Use of fake notes to be treated as terror act

Union home ministry proposes to include fake Indian currency notes (FICN) in the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act

Alarmed by the rising use of fake currencies, the Union home ministry has decided to treat it as an act of terrorism.

Accordingly, it proposes to include FICN in the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, or UAPA, which entails more stringent provisions. Not only will it attract more punitive action, bail will also be more difficult to obtain.

Only terrorist organizations and people associated with them are currently covered under the Act.

Fake currency is among the “biggest threats” facing the country, said R.K. Singh, Union home secretary. That’s why “we are planning to include this in UAPA”.

Singh added: “FICN circulation is not done by local gangsters. The quality of (fake notes) suggest that state actors are behind it. These state actors are getting it executed through non-state actors.”

RBI Operationalises Central Registry to prevent property loan frauds

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced the operationalisation of a central registry that will have details of all properties against which loans have been taken.

Initially transactions relating to securitisation and reconstruction of financial assets and those relating to mortgage by deposit of title deeds to secure any loan or advances granted by banks and financial institutions, as defined under the SARFAESI Act, are to be registered in the Central Registry. The records maintained by the Central Registry will be available for search by any lender or any other person desirous of dealing with the property.

Availability of such records would prevent frauds involving multiple lending against the security of same property as well as fraudulent sale of property without disclosing the security interest over such property, the RBI said in a statement.

Womens are Entitled to Equal Property Rights

The Supreme Court ruled that the female inheritors would have succession rights and the same liabilities fastened on the property along with the male members.

A Hindu woman or girl will have equal property rights along with other male relatives for any partition made in intestate succession after September 2005, the Supreme Court has ruled.

A bench of justices R. M. Lodha and Jagdish Singh Khehar in a judgment said that under the Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005, the daughters are entitled to equal inheritance rights along with other male siblings, which was not available to them prior to the amendment.

The apex court said the female inheritors would not only have the succession rights but also the same liabilities fastened on the property along with the male members.

“The new Section 6 provides for parity of rights in the coparcenary property among male and female members of a joint Hindu family on and from 9 September 2005. The legislature has now conferred substantive right in favor of the daughters.

“According to the new Section 6, the daughter of a coparcener becomes a coparcener by birth in her own rights and liabilities in the same manner as the son. The declaration in Section 6 that the daughter of the coparcener shall have same rights and liabilities in the coparcenary property as she would have been a son is unambiguous and unequivocal,” Justice Lodha, writing the judgment, said.

The term coparcener refers to the equal inheritance right of a person in a property.

The apex court passed the ruling while upholding the appeal filed by Ganduri Koteshwaramma, daughter of late Chakiri Venkata Swamy, challenging the Andhra Pradesh High Court’s decision not to recognize equal property rights of women along with their male siblings.

“Psycho-terrorism” word aptly used to the illegal recovery methods, adopted by the Financial Institutions. Though the RBI, BCSBI, and IBA are issuing guidelines, none of the Financial Institutions are following these guidelines. Large number of specific reports are available through out the country in the Media &Press, apart from our representation to the Government and RBI. Even though the BCSBI has issued Code of Conduct for the recovery of dues and repossession of securities. The Financial Institutions hardly follow the Codes and guidelines. As an Association we cannot go on filing cases against each and every wrong. Then we have to file at least 100 cases a day. As a Voluntary Association, it is impossible. We have come across Financial Institutions spending huge money towards legal expenses by using the public money by making appeals after appeals against the customers. The guidelines are there only on paper and the Financial Institutions undertaking to follow the guidelines in writing but in practice they are thrown to the winds. As we failed to get response from the controlling authorities, as a final step, we have asked all our members to apply “Newton’s 3rd Law” i.e. For every action, there is equal and opposite reaction. There is no need to explain the method used by the Financial Institutions. It is in the interest of all, firm action needs to be taken against the erring Financial Institutions. Otherwise, there will be only street fights.

