Jaggery and its Benefits!

Jaggery is one of the most common ingredients found in Indian kitchens. Apart from being one of the best natural sweeteners, it also offers a plethora of health benefits. It is good for your cardiac health, digestion, improved metabolism, blood circulation, respiratory system, menstrual cramp or pains, sexual potency and stronger immunity. About 70-80% of the world’s Jaggery production takes place in India, where it is commonly called gur/gud. It is primarily made from Sugarcane but nowadays it can be made from coconut sap and date palm as well.

How is Jaggery Made?

Jaggery is made by first extracting juice from Sugarcane. The canes or palms are pressed to extract the sweet juice or sap. The juice is then allowed to stand in big containers so that any sediment settles to the bottom. It is then strained to produce a clear liquid.

The juice is then concentrated by placing in a very large, flat-bottomed pan and boiled. During this process, the Jaggery is stirred and the impurities are skimmed off the top until only a yellow, dough-like paste remains. This paste is then transferred to containers where it cools into Jaggery blocks.

Jaggery vs Refined Sugar

Jaggery contains more nutrients than refined sugar because of its molasses content. Molasses is a nutritious by-product of the sugar making process, which is usually removed when making refined sugar. Molasses adds plenty of micro-nutrients to the final product. Hence, it is more nutritious as compared to white refined sugar!

10 Benefits of Eating Jaggery

  1. Prevents and Treats Common Cold: Consumption of Jaggery helps fight symptoms of a cold and cough. Mixing a small piece of it in warm water or tea can help greatly.

  2. Immunity Booster: Loaded with antioxidants and minerals like zinc and selenium, which helps curb free-radicals responsible for inflammation, Jaggery helps boost resistance against infections, hence building stronger immunity.

  3. Detoxifies the Liver & Other Organs: It plays a major role in detoxifying internal organs such as liver, stomach, intestines, kidneys, etc. by flushing out harmful toxins from the body. Certain compounds present in Jaggery activate the digestive enzymes in our body, which help us digest food properly and also help reduce indigestion/bloating.

  4. Combats Menstrual Pain and PMS: It is helpful in providing relief from cramps. In case you experience mood swings, irritation before your period, you should eat a small piece as it increases the levels of hemoglobin, maintains the hydration levels in our body in heavy-flow during periods and helps in releasing more Endorphins during periods (this helps relax our body). During periods, consume a solution of a glass of lukewarm water and Jaggery. It will help you tackle period cramps for the day.

  5. Body Pain & Aches: Do you suffer from aches and pains in your joints? Eating Jaggery can provide you with immense relief. Add some grated ginger in boiling water and strain. Add a small piece of Jaggery and drink this regularly to reduce joint pain. You can even drink it with a glass of milk everyday to help strengthen the bones. This can help prevent joint and bone problems such as Arthritis.

  6. Prevents Constipation: It activates the digestive enzymes in the body, stimulates bowel movements and helps prevent as well as relieve constipation. A cup of warm water with organic Jaggery and half a lemon’s juice is one of the best home remedy to cure constipation.

  7. Prevents Anaemia: Rich in iron and folate, it helps prevent anaemia by ensuring that a normal level of red blood cells is maintained. It also helps in increasing haemoglobin content of blood. This is especially beneficial for pregnant women.

  8. Acts as a Cooling Agent: Eating a small piece of it everyday helps in maintaining normal body temperature, which helps in keeping your stomach cool. Experts recommend drinking GurSharbat (soaked in ice cold water) during the summer months to cool off.

  9. Prevents Respiratory Problems: By consuming Jaggery regularly, you can prevent many respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, etc. Eating it with sesame seeds is beneficial for the respiratory system and preventing allergies related to it.

  10. Regulates Blood Pressure: Jaggery contains potassium and sodium, which play an important role in the maintenance of pH levels in the body. It ensures that a normal level of blood pressure is properly maintained.

5 points for NRIs to know before making a real estate investment in India

March 2019

NRI Real Estate Investments in Thane
Image Source :

NRIs are eligible to apply for loans in India but should pay back the loan in Indian rupees only.

