first_imgTouch Football Australia would like to attention members to the following community notice centreing around the observance of World Diabetes Day, today Wednesday 14th November 2007.With the passage of the United Nations’ World Diabetes Day Resolution in December 2006, November 14 has now become a United Nations-observed day. The date was chosen because it marks the birthday of Frederick Banting, who, along with Charles Best, is credited with the discovery of insulin. The theme of this year’s World Diabetes Day campaign is Diabetes in Children and Adolescents.Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. It can strike children at any age, including pre-school children and even toddlers. Yet diabetes in children is often diagnosed late, when the child has diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), or it is misdiagnosed completely. The United Nations has shown its commitment to raising awareness of World Diabetes Day and by highlighting the global impact of diabetes.Over 246 million people are living with diabetes. Without concerted action to fight the disease, this figure will reach 380 million within a generation.World Diabetes Day is celebrated worldwide. It brings together millions of people in over 195 countries to raise awareness of diabetes, including children and adults affected by diabetes, healthcare professionals, healthcare decision-makers and the media.

Schools to Have Responsibility for Executing Projects up to $3 Million

first_imgStory Highlights Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says procedures governing the implementation of infrastructure improvement projects at schools are to be revised. Senator Reid said the revision is aimed at decentralising project implementation in order to “drive greater efficiency” in the education system. Speaking at a town hall meeting in Annotto Bay, St. Mary, on Wednesday, (September 20), Senator Reid said this will see schools having responsibility for executing projects valued at up to $3 million, with funds provided by the Ministry. Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says procedures governing the implementation of infrastructure improvement projects at schools are to be revised.Speaking at a town hall meeting in Annotto Bay, St. Mary, on Wednesday, (September 20), Senator Reid said this will see schools having responsibility for executing projects valued at up to $3 million, with funds provided by the Ministry.He indicated that a Service Level Agreement (SLA) will be put in place to facilitate the arrangement.“So, what you are going to find (with these) smaller projects is that the school boards and principals will be required to do the procurement and will be aided by the (Ministry’s) regional offices in the management of those projects,” he outlined.Senator Reid said the regional offices will assist with the procurement process and management of projects valued at more than $3 million and up to $10 million.The offices will also undertake the procurement for projects valued between $10 million and $20 million, while those above $20 million will be spearheaded by the Ministry’s head office.Senator Reid said the revision is aimed at decentralising project implementation in order to “drive greater efficiency” in the education system.“We have over 1,000 schools, and I don’t want to be trying to manage a $3-million project… . I want to give you (school administrations) that responsibility. You are going to be responsible for executing that maintenance project – identifying the contractor, managing (it) and making sure that the projects are done on time (and within budget),” the Minister added.The meeting, which was held at St. Theresa’s Roman Catholic Church, culminated Senator Reid’s visit to several schools in St. Mary comprising the Ministry’s Region Two.Among the institutions visited were Devon Pen Primary School; St. Mary Technical High School; Annotto Bay High School; and Enfield Primary School.last_img read more

