And the 19-year-old made a humorous reference to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s celebrity status – noting his tattoos and suggesting that meeting him was more exciting to some than the citizenship.

According to the Gospels,some temple guards had guided to arrest the Jesus Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane by one of the disciples of  the Jesus Christ called Judas Iscariot . Judas Iscariot had received at least 30 pieces of the silver for doing such against the Jesus Christ. After getting arrested, Jesus Christ was brought to the Annas (father-in-law of the Caiaphas, a high priest). He was sentenced to death when nothing told in favor of him during the interrogation. During the solemn oath by the high priest “I adjure you, by the Living God, to tell us, are you the Anointed One, the Son of God?” Jesus Christ answered very unclearly that, “You have said it, and in time you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Almighty, coming on the clouds of Heaven.”

Jesus Christ charged for subverting the nation, leading as a king and opposing the taxes to Caesar that’s why he was brought to the Roman governor named Pontius Pilate in the morning. Pontius Pilate told Jewish leaders to judge the Jesus case according to their own law but Jewish leaders were not allowed by the Romans for judging the sentence of death and then the case was referred by the Pontius Pilate to the ruler of Galilee (King Herod) as Jesus Christ was also a Galilee. Jesus Christ answered nothing for many questions of the Herod that’s why he was sent back to Pontius Pilate by the King Herod, where he was not founded guilty.

As Pontius Pilate’s wife saw the Jesus Christ in her last night dreams and told to her husband to no to do any mistake with that righteous man. Pontius Pilate brought the Jesus Christ out from crowd to release him; soon he was charged for another mistake by the chief priests that Jesus Christ was demanded for sentenced to death “because he claimed to be God’s son.” As soon as he heard the statement, Pontius Pilate started fearing and brought Jesus Christ back to the palace in order to known the complete information about him.

Pontius Pilate declared that Jesus was innocent in order to stay away from blame however; he handed over the Jesus Christ for crucifixion to prevent the riot and save his job. He was brought to the execution place or the place of the Skull and crucified on the cross. After his crucifixion the whole land was full of with darkness. He gave up his spirit with loud cry and temple curtain was torn top to bottom because of the earthquake. At the site of crucifixion, it was declared that “Truly this was God’s Son!”

A secret follower of the Jesus Christ named Joseph of Arimathea went to the Pontius Pilate to request the Jesus Christ body. After the confirmation of the death of the Jesus Christ by the Pontius Pilate, it was handed over to his followers. Another follower named Nicodemus wrapped the body of Christ with mixture of spices to be fresh for some days. On the 3rd day (Easter Sunday) he rose from the dead body

Samsung galaxy S8 and S8 plus pre-bookings are open

Samsung has unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, at its “Unpacked 2017” event in New York.

Sporting an all-glass design, curved screen, digital home button and wireless charging, the Galaxy S8 is set to go head-to-head with Apple’s iPhone 7 – and the iPhone 8 when it launches later this year.

Whether you bought a Galaxy Note 7 and were forced to return it due to overheating issues, or you’ve simply been holding out on an upgrade to see what Samsung has in store, the Galaxy S8 is unlikley to disappoint with its roster of high-end specs.

The new device has an all-glass body, and is slim and long compared to most modern smartphones, designed to be held in one hand.

The Galaxy S8 comes in two sizes – the S8 with a 5.8-inch display, measuring 148.9 x 68.1 x8.0 mm, and the S8+ with a 6.2-inch display, measuring 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm.

The reason for the Galaxy S8’s unusual shape is its ultra-wide display, which has an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 rather than the conventional 16:9, and extremely narrow bezels around the edge of the screen.

Samsung describes the display as “Quad HD+”, which is the same classification as the recently launched LG G6 , and translates to a screen resolution of 2960×1440 pixels.

It is also the world’s first mobile device certified by the UHD Alliance as “Mobile HDR Premium”, meaning it lets you see the vibrant colours and contrasts that filmmakers intended while watching your favourite shows.

The Galaxy S8 features a 12-Megapixel “Dual Pixel” camera on the back, for improved low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos, and an 8-Megapixel selfie camera with smart autofocus on the front.

It has an IP68 rating, which means it is water resistant to a maximum depth of 1.5m for up to 30 minutes, and is protected from dust, dirt and sand without the need for extra caps or covers.

