Clear future under new agent regulations AFTA

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: K.W A draft transition plan presented by the Consumer Affairs Ministers to regulate travel agents across Australia will be agreed upon by the end of this year.The draft transition plan comes over after a three and a half year review process by Consumer Affairs Ministers in the travel and trade related market. AFTA CEO Jayson Westbury said it was a historic day, reaching an agreement to implement new arrangements for the way Australian travel agencies are regulated, with Australian consumers also benefiting from a clearer consumer protection regime.“Consumers will now have a clear understanding of their protection when dealing with travel agents with the new Australian Consumer Law (ACL) and that when dealing with a travel agent they should make sure it is an Australian company,” Mr Westbury said.Despite needing some fine tuning, Mr Westbury said the draft transition plan is good news for Australian travel agents who will have been waiting for a clearer future.The ministers noted the current arrangements are not satisfactory as only about a third of affected consumers have any redress under the scheme, with more money spent on the scheme administration than being paid out to consumers.There have been concerns with the Travel Compensation Fund (TCF) coverage and relevance in the market for consumer protection as the minister’s note that that in the absence of an agreed transition plan, they would withdraw from the TCF, making it no may no longer viable. Australian travel agents have for a while experienced an imbalance and an unfair burden competing in a global and borderless market place with non-Australian internet travel sellers selling to Australians without the same significant level of regulation. To finally have an outcome after over three years of waiting for review considerations and deliberations by the government bureaucrats and ministers is refreshing for those in the travel industry.“This provides a pathway of certainty to the 2800 travel agent businesses in Australia and confirms a future for the 35,000 Australians directly employed by travel agents around the country,” the CEO announced.AFTA looks forward to the final arrangements to be decided at the end of this year and implemented to ensure the development of all stakeholders involved.last_img read more

Stop taxing tourism Coalition

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T The Coalition has warned that “the government must stop over taxing tourism” as the nation faces an $8 billion two-way tourism trade deficit this year.Following reports that Ireland was the fastest growing international destination for Australian travellers last year, Shadow Minister Bob Baldwin revealed Australia’s domestic tourism has taken a beating.“Growing interest in Ireland as a destination is one thing, but what’s worrying is the importance Ireland now places on Australian travellers, as one of the most important growth markets for Irish tourism,” Mr Baldwin said.“Since Julia Gillard welshed on her carbon tax promise and burdened Australian tourism with a raft of new taxes and charges, our domestic industry has suffered enormously.”Mr Baldwin said that last year the Labor Government introduced or increased 12 tourism taxes and charges on local businesses, raising the cost of Australia as a destination.“Our two way tourism trade deficit will be $8 billion this year,” Mr Baldwin said.“This means after subtracting receipts from 6 million inbound tourists Australia will lose at least $8 billion from Aussies spending their holiday savings on goods and services in foreign hotels and shops.”Yet the news was not all bad as 35,000 Australians are currently employed as travel agents and outbound tourism has brought down the cost of inbound flights for foreign visitors. Aussie tourism suffers as tourism trade deficit rises. Image: Andrew Meareslast_img read more

An Industry on Bated Breath for PHH v CFPB

first_img in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News, Print Features May 20, 2016 620 Views An Industry on Bated Breath for PHH v. CFPB PHH Corporation’s appeal of the CFPB’s ruling may not only clarify the CFPB’s reach in interpreting statutes and doling out enforcement actions, but it also challenges the very structure of the bureau and its directorBy Jeffrey Puthoff, Esq.The real estate industry waits on bated breath for the final decision in the ongoing case PHH Corporation v. CFPB. Anyone under the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB’s) enforcement umbrella—from lenders to title agents, servicers to property preservation specialists—could be seriously affected by this upcoming decision from the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The decision will have ramifications on the CFPB’s ability to interpret statutes and bring enforcement actions. The case may even decide whether the current structure of the CFPB is constitutional.CFPB Launches AllegationsThe PHH Corporation is an American financial services corporation that provides mortgage services to some of the world’s largest financial services firms. PHH wholly owns Atrium Insurance Corporation and Atrium Reinsurance Corporation, which enter into mortgage reinsurance contracts with mortgage insurers contracted by PHH. The CFPB considered this relationship a violation of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA).The CFPB first filed a Notice