Think before Divorce

Before moving on with what you need to know about divorce, the next few paragraphs will ask you to look before you leap if you find yourself wanting out of your marriage. Choosing to divorce might ultimately be your decision, but it should be one made in a state of calm with little doubt and few regrets.

When someone approaches me and says he or she wants a divorce, my first reaction is to say, “Are you sure?” Decisions made in haste can take on lives of their own, and before you know it, there may be no turning back to save your marriage. Deep down we all know when we are at peace with the decisions we’ve made- big and small. Sometimes we listen to our gut and sometimes we don’t.

When we make decisions and take action while our doubt mechanism is in full gear, we know we will eventually pay for it. To avoid this scenario, respect the little voice inside you, if it says “wait.” Your gut instinct is asking you to reevaluate the situation before making your decision. Before making this significant change in your life take a good look at yourself and your concept of marriage.

When you’re looking at the choice to divorce, forget all about the idea of the romantic fairy tale. It’s time to take a good look at marriage and understand what it really takes to make this type of partnership work. Depending on how realistic and honest you are when evaluating your situation, when it comes to a divorce, you may find that the grass may not always be greener on the other side. For a good dose of reality, sit down and write out a pro and con list of staying married vs. the realities of divorce and being single.

Consider the following: children, your career status and ability to make money, finances, life style changes, cost of divorce, being single again and the threat of sexually transmitted diseases once you’re back on the dating circuit. (You may be thinking, “I never want to date again, but trust me, you will.)

Consider the following:

Have you gone to marriage counseling?
Have you and your spouse taken the time to talk and isolate the real problems of the marriage?
Do you really listen to each other or just nag, complain and tune out?
How well do you compromise and try to find time for enjoying quality time together?
How productive or destructive are your methods of fighting?
Do you kiss and make up without holding grudges?
Are you teammates working toward the same goals?
Are you both willing to work on your issues together?

Writing out the answers to these questions will help guide you in making an educated, rational decision. Divorce is difficult, but it might be your best option and worth the temporary discomfort of transitioning into a new life. The process of honest evaluation will help you experience more peace and have fewer doubts regardless of your decision.

Steep rise in divorce cases in Chennai

Tamil Nadu capital Chennai is witnessing a steep rise in divorce cases, with figures having doubled since last year.
A growing awareness about their rights is convincing people to rush to family courts to file cases of separation and divorce, which was not the case earlier.
Chennai’s three family courts are currently dealing with over 3000 divorce cases, a majority of which have filed under the Hindu Marriage Act. Last year, these courts dealt with about 1500 cases.
“I got married in 1984 and he divorced me in 1988 through a lower court. He has a relationship with another woman. I got an order in my favour in the higher court. I have been going to the courts since then. My son, who was a kid then, has completed his graduation from an engineering college.
I filed a petition to live with him (my husband), but he did not accept it as he has an affair with another woman. Now, I have applied for settlement that too is not getting over” said Sujatha, a divorce petitioner.
Advocates feel that children are the ones who get affected the most when a marriage breaks up.
“In every break up, you cannot have happiness. Obviously, there is someone who’s going to be affected, particularly when there are children in the family. Undoubtedly, children are going to be affected. Collectively, if parents are going to take a decision in the welfare of the children, then there may be reconciliation,” said Lincoln S.Bastin, an advocate.
The breaking up of the joint family system, marriages of choice, late marriages, absence of pre- marital and post marital counseling, economic independence and poor marital values are some of the reasons cited for failed marriages.
“The reason for this, I feel, one is the break up of the joint family system. When there was a joint family system, people could ventilate their feelings among their relations and there was some way of also compromising within the family itself,” said Mohamed Yusuff, an advocate.
Advocates also say poor tolerance levels contribute to the collapse of a marriage.
“Definitely, tolerance levels have gone down because of our … attitude, exposure to different ideologies, western culture and norms and late marriages. We have a set of ideas.
The parents at times are the reason for a marital break up. The feeling that the spouse of their son or daughter has taken away from them what is due to them, leads parents in some cases to encourage minor differences between the couple.
According to a survey, almost 70 per cent of the divorce cases involve couples below 35 years of age.
