4000 Km Long Great ‘Green Wall’ Of India Planned By The Government

A 5km long and 1400km wide green belt to be built from Gujarat to the border of DelhiHaryana. The plan is yet to be executed and the officials are enthusiastic about implementing it in order to overcome land degradation. In the conference COP14 of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification in India, this plan was discussed. This plan is still awaiting financial clearance. By 2030, India intends to restore 26 million hectares of land that is degraded. About a decade back, this plan was discussed, however, it couldn’t be implemented as several other countries would be involved in it. At this point in time, it is India’s priority to make this plan turn into reality. In 2016, the ISRO had studied about which places in India have the most degraded land and the study concluded that Delhi, Rajasthan, and Gujarat has 50 percent of degraded land.

Highlights Of The Plan >

The officials foresee that implementing this plan will benefit us in two ways. It will repair the degraded land through afforestation and will safeguard cities from dust that comes in through deserts.

>

This green belt from Porbandar to Panipat will help regions such as Rajasthan, Haryana, Gujarat, and New Delhi. This green belt will cover the Aravali regions.

>

All the dust coming from the Thar Desert will be controlled by the green belt.

>

Afforestation will be encouraged after checking desertification.

>

For now, all the details have been collected, the plan is yet to be executed.

>

This would be one of India’s legacy program when the plan is implemented to improve all the degraded lands.

NRI IMMIGRATION

Trump Administration’s Move to

End Work Permits for H-1B Spouses to Go Through in Spring 2020 Donald Trump administration’s proposal to terminate the rights of H-4 visa holders, i.e. the spouses of H-1B visa holders, may not be put into effect until next year giving a little relief to Indians working in the United States.

14

But then, the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) told court that it has set a time frame of Spring 2020 (between March and June next year) to bring in rules to revoke the H-4 Employment Authorization Document (EAD), awarded to the spouses of H-1B visa holders, 90 percent of which are high-skilled female professionals employed in the United States. The Department of Justice told the District of Columbia Circuit, in Washington, D.C. that previously indicated, DHS’ (Department of Homeland Security’s) intention to proceed with the publication of the H-4 EAD proposed rule remains unchanged and the proposed rule is currently undergoing the inter-agency process. The number of H-1B visas issued to immigrants every year has abruptly dropped down due to tight watch on the immigration rules across the board.

WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019


Former President Barack Obama during his tenure issued the eligibility for employment authorization to H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B visa holders in 2015 and first proposed in 2011. Under this rule, the spouses of H-1B workers were permitted to employment, where their high demand skills would be required so that they could lead a life in the country and promote the innovation and growth of U.S. companies at the same time. President Donald Trump, who signed Buy American and Hire American Executive Order in 2017, removed the rights of H4 visa holders and declared them as a category of immigrants taking advantages of employment opportunities that could otherwise be beneficial for Americans. The managing attorney at law firm Immigration.com Rajiv S Khanna

https://economictimes. indiatimes.com/nri/visa-andimmigration/reprieve-forspouses-of-h-1b-visa-holders/ articleshow/71176908.cms said the delay is not the core issue. He said when you are bringing in a new regulation or deregulation, there has to be some reasonable basis in fact and circumstance. He questioned how do you justify taking away an entire cadre of highly qualified, highly motivated people from the workforce when unemployment levels are below 4%? According to a study by the South Asian American Policy & Research Institute, the ability of United States companies to pull in and retain skilled workers would be impacted if the country starts revoking the H-4 EAD visa.

The move will have a major impact on Indian women, as they comprise up to 90 percent of the 1.2 lakh H4 visas issued since 2015. The Trump government believes the move would give American workers a better chance at obtaining jobs that the population of H-4 workers currently hold. The Chief Executive Officer of EB5 BRICS, Vivek Tandon, warned that postponing the proposed ban to next year only offers minor relief . He said spouses of H-1B holders still don’t have any clarity on EAD status. Already employers in the United States are likely to avoid hiring H-4 visa holders until a final decision is taken. Khanna said the rhetoric against immigrants would not end until there is a change in the perception that foreign workers are taking away local jobs. The move will have a massive impact on some of the tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Apple, which rely heavily on H1B immigrants. According to these tech firms, the move would affect them in a negative way given the hightech skills required and it is extremely challenging for them to find people with like-skilled U.S. individuals, reflecting the same high-tech skills.