of Charges against PHH on January 19, 2014, alleging violations of RESPA “relating to their use of captive mortgage reinsurance arrangements.” PHH immediately fought back and contested the charges. Rather than bring a suit in federal district court—as it typically had done up to that point in other contested enforcement actions—the CFPB chose to bring an administrative claim before an administrative law judge. Specifically, the case was brought before Judge Cameron Elliot of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The administrative law judge assigned to adjudicate the CFPB’s case is to be selected directly by the CFPB.An administrative trial was conducted. Afterward, the administrative law judge issued a decision on November 25, 2014, holding that the relationship between PHH and Atrium was in fact an illegal kickback scheme under RESPA Section 8(a). The judge ordered limited injunctive relief as well as a $6.4 million disgorgement penalty against PHH.Two things are particularly of note in this ruling, both concerning the nature of the new regime. First, the judge relied on HUD’s (not the CFPB’s) regulations and interpretive guidance to conclude that some captive reinsurance is permissible under RESPA. Second, although the judge sided with the CFPB, he nonetheless limited the CFPB’s enforcement ability under RESPA’s three-year statute of limitations, essentially cutting off liability prior to June 8, 2008.CFPB Director Reviews His Own Bureau’s DecisionBoth PHH and the CFPB appealed the judge’s ruling. Under current federal law, that appeal goes straight to the director of the CFPB. What’s more, even absent an appeal by the parties, the director has the final say in any contested administrative proceedings. The director may intervene in a case without any prompting or request.CFPB Director Richard Cordray issued his final decision on June 4, 2015, siding almost universally with the CFPB. However, Cordray increased the $6.4 million penalty to a staggering $109 million. In his decision, Cordray departed from Elliot’s ruling, asserting that the CFPB is not bound by historical interpretations of RESPA nor is it bound by RESPA’s statute of limitations in administrative proceedings. Cordray also contended that the Dodd Frank Act (the Congressional law that created the CFPB) allows disgorgement to reach gross revenues not delimited by costs or losses.PHH was left with two options: First, ask the CFPB director to reconsider the CFPB director’s own decision upholding a CFPB-selected judge’s ruling in favor of the CFPB. Or, second, seek independent judicial review in the United States Circuit Courts. PHH chose the latter.PHH Calls CFPB’s Decision “Arbitrary and Capricious”On June 19, 2015, PHH filed a petition for review in the United States Court of Appeal for the District of Columbia Circuit, claiming Cordray’s decision was “arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion.” PHH asserted several grounds for relief, including the CFPB’s improper interpretation of RESPA Section 8, the failure to comply with RESPA’s statute of limitations, as well as the excessive disgorgement of $109 million. PHH even challenged the constitutionality of the CFPB.Oral arguments began on April 12, 2016, before the Court’s panel of three judges. It appears the Court will give no deference to Cordray’s decision. Generally, appellate courts afford substantial deference to statutory and regulatory interpretations of lower courts and agencies. However, appellate courts will outright reject prior findings if it finds they are “arbitrary and capricious.” PHH has argued exactly that.Regardless, the Court may depart from Cordray’s conclusions under another legal doctrine: the Rule of Lenity. Essentially, lenity prescribes that ambiguities in criminal statutes must be interpreted in favor of defendants. RESPA itself contains both civil and criminal penalties and, as such, is subject to lenity. If the Court were to find ambiguity with RESPA (as enforced by the CFPB), then it may resolve the issue in favor of PHH.Cordray Rejects Safe HarborRESPA regulation has always been a bit uncertain, especially regarding mortgage insurance and reinsurance. After all, there’s a reason HUD had to provide regular guidance to the industry. However, Cordray’s interpretation of two RESPA provisions marks a radical departure from years of industry regulation and custom.Simply put, RESPA Section 8(a) prohibits kickbacks. The statute reads: “[n]o person shall give and no person shall accept any fee, kickback, or thing of value pursuant to any agreement or understanding, oral or otherwise, that business incident to or a part of a real estate settlement service involving a federally related mortgage loan shall be referred to any person.”However, certain payments and relationships have been legal under the safe-harbor provisions of RESPA Section 8(c)(2). Section 8(c)(2) serves as an exception to Section 8(a) liability and reads: “[n]othing in this section shall be construed as prohibiting the payment to any person of a bona fide salary or compensation or other payment for goods or facilities actually furnished or for services actually performed.”The industry—as well as HUD, various federal courts, and even Elliot—interprets Section 8(c)(2) as permitting payments so long as they are at market prices for actual services performed. For captive reinsurance relationships, the reinsurance must involve a real transfer of risk where the price does not