Women should have reproductive rights
Nearly 585,000 women in India die every year from causes related to pregnancy. At least 75 million pregnancies every year are unwanted, leading to 45 million abortions. More than 70,000 women die every year as a result of unsafe abortions.

These were some of the figures quoted from different sources by Dr Satwant Kaur, lecturer, DAV College of Education, Amritsar, as she presented her papers in a seminar on �Right to choose reproductive rights and reproductive health� at Malwa College of Education for Women, here today.

Reading out her paper on �Effect of denying reproductive rights�, Dr Satwant said that nearly 2 million girls of the age of five years to 15 years are put on commercial sex market every year. She said that women face violence at every stage of life. At pre-natal stage, female foetus is aborted. As she turns into an infant, she faces differential access to food and medical care. Emotional and physical abuse and infanticide are common, she said.

�Several girl children have to bear genital mutilation, sexual abuse and child prostitution. As she matures, she is subjected to economically-coerced sex, sexual abuse at work place, rape and forced prostitution. Women face violence even at the reproductive stage, as she has to bear marital rape and psychological abuse. Abuse of widows and elderly women is also common,� Dr Satwant said.

Dr A.S. Chawla, District Epidemologist, Ludhiana, while presenting his paper on the topic �Mother and child health care� said that a balanced diet during pregnancy and after delivery of the child played a vital role in well-being of the mother and child. He said that while a pregnant women should gain around 12 kg of weight during pregnancy, nearly 70 per cent of women were under-weight. He said pregnant women need eight-hour sleep during night and two-hour sleep in the afternoon.

He said self-medication should never be practiced during pregnancy or lactation period as it may lead to major sideeffects in the child. He emphasised that proper hygiene was a must at all stages to avoid any infection. While explning the warning signs, Dr Chawla said that in case a pregnant woman suffered from oedema, headache, blur in vision, bleeding in the vagina or any discharge, a gynaecologist should be immediately consulted.

Presenting her paper on �Effect of frequent pregnancies on mother and child�, Dr Kamaljeet Kaur, Medical Officer, Revamping Centre, Dholewal Chowk, said that rapid pregnancies could lead to malnutrition, impaired placental function, oedema, hypertension and diabetes melitus.

She said while a non-pregnant women should consume 1,900 kilo calories per day, pregnant women require more calories. She said that the intake must increase by 180 kilo calories during the first three months of pregnancy, 450 kilo calories during the second trimester and 550 kilo calories during the last trimester of pregnancy and lactation period.

Dr Rama Sofat, running a nursing home in the city, spoke on �Health and hygiene of expectant mothers, Dr Satpal Kaur, lecturer at the host college, presented her papers on �Women�s right to choose family size�, Dr M.S.

Complaint Case No. CC-186-2006

Present:
1. Mr. Y.C. Bali, complainant in person.
2.Sh. R.K. Bhalla on behalf of PIO, DAV College of Education, Hoshiarpur.

ORDER

Mr. R,K. Bhalla has explained that he was unable to implement the orders of this court passed on July 5, 2006 because it was discovered later that the order dated December 21, 1994, a copy of which is required to be given to the complainant, is not available in the college. He therefore could not fulfill his commitment made on July 5, 2006 that a copy would be given within two days. Instead, the Principal of the college addressed letters to the Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner, Jallandhar on 17-7-2006 to provide a copy of the concerned letter, and to the Punjab State Information Commission on 18-7-006, giving intimation of the action taken.

The conduct of the PIO in this case leaves much to be desired. Although the request for the information was first made by Sh. Y.C. Bali on 7-2-2006, it is on 17-7-2006,i.e:- after a lapse of more than five months, that it was discovered that one of the documents is not available and its copy has to be obtained from the Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner, Jallandhar. This, despite the intervention of the Commission and the notices sent by it. Further, despite the clear commitment given by the representative of the PIO on 5-7-2006, it took 12 days for the college to write to the Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner, Jallandhar and intimation was sent to the Commission on 18-7-2006, knowing fully well that the next date of hearing is 19-7-2006 and the letter has no chance of coming to the notice of this Court before the hearing is over. The PIO also did not consider it proper to attend the Court personally or through his representative on 19-7-2006 to explain the position.

However, one last opportunity is given to the PIO to obtain a copy of required document from the Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner, Jallandhar either personally or through his representative, and to give it to the complainant, by Tuesday the 8th Aug 2006 positively and to send a written compliance to this Court immediately thereafter.


If this order is complied with, this court would consider taking a lenient view, otherwise there would remain no option but to penalize the PIO u/s 20 of the RTI Act, 2005.

Adjourned to 31-8-2006 for conformation of compliance and final orders.

ORDER

1. In this case, the Complainant filed an application with the PIO of D.A.V. College of Education, Hoshiarpur on 03.07.2008 for seeking certain information. She sent a reminder to the PIO/APIO on 10.09.2008. On getting no response, she filed complainants with the Commission on 07.10.2008 and 16.03.2009, which were received in the Commission on 24.10.2008 and 02.04.2009 against Diary Numbers 13911 and 4795 respectively. Accordingly, Notice of Hearing was issued to both the parties for today.
2. A perusal of the file reveals that Notice of Hearing was inadvertently sent to PIO of the office of D.A.V. College, Hoshiarpur instead of D. A. V. College of Education, Hoshiarpur, which has been returned by the PIO of D. A. V. College, Hoshiarpur. Accordingly, it is directed that Notice of Hearing be sent to the PIO of D.A.V. College of Education, Hoshiarpur alongwith a copy of this order.

