Interest deduction raised by Rs 15 lakh to Rs 35 lakh for

first_imgNew Delhi: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman Friday raised tax deduction limit to Rs 3.5 lakh on interest paid on housing loan sanctioned during this fiscal for purchase of first home worth up to Rs 45 lakh, a move aimed at boosting the affordable housing segment. Besides, the government will initiate reform measures to promote rental accommodations and will finalise and circulate a model tenancy law to states, the minister said. In her maiden Budget, Sitharaman announced that 1.95 crore homes will be provided to eligible beneficiaries till 2021-22 under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Gramin (PMAY-G). The regulation of housing finance companies will now be done by the Reserve Bank of India instead of the National Housing Bank, she added.

The cost of the affordable house has been fixed at Rs 45 lakh and below. The finance minister said the interest paid on housing loans is currently allowed as a deduction to the extent of Rs 2 lakh. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to Customs”In order to provide a further impetus, I propose to allow an additional deduction of up to Rs 1.5 lakh for interest paid on loans borrowed up to March 31, 2020 for purchase of an affordable house valued up to Rs 45 lakh,” she added. The minister elaborated that a person purchasing an affordable house will now get an enhanced interest deduction of up to Rs 3.5 lakh. “This will translate into a benefit of around Rs 7 lakh to the middle-class home buyers over their loan period of 15 years.” As per the budget document, this interest deduction will be subject to condition that the loan has to be sanctioned during the current fiscal only. The home buyer should not have any other residential property in his name on the date of sanction of loan. To achieve the goal of ‘Housing for All’ and affordable housing, Sitharaman said a tax holiday has already been provided on the profits earned by developers of affordable housing. Sitharaman proposed that several reform measures would be taken to promote rental housing. “Current rental laws are archaic as they do not address the relationship between the lessor and the lessee realistically and fairly. A Model Tenancy Law will also be finalised and circulated to the states,” she added. On land parcels held by the public sector units, the finance minister said that large public infrastructure as well as affordable housing projects could be developed. Sitharaman said the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Gramin (PMAY-G) aims to achieve the objective of ‘Housing for All’ by 2022 and a total of 1.54 crore rural homes have been completed in the last five years.last_img read more

Montreal police a central theme at Quebec inquiry into Indigenous relations

first_imgTom FennarioAPTN NewsThe Quebec inquiry into Indigenous relations got an earful from Indigenous people Wednesday on how they feel Montreal police treat them.“Every time we sit down at a table, if we get invited, it’s like we’re being told what to do and how to do it rather than listening to all the valuable information that we’re bringing forward,” testified Vicky Boldo, of the Montreal Urban Aboriginal Community Strategic Network.This is in sharp contrast to almost three years ago, when Montreal police signed an agreement with a grassroots group.Sensitivity training for officers was agreed to.“During the training there were many officers laughing and not listening, and they were not pulled aside by the superiors,” said Rachel Deutsch, of the First People’s Justice Centre. “There was no consequence for them.”tfennario@aptn.calast_img read more

CN plans unilateral contacts modifications after talks with Unifor fail

by The Canadian Press Posted Feb 18, 2015 3:11 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CN plans unilateral contacts modifications after talks with Unifor fail Unifor Union President Jerry Dias gives an update on contract talks with Canadian National Railway during a press conference in Montreal on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Ryan Remiorz MONTREAL – Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) plans to unilaterally modify some terms of its collective agreement with Unifor after talks with the union broke down on the weekend.CN president and CEO Claude Mongeau said in a statement Wednesday that the changes, a number of them unspecified but including a two per cent wage increase, will be implemented Friday.The railway says a key stumbling block has been what he says is Unifor’s refusal to back down on a proposal that the company contribute cash to the union’s political and community action fund.“CN is prepared to co-invest in charitable causes, but we are not prepared to support such a union agenda,” Mongeau said.However, Unifor president Jerry Dias accused the railway of misrepresenting the union’s Canadian Community Fund, which calls for a company contribution of five cents per hour per union member.Dias said the union established a pattern at CP Rail when Unifor reached a tentative agreement Saturday, including the new fund.“CP understood the value of this fund, it’s unfortunate that CN does not see this opportunity,” Dias said.Unifor represents approximately 4,800 CN employees.It has scheduled news conference for Thursday to discuss the impasse and how the union plans to proceed.CN said the changes it has decided to impose will help improve service and efficiency.The company’s last offer on Sunday, rejected by Unifor, called for a three-year agreement with three per cent wage increases in each year.It also contained benefit improvements the company said were in line with what it negotiated recently with the United Steelworkers, which represents 3,000 maintenance-of-way employees; as well as the 1,800-member Teamsters Canada locomotive engineers and the 180-member Teamsters Canada-Rail Canada Traffic Controllers. read more