Ohio State softball wins final two games to take series vs Purdue

OSU junior Anna Kirk (47) during a game against Penn State on April 6 at Buckeye Field.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorIt was rally time for the Buckeyes this weekend. The Ohio State softball team (29-12-1, 11-5-1) came back from a Friday loss to take the final two games in its home series with Purdue (26-22, 7-10), thanks to a late four-run inning in Sunday’s game.Sunday’s finale broke a Buckeye Field attendance record when 1,627 fans filled the stands to support their Buckeyes. OSU coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly said she was thrilled at the mood the crowd set for her team.“It was so fun, and they were spontaneously starting cheers,” Schoenly said. “It was just great softball energy.”Sophomores Ashley Goodwin and Taylor White threatened the Boilermakers’ defense throughout the weekend. Goodwin, who spent the weekend at first base, went 6-for-9, while White went 4-for-4 with two RBIs on Sunday.Junior Shelby Hursh pitched 12 innings and struck out 14 while earning the save in Saturday afternoon’s contest, and Purdue senior Lilly Fecho was a difficult opponent for the Buckeyes throughout the three games.“She’s one of the best in the country,” Schoenly said of Fecho. “But I think it shows that when you see the same kid for three days, you can hit them.”Game 1The Buckeyes dropped the weekend opener in a windy 3-0 matchup on Friday. For the Boilermakers, a two-run homer with two outs made the difference, helping them secure their lead early on in the first inning.Only three OSU batters had hits throughout the seven innings, as the lineup was thwarted by Fecho. The left-hander, who boasted a 1.97 ERA entering Friday’s game, struck out five in the shutout to nab her 17th win of the season.In the circle for OSU, Hursh continued to be the team’s go-to pitcher, striking out five of her own and only walking one. Hursh threw five innings before freshman Morgan Ray took over on the mound to keep the Boilermakers at three runs.After Purdue freshman Lauren Stewart’s quick home run, the Buckeyes left two runners in scoring position in the bottom of the opening inning. Again in the second, two OSU runners were left stranded after Goodwin’s outfield single.Neither team brought a run across the plate in the second, third or fourth innings, but Purdue lengthened its lead in the top of the fifth on a sacrifice fly from freshman Emily Kenny. Still, the Buckeyes remained uninspired and went down in order in the fifth and sixth innings, giving them a chance to rally in the bottom of the final inning.Junior Anna Kirk and Goodwin produced consecutive singles in the seventh inning but were left stranded at second and third to cut OSU’s hopes at another weekend sweep short.Game 2The sun was out on Saturday as OSU routed Purdue in the Big Ten Saturday contest with a close 3-2 outcome.White remained at the center of controversy in multiple calls throughout the game, including a close tag after she stole third in the third inning and a shallow fly ball, which was caught by senior Mary Gooding but called a dropped ball, in the following inning.“Taylor has been just awesome on the bases, and I wanted her out there causing the havoc she has been,” Schoenly said.In another odd play, junior Lena Springer’s outing in the circle was cut short after she took a sharp line drive to her left wrist.Springer started the game with a six-pitch first inning to shut the first three Purdue batters down. After senior Cammi Prantl kept the first inning alive with an outfield single, freshman Emily Clark stepped up to the plate and sent a ball to right center off the glove of sophomore Maya Hughes to put the Buckeyes on the board first.In the top of the third, miscommunication between sophomore Becca Gavin and Kirk on a bunt left the first two batters for the Boilermakers on base. A sliding catch by Prantl to grab a shallow pop in left field halted the runners, but a single through the gap by junior Kristen Hoppman tied the game at one. Kenny’s line drive drove in another unearned run to send Purdue on top.White got aboard in the bottom of the inning on a single, and redshirt junior Alex Bayne was hit by a pitch. White stole third and was deemed safe, a call that was contested by Purdue coach Kim Schuette. The umpires defended their call, and White stole home minutes later to tie the game back up.Schoenly decided to move batters around this weekend, in a strategy that worked around each batter’s strengths. White led off for the Buckeyes, while redshirt senior shortstop Maddy McIntyre filled in the fifth spot where she could bring more runs in.“They did exactly what they were put in their spots to do, and it all played out the way we wanted it to,” she said.Goodwin led off the Buckeyes’ fourth inning with a solo blast to center field, which prompted Fecho to relieve sophomore Gina Snyder on the mound. This single run was all OSU could manage in the inning, and Hursh took over in the top of the fifth to try and finish the Boilermakers.Gavin zipped a throw to Kirk in the top of the sixth to catch Stewart stealing from second to leave the Buckeyes ahead as “Hang On Sloopy” played over the loudspeakers. In the bottom of the inning, Goodwin recorded her third hit of the day, but Purdue’s offense turned a double play on Kirk’s bunt to clear the bases.Hursh finished off her Saturday outing in the seventh inning with two more strikeouts and earned the save, while Duvall took home the win.Game 3To the delight of a packed stadium, the Buckeyes rallied late in the seventh to score four runs and take the series win by way of a 5-4 victory. McIntyre provided the game-ending hit with a single to right.In the top of the fourth inning, Purdue grabbed an early lead thanks to a pair of two-out walks and a passed ball to bring runners into scoring position. Stewart then stepped up to the plate and sent a long ball off the left-field wall to push the Boilermakers ahead by two.Clark hit a ball that slammed off the top of the center field wall in the bottom of the fourth to record a leadoff triple, but she was left stranded after the three following batters all grounded out.In the following inning, Gavin led off with a big hit of her own, and pinch hitter Bri Betschel brought her to third base on a sacrifice bunt. White continued the hit streak with an RBI single, but two flyouts to center field left OSU still trailing.The Boilermakers lengthened their lead in the top of the sixth when Kenny hit a solo home run with two outs. Hursh continued to struggle to get the last out, and Stewart’s RBI triple sent her back to the bullpen with six strikeouts on the day. Freshman Morgan Ray stepped into the circle to record the third out and leave Stewart stranded.Kirk leapt to catch a high line drive by Purdue freshman Lexi Huffman to take the Buckeyes into the bottom of the seventh. Gavin and Betschel both got aboard on no-out errors, and White bounced a single through the gap to record her second RBI of the day. Bayne stepped up and hit a line drive down the third base line to bring in Betschel.Fecho walked Clark, which brought up McIntyre, who roped a walk-off single to right field to give OSU the weekend win in exciting fashion.Coming upThe Buckeyes are next scheduled to head to Indiana to take on the Hoosiers in another conference series next weekend. The first game of the series is slated to begin at 6 p.m. on Friday. read more

