Legal Developments23rd June 2021
IntroductionLately, during Covid-19 pandemic, all of us have learnt our dependency on the technology, either while working from home, or students attending their classes online or using internet banking services. Equally, there’s been observed a significant surge in the sale of technology products like laptops, mobiles and workstations during the last one year across the world. The sooner we embrace the efficiency of small technology in our lives, the more beneficial it will be. It is predicted that, by the end of 2021, the technology industry would reach an all-time high of $5 trillion. Deloitte, a leading surveyor has forecast that the upcoming service technologies like global public cloud service would reach a revenue of $308.5 billion in 2021. The dependency on technology and the means which carry them has never been more. These facts and figures are not unknown to the corporations in technology industry. The issue arises, when the said corporations treat its consumers as lab rats by attempting experiments with the latter being the ultimate loser rather than a beneficiary. This article analyses one such noteworthy case, when Apple Inc. decided not to have chargers in the smartphone boxes relying on ‘environmental reasons’.
4th February 2021 There was a time, when internet was making inroads, that technology was the flavour of the day. Technology companies which started during that era became market leaders and, for long, they were revered and their actions went, virtually, unchecked. This reverence was owing to the extent to which they made our lives easy but, it was for this reason, that they pervaded nearly every facet of our existence.
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.
5th June 2020
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.

“The right to be forgotten is an idea that attempts to instil the limitations of memory into an otherwise limitless digital sphere”
-Justice B.N. Srikrishna Committee1
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’.

The Government of India vide Notification dated 24.03.2020 directed a nationwide lockdown in order to contain the spread of the Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19); commencing with effect from 25.03.2020.
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.
