Cabinet clears bill to check benami transactions

Cabinet clears bill to check benami transactions

New Delhi: The Cabinet today approved the new Benami Transaction (Prohibition) Bill which aims at curbing the generation of domestic black money.

“The Union Cabinet has approved the new Benami Transaction (Prohibition) Bill to curb generation of black money,” said a source after the Cabinet meeting here.

Apart from confiscation, the Bill provides for prosecution and aims to act as a major avenue for blocking generation and holding of black money in the form of benami property, especially in real estate.

The government had in Budget 2015-16, presented at the end of February, announced that it would come out with a new and more comprehensive Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Bill.

The Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act was earlier enacted in 1988, but the rules under that Act could not be formulated due to inherent infirmities in it.

Following this, in 2011 the government introduced in Parliament a Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Bill, which proposed replacing the 1988 Act.

The Bill was referred to the Standing Committee on Finance for examination, which submitted its report in June 2012.

However, the Bill lapsed with the dissolution of 15th Lok Sabha.

Wait list passengers in Railway will be offered plane tickets

Wait list passengers in Railway will be offered plane tickets

Wait list passengers in Railway will be offered flight tickets: Indian Express News

Dropped from railway waiting list? Well IRCTC will now let you book last-minute flight tickets

For once, it might be a good thing to be dropped from an Indian Railway waiting list at the last moment. IRCTC has launched a new scheme that lets customers who have been dropped from a waiting list avail a last minute flight ticket at a “competitive” fare.

This is how the scheme works, as per IRCTC:

First you will have to have a wait-listed train tickets booked three days prior to the date of journey and not confirmed at the time of chart preparation. Only people with such tickets are eligible for the offer.

Such passengers will get an e-mail from IRCTC showing eligibility. They can then log in to irctc.co.in and choose the passengers name from the train ticket list and click flight search.

Again, this will work only if flights are available to the said destination or another in the same sector. If there is a flight, passengers can choose the next day button and book.

The passengers will have to make full payments for the flights and the refund for the train booking will not be deducted from the same. That will be refunded as usual.

However, be aware that these are last minute flights and you will hardly get any refund if you don’t reach the airport on time.

EPS pensioners assured of minimum pension of Rs. 1000 per month

Press Information Bureau,
Government of India
Ministry of Labour & Employment

12-May, 2015

EPS pensioners assured of minimum pension of Rs. 1000 per month

EPFO settles 11.77 lakh claims in April 2015: 77% of EPF claims settled within 10 days.

The Employees Provident Fund Organisation(EPFO) has settled 11.77 lakh claims were settled in the month of April itself. This fact emerged while reviewing the performance of EPFO in the first month of the new financial year 2015-16. According to Shri K.K. Jalan, CPFC showing an improvement in the time taken for settlement, 48% of the claims were settled within 03 days and 77% were settled within 10 days. More than 15 crore annual accounts were updated in the first two working days of the financial year which is a historical first and this was made possible by the adoption of new updated software by the organization.

A decision was also taken regarding continuation of minimum pension of Rs 1000 to the pensioners of EPS, 1995 on a perpetual basis. This move is expected to benefit more than 19 lakh pensioners who would otherwise draw less than Rs. 1000 as pension under EPS, 1995.

Grievance redressal continued to be given top most priority. More than 14,000 grievances were settled in the month of April leaving a balance of 3,354 grievances pending. Of these more than three-fourths were pending for less than 15 days. As grievance monitoring is being done at the highest level in the government under PRAGATI programme, comprehensive guidelines were also issued to further minimize the number of pending grievances.

A conference of the ten Zonal Addl. CPFCs also took place in last month. Several important decisions directly affecting the working of the organization were taken. Top priority is to be accorded to activation of UAN and also to activate e-life certificate, “Jeevan Praman Patra” for EPS pensioners.Use of e-governance tools has to be adopted in all functional areas including compliance management. This would help the organization in better monitoring and also foster a conducive compliance environment It was also decided to initiate efforts for making the members’ passbook on the portal, available in vernacular languages also, for the benefit and convenience of the PF subscribers.

Denial of TA/DA to the Staff car Drivers in the Railways-reg

Denial of TA/DA to the Staff car Drivers in the Railways-reg

Affiliated to :
lndian NationalTrade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers’ Federation (lTF)

No. I/8/Part. I

Dated: 11/05/2015

Sub: Denial of TA/DA to the Staff car Drivers in the Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM ltem No.4/2011.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. 1/8 dated 02/04/2010.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. I/8/pt. I dated 27/06/2013. 13/09/2013, 5/5/2014, 7/7/2014 & 21/10/2014.

(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. F(E)I/209/AL-28/04/2015.