Despite records Illinois ready to compete with Ohio State football

Then-redshirt-junior Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase (2) throws the ball during a game against OSU Nov. 3, 2012, at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 52-22.Credit: Lantern file photoWhile the No. 3-ranked Ohio State football team (9-0, 5-0) has won 21 consecutive games since the start of last season, Illinois (3-6, 0-5) has lost five in a row.Despite the teams moving in opposite directions, Illinois senior linebacker Jonathan Brown said he isn’t going to let OSU walk out of Champaign, Ill., unchallenged.“If you’re not going out there to compete, you’re not going out there to win a game, then there’s no reason to step on the field,” Brown told The Lantern Monday. “It’s what we do every week. We step on the field to compete, and that’s what we’re going to do this weekend.”Competing to win has left the Illini short of actually winning any games since their conference play began this season. The team goes into Saturday’s game needing to win its final three games against OSU, Purdue and Northwestern to become bowl eligible.“We definitely want to get to a bowl game, and get our first Big Ten win, so in order to do that, we got to win three games straight,” redshirt-senior wide receiver Steve Hull said Monday. “The first one is Ohio State, and we just got to prepare and attack this week to go out there and get a win.”OSU ranks fifth nationally with 48.2 average points scored per game and eighth nationally with 17.0 average points allowed per game. Illinois, by contrast, ranks 62nd nationally with 29.7 points scored per game and 105th nationally with 34.7 average points allowed per game.Illinois offensive coordinator Bill Cubit said Monday his team has to step up its game Saturday.“(The matchup’s) not in our favor, so we got to play above and beyond really what we’ve played so far this year,” Cubit said.The expectation that OSU should win, however, does not have to determine the outcome, Hull said.“On paper, I’m sure that everybody’s saying we’re going to be destroyed and going to get our butts whooped, but that’s why we play the game on Saturday,” Hull said.While the win-loss records might show that OSU’s season is going one way and Illinois’ is going the other, Brown does not see it that way.“I wouldn’t say that we’re going in two opposite directions,” Brown said. “They’re progressing as a team. We’re progressing as a team. It’s fun to get out there and compete against another great opponent.”Although the Illini haven’t won a Big Ten game since Tim Beckman’s coaching tenure began, Beckman said his team has improved this season after winning just two games in 2012.“We’re a better football team than we were last year at this time,” Beckman said in Tuesday’s Big Ten teleconference. “I think offensively, what we’ve done in a matter of a year has been unbelievable … Defensively, we’ve lost some players (from last season), there’s no question about that, and some very good players that are playing on Sunday. These players that we’re playing with now have to continue to mature.”Both the offense and defense are looking to improve upon their performances in last year’s 52-22 loss to OSU at Ohio Stadium. The Fighting Illini only mustered 170 yards of offense in that game, while giving up 567 yards to OSU.“If you compare (the Illinois offense) to last year, there’s huge strides, but I don’t compare it to last year, because I wasn’t here,” said Cubit, who is in his first season at Illinois. “We just got to keep on improving and getting ourselves better. It’s going to be real difficult this week, because of the opponent, but that’s college football, you got to go out and play.”One player who is expected to play better than he did last year is redshirt-senior quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, who threw for only 96 passing yards in last year’s game.So far this season, Scheelhaase has completed 65.2 percent of his passes for 2,420 yards and 15 touchdowns — all improvements from his 60.6 completion percentage, 1,361 passing yards and four touchdowns last season — while he has thrown the same number of interceptions, eight, as last year.“He’s improved tremendously,” Cubit said. “He’s really run the system (well) … How he’s handled it and how he’s adapted to it and been a leader out there, that’s been great.”OSU sophomore linebacker Josh Perry also noticed Scheelhaase’s improvement this season.“He’s more of a quarterback than he was last year or the year before,” Perry said Monday. “He’s looking more when he scrambles to throw the ball than take off and run.”OSU coach Urban Meyer said his No. 1 concern for Saturday’s game is “getting to the quarterback.”“(Scheelhaase is) a guy that keeps plays alive even when they break down … that’s what causes problems for defense,” Meyer said during a Monday press conference. “I think we got to pressure him.”As for the offense’s opposition, Beckman said the OSU defense, even considering their success in holding the Illini to just one offensive touchdown last season, is “very, very improved.”“Their front four are playing outstanding,” Beckman said. “Linebackers are very aggressive in making plays, and you see a secondary that also is playing very aggressive.”On the other side of the ball, Illinois will once again be trying to find a way to slow down OSU junior quarterback Braxton Miller, who leads the Buckeyes this season with 1,726 yards of total offense, and senior running back Carlos Hyde, who leads OSU with 701 rushing yards.“We got to tackle in open space,” Beckman said. “We’ve got to leverage the football and be in the proper fit and not overdo what we think’s necessary to make a play because that, in the end, bites you. We just have to play our brand of football and if that’s putting pressure on (Miller) or containing him, I think that’s the game all defenses have to play against something like that offense, you got to try to keep them off track.”Meyer said the Illinois defense, which ranks 116th in the FBS with 482.7 average yards allowed per game, is a difficult unit to characterize, but one he expects to bring pressure Saturday.“It’s all over the place,” Meyer said. “They have good players but they’re just, it’s hard to get a beat on who they are and what they’re trying to do. They’re a very heavy blitz team and I think they’ll blitz us a lot.”OSU is looking to retain possession of Illibuck, the carved wooden turtle that serves as a trophy for the winner of the two teams’ annual rivalry game, as it has since the Buckeyes last fell to the Illini in 2007. But although Brown acknowledged OSU has “some of the top players in the country,” he said his team has no plans to back down.“We’re not going to have any fear going into this game,” Brown said. “We’re going to be ready to play. It’s just a matter of going out there and executing.”Kickoff for Saturday’s game is scheduled for noon at Illinois’ Memorial Stadium. read more

