Free and fair elections crucial to Central African Republics future Security Council

After Gen. Lamine Cissé, the Secretary-General’s Representative for the CAR, gave a briefing on the latest developments, the Council’s President for January, Ambassador César Mayoral of Argentina, issued a press statement saying the 15 members were satisfied that the CAR was moving towards restoring the rule of law and constitutional legality.Last month voters in the CAR approved a new draft constitution to take effect this year, and presidential and parliamentary elections are slated to be staged on 13 February.The press statement stressed that “all necessary steps” must be taken to ensure the elections proceed smoothly or otherwise the CAR’s institutions would be unable to function normally. It added that international donors must help fund the polls as well as meet the impoverished country’s basic humanitarian needs.Council members said they “took note of the difficulties” caused by the decision last week of the CAR’s transitional constitutional court to declare some presidential candidates ineligible for the elections. But they also welcomed the move by Gen. Francois Bozizé, the Head of State, to accept three candidatures that had been excluded by the court.Last month, in his regular report to the Council on the work of the UN Peace-building Office in the CAR (known by its French acronym BONUCA), Secretary-General Kofi Annan said the political and economic fortunes of the nation were gradually improving but human rights abuses continued and the political transition remained fragile.BONUCA has been in operation since February 2000, when it replaced a UN peacekeeping mission. Since it began work there has been a series of rebellions, coups and attempted coups, culminating in the overthrowing of the regime of Ange Félix Patassé by Gen. Bozizé in March 2003. read more

James Wolfensohn to continue as Quartet Gaza envoy – UN spokesperson

The diplomatic Quartet promoting the Middle East peace process – made up of the United Nations, United States, Russian Federation and European Union – has requested that its special envoy for Israeli disengagement from Gaza, James Wolfensohn, continue his duties through the end of March 2006, a spokesperson for the world body said today.The Quartet considers Mr. Wolfensohn essential to help facilitate the recovery of the Palestinian economy as well as to resolve remaining issues associated with the disengagement, Marie Okabe told reporters in New York.Mr. Wolfensohn, formerly President of the World Bank, was appointed in April to help oversee Israel’s planned withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, and to aid in coordinating revitalization efforts once Palestinian authorities take over the area.On that occasion, Secretary-General Kofi Annan welcomed his appointment as an important step towards realizing the vision of the Road Map peace plan devised by the Quartet that lays out mutual steps by the parties toward a secure Israel and a sovereign, democratic Palestine living side by side in peace. read more

At UN Assembly Ugandan President among African leaders highlighting continents unified vision