exceed the value. In fact, these arrangements were perfectly legal as outlined by a 1997 HUD Guidance Letter on captive reinsurance.Cordray disagrees. Instead, Cordray views Section 8(c)(2) as merely “to clarify the application of Section 8(a), not as a substantive exemption to liability.” Under Cordray’s interpretation, any discernible connection between referrals and payments risks RESPA violation and punishment by the CFPB. Regarding the 1997 HUD Guidance Letter, Cordray simply noted “to the extent that the letter is inconsistent with my textual and structural interpretation of section 8(c)(2), I reject it.”Cordray Abandons Statute of LimitationsCordray’s decision has completely reworked the timeline for RESPA enforcement moving forward, significantly expanding the liability of all future defendants.Under RESPA, enforcement actions were subject to a three-year statute of limitations. Dodd-Frank also outlined a three-year statute of limitations for “actions brought by the Bureau”. However, Elliot interpreted that this limitation only applied to civil actions, not administrative proceedings (such as the PHH case). Cordray agreed.Traditionally, HUD could only bring enforcement actions in court; it has no administrative option. In contrast, Dodd-Frank allows the CFPB to bring both legal and administrative actions. Thus, if the CFPB chooses to proceed administratively, there is no statute of limitations. The bureau is free to enforce any violations from the point of its creation in 2011. Liability will continue to grow indefinitely. The industry could be on the hook for behavior decades in the past.Cordray Single-handedly Recalculates PenaltiesOne of the most alarming aspects of the entire case is the penalty itself; specifically, the increase in the disgorgement from $6 million to $109 million. Disgorgement is a remedy available by courts to force wrong-doers to repay funds, with interest, received through illegal or unethical business transactions. Both Elliot and Cordray insist disgorgement is a remedy afforded to the CFPB.Cordray increased the disgorgement awarded by Elliot over 18 times its original amount. There are two reasons behind the disgorgement increase. First, Cordray believes PHH violated RESPA every time it collected a reinsurance premium, not simply each time business was referred under the scheme. PHH was ordered to disgorge all the reinsurance premiums it received since July 21, 2008.Second, Cordray did not limit the damages to the amount of profits earned by Atrium; rather, he calculated the penalty based on the gross amount of premiums ceded to Atrium altogether. Of course, this number failed to account for any amounts paid out by Atrium on mortgage insurance claims. Cordray noted that the concept of disgorgement is centered on ill-gotten gains, not ill-gotten profits.Amid a Blatant Conflict of Interest, the CFPB Faces an Uncertain Future More so now than at any other time in its brief history, the CFPB’s future is uncertain. The judges of the D.C. Circuit Court repeatedly questioned the structure and powers of the CFPB. Of particular interest to the judges was the concentration of power in a single director, which neither the President nor Congress has any authority over. One judge especially noted concern over Cordray’s ability to unilaterally overturn years of industry practice and custom.Cordray’s authority is problematic. In reviewing the PHH case, Cordray gave no deference to Elliot’s findings, instead conducting a De Novo Review. Cordray freely departed from Elliot’s decision—rendering it an almost unnecessary step altogether—leaving the parties with little protection upon appeal as the director may pick and choose which issues to examine.  However, unlike PHH, at the least the CFPB prosecution team can appeal to its own boss.And therein lies the blatant conflict of interest. Cordray is the director of the CFPB: an agency whose mission is to regulate the various consumer financial industries and to prosecute offenders where appropriate. However, Cordray is also tasked to be a third-party neutral appellate authority to review contested CFPB enforcement cases. This “in-house” appellate structure is similar to that seen in the SEC, a structure that is coincidentally being challenged nationwide for constitutional violations.Certainly this conflict is merely theoretical, yes? Well, consider that Cordray’s first appellate decision was rendered almost universally in favor of the CFPB while also disregarding years of regulatory guidance from the federal government and the court system alike. It should come as no surprise that the D.C. Circuit Court finds Cordray’s power “very problematic.” If PHH’s constitutional challenge succeeds, it will cast doubt on the future of the agency as well as any previous enforcement actions. A decision from the Court is expected shortly.Editor’s note: This select print feature appears in the May 2016 edition of MReport magazine.center_img Share CFPB Consumer Financial Protection Bureau PHH Richard Cordray 2016-05-20 Staff Writerlast_img read more