Aaron Craft named finalist for the Bob Cousy Award

OSU won, 63-61.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorOn Pi Day — a day where Ohio State published a video highlighting Aaron Craft’s ability to recite the many digits of the mathematical constant pi — the senior guard received yet another recognition.A testament to his play this season, Craft was named one of six finalists for the 2014 Bob Cousy Award, an honor given to the top point guard in men’s college basketball.According to a press release, the field of six finalists was whittled down from a list of 47 players by the Cousy Award screening committee.Joining Craft, the five other finalists for the award are UCLA sophomore Kyle Anderson, Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis, Connecticut senior Shabazz Napier, North Carolina sophomore Marcus Paige and Wichita State sophomore Fred VanVleet.“It was a tough process to narrow down the list of already exceptional point guards to only six, but these six men deserve to be fighting for the award and recognized as some of the greatest point guards in college basketball,” said Ken Kaufman, chair of the Bob Cousy Award and former president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches.John L. Doleva, president and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame, echoed the sentiments of his colleague, and added that the most difficult decision lies ahead.“The Cousy Award screening committee took on the tough job of choosing from many talented point guards to determine this list of six players who represent the leadership skills that Bob Cousy exhibited,” Doleva said. “Each of these candidates has consistently proven that they are worthy of this prestigious award.”While the screening committee takes plenty of time to select each finalist, Craft said that he doesn’t waste a minute to think about individual accomplishments.“There’s plenty of time to think about that when I’m old and fat and can’t run up and down anymore,” Craft said, regarding his place as a finalist. “The things that are going to be remembered are the things we do as a team. That’s the biggest focus.”Previous winners include many current NBA point guards like former Texas Longhorn D.J. Augustin, former St. Joseph’s Owl Jameer Nelson and the winner of the 2013 Cousy Award, former Michigan Wolverine Trey Burke.According to the release, the winner of the 2014 Cousy Award is scheduled be announced during the Hall of Fame festivities at the 2014 Final Four in Dallas. read more

