Super Star Thalaiva RajniKanth enters Politics

Delhite: Anyone with good intentions of clean politics should be welcome. BJP was going to join hands with DMK after the 2G verdict. Some people think the 2G verdict was influenced by the future prospects of including DMK to the NDA.
zindabad: Tamilians are living in dream so dream merchants like Rajni / Kamal -film starts exploit this mentality . Why don't Tamilians choose Congress or BJP ?? What did they gain by electing MGR / Jaya / Karuna ? I wish Rajni fails in this adventure .
Vandematram: RajniKanth has entered politics yesterday. Please register here and support him to clean the Tamilnadu Political Septic Tank. By paying Rupees 10,000 per vote & TTVD winning RK Nagar things have to change for good. Please register: LINK


reddevil: Thanks for this.I'll bother my accountant on this.
Full House: In the next NINE months, all of the investments made by you in your name, there in India, will be made available to CRA/IRS as the case may be, but linking an account to an individual will be once again will become a lot difficult for anyone, unless they voluntarily submit it to the tax people.
MITRON: No, don't bother doing that.
reddevil: thank you for the replies. One last query Should I declare my Indian income (I pay tax on it to IT dept in India) to CRA.
Many: in general rs 2.5 lakhs is Exempt. But for NRIs tax deduction happens even for rs5 income; you get refund later only if you file Tax returns cause annual income upto rs2.5 lakhs is supposed to be exempt.

India Visa Validity

CrazeeGhost: Thanks
MITRON: Yes you can travel without any issues. The 6 month validity is for your passport, not your VISA. Your passport should not be expiring in 6 months after you land, but even that they don't bother checking
CrazeeGhost: If my India Visa expires in May 2018 can i travel to India in March for about a month? Or do I need 6 months of valid Visa before I arrive in India. I understand that for most countries you can enter anytime before the Expiration date and you're given your stay duration at the time of arrival.

gold coin from india

GlobalIndian: Don't know about anything brought to here but when I went to visit India, I had a quarter kilo in coins and nobody gave a damn. It was weird that those coins kind of blended in with a fistful of loonies and twonies I had in the pocket. I think they will whack upto about 10% of value if you put 'em on the table.

New Mortgage Rule and eligibility for mortgage

Full House: It might seem unreal to follow the Feds STRESS** Rule to apply for a HOME Mortgage applicant. But for these lenders to exist in the business as a lender, they have to bend backward to stay in it and also provide you with one here in Ontario. Please read the same from the links provided and if you do
Heart Stealer: Can you someone guide what is the new mortgage rules and how it is going to affect new buyer and existing home owner who are looking to get the existing home re-financed. Considering for existing home 50 % only refinancing needed and new home with 20-30 % down payment. Is it good to go to provincial regulated lenders instead to the six banks as they are not affected by the OSFI changes e.

Continue French Immersion or switch to IBT and go to English

Full House: I love to learn languages, and when I get a good grasp of it, flash away with a few high flung words and make me look educated and in many a circle, it made me look very proficient. That is my nature and I do not want to generalize the same. Now to the nitty gritty, This TOEFL iBT is nothing but an Internet based Exam to test the student.
msmann: Hi CDs Peel School Board Area My daughter is in grade 5 French Immersion. She loves learning french and she is pretty good at it. Now it is time to think about IBT/IB etc. One thing I found out is that if you want to go to these regional programs you have only one school for your area and if you are selected, then there is no more french immersion, it would be just English. Two questions 1.

febpreet: FH, your wits never cease to amaze. :). Keep it up!

PR Card Expire, Citizenship is applied

Many: Hope the OP had received communication saying Application received or Application under processing
love_n_peace: THANK YOU MR. FULL HOUSE
Full House: Here are my two bits on the subject matter. Since your Parents applied for their Passports and the processing is still in hand, you are sure of getting a call by June of 2018 for a swearing-in ceremony, and will receive the same in July of this year.

ExpressEntryNEW. EDIT 5*

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.
