He then sent on Daniel Sturridge for Emre Can and the England international immediately put a shot just wide The post Plymouth hold Liverpool in FA Cup, Chelsea and Spurs win | Reuters appeared first on Firstpost. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ PM Modi meets Frace’s Foriegn Minister at Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas, seeks to bolster ties with Paris http://www.firstpost.com/india/pm-modi-meets-fraces-foriegn-minister-at-pravasi-bharatiya-diwas-seeks-to-bolster-ties-with-paris-3194286.html http://www.firstpost.com/india/pm-modi-meets-fraces-foriegn-minister-at-pravasi-bharatiya-diwas-seeks-to-bolster-ties-with-paris-3194286.html Sun, 08 Jan 2017 16:23:46 UTC PTI at Firstpost » India Seeking to give a greater momentum to their strategic relationship, India and France on Sunday discussed a wide spectrum of issues, including defence and terrorism The post PM Modi meets Frace’s Foriegn Minister at Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas, seeks to bolster ties with Paris appeared first on Firstpost. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Demonetisation: Banks asked to obtain PAN from account holders by 28 February http://www.firstpost.com/business/demonetisation-banks-asked-to-obtain-pan-from-account-holders-by-28-february-3194290.html http://www.firstpost.com/business/demonetisation-banks-asked-to-obtain-pan-from-account-holders-by-28-february-3194290.html Sun, 08 Jan 2017 16:12:02 UTC IANS at Firstpost » India As part of the drive to unearth black money, the government has asked banks to obtain the permanent account number (PAN) or Form 60 if PAN is not available, from all bank account holders by 28 February, 2017, an official statement said on Sunday.
