As the holiday shopping season is set to heat up, the Evansville Police Department is warning residents, especially women, about groups of individuals going from store to store looking for potential targets to steal while shopping.

A “recent increase in the theft of wallets and credit cards”

In a Facebook post Monday, the Department issued a warning to residents about a “recent spike in [the] theft of wallets and credit cards” nationwide who have traveled to the Evansville area over the past year. The statement said the thefts involve a pair or small group of individuals who enter outlets targeting women and other people who carry purses and place in their carts. For example, in the area where a child would be sitting. Once they find their target, one of the thieves will approach the woman and distract her in some way.While the distraction is taking place, another individual in the group walks up to the cart and steals the purse or takes the person’s wallet .Once the victim realizes what happened, the thieves are long gone and use their credit cards to buy thousands of dollars worth of prepaid gift cards.

The ministry went on to say that the thieves are usually not from the area and travel from town to town committing the crime again and again, making them difficult to track and bring to justice. The department says it is working with several area stores “and several federal agencies to catch these criminals and make it harder to buy large amounts of gift cards with stolen credit cards.”

How to avoid becoming a victim

To prevent these thieves from making you their next target, the Department offers the following advice:

  • Take extra precautions to secure your purse or wallet while shopping. Simply closing your purse might be enough to deter some of these criminals.
  • Carry your purse or wallet with you when shopping
  • Never leave it unattended in your shopping cart, especially if it is engaged in conversation by another buyer.
  • If you choose to leave your purse in your car, store it in your trunk or another location inaccessible to thieves who also target parked cars.

In the event that you are the victim of a theft during your purchases, the Department advises that you immediately freeze the credit cards and contact 911.

FHRAI writes to SEBI to stop OYO from launching IPO after ICC sanction https://erinsrays.com/fhrai-writes-to-sebi-to-stop-oyo-from-launching-ipo-after-icc-sanction/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 09:42:39 +0000 https://erinsrays.com/fhrai-writes-to-sebi-to-stop-oyo-from-launching-ipo-after-icc-sanction/ The Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Associations of India said on Tuesday it had written to SEBI to stop OYO from going public following a sanction imposed by India’s Competition Commission.

The Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Associations of India said on Tuesday it had written to SEBI to stop OYO from going public following a sanction imposed by India’s Competition Commission. India to hospitality and travel technology company for unfair business practices.

OYO, however, said the Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI) was misrepresenting the ICC order and the letter to the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) was aimed at misappropriating the attention of the FHRAI executive committee meeting held as void. and void by the NCLT, which also ordered a general meeting of the hospitality industry body under judicial supervision.

In October this year, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) imposed penalties totaling more than Rs 392 crore on online travel agencies MakeMyTrip, Goibibo and hospitality service provider OYO for be engaged in unfair commercial practices.

“Now that OYO has been found guilty of engaging in anti-competitive and unfair business practices thereby affecting the small hotel business and suppressing competition, it is imperative that its IPO (initial public offering) not be permitted in the interest of the hospitality industry, consumers and potential investors,” the FHRAI said in a statement.

Additionally, the association said it had asked “SEBI to halt/ban OYO’s IPO efforts with immediate effect.”

The hospitality industry body alleged that “OYO is responsible for the systemic depredation of budget segment hospitality and its market as a means to achieve a billion dollar theoretical valuation, which is a serious source of concern for the country’s hotel ecosystem”.

When contacted, a spokesperson for OYO said, “FHRAI also completely misrepresents the CCI order, claiming (aggregators have been) ‘known to engage in predatory pricing, commission exorbitant and unfair charges, misrepresentation of information, and arbitrarily levied service charges. “We hope the regulator will take note of this willful misrepresentation of its order.”

“FHRAI is again resorting to sensationally incorrect statements” to distract from “the fact that NCLT held the FHRAI executive committee meeting as null and void, ordered new elections and ordered a general meeting supervised by a court in the presence of a court-appointed person,” the spokesperson said.

In October 2021, OYO filed preliminary documents with Sebi to raise Rs 8,430 crore through an initial share sale. So far, it has not launched an IPO, citing the volatile nature of the market.

