Court stays Nepal-India deal on upgrading immigration system

Jul 8 2013, 1:16pm CDT | by

Kathmandu, July 8 (IANS) Nepal's Supreme Court Monday ordered the government not to implement a recent agreement signed with India on upgrading the immigration system at the capital city's international airport and setting up immigration offices in two border towns.

Kathmandu, July 8 — Nepal's Supreme Court Monday ordered the government not to implement a recent agreement signed with India on upgrading the immigration system at the capital city's international airport and setting up immigration offices in two border towns.

A day ahead of the visit of India's External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, a single-judge bench of Justice Tarka Raj Bhatta issued the stay order on setting up Indian immigration check-posts at Pashupatinagar and Lumbini.

A home secretary-level meeting between the two countries last month had reached the agreement regarding upgrading of the immigration system at Tribhuvan, the country's only international airport, and setting up Indian immigration offices in the two border towns.

The minutes of the home secretary-level meeting that concluded in Kathmandu June 1 said: "The Indian side proposed to establish immigration check points at Lumbini and Pashupatinagar. The Nepalese side agreed to it in principle and would officially respond through the diplomatic channel."

The meeting also agreed to the modernisation of the immigration system at the airport.

The Supreme Court was moved by petitioner Shree Prasad Pandit last week against the proposals.

Pandit termed the move an "attempt to violate national sovereignty" of Nepal.

He said that as per the previous Supreme Court order, any such move would require approval of parliament, and that the court should issue an order to the government not to move ahead with the proposal unless it is ratified by parliament.

The bench justified the stay order, saying there was a need for the apex court's intervention.

Indian Patients Lose under Indian Patent Regime

Sep 12 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: National Center for Policy Analysis

According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Global Intellectual Property Center, India ranks last in its list of 25 countries when it comes to intellectual property laws. NCPA Senior Fellow John Graham explains how the country's patent laws hurt Indian patients: because few drugs receive strong patent protection, drug-makers are loath to sell their medicines in India. Because of India's weak intellectual property regime, new drugs are immediately copied when the ...

(Clinical) Fear and Loathing in America

Sep 9 2014 11:45am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The world is more frightening and complex than ever. We are in more danger. We are less aware. We are nearing a war to end all wars. We are closer to death--metaphorical or literal. So say the pundits, at least. Indeed, with the reach of the media--and particularly news--it's easy to believe we're in constant danger--physical and cultural. But it's also somehow too convenient to think that the world is ...

Change Culture, Not Cabs: Woman-Only Taxis and Commodifying Female Fear

Sep 8 2014 1:59pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

SheTaxis (known as SheRides in New York City) is a newly-launched app that will help women-only passengers find women-only taxi drivers. If you are a woman, the creators argue, it makes sense to use this car service, because taking taxis and Ubers driven by men can be dangerous. There is a whole lot of money to be made helping women adapt to this problem. This approach to "keeping women safe" is based on the sex segregation model of harassm ...