Niladri Kumar Related News There is a sense of exhilaration that comes across at sitar player Niladri Kumar’s concerts At a recent one held in Delhi it was hard to miss those hypnotic inflections the ones that in the beginning could be spotted during soft transitions of the opening piece and later in the intensity of the rapid flurries where he treated the sitar like an electric guitar The roar of percussion instruments — the tabla and a mridangam — joined in and soon Niladri took you from happiness to pathos and then back to being happy — all of it through those amplified meends and various combination of notes After a standing ovation by those present including from actor Madhuri Dixit Niladri said “This was only sound check We will now begin the real concert” The friendly banter strikes a chord with people and Niladri goes on to another piece While on most days Niladri makes his regular sitar sound like an electric guitar on other days he plays a zitar which is actually an electric version of his acoustic sitar Zitar is a modified version of the sitar with fewer frets “The instrument has given me more choices than I had in the past Now the sound of my instrument does not drown out if I perform with other louder instruments” says Niladri who was once told by Ustad Zakir Hussain to patent the zitar But it wasn’t just the idea of big sound and being heard that led to the zitar There was a constant urge to play around with his oral legacy which led to a lot of flak from the purists right after he added a microphone to his sitar “People said that I didn’t have enough strength in my arms and that’s why I needed a pick up Some even thought I was not living up to my father’s name” says 40-year-old Niladri But all the comments didn’t trouble him as he was also giving pure classical concerts on the side besides collaborating with guitar legend John McLaughlin For someone who grew up in an environment where listening to any other music except for Indian classical was considered taboo Niladri had a hard time negotiating between the two worlds he begun to straddle Despite the fact that his father was a fixture in Laxmikant-Pyarelal compositions Niladri was never allowed to listen to anything from the world of cinema Even as a child Niladri craved for that trip to a friend’s house or an uncle’s studio where he could listen to sounds other than classical “When I was really young it was a regime Slowly I began loving this music But the exposure I would have outside of my house from Michael Jackson to The Beatles also left an indelible impact” says Niladri Soon he began playing for Bollywood His resplendent preludes and interludes in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Dedh Ishqiya Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan and Pritam’s Bunty Aur Babli have found much appreciation “But with my oral legacy in tow I didn’t know how to read and write music which is what I learnt there I also learnt how to tune my sitar according to all the other instruments” says

By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: May 8,since 1958.Here are the five key moments in a game of twists and turns: Germany decimated by injuries suspension Germany’s Jerome Boateng reacts after he was taken off injured against France in the 61st minute AP Germany’s task was made more difficult ahead of kick-off with three notable absentees from Joachim Loew’s squad Defender Mats Hummels was ruled out through suspension after picking up his second booking of the tournament against Italy in the quarter-finals with midfielder Sami Khedira (groin) and Mario Gomez (thigh) both sidelined by injury Germany suffered another setback when centre-back Jerome Boateng was helped off the field on the hour with an apparent thigh injury and replaced by Shkodran Mustafi France bend but don’t break France coach Didier Deschamps would be looking forward to give France their first major trophy after Euro 2000 where he was a important figure of the team AP France made a promising start at the Stade Velodrome with Manuel Neuer making a fine save to deny Antoine Griezmann but Germany quickly established their dominance Thomas Mueller who is now without a goal in 11 European Championship matches stabbed a low cross wide and France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris then flung himself to his right to claw away an Emre Can effort before tipping over from Bastian Schweinsteiger The Germans controlled possession and had France pegged back but crucially for Didier Deschamps’ side they were able to keep the world champions at bay Griezmann spot on after Schweinsteiger handles Germany’s Bastian Schweinsteiger’s handball gifted France a penalty which Antoine Griezmann put away giving them the lead AP Griezmann fired France into the lead in the second minute of first-half stoppage time after Germany captain Schweinsteiger was penalised for a handball inside the box Griezmann’s driven corner picked out Patrice Evra whose header was blocked by the outstretched arm of Schweinsteiger Referee Nicola Rizzoli took his time before pointing to the spot as the Germans contested the decision Griezmann kept his cool to send Neuer the wrong way and move a step closer towards the Golden Boot Griezmann pounces on Pogba magic Neuer error Griezmann struck his second goal of the evening on 72 minutes after Germany carelessly surrendered possession inside their own area Paul Pogba latched onto the loose ball dancing round a defender before flighting over a cross that Neuer could only tip straight into the path of Griezmann The Atletico Madrid striker poked the rebound through the legs of the Bayern Munich keeper for his tournament-leading sixth goal—leaving him three clear of Cristiano Ronaldo and the chasing pack Kimmich comes closest for Germany Hugo Lloris’ exceptional save preserved France from two-goal cushion AP Right-back Joshua Kimmich nearly pulled