Jio Giving Users Free 2GB Data per Day With New Jio Digital Pack

Reliance Jio, the newest operator in the Indian telecom scene, has released a new add-on pack for its prepaid subscribers that gives 2GB of additional daily 4G data over and above the existing Jio pack that the user has subscribed to. Visible in the MyJio app automatically, this add-on pack is currently rolling out for select subscribers, eligibility for which is currently unknown. Also, the Jio digital pack does not come with any additional calling or SMS benefits, which will remain same as the one offered in the existing base pack. A Jio representative confirmed to Gadgets 360 that add-on is valid only until July 31, 2018.

With the Digital Pack active, if a Jio user is availing the Rs. 399 prepaid pack which offers 1.5GB 4G data per day, for 84 days, then the they will get a total of 3.5GB 4G data per day. However, considering the validity of the pack is only up to July 31, it is rendered mostly unusable. Comments on a report by Telecom Talk however say that the pack will expire on August 2 for some users, not July 31.

Earlier this month, Reliance Jio rolled out its Jio Phone Monsoon Hungama offer as part of which users can exchange their existing features phones and purchase the Jio Phone at a price of just Rs. 501, which is also a full refundable security deposit. However, six months worth recharge of the custom Rs. 99 prepaid pack is required to avail this deal. The exchange offer, thus, mandates a payment of Rs. 1,095 (Rs. 501 + Rs. 594) to be able to purchase the Jio Phone. To recall, the new Rs. 99 Jio Phone recharge comes with 0.5GB 4G data per day, unlimited voice calls, and 300 SMS messages, with a validity of 28 days.

BSNL offers ‘most economic’ broadband plan with 20GB data per day at Rs 491

The state-owned telecommunication company, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), took to Twitter to roll out the self-professed ‘most economic broadband’ plan in the country at Rs 491. It will offer 20GB data per day for 30 days at 20 Mbps. Subscribers will also gain access to unlimited voice calls to any network. NK Mehta, a member on BSNL’s board, said, “BSNL is committed to offer high quality, most affordable and data services which meets everyone’s expectations.” BSNL’s plan 491 is already available across their customer service centers, franchises, and retailers.

Addressing Reliance Industries 41st Annual General Meeting, today, Isha Ambani, daughter of Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries, announced the launch of Jio GigaFiber, its optical fiber-based broadband service. It will be rolled out in 1,100 cities of India on 15th August and will provide broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

Since the introduction of Reliance Jio two years ago, the nation has witnessed an ongoing tariff war between major mobile carriers. Idea and Vodafone have also initiated a merger to take on the competition from incumbents. Now, with Jio entering the broadband space, the war might shift from mobile to broadband segment; and BSNL, with its latest offerings, might possibly be playing a forehand to stay ahead in the game.

 In June, BSNL introduced two new FTTH (Fiber to the Home) plans at Rs 777 and Rs 1,277. The Rs 777 plan offers 500 GB monthly data at 50 Mbps, while the Rs 1277 plan offers 750 GB monthly data at 100 Mbps.

Despite BSNL and Bharti Airtel being the current leaders in India’s broadband market, they face angst about their customers switching to JioGigaFiber once it is made commercially available. This might not be an unjust supposition, given Jio’s track record of disrupting markets.

Understanding Your EPF Contributions: Benefits, Interest Rate, Details

Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) deposits are deducted every month from the salary of working people. Employees’ Provident Fund is a mandatory contribution from the salary of an individual that every company which has more than 20 employees has to deduct. EPF accounts are overseen by the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), which is under the Ministry of Labour & Employment. EPF contributions are shared equally between employees and employer. Thus, both employee and employer contribute equally towards EPF, which is thus shown as a deduction in the cost-to-company or salary structure of an employee.

Here are 10 things to know about Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) contributions:
1) An employee contributes 12 per cent of his salary towards EPF while an employer pays 12 per cent, out of which 8.33 per cent is invested in Employee’s Pension Scheme (EPS) while the balance 3.67 per cent is invested in EPF. EPS is also run by the EPFO.

2) EPF allows for accumulation of money with interest, which can be claimed upon retirement, resignation and death.

3) Partial withdrawals from EPF accounts are allowed for specific expenses such as house construction, higher education, marriage, illness.

4) The current interest rate on EPF contributions has been fixed by the EPFO at 8.55 per cent with effect from April 1, 2018.