FHRAI said in 2019 that it had filed a complaint against OYO and Make My Trip-Goibibo with the ICC and alleged that OYO’s systemic depredation of economy segment hotels had caused serious distress to the country’s hotel sector.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – In an effort to bridge the digital divide, SiFi Networks and city officials recently announced a FiberCity® Aid program for low-income residents.

Shortly after officials launched the all-fiber Saratoga Springs FiberCity® network, Saratoga Springs Public Works Commissioner Jason Golub said SiFi Networks and GigabitNow will provide Gigabit-speed fiber internet service to reduced cost for the 700 addresses managed by the city’s housing authority.

Residents residing in Housing Authority properties will have access to fiber service with Gigabit speeds – among the fastest available in the United States – at a monthly price reduction of 50%. Overall, it is estimated that these households will save around $30,000 per month or $350,000 per year across the entire Housing Authority portfolio.

The Commissioner also announced that Housing Authority offices will also receive a discounted service, a benefit for all ratepayers.

“The community is already realizing the benefits of bringing FiberCity® to Saratoga Springs,” Golub said in a press release. “One of my goals is to connect all of our residents to opportunity. When fully built in 2024, every resident will have access to fast, affordable, and reliable fiber optic service. Closing our city’s digital divide means connecting residents to jobs, education, healthcare and other services here or anywhere in the world, seamlessly.

“We connect the whole community to opportunity.”

SiFi Networks spokesperson Bob Knight added, “We are very pleased to partner with the City of Saratoga Springs in supporting Commissioner Golub’s vision for digital equity for the entire community. As the network is being built across the city, every home, business and institution in Saratoga Springs will have equal access to high-speed fiber, ushering in a new era of opportunity.

He continued, “And because we’re building an Open Access network, multiple vendors will be competing for customers on FiberCity®, resulting in more competitive pricing, reliable service, and Gigabit speeds, a first in the state of New York.

According to Paul Feldman, executive director of the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority, 700 units under his group’s management are eligible for SiFi’s FiberCity® Aid program.

“Providing a deeply discounted service to these families will change lives. I applaud the vision and efforts of Commissioner Golub, SiFi Networks and GigabitNow who have worked to ensure that all Saratogians have affordable access to ultra-high-speed internet,” he said in the statement, “ Helping deserving households participate in the digital economy and enjoy the same benefits as their friends and neighbors with more means is a game-changer for all of us.

Construction of the Saratoga Springs FiberCity® network began earlier this year.

The first households will have switched on fiber in the fall of 2023 and all households in the city should have the service by the end of 2024. Service providers like GigabitNow will advertise prices closer to the switched on network to help prevent city ​​predatory price offers. current internet service providers.

When you talk about a crime that has to do with children, things get serious very quickly, and a man from Malakoff, Texas is finding out. The suspect in this case is Blake Ethan Phillips, 22, and he is currently in police custody.

Going through public records released by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office, it appears that Phillips was originally charged with possession with intent to distribute child pornography on March 18.e2022. This investigation was ongoing as of April 25e2022, Phillips is charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography and 10 counts of possession with intent to distribute child pornography.

What is the penalty for possession of child pornography in Texas?

Beyond the state of Texas, possession of child pornography is illegal under federal law and is punishable by up to 20 years in prison on each count. In this case, there are also charges of intent to distribute child pornography, which will add additional punishment. The penalty for transporting child pornography (including mailing or shipping) carries a mandatory 5-year sentence and a maximum 20-year sentence for each charge.

Is there a chance he’ll get out of jail?

After being arraigned, Phillips has $40,000 bond on each of the twenty charges he currently faces. That means his bail would be $800,000. While that’s a lot of money to get out of jail, it’s possible he could be released pending trial. Phillips is innocent until proven guilty in court.

A few months ago, Reliance Industries (RIL) announced plans to revive the iconic soda brand of yesteryear, Campa Cola. Knowing what kind of market disruptor RIL is, this move has yet to move Coke and Pepsi.

