Are you using credit card or has taken any loan from banks, if yes then get ready to see some additional charges being levied on your credit card EMI or loan EMI w.e.f November 2016. w.e.f November 2016 Govt. Of India has asked the banks to charge extra or additional 15% tax for the interest the bank charges on EMIs. Now, let me explain you this in better way. Suppose you bought a product using your credit card and converted the same purchase into multiple EMIs, earlier before 1 st November 2016, credit card issuing bank used to levy some interest rate on your EMIs and you used to pay the same only along with the actual value of product price divided by the tenure for which you had taken the EMI.

The page was available on the morning of the election on 8 November, according to online caches. But the redirected was added later the same night.

Demonetization of 500 and 1000 currency notes queries, concerns addressed

1. Why is this scheme? The incidence of fake Indian currency notes in higher denomination has increased. For ordinary persons, the fake notes look similar to genuine notes, even though no security feature has been copied. The fake notes are used for anti national and illegal activities. High denomination notes have been misused by terrorists and for hoarding black money. India remains a cash based economy hence the circulation of Fake Indian Currency Notes continues to be a menace. In order to contain the rising incidence of fake notes and black money, the scheme to withdraw has been introduced. 2. What is this scheme? The legal tender character of the notes in denominations of  500 and 1000 stands withdrawn. In consequence thereof withdrawn old high denomination (OHD) notes cannot be used for transacting business and/or store of value for future usage. The OHD notes can be exchanged for value at any of the 19 offices of the Reserve Bank of India or at any of the bank branc

Why 1 Day ban on NDTV India news channel

Irrespective of all who supporting or not supporting #NDTVBan, watched or wouldn't have watched the show for which 1 day ban is imposed on NDTV. They all know the below info in common: 1. It wasn't a live coverage but a reporting. 2. It wasn't only NDTV but many other national channels who broadcast the same report of coverage of the Pathankot. Coming to the point #1: A careful examination of legality of ban on any cable channel shows that the ban is on ' live coverage ' of anti terrorist operations of the security forces, ( vide para 6 of the Programme Code of the Cable TV Network Rules, 1994 ) and not on reporting of anti terrorist operations. There is a clear distinction between the two. NDTV did not show any live coverage of the anti terrorist operations, but only reported about them. Now to the point #2: If there are other news channels who broadcast the same Anti Terrorist Operations of Security forces, why not impose the same ban, why a selectivity?

14-year-old girl Tejaswani Priyadarshani from Rourkela, Odisha, has designed an innovative device that gives a whole new dimension to a bicycle by allowing it to run on air. Tejaswani Priyadarshani from Rourkela, PC:  Telegraph Instead of pedals, the "Air bike" runs by propelling air. With a 10 kg cylinder of compressed air mounted on the bicycle carrier, it can run up to a distance of 60 km. Tejaswani’s innovation comes at a time when the whole world is trying to tackle global climate woes by cutting down the usage of fossil fuels extracted from resources like coal, oil, gas, petrol and diesel; opening greater possibilities of using renewables like solar and wind energy.

She was helped by her father to carry out the experiments. After experimenting with several de
