Retirement planning with an additional tax deduction of up to Rs.50,000 under section 80 CCD (1B) over and above the benefits available under Section 80C
Now invest in Tier 1 (Tax Saver scheme) and Tier 2 (Zero Lock-in Period scheme)

Paytm Money today announced the launch of the much-awaited National Pension System on its app, post-approval from the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA), making it one of the first online platforms in the country to do so. This new addition is expected to benefit investors by helping them save for their retirement while also enabling tax benefits. In 2009 the ‘All Citizen Model’ in NPS was launched which allows any individual to enroll in NPS. However, till date, only 13 lakh investors have enrolled under the ‘All Citizen Model’. Paytm Money intends to increase this number manifold by enabling investments in NPS via a simple and quick digital investing experience.

“In a country like India with its huge young working population, retirement planning needs to be simplified. We want to bring NPS investing to millions of Indians and help them build a retirement corpus. It sits perfectly with our vision of democratizing wealth management in India. NPS as an offering also incentivizes the users to save additional taxes & hence complements the wide range of existing tax-saver mutual funds on our platform, said Amit Nayyar, President, Financial Services-Paytm. Paytm Money will be offering NPS with the choice to invest in Tier 1 (Tax Saver scheme) and Tier 2 (Zero Lock-in Period scheme), and provide a comprehensive platform to investors to invest in both the Tier 1 and Tier 2 accounts seamlessly.

The addition of NPS to an already feature-rich platform is a smart move that will aid investor journey in more ways than one. NPS is a smart pension scheme that helps in building a retirement corpus in a systematic way with a regular income post-retirement. Additionally, one also gets to claim a tax benefit of up to Rs.1.5 lakh under Section 80 CCD (1) and an additional tax deduction of up to Rs.50,000 under section 80 CCD (1B) over and above the benefits available under Section 80C. The tax benefit available under Section 80 CCD (1) is within the overall ceiling of Section 80 CCE. Hence, investments in NPS allow one to enjoy tax benefits to the tune of Rs 2 lakh.

With more than 5 million users exploring its platform for investments, today Paytm Money claims to have investors from 98% of pin codes of India. The team at Paytm Money sees a similar trajectory for NPS on its app given the limited penetration of the product in the country and the ease of accessibility the app offers.

[Shenzhen, China, May 12, 2020] Huawei, the world’s leading ICT provider, has established an alliance with 18 automakers to build a 5G-enabled automobile ecosphere to accelerate commercial use of 5G technologies in the industry. The first batch of 18 automakers of this alliance include First Automobile Group, Chang’an Automobile, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, SAIC Motor Corporation, Guangzhou Automobile Group, BYD Auto, Great Wall Motors, Chery Holdings and JAC Motors.

“Together with the deep convergence of automotive and ICT, intelligent connected vehicle emerges as a new revolutionary development engine of human society, with its impact goes far beyond the two industries themselves,” said Eric Xu, Huawei Rotating Chairman.

With advantages in transmission speed, reliability and low latency, 5G technology is considered essential for enhancing connected vehicles’ self-driving and entertainment capabilities.

According to GlobalData, Asia-Pacific (APAC) will be the leading region in terms of 5G technology adoption with 1.14 billion subscribers, accounting for 65% of global 5G subscriptions by 2024, which will significantly influence the segments like IoT and automobile. Since the launch of its first 5G communications hardware MH5000 in April 2019, Huawei has provided products and technologies such as the T-Box platform for ecosystem partners to support 5G vehicle and 5G+C-V2X intelligent network application innovation.

In April, Huawei launched a new DC fast-charging module product “Huawei HiCharger”, a solution to NEV charging infrastructures. The company is also building an open intelligent-driving platform to study app interface, car controlling systems, smart cockpits and the internet of vehicles. Over the past year, many international and domestic automotive companies have launched various innovations in self-driving, intelligent network, and information services based on Huawei’s 5G products and solutions, gradually enabling consumers to perceive the value of 5G technologies in automobiles.

