Anonymous gets on Reliance Communications' Nerves

This is really a story about a group of hacktivists venting and having a lot of fun, but unfortunately, some people lost some of their Internet access in the process. On Saturday the 26th, Anonymous India hacked into Reliance Comm’s servers – which meant major sites were blocked for some subscribers. Apparently, what spurred Anonymous into targeting Reliance Comm was that the company had been blocking sites other what had specified by court orders – those of the Madras High Court, to be precise. Maybe you’re wondering why censorship is an issue for us. It’s because, while it’s largely in theory, it’s also because when it happens, there isn’t enough of a public outcry about it. Our last mention of this was just a few days ago. Coming to the “theory,” some of you might remember that half a year ago, Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal wanted all potentially objectionable content – whether on blog posts or tweets – to be pre-screened before they were available to potentially offen

TV Ads Can't Exceed 12 Mins Per Hour

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a new regulation under which, television channels cannot show advertisements in excess of twelve minutes per hour. As directed under the Standards of Quality of Service Regulations 2012, the authority has further stated that shortfall in duration during any clock hour cannot be carried over either. That is not where the stipulations end. The statement further specifies that the minimum time gap between two consecutive ad breaks should not be less than 15 minutes. When broadcasting movies, this minimum time gap has been set at 30 minutes. Moreover, advertisers cannot increase audio levels to pull viewer attention, it needs to be in sync with "... the audio level of the programmes being broadcast in the channel". The move comes after TRAI noticed several complaints from the consumers, being raised across several forums with respect to duration, repetition, increased audio levels in ads, and misplaced

National Pension Scheme is an excellent tool to save tax

National Pension Scheme is an excellent tool to save tax:   As you are aware, there are two types of National Pension System (NPS) accounts - Tier I & II.Tier I account is mandatory, whereas Tier II account is optional. Thus, only Tier I account is eligible for tax benefits and is, in the true sense, the core of NPS. However, normal tax provisions of taxation of profits on sale of investments are applicable when you redeem the units credited in your Tier II account. But all deposits and withdrawals to and from the Tier II account are tax neutral. There are no limits as to number and amount of withdrawals from Tier II account. Taxation for your contribution to Tier I account: The Section 80 CCD allows you deduction for contributions made by you or your employer towards NPS account. There are some restrictions on the contribution which you can make towards your NPS Tier I account under this Section. Like if you are employed, you can claim deduction up to 10% of your salary,

You can save additional tax through NPS

You can save additional tax through NPS Many taxpayers feel that the Rs 1.2 lakh tax-saving investment limit under Section 80C and 80CCF is too low. However, a handful of employers, including Bangalore-based Wipro Technologies, is allowing its staff to claim more tax deductions by investing under the newly introduced Section 80CCD(2). Under the new section, up to 10% of an employee's basic salary put in the New Pension Scheme is tax deductible. This means a person with an annual basic salary of Rs 5 lakh (nearly Rs 40,000 a month) can get an additional deduction of Rs 50,000 if his employer puts this money on his behalf in the NPS. Assuming that he will have other income (bonus, special allowance, interest, etc), which puts him in the 30% tax bracket, the NPS investment under Section 80CCD(2) will reduce his tax liability by almost Rs 15,000. This clause was introduced in the previous budget by amending the rules regarding the deduction of contribution made on beha

Beware of Online Scams

        Fraudsters send attractive offers through letters, e-mails, calls, SMS messages asking you to deposit money to participate in schemes that " sound too good to be true ". Later, they withdraw the money and stop further communication. Here is a list of the most common frauds:           Contests and lotteries, asking you to make a payment in order to receive your prize. Job offers / applications for jobs / offers from large corporations and public institutions asking for your confidential banking information. Intimation of gifts and inheritances from a foreign country, asking you for personal information or money. Schemes offering very high returns on small investments.         Make sure you don't respond to such fraudulent messages.   To know more, visit the "Safe Banking" section at launches India specific online shopping service launches India specific online shopping service

Savings bank account portability: A distant dream   After mobile number and health insurance portability, the government now plans to introduce number portability for savings bank accounts. Once it comes into effect, you will be able to move your account from one bank to another without having to change the account number.   For unhappy banking customers, this could be a relief as it will save them the trouble of going through the process of opening a new bank account each time they want to switch banks. This will also help you do away with multiple bank accounts. The enhanced competition could lead to better services too.   A similar suggestion was also recommended in the Damodaran Committee Report last year. It stated that people who have to relocate often, usually end up opening multiple accounts at different locations. To avoid this, there should be uniform
