No filing of tax returns if salary is only income

 New Delhi, Feb 28 (PTI) In a big relief from cumbersome tax filing process for the salaried class, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee today proposed to exempt them from filing tax returns unless they have other sources of income.

The government will be issuing a notification exempting 'classes of persons' from the requirement of furnishing income tax returns, said the Memorandum to the Finance Bill 2011.

The decision, which will come into effect from June 1, 2011, will reduce the compliance burden on small taxpayers, it added.

Salaried taxpayers who do not have other sources of income and whose incomes are subject to Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) will be excluded from filing returns.

"Therefore, in cases where there is no other source of income, filing of a return is duplication of existing information," the Memorandum said.

Feedback on the 3rd meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

3rd meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was held yesterday, i.e. on 15th February, 2011 under the chairmanship of Secretary(P), DoPT(Government of India), wherein the following deliberations were made.

Though we know that no substantial relief has been given, but we hope for some outcome in the meetings likely to be held in future.

Two issues which are very important from our point of view - one is increment from January for those who falls between February and June was virtually rejected by the Ministry of Finance(Expenditure) but yesterday we again raised this issue, and after prolonged discussions, the Secretary, DoP&T had agreed to review the matter. An indication has also been given that if Staff Side agrees for one time exemption, then the issue can be resolved.

We also raised the issue of MACP Scheme, particularly abolition of GP Rs.2000. The Jt. Secretary(Estt.) stated that we would hold another round of discussions before finalizing the issues related to MACP Scheme.

During my opening remarks, though it was out of agenda, I raised the issue of early finalization of items of Departmental Anomaly Committee which are pending with the MoF(Exp). I stated that the Departmental Anomaly Committee of Railways had sent unanimous recommendations on various items to MoF(Exp.). More than nine months have passed and these issues are still pending with the MoF and the Railwaymen are feeling lot of frustration and therefore these need immediate redressal.

Though orders for Cadre Restructuring have been issued by the DoP&T vide O.M.No.35034/9/2010-Estt.(D) dated 10th February, 2011, we raised the issue that Matching Savings is not possible in the case of Railways. The President/AIRF and Secretary, NC/JCM(Staff Side) also emphasized on the issue and stated that in the Safety Categories, Railways cannot give Matching Savings. Therefore, for Cadre Restructuring, Matching Savings should not be insisted upon. It has been agreed by the Jt.Secretary(Pers.) that if reference comes from the Railways, that would be considered favorable.

Apart from the above issues, we also discussed agenda items which were not discussed so far in the National Anomaly Committee.

Item No.11: Grant revised allowances w.e.f. 1.1.2006 - Staff Side will give list of allowances. Thereafter, it will be discussed.

Item No.12 & 13: Transport Allowance - Staff Side will supply details. Thereafter, it will be examined.
Item No.14: Revision of existing allowances which are to be withdrawn and replaced by new schemes - If Insurance Scheme is not finalized within six months in consultation with the Staff Side, Risk Allowance and Patient Care Allowance will be doubled.

Item No.20: Daily Allowance on tour: - Orders have been issued for Geological Survey of India and Ground Water Board.

Item No.28: - Grant of GP Rs.5400 in PB-2 for Astt. Accounts/Audit Officers - Will be taken-up separately with the Jt. Secretary(Pers.) and Estt.

Item No.29 and 30: Revision of Base Index for DA and Benchmark in AICPIN Scheme for grant of DA/DR w.e.f. 1.1.2006 on CPC VI level pay/pension restructuring - Staff Side will give list which will be examined by the Jt. Secretary(Pers.)

Item No.31: Child Care Leave in respect of Central Government Women Employees as a result of Sixth Pay Commission report - It will be looked into for Defence Employees.

Item No.37: Waiver of recovery of higher DA/DR drawn during the period from 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2006 - Not Agreed.

Item No.38: Anomaly in fixing grade pay -Deferred.

Item No.39: Anomaly due to not applying uniformly the multiplication factor of 1.86 in fixing the minimum pay in all the revised pay bands applying different - Unresolved.

Item No.40: Grant of notional increment as may be due on the first day of July following the superannuation/death in service for computation of emoluments/average emoluments for pensioner benefits - Not Anomaly.

