India's political landscape

Garvo Gujarati: I really feed bad about good people who blindly supported Kejriwal even after his numbers of U-turns. Anyway things get corrected over the period of time and now the true colors of the demon are surfaced.
zindabad: psychopath - shameless Kejru begging to Sheila Dixit and Congress to do " Gathbandhan " . I remember there was an old movie " Delhi ka Thug " .. This psychopath believes that delhi people are chu**ya ...
elmer fudd: All accused in the 2G scam acquitted by CBI special court (CBI is under govt. control). Looks like BJP and DMK might be forging an alliance. I wonder how Modi will slink out of this, considering it has happened right under his nose.
zindabad: वक्त कितनी जल्दी निकल जाता है पता ही नहीं चलता .


MITRON: The renewal process will take the same amount of time as a brand new first time application. So give it about 2 months, don't expect it any sooner, just because it is a renewal. Don't book any plane tickets till you have the OCI in hand.
MITRON: BLS Brampton has an in house photo service if you want to use it. BLS In house Photography services : BLS visa and passport application center has an in-house photo-booth facility which enables
samna1978: Has anyone renewed OCI for their kids recently at the brampton location? Is there any place near the BLS centre which can take OCI pictures and upload it for us? thx

Wifi Internet in India

tamilkuravan: There are strict verification of ID for purchasing any Wifi items. Aaadhaar card is asked these days. So you have to buy this, using your parents as a front. Only tops ups / monthly payements are a breeze.
MITRON: If you are just going to use internet 3-4 hrs a day, the phone as a hot spot will be more than enough. But if you are going to use it 10 hrs a day, better to have a WiFi dongle or stick. Leave the dongle behind for your parents and for your future visits.
MITRON: Yes, you can use that. But generally the phone battery drains faster when you use it as a hot spot and phone also heats up a bit. So either you have to keep the phone plugged in while using it as a
captainbeam: Thanks Mitron for your informative posts. I have to check what kind of coverage Jio has in my area in Delhi. Airtel should have good coverage. do you think it is better to just buy a 4G enabled cell phone with lots of data and just use that as a hotspot around the house?

PIO to OCI conversion in 2019

MITRON: Apply for a brand new OCI in India. Don't do PIO to OCI conversion. LINK
GlobalIndian: I am aware of three white girls who married Indian men in India and got OCI; during the entire process of obtaining OCI, they never had to leave India. So, TK I think you should be able to convert your PIO to OCI without leaving India, if you do not wish to leave.
zindabad: Just check with BLS , I think there should not be any issue to convert PIO ~ OCI in India ******** How do you become/convert to an OCI? You can apply through the Indian embassy in your country of
tamilkuravan: i have a PIO. Living in india. for conversion i need to come to Toronto, which i canot. I plan to land in Canada in may. So what are my options? Murali

My experience moving back to India

bhagatsing: Bravo Crish, I recently visited India and to my amazement it was a great experience. Crowding and Traffic were the two disturbing factors but with such a large population this is expected. If you avoid the high end stores and restaurants its highly affordable on a low budget. Its clean, traverse across the country by train at a low price and reliable service. Overall it is an option worth considering.
zindabad: Velammal Medical College Hospital & Research Institute Madhurai There is a hospital which is like a 5 star Hotel and that is Velammal Hospital at Madhurai. This message was published by a Lawyer who took his co-employee for a treatment and he was awestruck and has shared his experience with others.
Full House: You are 100% correct and my rightful place should be close to a Financial Center that enables me to get to know a lot of the Knowledgeable people and the Industrialists close by. And with the advent of the High Speed Rail between Mumbai and Ahmadabad I am sure the distances will shrink all the more, as time progresses. You can't escape seeing me or hide after that.

Highlights: - Total GTA sales in February 2019 were down by 2.4% (year over year) - February 2019 Vs February 2018 - The OSFI mandated mortgage stress test is one of the reasons for lower sales. - New listings also declined by a greater annual rate, creating the tight market (Supply-Demand) condition. - Resulting in average price growth year over year. - MLS home price index and average selling price - both were up modestly. - The prices of Semi Detached type of properties lead the way this month, in terms of growth. The year over year increase in the average selling price for Semi detached was: 9.9%, followed by Condo apartments which saw an increase of 6.1% - Average selling price for Detached properties slided down by 2.1% (year over year) - However, ASP for townhouse remained more or less same.
