KOLKATA: ICRA estimates that debt refinancing or takeover by state governments will lower book losses of discom from Rs 67,000 crore in FY2015 to Rs 37500 crore in FY2017. ICRA finds that the progress in implementation of the Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY) has been satisfactory. Some 22 states including union territories joined the scheme and 13 out of these states issued bonds totalling Rs 2.32 lakh crore towards refinancing debt on the books of the state-owned distribution utilities. Girishkumar Kadam, sector head & vice president, ICRA Ratings, said: "Debt refinancing under UDAY is resulting in an improvement in the liquidity profile of discoms and is likely to improve their ability to buy power and pay power generators in a timely manner, going forward." ICRA, however, notes that the progress in filing of the tariff petitions for FY2018 by the state-owned discoms is less than satisfactory with only 16 out of the 29 states having filed so far.

MUMBAI: Reversing its earlier order, the Reserve Bank today said the bank branches dealing in government businesses need not remain open on April 1 in view of the annual closing business. In its earlier directive on March 24, the RBI had asked all authorised banks to be open on all days from March 25 to April 1, including Saturday, Sunday and all holidays, to facilitate the government's receipts and payments. The departments concerned of RBI were also to remain open on these days. In its revised instructions issued today, RBI said, "On reconsideration, it has been decided that these branches need not be opened on April 1, 2017." In a letter to the Indian Banks' Association, unions AIBEA and AIBOA today said the RBI issued the directive "very late, causing huge resentment" among bank employees. "The RBI is fully aware that March 25 and 26 would be weekly holidays for the banks.

But, before you invest, make sure that you are aware of how it works. Click here to know more about it. 4. Online Insurance Buying insurance plans such as online term plan or online Ulips at the last minute may not work always. Although making payment online is possible through cards or net banking, the underwriting of the policy might call for medical tests which could result in a decline of the policy or the insurer might ask for 'extra premium' owing to adverse medical reports. Say, you buy insurance online on 31st March and the policy actually gets issued anytime during the first week of April (next financial year), still you would be eligible for tax benefit, but, in case the policy doesn't gets issued, you lose on the tax benefit, the premium is however refunded.

Did Daesh, he asked, allow people to live in freedom and security? He also praised the Shiite militias as national heroes who heeded the call to defend the nation from Daesh issued by top Shiite cleric Ayatollah Ali Sistani in summer of 2014. He said there was no truth to the rumor that he planned to ask them to dissolve (after the Mosul campaign is over). Last Friday, member of parliament for Ninewah Province (of which Mosul is the capital), Farah al-Siraj, had asked al-Abadi to open an inquiry into the strike that allegedly killed 263 civilians. Minister of Defense Irfan al-Hayali immediately complied, beginning last weekend. Member of parliament Salim al-Juburi, demanded an emergency meeting of a parliamentary committee to discuss the massacre at Mosul. This is Juan speaking now. First of all, likely what happened was that there were snipers atop some buildings in the al-Jadidah neighborhood of West Mosul, who were killing advancing Iraqi troops.
