The Delhi high court on Wednesday asked the state government to respond on a PIL seeking repainting of zebra crossings and removal of unauthorisedly parked vehicles from roads to prevent traffic disruptions.

A division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath asked the Delhi government to file its reply by 19 January on a plea filed by lawyer Ashish Sharma.

The public interest litigation also raised the issue of urination on roadsides and defacement of walls by posters. It also sought fixing of broken road dividers for the safety of citizens.

The plea sought directions to authorities to immediately paint, repair and mark stop lines, lane dividers, zebra crossings across Delhi to aid pedestrians as well as vehicles plying on the roads.

“The petitioner seeks enforcement and security of his right to live, right to breathe and enjoyment of fundamental rights. The citizens and government agencies are both insensitive towards their duties. Everywhere is mess. Zebra lines are missing and cars are parked on footpath,” said the PIL,

The Delhi high court today issued notice to the central government on BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea against the release of the juvenile convict in the 16 December, 2012 gang-rape and sought an IB report about him having been radicalised.

A division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice RS Endlaw asked the government to give the IB report in a sealed cover and posted the matter for hearing on Monday.

The juvenile, who was under 18 when arrested for brutal rape and murder of a para-medical student on 16 December, 2012, was tried under the Juvenile Justice Act. He was ordered to be kept in a remand home for three years.

The juvenile is set to be released on 15 December. The (Intelligence Bureau) IB had raised suspicion of the juvenile being radicalised after being shifted with a juvenile apprehended for the Delhi high court blasts.

Vodafone has, through senior advocate K Vishwanathan, challenged the telecom authority’s new rules which deprive it of charges paid to it by other operators on outgoing calls from their network to the Vodafone network, reported The Indian Express.

In its challenge to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) Telecommunication Interconnection Usage Charges Regulations 2015, at the Delhi high court, Vodafone has argued that the TRAI has arbitrarily decreased Interconnection Usage Charges (IUC), and that this is illegal and beyond the TRAI’s functions.

Interconnection Usage Charge (IUC) is the amount payable by one telecom service provider whose user makes the call to the other whose user receives it. While smaller and newer telecom operators welcomed the move, bigger operators like Vodafone are unhappy with this because they earn through these charges.

The TRAI had notified the regulations in February this year.

A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw refused to give interim relief to Vodafone without hearing TRAI’s reply. The case will be heard next on 19 January 2016.

Vishwanathan reportedly submitted to the court that even when TRAI agrees that costs are incurred for terminating a call, it has grossly erred and acted in an illegal manner while fixing the termination charges for wireline to wireless as zero and wireless to wireless from Rs 0.20 per minute to Rs 0.14 per minute.
