SC raps Rlys for not revising licence fee  for vendors
Highlighting the “non-governance” of Railway property since independence, the Supreme Court has said the government has failed to carry out periodical revision of licence fees of big operators exploiting its rich resources.

The court also described as “appalling” the callous attitude and the inaction on the part of the state in tackling the problem of rising unemployment.

Exploitation of policies
“The situation is made worse by the handing over of public functions to private entrepreneurs, which then exploit the policies of the government against the poor and downtrodden people of the country,” it said.

A bench of Justices V Gopala Gowda and Amitava Roy said though the railways property is public property, yet in reality, it is the private players and industries that are allowed to carry on their business for transport of raw materials from one place to another.