Mens Volleyball Pete Hanson recognized as AllTime Great Coach

Ohio State head men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson will be inducted into the USA Volleyball Hall of Fame in Columbus on May 22. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsAfter four years playing under Ohio State head men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson, one memory sticks out in Sanil Thomas’ mind: the pregame speech before the 2016 National Championship. A freshman at the time, Thomas had spent most of his first season as a Buckeye backing up star junior setter Christy Blough, who had totalled 1,232 assists during the 2016 season and would finish his career with 4,280 assists, ranking him No. 5 in program history for the category. In the biggest match for the Buckeyes since the 2011 National Championship, it was unlikely Thomas would see the floor, except for the occasional substitution to serve. Nevertheless, Hanson’s pregame speech was special for Thomas. “Honestly, I don’t even remember the exact theme of the speech or whatever it was, but I just know I was ready to play,” Thomas said. “And I wasn’t even playing. I was on the bench, and I was just fired up.” Hanson is known for his passion for the game of volleyball. This summer, he’ll be recognized for that dedication in front of a hometown crowd. On May 22, Hanson will be inducted into the USA Volleyball Hall of Fame in Columbus, among a group of 25 other volleyball legends. He’ll be honored with the Donald S. Shondell All-Time Great Coach Award in the contemporary division. Hanson is already a two-time Hall of Fame inductee — the American Volleyball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2015 and the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2017. He’s served as the head coach for the men’s volleyball team at Ohio State for 35 seasons starting in 1985, winning three national championships and accruing only five losing seasons during that span. His teams have won 702 of their 1,042 matches for a .674 winning percentage, including a 63-5 stretch over the 2016 and 2017 seasons, which featured the longest winning streak in Ohio State history for a head-to-head sport. Prior to his coaching career, which includes five years at the University of Wyoming and a year at Ball State, Hanson played at Kellogg Community College under head coach Mick Haley. Hanson said Haley was one of his earliest influences as both a player and a future coach. “[He] influenced me a lot about how to compete,” Hanson said. “You just needed to compete hard. You needed to get in there and grind for points and challenge the guys across the net … Mick was a very competitive individual, and I think I had that in me, but he kind of kept challenging us to bring that out.” In college, Haley was a setter under Ball State coach Donald Shondell, the legendary coach, who the award Hanson is being given is associated with. Hanson first got his start in volleyball after his father got him and a few other boys at their local church to start a middle-school league in his hometown of Flint, Michigan. “It just was a sport that resonated with me for some reason. I had played other sports,” Hanson said. “We formed a group of kids that stayed together, and it just grew from there, and three of us went to college together and just started playing, and so, lo and behold, here I am.” Tim Embaugh, who has been by Hanson’s side for the past 28 seasons as an assistant coach, said Hanson’s coaching influence extends beyond the collegiate level. Embaugh said Hanson has participated with multiple USA programs, including volunteering during the Atlanta Olympics, coaching the World University Games teams and participating with the youth and junior national teams.“He’s got a long history of not just college volleyball, but also USA Volleyball,” Embaugh said. Hanson has served as an assistant coach for various U.S. national team events from 1986-89 and 1994-95, including the National Sports Festival, the Olympic Sports Festival and the National Elite Junior Training Camp. He also served as head coach for the U.S. in the Olympic Sports Festival in 1989, the Junior Continental Championships in 2012 and the Men’s U-21 World Championship in 2013.Hanson said he puts a lot of value in learning from coaches and players around the world. “There’s good volleyball played around the world,” Hanson said. “Being exposed to other countries and other training methods and how they’re playing the game and the fact that they might train it differently, but they might train it very successfully, clearly expanded my vision and the way I looked at the game.” Hanson said this award, his third Hall of Fame induction, says more about the players and the teams he’s had at Ohio State than anything he’s accomplished himself. He praised the success of the program and what’s been achieved over the course of his tenure, but he avoids connecting himself to that success. Sanil Thomas does the opposite. “Being in the Hall of Fame once obviously is a feat in and of itself. To do it three times is something just surreal and something crazy,” Thomas said. “I think what you wouldn’t expect is the same — I would imagine, the same amount of passion he brought day one he brings that passion day — a lot; it’s a lot of days. That’s why he deserves this more than anyone.” read more

