Mr Jaitley, here's how you could make taxpayers happy without impacting collections 18.1.2017 DNA: India
If people across classes and professions could have one common wish from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley fom his upcoming budget, it would be lower taxes. There have been countless ideas on how the government could lower taxes in Budget 2017. While some propose an increase in the income exemption limit of Rs 2.5 lakh, others talk about widening the tax slabs to increase the limits to which the highest tax rate applies. The government has a tough task on hand, balancing tax collections to make way for more tax benefits.  Here are some revenue neutral measures that the government could take in this budget to make taxpayers happy: Extend time limit allowed for completion of construction of house property Tax benefits on home loan can be claimed only after construction of the house is complete.

Financial planning tips for double income, no kids couples 9.1.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
'Dink' is an acronym for 'Dual or double Income and No Kids' couples. Investopedia explains ''Dink'' as typically a couple that has high education and a high income, with no children. The term 'Dink', has become a familiar term in India that can be categorised as those couples who are either newly married with high income or don't have kids as yet. Why is Financial Planning very important for a 'Dink' couple? Since 'Dink' couples have two incomes, most of their expenses, EMIs and bills get split between them and, at times, they also enjoy various tax breaks due to their joint holdings, like in the case of properties and the benefits on home loans. This typically leaves them with  more income at their disposal. Since they do not have to worry about responsibilities like diaper changes or babysitting yet, it leaves them with more time to fulfil and live their dreams. However, this is exactly what could possibly create financial problems. More free time and money means it's easy to get used to a lavish ...
