On March 1, 2017, the company changed how it manages the mortgage rate lock extension process to alleviate this problem and ensure consistency through the use of a review team that will review all requests and apply Wells Fargo’s policy.Wells Fargo expects the first customer communications and refunds to go out in Q4 2017.“A total of approximately $98 million in rate lock extension fees were assessed to about 110,000 borrowers during the period in question, although the company believes a substantial number of those fees were appropriately charged under its policy,” the release stated.Due to the fact that not all fees assessed were paid and some have already been refunded, Wells Fargo anticipates the amount refunded to likely be lower.

He sought relief for the consumers as they are being threatened with disconnection by such companies in case they are unable to pay the bills. Division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice AS Gadkari recorded that the previous decision disposing of two similar PILs on the issue of inflated bills is applicable to the said case as well. At the outset, appearing on behalf of the petitioner, Advocate Rohan Savant along with Kiran Gandhi, counsel for Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd, BEST’s lawyer Advocate Arsh Misra and Additional Government Pleader Abhay Patki referred to the previous order disposing of two similar PILs and contended that the concerns raised in the present PIL are squarely covered by such judgment and order and no interference is warranted at this stage. On the other hand, petitioner’s counsel Advocate Rohan Savant, argued that during the period of the lock-down, the consumers are disabled from approaching the Grievance Redressal Officer and in view thereof, the dispute resolution mechanism which is otherwise available under the regulations framed by the Commission is not an efficacious remedy, which could be availed of by the consumers. Moreover, notices are being issued by the distribution licensees threatening disconnection of supply of electricity if the charges were not cleared by the due date. Thus, the order of the co-ordinate Bench notwithstanding, Court ought to intervene to set things right, Savant said. The bench observed- “We have heard the parties and perused the materials on record. The decision of the coordinate Bench in Mahibub D Shaikh (supra), we are in agreement with learned advocates for the respondents, does cover the concerns expressed in this PIL petition. However, we wish to record our own conclusions in respect of the prayers in this petition in the light of the press note issued by the Commission, referred to above, and the extant law.” Furthermore, Court said that the tariff order dated April 1, 2020 having in fact prescribed lesser energy charges, it is meant to ensure the benefit of the consumers. However, if there has been any instance of a distribution licensee not following the tariff order dated 1st April, 2020, as contended by Mr. Savant, it would be open to an aggrieved individual consumer to draw the attention of the Grievance Redressal Officer to such aspect and to have a decision thereon rendered by him, Court concluded. Referring to prayer clause (c) of the PIL seeking direction on the respondents to grant concessions to the consumers, Court said- “We hold that no Mandamus would lie seeking direction for grant of a concession, as has been held by the Supreme Court in K.V. Rajalakshmiah Setty and Ors. Vs. State of Mysore and Ors. In that view of the matter, we decline prayer (c).” Whereas, prayer clauses (d) and (e), seek directions for the respondents not to levy any penalty for non-payment of electricity bills as well as not to disconnect the supply of electricity for non-payment of such bills. Finally, disposing of the PIL, the bench observed- “The portions of the press note extracted (supra) are sufficient safeguards that have been introduced considering the interest of the consumers and therefore, does not require any further intervention of the writ Court. We make it clear that it would be open to each individual consumer aggrieved by alleged inflated electricity bills raised by the distribution licensees, to avail of the remedy made available by the regulations issued by the Commission and upon receipt of such grievance, the Grievance Redressal Officer shall waste no time to decide the same.”Click here to download the OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Vinod Chandran and MR Anitha observed.The deceased, who was working as a Sweeper, was allegedly murdered inside the Congress block committee office at Nilambur in Malappuram on February 5 in 2014. One of the accused was the Personal Assistant of a Minister and the Secretary of the Office of the Local Committee of the then ruling party. The Sessions Court convicted both the accused under Sections 302, 376(1), 201, 404 and 342.According to the prosecution case, the murder was carried out inside the computer room of the Party Office, after which the body was huddled into a jute sack and carried to the goods vehicle of one of the accused and removed from the scene. The goods vehicle was parked inside a residential compound near the roadside at Unnikkulam, till evening and thereafter the body was disposed of in the night, in a pond after tying it with two stones for the purpose of submerging it.”We have discussed the evidence threadbare and we have pointed out the inconsistencies starting from the medical evidence adduced. The post-mortem report was unnecessarily delayed and was signed only after the crime scene visit carried out by the team of Doctors, which was unnecessary since the medical opinion as to cause of death does not depend upon examination of the crime scene. Right from the beginning of the investigation there is a deliberate scripting of events, clear from the evidence led by the prosecution. We have pointed out the glaring improbabilities in the prosecution case which coupled with the omissions and contradictions and the artificial manner in which the recoveries were made, with perfunctory identification carried out by the witnesses in Court, raise very serious doubts as to the case set up by the prosecution. The contradictions/omissions/embellishments as pointed out by us is of such a magnitude that it materially affects the case of the prosecution and are not