Republican Party endorses June Cutters 2020 bid for the 77th Assembly District

first_img KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom Posted: April 9, 2019 Republican Party endorses June Cutter’s 2020 bid for the 77th Assembly District SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Republican Party of San Diego County announced its endorsement today of attorney and businesswoman June Cutter in her 2020 bid in the 77th Assembly District against the Republican turned Democrat incumbent Brian Maienschein.The district became a target for the Republican Party after Maienschein announced in January that he had re-registered as a Democrat after being re-elected to a fourth term as a Republican in November, defeating Democrat Sunday Gover by 607 votes.County Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric called the seat a priority and said the party aims to “restore principled and sensible leadership” to the district which includes inland northern San Diego, Poway, Fairbanks Ranch and Rancho Santa Fe.“June’s real-world experience as an attorney and business owner, coupled with her tenacity and unwavering principles, is what makes her a powerhouse,” Krvaric said. “I am confident that she will be an advocate for fiscal responsibility and economic prosperity in Sacramento.”Many of the county’s local and state Republican legislators have announced their endorsement of Cutter since she announced her candidacy last month including Assemblywoman Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, Sen. Brian Jones, R-Santee, San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones and San Diego City Councilman Chris Cate.“When elected, my priority will be to support the common-sense principles that the incumbent has abandoned,” Cutter said. “I will fight to lower taxes, reduce wasteful spending and ensure economic growth in the state of California.” Categories: Local San Diego News, Politics FacebookTwitter April 9, 2019last_img read more

Troopers Release More Details On Fatal Shooting Of Suspect – UPDATE

first_imgThe department said Yakunin on Saturday afternoon had contacted a woman in violation of felony probation conditions. Trooper Luke Kumfer responded and at 7 p.m. reached a home in Nikolaevsk. Troopers have refused to answer other questions about the incident, citing an ongoing department investigation, including whether troopers were wearing body cameras. The Department of Law’s Office of Special Prosecutions and Appeals investigates whether deadly force is justified by officers. The Department of Public Safety reviews the case to determine if an officer using deadly force followed department policy. The name of the officer involved in the shooting, Sgt. Daniel Cox, a 20-year Department of Public Safety veteran, was not released until Tuesday, which is in accordance with agency policy. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Authorities have released additional information about the shooting of a suspect who was killed by an Alaska State Trooper to end a 20-minute assault on another trooper. The release from troopers made no mention of possible weapons Yakunin used or whether other people were at the home. The community of 311 is east of Anchor Point and north of Homer near the south end of the Kenai Peninsula. Authorities said Yakunin refused to cooperate and “become extremely threatening” toward the officer. Kumfer used his radio to call for assistance, fired his stun gun at Yakunin and followed that with pepper spray. When Cox arrived at the home he shot Yakunin, troopers said. Yakunin was pronounced dead at the scene. “For his privacy, we are not releasing details of his injuries,” said trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters by email. Kumfer by Tuesday night had been released from hospital care but was still recovering from injuries. Troopers released no information about any conversation between Cox and Yakunin before the shooting, or whether Kumfer lost consciousness during the assault. The state medical examiner conducted an autopsy on Yakunin’s body, Peters said, but it could take up to two months to receive results. Peters said troopers routinely respond to incidents alone. Asked if Yakunin’s history of violence should have prompted more troopers to respond initially, Peters said that if there was a perceived risk, the situation is reviewed to determine an appropriate way to respond. Details in last weekend’s death of Nikolai Yakunin, 42, in the village of Nikolaevsk, were released on Tuesday. Troopers said Yakunin knocked Kumfer off the home’s porch, injuring the officer. Yakunin then assaulted the injured trooper lying on the ground for about 20 minutes, troopers said. They did not indicate how they knew the assault lasted 20 minutes.

