OCI and Verification of Status

dan: Thanks YogicLogic it helps. This means that this document i.e. VOS is needed whether I apply at the FRRO in India or with BLS in Canada. Category info under Remarks is the key as you said. Best, d
febpreet: Hi. I am looking to get my PIO converted to OCI (I am late, I know). Are they still accepting applications? The website has the deadline notification as December 2017. Contacting BLS on phone was of no use as it's been busy forever. I have to travel to India for about 29 days and already have a PIO.
YogicLogic: Dan, Using the VOS with the immigration category info under Remarks, i submitted my OCI application. It was successfully processed and I was able to get my OCI without any problems. The key was to ensure that the VOS document contains Immigration Category information under remarks. I included a covering letter to the CIC requesting them to include this information in the VOS.
MITRON: Forget that . I know a guy who was Single and was 30 +, when he applied for OCI. They wanted his parent's landing paper ! if he wanted to apply for OCI ! What parent's landing people have to do with an Adult male is beyond me. He was 20 + when he came to Canada with his parents. So he was not a minor when he came to Canada, neither was he a minor when he was applying for OCI.

Buying a Plot of Land for Capital Apreciation In India

meitsme: My 0.02 cents: If you have plan to use that land in future (for yourself or your close relative) or do not want to bring money back then it is different story for investment. If you are jus investing for ROI then consider exchange rate when you want to bring money back.
puttoo: Land will always appreciate in value faster then the apartments. Infact when DLF were selling land in Gurgaon in late 1990's, they also realized this. That is why then sold land in DLF Phase 1 to 3 but their Phase 4 was converted to high rise apartments.
Fido: Capital gains is 20 % adjusted to the difference in circle rates . Repartration is a gray area for me also although I feel that as long as we have apaid taxes , the money should be repartriable .
pratickm: What are the tax implications when the property is eventually sold for capital gains? Will it be taxed at the full marginal tax rate? Also, what are the options for repatriating the money to Canada?

Will the mobile from India work in Canada?

Warrior: Sometimes you may have to manually set the frequency. Almost all triband gsm phones from India had the 1900 band and you just go to the network settings inside the phone menu and select the 1900 frequency. There is no provider that uses only 850 band here in Canada, AFAIK.
Maharaj: As long as your Triband have 850/1900 - it will work everywhere here in Canada & US. But Triband phone in India won't have at least one of 850/1900. In India you need 900/1800 frequency phone. Your Triband may not work in some area if it does not support 850.
Fido: Thats true my tri band did not work here and I had to send it back.
DesiJatt: Dont know about Canada, the GSM frequencies are different in US from India. I believe you need quad band handset / instrument (& not tri-band) to work in North America. Can some one confirm this .... Thanks :cheers:

gopalpai: Make a checklist, check whether this medicine is in your home or whether it has been recommended by your doctor... please DO NOT use it... Please Read Very Carefully - INFORM ALL YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY MEMBERS India has become a dumping ground for banned drugs; also the business for production of banned drugs is booming. Plz make sure that u buy drugs ! only if prescribed by a doctor(Also, ask which company manufactures it, this would help to ensure that u get what is prescribed at the Drug Store) and that also from a reputed drug store. Not many people know about these banned drugs and consume them causing a lot of damage to themselves. We forward Jokes and other junk all the time.... This is far more important.

Googles driverless car gets DMV license in Nevada

Vandematram: LINK Google’s self-driven cars will soon be appearing on Nevada roads after the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles approved on Monday the nation’s first autonomous vehicle licence. The move came after officials rode along on drives on highways, in Carson City neighbourhoods and along the famous Las Vegas Strip, the Nevada DMV said in a statement. Google’s self-driven cars rely on video cameras, radar sensors, lasers and a database of information collected from manually driven cars to help navigate, according to the company. The DMV licensed a Toyota Prius that Google modified with its experimental driver-less technology, developed by Stanford professor and Google Vice President Sebastian Thrun. Google’s self-driving cars have crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and driven along the picturesque Pacific Coast Highway, the company says. Autonomous vehicles are the “car of the future,” Nevada DMV director Bruce Breslow said in a statement.

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. That’s 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.
