water purifier

The Indian population as on date is 1.3 billion and growing by the second. And this causes massive scantiness of resources, including that of potable water. It is a well-versed fact that access to safe drinking water has been a grave problem in India. But what if you could find a way to stop this, reduce the spread of waterborne diseases and also other water related problems?

Well, Water Purifiers are the perfect panacea to get rid of all such problems. And if this did not convince you enough, here are some other reasons that will compel you to think why a water purifier for your home is must.

  1. Get Rid of the Bad Chemicals

Get rid of chemical ofwater

The last thing that you want in your water is the taste and smell of chlorine. As you must know, the water before coming to your home is treated with chlorine to dispose off the bacteria and for decontamination. Well, this chlorine can lead to serious health problems. Also, the water, if taken from the groundwater table may also contain lead and arsenic, which can lead to serious poisoning in human beings, even in fact create genetic disabilities to the unborn children.

  1. Removal of Total Dissolved Solids

Removal of Total Dissolved Solids

A water purifier is a must to remove the total dissolved solids (TDS) like nitrates, sulphates, sodium and calcium as the level of TDS can increase by boiling. And this can elevate the risk of dangerous damage to body and brain, even if the TDS are consumed in miniscule amount. But the water purifiers indeed remove the TDS.

  1. Making Water Free of Harmful Viruses and Bacteria

Making Water Free of Harmful Viruses and Bacteria

Often present in contaminated water, these viruses and bacteria are the causes of the major water borne ailments including cholera, typhoid, gastro-intestinal infections and dysentery. These are very common in children, as contaminated water infect them due to weak immune systems. So, to save the children from these diseases, it is advised that the water should be contaminant free.  The RO procedure purifies the water of these bacteria and viruses.

  1. Boiling Water versus RO Purifiers

Boiling Water versus RO Purifiers

You might think of boiling the water rather than buying a new water purifier. But the fact is that boiling destroys organisms that cannot withstand high temperatures. Also, boiling water causes unnecessary wastage of energy and time, whereas RO purifier does a better work consuming less of both energy and time. Again, the boiled water should be consumed within 24 hours. Otherwise, bacteria could reenter the water after it cools.

  1. Softens Water

Softens Water

It is a fact that the hard water adversely affects the body. Consuming hard water over a period of time can cause cancer due to deposits of calcium and magnesium in the body. It also causes skin ailments like psoriasis and eczema along with scaling of the skin. Whereas soft water on the other hand, makes your skin healthy as there is an increase in sodium intake, also it detoxifies body as it is easier for the kidneys to process soft water rather than hard water.

You might have enough reasons to prefer using the old conventional ways of getting potable water rather than a water purifier. But not only that will take a toll on your health, also it will take a toll on your pocket, may be hospital bills or medicines or even worse. And as an old notion goes – ‘Precaution is better than cure’. Finding the best RO purifier or water filters can be a tough job. But getting the best water purifier for your home online at the best price and in the comfort of your home, is just a click away.


How Well The GST Will Reap Its Results In The Ecommerce Industry


Introducing The GST

Government is planning to launch the Goods And Services Tax (GST) soon, which Industrialists all around the country are waiting with baited breath. Talking about the background, a little – India has no tax laws in place that will regulate the eCommerce Industry. Therefore, the tax imposition is done on the basis of the interpretation of local taxation levies in different states. Hence, the introduction of the GST will truly benefit the booming eCommerce sector in the country. In the absence of a suitable legislation, it is being declared that businesses are suffering due to various interpretations that vary from state to state. GST might prove good for the e-commerce industry as it would eradicate many obstacles in inter-state delivery. GST, being a ‘destination-based tax on consumption’, is also set to address concerns of state governments that the business models of e-commerce firms erode their tax base.

How GST Will Benefit Different Areas

This will make way for a system in which the consuming state will get proceeds of taxes on interstate supply of goods. E-commerce firms build efficient warehouses where merchandise is stored for selling to consumers across the country. They offer an online marketplace, and in some cases a warehousing facility to vendors, and pay service tax to the central government on any fee or margin received for that. The liability of value-added tax (VAT) to be paid to the state government at the business-to-consumer level is on the vendor. GST should put an end to the numerous complaints about online sales and the hefty discounts they come with – which are eroding the sales and profitability of physical retailers as well as state revenues. The objective of the GST is to simplify and streamline the indirect tax regime in India.

GST – A Comprehensive Tax Regime

It is a single comprehensive tax regime that will be applicable across all Indian states on the sale, manufacture, as well as consumption of goods as well as services. This will help eliminate the challenge of the tax being levied on the same product or service multiple times. This also implies that, companies which are designing their strategies just to avoid the current tax regimen – will be able to change the way they plan and therefore devise strategies that are actually in their best interest. Under the new rules, details furnished by e-commerce companies will be verified against the details provided by the merchants, which can reign in discrepancies in payments. Post registration, merchants will have to report sales from online channel separately from their offline sales.