In the Fast Track Committee Meeting held in the Railway Board on 08/05/2015, the above subject was discussed without finality. However, NFIR places below detailed justification warranting restoration of payment of TA/DA to the Staff Car Drivers:-

1. The Committee constituted by the Railway Board appears to have not recommended payment of Daily Allowance to the Staff Car Drivers for performing official journeys during the prescribed duty hours even if they move out beyond a distance of 8 kms. from the Head Quarters without consulting extant codal provision.

2. The Sub Rule (1) of Rule 1614 o.f lndian Railway Establishment Code (Second Reprint Edition) permits drawal of daily allowance by a Railway employee who is not receiving a permanent allowance on any day on which he proceeds on tour beyond a radius of 8 krns.

The position mentioned above shows that the decision taken by the Railway Board is contrary to the instructions/codal provisions, the same requires to be reviewed. It needs to te appreciated that the staff car drivers carry the officials to accident sites, flood affected areas, and different locations in view of administrative requirement. Their working is not comparable with other departments of central Government. Denial of TA/DA is therefore unjustified.

NFIR, therefore, urges the Railway Board to withdraw Board’s letter dated 12/03/2008 and issue instructions to the General Managers of Zones/PUs for restoration of payment of TA/DA to Staff Car Drivers undertaking journeys a beyond a distance of 8 kms. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

Emergency Facilities in CGHS Dispensaries

Emergency Facilities in CGHS Dispensaries

The CGHS dispensaries have all the medicines required in emergency. As per the CGHS guidelines, a provision is there to keep medicines available to counter any medical emergency that might arise within the Wellness Centre. There is an Emergency Tray available with the nursing staff which contains most of the medicines required under emergency situation. The availability of the medicines with their valid date of expiry in this Emergency Tray is checked on a regular basis and also during surprise checks.

A complaint was received on 07.09.2013 from Sh. R. C. Khuntia, the then Member of Parliament in respect of pensioner beneficiary, Sh. B. K. Joshi regarding non-supply of life saving drugs on time by CGHS Bhubaneswar. The delay in supply was due to non availability of cancer medicine with the authorized stockiest.

In case the medicines are not available at the Wellness Centre, they are procured through local purchase. If any medicine is prescribed by the treating doctor that is required to be used immediately and if that medicine is not available in the Wellness Centre, authority slip is issued to the patient to collect the medicine from the authorized local chemist free of cost.

The Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Shri J P Nadda stated this in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha here today.

New Delhi: The bill, which provides for penalty and tax up to 120 percent along with criminal prosecution for those who have parked black money abroad, was passed in the Lok Sabha on Monday.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who moved the bill in the Lok Sabha, asked the opposition not to develop ‘cold feet’ in supporting the legislation.

Jaitley rejected the demands of the opposition parties to refer it to the Standing Committee. The Finance Minister said that delay in enacting the legislation would provide opportunity to offenders to transfer unaccounted overseas wealth to unknown destinations.

The bill provides for rigorous imprisonment of up to 10 years for offenders.

New Delhi: A new Benami bill, aimed at curbing generation of domestic black money, will soon be brought before the Cabinet, government told the Lok Sabha today.

“As regards the Benami Bill, the redrafted Act is at a very advanced stage… A more modern Benami bill has been drafted. It will reach the Cabinet any day,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.

Apart from confiscation, the Bill would provide for prosecution and would aim to act as a major avenue for blocking generation and holding of black money in the form of benami property, especially in real estate.

Jaitley said the inclusion of the parallel economy of black money into the main economy, would help government to lower tax rates.

“The need to curb domestic black money is extremely important. We need to bring slowly more and more of our economy into declared economy. This has ability to bring up tax collection, GDP, enables to help the government to bring down the taxation.

“If parallel black money comes into the economy, then the taxes go down,” Jaitley said.

The government had in Budget 2015-16, presented at the end of February, announced that it would come out with a new and more comprehensive Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Bill.

The Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act was earlier enacted in 1988, but the rules under that Act could not be formulated due to inherent infirmities in the Act.

DoPT withholds info on CIC selection

DoPT withholds info on CIC selection

New Delhi: Department for Personnel and Training (DoPT), which is the nodal authority for handling RTI matters, has refused to furnish records related to appointment process of the Central Information Commission without citing any exemption clause for the same, which is mandatory as per CIC orders.
While refusing to furnish information, a Central Public Information Officer must cite either of the 10 sub clauses given in the section 8 of the RTI Act along with proper reasons justifying how the section is attracted.

The case related to an Odisha based RTI applicant Deba Prasad Sahoo who sought to know the information related to appointment of Chief Information Commissioner, a post which has been lying vacant since August 22, 2014 after the retirement of then incumbent Rajiv Mathur.

“The appointment of IC/CIC is under challenge in the High Court of Delhi and therefore, the document sought for cannot be provided at this stage,” R K Girdhar, the Central Public Information Officer for DoPT said.