President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Cia PakTo combat these issues, the General Assembly must be revised so that its role is “strengthened and revitalized,” he said, noting that the role of the UN body has recently become routine. Turning to the Security Council, Mr. Mbasogo warned that the 15-member body would not be able to find lasting salutation if it is not governed by rules that respect international justice and interferes in the internal affairs of States. “These interventions interrupt the genuine democratic process of the affected countries,” the President said, adding that these interruptions further fuel divisions and socio-political instability. We have to clearly differentiate between what supports the democratic process and that which interferes through pressure, leading to intolerance, exclusions and hatred, he added. To combat the Ebola virus, which is now also before the General Assembly, Mr. Mbasogo said that his Government had donated $2 million to the UN World Health Organization (WHO) to fight the disease. The announcement was made at the UNESCO-Equatorial Guinea International Prize for Research in Life Sciences, which was held for the first time in the capital city of Malabo on September 15. Calling for economic and security partnerships, Ugandan President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the first of several African leaders today addressing the high-level opening of the 96th United Nations General Assembly, highlighted the growing potential of investment and partnerships with countries on the continent. Mr. Museveni said that Africa is regenerating and “emerging from the long night of decline” and its countries are becoming “more credible partners with any serious actors beyond our shores.”The Ugandan leader noted that the continent is emerging from centuries of colonialism with a purchasing power of $2.5 billion that is growing at an annual rate of 3.2 per cent.He said Uganda needs and would welcome “investments, trade access, tourists” and security partnerships approved by the African Union from partners, many of whom are UN Member States.While at the podium, Mr. Museveni also lashed out at “pseudo and bankrupt” sectarian ideology of religion, tribalism and chauvinism that has fuelled most of African conflicts and is now causing havoc in the Middle East and North Africa. “Only parasites revel is such schemes,” Mr. Museveni said. “This pseudo-ideology should be banished and treated with the contempt it deserves.” In his address on behalf of Mauritania, President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz also highlighted the many dangers resulting from “the multiplication of hotbeds of tension, terrorism, organized crime and trafficking of drugs, arms and people.” President Idriss Déby Itno of Chad addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Cia Pak”Chad welcomes the organization of the Forum of Brazzaville on reconciliation and inclusive dialogue between the Central African brothers which he took an active part in the search for solutions to the crisis,” he added, also welcoming the inter-Malian dialogue and noting with satisfaction the ongoing reconciliation process in South Sudan to bring the South Sudanese “to smoke the peace pipe.” Mr. Déby said the decision to create such mechanisms as the “African Capacity for immediate crisis response,” or “Regional Force on the African Sahel-Saharan and Central Africa” comes from the desire to block the road to terrorism on the continent. He also urged countries of the Commission of the Lake Chad Basin to take the necessary steps to operationalize the Joint Multinational Force to fight against the terrorist activities of Boko Haram. In his address, President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of the Equatorial Guinea highlighted to the heavy responsibility that the General Assembly bares in finding solutions to the problems of poverty, hunger, violence, piracy and terrorist activity. Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, addresses the general debate of the sixty-ninth session of the General Assembly. UN Photo/Cia PakDespite the establishment of mechanisms by the regional peace and security system, the fight against terrorism remains an international responsibility which calls for a close collaboration.The sudden outbreak of Ebola constitutes another major challenge which needs collective, international action, he noted. “The international community is invited to join Africans in their hopes and legitimate aspirations for peace, security and sustainable development,” the President said, also making a case for reform of the UN Security Council to include permanent representation of the continent. He noted that unlike in 2000, when the Millennium Development Goals were adopted, Africa now “speaks with one voice, seeks to create development to become a healthy area free of scourges, wars and conflicts, and where justice, good governance and respect for human rights prevail.” Some 196 speakers are expected at this year’s annual debate. Meeting on the theme of “Delivering on and Implementing a Transformative Post-2015 Development Agenda,” the speakers include representatives from the 193 UN Member States, as well as the Observer State of the Holy See, the Observer State of Palestine and the delegation of the European Union.In his speech to the Assembly, the President of Chad, Idriss Déby, said his country continued to contribute to peace and reconciliation in Africa, especially in Darfur, Sudan in Mali and the Central African Republic. “This commitment is evidenced by the organization on its territory, of the Amdjaress, Forum for peace and reconciliation between “warring brothers” in Darfur. read more

Goodman students claim second in Canadas oldest case competition

In the end, countless hours of preparation all boiled down to a single 15-minute window.And during those critical moments on an international stage, two Goodman School of Business students proved they work well under pressure.Clara Fennuk and Preya Parikh placed second at the Inter-Collegiate Business Competition hosted by Queen’s University Jan. 18 to 20 in Kingston, Ont.Canada’s oldest and longest-running undergraduate business case competition, the event attracts students from all over the world to compete in accounting, business policy, debate, ethics, finance, human resources, management information systems and marketing categories.Fennuk and Parikh took on the human resources category after successfully passing the preliminary round with their written case analysis they prepared over two weeks in the Fall semester.Based on the written submissions, only a handful of teams — seven at most — are chosen to compete in each category.Fennuk and Parikh’s report advanced them to the final round, which included an in-depth analysis of a complex human resources case — this time, under a time crunch.With the timer counting down from 15 minutes, the pair presented their recommendation after spending five and a half hours in an isolation room where they analyzed the case and prepared a presentation.Case competitions are designed to test students’ problem-solving and oral communication skills through cases that describe real-life challenges faced by companies.For both students, the experience was an exhilarating one that provided them with a chance to network with industry professionals and business executives.In her first two years, Parikh did not participate in any co-curricular activities, but the third-year student from Brampton, who works part-time as a career assistant in Brock’s Career Education office, says she is grateful she had the opportunity to represent the Goodman School of Business at the highly competitive event.“I’m happy I took the leap to try something new this year,” she said. “The result is that we were able to spread Goodman’s name at this competition and that we got to know people from all different parts of the world.”The students were accompanied by faculty coach Todd Green, Associate Professor of Marketing.The success shows that Goodman students are well-equipped to compete on a world stage, says Goodman Dean Andrew Gaudes.“It’s an honour to make it to the final round and it’s certainly an incredible feat to place among the Top 3 finalists of this competition,” he said. “I’m very proud that we’re preparing our students, in this particular case, human resources, for a successful outcome.” read more

