View comments MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Fernandez said San Beda will file an appeal to downgrade Bolick’s disqualifying foul in time for its game against Mapua on Friday.“We’ll appeal that for sure, but how can we appeal if there’s no report? We want to know what happened, why they called it for Robert? Why? They have to justify it,” he said.Fernandez then turned his ire towards commissioner Bai Cristobal, noting that the official could have handled the matter better knowing that decisions made from that situation gravely impact some of the players’ career in the long run.Bolick is in the running for the Most Valuable Player plum, with him currently sixth in the race with averages of 13.56 points, 7.56 rebounds, and 4.67 assists.He also posted a near triple-double performance in the game with 14 markers, 11 dimes, and seven boards, but him being sent to the showers in the game against St. Benilde already rules him out of any individual plum at the end of the season.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses “Why would you throw him out?

With the Red Lions leading, 71-57, and the game already out of reach, Blazers guard Carlo Young took down Bolick, who was driving to the basket, hard late in the game. But Bolick and Clint Doliguez were also thrown out with 2:28 to play.“It’s unethical. We were already up by 14 points and it’s a fastbreak. Why endanger a guy? And then punish a guy?

I don’t want to speculate, but it’s a won game already, and then that incident happened and they penalized the other team that did not start it,” he said. “If they want us to lose ball games, then let us lose that ball game in a proper way. God, it’s so bad. It’s wrong. (We had) six fouls in fourth quarter and the other team only has one foul, and then that happens. They tackle a player? Should he be thrown out? Yes, it should be an [ejection]. But why penalize the other guy?” Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netSan Beda coach Boyet Fernandez leapt to Robert Bolick’s defense after he felt his star playmaker was unjustly ejected in his team’s 72-56 win over St. Benilde on Tuesday.“You have to see that. You throw out a guy who is tackled, (who the other player is) trying to get injured, and then you call him and throw him out again?

Being a Sikh, long hair is natural to me. Though it was a conscious decision to sport trendy turbans, and that has become my trademark,” he says. He teams it with his favourite Longines watch and a chunky Punjabi kada. “True style must reflect one’s taste, culture and lifestyle,” explains Karan.Avant garde style: He believes that men this season are getting bolder about style. “Casual bottoms paired with funky t-shirts and bright sneakers are in,” says Karan, who’s currently fixated with Canali’s SS11 ties and scarves collection.On the spotadvertisementBhavna and Anisha Batra, two city-based designer siblings, unveiled their latest collection labeled Cover Story at their palatial residence in Chandigarh.

New York Post Under Scrutiny For Ridiculous Article Title

Report: Leonard Fournette’s Family May Have Broken NCAA Rules

Posted on by

first_imgLeonard Fournette talks during an interview.YouTube/LSU Tiger TV YouTube/LSU Tiger TVYouTube/LSU Tiger TVLSU sophomore running back Leonard Fournette is the leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy this year, given the fact that he’s rushed for 1,352 yards and 15 touchdowns in just seven games. But according to USA TODAY, his family could be in a bit of trouble with the NCAA regarding a website that was launched back ahead of the 2014 season.According to the publication, a website dedicated to “BUGA Nation” – which stands for “Being United Generates Attitude” – was launched with the intent to sell tee shirts and hats to the public. Fournette “helped develop” the acronym. Here’s more:Paul Price, described by Fournette’s mother as the family’s manager, made payments of about $10,000 to build a website and produce the merchandise to be sold, the owners of three companies involved told USA TODAY Sports. The owners said they gave Price and the Fournettes more than $20,000 in discounts because they expected strong sales driven by the star running back’s popularity. Even with the discounts, one of the business owners said he has yet to be paid in full.The website launched the week of LSU’s 2014 season opener, but the business went no further — sales of T-shirts and hats were stopped within 24 hours after the NCAA learned of its existence, according to Lory Fournette.Clearly, the issue here is that players and their families are not allowed to profit off of an athlete’s likeness, image or name.Will this lead to NCAA issues for LSU and Fournette? At this point, it’s hard to say. You can read the entire article over at USA TODAY.last_img read more

