Shri Justice P. Sathasivam was born into an agricultural family as the son of late Palaniswamy and Smt. Natchiyammal at Kadappanallur Village near Bhavani in Erode district, Tamil Nadu on 27 April 1949. Graduating from the Government Law College, Madras, he enrolled as an advocate and was appointed to the post of Additional Government Pleader. Subsequently, he became the Special Government Pleader in the Madras High Court. He also served as Legal Adviser for several state-owned corporations, municipalities and banks. He was appointed a permanent judge of the Madras High Court on 8th January 1996 and transferred to the Punjab and Haryana High Court in 2007. He was elevated to the post of Judge of the Supreme Court on 21 August 2007. He was sworn-in as the 40th Chief Justice of India on 19 July 2013 and retired on 26 April 2014.
Justice Sathasivam observed that “in a national democracy like ours, the national assets belong to the people” and “the government owns such assets for the purposes of developing them in the interests of the people. He also delivered the verdict in the controversial triple-murder case of Stains and upheld the conviction of Dara Singh. On 19 April 2010, he delivered the judgement in the Jessica Lal murder case of 29 April 1999. Along with Justice B. S. Chauhan, Sathasivam delivered the judgement in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, sentencing Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt to five years imprisonment under the Arms Act. "In a number of judgements, Sathasivam cautioned the courts against awarding lesser sentence in crimes against women and children and showing undue sympathy towards the accused by altering the sentence to the extent of period already undergone.
I would say that reasonable restrictions in the courts can be understood, but a total non-cooperation and antagonism are not in the spirit of the democratic values that we as lawyers, uphold. - Shri Justice P. Sathasivam
The first time a security admin panel has been presented to any Governor in the country. The admin console acts as a brilliant conduit that helps to initiate all proposals and project proposition to ADC.
The front end for the web site gives the public all information regarding the Governor’s next event or visit and also the protocols that needs to be followed during the course of the function.
The proposal may be submitted by anyone in the form of brochures, flyers etc. But the approval can only be given by the admin. He alone has the power to accept the proposal and later arrange the required meetings.
