The SC said transparency is the hallmark of selection procedure and not only bureaucrats but people across should be allowed to apply for the post
The Supreme Court on Thursday questioned the union government over lack of transparency in the appointment of Chief Vigilance Commissioner and Vigilance Commissioner.
The apex court said that transparency is the hallmark of selection procedure and people across should be allowed to apply for the post and not only bureaucrats.
The Attorney General has assured the Supreme Court that no final decision will be taken in the appointment of CVC during the pendency of the case.
CPIL, the NGO, refused to reveal the name of whistleblower who provided it documents against the CBI director claiming risk to life of that person
Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) on Thursday refused to reveal name of the whistleblower, who provided it documents against Ranjit Sinha, the director of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The NGO has levelled allegations against the CBI Director in the Supreme Court. In its plea, CPIL said, "The life of the whistleblower will be in danger if his/ her name is revealed".
Allegations against the CBI Director can be verified by examining the documents and guards who had manned his official residence, the NGO told the apex court.
The lawsuit seeks to recoup more than $500 million in relief for student borrowers who were coaxed into taking education loan
A US federal lawsuit filed against Corinthian Colleges alleges that the for-profit education company used deceptive advertising to lure tens of thousands of students into taking out private loans, and seeks to recoup more than $500 million in relief for those borrowers.
“For too many students, Corinthian has turned the American dream of higher education into an ongoing nightmare of debt and despair,” said Richard Corday, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which brought the complaint.
The lawsuit claims that Corinthian coaxed students — many from low-income families — into taking out loans for costly tuition expenses by falsely advertising job placement rates and career services that it couldn’t deliver. The company then engaged in a debt collection scheme that forced students to pay back those loans while still in school, the lawsuit alleges.
Last fall, California’s attorney general filed a similar lawsuit against the California-based company, which enrolls about 75,000 students nationwide under the names Everest, Heald, and WyoTech Colleges.