Crown wants 2 years for man who took girl to US to

Posted on by

first_imgCRANBROOK, B.C. — A special prosecutor is recommending up to two years in prison for a former polygamous leader in Bountiful, B.C., convicted of removing a child from Canada to marry a member of his fundamentalist sect in the United States.Peter Wilson said that as an ex-bishop of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, James Oler is culpable for facilitating the directives of church leader and prophet Warren Jeffs, who ordered him to bring the underage child to the U.S. to be married in 2004. Wilson said aggravating sentencing factors against Oler included the girl’s age at the time, his position of trust and his position as a bishop and religious authority in the community.“He occupied the highest priesthood office in the community of Bountiful because he was the bishop and that office made him directly answerable to Warren Jeffs,” said Wilson, in front of Justice Martha Devlin in Cranbrook Supreme Court.During Oler’s trial, court heard that church records seized by American law enforcement indicated that Jeffs called Oler on June 23, 2004, and ordered him to bring the 15-year-old girl to the U.S. to be married.A trial witness, whose identity is protected by a publication ban, was also named by Jeffs in the directive to come to the U.S. and be married as a child bride.The witness testified she travelled with two adults to the United States on June 24, 2004, crossing into Idaho at the Porthill crossing south of Creston and pulling into a rest area shortly after. She went into the woods to relieve herself, and when she returned, another van containing Oler and the 15-year-old girl had arrived.All but one piled into the newly arrived van and headed to Cedar City, Utah, and later to Mesquite, Nev.Church records indicate 18 marriages took place on June 25, as the witness, the 15-year-old girl, and Oler himself were all married in separate ceremonies.Wilson suggested that the judge could exercise her discretion to consider Oler’s conduct in the removal of the trial witness even though she wasn’t included in his indictment.“It’s my submission that no unfairness to Mr. Oler will result in the event you choose to exercise your discretion to consider his role in the removal of (the witness) from Canada,” Wilson argued.However, Devlin questioned whether she could be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Oler was guilty of all the same elements of the child removal offence involving the trial witness, given that Oler may not have known she was under 16 at the time.Oler does not have a lawyer. Joe Doyle, who is serving as a friend of the court to ensure a fair trial, suggested a sentencing range between six to 18 months in prison, drawing parallels to an earlier ruling against Brandon James Blackmore and Emily Ruth Gail Blackmore.They were convicted and sentenced for the same child removal charge after being ordered to bring a 13-year-old girl to marry Jeffs. Brandon James Blackmore was sentenced to 12 months in jail, while Emily Ruth Gail Blackmore was given a seven-month jail term.Oler, however, was acquitted because the presiding judge was unable to determine, based on the trial evidence, whether he did anything within Canada’s borders to arrange the girl’s transfer to the U.S. The acquittal was successfully challenged by the Crown and a new trial was ordered by the B.C. Court of Appeal.Devlin found Oler guilty of the child removal charge in a new trial that was held in Cranbrook earlier this year.The court has set Aug. 29 as a tentative date for sentencing.The court heard that Oler is living in isolation in Alberta after being stripped of his bishop’s appointment and excommunicated from the Bountiful community nearly a decade ago for participating in legal proceedings examining the constitutionality of Canada’s polygamy laws.He was also charged and convicted of polygamy alongside Bountiful leader Winston Blackmore and sentenced to three months house arrest in 2018.(Cranbrook Daily Townsman)Trevor Crawley, Cranbrook Daily Townsman, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

That pipeline is going to get built PM dismisses BCs Trans Mountain

Posted on by

first_imgEDMONTON – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline expansion will happen despite British Columbia’s latest attempt to hinder the project.Speaking on Edmonton talk radio station CHED on Thursday, Trudeau said the pipeline, which would take Alberta crude to the West Coast for shipment to Asian markets, is in the national interest and will go ahead.“That pipeline is going to get built,” Trudeau said. “We will stand by our decision. We will ensure that the Kinder Morgan pipeline gets built.”B.C.’s environment minister has said his minority government plans to ban increased shipments of diluted bitumen off the province’s coast until it can determine that shippers are prepared and able to properly clean up a spill.The move has infuriated Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, who has accused B.C. of trying to change the rules after the federal government already gave the project the green light.Trudeau said Canada needs to get Alberta’s oil safely to markets other than the United States. He said the federal government did the research and has spent billions on spill response.“The Kinder Morgan pipeline is not a danger to the B.C. coast,” he said.Trudeau said it’s normal for provinces to have differences of opinion and that’s why there is a federal government.“One of the reasons we have a national government to oversee national interests is to step up for the interests of all Canadians and that’s exactly what I am going to do,” he said, without elaborating on what steps he might take.Notley has threatened trade retaliation with B.C. if the shipping ban goes ahead. She held an emergency cabinet meeting Wednesday to discuss what legal and economic levers Alberta can pull in its spat with its neighbour to the west. She specifically mentioned interprovincial trade in electricity.The B.C. government has said it will establish an independent scientific advisory panel to study the issue.B.C.’s proposal creates more uncertainty for Kinder Morgan’s already-delayed Trans Mountain expansion project that would nearly triple the capacity of its pipeline system to 890,000 barrels a day.Notley is not alone in her fight.Saskatchewan’s incoming premier Scott Moe has also expressed support for the project and criticized the move by B.C., as have opposition party leaders in Saskatchewan and Alberta.(Companies in this story: TSX:KML)last_img read more

