पहली विश्व टेस्ट क्रिकेट प्रतियोगिता 2017 में: आईसीसी


अंतरराष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट परिषद ने घोषणा की है कि पहली विश्व टेस्ट क्रिकेट प्रतियोगिता इंग्लैंड और वेल्स में साल 2017 में खेली जाएगी. टेस्ट क्रिकेट की ये विश्व प्रतियोगिता चैंपियंस ट्रॉफ़ी की जगह लेगी. आईसीसी ने शनिवार को लंदन में हुए अपने वार्षिक सम्मेलन के बाद ये घोषणा की.

 साल 2015 से 2023 के बीच होने वाली कई अहम प्रतियोगिताओं की मेजबानी के लिए भारत को चुना गया है. साल 2016 में होने वाली विश्व ट्वेंटी-ट्वेंटी प्रतियोगिता के अलावा साल 2021 में होने वाली दूसरी टेस्ट क्रिकेट विश्व प्रतियोगिता और साल 2023 में होने वाली 50-ओवर विश्व कप प्रतियोगिता की मेजबानी भारत करेगा.

आईसीसी के मुख्य कार्यकारी डेविड रिचर्डसन ने एक विज्ञप्ति में कहा, “हम वर्ष 2023 तक होने वाली रोचक प्रतियोगिताओं के कार्यक्रम की घोषणा करते हुए काफ़ी खुशी महसूस कर रहे हैं.”
उन्होंने आगे कहा, “अब जब विश्व टेस्ट क्रिकेट प्रतियोगिता तय हो गया है, हम खेल के खेल की रूपरेखा और क्वालिफिकेशन पर काम करेंगे और आईसीसी बोर्ड के पास स्वीकृति के लिए भेजेंगे.”
आईसीसी ने इंग्लैंड में इसी साल चैंपियंस ट्रॉफी की जगह टेस्ट विश्व प्रतियोगिता आयोजित कराने की योजना बनाई थी, लेकिन व्यापारिक बंधनों के कारण एक दिवसीय क्रिकेट प्रतियोगिता खेली गई. जो कि आखिरी चैंपियंस ट्रॉफ़ी साबित हुई.


आईसीसी ने अफ़ग़ानिस्तान को अपना 37वां सदस्य देश बनाया है, जिसका रैंक पहले दस टेस्ट क्रिकेट खेलने वाले देशों के बाद आता है.

Promotion cannot be withheld because of the mere pendency of investigation, rules CAT

Soruce : The Hindu, 24 June 2013

The Central Administrative Tribunal, Madras Bench, has ruled that promotion cannot be withheld because of the mere pendency of investigation and directed the Defence Ministry to promote an Indian Ordnance Factories Service (IOFS) officer within 45 days.
Disposing of an application filed by M. Ravi, a 1975 batch officer, the Bench, comprising members B. Venkateswara Rao and Naresh Gupta, held that the defence authorities had erred in withholding his promotion without valid reason. The Bench also said, “No charge sheet has been issued to the applicant. The promotion was withheld merely on the ground of pendency of criminal investigation by the CBI.”
Mr. Ravi is presently working as Senior Deputy Director of General, Armoured Vehicles Factory, Avadi.
He contended that he served in various capacities in other factories. The Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) convened in January 2012 and 2013 recommended his name along with S.K. Gupta and B.N. Singh for promotion to Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) for its final approval.
He was not promoted on the ground of a criminal investigation by CBI pending against him. The investigation was a result of an alleged irregularity that took place when he was working at ordnance factory, Medak, between 1999 and 2005.
In an application before CAT, he also sought a direction to the defence authorities to promote him. He also contended that the promotion had been withheld because of ‘long pending’ investigation but there was no disciplinary action of any kind initiated against him. Hence, Mr. Ravi said that the authorities postponed the promotion indefinitely.
The defence authorities contended that six vacancies arose in the level of member to the Ordnance Factory Board.
In fact, the recommendation of DPC should be approved by Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) for effecting promotion. Along with others, the candidature of Mr. Ravi was also considered. In view of the investigation by the CBI with respect to him, the ACC accorded its approval to others and directed the Defence Ministry to resubmit the proposal for promotion of Mr. Ravi after completion of the ongoing investigation.
The Tribunal also pointed out that a draft charge sheet which did not fructify into regular charge sheet and that should not be a ground for withholding promotion. The Tribunal added, “Unless a regular charge sheet is issued, no disciplinary action can be initiated against the officer of the government and no promotion can be withheld by the mere pendency of investigation.”
