How and to whom the Rs. 50 Crores LBT Amendment is Applicable?

Maharashtra Provincial Municipal Corporations Act, 1949, is the Act under which levy of LBT (Local Bodt Tax) is being made in certain municipal corporations w.e.f. 1st April 2013, replacing Octroi in certain cities in Maharashtra. This Act is now known as The Maharashtra Municipal Corporations Act (Act No. LIX of 1949).

In exercise of the powers conferred by the above Act, the Government of Maharashtra, made rules vide Notification No. LBT-0209/CR-65/09/UD-34, dated 25th March 2010 namely “Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporations (local body tax) Rules, 2010”. These rules are now known as The Maharashtra Municipal Corporation (Local body Tax) Rules, 2010. The Government of Maharashtra has now come with a Notification No. LBT- 2015/CR-47/UD-32 dated 23rd July 2015, which amendments the LBT Rules, 2010. This amendment can bring some cheer to the trading community which was protesting and fighting for the abolition of the LBT in Maharashtra.

Learning Better Skills

Learning is a continuous and an ongoing process. It seems the whole life is a learning process. It definitely begins somewhere but never ends anywhere. The old ideas become useless. The old technologies become redundant. The old processes become ineffective. It seems everything is in a transition.
The whole organization is built on the foundations of 5 pillars. The 5 pillars of an organization are: People, Products, Processes, Promotions, and Profits. They are all interconnected and inseparable. The effective churning of the first four processes culminate into the fifth. We can not achieve profit. But yes we can aim towards profit. Profit is nothing but the by-product of the efficient and effective use of the first four processes. And one process affects the other. They all are interdependent
All the above elements have their own life cycles. Old products die and new products come in. Old ideas die and new ideas come into existence. Old processes become ineffective, and dynamic and …

Innovation and creativity is the key

This is really an exciting news. According to a new survey 40% of Americans believe that the next Bill Gates would come from India or China. The World Economic Forum has reported that the US has lost its global competitiveness ranking while India, China and Brazil have gained. This is really an amazing development. The sad part of the story is that 74% of Americans said it was unlikely the US would regain its status next year. This is a sad part for the simple reason that it is a psychological defeat. A vast majority, about 96% of Americans believe that innovation was critical to the future success of the US as a world economic leader. And nearly 60% Americans agreed that the rising national deficit would have a “major impact” on the prosperity of future generations. 
This is really a sad part that the national deficit is a major concern for majority of the nations. This is a consequence of bad governance and ineffective economic management of the country. This applies to many nation…

Creativity Dr. Bono Style

Dr. Edward De Bono visited India in September, 2007. His visit has been of an immense value to many organizations. He talked on the importance of creativity and innovation. I really do not know how many organizations have started realizing the importance of creativity at their work places. Just to speak in few words, Dr.Edward De Bono is a creativity Guru, and an outstanding man accredited with 74 books to his credit. He is a “lateral thinking” Guru and an inventor of “Six Hats Theory”. He has been traveling all over the world and speaking and advising hundreds of organizations on creativity and generating newer business ideas on the strengths of creativity and lateral thinking. Lateral thinking means to think in an unconventional way. What they say in the management parlance is to “think out of the box”. Are you interested in knowing more about Dr.Bono?