But just before Diwali, when RIL revealed its plans to make a splash in the financial services industry, it caught everyone’s attention. Despite a failed attempt – RIL’s joint venture with US major DE Shaw to create a financial services entity and the lack of clarity on where the banking business Jio Payments Bank is headed – experts are confident. But succeeding the third time around will depend on what RIL has learned from the past and which playbook he chooses.

Jio Financial Services (JFS) plans to be in all spheres of business – be it lending, insurance, asset management or brokerage. As noted industry expert Ashvin Parekh says, this is a perfect plan because financial services make sense for large conglomerates. “Unlike manufacturing, it is virtually recession proof and has the ability to generate consistent returns,” he explains.

With RIL using the pandemic to attract big investors such as Google and Facebook to Jio platforms and reduce debt to reasonably comfortable levels, “it appears that entry into the financial sector was well planned,” he adds. . Interestingly, JFS would “acquire liquid assets to provide adequate regulatory capital for consumer and merchant lending,” while being open to organic growth, joint venture partnerships, and inorganic opportunities.

In short, the plan is to stick to RIL’s tested playbook – have a wide range of services and build at scale. But over the years it has been established that neither factor is relevant if the end game is not in sight.

HDFC and Edelweiss are examples of how, in the financial services industry, size or spectrum doesn’t matter beyond a point. Despite being the largest mortgage lender, for operational and regulatory reasons the lender is merging with its banking arm to stay relevant in the game.

Therefore, if RIL chooses to climb the rankings through the inorganic route, it could attract more attention from the regulator, who has not yet accepted the idea of ​​​​allowing business houses in the banking area. Therefore, pruning itself can become counterproductive.

Going the Edelweiss path of pocketing every pie in the industry would leave RIL with the question of what next, a question that Edelweiss and many of his peers face. Changing industry dynamics and varying risk management frameworks no longer complement each other and no longer ensure that an entity is a manufacturer of many financial products.

Although RIL has mastered the art of working in regulated businesses, financial services, particularly lending, are somewhat unique. There are regulations that state outright what can and cannot be done, and market forces that act as unspoken rules.

For example, predatory pricing or promotional pricing cannot be bait to attract customers. When money is borrowed at a certain cost, it must be lent out at a higher rate for the business to make sense. Even by regulation, it is not possible to lend below the repo rate. The ability to transpire capital and leverage invariably acts as a natural trade barrier.

Therefore, unlike a telecom sector where pricing was a powerful weapon, which helped cut across different layers of the market, in finance it will not work in lending; not even in the insurance sector, because if the pricing is not done well, the risk management framework may be compromised. Although AMCs and brokerage firms may be exceptions, they remain the peripherals of the financial services industry, not the core.

There are no shortcuts to market penetration, and RIL must be prepared for a painstaking process. Trying to reduce time by inorganic means has its limits. The cost of integrating loan books and underwriting practices, while retaining the customer base and employee base, can outweigh the cost of building a business organically. This is one reason why mergers and acquisitions are not a common feature in the financial services space.

RIL’s telecom strategy has its limits if it is to be extended to the financial services space. Instead, the ingredient for success may lie in its retail business. Established long before telecom operations, Reliance Retail has taken more than a decade to find its footing in the market. Even as critics dismissed him as a non-starter, he quietly acquired the trademark rights to numerous international labels, and now he’s built a formidable piece.

Similarly, JFS’s strength lies in operating RIL’s distribution network. To be lucky for the third time, JFS must choose his battlefield wisely. Where existing players are open to customizing products to meet the needs of borrowers, whether retail or corporate, and doing so with loans and insurance products, it may not be makes sense for JFS to operate in the same company.

But ensuring tremendous reach remains a challenge, and this is where JFS has a monetizable opportunity. Given its distribution network, it has the potential to be a formidable aggregator or distributor of financial products, and this option can prove to be much more lucrative than wanting to endorse the manufacturer’s hat.

Play the competition

RIL’s entry into the telecommunications industry happened just when the industry was at its peak and then disrupted the market using pricing. Financial services, in a sense, are at a similar stage. While reasonable innovation has occurred on the product side, bringing it to the masses or last mile availability is a challenge.