Chavvii Prabhakar

Global Indians are significant contributors to Indian forex reserves through remittances and investments in various Indian asset classes, of which real estate investments form a major chunk. NRIs, too, have always found investing in real estate to be a rewarding experience.

This, in addition to the depreciating rupee exchange value is benefitting NRI buyers significantly. The overall impact is that Indian real estate market is seeing green shoots of revival in 2018. The positive impact of the reformatory changes is already visible with the industry moving towards greater transparency, efficiency and accountability.

Below are some key points an NRI needs to keep in mind while making a real estate investment in India.

Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney (PoA) is required by NRIs if he/she cannot be physically present in India for execution of property transactions. It empowers a person to act on behalf of another. Responsibility is delegated and, therefore, it helps NRIs manage their assets in India efficiently.

POA could be used for purposes mainly related to mortgage, lease, sell, collect rent and borrow, manage and sell disputes, perform acts required by banks and enter into contracts. The government is planning to amend the laws to make registration mandatory for such deals which will help curb frauds, disputes and stamp duty evasion.

Tax Benefits

India has double taxation avoidance agreements with more than 90 countries. An NRI can claim tax credit on taxes paid by him in India on income from immovable property in his country of residence. The NRI is liable to pay tax on the amount of capital gains arising in India. An immovable property held for more than 24 months is treated as long-term capital asset and gets the indexation benefit with taxation at 20%. Income-Tax Act too allows certain tax deductions under Section 80C to 80TTA and NRIs can use this to reduce their tax burden.

Right way to make a transaction

Investing in real estate in India is no longer as challenging as it used to be. In fact most NRIs today believe that the recent regulatory changes in India have made the sector more efficient and transparent, rendering the environment conducive enough for investment in property.

An NRI investing in India needs to have a checklist of things which should include property verification, list of all documents, KYC, payment plan, tax implication legalities and other local formalities and someone trustworthy to help facilitate the entire process so that it is smooth and efficient.

Regulations to consider

Real estate transactions in India for NRIs fall under the purview of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). Reserve Bank of India has simplified the rules as NRIs holding an Indian passport needs no approval while investing in Indian real estate. Under general permission category, persons of Indian origin require no approval unless they are citizens of neighboring countries.

They can make payment through inward remittance, non-resident rupee (NRE) accounts, non-resident ordinary rupee (NRO) accounts or foreign currency non-resident (FCNR) deposit accounts. Any property investment includes stamp duty, registration charges and service tax to be paid according to Indian laws.

NRIs are eligible to apply for loans in India but should pay back the loan in Indian rupees only.

Type of property to invest

NRIs can purchase any number of properties, both residential and commercial. But they are not allowed to buy any form of agricultural land, farm house and plantation property unless it has been gifted or inherited by them. The depreciating rupee value and regulatory environment after the implementation of reforms is prompting a large number of NRIs to invest in the Indian realty market.

5 steps to buy a house, for first-time home buyers

March 2019

Buy Residential Property in Thane

Image Source :
Planning to buy your dream home in 2019? We look at some of the dos and don’ts that can make it easier for home seekers to raise the down payment and service the EMIs 

Finance is one of the most important determinants, when it comes to buying a house and most of the other considerations revolve around this. As a property purchase is often a once-in-a-lifetime decision, it is essential to evaluate your funds accordingly. To buy a house, one nowadays has to utilise their savings and also opt for a home loan. The process of taking a loan has also become simpler, with a majority of people opting for it. Nevertheless, there are some basic principles that one can follow, to plan your finances for buying a house this year.

1. Pay off all your existing debts

You can never assess your net worth, if you are debt-laden. Any partial payment towards this debt, will show up poorly in your credit ratings and this may affect the home loan process. Paying off your debts completely, will help you move ahead in the direction of home buying. Besides relieving one’s tension, it can help you to properly allocate money for your basic needs and for your big real estate purchase.

