India's political landscape

Garvo Gujarati: I really feed bad about good people who blindly supported Kejriwal even after his numbers of U-turns. Anyway things get corrected over the period of time and now the true colors of the demon are surfaced.
zindabad: psychopath - shameless Kejru begging to Sheila Dixit and Congress to do " Gathbandhan " . I remember there was an old movie " Delhi ka Thug " .. This psychopath believes that delhi people are chu**ya ...
elmer fudd: All accused in the 2G scam acquitted by CBI special court (CBI is under govt. control). Looks like BJP and DMK might be forging an alliance. I wonder how Modi will slink out of this, considering it has happened right under his nose.
zindabad: वक्त कितनी जल्दी निकल जाता है पता ही नहीं चलता .


MITRON: The renewal process will take the same amount of time as a brand new first time application. So give it about 2 months, don't expect it any sooner, just because it is a renewal. Don't book any plane tickets till you have the OCI in hand.
MITRON: BLS Brampton has an in house photo service if you want to use it. BLS In house Photography services : BLS visa and passport application center has an in-house photo-booth facility which enables
samna1978: Has anyone renewed OCI for their kids recently at the brampton location? Is there any place near the BLS centre which can take OCI pictures and upload it for us? thx

Wifi Internet in India

tamilkuravan: There are strict verification of ID for purchasing any Wifi items. Aaadhaar card is asked these days. So you have to buy this, using your parents as a front. Only tops ups / monthly payements are a breeze.
MITRON: If you are just going to use internet 3-4 hrs a day, the phone as a hot spot will be more than enough. But if you are going to use it 10 hrs a day, better to have a WiFi dongle or stick. Leave the dongle behind for your parents and for your future visits.
MITRON: Yes, you can use that. But generally the phone battery drains faster when you use it as a hot spot and phone also heats up a bit. So either you have to keep the phone plugged in while using it as a
captainbeam: Thanks Mitron for your informative posts. I have to check what kind of coverage Jio has in my area in Delhi. Airtel should have good coverage. do you think it is better to just buy a 4G enabled cell phone with lots of data and just use that as a hotspot around the house?

PIO to OCI conversion in 2019

MITRON: Apply for a brand new OCI in India. Don't do PIO to OCI conversion. LINK
GlobalIndian: I am aware of three white girls who married Indian men in India and got OCI; during the entire process of obtaining OCI, they never had to leave India. So, TK I think you should be able to convert your PIO to OCI without leaving India, if you do not wish to leave.
zindabad: Just check with BLS , I think there should not be any issue to convert PIO ~ OCI in India ******** How do you become/convert to an OCI? You can apply through the Indian embassy in your country of
tamilkuravan: i have a PIO. Living in india. for conversion i need to come to Toronto, which i canot. I plan to land in Canada in may. So what are my options? Murali

stranded in airport vancouver airport. URGENT advice needed

Full House: SORRY TO SEE YOU WITH YOUR PANTS DOWN. Normally you chech the tickets issued as soon as you get them. With these E-TICKETS, it is advisable to chek them and verify and if needed, rectify as soon you find a mistake. The Credit Card companies and the Airlines too stand behind you and make sure that you travel in comfort and don't get inconvenienced.
uday62: I booked my return ticket to India from Vancouver airport through an agent which is suggested by some CD members in this forum.

Full House: - The data 15, 30, 45, and 60 etc., are spaced evenly, which will provide you with an even spacing on the X-AXIS. The other data alongside the previous numbers will provide you with a plot on the Y-AXIS, One on the Left side and the Second one on the Y-AXIS on the Right side of the chart. You
dimple2001: I believe what you are looking for is a Secondary Axis. If so, your data would be as follows: First column data is the y -axis on the left side of the chart, second column data is the x axis, and the third column of data is the y axis noted on the right side of the chart (this is the secondary axis).

New immigrant , looking for good course suggestion for banking domain.

Full House: It is sad that none of the Courses that one takes for entry into a specific JOB is recognized by the others. In short NO COURSE IS OF INTERNATIONAL in Nature. So, you have to learn everything all over again to get an entry, as it becomes Mandatory for that JOB. As a general rule, The Stock markets are Expected to rise or they are biased to move upwards over the years.

Toronto Real Estate Market Watch report - February 2019

sanjeevm: Dear CDs, Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) released the figures for February 2019 for the residential transactions done through TREB MLS system. Highlights: - Total GTA sales in February 2019 were down by 2.4% (year over year) - February 2019 Vs February 2018 - The OSFI mandated mortgage stress test is one of the reasons for lower sales. - New listings also declined by a greater annual rate, creating the tight market (Supply-Demand) condition. - Resulting in average price growth year over year. - MLS home price index and average selling price - both were up modestly. - The prices of Semi Detached type of properties lead the way this month, in terms of growth. The year over year increase in the average selling price for Semi detached was: 9.9%, followed by Condo apartments which saw an increase of 6.1% - Average selling price for Detached properties slided down by 2.1% (year over year) - However, ASP for townhouse remained more or less same. It may still be a good time to upgrade from Semi Detached to Detached property.

Current situation on Housing market in GTA area, what will happen next...?

RBO: Toronto real estate prices rose 1.7% YoY in January to a new average price of $748,328. Thats good news for sellers in the GTA, however it is a big irritation for homebuyers who have lead to believe government action would benefit them and create opportunities to buy. The GTA market is still a big market and only the Montreal housing market has a chance to outperform the GTA housing market through 2020. Housing markets in Calgary and Vancouver are down significantly. We are back to about spring 2016 prices. Speculators drove the prices from 2014 onward. So many people not able to close the house deal or just walking away. The value of the home just dropped by at least $200k in some of the GTA Area. All investors outside of GTA were propping up demand cause of easy money. Many regular families bought being greedy.