of a trivial nature”, the bench observed after reappreciating the evidence on record. The court added that the ingenuity of the investigator is in unearthing the evidence that eludes the common man and not in scripting a story and collecting evidence to match the script.”We are unable to accept that in this case there is an unbroken chain of circumstances which unerringly results in the conclusion of the guilt of the accused and excludes every hypothesis of their innocence. The lingering doubts that pervades every aspect of the evidence led, persuades us to give the accused the benefit of doubt and acquit them of the charges levelled against them.”, the court said while acquitting the accused.CASE: SHAMSUDHEEN @ BAPPUTTY vs. STATE OF KERALAClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead Judgment Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Top StoriesAndhra Pradesh High Court Quashes Local Body Elections As SEC Did Not Give 4 Weeks Model Code of Conduct Akshita Saxena22 May 2021 5:04 AMShare This – xThe Andhra Pradesh High Court has set aside the elections held to Mandal Parishad Territorial Constituencies (MPTC) and Zilla Parishad Territorial Constituencies(ZPTC) on April 8 on the ground that there was no mandatory gap of four weeks of Model Code of Conduct between the election notifications and the date of elections.The High Court dubbed the decision of the State Election Commission to resume local body polls in Andhra Pradesh without imposing Model Code of Conduct for four weeks prior to the notified date of polling as “hasty”.The Court has ordered the SEC to issue notification afresh resuming the election process for MPTCs and ZPTCs from where it was stopped, giving 4 weeks time gap for MCC. A Single Bench of Justice M. Satyanarayana Murthy has held that the SEC’s notification dated April 1, 2021 to resume elections to the Mandal and Zila Parishads, that were postponed last year in view of raging Covid-19 pandemic, is illegal on two counts: 1. It is contrary to the direction issued in this regard by the Supreme Court last year, directing the SEC to impose the MCC four weeks before the notified date of polling. 2. It would scuttle the level play field of political parties and their candidates in the proposed election as no opportunity of campaigning the candidates of political parties was afforded virtually. The Court slammed the State Election Commissioner for purposely misinterpreting the Supreme Court’s judgment to construe the four weeks period as an outer limit. “The order passed by the Supreme Court is clear and categorical. On reading the said order, even a common man who can read, write and understand the English language can easily find out the direction issued by the Supreme Court in the order. But, here the State Election Commissioner, who worked as Chief Secretary to the State being a senior most retired IAS Officer, could not understand the simple direction issued by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in right perspective, which creates doubt as to her suitability and fitness to the post of Election Commissioner,” the Bench sternly remarked. The High Court noted that the State Election Commissioner issued the impugned notification on the day when she took charge of the office, even without looking into the purport of the order issued by the Supreme Court. “Such act of respondent No.1 can be described as democratic backsliding, it is also known as autocratization and de-democratization. It is a gradual decline in the quality of democracy and the opposite of democratization, which may result in the State losing its democratic qualities, becoming an autocracy or authoritarian regime,” the Court observed. It added that the Democratic decline is caused by the “state-led weakening of political institutions” that sustain the democratic system, such as the peaceful transition of power or electoral systems. Democratic Backsliding The High Court dubbed the SEC’s conduct as ‘executive aggrandizement’— a form of democratic backsliding (decline) where institutional changes are made through legal channels, making it seem as if the elected official has a democratic mandate. Some examples of executive aggrandizement are the decline of media freedom and the weakening of the rule of law (i.e., judicial and bureaucratic restraints on the government), such as when judicial autonomy is threatened, the Bench said. Another reason for democratic backsliding, the Bench observed, is strategic harassment and manipulation during elections. “This form of democratic backsliding entails the impairment of free and fair elections through tactics such as blocking media access, disqualifying opposition leaders, or harassing opponents. This form of backsliding is done in such a way that the elections do not appear to be rigged and rarely involves any apparent violations of the law, making it difficult for the Election observer to observe these misconducts,” it observed. Background In March 2020, the Supreme Court had upheld SEC’s decision withholding/suspending the election process of MPTCs / ZPTCs and Urban local bodies due to threat of pandemic. It held, “We do not see any reason why this Court should interfere with the decision of the Respondent – Election Commission to postpone the elections particularly since the postponement is due to the possible outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic in the country. We therefore decline to interfere with the said decision of the Election Commission”. SC Declines To Interfere With EC’s Decision To Postpone Andhra Local Body Polls Because Of Corona Outbreak The Top Court further ordered, “We direct that since the Election Commission has already taken the decision to postpone the Elections, there shall be a post decisional consultation with the State of Andhra Pradesh before the next date is notified by the Election Commission. The Model Code of Conduct for the elections shall be reimposed four weeks before the date of polling.” The High Court has held that the impugned notification was issued in “deliberate and intentional violation” of the Supreme Court’s direction and is liable to be quashed. It has therefore directed the SEC to issue a fresh notification to resume the election process while re-imposing the MCC in strict adherence to the Supreme Court’s directions.Case Title: Janasena Party v.
