Girls complete the job, no matter what :)

The FBI had an opening for an assassin. After all the background checks,
interviews and testing were done, there were 3 finalists; two men and a

For the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large
metal door and handed him a gun. "We must know that you will follow our
instructions no matter what the circumstances. Inside the room you will
find your wife sitting in a chair . . . Kill her!!"

The man said, "You can't be serious. I could never shoot my wife." The
agent said, "Then you're not the right man for this job. Take your wife
and go home."

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went
into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes. The man came out with
tears in his eyes, "I tried, but I can't kill my wife." The agent said,
"You don't have what it takes. Take your wife home."

Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was given the same instructions, to
kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were
heard, one after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the
walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and
there stood the woman, wiping the sweat from her brow. "This gun was
loaded with false bullets" she said. "I had to beat him to death with the

MORAL: Girls are extremely determined..... Don't mess with them?

Principal repayment not elegible for deduction under DTC

Where house property is purchased using loaned funds, the owner is eligible for a deduction of Rs. 1,00,000 towards repayment of the principal amount of the housing loan. This deduction is however, subject to an overall cap along with various other prescribed investments under Section 80C of the Act. It is important to note that this benefit is not envisaged under the provisions of the new Direct Tax Code that will come into effect from April 1, 2012.
The benefit of interest deductions continue to exist in the proposed new Direct Tax Code.
The new Direct Tax Code also provides for similar exemption in respect of long-term capital gains. 
In addition to the above, investment in a house property is also eligible for exemption from payment of capital gains subject to fulfilment of certain conditions. To avail this benefit, the taxpayer would have to invest/reinvest the capital gains for purchasing HP. Such exemption is available only if the capital gain is a long-term and arises due to transfer of any long-term capital asset.

SBI MCG to have two CGM's

State Bank of India (SBI), the country’s largest lender, is planning to reorganise its entire mid-corporate group (MCG), which currently has a loan portfolio of over Rs 150,000 crore.

As part of this effort, it will have two chief general managers (CGM) instead of one. “The proposal was cleared by the SBI board yesterday,” A P Verma, deputy managing director and group executive of MCG, told mediapersons here today.

According to Verma, the initiative has been mooted with a view to have a closer contact with customers, better coordination and faster business development.

SBI created MCG in July 2004 with an objective to extend relationship banking to mid-corporates with an annual turnover of Rs 50-500 crore. The group lends amounts ranging from Rs 10 crore to Rs 500 crore.

“By mid-January, we will appoint another CGM who will be based in Hyderabad and to whom the general managers of Chennai, Bangalore, Bhubaneswar and Kolkata will report,” he said, adding that the five regions were expected to grow faster than the other five regions of MCG.

MCG currently has 64 branches functioning under 10 regional offices headed by general managers who report to the CGM based in Mumbai. It has 6,500 clients.

Verma said MCG would expand its branch network to 200 over the next 18 months as it intended to have a presence in all the “top 100 business centres in India”. In 2010-11, the group's loan portfolio was expected to increase to Rs 175,000 crore. Its year-on-year (yoy) growth rate stood at 16-17 per cent.

Following the economic downturn in 2008-09, MCG restructured a large number of accounts. The outstanding of the restructured accounts was around Rs 15,000 crore. In the second quarter of the current financial year, the slippage amount stood close to Rs 800 crore. Of this, just three clients accounted for Rs 600 crore. “I, however, think that the worst is over with regard to non-performing assets,” he said.

Verma said credit offtake had not picked up in tune with the GDP growth rate. One of the reasons for this was rupee borrowing becoming costlier compared to external borrowing. Consequently, large corporates were changing their borrowing profiles.

Nevertheless, he envisaged further hardening of interest rates till March 2011. “We are getting into a situation where the so-called second generation reforms have to be ushered in,” he added.

Earlier, Verma inaugurated SBI's renovated Industrial Finance Branch, which was started here in 1989. It is stated to be the bank's biggest branch in the state with an yearly business of Rs 7,700 crore and a profit of Rs 148 crore.

Be carefull of following in an Interview?

1. Lying
Although it's tempting, it doesn't work. By all means gloss over the unflattering things. But out-right fibbing NEVER pays.

Mark Twain said: "If you tell the truth, you never have to remember anything." Think about it. They will catch you out later.

Slating your current company or boss
Fedup with your current job and would give anything to leave becausethey've treated you badly? Your job interview is NOT the time to seekrevenge. Bear in mind that the interviewer will be listening to youranswers and thinking about what it would be like to work with you. Askyourself: do you like working with people who constantly criticiseothers? Isn't it a bit wearing? The trouble is that the interviewerdraws massive conclusions from your answers. So your throwaway commentabout your boss or employer may be interpreted to be your "standard"way of thinking. It makes you look bad, not your employer.

3. Being Rude
Ifyou find you were accidentally rude, then apologise calmly andgenuinely. Then leave it behind you and get on with the rest of theinterview. If you dwell on it, it will affect your performance. What's"rude"? Well, that depends on your audience. As a rule of thumb, avoidcracking jokes about potentially sensitive topics and beware of beingtoo "pally" with the interviewer: polite and friendly is enough. Afterall, you're not in the pub with them. So stay professional. Also bearin mind that everyone you meet could be involved in the selectionprocess. So blanking the receptionist or talking down to the juniormembers of staff could cost you the job.

4. Complaining
Ok,so your train journey might have been a nightmare and maybe you thoughtthe tube would never arrive, or the tailbacks on the motorway wereendless. But your interviewer doesn't want to know that!
Complaining,even in jest, is not a recommended icebreaker. It may be completelyharmless, or it might simply make the interviewer switch off. Don't letcomplaining set the tone for the interview!

5. Talking about people you don't get on with at work
Thesedays, it's common to be asked how you deal with conflict. Companiesrealise the importance of interpersonal relationships in the workingenvironment. So if they ask you about difficult people or situations,make sure you hold back from character assassination and blaming othersfor problems because it won't do you any favours! If you accidentallydo "break" this rule, apologise and explain what you "really" meant.

6. Not Being Prepared

Re-readthe relevant version of your CV and the job advert, just before theinterview. You'd be surprised how many people can't remember what theywrote on their CV. And if you remember what type of person the jobadvert was looking for, it's easier to demonstrate that you have thosequalities.
Makesure you've brought with you anything you were asked for. It's fine tobring a note-pad and pen, but make sure they're tidy. It's even ok tobring notes with you; particularly if you have any questions you wantto ask. It shows you're taking the job application seriously.Ill-prepared candidates rarely get job offers.

7. Appearing to be too nervous, or too confident
Ifyou appear too nervous they'll think you're not confident enough to dothe job. However, appearing too confident will make them think youwon't fit into the team. If interview nerves are an issue for you, it'sworth getting practical help from a professional, such as an interviewcoach.

8. Making a weak first impression
Unfortunately,no matter how hard the interviewer tries, a lot of "don't want to hirethem" decisions are made in the first few minutes of contact. If youmake a strong first impression, the interviewer will be more inclinedto overlook "imperfections" in your answers.

9. Not having researched the company

Asa general rule, the more famous the brand, the more they will expectyou to have done your homework. Researching the company shows you'reserious about the job.

10. Putting your foot in it and not noticing

Yes,we know, you didn't mean to put your foot in it. But it doesn't reallymatter what you intended. What counts is how the other person reacts.So what can you do? Be prepared to simply say "sorry, that's not what Imeant!" This requires you to actually be paying attention to theinterviewer, rather than your own thoughts and feelings. Once you'veapologised, leave it there, take a deep breath to help you relax andmove on with the job interview.