Brigade to showcase Smarteye and other safety products at Bauma Africa

first_imgBrigade Electronics will showcase a diverse range of its most durable radar and camera systems, as well as its signature broadband sound alarm to the African mining, construction and haulage markets at Bauma Africa in September as well as launching its Smarteye 3600 camera system. Making its debut in the inaugural show’s ‘UK Pavilion’, Smarteye is the first in a new generation of intelligent vehicle safety solutions: a camera system designed to eradicate blind spots, reducing collisions and driver information overload thanks to a single bird’s-eye view of the entire vehicle and its immediate surroundings.Comprising four cameras placed around the vehicle, Smarteye technology works by ‘stitching’ each image together to provide a complete and accurate all-round view, as if from above. Powered by software from ASL Technology, a specialist software developer of video image processing and other products, each camera’s ultra-wide angle lens renders a realistic, light-balanced video image displayed in real time on a high-definition cab monitor­­­­– with programmable options to highlight areas of greatest risk.Visitors will be able to see the Smarteye system in action as part of a broader product showcase, which comprises its Backeye range of heavy duty cameras and monitors, its new-to-market digital wireless system, and a selection of its popular Backsense radar products: Xtreme, WorkZone, and WorkSight. Brigade’s bbs-tek, white sound reversing alarm will also be on display – which continues to earn international industry plaudits for its patented directional sound that only grabs attention in the immediate vicinity of danger.Karel De Bont, Brigade Electronics’ South African director, said “Equipment owners and operators across Africa see safety as an absolute necessity, in all industries. That’s why Brigade continues to focus on providing solutions that surpass industry standards and deliver in even the most challenging natural environments.”last_img read more

Réduction des gaz à effet de serre lONU veut des objectifs plus

first_imgRéduction des gaz à effet de serre : l’ONU veut des objectifs plus ambitieux Mardi, à la veille de l’ouverture du Forum ministériel mondial sur l’environnement à Bali, l’ONU a publié une étude qui invite les pays à relever significativement leurs engagements de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Cet effort s’avère nécessaire s’ils veulent avoir une chance d’enrayer les impacts dévastateurs du réchauffement climatique.”Les pays vont devoir être beaucoup plus ambitieux dans leurs objectifs de réduction des gaz à effet de serre pour que le monde puisse effectivement limiter la hausse des températures” a déclaré Achim Steiner, directeur exécutif du Programme des Nations unies pour l’environnement (Pnue). Et d’avertir : “Nous savons aujourd’hui que l’inaction sur le long terme en matière de changement climatique mènera à des scénarios catastrophes”.A la date butoir du 31 janvier 2010, fixée à l’issue du sommet de Copenhague, soixante pays dont les 27 membres de l’UE, la Chine et les États-Unis, avaient présenté leurs objectifs individuels de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES). Lors de la conférence internationale de décembre, un seul objectif a été fixé : celui de limiter le réchauffement global de la planète à 2°C. Or d’après les experts du climat, cet objectif ne sera atteint que si les émissions mondiales de GES sont réduites d’au moins 50% d’ici à 2050.Après l’échec du sommet de Copenhague, qui n’a conduit à aucun accord contraignant, les négociations internationales sur le climat doivent reprendre en avril à Bonn, en Allemagne. Cette conférence permettra d’entamer de nouvelles discussions et de mettre en place un plan de travail en vue du prochain sommet mondial sur le climat qui se tiendra à Cancun, au Mexique, du 29 novembre au 10 décembre 2010.Le 26 février 2010 à 18:27 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Rescued Cook Inlet Beluga Whale Calf Cannot Be Released Back To Wild

first_imgPhoto courtesy of NOAA According to that statement from NOAA, he is nutritionally and socially dependent, lacks both survival and socialization skills needed to be successful on his own in the wild, and it is likely his mother either abandoned him or died. The calf also experienced a collapsed lung—a condition which may recur and compromise survivability in the wild by limiting his ability to dive. NOAA says the placement decision is expected in the coming weeks. Once that decision is made, NOAA will work with the recipient facility to expedite the calf’s transportation and transition so that he can be integrated into a social group where he can thrive with other whales. This non-releasable decision comes after 24/7 care by experts at the ASLC for more than three months. The calf will be placed into permanent care at a U.S. facility through a process outlined by NOAA Fisheries Office of Protected Resources. Story as aired: Audio PlayerJennifer-on-beluga-calf.mp3VmJennifer-on-beluga-calf.mp300:00RPdcenter_img The calf belongs to a population of belugas designated as endangered under the Endangered Species Act and depleted under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

