iPhone 8 Exclusive: Specification, New Changes and Price.

What you see above is a finalised hardware design. An enlarged, elongated 5.8-inch display is surrounded by dramatically reduced bezels of approximately 4mm on all sides, the theory being the iPhone 8 won’t be as prone to accidental input like the Infinity and Edge displays on Samsung’s premium Galaxy smartphones.

You will also see a new bottom edge render confirming Apple will not bring back the headphone jack after its controversial removal from the iPhone 7. Despite rumours to the contrary, the Lightning port also remains (though USB Type-C may feature on the wall plug as part of a wider move to finally adopt fast charging).

Another carry over from the iPhone 7 will be stereo speakers via a combination of the bottom speaker and an amplified earpiece.

Falling in line with my exclusive renders last week, Apple will definitely enlarge the power button. Exactly why remains unclear, but it is thought this is to give Apple a ( patented ) fallback option for Touch ID should it not manage to integrate this into the display. As it stands there is no firm word on which way this will go. The technology for screen integration exists, but scaling it to 10s of millions of units is the challenge.

What also remains uncertain is how Apple will redesign iOS 11 to accommodate the ‘cutout’ at the top of the display which exists to accommodate the front facing camera and sensors.

What Nodus and I believe is the remaining corners will simply be used for connectivity and battery status with notifications switched to the bottom in a new easier-to-reach and more detailed ‘ Function Area ’.

In addition, while our renders confirm the iPhone 8 has a dual rear camera with new vertical alignment, the exact configuration and resolution of the lenses is unknown. I’d expect Apple to stick with 12MP wide-angle and telephoto modules but make technical improvements – particularly aperture in the latter.

Finally – and not shown in the renders – I understand battery life will improve significantly. This will be due to a new L-shaped battery configuration that should deliver iPhone 7 Plus-beating stamina, but in a significantly smaller chassis.

The downside to all these improvements will be price.

The iPhone 8 will be Apple’s most expensive iPhone ever and I’m hearing pricing will startfrom $1,100 to $1,200. Some sources claim Apple will only offer the top two storage tiers (128GB, 256GB) but I don’t have enough information to corroborate this.  And yet despite a mammoth asking price and despite the fact there will three new iPhone models launching in September, it is fast becoming clear the dreams of Apple fans will only centre around one of them.

GST tax India online payment step by step procedure

The report has dealt with the issues like, #GST tax collection, Uniform system of banking arrangements, Format of Challan of GST, accounting procedure for central and state Govt. for GST.( www.gst.gov.in.)


There may be two different challans, one for payment of GST and other is for payment of non-GST taxes. The proposed GST #Payment #process should have following features:

  1. Use of only electronically generated challan.
  2. Anytime, anywhere mode of payment of taxes.
  3. Online payment of taxes
  4. Minimum and logical tax collection data
  5. Faster remittance of revenue to the Government
  6. Paperless transactions
  7. Speedy Accounting and reporting
  8. Electronic reconciliation of payment receipts
  9. Simplified procedure by banks
  10. Data base of Digital Challans

The three proposed mode of payment for GST are as follows:

  • Internet banking and debit/credit cards of authorized banks
  • Over the counter payment through authorized banks
  • Payment through NEFT/RTGS from any bank.

However, there is a limit of Rs. 10,000/- per challan, for over the counter payment through authorized banks.

Internet banking and debit/credit cards of authorized banks

Step 1:   User will have to log in to the website of GST or there is option to pay taxes without log in like in present service tax payment system.

Step 2: If User choose to log in then the basic details will get automatically filled. Otherwise user will have to fill the basic details if wants pay taxes without registration.

Step 3: After that user will have to fill the tax details.

Step 4: User has the option to save the challan and fill it at later. A saved challan can be edited before finalization.

Step 5: Then the user will generate the challan for payment. The challan will have 14-digit unique code (CPIN) to identify it.

Step 6: There is option to pay the taxes immediately or the challan can be used for 7 days (for mode 1 & 2 payments) or 30 days (for mode 3 payments).

