from swiss Bank.

Schweitzer Illustrierte, a Swiss news magazine,published on 19th November 1991, has alleged in an old issue that the Soviet intelligence agency KGB had deposited US $2.2 billion in a Swiss bank account in 1985 in the “minor” account of Rahul Gandhi managed by his mother Sonia Gandhi . Janata Party President Dr Subramanian Swamy, who had secured an order from the Delhi High Court to the CBI to investigate alleged receipt of slush money by late former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s family, has cited a November 1991 issue of the Swiss magazine in support of his charge.He has further claimed that the payments were authorized by CPSU by a resolution CPSU/CC/No 11228/3 dated 20/12/1985 and the same was also endorsed by the USSR Council of Ministers in Directive No 2633/Rs dated 20/12/1985. He also claimed that these payments had been coming since 1971 as the payments received by Sonia Gandhi’s family “have been audited in CPSU/CC resolution No 11187/22 OP dated 10/12/1984.   Reference:–http://swissprivacy.tripod.com/id8.html

Why Government is not taking action on corrupt peoples ? Why CBI is not independently working? well answer is simple ,Government is taking lots of money in the name of party fund and also taking help from those politicians who are involved in
criminal charges.Whole police in India is working under politicians.  According to RBI(Reserve Bank Of India) Rupees 17,18,826 crore notes print in India between  year 2000-2010. Rupees 10 Lakh Crore money incirculation in India. Generally 2-3 % of  GDP money circulation in other countries. But Indian Government has allowed  four Swiss bank  &  Eight Bank of Italy in India.

Sources says that NGO is also engaged in converting black money into white Money.

swiss bank(ubs) revealed 6000 USA people names . In may 2008 Germany bank revealed 28 people names but government is still hiding their names. Even the Supreme court of India asked for names three times. But Government only make deal with 23 countries of Double Taxation.
                                 USA got his money, France , Italy , countries like Singapore fought and get their money.India has more than 3.5 crore taxpayers. Black Money can be used by terrorists. Probably they are trying to move money to other countries or will invest in real-estate like in dubai or arab countries.After huge pressure from media & civil society Government has joined FATA (Financial Action Task Force) group only to delay issue.

Highly placed sources in New Delhi and Mumbai say much of the money held in Swiss banks, and other tax havens like the Bahamas, have been routed into the Indian stock exchanges throughParticipatory Note (PN) bought in Mauritius through front companies. Since these instruments are not registered to trade in Indian domestic capital markets, the investors’ names remain undisclosed. “The route to take out the money is hawala and to bring it back is Participatory Note ,” says Hemen Kapadia, one of Mumbai’s top stock market analysts. Roughly 50-60 percent of FII investments, aggregating $85 billion till late 2009, were made through the Participatory Note route. And according to Kapadia, this route saw 75 percent traffic in the last few months. A worried market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is now learnt to have asked several FIIs to furnish details of the Participatory Note issued to their clients, but it has been consistently stonewalled. “They will always win by citing client confidentiality agreements, and I doubt whether SEBI has the necessary legal teeth to probe further,” Kapadia points out.

FII investment in Indian stocks this year touched a record $18.13 billion ( Rs.82,360 crore), according to the SEBI website. In dollar terms the previous high was in 2007 ($17.65 billion) and in rupee terms in 2009. Stock market analysts say FII investment in rupee terms is lower because of appreciation in the Indian currency against the dollar. The Sensex last year gained over 80 percent — a figure it is likely to surpass this year.

Not taking into account the recently concluded Coal India IPO, the FII bids amounted to Rs. 1.20 lakh crore. Some foreign entities that have placed large bids for Coal India through PNs include Citibank ($1 billion), Merrill Lynch ($2 billion) and Deutsche Bank ($3 billion). The Qualified Institutional Buyer (QIB) quota in the Coal India IPO that was oversubscribed 24 times was primarily due to intense FII interest.

In fact, in 2007, when the then National Security Adviser MK Narayanan had spoken of terror funds routinely penetrating and manipulating the markets, he was hinting at PNs. Earlier, the RBI too had come out with a report expressing concern over the illegal traffic. At that time 89 percent of the funds invested by FIIs had come through the PN route, RBI data showed.According to recent estimates, roughly $200 billion — four times the external debt of Pakistan — is stashed away in Swiss banks and is now being withdrawn.

“A major area of vulnerability for us is the high consolidated public-debt to GDP ratio of over 70 percent … (and) consolidated fiscal deficit,” says the Governor of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Mr. Yaga Venugopal Reddy.

According to CIA world fact book, the Current account balance of India is MINUS -37,510,000,000 (minus) while China is the wealthiest country in the world with $ 426,100,000,000 (Plus) . India listed as 182 and China as no.1 . Money inflow in India is currently Rs 7,000 crore.

Sources say that NGO is the main source of Black Money in India.
http://www.hindustantimes.com/833-NGOs-blacklisted-for-misappropriation-of-funds/H1-Article1-488589.aspx

The GFI report says, “From 1948 through 2008, India lost a total of $213 billion in illicit financial flows (or illegal capital flight). These illicit financial flows were generally the product of corruption, bribery and kickbacks, and criminal activities.” The total of $213 billion is a misleading figure because “the present value of India’s illicit financial flows is at least $462 billion,” the GFIreport explains, adding, “This is based on the short-term US Treasury bill rate as a proxy for the rate of return on assets.” The GFI (Global Financial Integrity) report points out that the “total capital flight represents approximately 16.6 percent of India’s GDP as of year-end 2008”; that “illicit financial flows out of India grew at 11.5 per cent per year”; and, that “India lost $16 billion per year between 2002-2006”.The present value of illicit assets held abroad ($462 billion) “accounts for approximately 72 per cent of India’s underground economy — which has been estimated to account for 50 per cent of India’s GDP ($640 billion at the end of 2008)”. Just above a quarter of illicit assets are helddomestically.The fact that deposits in tax havens have increased from 36.4 per cent of illicit financial flows in 1995 to 54.2 per cent in 2009 tells its own story.

Well if Swiss Bank cann`t give information to India then why Indian Government is not stopping money that they are coming from outside India. But how can a corrupt system do?

We need to start a movement to pressurize the government to do so !! this is perhaps the only way, and a golden opportunity, to expose the high and mighty and weed out corruption !!

Is India poor, who says? Ask Swiss banks With personal account deposit bank of $1500 billion in foreign reserve which have been misappropriated, an amount 13 times larger than the country’s foreign debt, one needs to rethink if India is a poor  country?.

 

 

$181 billion Indian black money in tax havens?

 

Between six and seven trillion dollars worth of black wealth lies hidden in tax havens across the world, according to a fresh estimate by a trio of senior economists from the Bank of Italy. Indians’ share in this is estimated at $152-181 billion, by one calculation. This is only wealth invested in shares and debt securities or held in bank deposits. It is impossible to get a handle on other wealth invested in physical assets like real estate, gold or art.

Released this week, these estimates follow the train of several such estimates in recent years with Gabriel Zucman, of London School of Economics, estimating it at $7.6 trillion, Boston Consulting Group at $8.9 trillion and Tax Justice Network at $21 trillion.

All of this wealth is held in tax havens, which are jurisdictions with weak regulations and strong secrecy laws, using shell companies to conceal original identities. The Italian economists analysed data from IMF and the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) to arrive at the figure.

 

When asked by TOI to estimate the Indian share in this gigantic treasure trove, the researchers were cautious.

There can be two ways of doing this, they told TOI via email. One is to assume that the Indian share in this global hidden wealth was simply the same as India’s share in global GDP, that is, about 2.5% in 2013, the year for which this data pertains. By this measure, the Indian share of hidden wealth is $152-181 billion. That’s about Rs 8.9 to 10.5 lakh crore.

 
Another way of finding out the Indian share of undeclared assets is to look at the Indian share in actual declared portfolio assets—about 0.07% of the total—and assume that the same is valid for hidden assets. By this way, India’s share in black assets works out to $4-5 billion or about Rs 25,000-30,000 crore.

 

These figures for India are just indicative and the three economists — Pellegrini, Sanelli and Tosti — were insistent that they “have to be considered with great care and in no way can represent firm data”. But, having said that, there is no other way of getting even a glimpse of the secret stockpile of wealth stashed away abroad by Indians. So, as a ballpark figure, it does give a hint of what lies buried.

 
Why is there a big discrepancy between the two methods of calculating India’s hidden wealth in tax havens? As the Italian researchers explained, Indians seem to have a much lower propensity for investing in foreign financial assets — that’s why their share in global offshore financial assets, as calculated from IMF data, is a puny 0.07%. But will this reluctance extend to secret investments too? Nobody knows.

 

In all probability, Indian share in foreign black money is somewhere between the two estimates computed above. This is supported by estimates of offshore wealth growth by various agencies. In the Global Wealth 2015 Report, the Boston Consulting Group says that shares of offshore wealth from Middle East and Africa region, Latin America and Asia Pacific were higher than Western Europe and North America, although it also points out that Asia-Pacific contribution is not so high.

 

 

Panama Papers: Global tax evaders list belittles PM Narendra Modi’s 90-day black money hunt

 

 

An investigation by an international media consortium, including the Indian Express, has unearthed several names of wealthy individuals across the world, who have hidden their money in holding companies set up in tax havens.

The Indians named in the list include actors Amitabh Bachhan, Aishwarya Rai Bachhan, DLF promoter KP Singh, Indiabulls owner Sameer Gehlaut, Gautam Adani’s elder brother Vinod Adani and politicians and former chief of the Delhi unit of Loksatta Party, Anurag Kejriwal. These individuals, and in some cases their family members, have formed offshore entities in tax havens by paying to a Panama-based law firm, Mossack Fonseca. This is the case in a nutshell.

 

Now, the obvious question is this. Is it illegal to invest in offshore companies if the earnings are legitimate? No. It is not. But, the problem arises if the money is earned in a jurisdiction, where they are liable to pay taxes, and the money is transferred across the border without doing so. In this case, this becomes ‘unaccounted wealth’ or what is informally known as ‘black money’.

In other words, if the individuals mentioned in the Panama list are able to prove that the money invested in these offshore entities is legitimate and already taxed, there are no issues. Else, they can be in serious trouble.

The Narendra Modi-government is under tremendous pressure to win back black money from abroad to fulfill its poll promises in the run up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. A 90-days black money window it announced last year yielded undisclosed foreign assets of only about Rs 3,770 crore from 638 declarations, a mere fraction of the total stock of blackmoney believed to be stashed abroad. In other words, the scheme was largely a flop show. Under the window, those with unaccounted foreign black money had to pay a tax of 30 percent and a penalty of another 30 percent to come clean.

It is important to note that the Panama list also shows the apparent failure of the the 90-days black money window offered last year to draw foreign blackmoney holders. The fate of the 90-day black money scheme was not too hard to anticipate since no one with ill-gotten wealth or unaccounted wealth would want to sacrifice 60 percent of their money to comply with the government regulations. They would find a way out by the time the arms of the law reach their bank lockers in tax havens.

When the window closed, finance minister, Arun Jaitley had warned in tough words that it will not leave any stone unturned to take action against the guilty. “Those who chose to declare between this period would not be prosecuted under the new black money law… These declarants can now sleep well.” Jaitley said, adding, “those with illegal assets abroad, who have failed to make declaration, would now stand the risk of information relating to them eventually reaching the Indian taxation authorities.”

It is not known whether any individuals whose names are included in the Panama list are among the declarants of the 90-days black money window that expired on 30 September, 2015. If they aren’t and if investigations find that they are indeed tax-evaders, its time for Jaitley to do what he said he would do. This isn’t the first time the list of black money holders surfaces in the media. In a similar investigation, a list of 1100 Indians with Swiss bank deposits was unearthed setting stage for larger debate on the black money issue.

The Modi-government has not made any significant progress on the black money hunt as it promised in the beginning, in terms of recovering money. But, it has indeed initiated efforts to do so. Not just foreign black money, the government is facing equal challenges to deal with the domestic black money holders as well.

 

 

This is also a time when Jaitley, in the Union Budget 2016, announced that a four month (June 1 to September 30, 2016) amnesty-like scheme will be given to domestic black money holders in India to disclose their illegal, unaccounted wealth by paying a total of 45 percent tax. Jaitley hasn’t called it an amnesty, but in principle, it is nothing but an amnesty offered to the tax-evaders. In 1997 when P Chidambaram was Finance Minister, a similar exercise had garnered Rs 10,000 crore revenue to the exchequer.

Besides that, after the Narendra Modi-government came to power, it announced a 90-days amnesty-like window for foreign blackmoney holders charging them 60 percent tax. A total of Rs 4,147 crore of undeclared wealth was declared and the government garnered Rs 2,500 crore from the whole exercise, again a paltry sum considering the kind of blackmoney stashed abroad.

In India, political promise of action against black money is not a convincing one since many of the political parties themselves thrive on funding from the same black money holders. The lack of transparency and the give-and-take relationship between politicians and corporations/wealthy individuals makes it even more difficult to cleanse the system and undertake action against the offenders.

The important question that the Panama list brings to the table is this: Can the Modi-government initiate meaningful action against the offenders by investigating their foreign holdings and, thus, show its seriousness on the black money hunt?

 

Indian black money deposits moved out of Switzerland

 

The Swiss National Bank, the country’s central banking authority, has estimated the funds currently held by Indians in Swiss banks at a mere $1.98 billion.

Fear of disclosure due to greater scrutiny of this illicit wealth has played the main role in the flight of capital. Rashme Sehgal reports from Geneva for Rediff.com

 

Narendra Modi had promised that on becoming prime minister he would ensure that Indian black money stashed in Swiss bank vaults would make its way back to India and every Indian would receive a bonanza of Rs 15 lakh (Rs 1.5 million).

Fifteen months have passed into his prime ministership and there are no signs of any undeclared assets having reached Indian shores. Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah has tried to pass off Modi’s promise as being little more than an ‘election jhumla.’

Banking experts in Switzerland point out that the Rs 15 lakh figure for 1.2 billion Indians is untenable since most of the black money Indians had deposited in Swiss banks was cleared out during the last decade.

As per the latest data, the amount held by Indians through fiduciaries in Swiss banks has reached a record low level, while it used to be in the billions of dollars till about seven years ago.

“The figures of Rs 15 lakh would have worked out to several times India’s present GDP,” a senior Geneva-based tax consultant points out. “Switzerland never saw such massive deposits from any country.”

“More than half the undeclared money from India has been moved to Dubai and Singapore where it could have been invested in real estate, gold or re-entered India through the hawalaroute,” says lawyer Nathalie Bersier, a consultant for Swiss investments in India and vice versa.

“I do not know how Modi made such a remark. The Manmohan Singh government also talked about huge amounts of undeclared Indian money,” Bersier adds, “but the truth is that most of the money has moved out in the last decade.”.

The Swiss National Bank, the country’s central banking authority, according to data released last year, has estimated the funds currently held by Indians in Swiss banks at a mere $1.98 billion.

Fear of disclosure due to greater scrutiny of this illicit wealth has played the main role in the flight of capital.

Contesting the large black money amounts being mentioned in Indian newspapers, Bersier says, “In Switzerland, the perception is that the Indian assets vary between $900 million and $4 billion. I believe the amount would be somewhere in between.”

While Indian deposits may have shown a steady decline, the money held in Swiss banks by foreign depositors rose during 2014 to $1.6 trillion or Rs 103 lakh crore from about Rs 90 lakh crore at the end of 2013.

“From 2009, the Indian government has been highlighting this issue of black money without realising that the easiest thing to do is to close a bank account and transfer the money out,” says Bersier.

“Such a flight of capital has already occurred. Many of these deposits are known to have belonged to politicians which is why no government is forthcoming with the names of the depositors,” she adds.

Her belief is buttressed by the release of data from the Zurich-based Swiss National Bank confirming this trend. As per its latest data, the total Indian deposits held in Swiss banks at the end of 2014 included 1,776 million Swiss francs or Rs 12,350 crore (Rs 123.50 billion) held directly by Indian individuals and entities (down from 1,952 million Swiss francs a year ago), and another 38 million Swiss franc (down from 77.3 million Swiss francs at the end of 2013) through ‘fiduciaries’ or wealth managers.

State secretary for International Financial Matters Jacques de Watteville refused to hazard a guess about just how much money has been moved out of Swiss banks to be invested in Dubai or Singapore. “There are no official on the assets transferred out of Switzerland,” says Watteville.

Asked about the Indian names published in the Swiss Federal Gazette, Watteville says, “The publication of names of Indian account holders in the Swiss Federal Gazette is an internal Swiss legal procedure. Names are only published in the Federal Gazette as a last resort when there is no contact address in Switzerland for foreign residents who are affected by an administrative assistance request. The mere fact to have a name published does not prejudge the legal position of the person concerned.”

Does India need to establish a scheme to regularise offshore assets? “Our understanding is that the Indian government recently opened a ‘compliance window’ for taxpayers to regularise their situation,” says Watteville, referring to the government scheme whereby tax evaders can pay a penalty of 20 percent and get their black money regularised.

“Banking circles are aware that undeclared assets by Indians has been moved out,” says Nicolas Stepczynski, a Geneva-based banker and tax consultant with Berger Van Berchem et Cie. “Rich Indian families are already under great scrutiny by their government and therefore known to be very careful with their finances.”

Will the famed secrecy wall of Switzerland’s banking system finally show cracks? The Swiss Federal Council, Switzerland’s highest executive authority, recently declared that it is holding consultations with the Tax Administrative Assistance Act to ease practises with regard to stolen data.

For the present, Switzerland has refused to acknowledge leaked data as was the case of 600 Indian depositors at HSBC whose names were leaked by whistleblower Herve Falciani in 2006.

Falciani gave the list to the French government — who provided the information to the Indian government — rather than to the Swiss government because he felt it would not have investigated the matter further.

Bersier does not see too much emerging from the Federal Council consultations. “They are at a very early stage. Discussions have been held between the Swiss and Indian governments on the need to detect, recover and repatriate illegal deposits, but all the information available with the Indian government is based on stolen documents.”

“The key issue is what pressure the Indian government can exert on the Swiss government,” says Bersier. “The US threatened to close all Swiss banks operating in the US which led to the Swiss immediately signing a treaty with the US and UK. There are no Swiss banks operating in India.”

On the subject of the Automatic Exchange of Information between the Swiss and Indian governments expected to be operationalised by 2018, Bersier is equally cynical.

Erecting the AEOI platform is all very well, she feels, but it is too little too late. “By the time it becomes operational,” Bersier says, “all the illegal deposits will have been moved out. There are any number of countries where this money can be moved to.”

India has set up a Special Investigation Team headed by Justice B M Shah to look into the issue of black money. Justice Shah has welcomed the Swiss Federal Council’s approval of the bill to amend its laws to allow its government to share information with countries on the basis on what is perceived to be stolen data.

Detection and recovery of black money in foreign tax havens is a key concern of the Modi government.

 

India cites UN convention to help unearth black money

 

As Indian agencies look to bring back black money and ‘proceeds of crime’ stashed by individuals and companies in tax havens, the Narendra Modi government has drawn the attention of world leaders, including British Prime Minister David Cameron, to the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) which says that countries should extend cooperation in giving information on stolen or unaccounted assets.

India also pointed to the leaders and their representatives that nations should not hide behind bank secrecy laws when it comes to sharing information on “unaccounted money” lying in their banks and other financial institutions.

Representing India at the global Anti-Corruption Summit in London on May 11-12, central vigilance commissioner KV Chowdary , said, “Mr Prime Minister (David Cameron), India would like to stress that as stated in Article 51, the return of assets is a fundamental principle of UNCAC, and states/ parties must afford one another widest measures of international cooperation in facilitating quick return of stolen assets, including unaccounted assets and particularly assets in safe havens, to the countries of origin.”

Chowdary was accompanied by Enforcement Directorate chief Karnal Singh for the summit.

He said India will support the reporting on “tax information for large multinational enterprises” and that “India will take steps required for preventing corruption in government, its institutions and in businesses”. “We are also committed on the issue of return of unaccounted wealth from safe havens and for persistent and consistent efforts on asset recovery,” he said.

India’s statement in the summit said, “As advised by G20 and endorsed by the Doha declaration adopted at the 13th UN Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, India advocates the extending of all assistance to the requesting States in identification, tracing, freezing, seizure, recovery and repatriation of assets.” “We firmly advocate that all State Parties should ensure cooperation in dissemination of information without any impediment of bank secrecy laws, to the requesting country,” said the statement.

 

Global Tax Havens or Havens For Dirty Money

By Abdus Sattar Ghazali

 

Gabriel Zucman, the author of the 2015 book “The Hidden Wealth of Nations: The Scourge of Tax Havens,” estimates that $7.6 trillion is stashed in tax havens. This amounts to 8 percent of the world’s personal financial wealth. The author believes that if all of this illegally hidden money were properly recorded and taxed, global tax revenues would grow by more than $200 billion a year.

Interestingly, on April 3, 2016, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, leaked massive documents known as “Panama Papers” which reveal the shadowy world of hidden offshore finances of presidents and prime ministers. The biggest leak of financial data in history exposes the offshore holdings of 12 current and former world leaders and provides details of the hidden financial dealings of 128 more politicians and public officials around the world.

The German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ), which worked on the leaked documents with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, said the data provides rare insights into a world that can only exist in the shadows. It proves how a global industry led by major banks, legal firms, and asset management companies secretly manages the estates of the world’s rich and famous: from politicians, FIFA officials, fraudsters and drug smugglers, to celebrities and professional athletes.

According to The Guardian, the Panama Papers are an unprecedented leak of 11.5m files from the database of the world’s fourth biggest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca. The documents show the myriad ways in which the rich can exploit secretive offshore tax regimes. The massive leak of confidential documents from a Panamanian law firm has shown how some of the world’s richest people hide assets to avoid paying taxes.

Among national leaders with offshore wealth are Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan’s prime minister; Ayad Allawi, ex-interim prime minister and former vice-president of Iraq; Petro Poroshenko, president of Ukraine; Alaa Mubarak, son of Egypt’s former president; and the prime minister of Iceland, Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has formed a high-level judicial commission to probe any financial wrongdoing, a day after three of his children were named in the ‘Panama Papers’ for owning offshore companies prompting demands for an enquiry by the opposition. Documents on the ICIJ website said Sharif’s children – Mariam, Hasan and Hussain – “were owners or had the right to authorize transactions for several companies”. Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s relatives Samina Durrani and Ilyas Mehraj have also figured in the documents examined.

Iceland’s prime minister, Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, became the first major casualty of the Panama Papers, stepping aside from his office amid mounting public outrage that his family had sheltered money offshore.

A $2bn trail leads all the way to Vladimir Putin’s best friend Sergei Roldugin who is at the centre of a scheme in which money from Russian state banks is hidden offshore. A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin told The Guardian that the media investigation into offshore accounts is motivated by “Putinphobia,” and that he has not been implicated in any wrongdoing.

Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said “it’s obvious that the main target of such attacks is our president,” and claimed that the publication was aimed at influencing Russia’s stability and parliamentary elections scheduled for September. He suggested the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which co-ordinated the international investigation, has ties to the U.S. government.

Family members of at least eight current or former members of China’s Politburo Standing Committee, the country’s main ruling body, have offshore companies arranged though Mossack Fonseca. They include President Xi’s brother-in-law, who set up two British Virgin Islands companies in 2009. China’s foreign ministry dismissed reports of the leaks from the Mossack Fonseca database as ‘groundless accusations’. A Communist party censorship directive instructed news organizations to purge all reports, blogs, bulletin boards and comments relating to Panama Papers revelations.

Twenty-three individuals who have had sanctions imposed on them for supporting the regimes in North Korea, Zimbabwe, Russia, Iran and Syria have been clients of Mossack Fonseca. Their companies were harbored by the Seychelles, the British Virgin Islands, Panama and other jurisdictions.

Tax Havens

Jill Lawless of the Associated Press says there’s one part of the British Empire on which the sun still does not set: its tax havens. Britain’s former world dominance has left it with a string of tiny territories scattered around the globe, and many of them have become hubs for hiding money. Despite growing political pressure, shutting down these and other tax havens may be easier said than done, Jill said.

As Britain’s colonies gained independence after World War II, London encouraged several small Caribbean islands to become tax havens as a means to self-sufficiency. As a result, many of the world’s tax havens have British links, including overseas territories such as the British Virgin Islands, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. The Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey off the French coast, which are possessions of the British Crown, have been havens for the wealthy and their money for almost a century.

More than half the 200,000 companies set up for clients by Panamanian firm Mossack Fonseca in the leaked files are registered in the British Virgin Islands, a British overseas territory in the Caribbean.

According to the BBC two broad qualifications for being a tax haven are to have a low or zero rate of income tax and guarantee the rich a cloak of secrecy they would not receive in their own country. They have also been used to cover up criminal activity.

Since 2009, many attempts have been made to crack down on abuses. More than 700 tax transparency deals have been signed globally. Places including Switzerland, the Channel Islands and Luxembourg have tightened the rules, but Panama and the British Virgin Islands are among those criticized for not doing enough. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Group of 20 nations have persuaded more than 90 countries to share financial data in a bid to crack down on secret dealings.

Mossack Fonseca

The Panama Papers make it clear that major banks are big drivers behind the creation of hard-to-trace companies in the British Virgin Islands, Panama and other offshore havens. They list nearly 15,600 paper companies that banks set up for clients who want keep their finances under wraps, including thousands created by international giants UBS and HSBC.

Mossack Fonseca is one of the world’s top creators of shell companies, corporate structures that can be used to hide ownership of assets. The law firm’s leaked internal files contain information on 214,488 offshore entities connected to people in more than 200 countries and territories.

The offshore system relies on a sprawling global industry of bankers, lawyers, accountants and these go-betweens who work together to protect their clients’ secrets. These secrecy experts use anonymous companies, trusts and other paper entities to create complex structures that can be used to disguise the origins of dirty money.

The Mossack Fonseca law firm has worked closely with big banks and big law firms in places like The Netherlands, Mexico, the United States and Switzerland, helping clients move money or slash their tax bills, the secret records show.

Big U.S. firms hold $2.1 trillion overseas to avoid taxes

Not surprisingly, in October 2015, an economic study revealed that the 500 largest American companies hold more than $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore to avoid U.S. taxes and would collectively owe an estimated $620 billion in U.S. taxes if they repatriated the funds.

The study, by Citizens for Tax Justice and the U.S. Public Interest Research Group Education Fund, found that nearly three-quarters of the firms on the Fortune 500 list of biggest American companies by gross revenue operate tax haven subsidiaries in countries like Bermuda, Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

Apple was holding $181.1 billion offshore, more than any other U.S. company, and would owe an estimated $59.2 billion in U.S. taxes if it tried to bring the money back to the United States from its three overseas tax havens, the study said.

General Electric has booked $119 billion offshore in 18 tax havens, software firm Microsoft is holding $108.3 billion in five tax haven subsidiaries and drug company Pfizer is holding $74 billion in 151 subsidiaries, the study said.

“At least 358 companies, nearly 72 percent of the Fortune 500, operate subsidiaries in tax haven jurisdictions as of the end of 2014,” the study said. “All told these 358 companies maintain at least 7,622 tax haven subsidiaries.”

Fortune 500 companies hold more than $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore to avoid taxes, with just 30 of the firms accounting for $1.4 trillion of that amount, or 65 percent, the study found.

In September 2015, a U.S. federal judge authorized the Internal Revenue Service to seek the names of Americans using accounts at two Belize banks.

 

 

US Corporate Tax Cheats Hiding $1.4 Trillion In Profits In Offshore Accounts

By Patrick Martin

 

A report issued Thursday by the British charity Oxfam found that the 50 largest US corporations are hiding $1.4 trillion in profits in overseas accounts to avoid US income taxes, much of it in tax havens like Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.

The biggest tax dodger is technology giant Apple, with $181 billion held offshore. General Electric had the second-largest stash, at $119 billion, enough to repay four times over the $28 billion GE received in federal guarantees during the 2008 Wall Street crash. Microsoft had $108 billion in overseas accounts, with companies like Exxon Mobil, Pfizer, IBM, Cisco Systems, Google, Merck, and Johnson & Johnson rounding out the top ten.

Overseas tax havens have been the focus of recent revelations about tax scams by wealthy individuals, based on the leak of the “Panama Papers,” documents from a single Panama-based law firm, Mossack Fonseca, involving 214,000 offshore shell companies. The firm’s clients included 29 billionaires and 140 top politicians worldwide, among them a dozen heads of government.

But the sums involved in corporate tax scams dwarf those hidden away by individuals. According to the Oxfam report, the offshore manipulations by the 50 largest US corporations cost the US taxpayer $111 billion each year, while robbing another $100 billion annually from countries overseas, many of them desperately poor.

The $111 billion a year in US taxes evaded would be sufficient to eliminate 90 percent of child poverty in America, effectively wiping out that social scourge. It is more than the annual cost of the food stamp program, or unemployment benefits, or the total budget of the Department of Education.

Oxfam timed the release of its report for the April 15 income tax deadline in the United States (actually Monday, April 18 this year), when tens of millions of working people must file their income tax returns or face federal penalties. Working people could face additional tax penalties of up to 2 percent of household income, to a maximum of $975, under the Obamacare “individual mandate,” if they have not purchased private health insurance.

There is a stark contrast between the IRS hounding of working people for relatively small amounts of money—but difficult or impossible to pay for those on low incomes—and the green light given to corporate tax cheats who evade taxation on trillions in income.

 

“As Americans rush to finalize tax returns, multinational corporations that benefit from trillions in taxpayer-funded support are dodging billions in taxes,” said Raymond C. Offenheiser, President of Oxfam America. “The vast sums large companies stash in tax havens should be fighting poverty and rebuilding America’s infrastructure, not hidden offshore in Panama, Bahamas, or the Cayman Islands.”

The Oxfam report, titled “Broken at the Top,” expresses concern that “tax dodging by multinational corporations…contributes to dangerous inequality that is undermining our social fabric and hindering economic growth.”

It continues: “This inequality is fueled by an economic and political system that benefits the rich and powerful at the expense of the rest, causing the gains of economic growth over the last several decades to go disproportionately to the already wealthy. Among the most damning examples of this rigged system is the way large, profitable companies use offshore tax havens, and other aggressive and secretive methods, to dramatically lower their corporate tax rates in the United States and developing countries alike.”

Oxfam collected figures available from the 10-K reports and other financial documents issued by the 50 largest US companies, covering the period since the Wall Street crash, 2008 through 2014, and presented them in an interactive table. The figures included total profits, federal taxes paid, total US taxes paid (including state and local), lobbying expenses, tax breaks, money held in offshore accounts, and benefits received from the federal government, including loans, loan guarantees and bailouts.

Among the most important findings:

* The top 50 companies made nearly $4 trillion in profits globally, but paid only $412 billion in federal income tax, for an effective tax rate of barely 10 percent, compared to the statutory rate of 35 percent.

* The 50 companies spent $2.6 billion to influence the federal government, while reaping nearly $11.2 trillion in federal support, for an effective return of 400,000 percent on their lobbying expenses.

* The overseas cash stashed by the 50 companies, nearly $1.4 trillion, is larger than the Gross Domestic Product of Russia, Mexico, Spain or South Korea.

* US multinationals reported 43 percent of their foreign earnings from five tax havens, countries that accounted for only 4 percent of their foreign workforce and 7 percent of foreign investment. All told, US companies shifted between $500 billion and $700 billion in profits from countries where economic activity actually took place to countries where tax rates were low.

* In the year 2012 alone, US firms reported $80 billion in profits in Bermuda, more than their combined reported profits in the four largest economies (after the US itself): China, Japan, Germany and France. This figure was nearly 20 times the total GDP of the tiny island country.

The Oxfam report also pointed to an estimated $100 billion in taxes evaded in foreign countries, many of them rich in natural resources extracted by such global giants as Exxon, Chevron and Dow Chemical. According to the report, “Taxes paid, or unpaid, by multinational companies in poor countries can be the difference between life and death, poverty or opportunity. $100 billion is four times what the 47 least developed countries in the world spend on education for their 932 million citizens. $100 billion is equivalent to what it would cost to provide basic life-saving health services or safe water and sanitation to more than 2.2 billion people.”

The report cited former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s assessment that “Africa loses more money each year to tax dodging than it receives in international development assistance.”

Oxfam offered no solution to the growth of inequality and the systematic looting by big corporations that its report documents, except to urge governments around the world to close tax loopholes. The group also pleads with the corporate bosses themselves not to be quite so greedy. Neither capitalist governments nor the CEOs will pay the slightest attention. But the working class should take note of these figures, which provide ample evidence of the bankrupt and reactionary nature of capitalism, and the urgent necessity of building a mass movement, on a global scale, to put an end to the profit system.

 

Global Tax Havens or Havens For Dirty Money

By Abdus Sattar Ghazali

 

Gabriel Zucman, the author of the 2015 book “The Hidden Wealth of Nations: The Scourge of Tax Havens,” estimates that $7.6 trillion is stashed in tax havens. This amounts to 8 percent of the world’s personal financial wealth. The author believes that if all of this illegally hidden money were properly recorded and taxed, global tax revenues would grow by more than $200 billion a year.

Interestingly, on April 3, 2016, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, leaked massive documents known as “Panama Papers” which reveal the shadowy world of hidden offshore finances of presidents and prime ministers. The biggest leak of financial data in history exposes the offshore holdings of 12 current and former world leaders and provides details of the hidden financial dealings of 128 more politicians and public officials around the world.

The German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ), which worked on the leaked documents with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, said the data provides rare insights into a world that can only exist in the shadows. It proves how a global industry led by major banks, legal firms, and asset management companies secretly manages the estates of the world’s rich and famous: from politicians, FIFA officials, fraudsters and drug smugglers, to celebrities and professional athletes.

According to The Guardian, the Panama Papers are an unprecedented leak of 11.5m files from the database of the world’s fourth biggest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca. The documents show the myriad ways in which the rich can exploit secretive offshore tax regimes. The massive leak of confidential documents from a Panamanian law firm has shown how some of the world’s richest people hide assets to avoid paying taxes.

Among national leaders with offshore wealth are Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan’s prime minister; Ayad Allawi, ex-interim prime minister and former vice-president of Iraq; Petro Poroshenko, president of Ukraine; Alaa Mubarak, son of Egypt’s former president; and the prime minister of Iceland, Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has formed a high-level judicial commission to probe any financial wrongdoing, a day after three of his children were named in the ‘Panama Papers’ for owning offshore companies prompting demands for an enquiry by the opposition. Documents on the ICIJ website said Sharif’s children – Mariam, Hasan and Hussain – “were owners or had the right to authorize transactions for several companies”. Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s relatives Samina Durrani and Ilyas Mehraj have also figured in the documents examined.

Iceland’s prime minister, Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, became the first major casualty of the Panama Papers, stepping aside from his office amid mounting public outrage that his family had sheltered money offshore.

A $2bn trail leads all the way to Vladimir Putin’s best friend Sergei Roldugin who is at the centre of a scheme in which money from Russian state banks is hidden offshore. A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin told The Guardian that the media investigation into offshore accounts is motivated by “Putinphobia,” and that he has not been implicated in any wrongdoing.

Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said “it’s obvious that the main target of such attacks is our president,” and claimed that the publication was aimed at influencing Russia’s stability and parliamentary elections scheduled for September. He suggested the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which co-ordinated the international investigation, has ties to the U.S. government.

Family members of at least eight current or former members of China’s Politburo Standing Committee, the country’s main ruling body, have offshore companies arranged though Mossack Fonseca. They include President Xi’s brother-in-law, who set up two British Virgin Islands companies in 2009. China’s foreign ministry dismissed reports of the leaks from the Mossack Fonseca database as ‘groundless accusations’. A Communist party censorship directive instructed news organizations to purge all reports, blogs, bulletin boards and comments relating to Panama Papers revelations.

Twenty-three individuals who have had sanctions imposed on them for supporting the regimes in North Korea, Zimbabwe, Russia, Iran and Syria have been clients of Mossack Fonseca. Their companies were harbored by the Seychelles, the British Virgin Islands, Panama and other jurisdictions.

Tax Havens

Jill Lawless of the Associated Press says there’s one part of the British Empire on which the sun still does not set: its tax havens. Britain’s former world dominance has left it with a string of tiny territories scattered around the globe, and many of them have become hubs for hiding money. Despite growing political pressure, shutting down these and other tax havens may be easier said than done, Jill said.

As Britain’s colonies gained independence after World War II, London encouraged several small Caribbean islands to become tax havens as a means to self-sufficiency. As a result, many of the world’s tax havens have British links, including overseas territories such as the British Virgin Islands, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. The Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey off the French coast, which are possessions of the British Crown, have been havens for the wealthy and their money for almost a century.

More than half the 200,000 companies set up for clients by Panamanian firm Mossack Fonseca in the leaked files are registered in the British Virgin Islands, a British overseas territory in the Caribbean.

According to the BBC two broad qualifications for being a tax haven are to have a low or zero rate of income tax and guarantee the rich a cloak of secrecy they would not receive in their own country. They have also been used to cover up criminal activity.

Since 2009, many attempts have been made to crack down on abuses. More than 700 tax transparency deals have been signed globally.

Editorial :  Scams , Illegalities in  Trusts , CSR  Funds

   Trusts , Associations  are ideally formed , funded  by noble persons  to  work for achieving certain noble social objectives like education to deprived , health care to poor , etc. Ideally these trusts enjoy the faith , confidence of public and collect donations from them to achieve their stated objectives.

Of late , many NGOs , Trusts  are formed by  rich cunning people , corporate bodies solely to divert the black money. They lack accountability to the public , donors. Religious , charitable trusts  which are formed  to propagate religious preaching indulge in  business of establishing hi fi medical , engineering colleges earning donations to the tune of  millions of  rupees every year. Most of the financial transactions  of these trusts takes place by cash payments without proper documentation to by   pass legal scrutiny.

Many office bearers  / founders of these  trusts  treat  their trusts  as their personal fiefdoms and spend the resources of trust  for their personal hi fi lifestyles. Administrative expenses of these trusts are  much more than the expenses  made towards the  objectives of these trusts.  There are also possibilities of siphoning off money to illegal activities.

 

The tax exemptions given to these trusts by government are in essence a donation made by public exchequer  to the very same trust to the tune  of tax amount if enforced. Government also gives  land  at  concessional rates to these trusts , that subsidy amount is also a donation by public exchequer to the trust. So , naturally  functioning of  all religious , charitable , educational , political trusts must be brought under  the ambit of  RTI. A cap on administrative expenses of trusts must be enforced.  Office bearers of trusts  who violate  the  stated objectives of trusts must be  charged for public cheating & money must be recovered from them. Such trusts should be superseded and brought under the control of government.

Educational trusts that run professional colleges, primarily medical and engineering colleges, by collecting donations as high as Rs 1 crore have come under the Income-Tax (I-T) department’s scanner. The I-T department has raised Rs 100 crore in tax demand from some trusts in Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad and Bengaluru for irregularities and misusing tax benefits meant for charitable trusts. According to I-T sleuths, several institutions were surveyed in the last two months, and, in a few cases, searches were conducted as well. The findings of the survey have been sent to the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on black money. “The total amount of the scam is not yet quantified,” said an official directly involved with the operation. A large chunk of unaccounted money, accepted as donations, is used for personal benefits, and, of course, do not get declared. This results in the generation of black money,” said the official.

 

According to I-T officials, the operations were conducted mainly in Karnataka and Maharashtra (including Pune and Mumbai) that have clusters of universities and professional colleges. The action follows the government’s move to curb black money generation within the country. The finance ministry is of the view that the bulk of black money is still within India. A senior I-T official said, “Investigations have revealed that several trust-run educational institutions accept donations for admissions and deposit them in multiple bank accounts. In some cases, demand draft/bank challans were purchased in favour of the trust president, and they used multiple challans to keep the amounts low.”

“Nobody can object to charity or donations, but, at the same time, when large sums get donated, it rings an alarm bell unless the payments are made by account payee cheques with the donor’s name and Permanent Account Number,” a former DGIT told dna. “Some of these institutions are owned by big corporates and industrialists. In certain instances, it was found that trusts were created to divert funds,” said another official.

Discreet investigations have revealed that there were 3-4 intermediaries, and, quite often, office-bearers of these colleges accepted donations in cash. Admissions to under-graduate and post-graduate programmes were the main focal points for such acceptance of cash donations and done with the knowledge of the president of the trusts.

“There are at 3-4 intermediaries in the entire process – right from office-bearers to trustee owners. The main concern is that, in all cases, co-operative banks are being used to channelise donations. Henceforth, involvement of banks will also be investigated,” said an investigating officer. It has also been observed that many institutions do not specify the sources of income in their income statement and balance sheets.

In many cases, permissions were not taken from the appropriate authority for leasing out property for educational programmes. No plot or land can be leased out for any other purpose than education and without special permission from the leasing authority.

“In a few instances, the trustees have shown demand drafts received as donation from parents but we found that these drafts were from the same bank branch, indicating that they were breaking up cash into smaller drafts and depositing part of the donations back to the accounts maintained by the trust,” said I-T officials.

According to I-T sleuths, trustees created ‘proxy students’ who would take admissions under the government quota, only to be auctioned by the college to the highest bidder. This practice is rampant in private medical institutions. The income of a charitable trust is exempt from I-T, according to the provisions of Section 11, 12 and 13 of the I-T Act. However, to avail of this exemption, the activities of such trust/society should fall within the definition of ‘charitable purpose’.

It is often a topic of dispute among tax authorities whether high-end educational institutions, providing modern and state-of-the-art educational aid, should be allowed to undertake activities that are charitable or commercial in nature

 

 

Government seeks to tighten regulations for charitable trusts

 

The proposal will have implications for the way trusts claim tax exemptions and receive anonymous donations

 

Budget proposals to tighten the regulation of charitable trusts and institutions will have major implications for the way trusts currently claim tax exemptions and receive anonymous donations, experts said.

Aiming to prevent the abuse of tax exemptions, finance minister Arun Jaitley’s budget last week introduced provisions that seek to end the practice of trusts claiming double tax benefits, or tax exemption even when the income is not being used for charitable purposes. The budget also sought to make it easier for the tax department to cancel the registration of such trusts. And in an attempt to check money laundering, the government changed the tax treatment to discourage anonymous donations received by charitable institutions and trusts.

In December, the income tax department was hauled up by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India over the alleged misuse of tax exemptions by trusts, pointing to lapses in the registration process, allowance of exemptions during assessment, non-monitoring of surplus income accumulations and foreign contributions received by trusts. The national auditor had also named a number of trusts who it said were misusing tax exemption provisions.

Rahul Garg, leader, direct taxes at consulting firm PwC, said the budget proposals are aimed at enhancing the compliance and reporting requirements by these trusts and plug some of the loopholes in the current laws.

“There was a perception that the charitable institutions are able to indulge in tax evasion due to the varied interpretation of the existing laws. The amendments clearly spell out what the law is. It will also help in reducing litigation,” he said.

He added that the changes will also address fears of money laundering raised by the home ministry because of the way foreign funds were coming into some charitable institutions. According to the memorandum explaining provisions under the Finance Bill 2014, a registered trust or institution which avails the benefit of exemptions under a specific exemption provision in Section 11 of the Income Tax Act meant for charitable purposes, cannot simultaneously take benefit of the exemption provided under any other provision of the Act.

Also, provisions have been introduced to ensure that a trust which uses tax-exempt income for acquisition of assets, cannot claim double benefit by using a notional depreciation of such assets.

To be sure, Parliament has to pass the Finance Bill 2014 for it to become an Act.

Law firm Khaitan and Co. in a post-budget note, said the changes in regulations around charitable trusts and institutions are aimed at rationalizing the taxation regime and eliminating certain loopholes and ambiguities. The note pointed out that the powers of the commissioner of income tax to cancel the tax exemption certificate of an institution have also been widened.

A commissioner can cancel the registration certificate if the trust does not use funds to benefit the general public; or uses them for a particular religious community or caste; or if the income of the trust is used for the benefit of any trustees.

The government has also moved to amend provisions to discourage anonymous donations to universities, hospitals and other charitable organisations. At present, though only that portion of anonymous donation that exceeds 5% of the total donations is taxed at 30%, the trust or society gets the benefit of reducing its total income by the entire amount that has been anonymously donated.

However, as per the amendment, only that portion of the anonymous donation that is taxed is eligible for reduction from the total income.

 

 

Dirty  Money  in  Trusts

 

Money “laundering”

Only a fool holds dirty money in his own name. The world’s financial system offers safer and friendlier ways to hide the proceeds of crime. Shell companies–those with no real operations–are one, phoney trusts and foundations are another (see “Trusts: The weak link”).

Belatedly, life is getting a bit more difficult for tax evaders, money launderers and those who abet them. One big move–now backed by the British government–is to oblige limitedliability companies to give details of their real owners. This newspaper has argued in favour of such a duty: limited-liability status is a kind of public subsidy (if the firm goes bust, the shareholders are not responsible for its debts). It was never meant to be a means of concealing ownership. Yet in many places it is just that: only six of 69 jurisdictions surveyed last year by Eurodad, an anti-corruption network, required all types of firm to record beneficial-ownership information.

Spurred by complaints from the police, pressure from campaigners and public distaste for tax-dodgers, the British government wants not only to set up a proper registry of beneficial ownership, but also to make its contents public. If the detailed regime matches the promise, this will be an important breakthrough. But Britain should also coax its offshore dependencies into greater openness. Some are conscientious, others less so. Even official investigators can find it hard to get the information they need. America can do more to help, too: states such as Nevada apply scandalously little scrutiny to the identity of those forming companies. European governments are keen to collect more tax, but many have been less eager to make corporate ownership transparent.

Cleaning up corporate ownership will increase public confidence in the financial system. But it is only the start. The misuse of trusts and other non-corporate entities is also a big problem. These have proper purposes, such as managing charitable donations, ring-fencing employee pension plans, safeguarding assets for children or organising wills and bequests. But they too enjoy a legal advantage: they are a way of parking assets. That seems fine as long as the trusts pay tax on profits (just as companies do) and their beneficiaries pay tax on any disbursement or benefit (just as shareholders do).

Instead, trust law has become a murky world. In many places there is no rule that trusts must disclose their existence, let alone pay tax on their earnings. “Orphan assets”, no longer legally owned by the person who put the money into the trust but not yet belonging to the trust’s potential beneficiaries, offer plenty of room for abuse. Some trusts, revealingly, even have flee clauses, where the trustees are obliged to try to change the domicile of the trust if the tax police start asking questions. A structure that was set up to protect the wives of medieval crusaders has ended up being used by the sort of businesspeople who greet the Russian leader as “Vladimir”.

Swiss knives

Far better to concentrate on two simple rules. First, all trusts and foundations should be registered, just as companies are, and their beneficiaries, both actual and potential, should be disclosed. Second, the trustees and the beneficiaries should be legally responsible for reporting any disbursements or benefits, and for making sure the tax is paid on them. Both the European Union and America are tiptoeing in this direction, but Luxembourg, Switzerland and some micro-states are resisting. It would be much better if they worked together. Trusts are a useful vehicle–but not for dodgy goods.

 

How Indian companies are misusing public trusts to launder their CSR spending

The statutory corporate social responsibility (CSR) norms introduced two years ago were expected to revolutionise funding of social causes, but some sections of India Inc may now be abusing these for laundering of black money, according to sources privy to such transactions.

Some companies are using onhire charitable trusts to fabricate CSR spending, at least two sources who have helped craft and execute such transactions said. They spoke to ET on the condition of anonymity.

India is the first and only country to have statutorily mandated corporate social responsibility for certain class of companies but the law allows a lot of leeway. CSR spends disclosed by companies need not be vetted by statutory auditors unlike other spending. Moreover, financials of charitable trusts also come under little statutory scrutiny. This combination of factors has left the new CSR norms wide open for abuse.

“Such abuse in unlikely in trusts floated by companies themselves. But it is possible where they use external trusts,” says Rusen Kumar, founder director of IndiaCSR, a portal that collates information and developments on CSR from across the country.

According to one person, the modus operandi is simple. If a company is obligated to spend, say, Rs 10 crore on CSR, it writes out a cheque in favour of a trust that works in education, healthcare, environment protection or any of the activities specified by the government. The trust, after deducting its commission, discreetly returns the money in cash to the officials or promoters, instantly turning Rs 10 crore of white money into black. The middleman gets a cut as well.

