MANOJ B. PATEL posted a topic in Discussions on RTINew Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday took exception to the fact that despite its ruling that governments should not insist on the possession of Aadhaar card for the disbursal of benefits under the social welfare schemes, there were states that were flouting its order. A bench of Justice J Chelameswar, Justice SA Bobde and Justice C Nagappan expressed its concern over states acting in breach of its interim order passed in September 2013 and reiterated in March this year in this regard. At the outset of the hearing, Justice Chelameswar pointed to court's earlier order asking the central and state governments and their agencies not to link the disbursal of benefits under various social welfare schemes with Aadhaar card.Read more at; Why are states still insisting on Aadhar card, asks SC | Zee News

[h=1]Bring new law in 6 months for protection of witnesses: HC tells Maharashtra govt[/h] Mumbai: The Bombay High Court Tuesday directed the Maharashtra government to frame a new law within six months for protection of witnesses and also consider bringing whistleblowers and RTI activists under its purview. The government had last week informed the High Court that instead of a policy, it would come out with a law to provide protection to witnesses in sensitive cases. A draft of the proposed law was also submitted to the court. The issue of protection to witnesses, whistleblowers and activists was taken up suo moto (on its own) by the court after the murder of RTI activist Satish Shetty. The court was today informed that a committee has been formed to look into the issue and a law for the protection of witnesses would be enacted soon. Amicus curie (appointed to assist the court) Dinyar Madon, however, submitted that the new Maharashtra Witness Protection Act will not provide protection to whistleblowers and activists and may give cover only to witnesses in sensitive cases. A division bench of Justices A S Oka and A K Menon then asked the government to consider including whistleblowers and activists also under the purview of new law. The court directed the government to enact the new law within six months. In October 2014, the High Court, while ordering the government to frame a fresh policy, had also directed that protection should be provided immediately to whistleblowers and witnesses even during the investigation stage, if such a person makes a request for protection.