Canadas Canola Sector receiving help from Canadian Government

Posted on by

first_imgCanadian farmers and producers now have preferential market access to an estimated 1.5 billion consumers in more than 50 countries, with the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).According to the Government of Canada, they stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Canadian producers and want to ensure they have the support they need. The Government shares they are prepared to respond to support producers of other commodities should further trade actions occur.Strong and stable markets for our high-quality Canadian canola means more money in the pockets of our farmers and supports good, middle-class jobs for Canadian farm families. The Government of Canada will not rest until this issue is resolved for our Canadian producers, workers and communities. The announcement by Minister Bibeau shares, the Government intends to amend the Agricultural Marketing Programs Regulations to temporarily increase loan limits under the Advance Payments Program (APP). These changes will help ease cash flow pressures that farmers are facing and help them manage the impacts of market disruptions in key export countries.The regulatory amendment would change the loan limits for the APP for the 2019 year as follows:Advances of up to $1 million will be available on all commodities, more than double the previous limit of $400,000.The first $100,000 will remain interest-free on all commodities, except canola. Canola advances will be eligible for up to $500,000 (total) interest-free.As well as the announcement, Minister Bibeau shared as part of the Government of Canada’s trade diversification strategy, she will be heading to Japan in May to participate in the G20 Agriculture Ministers’ Meeting. During Minister Bibeau’s time in Japan, she will meet with Japanese industry leaders and officials from several countries to advance Canada’s agricultural trade.“Farmers deserve our support as we work to maintain full market access to China and create new opportunities for them to grow their business. We are ensuring that farmers have the security they need leading into this year’s season to help manage their cash flow, giving them the flexibility to sell their canola at the best time and at the best price. Our government will always stand up for Canadian interests and support hardworking farmers as we work closely with the grains sector, exporters and provinces to secure unrestricted market access for Canada’s high-quality canola”, said Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.As well Minister Carr announced that he will be leading a canola trade mission to Japan and South Korea in early June. Minister Carr’s outreach will build on his work to engage other high-potential countries including UAE, Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Mexico, Germany, and France. Trade missions open doors and provide on-the-ground support so that companies can compete and succeed in the international playing field.“For the last three years, our government has been focused on diversifying our trading partners and opening new markets to high-quality, Canadian-made products, including canola. Through our new trade agreements, Canadian businesses—including exporters and agri-food producers—now have preferential market access to an estimated 1.5 billion customers around the globe. This trade mission will give us another opportunity to open new doors for our canola farmers in both Japan and South Korea.” said Jim Carr, Minister of International Trade Diversification OTTAWA, ONT – The Government of Canada is committed to maintaining full market access for Canadian canola seed exports to China to support Canadian producers and their families.Canada’s canola producers will export $11 billion in canola to more than 50 countries in 2018. Canola producers are key drivers of jobs, economic prosperity and growth for the middle class, shared the Government.The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Marie-Claude Bibeau and Minister of International Trade Diversification, Jim Carr announced actions to support Canadian farm families.last_img read more

