Nine of the 54 members of the Rajya Sabha, who had proposed the initiation of proceedings against him, have withdrawn their signatures. . Proceedings to remove a judge, which require an ad- dress to the President by a special majority of both Houses of Parliament, cannot be initiated without the signatures of at least 50 members of the Rajya Sabha or 100 members of the Lok Sabha. . If such a motion gets admitted in a House, a three-member committee investigates the charges. If it finds the judge guilty of misbehaviour or incapacity, the House in which the motion was initiated, must pass it with a two-thirds majority, followed by a similar passage by the other House. [Article- 124(4):217] Question: If such judges are being appointed through collegium process, that means something is amiss with collegium and if that is the case, why did Judiciary repeal NJAC in Oct. 2015?

Page 13: Business News- Builders told to pass on GST benefits, Anti- Profiteering section 17 The CBEC said that it has received reports that builders are forcing customers to pay the entire cost of the flat before July 1 and pay the current tax rate of 55% or pay l 2% on any payments made after July I . Suppose you buy a flat for crore .The builder charges 4.5% service tax, and 1% composition So, that's 5.5 lakh in tax. . However, the builder was buying inputs on which there was excise duty and VAT, and there was no credit on this. When he factors this in, then, say that his cost of building the flat was 95 lakh and 5 lakh were the input costs. -Using the same example, in GST the cost of the builder will be 95 lakh, but the 5 lakh that is excise and VAT on inputs will no longer be a cost. So, ideally, he should say the cost of the building is 95 lakh and then the customer has to pay the 12% GST on that 95 lakh. But what the builders are trying to do is tell the customers that since they have already agreed to pay crore forthe flat, the 12% tax will apply on that l crore and not on the new cost of the flat, which is 95 lakh.