ORDER

1. Initially Notice of Hearing, in this case, was addressed to PIO of the office of D. A. V.College, Hoshiarpur even though the complaint has been made against the PIO of the office of D.A. V. College of Education, Hoshiarpur. On noticing this incongruity, we vide our order dated 11.06.2009 directed that Notice of Hearing, in this case, be issued to the PIO of the office of D. A.V. College of Education, Hoshiarpur and a copy of the order dated 11.06.2009 be also sent alongwith Notice.

2. On the perusal of the file it transpires that no Notice of Hearing has been sent by the office to the PIO of the office of D. A. V. College of Education, Hoshiarpur. It appears that only a copy of the order has been sent. This is insufficient compliance of the order dated 11.06.2009. We therefore, direct that a fresh Notice of Hearing be issued to PIO of the office D. A. V. College of Education, Hoshiarpur for 11th August, 2009. A copy of today’s order alongwith order of 11.06.2009 be also sent alongwith Notice of Hearing.

3. To come up for proceedings on 11.08.2009 at 10.00 A.M. in Court No. 1.

The main writ petition was disposed of vide judgement dated November 26, 1981 passed by a Division Bench. The matter was taken up in appeal before the Apex Court by the State of Punjab and others. Vide an order dated April 1, 2003, Hon'ble Supreme Court of India has set aside the judgement of the High Court and remitted the matter for fresh consideration in accordance with law. The following order has been passed by the Apex Court on April 1, 2003 while remanding the matter back:

“The several questions raised in these matters are covered by the decision of a Constitution Bench of this Court in Writ Petition No.317/1993-T.M.A Pai Foundation and Ors. Etc. Vs. State of Karnataka and
Ors. Etc. and connected batch decided on 31st October, 2002. Since larger questions have been decided by this Court, it becomes necessary for the High Court to reexamine the matters which have been decided and which are in appeal before this Court. The orders of the High Court are, therefore, set aside without expressing any opinion on merits and the matters are remitted to the High Court for fresh consideration in accordance with law.

Status quo shall continue unless the High Court so decides to modify the same by an appropriate application made to it by any of the parties. The parties are at liberty to file fresh pleadings, if any, within the period fixed by the High Court. It is made clear that all statutory enactments, orders, schemes, regulations will have to be brought in confrormity with the decision of the Constitution Bench of this Court in T.M.A Pai Foundation's case decided on 31.10.2002. As and when any problem arises the same can be dealt with by an appropriate Forum in an appropriate proceeding.

The appeals are disposed of accordingly.”

Sh. B.L Gupta, learned counsel appearing for the respondent- University at the outset states that after the judgement of the Apex Court in T.M.A Pai Foundation and Ors. Etc. Vs. State of Karnataka and Ors.

Etc., all the relevant Rules and Regulations have been amended by the University and the controversy which has been raised by the petitioners in the present case no more survives for any further adjudication.

In view of the aforesaid stand taken on behalf of the Punjab University, we dispose of the present writ petition as having rendered infructuous.

If any cause of action survives to any of the parties, it would be at liberty to get the petition revived.

Mr. Anil Sharma, Senior Deputy Advocate General, Punjab, on the asking of the Court accepts notice. Copy of the petition has been handed over.

Learned counsel for the respondents has not been able to dispute that the grant-in-aid

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case; in terms of judgment rendered in BLM Girls College’s case (supra) and decision rendered in C.W.P. No.5393 of 2008, decided on 24.4.2008, in case titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and others’, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 4 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner.

HEMANT GUPTA J.
The petitioner has invoked the extra-ordinary writ jurisdiction of this Court claiming a writ in the nature of mandamus directing respondent Nos. 1 and 2 to grant approval to the appointment of the petitioner and to pay salary as is due to the petitioner.

It is the case of the petitioner that the petitioner was appointed as Lecturer in Educational Psychology in DAV College of Education Hoshiarpur vide letter dated 8.9.1986 for a period of six months. Such appointment was subject to approval by the Panjab University and Director Public Instructions Punjab. It was stipulated in the appointment letter itself that if approval is not granted within 89 days of joining of the duties the petitioner will not be paid any salary. It is pointed out that inspite of the best efforts the approval has not been granted and therefore aggrieved against the non grant of approval the petitioner invoked the writ jurisdiction of this Court.

In the reply filed on behalf of the Director Public Instructions it has been pointed out that State is giving grants-in-aid to the privately managed affiliated colleges in the State under 95% deficit grants-in-aid scheme. It is
further pointed out that the Managing Committee made appointment but no nominee of the said respondent was called for interview as per the terms and conditions of the grants-in-aid. It is further pointed that the Managing
Committee of respondent No.3 got stay from the Court being minority community institution regarding selection and appointment of the teaching staff. Therefore the approval to the appointment of the petitioner was not granted by the said respondent.

From the perusal of the pleadings it is apparent that the payment of salary was subject to approval thereto by respondent Nos. 1 and 2. However no approval has been granted. Therefore the petitioner cannot seek any direction in respect of payment of salary from respondent Nos.1 and 2.

However it shall be open to the petitioner to claim pay if he has worked in the said institution on the post as claimed in by him in the present writ petition in accordance with law.

With the said liberty the present writ petition stands disposed of.
