Dipika Pallikal’s private pool leaves Hardik Pandya shocked

Indian cricketers are having a comparatively easy time in the picturesque Caribbean, where they are involved in an ongoing five-match ODI series against the struggling West Indies.

India squash player Dipika Pallikal is accompanying her husband Dinesh Karthik during India’s tour of West Indies. Pallikal is enjoying her time in the West Indies and uploaded a picture of her ‘private pool’.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya asked the Indian squash player that where is the pool located. In her reply to Hardik, Dipika said, “I have a private pool in our villa! Come, I’ll serve you some nimbu Pani [lemonade] also”

India will be taking on West Indies in the fourth ODI at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua on Sunday, July 2. The fifth and final game of the series will be played at the Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica.

So sweet of Dipika, instead of revealing the place, she invited Hardik Pandya for a nimbu paani. Any guesses which place is this?

Rahul Gandhi calls GST half-baked reform, Implementation a “Tamasha”

On the eve of the launch of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), hailed as a revolutionary tax regime by the government, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today said the tax reform has the potential but is being implemented in “a half-baked way with a self-promotional spectacle”.

In a series of Twitter posts with hashtag #GSTTamasha, Rahul said, “A reform that holds great potential is being rushed through in a half-baked way with a self-promotional spectacle #GSTTamasha.”

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi tore into the Centre on Friday saying the Good and Services Tax (GST) “is being executed by an incompetent and insensitive government”. Unlike demonetisation, Rahul said, GST is a reform that the Congress has championed and backed from the beginning. However, “like demonetisation”, the GST rollout is being done “without foresight”, he said.

 

The Congress leader’s reaction on Twitter comes a day after his party, along with the DMK and the Left, decided to skip the midnight launch of GST in Parliament. Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress had earlier said they would give the event a miss. Congress leader Anand Sharma said the GST was conceptualised by the Congress and the BJP stalled it for seven years. “We repeatedly cautioned the government that it is not ‘one-nation one-tax’, neither is it a perfect bill,” Sharma said.

The Congress is boycotting the event on grounds that a taxation reform could not be equated to midnight celebrations of Indian Independence the Central Hall has seen on August 15, 1947, and later, on 50 years of freedom in 1972 followed by the celebration of the Golden jubilee of Independence in 1997.

GST rollout, launch in India, Everything You Should Know

New Delhi: It has been termed a potential game changer, the single biggest tax reform undertaken by India in 70 years of independence, one the government says is founded on the concept of “one nation, one market, one tax.”

The moment, which India has waited for more than a decade, is finally beckoning. On 1 July, a single indirect tax regime will kick into force in Asia’s third largest economy, dismantling inter-state barriers to trade in goods and services.

Tonight, as the clock strikes 12 midnight a gong will sound in Parliament House Central Hall to officially announce GST launch. It will usher in a new era of taxes in India. Yes, the much-awaited Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be applicable from midnight tonight. The GST, a single tax, will replace many state and central taxes and cesses. The GST will replace taxes such as VAT, sales tax, excise tax, luxury tax, entertainment tax, etc. The new tax regime will convert a nation of diverse taxes into a nation of a single tax. This would make India a single market with a uniform tax structure. This would mean that prices of most items will be changed.

 

Senior economist and Niti Aayog member Bibek Debroy said that one of the major problems with the present GST Goods and Services Tax (GST) is its numerous rates structure, IANS revealed. He said that  multiple rates of  GST emerge from desire to tax those items which are considered luxury through the means of indirect tax and not the direct ones. Speaking at the Aaj Tak GST Conclave, the economist said that the multiple rates are coming from the desire to drive other ends through indirect tax policy and other concerns of the state governments.
