Day 1 of GST in Mumbai: Traders still unclear, but business as usual for buyers

The first day of the new tax system in India has witnessed confused merchants and Mumbai Accountants flooded with requests, but it was as usual for buyers.

The Center implemented the goods and services tax (GST) at midnight. The single tax system, known by many as India’s largest tax reform, seeks to unify multiple taxes across the country and stimulate economic growth. But the launch came with its problems.

Traders said they were unaware of the deal. “As it was just the beginning, there was a lot of confusion among traders. We addressed the problem with the government,” said Mohan Gurnani, president, Maharashtra Industry and Commerce (CAMIT).

While hotels and restaurants have switched to the new billing system Friday night, the owners of this new tax has no impact on tread Saturday. “We can feel the impact Monday because it is a weekend,” said Arvind Shetty, owner of Utsav hotel in Juhu.

The wholesale open-knit markets with little fanfare. Places like Mangaldas and Swadeshi market, traders recently went to protest against the GST strike, said the new tax would not help.

“There is a great misfortune among textile traders, as this will affect the health sector,” said Raichand Binakiya, coordinator of the joint action of textile trade. Under the GST, the price of textiles to increase by 8% to 10%.

Stainless steel utensils and markets fell. “There is no sale and even you are confused about this new tax,” said Sunil Parmar, owner of S Kantilal and Sons.
The counters were a bunch of buses Saturday. “Our customers wanted to know how to change the billing model, marketers have complained that their software has not been updated,” said Mukesh Panchal, the owner of an accounting firm.

However, the malls have a good deal, because many of them stayed open until midnight.

The State acknowledged that there was confusion but said it was equipped to deal with the situation. Rajiv Jalota, the Sales Tax Commissioner, which will not be Commissioner GST Maharashtra, said: “We are creating help lines and organizing seminars to make technical and technical details available.”

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis must inform public accountants and distributors at an event organized by the Institute of Public Accountants of India (ICAI) in Matunga Saturday evening.

What is the best way to crack the GATE exam?

To open the door, the most important things are:

You must believe in yourself!
You must have a deep interest in engineering!
You must have a burning desire to get there!
You must understand Hardwork> lucky (or IQ).
The Aptitude Test Engineer Diploma (GATE) is considered one of the most competitive exams after UPSC and JEE in India. It is used as a merit of admission to various master’s programs in ITI and NTI. As there are individual records for each discipline, competition is lower compared to JEE, but still intense as some PSUs (and other companies) recruit on the basis of GATE scores.

Contrary to popular opinion, GATE is a simple test. I see a lot of hype created by people training center and demotivated students who have already failed a lot of students every year. This is a sad thing when you know what the test is designed to really test.

The GATE test only: Are you a good engineer?

If your answer is yes, there is no reason to fear. Otherwise, get ready to work all this year to put the crazy efforts to learn the basics of all the basic courses. For example, for EE they are: Electrical Systems, Electrical Machines, Control Systems, and Analog Circuits, Digital Power Systems, Microprocessors and Microcontrollers, Power Electronics, Mathematics, Engineering, Measuring Instruments and Electromagnetism. All the basic courses and the detailed program are available on the official website of the door.

It is not easy. And the GATE exam is not a joke. But I would say that you appreciate the process, if you focus on the right path: the goal of being a good engineer, and everything will be fine! People just score well in the door (or any other similar test) and loses focus on building technical skills in the process. The results are, of course, disturbing. If you point to a good career in engineering, you should be able to overcome many obstacles that come in the future and the door is just a small step in this journey, dear friend.

Anyway, here are some of the things that should guide you through the preparations:

Of course, all the learning and preparation of undergraduate engineering studies of 4 years weighs a lot to get the right foundations! Therefore, you might have already started preparing their college time without even realizing it.
Students generally prefer high score in each half and most often leaves poor roots each course. For second and third year students, no additional preparation is required. Just learn something beyond “pass their exams” or “score good grades” would be great! If one of the foundations is in place, it is much easier to perform well in the door.
If you are still in college, then do not forget to attend all classes in the first 2 weeks of the beginning of the semester. Because first that most teachers explain the basics and applications of the course offered.
If fundamentals are weak, the day spend an hour or two in the morning to understand the “concepts” or “how things really work” on any topic would be extremely helpful.
Have curiosity pay-off! There are many things they do not teach at university, but you need to know the interest. For example, how many electrical engineers know how a fluorescent lamp converts the stored energy of electrons into lighting?

