They all take place at central London venues, including St Martin-in-the-Fields, St Paul’s Covent Garden, Temple Church and the Queen’s Chapel.Ticket salesThere are two Festival Programmes in Autumn and Spring. Charities raise funds by selecting a concert from one of these and selling tickets. Tickets for most concerts are priced at £18.Charities receive 50% of the value of the tickets they and their supporters sell, with the exception that they will receive slightly less for concerts held at St Martin-in-the-Fields.Event opportunities for charitiesThere are other ways in which charities can boost the value of the concert they sell ticket for. For example, reception opportunities are usually available during the concert intervals and charities can purchase tickets at the 50% rate if they wish to entertain major donors or volunteers. Advertisementcenter_img  59 total views,  1 views today Third year of fundraising through ticket salesThis is the third year that the Festival has been running the fundraising scheme. Last year over 65 charities raised funds by selling tickets to concerts in the Festival programme.Geoffrey Court of The Circle Works said:“Last year, we combined a Rachmaninov Vespers concert at St Clement Danes with a local walk led by a City Guide, to make a really memorable event for our supporters. Ticket sales raised over £350, but by the time we added in the retiring collection, donations from friends who couldn’t make the concert and the contribution from the guided walk, the final sum was over £850, a significant amount for a very small charity like ours.“The brilliant Brandenburg team understood our needs perfectly and our supporters had a great time, so we’re delighted to be returning to the Festival for a Brahms Requiem concert in April.”This year 30 charities are taking part in the Spring programme including The AMAR Foundation, Respond, The Food Chain and The Prader Willi Syndrome Association UK.“Ready-made fundraising event”Bob Porter, Artistic Director of the Brandenburg Choral Festival said:“We’re offering charities a ready-made fundraising event in central London. There is no financial commitment to sell tickets and because we do all the event organisation, the charity isn’t burdened with a huge workload. So this makes it a very appealing fundraiser to small charities that don’t have the resources to organise their own high quality concert in a prestigious central London venue.”Charities that are interested can attend one of the Festival’s concert this Spring for free to sample a concert and to meet with Festival staff.

The submissions were made before the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan in a bunch of writ petitions seeking independent enquiry and registration of FIRs for violence that took place inside the Jamia campus on December 15, 2019 in the wake of protests against Citizenship Amendment Act. These writ petitions also seek exemplary compensation for students who are severely injured due to the alleged police brutality. Today, appearing for the Delhi Police, ASG Aman Lekhi argued that the present petitions are not maintainable as they are based on ‘dubious claims’ and ‘unverified facts’. At the outset, Mr Lekhi argued that just because the present matter involves students and that the violence took place inside the University campus, it doesn’t mean that the police action was unwarranted. Mr Lekhi argued that a writ court cannot exercise its extraordinary jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution for the petitions that have been filed without concrete proof and when there is an alternative remedy available in the form of criminal proceedings. He said: ‘Petitioners have put grave allegations against the Delhi Police on the basis of newspaper reports which are hearsay evidence. They have collated information in bits and pieces to suit their political motives.’ Mr Lekhi further argued that the writ court should not entertain petitions filed in the form of Public Interest Litigation when they are based upon selective public opinion, ‘dubious claims’, and unverified proof. ‘No one knows where these videos have come from. They have not been authenticated by any credible source. Petitioners want this court to reach an indictment on the basis of unverified proof. These are serious allegations against the Delhi police which require clear and strong proof’, Mr Lekhi argued. It was further submitted by Mr Lekhi that the criminal proceedings in the present matter has already commenced as the investigation is going on and chargesheets have been filed in multiple cases. ‘When the Petitioners are not aware of the investigation, how can they claim that there should be an independent enquiry’, Mr Lekhi argued. It was also contended by the Delhi Police that the present petitions have been filed not by the persons who are accused in the matter but by those who are not affected parties. Therefore, the court should not exercise its jurisdiction on the basis of unverified facts. The hearing on the submissions of Delhi Police will