VPN AND ITS WORKING

 It stands for Virtual private network. Generally defined as a private network that uses data encryption and high-level security measures to transfer data privately and safely through a wide area of network i.e.: The Internet. Such types of network are generally preferred by organizations having businesses with several offices in different locations. They have become hugely popular with different organizations as a means of securing and transferring data securely from one end to the other. VPN’S uses a series of combinations of committed connections and encrypted protocols to get virtual P2P connections. VPN’S allows the user to parody the original physical location- the users real IP address is replaced by the VPN provider giving them space to bypass the content filters.

SECURITY PROTOCOLS GENERATED BY VPN:

  1. IP SECURITY: IPsec it is commonly used to secure the internet communications and it has the ability to perform in two different modes. The security level can be increased according to our need through differ combinations.
  2. Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP): Here the IP and the L2TP combine together with their best security level to provide the best layer of security to the Data transfer.
  3. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS): This type of security layers are generally used for the online retailers or the service providers. They work on a Handshake method. An HTTP-based SSL connection is used by the client using certain URL. This generally helps in encryption keys, authenticate the session, and create the secure connection.
  4. Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP): Such protocols have been in use from the early 1990’s and support a huge variety of operating system. The level of security provided by PPTP has been increased by certain protocols; however, the codes remain the same.
  5. Secure Shell (SSH): It creates a VPN tunnel and encryption to protect it. It generally grants the user the permission to transfer Data by Routing the load from remote file servers from encrypted servers. All data flows through specified ports across the ends of the tunnel.

WORKING OF VPN’S:

On a general note VPN generally acts as a bridge between the client software and network access server (NAS). It allows and individual user to get secure connections with the remote computer network.

There are mainly two components required for the remote-access VPN’S:

  1. Network access server (NAS): Also, known as the media gateway. It is a dedicated server that connects the user to internet world to access the VPN. The NSA needs the user to provide original credentials to get access to the VPN. To verify the credentials the NSA generally used the authentication process or a different server is used for this purpose running on the same network.
  2. Remote-access VPNs is client software: This is the one and only software which is required for VPN servers to work. The client software makes up the tunneled connection to a NAS, which the user shows by its IP.

SO, VPN networks are the fastest and-and most secure way of transferring Data from one end to another end without having the fear of Data theft.

 

How can I reduce Income Tax?  

 

Passed by the Parliament of India, a citizen of the country who earns an income is supposed to pay a certain amount of tax. This is popularly known as Income Tax. Nonetheless, not everyone pays the same amount of tax. Divided by categories, people belonging to different social, financial strata pay a different amount of tax, senior citizens pay a separate amount of tax and those regardless of the age, earning less than INR 2, 50,000 have to pay no tax at all!

Categorized or uncategorized, almost all taxpayers are stressed and perturbed when it comes to paying the tax. It is a burden which may be shared amongst the members of a family or even in a small business. To curb this issue committing tax fraud will not be a sought after option.

 Thus ways to Legally Reduce Income Tax is given below:

Smart Payment of Fees –

Being aware of timing, planning ahead will decrease the amount of tax paid. With the non- Individual Retirement Account being tax deductible, a wise decision would be paying all fees through that account, although an Individual Retirement account is present.

Structuring the Salary –

Expenses such as uniform, conveyance, medical insurance, phone bills, newspaper and office entertainment are supplementary with the current job. Rather than discontinuing the job, chatting with the employer about quitting these expenses will save the taxes.

Travel Allowances –

An employer is responsible for granting its employee a travel allowance but only on the production of actual bills. It can be claimed for an economy class of Air Travel or AC-I of Train travel. For the shortest route of travel within India can be paid for.

Deduction on Medical Insurance –

Above the 1.5 lakh limit, the tax can be saved for a family through Health insurance premium. Even visiting the doctor for health checkups up to rs 5,000 can economise taxes. For senior citizens, this service can be extended up to Rs 30,000.

Investments –

Under the section 80C, in order to gain tax rebate, there are multiple investment schemes. Deposition in Employee Provident Fund, Investing in Equity Linked Saving Scheme, with the highest return amongst all saving schemes- investment into Sukanya Samriddhi Account is the best option for a girl child. Even opening a Tax Saving Fixed Deposit account, enrolling into National Saving Certificate scheme or Senior Citizen Saving Scheme can save tax to some extent.

Retirement Plan –

To reap maximum benefits from retirement savings, one needs to plan his retirement out. Making contributions to Roth Individual Retirement Account will benefit at retirement when one has to pay no tax on withdrawal of this money. Or even contributing to Employees Provident Fund through one’s entire work life, will reap profits during retirement!

After putting in all that effort, nobody will like to give in the hard-earned money to the government, and Taxes are unavoidable. Without the help of a professional, just with a tad bit of wise planning, time and patience one can successfully reduce the amount of tax to be paid! So, let that money keep doing its work!

PRADHAN MANTRI SURAKSHA BIMA YOJANA

Our India is a developing country. With the advancement of technology, our country is progressing each day. But still, there is a section of the society, where people are staying in rural areas that are unable to opt for the earlier insurance policies. They have been introduced to the concept of insurance policies which are operated by various banks and post offices a decade ago. But the high premium issues acted as a barrier for them to apply for those accidental insurance schemes. In order to combat this problem, a new insurance scheme was introduced by Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modiji on 9th May 2015.This new scheme came to be known as Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY).The enrolling period for this scheme began on 1st June 2015 and continued until 31st May 2016.

Highlights of the scheme:

1) This PMSBY scheme was introduced by the Government of India that provided a cover of 2lakhs for the family of the scheme holder in case of an accident.

2) The eligible persons who joined this scheme had to pay Rs12 per year.

3) Any person who 18 years or above (till 70) were eligible for this scheme.

4) This accidental insurance is renewable annually by the applicant.

5) Banks like SBI provided an auto debit mode for the deduction of Premium Amount from the bank account of the insurance holder.

6) The amount of Premium to be paid was only 12(INR).

7) The primary KYC for that scheme was Aadhar Card of the applicant.

8) There would be termination of the policy if the applicant attained an age above 70 years.

9) The policy may also be terminated if there was insufficient balance in the account which would provide the premium amount.

Benefits of the scheme:

The premium value was only Twelve rupees which would be affordable by the poor section of the society. Thus, this scheme when introduced, it helped them a lot. This scheme aimed to reach those people after the successful implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana.

Claiming process in the scheme:

The claiming process for the PMSBY scheme is similar to that claiming other insurance policies from either private or government banks. However, one should be ready with the required documents and they need to inform the bank regarding the accident. The claim should be submitted to the bank from which the PMSBY has been bought. Moreover, the claim has to be submitted within 30 days after the accident took place.After the verification is carried out, then the bank would provide the insurance amount to the nominee of the account holder.

The PMSBY insurance scheme proved to be a very powerful weapon to deal with accidental issues for a large number of people.As the Premium amount was very less, so there was a huge enrollment.It provided a recovery of 2lakhs(INR) for the deaths of the people due to accidents and 1 lakh(INR) for those who suffered from a loss of sight of the accident, or loss of hands or legs that caused disability.The participating banks like SBI also follow the same guidelines which are mentioned under the scheme.Thus, it has helped numerous people to look after the family of the deceased people along with the other accident victims.
