Delhite: Try to see the bigger picture. What is going on in Kashmir for last decade, had happened in Punjab in eighties. Do you remember what the extremist groups wanted there and what they did to the minorities?

Only cowards can kill elderly people. And salute to the driver who saved lives of remaining passengers by keep driving to the safe place.

CPP question

Full House: You will have a good Pension and Oldage Benefits coming to you and others in your retirement years. They have planned all of these very well. More on it under this. There is even more to explore after you read this, so do not stop just there. Keep on top of this subject matter, because this is just getting
pendse: Yes. But your OAS & GIS payments won't be affected. You will get the same when you turn 65 from the Canadian gov. You & your employer contribute towards CPP, so it depends on how much your contribution is over the years. But OAS & GIS , you don't contribute it remains the same, it just depends upon how long you have lived in Canada.
Timon: Thanks for the response. So, time I work for the US employer and paid out of US, I wont be contributing to CPP and hence, this will affect my eventual CPP payout.
pendse: Nope. CPP won't be affected. Whatever you & your employer have contributed so far will be given back to you. The more years you work & the more CPP you pay, the more you will get back. And vice versa. How much & How long you have contributed will decide how much CPP you will get on retirement.

Getting a SIM Card at Chennai Airport

pendse: I have a relative who has 8 pre paid SIM cards lying around with him. Whenever friends and relatives from US come to visit India, he gives them the cards to use. The relatives add whatever money they want and whatever plan they want to it and put it in their US phones after removing their US SIM
pendse: Yes. Within 5 minutes you (your friend) are in and out of the store with the prepaid SIM card. In an hour or so it becomes active, after the Head Office verifies the documents. With Aadhaar card you don't even have to fill any documents, they just do E-Verification and you get the prepaid SIM . Only Rs.
rajcanada: Most major airports in India have free Wifi but there is a time limit like 30 minutes. Also you will need to register with your phone number and they will send OTP there without which you cannot register. So if you don't have a working SIM, you are mostly out of luck. In the quora link provided by pendse, it is stated you require an Indian SIM to get the OTP. Keeping alive an India SIM overseas is not easy.

Full House: Several Indians employed in Saudi Arabia are planning to send their dependants back with the kingdom set to introduce, from July 1, a monthly 'dependant fee' for expats+ . The fee 100 riyals (approx. Rs 1,700, as on Tuesday) per month for each dependent is likely to prove a big financial burden for the Indian expats. At 41 lakh, Indians form Saudi Arabia's largest expat group. So, for a family of three dependants (wife and two children), the employee will have to pay an advance tax of 3,600 riyals or around Rs 62,000 per year. While some companies are planning to compensate their employees for the 'dependant fee', most people have no option but pay it themselves. Asked what effect the 'dependant fee' would have on Indian expats in Saudi Arabia, a senior official in the ministry of external affairs (MEA) said nothing could be said as yet.
