Interestinglythe CCI glossed over the history behind merger regulations For instancedraft merger regulations issued on February 282011 did not contain any reference to the final decision of the board of directors as the jurisdictional triggerbut stated that merger regulations will not apply to cases that had taken effect prior to the notification of the merger control provisions Furtherdraft regulations issued in January2008 neither mentioned a cut-off date for notification or approval of the CCInor referred to any decision of the board of directors Indeedin the run-up to the finalisation of the merger regulations in May 2011since the Competition Act was partially in forcethe businesses were concerned about the cut-off date for the implementation of the merger control regime The concerns stemmed from the vague phrase used in the February 2011 version of the merger regulationscoupled with apprehension regarding the time period of 210 days stipulated under the statute for merger review It was in this backdrop that the final merger regulations issued in May 2011 clarified the cut-off date of June 12011 and the final decision of the board of directors In other wordswhere the final decision of the board of directors was taken before June 12011the prior notification and approval of the CCI was not required This was supposed to objectively clarify the cut-off date and ensure that parties do not artificially oust the CCIs jurisdiction This history of merger regulations indicates that the parties decision in the Aditya Birla Nuvo case to seek approvalin the face of what the CCI decided to be not a final decision of the board of directorswas a back-handed compliment to the CCIs efficiency Contrary to the time period of 210 days mentioned in the statutethe CCI hasuntil nowapproved cases within 30 calendar days Furtherthe parties action of seeking the CCIs approval for their transaction clearly indicates that they were not interested in ousting the CCIs jurisdiction Unfortunatelythe CCI refused to acknowledge the compliment andcontrary to what the parties believed and arguedheld that in the absence of a final decision of the board of directorsthe notification was premature andthereforeinvalid Interestinglythere have been at least nine cases where the CCI has reprimanded parties for delay in seeking approval While it has refrained from imposing any penalty so far on the ground that such cases arose in the first year of implementation of the merger control regimeit will be interesting to see the CCIs analysis of a delay-related case that arises after June 12012 Cases such as that of Aditya Birla Nuvowhere the CCI insists upon second-guessing parties assertion on the finality of the decision of the board of directorswill ensure that businesses continue to tread cautiously on Indias nascent merger control regime This will lead to a spike in demand for informalpre-filing consultations with CCI officials Perhaps as an unintended consequencethe transaction costs for both the CCI and the businesses are set to increase The writer is currently a counsel at Trilegal and teaches at the National Law SchoolBangalore For all the

Atlantis and wife of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman right during the beginning of year Top News Amber Heard who just settled her acrimonious divorce case with Johnny Depp has spoken out about eliminating violence against women in a video The actress partnered with the #GirlGaze Project for a new video about domestic violence and briefly shared her personal story reported People magazine “I guess there was a lot of shame attached to that the label of victim It happens to so many women you know when it happens in your home behind closed doors with someone you love it’s not straightforward” Heard 30 says “If a stranger did this as it was pointed out to me if a stranger did this it would be a no brainer” Heard had filed for divorce from ex-husband Johnny Depp in May after 15 months of marriage claiming in court filings that Depp 53 had abused her throughout their relationship She had also filed a domestic violence restraining order against Depp four days after filing for divorce “If I hadn’t had a few people that I really trust around me a few women support a few friends If I hadn’t had them around me how different my life would be” Heard said in her emotional PSA “Just as a woman having gone through this in the public stage in the public arena that I did it I have a unique opportunity to remind other women this doesn’t have to be the way it is you don’t have to do it alone you’re not alone We can change this” she added The coupleannounced they had reached a divorce settlement outside of court in August just one day before their scheduled restraining order hearing The judge ultimately dismissed the domestic violence case against Depp and terminated the actor’s temporary restraining order For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsAshwini Deshpande and Manjistha Banerji Around 35% of children between the ages of 11 and 14 years and 135% between the ages of 15 and 16 years were dropouts while over 25% of children in grades I to VIII were absent from school on the day a team visited the school These are the findings of the 2016 Annual States of Education