Please don’t take PANADOL always and try to send this e-mail to people you care. ¬† In India it is sold as CROCIN or METACIN.

Please make time to read, very useful.

Parsees (A sect in India) used to take their Dead & lay them to rest @ huge ‘Wind Towers’ (round structures that Look like Giant Water reservoirs, but open to the air)…The Parsees never buried their dead, nor burned them.¬† They leave them to the Birds of Prey (Vultures) to be eaten thus completing the Life Cycle..

Around 10 years ago, it was noticed that the Birds are dying off. Not many of them were left to consume the dead bodies (which started rotting away)…So, the Parsees had to change this mode of dealing with their dead.. BUT, they wanted to know why a Custom that survived for hundreds of years, had to be suspended?!!

They did Autopsies on Dead Birds (they were dying in huge numbers)..What was the Culprit??? PARACETAMOL (PANADOL)…!!¬†¬† People started consuming pain-killers a decade ago, Panadol STAYS in the Liver for a Long Time…It ultimately accumulated in the Birds’ systems & they could not cope with it!

Interesting to know…

PANADOL

My husband was working in a hospital as an IT engineer, as the hospital is planning to set up a database of its patients and he knows some of the doctors quite well. The doctors used to tell him that whenever they have a headache, they are not willing to take PANADOL / PARACETAMOL.

In fact, they will turn Herbal Medicine or find other alternatives. This is because Panadol is toxic to the body, and it harms the liver. According to the doctor: Panadol will remain in the body for at least 5 years…..!!

And according to the doctor, there was an air-hostess who consumed lots of Panadol as she needed to stand all the time and work under lots of pressure. She’s now in her early 30’s, and she is undergoing kidney cleaning (DIALYSIS) every month.

Whenever we have a headache, that’s because it is due to the electron / Ion imbalance in the brain.¬†¬† Some alternative solution to cope with headache is to¬†Drink lots of water.

Another method will be to submerge your feet in a basin of warm water so that it brings the blood pressure down from your throbbing head.

As Panadol is a pain killer, the more Panadol you take, the lesser would be your threshold for pain (your endurance level for pain). We all will fall ill as we age.

Imagine that we had spent our entire life popping quite a substantial amount of Panadol (Pain Killer), when you need to have a surgery or operation, you will need a much more amount of general anaesthesia.

The thought is scary enough to turn me to Herbal Medicine or other healthier alternative. Value your health, value your life, THINK TWICE before you easily pop that familiar pill into your mouth again.

Please don’t take PANADOL always and try to send this e-mail to people you care.

Glance on budgets presented under Mr. Modi government

Glance on budgets presented under Mr. Modi government

*Budget 2014-15*
Budget 2014 made a lot of taxpayers happy. It hiked the basic tax exemption limit from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh in case of individuals. For senior citizens aged 60 and above but below 80 years, the tax exemption limit was hiked to Rs 3 lakh.

Along with that, deduction limit under 80C was also hiked by Rs 50,000 to Rs 1.5 lakh. Another demand of the middle class that was fulfilled was the hike in deduction on the interest paid on housing loans. Deduction under section 24 (interest paid on housing loan) was hiked to Rs 2 lakh from the previous limit of Rs 1.5 lakh.

*Budget 2015-16*
In second budget of Narendra Modi government, there were no major changes announced in personal income tax slabs and rates. However, there were certain changes which helped the salaried class to save more tax. To make National Pension System (NPS) more attractive, additional deduction of Rs 50,000 was introduced under section 80CCD(1b) on the contribution made. This deduction was over and above the deduction of Rs 1.5 lakh available under section 80C, thereby making a tax-saving of Rs 2 lakh per fiscal.

For the salaried class, transport allowance limit was doubled from Rs 800 per month to Rs 1,600 per month. Another major change was the hike in deduction limit for health insurance premiums paid. For individuals, the limit was increased from Rs 15,000 to Rs 25,000. For senior citizens and very senior citizens, the limit was upped from Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000.

Further, Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana was given tax exempt status – equivalent to PPF. Prior to budget announcement, contributions made to scheme was already eligible for deduction under section 80C but income earned and withdrawal was taxable.

On the other hand, there was some bad news for those earning more than Rs 1 crore. In his budget speech, Arun Jaitley hiked the surcharge on taxable income from 10 per cent to 12 per cent. At the same time, wealth tax was abolished.

*Budget 2016-17*
Budget 2016 brought more bad news for the HNIs taxpayers (having income above Rs 1 crore) as surcharge was further increased from 12 per cent to 15 per cent.

For individuals living on rent but not receiving house rent allowance (HRA), budget 2016 brought some relief. Maximum deduction on rent paid under section 80GG was raised from Rs 24,000 to Rs 60,000.

For small and marginal taxpayers having income below Rs 5 lakh, tax rebate was hiked from Rs 2,000 to Rs 5,000.

For the property buyers, an additional deduction of Rs 50,000 was introduced under section 80EE provided all the other conditions are satisfied.