How many engineers know the correct size of a key is used to change a flat tire with a spare part? How many electronic engineers open their own mobile phones? O How many computer engineers are opening their own lappy and upgrading RAM?
If you have the time and money, you can join the training centers. But hey, first of all, I do not think it takes to score points in this test. And on the other hand, you will write the test not! This is a personal opinion, by the way.
Study your own booklets or books you have already read for the preparation of 50 final semester exams. This saves a lot of time in examining questions.
Do not run behind to remember the formulas. If its concepts are through, you should be able to deduce the necessary formula in case of need. But yes, you need to familiarize yourself with some basic equations.
Ideally, one should start preparing a year in advance to understand the concepts. Detailed preparations can be managed in the last 4 to 6 months.
Tips for testing:

Stay calm. Meditate just before

India-Israel relationship is plateauing. Can PM Modi’ visit change this?

India-Israel relationship is plateauing. Can PM Modi’ visit change this?

Starting tomorrow, July 4, Prime Minister Modi will begin the first visit of an Indian prime minister in Israel. Although the commentary is eloquent about the relationship, it is important for us to have a reality check and we understand the micro-dynamics of marriage.

There are three main components of India’s cooperation with Israel that are supposed to have the potential to “revolutionize” the relationship – water, agriculture and defense.

Given India’s growing water problems and dire predictions of further precipitation decline in the coming decades, India-Israel water cooperation is obviously critical. Israel has gone from a state of water shortage with a large excess of water.

This allowed to see with the pioneers of desalination techniques. Okay, then – why India can not benefit from this? For several reasons. Firstly, desalination plants have the massive terrestrial footprint and bring in huge amounts of energy.

Given the number of problems affecting the acquisition of industrial land in India, there are limits to the amount of land that can be requisitioned for the construction of coastal desalination plants. In addition, the question remains how much energy the energy sector has already discovered that India can save for a desalination plant infrastructure to supplement the water needs of 1.3 billion Indians.

In other words, the water price structure in India is profoundly flawed, with 125 million liters wasted every day, whether for theft, poor piping, poor irrigation practices, high-intensity cropping crops, such as Sugarcane or increasingly informal ecological disaster of eucalyptus.

Then there is the issue of discharging desalination plants – dumping high levels of salt into the oceans – creating chaos in a coastal ecosystem that has been devastated by uncontrolled coastal fishing.

In fact, given the high cost, so that desalination has a realistic sense of India, India will have to solve a number of problems with political burden, including land, electricity, fishing and agriculture, something that no Government can afford to make it realistic.

The second area of ​​cooperation that the future is bright is Israel’s pioneering use of new irrigation techniques and agriculture that drastically reduces water consumption while increasing yield. The duplication of this model in India has several problems again a policy insoluble in nature.

First, the fact that while Israeli drip irrigators are not very expensive, they are not exactly cheap. They are designed for collective farming in Israeli kibbouté style, where purchasing power is significantly higher and crops for commercial purposes.

The land of India are widely used for cultivating land too small subsistence to justify the investment in these drip irrigators. Although they were miraculously to consolidate agriculture in the collective, the problem remains the transport infrastructure; Much of Indian cultures are reflected in transit due to the poor infrastructure of the farm to commercialization (67 million tons per year, the last digit).

Crops are equally important, as they not only offer high prices and like onion culture last year, these staple crops face the classic dilemma of economic poverty amidst plenty.

A particularly ruthless attempt to grow crops of higher added value, such as artichokes and asparagus in Jharkhand, by well-intentioned but clearly German nailed, did not come to anything, since the products can not be shipped in time for any market. Next, we face the challenge of inter-state water treaties.