2. Invest in multiple assets

One should learn about the different financial instruments available in the market. This can help you to invest your money wisely and use the returns, to fund the purchase of your home. Financial experts always stress on having a mix of different asset classes in one’s portfolio, as this will help you during big-ticket purchases, like property. “Before making the decision to buy a house, one needs to ensure that the current asset allocation is not skewed towards a risky asset class like equities. If that is the case, one needs to shift a chunk of those assets to less risky ones that are also liquid. Mutual funds can be a great avenue for such temporary parking of funds,” says Rakesh Nair, an independent financial advisor.

3. Track your spending

Real estate is an expensive investment. However, with modern buyers being exposed to global standards, they refuse to settle for anything but the best. In such a scenario, every penny counts. Experts suggest that an individual’s monthly budget should be based on the 50/30/20 thumb rule, where one spends 50 per cent on basic necessities, including groceries, utilities, medical expenses, etc., 30 per cent for indulging yourself and your family, while the remaining 20 per cent should be saved. This 20 per cent will help you in your down payment, getting home loans and also in case of any other emergency. “After following the real estate market for the last three months, for buying our own apartment, we found something better than what we were looking for. So, we are trying to channel our funds in this direction. Buying a house requires a huge amount of self-control, to avoid spending money on other temptations and instead, develop a habit of saving money for buying an apartment,” says Vihaan Verma, a house hunter from Delhi, who intends to buy an apartment this year.

4. Standing instructions for automatic transfer of money

Initiate standing instructions at your bank, for transferring money from your salary account to your savings account, every month. This will keep you in check and you will only spend what is left after savings. Going forward, when you take a home loan, you can follow the same method, so that monthly EMIs are taken care of, right at the beginning and you avoid getting into any financial mess.

5. Maintaining a balance between rent and EMIs

Proper planning is especially important, when one plans to buy a house while also living in a rented accommodation. This will entail an outgo of EMI, as well as the rent for your current house.

“Once you avail of a home loan, the EMI starts immediately. This can become a burden, when you are paying it along with the rent for your current house. You have to maintain a proper balance, between the EMI and the rent, so that once you get the possession of the new house, you can increase the EMI amount and move into your dream home. In 2019, there is hope of a reduction in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) for real estate, as well as further reductions in the repo rate, which will directly reduce the pressure of repayment on buyers. In the meantime, buying a ready-to-move-in property can be a viable option, as this will enable you to avoid the rental outgo and the GST,” advises Harvinder Sikka, MD of the Sikka Group.

Fund allocation, for buying a dream home

1. Plan the monthly budget using the 50/30/20 thumb rule, where you spend 50 per cent on basics, 30 per cent on luxury and the remaining 20 per cent towards savings.

2. Change your asset allocation predominantly from risky assets to liquid assets, so that when you zero-in on a property, you can immediately proceed and not let go of an opportunity because of unavailability of funds.

The current financial year is nearing its end and tax payers are busy exploring tax-saving options to reduce their tax outgo. Section 80C is the go-to avenue for availing tax deduction for most tax payers. However, if you have exhausted the Rs 1.5-lakh limit under Section 80(C), here are some tax-saving options you could opt for.

Health insurance under Section 80(D)

Given the increasing healthcare cost, health insurance in the financial portfolio is a must-have. Additionally, it can save you tax under Section 80(D). And not just on premium paid for self, but also for spouse, dependent children and parents.

You can claim a maximum deduction of Rs 25,000 on the premium paid for self, dependent children, spouse. You can claim an additional Rs 25,000 for health insurance for dependent parents under the age of 60 years.

For senior citizen parents, you can claim a maximum deduction of up to Rs 50,000.

However, one thing to be noted here is that the premium needs to be paid in a mode other than cash.

Medical expense incurred for dependents with disability under Sec 80(DD)

Under Section 80 (DD), an individual can claim tax deduction against the expenditure incurred for medical treatment of a dependent person with disability.

A fixed deduction of Rs 75,000 is available for this purpose. You can avail deduction to the extent of Rs 1,25,000 for the ones with severe disability (Deductions available are subject to applicable conditions).

Interest payment on education loan under Sec 80(E)

Interest payment on education loan taken for self, spouse and children is eligible for deduction under Section 80 (E). Deduction for the interest paid needs to be claimed in the relevant financial year. Further, this deduction can be availed for eight years from the time you start repayment.

