In view of the security alert issued by the Centre to all airports, Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport on Saturday advised passengers to report early.

It has also indefinitely banned the entry of visitors, an airport spokesman said.

Following the tension on the India-Pakistan border earlier this week, a red alert was sounded at all airports across the country.

The police stepped up security with additional barricades to check vehicles entering the airport area while the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), responsible for airport security, put additional measures in place, the spokesman said.

Interview : Jagan Dream to become CM of Andhra

No Comments

YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said the 3,000 km-long Praja Sankalpa Padayatra that he has undertaken will give people a “sense of hope”.

Reddy, speaking at the India Today Conclave 2019, said he wants to become the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh as he wants to “stay alive after death”.

“I have a dream to become CM of Andhra Pradesh and the very purpose for that is I want to stay alive after death. For that I need to do so much good to the people. Padaytra transforms you into something different that gives you hope that you want to do something,” Reddy said.


Speaking about his position in politics at a national level, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said he does not see himself in politics at a national level and that both the national parties, Congress and BJP, have done nothing for Andhra Pradesh.

On special status for Andhra Pradesh, YSR Congress party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said their only demand was a special category status for the state. “We are sick and tired of trusting people. They promise but not deliver. We are keeping our options open,” he said.

Speaking about 15 cases filed against him, including a disproportionate assets case, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that there were no cases against him when his father was alive.

On joining the Congress, Jagan Mohan Reddy said the party has evaporated from Andhra Pradesh. We don’t need them. It is the Congress that needs us,” Reddy said on the second day of the India Today Conclave.

“Our interest is clear. We are not against Rahul Gandhi or any other leader, but we have lost trust. We now want to keep our options open, he added.

On airstrikes by the Indian Air Force in Balakot, Jagan Reddy said Prime Minister Narendra Modi did score a point. “The Prime Minister exhibited a strong political will which made a difference,” Reddy said.

Jagan Mohan Reddy said as a representative of Andhra Pradesh, both Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi stabbed him. “The Prime Minister deprived Andhra Pradesh of the special category status. He didn’t honour his commitment. And Congress shouldn’t have bifurcated the state,” Jagan Reddy said.

No Comments

Notwithstanding the general euphoria in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi following the Indian Air Force attack on Pakistan, Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief N Chandraababu Naidu continues his attempts to create an anti-Modi atmosphere across the state.

For a second time, Naidu called for “blacking out” of Modi visit to the state to address a rally at Visakhapatnam on Friday night.

He asked his party leaders and activists to protest against Modi by wearing black shirts and put up black hoardings and boards everywhere.

Naidu also wore a black shirt to register his protest and directed that the party leaders conduct a dharma porata nirasana in a massive way across the state by wearing black badges, sporting black flags and balloons all over.

He said Modi had done great injustice to the state. He cheated the beliefs of the people and Modi’s visit was like rubbing salt to their wounds, Naidu said, adding till Modi left the state, the dharma porata nirasana would continue.

He alleged that Modi had done great injustice to the state by declaring Visakhapatnam railway zone without Waltair division.

“It is a conspiracy to declare a zone without the revenue. Our revenue is given to Odisha,” he alleged.

Did you know South actress Tamannaah Bhatia includes has a no-kissing clause as part of her contract? And did you also know that she would totally make an exception for none other than Hrithik Roshan? In a recent episode of Famously Filmfare (Tamil), Tamannaah made the confession and said: “I don’t kiss on screen, basically. So, that’s actually a part of my contract. I keep joking with my friends. But Hrithik Roshan… yay! I would, I would.” Sharing her experience of a chance meeting with Hrithik some time in the past, Tamannaah said she totally had a fan-girl moment and behaved quite awkwardly in front of Hrithik.
On the show, Tamannaah said: “I met him recently. I bumped into him and I was like ‘So stupid!’ I was like ‘Hi, I am a big fan and so nice to meet you!’ And he was like ‘Okay!’ I didn’t know what else to say. Then he walked a little and he looked back and he was like: ‘Do you want a picture?’ And I was like, ‘Yes! I want a picture!'”

YSRCP chief YS Jagan has decided to follow in the footsteps of TRS chief and Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao in announcing the candidates for all Assembly seats at one go.

YSRCP party sources said Jagan has decided to declare candidates for all the 175 seats a day after EC issues Assembly polls notification.

This would mean that the muhurat of YSRCP candidates announcement will depend on the date on which EC will issue poll notification.

Though the list is ready with Jagan, it is learnt that he wants to release within 24 hours after EC notification and not prior to that.

Soon after announcement of list, Jagan has deciced to embark on a ‘bus yatra’ for campaigning covering all the 175 seats.

Jagan is learnt to be fully confident of YSRCP coming to power and he becoming CM of AP this time believing that a huge ‘anti-TDP wave’ is sweeping across AP.

Last time, Jagan lost power just with a margin of 2 per cent votes to TDP  but this time all surveys predict a comfortable victory for YSRCP.

For income tax refunds, check if your bank account is linked to PAN.

The Income Tax department wants you to link your PAN with your bank account and also validate it online
The I-T department will issue only e-refunds to bank accounts which are linked to PAN card from today

After making it mandatory to link your PAN CARD with your Aadhaar for filing income tax returns (ITR), the Income Tax department has now also made it mandatory to link your bank account with your PAN card for receiving income tax refunds.

It is likely that you might have already provided your PAN number to your bank while opening the account, but in case you haven’t then you will not get income tax refunds, according to a communication by the I-T department to taxpayers.

The I-T department will issue only e-refunds to bank accounts which are linked to PAN from today, it said. Your bank account can be savings, current, cash or an overdraft, but it has to be linked with PAN.

So far, tax refund were issued in two ways – either directly transferred to the bank accounts of taxpayers or through cheques. Now the department is doing away with the procedure of mailing tax refund cheques.

The Income tax department now wants you not just to link your PAN with your bank account but also validate it over the income tax e-filing website.

How to check if your bank account is linked to PAN:

To check if your bank account is linked to your PAN, log in to the income tax e-filing portal with your user ID and password, go to your profile setting where you will find the option to pre-validate your bank account.

If not done already, the pre-validation can be accomplished easily by providing your bank account name, number and IFSC code.

If your bank is integrated with the e-filing portal, pre-validation will be done directly through EVC and net banking route. If your bank is not integrated, then the income tax department will validate the bank account from the details provided by you.

If you find that your PAN is not linked, then provide your PAN details to your bank branch.
