BCCI proud of Indian team despite semifinal exit
BCCI president Jagmohan Dlamiya said on Friday the Indian board is proud of its team as it "played some outstanding cricket" in the World Cup Down Under before crashing out in the semi-finals against Australia.
 
In its quest to retain its title, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-captained side remained undefeated in the group stage. They overwhelmed Bangladesh in the quarter-finals. But their run was halted by co-hosts and four-time champions Australia in the last eight stage with a 95-run victory on Thursday in Sydney.
 
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Dalmiya said the team has brought a lot of joy to millions of fans.
 
“I congratulate the entire Indian cricket team for having played some outstanding cricket in the World Cup 2015. They have indeed displayed some admirable skills while playing the game in its true spirit, and thereby, bringing joy to millions of cricket fans," Dalmiya said in a release.
 
"In spite of the disappointment due to the loss in the semi-final, the fact that the impending generation has showed the desired potential to take Indian cricket to greater heights is quite gratifying.”
 
BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur took the opportunity to thank the Indian cricket fans for supporting the team.
 
“Being present at the venue and having witnessed the match, I was privy to the excitement and joy that our Indian team brings to the spectators," he said.
 
"I take this opportunity to thank all our fans across the world and especially those who were present for the semi-final and supported Team India," Anurag added.
 
The secretary also congratulated the members of the team for "their outstanding performance while upholding the values which have long embodied the game of cricket".

Notaries can’t issue marriage registration certificates: HC

As per the law, marriages can be registered only with the Registrar of Marriage, who is authorised to issue marriage registration certificate

 

The Karnataka High Court asked the Law Secretary to issue a circular to all notaries across the State directing them not to issue ‘marriage registration certificates’ as the law did not authorise them to issue such certificate. The court directed the Registrar of the City Civil and Sessions Courts, Bangalore, to issue similar circular restraining notaries from issuing certificates solemnising marriage.
 
As per the law, the marriages can be registered only with the Registrar of Marriage, who is authorised to issue marriage registration certificate. A Division Bench comprising Justice K.L. Manjunath and Justice Ravi Malimath issued the directions when it noticed a ‘marriage certificate’, issued by a notary at the City Civil and Sessions Courts complex in Bangalore, during the hearing of a habeas corpus writ petition.
 
“We are noticing that the notaries are issuing such certificates in respect of declaration of marriage. In fact, they [notaries] are playing with lives of the people. Notaries are misleading people by issuing such certificates. It is not a valid document,” the Bench observed. The Bench issued the direction after summoning the Registrar of the City Civil and Sessions Court and the notary, who had issued the certificate. The notary apologised to the court.
 
Manoj had filed the petition seeking a direction to the police to produce his “wife”, while alleging she was in the illegal custody of her mother and brother-in-law. The petitioner had produced a certificate issued by the notary, solemnising their marriage, to claim that he had married her in May 2012. However, the police investigation found that the woman, a divorcee, did not marry Manoj after finding out that she would not have a comfortable life with him.

SC notice on reservation in legislatures
The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the central and the state governments on a PIL seeking increase the SC/ST representation of in the parliament and state assemblies in proportion to their increased population across the country.
 
An apex court bench of Chief Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra issued notice after senior counsel Kiran Suri told the court that since 2002 to 2011, 529 new castes have been added to SC/ST list and that alone added another five crore to the SC/ST population.
 
Petitioner Puran Singh, a former Indian Foreign Service officer, has contended that despite increase in the SC/ST population on account of the addition of more categories, there was no proportionate increase in SC/ST seats in the parliament and state assemblies.
