Aadhar Card

smiley1: What about linking phone sim card to adhaar.
smiley1: What about linking phone sim card to adhaar.
Smiley: As a foreigner and somebody who did not stay in India for the past 6 months , I think we are not eligible to apply for a Aadhar card anyway
MITRON: Nope its not Mandatory if you are a foreign citizen or foreign PR holder. If your account is NRO or NRE there is no need to link Aadhaar card to the bank account. If its an ordinary resident account, the bank might be on your Ass to link it.
new_migrant: Can anyone please confirm the last date for linking Aadhar Card with bank accounts in India. I understand the date has been extended to 31st March 2018 from 31st December 2017. Is Aadhar card mandatory for NRIs.

soberflier: Hey Fido, Did you work or have a mailing address in the US ever and share that with that bank? Cheers
Many: Thank you Pendse Saheb.

Many: If I don't comply with the FATCA requirement (sent by my Indian bank); Can the Income-Tax guys stop my Refunds? Thus far I get refund for the TDS on my NRO deposits after I file Indian I-T returns.

Shut down OR Melt down.

Delhite: Indian IT industry is going to get a big blow in the next 5 years. The new trend it automation for IT processes similar to what happened to manufacturing in Eighties. Existing 30% jobs will go away due to automation when all support repeated jobs will be automated.

Repatriating money from India

MITRON: No you don't. With online banking you can do it. They have a button for repatriation. Also any documents can be faxed or emailed to them (bank) directly either by you or your CA to the bank. Or even couriered.
gsrnew: Thank you @rajcanada and @mitron. My other query is that do i need to be in India to start the process of funds transfer. I am in Canada right now with no plans to visit India. However, i need the funds before the end of this year.
MITRON: Repatriating from NRE account is far easier. No CA required or Income Tax clearance required. With a click of button you can transfer the money. From NRO , generally you will require a CA. Plus you have to show the bank & IT dept.
rajcanada: Contact a CA registered with Income Tax Department in India. They will explain the process to you.

Express Entry.. EDIT 1

Full House: Are you the lucky one !! Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has invited 2,000 candidates in the Express Entry pool to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a draw that took place the morning of Wednesday, November 8. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of the lowest-ranked candidate issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) was 458. This latest draw, the 77th to take place since Express Entry was first introduced in January, 2015 and the 27th so far this year, is the first draw to operate under a new procedure whereby in the event that multiple candidates have tied CRS scores, profiles are ranked according to the date and time of submission of the profiles, with profiles that have been in the pool longer being prioritized for invitation over newer profiles. This tie-break policy was first unveiled by IRCC as a possible future strategy last June.
