27th July 2020 In recent times India has seen social movements aimed at having a more progressive society which is diverse and sensitive towards inclusivity. ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, which would complete seven years in July, recently gained momentum in United States of America, and became the global revolution against discrimination based on skin colour. In February 2020, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, probably respecting the collective consciousness and will of the nation, put forth a proposal before the Parliament (‘Bill’) to amend the old Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisement) Act, 1954 (‘DMRA’). The main intent behind this Bill seems to be to curb promotion or advertisement of the so-called ‘quintessential image of a human’. Even before the enactment of the proposed Bill, some of the FMCG giants in India seemed to have embraced the proposed change – one of the leading FMCGs has renamed ‘Fair & Lovely’ products as ‘Glow & Lovely’.
Competition commission shackled: an analysis of the judgment by national company law appellate tribunal20th July 2020 More often than not, judgments come to be passed which are set to ruffle many a feather and are, rather, surprising, with all due regards. Not so long ago, one more was passed and it fit the bill in totality.

Financial Year 2019-2020 came to an end on March 31, 2020 with several nations of the world suspending air travel and closing borders to prevent spread of COVID-19 which caused mayhem in the last quarter. India was no exception, as the Government of India imposed lockdown with effect from March 25, 2020 leaving number of individuals trapped in India or stranded outside India contrary to their will and plans. Most of these individuals would, at present, be least bothered about their tax filings except few who planned their stay inside India or outside India to avail tax benefits for the Financial Year 2019-2020. However, the Income Tax Act, 1961, just like tax statutes in other nations, does not in itself distinguish between intended or unintended stay in India while determining the ‘residential status’ of an Individual which is pivotal in determination of the tax liability of such individual for the relevant financial year under Indian law.

Over the past few years, the Internet has seen a radical change wherein it has become a part of almost every single human being’s lifestyle. The Word Wide Web is a never-ending encyclopaedia that offers something to suit everyone’s liking. The Internet is like a genie that can fulfil its master’s most bizarre requests. One can go from reading about the ramifications of the First World War to watching cat videos in less than two clicks. The amount of information stored online is hard to fathom2 but we do know that there is information about all of us that is available online. This may include information that has either been uploaded by us or by a third person. Either way, you may or may not want such information to be accessible by the world. This right of yours i.e. the right to have information about you removed from the Internet is often referred to as the ‘Right to be Forgotten’.

13th March 2020 A BRIEF OVERVIEW:
In this rapid age of technology and internet, data is the biggest asset for an individual but, at the same time, his most vulnerable asset as well. Nearly every aspect of the daily life, including but not limited to, health services, banking, travel etc., requires us to share our personal information with some other person or organization for the same to be processed in order to extend the corresponding services to us. Some of that information is shared voluntarily and, some of it, involuntarily where we are forced to share that information in order to avail of the service required. A burning example of the latter would, arguably, be the access to the data which is virtually forked out of us in order to use mobile applications.
10th March 2020 With the coronavirus just raising its head in India apart from serious public health issues, various questions regarding performance/inability to perform commercial obligations and contracts by parties have come to the forefront. With the Finance Ministry clarifying that Force Majeure clauses can be invoked on account of the outbreak in appropriate cases and the virus not sparing anyone, it is advised that one should be well prepared for possible disruptions and the legal consequences thereof.