Report (ASER) survey a household survey of schooling and learning levels in rural India The survey included over 560000 children between three and 16 years in 589 districts of India India’s almost universal enrollment in school hides these two major challenges of school education: High dropout and low attendance Children dropping out or not attending school has consequences: It results in loss in productivity of the education system as a high dropout rate increases per unit cost of school education and reduces human resource development Dropouts are likely to be engaged in semi-skilled and unskilled employment according to a 2011 study by the National University of Educational Planning and Administration In the policy context for the present government’s “Skill India” and “Make in India” programmes to see even a modicum of success it would have to address these two issues related to school education Why do children skip school or drop out Enrollment in school in India does not necessarily translate into attendance At the all-India level only about three-fourths of enrolled children attended primary (grade I to grade IV/V) or upper primary school (grade V to grade VII/VIII) on the day an ASER team visited the school in 2016 The problem of students dropping out and absenteeism is particularly acute in BIMARU (sick) states —an acronym for the less-developed states of Bihar Rajasthan Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh—that together have over 51 million children or 46% of India’s total child population between the ages of 11 and 16 years according to Census data Within BIMARU states this story also considers Uttarakhand Chhatisgarh and Jharkhand which werecarved out of Uttar Pradesh Madhya Pradesh and Bihar respectively Though the reason cited for dropouts in secondary schools is often access (such as “school is far” especially for girls) evidence shows that one of the most important reasons for dropping out is “lack of interest” according to the ASER Centre’s Middle School Study conducted in Nalanda district in Bihar and Satara in Maharashtra between 2013 and 2015 The three-year study tracked the educational trajectory of about 6000 children after primary school A higher proportion of children in the age group 11-16 years who dropped out of school between 2015 and 2016 lacked basic reading and arithmetic skills as compared to children who continued to be enrolled in school in 2016 It is possible that many students’ knowledge level is much below grade level but that teachers teach students only at grade level as one study from 2017 suggests If children are being left behind in school and if no one in school engages with them at their level of knowledge they might dropout of school Though data on absenteeism are difficult to collect and the relationship between learning and absenteeism is not verified empirically it is reasonable to expect that those who attend school regularly have better learning outcomes than their peers who do not Dropouts a major problem for upper-primary school-age students BIMARU states Only 31% children in the age group 6-14 years were out of school according to the 2016 ASER report but there were variations in out-of-school children depending on the age group ASER a household survey captures the enrollment status of all children including out-of-school children who have dropped out or never been to school While only 17% of children in the age group 6-10 years–who would have been in primary school–were out of school a higher proportion (46%) of children in the age group 11-14 years who should have been in upper primary grades were out of school Dropouts are a bigger problem than children who never enroll in school While 11% of children between the ages of 11 and 14 years never enrolled in school 35% were dropouts the ASER 2016 survey found In the age group 11-14 years BIMARU states–particularly UP (63%) MP (58%) and Rajasthan (5%)–have dropouts higher than most other states The proportion of dropouts in Chhattisgarh (4%) and Jharkhand (37%) part of MP and Bihar until 2000 is also above the all-India average of 35% At the all-India level the proportion of dropouts has remained stable–it decreased from 39% in 2012 to 35% in 2016 In contrast 58% of sampled children in MP were dropouts according to ASER 2016 an increase from 37 percentage points in 2010—the only state to see an increase in dropouts Dropouts are higher in secondary school-aged children The proportion of children out of school rises in the older age group of 15- 16years–children who would have been in secondary school (grades IX and X) As many as 153% of children aged 15-16 years were out of school compared to 46% of 11-14 years old children Majority of out-of-school children in the age group 15-16 years (135%) were dropouts according to ASER 2016 survey Across India Madhya Pradesh had the highest proportion of children in ages 15-16 years (236%) who were dropouts Other BIMARU states–UP (187%) Chhattisgarh (175%) and Rajasthan (165%)–are among the top five states with the highest proportion of dropouts in the age group 15-16 years Gujarat an economically advanced state when compared to the BIMARU states has the second highest proportion of dropouts in India—193%–for reasons that