Item No.41: Fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying the same grade pay - Staff Side stated that the issue of Additional Allowance to the Running Staff has been raised. Where it has been emphasized that since DA has already been given on Additional Allowance, other benefits should also be given on Additional Allowance to give proper relief to the Running Staff. For other categories, e.g. ASM to SM in the same grade pay or MCM to JE in the same grade pay since their responsibility increases, therefore, in all fairness, and increment must be given while fixing pay. Official Side asked the Railways to submit the list, so that decision can be taken. Staff Side mentioned that since this issue belongs to Railways only, therefore, powers should be delegated to the Railways as has been done earlier. Official Side mentioned that since the issue has already under reference to National Anomaly Committee, Railways will be asked to submit the list. Thereafter, decision will be taken at an earliest.

Item No.43: Anomaly in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay of Library Information Assistants - Already finalized.

Item No.44 : Before the 6th Pay Commission, there were 3 HAG scales of pay - Under review.

Item No.45: Anomaly in pension of those in receipt of stagnation increments in pre-revised pay scales - Official Side agreed to consider the cases where someone had stagnated beyond one year in the pre-revised scale.

Item No. 46 and 49 - Disparity in pay scales and status of officers in stenographers cadre and Anomalies in the matter of pay scales of stenographers - Will be examined.

Item No.50: Anomalies in the pay scales of official language staff - Since the issue of Rajbhasha Staff has been sent to Ministry of Finance(Exp.) Official Side agreed to send its approval at an earliest.

Item No.51: Assigning higher grade pay of Rs.4600 to Administrative Officer Gr.III and Private Secretary in Subordinate Offices - Resolved.

OVER TIME IN ORDINANCE FACTORIES

The general practice that is in progress across the globe is eight hours work per day.Work hours exceeding 8 hours per day  is calculated as over time and is been generally given likewise.

   If one comes to work from Monday to Friday but absent himself on Saturday,the over time calculated generally for Saturday  would not be given to him.. This is generally in practice .  The reason is that he has not come to work  on that day,as a result overtime has not been performed by  him.

  In some other factories there is a process  in practice known as ''attendance bonus ''.If one attends his work without taking leave even for one day, he can avail  this bonus . Practically even this process can be accepted  to an extent only. But comrades, in central government   factories to say in particular ordinance  factories the overtime practice cannot be practically accepted by any one.

   The hours exceeding  44 3/4 hrs in a week is only taken in to account as over time. In an emergency situation if one takes leave even for one single day in a week, the remaining ot hours done by him becomes single.If one stays and works beyond 8 hrs in a office or industry the exceeding hrs should definitely  be calculated as over time.So  if he takes leave on that same week the extra hrs done by him previosely  is not taken in to consideration as ot  hours. Why  is it so?
This age old process  is still being put in practice.Why is this continuing?We still don't understand.
Employees are frustrated of this occurence.Peace of mind is lost as one  is in a condition to come to work even if there arises a emergency.On precious  occasions the employees are not able to spend quality time with their family members.
If one come to work, his mind is boggled with thoughts of his home.If he is on leave at home unnecessarily he wields his angriness those at home thinking about his financial loss.
Taking leave and losing joy one takes the different path of mental agony and stress leading to heart related problems,diabetes,blood pressure event at an early age of 40.
Why can't this pitiful situation be cleared?What are the reactions put by the Federations regarding these issues?
Can these people live lives like their comrades in other industries?
If trade unions destroy these barriers definitely they may face some problems.But in the long run, future generation will praise for that.

INTEREST RATES ON PF (PROVIDENT FUND)

New Delhi, Feb 15 (PTI) Finance Ministry is likely to give green signal to payment of 9.5 per cent interest rate on provident fund deposits during 2010-11, a senior government official said today.

"We can get ratification on 9.5 per cent for the fiscal from Finance Ministry any moment before March 31, 2011", Labour Secretary P C Chaturvedi said.

He was speaking to reporters ahead of the meeting of the Central Board of Trustees (CBT), the highest policy making body of the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO).

Although CBT, which is headed by labour minister, had decided to give a higher return of 9.5 per cent on provident fund deposits for 2010-11, the Finance Ministry had expressed its reservation on the move.