“Often the promoter pockets the money,” says a chartered accountant who has also helped clients with such deals. Often set up by politicians or rich individuals, these trusts also serve as laundering mechanism for unaccounted money. For example, a politician would set up a trust to build an educational institution. CSR funds would flow into the trust through legitimate banking channels. These funds are returned to the promoters in cash and the actual expenditure on the institution is met with the politician’s illicit hoard. The expenditure is then inflated helping launder the black money.

At the end of the year, the trust gives a report to the company which it duly incorporates in its CSR reporting form called AOC-4. “Though the financials are part of the directors’ report which is audited by external auditors, the AOC-4 itself is not subject to external audit. It is a lacuna,” says Bhaskar Chatterjee, director general and CEO, Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA).

ET met a middleman who had just concluded two deals—one for a well-known listed company and another for a smaller firm. He said he had already done cash-back deals worth about Rs 40 crore this year.

.

How Indian companies are misusing public trusts to launder their CSR spending

.

 

This is the first year that the CSR norms have come into play. Rules under Section 135 of the Companies Act, 2013, mandate that any company with a net worth of over Rs 500 crore or annual revenue of Rs 1,000 crore or net profit of Rs 5 crore has to spend 2 per cent of the average profit of the previous three years on CSR activities.

Public trusts are a favoured route to launder money because they are not adequately governed or monitored. Though some states such as Maharashtra have their own law such as the Bombay Public Trusts Act, 1950, trusts are not governed by a nationwide law. If a state law doesn’t exist such as in Delhi, these trusts are governed by the Indian Trusts Act of 1882 that applies to private trusts. There is no centralized repository— like the registrar of companies for corporates—of information on public  trusts.

 

They file annual accounts with the charity commissioner in states where it exists. Elsewhere, like Delhi, the only annual filing is income tax returns. An income tax official told ET that unless there is specific information, these are rarely scrutinized. In short, operations of public trusts remain opaque IICA’s Chatterjee, who was instrumental in drafting the CSR law, says that there is no real system to track these trusts. “The law should be tightened to ensure that money reaches the people it is intended to. If there is any leakage it should be plugged.”

Finance minister Arun Jaitley recently wrote in a Facebook post that bulk of the black money is within the country. He is probably right, but it would take tremendous political will and legislative imagination to choke the black money pipelines.

 

Who funds India’s political parties? Report says most donors anonymous

 

 

 

It is the best known secret of Indian politics. And it comes as no surprise that India’s national, state and regional parties earned Rs.4,662 crore in the last seven years, mostly in form of donations and contributions, but there is a huge cover of secrecy and lack of transparency in who gave the money to them, a report released by two NGOs has claimed.

The report shows that the Congress has earned the most, Rs. 2,008 crore, between 2004 and 2011 and its annual income has gone up steadily. At number two is the BJP, which in the same period made Rs. 994 crore. Its finances too improved steadily in the same period.

The report analyses income tax returns of political parties and donation documents made available to the Election Commission. The NGOs, Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and National Election Watch (NEW), campaign for transparency in the finances and funding of political parties.

The NGOs say that there is no standardised format for political parties to declare their incomes. A major source of income for all parties is the sale of “coupons” instead of receipts. Voluntary contributions and donations are also on top of the list of sources of income. None of these, the NGOs’ report says, are transparent ways to making and declaring money.

To bring some transparency into political funding, the Representation of People Act of 1951 says that political parties must declare details of contributions of more than Rs. 20,000. This report though points out major loopholes, like parties declaring every single contribution ofRs. 20,000 made by any person at one time. But if several donations totalling to more than Rs.20,000 are made by one person or company in one year, then parties interpret it differently. That leaves them the option of breaking up donations into amounts less than Rs. 20,000.

The BSP (which is third on the list in terms of income) for instance, has shown an income ofRs. 172 crore in between 2009 and 2011 but not declared a single contribution of more than Rs.20,000. The CPM, which made almost Rs. 150 crore in that period, has shown only 1.39 per cent of contributions of more than Rs. 20,000. For the same period, Congress has shown 11.89 per cent and BJP 22.76 per cent.

The parties with highest “donations” are the Telengana Rashtra Samiti at 99.98 per cent and Lok Janshakti Party at 89.88 per cent.

The other major source of income for the major parties is also donations from corporate houses. The report has a list of which corporate house made how much donation and to which party. Most of them contribute to both the major national parties, the Congress and the BJP. For instance, the General Electoral Trust made a donation of Rs. 36.41 crore to Congress and Rs. Rs. 26.07 crore to BJP between 2004 and 2011. Torrent Power similarly gaveRs. 14.15 crore to Congress and Rs. 13 crore to BJP. And a lot of the companies are new ones involved in infrastructure like power, steel and construction, beating the traditional firms of Tatas and Birlas.

 

 

Why are political parties not under RTI ambit: Supreme Court asks Centre, EC

 

The Supreme Court on Tuesday sought responses from the Centre, the Election Commission and six political parties, including Congress and BJP, on a plea to declare all national and regional political parties “public authorities” to bring them under the ambit of the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

“Issue notice,” a bench comprising Chief Justice HL Dattu and justices Arun Kumar Mishra and Amitava Roy said.

The Association for Democratic Reforms, an NGO, has also sought a direction that the political parties be asked to declare all donations, including those below Rs 20,000 also.

Lawyer Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the NGO, contended that political parties were public authorities and hence amenable to the RTI Act.

The Central Information Commission, in its detailed order, had held that political parties were public authorities and hence should disclose the information under RTI Act.

“Political parties do not have to pay the income tax on the donations and, moreover, the donations below Rs 20,000 are not to be disclosed under the law by them,” the lawyer said, adding that these parties also controlled the legislature and the law-making process.

Earlier, the NGO had approached SC seeking transparency and accountability in functioning of recognised national and regional political parties.

It had claimed that the political parties received huge sums of money in form of donations and contributions from corporates, trusts and individuals but do not disclose complete information about the source of such donations.

In its plea, the NGO had urged the apex court to direct all national and regional parties to mandatorily disclose details about their income as well as expenditure.

It had also sought declaration of entire details of donations and funding received by the political parties, irrespective of the amount donated and details of donors making donations to them and to electoral trusts.

The petition had claimed that political parties enjoyed a stronghold over their elected MPs and MLAs under Schedule 10 of the Constitution that makes it compulsory for members of either Houses of Parliament or state legislatures to abide by the directions of their parties, failing which they stand to be disqualified.

 

 

RTI applicable to Trusts, institutions indirectly funded by govt

 

In a recent judgement, the State Information Commissioner Vijay Kuvalekar has said that Trusts or institutions that are not directly substantially funded by the government, but still indirectly receive funds to run schools, courses, colleges, come under the Right to Information (RTI), Act.

Kuvalekar, in his judgement said that indirectly, since the parent institute is getting the funds for institutes run by them, the RTI is applicable.

 
The judgement came in the wake of former member of Shikshan Prasarak Mandali (SPM), B B Jambhulkar who raised an RTI query with the SPM to get details on admission having cited corruption.

 
Jambhulkar said, “The SPM, however, denied to reveal the information as the SPM Trust was not funded by the government. Besides, I asked the Trust to give me details of the appointment of over 400 members of the Trust.”

 
The information commissioner, however, said that, “It is clear that the Trust is receiving funds to run other institutes as seen in the books of accounts. In such a case, it is liable to reveal any information as sought by the RTI applicant.”

 


Incidentally, the Income Tax department recently cancelled the registration of SPM as a charitable trust’. Jambhular had asked the query regarding a list of names of the students who have sought admission at Ramnarian Ruia college and R A Poddar college of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai.

EDITORIAL :  WAKE UP  Corrupt  Judges & Police of India – Bapuji’s dandi march- the origin of civil dis-obedience  movement

Greetings  on the birthday of  our bapuji , Mahatma Gandhi on 02nd October.   Just hanging  photograph of Gandhi  in  office room  , court  hall or  police station  won’t serve any purpose.  Before gandhi’s  photo only many corrupt practices , injustices are enacted by public servants.  Many  of  our public servants , Judges  &  Police   are  even unfit  to sit before  Mahatma Gandhi’s photograph , let   alone  invoke  mahatma’s name during  speech or court ruling.  Let  those very  Judges & Police   first  learn to  follow ideals  of Mahatma Gandhi  in their  official  capacity  as  well as personal capacity. The public servants  enjoy luxuries ,  5 star non veg meals ,  alcoholic drinks   all at tax payers expense. These judges give judgements  running into  hundreds of pages with moral guidance , great quotes  to commoners , police  use filthy language , 3rd degree torture methods against  innocents , commoners  , when there are rich crooks , criminals  justice kowtows before  their feet.  No brilliance  , quotes of judges , no bravery , valour of police , why ?

Inspite of our repeated appeals  for justice ,  judges  are mum.

1.       Are judges not interested in   apprehending  criminals & recovering  crores of public money ?

2.       Are   judges not interested in apprehending  master minds behind  Late prime minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination ?

3.       Are judges not  interested  in   prosecuting  greedy , corrupt industrialists ?

4.       Are  judges not interested in  apprehending  greedy  , corrupt  industrialist  of RPG  enterprises ?

5.       Are  judges  not  interested  to  apprehend  criminals  within  RBI & BRBNMPL ?

6.       Are judges not interested to do their duties to protect fundamental , human rights of commoners ?

7.       Are judges not interested to do their duties , to legally prosecute their corrupt colleagues ?

8.       If  not , why those  judges & police are not quitting their jobs  , pave the way for a honest person ? 


It is on this day in 12/03/1930, mahatma gandhi led people to dandi in gujarath state,india , to peacefully protest against the atrocious, illegal tax levied by the occupiers-britishers on natural salt. This non-violent, civil dis-obedience movement soon became a mass movement throught india & shook the very foundations of the colonial british government . it is an important milestone in our freedom struggle.


Today, in india even after 1947’s  independence  commoner’s are yet to relish the fruits of independance. Criminals have occupied the seats of power , in their greed for power & money are violating the fundamental/human rights of commoners. The saving  grace is that still a few honest people are here & there in seats of power. We the commoners must come together & support those honest people in their endeavours. towards , this objective on this holy day   SOS e Voice for Justice   on web  was  born.


Let us build ram rajya of mahatma’s dream through non violent means within the existing democratic framework .that ram rajya is aptly described by poet shri. Ravindranath tagore as,


Where the mind is without fear & the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches it’s arms towards
perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost it’s way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom , my father
Let my country awake.


Jai hind. Vande mataram.

 

Your’s sincerely,

Nagaraja.M.R.

 

RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LIMITED – WHERE IS ACCOUNTABILITY?


Dear mukesh & anil ambani,


The reliance industries has always got a favourable treatment from the state & central governments.there are allegations that ,


1.years ago, the central government gave import concessions for import of certain raw materials of textile sector ,which hugely benefitted the P.F.Y & TEXTILE projects of your’s ie reliance industries.


2.the O.N.G.C which has painstakingly surveyed the oil & gas reserves & prepared a list of lists,gave that list & you got godavari basin oil & gas project from the government .O.N.G.C could have developed it & earned millions.


3.few months back you were charged both by the government & cellular operators (GSM) that you are giving S.T.D & ROAMING FACILITIES to your reliance phone subscribers.your’s was only a W.L.L. they even claimed that you are misusing a legal loophole & causing crores of losses to the government & other GSM operators. however while the issue was before the T.R.A.I, the trai legalized your actions by announcing unified licence for telecom operators.


4.now you are charged by the government of re-routing ISD CALLS as local calls,thereby causing crores of losses to the government & BSNL.this time also you may get the reprieve from the government. the government ,if a commonman does not pay his electric bills in time slaps interest & cuts down the electric supply immediately. however the same government ,even if your company has been alleged of causing crores of rupees losses to the government & other players, always enacts favourable laws for you like a SANTA CLAUS.


WILL YOU PLEASE CLARIFY mr.mukesh ambani & mr.anil ambani?
the TRAI announced unified licence regime in haste that too with retrospective effects.so all the charges against reliance were dropped. in the same vein as unified licence got retrospective effect , why not the government re-imburse the differece amount out of hefty fees collected from other cellular operators ? take the reliance fees as bench mark.anyway , finally commonman is the looser.

10 things you should know about the Reliance KG-D6 gas deal

 

Reacting to Arvind Kejriwal’s presser where he said that an FIR will be filed against Mukesh Ambani, current oil minister Veerappa Moily and former oil minister Murli Deora over the gas pricing formula, Moily said that we should sympathize with his ignorance since kejriwal doesn’t know how the government functions. He reiterated that the norms were being followed and there is a system for fixing prices.

ALSO READ: Kejriwal orders FIR against Mukesh, Moily

So who is actually ignorant in this case? Were the norms actually followed or has Kejriwal raised some valid points.
ALSO READ:T N Ninan: One more! 

Here is a refresher and ready reckoner on the entire KG D6 gas basin controversy.

1) What is KG D6 basin?

Krishna Godavari (KG) Basin is spread across 50,000 sq km in the Krishna River and Godavari river basins near the coast of Andhra Pradesh. The site Dhirubhai-6 (D6) is where Reliance Industries discovered the biggest gas reserves in India. In government records, the 7,645 sq km block is known as KG-DWN-98/1. The KG basin is considered to be the largest natural gas basin in India.

2) How did Reliance Industries get into KG basin?

Government of India opened up hydrocarbon exploration and production (E&P) in the country to private and foreign players in 1991. Small and medium sized blocks were opened up in this round which was followed up by giving out bigger blocks in 1999 as per the New Exploration and Licensing Policy (NELP). Through NELP, Reliance bagged the rights to explore the D6 block.

3) Did government have a role after the block was handed over?

Since all mining resources belong to the people of India, government monitors the exploration and production of these. In the case of oil and gas sector, government enters into contractual relationship with the private player through a Production Sharing Contract (PSC). The PSC lays out roles and responsibilities of all parties, specifies the detailed procedures to be followed at different stages of exploration, development and production. It also specifies the cost recovery and profit sharing in the contract. Directorate General of Hydrocarbon (DGH) monitors the PSC. A PSC was signed between the government of India (GOI) and undivided Reliance Industries and its minority partner Niko Resources (10 per cent stake) for exploration and production of oil and gas.

4) What happened to KG D6 when the Reliance group split?

Even before production could start from the KG D6 wells, Reliance group was split vertically between the two brothers, with the gas business of Reliance Industries remaining with Mukesh Ambani, the elder brother. The brothers fought over this huge reserve of gas even though it was not theirs in the first place. The very first line of a production sharing contract clearly says that “By virtue of article 297 of the Constitution of India, Petroleum is a natural state in the territorial waters and the continental shelf of India is vested with the Union of India”.

The brothers while splitting their father’s empire split the gas reserves too. A family pact between the two brothers, which was never made public till the issue blew out of proportion, was at the core of the dispute. Anil Ambani owned RNRL (Reliance Natural Resources Ltd) citing the agreement by the brothers in 2005, claimed it had rights to gas from Reliance KG basin for 17 years at $2.34 per mmBtu (million British thermal unit).The Supreme Court finally settled the matter by saying that ‘the government owns the gas till it reaches its ultimate consumer and parties must restrict their negotiation within the conditions of the government policy’.

Here the role of the government needs to be highlighted. None of the ministries involved in the process, including the oil ministry which Moily now represents, raised the point that the gas reserves belonged to the country and was not a property of the Ambani family. Even the Prime Minister, ManMohan Singh meekly requested the brothers to settle their differences in the interests of the country.

But how did the Ambani brothers arrive at this magic figure of $2.34 per mmBtu when there was no benchmark. In fact ONGC was supplying gas to the government at half the rate.

5) How did Anil Ambani arrive at the price of $2.34 per mmBtu for KG basin gas?

In June 2004, National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) invited bids for supply of gas for its 2600 MW power plant in Kawas and Gandhar. Reliance Industries, hopeful of starting production of gas by the time NTPC’s power plant is ready bid for the project and was awarded it as the lowest ‘techno-commercial’ bidder. A Letter of Intent (LOI) was issued to Reliance Industries to supply 132 trillion units of gas per annum to NTPC for 17 years at a price of $2.34 per mmBtu. Anil Ambani used this as a basis for asking gas for his power plant.

6) Why is the NTPC-Reliance dispute all about? 

Reliance Industries refused to sign the contract for supply of gas. Jairam Ramesh, the Minister of Power in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha in 2009 said that “After issuance of LOI, RIL did not come forward to sign the Gas Sale and Purchase Agreement and sought major changes in the draft GSPA.In spite of all the efforts (by NTPC) RIL did not sign the GSPA agreed during the bidding process.”

NTPC dragged Reliance to Bombay High Court on December 20, 2005 but unfortunately the case that has dragged on. The case after nine years is still sub judice. Here again the government’s disinterest in protecting the interests of its own PSU has been a matter of much debate.

While NTPC was fighting the case with Reliance in the Bombay High Court, the government referred the matter to an Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM) in 2007 headed by none other than the current President Pranab Mukherjee, who was then the finance minister. EGoM approved a rate hike of $4.2 per mmBtu of gas. This decision was taken without a single unit of gas coming out of the KG basin.

Reliance grabbed at this opportunity and said that it could not supply gas at a price lower than the mandated price set by the government.

7) How did Pranab Mukherjee arrive at the price of $4.2 mmBtu for gas?

The price was arrived by Reliance through its ‘price discovery mechanism’. As per a Reliance crafter formula, user companies were asked to quote a price which gave them a choice of arriving at a value between $4.54 and $4.75 per mmBtu. Reliance initially forwarded a figure of $4.59 which was later brought down to $4.3, but Pranab Mukherjee claimed victory by announcing a figure of $4.2 per mmBtu.

The brazenness of the entire exercise by the government can be seen from the fact that the objections raised by the Principal Advisor, Power and Energy to the government of India, Surya P Sethi along with the then cabinet secretary were ignored by the government. Surya questions the recommendation saying that nowhere is the cost of production more than $1.43.

8) Is it exploration or exploitation?

A CAG report released in 2011 (initiated in 2007 but delayed due to non-co-operation) on Performance Audit of Hydrocarbon PSCs castigated the oil ministry along with Reliance to retain its entire KG-D6 block in contravention of the PSC. As per the PSC, Reliance should have relinquished 25 per cent of the total area outside the discoveries in 2004 and 2005, but the entire area was declared as a discovery area (after initial objections) and the company was allowed to retain it. Without drilling adequate wells, Reliance kept on claiming that there was potential for petroleum. In CAG’s words this was done to confuse potential/prospectivity with actual discovery of hydrocarbons. The move allowed Reliance to keep the entire area to itself without following the norms laid under the PSC.

In a recent report CAG has said that Reliance moved directly from discovery to commercial production, skipping the intermediate appraisal programme step required as under PSC. CAG asks, without an appraisal programme how did the government and DGH ascertain the amount of gas in the well? And if they did not know how much gas was there in the well, what is the logic and basis of blaming Reliance of hoarding gas. Further, as pointed out by CAG, how did DGH assure itself of reliability of the development plan, production rate and production costs without the appraisal report?

9) Why more investments are bad?

CAG pointed out that as per the PSC, more investments, especially in initial stages would mean more profit for the operator and less for the government. This structure gives inadequate incentive for operators to reduce capital expenditure and provides them with substantial incentives to ‘front-end’ capital expenditure. Share of government profit varies from 85 per cent in a low investment scenario to 5 per cent in a high investment scenario. This explains the case of exaggerated investment made against Reliance Industries.

Incidentally, as pointed out by V Ranganathan of IIM Bangalore in his article in Economic Times, the case of exaggerated investment was first pointed out by Anil Ambani, where he pointed out that investment as per Reliance’s plan is increasing four times but production is expected to only double. Reliance revised its production estimates from 40 mmscmd (million metric standard cubic metres per day) to 80 mmscmd while increasing its investment from $2.4 billion to $8.8 billion.

10) How was the new pricing formula arrived at?

Former RBI governor C Rangarajan came out with a formula which has been followed nowhere in the world, which has resulted in Reliance (and other players too) getting a price on import parity basis. Surya Sethi, former Principal Adviser, Power and Energy, Government of India does not mince words when he asks the Prime Minister in an open letter [Read here] not to burden the nation with Rangarajan Committee’s madness that only benefit a select few.

Conclusion

Sethi’s open letter to the Prime Minister sums up the entire issue when he points out that the CAG’s findings reveal how crony capitalism benefited RIL. The pre-qualification norms were diluted to ensure RIL qualified, the claimed size of gas discoveries, the field development plans and the investment outlays proposed escaped rigorous due diligence says Sethi. Above all, the company’s commitments under the PSC on gas output were not enforced.

The entire episode stinks of anything but natural gas. While Moily may claim that system was followed, there is enough evidence out there that says otherwise.

THE MEGA 4G SCAM BY GOVERNMENT AND RELIANCE

After the 2G spectrum allocation scam of the UPA Government, another major telecom scandal in the allocation of 4G spectrum (BWA) has come to light by the recent CAG report. In fact, AAP leader and senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan has filed a PIL in the Supreme Court seeking cancellation of Reliance Industries’ telecom license and a through criminal investigation. Supreme Court had issued notice to Government and Reliance on that petition on 9th May 2014.

The factum of the scam is this. The UPA Government in March 2013 allowed a back-door entry of Reliance Jio Infocomm into voice telephony in violation of the judgment of the Supreme Court in the 2G case. This was done at the price discovered in 2001 of Rs 1,658 crores for a pan-India licence, which is the same price that was struck down by the Supreme Court in the 2G judgment because of having caused a huge loss to the public exchequer.

During May-June 2010 the auctions for 3G and 4G were concluded. The 3G auction fetched Rs 16,750.58 crore for 5+5 MHz spectrum in 2100 MHz (or 2.1 GHz) band. Thus, per MHz price worked out to be Rs 1,675 crore. Immediately, after the 3G auction, the 4G auction began which fetched Rs 12,847.77 crore for 20 MHz pan-India license in the 2300 MHz (or 2.3 GHz) band. This works out to be Rs 642.39 crore per MHz. This was so because all documents stated that 4G spectrum was for data services only, whereas 3G spectrum can be used for both data and voice telephony.

Infotel Broadband Services Pvt Ltd (IBSPL) emerged as the only company to have acquired pan-India 4G spectrum. IBSPL had an internet license since November 2007 and had just one subscriber with revenue of Rs 16.28 lakhs during 2009-10, and its authorized share capital was Rs 3 crore and the paid up capital was Rs 2.51 crore. Infotel Digicomm Pvt Ltd (IDPL) held 99.99% share of the IBSPL at the time of submission of application in March 2010.

Within hours of completion of 4G auction on 11.06.2010, IBSPL increased the authorised share capital from Rs 3 crore to Rs 6,000 crore. On 17.06.2010, the company authorized its Board of Directors to allot 475 crore equity share of Rs 10 each to Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) and 25 crore equity share of Rs 10 to Infotech Digicomm Pvt Ltd (IDPL) aggregating to the equity capital of Rs 5,000 crore. On the same day, the company also decided to change from a private company to Public Limited Company (Infotel Broadband Services Ltd). Thus, the company within a week of winning the 4G spectrum disposed off 95% shares to RIL while 5% was retained by IDPL. Much later in March 2013, the company was renamed as Reliance Jio Infocomm Pvt Ltd.

CAG has found that the Government did not protect its interest at the time of framing eligibility criteria for the 4G auction. It allowed participation of internet (ISP) licensees without ensuring adequate safeguards in terms of net-worth of the companies participating in the auction. It found that while a UAS licensee or even a new company without a license was allowed to participate in the 4G auction, but they had to pass through the test of net-worth in order to become eligible, but no such criteria was specified for the existing internet (ISP) licensees participating in 4G auction. CAG observed that this criterion was important even for ISP-A licensees as they had to participate in the bidding where the reserve price was fixed at Rs 1,750 crore per pan-India license for 20 MHz spectrum in 2.3 GHz band. The only company which won the pan-India 4G license, was an ISP-A licensee, Infotel Broadband Services Pvt Ltd (IBSPL), a HFCL promoted group company. CAG has stated that IBSPL was given the ISP-A license in November 2007, and it had just one leased-line subscribers as on December 2009 and total revenue of just Rs 16.28 lakh for FY 2009-10. The paid-up capital was just Rs 2.51 crore and 99.99 per cent of it was held by Infotel Digicom Pvt Ltd at the time of submission of application for the 4G auction in March 2010. Thus, this company could not be termed as a serious player. And there were no checks in-built in the auction process to eliminate such non-serious players, CAG has observed.

After the company was taken over Reliance Industries, the Government allowed it to provide voice telephony (which was earlier prohibited) without conducting a fresh auction. This was done at the rate of Rs 1,658 crore which was fixed in 2001, and had been struck down by the Supreme Court in the 2G case for causing huge loss to public exchequer. The CAG has now concluded that besides vitiating the auction process, an undue advantage of Rs 22,842 crore was given to RIL at the cost of exchequer. The relevant part of the CAG’s report is reproduced below: –

It was found that the basis of the decision i.e. payment of entry fee of Rs 1,658 crore by ISP licensee for a permission to Pan India provision of mobile voice services using BWA spectrum considered by the DoT Committee, Telecom Commission and the MOC&IT, was primarily intended to fill the gap between the eligibility criterion stipulated for participation in the 3G / BWA auction in 2010 as UAS / CMTS licensees had paid entry fee of Rs 1,658 crore while ISP licensees had paid only Rs 30 lakh.

The DoT Committee, Telecom Commission and the MOC&IT however ignored the fact that the quantum of entry fee i.e. Rs 1,658 crore was basically discovered in 2001 through the bidding for the 4th Cellular licenses. Market conditions since then have changed drastically, and this price needed to be modified to reflect the present value. Neither the DoT Committee / TC under the Chairmanship of the Secretary DoT nor the MOC&IT felt the need for revision of the price discovered in 2001 as the entry fee for UASL in 2013, even when the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India had cancelled 122 licenses granted in 2008 on the basis of the same entry fee stating that it was impossible for them to approve the action of the DoT.

Therefore, by permitting ISPs to provide mobile voice service using BWA spectrum won in 2010 auction post-auction, the government has brought ISP licensees with BWA spectrum at par with UAS / CMTS 3G spectrum winners so far as provision of services are concerned – Voice, Data, etc., and post auction interpretation of such vital nature would appear to be arbitrary, inconsistent and not appropriate. Hence, IBSPL, now Reliance JioInfocomm, appeared to have been accorded undue advantage of Rs 22,842 crore i.e. the difference of the proportionate prices for 20 MHz block size in 2.1 GHz spectrum band (3G spectrum) and 2.3 GHz spectrum band (BWA spectrum) plus the Net Present Value of the entry fee for UASL at the end of FY 2009-10 (Rs 20,653 crore plus Rs 3,847 crore – Rs 1,658 crore). Besides, the sanctity of the entire auction process has been rendered vitiated due to post auction interpretations and interventions after three years. It was therefore no surprise that Reliance JioInfocomm was among the first group of companies which applied for UL immediately after introduction of the scheme and obtained the Letter of Intent (LoI). Had the spectrum blocks been specified and declared as liberalised spectrum blocks i.e. open for all technology / services in the NIA in February 2010, there was no doubt that bidders would have taken informed decision for putting up their bid and the market discovered price would have been significantly different for 3G and BWA spectrum.

Therefore, the Aam Aadmi Party demands the NDA government to immediately cancel the telecom license and allotment of 4G spectrum given to Reliance Industries and also a registration of an FIR by the CBI for a through criminal investigation into this scam involving Reliance Industries and the UPA Government.

Petroleum Ministry document leak: It’s a Rs 10,000 cr scam, claims accused Santanu Saikia; R-ADAG office raided

The dramatic claim comes after police arrested five senior executives from top energy firms and two consultants, including Sanatnu Saikia in the Petroleum Ministry ‘leak’ case.

A key accused in the corporate espionage case today claimed that it was a Rs 10,000 crore scam that he was trying to uncover as police said documents seized from corporate executives related to “national security” that can attract Official Secrets Act provisions.

Meanwhile, a local court remanded the five arrested corporate executives in police custody till February 24 for further questioning. Delhi Police also conducted raids here and in nearby Noida looking for stolen documents from offices of petroleum companies.

Santanu Saikia, a former journalist, now running an energy consultant running a website, claimed to reporters outside an Crime Branch office that it was a Rs 10,000 crore scam, which he was trying to uncover. “Please quote me,” he said as policemen took him in for interrogation.

Reacting to his claim, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said Saikia was saying such things for covering up his own defence.

“Let him spill out all the information he has. The primary accusation is that somebody stole the papers from the ministry. Police is investigating. Anybody has the right to tell everything to the police,” he said.

Pradhan said police is doing an independent job and everything will be clear after investigation. Law will take its course, whoever they may be, he said when asked about the arrest of executives of private companies.

Producing the five corporate executives arrested yesterday before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Khanagwal, the police said, “National interest was taken for a ride in the case.

“Documents related to national security have also been recovered. This may attract charges under the Official Secrets Act.”

The five–Shailesh Saxena from RIL, Vinay Kumar from Essar, KK Naik from Cairns, Subhash Chandra from Jubilant Energy and Rishi Anand from Reliance ADAG–who were produced in the court in police custody till February 24 for further questioning.

The police told the court that they have to consult the concerned ministries regarding the documents which have been recovered from the possession of the accused and their custodial interrogation was required to confront them with the same.

These five accused were procuring these sensitive documents at the behest of their senior officials, some of whom might be interrogated in the ongoing investigation, police said.

The advocates appearing for these five accused vehemently opposed the police’s plea seeking five days police custody, contending that their clients have been illegally detained since February 18 and 19.

The defence counsel also contended that there was nothing to be recovered from their clients and the police have not told the court regarding the specific allegations against these accused.

With the arrest of these five accused, the total number of arrests in the case rose to 12. Seven others were produced in the court yesterday out of whom four were sent to police custody till February 23 and three were remanded to judicial custody for two weeks.

Police sources said that Subhash Chandra, a senior executive with Jubilant Energy, who was arrested along with four other top officials of energy companies yesterday, was taken to Jain’s office in the morning.

After searching Jain’s office, the police team took him to the Noida office of Jubilant Energy. His office and some other rooms were searched by the police to recover stolen documents.

Office of another petroleum company whose executive was also one of them arrested was also raided by the police. Laptop and computers of the arrested officials have been seized by investigators which would be sent for forensic analysis.

Asked about the issue, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi said, “We have searched places which were necessary for the course of investigation. We may further raid places as our aim is to reach the bottom of the whole thing.”

The police chief also said that investigation is on in the case and it will end only when a charge sheet will be filed.

“We need to know since how long this has been going on and who all benefited from it,” said a senior official.

According to police, all these company executives allegedly received stolen documents which have been recovered by police teams during raids from their establishments.

Saxena is Manager, corporate affairs, Reliance Industries Limited(RIL); Chandra is senior executive, Jubilant Energy; Anand is DGM, Reliance ADAG; Vinay is DGM, Essar and Naik is GM, Cairns India.

They have been booked under IPC sections 120 B (criminal conspiracy) and 411 (dishonestly receiving stolen property).

The case FIR, produced in a local court yesterday said an input on the National Gas Grid for the Finance Minister’s Budget speech of 2015-16 is among the various “secret” documents recovered from the accused.

The office of Reliance ADAG group at a premier five-star hotel here was also raided today by police in this connection.

“We are basically looking for the stolen documents from the establishments linked to the 12 people we have arrested so far. Searches are being conducted at various places in Delhi and NCR,” said a senior police official associated with the probe.

The raids have been confined to this region and not being carried out “across the country” as was speculated, he added.

Sources, meanwhile, said that police had also stumbled upon another module operated separately from the those arrested so far and their ‘area of operation’ was another plum ministry.

They added that a junior level officer and some more corporate executives are under scanner in this connection and arrests are expected by Monday.

KG basin controversy: SC seeks response from Reliance


The Supreme Court on Friday granted six weeks time to Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) to respond to the final CAG report, which found alleged irregularities including in payments made to the contractors on drilling of D6 wells at the Krishna-Godavari basin.

The apex court posted the next hearing for March 20 during which it would examine the RIL’s response to the CAG report that had sought disallowance of $357.16 million (about Rs 2,179 crore) expenditure RIL incurred on drilling of wells and payments to contractors in KG-D6.

Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar said the Centre can make comments on the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) recommendations and findings only after getting the report of the Parliament’s Public Account Committee which is examining it.

The order was passed during a brief hearing of petitions filed in 2013 by senior CPI leader Gurudas Dasgupta and NGO Common Cause, challenging the then UPA government decision to double the price of natural gas from $4.2 to $8.4 per mmbtu and seeking cancellation of RIL’s contract for exploration of oil and gas from the KG basin.

The third PIL on the issue has been filed by advocate M L Sharma. A bench headed by Justice T S Thakur also allowed Dasgupta and other petitioners to file their response to the NDA government’s fresh guidelines which would “supersede” the earlier UPA dispensation’s policy on price fixation for natural gas, including that from KG basin, which has been the bone of contention between the Centre and RIL.

The Solictor General on November 14, 2014 had said before the bench, which also comprised justices J Chelameswar and Kurian Joseph, that the ‘new domestic natural gas policy’ was approved by the government on October 18 raising natural gas price to $5.61 per mmbtu from November 1 and had said that “recommendation of the Rangarajan Committee would not be given effect”.

The Rangarajan formula on gas pricing was approved by the previous UPA government. Rangarajan was Chairman, Economic Advisory Council to the then Prime Minister.

In its second audit of RIL’s eastern offshore KG-D6 block, the CAG on November 28, 2014 recommended disallowing the company from recovering $279.8 million in cost of three wells as well as a part of expenditure the firm had incurred in area which was improperly declared discovery area.

The CAG, in its report tabled in the Parliament, found irregular payment of $427.48 million to contractors, of which it sought disallowance of at least $77.36 million cost. Earlier RIL’s senior advocate Harish Salve had said “he is not happy with the new guidelines (on gas pricing)”.

While the Centre has maintained that the issue raised by Dasgupta has been addressed with the new guidelines, advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the NGO, had said several other issues needed to be argued.

He had said that the draft CAG report itself suggested that RIL “hugely over-estimated” the reserves of the KG gas block and other irregularities are cited.

Among the other issues, the NGO has alleged that fraud was committed by RIL requiring government to take back the field and there was a need for court-monitored probe on the issue.

Dasgupta and the NGO had said government should be asked not to make “any further increase” in the price of gas produced by RIL from KG basin.

RIL has refuted the allegation of extraneous consideration for the increase in the gas price from $4.2 to $8.4 per mmbtu for the gas taken from the existing fields like KG D-6 basin. RIL had submitted that the gas output from KG basin has fallen to 8 mscmd against expected 80 mscmd due to “technical reason”.

M Veerappa Moily, the then Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, was also named as one of the respondents in the petitions. The PILs have also sought imposition of penalty on private parties for failure in adhering to commitments.

The petitioners have sought a direction for a thorough audit by CAG of the working of the production-sharing contract (PSC) governing KG block, gold plating by RIL, underproduction by RIL and all related issues.

The former CPI MP had alleged collusion between the government and the company, saying RIL “is holding country’s energy security to ransom”. He also said that natural resources belong to the citizens and the government.

The Common Cause has supported Dasgupta’s arguments and referred to controversial intercepted telephonic conversations between former corporate lobbyist Niira Radia with others to support the allegation of collusion.

The NGO has urged that Centre should wait for the outcome of the two petitions pending before the apex court.

 

Kejriwal trains his guns on Reliance Industries Limited ( RIL ), wants gas pact cancelled

Kejriwal attributes Jaipal’s ouster to his refusal to carry out Mukesh Ambani’s diktat
India Against Corruption on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on the NDA government as well as the Manmohan Singh government for protecting the interests of corporates, especially Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). It demanded that the government’s contract with RIL be scrapped as the Mukesh Ambani’s company allegedly cut down on production from its KG D6 gas- field to gain huge profits after the proposed gas price revision.
Linking the shifting of Jaipal Reddy from the Petroleum and Natural Gas Ministry to his refusal to follow RIL’s diktat to revise the price before the scheduled deadline of April 2014, IAC leader Arvind Kejriwal said Mr. Reddy was shunted out as he refused to bow to RIL, arguing that a price revision would fetch the company an additional profit of Rs. 43,000 crore.
“Mr. Reddy had prepared a note for the Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM), in which he mentioned that acceptance of RIL’s demand would mean an additional profit of Rs. 43, 000 crore [to the company]. Most of this gas is used in power and fertilizer production. Increasing the gas price would mean an additional financial burden of Rs. 53,000 crore on the Central and State governments. This would in turn mean higher power and fertilizer prices… or a higher subsidy burden on the taxpayer,” Mr. Kejriwal said in his third expose, after targeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra and BJP president Nitin Gadkari.
Mr. Kejriwal, who addressed journalists, along with Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan, said that in 2006, it was Mani Shankar Aiyar who got the axe and Murli Deora was brought in to allow RIL to increase capex from $2.39 billion to $8.8 billion and to increase the gas price from $2.43 per Million Metric British Thermal Units (mmBtu) to $4.2 mmBtu. “We demand that the contract with RIL for the KG D6 be scrapped immediately and the state-run companies like ONGC be given the block for future production. The government should immediately put in place adequate systems to get full production from the KG D6 at the cheapest prices for the country and its people.”
Mr. Kejriwal said that under RIL’s contract, the company was supposed to sell gas at $4.2 per mmBtu until March 2014. But midway, the company wanted the price increased to $14.2 per mmBtu.
Mr. Kejriwal and Mr. Bhushan alleged that to pressure the government to revise the gas price, RIL had substantially reduced production for over the past one year. The total consumption in the country stood at 156 Million Metric Standard Cubic Metre Per Day (mmscmd). RIL was supposed to produce 80 mmscmd from 2009. However, it was turning out just 27 mmscmd. “Production was being artificially kept low to blackmail the government. They are not just hoarding gas but also forcing various consumers to buy gas from abroad. Gas from abroad costs $13 per mmBtu, and if RIL’s demand for increasing the gas price is accepted, it will lead to the shutdown of several gas-based power plants and an increase in power and fertilizer prices. It will result in Rs. 43,000 crore of additional benefits to RIL.”
Mr. Kejriwal said the drastic reduction in gas production forced many gas-based power plants to shut down or run with a reduced capacity. “Today, power from a gas-based power plant costs Rs. 3 a Kwh (Kilowatt hour). If the gas price is increased from $4.2 to $14.2 as demanded by RIL, power rates will go up to Rs. 7 a Kwh. “We urge the people of this country not to allow the government to pass the huge benefit to RIL and [to] flood the Petroleum Ministry and its new Minister, Veerappa Moily, with RTIs [Right to Information questions] … so that he does not dare to undertake any revision. We should not allow this government, which changes Ministers at the instance of Mr. Ambani, to work at the direction of RIL.”
Mr. Kejriwal played the clippings of tapes, involving conversations between corporate lobbyist Niira Radia and Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s son-in-law Rajnan Bhattacharya. “First, the NDA regime favoured RIL in the structuring of the deal in 2000, and various modifications were made thereafter.” Citing the CAG’s report on the KG D6, he alleged that the motivated structuring of the contract could cost the exchequer up to Rs. 1 lakh crore.
He said RIL had signed a contract with state-run NTPC in 2004 to supply gas for its power plants at $2.34 per mmBtu. However, the company backed out of the deal, and the matter was in court. “UPA I or UPA II did not deem it fit to vigorously take up the case of NTPC against RIL, but worked in a proactive manner to get the price revised for RIL gas. The EGoM, headed by the then Finance Minister, Pranab Mukherjee, revised the gas price to $4.2 per mmBTU, and by doing so, it gave RIL an undue benefit of Rs. 8,000 crore. 

 

Kejriwal’s latest: Reliance blackmailing govt, Mukesh Ambani running India

NEW DELHI: S Jaipal Reddy was axed as petroleum minister for refusing a Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries’ proposal to hike charges of gas it supplied to state-run power plants, India Against Corruption’s Arvind Kejriwal charged on Wednesday, demanding that the Krishna Godavari basin allotted to the company be taken back.
“Mukesh Ambani is running the country it seems,” Kejriwal told the media here. “Jaipal Reddy was removed as he refused to hike the charges levied by Reliance Industries to supply gas to the NTPC (National Thermal Power Corp).”
Reliance called the charges “irresponsible”.
According to Kejriwal, the KG basin was awarded to Reliance in 2000 by the NDA government when the company agreed to supply gas to the NTPC for the next 17 years at $2.34 per unit.
But, said Kejriwal, the company revised the rate to $4.25 per unit in 2007 which then finance minister Pranab Mukherjee agreed to as the head of an empowered group of ministers.
“The entire contract was meant to benefit Reliance because … the cost would be determined by the company, and if the cost increases, so will the profit,” he said, adding this was unheard of in business.
The company, he said, revised the rate to $4.2 per unit in 2007, which then finance minister Pranab Mukherjee agreed to as head of an empowered group of ministers, benefiting Reliance to the tune of Rs.10,000 crore.
Kejriwal alleged that in 2006 then petroleum minister Mani Shankar Iyer was removed and Murli Deora brought in to increase Reliance Industries’ capital expenditure from $2.39 billion to $8.8 billion, and to hike gas price from $2.34 per unit to $4.2 per unit.
Later, the company wanted the rate further hiked to $14.2. Jaipal Reddy, who reportedly did not agree to the proposal, was shunted out in Sunday’s cabinet rejig, said the activist-politician.
Kejriwal released to the media a “secret” document of the petroleum ministry that said that accepting the Reliance demand would generate for it an additional profit of Rs 43,000 crore ($8.5 billion).
“In order to pressurize the government, RIL substantially reduced its production of natural gas,” a statement from India Against Corruption said.
“Production has been artificially kept low to blackmail the government. They are not just hoarding the gas but also forcing various consumers to buy gas from abroad.”
When Reliance sought Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s intervention, he asked the attorney general to find out if the gas prices should be hiked or not.
“Why did the PM not show similar concern when NTPC was forced to accept higher gas price from RIL? Why is the PM not pulling up Reliance for not producing gas as per their commitment? Why did the PM not seek legal opinion when the country’s interests were at stake?”
Kejriwal, who was flanked by fellow activists Prashant Bhushan and Manish Sisodia, demanded that Reliance Industries’ “blackmailing” should be immediately stopped.
“Their KG Basin contract should be cancelled. The government should immediately put in place adequate systems to get full production from KG Basin at the cheapest price for the country.”
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) asked the prime minister to respond to IAC and explain why Jaipal Reddy was dropped from the petroleum ministry.
“Is it any malfunction in the ministry that has persuaded Manmohan Singh to effect this change? Or is that Jaipal Reddy was not found a ‘convenient’ minister? Or is this another example of corporate interests taking precedence over national good?” BJP leader Jaswant Singh asked.
After taking on Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra and BJP president Nitin Gadkari, anti-corruption activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday charged Mukesh Ambani, India’s richest man and chairman of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), with getting undue

favours from the government over a contract to develop natural gas fields.
The allegations pertain to RIL’s D-6 block in the Krishna Godavari (KG) basin, India’s largest gas producing field off the eastern coast in Andhra Pradesh, which is being jointly developed by RIL and its partners, Britain’s BP and Canadian firm Niko Resources.
Kejriwal and his colleague, lawyer Prashant Bhushan, termed the deal a “classic case of crony capitalism” and said both the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and Congress-led UPA (United Progressive Alliance) governments were responsible for RIL getting this contract.
The contract, signed in 2000 by the then NDA government, according to Kejriwal, would rob the national exchequer of revenues to the tune of Rs. 45,000 crore if RIL’s demands for a higher price for its gas were met.
The government has not decided yet on a demand by RIL to raise the price of gas from the field to $14.25 per unit from $4.25, the subject of a long-running controversy.
In a brief statement, RIL dismissed the charges as being “devoid of any truth or substance”.
“Irresponsible allegations made by IAC at the behest of vested interests without basic understanding of the complexities of a project of this nature do not merit a response,” it added.
Petroleum minister Veerappa Moily refused to comment.
“I have better things to do,” he said.
“I don’t want to respond.”
The press conference also witnessed high drama when a Congress worker wanted to question Kejriwal, but was heckled by camerapersons and IAC volunteers, and forced to leave the venue.
Kejriwal based his attack on the government and RIL on the so-called ‘Radia tapes’, a collection of phone taps from between 2007 and 2009 in one of which someone thought to be former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee’s son-in-law Ranjan Bhattacharya is heard telling RIL and Tata Group’s corporate lobbyist Niira Radia that Ambani had told him that “Congress to apni dukaan hai”.
The unearthing of the Radia tapes had triggered accusations of corporate influence in the distribution of ministers’ portfolios in the UPA’s second term.
On Wednesday, Kejriwal gave this accusation fresh legs by linking Jaipal Reddy’s removal from the petroleum ministry on Sunday to his run-ins with RIL over the pricing of gas.
He also gave a populist spin to his allegations by linking the government’s restriction on the supply of cheap LPG cylinders to the public to the high profits being allowed to RIL.
“We want to know why the PM’s heart beats only for RIL. Why did he not seek the attorney general’s opinion when NTPC was not getting gas at cheap rates?” Kejriwal said.
State-run National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) had sought cheaper gas to fire its power plants.
* In 2006, Mani Shankar Iyer was removed and Murli Deora brought in to increase RIL capex from $ 2.39 billion to $ 8.8 billion and to increase gas price from $2.34 per mmBTU to $ 4.2 per mmBTU
* In 2012, Jaipal Reddy has been removed and Moily brought in to increase gas prices from $ 4.2 per mmBTU to $ 14.2 mmBTU and to condone RIL’s blackmailing of reducing gas production
* Both BJP and Congress involved. BJP signed a sweet deal with RIL in 2000. Congress faithfully implemented it
* If RIL demand of increasing the gas price to $ 14.2 is accepted, it would lead to shut down of several gas based power plants and increase in power and fertilizer prices
* By this deal, RIL would benefit by an additional Rs. 43,000 crore
* In Nira Radiia tapes, Ranjan Bhattacharya (Vajpayee’s son in law) is heard telling Nira that Mukesh Ambani told him –“Congress to ab apni dukaan hai”
* Huge benefits given to RIL in last one decade despite flagrant violations of various agreements by RIL. Benefits to RIL causing serious price rise in the country.
* “In order to pressurize the government, RIL substantially reduced its production of natural gas. Total consumption of natural gas in the country is 156 mmscmd. According to agreement, RIL was supposed to produce 80mmscmd (more than 50% of the total demand) from 2009.”
* “RIL got this contract during NDA regime in the year 2000. The contract was meant to favor RIL right from the beginning. In any business, increase in costs means decrease in profits.”
The IAC press release alleged that performance of RIL so far has been much worse than perhaps the worst performing government department.
1. 4 times cost escalation within 2 years from $ 2.39 billion in 2004 to $ 8.8 billion in 2006.
2. Increase in gas price from $ 2.34 per mmBTU in 2004 to $ 4.2 per mmBTU in 2007 to the present demand of $ 14.2 per mmBTU.
3. Capacity created for producing 80 mmscmd after incurring such a huge cost ends up producing just 27 mmscmd after 12 years.
4. 31 oil wells should have been in production till now. Out of them, just 13 are functional.
Kejriwal and lawyer Prashant Bhushan, a leading member of IAC, alleged the allocation of KG Basin to Reliance is on similar lines as coal block allocation scam. They alleged both Congress and BJP were in ‘Ambani’s pocket’.

 

REAL STORY OF Late DHIRUBHAI AMBANI of Reliance Industries

Another Major Scam : Govt. Favours Reliance In KG Basin

The CAG draft report that nails the connivance between Government agencies and Reliance Industries Ltd. leading to huge losses to the Government exchequer is yet another example of the power of corporates in the UPA Government to subvert rules and regulations in their favour.
The CAG has noted that the former Director-General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) permitted Reliance to inflate its “development costs” on the gas extraction in the D6 block of KG basin from 2.47 billion dollars to a whopping 8.84 billion dollars. This money taken by RIL affected the revenues of the Government. Government should prosecute the former DGH without any delay.
The Government’s connivance with RIL has a direct impact on the aam aadmi because increased claims of development cost get reflected in the price of gas given to consumers and also affect the prices of fertilizer and power. Letters have been written to the Prime Minister to institute an independent enquiry into the complaint of artificial jacking up of the capital expenditure by RIL for D6 KG Basin and its hasty approval by the concerned authority to find out the actual cost before gas price is fixed.
In a repeat of the 2-G scam, the Prime Minister’s silence on the issue, has again exposed the UPA Government’s acquiescence to corporate manipulation.