2015 by then British Prime Minister David Cameron and the late Arun Jaitley, then Finance Minister of India. In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the UK paid his respects at the statue in the heart of London.

The scholarships under the Trust would go towards supporting the Indian students financially in their educational journey at the esteemed London-based educational institution, with which Desai has a long association as an economist. Trustee Lady Kishwar Desai said in a statement that it is the seed money which would be then added to by others so that a large corpus would be built up in time. She also said this move would enable well deserved Indian students to study at the LSE and has been welcomed by the Director of the LSE, Minouche Shafik. Shafik said the scholarships are reflective of the London School of Economic’s very strong connection with India.

Government Mulls High-Level Plan to

Study Merger of NRI & FPI Routes The Indian government is planning to appoint a high-level committee to analyze merging the Non-Residential Indian (NRI) and foreign portfolio investor routes, according to the sources. WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019


investments can’t. As per RBI data, this could hamper a merger since NRE accounts hold deposits of about $93 billion ( Rs 7 lakh crore). The merger was recommended by a committee set up by Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in September 2018. The proposed government panel will include officials from Reserve Bank of India, Department of Economic Affairs (DEA) and SEBI. The panel would explore whether NRIs can be given freedom of action in terms of compliance as the regime by FPI is devised for institutional investors while the former are typically individuals. As per government feedback, the average ticket size of NRI investment in equities is much lesser than that of FPIs, therefore the risk management and compliance requirements should be less. According to sources, the committee will come up with a thought as to how the merger of both routes can take place without impacting NRE deposits. In addition, the option for the non-resident Indians to make savings deposits should be kept broad even though they turn into FPIs, as it is a good source of dollar inflows. In the July budget, Finance Minister of India Nirmala Sitharaman had announced that the investment avenues would be merged to give non-resident Indians smooth and continuous access to Indian equities. The Reserve Bank of India put across concerns over a merger owing to lack of certainty what would happen to deposits held by NRIs through non-resident external accounts. At present, non-resident Indians can open rupee-denominated NRE accounts for fixed and savings deposits while foreign portfolio

As of now, NRIs invest in stocks without any intimidatory through Portfolio Investment Schemes (PIS). Suppose NRIs become FPIs, they will have to create a corporate entity or a trust and invest through that. Tejesh Chitlangi, partner, IC Universal Legal was quoted as saying by Economic Times that the compliance burden on NRIs will go up if their portfolio investment regime is merged with the FPI route. As an alternative of shutting down the NRI portfolio

investment route entirely, the government should go on with the route and at the same time permit NRIs to have majority possession in FPIs, which come with investment restrictions. The NRI regime renders greater flexibility. For example, while FPIs can only put money in listed securities, NRIs can do so in savings and other financial instruments, as well as fixed deposits. Besides, NRIs wishing to invest in equity can purchase straightaway through the PIS route while FPIs typically have to come through custodian brokers. The plan to merge was adopted by the government following response received from a number of NRI fund managers who were incapable to get underway FPI vehicles owing to the possession restrictions. Permitting NRIs as FPIs would provide a WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019

level playing field for all offshore investors, whether NRI or not. SEBI first took up the issue in the year 2018 after NRI investors expressed opposition to caps on their involvement in FPIs. In April 2018, the regulator had issued a circular clearing the air that NRIs cannot be in control of FPIs. It further said NRIs could solely act as investment advisers to FPIs, meaning they would not be able to invest any of their own money in the FPI vehicle. One of these days, the regulator referred the issue to the HR Khanled committee on alleviating FPI norms. In its September 2018 report, the panel recommended merging the two routes. But then, since carrying out of the proposal would ask changes to the RBI and income tax laws, the regulator passed the concern on to the authorities.

E-Cigarette Sales The Indian government has imposed a ban on the manufacture and sale of e-cigarettes in the country after a series of deaths were found to related to vaping. The executive order prohibits selling, producing, importing, or giving publicity to e-cigarettes through advertising. WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019


Finance Minister of India Nirmala Sitharaman declaring the ban said they were also listed as non-cognizable offenses. As per the draft ordinance, violations would cost up to Rs 1 lakh, serving one-year jail term or both.