This is also where big tech and fintech are fully in play. Traditional banks and lenders have not had an easy task of replicating the tech game, where RIL has an edge. But then, for the first time, RIL would be pitted against national and global majors, and its ability to strike the right balance between growth, quality and customer retention will be tested. Ultimately, does RIL envision the financial services industry for the big game or as a source of existing big games? It will determine if he can be lucky for the third time and only time will tell.

2024 Triumph Street Triple 765 range. Left to right, Moto2, RS, R Edition.

Triumph has unveiled its heavily updated 2024 Street Triple 765 range, promising to bring a new level of performance and technology to its family of mid-weight naked sportbikes. Beyond the aesthetic refresh, the 765cc three-cylinder engine has received numerous upgrades, all with the aim of improving power and responsiveness. That’s not all, as the Street Triple now features IMU-supported electronics, bringing niceties like cornering ABS and cruise control to the platform for the first time. lean angle sensitive traction.2022 Triumph Street Triple 765 range first look: specsThe 2024 Triumph Street Triple 765 range consists of a trio of motorcycles with varying specifications and components, aiming to satisfy customers from all walks of life. A road-focused R model returns, as does the premium, aggressive RS trim. A limited-edition Street Triple 765 Moto2 is new to the party, armed with top-level equipment and a circuit-ready riding position. We can’t wait to take the new Street Triples for a spin. Until we do, we’ll bring you the highlights!

  1. Drawing on Triumph’s Moto2 experience, the 765cc three-cylinder engine develops more power. Looking at the spec sheet, the lovely triple gained four ponies and a single torque point, taking peak figures to 128 horsepower at 12,000 rpm (RS and Moto2 only) and 59 lb-ft of torque at 9,500 rpm. New pistons, wrist pins and connecting rods are slid into a redesigned combustion chamber, allowing for a higher compression ratio of 13.25:1. A high-flow intake port feeds new valves and camshafts that increase valve lift, increasing power gains.
Triumph Street Triple 765 R 2024
  1. The 2024 Striples get an extra dose of punch as the revs increase with noticeable gains near redline. The new hardware unlocks more mid-range and top-end power, with most updated triples outputting above 7500 rpm, according to the dyno chart provided by the British brand. This top-end rush will come in handy on any race track or when sprinting through canyons.
  1. The Street Triple R features its own unique melody state. Its road-focused mission and spec doesn’t require the same level of engine performance as its siblings. Of course, it still reaps the benefits of engine upgrades by gaining some peak ponies and torque, raising the bar to 118 horsepower at 11,500 rpm.
  1. Power up faster with shorter gears. The engineers wanted a little more snap from the Spicy Striple. To do this, they shortened the final drive and transmission ratios above first gear. This should add up to an even more responsive Street Triple, especially offline.

2022 Triumph Street Triple 765 range first look: internal engine updates

  1. The latest Triumph High/Low Quickshifter is fitted to the new 2024 Street Triple 765s. Whether on the Moto R, RS or Moto2 Limited Edition, you’ll enjoy fast, two-way shifting. Although not new to the RS models, it is the brand’s latest generation QS technology.
  1. A new exhaust is part of the package. The revised muffler mimics the Striple’s sharp lines, and Triumph says its new exhaust is smoother; indeed, some credit is due to the new single-catalyst system.
  1. Advanced rider aids enhance the Street Triple 765 platform. While we were impressed with the TC in our 2020 Triumph Speed ​​Triple 765 RS test, it’s hard to argue with the IMU-backed driver aids. The brand’s latest four-stage traction control systems, two-stage cornering ABS and wheel control systems are standard on all models, putting the new Striple’s electronics on par with the powerful Speed ​​Triple 1200 RS and Speed ​​Triple 1200 RR.