continue on August 21.Read the reports about petitioners’ submissions :Jamia Violence: ‘Purpose Of Police Attack Was To Threaten Students To Never Participate In Anti-CAA Protests’, Submits Sr Adv Gonslaves In Delhi HCJamia Violence: ‘Police Cannot Become A Judge In Its Own Cause’, Sr Adv Khurhsid Urges Delhi HC To Order Independent ProbeJamia Violence: Police Acted With Sheer Vindictiveness Against Students, Submits Sr Adv Jaising In Delhi HCJamia Violence: Blinded & Injured Students Urge Delhi HC To Direct Payment Of Compensation   Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Its shades change depending on the context, differ from statute to statute. Background circumstances, and the expediency of the situation often influence the application of law. So, one might find different, if not totally conflicting, answers in law to similar questions. Two recent judgments on the issue whether a private car is a public place are examples. While the Delhi High Court held last week that a private car amounts to a public place in order to hold that wearing of face mask is compulsory even when travelling alone, the Supreme Court held in an NDPS case yesterday that a private vehicle is not a public place. Though at first blush, these judgments seem conflicting, a deeper analysis will enable one to reconcile with them, accepting the interesting manners in which law operates. Delhi High Court’s facemask ruling It was in the case Saurabh Sharma and others v Sub Divisional Magistrate (East) and others that the Delhi High Court held that wearing of facemask was compulsory even while driving alone in a personal car. A single bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh held that a private vehicle will amount to a public place in the context of COVID-19 pandemic regulation. Referring to precedents, the Court said that the meaning of the term ‘public place’ changes from context to context. “…the word ‘public place’, has to be interpreted in this case in the context of the COVID pandemic. To determine what constitutes a `public place’ the manner in which the Coronavirus can spread is the crucial part”. The Court said that there was a possibility of the droplets released by a person while driving alone in a car infecting others who may enter the vehicle hours later. “The droplets carrying the virus can infect others even after a few hours after the occupant of the car has released the same. There are several possibilities in which while sitting alone in the car one could be exposed to the outside world. Thus, it cannot be said that merely because the person is travelling alone in a car, the car would not be a public place” , it said. “A vehicle which is moving across the city, even if occupied at a given point in time by one person, would be a public place owing to the immediate risk of exposure to other persons under varying circumstances. Thus, a vehicle even if occupied by only one person would constitute a ‘public place’and wearing of a mask there in,would be compulsory” While there are views doubting the rationale of mandating wearing of facemask during lone travel in a car, it is to be noted that the High Court was essentially refusing to interfere with the regulations issued by the authorities under the Epidemic Diseases Act and Disaster Management Act. In other words, the Court was exercising an extra caution, taking note of the grave pandemic situation. If this practice reduces the risk of corona transmission even by a single percentage, let that happen – this seems to have been the intention which drove the judgment. When private vehicle did not become a ‘public place’ under NDPS Act On April 16, the Supreme Court held that a private vehicle is not a “public place” as per Section 43 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychedelic Substances Act in the case Boota Singh v State of Haryana. Here, recovery was made from the accused while they were in a jeep at a public place. The high court held that the case of the accused would be covered by Section 43 of NDPS Act and not by Section 42. Section 42 deals with Power of entry, search, seizure and arrest without warrant or authorisation while Section 43 with power of seizure and arrest in public place. Before the Apex Court, the accused contended that the vehicle in question was a private vehicle belonging to accused and was not a public conveyance, though parked on a public road and therefore the case would not be come under Section 43 but would be governed by the provisions of Section 42 NDPS Act. Since Section 42 having not been complied with at all, they were entitled to acquittal, they contended. The Explanation to Section 43 stated : For the purposes of this section, the expression “public place” includes any public conveyance, hotel, shop, or other place intended for use by, or accessible to, the public. The Supreme Court held that since the explanation only referred to “public conveyance” and not to private vehicle, the jeep involved in the case was not a “public place” coming under Section 43. Hence, the