A spokesperson from India’s health ministry said these novel products like e-cigarettes come in market with attractive appearances and multiple flavors and their use has accrued exponentially and acquired epidemic proportions in developed countries, particularly among youth and children.

Amit Shah Blames Jawaharlal Nehru for Existence of PoK Union Home Minister Amit Shah blaming former prime minister late Jawaharlal Nehru for the Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) said it would not have come into being if Nehru has not declared an untimely ceasefire with the neighboring country.

WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019


Aiming at Nehru over nonintegration of Kashmir with India, Shah said the country’s first home minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, should have looked after the issue, in lieu of the then prime minister. While giving a talk to a rally in Mumbai on the Center’s decision to revoke Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and to campaign for the Bharatiya Janata Party for the next month’s Maharashtra Assembly elections, Shah said the Congress sees politics behind abrogation of Article 370 but we don’t see it that way. The PoK wouldn’t have come into existence had Nehru not declared an untimely ceasefire with Pakistan...Sardar Patel should have handled Kashmir, instead of Nehru handling it, he said. Not even a single bullet has been fired in Kashmir following the revocation of special status to Jammu and Kashmir, he added. The senior BJP leader said there was no turmoil in valley state and the future days, terrorism will be at the end. Shah said three dynasties (without taking any names) which presided over Kashmir didn’t let the anti-corruption agency to be established there. Those who indulged in corruption in Kashmir now are feeling the heat despite the cold there, he said in remarks adorned with sarcasm.

He asked Indian National Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and National Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar to let know people whether they be on the side of or be against removal of Article 370.

also expressed confidence that Devendra Fadnavis will once again be the chief minister of Maharashtra after the state elections slated to take place next month. The state Assembly elections will be held in a single phase on October 21 and results will be announced on October 24.

Greta Thunberg Gives Power Speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit The 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg speaking at the United Nations Climate Change Summit in New York on September 23 stormed at the world leaders accusing them of inaction and half-measures. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you! For more than 30 years, the science has been crystal clear. How dare you continue to look away and come here saying that you’re doing enough when the politics and solutions needed are still nowhere in sight.

Here is her complete speech: My message is that we’ll be watching you.

You say you hear us and that you understand the urgency, but no matter how sad and angry I am, I do not want to believe that. Because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act then you would be evil and that I refuse to believe.

This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet, you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you!

The popular idea of cutting our emissions in half in 10 years only gives us a 50 percent chance of staying below 1.5 degrees and the risk of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control.

You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying.

They also rely on my generation sucking hundreds of billions of tons of your CO2 out of the air with technologies that barely exist. So a 50 percent risk is simply not acceptable to us, we who have to live with the consequences. How dare you pretend that this can be solved with just business as usual and some technical solutions? With today’s emissions levels, that remaining CO2 budget will be entirely gone within less than eight and a half years. There will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures here today, because these numbers are too uncomfortable and you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is. You are failing us, but the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you and if you choose to fail us, I say: We will never forgive you.

Life’s Amazing Secrets Stop going through life, start growing through life! -By Gaur Gopal Das We have all been in situations where our intellect is clouded by our emotions. At those times, we say anything and everything for our own peace of mind. Although a moment of patience in a moment of anger can save us a thousand moments of regret in the future, usually when we are suffering intensely, we cannot help but let our minds run amok. For our own growth, we should maintain equipoise in testing times. When someone hurts us, we should try to look beyond the

situation and think: ‘How are they suffering? What are they feeling, to say such a thing? Is there some deeper chaos that is occurring in their life for them to say these words to me?’ It’s not about supporting the hurtful comments made by others - it is about seeing what they are going through to be making them. This is empathy, an essential component of forgiveness. It is said, ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me’. This could not be further from the truth. Physical violence is inflicted with weapons, but emotional violence is inflicted with words; words can leave invisible scars that can take years, or even lifetimes, to heal.

