When the  petition was filed there were 33 cases, and the infections have escalated. Doctors need high speed net for accessing latest updates on COVID-19, and for online consultation with patients.”Right to access for doctors is inherent under Article 21. Deprivation of fundamental rights has to be judged in light of the fact that theres a #pandemic & restrictions have been placed on people to access a doctor and on children to access a school” – Ahmadi#JammuAndKashmir— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 4, 2020″If you want to see a YouTube video, consult a doctor, even if you want to access the court through the VidYo app for an SC hearing, you require a 4G network connection”, he stressed. Even the ‘Aarogya Setu’ app will not work on 2G speed, he said.When the bench posed a query regarding the need to account for security concerns raised by the State, Ahmadi replied that the during the times of pandemic, the fundamental right to access health care should also be given importance.Seeking to rebut the government’s claims that high speed net will lead to terrorism, Ahmadi submitted that most cases of terrorism happened in the region when there was no internet at all. The State has not shown any nexus between 4G and terrorism.”It’s for the government to explain how internet restriction is justified. Court cannot mechanically defer to the government’s statement that the restriction is justified. Bald statements that healthcare and access to information have not been effected are unfounded.”, he submitted.Senior Advocate Salman Kurshid, appearing for Private Schools Association of J&K, submitted that the speed restrictions have affected online education.”Private schools are under government directions to provide education via Video-conferencing. We have obligation under Right to Education Act to provide education”, he submitted.The Court also heard Advocate Soayib Qureshi, who appeared as party-in-person and submitted that the speed restrictions violated the principles of reasonableness and proportionality discussed by the SC in the Anuradha Bhasin case.Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for Central Government, defended the speed restrictions as a necessary measure to control terrorism in the region.”There are good reasons why only fixed line internet was permitted (in J&K). With that, we can keep check on who is giving information and disseminating terrorist propaganda.”, he said.”Pleas have to be examined against larger public interest of national security. If they say they cannot access hospital/medical information. I’m proceeding with the assumption that claim to FR violation is Justified. However, national security is paramount”: AG#JammuAndKashmir— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 4, 2020AG stressed that it was a “policy decision” of the Government, in which the Court should not interfere.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for J&K administration, submitted that health services are working in J&K even with the speed restrictions.The SG also said that there was no information of anyone dying of COVID-19 because of lack of internet access.”There are other areas in the country where there is either no internet or only 2G is available. There is no information of someone dying of COVID19 because they didn’t have internet access!”, the SG submitted.The SG added that while landlines can be traced, mobile phones could be easily thrown away after being used for “anti-national” activities.SG Tushar Mehta: “There are other areas in the country [apart from #JammuAndKashmir] where there is either no internet or only 2G is available. There is no information of someone dying of #COVID19 because they didn’t have #internet access!”— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 4, 2020In rejoinder, Senior Advocate Ahmadi submitted that the J&K administration has not carried out “periodic review” of the internet restrictions as mandated by the Anuradha Bhasin judgment.”I have repeatedly pointed out why 2G network is not enough for an interactive class. It is a matter of elementary knowledge that 2G can’t be used for video”, Ahmadi submitted in rejoinder.”Practically, one can’t download because the application “gets timed out” on a 2G network. It makes no sense for a student trying to study on it”, he added.He further submitted that the secondary schools students of the region are at a disadvantage while competing with students from other parts of the country having 4G net access.Ahmadi urged the Court to allow the opening of high-speed internet at least on a “trial basis”.”At least on a trial basis open up the faster internet speeds. See how it works. Entire Jammu is peaceful. Large parts of Kashmir are peaceful. But if you lock the well there is be problem”, he submitted.Senior Advocate Salman Khurshid, in his rejoinder, submitted that there are options for blocking problematic sites, which should be explored instead of cutting off 4G completely.The Central government had imposed a complete communications blackout in the erstwhile state of J&K in August 2019, right after abrogation of Article 370. Five months later in January 2020, on the basis of a Supreme Court order, the services were partially restored, only at 2G speed for mobile users. Access was provided only to a selected “white-listed” sites, and social media was completely blocked. The Supreme Court had observed that indefinite suspension of internet is not permissible and restrictions on internet have to follow the principles of proportionality under Article 19(2). The blockade on social media was lifted on March 4, but the speed was retained as 2G for mobile data.After that, the J&K Administration passed several orders from time to time, retaining the speed restrictions. As per the latest order passed on April 27, the restrictions have been extended till May 11.The administration stated that the speed restrictions have not affected COVID-19 control measures and online education.Click here for the petition challenging the speed restrictionsClick here for the additional application filed by the petitionersClick here to read the reply affidavit of the GovernmentClick Here To Download Written Submission of Petitioner Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Does taxing the wealthy really drive them away?

