Taking note of an order for grant of bail passed by the Special Judge trying offences under the NDPS Act, the single bench of Justice Rekha Mittal remarked, “The Special Judge either did not keep herself updated with the latest position in law or did not bother to examine the case in the light of latest judgment of Hon’ble the Supreme Court Hira Singh and another Vs. Union of India and another, 2020(2) RCR (Criminal) 523…” The Court was hearing the bail plea of one Mandeep Singh, booked under the NDPS Act for possession of more than permitted quantity of contraband. One of the issues involved in the matter was whether recovery of contraband was to be taken as a commercial or non-commercial quantity. The Petitioner-accused, and his co-accused Gurpreet Singh, were apprehended in possession of 420 Lomotil tablets and 420 Alprax05 tablets (both substances containing mixed salts). The Special Judge had allowed the bail plea of the latter holding that due to different salt, the material falls within non commercial range. The High Court noted that the Special Judge had erred in law as it is settled position that in case of seizure of mixture of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances with one or more neutral substance(s), quantity of neutral substance(s) is not to be excluded and to be taken into consideration along with actual content by weight of offending drug, while determining small or commercial quantity of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances. This position was settled by a 3-Judge bench of the Apex Court in April this year, in the case of Hira Singh. NDPS – Quantity Of Neutral Substances In Mixture Must Be Taken Into Account With Actual Drug Weight To Determine ‘Small Or Commercial Quantity’ : SC Considering the statement of objects and reasons of the NDPS Act, the Top Court had observed, “it was never the intention of the legislature to exclude the quantity of neutral substance and to consider only the actual content by weight of offending drug which is relevant for the purpose of determining whether it would constitute small quantity or commercial quantity”. The bench also noted that drugs are mostly sold as a mixture, and never in a pure form. Through this case, the bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra, Indira Banerjee and M R Shah overruled the 2008 decision E. Micheal Raj v. Intelligence Officer, Narcotic Control Bureau, which had held that only the actual weight of the drug in a mixture will matter under the NDPS Act, and that the weight of the neutral substances can be excluded.

Race tests managers’ skills

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. A management college is using boat crews in the world’s toughest yacht race to research senior management skills.Researchers will look at the key factors marking exceptional performance of teams and leaders in the BT Global Challenge 2000-2001, which started on 10 September.Data on personality, personal competencies, emotional intelligence, motivation and team dynamics has been collected from skippers and crew since January, when they started to prepare for the race.British Airways, Microsoft and the Rank Group are among the 16 major organisations that will gain unique insights into developing high performance teams.The joint project, the Inspirational Intelligence Research Forum, has been developed by Henley Management College and development consultancy Inspiring Performance, which is responsible for the selection and training of skippers.Emotional intelligence experts Dr Malcolm Higgs and Professor Victor Dulewicz, of Henley College, will produce a report on their findings at the end of the race.Higgs, a senior member of Henley College’s human resources and organisational behaviour faculty, said, “The project explores team working in extreme conditions. We will be measuring the emotional intelligence of skippers before and after the race to see how the experience has changed their abilities.”John Renz, HR director at law firm CMS Cameron McKenna, said, “We are healthily cynical about putting employees in situations that are far removed from the work context. But emotional intelligence is high on our agenda – you could be the best lawyer in the world, but if you cannot relate to clients then you are not much use to us.” By Richard Staines Previous Article Next Article Race tests managers’ skillsOn 19 Sep 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more

#JaVotes2016: No cooking gas, no vote

first_img Various party affiliates have, however, been making the rounds in vehicles in an effort to mobilise voters. One resident, who was offered a lift to the polling station told The Gleaner that she refused, as she has no reason to vote.

Bennett says she has voted in past elections, but will not yield unless her immediate needs are met, which at this time is gas to prepare her next meal.