Cleaner sports cars Porsche brings carbonoffset program to the US

first_img 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous More about 2019 Porsche Cayenne Share your voice Enlarge ImageThe Porsche Impact program is run by Swiss carbon-offset company South Pole. Jon Wong/Roadshow If you love driving sports cars but feel guilty about their environmental impact, Porsche has a bit of good news. The automaker is using Earth Day to bring to the US its Porsche Impact carbon-offset program, which can help counter the emissions produced by driving Porsches — and at least hypothetically make all your sporty driving carbon-neutral.Initially the Impact program will cover only a relatively small fleet of cars. For starters, it’ll be applied to all the vehicles in the automaker’s fleets at its Porsche Experience Center facilities in Atlanta and Los Angeles. The centers feature driving-training programs and the chance to sample various Porsche models both on handling courses and off-road tracks. The carbon-offset program will also be offered for Porsche Passport, the company’s subscription service that lets you rent multiple different models for one fixed fee, as well as Porsche Drive, which offers short-term rentals.Porsche Experience Center Los AngelesEnlarge ImageAll this on-track driver training will soon be carbon-neutral. Porsche The idea behind the Impact program is simple. Porsche will use the cars’ mileage to calculate how much carbon dioxide they have emitted into the atmosphere, and then will make corresponding payments to agencies committed to fighting climate change. The idea is to counter all the harm the car’s emissions have done to the environment with projects intended to help the planet.This year, Porsche Impact is expected to cover about 3.5 million miles driven by the 425 cars in its Experience Center, Passport and Drive fleets. After this test run, the intention is to make Porsche Impact available to all US customers. Porsche says that customers can choose between funding “forest protection in the US, hydropower in Vietnam, solar energy in Mexico, and species diversity in Zimbabwe.” The program is already offered for Porsche buyers in Germany, the UK and Poland.US customers will be able to sign their car up for Porsche Impact online, and then will cover the cost of the carbon offsetting based on how many miles they drive. How much does it cost? As an example, Porsche says a 2019 Cayenne S driven for 10,000 miles annually would result in a contribution of anywhere between $67 and $152 per year to the chosen environmental program. It’s a small annual cost to help make the world a better place. “The idea is to give individual customers the tools to take specific steps for themselves, as they see fit,” a Porsche spokesman told Roadshow.

Off to the right near his foot appears to be the Polar Peak beast that is causing destruction on the island this season. More importantly, Jonesy appears to be covering a drawing that’s likely the big event to end Fortnite season 9. Utopia ChallengesAs in previous seasons, Fortnite season 9 has a season-long set of tasks called Utopia Challenges, for Battle Pass owners. Tackling these special challenges requires the completion of all the weekly challenges throughout the season. Fortnite season 9 Utopia ChallengesFortnite season 9 Utopia Challenges Epic Games/Screenshot by CNET What’s different in Fortnite season 9 is that one of the Utopia challenges revolved around Fortbytes.

Budget 2017 Govt dismisses reports about revised income tax slabs

first_imgA government spokesperson has dismissed media reports that the income tax slabs would be revised in Budget 2017.It was reported by a few media houses that the Narendra Modi government would increase income tax slabs to begin at Rs 4 lakh per annum. The current taxable slab begins at Rs 2.5 lakh per annum.The reports said that those in the Rs 4-10 lakh income group may be taxed at 10 percent, while 15 percent tax is likely for the Rs 10-15 lakh income group. And while people in the Rs 15-20 lakh income group may have to pay 20 percent tax, 30 percent tax may be imposed on those having income above Rs 20 lakh.Currently, income up to Rs 2.5 lakh is not taxable. It is 10 percent for income between Rs. 2.5 and Rs 5 lakh, 20 percent for income between Rs 5 and Rs 10 lakh, and 30 percent for income above Rs 10 lakh. However, Frank Noronha, a government spokesperson, said that the reports were “baseless and unfounded”.Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had earlier this month said that the common man would get some relief as direct and indirect tax would be reduced during Budget 2017.The tax let-up for the common man suffering from cash crunch, high tax rate and high inflation could also be announced before the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections to help cement the BJP’s hold in the state.Jaitley had said that while the Reserve Bank of India is working to remonetise the country, not all the notes will be replaced since the government is pushing for digital economy.Prime Minister Narendra Modi also urged people to embrace digital economy since it would stop corruption.”Once they (black money hoarders) are substantially digital, they will get caught in the tax net,” he said. “Therefore, the future taxation level would be much higher than what is currently being collected. This would also enable the government at some stage to make taxes more reasonable which will apply to both direct and indirect taxes.”last_img read more