Under Section 8 (1) (b) only that information can be withheld by a CPIO which has been expressly forbidden to be published by any court of law or tribunal or the disclosure of which may constitute contempt of court.

In a recent order, Information Commissioner Basant Seth had clarified “The mere pendency of arbitration proceedings is not sufficient justification by itself for withholding the information. The RTI Act provides no exemption from disclosure requirement for sub-judice matters”.

“The only exemption in sub-judice matters is regarding what has been expressly forbidden by a court or a tribunal and what may constitute contempt of court,” Seth said.

In his response dated May 5, 2015, Girdhar said the CPIO claimed that appointment of Chief Information Commissioner is being handled in file number 4/7/2014-IR.

On March 25, 2015 reply to a separate RTI activist Commodore (Retd) Lokesh Batra, Girdhar had claimed that the process for shortlisting of candidates, for the current phase of appointment to the post of Chief Information Commissioner/ Information Commissioners is not available in file numbers… 4/7/2014-IR.

Non-Cooperation of Railway Staff during Vigilance Checks – Railway Board would view non-cooperation at the time of checking conducted by vigilance organisation

Railway Board has issued a letter regarding non cooperation of Railway Staff during Central Vigilance Commission.

(RAILWAY BOARD)

No.2014/V-1/VP/1/10

New Delhi, dt. 27.01.2015

The SDGMs ICVO’s
All Indian Railways

Zonal Railways have made references from time to time regarding non-cooperation by Railway staff during vigilance checks, thereby impeding the work of vigilance officials.

Preventive checks, carried out by vigilance organization, are mandated in order to monitor the working of the Railway organization. Investigating Inspectors of Vigilance organisation are empowered to call for documents, record statements and if need be, ask any railway official for assistance during the check.

Non-cooperation during the vigilance checks is viewed seriously and may also give rise to suspicion for helping the guilty get away. Instructions as laid down vide L.No.2010/V-l/PC/1/1 dated 09.07.2010 & No.2007/V-1/VP/1/9 dated 20.02.2008 are enclosed for ready reference. Hence all concerned officials may be sensitized to extend full cooperation during vigilance checks. It should be explained to them that it would be in their interests to disclose the cash and contents of their bags/wallets/pockets etc as and when required, so that any resistance on this account is not interpreted as non-cooperation.

This issues with the approval the competent authority.

Encl: as above.

Sub : Cooperation with Vigilance team in discharge of its duty during conduct of preventive check.

Instances nave come to notice that during Preventive Checks conducted by teams from the Vigilance Directorate of Railway Board, full cooperation is not being extended by the officials of zonal Railways, for eliciting requisite information and collecting relevant documents, thereby, hampering smooth and effective working by the Vigilance officials

2. It may be mentioned that Investigating Inspectors of the Vigilance Directorate of Railway Board are authorized to enter any of the Railway offices, record statements of the officials concerned, who are expected to render them all possible assistance in the proper discharge of their official duties. They are also empowered to seize all relevant documents against issue of proper ‘Seizure Memo’.

3. As preventive checks are an effective way of monitoring the system, there is a need to extend full cooperation by the officials of the concerned Zonal Railways to the Vigilance team conducting the check, by providing them requisite information, documents etc. This will go a long way in strengthening the vigilance administration.

4. This letter supercedes Board’s letter No.2007N1/PC/1/1 dated 254.2007 (RBV No 04/2007)

The Secretary,
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
South Block, DHQ PO,
New Delhi – 110011

Subject: Extension of facilities of Salary Accounts under Defence Salary Package to the Industrial / Non-Industrial Civilian Employees.

Respected Sir,

With due regards, your attention is invited to Section 6. of the Payment of Wages Act, 1936 which stipulates that all wages shall be paid in current coins or currency notes or in both provided that the employer may after obtaining the written authorisation of the employed person, pay him the wage, either by cheque or by crediting the wages in his bank account.
It is worth to mention here that the Head of Departments / Head of Offices of the defence installations under Army, Air Force, Navy, DDP, DRDO etc. have successfully convinced all the industrial & non-industrial civilian employees to draw their wages in bank account and has got the salary account opened in nationalized bank including State Bank of India,
Further, State Bank of India grants some privileges/facilities to the holders of salary accounts under Defence Salary Package, which are mentioned in annexure of this letter. But it is painful to note that the same benefit is not being extended to civilian employees of the same defence installation.
Therefore, you are requested to take necessary action so that the industrial / non-industrial civilian employees of defence installations may also get the benefits of Salary Accounts under Defence Salary Package.