officers had to follow the procedure under Section 42 NPDS with respect to the recovery. The same having not been followed, the accused were acquitted. “The evidence in the present case clearly shows that the vehicle was not a public conveyance but was a vehicle belonging to accused Gurdeep Singh. The Registration Certificate of the vehicle, which has been placed on record also does not indicate it to be a Public Transport Vehicle. The explanation to Section 43 shows that a private vehicle would not come within the expression “public place” as explained in Section 43 of the NDPS Act”, a bench comprising Justices UU Lalit and KM Joseph held. Here, the conclusion of the Court turned on the specific entry in the statutory provision. Drinking alcohol inside private car amounts to drinking in public place In 2019, the Supreme Court held that consuming liquor in a private vehicle in a public place will attract the offence under the Bihar Excise Act, which prohibits alcohol. In this case Satvinder Singh Saluja v State of Bihar, the appellant were charge-sheeted under Section 53(a) of the Bihar Excise (Amendment) Act 2016 on the ground that they were found drunk inside a private vehicle. For seeking the quashing of the chargesheet, the appellant argued that Section 53(a), which punishes drinking in public place, is not applicable as private car is not a public place. The SC rejected the first argument on the basis of statutory definitions of ‘public place’ under the Bihar Excise (Amendment) Act 2016 and Bihar Prohibition and Exchise Act 2016. As per Section 2(17A) of the Bihar Excise (Amendment) Act “Public Place” means “any place to which public have access, whether as a matter of right or not and includes all places visited by general public and also includes any open space”. According to the Court, the key word in the definition was “access”. Any place to which public have access, whether as a matter of right or not, is a public place. It observed that public can have access to a private vehicle in a road. The Court noted that ‘access’ has been defined in Black’s Law Dictionary as “A right, opportunity, or ability to enter, approach, pass to and from, or communicate with access to the courts.” “When private vehicle is passing through a public road it cannot be accepted that public have no access. It is true that public may not have access to private vehicle as matter of right but definitely public have opportunity to approach the private vehicle while it is on the public road. Hence, we are not able to accept the submission that vehicle in which appellants are travelling is not covered by definition of ‘public place’ as defined in Section 2(17A) of the Bihar Excise (Amendment) Act, 2016”, said the judgment authored by Justice Bhushan. The bench further added : “The omission of public conveyance in the definition of Section 2(17A) brought by the Bihar Excise (Amendment)Act, 2016 also indicates that the difference between public conveyance and private conveyance was done away in the statutory amendment. We, thus, cannot accept the submission of the learned counsel for the appellant that private conveyance will be excluded from the definition of ‘public place’ as contained in Section 2(17A)”. The top court also took into account the fact that the definition of ‘public place’ under Section 2(53) of the Bihar Prohibition and Excise Act 2016 specifically included means of transport, both public and private. The Kerala High Court has also held that drinking inside a private car at a public place will amount to an offence(Rajendran Pilai and others v State of Kerala). This is because after the 2010 amendment to the Kerala Abkari Act, private vehicles parked in any public place were also treated as public places for the purpose of Section 15C of the Act, which prohibits drinking in public places. These examples show that the answers in law can be counter-intuitive to common thinking.

Atlantic City Electric will improve reliability in Ocean City by installing special equipment to reduce the number of customers affected by power outages.Reclosers will be installed for areas serving every 500 customers or fewer, so when an outage occurs outside of a substation area, fewer homes and businesses will be affected. Instead of having a couple of thousand customers without power because of a pole accident, for instance, 500 or fewer customers will be affected until repairs are made.Installation of these reclosers will require service interruptions this winter as crews replace existing poles, transformers and wire. Contractors will notify customers before these outages occur. The work also will require road closings and detours around the blocks where work is taking place.For the week of Feb. 11 to Feb. 15, the tentative schedule (weather permitting) of service interruptions will be as follows:Monday: 27th Street and West Avenue; and Ninth Street and Ocean Avenue Atlantic City Electric crews are pictured working on the lines at 5th Street and Asbury Avenue as part of the service upgrades.last_img read more