first_img Tags Share via Shortlink Gov. Phil Murphy (left) and billionaire David TepperThis year’s spring housing market came a couple of months later than usual to the leafy suburbs of New Jersey. But it was worth the wait.Michele Kolsky-Assatly, a veteran agent with Coldwell Banker focused on Bergen County’s luxury market, has been busier than ever with the exodus of families from New York City. “They never want to be locked up in a high-rise again,” Kolsky-Assatly said. “Die-hard New Yorkers, hedge fund Wall Street businessmen who never thought they would leave the city, are leaving or have left.”If there were ever a time when a state could jack up income taxes on high earners without luxury-market brokers frothing at the mouth, this was it.Last month, New Jersey slapped its top marginal rate of 10.75 percent — which had applied to those earning more than $5 million annually — on households making as little as $1 million. The 20 percent rate bump is retroactive to Jan. 1. Pushed through by Gov. Phil Murphy, it will generate $390 million a year for the state’s Covid-battered budget.ADVERTISEMENT“The very high earners were already paying the high rate,” said E.J. McMahon, research director of the Empire Center for Public Policy, a think tank. “Now they’re hitting the mere million-dollar earners, who would be prime customers for luxury housing.”So-called millionaires’ taxes sometimes draw howls from sellers of high-end real estate. But this one drew no great protest, in part because the pandemic has already put the market for larger New Jersey homes into overdrive. Moreover, Kolsky-Assatly said, the state’s high taxes are well known to homebuyers.“The uptick of taxes on millionaires, I can’t see it hurting us, really, because the people that are buying are wealthy people,” she said. “I don’t know that that will take precedence over lifestyle.” Space and privacy are the needs of the moment. Before the coronavirus, young families were flocking to transit-oriented neighborhoods with walkable downtowns. Now, however, they are seeking out suburbs offering more space to work from home. Single-family homes with backyards are flying off the shelves. Mansions that had been out of favor in recent years are selling, too.“Lots and lots of people are bidding on houses,” said Gene Amsel, president of Greater Bergen Realtors, a trade organization serving 7,500 agents in Bergen, Hudson and Passaic counties. “Are they coming from New York City? Are they coming from Hoboken? Are they coming from other areas? Yes to everything.”From January to September, 595 New Jersey homes priced north of $2.5 million went into contract, up 67 percent year-over-year, according to Matawan, New Jersey-based appraisal firm Otteau Group.The volume of contracts on homes priced between $1 million and $2.5 million also surged, to 4,119, up 40 percent year-over-year. The increase was 31 percent for $600,000-to-$999,999 homes and 26 percent for $400,000-to-$599,000 homes. Contract signings for homes cheaper than that actually fell, by 4 percent.In other words, the more expensive the homes, the greater the percentage increase in sales this year has been. (See chart.)Upscale neighborhoods in eastern Bergen — such as Alpine, Tenafly, Cresskill, Demarest, Englewood and Englewood Cliffs — as well as Saddle River are among the popular destinations, Kolsky-Assatly said.“Tax policies at this point pale in comparison to the broader effect of the pandemic on the real estate market,” said James Parrott, director of economic and fiscal policies at the Center for New York City Affairs at the New School.People on the moveCritics of raising taxes on the rich warn that over time it will drive high earners to lower-tax states, depressing the luxury market. They note that moving is easier for the wealthy, who often already have homes in lower-tax states.“The class of people we’re talking about have a second home,” said McMahon. “At the very least they have a Florida home, and if they’re skiers, a Colorado home.”But advocates of millionaires’ taxes say wealthy families typically choose a primary residence based on what they want from their lives, not on tax rates.Take billionaire David Tepper. The hedge funder was the wealthiest person in New Jersey when he declared himself a resident of zero-income-tax Florida in 2015, prompting some New Jersey lawmakers to say the state’s top tax rate, which had risen to 8.97 percent from 6.37 percent in 1996, was scaring off the rich. (Tepper’s mother and sister were living in Florida.)But Tepper, who owns the Carolina Panthers, recently moved back to the Garden State. Upon his return, he reportedly called New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney and said the state could expect about $120 million in income taxes from him, according to media reports. Tepper could not be reached for comment.The millionaire’s burden New Jersey is