Kolkata: West Bengal would try to prevail upon the GST Council for giving exemption to businesses having an annual turnover of up to Rs 50 lakh, the state’s Finance Minister Amit Mitra said today. At present, the exemption limit for GST is for businesses having an annual turnover of Rs 20 lakh or less. “Let the GST stabilise first. It has not yet stabilised as matching of invoices with vouchers was being done manually,” Mitra said at a meeting of garment manufacturers and traders here. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed He said the implementation of the new tax regime was done in a hurry, and the GST network had not been able to upload the GSTR2 form online yet for matching vouchers with invoices done through the GSTR1 (already uploaded online). “The exemption limit can be raised gradually,” he said. Mitra also announced that requirement of e-way bills for workers within the state was no longer needed. This, he said, would apply to the garment manufacturers in West Bengal.

Mitra said the state had already formed a JV with the National Institute of Design (NID) of Ahmedabad for a design centre in West Bengal, and efforts would be made for designing of textiles as well. He stressed upon the need for upgradation of the quality of garments and refrain from using ‘azo-dyes’, which bar the manufacturers from exporting to European countries.
BALURGHAT: Trinamool Congress MP and youth wing president Abhishek Banerjee has appealed to the public to uproot BJP from the soil of Bengal in the upcoming Parliamentary Elections in 2019.Addressing a rally at Dishari Ground here in Balurghat, Banerjee said: “In the Left regime, we heard the names like Hat Kata Dilip, Kan Kata Dilip (nicknames of popular Left-backed goons during the party’s rule in Bengal). Now, the people of Bengal are hearing the name of BJP’s Dilip Ghosh, who is already popular for his abusive languages. The saffron brigade has no control over him. If our leader Mamata Banerjee instructs us, no one can find a single flag of BJP across Bengal.” Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeAttacking the party at the Centre, Banerjee said: “BJP divides people using religion. This is nothing but petty politics through which BJP is trying to polarise voters. But Bengal’s soil is different, where people will never entertain such devastating politics.”Criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his role in the attack on Trinamool and party supremo Mamata Banerjee, the youth wing president said: “Seven births are not enough for Modi to oust Mamata Banerjee from Bengal. The Chief Minister, during her two-term tenure, has undertaken a plethora of development projects like Sabuj Sathi, Kanyashree, Shikshashree, Yubasree and many more. Bengal has been running peacefully under her guidance and ruling but there is total anarchy and unrest everywhere else for the misrule of BJP in the Centre.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedBanerjee also compared the Prime Minister with Gabbar Singh, a popular villain from the 70s Bollywood film Sholay.”We are ready to fight with the communal forces in the 2019 Lok Sabha poll. BJP will never form the government there. Mamata Banerjee has set a target to defeat BJP. We will win all 42 seats here. Bengal is the soil of Matangini, Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda and Rabindranath. Our integrity is great but nowadays we are hearing only Jai Sree Ram,” Banerjee said. Attacking ‘Aadhaar’, Banerjee said: “The Central government has already created panic among people in the name of Aadhaar card. People are now scared of it.”Attacking the Left Front, Banerjee said: “CPI-M and other Left parties are now taking shelter under BJP’s umbrella for existence. They have no ideology at all. People have already rejected them for misrule from Bengal.”Veteran Trinamool leaders like Firhad Hakim, Subrata Bakshi, Chandrima Bhattacharjee, Arpita Ghosh and Biplab Mitra echoed Banerjee and said people are now ready to oust BJP from the Centre, while Trinamool will win all 42 seats and will take the lead role to form government at the Centre in 2019.
Kolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) will embrace social media in a big way to boost its dengue drive this year. People of the city particularly the young generation are very active on social media so planned use of the social media platform is expected to widen the civic body’s reach in creating awareness. The step will help to prevent the spread of mosquito-borne diseases.”We will start our campaigns on Facebook and Whats app and for this we have already started discussions with experts associated directly with these social platforms. We are in the process of preparing a strategy for our campaign,” said Deputy Mayor Atin Ghosh, who is also in-charge of Kolkata Municipal Corporation’s Health department. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseThe Health department of KMC has already been undertaking drives to prevent mosquito-borne diseases in the city with special emphasis on visiting households which had witnessed dengue cases last year. The civic body is armed with a map of those addresses across the city. The team from the KMC visited Chatubabu Lane and Ananda Palit Road area under ward 55 which are dominated by slums. We have come across a number of vacant plots which are privately owned or belong to the Kolkata Improvement Trust (KIT) or WAKF land which needs to be cleaned up. We have identified the owners and will soon slap notices to them under Section 496 A of the KMC Act. We will be cleaning up the places but the owners have to pay charges against it,” Ghosh said. The KMC team spoke to patients who had dengue last year and advised them on how to keep their premises clean. The team of KMC’s Health department was accompanied by the ward councillor, borough chairman and officials from the Solid Waste Management department of the KMC.

Ingrid DeltenreIn its latest intervention over crisis-hit central and eastern European public broadcasters, EBU director-general Ingrid Deltenre has called on the Romanian government to make an urgent intervention to save the country’s pubcaster, which she says is facing imminent collapse.In a letter to Romanian prime minister Dacian Cioloş, Deltenre said that broadcaster TVR’s indebtedness combined lack of government support had created a dire situation.“Currently, TVR is facing complete financial collapse, caused by significant debts. In addition, the temporary management cannot embark on strategic reforms,” said Deltenre, pointing out that the broadcaster would, for the first time in its history, not be able to air coverage of the Euro 2016 football competition, meaning that Romanian viewers would only be able to see part of the competition, and then only if they subscribed to pay TV.“We at the European Broadcasting Union have done all we can to assist TVR by rescheduling debts, but we are still owed €15 million. We have sent letters to your predecessors and to the Romanian authorities, but the situation has unfortunately only become worse. TVR’s crisis should not be ingnored any longer and urgent decisions need to be taken babout the future of this institution,” Deltenre said in her letter.“There is a need for an all-encompassing reform and for new legislation that addresses all key questions regarding public service broadcasting’s sustainable funding, governance and remit, based on the proposal developed by TVR.”Deltenre said that she was “encouraged” by a recent meeting involving the government and parliamentarians to discuss the issue and by the possibility that the Romanian government would consider a guaranteed for outstanding bank loans.Proposals aired to ameliorate TVR’s financial situation have included trying to improve licence fee collection and increasing the amount of advertising minutes that the broadcaster can sell.