“Huawei does not make cars”, said Eric Xu. “Based on ICT, Huawei aims to be a digital car oriented and new-added components provider.”

राष्ट्रीय, 4 मई 2020: गृह मंत्रालय (एमएचए) द्वारा देश के चयनित क्षेत्रों में पाबंदियों में ढील दिये जाने के साथ, भारत के अग्रणी मोबिलिटी प्लेटफॉर्म और विश्व की सबसे बड़ी राइड-हेलिंग कंपनियों में से एक, ओला ने आज नई सुरक्षा पहल ‘10 स्टेप्स टू अ सेफर राइड’ लॉन्च की है। इस पहल को ग्रीन और ऑरेंज जोन वाले करीब 100 शहरों में परिचालन दोबारा शुरू होने के बाद लाया गया है। ओला के लिए सुरक्षा सबसे महत्‍वपूर्ण है, जिसके अनुसार यह पहल कोविड-19 के युग में स्वास्थ्य और कल्याण की साझा जिम्मेदारी के महत्व को दोहराते हुए ड्राइवर-पार्टनर्स और ग्राहकों के लिये राइडिंग का एक सुरक्षित अनुभव देने की कंपनी की प्रतिबद्धता को मजबूत करती है।

ओला की ‘10 स्टेप्स टू अ सेफर राइड’ पहल सभी राइड्स में सुरक्षा सुनिश्चित करने के लिये ग्राहकों और ड्राइवर पार्टनर्स के बराबर योगदान के महत्व पर जोर देती है। प्रोटोकॉल के अनुसार सभी राइड्स केवल चिन्हित सुरक्षा क्षेत्रों में होंगी और प्रत्येक ड्राइवर-पार्टनर द्वारा सुरक्षा नियमों का पालन सुनिश्चित करने के लिये हर राइड से पहले और बाद में एक अनिवार्य सेल्फी प्रमाणन प्रणाली रखी गई है। इसके अलावा, प्रत्येक राइड के बाद सभी कारों को साफ और सैनिटाइज किया जाएगा और एक फ्‍लेक्सिबल कैंसेलेशन स्‍कीम भी रखी गई है, जिसके अंतर्गत ग्राहक और ड्राइवर पार्टनर किसी राइड को कैंसेल सकते हैं, यदि उन्हें लगे कि दूसरा पक्ष नियमों का पालन नहीं कर रहा है या मास्क नहीं पहन रहा है।  

कंपनी ने ड्राइवर-पार्टनर्स और ग्राहकों के लिये 5-5 सावधानी के उपाय निर्धारित किये हैंजो उन्हें सोशल डिस्‍टेंसिंगसैनिटाइजेशन और व्यक्तिगत स्वच्छता के लिये प्रोत्साहित करते हैं। प्रोटोकॉल्स इस प्रकार हैं :

उन्होंने आगे कहा, ‘‘10 स्टेप्स टू अ सेफर राइड’ ग्राहकों और ड्राइवर-पार्टनर्स से 10 सर्वश्रेष्ठ स्वच्छता उपायों को अपनाने का आग्रह करती है, ताकि उन पर और समुदाय पर कोरोनावायरस का जोखिम न हो। संक्रमण को कम करने के अपने प्रयास में रोकथाम के आवश्यक उपाय करने के लिये एकजुट होने से अच्छे परिणाम मिलेंगे और हम मजबूत बनकर उभरेंगे।’’

केन्द्र सरकार के नियमों का पालन करने हुए ओला केवल ऑरेंज और ग्रीन जोन्स में परिचालन करेगा और स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय के सुरक्षा नियमों को मानेगा। इन शहरों में आज से ही परिचालन चरणबद्ध तरीके से लॉन्च होगा। मौजूदा प्रोटोकॉल के अनुसार, अस्पतालों की यात्रा के लिये 15 शहरों में ओला इमरजेंसी सर्विसेज चालू रहेंगी ।
