New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has told all BJP MPs and MLAs to provide details of their bank transactions between November 8 and December 31, informed sources said on Tuesday. The Prime Minister’s instruction came at a BJP Parliamentary Party meeting held here. According to informed sources, Modi asked the BJP lawmakers to submit the details to party President Amit Shah.

The Prime Minister announced the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on November 8 and December 30 is the deadline for submitting the banned notes to banks. Modi also rejected allegations that the Income Tax Amendment Bill tabled in the Lok Sabha on Monday was aimed at converting black money into white.

“The PM described the move as a fight against black money and said it is for the welfare of poor,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters. Modi also sought support from everyone to make India a digital and cashless economy. “The Prime Minister wants to make the country a cashless society and sought everyone’s support,” the minister said.



Zoom saw its popularity soaring in the last three months




“We were humbled by the accelerated adoption of the Zoom platform around the globe in Q1. The COVID-19 crisis has driven higher demand for distributed, face-to-face interactions and collaboration using Zoom. Use cases have grown rapidly as people integrated Zoom into their work, learning, and personal lives,” said Eric S. Yuan, Founder and CEO of Zoom.


While Zoom saw its popularity soaring in the last three months, governments and law enforcement agencies also sought clarification from the video meet app over data hoarding and cyber hoarding, along with issues of unauthorised access termed as “zoom-bombing”.

After the Supreme Court in India sought the response of the Central government over a petition seeking a ban on Zoom, the video calling app claimed that it “takes user privacy, security, and trust extremely seriously.”

“Zoom takes user privacy, security and trust extremely seriously. We have been focused on enhancing our commitment to security and privacy under our 90-day plan announced on April 1, and have made significant progress,” the company said in a statement.

“Our primary grants in Q1 were toward organisations making a difference during COVID-19,” said Yuan.

Zoom growth has led to several tech giants ramping up their video conferencing services like Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and Facebook Messenger Rooms, among others.

Zoom recently announced that it will expand its engineering team with up to 500 new headcount based in Phoenix, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the US.
