Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

US rolls out new online visa form in India

New Delhi, (IANS) With the demand for US visas surging by the day, the US embassy and its consulates in India have introduced a new online non-immigrant visa (NIV) application form to cut out needless delays.

The DS-160 form will be online on the website of the US embassy from Jan 19. For all NIV visa appointments starting Feb 1, applicants will need to fill out the DS-160 form, the US embassy said here Wednesday while announcing the introduction of the new form.

The new form, that leverages new technologies, is expected to cut processing delays as applications could be pre-processed and pre-screened before an applicant's interview.

Applicants will continue to complete visa application forms online, as they did previously with the Electronic Visa Application Form, the embassy said.

The demand for American visas has been escalating in India over the years.

The four US consulates in the country had processed 725,000 visas in 2007 - a 58 percent increase from 2006.

India is among the top 10 countries sending visitors to the US.
