However, the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan refused to issue any direction to the concerned authority citing that the present issue involves a policy decision wherein the court can’t interfere. The court also asked the concerned authority to consider the suggestions given by the Petitioner in his representation as and when they wish to amend the said policy. Moved by Mr DC Tuteja, the petition seeks a direction to be issued to the Respondents to formulate policy and bring in line the e-registration of the documents , which shall avoid the unnecessary rush at the Sub-Regsitrar’s office, the ease of registration of the documentation, the effective manner of registrations and also avoid any red-tapeism or any manner of corruption which may have been existing at the Sub-registrar office. It is the case of the Petitioner that the COVID19, and the resultant lockdown, has seriously affected the process of registration of documents concerning property, transfer of interests, lease, deeds, etc. which has seriously affected the rights of duties of the citizens. For instance, the Petitioner submits, the system of electronically calculating the stamp duty before submitting the document to the Sub-Registrar can be made public so that people could be saved from last minute hassles, corruption would be checked, and the instances of wrong calculation of stamp duty would minimise. The petition states: ‘The Physical presence of the parties can always be done virtually by making the Sub-Registrar equipped with the virtual portals which would allow the parties to be virtually present before the Sub-Registrar and save the time, money, energy and also the spread of COVID. The said Practise would also reduce the footfall at the Sub-Registrar’s office which can become the breeding ground for spread of COVID-19 or any other such disease in future.’ The submission of secret documents, the Petitioner argues, can still be continued to be done through physical presence. The Petitioner has further submitted that the Sub-Registrar office also can become a single window transaction issue where the documents can be collected and deposited. ‘Documents which are uploaded on the System would itself be proof enough of the execution of the same by the parties and verification of the person executed can be done at the time the parties present themselves virtually before the Sub-Registrar’, the Petitioner mentions. The Petitioner in this case was represented by Mr Gaurav Bahl Next Storylast_img read more

Asparagus month

first_imgBy Morgan RoanUniversity of GeorgiaMany vegetables sprout in May. One of these healthful treats is asparagus. And wouldn’t you know it? May is national asparagus month.”Georgia doesn’t grow much asparagus, probably because it’s too hot in the summer,” said George Boyhan, a horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “This crop is more prevalent in the Mid-Atlantic and upper Midwestern states.”Actually, asparagus is available year-round, but it’s freshest during the spring. Crops are harvested from late February to June, with April, ironically, the prime month.The stalks shoot up from the crown of the plant and grow into fern-like leaves when the shoots are allowed to develop. However, the edible stalks are harvested by hand before the actual fern leaves start growing.From the time the seeds are sown, it’s at least two years before the first asparagus stalks are harvested. “It is not until the third or fourth year that the plant will be at full production,” Boyhan said.”Large amounts cut during one year can affect the following year’s production rates, too,” he said, “making it harder for the plants to regenerate.”Asparagus crowns should be planted two to four weeks before the last spring frost. The plants grow through the summer and early fall, usually reaching about 3 feet tall, he said.Asparagus is propagated by seeds or crowns. The plants are either male or female. The male produces more stalks, but the female’s stalks are larger.Under ideal conditions, an asparagus spear can grow seven inches in 24 hours. “Each crown will send up spears for six to seven weeks during the spring and early summer,” Boyhan said.Since the plants have about a 15-year life cycle, asparagus is one of the few vegetables grown as a perennial.There are several types of asparagus.Green. Most American asparagus is green and can range from pencil thin to very thick. The larger the diameter of the stalk, the better the quality.White. White asparagus is mostly eaten in Europe and can be hard to come by in the United States. It’s white because of the way it’s grown. Dirt is piled around the stalks, depriving it of sunlight. Since sunlight is required to create chlorophyll, the stalks are white. These stalks are a little milder and more delicate.Violet or Purple. This variety is most commonly found in England and Italy. It has a very thick, substantial stalk.Wild. Asparagus grows wild in some areas, particularly in Europe. You’ll most likely have to hunt down your own, as it is rarely available fresh in markets except in Italy and the south of France.Whichever type you eat, asparagus is a low-calorie food with a variety of nutrients, said Connie Crawley, a UGA Extension Service nutrition and health specialist.”One-half cup or six spears of boiled asparagus contains only 22 calories,” she said. “It’s comparable to other vegetables with regard to nutritional value.”Asparagus is high in folic acid and a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C and thiamin. “It contains very low fat and no cholesterol,” Crawley said. “And it’s low in sodium.”(Morgan Roan is a student writer with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more