hardly the first state to turn to millionaires during a budget emergency. New York enacted a new tax in 2009 to help fill a deficit caused by the financial crisis. The rate was set at 8.97 percent on all incomes above $500,000.The measure was slated to phase out in three years to make it more politically palatable for legislators, notably the Republicans who controlled New York’s Senate, and perhaps so high earners would be less likely to relocate. But rather than let it expire, legislators extended it in 2012, lowering the rate slightly to 8.82 percent and sparing taxpayers who earned less than $1 million. It was later extended twice more, most recently through 2024, wiping out any notion that it is “temporary.”But evidence that it would backfire has not materialized. Although Rochester billionaire Tom Golisano in 2009 changed his residency to his Florida home, declaring it would save him $13,000 a day, few magnates followed the Paychex founder’s lead, and revenue from high earners kept growing.The total tax liability of those earning $1 million or more annually rose from $15.9 billion in 2012 to $19.3 billion in 2018, the most recent year for which data was available, according to Freeman Kloppott, a spokesperson for the state Division of Budget.“Some people do move, but the net benefit to the taxing jurisdiction is that they see a pretty significant increase in revenue,” Parrott said of new taxes on high earners.The millionaires’ tax itself nets New York state north of $4 billion every year, not including what New York City reaps from its own income tax of nearly 4 percent. The combined city and state tax rate on high earners, approximately 12.6 percent, still exceeds New Jersey’s new rate by nearly 2 percentage points.New York last year also raised its mansion tax, which had been 1 percent for homes sold for more than $1 million. The change, applied only to New York City, adopted a sliding scale with the top rate of 3.9 percent for a home sale of more than $25 million. The city’s luxury market boomed during the first five or six years of the millionaires’ tax, then ebbed in the second half of the 2010s. Jonathan Miller, CEO of appraisal firm Miller Samuel and the author of Douglas Elliman’s monthly market reports, said the new mansion tax in particular caused a “significant drop-off in higher-end sales” in the city.“The reason for that is because the cost of living in that location became higher,” Miller said. Miller cautioned that while he understands New Jersey’s immediate fiscal needs, the tax may end up negatively affecting the state’s long-term financial health.“You’re going to drive away the higher-end tax base, which could have the impact of reducing demand for higher-end real estate, and taxes and other revenue that they generate for the state,” he said.But studies have found New Jersey’s and California’s taxes on the rich have a small effect on their location decisions, said Parrott, noting that the analyses predate the federal tax reform that took effect in 2018.His own review of the New York data found that after its millionaires’ tax was enacted, the number of high-income earners in the state rose in line with the increase around the country.“It shows there are certainly some people who move in the wake of those changes,” Parrott said of the body of research. “We cannot pinpoint exactly how many.”Unanswered questions Potential buyers who pay attention to tax policy have more to worry about than New Jersey’s expanded millionaires’ tax, the Empire Center’s McMahon noted. If Democrats capture the White House and Senate, they are sure to raise taxes on the wealthy, which is part of Joe Biden’s platform, he said.“Crucial aspects of tax policy as it affects those very people are completely up in the air now,” said McMahon.Even if people react to New Jersey’s latest tax hike, the market will eventually adjust, said Greater Bergen Realtors’ Amsel. He recalled the impact of the federal tax overhaul’s capping of the state and local tax deduction on federal tax returns at $10,000.When the SALT cap took effect in 2018, New Jersey’s luxury market slowed down for a while. It picked back up eventually, Amsel said, because families realized New Jersey’s public schools are still worth the fatter tax bills. If and when the nation brings the coronavirus under control, the state’s millionaires’ tax will become part of the calculus for wealthy buyers deciding whether to move back to New York City, according to Jeffrey Otteau, president of the Otteau Group.“At that point, the housing market will need to stand on its own two legs,” Otteau said. “The increase in purchasing demand in the suburbs is going to normalize. It’s going to slow down a lot. And the more urban real estate markets are going to recover.”— Erik Engquist contributed reporting Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink New Jerseytaxeslast_img read more

