CarpetArea/Built up Area :-  

  1. The rate mentioned in annual, valuation rate are of built up area. If documents mentioned Carpet area, then valuation should be made by drawing built up area as follows :

Built up area = 1.1 x Carpet area or Carpet area = Built up area / 1.1

However in the case of open   parking, terrace and balcony, only mentioned area should be considered.

  1. Valuation of closed balcony adjacent to the flats/offices/shops/industrial properties should be made with sales price of the respective use of concerned annual valuation rate table.
  2.  If open balcony adjacent to the Flats/ Offices/ Shops/Industrial use is shown in documents and plans with it , then its.valuation should be made at the rate of 40% of the sale price of respective use shown in annual valuation rate          according to Instruction No.15 for Mumbai and Instruction No. 14 for rest of Maharashtra.

RBI cautions bank customers against fake website seeking confidential account info

The Reserve Bank of India has cautioned citizens against a fake website which is fraudulently taking personal and confidential banking details of bank customers posing as the central bank.

The Reserve Bank of India has cautioned citizens against a fake website which is fraudulently taking personal and confidential banking details of bank customers posing as the central bank.

“It has come to the notice of the Reserve Bank of India that a fake website of the Reserve Bank of India has been created with the URL http://www.indiareserveban.org by some unknown person(s). The layout of the fake website is similar to the original RBI website,” RBI said in a statement on its website.

The official website of the RBI — India’s central bank — is https://www.rbi.org.in  and it holds no other website.

The home page of the fake website also contains a provision for “Bank verification with online account holders” which appears to have been created with a fraudulent intent of obtaining personal and confidential banking details of customers of banks, it added.

The Reserve Bank of India clarifies that as India’s central bank, it does not hold any accounts for individuals and never asks for personal information such as bank account details, passwords, etc…

“The Reserve Bank cautions members of public that responding online on such websites could result in compromising crucial personal information that may be misused to cause financial and other loss to them,” the banking regulator clarified.

Over past years, RBI has been consistently alerting customers about the fake websites, emails asking to transfer funds or for bank account details in the name of a lottery, fictitious job offers in the name of RBI jobs, etc fraudulently luring and cheating customers and that one should not fall prey to it.

Further, members of public are also cautioned about existence of websites such as www.rbi.orgwww.rbi.in etc. These URLs may appear similar to the website of RBI. However, these websites have no affiliation with the Reserve Bank of India. Members of public are advised to be cautious while accessing or when providing any information on such sites.

Dangers of Statin Drugs

Dangers of Statin Drugs: What You Haven’t Been Told About Popular Cholesterol-Lowering Medicines

Hypercholesterolemia is the health issue of the 21st century. It is actually an invented disease, a “problem” that emerged when health professionals learned how to measure cholesterol levels in the blood. High cholesterol exhibits no outward signs–unlike other conditions of the blood, such as diabetes or anemia, diseases that manifest telltale symptoms like thirst or weakness–hypercholesterolemia requires the services of a physician to detect its presence. Many people who feel perfectly healthy suffer from high cholesterol–in fact, feeling good is actually a symptom of high cholesterol!

Doctors who treat this new disease must first convince their patients that they are sick and need to take one or more expensive drugs for the rest of their lives, drugs that require regular checkups and blood tests. But such doctors do not work in a vacuum–their efforts to convert healthy people into patients are bolstered by the full weight of the US government, the media and the medical establishment, agencies that have worked in concert to disseminate the cholesterol dogma and convince the population that high cholesterol is the forerunner of heart disease and possibly other diseases as well.

Who suffers from hypercholesterolemia? Peruse the medical literature of 25 or 30 years ago and you’ll get the following answer: any middle-aged man whose cholesterol is over 240 with other risk factors, such as smoking or overweight. After the Cholesterol Consensus Conference in 1984, the parameters changed; anyone (male or female) with cholesterol over 200 could receive the dreaded diagnosis and a prescription for pills. Recently that number has been moved down to 180. If you have suffered from a heart attack, you get to take cholesterol-lowering medicines even if your cholesterol is already very low–after all, you have committed the sin of having a heart attack so your cholesterol must therefore be too high. The penance is a lifetime of cholesterol-lowering medications along with a boring lowfat diet. But why wait until you have a heart attack? Since we all labor under the stigma of original sin, we are all candidates for treatment. Current dogma stipulates cholesterol testing and treatment for young adults and even children.