5) Contributions under EPF are payable on maximum wage ceiling of Rs. 15,000 by employee and employer.

6) The employee can pay at a higher rate and in such case an employer is not under any obligation to pay at a higher rate, according to epfindia.gov.in.

7) A Universal Account number or UAN is generated for each EPF contributor. UAN acts as an umbrella for multiple member IDs allotted to the same individual by different establishments.

8) An EPFO member is required to be registered on member portal to file the transfer claimonline. The detailed process flow for the registration is available at the link available on the homepage of EPFO website www.epfindia.gov.in.

9) Seeded Aadhaar against activated UAN is mandatory for online EPF claim submission.

10) EPFO services are now available on the UMANG (Unified Mobile APP for New Governance). The UMANG APP can be downloaded by giving a missed call 9718397183. The APP can also be downloaded from UMANG website or from the play/app stores.

App-based cabs pose threat to KSRTC

BENGALURU: After BMTC, it’s now the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) that is seeing stiff competition from app-based cab aggregators. With Ola’s outstation services gaining popularity, people travelling in groups are shifting from KSRTC bus services.

For instance, Ola outstation service offers AC cabs at Rs 9 per km, which works out cheaper than taking a bus for a group of four. It also offers a ride within an hour of booking or up to seven days in advance. According to Ola, destinations like Nandi Hills, Coorg and Mysuru are among the most preferred with people in the city. It is also operating to destinations like Mangaluru, Wayanad, Coimbatore and Chennai.

Several self-drive car services like Zoomcar and Revv and carpooling services like BlaBlaCar are also operating along intercity routes, further eating into KSRTC’s revenue.

In fact, KSRTC has incurred a loss of Rs 177 crore during 2016-17, the highest in a decade due to various reasons like parallel operation of services, salary revision of employees and fuel price rise.In 2015-16, KSRTC had recorded a profit of Rs 50.95 crore.

KSRTC managing director S R Umashankar said: “We have to study their operations to tackle the threat from app-based intercity services.”

“The biggest advantage of Ola outstation services is the doorstep pick-up and availability of cabs even during weekends and during the holiday season. It also helps us book a cab at our convenient time,” said Subida S, a regular user.

Popular with drivers too

Some cab drivers say they prefer inter-city rides than city trips. “Most outstation services are during weekends and pass through highways. It’s difficult to drive in the city due to heavy traffic. So, I accept inter-city bookings. I also get better incentives for outstation services,” said Nagakunte, an Ola driver.

The Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC) too has tied up with Ola to provide tour packages for Nandi Hills, Mysuru, Ooty , Hampi and Madikeri.

However, KSRTC’s plan to introduce a direct special AC bus service to Nandi Hills from Bengaluru on weekends starting at 4am remains on paper.

Here’s how to link your mobile number with Aadhaar to avoid deactivation

The government had announced that all mobile subscribers, including those having pre-paid SIM cards, to have their phone number linked to Aadhaar without fail. There are over 100 crore mobile subscribers in India.

The Supreme Court had directed Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government on February 6, 2017, to register details of identity of every mobile user within a year. The court also directed the Centre to device a way so that each person with a pre-paid sim would have to fill and deposit a form whenever he or she recharges.

As per sources, all unlinked mobile phone numbers will be deactivated after February 2018. They said biometrics collected should be encrypted by the telecom company and sent to UIDAI at that moment itself and any storage of biometric by a service provider is a criminal offence punishable with up to three years’ imprisonment under the Aadhaar Act 2016.

Bill seeking H-1B limits exemption for US PhD holders introduced

WASHINGTON: A bill has been re-introduced in the House of Representatives that seeks exemption for foreign- born persons with an American Ph.D. in science, technology, engineering or mathematics from the limits on the number of employment-based green cards and H-1B visas awarded annually.
Introduced by Congressmen Erik Paulsen and Mike Quigley, the Stopping Trained in America Ph.Ds from Leaving the Economy (STAPLE) Act, is likely to benefit Indians given that they constitute the largest number of students doing PhD in the US.

“It is no surprise that the brightest minds from around the world come to the United States to pursue their advanced degrees, and we should be doing all we can to ensure students we educate and train here use what they’ve learned to contribute to the American economy,” said Congressman Erik Paulsen.

“With thousands of high-skilled jobs going unfilled, the STAPLE Act makes sure American companies are getting the talent they need. By stapling a green card or (a) visa to their diplomas, these professionals can invent and innovate new discoveries that grow our economy,” Paulsen said.

