A Division Bench comprising the Chief Justice, N.K. Jain, and Justice A.C. Kabbin ordered issue of notice to the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) on the writ appeal filed by the math, challenging the single judge's order.
The math, having its main seat at Sode in Sirsi taluk of Uttara Kannada District, stated that it had a branch at N.R. Colony in Bangalore where it was conducting various religious activities. These were not taken up after 7 p.m. and no pollution was being caused, it said.
However, the Health Officer of BMP issued a notice to the Math on April 21, banning all activities on the ground that the math was running a party hall without obtaining licence from the civic body.
When the notice was challenged before the High Court, a single judge dismissed the petition directing the math not to allow the public to hold functions at its branch. The court had ordered that the BMP could take action if the direction was violated.
Directive to colleges
Justice H. Rangavittalachar on Tuesday directed the pharmacy colleges in the State to pay inspection fee to the State Pharmacy Colleges Monitoring Committee before September 24 and get the institutions inspected.
The order was passed while dismissing a writ petition filed by the Karnataka Pharmacy Colleges Managements' Association, challenging a directive by the committee to pay Rs. 25,000 as inspection fee before the second week of September. The managements contended that the committee was set up by the All-India Council for Technical Education and had no jurisdiction over pharmacy colleges which were governed by the Pharmacy Council of India.
A Division Bench comprising Justice S.R. Nayak and Justice S.B. Majage directed the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), the Oriental Insurance Company, and A.R. Ravi, Development Officer with LIC, to pay a compensation of Rs. 2.75 lakh to the father of an LIC agent who died in an accident.
The order was passed while setting aside an award passed on September 18, 1999, by the Motor Accidents Claim Tribunal, Bangalore Rural district, rejecting the claim for compensation by H.V. Narayana Rao of Bangalore following the death of his son, H.N. Suresh. Suresh died in a road accident on Mysore Road when he was coming back to Bangalore on a motorcycle along with Mr. Ravi after soliciting business on June 30, 1991.
The tribunal, relying on Mr. Ravi's evidence that Mr. Suresh was driving the motorcycle recklessly at the time of accident, rejected the claim.
The High Court, however, found no substance in Mr. Ravi's evidence and directed all the respondents to pay the compensation with interest at eight per cent per annum from the date of the claim petition filed before the tribunal.