2022 Triumph Street Triple 765 range first look: TFT dashboard

  1. Selectable riding modes let you change settings on the fly. According to the standard electronic fanfare of Triumph sport models, we work with Road, Rain, Sport, Rider (customizable mode) and Track when talking about the top models. The R does well with Road, Rain, Sport and the customizable Rider mode. Switching to a different mode will change the throttle map and various previously mentioned driving aids. Cruise control is optional.
  1. Different toppings get different dashes. The top-end RS and Moto2 editions get a five-inch color TFT display, with the Moto2 getting a single splash screen. Meanwhile, standard R modes use a dual-panel LCD/TFT hybrid display.
  1. The 2024 RS and Moto2 Edition models feature more aggressive geometry. The RS and Moto2 editions are ready to tackle any track day in style. With that in mind, Triumph wanted to tease the Speed ​​Triple’s stable chassis agility a bit more. So Triumph has raised the rear ride heights of each bike, gradually increasing the rake – 0.7 degrees for the RS and 0.9 degrees for the Moto2 edition, compared to the 2020 RS, which was already quite sporty. Meanwhile, the Model R continues its tradition of having a more relaxed geometry than its siblings. Of course, this sportier geometry has increased the seat heights of the RS and Moto2. For those with shorter inseams, Triumph offers low seat options.
2024 Triumph Street Triple Moto2 Edition
  1. The suspension is adapted to the frame. No matter the model, you get fully adjustable straps at each end. However, Triumph has equipped each model with a kit suitable for its purpose. The R uses a Showa Single Function Fork (SFF) and Showa shock, which will be willing and capable of hitting the streets. The RS again uses a sleeker Showa Big Piston (BPF) fork and Öhlins STX40 shock, while the Moto2 edition classifies the joint with a top-end Öhlins NIX30 fork and Öhlins STX40 shock.
  1. A new ergonomics is in store. Triumph designers felt we could use more leverage behind the bars on its latest R and RS models, delivering handlebars nearly half an inch longer than before. The race-inspired Moto2 edition wears that pedigree as a badge of honor and sporty clip-on handlebars that are 3.15 inches lower and almost two inches further forward for that race-replica seating position. All that’s missing is a Daytona fairing, and you’d have a thoroughbred supersport in your hands.
  1. Brembo once again brings the firepower. Returning to the fold is the jaw-droppingly wide-ratio, adjustable Brembo MCS master cylinder on the sportier models. Additionally, Brembo Stylema calipers are in the mix up front. Of course, the R manages to keep things reasonable with the tried and tested Brembo M4.32 calipers.
Triumph Street Triple 765 RS 2024
  1. Sharper looks are in focus. The designers considered almost every aspect of the Speed ​​Triple and doubled down on its angular appearance. Then leaned into its aggressive, predatory stance, with the LED headlight still sporting a frowning face. The Moto2 edition takes things up a notch, with a host of carbon fiber bits for that slicker appearance.
  1. The Moto2 Limited Edition is precisely that – limited. Triumph has reason to be proud of its involvement as a specific engine supplier to the Moto2 World Championship, and what better way to promote this than with 1530 units available worldwide. To be exact, 765 individually numbered units will be available in each unique colourway: Triumph Racing Yellow and Crystal White.
  1. The 2024 Street Triple 765s will arrive in dealerships in April and June 2023. We understand that there may be some confusion with model years, but let’s not get confused about the competitive pricing of these bikes. The Street Triple R is $9999, the Street Triple RS is $12,595, and the Street Triple 765 Moto2 Edition is $15,395.

Express press service

NEW DELHI: After the release of Cloudtail, once the biggest seller in its Indian market, e-commerce giant Amazon has decided to shut down Appario Retail and delist it as a seller within the next 12 months.
Appario is operated under Frontizo Business Services – a joint venture between Amazon and Patni Group and is currently one of the platform’s leading sellers.

“Amazon and India’s Patni Group, owned by Zodiac Wealth Management LLP, have agreed to renew their joint venture, Frontizo Business Services Private Limited. The partners have decided that Appario Retail Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Frontizo, will cease to be a seller on amazon.in and amazon.in/business for the next 12 months. The partners will continue to explore new business opportunities, including helping businesses across India to strengthen their online presence,” according to a joint media statement released by Patni Group and Amazon on Monday.

The development comes amid a tightening grip by the Indian government and local regularity bodies to weed out predatory pricing from big players and support smaller sellers on e-commerce platforms. At the center of this issue is the conflict of interest as Amazon and Flipkart, in addition to licensing product listings, also have stakes in certain sellers who register on their platforms.

