AAP to file fresh petition in court; Delhi appears headed for polls

Aam Aadmi Party legislators have withdrawn a petition they had filed in the Delhi High Court against the Election Commission's recommendation that they be disqualified for holding offices of profit.

Party sources said they would file a fresh petition after President Ram Nath Kovind signed off on the disqualification of the 20 AAP legislators.

If the high court rejects AAP's appeal, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's party has said it will move the Supreme Court.

Pleas on Loya’s death serious but don’t cast aspersions: SC

The Supreme Court on Monday dubbed as "serious" the issues raised in the pleas relating to the death of special CBI judge B H Loya, but castigated a senior lawyer for raking up the name of BJP president Amit Shah in the case.

The apex court, which decided to look into "all documents with utmost seriousness" connected with the death of Loya, who was trying the Soharabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, also took umbrage at senior advocate Indira Jaising, who during the hearing, inferred a possible future order that the apex court may gag the media in the case.

Cong ready for bypolls, says Ajay Maken

Demanding the resignation of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal after the disqualification of 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs, Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken (in pic) said on Sunday his party was ready for bypolls.

He also reiterated the allegation that the BJP and the Election Commission (EC) had "helped the AAP by delaying the disqualification process and enabled it to send its three candidates to the Rajya Sabha".

Prez disqualifies 20 AAP MLAs

In a major setback to AAP, President Ram Nath Kovind has disqualified 20 of its MLAs in Delhi for holding offices of profit, a move the party described as “unconstitutional" and "dangerous for democracy".

Kovind gave his assent on Saturday to the recommendation by the Election Commission (EC).

Reacting to the development, senior AAP leader Ashutosh said, "President's order to disqualify AAP MLAs is unconstitutional and dangerous for democracy."

Govt may tweak tax slabs, bring standard deduction

The government is likely to tweak income tax slabs and rates in Budget 2018-19 to bring down the burden on individuals, while there is unlikely to be any change in the current taxation of dividends, according to a survey by EY.

In a pre-budget survey by tax consultant EY, a wide majority of 69 per cent of the respondents felt that the threshold limits for taxation would increase further in order to boost disposable income in the hands of the people.

End of sunset clause for SEZs advocated

The commerce ministry has pitched for continuation of tax incentives being enjoyed by units in special economic zones (SEZs) with a view to boost shipments and job creation, a government official said.

In a letter to the finance ministry, the department of commerce has also asked for removal of minimum alternate tax on SEZs.

I am fighting Cong culture, not only party: Modi

Prime minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday his slogan of ‘Congress-free India’ was not about eliminating the main opposition party politically, but about ridding the country of the “Congress culture”, which he termed as casteist, dynastic, corrupt and involving total control over power among other ills.

Petrol price set to breach all-time high level

The government reluctance to take a relook at high excise duty on petroleum products may push petrol prices to all-time high levels as early as next month.

This would be a double whammy for auto fuel consumers who are already paying record high price for diesel.