(Representational Image)A man along with his wife was arrested for allegedly declaring his mother a witch, and starving and thrashing her, in West Bengal’s Bishnupur. The victim was tortured and thrown out of her house on Sunday (June 16) night in North Gobindapur area of Bishnupur.The woman was rescued by her neighbours, who were aware of her situation, according to local media reports. She claimed that she was regularly tortured and pressurised by her son and his wife for giving away the ancestral property. According to her, the son wanted to sell to a promoter. “I don’t want to give the property to them that is why they are torturing me. I will never give the property to them,” the victim, who works as a local administrator, reportedly said.She also alleged that the family members of her daughter-in-law, along with her son, accused her of being a witch and then thrashed her before kicking her out of her own house on Sunday. She filed a complaint against them later and the situation is being monitored by police. The accused have denied all allegations and said that they did not throw the woman out of her home. They said that she left on her own will.While India still doesn’t have a specific and particular law that penalises witch-hunting, provisions under the Indian Penal Code 1860 (the charge for murder, an attempt for murder, hurt, rape, outraging a woman’s modesty) can be invoked in such cases. The West Bengal government was also looking to enact a law against the perpetrators of witch hunting, for protecting the victims, which suggested penal action for branding any woman a witch and committing such atrocities.last_img read more


first_img 2 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Games are won at the line of scrimmage, and right now, the Cardinals are losing that battle.Mike Jurecki, Co-host of The Drive with B-Train & JureckiThe Cardinals got off to excellent start but couldn’t sustain drives after the first quarter, still struggling protecting the quarterback. Arizona gave up six sacks, 11 quarterback hits and 10 tackles for loss.Arizona dominated in yardage and time of possession going into halftime but it didn’t show it on the scoreboard. The Cardinals outgained Dallas 145-57 and held the ball for 20:41 to the Cowboys’ 9:19.The Cardinals’ lack of a running game (21 carries for 49 yards) showed again. Starter Chris Johnson had only 17 yards on 12 carries while Andre Ellington showed a little flash with 22 yards on five carries. Arizona’s longest run of the night was six yards. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Vince Marotta, Co-host of Bickley & MarottaWhere have I seen this before? Oh yeah, it was two weeks ago in Detroit, when the Cardinals squandered opportunities to put a sloppy Lions team away and saw their defense fold in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys weren’t sloppy Monday night, just ineffective for most of the first half and the Cardinals’ defense folded again in the fourth quarter, allowing Dak Prescott and Brice Butler (of all people) to beat them. Butler had a 37-yard touchdown catch and then a 53-yarder on which Tyrann Mathieu fell asleep and nearly didn’t touch Butler down in time to prevent another score. No matter — Zeke Elliott scored on an 8-yard run to seal the deal.The Cardinals were impressive on offense early, but had a touchdown nullified by a holding penalty on Jared Veldheer before Phil Dawson missed a 36-yard field goal.Like I said, it all sounds familiar, huh?Dave Burns, Co-host of Burns & GamboIn many ways tonight’s game was similar to the opener vs. Detroit. A strong start wasted because they couldn’t fully take advantage of it. A touchdown taken off the board on a holding call on Jared Veldheer. A missed Phil Dawson field goal. A drive that started at the Cards 44 yard line that yielded no points. The Cardinals had 140 yards in the first quarter but only 192 the rest of the way including the 85 yard drive at the end of the game that got them no points. Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img The offensive line continues to be the big problem. It’s time to start thinking of real solutions at right tackle and perhaps right guard as well. Palmer put up gaudy numbers in the first quarter when he wasn’t touched. But after the first quarter he was sacked six times and the game flipped. Dawson’s miss was his third in as many games. He had three misses all of last year. Defensively, give it up to Dak Prescott. His arm strength on the move is something to see.A shame that a great effort from Fitz was wasted. The catch he made looked like something out of “The Matrix.”Craig Grialou, Reporter It’s simple: If the Cardinals cannot protect Carson Palmer, then they cannot win. Of course, as we’ve seen through the first three games, that’s easier said than done.Palmer was sacked a season-high six times and hit 11 more in Monday Night’s loss to Dallas.The right side of the offensive line — guard Evan Boehm and tackle Jared Veldheer — needs to step up, and that goes without saying. Meanwhile, the left side needs to get healthy. Will D.J. Humphries be ready to go next week? What about Mike Iupati? And how hurt is Alex Boone, who exited the game late in the fourth quarter? The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo GLENDALE, Ariz. — A fast start, and a painful finish.Those few words describe the Arizona Cardinals’ 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football at University of Phoenix Stadium.Here’s some quick reaction from the staff of 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station and on the game.Of course, you can get more reaction Tuesday, starting at 6 a.m. with Doug and Wolf and continuing with The Blitz with Bertrand Berry & Mike Jurecki and Bickley & Marotta — who will both broadcast from the Cardinals practice facility in Tempe.