An official source with knowledge of Appario’s delisting said the decision was made to avoid any conflict of interest and was made voluntarily. Last year, India’s Supreme Court ruled that Walmart-owned Amazon and Flipkart faced antitrust investigations ordered against them in the country.

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) earlier this year conducted raids on the premises of flagship sellers Amazon and Flipkart in Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai to investigate complaints of predatory pricing and deep discounts. Companies raided include Cloudtail, a joint venture between Amazon and NR Narayana Murthy’s Catamaran, and Appario Retail.

Federal Trade Commission to explore rule cracking down on ‘unwanted’ fees https://erinsrays.com/federal-trade-commission-to-explore-rule-cracking-down-on-unwanted-fees/ Sat, 29 Oct 2022 00:55:27 +0000 https://erinsrays.com/federal-trade-commission-to-explore-rule-cracking-down-on-unwanted-fees/ LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Could we soon see the end of resort fees?

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Could we soon see the end of resort fees? This week, President Joe Biden said he was going after hidden “junk fees,” including those charged at Strip resorts, ordering the Federal Trade Commission to investigate.

In Las Vegas, the majority of resorts on the Strip charge an average resort fee of around $40 per night.

President Biden has also said his administration will target “hidden fees” on concert and airline tickets and even bank overdraft fees that he says can weaken the economy.

The Federal Trade Commission has voted to start a regulatory process to prevent “junk fees,” but it’s unclear when or how it will actually affect the Las Vegas Valley.

Local experts such as gaming historian David Schwartz at UNLV said if the change were made, resorts would likely raise their rates.

“I think it will provide more transparency in pricing, which is generally a good thing, and it will just give people a better idea of ​​what they’re getting into when they go to book,” Schwartz said.

8 News Now spoke to tourists on the Las Vegas Strip, like Mike Haske, who said higher upfront prices would change the way they book their vacations.

“They sell you $8 a night or $20 a night and then it’s ‘Oh, by the way, you have the resort fee,'” Haske said.

Many people 8 News Now spoke to said they chose to stay on Airbnb to avoid resort fees on the Strip. For the most part, hosts cannot charge resort fees unless they manage multiple properties and the company has approved it.

On its website, the White House has listed examples of what it considers to be “hidden fees” or “junk fees”.

Definition of “unwanted” charges

  • Mandatory fees that often hide the total price – Some sellers publish a low price and then add a mandatory fee later, at the “back-end” of the purchase process or when a consumer tries to cancel the service. An example is the “service charge” added to the cost of a ticket to a concert or sporting event.
  • Surprise fees that consumers are informed about after purchase – Surprise fees that consumers do not expect – and which may not be mandatory – also complicate the comparison and can weigh on household finances. Surprise hospital bills from out-of-network doctors at in-network hospitals and airline “foster care fees” are prime examples.
  • Operating or eviction costs. Excessive fees that target consumers who have limited alternative options – because they are locked into a product or service, or because they are otherwise economically vulnerable – can also impose a financial burden. As the CFPB explains, one sign of operating costs is that they “far exceed the marginal cost of the service they claim to cover.” Bank overdraft fees, which far exceed the bank’s cost of credit, and surprise “break fees” are prime examples.
  • Fraudulent charges. Some charges involve outright fraud or misrepresentation by the seller. An example is advertising a “no-fee” bank account which, in practice, incurs significant fees.

In this week’s review of court judgments, we look at the Madhya Pradesh High Court’s verdict reducing the sentence of a convict for raping a minor child, the Karnataka High Court’s guidelines on compensation of loan outstanding by employee gratuity, J&K&L’s High Court observation of domestic violence claim and the Competition Commission of India’s imposition of sanctions on companies for their practices anti-competitive.

Karnataka HC: Bank employee gratuity cannot be adjusted on their outstanding loan

The Single Judge Bench of Judge Suraj Govindaraj dismissed a motion filed by Canara Bank and held that the amount of gratuity payable to an employee could not be adjusted by the bank with the amount of its outstanding loan.

In the case, M/S Canara Bank v Mr. Shantha Kumarithe respondent’s husband in the case, joined Canara Bank in 1975 as a peon and was later promoted to clerk in 1987.

