Image
On November 26, 2008, one of the most audacious attacks on India’s sovereignty took place. Ten terrorists carried out 12 different across the city. That tragic day world witnessed extraordinary act of bravery and resilience across the city. While Indian commandos and forces were in action from outside the Taj hotel, very few knew what was happening inside the hotel during that crucial time. While all the employees were very well aware about exit points but Not ONE Taj employee abandoned the hotel and ran right through the attack.
Instead, they helped guests escape from the hotel. As a matter of fact, some of them lost their lives in the process.
This really confounded the psychologists. Their study revealed some interesting facts about the hiring system of Taj Group:

Here are some common bank charges that we all should know about.

Recently, SBI has revised its bank account closing charges. The new charges will be effective from October 1. Now, for SBI customers, there will be no account closure charges in case a person closes the bank account after one year. Earlier the bank used to levy a charge of Rs 500 plus GST (goods and services tax) if a person closed its bank account even after a year of opening it. Those who close the bank account within one year of opening will have to pay Rs 500 plus GST. No change has been made for such customers. However, now no charges will be levied if a deceased person's account is cl…