GST And Amazon

Recently, a situation arose as the state tax authorities ordered Amazon to discontinue selling some of the products that were previously stocked by these sellers – those who were supplying the products to Amazon’s warehouse. Pertaining to this decision, the company had no choice but to cancel many order that were received and bear the subsequent losses. Now that the eCommerce industry has taken root in India, the ground situation is that it does not have any eCommerce laws in place. Consequences have arisen and the current standoff is due to the differences in interpretation of the vague laws by Amazon and the state tax authorities.

What Future Holds

The marketplaces are also required to disclose sales and returns data along with merchant details in their filing. This would make it difficult for sellers and online marketplaces to misrepresent their book of accounts. The barriers at state borders, complexity of paying different taxes will ease. Warehousing will become more integrated. The cost of logistics is currently very high in India, costing about 15 percent of GDP. In mature markets, it stands at about 8 percent. According to Care Ratings, the GST is expected to trim logistic costs by up to 20 percent from the current levels.

8 Things to Keep In Mind While Buying An Air Conditioner.

Bearable condition-makers or more popularly known as Air Conditioners (ACs) are more of a necessity than a luxury. It is a fuss-less fact that they are considered to be the most important shields to protect us from the rising mercury. The mercury that will keep on rising as if it is destined to. This makes it even more important for us to know the type of shield we are about to buy and this Shields (ACs) will be with us for a decade (just saying). So choose wisely! But what are the factors you should be looking at for a wise choice? Let’s have a look –

  • Type of AC – There are three types of ACs available in the market (Online I mean) currently such as Window ACs, Split ACs and Portable ACs. Portable ACs is an option very rarely prefered and not that easily available (yet) in India. Hence, let’s straight away look at Window ACs and Split ACs.
  • Window ACs – It consists of a single unit with a combination of a compressor and a blower fit together within it. However, it can be installed in a window frame only. Window ACs are more economical and easier to install or relocate. The disadvantages of window ACs are – They are noisy, require specific space (window) for installation and at times it disturbs the room aesthetics.
  • Split ACs – It consists of two units, one mounted outside the home (wall) and another inside. The outside unit comprises of condenser and compressor whereas inside unit consists of a blower. Split AC is highly preferred nowadays. Although costlier than Window ACs, it is aesthetically very pleasing to the eye. They can be mounted anywhere inside the room. It is also less noisy than the window ACs.

So, which one you’d go with? Is it Split? Choose the type wisely.

  • Weather Conditions of the Area – If you traverse the length and breadth of the country, you may find climates and temperatures ranging from freezing point to the boiling point. At places, you’d find humidity that’d make you wish you could evaporate. At places you’d find dryness that’d make your skin feel like a coarse road. Therefore, it is very important to buy an AC that suits the weather conditions of your area.

  • Room Aesthetics (Size etc.) – Once you are sorted with the type of AC that you want to buy, the next step is to find out the size of the AC that you need. The size of the AC that you need is decided based on the area of your room. The size of the AC is measured in tonnes of Air that is to be cooled in your room. Cooling Capacity is the term used for this that you’ll find on e commerce websites online.

Please note here that there is no weightage in the fact that if you choose an AC with higher cooling capacity immaterial of the size of your room, it will cool your room faster. It is nothing more than a myth. In fact, it may increase your energy consumption. So, choose the size wisely!

The quest to find the perfect AC Online is not done yet! It will be continued in the next post! Stay Connected!

  • Inverter – Non Inverter AC- To begin with, Inverter AC doesn’t mean it runs on inverter or it runs even in electricity cuts. It uses an inverter technology, which uses to convert AC current to DC current which further regulate the compressor running speed. Traditional non-inverter air conditioner compressor motor sometime go “on” and “of”. Whereas, inverter AC compressor is always in “On”state. This makes the Inverter ACs highly efficient in every aspects compared to Non Inverter ACs. However, they are still very expensive in India.

If Money is not constraint, there is no doubt about the fact that you should go with Inverter ACs.

  • Energy Efficiency- After sizing comes the efficiency, the efficiency of an air conditioner is usually termed as EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio). It is rated in stars, from 1 to 5 rating. The better ratings means more electricity savings. Higher the amount of heat removed per hour per unit of power consumed, higher is the efficiency of air conditioner. Also, higher the EER, better is the air conditioner. Therefore, it is needless to say that an AC with a higher EER should be prefered, always.

  • Additional Features- Nothing is ever enough, when it comes to our desires and technology. Therefore, additional features are things that are highlighted by the companies. Features like Anti bacteria Filter, Dust Filter, Dehumidifier, Auto Cleaning Function, Auto Sleep Function. The recent one being ACs with WiFi ! Yes, that is true. Go figure!

  • Installation and After Sale Services- Split ACs are comparatively difficult to install. Therefore it may incur you extra installation charges. So, please keep this in mind as well. At the end of the day, the Air Conditioner that you buy will remain with you for about 2 to 10 years. That is why, after sales services too, become extremely important. Choose the channel that you have to buy from, wisely!


  • Budget- This factor ends up being the last on the list because of its importance. It is the most important factor above all that are mentioned above. ACs nowadays are available in a wide range, therefore figure out the budget and choose the right fit correctly.

Buying an Air Conditioner is not as difficult as it sounds, now, certainly it is not! ACs are available online with some unbelievable offers at the lowest prices! Go for ACs Online, then!