Real Madrid beat Valladolid 4-1

Posted on by

first_imgValladolid (Spain): Real Madrid came back from an early deficit to trounce Valladolid on the road in a La Liga match that was a good bit tougher for the capital squad than the 4-1 score would seem to indicate. The home team on Sunday dominated the match during most of the first half, keeping Madrid off-balance with numerous attempts and finally getting on the board first – thanks to Anuar Tuhami – in the 29th minute, although Ruben Alcaraz had missed a penalty kick in the 11th minute and Sergi Guardiola had two goals disallowed, reports Efe news. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherSantiago Solari, Real Madrid’s coach, had all the necessary ingredients in his line-up, but the capital squad could not seem to get anything going against their hosts early on due to a lack of rhythm and slow reflexes on the recoveries. Alvaro Odriozola fouled Guardiola in the box, and the striker’s nice tap of Keko’s crossing shot seemed to have given Valladolid the lead until the VAR consultation disallowed the goal. Just a few minutes later, Guardiola, who has not yet notched a La Liga tally, had a header cancelled on an offside call. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian OpenReal Madrid – who was without the injured Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez, Vinicius Junior, Gareth Bale and captain Sergio Ramos, on suspension – was on the ropes, it seemed, until Raphael Varane hit the equalizer from short range in the 34th minute, and that’s where the score stood at halftime. After the break, however, Madrid started to get the hang of the game, with Valladolid’s Oscar Plano fouling Odriozola inside the box and Benzema getting Masip to jump the wrong way on the penalty kick for the lead. Then, it was Benzema again, heading in Toni Kroos’s shot to send the capital boys up 3-1. Casemiro was sent off on a second yellow card in the 80th minute when he stood in the way of Plano on the hosts’ free kick and Madrid had just 10 men on the pitch for the last minutes of the match, but the game was already sewn up. Croatia’s Luka Modric scored Madrid’s fourth superfluous goal in the 85th minute after slashing into the box on a pass from Benzema. The loss now forces Valladolid to win four or five matches of the 11 that remain to avoid relegation, while Madrid’s win gives a little oxygen to Solari and provides a bit of calm after a hectic week. Barcelona continues to lead the La Liga table with 63 points, followed by Atletico Madrid with 56 and Real Madrid with 51.last_img read more

Tata Sponge Iron gets board approval for name change, to shift registered office to Bengal

Posted on by

first_imgKolkata: Tata Sponge Iron, a 54.5 per cent subsidiary company of Tata Steel, said on Thursday that its board has approved shifting of the company’s registered office from Odisha to West Bengal and changing its name to “Tata Steel Long Products Limited”. Incidentally, the company has made this move of shifting its registered office along with changing its name after it had completed acquisition of the steel business of Kolkata-based Usha Martin Ltd (UML) earlier this month with pending transfer some of the assets including mines and certain land parcels. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaIn a regulatory filing, Tata Sponge Iron said its board on Thursday “approved the shifting of the registered office of the company to West Bengal, subject to the approval of the members of the company and other regulatory authorities, as may be applicable and consequent amendment in the Registered Office clause of the Memorandum of Association”. The company’s 36th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of its members is scheduled to take place on July 15 at Joda in Odisha’s Keonjhar district. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway The company, in the filing, also said its board approved the change in its name to “Tata Steel Long Products Limited” or such other name, as may be approved by the Registrar of Companies, subject to the approval of the members of the company and other regulatory authorities, as may be applicable and consequent amendment in name clause of Memorandum of Association. Notably, Tata Sponge Iron completed the acquisition of the steel business of UML on April 9 with payment of cash consideration of Rs 3468.63 crore (after adjustments for negative working capital and hold backs, pending transfer of some assets including mines and certain land parcels). UML’s steel business includes one-million-tonne steel alloy manufacturing plant near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, an operative iron ore mine, a coal mine under development and captive power plants. Shifting of Tata Sponge Iron’s registered office from Odisha to West Bengal would be a significant development for the Trinamool Congress-ruled state. After Tata Global Beverages, Tata Metaliks and Tinplate Company of India (TCIL), it would be a new entrant of the list of Tata companies whose registered office would be in Bengal. Tata Steel, in September last year, had executed definitive agreements with the Kolkata-based UML for the acquisition of the latter’s steel business.Tata Sponge Iron’s net profit for the fourth quarter ended March 31 stood at Rs 24.39 crore, down 47.76 per cent year-on-year and its revenue from operations, during the March quarter this fiscal grew 4.34 per cent year-on-year at Rs 254.07 crore.last_img read more

