Contempt notice to officials

 This followed a complaint by Mohammed Shafi, a resident of Tiptur, who was a member of KSMC. He had moved the High Court stating that no salary was fixed to the members of commission. On hearing the matter, the Court on April 14, 2008 directed to fix and pay salary within six weeks.

An appeal by the State challenging this order dated January 5, 2009 was disposed off with a direction to comply with the order within 90 days. The department had failed to act.
