Election Commission will notify the Rajya Sabha elections for 3 vacancies from Kerala (that will arise later this month on the retirement of the MPs) prior to the expiry of the term of these 3 MPs i.e. before April 21, 2021, #KeralaHighCourt told.

Adv Deepu Lal Mohan (for EC) says that the reason why HC was moved was because the earlier notification was kept in abeyance.

A revised election schedule will be issued. At this moment, it cannot be speculated when it will be scheduled, but it will be before April 21, he adds
Senior Advocate CS Vaidyanathan, for the petitioner, argues that the Election Commission must disclose why the initial date for the Rajya Sabha elections was reconsidered in the first place and what reference of the Law Ministry was involved.

#Breaking: #MadrasHighCourt opines that it appears that the Tamil Nadu govt may not have followed applicable UGC guidelines in cancelling college arrear exams in August 2020 amid #COVID19; suggests that State come up with a Plan B after consulting the UGC.
"Though the relevant notification (Aug 26, 2020) referred to evaluation being carried out on the basis of the guidelines issued by the UGC or AICTE, it appears that AICTE did not agree to the proposal and the UGC guidelines may not have been followed at all."

"It is inconceivable that a whole masse of students will be certified to have qualified in a system without having basic knowledge in respect of key aspects thereof."

#BREAKING: #DelhiHighCourt holds that wearing of masks is compulsory even if a person is driving alone in a car in the context of the #COVID19 pandemic.

The vehicle even if occupied by one person would be a public place, Justice Prathiba Singh holds. Image
A mask is like a suraksha kavach for preventing the spread of the coronavirus. It protects the person wearing it as also the person who is exposed...wearing of masks has been one measure that has saved millions of lives: #DelhiHighCourt

Court adds that wearing of masks is also encouraged within home if there are elderly persons. Vehicle moving across public places may pose risk of exposure

"Thus, a vehicle even if constituted by one person would constitute a public place.. wearing of mask would be compulsory."
