As Narendra Modi arrives, @PMOIndia cleans its slate
@PMOIndia, the Twitter handle used by Dr Manmohan Singh, has now become clean like a new one. The old official Twitter handle of Dr Singh is now renamed as @PMOIndiaArchive
 
The official Twitter handle of Dr Manmohan Singh, the outgoing Prime Minister, @PMOIndia has become clean as new. With the Narendra Modi-led government setting to take over the reins, the handle @PMOIndia has been now renamed as @PMOIndiaArchive. The new, cleaned @PMOIndia has zero tweets and it does not follow anyone. However, there are 2,434 followers to this handle.
 
 
@PMOIndiaArchive, on its profile page has 1.24 million followers, 4,506 tweets and it was following 44 persons. Its profile pages says, "Archival material under the RTI Act for @PMOIndia till 20/5/2014. @PMOIndia will be available shortly."
 
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, has criticised the change in handle by the outgoing PM. It says, “Outgoing team wrongly renamed Twitter handle of @PMOIndia with respect to laws and global norms of handover of digital assets.”
 
Now compare this with the Narendra Modi's personal Twitter handle, @NarendraModi. It has 4.22 million followers, 5,141 tweets and follows 1045 on the micro-blogging site.

Alice in wonderland

Congress President Sonia Gandhi tendering her resignation to herself being the President, making all pre-arrangements with her henchmen to request her to continue in the post by withdrawing her resignation is viewed as something unheard of in the history of the world. Are we to take Sonia Gandhi as simple and foolish as "Alice in wonderland" and flinging her cap over the windmill taking India as the looking glass house or playing too clever a game with 120 crores of people in the country making it a nation of political eunuchs ? Certainly she has proved wrong! There is a limit to any type of tom foolery!

LIC Online Term Plan is 15%-40% cheaper than own offline plan
LIC’s much awaited online term plan e-Term has finally arrived. While it may not disappoint you with nearly 15%-40% discount over its own offline product, there is still a gap of 35%-50% over many online term plans. Will you pay a huge premium for the brand LIC?
  
Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) e-Term is an online term plan, which had been in a making for a long time. LIC has finally delivered a product which is cheaper than its offline version, but you will not get the cheapest premium among many other online players. It is positioned at a premium considering the brand and perceived trust LIC brings. If you are non-smoker who wishes to buy online term plan of Rs50 lakh or more, then LIC e-Term will help to save nearly 40% premium when compared to LIC’s offline plan. Even though LIC e-Term key features specify “Differential premium rates for smoker and non-smoker lives”, it is applicable only for sum assured of Rs50 lakh and above.
 
The savings for smokers may be only 15% when compared to LIC 's offline plan. This makes the online version not as desirable for smokers, but it is still worth an option. The key points to consider is that LIC e-Term for non-smokers as well as smokerswill have a premium of 35%-50% higher than many online term plans. It will appeal to those who trust the LIC brand, but cost conscious customers who do not mind private insurers will continue with existing policies by paying lower premium. Term plan is a simple product which provides life insurance without any return of any money at the end of the policy. In case of death of the insured, the nominee is paid the death benefit (sum assured). The core product is same across the insurers and hence premium is one of the important criteria for comparison.
 
Read Moneylife cover story to help you zero-in on a term plan based on 10 factors. Each person is unique and, hence, we cannot go by a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution. Term life insurance is what you need, but most savers are confused about which one to buy. So, they end up without insurance or fall for endowment/ULIPs. http://moneylife.in/article/the-right-online-term-plan/3741 T8.html