EX-MINISTER    SUKHRAM    CONVICTED    IN     1996    TELECOM    SCAM

Former Telecom Minister Sukhram in PV Narasimha Rao’s cabinet has been convicted for awarding a lucrative contract to a private telecom firm for supplying cables to the government at inflated rates after receiving a bribe of Rs3 lakh 15 years back.

Special Judge RP Pandey, who convicted 84-year-old Sukhram also on charges of misusing his official position in awarding the contract and causing loss to the state exchequer, is likely to decide on quantum of sentence to him tomorrow.

The corruption case dates back to 1996, when the Telecom Ministry under Sukhram’s stewardship had awarded private firm Haryana Telecom Limited (HTL) a contract worth Rs 30 crore to supply 3.5 Lakh Conductor Kilometers (LCKM) of Polythene Insulated Jelly Filled (PIJF) cables to the telecom department.

Sukhram had been put on trial along with HTL chairman Devinder Singh Choudhary who had died during the trial.

“Sukhram also obtained (illegal) gratification other than legal remunerations from Choudhary as a motive or reward for showing the favour to the said firm (HTL),” the judge said.

The court convicted Sukhram, brushing aside his defence counsel argument that had he caused a huge pecuniary gain to HTL, he would not have taken a paltry sum of Rs3 Lakh. The court termed the argument as “devoid of merit.”

“It is not the prosecution case that Sukhram got only this much amount in this deal which runs into crores of rupees. The prosecution case is that the amount of Rs3 lakh which was recovered from him was the bribe money.

“It is a matter of common knowledge that it is virtually impossible to get any direct evidence where both i.e bribe giver and the person who takes the bribe, worked in joint concert,” ASJ Pandey said in his 188-page order.

Convicting Sukhram, the judge said though there was no direct evidence to prove the existence of conspiracy between Sukhram and Choudhary, “it is a well-known fact that conspiracy is hatched in privacy and secrecy, for which direct evidence would be rarely available.”

“The facts and circumstances show that because of proximity of co-accused D S Choudhary (since expired) with Sukh Ram, M/s HTL was his most favoured vendor,” it said.

The court also refused to accept the argument of defence counsel that after the death of co-accused Choudhary, Sukhram cannot be convicted for conspiracy.

“His (Sukhram counsel’s) submission is without basis. It is suffice to say that death of an accused only abates the case against him which was pending but it does not mitigate the offence alleged to have been committed by him in concert with his co-accused,” the judge said.

The court noted that CBI had conducted search at the Himachal Pradesh residence of Sukhram from where it had recovered over Rs 1.16 crore.

The court said the note prepared by an official of the department on October 8, 1995 had mentioned the “precarious” position of HTL and another firm and it was proposed not to award it the contract to supply cables in excess of its ability.

But, despite that Sukhram had passed an order to give the contract to HTL for supplying additional cables, it added.

Reliance Jio Finalises Vendors, Partners for 4G Services Launch

‘Undue favour shown to Reliance Jio’

But the Mukesh Ambani-led company says that no rules were bent.

The Comptroller and Auditor General of India on Friday said Reliance Jio Infocomm got undue advantage of Rs. 3,367.29 crore after the Department of Telecom allowed it to provide voice calling services using BWA spectrum under the new licensing regime.

Infotel Broadband, which had won pan-India spectrum in the 2010 BWA spectrum auctions, was later acquired by the Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries. While Infotel had outbid most of the telecom operators, being an internet service provider (ISP) its licensing conditions did not allow it to offer voice services on this spectrum.

In 2013, the Department of Telecom allowed migration of ISP licensees with BWA spectrum to unified licence that would enable them to provide voice services using BWA spectrum. In its report, the CAG said Reliance Jio was the first to “take benefit of this scheme.”

“Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (formerly, M/s Infotel)… paid Unified License entry fee of Rs. 15 crore and additional migration fee of Rs. 1,658 crore in August 2013. This migration, allowed at prices discovered in 2001, resulted in undue advantage of Rs. 3,367.29 crore to M/s Reliance Jio Infocomm,” the CAG said in its report.

As per CAG calculations, the value of licence as on August 2013, would have been at least Rs. 5,025.29 crore.

“The decision to grant permission to an ISP licensee with BWA spectrum to operate in the voice telephony space also helped the ISP to circumvent the restrictions imposed by their licence at the time of auction, which were known to the ISP at the time of bidding for the BWA spectrum,” the auditor stated.

This was mainly because there was a lack of due diligence of in auction of spectrum.

Reliance Jio, however, denied the charges, saying, “we have acquired all our spectrum at market prices through open and transparent bidding processes, the conditions for which were same for all bidders. Further, the DoT rules for procuring the relevant licence for services using BWA spectrum too were the same for all successful bidders.”

Another spectrum scam hits govt, this time from ISRO

Pradeep Thakur | TNN | Feb 8, 2011, 12.10 AM IST

DELHI: Another spectrum scam has hit the UPA government which is already reeling from the fallout of allegations of corruption in the underpricing of 2G airwaves sold to telecom operators. On Monday, the government scrambled to cancel what appeared to be an improper deal where a private company would have got 70MHz of spectrum for just Rs 1,000 crore.

The scam involves the Bangalore-based Indian Space Research Organization and has a direct bearing on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who holds charge of the department of space. Both BJP and Left parties were quick to demand an investigation, stressing Singh’s cabinet responsibility.

The beneficiary, Devas Multimedia, is in a joint venture with ISRO-affiliate Antrix to offer satellite broadband services on various platforms, including mobile telephony.

The government last year earned Rs 67,719 crore just by auctioning 15MHz of similar airwaves for 3G mobile services. It got another Rs 38,000 crore by auctioning spectrum for broadband wireless access services which some operators propose to use to launch 4G services.

The Isro spectrum can be used for providing mobile broadband services using 4G technologies such as WiMax and Long-Term Evolution.

If sold at the same price the government got for 15 MHz of 3G spectrum, the sale of ISRO spectrum could have significantly lowered the fiscal deficit estimated at Rs 3.8 lakh crore this year.

With the deal under attack, ISRO indicated it could be revoked shortly. In a statement, the department of space said, “The agreement entered into by Antrix with Devas is already under review by the department of space and the government will take whatever steps are necessary to safeguard public interest. A decision on the matter is likely to be taken soon.”

The agreement between Devas Multimedia, promoted by M G Chandrasekhar, a former secretary at department of space and ISRO’s Antrix was signed in January 2005. The private entity since offloaded 17% of its stake to Deutsche Telekom for $75 million and took on other investors. This is the same as private players buying 2G spectrum cheap and selling it for large profits.

The 70 MHz spectrum gives Devas multimedia an edge over competitors, a feature that was once used by Doordarshan to deliver programmes in remote areas through satellite. This is of bigger value to the other spectrum holders in telecom, considering its high speed and mobile communication features.

Devas Multimedia said it had not received any communication regarding the contract, from ISRO or Antrix or any other government agency. “We do not own any spectrum, and the services we provide will be based on satellite transponders leased from ISRO/Antrix, wherein both — the satellite and spectrum — belong to the space research organization,” said a company statement. It claimed the GSAT 6 satellite programme had approval from the Union cabinet and Space Commission for its services, and Devas was developing an innovative satellite system.

CAG issued a statement confirming it was probing the matter, but denied it had finalized an estimate of the loss to government.

Government sources said the process to scrap the deal was underway, having been initiated two months ago. Sources said ISRO chief K Radhakrishnan had written to the PMO demanding cancellation of the agreement on the ground that it favoured Devas Multimedia.
The controversial deal was signed under his predecessor, G Madhavan Nair. But this may not cushion the government against criticism for allowing the deal to go through in the first place.
No urgency was, however, shown to revoke the deal even after the law ministry raised serious concerns about the proposal, terming it “illegal”.
In a statement, CAG said, “Audit of certain activities of department of space is underway. Preliminary inquiries have been raised, which is yet to be replied by the department.”
A newspaper report that said the national auditor had raised objections to free allocation of scarce airwaves had the Opposition sharpening its attack on the government on corruption. Both BJP and Left demanded a probe, stressing the PM was directly responsible for functioning of the space department.

“Since the department of space is under the Prime Minister, he should immediately clarify his stand on the whole issue,” BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.

CAG urges DOT to cancel Pan India 4G spectrum held by Reliance Jio

Reliance Jio Finalises Vendors, Partners for 4G Services Launch

Comptroller & Auditor General of India in a draft report sent to the Department of Telecom for comments, said, “the DoT failed to recognise the tell-tale sign of rigging of the auction right from beginning of the auction” in which a small ISP, Infotel Broadband Services Pvt Ltd (IBSPL) emerged winner of pan-India broadband spectrum by paying 5,000 times of its net worth.

RIL, which acquired IBSPL within hours of it winning the spectrum and later renamed it Reliance Jio, said, “There is no final CAG report that we are aware of. That said we out rightly reject any suggestion whereby spectrum was acquired in any manner other than through a transparent bidding process duly supervised by Government of India.”

CAG report on Reliance Jio:

CAG says IBSPL, ranked 150th in the list of ISPs, submitted an earnest money deposit of Rs 252.50 crore through the covert and overt assistance of third party / private bank, bid for Rs 12,847.77 crore (5000 times of its net worth) for pan-India spectrum and then sold the company on the day of completion of the auction. This indicated IBSPL’s collusion and sharing of the confidential information with a third party in violation of auction conditions, said CAG.

RIL spokesperson said that as per NIA bidders were required to submit Bank Guarantee for desired amount as Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) along with its application. “EMD was based on specific deposit requirement for each telecom circle. Accordingly Infotel Broadband Services Pvt Ltd (IBSPL) submitted a Bank Guarantee of Rs 253 crore in format as prescribed in NIA. Since no money was deposited as EMD, the question of source of deposit does not arise,” RIL spokesperson said reports Outlook India .

According to CAG, due to inclusion of inadequate eligibility criterion for participation in the auction, the promoters of the IBSPL enriched themselves and made unfair gain.

CAG rejected DoT response that the eligibility criterion for participation in the auction was finalized after due diligence and on sector regulator TRAI’s recommendations saying it was department’s responsibility to ensure that only serious ISPs participated in the auction.

DoT in its response admitted that there was no eligibility criterion with respect to minimum net worth or paid up capital for participation in the auction.
The inter-ministerial committee did not satisfy itself as to how the IBSPL, a company with a net worth of Rs 2.5 crore, would be able to pay the bid amount of Rs 12,847.77 crore within ten days.

Reliance Jio’s response to CAG’s allegations:

Business line sent a questionnaire to Reliance Jio asking its views on the allegations made by CAG on its backdoor entry into voice services and rigging the BWA auctions in 2010. The response given by Rjio to CAG’s allegations has been presented in a tabulated form below.

2G spectrum scam

The 2G spectrum scam was an indian telecommunications scam and political scandal in which politicians and government officials under the Indian National Congress (Congress) coalition government undercharged mobile telephone companies for frequency allocation licenses, which they then used to create 2Gspectrum subscriptions for cell phones. The difference between the money collected and that mandated to be collected was estimated by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India at ₹1.76 trillion (US$26 billion), based on 2010 3G and BWA spectrum-auction prices.[1] In a chargesheet filed on 2 April 2011 by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI, the investigating agency), the loss was pegged at ₹309845.5 million(US$4.6 billion).[2] In a 19 August 2011 reply to the CBI, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said that the government had gained over ₹30 billion (US$440 million) by selling 2G spectrum.[2]Minister of Communications & ITKapil Sibal said in a 2011 press conference that “zero loss” was incurred by distributing 2G licenses on a first-come-first-served basis.[3]

On 2 February 2012, the Supreme Court of India ruled on a public interest litigation (PIL) related to the 2G spectrum scam. The court declared the allotment of spectrum “unconstitutional and arbitrary”, cancelling the 122 licenses issued in 2008 under A. Raja (Minister of Communications & IT from 2007 to 2009), the primary official accused.[4] According to the court, Raja “wanted to favour some companies at the cost of the public exchequer” and “virtually gifted away important national asset[s].”[5] The zero-loss theory was discredited[6] on 3 August 2012 when, after a Supreme Court directive, the government of India revised the base price for 5-MHz 2G spectrum auctions to ₹140 billion (US$2.1 billion), raising its value to about ₹28 billion(US$410 million) per MHz (near the Comptroller and Auditor General estimate of ₹33.5 billion (US$490 million) per MHz).[7][8]

Although the policy for awarding licences was first-come, first-served, Raja changed the rules so it applied to compliance with conditions instead of the application itself.[9] On 10 January 2008, companies were given only a few hours to supply Letters of Intent and payments; some executives were allegedly tipped off by Raja, and they (and the minister) were imprisoned.[9] In 2011 Time ranked the scam second on their “Top 10 Abuses of Power” list, behind the Watergate scandal.[10][11][12]

Background[edit]

India is divided into 22 telecommunications zones, with 281 zonal licenses.[13] In 2008, 122 new second-generation 2G Unified Access Service (UAS) licenses were granted to telecom companies on a first-come, first-served basis at the 2001 price. According to the CBI charge sheet, several laws were violated and bribes paid to favour certain firms in granting 2G spectrum licenses. According to a CAG audit, licenses were granted to ineligible corporations, those with no experience in the telecom sector (such as Unitech and Swan Telecom)[14] and those who had concealed relevant information.[15] Although former Prime MinisterManmohan Singh advised Raja to allot 2G spectrum transparently and revise the license fee in a November 2007 letter, Raja rejected many of Singh’s recommendations.[16] In another letter that month, the Ministry of Finance expressed procedural concerns to the DOT;[16] these were ignored, and the cut-off date was moved forward from 1 October 2007 to 25 September.[16] On 25 September, the DOT announced on its website that applicants filing between 3:30 and 4:30 pm that day would be granted licenses.[16] Although the corporation was ineligible, Swan Telecom was granted a license[14] for ₹15.37 billion (US$230 million) and sold a 45-percent share to the UAE-based Etisalat for ₹42 billion (US$620 million).[14] Unitech Wireless (a subsidiary of the Unitech Group) obtained a license for ₹16.61 billion (US$240 million), selling a 60-percent share for₹62 billion (US$910 million) to Norway-based Telenor.[14]

This is a list of companies who received 2G licenses during Raja’s term as telecom minister;[17][18] the licenses were later cancelled by the Supreme Court:[19][20]

Accused parties[edit]

The selling of the licenses drew attention to three groups: politicians and bureaucrats, who had the authority to sell licenses; corporations buying the licenses, and professionals who mediated between the politicians and corporations.

Media role[edit]

Main article: Radia tapes controversy

OPEN and Outlook reported that journalists Barkha Dutt (editor of NDTV) and Vir Sanghvi (editorial director of the Hindustan Times) knew that corporate lobbyist Nira Radia influenced Raja’s appointment as telecom minister,[84] publicising Radia’s phone conversations with Dutt and Sanghvi[85][86] when Radia’s phone was tapped by the Income Tax Department. According to critics, Dutt and Sanghvi knew about the link between the government and the media industry but delayed reporting the corruption.[84]

Licence cancellations[edit]

On 2 February 2012 the Supreme Court ruled on petitions filed by Subramanian Swamy and the Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) represented by Prashant Bhushan, challenging the 2008 allotment of 2G licenses,[207] cancelling all 122 spectrum licences granted during Raja’s term as communications minister.[207] and described the allocation of 2G spectrum as “unconstitutional and arbitrary”.[208] The bench of GS Singhvi and Asok Kumar Ganguly imposed a fine of ₹50 million (US$740,000) on Unitech Wireless, Swan Telecom and Tata Teleservices and a ₹5 million (US$74,000) fine on Loop TelecomS Tel, Allianz Infratech and Sistema Shyam Tele Services.[4] According to the ruling the current licences would remain in place for four months, after which time the government would reissue the licences.[209]

In its ruling the court said that former telecom minister A. Raja “wanted to favour some companies at the cost of the public exchequer”, listing seven steps he took to ensure this:[4][210]

1.     After becoming telecom minister, Raja directed that all applications for spectrum licences would be held pending Telecom Regulatory Authority of India recommendations.[4][210]

2.     The 28 August 2007 TRAI recommendations were not presented to the full Telecom Commission, which would have included the finance secretary. Although the TRAI recommendations for allocation of 2G spectrum had serious financial implications (and finance ministry input was required under the Government of India Transaction of Business Rules, 1961), Telecom Commission non-permanent members were not notified of the meeting.[4][210]

3.     The DoT officers attending the 10 October 2007 Telecom Commission meeting were coerced into approving the TRAI recommendations, or they would have “incurred” Raja’s “wrath”.[4][210]

4.     Since the Cabinet had approved the Group of Ministers recommendations, the DoT had to discuss the issue of spectrum pricing with the finance ministry. However, Raja did not consult the finance minister or other officials because the finance secretary had objected to allocating 2G spectrum at 2001 rates.[4][210]

5.     Raja dismissed the law minister’s suggestion that the issue should be presented to the Group of Ministers. After receiving the PM’s 2 November 2007 letter suggesting transparency in spectrum allocation of the spectrum, Raja said it would be unfair, discriminatory, arbitrary and capricious to auction spectrum to new applicants because it would not give them a level playing field. Although a 24 September DoT press release said that 1 October would be the application deadline, he changed the deadline to 25 September. Raja’s arbitrary action, “though appear[ing] to be innocuous was actually intended to benefit some of the real estate firms who did not have any experience in dealing with telecom services and who had made applications only on 24 September 2007, i.e. one day before the cut-off date fixed by the C&IT minister on his own”.[4][210]

6.     The 25 September cut-off date decided by Raja on 2 November was not made public until a 10 January 2008 press release in which he changed the first-come, first-served principle which had been in operation since 2003. “This enabled some of the applicants, who had access either to the minister or DoT officers, get bank drafts prepared towards performance guarantee of about Rs 16 billion”.[4][210]

7.     “The manner in which the exercise for grant of LoIs to the applicants was conducted on 10 January 2008 leaves no room for doubt that everything was stage managed to favour those who were able to know in advance change in the implementation of the first-come-first-served policy.” As a result, some companies who had submitted applications in 2004 or 2006 were pushed down the list in favour of those who had applied in August and September 2007.[4][210]

Aircel-Maxis deal controversy[edit]

See also: C SivasankaranDayanidhi MaranT Ananda Krishnan, and Maxis Communications

On 6 June 2011 former Aircel chief C. Sivasankaran complained to the CBI about not receiving a telecom licence and being forced by telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran to sell Aircel to the Malaysia-based Maxis Communications group, owned by T. Ananda Krishnan. The licences were allegedly issued after the deal was made. Sivasankaran also alleged that brothers Dayanidhi and Kalanithi Maran received kickbacks in the form of investments by the Maxis group through the Astro network in Sun TV Network, owned by the Maran family.[145][146][147] In the wake of the allegations, Maran resigned on 7 July.[222]

On 10 October, the CBI registered a case and raided properties owned by the Marans. CBI sources said that although no evidence of coercion was found in the Aircel sale, they found substantial evidence that Maran had favoured the company’s takeover by Maxis and deliberately delayed Sivasankar’s files.[145][146][147] On 8 February 2012, the Enforcement Directorate registered a money-laundering case against the Maran brothers[182] for allegedly receiving illegal compensation of about ₹5.5 billion in the Aircel-Maxis deal.[183]

During the CBI probe Sivasankaran said that the Maran brothers had forced him to sell his 74% share in Aircel to Maxis by threatening his life, giving the CBI a list of over 10 witnesses. In September 2012, the CBI said it finished its Indian investigation and was awaiting the response to a letter rogatory sent to Malaysia and a questionnaire from T. Ananda Krishnan before filing a chargesheet.[223] On 29 August 2014, the CBI filed a chargesheet against Dayanidhi Maran, his brother Kalanithi Maran, Malaysian businessman T Ananda Krishnan, Malaysian national Augustus Ralph Marshall, six others and four firms — Sun Direct TV Pvt Ltd, Maxis Communication Berhad, Astro All Asia Network PLC and South Asia Entertainment Holding Ltd as accused in the case.[224] On 29 October 2014, special CBI judge OP Saini said that he found enough evidence to proceed with the prosecution and hence summoned former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran and others as accused.[225] Based on the CBI chargesheet, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on 1 April 2015, attached Maran brothers’ properties worth Rs 742 crore.[226]

Subramanian Swamy alleged that in 2006 a company controlled by Karti Chidambaram, the son of Minister of FinanceP. Chidambaram, received a five-percent share of Aircel to get part of₹40 billion paid by Maxis Communications for the 74-percent share of Aircel. According to Swamy, Chidambaram withheld Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance of the deal until his son received the five-percent share in Siva’s company.[227] The issue was raised a number of times in Parliament by the opposition, which demanded Chidambaram’s resignation.[228]Although he and the government denied the allegations,[229]The Pioneer and India Today reported the existence of documents showing that Chidambaram delayed approval of the foreign direct investment proposal by about seven months.[227][230][231]

Response to scam[edit]

When Indian media began citing the CAG report identifying the loss at ₹1.76 trillion (short scale), the Indian opposition parties unanimously demanded the formation of a joint parliamentary committee to investigate the scam.[232][233] Although the government rejected their demand,[233] when the winter session of Parliament began on 9 November 2010 the opposition again pressed for a JPC; again, their demand was rejected.[233] The demand for a JPC gained further momentum when the CAG report was tabled in Parliament on 16 November 2010.[234] The opposition blocked the proceedings, again pressing for a JPC;[235] the government again rejected their demand, creating an impasse.[236]Speaker of the Lok SabhaMeira Kumarunsuccessfully attempted to resolve the impasse.[237] The winter session of Parliament concluded on 13 December 2010. Although 22 new bills were planned to be introduced, 23 pending bills passed and three bills withdrawn, Parliament functioned for only nine hours.[238] On 22 February 2011, after resisting opposition demands for over three months, the government announced that it would form a JPC.[239] The JPC criticised the CBI for its leniency to the PM, the Attorney General, Dayanidhi Maran and Chidambaram and its reluctance to investigate their roles on 24 July 2012.[240] After questioning former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran, his brother Kalanithi and the head of Maxis Communications, the CBI alleged that the Maran brothers accrued an illegal ₹5.50 billion by the sale of Sun Direct TV shares at highly “inflated prices”.[241]

In early November 2010 Jayalalithaa accused state chief minister M Karunanidhi of protecting Raja from corruption charges, calling for Raja’s resignation.[242] By mid-November, Raja resigned.[243] At that time, comptroller Vinod Rai issued show-cause notices to Unitech, S Tel, Loop Mobile, Datacom (Videocon) and Etisalat to respond to his assertion that the 85 licenses granted to these companies did not have the capital required at application or were otherwise illegal.[244] It was speculated that because these companies provide some consumer service, they would receive large fines but retain their licenses.[244]

In June 2011 Prime Minister Manmohan Singh criticised the CAG for commenting on policy issues, warning it “to limit the office to the role defined in the constitution.”[245] After Singh’s criticism the CAG conducted a “rigorous internal appraisal” and stood by its findings, citing additional events as corroboration. The CAG reiterated that there was “an undeniable loss to the exchequer”, the calculation of which was based on three estimates: the 3G auctions and the Swan and Unitech transactions. It cited the Supreme Court ruling of 2 February 2012 that the actions of Raja and officers at the Department of Telecom were “wholly arbitrary, capricious and contrary to the public interest, apart from being violative of the doctrine of equality. The material produced for the quote showed that the Minister for C&IT wanted to favour some companies at the cost of the public exchequer.” It said its estimate of loss of 1.76-lakh crore was justified, since the May 2012 TRAI collation of reserve prices for 2G spectrum was about the same as that in the November 2010 CAG report. TRAI had recommended a reserve price for 2G spectrum of ₹180 billion for a pan-India 5 MHz licence, higher than the 3G value of ₹167.50 billion for 5 MHz used by the CAG for arriving at a loss figure of ₹1,760 billion. It concluded that it was only examining the “implementation of policy”, and policy-making was the government’s prerogative.[246]

Raid  by  Karnataka lokayukta on police officials

seizure of crores worth illegal wealth

KINDLY REVIEW ALL THE PREVIOUS OFFICIAL ACTIONS OF THESE CORRUPT OFFICIALS AS THERE ARE EVERY POSSIBILITY OF INNOCENTS SUFFERRING INJUSTICES & RICH CRIMINALS GOING SCOT FREE.

in our neighbourhood , in our society private sector employees earning rs.10000 monthly income are finding it hard to meet ends , whereas many of the government officials earning lesser salary than that are leading luxurious lifestyles , how ?

Just yesterday Karnataka lokayukta raided & apprehended high police officials for possessing crores worth illegal wealth much above their stated legal incomes.

recently in the last week Karnataka lokayukta raided , seized illegal wealth of corrupt police , transport officials. The corruption is wide spread in public service including Karnataka lokayukta , central vigilance commission & CBI itselves. In 2006, when Karnataka lokayukta arrested 5 corrupt police officials & taking them in police jeep , 2 corrupt police officials escaped like petty criminals in cinematic manner.

There are vast number of corrupt public servants who are continuing their crimes unabetted due to their sharing arrangements with their higher ups. Only a minute number of corrupt are being booked, by the efforts of honest few in Karnataka lokayukta , CVC & CBI . The paradox is that the government instead of legally prosecuting those criminals – corrupt officials , is sitting over their files for years & have reinstated , promoted tainted officials.

Why do rich people / criminals pay bribe to police ? definitely not for charity , but not to mention their names in the FIR , to let them continue their crimes unabetted , to suppress evidences / witnesses , not to make their arrests , to conduct improper investigations , to close a case with B report , not to produce evidences / witnesses before the court , to fix-up poor innocents , to force the poor innocents to do the bidding of rich criminals , etc .

As a result of these sell out of police duties , rich criminals are going scot free , poor innocents are suffering in jail & corrupt police are amassing illegal wealth.

In the same way corrupt health department officials / doctors are selling out post mortem reports , medical certificates for a price , giving out certificates of legal compliance to adulterated food / medicine manufacturers , thereby killing thousands of people in their selfish greed to make more money.

The labour / pollution control board officials are selling out certicates , to criminal industrialists who are indulging in unfair labour practices , occupational hazards , thereby killing poor people , in their greed to make a fortune.

The tax officials are making lesser / favourable tax assessments favouring  industrialists /traders for a price, aiding them to evade tax. As a result the public exchequer is loosing money , for it’s social welfare , defence , other programmes. The ill-gotten wealth of industrialists / traders ie BLACK MONEY is disturbing our national economy & finding it’s way to underworld , mafia & terrorist outfits.

The corrupt police , tax officials , public servants are worse parasites than britishers . the threat & damge to india’s security , integrity is more from these criminals – corrupt public servants than from USA , CHINA or PAKISTAN.

God save my country . jai hind. Vande mataram.

AN APPEAL TO HONOURABLE KARNATAKA LOKAYUKTA , CENTAL VIGILANCE COMMISSIONER & DIRECTOR CENTRAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

Hereby , we do call upon Karnataka lokayukta , central vigilance commission & CBI

  1. To stop accepting all government officials  reports , reports as sacrosanct documents , most truthful evidences.
  2. to publish wealth details of it’s own staff & all public servants department wise annually with provision for cross verification by public.
  3. to make it mandatory for all public servants including judges , constitutional functionaries to submit annual wealth statements on affidavit & to make it public with provision for cross verification by public.
  4. to initiate legal action for those giving false statements on affidavit.
  5. the corrupt public servants who intentionally give false information or hide information under one pretext or the other while information is sought under RTI Act , all with a view to hide crimes must be legally prosecuted as criminals as in normal legal recourse persons who help criminals in destroying evidences , crimes are prosecuted.
  6. the corrupt officials don’t leave evidences in open. Their higher ups who have taken kick backs from their corrupt subordinate always give a favourable report about him. So, during legal prosecution those reports must not be relied upon. In fact , there is a gross mismatch between government reports & ground reality. Take for example , in mysore construction is going on in INFOSYS campus on huge scale . most of the construction workers are not even covered by statuotary requirement  of ESI , PF. The occupational hazards are more , accidents are common place , recently even deaths of workers  have occurred due to occupational hazards . in the media also it was reported , in the media report it was even mentioned that vijayanagar police have registered a case & investigating. However  when the information about it was sought from labour commissioner of Karnataka as per RTI Act , assistant labour commissioner of mysore has stated that no occupational deaths have taken place in either 2006 or 2007. SEE THE GROUND REALITY IS DIFFERENT WHEREAS THE GOVERNMENT RECORD , LABOUR DEPARTMENT RECORDS SING A DIFFERENT TUNE. THE FAILURE IN OUR DEMOCRACY IS THAT THESE FAKE  RECORDS , STATEMENTS OF GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS  ARE TAKEN AS ULTIMATE TRUTH BY  COURTS OF LAW & PROSECUTING AUTHORITIES. I can give more actual examples like this.
  7. so , involve public in the inspection teams , raiding parties of tax department , labour department , excise department , drugs control , weights & measures , etc. these public can put a check to the corrupt practices , fake records of these corrupt government officials.
  8. kindly do remember that in 2006-07 , a  corrupt judge was exposed by media efforts. The said corrupt judge in his urgency to collect bribe has not even looked at the INTENDED PERSONS TO BE ARRESTED & blindly signed the copies of arrest warrant . the arrest warrant was against H.E . PRESIDENT OF INDIA , HONOURABLE CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA & HONOURABLE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA. As in the normal working of government machinery if it was pursued , president of India , chief justice of India & prime minister of India should have been arrested. Technically speaking it was right. However common sense prevailed & the higher judiciary took appropriate action as the issue concerned VVIPs. Normally our courts of law , authorities work without common sense like horses of horse cart whose eyes are partially covered allowing only narrow vision , just by relying on government reports , records of corrupt public servants. The courts , authorities just functions by technicalities. This must stop for the sake  of justice , fairness.
  9. when a public makes complaint to Karnataka lokayukta , CVC or CBI about corrupt practices of a public servant , they must stop relying on the legal opinion of it’s own advocates  as they just rely on government records. Take for example the wrong legal opinion of legal expert of Karnataka lokayukta. The lokayukta has legal jurisdiction to inquire into all Karnataka state government institutions & organizations funded , supported by government of  Karnataka. There are other examples where In Karnataka lokayukta has taken action against employees of Karnataka government aided institutions . The PES COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING  mandya is funded & aided by government of Karnataka , but when we made a complaint regarding corruption in that institution , the legal expert of Karnataka lokayukta gave his expert opinion that the said institution is out of lokayukta’s legal jurisdiction , so no action is called for . based on this opinion Karnataka lokayukta rejected my complaint. Some of these legal experts are indirectly covering up criminals , stop relying on their expert opinions.
  10. when a complaint is given to Karnataka lokayukta , CVC or CBI  they in turn ask the complainant himself for supporting evidences , records. The government has given them vast police force to enforce law , to inquire & to collect evidences. How can a commoner can collect evidences , the criminal don’t leave evidences in open , all the commoner can do is make complaint regarding the injustices he has suffered. The complaints must be accepted & inquired into  with or without evidences , lack of evidences should not be the sole reason for dismissal of complaint as presently Karnataka lokayukta , CVC & CBI are  doing .
  11. review all the past official decisions of corrupt officials apprehended by Karnataka lokayukta , CVC & CBI. As there are possibilities of innocents suffering injustices  & rich criminals going scot free.

WHO WILL BELL THE CORRUPT FEW  AMONG INDIAN JUDICIARY  & INDIAN POLICE ?

When the fence itself eats into the crop which it has to protect , when the doctor himself kills the patient whom he has to treat , when the mother supposed protect her child kills it herself , when the king supposed to protect his subjects himself kills them ,  WHEN THE  POLICE & JUDGE  SUPPOSED TO GIVE JUSTICE , PROTECT HIS CITTIZENS HIMSELF MEATS OUT INJUSTICE , where to appeal ? it is nothing but anarchy. These corrupt few are also bringing disgrace to the august institutions they occupy & are also making contempt of those very offices they hold & making contempt of citizens of India.

Who will dare to bell  the fat , corrupt cats & save democracy in India.

Your’s sincerely,

Nagaraj.M.R.

INDIAN JUDICIARY UNDER RTI PURVIEW

The corrupt  among public servants always give a ruse ,  reason to escape from accountability. Recently government of Karnataka under  president’s rule has enacted a rule limiting the number of informations sought in RTI application to 3 . already bureaucrats are successful in exempting official file notings from RTI purview. These file notings are the basis on which official decisions are taken by superiors , so if one wants to know the intention behind an official decision it is imperative to know all the notings.

Police apply 3rd degree torture on accussed , ask questions for hours  in the name of extracting truth , the same police are afraid to answer questions lest the truth come out.

In the courts of law , numerous questions are asked , cross examination done to extract truth . if one remains silent it amounts to confession / agreeing to all charges leveled. In courts of law , during cross examination one must give straight forward answers , one cann’t give vague answers nor state excuses for not answering a question. If one doesn’t give straight forward answers that also is considered as agrreing to the charges levelled.  The courts go to any length to extract answers to it’s questions , take for example rape cases in the backdrop of our Indian tradition. In the courts of law , the rape victim  – woman who has already suffered injustice , shame is made to depose before male judges , lawyers who are total strangers and made to repeatedly explain how the crime of rape was committed. So once again the victim is made to suffer more shame in the society. For the courts answers to questions , cross examination  , legal procedures is more important than  honour of woman.  The very same judges are afraid to answer questions , cross examination under one pretext or the other lest the truth come out.

Even our people’s representatives – MPs , MLAs , etc are afraid to speak out truth , to honour RTI act citing legal privileges , etc. in India , during appointment of persons to government service back ground check & clearance by police is mandatory & during appointment  into sensitive defense , space , atomic energy establishments , etc  apart  from police verification , investigation by intelligence agencies is a must. No such thing for our MLAs , MPs . However now criminalization of politics is almost in India , some of the accussed  are drafting laws like IPC , Indian defense rules , police code , purviews of judiciary , etc. they are drafting laws to legalise their crimes. The election commission of India is not properly verifying the affidavits of candidates , also the vigilance authorities , lokayukthas are not properly verifying the affidavits of sitting MLAs , MPs , etc.

More than RTI ACT , to seek information is part of every Indian citizen’s fundamental rights & human rights , RTI ACT is just fulfilling that right  partly & fixing a time frame. Nobody , no constitutional functionary is higher than Indian citizens , nobody’s privileges  or any laws prevailing over the fundamental rights & duties of Indian citizens is constitutional , just or legal . The shame is that even after 60 years of independence , FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & DUTIES OF INDIAN CITIZENS is observed more in breach than implementation , by our public servants including the judiciary .

Hereby , we urge all the public servants – judges , police , people’s representatives to honour RTI ACT , to honour Indian citizen’s fundamental & human rights and to facilitate them to perform their fundamental duties. The silence of public servants to the questions asked or vague answers , ruses by public servants amounts to confessions , agreeing  to the questions , charges leveled & crimes committed .

Let the TRUTH prevail. Jai hind. Vande mataram.

Your’s sincerely,

Judiciary under RTI Act, says parliamentary panel

New Delhi, April 29
A parliamentary committee today held that judiciary comes under the purview of the Right to Information law with regard to all activities of administration except “judicial decision making.” “Except the judicial decision making, all other activities of administration and the persons included in it (judiciary) are subject to RTI Act,” said the report of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Law and Justice.

The opinion of the committee headed by E.M. Sudarsana Natchiappanan comes against the backdrop of a raging controversy over whether the judiciary comes under the RTI purview. Chief Justice of India K.G. Balakrishnan had recently said the CJI is a constitutional authority and does not come within the purview of the RTI Act.

The committee, which went into the demands of grants for the personnel ministry and discussed the interpretation of Section 2 (h) of the RTI Act, that is, definition of public authority, said the provision is very clear that all constitutional authorities come under the definition of public authority. The committee had examined in detail every clause of the RTI Act, 2004 and was conscious of the fact that all wings of the state, executive, legislature and judiciary, are fully covered under this Act since all organs of the state are accountable to the citizens of India in a democratic state. “It is more so since the judiciary is having a dual role as (i) administrative function and (ii) judicial decision making.

INDIAN JUDICIAL & LEGAL SYSTEM INDIRECTLY IN THE CLUTCHES OF MAFIA

In India , justice , equality & democracy an illusion . all those words are only there is in statuette books , but not in practice . the rich & mighty crooks are committing gravest crimes & escaping from the hands of law by manipulating evidences , by bribing the public servants to create favourable government reports , records. Poor
people who have suffered injustices are not getting justice due to lack of evidences & government reports , records to prove their case.


CORRUPTION IS THERE RIGHT FROM GOVERNMENT MATERNITY HOSPITAL UPTO
GRAVEYARD , THROUGHT THE WALK OF ONE’S LIFE.

The corrupt public servants are more cruel , damaging criminals than our previous british oppressors or dawood ibrahim & other under world dons. The gravest threat , damages to india’s security & national integrity is more from these corrupt public servants than Pakistan or china or other terrorist outfits. These corrupt public servants can stoop to any level in their greed for money. The present state affairs is a shame to our political & legal system and a barometer , indicator to their efficiency.

Recently , we have seen in the media , how people of bihar meated out mob justice to a criminal , that will be the fate of corrupt police , doctors , other officials in the future. But the violence is not the answer , that will only lead towards anarchy. We must establish true democracy of bapuji’s dreams , true freedom , equality for all in practice for which so many of our fore fathers , freedom fighters sacrificed their life for.

THE ANSWER LIES IN ACCOUNTABILITY OF PUBLIC SERVANTS , ALL CONSTITUTIONAL FUNCTIONARIES INCLUDING JUDGES , TO THEIR PAY MASTERS  –  MONARCHS OF DEMOCRACY ie CITIZENS OF DEMOCRATIC INDIA. Hope this will dawn on our public servants that they are PUBLIC SERVANTS NOT PUBLIC MASTERS.

Failure of RTI Act in India

In the clutches of corrupt public servants mafia

In the courts of law , every statement to be valid must be supported by evidences. That too, the statements of public servants / government officials & their reports in government records are considered as sacrosanct , the ultimate gospel truth by courts of law.

The corruption has spread it’s  tentacles  far & wide in the public service. The bribe booty is shared by lower to higher officials. If an official is complained against , his higher official conducts a formal investigation & reports in the record that lower official is not guilty.

The vigilance authorities / Karnataka lokayukta has recently raided on police , tax officials & seized illegal wealth amounting to crores of rupees. Take the recent case where in senior IPS officer , superintendent of police chamarajanagar , mr.srikantappa was arrested by Karnataka lokayukta. The victims spoke to media that he used to threaten them with false cases. In this way , how many victims / innocents were arrested & tortured by his arrest warrants ? how many innocents suffered in false cases ? how many rich criminals got scot free , by srikantappa’s filing of B reports leading to closure of cases ?

In the past how many suffered by srikantappa’s actions ? has the court subjected to review all the previous actions of srikantappa throught his corrupt career ? if not , why ?

The courts of law has taken the official reports , records of mr.srikantappa as gospel truth & indirectly aided rich criminals & harmed innocents. It is the same case with respect to reports of all government officials � police , labour , tax , etc.  the rich criminals buy out  government officials & make them write favourable report about themselves. Whereas the poor , innocents suffer from adverse reports & injustices. The courts of law takes the government records at it’s face value & meat out injustices to the poor , innocents while aiding the rich criminals.

When a commoner requests for information as per RTI Act , the government officials either give incomplete information , false information or decline to give information under one pretext or the other. The officials are damn sure that the truthful information  will be detrimental to themselves  & will be  taken as evidence against themselves in the courts of law. So information , truth is not given. Even information commissions are failing here. Thereby, the public are denied to seek justice in the courts of law , by lack of evidences.

The courts of law before accepting the records of government officials , must subject it to a “test of truth”. When a government report is contested against , a fact finding team comprising members of public , complainant , respondent & the court , must check it out at the ground level. Orelse when a complainant says that the report of a government official � police , labour , tax , etc as false that government official must be subjected to lie detector test , narco-analysis, ertc by court of law. The questionnaire ie the questions to be asked during the scientific test are to be prepared with feedback from both complainant & respondent’s side. In that way , impartially truth can be found out. After all , the objective of courts of law is “Quest for Truth”, not just giving out judgements based on reports of corrupt officials.

Nowadays , we are even seeing reports of corruption among the judiciary itself. If a complaint against a judge is made out that a level ground is not provided to put up one’s case in the court or cross examination of one party is not allowed or lie detector test / narco analysis of one party is not allowed ( in turn taking the lies of that party as truth ), the judge making a varied interpretation of law, the judge not safe guarding the health & life of the complainant in the custody of police leading to 3rd degree torture of complainant by police , etc, in all such cases the supreme court of India must change the presiding judge of such cases , the cases must be thoroughly reviewed & the guilty judge must be subjected to narco-analysis , lie detector test , etc & legally prosecuted. In this back drop , accountability of police & judges to the public ie citizens of India � kings of democracy , is a must. After all , the kings of democracy / citizens of India / taxpayers  are the paymasters of all public servants.

We at e � voice of human rights of watch have utmost respect for the judiciary & all government institutions. It is the corrupt few in those institutions who are themselves bringing disgrace to the august institutions they occupy , by their corrupt deeds. The saving grace is that still honest few are left in public service & it is an appeal to them , to legally prosecute their corrupt colleagues.

In India , the private enterprises are the wealth creators of our economy. However , some private enterprises are violating labour laws , tax laws , human rights & fundamental rights of people. In turn harming the public , looting the tax dues. This is creating black money causing various social evils in the society. These huge private enterprises take loans from public sector banks ie take public’s money as loans , collect money from public in the form of shares , debentures , sell their product to the public. Still , they are not covered by RTI Act, they don’t give truthful information to the public nor allow public inspection of their sites , why ? they buy out concerned government officials & gets them to write favourable report about themselves. There are wide differences between the ground reality & these government reports. If the aggrieved person , victim of injustices meated out by these private enterprises , tries to legally seek justice, these criminal private enterprises buy out police , concerned officials & fixes up the victim in false cases. The police in total disregard to law violates the human rights & fundamental rights of the victim in custody , subjects the victim to 3rd degree torture in custody. The presiding judge of the case doesn’t safe guard the rights , health , life of victims in custody. The judge doesn’t check out the truthfulness of government reports & passes on judgement making varied interpretation of just remember the case of “local citizens vs coca cola company” in plachimada , kerala.

Is it not right & just in such cases , to subject the presiding judge , police , concerned government officialds & most importantly key officials of that criminal private enterprise to lie detector , narco- analysis tests , to know the truth ? is it not right to conduct the inspection of alleged site , review of all company’s records , by a team comprising of members from public , court , complainant & respondent ?

Some of these criminal enterprises threaten to finish off the poor victims . as these company’s have money power they can buy out rowdies , police & capable of doing anything. In such cases , if anything untoward happens to the victim or his family , are not the officials of such criminal enterprise liable to pay compensation to the victims’s family or survivors ?

In India , do we truly have democracy & freedom ? is this corrupt India � what our freedom fighters dreamt of & fought for ?

Editorial :  Cross  Examination of Judges & Police

Honourable CJI , Union Home Secretary ,  Chief Justices , DG & IG  of Police of all States , UTs  FIRST   Answer   Questions

Our  whole hearted respects  to  honest  few  working  in  judiciary , police & public service. Our  comments  are  only directed  towards  corrupt  judges  , corrupt police , corrupt  public servants and the term “JUDGE” includes all public officials performing judicial , quasi judicial functions.

Judges , Police are  NOT answering our  following RTI Questions NOR admitting our PILs since years. Both  of  them  are  denying  information   leading  to  crimes , covering up crimes.  Thereby , both of them  are aiding anti nationals , criminals.  Who will prosecute these guilty judges & police ?

Powers that be , cabinet ministers , judges are simply  sending my petitions  to  police , to ensure closure of  files. In most of the cases police does not have the  power  nor  jurisdiction  and in the remaining cases   they need  written legal sanction from  president of india  or  governor or  from their  ministry  head   to  legally  prosecute  high  &  mighty  but  legal  sanctions are not given.  Ultimate  aim of  the  judges , ministers , police  is  to  close  the  file  , to bury  the  TRUTH.  They  transfer the case to  police ,  so  that  under the threat of  khaki power   complainant  becomes  silent.

I have  been summoned  to  police  station  tens  of  times  without   legal  summons  to  give  statements , by  the way  I have  lost  money , daily wages , transportation cost. No compensation for that  were paid to me. Rich , mighty  criminals were not even summoned once why ?   Police  question  commoners   for  hours  in some  cases  even  apply  3rd  degree   TORTURE  on common  people   to get  answers. Why  police  are   NOT  questioning   rich  , mighty  criminals ,  criminals  within the police force & judiciary , why  NOT  police  are  applying  3rd  degree TORTURE  on  those  CRIMINAL  POLICE  , JUDGEs  to elicit  truth  in national interest.

In  courts of  justice  , common people  are  subjected  to  rigorous  questioning  by  prosecution , defense lawyers and  judges. In  the  same  way  when  you  judges &  police themselves  are in the dock , why  can not  you be questioned  to elicit truth in national interest. Are  YOU  Judges &  Police  special , exceptions , above  LAW ?

My  petitions  have  been transferred  tens  of times  to police  whether  they have  jurisdiction over it , whether they have legal  sanction  to enquire it or  NOT. All the files  were closed  by  recording  my statement  without  any  enquiry  of  high , mighty criminals.  We  need  JUSTICE  in  all  the  cases , before  summoning me to police  station  summon  high , mighty  criminals  to  police  station  FIRST , before  questioning  me  YOU  Judges  and  Police  ANSWER  our  questions   FIRST ,  act  on  our  PILs  FIRST.  We  the public  want to know  under  who’s  behest  you  JUDGEs , POLICE  are  burying  the  truth , cases , files ,  our   appeals.

Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

 “Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts.  They will fight among themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the  forewarning of  Late Winston Churchill  has been proved right by  some of our  criminal , corrupt people’s representatives , police , public servants &  Judges.  Some of the below  mentioned  judges  fall among the category of churchill’s men –  Rogues  , Rascals & Freebooters.

 Eventhough  the information is readily available with SCI , information was denied citing unavailability.  If at all information is not truly available , why didn’t the   CPIO  TRANSFER rti  application to concerned departments of SCI  , Ministry of Law , Justice , Respective High Courts , etc.

Does not court administarative officer  posess  SERVICE REECORDS of each employee including judges. If not on what basis they give promotions , transfers , salary , etc to judges ? The person  who posess SR  can give infor mation about guilty judges. Why CPIO not asking that person to share infor mation ?

If a commonman is alleged of a petty crime he is immediately arrested , put behind bars. Police spend thousands of rupees for investigation to  prosecute  that petty criminal. Judges spend hours to hear that case & prepare judgements running into tens of pages sometimes even over & above thousand pages. Fine . When the very same police & judge themselves committ grave crimes detrimental to national security , integrity , etc , no arrests , no prosecution only cover-up , WHY ? Are Judges & Police above Law ? Is  Judge’s  MAFIA  at play ?

The  action  of  CPIO  SCI  amounts  to cover up  of judges & their crimes. Thereby  , CPIO  is also committing  a crime. With respect  to previous RTI Appeals  also  CPIO & RTI  First Appellate Authority  SCI  have repeatedly  committed  crimes  by  covering up  judges & their crimes.  Billions of indians  are barely sustaining on a single piece meal a day , we lower middle class people toiling hard to earn a few hundreds of rupees but still paying tax. Is it not shame to them  / shame to JUDGEs that they  draw  pay  &  perks  amounting to lakhs of rupees from our money , from taxes paid by us still not do their  constitutional duties properly.

 GIVE  WHAT  ACTION HAS BEEN  TAKEN AGAINST  THE  GUILTY JUDGES   MENTIONED  IN THE BELOW MENTIONED WEB SITES & FOLLOWING  ARTICLES.

 We salute honest few in public service ,  Judiciary , police , parliament  & state  legislative assemblies. our whole hearted respects to them.  HEREBY , I DO HUMBLY REQUEST YOU TO GIVE ME WRITTEN STATEMENTS / ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS – WHICH IN ITSELF ( ie answers ) ARE THE INFORMATION SOUGHT BY ME. HERE WITH I AM SEEKING NOT THE OPINIONS ABOUT SOME HYPOTHETICAL ISSUES , BUT YOUR OFFICIAL STAND , LEGAL STAND ON ISSUES WHICH ARE OF FREQUENT OCCURRENCE WHICH ARE VIOLATING PEOPLE’S FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS. WE DO HAVE HIGHEST RESPECTS FOR JUDICIARY & ALL PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS , THIS IS AN APPEAL FOR TRUTH , INFORMATION SO THAT TO APPREHEND CORRUPT FEW IN PUBLIC SERVICE, WHO ARE AIDING & ABETTING TERRORISM , UNDERWORLD & CRIMINALS.  I  HAVE SHOWN IN DETAIL WITH LIVE , ACTUAL CASES , EXAMPLES , HOW INDIAN LEGAL SYSTEM IS MANIPULATED BY CRIMINALS  WITHIN JUDICIARY , POLICE , PROSECUTION , ETC.

