Kapil Sharma Debuts in Bollywood

The ultimate comedian Kapil sharma who is rocking in TV industry with his super hit show Comedy Nights with kapil has been approached by Yash Raj Films (YRF) Productions .Kapil Sharma has signed a three-film contract with YRF. He will make his debut with movie” Bank Chor”.
Kapil Sharma confirmed the report in his latest episode of Comedy Nights where Alia Bhatt and Randeep were the guests.

The movie “Bank-Chor” will be produced under the production banner's Youth Films Division Y-Films, which made "Mere Dad Ki Maruti".
"Bank-Chor", directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil, is a comic caper that tells the story of three people who pick a wrong day to rob a bank. What happens when the trio is inadvertently caught in a crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt politicians, forms the rest of the story.
Kapil Sharma is super excited about this movie and says that he has already started “working on the nuances of the character".

Although it will be his first movie but the actor has enough experience in acting. He has done serious theater for years before comedy. Finally with YRF's vision, he would get to do this again after a 12-year break.
"It's a privilege and a dream to be part of the YRF family and have my launch with their Youth Films Studio, Y-Films. The script is the most exciting part since it's the kind of role that's very unlike the stereotype of a comedian or what people could typecast me as," Kapil said in a statement.

It will be super fun to see Kapil Sharma in “Bank Chor” and hope he make us laugh more than he does at “Comedy Nights with Kapil”

New PAN Application Procedures

With a view to reduce fake PAN applications, The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has issued new guidelines for PAN allotment. The new rules are harder and claim to cut down the numbers of forged PAN applications.
The rules laid down by CBDT are as follows:
1.    The PAN application fee has been increased to Rs. 105/-(inclusive of taxes).
2.  Form 03.02.2014 onwards, every PAN application has to submit self attested copies of Proof of Identify (POI), Proof of Address (POA) and Date of Birth (DOB) documents. The applicants are also required to produce original documents of such POI/POA/DOB documents for verification at the counter of PAN facilitation centers.
3.    The copies of Proof of Identity (POI), Proof of Address (POA) and Date of Birth (DOB) documents attached with PAN application form, will be verified vis a vis their original documents at the time of submission of PAN application at PAN facilitation Centres
4.   Original documents shall not be retained by the PAN Facilitation Centres and will be returned back to the applicant after verification.

New PAN Procedures
CBDT Says that the new guidelines will be effective in reducing the FAKE applications but from an applicant appoint of view these can be called as stringent. A new applicant generally hires a Chartered Accountant or other professional to apply for PAN Card. It means the applicant will have to hand over his ORIGINAL documents to the professional doing the application process. It may happen that these documents may not remain safe with the professional. So in this regard the rules are really hard.
It has been guided by CBDT that ORIGINAL documents will be produced in front of PAN facilitation centres for verification. CBDT will have to closely watch if PAN facilitation centres are doing their jobs properly and honestly.
Only the time will tell whether the new framework for PAN application procedures has a positive impact or not.