The Dodgers Have Triggered The Super Sports Equinox In LA

2018Oct. 28Sun.1? (WS Game 5)1246 2016Oct. 30Sun.1 (WS Game 5)1178 1979Oct. 14Sun.1 (WS Game 5)1337 In case you couldn’t tell, we’re fans of the concept, so the more sports equinoxes, the better as far as we’re concerned. And Sunday’s potential equinox is pretty amazing when you lay it all out: In addition to Game 5 of the World Series, the Rams will play the Packers in football; the Clippers will take the basketball court against the Wizards; and the Kings and Ducks will both be in action on the ice. And while it won’t be recorded in the official FiveThirtyEight sports equinox scrolls, Los Angeles teams will also play two MLS games on Sunday as the Galaxy and LAFC both have matches, though LAFC will be on the road for theirs.Only once before has one city enjoyed a super sports equinox. That came for Phoenix, Arizona, when, on Nov. 4, 2001, the Cardinals, Suns, Coyotes and Diamondbacks all played on the same day.2This was facilitated by an MLB season that stretched into November because of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. Although three of the four lost, the Diamondbacks won Game 7 of the World Series, so no one in Arizona was too bent out of shape. But that time, the Coyotes were visiting the Carolina Hurricanes, so not all of the games actually happened in Phoenix. This time around, though, the Dodgers, Kings, Clippers, Ducks, Rams and Galaxy would all be playing in the LA metro area on Sunday. As far as we can tell, that’s never happened before in the history of sports equinoxes.Naturally, it wouldn’t be an LA story without some kind of traffic analysis. So we enlisted Google Maps to help figure out how a superfan could attend at least part of all the super sports equinox games on Sunday.The Kings game starts first, a 12:30 p.m. PDT puck drop at Staples Center. From there, you’d have to leave after the first period and jump on the 110 south to make it to the LA Coliseum in time to catch the Rams-Packers kickoff at 1:25. Unfortunately, you could only catch a few minutes of that game before having to embark on a 35-minute drive down the 110 south to the StubHub Center in Carson, where you’d miss the beginning of the Galaxy-Dynamo match (which started at 1:30), but at least you’d get to see the second half of action. After that match ends, hop in the car for about 35 minutes on the 91 east to reach Anaheim’s Honda Center, where you have time to pick up a Double-Double before seeing the start of Ducks-Sharks at 5:00 — but no dilly-dallying after that! You’ll need to quickly get back in the car and drive an hour up the 5 north to Chavez Ravine for Game 5 of the World Series. (Since it started at 5:15, you will be arriving with most of the other Dodgers fans — well after 6.) Finally, at some point you’ll drive 15 more minutes from Dodger Stadium back down the 110 south to the Staples Center, where the day started, for Clippers-Wizards, which tipped off at 6:30.Whew. That’s six games and five sports, with between 2 and 3 hours of total driving time. Of course, these Google Maps estimates may seem optimistic for anyone who’s been in a car in LA and knows that it typically takes two hours to drive 2 or 3 miles. But if you’re intrepid enough to try the 78-mile journey, here’s what all of that looks like on the map: Source: Sports-Reference.com 2015Nov. 1Sun.1 (WS Game 5)1275 1972Oct. 22Sun.1 (WS Game 7)1235 1978Oct. 15Sun.1 (WS Game 5)1355 2017Oct. 19Thu.1 (NLCS Game 5)139 The sports equinox isn’t as rare these daysDates on which all four major U.S. sports leagues (MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL) played at least one game YearDateDayMLBNFLNBANHL 2001Nov. 4Sun.1 (WS Game 7)1374 2017Oct. 29Sun.1 (WS Game 5)1173 2009Nov. 1Sun.1 (WS Game 4)1274 2010Nov. 1Mon.1 (WS Game 5)133 2018Oct. 18Thu.1 (ALCS Game 5)139 2009Nov. 2Mon.1 (WS Game 5)153 1971Oct. 17Sun.1 (WS Game 7)1236 1980Oct. 12Sun.1 (NLCS Game 5)1348 number of GAMES 1980Oct. 19Sun.1 (WS Game 5)1336 1973Oct. 14Sun.1 (WS Game 2)1235 1985Oct. 27Sun.1 (WS Game 7)1315 1972Oct. 15Sun.1 (WS Game 2)1236 The city of Los Angeles can’t feel great about the Dodgers’ World Series chances right now, as the team needs to win four of the next five against the Boston Red Sox to seal its first title in 30 years. However, we have good news for you, Los Angeles. The city is only one Dodgers win from making another kind of history: The super sports equinox. If the Dodgers win just one of the next two games at home and force a Game 5, teams representing the city in all four major North American sports will be playing on the same day. And although World Series titles come and go, the super equinox has only happened once before in all of sports history — and LA’s super equinox would come with all its teams at home, which has never happened before.But before we get to all that, allow us to fill in a little background info. A sports equinox is a day when all four major U.S. sports leagues — NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB1Sorry, MLS. Maybe we’ll reconsider when all of Gen Z is old enough to drink. — play at least one game on the same day. It used to be exceedingly rare: Before 2015, there had only been 14 sports equinoxes ever, since it was difficult to find a Sunday or Monday (when NFL teams would be playing) late enough in the year to catch the start of the NBA season but early enough to overlap the end of the World Series.But it’s been getting more and more common with the advent of things like Thursday Night Football and an earlier start to the NBA schedule. Since 2015, there has been a sports equinox every single year, with the potential for two in 2018. We’ve already seen one this year — back on Thursday, Oct. 18, when Game 5 of the ALCS coincided with Broncos-Cardinals, plus 12 other NBA and NHL games. 1973Oct. 21Sun.1 (WS Game 7)1235 UPDATE (Oct. 27,2018, 5:22 p.m.): When the Dodgers outlasted the Red Sox 3-2 in 18 innings Saturday morning, they guaranteed that Los Angeles would indeed play host to a super sports equinox on Sunday. Congrats to LA — and our sympathies to Angelenos who must drive somewhere during the equinox. So while the ordinary old sports equinox might be getting so common that it’s no longer special, these new overlaps in various sports’ seasons should give us even more chances for super sports equinoxes like the one LA might get to experience on Sunday. Now all that’s left is for the Dodgers to actually beat the Red Sox in one of these next few games to make it happen. read more

