Congratulations Modi, for fast tracking this in India!

ramar2005: Thanks for sharing the information. A few years back, award winning journalist and Mr.P. Sainath had extensively written in The Hindu how cotton growers in Vidharbha region of Maharashtra were cheated by this MNC and many were forced to commit suicide.
elmer fudd: BJP- The Plan B of the Globalists? While I admire Modi's dynamism, he is still a corporate shill. Considering all others are corporate shills as well, he is a better shill than the other shills. Otherwise,


Finally Indian visa on arrival for Canadians

tamilkuravan: It is not visa on arrival in the literal sense. You need to apply for an e-visa over the internet 48 hours before you land. It will be approved and a e-confirmation will be given to you. You will have to present an e-confirmation to the immigration at India for them to issue you a VOA. Murali
hchheda: And vis-e-versa ?? LINK Visa on arrival for Indians.. That was unexpected. ;) I think the news portal made a mistake. Harper announced visa on arrival for canadians to India, not the other way... Hiren
rajcanada: During recent visa to Canada, Modi announced that Canadians visiting India will get visa on arrival. As usual Indian babus describe it in way that is misleading. Actually it should not be called "visa

Completed 10 years in Canada

ramar2005: Chandreshji, over the years have observed that an individual who is nobody in one place,country, profession, age is very successful in some other place,city etc. But all movies don't become box office hit. Life is similar.
febpreet: +1 :)
san-hugo: In India , you can be a millionaire ( in rupees) in one year's time :-), but the question is can a person having no matter how good the job , can earn, invest and be net worth 6 Crores (1 million dollars as of today) in 10 years, starting with 10 lacs INR like Op did ? Only one way as I see, if he would have bought multiple properties in Gurgaon or Blore 7-8 years ago or done some lucrative business , but that is not the case here.
Fido: I must have misunderstood these lines. Plus the thread was going in a direction which was making it appear that a million dollar mark is an unattainable / very difficult to attain WISH .... I opined how important is a million dollars in context of life & happiness.


How to sell used car (2006 Toyota Corolla)

RBO: Hi MAK3, I send you a PM please check it out... regards
RBO: it is not necessary that all the time you will get best/good car when you do a private deal....sometime you get lemon too. most of the people in private deal hiding facts about any issues in the car. let me give you a example: Guess person is selling car in Kijiji with Safety and Emission test and car has a some minor oil leakage underneath between engine and transmission.
Fido: Sir , The sales statistics goes against your personal experience ... You do find a lot of Camrys or Accords vs Corollas and Civics but the same proportion does not hold true for BMWs and Mercs implying that for most people do not feel that they will get equivalent extra benefit from a Merc or a BMW as compared to the extra payment they would make upfront as well as in maintenance.
chandresh: From personal experience I can say that it is not Marginal utility - considering various monetary and non monetary factors of life.


Dollar account

adamthorat: Its called FCNR , but you can only have it as a fixed deposit..its not going to be like a regular savings or chequing account ..it will be more like a GIC. Its fully repatriable. But if you are going back for good and become an Indian resident again then ..you can have a RFC savings account ..need not be a fixed deposit.
chandresh: From ICICI bank web site: FCNR Fixed Deposit Account Key Highlights Earn high yields on foreign currency earnings. Account available in a choice of 9 currencies : USD, GBP, EUR, JPY, CAD, AUD, SGD, HKD and CHF. Principal amount and interest earned fully repatriable. Interest earned is tax free in India. Hope that answers your question!
Full House: - Most of us who live abroad would certainly like to have an account denominated to suit the area where we live so as not to get affected by the Currency Fluctuations. Hence the opening of an FCNR or the Foreign Currency Non-Resident Account. The Banks will normally ask you which currency you would

vijitsharma: Thanks for your inspiring words! These 3 agencies are mentioned on the CIC website : 1. Comparative Education Service University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies 2. International Credential Assessment Service of Canada 3. World Education Services I went through their websites


Filing tax return from India

Full House: - This is not your FIRST tax return and hence they have all the information that they need from you. You can choose any FREE tax software that is available on the net and file your return with it and do it electronically. IF THIS IS YOUR LAST TAX RETURN, then, you should ALSO file it on PAPER and submit it by Registered Post too. To make it into a LAST RETURN with CRA, you must file papers with CRA to see if you are a NON-RESIDENT.
MKBLR: I have to file for taxes, from India as we have moved back. Is there a way to file for taxes such as CRA on line filing, etc?

Additional child benefits

tamilkuravan: It is said in the Star that many families are missing on important funding from federal govt. for children under the age of 18. People like Hasni who are new to the country or immigrants earning family income less than $ 60,000 per year (and who have children below 18) are the ones who will be mostly benefitted by this. Pass it on. Murali