Donations eligible under Section 80(G)

Donations made to certain funds, charitable institutions, etc. or any other government notified funds are eligible for tax deduction under Section 80 (G).

However, the amount donated should not exceed 10% of the adjusted gross total income. Also, donations made in cash are eligible for tax benefits, only if they are less than Rs 2000.

Payment of rent under Section 80 (GG)

Usually you can claim deduction for HRA through the HRA form received from the employer. However, if you don't receive HRA from your employer, you can claim for deduction for the payment you make toward rent under Sec 80 (GG). Declaration needs to be submitted in Form 10BA to avail the deduction.

Another condition for claiming deduction is that you, your spouse, minor child or HUF of which you are a member do not own a residential house in the place where the rented accommodation is located.

Interest on deposits in savings account under Sec 80 (TTA)

Interest earned on savings account deposit is admissible as a deduction under this Section.

Interest received on the savings account should be added under the head ?Income from other sources?, which makes it eligible for deduction under Section 80 (TTA). The ceiling for deduction under this Section is Rs.10,000.

Interest on deposits in savings account by senior citizens under Sec 80 (TTB)

Interest received by senior citizens on deposits in bank savings account, post offices, term deposits and recurring account deposits is eligible for deduction under Section 80 (TTB). The maximum limit here is Rs 50,000.

With new safety and crash test norms kicking in this year, a lot of cars and SUVs will meet their fate soon. Leading auto manufacturers like Tata Motors, Honda, Mahindra and others will be retiring some of their vehicles this year. Come July 2019 and companies will have to sell four wheelers in India only with mandatory safety features like driver see airbag, ABS, speed alert system, seat belt reminder and rear parking sensors. While some of the four wheelers have been seeing some miserable sales over the last few years, others are not feasible to be updated according to the new norms. Here is the list of 10 cars and SUVs that retire from the Indian market this year. The names include some of the oldest and popular vehicles as well.

Mahindra NuvoSport

The sales of the Mahindra NuvoSport have not been satisfactory in India. One of the reasons behind is that the design of the NuvoSport was not really well accepted in the market and hence, it will meet its fate in July 2019. Powering the Mahindra NuvoSport is a 1.5-litre diesel engine that is offered with both manual and automatic transmission options. Mahindra NuvoSport price in India currently starts at Rs 7.77 lakh that reaches up till Rs 10.25 lakh for the top end variant.

Maruti Suzuki Omni

India's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki's highly popular Omni minivan is also one of the vehicles that will meet its fate in July 2019. First launched in the year 1985, the Maruti Suzuki Omni will not be able to meet the crash test norms that will come into effect starting October 2019. Also, the engine of the Omni won't be upgraded to the BS-VI emission norms. Powering the Maruti Suzuki Omni is a 796cc petrol engine mated to a manual transmission. The minivan is currently priced in India at a starting price of Rs 2.82 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Tata Nano GenX

Tata Nano, the car that acted as the 'dream come true' car for many when it comes to owning a car will also be no longer on sale after July 2019. The GenX version of the Tata Nano might be discontinued from India after July 2019. Powering the car is a 624cc, petrol engine that is available in both manual and automatic transmission options. Tata Nano GenX price in India starts at Rs 2.36 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) that reaches up till the top of the line Rs 3.34 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Tata Sumo Gold

Tata Sumo has been on sale in India for over two decades now and was one of the early passenger vehicles by the company. Now, with safety norms getting mandatory and BS-VI coming into effect soon, the company might phase out the Sumo Gold by July 2019. Tata Sumo Gold price in India is currently Rs 7.52 lakh and the top end variant will cost you Rs 8.96 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Honda Brio

The production of Honda Brio has already stopped and the company's most affordable model will retire by July 2019, after which Amaze will become the brand's most budget offering. The car has not received a significant update since long and add to that the lack of features is why this model will no longer be on sale after a few months. Honda Brio is currently priced in the Indian market between Rs 4.73 lakh and Rs 6.81 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Powering the car is a 1.2-litre petrol engine that is offered with both petrol and diesel gearbox options.

