Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo - Jelly Fish



The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo was designed by Peddle Thorp and is managed by Emaar Entertainment. The aquarium, located in The Dubai Mall, showcases more than 300 species of marine animals, including sharks and rays.

Its 270-degree acrylic walk-through tunnel lets visitors see a variety of underwater animals up close. A special 'lunar-cyclic' lighting system changes the ambience of the tank depending on the time of day.

The Underwater Zoo is located above the aquarium, and provides an interactive approach to educating children and visitors on the ecology and sustainability of marine life. The journey consists of three ecological zones: Rainforest, Rocky Shore, and Living Ocean, each of which features a variety of aquatic animals including penguins, crocodiles, piranhas, giant spider crabs, water rats, sea horses, and jellyfish amongst others.


The attraction was awarded with the ‘Certificate of Excellence’ award by TripAdvisor in 2012, and won the ‘Images Most Admired Retailer of the Year – Leisure & Entertainment’ at Images RetailME Awards 2012.

Income Tax and My Role in IT Return

We are always speaking about government. Our government is not doing any welfare works. Not doing any new projects etc.. But many people don’t know for these projects funds coming from where? Till the age of 20 I don’t have any idea what was income tax and why people are afraid of it. When I came to know about the exact thing I realized yes! as a citizen we have to do our duty for paying Income tax to move our country to the way of development. The amount which is collecting from Income Tax is used for the development projects.

Benefits of filing Income Tax Returns

What is Income Tax?
Income tax is a key source of funds that the government uses to fund its activities and serve the public. An income tax is a tax that governments impose on financial income generated by all entities within their jurisdiction. By law, businesses and individuals must file an income tax return every year to determine whether they owe any taxes or are eligible for a tax refund.


 “I’m taking the #TaxPledge to file IT returns with the easy Income Tax efiling option from H&R Block at BlogAdda.



What will happen if you do not pay Income Tax?
You will receive a notice from Income Tax department for not filing return for how many years. They want you have to file it immediately and give a proper reason why you have not filed.

What will happen if you pay Income Tax?
Under Income Tax Law if your total income exceeds the basic exemption limit: You have to file the Income Tax Return within the prescribed time, i.e. by the due date.
This is applicable for the Assessment Year 2012-13.
As an Individual you are required by law to file your Income Tax Returns, if your total income without allowing deductions (such as Section 80C etc) exceeds the basic exemption limit.
For Assessment Year 2012-13, the basic exemption limits are the following:
•   For Men below the age of 60, the exemption limit is Rs. 1,80,000.
•   For Women, below the age of 60, the exemption limit is Rs. 1,90,000.
•   For Senior Citizens, whose age is between 60 years to 80 years, the exemption limit is Rs. 2,50,000. This is identical for men and women.
•   For Super Senior Citizens, of the age of 80 years or more, the exemption limit is Rs. 5,00,000.
What does Total Income without allowing deductions (such as Section 80C etc) actually mean?
Let’s say, your gross total Income is Rs. 2,00,000. You have paid Rs. 50,000 in LIC premium for claiming deduction under Section 80C. Your Taxable Income is Rs. 1,50,000 (Rs. 2,00,000 – Rs. 50,000). The tax payable on Rs. 1,50,000 is Zero.
However, even in this situation, you are required to file your Income Tax Return as your gross total Income exceeds the basic exemption limit of Rs. 1,80,000. (Assuming you are not a senior citizen).

Exemption for filing Income Tax Return for Salaried Employees
The Exemption range is changes during the budget time. So it is varying each year.
For the Assessment Year 2012-13, there is an exemption from filing the Income Tax Return for Salaried employees, subject to the following conditions. 
•   Your Total Income after deductions (such as Section 80C etc) is upto Rs. 5,00,000.
•   Income other than Salary should be only from Saving Bank Interest, upto Rs. 10,000. If you have any other source of Income like House Property, Capital Gain, or even interest from fixed deposits, you will have to file your Income Tax Return.
•   You must declare this Interest Income from the Saving Bank to the Employer. The employer then has to deduct the TDS taking into account your Interest Income.
•   If you have a refund due, you need to your file your Income Tax Return to claim this refund.