 Hereby ,  we  do request  CPIO  O/O  Honourable Chief Justice of India  , Supreme Court  of India , New Delhi  to answer the following questions in public interest , for safeguarding national security ,  National unity & integrity & to legally apprehend anti-nationals , criminals within the judiciary & police. Judges are not superior human beings , some of them have even became judges through devious means other than merit , integrity. Judges  are public servants drawing salary & perks from public exchequer  and accountable to public as any other  common man  is.

Please give following  information  :

Main  A :

1.    Please give me The address  of salary disbursing officer in supreme court of india. Salary disbursing officer will be maintaining service records  of all employees of supreme court of india including judges. These records are used for disciplinary action , promotion , transfer of judges. If not within SCI , please give the address of the  outside public  official who maintains  service records of supreme court  judges and kindly compile  information from him and give it to me  orelse  transfer my RTI application to him.

2.    Please give me the list of serving as well as retired supreme court judges with allegations against them and the action taken thereof. Reasons for taking action / criminal prosecution  or not taking action.

3.    Please give me the list of serving as well as retired  high  court judges with allegations against them and the action taken thereof. Reasons for taking action / criminal prosecution  or not taking action.

4.    Please give me the list of serving as well as retired  district & taluk  court judges with allegations against them and the action taken thereof. Reasons for taking action / criminal prosecution  or not taking action.

5.    Some of the high courts are demanding higher RTI application fees  than stipulated by law. Eventhough  requisite fees  has been paid  before transfer of RTI application to high courts. Please give me the details of action taken by supreme court of india  against erring high courts.

6.    Give me the List of petitions  with date  made by Shri . Nagaraja Mysore Raghupathi alias Nagaraja M R  TO SUPREME COURT OF INDIA THROUGH POST , THROUGH E-MAIL & THROUGH   website  of  DPG / DARPG.  Action taken or not taken with reasons thereof with respect to each petition.

7.    Please give me list of actions , follow up actions taken by supreme  court of india , to safe guard the  HUMAN RIGHTS & FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS of  Nagaraja M R editor of SOS e Clarion of Dalit  & SOS e Voice for justice. He repeatedly  appealed to SCI  highlighting  violations of his human rights & fundamental rights. After appealing to SCI only  editor Nagaraja M R suffered more injustices , attempts on his life , etc  , may  be JUDGE’s MAFIA  is in deal with outside MAFIA. Police are helpless & practically don’t have  power to question supreme court judges & other VVIPs. Did SCI constitute SCI monitored enquiry committee  with full legal authority to look into the issue.  

8.    Judges preach too much & practice less. They give  lectures , judgements   running into hundreds  of pages  eliciting legality, moral virtues , humanity , etc.  But cover up information leading to crimes / accountability of judges.  The judges  committee  like a mafia deals it within  without subjecting the accussed judge to public scrutiny & public trial. It is almost similar to a  whore / bitch  giving a lecture on virginity  to women.  To refresh your memory  , Please  go through following websites  to  know about facts , actual cases of  crimes by judges. Please give us information  regarding action taken or not taken with reasons there of  with respect to each case mentioned in the  following websites:

Please give me the list of action taken or not taken  by supreme court of india  with reasons  thereof  in each case.

12.  Please give me the list of action taken against  by supreme court of india  against  CPIO &  PIO  of supreme court of india  , who repeatedly failed to give  me information . thereby , CPIO & PIO are covering up crimes of guilty judges , violating RTI Act & violating human rights / fundamental rights of editor Nagaraja M R together with public.

APPEAL UNDER SEC 19 (3) OF RTI ACT 2005 OF GOVERNMENT OF INDIA & GOVERNMENT OF KARNATAKA 

 

FULL NAME OF THE APPLICANT : NAGARAJA.M.R.

ADDRESS OF THE APPLICANT : NAGARAJA.M.R.,

EDITOR , SOS E-VOICE JUSTICE  & SOS E-CLARION OF DALIT ,

# LIG-2 / 761, OPP WATER WORKS OFFICE,

HUDCO FIRST STAGE, LAXMIKANTANAGAR,

HEBBAL, MYSORE , KARNATAKA  PIN – 570017.

 

“Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts.  They will fight among themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the  forewarning of  Late Winston Churchill  has been proved right by  some of our  criminal , corrupt people’s representatives , police , public servants &  Judges.  Some of the below  mentioned  judges  fall among the category of churchill’s men –  Rogues  , Rascals & Freebooters.

Eventhough  the information is readily available with SCI , information was denied citing unavailability.  If at all information is not truly available , why didn’t the   CPIO  TRANSFER rti  application to concerned departments of SCI  , Ministry of Law , Justice , Respective High Courts , etc.

Does not court administarative officer  posess  SERVICE REECORDS of each employee including judges. If not on what basis they give promotions , transfers , salary , etc to judges ? The person  who posess SR  can give infor mation about guilty judges. Why CPIO not asking that person to share infor mation ?

If a commonman is alleged of a petty crime he is immediately arrested , put behind bars. Police spend thousands of rupees for investigation to  prosecute  that petty criminal. Judges spend hours to hear that case & prepare judgements running into tens of pages sometimes even over & above thousand pages. Fine . When the very same police & judge themselves committ grave crimes detrimental to national security , integrity , etc , no arrests , no prosecution only cover-up , WHY ? Are Judges & Police above Law ?

The  action  of  CPIO  SCI  amounts  to cover up  of judges & their crimes. Thereby  , CPIO  is also committing  a crime. With respect  to previous RTI Appeals  also  CPIO & RTI  First Appellate Authority  SCI  have repeatedly  committed  crimes  by  covering up  judges & their crimes.  Billions of indians  are barely sustaining on a single piece meal a day , we lower middle class people toiling hard to earn a few hundreds of rupees but still paying tax. Is it not shame to them  / shame to JUDGEs that they  draw  pay  &  perks  amounting to lakhs of rupees from our money , from taxes paid by us still not do their  constitutional duties properly.

GIVE  WHAT  ACTION HAS BEEN  TAKEN AGAINST  THE  GUILTY JUDGES   MENTIONED  IN THE BELOW MENTIONED WEB SITES & FOLLOWING  ARTICLES.

At the outset , we express  our whole hearted respects to the honest few  public servants in public service including judiciary. However, the corrupt in public service don’t deserve  respect as individuals – as they are  parasites in our legal system. Still we respect the chairs they occupy but not the corrupt individuals.

All the following articles / issues , whole articles published in the weblinks mentioned below forms part of this appeal. The term “JUDGE”mentioned throught includes all public servants  discharging  judicial functions right from taluk magistrates , quasi-judicial officers to Chief Justice of India.

Indian Legal / Judicial System is manipulated at various stages & is for sale. It is a SHAME. The persons who raise  their voice seeking justice  are silenced in many ways. The criminal nexus has already attempted to silence me in many ways . If anything untoward happens to me or to my family members , my dependents , Honourable Chief Justice of India together with jurisdictional police officer will be responsible  for it.

Hereby, we do once again offer our conditional services to the honourable supreme court of India & other government authorities, in apprehending criminals including corrupt judges & police. Herewith  , we once  again  appeal to the honourable supreme court of India , to consider this as a PIL Appeal in public interest.

The public servants & the government must be role models in law  abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the  teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot- free under his patronage.  even if a police , public  servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the  aggrieved. just think , if a judge himself that too of apex court of the land itself commits crime – violations of RTI Act , constitutional  rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the public from  performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ? it  gives a booster dose to the rich & mighty , those in power , criminals  in public service to committ more crimes. that is exactly what is  happenning in india. the educated public must raise to the occassion &  peacefully , democratically  must oppose this criminalisation of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can build a RAM RAJYA OF  MAHATMA GANDHI’S DREAM.

 

Kindly go through the following articles & provide justice by giving complete truthful information to us , by publicly answering the following questionnaire in an unambiguous  manner.

 The constitution of India has prescribed certain FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES to each citizens of India. It is the duty of every citizen to protect & uphold the dignity , honour of our democratic institutions , to
protect our national integrity , to respect & protect the rights of our fellow citizens. No constitutional authority has  the right to obstruct the discharge of these duties by citizens of India. No legal  privileges of constitutional functionaries is superior over the  FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES OF CITIZEN’S OF INDIA.

We need rights to perform our duties. Constitution of India has guaranteed those rights as FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS to all citizens of India & by birth itself everyone of us has secured HUMAN RIGHTS as individuals. To express ourselves , we need information , data feed  back , to ascertain whether we are getting equal opportunity , whether  we are getting equitable justice , etc , we need information . so ,
basically Right To Information  is an inalienable part of our  fundamental rights & human rights. What RTI Act has done is fixed time  limit , responsibilities of public servants up to  certain extent. However the citizen’s fundamental right & human right to seek  information extends far beyond the scope of RTI Act.

Hereby , we seek complete  truthful information from supreme court of India , with respect to my RTI application appeal. HEREBY , WE ARE  ONLY SEEKING ACCOUNTABILITY OF PUBLIC SERVANTS  IN PUBLIC INTEREST &  JUSTICE. Hereby ,  we request you to register this appeal as a PIL  petition & to ascertain the stand of apex court on various matters  raised in my RTI Application , in public interest & equitable justice.

We salute honest few in public service ,  Judiciary , police , parliament  & state  legislative assemblies. our whole hearted respects to them.  HEREBY , I DO HUMBLY REQUEST YOU TO GIVE ME WRITTEN STATEMENTS / ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS – WHICH IN ITSELF ( ie answers ) ARE THE INFORMATION SOUGHT BY ME. HERE WITH I AM SEEKING NOT THE OPINIONS ABOUT SOME HYPOTHETICAL ISSUES , BUT YOUR OFFICIAL STAND , LEGAL STAND ON ISSUES WHICH ARE OF FREQUENT OCCURRENCE WHICH ARE VIOLATING PEOPLE’S FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS. WE DO HAVE HIGHEST RESPECTS FOR JUDICIARY & ALL PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS , THIS IS AN APPEAL FOR TRUTH , INFORMATION SO THAT TO APPREHEND CORRUPT FEW IN PUBLIC SERVICE, WHO ARE AIDING & ABETTING TERRORISM , UNDERWORLD & CRIMINALS.  I  HAVE SHOWN IN DETAIL WITH LIVE , ACTUAL CASES , EXAMPLES , HOW INDIAN LEGAL SYSTEM IS MANIPULATED BY CRIMINALS  WITHIN JUDICIARY , POLICE , PROSECUTION , ETC.

2.      What action you have taken against judges involved in land scams , casewise ? if not , why ?

3.      I have shown with actual cases  how manipulation / fixing takes place , from  complaint filing to judicial pronouncement stage. Are the judges & police , above law ?

4.      I have numerous PILs , RTI appeals  before supreme court of india. But they were  not registered , not honoured , why ?

5.      To my  legal notice / show cause notice / damage payment notice to supreme court of india & chief justice of india , till date I have not received the reply , why ?

7.      Is it not the failure of supreme court of india, when it failed to protect the life of  a complainant ?

8.      By negligence of their duties , are not supreme court judges  aiding & abetting  criminals , anti nationals & terrorists ?

9.      While crores of Indians are barely surviving  on a single piece meal a day , people dying due to starvation , supreme  court judges are getting salary & perks amounting to lakhs of rupees  from the same suffering public / public exchequer. Are not those  duty shirking judges  ashamed ?

13.  When  even cable TV  journalists , web journalists are getting PRESS / MEDIA accreditation , my web news papers , myself are not getting  PRESS accreditation since 9 years , why ?

14.  Are the supreme court  judges  hand in gloves with the criminal nexus ?

Main  B :

You have not taken appropriate action to my previous RTI requests , Numerous appeals for justice & police complaints. You have not replied to show-cause notice also. Your inaction has helped the criminals in manipulating & destroying evidences.

Your inaction / delay in performing your duties not only amounts to denial of information , but  amounts to violation of our fundamental & human rights , cover-up of crimes , aiding & abetting criminals . The criminal nexus tried to silence me in many ways. Is not these acts of your’s  a crime in itself ?

If your acts of crime cover-ups  , information / evidence cover-ups , aiding & abetting criminals , silencing a crusader  is just & legal. The same type of acts of crimes  performed by other citizens will also be legal ?

Main  C :

At the outset , we express our whole hearted respects to all constitutional institutions &  to the honest few in public service. Contempt of constitutional institutions , citizens of India is being made by the corrupt persons in constitutional positions themselves. This is an appeal to the honest few in public service , constitutional positions , to bring their corrupt colleagues to book.

1.                  does the action of MPs , MLAs taking money / receiving favors from vested interests , to formulate policy decisions , to raise questions in parliament / legislative bodies or to abstain from voting  legal ?

2.                  why transparent , fair investigation is not done in such cases ?

3.                  just remember , the  vulgar acts of Mr.Bora Babu Singh in state legislature & how some  MLAs   vulgarly behaved with Ms.Jayalalita  in state legislature , years ago. Are these type of vulgar actions by MPs & MLAs  legal ? does not these constitute contempt of the house by MPs & MLAs themselves ?

4.                  all the people’s representatives from panchayath member to president of India must read ABCD  Of Democracy  provide along with.since independence of India till date , MPs & MLAs are forcing projects on people against the wishes of people , formulating policies against the wishes of people. Are not such projects , government policies & Laws , undemocratic & illegal ?

6.                  how many candidates have been caught so far for giving false affidavits ? are all the violators prosecuted?

Main  D :

1.                  we do once again offer  our conditional services to the government of india , all state governments & supreme court of india , in apprehending  tax evaders , land grabbers , corrupt police , corrupt judges , corrupt  public servants , labor law violators , etc. whom the the government officials , vigilance authorities have failed to apprehend. Why the authorities , courts , supreme court of India , are not ready  to utilize our service ? are they afraid of being caught ?

2.                  the public servants , courts theselves are delaying giving information / records to us in many cases. So in the issues / cases raised by us , the clause of time bar doe not apply. Are these delaying tactics of public servants , courts legal ?

3.                  why no proper , timely action was not taken based on numerous police complaints made by us ?

4.                  why DG & IGP , Government of Karnataka , has not made any efforts to seek legal sanction for prosecution of VVIPs ( mentioned in our complaint ) , from union & state home ministries ?

5.                  the criminal nexus is trying to silence me in many ways , but the supreme court of India & national human rights  commission  has failed to undo the injustices , why ? is it because it is not a high profile case  ? is it because it  is not hi-fi , does not get image ratings , TRPs ?

6.                  the public servants are aiding underworld , naxalites & terrorists , by their delaying tactics & denial of information , records. What action has been taken against such anti-national elements in public service ?

7.                  how many complaints are made by Nagaraj .M.R. , Human Rights Activist , Mysore (editor of SOS e-clarion of dalit & SOS e-voice for justice) to Karnataka police , to national human rights commission  to supreme court of India till date ? what action taken with respect to each complaint ?

But these hi-fi people are not charged with TADA / POTA ? why ?
Q22. Film actor sanjay dutt had contacts with underworld & fully knowing well the criminal objectives of criminals , hid the dangerous arms & ammunition in his home , which were intended for terrorizing public. However mr.dutt is not charged with TADA / POTA instead he is charged with illegal possession of arms act ( which is normally applied to farmers who use illegal home made guns to scare away animals , birds in their farms ).

Few Judges Deserve CONTEMPT

Filed under: dalit human rights — Nagaraja M R @ 7:18 am

S.O.S   e – Clarion  Of  Dalit  –  Weekly  Newspaper  On  Web 

Working  For  The  Rights  &  Survival  Of  The Oppressed

Editor: NAGARAJA.M.R… VOL.11 issue.20… . 24  / 05 / 2017

 

Editorial :  Few  Judges  deserve  Contempt   NOT  Respect

Justice  Karnan was  convicted for “Contempt of Court” , in a super fast manner. Why NOT   Supreme Court Judges  who have committed anti national crimes , sex crimes , etc are not  punished in such a  super fast manner  since years ?  Why Supreme Court Judges are NOT punished for “Contempt of Court  , contempt of constitution of India ,  Contempt of  Citizens “  since years ? Are these people Judges or Dictators ?

CJI  Khehar Murders Justice & Truth

https://sites.google.com/site/sosevoiceforjustice/cji-khehar-murders-justice-truth

Few  judges  even after committing crimes are escaping from legal prosecution. They are not allowing  RTI replies , enquiry , investigation  into their crimes , illegal actions. Therefore they cann’t be legally prosecuted and convicted in a court of law. As a result by farce  they are innocent ,  technically innocent till proven guilty.

We have highest respect for all constitutional offices including courts of law , office of judge. However  we  have  utter CONTEMPT towards  few corrupt individuals occupying those honourable offices.  Respect towards a Judge   comes involuntarily  in a citizen , when he sees that judge performing his constitutional duties honestly , bringing glory to the office. A corrupt  judge  himself is the first contemnor of his own  office  , who shows disrespect to his office by working against law. By fear of contempt law , fear of imprisonment   a  corrupt judge will not get respect , he will get a mechanical salutation from citizens  but inside citizen’s  heart there will be utter contempt towards the corrupt judge.

Judges don’t behave like dictators , you are accountable to people as you are surviving on people’s money.  Remember  You are inferior to our motherland india and our constitution.

 

Full text of Justice Karnan’s letter to President, PM Modi seeking pardon

 

Embattled Calcutta High Court judge Justice C S Karnan has petitioned President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking pardon from the six-month sentence pronounced upon him by the Supreme Court for contempt of court.

In a letter written to the President, the PM and other functionaries of the republic, the judge challenged the Supreme Court’s sentence and claimed to have been singled out for punishment because he raised “the little voice from within against corruption in the higher judiciary.”

Further, he added, “The President of India appointed me as a judge and the President alone could have removed me and that too upon an impeachment motion which has received the 2/3rd majority of the members of Parliament. ”

Here is the full text of the letter written by Justice C S Karnan of the Calcutta High Court to the President, Prime Minister and others.

Justice C S Karnan

Judge, High Court of Judicature at Calcutta

To

  1. His Excellency Shri Pranab Kumar Mukherjee, President of India, New Delhi 110 004
  2. His Excellency Shri H M Ansari, Vice-President of India, New Delhi 110 011
  3. Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, New Delhi 110 011
  4. Hon’ble Mrs Sumitra Mahajan, Speaker of Lok Sabha, New Delhi 110 001
  5. All the Hon’ble Members of Parliament
  6. Leaders of all political parties

May it please your excellencies

Sub: My Impeachment and imprisonment without authority of law and allegations of corruption against incumbent Hon’ble Chief Justice of India – Urgent intervention of the president/Members of Parliament — plea for pardon/plea for remission or pardon of punishment and/or suspension or stay of sentence.

  1. I address this letter with a heavy heart, with unbearable pain of suffering and injustice meted out to me by none other than a bench headed by the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India, the judiciary itself to which I belong.
  2. I am convicted for contempt of court by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India for no offence committed by me. I am convicted and sentenced for 6 months for commission of an offence of Contempt of Court, that too by usurping the jurisdiction invested in the parliament, so too in a trial even without a charge sheet being framed while I did not commit any contempt of court at all. What is the offence? Did I commit a contempt of Court? In all humility I beg to submit, I did not. All that I did was to raise the ‘little voice from within’, against corruption in the higher judiciary, so too many a malpractices, I am afraid to say, even tyranny. My accusation is against individual judges, my brothers, who abused their office and indulged in corruption. Today if a judge is willing to pledge his conscience and sell justice, he is free to do it. He could do so fearlessly. The whistleblower, the one who acts upon the ‘still voicefrom within’ will be sent to jail for contempt of court. The President of India appointed me as a judge and the President alone could have removed me and that too upon an impeachment motion which has received the 2/3rd majority of the members of Parliament. But I am not only impeached, but even being sent to the jail without any such impeachment motion against me, by a mere judicial order of a 7 judges bench!!! The judgment against me is not mere abuse of the contempt of court law, but violation of the constitution and the usurpation of the jurisdiction of parliament.

 

 

Who is in contempt of justice, Karnan or the court?

by Manasa Venkataraman

Justice C.S. Karnan’s conduct has certainly been indecorous and worthy of attracting the charge of contempt. On the other hand, if the Supreme Court order amounts to removing him as a judge, it is a violation of the Constitution.

 

The Supreme Court (SC) found Justice Karnan guilty of contempt of court on May 9, 2017, and sentenced him to the highest punishment for contempt under the law — 6-months imprisonment effective immediately. He was also stripped of his judicial duties with a finality — he had already been divested of his judicial and administrative duties in February this year till the contempt charges against him were heard.

There is no denying that Justice Karnan’s conduct has been unbecoming of a judge. The statements made by him, even the “order” passed by him against his seniors in the system, are anything but lawful. His conduct has certainly been deplorable — especially considering that as a High Court (HC) judge, Justice Karnan was expected to exercise immense wisdom, if not the law.

While the Court was right in holding that Karnan was guilty of contempt, its order does not reflect the clarity and consistency expected out of the highest court in the land.

How the order is inconsistent with the Constitution

The Supreme Court’s order is unclear and not truly consistent with the Constitution. A judge of the HC or the SC can only be removed by a majority vote in the Parliament, as per Article 124(4). This is where the May 9 order becomes slightly tricky — while it orders that Karnan be removed from all his judicial duties, it does not clarify whether he is removed as a judge. Surely, taking away Karnan’s powers and functions and admonishing him to prison amounts to removing him as judge for all practical purposes — which is a decision the Parliament, and not the judiciary, must take.

This is important because not only is the order now constitutionally ambiguous and confusing, but it is dangerous that the highest court in the land forewent the factoring-in of constitutional law into its decision. What the Supreme Court says has binding legal value for posterity. By hurriedly sentencing Karnan to imprisonment, the Court may have effectively removed him as judge, a power it does not have under the law.

What could the court have done differently? Could it have employed in-house correction mechanisms until Karnan retires next month, and ordered that his imprisonment begin after retirement? Could it have directed the judicial administration to refer the matter to the legislature? Could it have pre-empted the whole debacle by having taken cognisance of Karnan’s conduct much before it escalated to these heights?

Maybe.

Indiscriminate exercise of suo motu power

Under the Constitution, the SC and the HCs are given the power to take cognisance of matters even if a case of dispute is not filed before them (i.e., “suo motu powers”). This power is granted on the trust that it will be used reasonably, sparingly and with discretion. The suo motu power does not, of course, allow the courts to surpass the rule of law (for instance, a court cannot pass an order without giving the accused a chance to defend herself merely because it exercises suo motu power).

 

Sliced any way, the fact of the matter is that the judiciary has its institutional failings — the Karnan saga may just be a textbook case in showing us how gaping these flaws are

Equally, the suo motu power cannot be inconsistent with constitutional law.

So, it is disconcerting to note in this case that the SC overstepped its suo motu power in ordering that Justice Karnan be imprisoned while his term as a sitting judge of the Calcutta High Court still continues. To be precise, the SC removed him from performing any judicial duties back in February 2017, much before he was even found guilty of contempt. No reasoning for stripping Karnan of his duties is provided in these orders. It is unclear under which legal authority the court decided to divest an HC judge of his functions, especially considering that the Constitution, the foremost law governing these functions, was not referred to even once.

Separately, considering that Justice Karnan was a part of the higher judiciary, and given the fact that a saga of this kind is unprecedented, the SC should in fact have consciously set a cautious precedent — it could have recommended that in-house correction mechanisms be initiated, or that Karnan be asked to retire/resign with dignity. While Justice Karnan may have been errant in his conduct, the SC’s treatment of the matter is equally grave, as it may set a dangerous precedent.

Contempt > Constitution?

Perhaps the core legal question in the Karnan saga is: which law must be given precedence when there is a discrepancy between the Constitution and the Contempt of Courts Act? Although the answer should have been the Constitution, the Contempt of Courts Act seems to have won in this case.

 

An order that is made without taking into consideration constitutional provisions, which is the chief law in matters of the SC and HCs, is incomplete. That the “supremacy of the Constitution” is a facet of our basic structure is incontestable. However, in this case, the Contempt of Courts Act was given precedence without acknowledging that the order clashing with the Constitution may cause confusion.

At any point over the course of the last few years, the judicial administration could have intervened in the matter and mitigated the damage, or used in-house correction mechanisms. Inquiry could even have begun under the Judges (Inquiry) Act to remove Justice Karnan — if no other measures proved effective. Instead, what we have before us is a confusing order that does not clarify whether removing Karnan from his judicial duties amounts to a judicially-ordered “impeachment” or not.

Unwarranted Media Gag

The last paragraph in the SC order is perhaps most telling. It says “…Since the incident of contempt includes public statements and publication of orders made by the contemnor, which were highlighted by the electronic and print media, we are of the view, that no further statements made by him should be published hereafter. Ordered accordingly…”

The SC cannot impede the media from publishing such statements because the media was not the one on trial for contempt of court. Under the Constitution, the freedom of speech and expression can be curtailed only on reasonable grounds. The rationale given by the court was on anything but. Gagging the media, which was not on trial in the first place, is like shooting the messenger.

The lapse of judgment by the, well, judiciary is upsetting. Sliced any way, the fact of the matter is that the judiciary has its institutional failings — the Karnan saga may just be a textbook case in showing us how gaping these flaws are. While the anxious question on everyone’s lips is how many other Karnans have slipped through the cracks, the hope is always that the judiciary understand the great responsibility it has in setting healthy examples, and healthier functioning mechanisms.

 

SC  Wrong in sending  Justice Karnan to Jail & Gagging Media

By Rajeev  Dhavan

Earlier, I thought that the Supreme Court exceeded its jurisdiction in its dealing with Justice Karnan. Now, I argue that Karnan should not be sent to jail for six months and the SC should not have gagged the press from reporting anything Karnan said.

Karnan, a Dalit judge, was duly appointed a judge of the Madras High Court on March 31, 2009. He was the senior most of 13 judges appointed on that date. He came from the Bar and performed before the recommending judges. His appointment raised no eyebrows. The then Chief Justice, KG Balakrishnan, has declared amnesia over the appointment.

Test of sanity

In recent years, Karnan indulged in “conduct unbecoming”, was transferred to the Calcutta High Court in 2016 where his odd behaviour continued. No one thought of impeachment proceedings, which is only the prescribed way to remove HC and SC judges. Instead, seven senior judges of the SC decided stripped him of all work, summoned him and then punished him. What an embarrassment! What an expensive farce!

The SC thought he was insane and ordered him to be medically examined. Which self-consciously “sane” person would admit to such a procedure? Karnan refused. Karnan had not pleaded insanity. The SC in fact pleaded insanity on his behalf. Had the SC already come to the conclusion that Karnan was insane?

The Court should have declared him mentally unstable to do work and reaffirmed its earlier order depriving him of work. Of course, this is assuming the Supreme Court had the power to virtually “remove” him from office which it didn’t) or punish him (which also in my view it didn’t).

Photo: Indiatoday.in

The drama was too intense for the SC. Karnan had to be made an example of.  Now all HC or retired SC judges remain in fear lest a Chief Justice and senior colleagues of the Supreme Court found their conduct reprehensible. Though Karnan had behaved abominably, the SC violated many procedures to make an example of him.

What does this do for the independence of high court judges? Or for judicial federalism? District judges are better treated. Karnan will retire from the judiciary from June 12 and be incarcerated till November 12. Karnan has disappeared pleading for lesser punishment.

The SC added: “Since the incident of contempt includes public statements and publication of orders made by the contemnor, which were highlighted by the electronic and print media, we are of the view, that no further statements made by him should be published hereafter. Ordered accordingly.” This is against the SC’s own law.

Dangerous precedent

The Supreme Court faced a great dilemma in Gopalan’s case (1950) whether a person deprived of life and liberty by law under Article 21 conceivably forfeited his right to movement, free speech, property, right to business. The answer was convenient but not fulfiling. In the Prabhakar case (1965), Subba Rao J for five judges refused to accept a detainee lost his right to send a manuscript of his book “Anucha Antargat” (Inside the Atom) to a publisher.

In Prabha Dutt (1982) the Court ruled that a journalist had a controlled right to interview a convicted prisoner in jail. This was affirmed in the Sheela Barse (1987) and Charulata Joshi (1999) cases. In the famed Auto Shankar case (1994), Justice Jeevan Reddy made it clear that Auto Shankar convicted of six murders and on death row had every right to send his memoirs to a printer without fear of civil defamation from the police officers he criticised.

The decisions are clear: journalists can, within limits, interview pre-trial prisoners, detainees and convicts. Prisoners in jail could write works and have every right to publish them even if about their incarceration. Did not Nehru write his Glimpses of World History for Indira in prison? Recently on May 12, 2017, it was reported that Abdul Wahid Shaikh, later acquitted of the Bombay Blasts, has written of his prison experience.

Gag order

There is another aspect to this. There used to be an American doctrine based on an 1879 case that a criminal “not only forfeited his liberty but all his personal rights except those which the law in its humanity accords to him. He is for the time being a slave of the state.” In Sunil Batra’s case (1978) Krishna Iyer blasted this doctrine to smithereens to prevent a death penalty prisoner being kept solitary confinement.

He went further to say humanity demanded that a “convict was a guest in custody… until the terrestrial farewell whisks him away”. In legal terms, prison may deprive a person of movement, but not his humanity or personal rights including free speech.

Apply this to Karnan’s case. Can he write his memoirs and send them to a publisher? Can he communicate with his family and ask them to inform the press of his terrible incarceration? Can a blanket order prevent the press from seeing him in jail? The Karnan order defies everything the Supreme Court has stood for in its prison and free speech jurisprudence. Was it protecting itself from Karnan’s future, even if sober or even repentant, comments?

Explanatory reasons are to follow. The punishment is too harsh. The censorship of the press unprecedented.

 

Judges  Smother  Truth   about ex Arunachal CM’s Suicide : Justice Karnan to President

 

The Supreme Court of India refused to recall the arrest order against sitting Calcutta High Court Judge Justice Karnan, who has been found guilty of contempt of court by a seven-judge bench headed by the Chief Justice of India.

Justice Karnan, on May 12, had sought a review of his conviction and six-month jail sentence.

“We won’t allow you to stop court proceedings like this, you have been doing it repeatedly,” CJI JS Khehar told Justice Karnan’s legal aide Mathews Nedumpara on Monday.

Justice Karnan became the first Indian judge to be convicted, after incidentally also being the first judge to be summoned by a court. On May 9, Justice Karnan was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment after he failed to appear before court in a contempt case against him.

“We are punishing him for contempt of Indian judiciary as well as judicial process and his act was of greatest nature of contempt,” the seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar had said.

SC gives 6 month jail term to Justice Karnan for contempt, orders media gag on his statements

The West Bengal DGP was tasked with carrying out the arrest of Justice Karnan “immediately” but Justice Karnan had evaded arrest until Monday morning and has remained at large. Searches were carried out at his Kolkata residence and in parts of Chennai and Tamil Nadu-Andhra border by several senior police officials from different states. There were rumours doing the rounds that he had left the country or he would appear before the SC himself.

Meanwhile, Justice Karnan on Monday wrote a letter addressed to President Pranab Mukherjee, that was also addressed to Vice President Hamid Ansari, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, MPs and to leader of all political parties.

‘Committed no offence’

In his three-point letter, Justice Karnan alleges that his impeachment and imprisonment is “without authority of law” and goes on to level allegations of corruption against the Chief Justice of India JS Khehar. While arguing that he committed no offence, the HC judge goes on to observe that the Supreme Court ‘usurped’ the jurisdiction invested in the parliament” and his trial was held without charges being framed.

Justice Karnan alleges that the order by the seven-judge bench of the apex court was a “violation of the Constitution” in addition to “the usurpation of the jurisdiction of parliament”.

As per Article 217 of the Indian Constitution, a judge can be removed by an order of the President passed after both Houses of Parliament vote for their removal on grounds of proven “misbehaviour” and “incapacity”. And this vote must be by a two-thirds majority, where at least 66% of the member who are present and voting must vote for their removal.

“The President of India appointed me as a judge and the President alone could have removed me and that too upon an impeachment motion which has received the ⅔rd majority of the members of Parliament. But I am not only impeached, but even being sent to the jail without any such impeachment motion against me, by a mere judicial order of a 7 judges bench,” he writes.

Reiterating that he committed no offence, Justice Karnan says that all he did was to raise the “little voice from within” against corruption in the higher judiciary. In January, he had written a letter to PM Modi accused various judges and officers of the Madras High Court of corruption in. He also added that if central agencies probe the matter, his charges could be proved too..

Justice Karnan goes on to level more charges, alleging that in the suicide note left behind by former Arunachal Pradesh CM Kalikho Pul, he accused CJI Khehar and SC judge Justice Dipak Misra of “venturing to sell justice for a huge sum running into crores” through their relatives.  However, he claimed that no FIR has been registered and despite efforts to file a writ petition in the Delhi High Court, no case has been listed.

He concludes his letter writing, “I part with the unstinted faith that the two issues…my impeachment and imprisonment without authority of law and allegations of corruption against incumbent Hon’ble Chief Justice of India will be looked into, which I believe is the solemn duty of your excellencies.”

CJI Khehar Murders Justice Truth

Filed under: dalit human rights — Nagaraja M R @ 7:53 pm

Editorial : CJI  Khehar  Murders  Justice  Truth

 

Judicial Mafia scored a point in the power game , by silencing one more voice seeking justice. Corrupt judges protected from law shamelessly.

Today  Supreme Court bench headed by chief justice of india Justice Khehar has  passed final verdict in contempt case against  high court judge Justice Karnan and sentenced Justice Karnan  to 6 months imprisonment.

In it’s order it has stated “Justice Karnan is a Citizen first and  Judge afterwards , law is equal and same for all”. CJI  teaching , lecturing is good. However does not this lesson apply  to the lecturer himself – CJI Khehar , his  fellow judges. They are behaving since years  as though they are above law  in an arrogant manner.

What is the crime of Justice Karnan ? Whistle blowing  on corruption in judiciary ? This  issue would not have prolonged this far , has the CJI ordered for an impartial enquiry based  on the application sent by Justice Karnan sent to CJI detailing  corrupt judges. CJI didn’t act , didn’t do his constitutional duty. Then Justice Karnan appealed  to prime minister of India and President of india. Enraged by this , CJI  transferred Justice Karnan to another state high court , stripped him of his powers.

A  person committing an illegal act is a CRIMINAL , in the same way  a person who aids a criminal in hiding his crime , manipulating evidences , shielding criminal from law is also  a CRIMINAL. In the instant case  CJI is shielding corrupt judges  while  Justice karnan is whistle blowing , trying hard to throw light on corrupt judges , logically decide who is a criminal.

As the act of CJI’s   intentional negligence to act upon Justice Karnan’s application  detailing corrupt judges in not right , CJI  publicly  doubting  a sitting judge’s  mental health is not right , CJI  transferring & stripping  all powers from Justice Karnan is not right   in the same way a frustrated crusader Justice Karnan’s way of expressing  his  anguish against  corruption supporting judges is also not right. He could have choosen more  balanced approach.

CJI and  supreme court of india  legally doesn’t  have power to  convict  Justice Karnan , maximum they can refer it to Indian Parliament for appropriate action.

There are other cases where in judges have committed gravest crimes , SEX Crimes against women judges , usurped illegal lands , etc , all their cases are white washed. Some of those judges even got promotions , because they were from forward castes and had powerful backing.

CJI  Justice Khehar  and President of India Pranab Mukherjee themselves face  Corruption allegations by  late Arunachal Chief Minister Mr. Kalikho Pul. NO ACTION , Why ?  Because they  are from forward caste and has powerful backing.

Justice Karnan , Justice Gawl & Justice Ramakrishna  are from oppressed  DALIT community  , no backing. Therefore they were further oppressed not for doing any crimes  but for upholding law.  This is true india , even after  69 years of independence  DALIT ATROCITY continues , but CJI & bench colleagues are not  bound by SC & ST Atrocity prevention act !!!!!

SHAME   to  Judicial Mafia.

SC Order On Justice Karnan A Dangerous Precedent

By Indira Jaising

 

Can contempt powers be used to circumvent the provisions of Article 124 read with Article 217 of the Constitution? Does the removal of judicial functions of a judge not amount to removal of a judge? Does sending a judge to prison not amount to removing him from performance of his duties of office?

The order in contempt sets a dangerous precedent where the Supreme Court can remove any judge of a high court or indeed of the Supreme Court in contempt powers and do indirectly what they cannot do directly.

Once the power is asserted, it can be exercised for any reason whatsoever. The Supreme Court has no discipline jurisdiction over the high courts and their judges, as they are not subordinate to the Supreme Court in such matters.

The Parliament alone has the power to remove a judge. Nor can the conduct of a judge be discussed, except on a removal motion. This is non-negotiable.

This is what mantains the independence of the judiciary. Surely the Court could have sent a report to Parliament requesting a motion to be moved.

After all, the Attorney General with great conviction agreed that Justice Karman had committed misconduct, so what was the hurdle? Such a course was adopted before by Justice Balakrishnan in the case of Justice Sen of Calcutta.

True, Justice Karnan was due to retire in June. For that, Mr. K.K.Venugopal had the perfect solution: leave him alone, till then justice would be served. And as for the order to examine him for mental illness, its legality leaves much to be desired as no person can be medically examined without an informed consent. Moreover, mental illness unfortunately carries still a stigma.

I do not support or approve of his conduct and behaviour, but may I ask why was he appointed in the first place? Who will take responsibility for that? Only questions, no answers.

Indira Jaising

CJI  Khehar Confessed  criminal

 

CJI & his coterie  of  criminal judges  confessed to crimes , by not replying to show cause  notice issued to them. Thereby , CJI & corrupt colleagues  showed contempt to constitution of india , citizens of india and  to the  very offices these judges  occupy. Thereby , CJI &  coterie are showing  total disregard to national security , safety of citizens  , etc while shamelessly  taking pay hikes , 5 star pay , perks from public exchequer.

 

Now  consider the case of  Justice Karnan. First  he raised the issue of corruption by tamilnadu high court judges . He sent his  representation  to CJI  as per official procedure , instead of enquiring the case CJI sat over the file to protect corrupt judges. When  Justice Karnan  repeatedly raised this issue with other constitutional authorities , his judicial powers were withdrawn & transferred to silence him.

 

Is  raising voice against corruption a crime , madness , mental imbalance ?  So , if one doesn’t raise his voice against  crimes  and becomes a part of criminal mafia in their  scheme of things , it is acceptable , their mental health good ?

 

These criminal judges and other learned advocates   who are questioning the  mental health of justice karnan in public , are defaming him. Of course  Justice Karnan is not like these learned CJI , his coterie of judges  ,  few advocates , other  accusers of karnan who are  illegally benefitting , running this legal mafia of  corruption , judgement fixing. Justice Karnan being honest , a whistle blower is a misfit among this legal mafia. He is not scheming , cunning as these legal mafia dons.  These legal mafia dons  are  torturing this  dalit judge  , as he doesn’t belong to powerful caste & doesn’t have political patronage.  These  acts  of  CJI , other  Judges ,  attorney general  , Ram Jethmalani  and others  are  clear case  of  DALIT  ATROCITY  against Justice  Karnan.  When  a  guard   himself  steals , where is justice ?

 

Supreme court Judges , police  warrant  others , public to  obey it’s orders and to  reply to their questions , notices. In the same way why Supreme court Judges , CJI , Police are not  obeying the orders , notices  of  Justice Karnan ?

 

Judges , police  warrant  others , public to  obey it’s orders and to  reply to their questions , notices. Police  even illegally apply 3rd degree torture methods to get  answers they want.  In the same way why Supreme court Judges , CJI , Police are not  answering the  notices , questions raised by our publication ?

 

Judges & Police are not above citizens  of india. All are equal.

 

A crime may happen without the notice of police , a crime cann’t continue  for long without the notice , connivance of police. A crime brought to the notice of  judge cann’t continue without the connivance of judge.

 

Our whole hearted respects to honest few in judiciary , police & public service who are an exception.

 

The public servants & the government must be role models in law abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-free under his patronage.  even if a police , public servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the aggrieved.  just think , if a judge himself that too  of apex court of the land  himself  commits crime – violations of RTI Act , constitutional rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the public from performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ?         

 

Judges & Police themselves must first learn to respect  human beings  as human beings. When you treat them like animals  they will also reciprocate do remember.  Or else  the almighty will ensure DOG’S DEATH to corrupt judges & police. On the D Day in the Almighty’s court  corrupt judges & police will face  ultimate punishment , no match fixing possible.

Hon’ble  CJI    by sending hundreds of policemen to   serve arrest warrant to Justice Karnan  as if to arrest a dreaded  criminal  and by calling a judge as lunatic and  asking  police force to produce  him for medical examination  with  force  , you are  stooping to a low level .  You  and incumbent   president of india are also accused of corruption by  former Arunachal Pradesh chief minister  late Kalhikho pul. You are  intentionally deviating from core issue of corruption by high court , supreme court judges and president of india.  You are accused of crime  and you are trying all out  to hide those crimes , corruption issues and to protect your corrupt colleagues.  CORRUPTION   IS  A PUNISHABLE  OFFENSE  and  hiding , covering up crimes , criminals  is also one more offense. When you are the accused , how can you judge your own case.  Before going further  on contempt charges against karnan  , supreme court must  immediately  take up corruption charges against incumbent president of india , chief justice of india and  corrupt judges accused by Justice karnan.

 

The  mafia  of corrupt  has never allowed for transparent , impartial   investigation into criminal cases  involving higher judges & public servants. Justice Karnan  is in  the position of  high court judge due to his merit , talent , education  not  on the basis of reservation or anybody’s mercy. Justice Karnan is a whistle blower , he has exposed corruption in the higher judiciary , he has not done any crimes. Now , powers that be instead of ordering for a fair investigation into   his charges,  is trying  all out to silence him. Some  people  are  even making personal  attacks , by calling him lunatic. Those persons may be beneficiaries   of the existing corrupt judicial system and they  want to continue  with this present  corrupt system.

In a Mental Hospital ward , say there  are number of  mentally challenged patients  playing inside the ward. A doctor & his assistant enters  the ward to  check , give  routine medicines , injections to patients and then all those  patients call  the  doctor himself as  mad. It is the same situation now.

Are  not  the so called learned , aged advocate ( @ god’s airport )  and  learned   judges   see the  crimes by judges in the past. See  sample cases mentioned above & below.  What  action taken by those  learned judges &   learned advocate , to safe guard law  in the above / below  mentioned cases? Our  judicial  system is  being  weakened  by  corrupt  judges &  few  , greedy   advocates  ( learned  ? ) , NOT by  whistle blowers  who  have sacrificed  to protect the  nation from corrupt people.

In the past  few judges  belonging to powerful castes  facing  charges of  gravest crimes , got a smooth sailing , their  cases white washed. But Justice  Karnan  belonging to oppressed  Dalit  class  is being  tortured  for standing up against corruption. He has done no crimes. This is the very reason few honest judges  & honest  advocates  keep  silent  fearing  victimization.

Hereby , we  demand Honourable Supreme Court of India :

1.       To  order  transparent , impartial   investigation into all the above mentioned corruption cases involving high ranking judges and president of india.

2.       To  order for filing  charges  under SC / ST Atrocities Prevention Act  against  high ranking judges  who  tortured  Dalit Judges – Justice Karnan , Justice Gawl & Justice Ramakrishna.

3.       To  order for filing  charges  under SC / ST Atrocities Prevention Act  against  learned advocate & others  who made personal attacks on Justice Karnan  by calling him as lunatic and  for  obstructing legal prosecution of the corrupt judges.

4.       To immediately stay all contempt proceedings against Justice Karnan  till the corruption charges leveled by him  against  high ranking judges are enquired into.

5.       To immediately   post all the cases  concerning  Justice Karnan  , to a neutral bench  to conduct trial in a transparent manner as the  accused  are  incumbent chief justice of india  and  a supreme court judge. An accused cann’t be a judge in his own case.

6.       Even though  Justice  Karnan is in good health as  stated by him and his family , CJI is hell bent to subject him to forcible medical examination.  It is gross violation of Karnan’s human rights. If at all CJI wants to go ahead , on an equal footing  CJI , his bench colleagues ,  Advocate General Mukul Rohtagi , learned ( ?) advocate Ram Jethmalani must  also be subjected to  medical tests , psychiatric tests , polygraph , lie detector tests  by a neutral agency in a transparent manner.

7.         The outrageous acts , orders of supreme court  judges  repeatedly ,  itself proves that indeed they are involved in the crimes of corruption  or  it’s cover up  or  both. Which is beyond doubt.

 

Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

Stop targeting whistleblower Justice Karnan. Clean up the judicial system

 By  Mathews J Nedumpara 

 

Senior advocate Ram Jethmalani recently wrote a scathing letter to the Calcutta High Court’s Justice CS Karnan, advising him to take back every word he has said about two Madras High Court judges and pray for pardon. Jethmalani has termed Justice Karnan’s actions as lunatic. Neither me nor the National Lawyers Campaign for Judicial Transparency and Reforms (NLC), of which I am the president, supports Justice Karnan nor justifies his “tantrums”. However, the NLC supports Justice Karnan because corruption has spread its tentacles in the justice delivery system.

Justice Karnan’s anger might be out of feelings of discrimination, isolation and, or, humiliation. His attack on his brother Judges of the Madras HC, sitting and retired, is perhaps vindictive. He accuses them of having indulged in corruption, nepotism and malpractice. Though many accused of corruption and malpractices by him could be innocent or could have indulged in venial and not venal act of corruption or malpractice, the allegation against at least a few of them may not be unfounded.

But the question to be answered is whether alleging corruption against sitting or retired Judges of the high court or the Supreme Court amounts to contempt of court as defined in Section 2(1)(c) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 or will it attract the inherent jurisdiction of the Supreme Court under Art.138, r/w. Arts. 140 and 142 of the Constitution to punish a person for contempt of court.

 

The concept of contempt of court is a cathartic jurisprudence, which has its origin in the Canon Law and, in particular, the Canon Law of the Dark Ages, a jurisprudence of a time when the offence of heresy, nay, contempt of the Church, where the contemnor is burnt alive at a stake.

The in terrorem (a legal threat, usually one given in hope of compelling someone to act without resorting to a lawsuit or criminal prosecution) jurisprudence of contempt of Court militates against all canons of justice and fair play; it flourished in the Middle Ages when Inquisition was the mode of justice administration, where contemnor was tortured to extract guilt. The foundation of The Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 on the jurisprudence of the Dark Ages is classically exemplified in Sub-Section (5) of Section 17 of the Act.

Our constitutional and criminal laws are founded on the principle that the guilt against a person accused of an offence ought not to be wrung out of him, but has to be proved against him by other men and means.

Sub-Section (5) of Section 17, supra, places the burden to prove his innocence upon the contemnor; it requires him to file an affidavit in support of his defence and empowers the Court to determine the matter on the affidavit of the contemnor. Section 17(5) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971, therefore, is in violation of Article 20(3) of the Constitution, which states that no person accused of any offence shall be compelled to be a witness against himself; so too Arts. 21, 14 and 19 thereof, which are required to be read together.

 

The power of contempt, as is presently exercised by the judges of the higher judiciary is, with much respect, more susceptible to be abused than used.

I have witnessed such misuse often against the voiceless, the outspoken and persons who are upright. The power of contempt has often been misused against the voices of truth, even though truth is an undeniable defence against contempt proceedings.

Resorting to the power of contempt without application of judicial mind has ramifications. It creates fear, a terror, and worst, hatred, in the minds of citizen. As pointed out, the fear has led to not venturing to write anything about the functioning of the judiciary, except eulogising and flattery.

Undoubtedly, in the suo motu contempt of court proceeding against Justice Karnan, the prosecutor and the judge, both at once, are the judges themselves. The contempt of court law is undemocratic and, assuming it to be otherwise, the question is, could any action lie against Justice Karnan?

It certainly will not, as:

Even assuming that Justice Karnan has made allegations of corruption and malpractices against his judges, he has not committed any contempt of court.