Chairs update on semester progress

first_imgBecause of the new Senate structure established this year, student government department chairs no longer attend the weekly meetings to give updates from their various committees.  However, at Wednesday’s meeting, each department head came to give an update on each group’s work so far this semester. “Hopefully this will give you a good idea of what student government has been working on,” student body vice president Katie Rose said.   Director of campus technology Yiting Zheng spoke about new mobile sites and printing problems. “We have added grade and course search to the mobile Notre Dame website [] so you can access that on your phone, in addition to laundry view and campus maps,” Zheng said.  “We have also been working with printers, both making sure printers in dorms are working and trying to get printers in O’Shaughnessy Hall.” Junior Liza Manfred from the Department of Constituent Services talked about future plans for fielding student suggestions.  “Essentially what we’re going to do from here is act on suggestions and responses we heard and figure out a way to stay in touch with the student body a little more regularly,” Manfred said. The Department of Internal Affairs, represented by senior Ben Noe, is not only responsible for the new Senate structure but also for the creation of the two newest department representatives, athletics and campus ministry. Junior Brendan Dolan represents the athletics department and explained their first initiatives. “Our main goal was to get on board with the Leprechaun Legion,” Dolan said. “We worked on music in the stadium, the ticket sharing program for basketball and trying to get NDTV to stream games that are streamed online at” Junior Parker Dwyer updated the group on the Department of Residence Life. “We have been working on the installation of hydration stations in the Rock, Rolf’s and all the halls,” Dwyer said.  “We also submitted an accelerated hand dryer request like the ones in LaFortune [Student Center] and talked with food services to work on doing away with meal times so you can get, say, three meals a day without having to wait for the lunch shift to end and the dinner shift to start.” Junior Michael Masi from the Department of University Affairs discussed the emphasis on campus safety. “After some recent accidents and incidents with cross walks and things like that campus safety has really been a big concern of mine,” Masi said.  “We have expanded Safe Walk services by adding a golf cart to reach towards Saint Mary’s College, Eddy Street Commons and several popular off-campus student housing sites.” Sophomore Ernst Cleofe, head of the Diversity Council, and has been working on three specific goals. “Our three goals have been to continue working with the Diversity Council, trying to figure out where they’re going in the future, trying to keep momentum with the Call to Action movement and promoting a generally welcoming atmosphere on campus,” Cleofe said. Sophomore Matt Devine from the Department of Gender Issues described their attempt to de-formalize the issue of gender interaction on campus. “One of the main pushes we’ve been doing is changing the way we talk about gender on campus or trying to get students to speak about them at all,” Devine said.  “All freshmen attend certain talks to frame the way their four years progress, and we want to make these discussions more informal – not a segmented dialogue but a continuous conversation.”last_img read more

Investment returns for renewable energy blow past oil and gas sector over last 12 months

first_imgInvestment returns for renewable energy blow past oil and gas sector over last 12 months FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):The fortunes of renewable energy and fossil-fuel investors have diverged dramatically in the past year, with shares in wind and solar companies boosted by long-term growth forecasts, while oil and gas producers face deep skepticism that their newfound capital discipline will last.During the past 12 months, an equally weighted index of North American renewable power producers has risen by 35.3%, compared to a 53.6% drop in the S&P Oil & Gas Exploration and Production Select Industry Index. The outperformance of renewable energy stocks continues a years-long trend.Investor interest in “clean tech” is at its highest since before the 2008 financial crisis, driven by a “potent combination” of technological and political tailwinds, Pavel Molchanov, an equity analyst at Raymond James & Associates, wrote in an Oct. 1 research report.In the oil and gas market, meanwhile, producers with a history of living beyond their means have tried to assure investors of their commitment to cutting spending and debt and growing free cash flow. But there is a “widespread” belief that the cautious approach may be short-lived, Molchanov wrote in an email.Gas producers are trying to adjust their financial strategies amid a U.S. gas glut that has weighed on prices and battered shares of Appalachian drillers. As long as crude prices stay above $50 per barrel and keep Permian oil drilling in business, gas prices and gas stocks could be spending the next four to five years in the cellar waiting for more LNG demand to build, according to Sanford C. Bernstein analyst Jean Ann Salisbury.Potentially clouding the outlook further for E&P companies is the rising popularity of ESG investing and what Morningstar analysts say is a looming battle for market share in the power sector between natural gas and renewables. “Renewable energy has policy momentum, and its costs are now competitive with natural gas generation even at today’s low gas prices and without tax subsidies,” the Morningstar analysts said in an Oct. 9 report. “But gas generators offer grid reliability, a key competitive advantage.”More ($): Gulf widens between renewable and beaten-down E&P stockslast_img read more

Boca Juniors lose CAS appeal over 2018 Libertadores final

first_img Loading… The legal fallout from the violence surrounding the 2018 Copa Libertadores final ended on Tuesday with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ordering River Plate to play two matches behind closed doors. CAS that it “considered that the appropriate sanction to be imposed on River Plate for the bus attack was two matches behind closed doors, to be applied to River Plate’s next two home matches in the Copa Libertadores.” Read Also: Barcelona star continues road to recovery on injured knee After River won 3-1 to take the title 5-3 on aggregate, Boca resumed their demand that they be handed the title. The South American Football Federation (CONMEBOL) rejected Boca’s argument but ordered River to play two games in the Copa behind closed doors. Boca appealed to CAS. CAS however backed CONMEBOL, saying that “the disqualification of River Plate from the 2018 Copa Libertadores … would have been excessive”.

River fans attacked the team bus of visiting Buenos Aires rivals Boca Juniors before the second leg of the continental final in November 2018, throwing rocks that broke the windows and injured some players.
