The Russian government will prepare a reciprocal response to Canada, which introduced sanctions against 15 Russian citizens, including six State Duma deputies representing Crimea, Kirill Kalinin, spokesperson for Russian Embassy in Ottawa said on Monday, while calling the move “very disappointing.” The new restrictive measures threaten to sour the bilateral relations, which “have started to improve lately,” Kalinin said, labeling the sanctions “unfriendly,” “illegitimate” and “irrational.” Earlier on Monday, Ottawa added 15 people to the list of sanctioned individuals, saying it does not recognize State Duma elections in Crimea and aims to “maintain the necessary pressure on Russia,” which it claimed would help uphold the Minsk Agreements on Ukraine.

Moving to a cashless society

New Delhi, November 28, 2016
Agrahayana 07, Saka 1938
Moving systematically towards a cashless society as visualized by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Minister of Steel Shri Chaudhary Birender Singh had a detailed meeting with the officials of Steel Ministry on 25.11.2016.  It has been decided to have time bound approach to ensure a smooth, effective and sustainable shift to a cashless society.

Initially, Steel Manufacturers, both in Private and Public Sector will ensure that all their business transactions are undertaken in digital mode.  Thereafter, the focus will be on colonies (including hospitals, schools, etc. therein) of Steel manufacturers both in the Private and Public sector.  Special camps will be held for both regular and contract employees and their families to familiarize them with digital/electronic/mobile operations.  In marketplaces operating with Project areas of Steel manufacturers, shopkeepers/traders would be encouraged to shift to POS machines (Point of Sale) which users can use to transact their shopping and business.  The smaller transactions particularly can be transacted in mobile mode.

The Steel manufacturers should examine provision of internet connection in the Project area in entirety under their respective CSR mandates.  We will facilitate repeat camps to train/retrain those requiring this training with the objective of attaining a cash free environment.  This exercise may be also replicated in villages in the Project areas of CPSEs as well as in areas where currently CSR operations/activities are underway.  CPSUs may work with not merely scheduled commercial banks but also post offices and cooperative banks working in the region. The Ministry of Steel proposes to monitor progress achieved regularly on fortnightly basis starting by December 2016.

Press Conference today

Press Conference Switzerland Tourism


The fresh Duo Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt visited capital city for the promotions of their upcoming film ‘Dear Zindagi’.
The stars along with the director launched the new song of the film ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le’ at the press conference held in Gurgaon!
The film has been the talk of the town ever since the trailer and promos of the film were out.  Heartbreak, relatable songs and the amazing chemistry between SRK and Alia are the highlights of the film ‘Dear Zindagi’.
The King of romance, Shahrukh Khan who plays a Psychologist in the movie said “We live in a man’s world unfortunately. Without preaching, whatever and however a woman does can never be wrong. Woman never wants someone to solve their problems but they want someone to listen to their words without judging them”
Gauri Shinde whose first film ‘English Vinglish’ garnered much praise when asked if people would go to watch the film just because of the star-factor, she said “The content of the film and SRK is not separated. Even if people would go to watch the film because of the stars, they will definitely like the movie. I believe stardom doesn’t overshadow the content.”
SRK further added “The content of the film is extremely strong. The film is ‘Kaira-centric’ (Alia’s character) movie.”
Alia Bhatt who is much excited for this release said “After watching the film you’d wish to have someone like ‘JUG’ (Jahangir Khan) in your life”
Presented by Red Chillies Entertainment, the film is directed by Gauri Shinde and is releasing on 25th September in the theatres.

Mumbai girl and Jamnabai Narsee International school student exhibited a series of forehand and backhand winners, which gave her an edge over her opponents.

Delighted with the win, Shanaya said, “I am very excited to win this title. I was determined this time to give my best. Every single moment counts in this sport; that’s why I train very hard. The more I train, the better I feel.” Talking about her spirit and fitness, she added, “Regular exercises and a nutritious diet are something I rigorously follow. The long endurance levels and stamina required during tournaments are possible only through a strict regime and discipline, which I have attempted to practice in my daily life.”
Shanaya started playing tennis since she was 7 year old, and since then has won several tournaments in the U-10, U-12, U14 & U-16 categories respectively.
Shanaya coaches under Ramarao Sir and Kiran Sir at Practennis, one of the leading tennis academy in India.
That apart, Shanaya also attended the Stanford University tennis camp in California in the summer of 2015, where she won the ‘Best Player’ award during the two weeks she played there. This summer she trained at Siri fort, Delhi with Aditya Sachdev.
Speaking of her, Paul Goldstein, Director of Men’s tennis Stanford University said, “I found Shanaya to be highly motivated to accomplish her lofty objectives in tennis. She exhibited exemplary sportsmanship with continued development. I feel she has the potential to be an impact player on the ITF junior circuit in ITF in the upcoming years”.
Shanaya has been playing tennis since around eight years. But in the last five years, she has developed a keen interest in tennis to pursue it as a career. Her parents’ commitment towards this sport is total. Her tennis idols Nadal & Djokovich have been a strong motivation to pursue tennis.
This coupled with the support and encouragement of her school, Jamnabai Narsee International school, has helped her channelize all her energies into this sport!