The concept of equality before law and equal protection of law is at the core of the Constitution.

For the judges against whom Justice CS Karnan has made the allegations of corruption, the law provides for remedy, both civil and criminal.

It is enough to refer to the suit filed by Justice PB Sawant, former judge of the Supreme Court, against Times Now claiming Rs 100 crore as damages to support my contention that law provides for adequate remedy if Justice Karnan has made false or scurrilous allegations against his brethren.

Is it then right for me to expect the vilified judges to institute civil and criminal cases like ordinary citizens? Yes, because in the eyes of the law, all are equal; the immunity which judges enjoy is for what they do from the seats of justice.

I am made to understand that some of the allegations made by Justice Karnan are against the chief justice of the Madras High Court on the administrative side about the construction of court complexes, appointment of judges. It must be said that a situation where judges are accused of corruption and they are forced to institute civil and criminal cases is against their prestige and honour and is no way an ideal situation.

Corruption is undoubtedly spreading its tentacles in the corpus of the justice delivery system, which does not merely mean judges alone.

There ought to be a remedy. The remedy is not in silencing the whisleblowers with the guillotine of contempt of court. There’s a need to bring into existence a credible mechanism by which allegations of corruption, nepotism and malpractices against judges are investigated and those who are guilty are brought to book without impinging their independence and the sanctity of the justice delivery system.

The judicial function has been considered to be sacrosanct; courts are temples of justice; its majesty and credibility and the confidence of the public has to be zealously guarded, but not by silencing whisleblowers and upright men and women who dare to point out instances of corruption, nepotism and malpractices, risking their professional prospects, nay, even their freedom and liberty.

 

Atrocities against Dalits by Judges

–          An Appeal to Honourable Supreme Court of India, National Human Rights Commission & National Commission  for  Scheduled  Castes  /  Scheduled  Tribes

The track record of apex court is not clean. There is secrecy involved in selection , promotion , transfer of judges to high court & supreme court. Supreme court judges take huge pay , perks from public exchequer ( now on the verge of getting triple fold increase in pay ) but are not accountable to public. They don’t give information to public , concerning judges and national security , public welfare.

Consider the case of Dalit judge of sukma , chattisgarh , he was removed for being honest , for upholding law ? Now, Justice Karnan a whistle blower is being victimized. Apex court is not looking seriously  at issues  raised by justice karnan but concentrating on silencing him.

When other high ranking judges  ( having  influence  & belonging to upper castes )  were accused of more grave crimes like  involvement  in sex racket , sex crimes against women , national security crimes  , etc , they were treated with kid gloves , cases hush hushed , white washed.  Inspite of  fervent  appeals  even  apex court didn’t bother to  conduct a public , transparent enquiry. Now apex court  has  initiated  suo motto  “contempt proceedings “ against  Justice Karnan as he  is a  DALIT  , without influence of powers that be.

So many dalits , weaker section people   were  cheated  of  their job oppurtunities in mysuru university , KSOU , Various Government  Medical  colleges , Government aided  ITIs , Polytechnics in Karnataka state  by scheming  upper caste officials.  Inspite of repeated appeals , why apex court has not taken legal prosecution to logical end and ensured justice to  aggrieved dalits ?  What action supreme court has taken against  KPSC , VYAPAM members who denied  job oppurtunities to merited candidates , dalit & weaker section candidates ?  ? let alone take  suo motto action . No action to logical end.  Day in day out  there are rampant atrocities against dalits , weaker sections of people. Supreme court judges are enjoying lakhs of rupees pay , perks , 5 star bungalows  , foreign trips , weeks long summer / winter  paid  vacations  , proposed triple  fold salary hike  all at tax payer’s expense.  These judges must be first booked for “Atrocities against Dalits , Weaker sections”  under SC / ST Atrocities Prevention Act.

If at all , Supreme Court of India is impartial , without bias , let it come out clean :

1.                   To immediately  stay contempt proceedings against Justice Karnan and Order impartial enquiry against  judges accused of corruption , impropriety by Justice Karnan and all other issues raised by him. Take the help of Justice Karnan in collecting evidences.

2.                   Order impartial enquiry against almost half of former chief justices of india accused of corruption by NGOs.

3.                   Immediately give justice to past Sukma Dalit Judge Mr. Gwal who was unjustly removed , to kadapa judge Mr Rama Krishna and to Justice Karnan.

4.                   Immediately  give truthful , full  information , answers  to RTI questions sent to Supreme Court of India by our publication years ago. Inspite of several appeals , majority of questions are unanswered & for few questions got ambiguous answers.

5.                   Immediately take action  to protect fundamental rights , human rights of whistle blowers , RTI Activists & Human Rights Activists.

6. Immediately  take action against  KPSC , VYAPAM   members responsible for illegal recruitments , cancel  all those illegal recruitments and   conduct recruitments afresh  with old candidates.

7.  Immediately  take action against  KSOU , Mysuru University , Government Medical Colleges , Government Aided Polytechnics , ITI officials  responsible for illegal recruitments , cancel  all those illegal recruitments and   conduct recruitments afresh  with old candidates.

8.    Immediately admit PILs  presented before supreme court of india by our publication .

“Contempt  Proceedings”  should not be used as a weapon to silence voices seeking  justice , accountability of judiciary. Respect of judiciary doesn’t come out of fear rather spontaneously it comes out of a person’s heart  when  he sees a honest judge doing his duties honestly.

Editorial :  UNFIT   people  selected as Judges , Police ,  Prosecutors

Our whole hearted respects to honest few in judiciary , bar , legal profession  , police & public service.  This article is only  directed towards few rogues in the legal profession , police , Read the following web pages  , it is only the tip of ice berg.  UNFIT  candidates  lacking merit , honesty , integrity  are being selected as judges , police , public prosecutors ,  taluk / district magistrates through illegal means.   On top of all , these  people  behave like rogues  on common people   while kowtowing  before rich  crooks.

Therefore , all the people arrested , charge sheeted  by police are NOT criminals , in the same way all people convicted by  judges are NOT criminals. As  there may be CRIMINALS  in Khaki , Judicial robe , lawyer’s gown itself.

During trial of a case , as  accused is subjected to   thorough background check  by prosecution , police & judges. In the same way people  , defendants  , parties in cases have a right to examine thoroughly  the  antecedents , back  grounds  of public prosecutors , lawyers , police , judges handling the case to ascertain  whether they are honest or  rogues.

Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

Legal  Notice  to  Honourable Chief Justice of India

 

To,

Honourable Chief Justice of India,

SUPREME COURT OF INDIA,

New Delhi.

 

Honourable Sir ,

Subject : Legal Notice to Chief Justice of India

Are  Judges , Police  PERFECT ? Satya Harishchandra ?

Hereby , I challenge Chief Justice of India  in the exercise of my FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES  as a citizen of india , that subject to conditions  I will  legally prove the crimes of  few  judges , police , public servants within  the government service and other  criminals.  Is the CJI ready  to book those criminals , traitors , anti nationals ?

Since 25 years I am appealing to apex court for justice concerning various public issues , no justice in sight but injustices meted out  one after another. But the same  judges are  SHAMELESSLY  taking huge pay perks for years  now are also  poised to  get  almost  triple fold  salary increase.  Parasites  feeding  on  Indian  Public. Whenever questions of accountability are asked  judges level contempt charges  against  the  questioner  or police  fix  him in  fake cases or he is silenced by threats , murders , denial of jobs , etc.  Since 25 years  in many  ways they  are trying to silence me. Just take the recent example of Justice Karnan  who leveled corruption  charges  against specific judges  with CJI. Instead of  conducting a fair investigation into the matter , CJI  tried to silence him by  serving  him contempt notice.

Our Judges , Police are  NOT  Perfect  Not Satya Harischandras . There are  criminals  as well as honest people  side by side  in  judiciary & police.  We  whole heartedly respect honest few in judiciary , police & public service. But  we  detest  corrupt  judges , corrupt police. Honest  Judges & Police are not coming into open to  prosecute their corrupt colleagues,  why ? silenced ?

Criminalization of  all wings of government has taken place , unfit people  are in the positions of power. Corruption in judiciary , police , CBI , CVC , Public service is rampant. Now MAFIA is at work.  Only few scandals , scams become public , many  are buried. If one criminal public servant is caught  other public servant who is also a criminal conducts name sake investigation , gives  report , clean chit. Law courts rely on the government reports as evidences , courts are not bothered about credibility of reports or investigations. It is quid pro quo. Therefore technically criminal public servants are never proved for their crimes & convicted , as investigation itself is not fair.

A Crime may happen without the knowledge of police  but  cann’t  continue for years without the connivance of police.  A  Crime reported to court  cann’t  continue  for years without  connivance of judges.

At the bottom  of  the paper , I have given web sites about  few  ACB raids on government officials  and unearthing of crores worth property.  How they have earned it , by misusing their official positions. Therefore  government reports , records  prepared by these officials , investigations conducted by  corrupt police  are suspect.  But  Law courts in various cases , considers government reports , records  , statements of government officials as sacrosanct . Therefore  in many cases  injustice is meted out by court  , as they depend on  reports of corrupt government officials , corrupt police.

The public servants & the government must be role models in law abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-free under his patronage.  even if a police , public servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the aggrieved.  just think , if a judge himself that too  of apex court of the land  himself  commits crime – violations of RTI Act , constitutional rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the public from performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ?       

“Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts.  They will fight among themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the  forewarning of  Late Winston Churchill  has been proved right by  some of our  criminal , corrupt people’s representatives , police , public servants &  Judges. 

I don’t know whether secretariat staff of CJI office & DARPG / DPG officials are forwarding my appeals for justice , e-mails to you or not. They will be held accountable for their lapses if any. This notice is against the repeated failure of constitutional duties & indirect collusion with criminals by previous CHIEF JUSTICEs OF INDIA. Notice is served against them , to the office of CJI , NOT personally against you.

Please refer my appeal for justice through DARPG ;

DLGLA/E/2013/00292

DEPOJ/E/2013/00679

In india democracy is a farce , freedom a mirage. the most basic freedom RIGHT TO INFORMATION & EXPRESSION , is not honoured by the government,as the information opens up the crimes of V.V.I.Ps & leads to their ill-gotten wealth. The public servants are least bothered about the lives of people or justice to them. these type of fat cats , parasites are a drain on the public exchequer . these people want ,wish me to see dead , wish to see HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH closed . so that, a voice against injustices is silenced forever , the crimes of V.V.I.Ps closed , buried forever.

To my numerous appeals , HRW’s appeals to you ,you have not yet replied. It clearly shows that you are least bothered about the lives of people or justice to them .it proves that you are hell bent to protect the criminals at any cost. you are just pressurising the police to enquire me ,to take my statement, to repeatedly call me to police station all with a view to silence me.all of you enjoy “legal immunity privileges” ,why don’t you have given powers to the police / investigating officer to summon all of you for enquiry ?or else why don’t all of you are not appearing before the police voluntarily for enquiry ?at the least why don’t all of you are not sending your statement about the case to the police either through legal counsel or through post? you are aiding criminals ,by denying me job oppurtunities in R.B.I CURRENCY NOTE PRESS mysore , city civil court ,bangalore , distict court , mysore ,etc & by illegally closing my newspaper. Even  Press  accreditation  to me as a web journalist is denied till date.  there is a gross, total mismatch between your actions and your oath of office. this amounts to public cheating & moral turpitude on your part.

1.you are making contempt of the very august office you hold.
2.you are making contempt of the constitution of india.
3.you are making contempt of citizens of india.
4.you are sponsoring & aiding terorrism & organized crime.
5.you are violating the fundamental & human rights of the citizens of india and of neighbouring countries.
6.you are violating & making contempt of the U.N HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER to which india is a signatory.
7.you are obstructing me from performing my fundamental duties as a citizen of india.
8. As a result of your gross negligence of constitutional duties you have caused me damages / losses to the tune of RUPEES TWO CRORE ONLY.

9. You are responsible for  crime cover ups mentioned in my RTI Appeals , PILs and continuation of those crimes unabated.

10. You are  responsible  for denial of information,  which  vindicates the crimes of powers that be.

11. You are responsible for physical assaults , murder attempts on me.

12. You are responsible for  job denials to me at NIE , PES Engineering college , RBI Press , Mysore , Bangalore Courts.

13. You are responsible for my  illegal retrenchment from RPG Cables ,  denial of  medical care to  me towards occupational  health  problems.

14. You are responsible for denying me legal aid.

15. You are responsible for illegal closure of my news paper.

16. You are responsible for  denial of press accreditation  to me as a web journalist till date.

17. You are responsible for repeatedly  passing on my appeals to police. So that  they can  take  statements , close the file under the threat of police power.

18. You  have violated my Human Rights & Fundamental Rights.

19. In terms  of  Integrity , Honesty  You & other public servants are  nowhere near  Baba Saheb B R Ambedkar , Mahatma Gandhi  &  Satya Harishchandra . Many Public servants are  UNFIT to be in their posts.

You are hereby called upon to Pay damages to me and SHOW-CAUSE within 30 days , why you cann’t be legally prosecuted for the above mentioned crimes . If you don’t answer  it  will be admission of the  charges  by you.   It will amount to confession of crimes on your own.

If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants , Chief Justice of India & Jurisdictional District Magistrate will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.

if anything untoward happens to me or my dependents , the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty judges , police officials , public servants & Constitutional fuctionaries.

Thanking you. Jai Hind , Vande Mataram.

It is the duty of Supreme Court of India to Protect , Guard the constitutional rights , fundamental rights of every Indian citizen . Since 25 years  I am  appealing  to SCI  about  issues concerning public welfare , national security , etc and as a result suffering injustices , my constitutional rights , human rights are repeatedly violated  but SCI is mum even when repeated appeals were made to it. Paradoxically , after these appeals for justice , I have suffered more injustices , attempts on my life were made ,  physically assaulted , livelihood  / jobs were  denied , news publication closed , press accreditation denied ,  received threatening  calls , blank calls, even to date  rough elements follow us , rough elements  scout  near home at mid night. Does  not these indicate some ties between rough elements & SCI  Judges ?

 

Public Interest Litigation is an appeal  for justice  to the courts , to redress  the injustices meted out to  the public.  Individual cases of injustices  pertaining to an individual are not covered under PIL, however  an individual an activist  who  is fighting for public causes  suffering  injustices  as a result of   his struggle  ,caused by powers that be to silence him  can club  his individual case under the public causes  (PIL ) he is  appealing.

 

Nowadays people of questionable character , integrity  are being selected to public posts , end result is present day india.  In the following web sites I have shown  few actual cases of crimes by judges & police , just imagine what type of justice common man gets.

Police show full bravery , courage , use  full might of law while acting against innocents , commoners. Even  takes suo motto action. Frequently crosses legal limits  while acting against commoners like 3rd degree torture , arrest / search  , seizure without warrant , arrest in mid night , etc . While they are supposed to take action against rich crooks , their own corrupt colleagues  no suo motto action , delayed action inspite of complaint  allowing time for rich crook to get anticipatory bail , no 3rd degree torture on him , no arrest , search , seizure without warrant. Where is the bravery , courage of police ?

Judges show their full wisdom , apply rigid law book while  judging cases of commoners , take suo motto action  where as  cases involving rich crooks comes before them inspite of repeated PILs they don’t consider it , let alone take suo motto action. Judges make far fetched interpretations of law , ultimately benefitting the rich crook. Where is the wisdom of Judges ?
I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.

   Powers that  be , higher ups have referred all my previous cases to police although in most of the cases  police don’t  have jurisdiction over it.  It  sends  a subtle message by police force to  the  complainant  to keep silent . In the remaining cases  which are under their jurisdiction police  don’t act against higher ups , high & mighty. In such cases police lack  practical powers , their hands are tied although they  are  honest.  As a end result , police  have repeatedly called   me to police station  number of  times  ( have never called guilty  influential persons even once)  took  statement  from  me and closed  the files.  Hereby , I do make it clear  the statements made by me  in my original petitions , PILs , news papers  , etc  while I was in  a free & fair atmosphere  are  TRUE  , over rides , prevails over all the statements made by me before police  earlier and  which will be made by me  in future before police.

If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members – In such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , Judges , public servants & Constitutional functionaries.

https://sites.google.com/site/sosevoiceforjustice/karnan-vs-criminal-cji  ,

https://www.scribd.com/document/346793283/Karnan-Vs-Criminal-CJI  ,

Hon’ble  CJI    by sending hundreds of policemen to   serve arrest warrant to Justice Karnan  as if to arrest a dreaded  criminal  and by calling a judge as lunatic and  asking  police force to produce  him for medical examination  with  force  , you are  stooping to a low level .  You  and incumbent   president of india are also accused of corruption by  former Arunachal Pradesh chief minister  late Kalhikho pul. You are  intentionally deviating from core issue of corruption by high court , supreme court judges and president of india.  You are accused of crime  and you are trying all out  to hide those crimes , corruption issues and to protect your corrupt colleagues.  CORRUPTION   IS  A PUNISHABLE  OFFENSE  and  hiding , covering up crimes , criminals  is also one more offense. When you are the accused , how can you judge your own case.  Before going further  on contempt charges against karnan  , supreme court must  immediately  take up corruption charges against incumbent president of india , chief justice of india and  corrupt judges accused by Justice karnan.

The  mafia  of corrupt  has never allowed for transparent , impartial   investigation into criminal cases  involving higher judges & public servants. Justice Karnan  is in  the position of  high court judge due to his merit , talent , education  not  on the basis of reservation or anybody’s mercy. Justice Karnan is a whistle blower , he has exposed corruption in the higher judiciary , he has not done any crimes. Now , powers that be instead of ordering for a fair investigation into   his charges,  is trying  all out to silence him. Some  people  are  even making personal  attacks , by calling him lunatic. Those persons may be beneficiaries   of the existing corrupt judicial system and they  want to continue  with this present  corrupt system.

In a Mental Hospital ward , say there  are number of  mentally challenged patients  playing inside the ward. A doctor & his assistant enters  the ward to  check , give  routine medicines , injections to patients and then all those  patients call  the  doctor himself as  mad. It is the same situation now.

Are  not  the so called learned , aged advocate ( @ god’s airport )  and  learned   judges   see the  crimes by judges in the past. See  sample cases mentioned above & below.  What  action taken by those  learned judges &   learned advocate , to safe guard law  in the above / below  mentioned cases? Our  judicial  system is  being  weakened  by  corrupt  judges &  few  , greedy   advocates  ( learned  ? ) , NOT by  whistle blowers  who  have sacrificed  to protect the  nation from corrupt people.

In the past  few judges  belonging to powerful castes  facing  charges of  gravest crimes , got a smooth sailing , their  cases white washed. But Justice  Karnan  belonging to oppressed  Dalit  class  is being  tortured  for standing up against corruption. He has done no crimes. This is the very reason few honest judges  & honest  advocates  keep  silent  fearing  victimization.

Hereby , we  demand Honourable Supreme Court of India :

  1. To  order  transparent , impartial   investigation into all the above mentioned corruption cases involving high ranking judges and president of india.
  2. To  order for filing  charges  under SC / ST Atrocities Prevention Act  against  high ranking judges  who  tortured  Dalit Judges – Justice Karnan , Justice Gawl & Justice Ramakrishna.
  3. To  order for filing  charges  under SC / ST Atrocities Prevention Act  against  learned advocate & others  who made personal attacks on Justice Karnan  by calling him as lunatic and  for  obstructing legal prosecution of the corrupt judges.
  4. To immediately stay all contempt proceedings against Justice Karnan till the corruption charges leveled by him  against  high ranking judges are enquired into.
  5. To immediately post all the cases  concerning  Justice Karnan  , to a neutral bench  to conduct trial in a transparent manner as the  accused  are  incumbent chief justice of india  and  a supreme court judge. An accused cann’t be a judge in his own case.
  6. Even though Justice  Karnan is in good health as  stated by him and his family , CJI is hell bent to subject him to forcible medical examination.  It is gross violation of Karnan’s human rights. If at all CJI wants to go ahead , on an equal footing  CJI , his bench colleagues ,  Advocate General Mukul Rohtagi , learned ( ?) advocate Ram Jethmalani must  also be subjected to  medical tests , psychiatric tests , polygraph , lie detector tests  by a neutral agency in a transparent manner.
  7. 7. The outrageous acts , orders of supreme court judges  repeatedly ,  itself proves that indeed they are involved in the crimes of corruption  or  it’s cover up  or   Which is beyond doubt.

Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

Stop targeting whistleblower Justice Karnan. Clean up the judicial system

 By  Mathews J Nedumpara 

 

Senior advocate Ram Jethmalani recently wrote a scathing letter to the Calcutta High Court’s Justice CS Karnan, advising him to take back every word he has said about two Madras High Court judges and pray for pardon. Jethmalani has termed Justice Karnan’s actions as lunatic. Neither me nor the National Lawyers Campaign for Judicial Transparency and Reforms (NLC), of which I am the president, supports Justice Karnan nor justifies his “tantrums”. However, the NLC supports Justice Karnan because corruption has spread its tentacles in the justice delivery system.

Justice Karnan’s anger might be out of feelings of discrimination, isolation and, or, humiliation. His attack on his brother Judges of the Madras HC, sitting and retired, is perhaps vindictive. He accuses them of having indulged in corruption, nepotism and malpractice. Though many accused of corruption and malpractices by him could be innocent or could have indulged in venial and not venal act of corruption or malpractice, the allegation against at least a few of them may not be unfounded.

But the question to be answered is whether alleging corruption against sitting or retired Judges of the high court or the Supreme Court amounts to contempt of court as defined in Section 2(1)(c) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 or will it attract the inherent jurisdiction of the Supreme Court under Art.138, r/w. Arts. 140 and 142 of the Constitution to punish a person for contempt of court.

The concept of contempt of court is a cathartic jurisprudence, which has its origin in the Canon Law and, in particular, the Canon Law of the Dark Ages, a jurisprudence of a time when the offence of heresy, nay, contempt of the Church, where the contemnor is burnt alive at a stake.

The in terrorem (a legal threat, usually one given in hope of compelling someone to act without resorting to a lawsuit or criminal prosecution) jurisprudence of contempt of Court militates against all canons of justice and fair play; it flourished in the Middle Ages when Inquisition was the mode of justice administration, where contemnor was tortured to extract guilt. The foundation of The Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 on the jurisprudence of the Dark Ages is classically exemplified in Sub-Section (5) of Section 17 of the Act.

Our constitutional and criminal laws are founded on the principle that the guilt against a person accused of an offence ought not to be wrung out of him, but has to be proved against him by other men and means.

Sub-Section (5) of Section 17, supra, places the burden to prove his innocence upon the contemnor; it requires him to file an affidavit in support of his defence and empowers the Court to determine the matter on the affidavit of the contemnor. Section 17(5) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971, therefore, is in violation of Article 20(3) of the Constitution, which states that no person accused of any offence shall be compelled to be a witness against himself; so too Arts. 21, 14 and 19 thereof, which are required to be read together.

The power of contempt, as is presently exercised by the judges of the higher judiciary is, with much respect, more susceptible to be abused than used.

I have witnessed such misuse often against the voiceless, the outspoken and persons who are upright. The power of contempt has often been misused against the voices of truth, even though truth is an undeniable defence against contempt proceedings.

Resorting to the power of contempt without application of judicial mind has ramifications. It creates fear, a terror, and worst, hatred, in the minds of citizen. As pointed out, the fear has led to not venturing to write anything about the functioning of the judiciary, except eulogising and flattery.

Undoubtedly, in the suo motu contempt of court proceeding against Justice Karnan, the prosecutor and the judge, both at once, are the judges themselves. The contempt of court law is undemocratic and, assuming it to be otherwise, the question is, could any action lie against Justice Karnan?

It certainly will not, as:

Even assuming that Justice Karnan has made allegations of corruption and malpractices against his judges, he has not committed any contempt of court.

The concept of equality before law and equal protection of law is at the core of the Constitution.

For the judges against whom Justice CS Karnan has made the allegations of corruption, the law provides for remedy, both civil and criminal.

It is enough to refer to the suit filed by Justice PB Sawant, former judge of the Supreme Court, against Times Now claiming Rs 100 crore as damages to support my contention that law provides for adequate remedy if Justice Karnan has made false or scurrilous allegations against his brethren.

Is it then right for me to expect the vilified judges to institute civil and criminal cases like ordinary citizens? Yes, because in the eyes of the law, all are equal; the immunity which judges enjoy is for what they do from the seats of justice.

I am made to understand that some of the allegations made by Justice Karnan are against the chief justice of the Madras High Court on the administrative side about the construction of court complexes, appointment of judges. It must be said that a situation where judges are accused of corruption and they are forced to institute civil and criminal cases is against their prestige and honour and is no way an ideal situation.

Corruption is undoubtedly spreading its tentacles in the corpus of the justice delivery system, which does not merely mean judges alone.

There ought to be a remedy. The remedy is not in silencing the whisleblowers with the guillotine of contempt of court. There’s a need to bring into existence a credible mechanism by which allegations of corruption, nepotism and malpractices against judges are investigated and those who are guilty are brought to book without impinging their independence and the sanctity of the justice delivery system.

The judicial function has been considered to be sacrosanct; courts are temples of justice; its majesty and credibility and the confidence of the public has to be zealously guarded, but not by silencing whisleblowers and upright men and women who dare to point out instances of corruption, nepotism and malpractices, risking their professional prospects, nay, even their freedom and liberty.

Atrocities against Dalits by Judges

–          An Appeal to Honourable Supreme Court of India, National Human Rights Commission & National Commission  for  Scheduled  Castes  /  Scheduled  Tribes

The track record of apex court is not clean. There is secrecy involved in selection , promotion , transfer of judges to high court & supreme court. Supreme court judges take huge pay , perks from public exchequer ( now on the verge of getting triple fold increase in pay ) but are not accountable to public. They don’t give information to public , concerning judges and national security , public welfare.

Consider the case of Dalit judge of sukma , chattisgarh , he was removed for being honest , for upholding law ? Now, Justice Karnan a whistle blower is being victimized. Apex court is not looking seriously  at issues  raised by justice karnan but concentrating on silencing him.

When other high ranking judges  ( having  influence  & belonging to upper castes )  were accused of more grave crimes like  involvement  in sex racket , sex crimes against women , national security crimes  , etc , they were treated with kid gloves , cases hush hushed , white washed.  Inspite of  fervent  appeals  even  apex court didn’t bother to  conduct a public , transparent enquiry. Now apex court  has  initiated  suo motto  “contempt proceedings “ against  Justice Karnan as he  is a  DALIT  , without influence of powers that be.

So many dalits , weaker section people   were  cheated  of  their job oppurtunities in mysuru university , KSOU , Various Government  Medical  colleges , Government aided  ITIs , Polytechnics in Karnataka state  by scheming  upper caste officials.  Inspite of repeated appeals , why apex court has not taken legal prosecution to logical end and ensured justice to  aggrieved dalits ?  What action supreme court has taken against  KPSC , VYAPAM members who denied  job oppurtunities to merited candidates , dalit & weaker section candidates ?  ? let alone take  suo motto action . No action to logical end.  Day in day out  there are rampant atrocities against dalits , weaker sections of people. Supreme court judges are enjoying lakhs of rupees pay , perks , 5 star bungalows  , foreign trips , weeks long summer / winter  paid  vacations  , proposed triple  fold salary hike  all at tax payer’s expense.  These judges must be first booked for “Atrocities against Dalits , Weaker sections”  under SC / ST Atrocities Prevention Act.

If at all , Supreme Court of India is impartial , without bias , let it come out clean :

  1. To immediately  stay contempt proceedings against Justice Karnan and Order impartial enquiry against  judges accused of corruption , impropriety by Justice Karnan and all other issues raised by him. Take the help of Justice Karnan in collecting evidences.
  2. Order impartial enquiry against almost half of former chief justices of india accused of corruption by NGOs.
  3. Immediately give justice to past Sukma Dalit Judge Mr. Gwal who was unjustly removed , to kadapa judge Mr Rama Krishna and to Justice Karnan.
  4. Immediately  give truthful , full  information , answers  to RTI questions sent to Supreme Court of India by our publication years ago. Inspite of several appeals , majority of questions are unanswered & for few questions got ambiguous answers.
  5. Immediately take action  to protect fundamental rights , human rights of whistle blowers , RTI Activists & Human Rights Activists.
  6. Immediately  take action against  KPSC , VYAPAM   members responsible for illegal recruitments , cancel  all those illegal recruitments and   conduct recruitments afresh  with old candidates.
  7. Immediately  take action against  KSOU , Mysuru University , Government Medical Colleges , Government Aided Polytechnics , ITI officials  responsible for illegal recruitments , cancel  all those illegal recruitments and   conduct recruitments afresh  with old candidates.
  8.    Immediately admit PILs  presented before supreme court of india by our publication .

“Contempt  Proceedings”  should not be used as a weapon to silence voices seeking  justice , accountability of judiciary. Respect of judiciary doesn’t come out of fear rather spontaneously it comes out of a person’s heart  when  he sees a honest judge doing his duties honestly.

BEML RTI Murders

Editorial :  BEML  Housing Society  Murders  RTI  Activists

 

    What action has been taken against guilty office bearers of BEML Housing Society Mysuru & Benagaluru for their crimes. What action has been taken against BDA , MUDA  and other public servants  who aided these criminals in their crimes. Are  the judges  BENEFICIERIES of land crimes  , so keeping mum?

  

Police grill MUDAofficial over RTIactivist’s murder

 

 Police took six people into custody in connection with the death of RTI activist Srinath, whose body was found near Ganjam in Srirangapatna, Mandya district on Friday. Srinath, who had unearthed the BEML Employees Housing Society scam, had been reported missing since Thursday.

 

Police took four office-bearers of the society, an official of the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) and his car driver for investigation on Saturday. Srinath had unearthed various scams of the society in connection with the development of Rajarajeshwari Layout in the city.

 

Srinath and his family had been residing at Rajarajeshwari Layout developed by the society since 2008. The society had allotted the sites without providing basic amenities such as drinking water, streetlights and roads. Even after repeated petitions to the society, the authorities failed to provide facilities and Srinath had obtained related documents about the layout from MUDA under RTI Act, said his brother Srinivas.

 

Srinath brought to light anomalies like illegal allotment of sites, land encroachment and others through the documents he had procured. The society had obtained 105 acres of land from MUDA by providing fake documents and had encroached agriculture lands which were not acquired by the government. Srinath launched a legal fight against the society, said Srinivas.

 

Srinath’s friend Lokesh said site registration and transfer of site documents had stopped after Srinath launched the legal fight. Srinath provided documents to farmers who approached the court, questioning the encroachment of their land by the society. Lokesh said the society office-bearers had approached Srinath several times for a compromise and had also offered him three sites free of charge.

 

 

BEML housing society now in Rs. 500-cr. land scam

 

By  Sudipto Mondal

 

Office-bearers of the BEML Employees’ Housing Cooperative Society, who were at the centre of a recent controversy over irregular plot allotments, appear to be involved in another Rs. 500-crore land scam.

In what has been a season of land scams, this one stands out for the ingenuity with which the system was once again exploited by the society’s president J. Munnagappa and the former vice-president H.S. Kumar.

They posed as farmers and claimed that they lost 100 acres of land during the formation of the Arkavathy Layout by the Bangalore Development Authority, and received compensatory plots in the layout that are estimated to be worth Rs. 500 crore. The compensatory residential plots allotted to them are situated in the vicinity of the Bengaluru International Airport.

On their part, officials of the BDA failed to scrutinise Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa’s claims, although they could have done it by checking the records of the land for which the claims for compensation were raised. The BEML officials “invested” only Rs. 20 crore to secure the illegal compensation from the BDA.

How they pulled it off

Documents provided to The Hindu by the former Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) councillor K.N. Chakrapani show the way Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa staked their claims for compensation.

On February 23, 2004, the BDA issued final notification for 100 acres in Hennur, Gedlahalli, Tannisandra and Byrathi Khane villages.

Soon after the final notification orders were issued, Mr. Munnagappa and Mr. Kumar purchased land from the farmers in violation of Sections 3 and 4 of The Karnataka Land (Restriction on Transfer) Act, 1991, which stipulate that nobody shall sell, mortgage, gift or lease land that has been acquired or notified for acquisition by the government.

Documents of transfer between the original landholders and the two society officials show that the operation was conducted between March 2004 and April 2005, and cost Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa Rs. 20 crore.

Seven-year hiatus

After lying low for nearly seven years, they raised a claim for compensation before the BDA posing as farmers and land losers. For each acre of the 100 acres that they purchased illegally, the BDA gave them plots adding up to 9,583 sq ft.

One such allotment deed registered on April 17, 2012 states that Mr. Munnagappa is a land loser and is being compensated as per the land-in-exchange-for-land policy. (This policy was instituted to make land losers stakeholders in development.)

The land allotted to the two society officials as compensation by the BDA is valued at Rs. 500 crore, at Rs. 5,000 per sq ft. On the other hand, the real land owners got only between Rs. 10 lakh and Rs. 12 lakh per acre from Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa.

Rs. 100 as stamp duty

What is more, Mr. Munnagappa and Mr. Kumar benefited from the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa’s “pro-farmer” policy, under which they were exempted from playing the full stamp duty for the land given as compensation. The allotment deeds show that they paid only Rs. 100 as stamp duty per plot.

Asked to respond, Mr. Kumar initially said that he was acting on the orders of his superiors at BEML. Mr. Munnagappa refused to react.

BDA Commissioner Pradeep Singh Kharola did not respond to repeated phone calls and text messages seeking an explanation.

Terming the scam “daylight robbery”, Mr. Chakrapani has demanded that the State government order a judicial inquiry into the alleged illegalities in the Arkavathy Layout project.

 

 

Neck-deep in corruption charges, BEML chief now accused of fraud

 

V R S Natarajan provided different addresses and wrong age to register three plots in his name in Bangalore and Mysore.

By  Vanu Dev

 

BEML chairman and managing director V R S Natarajan, who is facing a plethora of corruption charges, has another problem on hands.

Natarajan allegedly committed a fraud by providing different addresses and mentioning his wrong age while registering residential plots in Bangalore and Mysore through the BEML Employees’ Cooperative Society (BECS). Disgruntled members of the BECS now plan to approach the Registrar of Cooperative Societies with their complaint.

The plots were allotted to Natarajan by BEML allegedly in violation of cooperative sector rules. According to disgruntled members of the BECS, Natarajan allegedly pressurised the BECS office-bearers to allot him two plots, measuring 6000 square feet combined, in BEML Layout 6th Stage, Bangalore, during January 2005, for a sum of Rs 10 lakh.

The Bangalore plots, number 795 and 796, are valued at more than Rs 1 crore as per current market price. At the time of registering the plots, Natarajan had reportedly provided his residential address in Bangalore, which is his official quarter provided by BEML. He had also mentioned his age as 53 years.

 

During March 2005, the BECS allotted another plot (No 91) at BEML Layout in Mysore. In the registration papers, he has given a Mysore residence address and mentioned his age as 52 years.

“The allotments were made hastily, resulting in a number of discrepancies. The rules are clear about possessing multiple residential plots. Besides, he has mentioned his age wrong. We will lodge a complaint against him with the Registrar of Cooperative Societies,” sources in the BECS said.

The acquisition of the three plots by Natarajan is in direct violation of the rules laid down by the Karnataka government. Section 10 (a) of the model bye-laws for the house building cooperative societies, implemented by the Karnataka government in 1993, clearly states that any member of a housing co-operative society is eligible for a site only if “he/she does not already own a plot or house/flat/apartment in his/her own name, or in the name of any other member of his/her family in the corporation limits/development authority limits/municipal limits in whose limit the society is situated”.

In addition, Natarajan had not completed the mandatory 5 years of service in BEML to become eligible for allotment of the plots. Natarajan had joined BEML in 2002, and by 2005, within a span of three years, the BECS allotted the three plots to him.

In addition to the alleged out-of-turn allotment of plots to Natarajan, another 60 plots were allotted in violation of rules by BECS. Three BEML employees — C Umesh, Martin Luther and S Vishwanatha — alleged that they were transferred from Bangalore to Kolar Gold Fields office after they formally complained to the Registrar of Co-operative Societies against the unauthorized allotments. Subsequently, the three employees approached the high court seeking relief.

However, BECS office-bearers defended the allotments to Natarajan, saying there was nothing illegal in the process. In a statement, the BECS said, “Top officials of BEML in the management and Board have been given sites under the five per cent discretionary quota. Associate members too have been given sites as associate membership is allowed under the law. We have allotted 8,000 sites in Bangalore so far and that includes sites to directors, and chairmen from 1972 onwards.”

But people, who own plots in Bangalore, cannot acquire more even under the discretionary quota. Former Supreme Court judge, Justice Shivaraj Patil, had to quit as the Lokayukta of Karnataka after it was found that he was in possession of multiple residential plots in Bangalore.

 

 

BEML housing society flouted allotment rules: ex-employees

By  Johnson T A ,

 

A housing co-operative created in Karnataka by the employees of defence public sector unit BEML, whose top management is currently under the CBI scanner for alleged irregularities in the purchase of Tatra trucks, has been accused of allotting as many as 63 residential sites in violation of housing co-operative rules in 10 housing colonies under its purview.

In a complaint to the registrar of co-operative societies, some former employees of BEML have accused the management of the housing co-operative of allotting plots to 39 members without applications and 24 outsiders or non-members in its housing colonies.

In a letter written to Karnataka Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, the president of the National Confederation of Ex-employees Association of PSUs, S N Ashok, has linked some of these out-of-turn allotments as payoffs to muzzle questioning of the Tatra deal.

Seeking an inquiry by the Corps of Detectives in Karnataka, Ashok has estimated that property worth Rs 80 crore has been illegally given away to non-employees by the BEML Employees Co-operative Society Ltd.

Apart from allotting properties to persons not connected directly with BEML, the co-operative is accused of allotting land to employees who had not completed a mandatory five-year term with the company, to members of the board and to on-deputation employees.

K S Periyaswamy, an ex-employee of BEML, has alleged that close relatives and friends of T K A Nair, an adviser to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, are among the recipients of sites meant for the BEML employees. The out-of-turn allotments has resulted in several genuine employees not being allotted properties in BEML colonies, Periya-swamy has stated.

The ex-employee of BEML has accused chairman of BEML V R S Natarajan of influencing the management of the BEML Employees Co-operative to make out-of-turn allotments. Natarajan himself has been accused of availing two properties in violation of housing co-operative bye-laws.

Preethi Prabha, a relative of Nair who had been allocated site number 14 measuring 2,400 square feet in a BEML housing colony in the Uttarahalli region of Bangalore in December 2008 had returned her site in 2010 after complaints were filed with the PM, the official of the ex-employees’ confederation said.

There may be many more people connected to top persons in the establishment in the list of illegal allottees of sites in BEML housing colonies, Ashok said. “Every time there was a visiting delegation from the Central government to BEML in recent years, be it an SC/ST commission or any other body the visitors were given lavish gifts, including gold biscuits,” Periyaswamy claimed.

Hundreds of housing co-operatives in Bangalore have over the years been plagued by similar allegations of out-of-turn allotments and violations of bye-laws by managements.

The Bangalore Development Authority which provides the land to housing co-operatives and validates the allotments and their legality rarely intervenes in out-of-turn allotments. Among the most controversial has been the Karnataka State Judicial Department Employees House Building Co-operative Society where the allotment of properties to judges has in the past been called into question. The issue was resolved after a ruling said judges were also eligible.

A case filed against irregularities in housing co-operatives across Bangalore is currently pending before the Karnataka High Court.

No illegal allotments, says Nair

New Delhi: Denying allegations of any ‘wrongdoing’ in the allotment of plots by the Housing Co-operative Society of BEML, Prime Minister’s adviser T K A Nair on Sunday claimed in a statement that “no irregularity or illegality” was involved in it “to the best of my knowledge”.

Nair’s statement came in the wake of media reports suggesting that two plots were allotted to his niece and a friend in Bangalore in an “irregular” manner.

Nair said he had sought “all the relevant facts” in this matter even as he dismissed as “absolutely baseless” any linkage to the Tatra truck deal. “My attention has been drawn to media reports about the alleged irregular allotment of residential plots of the Housing Co-operative Society of BEML to my relatives and family friends. To the best of my knowledge no irregularity or illegality was involved in the allotments,” Nair said.

“I have requested the PMO to obtain all the relevant facts of this matter through the Department of Defence Production,” he said.

The Hindu in its report from Bangalore on Sunday reported that the plots were allotted to Nair’s niece Preethi Prabha and family friend Uma Devi Nambiar at “throwaway prices” in BEML society in South Bangalore in 2008.

It further said the allotments were made at a time when complaints about the role of BEML chairman and managing director V R S Natarajan in controversial Tatra truck deal were pending with the Prime Minister’s Office besides the Central Vigilance Commission and Ministry of Defence. Responding to this, Nair said, “The insinuation linking these allotments with the Tatra deal is absolutely baseless.”

 

Karnataka official Mahantesh’s murder case figures in Rajya Sabha

 

The killing of the Karnataka official SP Mahantesh, said to be the whistle-blower in the controversial land allotments by societies, was raised in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday by CPI-M member KN Balagopal.

   

Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, Balagopal said that Mr Mahantesh was a crucial source of some of the stories that appeared in the newspapers published on the corruption and irregularity in the land allotment for various cooperative societies including that of BEML (Bharat Earth Movers Limited) employees in Banglaore.

   

He said over a dozen RTI activists and whistle-blowers have been murdered in last one year and that the government has “pathetically failed” to protect them, he insisted that the murder of Mr Mahantesh is different as he had released a copy of the report on land allotment to the BEML.

   

Army Chief General VK Singh had said in an interview that the money was offered to him to clear the purchase of 600 “sub-standard” Tatra trucks. Tatra, a Czech manufacturer, supplies trucks to the Army through BEML. These trucks are manufactured in the Czech Republic.

   

On the controversy surrounding the supply of Tatra Trucks to Indian Army through BEML, Balagopal said, “it is for the Centre to prove that the murder is not related to Tatra Truck and BEML.”

   

Mr Mahantesh succumbed to injuries after being assaulted a few days back.  His death triggered strong reactions from the civil society and the political class.

Honourable Chief Secretary , Government of Karnataka & Others

….Respondents

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.

To ,
Hon’ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship’s Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
“Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants.

2. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to government of karnataka authorities , MUDA , BDA , KIADB , MCC , BBMNP , etc seeking information regarding illegal buildings , land encroachments specifically in mysore & bangalore , they didn’t provide me information. Now one land scam after another are tumbling out.

3. I have given certain details to authorities including judiciary , SCI regarding land , lake encroachments in mysore when encroachment was at preliminary stage. The authories could have stopped it , but they didn,t. Now , the hinkal lake , hebbal lake , hootagalli lake & BEML Quarters lake have been encroached to maximum extent and criminals have made crores of rupees profit.

4. Government authorities has not given title deeds to tribals living in forest since centuries , government authorities has not given title deeds to landless people , dalits who are cultivating on government land since decades.

5. Government authorities , police immediately evict , take suo motto action when a poor family , nomadic family just erects a hutment on government land. The same public servants , police don’t take action when a rich crook palatial bungalow , business complex on government land , lake bed. Cann’t they see it. , they can but are hands in glove with looters.

6. even some of the judges don’t take action when appeal for justice is made to them , to evict encroachers , to stop encroachment. It may be quid pro quo arrangement with crooks. See how many judges have benefitted from government discretionary quota allotment of sites , illegal judicial layout , etc.

7. The land encroachers are not poor people below poverty line , they don’t even have ability to build a pucca house. Encroachers are rich crooks , greedy individuals with political connection. So they don’t deserve compassion.

8. Now , government of karnataka is trying to legalise illegalities in buildings , land encroachments , which gives a booster dose to criminals to commit more crimes.

9. As per equitable law if present land encroachments are legalized , in future too government must legalize future land encroachments when ever it takes place.

10. Prior to enactment of AKRAMA SAKRAMA SCHEME of government of karnataka legalizing illegal constructions , land encroachments, MUDA , BDA , MCC , KIADB officials evicted , demolished buildings of encroachers who didn’t cough up bribes. The one who paid bribes , their encroachments , illegal buildings survived and now getting legalized by government.

11. Now , as per equity who ever have been evicted from encroachments , who’s illegal buildings demolished must get compensation from government. If not all encroachers must be evicted & illegal buildings must be demolished.

12. Now  Karnataka High Court  has given green signal to  “AKRAMA SAKRAMA” scheme of government of Karnataka , therby HC Judges are favoring land mafia , criminals.

13. It is the duty of the government  , Police & Court  to  give protection  to journalists , whistle blowers , RTI Activists  who are unearthing  truths , crimes. But  all of them have failed in their duties  to protect RTI Activist Mr.Srinath of Mysuru who was brutally murdered.

14. Recently  Karnataka high court  gave  clearance to Karnataka government’s  regularization of illegal buildings  ( AKRAMA  SAKRAMA ) scheme.

a.  Law is one & same for all.

b.  Government  authorities , police razes down , demolishes  small temporary hutments built by tribals , dalits without  mercy ,  takes suo motto action.  No  court comes to their rescue.

c. Till date  bagar hukum  lands  are not given to dalits , tribals  are not given land rights over their huts in forests. Is Cout  blind , deaf ?

d. However  when rich crooks build  bungalows , commercial complexes  illegally , no suo motto action  taken by government authorizes , police , why ? Courts go a step further it gives  stay orders against demolition  of rich crook’s illegal buildings , asks government to modify plan , law itself  to save illegal buildings of rich crooks.

e. Does Karnataka HC  has  details of exact number of building violations , buildings built on forest lands , lake beds , raja kaluves  with  respective  after  affects on neighbouring buildings , road traffic , ecology , etc  and contingency plan by authorities to overcome those  after affects  casewise backed by technical studies. Make it public.

f. What criminal  action initiated against revenue , police & other officials  who failed in their  duties at the first instance  to stop the  illegal building construction.

g. Small houses  of  poor people  who have  smaller building violations  but  who failed to bribe officials  were dealt mercilessly. Their houses were razed down . Now , will the HC order the government to compensate them , to rebuild houses for them  as the court is now saying they are legal now.

h. Government & HC has given a  cut  off  date  for consideration of  regularization of illegal buildings. When a crime before that cut off date becomes legal , why cann’t it be legal  after that date ?

i. What  guarantee  HC gives no illegal  buildings  has  come up after cut off date  and will never come in future ?

j. If comes what criminal action  against the concerned officials ?

Bottomline : Judges open your eyes , listen , think & then act.

2. Question(s) of Law:

Is robbing another’s property right , legal ? is robbing land , lake – a public property for private , individual use right ? 

Is it  NOT  the  duty  of Police , Court & Government  to  protect Rights , Lives  of  Journalists , Whistle Blowers , RTI  Activists and their family ?

Why   they failed to protect  the life of  Mysuru RTI Activist  Mr. Srinath ? 

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of master minds of land grabbing ,frauds and related crimes.

4. Averment:

Covering up Land Frauds & Land Mafia . Please read details at :

RTI  ACTIVIST’S   MURDER :  POLICE  DETAIN  6  FOR  QUESTIONING 

RTI activist Srinath

Mysuru, Dec. 31 – Six persons have been detained for questioning in the murder of Srinath, a Mysuru-based RTI activist. They were detained this morning based on the clues provided by Srinath’s family members that the RTI activist had faced threats from the corrupt as he had exposed their illegal dealings.

The 36-year-old Srinath, a resident of Rajarajeshwarinagar in city, was murdered in Srirangapatna and his body was found yesterday below the bridge that connects Karighatta and Ganjam. His body including face, legs and private parts bore deep injuries.

The six detained persons include an engineer whose house was recently raided by Anti Corruption Bureau in Mysuru where crores of rupees worth properties were recovered, his driver and four others from BEML Layout who were at loggerheads with Srinath. Though the Police are tight-lipped about the detention, sources told Star of Mysore that they are being questioned at an undisclosed location and clues to the murder might emerge by today evening.

Srinath was active in exposing the corrupt through his RTI activism and had earned the wrath of the rich and the corrupt who saw him as a roadblock for their illegal activities.

He used to fight injustice by collecting information and had made RTI a powerful weapon.

Srinath had also exposed how BEML Layout was built without permission from the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA). Through RTI, he had waged a war against some persons since the last three years for building a layout without mandatory permission from MUDA. This issue had even reached the Saraswathipuram Police Station where compromise meetings were held.

