If the Survey is completed, the state will have to take appropriate decisions on the number of shelters required in the state. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Suraj Govindaraj said “State must be conscious of the fact that its failure to provide basic shelter to urban homeless may amount to violation of Right to Life guaranteed by Article 21 of Constitution of India. If poor homeless in the cities are without shelter, it is a violation of their Right to live a dignified life guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution of India.” The bench in its order noted that “We are dealing with the issue of providing shelters to urban homeless, the second issue with which we are concerned now is making provision for night shelters. State government has filed a statement of objections. The statement of objections is silent on the survey of urban homeless in the state of Karnataka.” It added “As per the list submitted to the court of the 64 shelters set up in the state, only 47 are functional. The capacity of functional centers in the city (Bengaluru) is not more than 300.” The bench then went through the order passed by the Supreme Court in the case of PUCL v. Union of India (Writ Petition No 196/2001), in which the State of Karnataka has submitted, as recorded in order dated May 5, 2010, that a comprehensive survey to identify urban homeless will be completed in six months and after survey is completed necessary action will be taken to provide basic facilities so that urban homeless are in position to enjoy their fundamental right to lead a life with dignity. The bench said “As stated earlier, the outcome of the survey is not placed on record.” It also recorded that the Apex court on May 9, 2011, issued specific directions to all states who have not set up night shelters to set up night shelters without further loss of time. The bench said “As stated earlier no material is placed on record to show how many night shelters set up in the state and if the same are set up, the details of the facilities there. We direct the state government to place on record all data regarding setting up of night shelters.” The court also directed the state government to respond to the survey report carried out by the petitioner PUCL. The report submitted contained a social audit of certain shelters in the city. Further, it directed the petitioner to submit the report of any further survey of shelters for the homeless, carried out by it to government advocate to enable him to bring it to notice of concerned authorities. The directions were given during the hearing The direction was given during the hearing of a petition filed by PEOPLES UNION OF CIVIL LIBERTIES KARNATAKA, which seeks implementation of State Government order dated 29.05.2014, in regards to Urban Homeless Shelters. The matter will be next heard on May 26.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Alternative deposits competition hots up following ‘Netflix-style’ subscription launch

first_imgInsurance and compliance giant Hamilton Fraser has launched its own alternative deposits renting product called Ome as demand for this kind of product from both agents and tenants has ramped up.Entering an increasingly crowded market that includes Zero Deposit and Flatfair, Ome will operate alongside Hamilton Fraser’s government-approved traditional mydeposits protection scheme.The key difference with its competitors is that the service will be a ‘Netflix’ style flexible subscription – so tenants will be able to sign up for as many or few months at they wish – but like other schemes will be based on membership of a scheme backed by insurance.CEO Eddie Hooker (pictured, above) says he has launched Ome despite initial concerns about alternative deposit products, but claims the pressures on letting agents brought about by the tenant fees ban, new Client Money Protection regulations and rising rents prompted him to bring forward his plans.Big brands“We also started to receive requests from some of the largest brands in the property industry to work together and build a product that could rival the ‘disrupters’ in the deposit market,” says Hooker.“These brands ranged from the largest tech brands in the industry to some of the largest insurance businesses that have interest in the private rental sector.”Hamilton Fraser has a ready market for its Ome. Through its existing businesses the company services over 15,000 letting agents, 200,000 landlords and over two million tenants, as well as registering over 150,000 new tenancies via mydeposits each year.Also, Ome will be served by the company’s in-house adjudication service, HF Resolution.Hooker says is company is launching the product in a way that won’t conflict with its existing, government-approved deposit protection scheme.Hamilton Fraser says it will ensure every tenant and landlord is ‘aware of the pros and cons’ of the different deposit protection options available to them via Ome.Read more about Hamilton Fraser.alternative deposits Ome matthew hooker Hamilton Fraser deposit-free renting Eddie Hooker November 28, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Saint Mary’s student launches poetry club

first_imgSophomore Claire Bleecker had an idea to create the first Saint Mary’s Poetry Club this year because she wanted to discuss new and different poetry with her fellow students. Now, her idea is starting to catch on. “There wasn’t a poetry outlet at all at Saint Mary’s … I’m sort of ignorant when it comes to poetry and I wanted to learn more about it and the club is forcing me to learn more about it,” Bleecker said. Bleecker said the club meets at Dalloway’s Clubhouse on Sundays at 6 p.m. She said she sends out a weekly theme via email before every meeting. “This week’s theme will be Irish poetry, last week it was imagery poetry and the first week was pick your favorite poet,” she said. Bleecker said she starts the meetings by introducing the theme and why it is relevant to the group. One by one, each member reads a short summary of her chosen poet’s life and then reads a selected piece. Club members discuss the meaning of the poem afterward and then the next person reads until everyone has read, she said. “It’s very intimate,” Bleecker said. “I think it’s easier to understand the poetry when the group reads it together.” Bleecker said she has big plans for this year’s meetings, including a William Butler Yeats night. Saint Mary’s professor Sr. Rosalind Clark will be a guest speaker that night to help the group discuss some of Yeats’s famous poems, Bleecker said. “I am also planning on having a poetry of the world night where I will bring in people to read from different countries to read poetry in their native language so that the night will be about listening to the sounds and rhythms, even if you don’t understand it, of the native language,” she said. Bleecker said one member in particular was excited to join the club because she had been introduced to authors such as Emily Dickinson and John Keats at her school, but now she has much more access to poetry that she would not have had in her home country. Bleecker also said the member was eager to learn about new poetry and the other member’s favorite poems. “And I felt the same way,” she said. “I’m going to be introduced to all these new things. I’m excited that other people are excited about poetry because I didn’t think they were going to be. I’m excited that other people are excited.”last_img read more
