A Comment on Population of China and India

My Comment on an article "At 1.32 billion, India's population may have overtaken China's" published in the Dated 26/05/2017.

"The above article is based on a report published in The Guardian quoting statements of a Chinese Academic, Yi Fuxian, who claims that Chinese population has been overestimated by 90 million and the actual population as in 2016 would not be more than 1.29 billion." 

"But, we have always been taught through established sources that China is the most populated country in the world and India stands next to it with a wide gap. 

Both India and China adapted to family planning measures and so any decrease in China's growth rate must be corresponding to the decrease in growth rate of India also. Therefore, the statements in this article cannot be accepted. Further, it is base only on the assumptions of one Chinese academic and not proved yet.

We may assume that in a far off future, our population may exceed China's population if China becomes more strict in this issue of population control and if India does not take proper steps."

A Comment on the new option available for purchasing new home under EPF Housing Scheme

My Comment on an article "Here is the step-by-step process to withdraw 90% of your PF to buy a home" published in the Dated 12/05/2017. 

"I am very glad to know of this facility available now.

It's a great relief to those employees who cannot afford to arrange funds for the down payment to obtain the housing loan.

Now, one can draw funds from his provident fund to meet the down payment requirement in order to obtain a house loan for purchasing a house."

A Comment on Housing Loans and Affordable Houses

My Comment on an article "Big players entering the affordable housing, housing prices could go down soon: Deepak Parekh, Chairman HDFC Ltd." published in the Dated 02/05/2017.

"Good news. Big Corporates and Developers are showing more interest in housing business with the new facilities offered through RERA act to both builders and customers. Now, builders need not pay tax on notional rent for the first year after obtaining the completion certificate of the building. So, they have one full year to sell their flats without incurring any extra burden.

But, from the viewpoint of the customers, and as myself being a middle-class person, I request our Banks and Government that loan facilities should be extended for the full 100% cost of the house instead of the present 80 or 90 per cent loans. Then only people could be in a position to buy their own homes. Otherwise, it is very difficult for people like me to arrange for even lakh that is essential as the deposit to get a housing loan."
