“In the face of the admission of the senior counsel for… IIPM today that IIPM is not entitled to confer any Degree, the prospectus issued by IIPM showing itself as conferring a Degree, is evidently false and misleading,” the court has remarked in its judgement.
The court has ordered IIPM to immediately remove from its website references to words that suggest it confers a degree recognised by the Indian educational system.
Planning for retirement is as important as planning for one’s career and marriage. Everybody wishes to have a secure, independent retirement life, where you would not depend on others for your needs. Investments and allocations are accordingly channelized in this direction to achieve the desired goals. The Employee Provident Fund (EPF), Employee Pension Scheme (EPS) and Public Provident Fund (PPF) are some of the popular products to invest for the retirement years.
In the past few months, radical changes have been introduced in these schemes. Let us have a look at them.

2) Bank account and PF portability
3) Higher PF wage ceiling
4) Minimum monthly pension

Better hurry, only a day left to register!
It doesn’t matter how busy you are. Everyone can spare 10 minutes of their day…especially if it may help you live longer. And that’s just what this natural solution may help you do.
D.C. Lee is an assistant professor of kinesiology at Iowa State. He led a team of researchers that looked at data from over 55,000 adults. And it was a diverse group to say the least. Subjects were between 18 and 100 years-old.
Mr. Lee and his team found that people in one subgroup were 45% less likely to die from heart complications. In fact, they were 30% less likely to die in general.1 And they all had one thing in common…
They were all runners.
On average they lived three years longer than non-runners. But that’s not the only good news researchers revealed. They also found that the benefits were the same regardless of how many hours subjects ran in a week.2
People who ran for just 10 minutes a day—even at slower speeds—reduced their risk of death from heart complications by 50% compared to non-runners.3 That’s an extra 5% higher than the average for all runners. And some subjects ran for three hours—or more—a week.

In a significant decision Central Information Commission (CIC) has ruled that unless proved that record was destroyed as per the prescribed rules of destruction/ retention policy, it is deemed that record continues to be held by public authority. The decision has been posted at out wiki Segment, for those who want to use it as a reference. You can visit out wiki article here: Missing Files under RTI Act.
Claim of file missing or not traceable has no legality as it is not recognized as exception by RTI Act. By practice ‘missing file’ cannot be read into as exception in addition to exceptions prescribed by RTI Act. It amounts to breach of Public Records Act, 1993 and punishable with imprisonment up to a term of five years or with fine or both.
Public Authority has a duty to initiate action for this kind of loss of public record, in the form of ‘not traceable’ or ‘missing’. The Public Authority also has a duty to designate an officer as Records Officer and protect the records. A thorough search for the file, inquiry to find out public servant responsible, disciplinary action and action under Public Records Act, reconstruction of alternative file, relief to the person affected by the loss of file are the basic actions the Public Authority is legitimately expected to perform.
After all, it is quite possible that the required information may be located if a thorough search is made in which event, it could be possible to supply it to the applicant.
Fear of disciplinary action, against the person responsible for loss of the information, will also work as a deterrence against the willful suppression of the information, by vested interests. It would also be open to the Commission, to make an inquiry itself instead of directing an inquiry by the department/office concerned.
