The Jio Prime subscription, which was announced last year to provide Reliance Jio users access to special plans with additional data benefits and other offers like free access to company’s suite of content apps, will come to an end on Saturday, March 31. Jio Prime was introduced in February last year when the operator finally launched its paid services, ending a six-month period of free access for all its users. Irrespective of when you bought your Rs. 99 Jio Prime membership, it is valid till March 31, 2018, meaning that subscribers of the Mukesh Ambani-backed operator would find their Prime membership expiring this Saturday. Here’s a look at Jio Prime, and what may happen next.
While announcing that the company has amassed 100 million users in less than 180 days, Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani launched the Jio Prime subscription based service last year.
Prime users were to be given additional data at the same prices compared to non-Prime members. Somewhere down the line, Prime membership became a requirement for all popular Jio plans, and if you didn’t already have one, it would automatically be added to your number, if you were recharging your Jio number from the official app or website.
With the Prime subscription ending later this week, we can expect the operator to make an announcement regarding it in the next few days. This could either be a continuation of Prime services for another Rs. 99 for another year, or a small increase in subscription fee. Needless to say, with Prime memberships ending March 31, 2018 even if you buy one today, it would be a terrible time to be buying one right now. Jio customer care told Gadgets 360 that validities of ongoing packs will continue even after the current Prime membership ends, meaning if you’ve already applied multiple recharges to your account, you don’t need to worry about being impacted by any future changes to recharges you’ve already done.
The Prime subscription is essential if you want to benefit from the offers the company provides from time to time, such as the Rs. 50 discounts on recharge packs with daily data allocations. Similarly, the Jio promise to offer data tariffs 20 percent lower than the nearest competitor works out for Prime users only. Moreover, the access to content apps, which the operator values at Rs. 10,000 for the whole year, comes only with plans for which Prime subscription is a pre-requisite. Jio’s suite of apps includes Jio TV, Jio Music, Jio News, etc. However, despite the membership, customers are still required to purchase separate recharge packs with validities to use the network.

The Income Tax (I-T) Department today said it “trusted” the taxpayers and asked them to file their returns without “fear” by March 31, the deadline for all companies and those who deposited “large amounts of cash” post demonetisation. The department and the CBDT (its policy-making body), in a public advertisement, said “We trust you.” “So why fear? File your income tax return now,” it said. The tax department buttressed its statement by saying that it selects “less than one per cent returns for scrutiny or investigation” and that the system to select these cases is totally computer-based and devoid of any human interface.
The advertisement said it was the final call for taxpayers who have to file belated or revised ITRs for assessment years 2016-17 and 2017-18.
“If you have deposited large amounts of cash in your bank account/made high value transactions, please consider the same while filling your ITRs. “Non-filing or incorrect filing of return of income may result in penalty and prosecution,” the public advisory said. The government had declared the demonetisation of the existing Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 currency notes on November 8, 2016.
The advertisement also cautioned eligible trusts, political parties and associations to file their income tax returns by the final deadline. Individuals and Hindu Undivided Families having income of over Rs 2.5 lakh and senior citizens with income of over Rs 3 lakh (60-80 years of age) and Rs 5 lakh (over 80 years of age), too, need to file their returns for the mentioned assessment years by March 31, it said. It urged the taxpayers to file their returns “easily and securely” over the official e-filing web portal of the department.

