I have been looking to change my family's (3 member including me) health insurance.
 
Current provider is Care (previously Religare) but I have been coming across many instances of them rejecting claims and straight up not even providing a reason for it.
 
Also, for the past 3 weeks I haven't been able to renew the policy because their portal just doesn't work and it looks like many are facing the same issue but all CC does is to direct the customers to their faulty website and if that doesn't work, they just apply a penalty for late payment and process it later.
 
So please suggest a better provider, preferably if you have used them personally.
Would like if the new provider can consider the tenure of the Religare's insurance as well, otherwise will have to start a policy from scratch which won't cover all diseases from the get go.

Everyone's experience with different providers will be different. It'll be tough to find a single provider who's giving a good experience to all customers.
That said, start by comparing the premiums for different family members across similar policies by different players. And then see their % claims paid out (from their filings). Also see their list of networks hospitals for cashless claims in your city.
I would lastly check the wait period for pre existing diseases and bigger diseases like cancer.
This should help you narrow it down to a few names. I personally use ICICI and am happy af with their service and OPD claims of 10k built in the policy.

What do you guys do to avoid as much tax as you can? Apart from health insurance, ppf and rent.

There's isn't much left tbh. You can try NPS though check the tax savings on it once.
For salaried people once we hit the max limits of tax savings, it's better to focus on investing money where the returns are tax free like life insurance (payout should be tax free u/s 10(10D), MFs which have no taxes on >1Y for equity, etc)

Guys, I will be starting with my work soon and I am looking to setup my work area.

 

So please suggest some good chairs and desks for the same. 

Don't really have a budget, all depends on what the product offers for the price.

Any suggestions for the desk?

For chair I am going with Featherlite as @SuperT suggested.

I've got a question about cooling for my PC build; Will it suffice?

 

Specs:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

CPU Cooler: Antec A40 Pro Air Cooler

GPU: Zotac OEM RTX 2060

PSU: Antec Atom B550W

RAM: G.Skill Ripjawz 2*8GB 

Case: Ant Esports ICE 320TG (comes with 3 RGB 120mm fans in the front, and 1 normal 120mm fan in the back - room for more on top)

 

Do I need to add more cooling fans?

Looks fine 

You don't need more fans

Honestly you don't even need a CPU cooler. If you can take that money and get a 2060 Super instead of a 2060, that would be great.

Alrighty.

 

And I can't do that, since I have all the other parts for my build in hand already apart from the GPU (which is in shipping right now, made the purchase before the weekend) and I couldn't get any other good GPU at a reasonable price within my budget before.

Switched to MacOS. Its not bad, idk if II like it more than windows, but the hardware being a lot faster makes a lot of difference.

 

1. Control C, Control V doesn't work here. Can I enable it somehow? I need this.

2. I'm using it with an external monitor, KB+M. But if I close the lid, it goes to sleep. How can I fix it? I know how to on windows, but can't see the option here. 

3. My mouse feels janky on this. It was too slow before, so I increased the tracking speed, but it feels laggy and unresponsive now. Logitech M331 Silent Wireless Mouse. Working fine on my windows laptop.

I had a G304 and it started giving the double click problem. Since it was under warranty, I sent it to service centre.

Now after 15 days, Logitech calls up & says there is no stock & it won't be coming for quite some time & they'll give a full refund.

 

So now, which mouse to buy? I don't play on PC, G304 was an impulse buy.

 

MX Master 3 is the best one, right? Going for 7.5-8K. Any other options?

Use 'Win button + C' and 'Win button + V' to Copy and Paste on MacOS with a Windows keyboard. Win Button will act as the CMD button for all shortcuts.

MX Anywhere 3 is going for 6500, that is also a good option.

Thanks! The mouse is also working smoothly now, I guess it was something with the drivers or something.

 

The only problem left is that I have to keep the Macbook open while using it with the monitor. How do I change that setting?

I want to use it with the monitor and keep the lid closed.
