SC to hear Digvijaya's plea on Vyapam on July 9
The Supreme Court will hear on Thursday a plea by Congress leader Digvijaya Singh and three whistle-blowers seeking an apex court monitored CBI probe into Vyapam scam and the spate of deaths of the people related to it.
 
An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu on Tuesday said these petitions would be taken up on July 9 along with two others seeking removal of Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav so that he could be prosecuted for his alleged involvement in the scam.
 
Digvijaya Singh and the three whistle-blowers - Ashish Chaturvedi, Anand Rai and Prashant Pandey - while demanding for a SC-monitored CBI probe said they have no faith in the Special Task Force that is monitoring the SIT probe into the scam.
 
The petition of the Congress leader and the three whistle-blowers were mentioned by senior counsel Vivek Tankha and Indira Jaising.

RBI: RBI Extends the Date for Withdrawal of Pre-2005 Series Banknotes
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has extended the date for the public to exchange their pre-2005 banknotes up to 31 December 2015. In December 2014, RBI had set the last date as 30 June 2015.
 
Soliciting cooperation from the  public, RBI has urged people to deposit the old notes in their bank accounts or exchange them at a bank branch convenient to them. RBI has stated that the notes can be exchanged for their full value. It has also clarified that all such notes continue to remain legal tender.
 
Explaining the move, RBI said that the banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi series have now been in circulation for a decade. A majority of the old banknotes have been withdrawn through bank branches. It has, therefore, decided to withdraw the remaining old design notes from circulation.

Tax: All I-T Refunds To Be Credited Directly in Bank Accounts: CBDT

The income-tax department has put in motion a new plan which will ensure that any refund on tax paid is safely deposited in the taxpayer’s personal bank account as soon as it is processed and released. The department is also planning to fully adopt and use banking services to end the current system of sending I-T refunds over the value of Rs50,000 via cheques through the postal department. CBDT chairperson, Anita Kapur, said the plan is being worked out on priority and is aimed at bringing an end to taxpayers’ grievances regarding this particular service.