I dont deserve the same pay as Richard Gere because were not

Helen McCrory has said the co-star of the new BBC drama in which she is starring deserves a higher wage packet than her because they are “not equal”.While many women who work for the BBC have argued in the past that women and men working for the organisation should be paid the same wage for the same job, the 50-year-old actress does not agree in her case.The Peaky Blinders star is due to take a leading role in MotherFatherSon alongside Richard Gere.When asked whether she should be paid the same as Gere, 69, she told the Mail on Sunday:  “This is a really complex issue. It depends. Say you’re making an independent film.”If you think it’ll get bums on seats by using Richard Gere’s name, or it will help you raise the finance to make the film, is then right or not to say: ‘I’m going to give him a million now because I know he’s going to get me £4million at the box office’? That’s the debate that’s raging now.”When asked if she would expect equality to take place on MotherFatherSon, she replied: “No I wouldn’t. If you take the argument that with experience and success comes with increased salary, maybe I believe in reward for longevity. She said: “My agent Nick Forgacs called me up to say there was a fantastic project floating about, but the only names that were reading it were big film stars.“He couldn’t tell me anything about it, nor were they sending it to me, but Nick’s excitement was palpable: ‘If I can get you into the room I think you’ve got a chance… but I’ve got to get you into the room first’.“So we gate-crashed the auditions basically. I was being offered various things during this process – I even declined a lead role in another series purely on the chance of getting this, because Tom Rob Smith’s writing is brilliant and it is one of the most original scripts I’ve ever read.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Richard Gere in the new dramaCredit:Laurence Cendrowicz/BBC She added:  “I suppose if we were of equal status and age… the truth is, I have absolutely no idea how much he was paid. And I’ve no idea how much any of us is paid.”McCrory has spoken out about pay equality in TV and film in the past, saying in 2016: “If you’re doing the same job, indisputably you should have the same money.”McCrory is set to play Kathryn, the aristocratic estranged wife of Gere’s powerful media mogul character Max.The new eight-part drama, the first episode of which will air on BBC2 on Wednesday the 6th March, centres around the family unit, which is reunited when their son Caden, played by Billy Howle, suffers a breakdown.This will be the first time movie star Richard Gere appears in a TV show in 30 years – and the writer of the show said he took some convincing to take the part.Writer Tom Rob Smith has said he had to embark on a “long wooing process” to secure the actor.McCrory, however, said she had to “gate-crash” the auditions in order to get the part. Richard Gere in the new drama “We all know we’re not equal. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t have equal opportunities. But we’re not equal.” read more