Let me take your mind back to Nepal, to the foothills of the Himalayas and to the story of my closest friend who had spoken harshly to me in front of our community members. The reason I had to go to Ukraine was to help inspire the bhakti society there, but my passport was stuck at the Ukrainian embassy in New Delhi. My friend’s lashing out at me had left me feeling humiliated and I had returned to my room, distraught. What happened in my room thereafter is relevant here - I was able to move from anger to forgiveness because I remembered to separate the episode from the person. Of course, I must

SPIRITUAL TALK mention that this principle is not applicable in all situations - especially those of social justice, which I will discuss later - but in our personal interactions, for the most part, it works wonders. Everyone is going through challenges concealed from the public eye, and we need the lens of empathy to be able to see that.

When I fail at something - whether it’s an exam or a relationship - I may think that I am a failure. But just because I failed one time or even more than once in my life, does that really make the whole of me a failure? Similarly, just because someone may, on a rare occasion, have failed us, should we treat that person as a failure? Should we not see that lapse as an independent event? Everyone is going through challenges concealed from the public eye, and we need the lens of empathy to be able to see that. This is not to say that we should tolerate abuse or not do the sensible thing and correct someone when they are wrong, but in order to practice forgiveness, we have to learn to separate the incident from the person. Disconnecting the person from the problem starts with the language we use to describe the incident: l Saying ‘it is my problem’ causes us to feel guilty, and over time, one may develop an inferiority complex. We may begin to think that we are not tough enough to deal with situations and thus we may become morose over issues. • Saying ‘it is your problem’ causes us to feel angry. How many times have we pointed our index finger at someone and

WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019

used the words, ‘It’s your problem, not mine.’ I have never seen anyone say those words in a peaceful state of mind. Blaming the other person only leads to a spiral of anger. • Saying ‘it is the problem’ separates the problem from the persons involved. Not only does this separation empower us to forgive the person, but it also helps us to effectively deal with the problem.

Reason Why Indians Are Sending Record Amount of Cash Abroad A report by the Indian Express recently says that resident Indians have sent the most amount of money abroad or to foreign countries under the Liberalized Remittance Scheme (LRS) on a monthly basis in July 2019. According to the Reserve Bank of India, a whopping amount of $1.69 billion has left the country in September alone. While outward remittances within the first four months of Fiscal Year 2020 under this scheme has touched $5.80 billion.

WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019


The aforementioned figure is an abrupt increase of the aggregate outward remittances of $5.45 billion seen during the five-year United Progressive Alliance II period between April 2009 and March 2014. From the time Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance came to power in May 2014, the overall outflow of remittances has come up to a total of more than $45 billion.

Liberalized Remittance Scheme (LRS) Liberalized Remittance Scheme was first introduced on February 4, 2004, that allows resident Indians to transfer up to $250,000 per financial year (AprilMarch) towards a range of allowable current or capital account transactions, or a combination of both.

Outward Remittances Under the Liberalized Remittance Scheme, Reserve Bank of India allows the outflow of remittances under categories that include travel, maintenance of close relatives overseas, education and gifts. Other categories, which hold only a little portion of such remittances include the acquisition of immovable property and overseas investment in equity and debt.

The Rise in Outward Remittances There are a number of reasons behind the rise in the outflow of remittances. According to The Economic Times, doubling of the limit places on outward remittances in 2015 by the RBI to $250,000, up from $125,000 could be one possible reason. This ultimately intends that resident Indians were looking to remit more money than the $125,000 limit but had to turn to some other ways before the 2015 increase in the LRS limit. According to The Wire, the experts sat that the rise in outflow under the LRS scheme could be indicative of a flight of capital, as the small and midsized business community is looking to shift and set up shop outside the country, in places like Singapore and Dubai. Morgan Stanley’s chief global strategist Ruchir Sharma observed that in the year 2017 alone, 2.1 percent of

India’s affluent left the country, a fact that corresponds to the increasing movement of funds in the form of remittances outside the country. However, economic experts say that the increase could also mean that such businessmen were looking to diversify their operation bases instead of hoping to leave the country. According to the report by the Indian Express, the increase in the taxation rate from around 35 percent to 43 percent could be an additional trigger. A market expert was quoted saying following the rise in taxes, well-off resident Indians to a great extent would see a greater benefit in paying high taxes in exchange for a higher quality of life, which could explain the rise in outward remittances.

Tip 5 - Be Friends With Nature While it might sound philosophical to connect with nature so that you can develop an innovative mind, it is true that it helps you feel rejuvenated and works as a mental detoxifying agent.

