SC rejects plea on guidelines of HCs for designating lawyers as seniors

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to entertain a plea seeking a direction to all the 24 high courts to amend their guidelines in terms of the apex court’s judgement on procedures to be adopted for designating lawyers as seniors so that an advocate with ten years of experience at the bar may also apply for it.The apex court, in October 2017, had laid down guidelines for itself and 24 high courts to govern the exercise of designating lawyers as seniors. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!In one of the guidelines, it had ordered setting up of a committee headed by the Chief Justice of India in the Supreme Court and Chief Justices for the high courts to deal with the seniority of lawyers. “We are not inclined to entertain the plea,” a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said while dismissing the plea filed by BJP leader and lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay. Upadhyay, in his plea, alleged inconsistencies in the guidelines framed by various high courts for designation of advocates as senior lawyers and said that the High Courts be directed to modify them so that advocates with minimum 10 years of practice become eligible to apply for designation as seniors.

The top court, in its judgement, had laid down as many as 11 guidelines to effectively deal with the process of designating lawyers as seniors. “All matters relating to designation of senior advocates in the Supreme Court and in all the high courts of the country shall be dealt with by a Permanent Committee to be known as ‘Committee for Designation of Senior Advocates’,” it had said. The panel will be headed by the CJI and consist of two senior-most Judges of the apex court or “High Court(s), as may be,” and the Attorney General or the Advocate General of a state in case of a High Court will be its member, it had said. On giving the Bar representation, it had said the four Members of the Permanent Committee will nominate another Member of the Bar to be the fifth Member of the Permanent Committee. The committee shall have a permanent Secretariat, the composition of which will be decided by the CJI or “the Chief Justices of the High Courts, as may be, in consultation with the other Members of the Permanent Committee, it had said. The pleas on designating a lawyer as senior would be sent to the secretariat which would compile relevant data and information with regard to “the reputation, conduct, integrity of the Advocate(s) concerned including his/her participation in pro-bono work; reported judgements in which the concerned Advocate(s) had appeared; the number of such judgements for the last five years,” it had said. It had said the secretariat would collect the data and their sources for perusal and decision by the CJI-led committee.last_img read more

Bank of Canada estimates 60000 fewer jobs due to minimum wage increases

first_imgOTTAWA – The Bank of Canada estimates there will be about 60,000 fewer jobs by 2019 due to the increases in minimum wages across the country, but that labour income will be higher due to the increases.In examining the impact of the wage increases, the report estimated that the consumer price index could be boosted by about 0.1 percentage points on average and real gross domestic product could be cut by 0.1 per cent by early 2019.The number of jobs lost was based on a 0.3 per cent decline in the number of hours worked, while aggregate real wages were estimated to increase 0.7 per cent.The research paper by the staff at the central bank noted that if the average working hours declined following the increase in the minimum wage, the number of jobs lost would also be lower.The Bank of Canada estimated that about eight per cent of all employees work at minimum wage, a proportion that increases to 11 per cent if a threshold of five per cent above minimum wage is used.Ontario raised its minimum wage to $14 per hour on Jan. 1 from $11.60 and plans to increase it to $15 in 2019, while Alberta is expected to raise its minimum wage to $15 later this year.last_img read more

Putin and Erdogan in Turkey to mark key phase in pipeline

first_imgISTANBUL — Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan are in Istanbul to mark the completion of a key phase in a natural gas pipeline.The two leaders on Monday are marking the completion of the offshore part of TurkStream’s two lines that will carry natural gas from Russia to Turkey.The lines when finished are expected to supply Russian gas to European markets through Turkish territories. Together the two 930-kilometre (578-mile) lines via the Black Sea will carry 31.5 billion cubic meters (1.1 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas annually.Turkey relies on imports for its energy needs and Russia is its top supplier for natural gas. It bought 28 billion cubic meters last year. That gas is currently transported through another line under the Black Sea and the onshore West Line through Ukraine, which is mired in conflict with Russia.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Inaction on climate change now will cost us all in the future