are unclear at this point Across India the proportion of dropout children in the age group 15-16 years declined from 141% in 2012 to 135% according to 2016 ASER data For instance dropouts in the states of Bihar and Jharkhand increased between 2010 and 2014 but declined in 2016 In other BIMARU states no trend is discernible For example in UP it increased from 176% in 2010 to 202% in 2012 but again declined to 187% in 2016 The proportion of dropouts in MP on the other hand has steadily increased from 116% in 2010 to 236% in 2016 Reasons behind the varying trends are difficult to understand and we need further studies to understand the pattern of dropouts across states In some states girls more likely than boys to drop out of school Girls in the age group 11-16 years in MP UP and Rajasthan are more likely to drop out of school as compared to boys In MP 28% of girls in the age group 15-16 years were dropouts compared to 194% of boys In Gujarat 225% of girls were dropouts compared to 163% of boys In other BIMARU states–Bihar Jharkhand Chhattisgarh and Uttarakhand–boys in the age group 15-16 years were more likely to drop out of school than girls The

public interest litigation filed by the Federation of Retail Traders Welfare Association in the Bombay High Court against Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation for gross negligence that led to the death of renowned gastroenterologist Dr Deepak Amarapurkar the BMC filed multiple affidavits on behalf of its various departments Thursday None of them however included any information about the doctor slipping into a manhole while wading through rainwater towards his residence in Prabhadevi on the day of the floods in the city on August 29 Officials in the BMC’s legal department said affidavits had been filed by six departments storm water drains (SWD) sewerage operations disaster management ward office fire brigade and one by the executive health officer “In the affidavits the departments have charted out the rescue operations they carried out on August 29 We cannot comment on the death of Dr Amarapurkar since inquiries by the police and the committee set up by the municipal commissioner are under way Even the post-mortem report has not been made available to BMC” said a legal department official Apart from mentioning reasons behind prolonged waterlogging and measures that were taken including de-watering pumps and pumping stations the affidavit filed by the SWD department states that none of the manholes in the area were opened by the BMC on the day of the floods when parts of the city received as much as 315 mm rainfall With reference to the ill-fated incident the affidavit mentions that the BMC reserves the right to file an affidavit on the issue owing to the ongoing inquiry in the matter Dr Amarapurkar’s body was found in Worli on August 31 The inquiry being headed by Additional Municipal Commissioner Vijay Singhal however is focusing more on recommendations for better monitoring of manhole covers rather than fixing responsibility of those who left the manhole open Members of the committee said they had even put out an advertisement in newspapers inviting suggestions on safer designs of manhole covers “We have given a week’s time to send in suggestions after which we will finalise a design that will be included in the report The investigation behind Dr Amarapurkar’s death is being conducted by the police and our inquiry can only look into the SWD’s role” said a member A senior official involved in the relief operations on the day of the flooding said CCTV footage of the nearby area indicated that residents had opened a few of the manholes on August 29 to ensure rainwater would drain out at a quicker pace “Even though CCTV footage of the manhole in which the doctor slipped into doesn’t show who opened it residents can be seen removing other manhole covers along the same pipeline They didn’t intend for anyone to get hurt and had warned the doctor as well It was an unfortunate incident but no one can really be blamed” said the official For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsLucknow: The pre-poll crossing-over of politicians—a routine activity before any election—has gathered momentum in Uttar Pradesh even as major political parties race against time to declare their candidates for the 80 Lok Sabha seats in the state The movement so far appears one-sided as politicians from almost all other parties are flocking to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) This is understandable in view of most pre-poll surveys and field reports suggesting that that the BJP-led NDA has an edge over the Congress-led UPA in most statesCrowding the BJP Reuters For the BJP it is not surprising as its state spokesman puts it “There are many people in both Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) who are in touch with our party leaders But their joining depends upon consensus in our party over the move" says Vijay Bahadur Pathak state BJP spokesman While it is certain that former Congress MP Jagdambika Pal is most likely to join the BJP in a day or two sources in BJP say he might be given the party ticket from Domariaganj "It is almost decided at the top level" says a senior party leader Pal had quit the