'Fraudulent portals selling LED bulbs under UJALA'
The Union Ministry of Power on Monday warned the public against online vendors fraudulently selling 9W LED bulbs under the name of government schemes and even using Prime Minister Narendra Modi's images.
 
"Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) is hereby alerting its consumers of fraudulent websites selling 9W LED bulbs under the name of Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA) programme. These websites are not associated with the UJALA programme of EESL," a ministry statement said here on behalf of EESL.
 
It said two websites -- www.philips-led-at-10rs.in and pbs.twimg.com/media/CoGI9txWIAAybuk.jpg -- are responsible for misleading customers with promises of LED bulbs for as low as Re one.
 
The first of these two online vendors promises bulbs starting from Re one to Rs 13 for one watt to 13 watt bulbs.
 
The website also asks potential customers to share the website information with at least eight other people before proceeding to payment.
 
"EESL completely disowns and disclaims any relation with the link/URL and the contents provided by these link/URL. EESL or Prime Minister's Office does not endorse any of the claims or contents of such advertisements and these are an attempt to malign the name of EESL and Prime Minister's Office," the statement said.
 
"Further EESL will be informing the police about such fraudulent statements that are being made in the public and lodge an FIR," the statement said.
 
"We are keeping a tab on all malpractices that can harm the good efforts of EESL to provide quality products to our consumers and are taking legal routes to address such fraudulent issues. We urge consumers to purchase LED bulbs under the UJALA scheme only in the designated distribution centres," said the statement, citing EESL Managing Director Saurabh Kumar.

SC notice to Mallya on contempt plea by lender banks
The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to businessman Vijay Mallya on a plea by the lenders seeking contempt proceedings against him for not making full disclosure of assets held by him, his wife and children in India and abroad.
 
As the bench of Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman issued notice to Mallya, who is the chairman of the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the court that the businessman was not candid about the court order and he was accountable for the "public money" that he owed to the lenders.
 
Rohatgi said Mallya had not disclosed US $45 million he had got from British liquor company Diageo. 
 
The petitioner -- a consortium of banks led by the State Bank of India (SBI) that lent money to Kingfisher Airlines -- told the court that Mallya has not complied with its April 7 order asking him to fully disclose the details of assets held by him, his wife and children.
 
The top court by its April 7 order had directed Mallya to disclose all the assets -- movable and immovable, tangible and intangible -- and other shareholdings and beneficial interests in India and abroad held by him, his wife and children by April 21.
 
By the April 7 order, the court had also asked Mallya to indicate the amount that he was prepared to deposit before it to show his bona fides for a meaningful negotiation with the banks seeking the recovery of loans advanced to Kingfisher Airlines.
 
The consortium of 13 banks headed by the SBI is seeking the recovery of more than Rs 9,000 crore in the principal and interest, loaned to Mallya's Kingfisher Airlines.

Salman Khan acquitted in poaching cases
The Rajasthan High Court on Monday acquitted Bollywood actor Salman Khan in the 18-year-old blackbuck and chinkara poaching cases.
 
Salman had appealed before the Jodhpur bench of the high court challenging a lower court verdict handing him a one and five-years term in the two separate cases of poaching. 
 
The hearing was completed in the last week of May and the order reserved by the high court.
 
"He has been acquitted in both the cases by the high court," Salman's counsel Hastimal Saraswat said.
 
Khan was accused of killing a blackbuck and chinkara in two separate incidents.
 
One of the animals was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998.
 
Shooting for the film "Hum Saath Sath Hain" was on at the time.
 
Salman had earlier been lodged in Jodhpur jail in the cases.