Non-relieving of CSS officers under transfer on Rotational Transfer or on Promotion

No.21/1/2011-CS. I (P)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training
Lok Nayak Bhawan, New Delhi
Dated the 14th February, 2011
OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Non-relieving of CSS officers under transfer on Rotational Transfer or on Promotion — reg.

This has reference to the notification NO.1/8/09-CS.I (P) dated 17.9.2010 amending Rule 19 of CSS Rules 2009 prescribing the time limit of 45 days within which CSS officers under transfer, either on Rotational Transfer or on promotion, must be relieved of their duties in their present Ministries/Departments. It was also laid down in the CSS (Amendment) Rules 2010 that if an officer is not relieved within forty-five days or such further period as referred to in sub-rule (1). the officer shall be deemed’ to have been relieved by the cadre-unit in which he is working and thereafter the officer shall not be entitled to draw any salary and allowances for the period of such overstay from the cadre unit from where the cadre officer was transferred.

2. It is noticed that some of the Ministries/Departments are not complying with the provision of the amended Rule 19 of CSS of 2010 on the pretext that references have been made by them to this Department against the transfer orders.

3. While every effort is made to immediately reply to the aforesaid references against transfers, it is sometimes not possible to do so due to a large number of such references being received in DOP&T.

4 Mere references being made to DOP&T against such transfer/promotion orders by some cadre units cannot be taken as a plea for non-implementation of DOP&T’s orders within the prescribed time limit. It is, therefore, once again reiterated that in case a reply from this Department. extending the time limit for relieving of the officer is not received, the Ministries/Departments must relieve the concerned officers within the original time limit.

5 This may please be noted for strict compliance by all Ministries/Departments.

6.This issues with the approval of secretary(P)

Government of India Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions 
(Department of Personnel & Training) 
Establishment (D)

North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 10th February, 2011

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Review of Cadre structuring – Regarding

In pursuance of the decision taken in the 2nd meeting of the National Anomaly Committee held on 27.03.2010, a Joint Committee to examine the anomalies pertaining to the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) was constituted vide Department of Personnel & Training (DOPT)’s O.M. No.11/1/2010-JCA dated 03.05.2010.

2. The issue of providing an option to organisations/cadres to have a choice for the benefits under the earlier ACPS or the MACPS was also discussed in the meeting of the Joint Committee. While the issue would require further deliberations, it is reiterated that MACPS (as was the case with the ACPS) is a fall back option in the event of promotions not taking place. Cadre structure needs to be reviewed periodically to harmonise the functional needs of the organisation and career progression of employees. Accordingly, all concerned are advised to review the cadre structure in a time bound manner with a view to mitigate problem of stagnation.

3. All Ministries/Departments may give wide circulation to the contents of this O.M. for guidance and appropriate action in the matter.

Railways Re-Introduces the need for Carrying Identity Proof During ‘Tatkal’ ticket Travel from tomorrow

In view of the complaints received in recent past regarding alleged irregularities in Tatkal scheme, Ministry of Railways has decided to re-introduce the need for carrying Identity Proof in original during the course of journey. This provision will come into effect from tomorrow i.e. 11th February 2011.

Any one of the passenger/passengers who will be travelling on Tatkal ticket will be required to produce one of the following eight Identity Proofs in original during the course of journey.

1. Voter Photo Identity Card issued by Election Commission of India
2. Passport
3. PAN Card issued by Income Tax Department

5. Photo Identity Card issued by Central/State Government

Any one of the passenger/passengers will be required to produce Identity proof in original for checking by ticket checking staff during the course of journey, failing which, all the passenger/passengers travelling on the said ticket will be treated as travelling without ticket and will be charged excess fare and penalty as per rules.

The Ministry of Railways has constantly been taking steps to make Tatkal scheme attractive and passenger friendly and useful for genuine travelers requiring traveling at short notice. Earlier, the advance reservation period under Tatkal scheme was reduced from five days to two days excluding the date of journey with effect from 1st August 2009. Next, the Tatkal charges were also reduced from 1st October 2009. Moreover, Tatkal tickets were also issued for actual distance of travel instead of end to end. In another move to remove the difficulties faced by ordinary common users in accessing the Railway website for booking Tatkal tickets and ordinary tickets over internet in the first hour of the booking on the opening day, the Ministry of Railways has decided to bar travel agents, web-service agents/web agents of IRCTC from accessing the website during that period i.e. from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