Torchlight 2 releasing September 20 with improved skill system

first_imgRunic Games kicked off PAX 2012 in a big way by announcing a release date for Torchlight 2, their long awaited dungeon crawler sequel. The fans that have been begging, pleading, and endlessly tweeting the company for some hint of the game’s arrival can rest easy knowing that it will finally launch on September 20, just a couple of weeks from now.Will it be worth the wait? I’ll have to get my hands on the final product before I can say for sure, but what I saw on the show floor at PAX last weekend was an even cleaner experience than the beta from a few months ago.Runic has taken feedback from beta testers and made some really great changes to the Torchlight 2 experience, the most important of which is a revamped skill system. Beta players didn’t understand the benefit to putting more points into an existing skill, rather than unlocking a new one. So Runic created “tier bonuses” for each ability that unlocks at 5, 10, and 15 points. Each tier bonus adds a unique property to the skill that makes it noticeably more effective.The developers also completely revamped the skill menu, breaking it out of the traditional “tree” format and into a much cleaner, more understandable layout. All four character classes have three tracks of abilities that are separated into tabs on the skill page. Under each tab there are seven active skills along the top and three passive skills along the bottom, all arranged in reading order based on what level is needed to unlock them.Players also asked for a better respec option on skill points. In the beta, characters could only respec until they hit level 10, after which unlocking a new skill meant risking a hard-earned point. Runic compromised by adding a “last three points” respec that’s available at any level. It’s a nice way of encouraging players to experiment without giving them full reign to remake their character.So what’s next for Torchlight 2 now that the developer’s finish line is in sight? The top priorities after launch are additional language packs, releasing the development tools to the community to encourage modding, and porting the game to Mac — not necessarily in that order. Torchlight 2 is available for pre-order on Steam for $20, or $60 for a 4-pack.last_img read more

Une mutation génétique à lorigine de la déficience intellectuelle

first_imgUne mutation génétique à l’origine de la déficience intellectuelleDes chercheurs français ont identifié une simple mutation génétique responsable de la déficience intellectuelle, un handicap héréditaire, selon leurs travaux publiés dans la revue américaine Science datée du 26 août.Une mutation génétique serait à l’origine de 40% des cas de déficience intellectuelle. C’est ce qu’ont pu déterminer des chercheurs en étudiant les cellules de patients ayant un quotient intellectuel inférieur à la moyenne. En effet, la déficience intellectuelle se définit comme “un fonctionnement intellectuel général inférieur à la moyenne, qui s’accompagne de limitations significatives des capacités d’adaptation.” Plus couramment connu sous le nom de retard mental, ce handicap héréditaire atteint près de 3% de la population mondiale, mais les scientifiques n’étaient jusqu’ici pas parvenus à déterminer de facteur génétique précis.À lire aussiMucoviscidose : espérance de vie, symptômes, traitement, de quoi s’agit-t-il ? D’où l’importance de ces nouvelles recherches : l’étude a montré que les cellules de ces patients présentent un défaut d’expression de certains gènes impliqués dans le fonctionnement du système nerveux central. Ces gènes étant modifiés, ils empêchent le développement du cerveau ainsi que sa maturation et son adaptation par l’organisation de réseaux de neurones. “Leur activation rapide est une étape clé dans le développement et la plasticité cérébrale”, explique ainsi Laurence Colleaux, de l’Institut de Génétique et de Biologie Moléculaire à l’université de Strasbourg en France, une des co-auteurs de cette recherche. Elle précise également : “l’étude des patients souffrant d’une déficience intellectuelle sont porteurs de cette mutation qui modifie les protéines impliquées dans la transcription des informations”.D’autres facteurs en cause et d’autres cas inexpliqués Les conclusions de cette recherche représentent une avancée significative et fournissent un nouvel argument en faveur du rôle majeur joué par les anomalies génétiques dans les causes de la déficience intellectuelle : “Cela nous laisse penser que cette anomalie des gènes serait une signature moléculaire de ce trouble”, avance la chercheuse, citée par l’AFP.Néanmoins, l’origine génétique de la déficience intellectuelle n’explique pas tous les cas de ce handicap, car au demeurant 20% d’entre eux peuvent être attribués à des facteurs environnementaux et 40% ont une origine qui reste indéterminée, indiquent les auteurs de l’étude publiée dans la revue Science.Le 29 août 2011 à 13:44 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