City Police Commissioner Dr. A Subramanyeshwara Rao, Deputy Commissioner (Law and Order) Dr. H.T. Shekar and KR ACP C. Mallik visited the murder spot this morning and held a meeting with in-charge Inspector of Srirangapatna Police Station M.K. Deepak and Sub-Inspector Puneet. The case will be investigated by Srirangapatna Police, sources said.

Speaking to Star of Mysore at the MMCR&I mortuary where the post-mortem of Srinath’s body was conducted this morning, his brothers V. Srinivas and Pradeep said that the RTI activist had faced threat from the MUDA engineer and some persons from BEML Layout whose Khata was not issued by MUDA due to illegality.

“All of them had openly threatened our brother and we suspect their involvement in the murder. We have also given their names to the Police,” they said.

Soon after the murder case was registered yesterday, the Police visited Srinath’s house at Rajarajeshwarinagar and recovered many documents regarding the controversial BEML Layout. Also, many documents regarding other corrupt officers have been recovered, sources said.

Yesterday, Srinath’s body was spotted by some passers-by and in-charge Inspector of Srirangapatna Police Station M.K. Deepak found the body wrapped in four bed sheets. A pit had been dug near the body where turmeric, kumkum, eggs and other items were found.

According to the Police, these items were usually used in black magic and as Dec. 30 (Thursday) was a New Moon (amavasye) the killers would have placed the items to mislead the investigation team.

The Police also suspect that the assailants might have dumped the body near the river after killing him elsewhere.

Srinath had gone out from his house on Thursday evening on his bike (KA-09-HH-5332) and when his brother V. Srinivas had called him up at 7.30 pm Srinath had replied that he was heading towards the house of building supervisor Kumar at Vijayanagar and would return soon.

As Srinath did not return and both of his mobile phones were switched off, the family members had lodged a missing person complaint at the Kuvempunagar Police Station. Srinath’s mobile phones and bike have not yet been recovered.

NAGARAJA . M.R

# LIG 2 , No 761 ,, HUDCO First Stage , Laxmikantanagar ,
Hebbal , Mysore – 570017 , Karnataka State

….Petitioner

Versus

Honourable Chief Secretary , Government of Karnataka & Others

….Respondents

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.

To ,
Hon’ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship’s Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
“Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants.

2. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to government of karnataka authorities , MUDA , BDA , KIADB , MCC , BBMNP , etc seeking information regarding illegal buildings , land encroachments specifically in mysore & bangalore , they didn’t provide me information. Now one land scam after another are tumbling out.

3. I have given certain details to authorities including judiciary , SCI regarding land , lake encroachments in mysore when encroachment was at preliminary stage. The authories could have stopped it , but they didn,t. Now , the hinkal lake , hebbal lake , hootagalli lake & BEML Quarters lake have been encroached to maximum extent and criminals have made crores of rupees profit.

4. Government authorities has not given title deeds to tribals living in forest since centuries , government authorities has not given title deeds to landless people , dalits who are cultivating on government land since decades.

5. Government authorities , police immediately evict , take suo motto action when a poor family , nomadic family just erects a hutment on government land. The same public servants , police don’t take action when a rich crook palatial bungalow , business complex on government land , lake bed. Cann’t they see it. , they can but are hands in glove with looters.

6. even some of the judges don’t take action when appeal for justice is made to them , to evict encroachers , to stop encroachment. It may be quid pro quo arrangement with crooks. See how many judges have benefitted from government discretionary quota allotment of sites , illegal judicial layout , etc.

7. The land encroachers are not poor people below poverty line , they don’t even have ability to build a pucca house. Encroachers are rich crooks , greedy individuals with political connection. So they don’t deserve compassion.

8. Now , government of karnataka is trying to legalise illegalities in buildings , land encroachments , which gives a booster dose to criminals to commit more crimes.

9. As per equitable law if present land encroachments are legalized , in future too government must legalize future land encroachments when ever it takes place.

10. Prior to enactment of AKRAMA SAKRAMA SCHEME of government of karnataka legalizing illegal constructions , land encroachments, MUDA , BDA , MCC , KIADB officials evicted , demolished buildings of encroachers who didn’t cough up bribes. The one who paid bribes , their encroachments , illegal buildings survived and now getting legalized by government.

11. Now , as per equity who ever have been evicted from encroachments , who’s illegal buildings demolished must get compensation from government. If not all encroachers must be evicted & illegal buildings must be demolished.

2. Question(s) of Law:

Is robbing another’s property right , legal ? is robbing land , lake – a public property for private , individual use right ?

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of master minds of land grabbing ,frauds.

4. Averment:

Covering up Land Frauds & Land Mafia . Please read details at :

https://sites.google.com/site/sosevoiceforjustice/rti-first-appeal—muda-bda-kiadb ,

Hereby , I do request the honorable supreme court of India to consider this as a PIL for : “writ of Mandamus” and to issue instructions to the concerned public servants in the following cases to perform their duties & to answer the questions.

The Petitioner has sent many letters / appeals / petitions to supreme court of india & other courts through e-mail , DARPG website & through regular mail requesting them to consider those as PILs. But none ofthem were admitted , even acknowledgement for receipts were not given. See How duty conscious ,our judges are & see how our judges are sensitive towards life , liberty of citizens , commonmen & see howcareless our judges are towards anti national crimes , crimes worth crores of rupees. That the present petitioner has not filed any other petition (which are admitted by courts) in any High Court or the Supreme Court of India on the subject matter of the present petition.

PRAYER:
In the above premises, it is prayed that this Hon’ble Court may be pleased:

a . Hereby , I do request the honorable supreme court of India to consider this as a PIL for : “writ of Mandamus” and to issue instructions to the concerned public servants , Government of Karnataka authorities in the following cases to perform their duties & to answer the questions.
b . to pass such other orders and further orders as may be deemed necessary on the facts and in the circumstances of the case.

FOR WHICH ACT OF KINDNESS, THE PETITIONER SHALL BE DUTY BOUND, EVER PRAY.

It is the duty of Supreme Court of India to Protect , Guard the constitutional rights , fundamental rights of every Indian citizen . Since 25 years  I am  appealing  to SCI  about  issues concerning public welfare , national security , etc and as a result suffering injustices , my constitutional rights , human rights are repeatedly violated  but SCI is mum even when repeated appeals were made to it. Paradoxically , after these appeals for justice , I have suffered more injustices , attempts on my life were made ,  physically assaulted , livelihood  / jobs were  denied , news publication closed , press accreditation denied ,  received threatening  calls , blank calls, even to date  rough elements follow us , rough elements  scout  near home at mid night. Does  not these indicate some ties between rough elements & SCI  Judges ?

 

Public Interest Litigation is an appeal  for justice  to the courts , to redress  the injustices meted out to  the public.  Individual cases of injustices  pertaining to an individual are not covered under PIL, however  an individual an activist  who  is fighting for public causes  suffering  injustices  as a result of   his struggle  ,caused by powers that be to silence him  can club  his individual case under the public causes  (PIL ) he is  appealing.

 

Nowadays people of questionable character , integrity  are being selected to public posts , end result is present day india.  In the following web sites I have shown  few actual cases of crimes by judges & police , just imagine what type of justice common man gets.

Police show full bravery , courage , use  full might of law while acting against innocents , commoners. Even  takes suo motto action. Frequently crosses legal limits  while acting against commoners like 3rd degree torture , arrest / search  , seizure without warrant , arrest in mid night , etc . While they are supposed to take action against rich crooks , their own corrupt colleagues  no suo motto action , delayed action inspite of complaint  allowing time for rich crook to get anticipatory bail , no 3rd degree torture on him , no arrest , search , seizure without warrant. Where is the bravery , courage of police ?

Judges show their full wisdom , apply rigid law book while  judging cases of commoners , take suo motto action  where as  cases involving rich crooks comes before them inspite of repeated PILs they don’t consider it , let alone take suo motto action. Judges make far fetched interpretations of law , ultimately benefitting the rich crook. Where is the wisdom of Judges ?


I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.

Powers that  be , higher ups have referred all my previous cases to police although in most of the cases  police don’t  have jurisdiction over it.  It  sends  a subtle message by police force to  the  complainant  to keep silent . In the remaining cases  which are under their jurisdiction police  don’t act against higher ups , high & mighty. In such cases police lack  practical powers , their hands are tied although they  are  honest.  As a end result , police  have repeatedly called   me to police station  number of  times  ( have never called guilty  influential persons even once)  took  statement  from  me and closed  the files.

 

Hereby , I do make it clear  the statements made by me  in my original petitions , PILs , news papers  , etc  while I was in  a free & fair atmosphere  are  TRUE  , over rides , prevails over all the statements made by me before police  earlier and  which will be made by me  in future before police.

 

If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members – In such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , Judges , public servants & Constitutional functionaries.

Our whole hearted respects to honest few in judiciary , police & public service who are an exception.

Judges & Police themselves must first learn to respect  human beings  as human beings. When you treat them like animals  they will also reciprocate do remember.  Or else  the almighty will ensure DOG’S DEATH to corrupt judges & police. On the D Day in the Almighty’s court  corrupt judges & police will face  ultimate punishment , no match fixing.

Judges & Police must do their constitutional duties  without bias , refer following case details and  act  :

The public servants & the government must be role models in law abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-free under his patronage.  even if a police , public servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the aggrieved.  just think , if a judge himself that too  of apex court of the land  himself  commits crime – violations of RTI Act , constitutional rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the public from performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ?

It gives a booster dose to the rich & mighty , those in power , criminals in public service to commit more crimes. that is exactly what is happening in india. the educated public must raise to the occasion & peacefully , democratically  must oppose this criminalization of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can build a RAM RAJYA OF MAHATMA GANDHI’S DREAM.

Day after day we are seeing allegations against judges  in crimes against women , sex crimes , judicial orders for money , etc in the media.  There is total secrecy in the functioning of judiciary in india  with regards to disciplinary proceedings , promotions  and selection of judges.  We the public don’t know whether proper investigation / enquiry is done in such cases of allegations against judges , what action taken against the guilty judges ?

Hereby , we demand  code of conduct for judges &  police  with  provision of  criminal prosecution of  violators.

Regard for the public welfare is the highest law (SALUS POPULI EST SUPREMA LEX).

No man shall be condemned unheard (AUDI ALTERAM PARTEM).

No man can be judge in his own cause (NEMO DEBET ESSE JUDEX IN PROPRIA SUA CAUSA).

An act of the Court  or public office  shall prejudice no man (ACTUS CURIAE NEMINEM GRAVABIT).

Why NOT  Demolish  Minister’s illegal  Bungalows

    There are  cases of present ministers , past ministers , MLAs , IAS , IPS officers encroaching government land , lakes , etc and have built palatial bungalows , commercial complexes. Why revenue officials , police are  NOT showing guts ,  performing impartial duty by demolishing those  illegal structures as they do mercilessly with houses of commoners , poor ?

 Infosys  SAVE   Hebbal  Lake  in  Mysuru  from Land Mafia

 

   As part of  it’s  CSR  initiative,   Infosys  the software giant has recently  agreed to fund the  beautification , preservation of  Hebbal  Lake in  Mysuru city of Karnataka state , India. We welcome the good move by  Infosys.

   However  various lakes  including  Hebbal  lake  in mysuru city built by erstwhile  rulers  are encroached by land mafia. The good brand name  of  Infosys  should not be   misused by  authorities  or powers that be  to cover up the crimes of  Hebbal  lake encroachments.

  Till date  “Raja Kaluve” encroachments , encroachments of Hebbal lake , hootagalli lake , hinkal lake , BEML Quarters lake Ningaiah lake , etc  are not cleared.  Public Interest Litigation (PIL)  in this matter  is pending before the  Honourable Supreme Court of India for admission.  Hard earned Infosys share holders money should not be wasted on  disputed location.

    Even after years ,  MCC , MUDA , BDA & KIADB  are not giving  full information / answers to our following RTI  questions regarding  Land crimes. To begin with let MCC , MUDA , KIADB  answer  following  three questions :

1.     Where  are the encroachments of  various lakes , Raja Kaluve in mysuru  city  has taken place ? who are  the encroachers ? what action taken by authorities ?

2.     How much land belonging  to Sri Laxmikantaswamy Temple , Hebbal , Mysuru  has been encroached ? who are the encroachers ? what action by authorities ?

3.     How many commercial complexes , big residential apartments  in Mysuru city are built  without provision for fire exit , parking lot ? what action by authorities ?

 

   To preserve lakes Government of Karnataka must  :

1.     First conduct survey of sites / lakes  , clearly marking the encroachments.

2.     Make the name of encroachers public. Name them & Shame them.

3.     Evict the encroachers & initiate legal prosecution against them.

4.     Finally invest public funds or corporate funds  for preservation  &  beautification of lakes.

 

     Till such time we urge  the  Infosys  management  to with hold  CSR funding of  MCC  or MUDA  or  KIADB   for the purpose of Hebbal Lake  preservation.  Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

 

 

Your’s  sincerely ,

 Save  Hebbal  Lake  Save  BEML Quarters Lake  in  Mysore            –  An  Appeal  to  Honourable Supreme Court of India

     In the  past , Mysore Maharaja & other philanthropists  have donated  their personal lands , properties , built many lakes & ponds in mysore , bangalore  and other places with public concern  ,  public  wellbeing  in their mind . They built  these lakes & ponds  in addition to preserving the natural lakes & ponds.  They  knew  about the importance of ecological balance & environment. The present rulers , IAS & KAS  babus  have even failed to  preserve  the lakes & ponds  built  decades ago , let alone build one.   These  Public servants have extended their tacit  support to building mafia , to   kill these lakes & ponds , to fill those  lakes with industrial effluents ,  sewage  & building  mud wastes. After killing those lakes & ponds , the building mafia encroaches on it  & usurps  that  public property  in turn selling it for crores of rupees.

 

    In this way , Hootagalli lake was killed  &  encroached by Kaynes Hotel  ( now silent shores hotel) ,  Hebbal Lake  is being  killed & encroached  from all sides by industries  and  the lake infront of BEML Quarters  is being killed  &  land  demarcation for selling those  land has already begun.

 

The public servants  were totally  indifferent  towards  public outcry against this . The IAS & KAS  babus  who are also magistrates  with judicial authority  have failed  in preserving these lakes & ponds inspite of appeals  to them.  These death of lakes resulting in their encroachments could have been prevented earlier  by DC , Tahsildar , MUDA Commissioner & KIADB Officers. Even I have appealed to them through my web news paper , they didn’t take action at all.  I have made RTI request to those authorities  to give me information regarding status of those lakes  years ago , fearing  truth will come out  they didn’t answer my questions in full , they only gave half truths. When I persisted with  my  RTI request  the Mysore District Magistrate at that time  Mr. P.Manivannan repeatedly called me over phone , abused me & threatened me .  Even threats were made by some policemen  in mufti .  Finally that lake land was allotted to a person  supposed to be close to  the Industries minister at that time.  The courts  are dispassionate & inhuman , while passing eviction orders against poor people , the  police are full of guts  & show their full bravery , valour against these poor land encroachers. Fine , let us appreciate their duty consciousness . However  rich & well connected criminals have illegally encroached upon  public lands , the same  courts  and police are not taking  appropriate action  inspite of repeated appeals , why ?  Even the  Supreme Court of India & Police are Weak & Meek before Land Mafia. Don’t the same Judges & Police have Guts , Bravery , Duty Consciousness & Integrity to take action against such  rich land grabbers ?  The answer lies in the following articles. Once again  we offer our conditional services to Supreme Court of India  , to legally apprehend criminals while the respective public servants have failed to do the same.

 

Hereby , we request the honourable Supreme Court of India ,

1.      To  initiate criminal prosecution  against  Mysore  district magistrate , Mysore  taluk magistrate , MUDA  Commissioner  , Jurisdictional Police Officers & KIADB Officer  , for making contempt of  Supreme Court of India  Order  applying throughout  india to preserve lakes & ponds.

2.      To evict all encroachers forth with .

3.      To  immediately stop all flow of industrial effluents & sewage  to these lakes & ponds.

4.      To initiate criminal prosecution  against  encroachers of these lakes &  pollters , killers of these lakes.

5.      To  preserve  the said  lakes & ponds  , by recovering cost from encroachers , polluting industries  and the  co-conspirators  Mysore DC , Mysore Tahsildar , MUDA Commissioner , KIADB Officer & Jurisdictional Police Officers.

6.      To protect me , my family members & dependents  from  land mafia & co-conspirators of the crime.

7.      To  order , to issue Writ of Mandamus  to  Mysore District Magistrate , MUDA Commissioner  & KIADB Officer to disclose all the information  sought by me in my RTI request publicly. The copy of my RTI request is reproduced below.

 

Date : 17.11.2012                                                         Your’s  Sincerely,

Place : Mysore                                                              Nagaraja.M.R.

 

Top companies in Byrasandra lake encroachers’ list

 

A Karnataka High Court commissioner’s report has confirmed encroachment of Byrasandra lake and identified Bagmane Tech Park, Congnizant Technologies Pvt Ltd and Electronics and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE) among the “occupiers” of the encroached lake area.

The commissioner, who submitted his report to the court recently, has identified 3.95 acres of encroachment on the lake, which is located on survey number 112 of Byrasandra village, Varthur hobli, in Bengaluru East taluk.

The total area of the lake has been identified as 12.21 acres, including the encroached portion, as per the report, a copy of which is available with DH.  The report has identified seven different “occupiers” of the encroached lake area. Another public sector undertaking Bharath Earth Movers Ltd is also listed.

Bagmane Tech Park, which is one of the prominent IT parks in Bengaluru and houses many top IT companies, has occupied 36 guntas of land (approximately 39,207 sqft).

A portion of the LRDE campus, a laboratory of the Defence Research and Development Organisation, is located on the lake area too. It has occupied 19.5 guntas, as per the report.

The court had in January 2014 appointed Commissioner of Survey Settlement and Land Records (SSLR) as its commissioner and directed him to conduct a re-survey of the lake and submit a report.

The court had ordered the re-survey as some aggrieved private companies challenged a move by the revenue authorities to recover the encroached lake land in 2013. Encroachment of Byrasandra lake was first identified in 2007 by the then legislature committee on encroachment of government lands headed by A T Ramaswamy.

The court commissioner has prepared a sketch and a map of the lake, identifying the exact boundary. The report has identified and measured encroached and unencroached portions.

Encroachments have been marked on the spot as per the sketch. A prior notice was also issued to all the aggrieved persons before conducting the re-survey. The re-survey was carried out by the then SSLR commissioner Munish Moudgil.

Bengaluru Urban DCShankar said the re-survey has proved encroachment of the lake by Bagmane Tech Park and others.

“Nearly one acre of encroached vacant land of the lake has been already recovered. Now action should be taken on recovering areas where buildings are located. We have brought the issue to the notice of the legislature committee on lake encroachment headed by Speaker K B Koliwad. Action will be taken as per the committee’s directions,” Shankar said.

 

Judicial Layout Site Allotment – BRIBE TO JUDGES ?

  Throught this publication term JUDGE  includes public servants performing quasi judicial functions also. Supreme Court & High Court judges are  repeatedly neglecting our appeals for justice , to  reign in land mafia.

Is the  allotment of  residential plots to Judges @ yelahanka Judicial Layout , a mode of  paying bribe to judges by the biggest litigant government itself & the  corrupt public servants in the government. So that the government can pass illegal laws like “Regularization of Illegal Buildings” , “ Illegal Appointments to Medical colleges in Hassan , Mysore” ,etc &  ministers , IAS officers  can indulge in illegal unconstitutional acts , but the courts will not  take any  appropriate action suo motto or based on any petition. IT IS  MUTUAL HELP , NEXUS OF TWO CRIMINALS – JUDICIARY & GOVERNMENT. Ofcourse , there are honest few exceptions in judiciary & government. We Respect those honest few.

 

 

 Just months back , we have witnessed the collapse of a multi storied building in bellary ,Karnataka & we have witnessed  a fire tragedy in a  multi-storey building in Bangalore,  months ago there was collapse of a huge building under construction in Bangalore , all resulting in loss of human lives. Recently we have seen de-notification scam involving VVIPs . All these are the result of violations of Urban Town Planning Laws , Building bye-laws which  are observed more in breach by the criminals & conniving public servants .  The authorities are behaving like real estate agents of criminals , by-passing norms , framing laws to the tune of criminals . Authorities are not honoring RTI requests & even high ranking IAS officer  repeatedly threatens a commoner  seeking information under RTI ACT .

 

Before embarking on land acquisition for any projects government authorities must plan & assess what are the actual requirement of land for that particular project. After finding out the actual requirement of land , they must  assess the loss of forest area , cost of compensation pay-out , cost of rehabilitation of people , environmental damages & resultant health damages to people in surrounding areas ,it’s resultant losses when the project gets running , if at all the benefits , profits from that project far outweighs the losses ,then only project should be put before the public for their consent. Ministers & IAS officers must not take these decisions all by themselves in a hush – hush manner.

 

Even when a project is downsized , from the previously approved size , the land left over , surplus land must be given back to the original owner on first priority . The project managers must not sell those surplus lands to third parties for a premium .

Even when KIADB ,BDA ,MUDA & other authorities acquire lands from farmers ,for constructing industrial  parks or residential layouts , etc , has framed comprehensive development plans (CDP) for their respective cities , clearly demarcating land usage pattern . However after acquisition of land , the KIADB , BDA , MUDA , etc are selling those very lands to private third parties for different land usage purposes ,completely violating CDP. Are these KIADB , BDA , BBMP , MUDA ,MCC real estate agents of Rich people ?

 

Now , consider NICE – BMIC SCANDAL or MINING Scandals , public servants in responsible positions are accusing each other , there by proving that almost all of them are criminals. In democracy , ministers & IAS officers are public servants , MLAs , MPs are not leaders just public servants  – representative of people. They must represent people’s wishes & must order the IAS & other officers to fulfil the wishes of people as per legal provisions.

Information input  forms part of process of one’s expression. One’s expression in any forms – written , oral , etc becomes information input to the opposite person , in turn he expresses his reply. Information & Expression are inseparable parts & form lifeline of a democracy. That is the reason , Right to Expression is the basic fundamental right as well as human right of every Indian citizen. When a person’s  right to expression is violated , his other rights to equality , justice , etc also  are violated. Suppression of Information amounts to curbing of Expression.

 

In a democracy , people have a right to know  how the public servants are functioning. However till date public servants are hiding  behind the veil of  Officials Secrets Act (which is of british vintage created  by british to suppress native indians). By this cover-up public servants are hiding their own corruption  , crimes , mismanagement , failures , etc. even RTI Act is not being followed intoto by public servants. However the recent delhi high court ruling affirming that CJI is under RTI purview & bound to answer RTI request , is noteworthy.

 

Our previous RTI request to CJI , union home secretary of GOI, President of India  , DG & IGP of GOK and others were not honored. The information I sought were answers to the following questions mentioned in the below mentioned websites . the questions concerned the past , present continuing injustices meted out to  millions  of Indian citizens , due to wrong / illegal work practices of  Indian judges , police & public servants  .   The  information we sought would expose the traitors , anti-nationals , criminals  in public service.  The information we are seeking are no defense secrets , no national secrets. The truthful information exposes the anti-nationals , traitors in the public service & strengthens our national security , national unity & integrity.

 

Hereby , I do request the honorable supreme court of India to consider this as a PIL for : “writ of Mandamus” and to issue instructions to the concerned public servants in the following cases to perform their duties & to answer the  following   Cross –  Examination / RTI  questions.

LITMUS  TEST   for   HONESTY   of   SUPREME  COURT  OF  INDIA        

 

AKRAMA SAKRAMA  /  REGULARISATION  OF  ILLEGAL LAND ENCROACHMENTS  ILLEGAL LAND CONSTRUCTIONS   BUILDING BYE-LAW VIOLATIONS  

 KIADB de-notification scandal , BMIC – NICE SCANDAL  , MINING SCANDALS and Threats to RTI Applicant

 

 Rich builders , crooks in their  greed for more money  ( knowing fully well the illegalities )  have constructed  buildings  on public land  ,  constructed  buildings violating  the building  bye-laws.  Now , those crooks are earning  lakhs of rupees rental income .  The  government  law enforcement agencies  were mum , didn’t demolish such buildings  in time , allowing time for crooks  to  benefit from  anticipated regularisation.  However   the same government agencies  have not shown kind consideration  to  poor  people  who have  constructed temporary  hutments  on public land . Those hutments were immediately demolished & people evicted.

 

These building  bye-law violators , Land grabbers are not poor people  living below poverty line  earning  only rupees 32  per day as per planning commission of india. These rich crooks don’t deserve sympathy , kind consideration  as they  have committed the crime knowing fully well the illegalities  and they  can  bear the loss due to the demolition of their illegal buildings. The government must  also recover rent & other monetary gains  made out of those illegal buildings by the  builder.

 

The recent  move of Government of Karnataka  to regularize  building bye-law  violations  &  Public Land Grabbers amounts to :

1.      Rewards  for illegalities , crimes  if  one is rich.

2.      Punishes , demotivates  honest law abiding citizens.

3.      Double standards in law – one set for rich & one set for the poor.

4.      Total  disregard  to safety  of  people  in those illegal buildings  .

5.      Total disregard to safety  of  people  in the neighbourhood  and  people using  roads  passing  by those  illegal buildings.

 

 

Bangalore Rural DC Aiyappa, three revenue officials held

http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/images/pixel.gif

BANGALORE: Lokayukta police have arrested Bangalore Rural district deputy commissioner MK Aiyappa, a special tahsildar, a revenue inspector and a sub-registrar for allegedly changing records pertaining to 32 acres of land in Survey No. 62 of Madappanahalli, near Yelahanka.

Lokayukta additional director general of police HNS Rao said they registered a case against 15 persons, including IAS officer Aiyappa (then Bangalore Urban deputy commissioner), special tahsildar (Bangalore North) K Gopalaswamy, revenue inspector N Balakrishnamurthy of Arakere circle, Hesaraghatta, and sub-registrar (Hesaraghatta) KV Ravi Kumar.

The arrested officials were produced in the Lokayukta court, which remanded them to a day in police custody. The Lokayukta court had on November 5 last year ordered that a case be filed under Sections 13 (1)( c), (d), (e) and 13(2) read with Section 12 of the Prevention of Corruption Act as well as criminal Sections 406, 409, 420, 426, 463, 468, 471, 474 read with Section 120-B (criminal conspiracy).
The Lokayukta court order followed a private complaint by P Anil Kumar, a resident of Hesaraghatta.
Preliminary investigation revealed the land was gomala land (common property resource used for livestock grazing), but a person named Narasimhaiah claimed ownership of all the 32 acres. Records were created and the land restored to him, but the then revenue inspector restored the title to the government. Even as the legal dispute was pending, the land was purchased by private individuals. The Hesaraghatta sub-registrar registered the land in their names in 2009.
“The present rate for the land is about Rs 60 crore. Bigwigs named in the complaint will be questioned, including the purchasers. Everything is on record, and nobody can deny their responsibility in taking away government land and restoring it to private individuals,” a Lokayukta police official privy to the investigation told TOI.
There will be some more arrests, he added, as there’s ample documentary evidence and other witness accounts available.

 

NICE Corridor Questions to former  CHIEF MINISTER .Mr.Yediyurappa

LAND SCAM   IN   TAMILNADU   One for my officer, one for my boy…

 

Land and property are coveted assets. So why are chief ministers allowed to give these away as favours? JEEMON JACOB tracks how Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi has been using his quotas

IN NOVEMBER, Chief Minister of Karnataka BS Yeddyurappa almost lost his job, due to the uproar over preferential allotment of land and property to his sons and close associates. He has since cancelled the allotments, asked his children to move out of his official residence, and retained his seat through some deft political manoeuvring and muscle-flexing. At the height of the campaign against him, as political opponents paraded on apparent moral high ground, TEHELKA published details of plots similarly allotted by previous Karnataka chief ministers, both of the Congress and the JD(S), to relatives, servants, drivers, maids and partymen (LAND SCAM 2.0, 4 December). The purpose was not to make Yeddyurappa’s wrongdoings look less shocking, but to show that the problem was endemic and needed rooting out. The right given to chief ministers to hand out public land to a favoured few — relatives, bureaucrats, judges, police officers and others — smacks of nepotism and arbitrary feudal power structures that should have no place in a modern democracy. (Though there is no immediate proof of this, some of these allotments could also be benamitransactions, in which the ultimate ownership remains with the distributor of the largesse, camouflaged by a stack of fake documents.)

This power — euphemistically called “discretionary quota” — has even been used to favour allegedly corrupt army officers like General Deepak Kapoor (AT EASE WITH GREASE, TEHELKA, 20 November), who was given a large 500 sq yd plot in Haryana by the Hooda government, which then faced the embarrassment of refusing him permission to sell it off before five years had elapsed, as per rules. The plot was given to him by the government as preferential allotment in recognition for his ‘outstanding achievement’.

This week, continuing its campaign against out-of-turn allotments of land and property, TEHELKA has an exposé on Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi. The Tamil Nadu Housing Board (TNHB) which commands a large land bank, has a government discretionary quota (GDQ) under which 15 percent of all allotments can be recommended by the CM. Eligibility for allotment under GDQ is as follows: single/deserted women; widows; social workers; physically handicapped persons; defence personnel; ex-servicemen; eminent persons in the field of science, arts, literature, economics, public administration and sports; freedom fighters; government servants with unblemished service records; employees of PSUs, central government undertakings and nationalised banks; PF institutions; journalists; university staff; and employees of local bodies and municipalities.

While some of these categories sound kosher, most of them raise a fundamental question: why should the government have the power to give coveted land to select employees and journalists over others? The only rationale could be proximity — which is an untenable reason for being the beneficiary of political favours, often worth several crores.

Setting this aside, even within the legal ambit of the GDQ, TEHELKA’s investigation shows that many of the allotments in Karunanidhi’s tenure have violated the rule book. Many bureaucrats and their relatives have been given plots or flats under the category of “social worker”. Some of these last did social work when they were in college; many of them claim to be volunteers in such routine activity as helping in blood donation or eye camps. Many have issued certificates to themselves; some have acquired letters from the Lions and Rotary Clubs with vague endorsements. In other violations, the rules say that no one who has any other land or property in Tamil Nadu or any other capital city, in either their own or spouse or minor children’s name, can apply for GDQ allotments. TEHELKA found this is routinely violated.

Many of the allottees issued certificates to themselves, while some got letters from Lions and Rotary Clubs

The other brazen violation lies in the claim of “unblemished” service records as a qualification for allotment. When RTI activist V Gopalakrishnan sought a list of such bureaucrats, Additional Secretary S Solomon Raj said, “As no unblemished government servant certificates are issued, the question of furnishing a list of names does not arise.” The additional secretary also clarified that the home department didn’t have such a list. This is the phantom category under which many public servants like Jaffar Sait, 1986 batch IPS officer, now Inspector General of Police–Intelligence, got large allotments of land in prime locations. Why them more than hundreds of others? That’s a democratic question the chief minister will have to answer.

PRICE: Rs. 27.55 LAKH & Rs. 30.05 LAKH

VIOLATIONS
The judge was allotted two adjoining plots on the same day (30 March 2008). According to her Disclosure of Assets statement of 2009, the judge already had a house in her name, and another plot in her husband, advocate K Ganesan’s name. The house, in the Uthangarai area of Krishnagiri district, was constructed in 1985 on a plot purchased in 1982. The plot of land is located in Saidapet and was purchased in 1993. She however admits in her declaration that she owns two plots, which she purchased from the TN Housing Board in 2008. But this allocation was made under the General Category. Since judges do not come under any of the quota categories, the government’s way of allotting land to them differs from the rest. Judges are informed about the availability of land. And when they apply for the same, the government facilitates the allotment.

CURRENT MARKET PRICE: Rs. 6 CRORE

VIOLATIONS
Allotted under ‘unblemished’ government servant category. On 6 June 2008, the government transferred the ownership of the plot to his daughter Jennifer Jaffar, then a student. Jennifer made two payments of Rs. 46.03 lakh and Rs.1.73 lakh towards cost of the plot. In February 2009, she paid another Rs.60 lakh. After having paid Rs.1.07 crore, the ownership of plot was transferred to her mother Parvin Jaffar. Interestingly, Parvin also made the payment all over again. In October 2009, she paid Rs. 50.64 lakh and then again in November 2009, another Rs. 25 lakh was deposited. A further payment of Rs. 51.5 lakh in the same month was made. Income tax officials feel the Sait family made the double payment to avoid an IT investigation on Jennifer, who would not have been able to show any source of income. The Tamil Nadu Housing Board then returned the original amount paid by Jennifer. Now, Parvin in collaboration with Durga Sankar, son of an IAS officer, has commissioned a builder to construct a multi-storey complex in which 12 flats have already been built. Each flat is expected to fetch an estimated 1 crore. So, by paying Rs. 1.26 crore in 2009, the IGP’s family made a profit of more than Rs. 5.7 crore.

Reactions to Land Scam 3.0

D Yashoda, Congress MLA, Kancheepuram

“I have done a lot of work for Dalits throughout Tamil Nadu, especially in Sriperumbudur and Chennai. I have helped them in getting pattas for their land, recommending their names for loans from banks, distributing cycles to Dalits on the birthdays of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi.”

Jaffar Sait, IPS, IG-Intelligence

“Government agencies have already probed the matter. I am being governed by the conduct rules, so I should not talk to you about the issue. It is advisable that you seek a response from the Tamil Nadu government. I would like to add that if any defamation or liability arises out of your article, necessary legal action would be taken.”

P Moorthy, Madurai MLA

“I don’t know much about the certificate, I think I got the plot because I’m an MLA. I have done a lot of work in uplifting the people in villages of my constituency. That amounts to social work. I don’t need a social work certificate from the Lions Club but my friends, partners and I took the certificate anyway. “

 

 

‘GDQ is a way of making you part of the syndicate’

BY JEEMON JACOB

C Umashanker

PHOTO: JEEMON JACOB

A1990 batch IAS officer, C Umashanker shot to fame during the AIADMK regime when he exposed a scam in the construction of sheds in a cremation ground under the Jawahar Rozgar Yojana when he was additional collector in Madurai. His brush with AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa’s partymen resulted in his transfer out of the district.

Later, when the DMK came to power, he was appointed managing director of the state-run Electronic Corporation of Tamil Nadu and put in charge of procuring colour television sets for free distribution to the poor in the state, in keeping with an election promise of the DMK. He was transferred with immediate effect after he exposed corporate fraud committed by the joint venture promoter ELNET Technologies Ltd.

Later, he was posted as managing director of the state-run Arasu Cable TV Corporation. In this capacity, he opposed the monopoly of Sumangali Corporation run by Kalanidhi Maran. He also took steps to nationalise Sumangali Cable Vision. By that time, Maran had a patch-up with the Karunanidhi family and Umashanker was transferred with immediate effect.

Later, the anti-corruption and vigilance department registered a case against him for disproportionate assets. The government suspended him for claiming fake caste certificate as a Dalit when he is a practising Christian.

Plots are allotted even without any formal applications. There is no transparency at all

He lodged a complaint with the National Backward Commission against his suspension and got a favourable order from the High Court. At present, he is managing director of Tamil Nadu Small Industries Corporation.

Umashanker was allotted a plot (under government order 2D 325) on 3 April 2008 at Thiruvanmiyur Extension when he was in charge of the free colour television for the poor programme. For this, he would have had to pay 55.12 lakh. He wrote to the chief minister that he could not afford to pay such a huge amount. Later, his allotment was cancelled without stating any reason.

Umashanker revealed he had an MIG flat in his name when the plot was allotted and he was not aware about the rule of Tamil Nadu Housing Board (TNHB) that he can’t claim a plot when he has another flat in his name.

It certainly seems commendable that Umashanker turned down a chance to own a plot in Thiruvanmiyur Extension, one of the poshest areas of the city. The plot is just 300 metres from the beach.

Though the entire colony has been parcelled out to those close to the ruling establishment, it is the nouveau riche and the industrialists who dream of owning a house in Thiruvanmiyur, where they can rub shoulders with former judges, bureaucrats and political power brokers. If and when the allottees decide to sell their plots, they can demand extremely high prices.

In a frank chat, Umashanker talks about how the government discretionary quota has been misused. Excerpts:


Why are bureaucrats, judges, former judges and politicians given housing plots in posh localities under government discretionary quota?
Who can refuse a good piece of land in Chennai city? It’s a way of rewarding people for good work done. No inquiry has been conducted in this matter so far. Discretionary quota is the prerogative of the government. After RTI came into existence, several activists are taking up the matter in court. Basically, there is no control mechanism or checks and balances. There is little transparency while awarding the GDQ — the plots are allotted without formal applications.

You were also allotted a plot in 2008 under the ‘unblemished government servant’ category. What happened to the allotment?
Yes, I was allotted a plot in Thiruvanmiyur Extension. Initial payment for the plot was Rs. 25 lakh. I never had that much money. So I requested the government to reduce the price. But there was no response. I did not want a house to compromise my integrity. So I never took possession. Later, in 2009, the government ordered a vigilance inquiry against me and cancelled the allotment. Frankly, I was not aware about the TNHB rules that bars a person having a plot, a flat or a house from claiming another plot.

Do you think the GDQ quota is a way of silencing people, buying them out?
Yes, it is a way of making you a part of the syndicate. Plots or flats are given to those civil servants, judges or relatives of the bureaucrats or politicians for complying with certain requirements. There is no procedure for IAS or IPS officers to get a land or plot or flat in a transparent manner. So everybody uses short cuts.

 

Minister’s DQ proves judges are more corrupt than civil  servant

 

NEW DELHI/BHUBANESWAR: An investigation by Cobra post and IBN Network has revealed how former and sitting judges of Orissa, police officers and bureaucrats have received flats from the DiscretionaryQuota (DQ) of ministers. As a matter of fact, successive Urban Development Ministers in the Naveen Patnaik government have misused the discretionary housing quota.

According to the revelation, the judges have got the ‘minister quota’ flats out of turn and at cheaper rates.

The IBN Network accessed letters of judges written to the government asking for prime property in Cuttack and Bhubaneswar.

Prime properties were acquired in Cuttack at concession rates, bypassing the Cuttack Development Authority. In fact, Sectors 10, 11 and 13 of Cuttack’s Abhinav Bidanasi project has practically become a judges’ residential colony.

Former Chief Justice G B. Patnaik is a resident of flat 1B/22 in Sector 11 while former Orissa High CourtJudge Radhakrishna Patra has flat 1B/23 in the same sector, given out on lease.

Supreme Court judge Deba Priya Mohapatra, Orissa High Court judges Sanju Panda, Madan Mohan Das, Nityanand Prastuti also own flats in Sector 10 and 11.Papers for the flats were prepared quickly and some judges even got preferred plots.

Most of the allotments took place between 2000 and 2007, under the BJP  cadre Urban and Housing Development Minister  Sameer De who was State Development Minister from 2000-2004 and then Kanak Vardhan Singh Deo who called the shots from 2004 to 2007.

All that the judges had to do was written to the Minister. The CNN-IBN has a letter written by Justice Madan Mohan Das to the CDA Chairman and to Minister Kanak Vardhan Singhdeo, asking for a B-Category Flat in Sector 10, saying he would ensure a third party transfer of a C-Category Flat already owned by his wife.Justice Das was allotted the flat in just six days.

 

When asked why the discretionary quota was used to make the allotments, Sameer Dey, former Orissa urban development minister, said, “The Orissa act does not have any such rule. There is 5 per cent and 10 per cent allocation in discretionary quota. Apart from that we don’t have any rule.”

Kanak Vardhan Singh Deo, former Orissa urban development minister, said, “The rule is that only those who apply for the project can be allotted land via Discretionary Quota. So if any such person does not apply what can we do?”

CNN-IBN has also found that many of the judges who were allotted land through the discretionary quota already own ancestral property in Cuttack. Yet the ministers were allotted the land they asked for.

 

Mysore DC indicted for illegally delisting Rs 6k crore land

 

BANGALORE: A major land scam worth nearly Rs 6,000 crore, involving about 2,000 acres at the foothills of Chamundi Hills in Mysore, has been unearthed.

Mysore deputy commissioner P S Vastrad is in the spotlight for illegally delisting in June nearly 2,000 acres of prime government land in favour of the Mysore royal family. The land in question is 1,541 acres in Kurubaralli, 259 acres in Chowdahalli and 173 acres in Alanahalli. The market value of an acre in these areas is between Rs 1 crore and Rs 3 crore.

Some top state BJP leaders and influential religious leaders are said be behind the illegal conversion of the land from ‘B’ kharab to ‘A’ kharab. According to the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964, ‘B’ kharab land is property reserved for a public purpose. Any conversion of this to ‘A’ kharab – making it private property – needs government authorization. But Vastrad passed the order without bringing it to the notice of the government.

“This happened when DV Sadananda Gowda as chief minister held more than 20 portfolios, including revenue. Lack of monitoring in the revenue department enabled the deputy commissioner to change the format,” government sources said. Following complaints against the change in land use, deputy chief minister in charge of revenue K S Eshwarappa ordered a probe by chief secretary S V Ranganath, who has given a report indicting Vastrad of being “guilty of misconduct”.

The land was mentioned as kharab in survey records dating back to 1861. Later, during a resurvey between 1920 and 1930, the same land was shown as ‘B’ kharab.

“It appears the DC executed the order in undue haste. Any decision with respect to such land can only be taken by the government under Section of 86 of the Karnataka Land Revenue Act. The delisting of land from ‘B’ kharab to ‘A’ kharab without considering the original survey records of 1861 is illegal,” the chief secretary said in his report.

Sources in the government said the Mysore royal family had been claiming right over the land after the death of the Mysore Maharaja in 1974, but several orders of the department of personal and administrative reforms clearly state the land belongs to the government. “The heir of the last Maharaja had been raising disputes. Due to this and multiple litigation, unscrupulous elements are trying to falsify records to gain control over this precious land,” they added.

Interestingly, the DC withdrew his June order on August 18 on being indicted. Meanwhile, the Karnataka High Court ordered the status quo.

Chief minister Jagadish Shettar, who wanted to suspend Vastrad, is said to have dropped the idea following pressure from top BJP leaders. The government feels that shunting him out at a time when Dasara preparations are under way would mar the festivities.

“I will urge the CM to convene a meeting and take action against the DC,” Eshwarappa told TOI.

 

DC Vastrad yielded to real estate lobby: MLC

 

Mysore: BJP MLC G Madhusudan on Friday accused Mysore DC P S Vastrad of succumbing to the real estate lobby in a case related to some 2,000-acre land at the foothills of Chamundi Hills.
He has complained to CM Jagadish Shettar in this regard. The BJP leader has also asked for a stay on the proceedings following the order by Vastrad.
In his complaint to Shettar, the MLC said: “The land at the foothills is quite precious and costs several thousand crores as per the present market… You are requested to go through the documents and take up investigation into the matter.” In the strongly-worded letter, he has told the CM that “people are alleging that the DC has succumbed to the real estate lobby.”
Releasing the copies of his petition, and that of related documents to the media on Friday, Madhusudan asked the CM to intervene. According to him, the court of the deputy commissioner has declared it as B-kharab land and has directed the authorities concerned to issue khathas in the name of Srikantadatta Narasimharaaja Wadiyar, the scion of Mysore royal family and other respondents. In 1935 — when Maharaja was ruling the state — the said land was declared as B-kharab, which remained the same all these years. In fact, Maharajas Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar and Jayachamaraja Wadiyar wanted that to be maintained as a green belt to guard the sanctity of the sacred site. “To ensure this, maharaja Jayachamaraja Wadiyar did not make any attempt to register the property in his name till his death,” he contended, adding that he didn’t even go in for partition of the land in Kurburhalli.
Claiming that it is a public property, the MLC accused the DC of taking arbitrary decisions. “First of all, he can’t review any decisions made in the district magistrate court. Secondly, he has to call public objections or have to seek opinion of public prosecutor before conversion of land from B-kharab (unusable land) to A-kharab, which he has not done.”
“There real estate lobby is behind it to usurp the property which needs to be probed,” the BJP leader said. He, however, was evasive when asked to name those involved. When asked whether district minister S A Ramdas is aware of it, he accused him of being negligent on the issue.
Meanwhile, deputy CM K S Eshwarappa, who also holds the revenue portfolio, said that he has convened a high-level meeting, and directed both the DC and the MLC to attend the same.

 

 

BMIC by NICE & land scams  in Karnataka  – an appeal to honourable supreme court of India & H.E.Honourable Governor Of Karnataka

 

When a crime is noticed , it is the duty of the government to investigate who did it ? and to legally prosecute them in court & provide justice . if  thousands of criminals , lakhs of criminals  got together & did the same type of crimes , all of them must be legally prosecuted. Just  for the overwhelming numbers of criminals law of the land cann’t be changed. However  in the Karnataka state , many political bigwigs , rich crooks have done the same crime , LAND GRABBING – illegal possession of government land & illegal constructions over it. Important land records of those government lands , lands belonging to poor are lost in record rooms of civic bodies ( cunningly destroyed by corrupt officials ) Now, their political masters are legalizing the crimes . what a shame to the government of Karnataka ?

 

The  shri.A.T. RAMA SWAMY , (M.L.A) standing committee in the Previous legislative assembly probed  the land grabbings in Karnataka & gave it’s report to the government . However the government in a hurry , is auctioning – off  those government lands without proper publicity  to the auction process , sufficient time for bidder’s expression of interest. In some cases , a pittance is levied as penalty for the illegal occupation to get it legalized. The government is not bothered about legally prosecuting the illegal  occupier  of those lands. In many civic bodies , important property documents belonging to the government  & poor are missing from the record rooms. All these point towards the government intention , to legalise the crimes of  illegal land occupiers who are nothing but their own political  cronies.

 

The recent ordinance by government of Karnataka to regularize land deals is envisaging to legalize the crimes of rich. The illegal land conversions , land encroachments , encroachment of civic amenities made by the rich are being legalized with levying a pittance as penalty in the name of public welfare . Whereas the land worth at today’s market prices are 10’s of thousands of crore it is only wefare of the rich & mighty . IT IS GOING TO BE MOTHER OF ALL SCAMS.  The authorities evict poor tribal people from their ancestral forest area in the name of conservation , evict tribal people from villages in the name of development without proper rehabilitation measures. The government is not giving land rights to slum dwellers , poor , dalits over the land they are dwelling , the government is deaf to appeals of dalits for land rights. However the same government is sympathetic to rich who have encroached land & built huge commercial complexes worth crores violating all norms with total disregard to civic amenity or safety.

 

ILLEGALITIES IN AUCTION OF M/S IDEAL JAWA LTD MYSORE

 

During the auction of above sick industry the land usage was for industrial purpose only. so, people with other commercial objectives were not allowed to participate in the auction. Thereby, the final auctioned amount was very much less than the market value. This has a direct bearing on employees of that industry , lending banks , govt dept , etc who have all put forward their claims for dues from that industry. noW, all of them are getting very much less than what is due from the closed company. A loss of crores of rupees to banks , government , employees has been made by the cunningness of civic bodies.

Now in a backdoor move the M.U.D.A , K.I.A.D.B , M.C.C are moving to give land usage conversion to the new occupier, who is building posh villas & resorts here. Is it right & justified ? should not they conduct auction once again or charge market value to the new owner.

 

LAND MAFIA IN KARNATAKA

 

https://sites.google.com/site/sosevoiceforjustice/_/rsrc/1410523761435/judge---mafia-nexus/ATR.jpeg

 

 

The land mafia which has links with political leadership & top govt servants in the state, is running business widely in & around bangalore,mysore & other major towns. The authorities like city corporation , B.D.A, M.U.D.A , K.I.A.D.B , etc are denotifying the lands meant for public welfare in favour of land mafia. The authorities have earmarked these lands for public welfare ie parks , schools , hospitals at the planning stage itself for current & future needs of the people. In most cases the land mafia has illegally occupied the lands , built commercial complexes & sold it for crores of rupees.

 

1. the authorities are not demolishing these illegal structures & prosecuting the occupiers.

 

2. In some cases the authorities are denotifying , regularizing those illegal occupations by levying a pittance as penalty which is very much less than the market value.

 

3. In some cases for example a notified site for school is alloted to an educational trust. They build 2 rooms in 25% of the site & state that this is free school meant for weaker sections. After a year or two , they state before the authority that to run this school they need funds. So they are planning to build commercial complexes around the school site & by the rent collected from shops they will run the school. In this manner sites meant for schools , hospitals , temples & other social organisations apply for conversion of land usage & use major portion of the land for commercial purposes.