a goal back for Germany on two separate occasions First on 74 minutes the Bayern Munich youngster shifted the ball onto his left foot on the edge of the area only to see his curling effort smack against the right-hand post with Lloris well beaten The France captain then pulled off a brilliant reflex save in stoppage time at the end of the second half to keep out a Kimmich header Rio de Janeiro:Atanu Das showed fine composure and skill to bounce back from a poor start in his maiden Olympics to finish fifth in the qualification round as archery got underway at Brazil’s historic Samba street in Rio de Janeiro on Friday Atanu Das during the men’s individual archery ranking round Getty Lying a lowly 10th after first 36 arrows the 24-year-old Kolkata lad turned it around in style in the final set of 36 arrows by shooting 23 perfect 10s including 10 closest to the centre to finish fifth with 683 out of the possible 720 Das is the lone male member in the Indian archery team and competed only in the individual section as the men’s team had failed to qualify from the World Championship Leading the qualification round was two-time World champion Kim Woo-jin who shot 700 for a world record on the opening day of the XXXI Olympiad Das had troubled Woo-jin in the World Cup Stage 3 in Antalya earlier in June where he led the Korean heavyweight 4-0 before losing 5-6 for the individual bronze medal But his impressive finish meant that Das who will begin his elimination round against lowly 60th ranked Jitbahadur Muktan of Nepal will avoid the top-seed Woo-jin unless he reaches the summit-clash Das will get an easy draw till the quarterfinals and his probable semi-final opponent may be the 4th ranked Dutch man Sjef van den Berg who won the World Cup individual gold in Shanghai Das’s promising finish also meant that he was ahead of London 2012 silver medalist Takaharu Furukuwa the Japanese finished 7th and is in the bottom half of the draw On a sunny day without breeze creating a problem Das taking mark for his first ever Olympics shot a promising 58 that included four perfect 10s including two closest to the centre (X) to match the Korean heavyweight who also had begun with 58 with an identical four perfect 10s But the inexperienced Indian struggled to get another perfect 10 in the second set of six arrows that yielded just 53 points with five 9s and one eight to slip from the fine start Das gradually improved and finished in style nine perfect 10s out of the last 12 arrows Written by Dimpal Bajwa | New Delhi | Updated: January 28 2016 3:24 pm When asked if he would do another sequel of the much acclaimed film ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ he quickly replied “I will

“smokeless village” a couple of weeks ago a tiny hamlet called Govindpura has become the first “smokeless village” of Gujarat a state where over 63 lakh homes still use age-old sources of fuel like crop residue firewood and cow-dung cakes as fuel used for cooking On Tuesday the panchayat development officer of Govindpura village Waghji Desai gave a letter certifying the conversion of all households to LPG to the officials of Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOC) which is the only supplier of LPG cylinders to this village Nestled between tomato farms in Kadi taluka of Mehsana district the hamlet in north Gujarat consisting of 143 households got the “smokeless” tag after all the residents shifted to LPG from traditional sources of fuel like firewood and kerosene that they used in their kitchens “Apart from conserving the firewood that we used to light our ‘chulhas’ everyday we will also be saving over 300 litres of kerosene that was consumed every month in this village” said Mansukh Patel the village sarpanch as he stood outside the panchayat office handing over ration cards – with fresh seal of “LPG connection” stamped over them — to womenfolk “This stamp ensures that they will no longer receive kerosene through their ration cards This includes the 68 households who do not own land and work as farm labourers” Patel added The village has a population of over 600 and a literacy rate of 91 percent – higher than the state average “This is the first village in entire Gujarat to turn smokeless We had a hard time convincing the villagers to give up firewood which is freely available but has a negative effect on the health of the womenfolk After this success we will be working on five more villages in the initial phase” said Utkarsha Telang assistant manager IOC A ‘chakada’ (a motorcycle-powered vehicle) carrying LPG cylinders was seen making rounds of the village dropping off cylinders in front of the households who were recently allotted new connections Twenty-two-year-old Karishma Sipai whose six member family is among those who received new connections in the last couple of days said “I used to spend two hours every day in collecting the firewood that we will need in the kitchen But now we will perhaps use firewood only to warm water during winters” Karishma’s family who work as farm labourers used to consume eight litres of kerosene every month as cooking fuel Dhrumin Doshi partner of Dhrumin Gas Service that supplies LPG cylinders to the village from his outlet located about 20 kilometers away in Sanand said “Since November 2015 when this initiative to create smokeless villages began we have given gas connections to about 32 families in the village This includes three BPL families and 21 Muslim households” For all the latest