All Brooks Koepka Does Is Win Majors

Posted on by

When Brooks Koepka outdueled Tiger Woods (and Adam Scott) to win the PGA Championship Sunday afternoon, he joined an exclusive group of golfers with three career major championships to their name. In all of golf history, going back even past the days of Tom Morrises both young and old, only 46 players have ever won three majors. Fewer still have won three in the span of 14 months the way Koepka has, having captured the 2017 and 2018 U.S. Opens on top of his win at Bellerive Country Club this weekend. Koepka may still have trouble getting recognized by the general public, but he is getting plenty of recognition in golf’s history books.One weird thing about Koepka, though, is that he hasn’t really done much winning outside of golf’s most prestigious events. Other than that pair of U.S. Opens and this recent PGA Championship win, the only official PGA Tour event Koepka has won was the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open. You don’t have to win a ton of events to make a good living in golf, of course. Koepka has done plenty well for himself, earning nearly $20 million in official money and ranking among the top 20 in FedEx Cup points for four years running. But it’s still striking how much of his success has been concentrated in major championships.Since the PGA Tour was founded, only two golfers with at least three career major wins — Henry Cotton and Peter Thomson — have had a greater share of their total career PGA Tour wins come in majors than Koepka’s 75 percent mark: 2Peter ThomsonAUS5683.3 10Payne StewartUSA31127.3 10Jordan SpiethUSA31127.3 Koepka is in extremely rare — and international — companyFor men’s golfers with at least 3 major championships since the PGA Tour was founded in 1929, share of total PGA Tour wins that were majors 4Nick FaldoENG6966.7 7Gary PlayerZAF92437.5 RankPlayerCountryMajor WinsPGA Tour WinsMajors as Share of Wins * Cotton’s victories were from an era before the PGA European Tour was founded, but were all at events located in Europe.Source: Wikipedia, PGA Tour 6Pádraig HarringtonIRL3650.0 It’s no coincidence that the leaderboard above is littered with foreign-born players who didn’t regularly play on the PGA Tour. For instance, Thomson, an Aussie, won an impressive 84 professional tournaments in his career, but almost all of them were in Europe, Oceania or Asia. Particularly in the early days of pro golf, great non-American players seldom came over to the States to ply their trade, so this metric is a bit skewed for them. That’s why Koepka stands out as the only American remotely close to the top of our list; the next-highest is Larry Nelson at just 30 percent.One reason for Koepka’s odd ratio: His path to greatness contained detours. It included a stint on the second-tier European Challenge Tour out of college — where Koepka won a lot, enough to gain automatic promotion to the main tour within roughly a calendar year. Once there, he remained a card-carrying member of the European Tour through the end of the 2015 season. Since he didn’t play a full season of PGA Tour events until three years ago, he hasn’t had quite as much time to pile up wins in America as we’d expect just from eyeballing the span of his pro career.Still, Koepka owns one of the oddest — and most enviable — major records of any golfer ever. The way he’s playing, he’ll probably rack up ordinary PGA Tour wins before too long, but for now he has saved almost all of his winning for the tournaments that matter most. 1Henry Cotton*ENG33100.0% 3Brooks KoepkaUSA3475.0 5Seve BallesterosESP5955.6 9Rory McIlroyNIR41428.6 8Larry NelsonUSA31030.0 read more