*Budget 2017-18*
In Budget 2017, a rebate of Rs 12,500 was offered. This is because then Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley reduced the tax rate for income between Rs 2.5 lakh and Rs 5 lakh from 10 per cent to 5 per cent.

However, for the upper class, it also brought some bad news as the budget levied a surcharge of 10 per cent on individuals having income between Rs 50 lakh and Rs 1 crore.

*Budget 2018-19*
The fifth budget of the Narendra Modi government was mixed bag. While it introduced a standard deduction of Rs 40,000 on salaried class and pensioners, it took away the tax benefits available on medical reimbursements and transport allowance, thereby providing a net tax benefit of Rs 5,800 only.

Cess was also increased by 1 per cent from 3 per cent to 4 per cent. The budget 2018 also introduced long-term capital gains tax on equity at flat 10 per cent without indexation benefit if gains are exceeding Rs 1 lakh in a financial year.

Expectations are high from the interim Budget that will be presented on February 1 by the acting finance minister, Piyush Goyal.

GoM favours cutting GST to 5 pc on residential properties, 3 pc on affordable housing

GoM favours cutting GST to 5 pc on residential properties, 3 pc on affordable housing

In its first meeting, the GoM also favoured slashing GST on affordable housing from 8 per cent to 3 per cent.

A panel of state ministers Friday favoured lowering GST on under-construction residential properties to 5 per cent, from 12 per cent currently.

The Group of Ministers, under Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, was set up last month to analyse tax rates and issues/challenges being faced by the real estate sector under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime.

In its first meeting, the GoM also favoured slashing GST on affordable housing from 8 per cent to 3 per cent.

Officials said the report of the GoM would be finalised within a week & would be placed before the GST Council in its next meeting.

“The GoM favoured lowering GST rates on residential houses to 5 per cent without input tax credit and to 3 per cent for those under affordable housing,” an official said.

Currently, GST is levied at 12 per cent with Input tax credit (ITC) on payments made for under-construction property or ready-to-move-in flats where completion certificate has not been issued at the time of sale.

The effective pre-GST tax incidence on such housing property was 15-18 per cent.

Big push for affordable housing, zero GST on cards

A panel of state ministers Friday favoured lowering GST on under-construction residential properties to 5 per cent, from 12 per cent currently.

The Group of Ministers, under Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, was set up last month to analyse tax rates and issues/challenges being faced by the real estate sector under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime.

In its first meeting, the GoM also favoured slashing GST on affordable housing from 8 per cent to 3 per cent.

The effective pre-GST tax incidence on such housing property was 15-18 per cent.

GST, however, is not levied on buyers of real estate properties for which completion certificate has been issued at the time of sale.

There have been complaints that builders are not passing on the ITC benefit to consumers by way of reduction in price of the property after the rollout of GST.

The GST Council, headed by Union Finance Minister and comprising his state counterparts, had on January 10 decided to set up a GoM to look into ways to boost housing sector under GST.

The other ministers in the 7-member GoM are finance ministers of Maharashtra Sudhir Mungantiwar , Karnataka Krishna Byre Gowda, Kerala Thomas Isaac, Punjab Manpreet Singh Badal, Uttar Pradesh Rajesh Agarwal and Goa Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho.

Apart from Patel and Gondinho, Friday’s GoM meeting was attended by Mungantiwar and Badal through video conferencing. Also other state ministers, who are part of the panel, too would be giving their views in a couple of days.

From an Army officer who is at the forefront of rescue and relief operations at Kochi:

From an Army officer who is at the forefront of rescue and relief operations at Kochi:

“I have been in the centre of activities at Kochi. While there is no doubt the armed forces have been doing a tremendous job and it has to be acknowledged, I would like to bring out the differences I felt in this mission and the ones carried out at Srinagar, Chennai, Uttaranchal and Mumbai.

Firstly to the credit of the civil administration, they have also been in the front and have been operating along with the public. Unlike other places where they had hid themselves and were unwilling to show themselves to the public, here they were shoulder to shoulder with all affected people

Secondly, youngsters had on their own taken on the task of organising the efforts. IT companies had given their people off, to work on relief and rescue. These ppl had all sorts of software programmes created, to coordinate the efforts. The place where they were coordinating the efforts were teaming with the youngsters who were bringing in supplies and other essentials as needed. From my flat complex, young ladies had overnight collected over Rs 3 lakhs and were supplying packed food.

Thirdly, the fishermen community had on their own transported their boats and were rescuing the stranded. Similarly, others also had formed their own little organisations to rescue the stranded.

The population in general did not wait idly for the govt machinery to begin the actions as in other places.

I find tremendous happiness having seen all the groups work together without any sense of religion or caste or other divisions. I had gone to a church with rations and they directed us to a temple as there were more people there.

I am sure with such an attitude, in spite of our politicians and what a number of us say, this country has a good future.”

Great that there are enough people who still believe in humanity above all…. it’s better that the hate mongers keep out… it will be a favour to the nation.
