Income tax, Interest rates and Adani
I’ve been swamped with work this week, and I’m going to be travelling next week. So I couldn’t write an article for today. But I do have a fun fact at the end of this article for you to enjoy 😉
Also, here are a few newsletters that I wrote this month which you can refer to:
RBI increased the repo (or interest) rate this month. Read about How interest rates affect you
The budget revised the new tax regime from the coming year onwards. Taxation is tough - we all know this. So I curated a newsletter that tells you everything about taxation and helps you Understand your tax liability in 30 seconds
Lastly, every day we read about the Adani fiasco. So I wrote about what happened with Adani and how the Adani news may impact you. Check it out!
Also, I would love it if you guys could reply to this email and tell me what other topics you’d want to read about. I’ll be more than happy to write about topics that our readers want to read!
And here’s the fun fact!
Just this week, I read about what the origin of the word SALARY was.
And it was quite surprising to know that the word SALARY comes from the Roman word SALARIUM, which literally means SALT.
You see, back when the barter system was prominent, Roman soldiers were paid in SALT. This monthly allowance was called “SALARIUM”, and this word slowly evolved to “SALARY” in English.
This is also where the phrase “being worth one’s salt” comes from. Soldiers who performed well, were “worth the salt they were paid”.
Seems like there’s a lot more to learn about the history of salt in addition to the Dandi March 😁