From Peyton Manning to CocaCola ads Ohio State students excited about the

Posted on by

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning scans the field during the AFC championship game against the New England Patriots Jan. 19 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Denver won, 26-16.Courtesy of MCTEvery year, there is plenty of buzz surrounding the Super Bowl, the biggest game of the season for the most popular sport in the country.Super Bowl XLVIII is no exception, and Ohio State students are preparing to take in all that comes with the big game this year.The Denver Broncos and their No. 1-ranked offense are set to take on the battle-tested Seattle Seahawks Sunday, who boast the league’s best defense. The strengths of both teams are sure to test the will of all players and coaches involved as they look to capture the sport’s ultimate crown, The Vince Lombardi Trophy.According to Wallethub.com, about 169 million people are expected to watch the Super Bowl, spanning 180 countries and more than 30 languages. But, along with the game itself, there are plenty of other reasons for people across the world to tune in.Erin Ponting, a second-year in chemistry, said she has a rooting interest in the game but is looking forward to another part of the broadcast.“I am really excited to see if (Broncos quarterback) Peyton Manning can win another ring, but am thrilled to watch the Red Hot Chili Peppers perform with Bruno Mars,” Ponting said, referring to the halftime show. “I am a fan of both artists and think they will put on a good halftime show.”Coupled with the halftime show, the commercials have become a spectacle in their own right. One 30-second ad this year is expected to cost advertisers more than $4 million, a rate only justified by the amount of viewers who watch the game. Each year, advertisers compete to see who can have the best commercial and vie to outspend one another for airtime.Charlie Cataline, a fourth-year in art, said he does not have a favorite team in either the Broncos or Seahawks, but thinks the commercials will be a fun break from the football action.“The commercials are usually pretty good and entertaining,” Cataline said. “People expect to see great commercials and I look to Budweiser, Coke and new movie trailers to entertain me between plays.”In the end, between the halftime entertainment and the commercials, there is still a game being played. This Super Bowl, as with any other game, is likely to create or define legacies for all the players and coaches involved.Callie Roney, a second-year in exploration, said she is cheering for a Broncos win because of her admiration for Manning.“I will be pulling for the Broncos to win because I love Peyton Manning,” Roney said. “I have always been a big fan of his and this victory will help him catch up with his brother in the number of Super Bowl titles won.”Kickoff between the Seahawks and Broncos is set for 6:30 p.m. from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. read more

FRDI Bill Online petition to remove controversial clause goes viral as people

Posted on by

first_imgIndian Parliament. [Representational Image]WikipediaThe controversial Financial Resolution and Deposit Insurance (FRDI) bill has been in the news every other day. This time an online petition, demanding the exclusion of the “bail in” provision of the Bill, is doing rounds and has already attracted over 1.3 lakh signatures.Indian middle-class fears the FRDI bill in the current form, because apparently Clause 52 of the draft legislation proposes a “bail-in” provision which would give legal powers to a specially-mandated authority called the “Resolution Corporation” to invoke it. The provision apparently allows the government to use depositors’ money to bail out banks on the verge of bankruptcy.The petition, titled “Do not use innocent depositors”, was floated two weeks ago and aims to gather 1.5 lakh signatures. The face behind the campaign, Shilpa Shree, said: “This bill gives power to a government entity to use depositors’ money to save a bank on the verge of bankruptcy.”The joint committee reviewing the bill sought on Monday, December 18, more time from Parliament to submit its report. Following that, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said the lower house has extending the time granted to the joint panel “up to the last day of Budget Session 2018,” news agency PTI reported.According to the government, the bill is aimed to put in place a framework for overseeing financial institutions such as banks, insurance companies, non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) and stock exchanges in cases of insolvency.The petition has been addressed to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley along with five members of the Joint Committee of the Bill.The proposed bill provides depositors insurance up to a limit in case of failure. Currently, all deposits up to Rs 1 lakh are protected under the Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation Act, which is sought to be repealed by the proposed bill.However, the finance minister recently tweeted to assure people that the Bill would not hurt depositors’ interests.”The FRDI Bill will strengthen the system by adding a comprehensive resolution regime that will help ensure that, in the rare event of failure of a financial service provider, there is a system of quick, orderly and efficient resolution in favour of depositors,” he tweeted.The FRDI Bill does not propose in any way to limit the scope of powers for the Government to extend financing and resolution support to banks, including public sector banks. Government’s implicit guarantee for public sector banks remains unaffected.— Ministry of Finance (@FinMinIndia) 7 December 2017Recently, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called the bill “draconian” and wrote to Jaitley requesting its immediate withdrawal. In a letter, she said people would lose faith in the banking system if the bill was not withdrawn.”I will like to sincerely appeal to the Centre to desist from enacting this Draconian law and withdraw the bill to ensure that the common people in the country are saved from financial ruin,” Mamata wrote in her letter.Bank employee unions had in September urged the finance minister to withdraw the bill after it was tabled in the Lok Sabha in the Monsoon session.Speaking recently at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Ficci)’s 90th annual general meeting at in Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said: “Rumours regarding FRDI are being spread. The Central government is working towards protecting interest and rights of depositors but the rumours being spread are totally opposite.”Rumors regarding FRDI are being spread. Govt is working towards protecting interest and rights of depositors but rumors being spread are totally opposite.