 

Hereby , e-voice  urges the govt of karnataka & other authorities ,

 

1. to clearly demarcate the govt lands & announce it boldly to the public.

 

2. To clearly demarcate lands meant for public amenities both for current & future usage.

 

3. To clearly demarcate lands required for town planning say 20 years down the line.

 

4. To clearly mention in such plans the purpose it is reserved for ie parks , hospitals , schools , etc.

 

5. To impartially act against illegal occupiers – rich or poor.

 

6. Say while denotifying a land meant for school an alternate land for school must be incorporated in the original plan.

 

7. Before denotification public objections must be called for & considered responsibly.

 

8. After denotification the land must be sold at the market rate not the govt rate.

 

9. In case of land usage conversion also the objections from the public must be called for & considered responsibly.

 

10. After land usage conversion an alternate land must be incorporated in the plan for the original use.

 

11. In case of land usage conversion also the occupier must be charged at the market value.

 

12. To declare annually the property details of all officials with denotifying / land usage conversion authorities together with details of their family member’s properties with provision for public scrutiny, cross checking.

 

13. To ruthlessly prosecute the corrupt officials & ministers.

 

14. To make public the report of past district magistrate mysore mr. T.M. VIJAYA BHASKAR about illegal land dealings in & around mysore. Also the action taken report.

 

ILLEGALITIES IN BANGALORE-MYSORE EXPRESSWAY PROJECT BMIC by NICE

 

Different political parties are trading charges against each other about illegalities in the mysore-bangalore expressway project. Grave mistakes have been committed by the previous state governments. The saving grace is judiciary has taken note of it. The fundamental principle behind land acquisitions by the governments is to use that acquired lands for public welfare. As the govt acquires the land with this noble intentions even the land looser contents himself with compensation at govt rate. Always the govt rate is much below market value. If at all the govt wants to give out that acquired land to a private party for private use or for the use of a selected few, the govt must give prevailing market rate to the land looser. In such cases the govt does not have authority to force the land owner to sell his property.

 

In this mysore-bangalore 4 lane expressway project, following inconsistencies are there,

 

1.   this road is not for free public use, but only for those who pays the toll fees.

 

2.   The luxurious resorts , townships , etc which are to be built alongside this road are not open for free public usage but only for the rich who can afford it.

 

3.   The govt has concluded this deal in a hush-hush manner.

 

4.   Any disputes raised by this project should be addressed to international arbiter at london which a poor land owner or general public can ill-afford.

 

5.   The govt has not paid the prevailing market value to the land loosers.

 

6.   The govt has not given the option to land owners not to sell their property.

 

7.      This whole project is for rich , built by the rich for the rich & not meant for public welfare.

 

The govt must give back the lands to the owners who wants it back & must pay the market value to those willing to sell. As this project is built by wealthy people for wealthy people why cann’t they cough- up market value?

 

CRIMES BY BANGALORE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY ( B.D.A)

AGAINST A POOR WOWAN

 

The B.D.A flouts it’s own rules & spreads red carpet for big land developers & land grabbers. B.D.A posting is a huge money spinner for corrupt officials. The corrupt B.D.A officials work hand in glove with criminal elements & rowdies. They illegally evict genuine allottees who are poor & without any connections from allotted prime lands & sell-off those prime land to the highest bidder of bribe. The poor fellow is re-alloted lands in backward areas & in some cases left in the lurch.

 

Now , take the following case. Mr. S.D. chandrashekaraiah a poor old man aged around 80 years was allotted with house no.185, kumaraswamy lay-out, first block, bangalore in 1978 vide letter no.

310/267/BDA/ADM/KMRSL(H)/78-79 dt 11/08/1978.

 

The chairman of B.D.A has allotted the built house on lease cum sale basis. The poor old man mr. S.D.chandrashekaraiah complied with all the rules & in accordance with it even deposited 25% of the house cost in B.D.A’S account. However when he went over to his allotted house for residing in it, he found out some rowdy elements were already residing there. He complained about this matter to the legal owner of the house ie B.D.A . the B.D.A officials didn’t take steps to evict the illegal encroachers nor did they make any complaint to the police. His appeals to B.D.A, chief minister of karnataka , etc fell on deaf ears. Hurt by this gross injustice & mounting financial burdens the poor old man died.

 

Subsequently, the poor man’s daughter smt. Nagalakshmi who was also very poor , appealed to the B.D.A authorities once again , to evict illegal encroachers from her father’s allotted house. This time the corrupt B.D.A officials played a different game. They showed her a vacant house, gave her oral instructions to live in that vacant house & told her that they will regularise it in due course. The hapless poor woman took huge loans & repaired the house fit for occupation.  Just before she was to occupy that house , corrupt B.D.A officials once again planted rowdy elements in that house. Once again the poor woman was cheated. She lost her house, on top of it her loan burden mounted.

 

Till date, that poor woman is suffering from these gross injustices of B.D.A . SHAMELESS B.D.A OFFICIALS who take thousands of rupees salary & perks every month, all at the expense of tax-payer has not even cared to rectify the injustice. Thereby, they are violating the poor woman’s fundamental & human rights.

 

Hereby,  e-voice urges  the honourable chief minister of karnataka, honourable lokayuktha for karnataka , honourable chairman national human rights commission , honourable chairman national commission for women & honourable chairman state commission for women karnataka, to take the appropriate action & to speedily provide justice to this poor woman.

 

 

 

MLC alleges encroachment of 15,000 acres of forest land in Chamarajanagar District

 

After exposing alleged encroachment of large areas of land in Survey No. 4 of Kurubarahalli in Mysore, BJP MLC G. Madhusudhan has come up with another exposure of about 15,000 acres of forest land encroachment in Chamarajanagar District. These lands were encroached by private parties owing to an order passed by a former Deputy Commissioner.

This was disclosed by MLC G. Madhusudan at a press meet at Pathrakarthara Bhavan here today.

Elaborating on the issue, Madhusudan said “The 15,000 acres of land covers Survey No. 1 in Palya Hobli of Kollegal taluk and Survey No. 174 in Shivanasamudra forest area in Chamarajanagar district. In fact, Kollegal Assistant Commissioner, in an order passed through the DC Court on Dec. 13, 2011, had reiterated that the said area was a government forest land. However the then DC M.V. Savithri bowing to the pressure of a few vested interests had issued an order on July 8 stating that the said land was not a government property which subsequently let in many private parties to encroach upon the land threatening the rich flora and fauna of the forest region.

Continuing, Madhusudan said that any such important order should have come from the High Court. Hence he urged the government to initiate a CBI inquiry into the case by cancelling the former DC’s order and booking her for criminal offence.

Expressing apprehension that the forest land would become a haven for land mafia, he alleged that former Senior Police officials, rich industrialists and influential politicians were involved in the deal. He, however, did not mention names.

Madhusudan said that he would submit a detailed letter to the Chief Minister enclosing the relevant documents to initiate immediate action.

Referring to the scam of land at the foot of Chamundi Hill, Madhusudan said that he was happy that a departmental enquiry would begin soon on the former Deputy Commissioner Vastrad who was involved in the issue.

 

BDA a den of corruption: T B Jayachandra

Author: ‘BDA a Den of Corruption’

  • Published Date: Jul 28, 2012 8:48 AM
  • Last Updated: Jul 28, 2012 8:48 AM

Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has become a den of corruption and the government needs to take steps to check large scale irregularities in the authority, said Deputy Leader of Congress in the Assembly T B Jayachandra.

 Speaking on the demands on departments in the Assembly, the Congress leader on Friday urged the government to constitute a House Committee to look into the irregularities.

 “The BDA has unlawfully de-notified hundreds of acres of land to help builders to form private layouts.

 It is a big business involving hundreds of crore of rupees,” he alleged.

 He added that many people whose lands were acquired for developing layouts were made to run from pillar to post to get compensation.

 “Many allottees have to run around seeking alternate site as in many instances after allotting sites to people the BDA de-notifies land,” he said.

 Jayachandra said that during a recent visit to BDA’s Arkavathy layout, he found a big building in the land meant for developing a park.

 “It is a 10-year-old project.

 Now all that has come up there are buildings in the site meant for park and an IAS Officers House Building Cooperative Society.

 BDA has allotted sites in bulk to the society.

 Why is BDA selectively helping officers and not common people?” he questioned.

 Jayachandra said that former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda had assured the House of ordering a probe by Corps of Detectives (CoD).

 “Why the CoD inquiry was not ordered? Is the government trying to protect the corrupt? Everyone knows no work can be done in BDA without paying bribe,” he added.

 According to him, will get `2 lakh crore if it regularises the illegal BDA layouts.

 “Many real estate agents are entering into politics and want to contest elections.

 This is a big lobby and they can spend crores.

 It is a scary trend and we need to stop it,” he added.

 

 MUDA LAND IS EASY GRAB !

RTI exposes 4-storey apartment built on MUDA’s encroached land

 

Caption: RTI activist B.N. Nagendra

Mysore, Jan. 8- With the land value in city shooting to the skies, the land mafia continues to encroach upon vacant government lands through dubious means. Despite the land-grabbers encroaching upon the government lands and building multi-storey buildings upon them, the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) and Mysore City Corporation (MCC) authorities are sitting tongue-tied and hands tied, which has further emboldened the land grabbers who are hand in glove with some unscrupulous officials to create fake records.

It has come to light of late that fake documents were created for two MUDA sites in Chikkaharadanahalli (Aravindanagar) First Stage at Chamaraja Mohalla, on which a four-storey building with 12 apartments have been constructed and all of them are occupied now.

The alleged fraud came to light after an RTI activist B.N. Nagendra, resident of Yadavagiri in city, sought information about the building from the MUDA.

The two sites measuring 50×80 ft in Aravindanagar are close to Kuvempunagar. MUDA had formed the layout during 1988-89. At that time, Sites No. 700 and 701 in Chikkaharadanahalli First Stage were not allotted to anyone.

In reply to the Nagendra’s query under the RTI provisions, the MUDA Public Information Officer replied that MUDA had no records or documents to say that the said two sites were not allotted to anyone.

The sites were formed during 1988-89 and the building on it is eight years old. So, does it mean that the MUDA authorities were blind to the encroachment all these years? Or, is it that they are not aware that the sites belong to the MUDA? Or, does it imply that they are involved with the land-grabber?

The MUDA does not have records of allotment, possession certificate, sale deed, Khata-revenue letter or receipts for cash transactions made. However, the City Improvement Trust Board (CITB) ledger shows the names of Chikkathayamma, resident of No. 818, New Kantharaj Urs Road, Mysore, along with Mahadevamma, Lakshmi and N. Shivakumar, residents of No. 555 of the same address, written by hand. The ledger shows that the two sites were purchased for a mere sum of Rs. 39,366 on April 4, 1988; the Khata and revenue have been fixed based on this document alone. The building was constructed by getting the building plan approved in the names of Mahadevamma and Chikkathayamma. The four-storied building is named as Shashank Paradise.

The site and building was inspected this morning by MUDA Superintending Engineer Shivakumar, Zonal Officer of Zone-1 Bhaskar and other MUDA officials. The 12 families residing in the flats are now an anxious lot after realising that they have been cheated and they do not possess relevant documents for the flats they purchased.

Some of the residents of the building whom SOM spoke to said that they had purchased the apartments based on sale agreements and paid Rs. 25 to Rs. 35 lakhs in advance. They confessed that the low prices lured them to buy the apartments as the actual price in that area was much higher. Each apartment has a master-bedroom, another smaller room, a living room, puja room, kitchen and a toilet.

Meanwhile, MUDA Commissioner S. Palaiah told SOM that he will investigate the matter and take suitable action.

 

 

Muda Land Encroachment: Criminal Case Booked against Housing Society President

 

Mysore, Sept. 20- In view of the allegation of encroaching 27 guntas of MUDA land close to Vijayanagar 2nd Stage, the Vijayanagar Police have booked a case against the President of Sri Mahadeshwara House Construction Co-operative Society, R. Shankare Gowda.

A written complaint filed by MUDA Zone 4 Zonal Officer R. Rajashekhar yesterday, following which a case was registered by Sub-Inspector Kumar.

The land is a portion of the land under survey number 120 in Hinkal, measuring 3.25 acres. Out of this, 1.16 acres of land was acquired on June 20, 1974 under LAC 10. Remaining 2.09 acres was acquired by MUDA from one Puttathayamma through mutual agreement on Oct. 31, 1985.

A 1.14 acre land was given to the Karnataka Water Board where a road and park have been developed. The remaining area lies vacant, of which Shankare Gowda allegedly created fake documents to stake claim on 23 guntas of land in the name of the Housing Society.

RTI activist B.N. Nagendra had sought information about the said land under the Right to Information (RTI) Act which brought to light the alleged irregularity.

Response to MLA Vasu’s letter: Chamarajanagar MLA Vasu had written a letter to Urban Development Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake, urging him to probe the irregularities in sites allotment, suspecting the involvement of some MUDA officials.

The Minister directed the Urban Development Department Secretary to probe the matter, who in turn asked the MUDA Commissioner to submit a report regarding the allegations. A directive was issued to the DC too to probe the matter, following which a complaint was lodged against the Housing Society President.

 

Bid to usurp MUDA corner site using fake documents

 

With the real estate prices in city skyrocketing, efforts to usurp sites and government land by hook or by crook are on too, despite several precautionary measures taken up by the MUDA.

Here is an incident of a person trying to acquire a corner site in Jayalakshmipuram, measuring 110×120 ft, by not paying a single paisa to MUDA but by merely paying Rs. 27,540 in an auction. The matter came to light when a citizen named B.N. Nagendra applied for information under the Right To Information (RTI) Act. It is said that he took interest in digging out information about the site after an acquaintance of his disclosed about the fraudulent deal.

Thanks to the efforts of MUDA Secretary Basavaraju who made meticulous investigations of the documents, the MUDA property worth several crores was saved from being usurped.

The site is in Jayalakshmipuram, which was formed about 40 years ago. It is a corner site off the road leading to The Green Hotel on Hunsur road. The site bears the number 23/A, having site number 23 towards the east, another site on the north and roads on the western and southern sides.

The fraud was committed by Raju, 60, a resident of Paduvarahalli 2nd Main, Door No. 54. He is said to have forged the signature of MUDA Zone 4 Special Tahasildar Devaraj and also used a duplicate rubber stamp for the fake documents.

The truth is that no auction was held for site no. 23/A. However, the accused Raju is said to have created fake documents that claimed that he had purchased the site in an auction for Rs. 27,540 on Jan. 3, 1979. A title-deed for the site was prepared at Zone 4 office under Form-2 (5) in Kannada dated Jan.2, 2013.

The site, for which fake documents were prepared in January, was registered three months later — that is on Mar. 22, 2013, at 4.30 pm, at the Sub-Registrar’s office in MUDA. It is said that the letter written by Special Tahasildar Devaraj to the Sub-Registrar to get the site registered was also forged.

Soon after the fraudulent deal came to the fore, MUDA Secretary Basavaraju placed a signboard at the site four days ago, stating that the land belonged to the MUDA. A complaint was lodged at the Lakshmipuram Police Station yesterday.

It is surprising that the title-deed for the site was prepared despite any auction conducted by the MUDA, no application submitted, no notes written by the officials concerned and no entry made about cash payment. The Police have launched a hunt for the accused who is at large.

 

MUDA employees booked for forgery, cheating

 

Mysore Urban Development Authorities (MUDA) have filed a police complaint against one P Nagaraj son of Puttaswamygowda and two employees of MUDA staff who supported the accused in creating fake documents at Lakshmipuram police station.

MUDA commissioner C G Betsurmath said a site in Gokulam III stage was allotted to one M K Ranganayaki in 1973 through auction and she had obtained title deed in 2002. But in the meantime, the accused Nagaraj has created fake documents about the site and made the authorities believe that he had purchased the said land in 1979 in an auction. Later he has taken title deed for it and then sold it to another party.

But the crime has come to light after the actual owner approached the authorities only recently. When the documents were verified, MUDA authorities found that site number has been forged from 37 to 73.

The commissioner said the title deed of the said site obtained by Nagaraj has been cancelled and we are investigating on this score.

Krishnaraja subdivision ACP A N Prakashgowd said MUDA has given against three persons and we are investigating it.

 

Fraudster sells government land, dupes MUDA

 

The Mysore City Corporation almost lost a huge site because of the negligence of the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) before the fraud was discovered in the nick of time.

The accused Krishna had forged documents of 1.13 acres in Survey No 505 in Kesare village and sold it to one Parveez who started constructing a building when it was stopped by MCC officials. The accused had even got an NoC to sell the land from MUDA, which did not bother to find out the real owner. 

Krishna is said to be a relative of the man to whom the land originally belonged before it was acquired by the erstwhile City Improvement Trust Board (CITB) for civic purposes about 58 years ago.

Finding the land vacant for many decades, the accused created fake documents and tried to sell it.

Sources in the MCC said that after obtaining information through RTI about the land, Krishna, along with his relative Chennaiah, obtained an NoC from MUDA and got the Khata made for the land from the taluk office by producing fake documents.

The property was registered in Krishna’s name in 2009.

Krishna then sold the illegal property to Parveez in 2011-12. After realising that he had been cheated, Parveez filed a suit in court, getting a permanent injunction restraining the defendant from interfering with his peaceful possession of the property. 

Revenue Assistant Commissioner R Lokanath said that when he inspected the place, he found that Parveez had occupied the land and even fenced the property that belonged to the Corporation. Upon questioning, he produced the clearances obtained from MUDA, Taluk office and even the court.

After being alerted, MCC officials registered a land grab-cum-cheating complaint against Krishna and Parveez. They have even approached court and the case is pending.

 

THE CLOUT OF LAND MAFIA IN INDIA -the governments daring to by-pass judiciary

An appeal ( PIL ) to the honourable supreme court of India

 

The recent attempts by government of India & other state governments to legalise land grabbings by enacting new land laws in the name of public welfare is farce . while crores of people are without shelter & are living on streets , people in slums , tribal lands are struggling for land rights since decades the governments were mum & deaf. Now , as the rulers themselves & their cronies have built illegal constructions running into crores they are shedding crocodile tears in the name of public welfare. In india, various state governments have enacted ” town municipal / city corporation laws & building laws” , to ensure orderly growth of cities & towns , to ensure the safety of buildings & it’s occupants , to ensure the safety of pedestrians & road users.

 

Numerous educated people , ruling elite – ministers , police , government officials , M.Ps , M.L.As , etc knowing fully well about the laws have illegally built bungalows , commercial complexes , throwing to wind all laws. In their greed they have shown utter contempt towards law. They have encroached dried –up lakes , rivulets , rain flow paths , drainages , foot paths , civic amenity sites. In their building there are violations of- lack of fire safety exits , lack of parking space , encroachment of foot paths , conservancy line , drainages , etc.

 

There is wide spread corruption in the corporation / municipal authorities. For a price officials have converted  CA sites to commercial purposes , authorised deviations / encroachments of public

lands like foot paths , drainages , parking space , set-off , etc. The corporation officials themselves are violating city master plans. Even before authorising the conversions & encroachments of lands , the

corporation officials are not making alternate arrangements. By all these corrupt deeds many of the corporation officilas have become millionaires . however more & more road accidents are taking place , building collapses & fire tragedies are occurring , during heavy rainfalls water is getting  clogged – ALL THESE RESULTING IN LOSS OF HUMAN LIVE & PROPERTIES. In recent days numerous murders have taken place over the real estate issues . THE CRIMINAL LAND GRABBERS MADE DEATH THREATS & FORCED THE PIL APPLICANT IN THE KARNATAKA HIGH COURT ABOUT LAND GRABBINGS IN KORAMANGALA LAYOUT BANGALORE. The government of karnataka instead of protecting the PIL applicant & upholding the law has taken sides with the land grabbers.

 

 

The state governments of karnataka & delhi has got M.L.As & officials who have themselves violated building laws & grabbed govt lands. Now , the two govts are contemplating to bring in laws regularising these land grabbing crimes for a pittance as penalty. All to by-pass judiciary. The governments are least bothered about the lives of poor & only too caring towards the land grabbing criminals.  The same governments have not yet given land rights to poor slum dwellers / dalits , land rights to tribals living in forest since centuries , land rights to poor agricultural labourers, where as it is full of concern towards rich & mighty land grabbers – criminals.  Bottom line – whatever be the magnitude of crime if you are rich & mighty law will be bended to suit you , by bad luck if you are a poor folk you are bound to suffer being on the right side of law also.  Hereby , e-voice  urges requests the honourable supreme court of india , to register this as a PIL , to provide protection to the PIL applicant in bangalore & to take appropriate actions against the GOK & GOD nipping at bud their illegal motives to regularise land grabbings.

 

Instead  of  answering  our  RTI  questions , the  officials  are  giving  half  truths , vague answers  to our questions , some of the serious questions they are not answering at all.  Even  Mr. P. Manivannan past deputy commissioner of Mysore District & Chairman of MUDA , failed to uphold justice . He threatened me for asking truth , but he didn’t answer the  RTI questions. Through media management he has cultivated a clean  public image of demolishing man of illegal structures , whereas during his time only some illegal structures were raised.

 

Due to Criminal nexus of  Some MUDA officials – Politicians – Police , these  illegal land grabbings are happening , the honest  among MUDA , POLICE  & Politicians must raise to the occasion . They must  save government land , first of all ask MUDA  Chairman / commissioner  to answer the above RTI  Questionnaire publicly.

 

 

Hereby , e-voice urges the  concerned authorities  , to answer the following questionnaire about BMIC project by NICE

Hereby ,e-voice  appeals to honourable supreme court of India , to annul the bid process of government of Karnataka with respect to illegally occupied government lands &  to annul this ordinance of government of Karnataka which seeks to legalize land crimes. Jai hind . vande mataram.

The Art of Living Illegally

 

THE ‘GURU of joy’ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has been found guilty of encroaching more than five acres of government land worth Rs 50 crore in Karnataka. The land meant to be distributed to the poor and landless has been illegally acquired by Sri Sri, who has constructed an Art of Living meditation centre on it, violating the law.

 

Even though the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) wanted to fine ‘Guruji’ and had asked for the demolition of the building, a timely intervention by former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa has saved the Art of Living Foundation from facing legal action.

According to documents obtained by TEHELKA, MUDA had acquired 100 acres at Alanahalli village near Mysore in 1985, ’92 and ’97 for the development of residential colonies for 1.5 lakh landless poor. Out of the 100 acres notified by MUDA, 70 were developed and the rest was denotified and restored to the original owners.

“The land that Sri Sri acquired was left as a buffer zone and not developed as a residential layout as it allowed for the free flow of water from Chamundi Hills to Alanahalli tank. It was supposed to be converted into a botanical park,” says M Lakshmana of the Association of Concerned and Informed Citizens of Mysore.

However, in 2002, the land was acquired by the Art of Living through a proxy by the name of R Raghu, even when the land was in the possession of MUDA. And a building was constructed for conducting yoga and meditation classes.

Taking note of this, on 20 December last year, the then Deputy Commissioner of Mysore Harsh Gupta wrote to MUDA directing it to reclaim the government land from the Art of Living, and sought a response within seven days. Following the order, MUDA wrote to the tehsildar instructing him to serve a notice to Art of Living. The tehsildar’s office did so on 4 January, stating that the building constructed at Alanahalli was illegal and slapped a fine of Rs 1,000 on the organisation as per the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964.

Apart from this penalty, Art of Living was given two days time to demolish the building, failing which the department would clear the encroachment and slap an additional fine of Rs 25 per day.

Shunted out of the deputy commissioner’s post, Gupta, now assistant director of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, says, “During my tenure, a survey was being conducted of the 1,500 acres of government land. And wherever discrepancies were found, notices and orders were issued. During that survey, we found out that the Art of Living had encroached upon five acres of government land.”

Gupta’s orders were not carried out. The same day, a letter from the chief minister’s office signed by Principal Secretary ISN Prasad prevented the deputy commissioner and the taluka administration from carrying out its duties.

The letter instructed the district and taluka administration against demolishing the Art of Living building on survey No. 41/F block (P6) in Alanahalli, saying, “The chief minister will take a decision on it.” However, Yeddyurappa did not bother to take any decision and the Art of Living continued construction activities on the land.

“It was done to stop the precipitate action,” says Prasad. An Art of Living delegation had met Yeddyurappa and he had asked the district administration to refrain from action till a further decision is taken.

“That didn’t happen due to various reasons. But the current Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda will call a meeting with all the local officials,” says Prasad.

Responding to the claims, Karthik Krishna of the Art of Living’s bureau of communication says, “Since 2003, we have been working to denotify this land that was falsely notified to extract a bribe, which we fought tooth and nail and were also slapped with a fine.”

The Art of Living has not encroached on any land, he says. The 5-acre plot was purchased by R Raghu from Gangu Belli Belliappa on 25 November 2002. Since then, the premises have been utilised with the permission of the landlord for conducting yoga and meditation classes, says Krishna.

 

“This is not the first time a case of land-grab has been brought against the Art of Living,” says Lakshmana. In Mandya district, the organisation has been accused of grabbing 20 acres. And a 2006 report on government land encroachments in the state had also found discrepancies in its Bengaluru ashram. In Mysore, apart from the five acres of government land, the Art of Living has encroached around seven acres worth Rs 70 crore near the tourist spot of Chamundi Hills.

V Balasubramaniam, former chairman of Land Task Force, says the AT Ramaswamy Committee report had found that the organisation had encroached upon 6.35 acres of government land in Agara village in Kengeri, Bengaluru. The committee claimed that the land encroached by the Art of Living was worth more than Rs 8 crore.

Lakshmana has filed a criminal complaint against Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Yeddyurappa. “I have also lodged a complaint with the state Human Rights Commission, asking how a high-flying organisation like the Art of Living could obtain a site when poor and landless people are waiting for the past 30 years,” says Lakshmana.

 

YET ANOTHER MUDA SITE GRABBED 

Mysuru, Mar. 26- In yet another case of land grabbing that has now come to light, a 50’x80’ site (No. 5491) in Vijayanagar second stage, adjoining site No. 5490, which was allegedly grabbed by unscrupulous persons using forged documents (reported in SOM on 24.3.2015), too has been reportedly grabbed.

One B. Thimmappa, a resident of 9th main, Saraswathipuram, is alleged to have grabbed site No. 5491 measuring 50’x80’ located near the water tank in Vijayanagar second stage, using forged documents.

The hand of unscrupulous MUDA employees is suspected in this case too.

MUDA Commissioner S. Palaiah, after coming to know of the fraud, has annulled the allotment letter, Sale Deed and other documents pertaining to the site.

B. Thimmappa is said to have taken the site into possession under the Asha Mandira Scheme on 17.2.2003, with unscrupulous MUDA employees allegedly joining hands with him in creating fake documents. Thimmappa later sold the site to K. Kantharaj and S. Vinutha on 13.5.2010, with the khata transfer too done.

Later, Kantharaj and Vinutha sold the site to P. Gopal Rao, M. Ravishankar and Prabhushankar.

Thereafter, the buyers Gopal Rao, Ravishankar and Prabhushankar sold the site to one D. Diwakar, along with khata transfer. Despite all these transactions taking place, the unscrupulous MUDA employees and the fraudsters have taken enough care to ensure that the cheating does not come to light.

However, the fraud came to light when the documents came under thorough scrutiny of MUDA Commissioner.

With the grabbing coming to light, the authorities have erected a shed in a portion of the site.

The grabbing of a site adjacent to another allegedly grabbed site on which a building has come up, has caused concern amongst the public, who are now left wondering on how to distinguish between genuine and fake documents. The MUDA officials are coming across such site grabbing cases, even as they dig deeper into the mess.

Even as MUDA authorities are unearthing site grabbing case, MUDA Commissioner S. Palaiah has appealed the buyers to thoroughly check the documents with MUDA for authenticity.

Meanwhile, Pooja Prabhakar, who claims to be the owner of site No. 5490 in Vijayanagar second stage, which was found to have been grabbed using forged documents, during a scrutiny on Mar. 10, is reportedly all set to drag the MUDA to the Court over the issue.

Pooja Prabhakar is said to have cited a case where in a person is said to have allegedly built an unauthorised commercial structure on an illegally purchased site and thus earning a huge sum of money after letting out the structure on rent/lease.


Illogical land laws fostering mafia, says High Court judge

 

 

Acting Chief Justice of High Court of Karnataka, Justice K Sreedhar Rao on Saturday said lack of logic in several laws, including land reforms and acquisition laws, is encouraging land mafia, especially in urban centres. 

“The existing Land Acquisition Act is the greatest enemy of the common man. We have only encouraged land mafia through legislation,” he said, while addressing the National Consultation on “Urban Poor and the Law,” organised by National Law School of India University (NLSIU) here.

Justice Rao said laws related to land need an overhaul, to ensure owners of the land get a share of development. “The growth of real estate mafias and skyrocketing property prices hindered average income earners from purchasing property. By creating mega cities, we have done a great damage to the country,” he added.

Justice Rao said various governments have failed to develop district and taluk head quarters as a result of which we are not able to prevent migration to cities. “Bangalore has developed as a cancerous slum. The urban areas are not having the infrastructure or facilities to deal with this massive population inflow,” he said. The judge also pointed out that the zoning laws often allow arbitrary classifications without taking into account the real situations on ground.

P K Mohanty, Additional Secretary, Union Ministry of Housing and Poverty Alleviation, said the proposed law for property rights for urban poor, to ensure spaces for street vendors, was under consideration and it would be soon placed before the Parliament.

A major issue that needs to be addressed is residency rights of urban poor in the context of vulnerabilities that they face. Though several governmental programmes, specially JNNURM were designed for this purpose, there was a lack of sufficient response from the States to avail the funds and use them in time, he said.

 

BMTF proposes, government disposes

 

Siddaiah was brought back to BBMP despite request for his suspension for his role in DLF case

Senior IAS officer H. Siddaiah, who returned as Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner for a second stint, has come under the scanner of the Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force (BMTF) as a ‘suspect officer’ for his alleged role in the DLF case.

The BMTF, probing the DLF scam that involved illegal widening of a road to facilitate an increase in the floor area ratio (FAR) of an apartment complex, had named Mr. Siddaiah, his predecessor Bharat Lal Meena, besides the former Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) Commissioner Pradeep Singh Kharola among the three IAS officers whose role had surfaced during its investigation “based on oral and documentary evidence”.

BMTF letter

In a letter to Chief Secretary S.V. Ranganath, dated November 29, 2012, the BMTF had sought to place under suspension these three officials, besides 23 others of the BDA and BBMP, to facilitate fair probe.

However, the government chose to ignore the BMTF’s recommendation and brought Mr. Siddaiah back to the BBMP from the Higher Education Department where he was serving as Principal Secretary, thus replacing Commissioner Rajneesh Goel.

The report also names several senior officials of the BBMP and the BDA as “suspect officials” for having allegedly colluded to allow the DLF to up the FAR for its projects, violating BBMP bylaws and BDA’s master plan.

Charge against Shettar

Meanwhile, RTI activist Dinesh Kallahalli accused Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar of trying to hush up the matter by bringing back the same “suspect” officials. He plans to seekGovernor H.R. Bhardwaj’s intervention in the matter as the Chief Minister was involved.

Speaking at a press conference here on Saturday, Mr. Kallahalli said Tirakana Goudar, Town Planning Member (TPM) in the BDA, who was reinstated to his post while he was out on bail, was also being favoured by the Chief Minister.

DLF violations

The BMTF has arrested Mr. Goudar, who was charged with helping DLF Southern Homes legalise construction beyond what was permitted on a civic amenity (CA) site. He was accused of approving the widening of the Hulimavu-Begur Road to legalise DLF Southern Homes illegal construction.

“DLF constructed 1,962 flats instead of the 440 for which they had taken permission. We are not even able to get documents under the Right to Information Act. We want the Governor to intervene,” Mr. Kallahalli said.

 

‘CCTV cameras in BDA are covered with cow dung’

 

The government will cancel alternative land and sites allotted by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) in “prestigious extensions” in lieu of private land acquired for the development of Sir. M. Visvesvaraya, Kempe Gowda, Jnanabharathi and Banashankari extensions.

Making an announcement in this regard in the Legislative Assembly, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah promised to order a probe into alleged violation of norms and irregularities committed by BDA and punish the guilty.

Responding to a calling attention notice moved by S.T. Somashekar, K.N. Rajanna and K. Shadakshari of the Congress, Mr. Siddaramaiah admitted that there were illegalities and irregularities in allocation of sites and land for the land acquired in BDA.

The government would order a probe into the scam and action would be initiated against those involved in it. He would direct the senior officials to inquire into the misuse of incentive scheme of allotting land for land losers. Irregularities in revenue land scam would also be probed and all allotments made under this category would be cancelled forthwith, Mr. Siddaramaiah said.

Detailing the allotment made by BDA since 2008, Mr. Siddaramaiah said that 3,314 sites had been allotted under the categories of alternative sites, incentive schemes, land to land and revenue sites. “The government will not spare anybody who has misused the schemes in connivance with the officials”, he said.

Initiating the debate, Mr. Somashekar alleged that BDA had flouted norms while allotting sites and land for acquisition of land without notification.

“BDA officials used the scheme to their convenience, which are meant for helping the poor farmers and land owners”, he lamented.

Accusing BDA of generously giving sites and land to GPA holders in posh localities, Mr. Rajanna, alleged that the authority had not followed guidelines and officials allotted sites and land at their whims and fancies. “The close circuit cameras installed in BDA are being covered with cow dung to gloss the murky dealings. It is scam worth Rs. 1,000 crore and needs comprehensive investigation”, he said.

Violation of order

Pointing at the violation of Mr. Siddaramaiah’s order, Mr. Rajanna said that, through the Chief Minister issued order against allotting sites and land under the category on July 11, BDA allotted six sites on the same evening and issued possession certificates on July 13. This clearly exhibits the uncanny knack of BDA officials to circumvent the directions of the Chief Minister and shows that BDA was above government, he observed.

 

Reclaim 308 G category sites, says Padmaraj panel

 

BANGALORE: In a big blow to allottees of G category sites, the Justice B Padmaraj Committee recommended to the state government it cancel and reclaim 308 sites allotted under the chief minister’s discretionary quota. These sites in prime localities were allotted between 2004 and 2011.

Three beneficiaries, who have already constructed houses, have been asked to cough up twice the current market price of the sites if they want to retain them.

 

The panel has reserved its decision on two sites allotted to former CM DV Sadananda Gowda and BJP MLA DN Jeevaraj as their cases are pending before the Supreme Court.

In all, 313 sites/plots were allotted under G category of BDA rules by previous CMs N Dharam SinghHD Kumaraswamy and BS Yeddyurappa. The beneficiaries included a present minister, MPs, MLAs, MLCs, political party leaders, bureaucrats, police officers, doctors, journalists and even personal assistants, cooks, drivers and peons of powerful politicians.

In Mysore on Saturday, chief minister Siddaramaiah said he would study the report and take necessary action.

Based on a petition filed in 2010 by advocate Vasudev Murthy, the Karnataka High Court directed the state government to form a committee to look into the matter and submit a report. Accordingly, the government constituted the Justice B Padmaraj Committee. By then, many allottees who bagged these prime sites worth crores of rupees had sold their plots in the open market for 10 times that amount.

Though the panel submitted its report on August 26, 2013, the government has dithered taking action. Though the issue was part of the agenda in cabinet meetings, it was kept aside reportedly under pressure from the beneficiaries.

There are even allegations of beneficiaries influencing chief minister Siddaramaiah to bring an amendment to the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) Act, 1976 so that they can hold on to their sites.

According to BDA rules, a person who owns a site or a house in Bangalore is not eligible for allotment under the G category. But, the majority of beneficiaries owned a site or house in the city. The committee report has pointed out that persons who gave a false declaration on this count should forfeit their sites.

Some prominent allottees

Visveshwar Anantha Hegde Kageri (BJP)

Murugesh R Nirani (BJP)

MP Renukacharya (BJP)

Prahalad Joshi (BJP)

R Roshan Baig (Cong)

Ashoka (BJP)

Sharan Prakash Patil (Cong)

Shakuntala Shetty (BJP)

MT Krishnappa (JDS)

M Srinivas (JDS)

G category site

Rule 5 of BDA (Allotment of Sites) Rules, 1984, lays out various categories under which it can dispose of stray sites. There are seven categories: A (via auction), B (for sportspersons), C (for those who excel in arts, science, literature, education, medicine and public administration), D (for ex-servicemen); F (for dependents of government servants who die in the line of duty) and G (for persons in public life as may be directed by the government). While A, B C, D, E & F category sites are allotted on the recommendation of a BA sub-committee, G category site allotments are the prerogative and discretion of the chief minister.

Who is eligible

* Domiciled in Karnataka for not less than 10 years

 

* Neither allottee nor family should own a site or house in Bangalore metropolitan area

* Allottee or family should not have been allotted a site or house by the BDA, or any other authority within Bangalore metropolitan area. Allottee has to submit affidavit to this effect

Ex-MUDA chairmen feel heat over site scam

 

Former chairmen of Mandya Urban Development Authority (MUDA) are in a state of panic as the Urban Development Department has sent a proposal to the Home Department seeking  a CBI probe into illegal financial transactions and distribution of sites.

Ten days ago, the Urban Development Department had sent a letter to the Home Department seeking it to hand over the investigation of the irregularities in MUDA and Ramanagaram-Channapatana Urban Development Authority to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The Police Department has already submitted the preliminary report to the court.

As money was invested in foreign banks, huge irregularities had taken place in the site allotment.

Urban Development Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake had provided details of the irregularities to the Home Ministry and requested them to hand over the case to the CBI.

In 1998, the then irrigation minister K N Nagegowda had closed a lake (432 acres, 10 guntas) belonging to the department and handed over 232 acres and 10 guntas to MUDA and 200 acres to the Housing Board for construction of houses for the poor and middle classes.

The then MUDA chairman P M Somashekar took a loan of `5 crore from State Bank of Mysore, Mandya branch, and through a contractor from Andhra Pradesh developed Vivekananda Nagar layout with 2,600 sites in the 232 acres. 

Later, when Asadulla Khan was MUDA chairman, 2,200 sites were distributed through lots.

When Hansiyabanu was MUDA chairman, under the ‘Nimma Aayke’ scheme, 200 sites were distributed.

During the BJP government, MUDA chairman Vidya Nagendra had distributed 107 sites even be fore the final date for the submission of applications.

This illegal distribution of sites was also discussed at the Vidhana Soudha.

Advocate T S Satyananda had lodged a case against three members of the Legislative Assembly and several others in the Mandya Lokayukta Special Court for illegal distribution of sites. The government had directed the authorities to withhold the distribution.

Recently, financial irregularities of Rs 5 crore in MUDA and Rs 16.90 crore by the Ramanagaram-Channapatna Urban Development Authority have come to light.

The local police investigated the case and filed a chargesheet.

The minister said: “We have sent a proposal to hand over the case to the CBI. In a few days, with the CM’s approval, the case will be handed over.”

 

 

Probe panel yet to scratch surface of MUDA ‘irregularities’

 

It’s been a month since a high-level committee was formed to probe allegations of irregularities in land acquired by Mangalore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) for Chelyar Layout. It is operational only on paper.

The grandiose plan of MUDA to form a layout and distribute sites to applicants at Chelyar and Madya villages near Surathkal comes at a cost: Rs. 75,000 monthly outgo to service a Rs. 12 crore loan taken for it.

In an order sent by the Urban Development Department, on August 5, a committee was to deliver a report on the legality of the project within 15 days. The committee is headed by Regional Commissioner (Mysore) M.V. Jayanthi, with Deputy Commissioner N. Prakash and Deputy Director of Land Records B.K. Kusumadhara as members.

After allegations that the price paid for the land in 2008 was too high and favourable to private players, Minister for Urban Development Vinay Kumar Sorake promised a probe in June.

The project envisaged buying 200 acres of private land at an agreed rate of Rs. 25,500 a cent. After the approval of the erstwhile BJP-led government, nearly 73 acres of land had been bought.

‘Unscientific project’

While most MUDA officials who talked to The Hindu claimed to have been transferred to the Authority only after site formation, one senior official said: “The entire project was approved by the State government. And so, in this respect, the papers are clean. However, there is a need to ask why the ambitious layout was formed when the Authority was reeling under debt.” Already burdened with a Rs. 4 crore loan, in 2008, MUDA took an additional Rs. 12 crore.

Many officials view the inquiry as a political witch-hunt: aimed at the now-out-of-power party, rather than the Authority itself.

‘Report soon’

With not one meeting called so far, Mr. Kusumadhara said there was little clarity on the scope of inquiry.

However, the Deputy Commissioner said, “We only have to clear the suspicions. We will collect the required documents, and present it before the Regional Commissioner during her visit on September 12.”

Probe into bogus bill scam will cover larger picture: BMTF

 

Bangalore: Attempting to clear the air on speculations regarding the alleged multi-crore bogus bill scam in three assembly constituencies, Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force (BMTF) inspector general of police RP Sharma said the investigation will not be restricted to Rajarajeshwarinagar, Gandhinagar and Malleswaram constituencies. The probe will also include other areas, he clarified.

Speaking at the BBMP head office on Wednesday, Sharma said even though the FIR filed on November 4 by the additional commissioner (administration) pertains to only three constituencies, sleuths will look into other areas if necessary. “The C(TVCC) had mentioned only three constituencies in its report pertaining to irregularities from 2008 to 2011. The FIR was only an instrument to take up investigation, but it does not restrict us from taking up the investigation in other areas,” he said.

 

Town planners’ help to be sought

He said even though there is a delay in filing a case, BMTF is trying to clear all hurdles and expose those involved in the scam. The BMTF has seized 153 files pertaining to the irregularities from the three constituencies. Eleven persons and TVCC officials were interrogated and 153 files verified by sleuths in 20 days, Sharma said.

Reacting to a question raised on BMTF’s ability to investigate financial crimes and demand to hand over the probe to the Lokayukta, Sharma said the sleuths would seek help from town planners. Currently, there are only two town planners of the 15 sanctioned posts. The investigation team will also include a superintendent of police, deputy superintendent of police (who will join the team shortly), two inspectors, four sub-inspectors and 15 head constables. A fair and impartial investigation would be conducted by the investigation team, he assured.

“We can ascertain the quantum of money that is involved in the scam only after the investigation,” Sharma said.

BBMP commissioner Siddaiah entrusted the BMTF to carry out inquiry into the `1,539 crore scam after it was unearthed by the TVCC. The BMTF is an autonomous agency under the state government. It is alleged that bills were sanctioned even though works were not completed in the three assembly constituencies. The irregularities took place during the administrative period when BBMP remained without people’s representation. With no corporators, MLAs looked after project works in the wards. The elections to BBMP were held in 2010 after a gap of three years.

Last Friday, leaders of the ruling and opposition parties and civic officials participated in a two-hour meeting called by BBMP mayor R Shardamma to discuss the probe. It was decided to set up a house committee, consisting of five ruling party corporators, two from the opposition and two officials, to investigate the scam, before BMTF took up the case. The move was seen as a delaying tactic by the ruling party in the BBMP council.RK Sharma, IGP, Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force, after a press conference at Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike headquarters on Wednesday.

 

Bangalore: BMTF Registers FIR Against Suresh Kumar, Krishnaiah Setty

 

The Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force has registered an FIR against Minister for Urban Development Suresh Kumar, former Housing Minister M Krishnaiah Setty and senior IAS officer V P Baligar for allegedly returning four acres 20 guntas of land, which was acquired by the government under the Karnataka Urban Land Ceiling Act to construct houses for the slum dwellers at Laggere, to the original owner.

The case was lodged based on a complaint by Dinesh Kallalli, a social worker, who stated that Kumar, in his capacity as Urban Development Minister, granted permission to return the land to the original owner, while then Housing Minister Krishnaiah Setty halted the process of constructing houses for the urban poor.

The BMTF has registered a case against the trio under Sections 13 (1) and 13 (2) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 and Section 157 of the CrPC on Saturday. Kallalli told Deccan Herald that in 1982, the government acquired 4.2 acres of excess land in survey number 19/2, which belonged to K Gopinath to build houses for the financially weaker and downtrodden people. In 2003, the Karnataka Slum Development Board (KSDB) started the process of constructing houses.

When the process reached the stage of inviting tenders, the Yeddyurappa government took the decision to return the land to the original owner.

It is learnt that under the Karnataka Urban Land Ceiling Act, no one can hold more than 59 acres of land and the excess land should be confiscated. Gopinath had reportedly possessed 4.2 acres in excess, which the government took it in its custody in 1982. Once the land is in government’s custody, it cannot be returned to its original owner, although the government has the power to allot it to other individuals.

Kallalli alleged that the decision was taken to help Gopinath, who is the brother of senior RSS functionary K Narahari. He claimed that the KSDB had objected to the decision, reminding that it was not only illegal, but would also affect the weaker sections of the society. The board also said that the tender process was almost over.

However, the government set aside the objections of the KSDB and the tender process to construct houses. When contacted, Kumar said he had no information about the case since he was away in Bellary. He said he would find out once he returned to Bangalore.

A few months ago, Kumar had tendered his resignation after it was alleged that his family was the beneficiary of a ‘G’ category site. However, the chief minister refused to accept the resignation as no substance was found in the allegation.

Setty, who was in jail over a land denotification case, is out on bail. Baligar is the Managing Director of Housing Urban Development Company (HUDCO) in New Delhi.

When contacted Dr R P Sharma, Additional Director General of Police, BMTF was not available for comments.

Muda Land Encroachment: Criminal Case Booked against Housing Society President

 

Mysore, Sept. 20- In view of the allegation of encroaching 27 guntas of MUDA land close to Vijayanagar 2nd Stage, the Vijayanagar Police have booked a case against the President of Sri Mahadeshwara House Construction Co-operative Society, R. Shankare Gowda.

A written complaint filed by MUDA Zone 4 Zonal Officer R. Rajashekhar yesterday, following which a case was registered by Sub-Inspector Kumar.

The land is a portion of the land under survey number 120 in Hinkal, measuring 3.25 acres. Out of this, 1.16 acres of land was acquired on June 20, 1974 under LAC 10. Remaining 2.09 acres was acquired by MUDA from one Puttathayamma through mutual agreement on Oct. 31, 1985.

A 1.14 acre land was given to the Karnataka Water Board where a road and park have been developed. The remaining area lies vacant, of which Shankare Gowda allegedly created fake documents to stake claim on 23 guntas of land in the name of the Housing Society.

RTI activist B.N. Nagendra had sought information about the said land under the Right to Information (RTI) Act which brought to light the alleged irregularity.

Response to MLA Vasu’s letter: Chamarajanagar MLA Vasu had written a letter to Urban Development Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake, urging him to probe the irregularities in sites allotment, suspecting the involvement of some MUDA officials.

The Minister directed the Urban Development Department Secretary to probe the matter, who in turn asked the MUDA Commissioner to submit a report regarding the allegations. A directive was issued to the DC too to probe the matter, following which a complaint was lodged against the Housing Society President.

 

d to usurp MUDA corner site using fake documents

 

With the real estate prices in city skyrocketing, efforts to usurp sites and government land by hook or by crook are on too, despite several precautionary measures taken up by the MUDA.

Here is an incident of a person trying to acquire a corner site in Jayalakshmipuram, measuring 110×120 ft, by not paying a single paisa to MUDA but by merely paying Rs. 27,540 in an auction. The matter came to light when a citizen named B.N. Nagendra applied for information under the Right To Information (RTI) Act. It is said that he took interest in digging out information about the site after an acquaintance of his disclosed about the fraudulent deal.

Thanks to the efforts of MUDA Secretary Basavaraju who made meticulous investigations of the documents, the MUDA property worth several crores was saved from being usurped.

The site is in Jayalakshmipuram, which was formed about 40 years ago. It is a corner site off the road leading to The Green Hotel on Hunsur road. The site bears the number 23/A, having site number 23 towards the east, another site on the north and roads on the western and southern sides.

The fraud was committed by Raju, 60, a resident of Paduvarahalli 2nd Main, Door No. 54. He is said to have forged the signature of MUDA Zone 4 Special Tahasildar Devaraj and also used a duplicate rubber stamp for the fake documents.

The truth is that no auction was held for site no. 23/A. However, the accused Raju is said to have created fake documents that claimed that he had purchased the site in an auction for Rs. 27,540 on Jan. 3, 1979. A title-deed for the site was prepared at Zone 4 office under Form-2 (5) in Kannada dated Jan.2, 2013.