Step 7: Finally after making the payment, the CPIN ( 17 digit code) will get converted to CIN ( a 17 digit code). A three digit bank code will get added to CPIN.

Step 8: Upon successful completion of the payment, a copy of paid challan will be available for save and print.

Over the counter payment through authorized banks

The user will follow the same first five steps as in case of payment by “Internet banking and debit/credit cards of authorized banks” to generate the challan. Then he can submit the challan with the various authorized banks where he need to pay the amount.

Payment through NEFT/RTGS from any bank.

The user will follow the same first five steps as in case of payment by “Internet banking and debit/credit cards of authorized banks” to generate the challan. The challan will have unique CPIN number. User will have log in to their bank account and make the payment using the CPIN number by NEFT/RTGS.

Challan correction mechanism

The payment procedure is not difficult and seems to be very simple as it is with various current tax payment systems like income tax, TDS, service tax etc. The user face difficulties when some error is made by the user like choosing the wrong section for payment or furnishing wrong details like assessment year etc. To correction mechanism of these mistake should be easy and simple.

  • Error in goods and service tax identification number (GSTIN): These type of error are made by representative (like CA) paying tax on behalf of taxpayer. Since taxpayer can directly pay tax by logging in, where the chances of wrong  GSTIN are zero. Whereas the representative can directly pay tax on behalf of taxpayer from GST website without logging in.  There is no correction mechanism provided for these type of error and the representative will be responsible for such errors.
  • Error in major heads: As we know the GST will be divided between central and state governments so right head should be mentioned in the challan. It is proposed to permit banks to rectify such errors before the end of the day during which the amount has been received by the bank.
  • Error in total amount: If the amount paid is in excess of the liability, then there is a mechanism for refund or credit forward of the excess paid amount. No correction mechanism in the challan is needed.
GST Registration Window reopens

GST Registration window has reopened for migration of registration and fresh registration as Taxpayer, Tax Deductor, Tax Collector ( E commerce) and GST Practitioner.

The GSTN has also set up two call centres – for Taxpayers – 0120-4888999 and for Tax Officials – 0124-4479900.

Steps to Link Aadhaar Card with PAN In Minutes.

Steps To link Aadhaar card with PAN card, the Income Tax Department has launched a new facility to complete the process quickly. The government, under the Finance Act 2017, has made it mandatory for taxpayers to quote Aadhaar or enrolment ID of Aadhaar application form for filing income tax returns (ITR). Also, Aadhaar has been made mandatory for applying for PAN or permanent account number with effect from July 1, 2017. “Taxpayers are requested to use the simplified process to complete the linking of Aadhaar with PAN immediately. This will be useful for E-Verification of Income Tax returns using OTP sent to their mobile registered with Aadhaar,” the Income Tax Department said in an email to taxpayers.

Here’s the process to link Aadhaar with PAN in 10 steps:

1) The income tax department’s e-filing website – incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in – has a new link on its homepage for connecting Aadhaar with PAN of a taxpayer.

3) The link requires a person to key in his or her PAN number, Aadhaar number and the “exact” name as mentioned on the Aadhaar card.

5) The OTP will be sent on the registered mobile number of the individual as provided in the Aadhaar database.

6) The Income Tax Department has urged taxpayers to ensure that details like date of birth and gender in PAN and Aadhaar are exactly the same, to ensure linking without failure. (Also readAadhaar-enabled payments double)

7) In rare cases where the name mentioned on the Aadhaar card is completely different from that on PAN, the linking attempt will fail and the taxpayer will be prompted to change the name in either of the two databases, the tax department said.

8) The tax department introduced the new simplified system after receiving complaints that taxpayers who had used initials in one and full name in the other were not able to link the two unique identities.

9) The tax department also said that the facility to link Aadhaar is also available after logging into the e-filing website under the Profile.

10) Till now over 1.18 crore Aadhaar numbers have been linked with PAN database, a report by news agency Press Trust of India said.