Quigley, in his remarks, said if the US was serious about fostering innovation, spurring economic activity, and staying competitive in the global marketplace, it must encourage the brightest minds in the world to study, work, and stay in its communities.

“We cannot advance our technology or research if we continue sending foreign-born, but US educated, students with advanced degrees away,” he said.

Noting that the H-1B visas are subject to annual caps that are woefully short of the number necessary to fill high- skilled jobs, the two lawmakers in a statement said numerous studies have found that H-1B visas correspond with an increase in jobs for native citizens.

For example, a 2011 American Enterprise Institute study found that “an additional 100 foreign-born workers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) fields with advanced degrees from US universities is associated with an additional 262 jobs among US natives,” they said.

Last month, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order for tightening the rules of the H-1B visa programme to stop “visa abuses”.

Trump said his administration is going to enforce ‘Hire American’ rules that are designed to protect jobs and wages of workers in the US.
The executive order also called upon the Departments of Labour, Justice, Homeland Security, and State to take action against fraud and abuse of our visa programmes.

GST: Government wants your mobile bills to go down

KOLKATA: The government on Friday asked phone companies to cut prices of telecom services by rejigging costs to factor in the benefits of increased tax credits under GST.
“Telecom companies are required to re-work their costing and credits availability, and rejig their prices and ensure the increased availability of credit is passed on to customers,” the finance ministry said in an official statement.

According to the ministry, the additional input tax credits (ITCs) that the telcos would enjoy under the goods and services tax regime would be “as much as 2% of the turnover of the telecoms industry”.

Telcos, it said, would clearly benefit under GST. “At present, they are neither eligible for credit of VAT paid on goods nor of special additional duty (SAD) paid on imported goods equipment, but under GST, they would avail of integrated GST (IGST) paid on domestically procured goods as also imported goods,” the finance ministry said.

Mobile carriers, however, disputed the government’s observations, asserting that the increase in GST rate for telecom services to 18% from 15%, is far more than the effective rise in tax credits. Such a scenario, they said, would see postpaid users shelling out 2-3% more on their monthly phone bills, while prepaid users would see a reduction in their talk-times once GST kicks in.

“The notion that the increase in the (GST) rate of 3% is by and large getting compensated by a reduction of cascading tax costs (on account of the fact that state VAT, entry taxes and SAD on procurements have been subsumed) is misconceived. The total quantum of benefit accruing to telecom companies on account of reduction in cascading taxes is on an average merely around 0.7-1% of revenues,” said Rajan Mathews, director general of Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), which represents Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Idea Cellular and new entrant, Reliance Jio Infocomm.

This, he said, is since “bulk of the tax costs incurred by telcos for procurement of goods is central sales tax (CST) which is at the rate of 2% against C forms and entry tax is applicable only in selective states”.

According to Mathews, the value of such procurements is in single digits as compared to revenues. Furthermore, a number of key inputs such as diesel, electricity duty etc.that are consumed by telecom companies continue to be outside the GST regime, which is why, the tele com sector would continue to reel under significant cascading taxes even under the GST regime.

A tax expert at a Big Four consulting firm backed the view, saying the total benefit by way of increased tax credits to most telcos is unlikely to exceed 0.5% of revenues as against increase in the tax rate by 3%, which would compel telcos to raise call charges and data rates, post-July.

Mathews had recently said a higher GST rate of 18% would make services more expensive and further stress an already bleeding sector.

The finance ministry, however, maintained that telcos would enjoy the benefits of full input tax credits (ITCs) under the GST regime, which they do not currently enjoy.

From July, “telecom services will attract 18% GST, which is a pure value added tax (VAT) as full ITCs of inputs and input services used in the course or furtherance of business by the telecom service providers would be available,” said the ministry. Further, it said, telcos can also avail of input tax credits of service tax paid on assignment of spectrum by the government in calender 2016 for a period of three years.

According to the government, since the entire credit can be taken in the same year under GST regime, the balance two-third credit of the previous year would be admissible in the current financial year itself “.

Such multiple incentives, it said, would hugely benefit telcos, in that, their liabilities to pay GST through cash would stand reduced to about 87% of what they paid last fiscal.

 But Mathews said “it would not be correct to state that perceived benefit of taking credit in the same year instead of over 3 years had reduced the cost of telecom companies, given the miniscule amount of interest benefit that would actually come out of it over the current quantum of input tax credit.”