The Galaxy S8 boasts the industry’s first 10nm chip, which Samsung claims enables heightened speed and efficiency. It also contains 6GB RAM and 64GB of in-built storage, expandable up to 256GB with a MicroSD card.

Both devices run the latest version of Google’s operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat .

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 come with a new artificially intelligent personal assistant called Bixby .

Like Apple’s Siri, Bixby responds to spoken commands, allowing users to control their phones with their voices alone.

However, Samsung claims that Bixby offers a “deeper experience” than other voice agents or assistants in the market.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will launch in the US on 21st April.

It will release in UK and Europe along with the worldon April 28.

CUSTOMS CIRCULAR-Part 2

CUSTOMS CIRCULAR   No. 12/2017-Cus,  Dated 31st  March, 2017

In previous blog we have seen that because of customs circular no:- 12/2017-Cus,  companies may face problem and have to pay huge fine for not filing BoE within time limit because of not obtaining procurement certificate. Oh! I am safe then.. Products or samples or parts I am importing do not require any procurement certificate!” If you are thinking so.. wait.. if your supplier sending you material through CIF mode , better you should be ready to pay fine for late BoE.

Why??

Yes let’s see it with an example.

Suppose your supplier send your packet through the courier company where you do not have an A/C like DHL, FedEx, TNT, Aramax. You do not have any idea of when the packet is dispatched, through which courier company, when it’s landing in India etc. In this case courier companies do not know who you are or your company. When shipment lands here in India they ask you to give KYC. If the flight landing time is in the late night they will call you next day morning and ask for KYC documents. It may be the situation that you can’t submit the documents immediately.

If you can’t submit KYC documents in time it will be late filing of BoE and you end up with paying unnecessary fine to customs.

Clarification regarding legislative changes relating to Customs Act, 1962 proposed in the Finance Bill, 2017

 

Kind reference is invited to proposals in the Finance Bill, 2017 relating to amendments in sections 46 and 47 of the Customs Act, 1962. These changes would come into effect upon enactment of the said Finance Bill.

Clarifications have been requested regarding applicability of the new provisions vis-a-vis arrival of goods and filing of bill of entry.

 

Changes in Section 46 of the Customs Act:-

The amendments in the section are aimed at prescribing a late charge for delayed filing of Bill of Entry (BoE). As per the amended Section 46 the importer shall present the bill of entry under sub-section (1) of section 46 before the end of the next day following the day (excluding holidays) on which the aircraft or vessel or vehicle carrying the goods arrives at a customs station at which such goods are to be cleared for home consumption or for warehousing. The free period for filing a BoE is up to the end of the next day following the day (excluding holidays) of arrival of goods at the place where the clearance for home consumption or warehousing is to take place.

 

In this regard, Board has amended Bill of Entry (Electronic Integrated Declaration) Regulations, 2011 and Bill of Entry (Forms) Regulations, 1976 to prescribe late charges for delayed filing. Entry Inwards date at sea ports and date of arrival of cargo at the ICD, airports, Land Customs stations etc would be the relevant date for determining the said charges, if any. It has also been clarified in both the regulations that no charges for late presentation of Bill of Entry shall be liable to be paid where the goods have arrived before the enactment of Finance Bill, 2017.

[Notification No. 26/20177-Customs (N.T) dated 31.03.2017 and Notification No.27/2017-Customs (N.T) dated 31.03.2017 refers].

 

As per customs regulation Customs authority will charge Rs. 5000/- per day fine for late Bill Of Entry Filing.

How this process will go?

Let’s see one example.

Many companies need procurement certificate to clear their shipment at port. If we consider that a company gives pick up order to Unique Air Express on Monday  at 2:00 pm from Singapore, Unique Air Express will do same day collection and give your company Air Way Bill no. At 5:00 pm and connect shipment to the flight no: 9W-011 departure time 8:05 pm, it will land at Mumbai airport at 10:40 pm same day, air lines will file IGM (Import Goods Manifest) same day. So custom authority will start counting your day for Bill of entry filing from 10:40 pm. You have Monday night and Tuesday to obtain procurement certificate and deliver it to us at our Mumbai office for filing process. This seems practically difficult to individual company.
