Two doctors from Government Medical College and Hospital (GMC), Nagpur, were caught red-handed by Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) while accepting a bribe of Rs 3,000 from a man on Monday.  The two GMCH doctors – Dr Vandana Iyer (35) and Dr Swanand Shailesh Pradhan (26) are from the Department of Ophthalmology.

Sandeep Pande (47) had taken his wife to GMCH as she was suffering from an eye ailment. Iyer and Pradhan told Pande that they would need to administer Avastin injection in his wife’s eye and took Rs 3,000 from him for the same. The doctors gave a receipt of Rs 140 to Pande, who was told that the injection costs Rs 24,000 and that’s the reason that they administer the injection in eights parts and charge Rs 3,000 from each patient. The doctors again demanded Rs 3,000 from Pande.

Pande got suspicious and spoke to some doctors he knew, who told him that issuing a receipt of Rs 140 in lieu Rs 3,000 was illegal. Pande then contacted the Anti Corruption Bureau in Nagpur. The ACB laid out a trap and caught the two doctors red-handed as they accepted the cash from Pande. While Pradhan was immediately arrested, Iyer was not arrested as a women cannot be arrested past sunset and before sunrise. A case has been registered against Iyer and Pradhan under relevant sections of Prevention of Corruption Act at Ajni Police Station.

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to twitter to inform netizens that he had lost his brand new unboxed phone in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Kohli, who is in the city for first test match against Australia on Thursday,  said, “Nothing beats the sad feeling of losing your new phone without even unboxing it  Has anyone seen it?”

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’ 

The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Bombay High Court rejected stay plea filed by CBI paving way for the release of ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Ex-Home Ministe Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.



The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”

Interesting facts you didn’t know about Union Budget | Must Read

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented Union Budget when she presented financial statements and tax proposals for fiscal year 2023-24.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented her fifth straight Union Budget when she presented financial statements and tax proposals for fiscal year 2023-24.

Here are some lesser known facts about Union Budget…

The British government presented India’s first ever Union Budget on April 7, 1860.

The first budget of independent India was presented by country’s first Finance Minister RK Shanmukham Chetty on November 26, 1947.

Even though traditionally, the finance ministers present the budget, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi are the only Prime Ministers to have presented the Union Budget instead of Finance Ministers.

Until 1955, the Union Budget was presented in English. However, the Congress government then decided to print the Budget papers in both Hindi and English.

In 2019, Sitharaman became the second woman to table the budget after Indira Gandhi who presented the budget for the year 1970-71.

Earlier, the government tabled the rail budget separately for 92 years but since 2017, the rail budget was merged with the Union Budget.

Until 1999, the government tabled the Union Budget at 5 pm on the last working day of February as per British era practice but 

former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha changed the timing to 11 am. Years after, late Finance Minister Arun Jaitely changed the budget presentation to February 1. 

There’s a customary event called the ‘halwa ceremony’ that is held every year ahead of the Union Budget. It is considered as a gesture of appreciation for all people who have worked on the Union Budget. 

To ensure the secrecy of the budget document, a lock-in process is followed – in which all the officials involved 

in preparing the Budget come out of Parliament’s North Block only after the Finance Minister has presented the budget.

In 2021, Sitharaman became the first to table paperless Union Budget.

Former Prime Minister Moraraji Desai holds the record of presenting 10 budgets as finance minister, which is the maximum so far.
