Service | Published: May 8 2014 2:40 am Related News Legislative intervention may not be the best answer to the problem of frivolous law suits The Supreme Court’s suggestion to the legislature to formulate a “Code for Compulsory Costs” reflects its concern over the rising trend of frivolous litigation that takes up the judiciary’s valuable time and resources But institutional tools already exist to address the problem of vexatious suits Courts can throw out ill-conceived legal claims and impose exemplary costs on litigants The detection of law suits intended to harass individuals or organisations begins at the trial court level and it is the judiciary’s responsibility to ensure that such cases are nipped in the bud Thanks to influential patrons and deep pockets such suits may still find their way to appellate courts — but even at this stage high courts and the SC can impose exceptional costs on a litigant for wasting their time The Constitution allows the SC to issue “any order” necessary for “doing complete justice” to the matter before it including on costs The SC has mooted that in vexatious suits “a litigant who has succeeded must be compensated by the one who has lost” To be sure statutory provisions of the sort the SC has asked from Parliament do exist in the West where there is a robust jurisprudence around compensation for frivolous claims India’s civil procedure code vests high courts with the power to impose “compensatory” costs for frivolous civil suits but the amount they can impose is unreasonably capped at Rs 3000 If anything the CPC could be amended to remove the ceiling on exemplary costs The frivolity of a law suit is not best judged from the motive of a litigant which will rarely present itself to courts Whether a suit is intended to harass will depend on the circumstances of the case as well as the evidence at hand A fair trial will bring the true intentions behind a complaint to light The problem of vexatious law suits cannot be divorced therefore from effective case management or judicial functioning generally Imposing high costs on litigants is only one step towards addressing this malady For all the latest Opinion News

News West Ham opened the scoring in the 19th minute before being forced to hold on for a 1-1 draw at Burnley in the English Premier League on Saturday after Andy Carroll’s reckless first-half dismissal The striker picked up two quick yellow cards for elbowing James Tarkowski in the air then barreling into Ben Mee moments later That left the Hammers with more than an hour to protect Michail Antonio’s freak goal and it proved too much of a challenge New Zealand striker Chris Wood pounced late to deny the visitors their first back-to-back wins of the season Antonio’s opener at Turf Moor came after a muscular heave upfield from West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart Antonio set off in pursuit but wouldn’t have got near goal had Mee not misjudged the ball Antonio was gifted possession and rounded goalkeeper Nick Pope to roll the ball into an open net Wood eventually salvaged a point in the 85th rising to nod Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s delivery beyond Hart and compounding Carroll’s guilt

Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: March 1 2017 3:58 am Top News To ensure sustained running of the Mumbai Metro One rake an innovative technology has been used to redesign the wheels The technology to be used for the first time in the country will ensure longer life for the wheels of the Metro rake Watch What Else is Making News According to Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) officials the wheels have been retrofitted with Industrial Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) chips that will reduce the wear and tear of the wheels This will be done by alerting a particular technical component in the operations system of the oncoming of a curve “Mumbai Metro One has 64 curves and they are the steepest curves than any of the metro systems in the country When the train passes over such curves there is high friction between the wheels and the track causing the wheel to wear away and drastically reduce its life With the RFID tags the lubricant will be released right in time and the friction will be avoided” said an MMOPL official “We found the earlier system to be inefficient for our metro due to the late release of the lubricant This system corrects that error We have been experimenting with this since August last year and will now be implementing this in all the wheels” he said Installed at a cost of Rs 30 lakh the RFID tags have been placed at the 64 curves and detectors have been placed under each of the 16 trains This system will help increase the life span of the wheels to 10 years as opposed to the existing working capacity of 3-4 years For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWe have been witness to solemn representations from the Opposition on how the very foundation of Indian democracy is in peril because the EVMs cannot be trusted anymore We are told that since these electronic voting machines are unreliable and liable to tampering the true public mandate isn’t getting reflected and very soon people will lose their faith in the democratic processRepresentational image Reuters This is worrisome The electoral process is sacrosanct If people’s belief in it is shaken the underpinnings of our democracy will eventually become unstable The results could be devastating Such serious charges demand close scrutiny At the very outset however we note that these grave allegations have so far been unsupported by data For allegations so severe not even a shred of evidence has been provided by the protesting parties which may be used to question the vulnerability of EVM machines leave alone proving anything conclusively A bravura performance to prove "EVM rigging by BJP" was recently staged by the Aam Aadmi Party amid much fanfare but though it was impressive in terms of theatrics and entertainment very little was achieved by way of proof The fact that it was held inside Parliament to avoid Election Commission’s challenge made it harder to be taken seriously So far these allegations seem to be based purely on hallucinatory speculations fantastic theories loaded insinuations and are modeled on shoot-and-scoot tactics It is unsurprising to note that the claims have grown louder and shriller in accordance with the Oppositions’ dip in electoral fortunes and have found little support among the wider public beyond a section of "liberal" voices who still cannot come to grips with the post-2014 reality This clan drops all pretensions of rationality and backs bizarre theories if it smells even a smattering of a chance to peddle its agenda In one respect however the Opposition is right A grave crisis is staring at us Indian democracy is indeed in danger However it is in danger not because EVMs are unreliable or the electoral process is rigged but because the Opposition is convinced that the BJP is invincible Such a defeatist mindset strikes a cruel blow at the heart of democracy because rival parties must believe that it can beat the BJP instead of finding solace in bogus excuses The bogey of ‘faulty EVMs’ first surfaced after BJP’s massive electoral success in Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls The repercussions of that result were deep and enduring It broke the back of the Opposition’s nascent resistance and introduced such fatalism into their attitude that instead of trying to regroup and rebuild Opposition leaders started believing Modi cannot be beaten This defeatism led to the denial that their electoral loss is unconnected to their inability to impress the voters Blaming the EVMs and accusing the BJP of rigging is a natural consequence of this denial The defeated leaders could now free themselves of the responsibility for their defeat and reinvigorate party workers through active myth-making There are two problems with this approach however It reinforces the defeatism — because leaders can now immediately point to the EVMs in case they lose again and it eventually weakens the underpinnings of our democracy It doesn’t matter that these theories are unsupported by facts BSP supremo Mayawati and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav cried hoarse about how BJP has used EVMs to win Uttar Pradesh civic body polls and alleged that BJP’s performance has been better in places where EVMs were used and poor were voters cast paper ballots According to data released by the state Election Commission it was actually BSP which fared poorly where paper ballots were used In keeping with the trend the Congress on Saturday created huge noise over ‘rigged EVMs’ that were apparently "connected to external devices" through Bluetooth technology Congress candidate from Porbandar Arjun Modhwadia even "detected that the EVMs at three polling booths at Memanwada a Muslim-dominated area (were) connected to external devices through Bluetooth" He went on to claim that when "the Bluetooth of a mobile phone is turned on a device named ‘ECO 105’ is shown as available…" He raised a complaint with the Election Commission which promptly launched an inquiry Not surprisingly it emerged soon enough that Congress’s charges were baseless and that a "device named ECO-105" was in fact a mobile phone that apparently belonged to a

complaint lodged by Congress the Election Commission found that a booth worker had "switched on the Bluetooth device on his phone which showed ‘ECO 105’ a model of the Intex brand of phones and he raised an alarm that the EVM had been hacked We spend two hours locating that device Our EVMs are tamper-proof" No such issues reported till now Some EVMs replaced due to errors EVMs were updated with