With the income tax filing deadline getting extended to August 5, most of the tax payers must have done their return filing. However, income tax return filed by a taxpayer is not treated as valid until it is verified by the taxpayer. Earlier taxpayers used to verify the return using digital signature or by sending the signed ITR-V form to the Centralized Processing Centre, Bengaluru, of the Income Tax Department. But now the Income tax department has introduced e-verification of returns as an alternative for ITR-V. Taxpayers who are not mandated to use the digitally signed certificate are eligible for e-verification, the tax department said. (Once a return is e-filed, the income tax department sends the ITR-V to the registered e-mail id.)
Taxpayers can e-verify the return at the time of uploading the ITR form. In case the tax payer has already uploaded the return, he can still e-verify the same through “e-File >e-Verify Return” option after login. There are six methods available to e-verify the return.
1) Through Electronic Verification Code (EVC) received on registered mobile number and e-mail.(EVC is a 10-digit alphanumeric code which can be generated through e-Filing portal and is valid for 72 hours).
2) Through Aadhaar OTP
3) By login to e-Filing through net banking
4) EVC – Through Bank Account Number
5) EVC – Through Demat Account Number
6) EVC – Through Bank ATM
How to e-verify your ITR
Taxpayers are provided with four options to e-verify their ITR. Go to “e-File ->e-Verify Return” on the e-filing website. You will find the following four options.
Option 1: “I already have an EVC to e-Verify my return.”
Under this option, you need to enter the pre-generated EVC in the provided text box and click “submit” to e-verify. After you do that, success message will be displayed, which means tax filing is complete.
Option 2: “I do not have an EVC and I would like to generate EVC to e-Verify my return.”
If the taxpayer’s income is less than 5 lakhs and if, refund/demand is less than or equal Rs. 100 and e-mail id and mobile number registered is unique in e-filing profile, then the four options will be shown to the taxpayer to generate the EVC.
You have to select the appropriate option to generate the EVC. The income tax department has issued a user manual to facilitate e-verification of ITR. For more details on the above four steps of e-verification you can see the manual.
Option3: “I would like to generate Aadhaar OTP to e-Verify my return”
To generate Aadhaar OTP, Taxpayer’s PAN and Aadhaar must be linked. An OTP is generated and sent to the mobile number registered with Aadhaar. Enter the OTP and click “submit” after which success page will be displayer.
Option 4: “I would like to send ITR-V/ I would like to e-Verify later’
If the taxpayer is not able to e-Verify the return at the time of uploading the ITR because of any reason then tax payer can choose Option 4. Download the ITR-V, sign it manually and send it to CPC through post within the time limit of 120 days from date of upload for your return to be treated as a valid return.

New Delhi: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Saturday refuted reports about a fresh data leak of Aadhaar holders, and asserted that there has been “absolutely no breach” of its database.
The statement comes after ZDNet, a technology news portal cited a security researcher’s claim to state that a system of state-owned utility firm was allegedly leaking information on Aadhaar holders.
In a statement issued in New Delhi, UIDAI, the Aadhaar-issuing body, said, “There is no truth in this story as there has been absolutely no breach of UIDAIs Aadhaar database. Aadhaar remains safe and secure”.
It termed the data breach claims as “totally baseless, false and irresponsible”.
“UIDAI today has refuted reports in a certain section of media sourced from the news website ZDNet which has quoted a person purportedly claiming to be a security researcher that a state-owned utility company has vulnerability which can be used to access a huge amount of Aadhaar data including banking details,” UIDAI said in its statement.
The UIDAI has argued that even if the report claims were taken to be true, the security related concerns should be around the database of utility company in question. It has “nothing to do with security of UIDAIs Aadhaar database”, it said.
Going by the logic of the report, since the utility company’s database also had bank account numbers of its customers, would bank databases also be considered to have been breached, UIDAI questioned.
“The answer would obviously be in negative,” it added.
UIDAI argued that mere availability of Aadhaar number with a third person “will not be a security threat to the Aadhaar holder” nor will it lead to financial or other fraud. This is because a transaction is contingent upon a successful authentication through fingerprint, Iris or OTP of the Aadhaar holder, UIDAI said.
The ZDNet report had claimed that “a data leak on a system run by a state-owned utility company can allow anyone to download private information on all Aadhaar holders, exposing their names, their unique 12-digit identity numbers, and information about services they are connected to, such as their bank details and other private information.”
The report of the alleged security lapse comes at a time when a Constitutional bench of the Supreme Court is hearing a clutch of petitions challenging the Aadhaar Act and the use of biometric identifier in various government and non-government services.
Earlier this week, UIDAI CEO Ajay Bhushan Pandey had made a powerpoint presentation in the Supreme Court to defend the government’s ambitious Aadhaar scheme. He had said that breaking Aadhaar encryption may take “more than the age of the universe for the fastest computer on earth.”