Ready to spend time with nature?

Tip 6 - Carry Along Your Observation Skills 62

If you want to be a god innovator you need to be a keen observer. You need not break your head with noting everything in your memory box. However, just be a spectator to the little things around you. At the moment you must be looking at being innovative so that you can do well at work. Thus, observe details such as what, why, how and analyze what best to do with all you know. This should help with putting your observation skills to use so that it gets easier to innovate.

Tip 7 - Be Open To Suggestions And Feedback When you get into the groove of being innovative, you need to be open to suggestions and feedback. It doesn’t imply to criticize your innovation but helps you be a better innovator and thinker. WWW.NRINEWSTODAY.COM | OCTOBER 2019

Tip 8 - Collect All Your Ideas When an idea comes to your mind, collect it by putting it on paper or saving it on your notepad. By doing this you are not letting your idea flee away and later on it becomes easy for you to assess what best you can do to make the innovative thought work out.

Tip 9 - Tune Your Moods While none of us can have a stable mood, it is tough to keep up with a good mood always. It can be challenging to fight against negative emotions and other insecurities at times. Thus, always try and tune your mood when you feel lost and demotivated to keep up with creative thoughts. Listen to music, go for a walk, take a nap or watch a hilarious video. Get back when you are all tuned to think creatively.

Tip 10 - Believe In Yourself If you want to achieve being innovative you need to believe and be sure about your thought. Having said, you will always get stuck with being innovative. However, you need to break through the limited thought process and know for a fact that you will keep trying no matter what. In conclusion, to be creative, you need to have faith in yourself and stop focusing on reaching a destination to stop, but, find your ways to do your best in creating what you believe in.

As soon as the digital signature certificate is acquired, DIN can be obtained for the foreign national or NRI and he/she may be added to the Board of Directors during incorporation.

3

The Incorporation of a company procedure with NRIs, foreign national or foreign entities is similar to that of incorporation of a private limited company with Indian Directors and Indian Shareholders. The submission of foreign identity proof, address proof and other documents of foreign origin is one of the additional steps to be followed while incorporating a company with NRIs or Foreign Entities. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, India is an outstanding destination for starting a new business and numerous business opportunities for persons and business of all size and vision.

Story : War is the story of Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) who works for Indian Intelligence. He commits a series of crimes after which his student Khalid (Tiger Shroff) takes the responsibility to trace Kabir and the reason behind Kabir's crimes. The rest of War is all about the unexpected twists and how Kabir stages a massive search operation for the most wanted criminal and Khalid's contribution in this operation. Watch War to know about the rest.

Analysis :

110

War opens on an interesting note but the film finds different paths and the plot gets deviated completely. Hrithik and Tiger Shroff steals the show with their packed performances and terrific screen presence. The action stunts have been top notch and the makers spent lavishly on the film. With an interesting interval bang, the first half of War looks decent and will not disappoint the audience. The second half of War is a mixed bag and has enough flaws. Once again the action episodes, lavish visuals and the grand production values are the major highlights of the film. The film's track gets deviated once again and the narration gets side tracked. Vaani Kapoor sizzles in her limited role and the song has been canned well. The climax has been dragged and it looks unusual. On the whole, the second half of War is a

Final Word: Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff tops the show in this high voltage action thriller which lacks an engaging script and interesting narration.

Analysis : Syeraa starts on a slow note which narrates about the core plot of the film that is set in Rayalaseema region. The film takes pace slowly and catches the fuel before the preinterval. The action stunts are canned well and the interval episodes are the major highlight of Syeraa. Megastar roars loud with his packed performance in the movie. The technical aspects along with the VFX and the grand production values are the major highlights of the film. On the whole, the first half ends on a decent note and leaves good expectations on the film. The second half of Syeraa lives up the expectations and the action stunts are the major highlights of the film. The emotional drama looks well connected and the screenplay along with Megastar's packed performance is the major highlight of Syeraa. The climax episodes are a treat and they will stand out and will appeal to all the sections of audience. The production values make the film look lavish.

Final Word: Megastar Chiranjeevi roars loud with his packed performance in Syeraa which is a visual treat. Laced with all the needed ingredients, Syeraa should not be missed.