He received a housing loan which was repaid from time to time. In 2005, disciplinary proceedings were initiated against him with allegations of serious misconduct. The mandatory retirement sentence was handed down in 2006.

He filed a request for release of the gratuity amount, which was denied. He approached the supervisory authority to ask for instructions to make the payments. The bank said there were contributions receivable for the housing loan as well as to the Staff Provident Fund account. Consequently, these contributions must be adjusted according to the amount of the gratuity.

The bench noted that there is special treatment for the gratuity payment, both under Gratuity Payment Act and also under Code of Civil Procedure, 1908. According to them, the gratuity received special protection and the amount of the gratuity cannot be attached.

The court heard the petition, in which the bank sought to adjust a sum of approximately Rs. 9.85 lakhs for a housing loan and Rs. 1.29 lakhs because of the Welfare Fund debt. be staff. She observed that while the Staff Provident Fund falls under the terms of service area, the home loan is a different proposition. The terms of the loan agreement, which is a commercial transaction between the bank and the debtor, govern the home loan. This is regardless of whether the debtor is an employee of the bank.

The court also noted that the employee did not apply for the gratuity until 2017, that is, after reaching retirement age.

The court ordered the bank to comply with the appeals authority’s earlier order and proceeded to dismiss the bank’s petition.

Madhya Pradesh HC: Rape convict’s sentence reduced as he left underage victim alive

The Indore Bench of the High Court of Madhya Pradesh, comprising Justice Subodh Abhyankar and Justice SKSingh, reduced the sentence of a rape convict from life imprisonment to 20 years on the grounds that he did not did not kill the victim of 4 years after the odious law.

The Appellant in this case was charged and convicted under Article 376(2)(f) of the ICC for committing the rape of a 4-year-old girl. The appellant appealed the conviction.

He maintained that he had been falsely implicated in the affair. He further pointed out that FSL’s report was not recorded by the prosecution. Another argument was that this was not a case where he deserved the life sentence.

The state argued that the appellant deserved no leniency and that the appeal should be dismissed. The court reviewed the submissions of the parties and the trial court record and found that the appellant was properly convicted. The court said the failure to submit the FSL report in court was gross negligence by the police. However, the evidence established the appellant’s guilt beyond any doubt.

Therefore, the court upheld the conviction. On appeal, he was also asked to reduce the sentence to the time he had already served in prison. The court rejected this appeal and declared that the sentence cannot be reduced to the time already served in prison.

However, he noted that the appellant was kind enough to leave the victim alive, therefore the life sentence is reduced to 20 years criminal imprisonment.

J&K&L HC: Once the marriage is validly dissolved by a foreign court, proceedings under the Domestic Violence Act cannot be initiated

A petition has been filed in the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh challenging the complaint filed against the petitioner under the Domestic Violence Act. The complaint was challenged on the ground that there had been no husband and wife relationship between the petitioner and the defendant since the adoption of the decree by which the marriage was dissolved.

The couple got married in 2007 in Jammu and after the wedding they became permanent residents in Germany. The relationship turned hostile after moving to Germany. According to the petitioner, he came to India in February 2014, for a period of 10 days.

Upon his return to Germany, he discovered that the respondent, that is his wife, had left the marital home with gold, property and money. Efforts to find out where she was were in vain and she was nowhere to be found. According to the petitioner, the wife filed a false and frivolous complaint in Germany and began to reside separately. Several attempts at reconciliation by the court in Germany failed because she refused to stay with him. He went to the district court in Wisman, Germany, and filed for divorce. The foreign court granted the divorce petition in July 2017.

The domestic violence complaint filed by the defendant/complainant does not disclose the divorce petition in the foreign court and that the marriage has been dissolved.

The court said section 2(f) of the Domestic Violence Act defines “domestic relationship” and that there was no domestic relationship between the parties. Otherwise the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act cannot be invoked.

The consideration in court was the jurisdiction of the foreign court. She observed that since both were permanent residents of Germany, they were subject to the laws of the country. Therefore, the foreign court’s decision to allow the application for dissolution of marriage stands. He also noted that there was no challenge to the court’s decision by the respondent, ie the wife, implying that she accepted the dissolution of the marriage. Therefore, according to the decree, the relationship ceases to exist. Therefore, the court quashed the domestic violence complaint.

