NEW DELHI: The Union Cabinet has approved amendments in the Customs and Excise Act relating to abolition of cesses and surcharges on various goods and services to facilitate implementation of GST. Following this, the Centre will abolish 16 cesses and surcharges on union excise and service tax as it lays down the path for rolling out Goods and Services Tax (GST) from July. The amendments in the Customs Act, 1962, allow furnishing of information relating to import or export of goods by specified persons to enable analysis and detection of cases of under or over-valuation in imports and exports. Cesses to be abolished include Krishi Kalyan and Swachh Bharat. This would lead to a loss of about Rs 65,000 crore by the exchequer. To make up for this dent, the government would have to find resources from the budget. "Amendments or repeal of various provisions of other Acts which will no longer be relevant consequent on rollout of GST will result in cleansing of the irrelevant portions from the Statute Book and reduce multiplicity of taxes," an official release said after the Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Other interesting features include built-in Wi-Fi and a clip-on GPS adaptor supplied with the camera (though not our review sample) and dual SD card slots for backups (saving to both cards simultaneously), overflow (using the second card when the first is full), or for separating JPEGs from raw files. The X1D is very much a raw camera. The JPEGs it saves are just one-quarter size, and designed for quick reference or sharing, not for final use. Instead, you use Hasselblads own Phocus raw conversion/editing software to process your images, or a third-party program like Adobe Camera Raw.

MUMBAI: Kajaria Ceramics is set to gain from the new housing policy which has now been now broadened to include middle income (MIG) segment says a March 2017 HSBC Global research report. The Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (MHUPA) has broadened the affordable housing policy and now households with income up to INR 18 lakh are also eligible for government subsidies for home loans under the Credit linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS). "We calculate this could reduce the purchase price by 2% to 21% and higher benefits will accrue with reducing ticket size. The overall benefits for the buyer could be even higher considering the earlier budget announcements relating to supply-side incentives which are likely to be passed on," the HSBC report said. Demand in tier II and tier III cities will be more responsive to the new policy. Tier II/tier III cities have a lower housing ticket size due to cheaper land and lower construction costs on the one hand and a higher number of households qualify the set income criteria which will result in higher participation versus metropolitan cities.

In 2014, ISRPL began a 120,000 t/y Emulsion Styrene Butadiene Rubber (ESBR) which is specifically used for making tires. In 2015, the Reliance Group started a 150,000 ESBR plant. The combined output from the two companies approximately covers 270,000 t/y ESBR demand. ESBR is mainly used in tires. Singh estimates strong tire demand growth from the automobile manufacturers is expected in the coming years. But market sources said more investments are needed in SR capacity as India, backed by the strong economic growth, is set to become the world's largest automobile market in the coming years. This include SSBR which is among the advanced products in the SR range to compliment Natural Rubber used in making tyres, they said. Indian oil companies are already investing in downstream products to meet the feedstock requirement. They are adding more butadiene and styrene capacity, the officials said.

I grew up playing the games consoles that belonged to my older brothers, including the Sega Mega Drive and Playstation. I would hog the Game Boy Color all the time! Tell us about the games you’ve worked on. My latest and proudest work would be Planet Coaster (released 2016, PC), a theme park management game where you can build your own amusement park and roller-coaster rides. I worked as a UI artist, and it was this project that pushed me to look further into UX design. Previous games I’ve worked on as a UI and 2D artist include Elite: Dangerous (console/PC), Tales From Deep Space (iOS/mobile), RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 (iOS), Frozen Synapse Prime, PixelJunk Monsters and PixelJunk Shooter (PS Vita). I’ve also freelanced for indie games like The Siege and the Sandfox (console/PC) and Planet Flip (iOS). How has your profession changed since you began? My specific skills as a UI/UX designer are actually quite niche and depending on studio size, may not be prioritised.

Actor Shah Rukh Khan has to include notional rent from his Dubai villa in his income tax return filed in India, the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) has ruled. Khan had submitted to the ITAT that under the India-UAE tax treaty, income from immovable property in Dubai would be liable to tax in the UAE and, therefore, he had not offered it to be taxed in India. The ITAT rejected his contention. However, the two member ITAT (Mumbai) bench of Amit Shukla and GS Pannu added: "Credit for taxes paid in the UAE, if any, would be allowed as per the law." The ITAT directed the I-T officer to rework the final liability, which would arise in the hands of the actor, under the headincome from house property“. This decision will have wide ramifications for taxpayers having a second home overseas, especially those who fall under the jurisdiction of the Mumbai bench of the ITAT.

Iran has agreed in principle to accept some oil payments in rupees to fund imports from India worth an estimated $2.5 billion a year, a senior commerce ministry official told Reuters. No timeline has been fixed as yet to implement the new mechanism, however, as both sides await the outcome of Iran's presidential election in May and seek clarity on the Trump administration's approach toward Tehran, he said. The payment woes have hit the revenues of Indian exporters as they struggle to complete deals struck when the rupee account was flush with funds. Several containers from India are held up at Iranian ports, exporters said. Our clients are threatening to cancel orders and procure from China, said Jayanti Goela at Gas Lab Asia, a Delhi-based exporter that had won an order to supply gas storage tanks to Tehran. India's major exports to Iran include food, chemicals, engineering products, garments and drugs.

Since 2002, MINI USA has sold and delivered more than 725,000 MINIs to delighted customers across the country. Over the past 15 years, MINI has grown its vehicle portfolio from the iconic single Hardtop model that launched the brand here in the U.S. to include four unique models each with their own personality. The MINI Convertible, MINI Clubman and MINI Countryman have become staples of the MINI product line, providing the premium performance, daring design, and fun-to-drive dynamics MINI customers have come to know and expect from the brand. And as demand for the product increased, so did the company’s dealer network, growing from 66 dealers in 2002 to 127 dealers in 2017 across 39 states.