The site, for which fake documents were prepared in January, was registered three months later — that is on Mar. 22, 2013, at 4.30 pm, at the Sub-Registrar’s office in MUDA. It is said that the letter written by Special Tahasildar Devaraj to the Sub-Registrar to get the site registered was also forged.

Soon after the fraudulent deal came to the fore, MUDA Secretary Basavaraju placed a signboard at the site four days ago, stating that the land belonged to the MUDA. A complaint was lodged at the Lakshmipuram Police Station yesterday.

It is surprising that the title-deed for the site was prepared despite any auction conducted by the MUDA, no application submitted, no notes written by the officials concerned and no entry made about cash payment. The Police have launched a hunt for the accused who is at large.

 CID to probe Rs 6,697 crore KIADB denotification scam

 

Lokayukta directs the agency to submit a report within July 30

Irregularities to the tune of Rs 6,697 crore in land acquisition and compensation by the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) between 2006 and 2011 – the span of the BJP government – will be investigated by the CID. The land involved is a whopping 26,674 acres.

A petitioner, Jayakumar Hiremath, filed a complaint with the Lokayukta last August following a directive from the Karnataka High Court. He had sought a CBI probe into the issue.

“The matter is now referred for a CID probe,” Hiremath told Bangalore Mirror. “I welcome this. As the deadline is set now, it has set the ball rolling into the probe.”

In an order dated 29 May 2014, A C Vidhyadhar, additional registrar of enquiries (ARE), Karnataka Lokayukta, has referred it to the CID with a July 30 deadline to submit a report on the case. ”Honourable Lokayukta has taken up the matter for investigation and requisitioned your services under section 15 (3) of Karnataka Lokayukta Act for a further investigation and report.

In this context, I would like to bring to your notice that under sec 15 (3) of Karnataka Lokayukta Act, the Honourable Lokayukta and Upa Lokayukta can avail the services of any agency for the purpose of investigation. As the matter pertained to economic offences, the Honourable Lokayukta has felt it is necessary to utilize your services for investigation,” says the communication sent by the Lokayukta to the CID, a copy of which is with Bangalore Mirror.

 

Karnataka HC summons MD of Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board

 

BANGALORE: Strongly observing that KIADB (Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board) has failed to ensure the benefits of land acquisition reached the targeted groups, including farmers as envisaged in its schemes, the Karnataka high court has directed the managing director (MD) of the board to appear before court on Friday.

A division bench headed by Justice K L Manjunath gave an oral direction to this effect while hearing a writ appeal filed by two persons whose lands were acquired in 1996 for setting up a sugar factory at Kaliganahalli and Hattna villages of Bellur hobli, Nagamangala taluk in Mandya district.

The bench also noted that the board has not been able to justify the acquisition as despite lapse of many years as the projects do not start within the stipulated time and other allied conditions like providing jobs to land losers etc are not implemented.

Extension withdrawn

Meanwhile in a related development, a memo has been filed in court stating that two year extension granted in favour of M/s Prem Sugar and Chemicals Corporation Ltd for setting up 5,000 TCD sugar factory with 32 MW co-generation plant has been withdrawn on the ground that the company had misrepresented that there are no cases pending before court.

This order came to be issued after the division bench pulled up the authorities and even warned of contempt proceedings after it was stated that two year extension was granted to M/s Prem Sugar and Chemicals Corporation Limited during the pendency of proceedings before the court.

As per the terms of allotment of 86 acres of acquired land, M/s Prem Sugar and Chemicals Corporation Ltd should have operationalized its unit within 36 months from 1996, by 2000.

Though the company got this period extended through a court order and the Board twice on its own extended the deadline, the company has not even laid a foundation stone for its project despite passage of 16 years after allotment, the court had noted earlier.

 

CAG Finds Lapses in PWD, KIADB Works

 

The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India has come down heavily on the Public Works Department and the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) for causing losses worth crores of rupees to the exchequer. The KIADB alone caused losses to the tune of Rs.104 crore, it said.

The PWD had implemented road works in its Magadi sub-division in a fraudulent manner and the KIADB allotted land to three industrial units at Narasapura Industrial Area in violation of rules, it said.

The report was tabled in both houses of the state legislature on Wednesday. It pointed out serious lapses by the chief engineer, superintending engineer and executive engineer in implementing works worth Rs.250.62 crore in Magadi sub-division in Ramanagaram district during 2011-12.

“There was a total lack of monitoring and supervision by higher authorities during the course of execution of works although the SE/CE were required to regularly monitor and supervise these works. Quality control reports were not available for any of the works claimed to have been executed,” the CAG stated.

The Internal Finance Advisor and secretary also failed to correlate monthly expenditure statements received from subordinate officers with details of works in progress. “The CE allocated grants to the extent of Rs.212.13 crore without prioritising works according to prescribed procedures and did not submit any budget estimates to the government,” the report said, indicting the department officials.

Total grants of Rs.250 crore were allotted for the Magadi sub-division — 27 times the average grants released over the past three years. 

The grants were allotted irregularly by the Internal Financial Advisor and the CE, SE without obtaining a list of works. Fraudulent payments of Rs.1.70 crore were made preparing fake bills, it said.

The entire work was split into 1,311 small works with each estimate below Rs.20 lakh to avoid competitive bidding. In 189 cases, more than one estimate was prepared for the same work leading to fictitious estimates. Surprisingly, 891 of the 1,311 contracts were awarded to just 3 contractors without even collecting the EMD and performance security, it said.

Check measurements were done on a single day by the department officials in 25 to 85 works and bills were paid without obtaining quality control test reports.

It said surprise checks were not undertaken by superior officers.

The inspection team constituted by the department had observed irregularities and recommended recovery of the amount from the contractors as works were neither executed nor identifiable during physical verification.

KIADB Land Fiasco

The CAG report on Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board’s allotment of plots at Narasapura Industrial Area at a subsidised rate has exposed the loss of Rs.104 crore to the exchequer.

While the government had approved the allotment of undeveloped land, KIADB allotted 128 acres of well developed plots for three industrial units at a concessional rate, thus resulting in a loss of Rs.104 cr. KIADB had incurred an expenditure of Rs.1.10 cr for developing each acre of land.

 

Fresh panel to probe into irregularities in site allotment by Shimoga Urban Development Authority

 

The meeting of Shimoga Urban Development Authority (SUDA) convened here on Tuesday has decided to constitute a new panel to probe the alleged irregularities in the allotment of sites in Atal Bihari Vajpayee Layout.

It may be mentioned here that Deputy Commissioner Vipul Bansal, who is also in-charge President of SUDA, had formed an inquiry panel under retired Judge H.B. Ravindranath to probe the irregularities in site allotment.

The panel, in its report, had said that of the total 1,800 sites in the layout, 1,305 sites were allotted in violation of the law.

The committee had pointed out 22 different types of lapses in site allotment. Based on the report, Mr. Bansal had said that a complaint would be lodged with the police against the persons indicted in the report.

In the meeting, R.K. Siddaramanna, MLC, said that it was not possible to initiate legal action against erring persons on the basis of the report submitted by the probe panel.

He said that according to Section 9(2) of Karnataka Urban Development Authorities Act, only the president of an urban development authority should head the panel that probes irregularities.

The meeting has decided to form a fresh panel under Mr. Bansal.

The sub-registrar of Shimoga and commissioners of SUDA and Shimoga City Corporation would be the members of the panel.

Meanwhile, Kallur Megharaj, managing trustee of Shantaveri Gopala Gowda Samajawadi Adhyayana Kendra Trust, has demanded a CBI probe into the irregularities in site allotment by SUDA.

Earlier, Mr. Bansal had said that he would initiate action against the erring persons based on the report submitted by the panel headed by Mr. Ravindranath.

Speaking to presspersons here on Wednesday, Mr. Megharaj alleged that Mr. Bansal haddecided to go for a fresh probe yielding to political pressure.

Ambareesh Accused of Cornering 3 Sites

 

MANDYA: An individual is entitled only to one site from an urban development authority (UDA) in the state, but Housing Minister M H Ambareesh allegedly got three large ones.

Recently accused of violating rules to get a site from the Mandya Urban Development Authority, Ambareesh allegedly bent the rules to get sites in two other cities: Mysore and Bangalore. As an actor, Ambareesh rose to fame by frequently playing an angry, upright police officer who takes on a corrupt system, earning the epithet ‘Rebel Star’.

RTI activist K R Ravindra said Ambareesh had procured the sites by submitting false documents.  “The sites are meant for the public. The government should immediately take them back. Ambareesh should resign from his ministership on moral grounds,” he told Express. 

Why Govt Sites?

Sites sold by government-run bodies like BDA are priced way lower than the open market. Ambareesh allegedly got sites from the Mandya, Mysore, and Bangalore Urban Development Authorities. On January 16, 1986, Ambareesh got a 78X 50 ft site (No 1260) in G and H Block Layout, JCST, Kuvempunagar, Mysore.

For Mysore Urban Development Authority records, he gave his residential address as No 172, II Stage, J P Nagar, Bangalore. He paid `36,444 for the site.

Curiously, MUDA handed him the sale deed only on August 12, 2008, 22 years after he was allotted the site. In 1987, just a year after he got a site in Mysore, Ambareesh got another from the Bangalore Development Authority. When he responded to an advertisement offering plots in Sarakki II Stage, he was allotted, on July 28, 1987, a 120X80 ft site. He paid `93,639 for this one.

Woodlands Address

For BDA records, Ambareesh entered his residential address as 412, Woodlands Hotel, Sampangi Tank Road, Bangalore. How a hotel address was accepted by the BDA authorities is a mystery. On March 6, 1999, when Ambareesh was Mandya MP, he again applied for a site. He got a 50X80 site (now with House No 917) on March 23, 2002, under the MP quota. He paid `3 lakh for the site.

Halved and Sold

Later, the site was allegedly divided into two and one portion (25X80 ft) was sold to K Govindaraju, a resident of Mysore, for Rs 1.75 lakh. The other (also 25X80 ft) was sold to S Ajith, a resident of Hindavalu in Mandya taluk, for Rs 3.87 lakh. This sale also violated also rules.

Section 12 (2) of the Karnataka Urban Development Authorities (Allotment of Sites) Rules of 1991 stipulates that any person who owns a site or house in any part of the state becomes ineligible for another site or house from any authority or housing board in the state. Efforts to reach Ambareesh failed.

Self-Housing Minister

Ambareesh allegedly owns three sites in violation of the rules:

n   Mysore: 78X50 ft, Kuvempunagar. Paid Rs 36,444.

n   Bangalore: 120X80 ft, J P Nagar (Sarakki). Paid Rs 93,639.

n   Mandya: 50X80 ft. Paid Rs 3 lakh. Divided it and sold it to two buyers.

 

Full-fledged CBI probe likely in Mandya site scam

 

Urban Development Minister Vin­a­y Kumar Sorake on Tuesday said his department would look into the findings and merits of a report by the Mandya Urban Development Authority (MUDA) commissioner K Mathai on the alleged irregularities and illegal allotment of sites by the Authority.

“We have received the report, but have not accepted it. We will send the report to the Home department for its perusal,” Sorake told reporters here. Sorake said the department had already handed over the initial case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The department is handing over all the documents pertaining to the case to the CBI.

“Whether this report also warrants to be handed over to the CBI is a decision which will be left to the Home department,” he said. The report, which was submitted on June 4 to the Urban Development department, speaks about a loss of Rs 300 crore to the State government by way of illegalities under various schemes. The report states that the government has already handed over the case pertaining to 107 sites to the CBI. Justifying the decision to hand over the case to CBI, Sorake said that the initial estimates of the scam were to the extent of Rs 23 crore. The misappropriated amount was transferred to accounts outside India, primarily to Australia, said the minister.

 

On Housing Minister M H Ambareesh’s reported request to transfer Mathai from the present post, Sorake said that he had not received any such request. “But he has already been promoted and transferred to Bidar. Due to the Lok Sabha elections, the transfer was withheld,” said the minister.

Sorake said that the department was trying to strengthen the Directorate of Urban Development and streamline the site allotment process in the City Corporations. He said that 50,000 sites in Mysore were remaining vacant, despite them being allotted to beneficiaries.

 

Land mafia grabs Mysore Maharaja Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar Bahadur’s property

With the last scion of the erstwhile princely state of Mysore, Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar Bahadur, passing away more than six months ago, the real estate mafia is eyeing his properties running into crores of rupees, in the heart of the historical city of Mysore.

Astonishingly, two prime properties of Wadiyar were alienated just 3 days before he passed away (December 10, 2013) with the sub-registrar’s office even giving its approval. This prompted the late prince’s widow Pramodadevi to seek a Lokayukta probe. Till recently, the Wadiyar family members were not even aware of their land being usurped by the real estate mafia.

The net worth of Wadiyar’s assets (spread across Bangalore, Mysore and Ooty) are estimated to be in excess of Rs.1,600 crore. He also holds a share in the Bangalore Palace grounds, which is embroiled in a legal dispute after the Karnataka Government planned to take over the same. It is not clear as to how many smaller properties the Wadiyar family owns but the land mafia’s efforts, has shocked the people of Mysore. Incidentally, both the illegal transactions were brought to the notice of the royal family by an NGO (Karnataka Rajya Hindulida Vargagala Jagruta Vedike).

“It is unfortunate that illegal alienation of properties owned by the Maharaja’s family is happening in the CM’s hometown. He has agreed to look into the matter and directed the authorities concerned to take up the issue. Hopefully, the Lokayukta should be able to end this menace,” said Vedike’s president K.S. Shivaram.

Mysore Lokayukta SP S.M. Jagadish Prasad said a probe had already been ordered into the two land transactions and that the properties would be restored to the Wadiyars.

In the first incident, a prime property belonging to the Wadiyars near the Mysore Mall was sold, as if the late prince had given his consent on December 7, 2013 (just three days before he died). The police have arrested two real estate agents and the sub-regitrar concerned.

In the second incident, again on the same day (December 7), another prime property (1.5 acres) was alienated in favour of 70-year-old Siddamma, a gardener in the palace. Apparently, it is shown in the sale deed that Wadiyar granted the land to Siddamma as a gift.

“On December 7, 2013, the late prince was in Bangalore. There is no way that he visited the subregistrar’s office to sign the sale deed documents. This is a clear case of forgery. We need to examine all the transactions to detect such cases,” said Shivaram.

According to him, the real estate mafia has fenced three other prime properties owned by the Wadiyars in Mysore.

 

Siddu Govt Illegally Denotified 707 Acres, Alleges BJP

The BJP has accused the Siddaramaiah government of illegally denotifying 707 acres of land in the Arkavathy Layout by flouting High Court guidelines. 

This is 166 acres more than what Opposition Leader Jagadish Shettar had mentioned when he raised the issue in the Assembly in July. Shettar had alleged denotification of 541 acres.

The committee, set up by the BJP to unearth alleged illegal denotification in the layout, and comprising party legislators S Suresh Kumar and V Somanna, on Thursday submitted a 12-point report to party president Prahlad Joshi.

The report says the scam was perpetrated by exploiting the High Court direction to review all complaints of irregularities in land acquisition.

Huge tracts of lands have been denotified by marking the note “redo” on these files, making it the new term for denotification in the Siddaramaiah government, the BJP said.

“The Siddaramaiah government has committed a huge scam in which thousands of crores have changed hands and huge tracts of land have been acquired by big builders and developers. The entire deal was done just ahead of the recent Lok Sabha election,” Joshi told reporters.

Joshi and Shettar, who first raised the issue during the last Assembly session said, “It is just the interim report and a more comprehensive, explosive final report would be submitted in January 2015. The state BJP leadership will seek advice from legal experts and decide on its next course of action in the next two weeks.”

BJP, which has not accepted the Justice Kempanna Commission on alleged denotification of land, is contemplating a legal fight and is expected to approach Governor Vajubhai Vala seeking his sanction for prosecution of the Chief Minister. Meanwhile, it may launch an agitation to maintain pressure on Siddaramaiah.

Shettar said there was no question of giving up and the issue would be taken to its logical conclusion “as the government has committed huge irregularities”. Of the 707 acres denotified by the Siddaramaiah government, Special Land Acquisition Officers has recommended denotification of 390 acres during the Shettar regime. “However, I did not approve it when I was the Chief Minister. The Siddaramaiah government has denotified 707 acres, including the 390 acres,” Shettar said.

The BJP released a report on illegal denotification of land in the Arkavathy Layout by the Siddaramaiah government.

The Charges

■ The HC’s six-point guidelines state that denotification could be considered only if:  the said land comes under the Green Belt Area, if the land has already been built up, if the land has been released for charitable trusts, if there is a nursery on the land, if any industry has come up on the land and if the land is contiguous with the above categories, based on the status of the said land as in 2003.

■ For instance, 54 acres of land has been denotified in 2014 ignoring the report of officials who studied the status of the land and had stated that it cannot be denotified. The BJP report says that the land has been denotified flouting the HC guidelines as it involved a deal of hundreds of crores.

■ In a midnight move, 52 acres was denotified without considering any of the guidelines set by the HC based on the only reason that the BDA had received an application seeking denotification.

■ BDA, which had filed an affidavit in the HC to continue land acquisition in Kempapura and Sriramapura villages, later violated its own commitment and denotified huge tracts of land in these two villages after passing a resolution.

■ The BJP report has also suspected malafide intentions in denotification of 20 acres of land in which Tata Housing had shown keen interest.

■ Utter confusion prevails after denotification of land on which Khadi Village Industries Board had allotted sites for about 200

applicants, as there is no clarity on whether the land has been denotified in

favour of the farmers or the board.

■ About 300 site allottees in Arkavathy Layout are left in the lurch as the lands on which their sites have been developed have also been denotified.

 

Who encroached Bengaluru?

 

For 11,595 lake encroachers in Bengaluru Urban and Rural districts, February 29th is the deadline. They can submit their grievances or objections in response to the notices served to them by revenue officials, on encroachment. Though this date may be extended for a few more days, not much time is left for those who wish to communicate their version to the committees headed by tahsildars of respective taluks. This also gives a chance to those who have information on encroachments to share it with the committee.

A 11-member Committee of the Legislative Assembly headed by K B Koliwad, Ranebennur MLA and Legislative Assembly Committee chairman, had recently declared that prominent developers are major encroachers of tanks and tank beds in Bengaluru. The statement was based on a physical survey conducted by the Directorate of Survey, Settlement and Land Records in Karnataka. The Committee had also visited several lakes in the city and verified documents from BDA, BBMP and Lake Development Authority. According to the survey by the Directorate of Survey, Settlement and Land Records: Total encroachment in Bengaluru Urban and Rural districts: 10,472 acres Encroachment in Bengaluru Rural : 6,195 acres. Encroachment in Bengaluru Urban is 4,277 acres. Encroachment by private parties:  7,185 acres Encroachment by government parties: 3,287 acres. Encroachment in Bengaluru North : 1,171 acres – highest in Bengaluru Urban. Encroachment in Hoskote:3,113 acres – highest in Bengaluru Rural

The committee has been issuing show-cause notices to the encroachers to give them a fair chance to submit their version. Koliwad committee will prepare their final report based on inputs to the data that has been shared now. K B Koliwad informed Citizen Matters that as per the system of natural justice, the Committee decided to give an opportunity to the lake encroachers to submit their objections or grievances. Their responses will be examined and scrutinised by the committees headed by jurisdictional Assistant Commissioners. The Committee, while verifying the claims made by encroachers, will also do spot inspections after March, if the need arises. Based on the reports submitted by ACs of various sub-divisions, the Legislative Committee will prepare the encroachment report and submit it to the legislature, along with recommendations, Koliwad said.

He added that the last date for responding to notices which has been currently set as February 29th, could be extended for a few days, as the government officials are now busy with panchayat elections and are unable to attend to the encroachment issue. People can also share information on encroachments, with the committee. Some of the prominent private and government encroachers listed in the survey report are:

Private: Harmony Developers, Divyashree Tech Park, St Ann’s Junior College (KR Puram), Bagmane Developers, Garden City College Bhattarahalli, National College ground, NICE Road, Shobha Developers, SV Lake View Apartment, JSS High School, Prestige Group of Companies, SLN Public School, Aishwarya Apartment, Oberoi Group, Garden View Apartment, Adarsh Developers, Prestige Group, N D Developers apartments, Sriram apartments,

Government: KIADB, BBMP, Kempegowda Hospital and College, BDA, KSPCB, Slum Board, Education department (various government schools), Railway department, Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd, Karnataka Housing Board, Forest Department, International Airport Authority (for Kempegowda International Airport), various road departments, Indian Oil Corporation, Horticulture Department, BMTC, DRDO.

All builders have encroached land: KB Koliwad

Bengaluru: House Committee on Tank Encroachment and Rejuvenation, Chairman, K. B. Koliwad on Friday named many big names in the real estate sector for allegedly encroaching lakes in and around city. The names include Sobha Developers, Brigade Group, Prestige Group, Adarsh Developers, DS Max Group, Bagmane Tech Park, among others.

The committee has not even spared government agencies such as Bengaluru Development Authority and BBMP, as these two agencies are major encroachers among the government departments. Both private and government agencies together encroached  10,472 acre, while various government agencies have encroached 3,287 acres and private builders, including slum dwellers, have encroached 7,185 acres in the city.

According to the Committee the encroached land value is estimated at more than `1.5 lakh crore. Doresani Palya Lake was encroached upon by the BDA and developed as a layout with sites allotted to Assembly Speaker Kagodu Thimmappa and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah himself. Though Mr Thimmappa retained the site, Mr Siddaramaiah sold his site sometime back.

Mr Koliwad told reporters that the IT boom contributed to the greed of these private builders and this led to the encroachment of lakes in and around the city.

“During our investigations it was revealed that several forged documents were fabricated within no time to aid these encroachments,” he said.

According to him, Bengaluru Urban and Bengaluru Rural districts together had 1,545 lakes, 2,000 small water bodies and rivulets, which measured around 3,000 acres. “All in all 11,595 encroachment cases have been identified, which not only include government agencies or private builders but even slum dwellers.  Therefore we have issued show-cause notices to all 11,595 people, including builders and common people involved in these alleged encroachments. The last date for them to respond to our notice is by the end of this month,” he said in response to a question.

After obtaining the reports, the committee will give a final report within three months. The committee is likely to recommend seizure of the assets of officers involved in lake encroachments.

The disclosure of names of big realtors and details of encroachments during the press conference on Friday raised questions rather than clear the doubts. Generally, the House committees do not hold press conferences before submitting the final reports to the Speaker. On Friday, the committee did not give an interim report or the final report to the Speaker. One of the members, who refused to come on record told Deccan Chronicle that the committee wanted to wipe out the negative campaign being spread against the committee that it was doing nothing. Friday’s press conference was an attempt to clear this, he said.

The synopsis circulated among the media did not have any details of companies that allegedly encroached upon tank beds. However, details were orally shared. This raised question as to why such critical information was not shared. The sudden disclosure ahead of the crucial elections to taluk and zilla panchayats may raise many questions about the political ramifications and the future actions involving this information.

We will prove our point: Suresh Hari, secretary, CREDAI
The Koliwad Committee may have released a survey report, but who knows the basis of this report? The findings of the report are subject to interpretation and have their own issues. At the end of the day, who has sanctioned the buildings and who has verified the title? These are all the acts of the state government and its agencies and we have nothing to worry about. We have procured the land legally, and if the Committee says some of the buildings are on encroached land, we have to remember that it’s not the builder who encroached upon it. We will ensure that the safety of property owners is protected by the association and its builder-members. We have time and again said that our properties were constructed with due diligence. Let the Committee prove that our properties are constructed on encroached land and if it says we are wrong, we will prove our merit and show them we are right. The state government is waking up now and saying that some of the layouts and apartment complexes are constructed on encroached land — this is nothing but harassment. However, having said that, CREDAI feels it’s a challengeable report given by the Committee.

Shut down BDA: Ashwin Mahesh, Urban planning expert
The K.B Koliwad Committee has said that the BDA has allotted 65,000 sites on encroached lake beds and over 3,287 acres of land has been encroached by the government bodies itself. Now, what the Committee does not tell us is how these bodies and officials concerned went about the encroachment. The problem is the BDA is both the planning and implementation authority. When the BDA itself is the judge, to decide what job has to be done and how good the job is, where is the question of quality? There are no strengths, skills or trust to the works carried out by the BDA. The solution to this would be in shutting down the BDA. Or at least, it should no longer acquire land but should get involved in infrastructure development. The magnitude of land encroachment and irregularities is so massive that though there are right solutions, they cannot be implemented. Punishment for encroachments cannot be inflicted in accordance to the scale of the encroachments. How can we punish the British for colonialism? The officials who let the encroachments happen have retired and they will say it was not their fault. Maybe we can move the court and the BDA can be penalized. But there’s no way to inflict punishment to the scale of encroachments. The BDA has become a broker agency and it understands that more brokering brings more income. It’s earning its revenue from brokerage and this has to be put to an end.

Demolish all encroachments: V. Balasubramanya, former chairman, Special Task Force
Whether buildings on lake beds have been constructed with government’s consent or not, all illegal buildings have to be demolished. For instance, in Maharashtra, the High Court ordered that encroachments on the banks of the Mithi River have to be demolished and the court order was followed accordingly. Despite land rates being higher in Maharashtra, the encroachments were razed. So, there should be no excuse in Bengaluru; no yielding even to the claims of innocent builders. The individual plot owners should have known that the BDA is a corrupt organization — when buying plots from them, they should be extra cautious. There’s a legal principle called – ‘buyers beware’ and this should have been followed by individual plot owners. If the state government starts regularizing layouts under the pretext of humanitarian grounds, there will be no end to such regularisation. And getting permissions from government agencies even for an illegal plot is not a tough task any more. If all the violations are regularized in the city, one day, people will have to be evacuated as Bengaluru will start flooding due to the absence of lake beds. Private builders will be aware of the violations and there should be no question of regularizing any layouts or constructions, even if it’s sanctioned by a government agency.

Public consultation next step: Suresh Kumar  MLA, member of Koliwad Committee
We have the data for over 4,000 lakes and the Committee members visited 19 lakes in the city. Interestingly, during our survey, it came to our notice that many lakes have dried up 25 years ago and there’s no way water will accumulate in these lakes again. The Committee is in a fix whether such lakes should still be considered lakes or whether we should allow the layouts to flourish. In the first step, we have released the findings of the survey report and we are yet to tackle the issue of layouts that were formed by the BDA. Since BDA is a government agency, owners who have brought plots from the BDA must be rehabilitated. We have held detailed discussions with the revenue department officials regarding this, and now the officials have been directed to hold public consultations in order to gather objections, feedback and opinions from citizens. Meanwhile, we have also instructed the Revenue department to look for alternatives. We are trying to find out feasible solutions to decide the next course of action.

Brigade Group denies allegation

The Brigade Group has strongly denied the report alleging that it had encroached a lake. The realty firm said it was a mischievous and motivated report. “As a responsible real estate developer of repute for over 29 years, Brigade group has been taking great care to save lakes and conserve the environment. In fact, as part of our CSR Initiatives, Brigade Group has recently rejuvenated 24 acres of Sitharampalya Lake in Whitefield,” the company said. We also wish to inform you that Brigade Group recently won two national awards instituted by CREDAI India for its Corporate Social Responsibility. We won the Environmental Impact Award for the rejuvenation of the Sitharampalya Lake in Whitefield and the redevelopment of the Sangolli Rayanna Park in Malleswaram and the social infrastructure award for the redevelopment of the Sri Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Playground in Malleswaram and the Skywalk with escalator across Dr. Rajkumar Road in Rajajinagar,” the company added

Police grill MUDAofficial over RTIactivist’s murder

 

 Police took six people into custody in connection with the death of RTI activist Srinath, whose body was found near Ganjam in Srirangapatna, Mandya district on Friday. Srinath, who had unearthed the BEML Employees Housing Society scam, had been reported missing since Thursday.

 

Police took four office-bearers of the society, an official of the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) and his car driver for investigation on Saturday. Srinath had unearthed various scams of the society in connection with the development of Rajarajeshwari Layout in the city.

 

Srinath and his family had been residing at Rajarajeshwari Layout developed by the society since 2008. The society had allotted the sites without providing basic amenities such as drinking water, streetlights and roads. Even after repeated petitions to the society, the authorities failed to provide facilities and Srinath had obtained related documents about the layout from MUDA under RTI Act, said his brother Srinivas.

 

Srinath brought to light anomalies like illegal allotment of sites, land encroachment and others through the documents he had procured. The society had obtained 105 acres of land from MUDA by providing fake documents and had encroached agriculture lands which were not acquired by the government. Srinath launched a legal fight against the society, said Srinivas.

 

Srinath’s friend Lokesh said site registration and transfer of site documents had stopped after Srinath launched the legal fight. Srinath provided documents to farmers who approached the court, questioning the encroachment of their land by the society. Lokesh said the society office-bearers had approached Srinath several times for a compromise and had also offered him three sites free of charge.

 

 

BEML housing society now in Rs. 500-cr. land scam

 

By  Sudipto Mondal

 

Office-bearers of the BEML Employees’ Housing Cooperative Society, who were at the centre of a recent controversy over irregular plot allotments, appear to be involved in another Rs. 500-crore land scam.

In what has been a season of land scams, this one stands out for the ingenuity with which the system was once again exploited by the society’s president J. Munnagappa and the former vice-president H.S. Kumar.

They posed as farmers and claimed that they lost 100 acres of land during the formation of the Arkavathy Layout by the Bangalore Development Authority, and received compensatory plots in the layout that are estimated to be worth Rs. 500 crore. The compensatory residential plots allotted to them are situated in the vicinity of the Bengaluru International Airport.

On their part, officials of the BDA failed to scrutinise Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa’s claims, although they could have done it by checking the records of the land for which the claims for compensation were raised. The BEML officials “invested” only Rs. 20 crore to secure the illegal compensation from the BDA.

How they pulled it off

Documents provided to The Hindu by the former Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) councillor K.N. Chakrapani show the way Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa staked their claims for compensation.

On February 23, 2004, the BDA issued final notification for 100 acres in Hennur, Gedlahalli, Tannisandra and Byrathi Khane villages.

Soon after the final notification orders were issued, Mr. Munnagappa and Mr. Kumar purchased land from the farmers in violation of Sections 3 and 4 of The Karnataka Land (Restriction on Transfer) Act, 1991, which stipulate that nobody shall sell, mortgage, gift or lease land that has been acquired or notified for acquisition by the government.

Documents of transfer between the original landholders and the two society officials show that the operation was conducted between March 2004 and April 2005, and cost Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa Rs. 20 crore.

Seven-year hiatus

After lying low for nearly seven years, they raised a claim for compensation before the BDA posing as farmers and land losers. For each acre of the 100 acres that they purchased illegally, the BDA gave them plots adding up to 9,583 sq ft.

One such allotment deed registered on April 17, 2012 states that Mr. Munnagappa is a land loser and is being compensated as per the land-in-exchange-for-land policy. (This policy was instituted to make land losers stakeholders in development.)

The land allotted to the two society officials as compensation by the BDA is valued at Rs. 500 crore, at Rs. 5,000 per sq ft. On the other hand, the real land owners got only between Rs. 10 lakh and Rs. 12 lakh per acre from Mr. Kumar and Mr. Munnagappa.

Rs. 100 as stamp duty

What is more, Mr. Munnagappa and Mr. Kumar benefited from the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa’s “pro-farmer” policy, under which they were exempted from playing the full stamp duty for the land given as compensation. The allotment deeds show that they paid only Rs. 100 as stamp duty per plot.

Asked to respond, Mr. Kumar initially said that he was acting on the orders of his superiors at BEML. Mr. Munnagappa refused to react.

BDA Commissioner Pradeep Singh Kharola did not respond to repeated phone calls and text messages seeking an explanation.

Terming the scam “daylight robbery”, Mr. Chakrapani has demanded that the State government order a judicial inquiry into the alleged illegalities in the Arkavathy Layout project.

 

 

Neck-deep in corruption charges, BEML chief now accused of fraud

 

V R S Natarajan provided different addresses and wrong age to register three plots in his name in Bangalore and Mysore.

By  Vanu Dev

 

BEML chairman and managing director V R S Natarajan, who is facing a plethora of corruption charges, has another problem on hands.

Natarajan allegedly committed a fraud by providing different addresses and mentioning his wrong age while registering residential plots in Bangalore and Mysore through the BEML Employees’ Cooperative Society (BECS). Disgruntled members of the BECS now plan to approach the Registrar of Cooperative Societies with their complaint.

The plots were allotted to Natarajan by BEML allegedly in violation of cooperative sector rules. According to disgruntled members of the BECS, Natarajan allegedly pressurised the BECS office-bearers to allot him two plots, measuring 6000 square feet combined, in BEML Layout 6th Stage, Bangalore, during January 2005, for a sum of Rs 10 lakh.

The Bangalore plots, number 795 and 796, are valued at more than Rs 1 crore as per current market price. At the time of registering the plots, Natarajan had reportedly provided his residential address in Bangalore, which is his official quarter provided by BEML. He had also mentioned his age as 53 years.

 

During March 2005, the BECS allotted another plot (No 91) at BEML Layout in Mysore. In the registration papers, he has given a Mysore residence address and mentioned his age as 52 years.

“The allotments were made hastily, resulting in a number of discrepancies. The rules are clear about possessing multiple residential plots. Besides, he has mentioned his age wrong. We will lodge a complaint against him with the Registrar of Cooperative Societies,” sources in the BECS said.

The acquisition of the three plots by Natarajan is in direct violation of the rules laid down by the Karnataka government. Section 10 (a) of the model bye-laws for the house building cooperative societies, implemented by the Karnataka government in 1993, clearly states that any member of a housing co-operative society is eligible for a site only if “he/she does not already own a plot or house/flat/apartment in his/her own name, or in the name of any other member of his/her family in the corporation limits/development authority limits/municipal limits in whose limit the society is situated”.

In addition, Natarajan had not completed the mandatory 5 years of service in BEML to become eligible for allotment of the plots. Natarajan had joined BEML in 2002, and by 2005, within a span of three years, the BECS allotted the three plots to him.

In addition to the alleged out-of-turn allotment of plots to Natarajan, another 60 plots were allotted in violation of rules by BECS. Three BEML employees — C Umesh, Martin Luther and S Vishwanatha — alleged that they were transferred from Bangalore to Kolar Gold Fields office after they formally complained to the Registrar of Co-operative Societies against the unauthorized allotments. Subsequently, the three employees approached the high court seeking relief.

However, BECS office-bearers defended the allotments to Natarajan, saying there was nothing illegal in the process. In a statement, the BECS said, “Top officials of BEML in the management and Board have been given sites under the five per cent discretionary quota. Associate members too have been given sites as associate membership is allowed under the law. We have allotted 8,000 sites in Bangalore so far and that includes sites to directors, and chairmen from 1972 onwards.”

But people, who own plots in Bangalore, cannot acquire more even under the discretionary quota. Former Supreme Court judge, Justice Shivaraj Patil, had to quit as the Lokayukta of Karnataka after it was found that he was in possession of multiple residential plots in Bangalore.

 

 

BEML housing society flouted allotment rules: ex-employees

By  Johnson T A ,

 

A housing co-operative created in Karnataka by the employees of defence public sector unit BEML, whose top management is currently under the CBI scanner for alleged irregularities in the purchase of Tatra trucks, has been accused of allotting as many as 63 residential sites in violation of housing co-operative rules in 10 housing colonies under its purview.

In a complaint to the registrar of co-operative societies, some former employees of BEML have accused the management of the housing co-operative of allotting plots to 39 members without applications and 24 outsiders or non-members in its housing colonies.

In a letter written to Karnataka Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, the president of the National Confederation of Ex-employees Association of PSUs, S N Ashok, has linked some of these out-of-turn allotments as payoffs to muzzle questioning of the Tatra deal.

Seeking an inquiry by the Corps of Detectives in Karnataka, Ashok has estimated that property worth Rs 80 crore has been illegally given away to non-employees by the BEML Employees Co-operative Society Ltd.

Apart from allotting properties to persons not connected directly with BEML, the co-operative is accused of allotting land to employees who had not completed a mandatory five-year term with the company, to members of the board and to on-deputation employees.

K S Periyaswamy, an ex-employee of BEML, has alleged that close relatives and friends of T K A Nair, an adviser to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, are among the recipients of sites meant for the BEML employees. The out-of-turn allotments has resulted in several genuine employees not being allotted properties in BEML colonies, Periya-swamy has stated.

The ex-employee of BEML has accused chairman of BEML V R S Natarajan of influencing the management of the BEML Employees Co-operative to make out-of-turn allotments. Natarajan himself has been accused of availing two properties in violation of housing co-operative bye-laws.

Preethi Prabha, a relative of Nair who had been allocated site number 14 measuring 2,400 square feet in a BEML housing colony in the Uttarahalli region of Bangalore in December 2008 had returned her site in 2010 after complaints were filed with the PM, the official of the ex-employees’ confederation said.

There may be many more people connected to top persons in the establishment in the list of illegal allottees of sites in BEML housing colonies, Ashok said. “Every time there was a visiting delegation from the Central government to BEML in recent years, be it an SC/ST commission or any other body the visitors were given lavish gifts, including gold biscuits,” Periyaswamy claimed.

Hundreds of housing co-operatives in Bangalore have over the years been plagued by similar allegations of out-of-turn allotments and violations of bye-laws by managements.

The Bangalore Development Authority which provides the land to housing co-operatives and validates the allotments and their legality rarely intervenes in out-of-turn allotments. Among the most controversial has been the Karnataka State Judicial Department Employees House Building Co-operative Society where the allotment of properties to judges has in the past been called into question. The issue was resolved after a ruling said judges were also eligible.

A case filed against irregularities in housing co-operatives across Bangalore is currently pending before the Karnataka High Court.

No illegal allotments, says Nair

New Delhi: Denying allegations of any ‘wrongdoing’ in the allotment of plots by the Housing Co-operative Society of BEML, Prime Minister’s adviser T K A Nair on Sunday claimed in a statement that “no irregularity or illegality” was involved in it “to the best of my knowledge”.

Nair’s statement came in the wake of media reports suggesting that two plots were allotted to his niece and a friend in Bangalore in an “irregular” manner.

Nair said he had sought “all the relevant facts” in this matter even as he dismissed as “absolutely baseless” any linkage to the Tatra truck deal. “My attention has been drawn to media reports about the alleged irregular allotment of residential plots of the Housing Co-operative Society of BEML to my relatives and family friends. To the best of my knowledge no irregularity or illegality was involved in the allotments,” Nair said.

“I have requested the PMO to obtain all the relevant facts of this matter through the Department of Defence Production,” he said.

The Hindu in its report from Bangalore on Sunday reported that the plots were allotted to Nair’s niece Preethi Prabha and family friend Uma Devi Nambiar at “throwaway prices” in BEML society in South Bangalore in 2008.

It further said the allotments were made at a time when complaints about the role of BEML chairman and managing director V R S Natarajan in controversial Tatra truck deal were pending with the Prime Minister’s Office besides the Central Vigilance Commission and Ministry of Defence. Responding to this, Nair said, “The insinuation linking these allotments with the Tatra deal is absolutely baseless.”

 

Karnataka official Mahantesh’s murder case figures in Rajya Sabha

 

The killing of the Karnataka official SP Mahantesh, said to be the whistle-blower in the controversial land allotments by societies, was raised in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday by CPI-M member KN Balagopal.

   

Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, Balagopal said that Mr Mahantesh was a crucial source of some of the stories that appeared in the newspapers published on the corruption and irregularity in the land allotment for various cooperative societies including that of BEML (Bharat Earth Movers Limited) employees in Banglaore.

   

He said over a dozen RTI activists and whistle-blowers have been murdered in last one year and that the government has “pathetically failed” to protect them, he insisted that the murder of Mr Mahantesh is different as he had released a copy of the report on land allotment to the BEML.

   

Army Chief General VK Singh had said in an interview that the money was offered to him to clear the purchase of 600 “sub-standard” Tatra trucks. Tatra, a Czech manufacturer, supplies trucks to the Army through BEML. These trucks are manufactured in the Czech Republic.

   

On the controversy surrounding the supply of Tatra Trucks to Indian Army through BEML, Balagopal said, “it is for the Centre to prove that the murder is not related to Tatra Truck and BEML.”

   

Mr Mahantesh succumbed to injuries after being assaulted a few days back.  His death triggered strong reactions from the civil society and the political class.

Honourable Chief Secretary , Government of Karnataka & Others

….Respondents

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.

To ,
Hon’ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship’s Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
“Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants.

2. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to government of karnataka authorities , MUDA , BDA , KIADB , MCC , BBMNP , etc seeking information regarding illegal buildings , land encroachments specifically in mysore & bangalore , they didn’t provide me information. Now one land scam after another are tumbling out.

3. I have given certain details to authorities including judiciary , SCI regarding land , lake encroachments in mysore when encroachment was at preliminary stage. The authories could have stopped it , but they didn,t. Now , the hinkal lake , hebbal lake , hootagalli lake & BEML Quarters lake have been encroached to maximum extent and criminals have made crores of rupees profit.

4. Government authorities has not given title deeds to tribals living in forest since centuries , government authorities has not given title deeds to landless people , dalits who are cultivating on government land since decades.

5. Government authorities , police immediately evict , take suo motto action when a poor family , nomadic family just erects a hutment on government land. The same public servants , police don’t take action when a rich crook palatial bungalow , business complex on government land , lake bed. Cann’t they see it. , they can but are hands in glove with looters.

6. even some of the judges don’t take action when appeal for justice is made to them , to evict encroachers , to stop encroachment. It may be quid pro quo arrangement with crooks. See how many judges have benefitted from government discretionary quota allotment of sites , illegal judicial layout , etc.

7. The land encroachers are not poor people below poverty line , they don’t even have ability to build a pucca house. Encroachers are rich crooks , greedy individuals with political connection. So they don’t deserve compassion.

8. Now , government of karnataka is trying to legalise illegalities in buildings , land encroachments , which gives a booster dose to criminals to commit more crimes.

9. As per equitable law if present land encroachments are legalized , in future too government must legalize future land encroachments when ever it takes place.

10. Prior to enactment of AKRAMA SAKRAMA SCHEME of government of karnataka legalizing illegal constructions , land encroachments, MUDA , BDA , MCC , KIADB officials evicted , demolished buildings of encroachers who didn’t cough up bribes. The one who paid bribes , their encroachments , illegal buildings survived and now getting legalized by government.

11. Now , as per equity who ever have been evicted from encroachments , who’s illegal buildings demolished must get compensation from government. If not all encroachers must be evicted & illegal buildings must be demolished.

12. Now  Karnataka High Court  has given green signal to  “AKRAMA SAKRAMA” scheme of government of Karnataka , therby HC Judges are favoring land mafia , criminals.

13. It is the duty of the government  , Police & Court  to  give protection  to journalists , whistle blowers , RTI Activists  who are unearthing  truths , crimes. But  all of them have failed in their duties  to protect RTI Activist Mr.Srinath of Mysuru who was brutally murdered.

14. Recently  Karnataka high court  gave  clearance to Karnataka government’s  regularization of illegal buildings  ( AKRAMA  SAKRAMA ) scheme.

a.  Law is one & same for all.

b.  Government  authorities , police razes down , demolishes  small temporary hutments built by tribals , dalits without  mercy ,  takes suo motto action.  No  court comes to their rescue.

c. Till date  bagar hukum  lands  are not given to dalits , tribals  are not given land rights over their huts in forests. Is Cout  blind , deaf ?

d. However  when rich crooks build  bungalows , commercial complexes  illegally , no suo motto action  taken by government authorizes , police , why ? Courts go a step further it gives  stay orders against demolition  of rich crook’s illegal buildings , asks government to modify plan , law itself  to save illegal buildings of rich crooks.

e. Does Karnataka HC  has  details of exact number of building violations , buildings built on forest lands , lake beds , raja kaluves  with  respective  after  affects on neighbouring buildings , road traffic , ecology , etc  and contingency plan by authorities to overcome those  after affects  casewise backed by technical studies. Make it public.

f. What criminal  action initiated against revenue , police & other officials  who failed in their  duties at the first instance  to stop the  illegal building construction.

g. Small houses  of  poor people  who have  smaller building violations  but  who failed to bribe officials  were dealt mercilessly. Their houses were razed down . Now , will the HC order the government to compensate them , to rebuild houses for them  as the court is now saying they are legal now.

h. Government & HC has given a  cut  off  date  for consideration of  regularization of illegal buildings. When a crime before that cut off date becomes legal , why cann’t it be legal  after that date ?

i. What  guarantee  HC gives no illegal  buildings  has  come up after cut off date  and will never come in future ?

j. If comes what criminal action  against the concerned officials ?

Bottomline : Judges open your eyes , listen , think & then act.

2. Question(s) of Law:

Is robbing another’s property right , legal ? is robbing land , lake – a public property for private , individual use right ? 

Is it  NOT  the  duty  of Police , Court & Government  to  protect Rights , Lives  of  Journalists , Whistle Blowers , RTI  Activists and their family ?

Why   they failed to protect  the life of  Mysuru RTI Activist  Mr. Srinath ? 

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of master minds of land grabbing ,frauds and related crimes.

4. Averment:

Covering up Land Frauds & Land Mafia . Please read details at :

RTI  ACTIVIST’S   MURDER :  POLICE  DETAIN  6  FOR  QUESTIONING 

RTI activist Srinath

Mysuru, Dec. 31 – Six persons have been detained for questioning in the murder of Srinath, a Mysuru-based RTI activist. They were detained this morning based on the clues provided by Srinath’s family members that the RTI activist had faced threats from the corrupt as he had exposed their illegal dealings.

The 36-year-old Srinath, a resident of Rajarajeshwarinagar in city, was murdered in Srirangapatna and his body was found yesterday below the bridge that connects Karighatta and Ganjam. His body including face, legs and private parts bore deep injuries.

The six detained persons include an engineer whose house was recently raided by Anti Corruption Bureau in Mysuru where crores of rupees worth properties were recovered, his driver and four others from BEML Layout who were at loggerheads with Srinath. Though the Police are tight-lipped about the detention, sources told Star of Mysore that they are being questioned at an undisclosed location and clues to the murder might emerge by today evening.

Srinath was active in exposing the corrupt through his RTI activism and had earned the wrath of the rich and the corrupt who saw him as a roadblock for their illegal activities.

He used to fight injustice by collecting information and had made RTI a powerful weapon.

Srinath had also exposed how BEML Layout was built without permission from the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA). Through RTI, he had waged a war against some persons since the last three years for building a layout without mandatory permission from MUDA. This issue had even reached the Saraswathipuram Police Station where compromise meetings were held.

City Police Commissioner Dr. A Subramanyeshwara Rao, Deputy Commissioner (Law and Order) Dr. H.T. Shekar and KR ACP C. Mallik visited the murder spot this morning and held a meeting with in-charge Inspector of Srirangapatna Police Station M.K. Deepak and Sub-Inspector Puneet. The case will be investigated by Srirangapatna Police, sources said.

Speaking to Star of Mysore at the MMCR&I mortuary where the post-mortem of Srinath’s body was conducted this morning, his brothers V. Srinivas and Pradeep said that the RTI activist had faced threat from the MUDA engineer and some persons from BEML Layout whose Khata was not issued by MUDA due to illegality.

“All of them had openly threatened our brother and we suspect their involvement in the murder. We have also given their names to the Police,” they said.

Soon after the murder case was registered yesterday, the Police visited Srinath’s house at Rajarajeshwarinagar and recovered many documents regarding the controversial BEML Layout. Also, many documents regarding other corrupt officers have been recovered, sources said.

Yesterday, Srinath’s body was spotted by some passers-by and in-charge Inspector of Srirangapatna Police Station M.K. Deepak found the body wrapped in four bed sheets. A pit had been dug near the body where turmeric, kumkum, eggs and other items were found.

According to the Police, these items were usually used in black magic and as Dec. 30 (Thursday) was a New Moon (amavasye) the killers would have placed the items to mislead the investigation team.

The Police also suspect that the assailants might have dumped the body near the river after killing him elsewhere.

Srinath had gone out from his house on Thursday evening on his bike (KA-09-HH-5332) and when his brother V. Srinivas had called him up at 7.30 pm Srinath had replied that he was heading towards the house of building supervisor Kumar at Vijayanagar and would return soon.

As Srinath did not return and both of his mobile phones were switched off, the family members had lodged a missing person complaint at the Kuvempunagar Police Station. Srinath’s mobile phones and bike have not yet been recovered.