The mother and daughter were riding a scooter without helmets, which is illegal.The accident happened just over a month after the San Diego City Council voted against an emergency ordinance that would have banned the motorized scooters on the boardwalk.The 11-year old girl’s father, Dan DeWitt spoke to the San Diego City Council Tuesday about their decision to not place an emergency ban on motorized scooters on the boardwalk last month. “My daughter suffered multiple life-threatening injuries, including a ruptured spleen and internal abdominal bleeding and a head injury. Her mother was knocked unconscious and fractured her skull in multiple places,” DeWitt said. “I plead with you today to reconsider your decision and ban these motorized scooters from your community immediately.Councilmember Lorie Zapf, who has been a major advocate for the failed emergency ban said the following in a statement:“I am saddened to learn of this very serious life threatening scooter accident that happened on the boardwalk involving a child and mother on vacation,”“My office worked with staff to develop an emergency ordinance to address this issue and unfortunately the City Council majority did not support it.

GST on new flats Everything a buyer needs to know about the

first_imgA housing project under construction. The new GST regime seeks to bring relief to both buyers and builders by lowering the tax rates as also allowing them to choose what rates to apply.The confusion regarding the government’s decision to reduce the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on new homes has been finally lifted. The decision to reduce GST on under-construction buildings to 1 per cent and 5 per cent of the cost of construction had raised several questions among builders and buyers. The decision on February was intended to lift the real estate sector out of its long slowdown and give relief to both buyers and builders.The rates in force earlier were 8 per cent for ‘affordable’ houses and 12 per cent for premium ones. Affordable houses are those valued at less than Rs 45 lakh and with a built-up area of up to 60 sqm in the metros and up to 90 sqm in the rural areas including second-rung cities. The notification on the new rates maintains the same classification of ‘affordable’ and ‘premium’ houses. The new GST rate is applicable only on the construction cost, which means the tax calculation excludes the cost of land giving some relief to the buyer.The authorities clarify that there needs to be no confusion regarding projects that began after March 31. On such projects, the new rates of 1 per cent GST on affordable homes and 5 per cent on premium homes are applicable, according to the notification. The builder is not allowed to claim an input tax credit, which means getting a refund on the tax paid while purchasing construction materials and related services.Of course, there has been some confusion lately regarding projects that began before March 31 and remained incomplete until April 1, 2019. The authorities have given the builders the option of opting for the old rate or the new one. If they opt for the old rate (8 per cent and 12 per cent) they will have the option of getting input credit refund, which they can pass on to the customer. Of course, the new rates will not entail them to claim input credit refund.The following are the major points regarding the new GST regime:GST rate: The new tax rate is 1 per cent for affordable houses and 5 per cent for premium houses.Classification: Affordable house is a house or flat costing up to Rs 45 lakhs with the rider that it shall not have carpet area greater than 600 sqm if it is in the designated metro areas or 900 sqm if in the non-metro areas.Cutoff date: April 1. All flats of projects launched on or after April 1 will invite the new rate.Old houses: All flats or houses that got a completion certificate from the relevant authorities on or before March 31 will attract GST at the older rate of 8 per cent on affordable houses and 12 per cent on premium ones.Under-construction projects: The projects that began construction on or before March 31, 2019, or did not receive completion certificate before April 1, 2019, are considered an under-construction project, irrespective of what stage of construction they are at. A labourer stacks concrete blocks on his head at the construction site of a residential complex on the outskirts of Kolkata. The real estate sector is expected to get a boost from the new GST regime that lowers the rates to 1% and 5% for affordable and premium properties. REUTERS/Rupak De ChowdhuriOptions for under-construction projects: The builder can choose the old or new rate for a project under construction. But the input tax credit facility would be available only if the builder chose the older rates of 8 percent and 12 percent.Input tax credit: The builder is allowed to claim a refund of the taxes paid for the construction materials and services. The input tax credit facility is available only if the builder chose the older rates.Commercial properties: The new notification mandates a 5 percent GST rate for commercial space like shops and offices within a residential project. For under-construction projects, buyers may opt for the older 12 percent rate and claim an input tax credit.Payments made after March 31, 2019: If a part of the payment for the under-construction property falls after March 31, 2019, that part will attract the new rate, unless the builder has opted to go for the old rate.last_img read more