Maruti Suzuki Gypsy

Still listed on the company's official website for India, Maruti Suzuki will pull the plug on Gypsy by July 2019. The SUV will not be updated with new safety features and hence, if you have been planning to buy the Gypsy, this can be the last time to buy one. The Maruti Gypsy is currently available in two variants with prices starting at Rs 6.22 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The vehicle draws power from a 1.3-litre petrol engine mated to a manual transmission.

Fiat Punto

The Fiat Punto has not received a significant update since a long time now and its sales have not been pleasing either. This is the reason why the hatchback will be retired from India this year. Fiat Punto price in India currently starts at Rs 4.82 lakh that reaches up till Rs 7.47 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Fiat Linea

Just like the Punto, the Fiat Linea will also meet its fate this year. The Linea has also been seeing some miserable sales numbers and hence, updating it with new safety features will not make any sense for the manufacturer. Fiat Linea is priced in India at Rs 7.15 lakh for the base variant while the top end trim will set you back by Rs 9.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Mahindra Xylo

Mahindra Xylo is another such model that has not received any major update since long. The Xylo will not be able to meet the upcoming crash tests in India. Add to that the low sales of the SUV and hence, the vehicle will not be on sale after July 2019. Mahindra Xylo price in India currently ranges between Rs 9.38 lakh to Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Mahindra Verito

The sales of the Mahindra Verito have not been satisfactory for the company now and hence, it would be a no brainer to update the Verito with new safety features. Mahindra Verito price in India starts at Rs 7.48 lakh and the top end trim will set you back by Rs 9.21 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Powering the Mahindra Verito is a 1.5-litre diesel engine mated to a manual gearbox.

Work from Home in Thane
Image Source :
Nowadays, a lot of white-collar employees wish to avail the work from home option to meet both professional and personal ends. Most of them are pretty satisfied with the work from home option. On the other hand, many professionals have complained that this option is not giving enough time to focus on either personal or professional work.

Undisputedly, working from home is the best option only when you have command over yourself and your physical boundaries. The most intimidating thing while working from home is switching between work and personal activities. For this reason, many believe that this option is not allowing them to achieve professional targets. Here are the tips that make you focus on both, personal and professional tasks, while working from home.

Identify A Good Workplace

Most working folks complain that due to the environment they are not happy with this work from home option. Identify a designated work space in your home prior to opting for this option. If you have such a place in your home, you can enjoy the most. You can even create such a place by restricting your family members and others. However, keep this place clean and tidy up before starting your work.

Avoid Distractions

Many working folk complain that they are not able to focus on work while working at home because of the distractions. To be honest, this is inevitable. Try to minimise your distractions such as turning on the television, laundry and personal activities. One should also restrict their trips to the kitchen while working from home.

Focus Only On One Job

As we said above, you need to switch between work and personal activities while working from home. If you have any dependants, there will be a number of complications which are unavoidable. If you want to focus on professional targets, restrict yourself and complete without thinking much about the personal activities.

Switch The Physical Area

Be it cubicle or home, one has to switch between physical areas for freshness and focus. While working from home, take lunch breaks in a different area, other than your place of work. The switch between the scenery will help you clear your mind.

Maintain Communication

Not all the professional targets depend on you. Team work is required specifically for the targets of a project. While working from home, we know that maintaining effective communication is not possible. Try to get in touch with your team lead and members whenever you face a difficulty.

Breaks Are Necessary

We usually assume that we do need breaks while working from home. Honestly, breaks are required for every individual to focus more. By taking breaks while working from home, you can complete more personal tasks besides relaxing. However, taking too many breaks is also not a good idea.

Have A Professional Attire

You might be surprised with this point because many people love to work in cubicles in relaxed apparels. However, a professional attire while working from home will make you to focus more and always remind you about the daily targets.

Be Clear On Your Targets

As we mentioned above, your communication with the team members or team lead will be very low while working from home. Due to this or other reasons, you might face some difficulty in understanding the targets for a particular day. Hence, we suggest you get clear instructions for your targets or work before you start working. This is required while working from a cubicle also, but there you have an option to constantly communicate and get your doubts clarified.