Congress last week Another state politician whose entry into the BJP is considered certain is Anupriya Patel who heads the Apna Dal She is the daughter Sone Lal Patel who founded that party It was part of an alliance just before the 2012 state Assembly elections that comprised Apna Dal Peace Party and Qaumi Ekta Dal But the alliance collapsed soon thereafter "Patel wields considerable influence among the Kurmi community and will prove beneficial for the BJP" said the BJP leader It all began several months ago with the desire of former chief minister Kalyan Singh to return to the BJP fold He was slated to join the party as early as November last year but the joining was delayed for months He finally took BJP’s membership on the stage from where Narendra Modi addressed a rally in Lucknow on 2 March It is reported that he might be named party’s candidate from Etah Others who have joined the BJP include Kirti Vardhan Singh former MP from Gonda who was earlier given the SP ticket from the same seat but later quit the party and is likely to be named the BJP candidate from the same seat In retaliation Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav dropped Kirti Vardhan’s father Anand Singh who was agriculture minister from the cabinet and also expelled him from the party Incidentally the SP candidate and sitting MP from Kaiserganj Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh had also expressed his unwillingness to contest on party ticket and returned it and later joined it His son Prateek Bhushan has already joined BJP The latest to return the SP election nomination is the stand-up comedian Raju Srivastava who was named SP candidate from Kanpur one year ago and had been campaigning in Kanpur with banners posters and street corner meetings Srivastava told the media that there was "no base of the party in Kanpur" yet he took this responsibility with positivity but non-cooperation from the SP workers in the constituency made him return the party ticket The SP on the other hand claims that Srivastava was not paying “enough attention” to his constituency and campaigning and therefore the party had withdrawn the ticket from him SP has chosen its veteran trader leader Surendra Mohan Agrawal "Most SP workers in Kanpur knew for long that it would finally be Agrawal who would contest from Kanpur and Raju was only a time-pass” says Sanjiv Sharma a public relations professional from Kanpur who keeps in close touch with political parties Even the BSP has its share of bigwigs crossing over to the BJP The latest could be Allahabad MLA Nand Gopal Nandi and his wife Abhilasha mayor of Allahabad Both have been expelled from the BSP for their alleged affinity to the BJP and it is expected that both might join the BJP and Nandi may even get the party nomination from Allahabad Nandi had joined the BSP a few months ahead of the 2007 Assembly election and had defeated BJP’s Keshri Nath Tripathi and Rita Bahuguna Joshi of the Congress from Allahabad (South) He had later been made a cabinet minister by then chief minister Mayawati but after being seriously injured in a bomb attack in 2010 was bedridden for months In the 2012 assembly elections he lost to Samajwadi Party The most unexpected movement was of former SP leader Amar Singh and former MP Jaya Prada into the Ajit Singh-led Rashtriya Lok Dal The duo had been estranged from the SP for years and recent reports suggested that Jaya Prada was keen to join Congress along with Singh "While the party was okay with her there were reservations over Singh’s entry They apparently settled for the second best" says a UPCC leader in Lucknow While Singh has been named the RLD candidate from Fatehpur Sikri Jaya Prada will contest from Bijnore RLD leaders are quite confident that the high-profile entry will change the political equation in the region where the party faces uncertainty in the aftermath of the Muzaffarnagar riots This year the RLD is going to contest on eight seats in alliance with the Congress "Most such movements are by politicians who are not sure of their victory from their party and seek better fortunes in the party which seems to be riding the wave of popularity" says Ravindra Jaiswal a veteran political observer Caste considerations on the part of all political parties also play a role in these defections as is the case with Kalyan Singh Jagdambika Pal Anupriya Patel Udit Raj he says adding that more such movements are likely as the parties give a finishing touch to their candidate lists Similar movements had started from the BSP to other parties just prior to the February-March 2012 Assembly election also At that time the voter sentiment was perceived to be against the BSP but most of the defections had taken place towards the BJP These included former ministers in the Mayawati regime Badshah Singh Babu Singh Kushwaha Daddan Mishra and Avadhesh Verma Following uproar in BJP over the induction of NRHM scam tainted Kushwaha his entry was stalled Kushwaha is still in jail A similar uproar had risen in SP also when Badaun strongman DP Yadav was being re-inducted into the SP but then Akhilesh Yadav had put his foot down and Yadav was denied entry into SP Others who did get into the SP included former UP Assembly Speaker Dhani Ram Varma and
