Jan 11, 2013

In a landmark order that will impact the more than 1.50 lakh DUI (driving under influence) cases pending in courts across Maharashtra, the Bombay high court has ruled that drunken driving is a non-cognizable offence. Justice Abhay Thipsay also directed the magistrate to ensure that the accused in such cases is furnished with all the material against him.

The order means that while the offence remains non-cognizable-a less grave provision of the law- it will help the police clamp down on drunken driving without having to go through the lengthy process of lodging an FIR, filing a charge sheet and producing strong evidence for a proper trial….

SC order to cripple finance mafia, reduce auto cost

Nov 12, 2011

NEW DELHI: Friday’s Supreme Court order will come as a relief for thousands driving autorickshaws on rent in the city. The lack of permits and an increasing number of drivers looking to make their living from this para-transit had created an artificial scarcity, pushing up the price of the TSR and bringing down the income of the drivers drastically.