Penalty imposed by the Competition Commission of India on Google, Go-Ibibo, Make My Trip, OYO

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) ruled that the business arrangement between Make My Trip, GoIbibo and OYO was anti-competitive and imposed an aggregate penalty of Rs. 392.36 crores.

In another case, CCI imposed a penalty of Rs. 1.33 thousand crores on Google for anti-competitive practices in relation to Android mobile devices.

Rs. 392 crore penalty on GoIbibo, Make my Trip & Oyo.

The ICC bench was hearing the case of Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI) and Anr, v MakeMyTrip India Pvt. Ltd(MMT) & Ors. She found that the commercial agreement between MakeMyTrip, GoIbibo and OYO was anti-competitive because it led to the delisting of FabHotels, Treebo and independent hotels that used the services of these franchisors.

FHRAI has brought a complaint under section 19(1) of the Competition Act 2002 against Make My Trip and GoIbibo (collectively “MMT-GO”) and Oravel Stays Pvt. (“OYO”). The allegation was that there was a business deal to remove OYO’s competitors from MMT-GO online portals.

FHRAI alleged that MMT-GO imposed price parity in its contracts with hotel partners, which ensured that hotel partners were not allowed to sell their rooms to another online travel agency (OTA) or on its own online portal at a lower price than MMT-GO platform. However, MMT-Go may cause the prices of these rooms to fluctuate. Additionally, partners cannot refuse to provide rooms on the MMT-Go platform when they were provided on other OTAs.

MMT-GO was accused of predatory pricing by offering hotel rooms at a lower price. Customers have benefited from significant discounts which have contributed to the expansion of their own network and customer loyalty. This has had an impact on the smaller OTAs on the market. Treebo & FabHotels were denied market access as they were removed from the MMT-Go platform as they did not agree to pay the brokerage commission charged by the platform. Meanwhile, MMT-Go entered into a confidential business agreement with OYO, in which the latter received preferential treatment on the platform. CCI deemed this business arrangement to be uncompetitive and issued instructions to MMT-Go.

It imposed a fine of Rs. 223.48 crores on Make My Trip and GoIbibo and penalty of Rs. 168.8 crores on OYO which is 5% of their turnover.

Penalty of Rs. 1.34 thousand crores imposed on Google

In another case, CCI found that Google was abusing its dominant position in several markets in the Android device ecosystem and issued a cease and desist order against Google. It imposed a penalty of Rs. 1,337.76 crores and also set out measures that Google must adhere to.

The mobile operating system (OS) – Android, was acquired by Google in 2005. CCI in its press release said that it studied various business practices of Google, including its licensing of Android mobile OS as well as other proprietary mobile apps like Play Store, Google Search, Google Chrome, and YouTube.

He examined the substitutability between Google’s Android Play Store and Apple’s iOS AppStore and found that there was no substitutability between them. CCI noted that Google is dominant in all relevant markets in India, including licensed operating systems (OS) for smart mobile devices, application store for Android smart mobile services and general web search and Online Video Hosting Platforms (OVHP) in India.

CCI observed that Google operates and manages the Android operating system and other proprietary licenses and has entered into several agreements with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to use the Android operating system and Google applications in their smart devices.

The commission concluded that these agreements ensured that the search app, widget, and Chrome browser were pre-installed on Android devices, giving Google’s search services a significant competitive advantage. This benefit has been extended to its other apps like YouTube.

He noted that with those deals in place, Google’s competitors had no chance to compete. Moreover, these agreements have also eliminated choice for users. The ICC held that markets should be allowed to compete on the merits and that it is up to the dominant player, namely Google in this case, to prove that its behavior does not affect competition on the merits .

In addition to the monetary penalty, CCI issued certain measures, including: prohibiting Google from forcing OEMs to pre-install Google’s apps, not preventing OEMs from choosing among Google’s proprietary apps, prohibiting offering monetary or others to OEMs, prohibiting the conclusion of agreements guaranteeing exclusivity, etc.