“Inaction on climate change now will cost us all in the future,” ILO Director-General Guy Ryder said in his keynote address to the World of Work Summit taking place during the International Labour Conference, bringing together the agency’s member States at its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.Mr. Ryder underlined both the challenges and opportunities presented by a transition to greener economies, and kicked off this year’s summit that focused on climate change, ahead of a UN conference on the issue this December in Paris. “We are beginning to witness very clearly how the effects of climate change ripple through enterprises and labour markets,” he said. “We also see that this is different from one region to the other, across segments of the labour force, indeed from one occupation to another.”While some countries are struggling with persistent droughts, he said, others simply witness changes in the timing and rhythm of their agricultural and even their fishing seasons, affecting food production and security, and peoples’ incomes.“But we now also know that there is much potential for more and better jobs if we work towards sustainable development – so this is a debate about opportunity as well,” he said.The ILO chief kicked off a high-level panel on ‘Climate Change and the World of Work’ that discussed how governments, workers and employers can help build resilience and create solutions in pursuit of social justice, productive employment and sustainable enterprises, and ensure a just transition for all. “Young people expect us to leave behind a viable planet where they can enjoy a decent life and decent work,” he said.Addressing the younger generation, frequent UN collaborator Pharrell Mr. Williams, the Grammy-winning American singer and songwriter of, among others, the global hit Happy, called on the international community to tackle the dual challenges of climate change and youth unemployment. “I believe that climate change is one of the defining issues of our time, one that threatens our very existence on Earth,” said Williams in a video address at the Summit. “We’ve also got another serious problem on our hands: millions of young people who don’t have jobs, and don’t have access to the education and skills they need to get them.”Williams called on the key players of the world of work ? governments, employers and workers ? to ensure that green, decent jobs are right at the top of the agenda when the world meets at the climate change conference at the end of the year. read more

Record US coal output

first_imgEnd-of-year data reported by the US Energy Information Administration, shows 2006 set a new record for US coal production, marking the second consecutive year of record-breaking demand for US coal used by power and steel companies. According to the National Mining Association (NMA), the 1,052 Mt of coal mined in the US in 2006 topped the previous record set in 2005 by 2.5%. NMA President and CEO Kraig R. Naasz says hios organisation “expects continued year-over-year growth in coal production. Meanwhile, US steel production also increased by 2.5% over last year. Moderate declines in recent prices for minerals and metals do not obscure the strong global demand for copper, nickel and similar commodities mined in the US This demand underscores the powerful influence exerted by the global economy on US mineral and metals. “As the new congressional leadership sets its energy and economic agenda, leaders from both parties should recognize the continuing demand for coal and minerals critical to our economy — and the implications of any policies that might impair the ability of America’s mines to meet this demand.”For a copy of the statistical summary: read more

McManaman Van Dijk Salah injuries could derail Liverpools title hopes

first_imgLiverpool legend Steve McManaman believes their Premier League title hopes could be left in jeopardy if Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah got injuredThe Reds now lead by nine points from Tottenham, who lost 3-1 to Wolves, following Saturday’s 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal.Defending champions Manchester City are a further point behind in third, albeit with a game in hand against Southampton later today.Pep Guardiola’s side have endured a difficult month with injuries to some key players along with three defeats in their last four matches.And McManaman fears that Liverpool may find themselves in a similar struggle if they were to lose some of their own key men.“If Liverpool get a bad injury to Van Dijk or to Salah, at the same time, your thoughts start to change,” McManaman told BT Sport, via the Express.“Football is one of those things. When they say you have to take it game-by-game, that’s what you have to do. You have to hope everyone stays fit and the best team will win.“Of course Liverpool are absolutely flying at the moment but I’d still say Manchester City have got that little bit of an edge.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“They have got them at home next and they have won the league before.”The ex-Real Madrid midfielder is wary of placing too much expectation on the high-flying Reds.He added: “I don’t want to put too much pressure on Liverpool. Of course I want Liverpool to win the league, it goes without saying.“They are frightening at this moment but every year we pick out teams to win the elague, to not win the league, and you fall flat on your face three months later.“If it’s in April and they’ve got that much point difference, I’m quite happy to shout it from the rooftops but they’ve got a long way to go.”Although second-place Spurs don’t stand a chance due to their lack of squad depth.“No disrespect to Tottenham, I never thought they were in it,” said McManaman.“I always thought that their lack of depth in the squad would count against them.”last_img read more