Thanking you.
Sincerely yours

Annexed: As mentioned

(MUKESH SINGH)
Secretary/BPMS
Member, JCM-ll Level Council (MOD)

New Delhi, the 30.4.2015.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Review of compassionate appointment cases regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this Ministry’s OM No.19(3)/2013/D(Lab) dated 18.11.2014 vide which all administrative/authorities were requested to strictly comply the instructions contained in Para 8 of DoP&T OM No. 14014/02/2012-Estt(D) dated 16.1.2013 regarding withdrawal of three years time limit and Sl.No. 38-43 of FAQ issued vide DoP&T OM No. 14014/02/2012-Estt(D) dated 30.5.2013.

2. An issue has been raised by Bhartiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh (BPMS) informing that the Line Directorates/Units of Army HQrs are not considering the compassionate appointment cases in true spirit of the guidelines issued by DoP&T and the requests for compassionate appointment are being rejected on the plea that as per policy once three consecutive chances had been considered, the Case is considered to be closed and cannot be opened.

3. As per the new guidelines on compassionate appointment, any application for compassionate appointment is to be considered without any time limit and decision taken on merit in each case.

4. Regarding re-opening of old cases which were closed on completion of three years time limit as per the earlier policy of DoP&T, it may be noted that the DoP&T vide their OM dated 30.5.2013 have clarified that the closed cases can be reopened provided tat the cases were closed due to non-availability of vacancies during the 3 year time period. However these cases may be considered as per the criteria mentiOned in Sl.No. 32 & 39 of FAQ dated 30.5.2013. Such cases should not be opened merely because the time limit has been waived off. In this regard DoP&T have further clarified that the cases which have been closed for not being found suitable under the criteria for compassionate appointments, need not to be opened irrespective of thewaiver of time limit.

5. In view of the above, all the Service HQrs/lower formations are requested to follow the DoP&T’s above guidelines in letter and spirit. They may not reject any application for compassionate appointment simply on the ground that it had already been considered thrice unless it was rejected due to lack of merit/not found suitable under the criteria for compassionate appointments. If the compassionate appointment could not be granted due to non-availability of vacancies at that time, any fresh application, received now should be re-considered after adjudging his penurious condition on the basis of the family’s latest financial/economic condition, number of dependents of the family as on date, latest marital status of dependents etc in the light of the existing guidelines of DoP&T on the subject.

7th Pay Commission: CPWD engineers want pay, rank parity with IAS

7th Pay Commission: CPWD engineers want pay, rank parity with IAS: The Indian Express – By Shalini Narayan

They demanded that Group ‘A’ engineers be treated at par, in terms of pay scale and career progression, with IAS officers.

Representatives of the Central Public Works Department’s (CPWD) Central Engineering Service Group ‘A’ association, on Thursday, approached the Seventh Central Pay Commission.

They demanded that Group ‘A’ engineers be treated at par, in terms of pay scale and career progression, with IAS officers.

The association has also demanded that they be given an additional 25 per cent of their basic pay as “non-practicing allowance”.

It has also asked that engineers be imparted at least a two-year international training exposure, just as it is done for IAS officers.

Representatives of the Indian Telecom Services and the Central Power Engineering Services too made their submissions before the commission.

In a written submission, the association says, “The engineering fraternity has been denied their due importance in government jobs… The career progression of engineers joining the engineering services is very slow.”

It further stated, “Most of the members of the engineering services more often report to the officers of other services who are much junior in terms of year of joining. These officers recruited through engineering services also end up drawing lesser pay and perks as compared to their counter parts in civil services.”

Reportedly, the fifth pay commission had recommended that all organised group ‘A’ services — including those of the engineering services — should have a model cadre structure which should be achieved by carrying out the cadre reviews.

However, the letter states, “These recommendations were not implemented in the right spirit. It has taken 10 to 15 years to implement cadre reviews for engineering services. On the other hand, most of the civil services have cadre structure either on par or much above the model cadre structure.”

The association has demanded that promotional aspects should be made at par with the civil services, a strict batch parity be maintained in respect of promotions and director-general of CPWD be declared the ex-officio secretary to the Government of India, among others.

7th Pay Commission: IPS, IRS want end to ‘IAS raj’ in secretary posts, seek pay hike

7th Pay Commission: IPS, IRS want end to ‘IAS raj’ in secretary posts, seek pay hike

 

IPS, IRS want end to ‘IAS raj’ in secretary posts, seek pay hike: The Times of India News by Pradeep Thakur

NEW DELHI: Officers of the police and revenue services have petitioned the 7th Pay Commission seeking scrapping of the Centre’s empanelment process for appointments to the posts of secretary, additional secretary and joint secretary.

The Indian Revenue Service (IRS) association has demanded scrapping of the empanelment process which is dominated by the IAS and sought higher pay. The IPS association has quoted statistics to demonstrate how other services have always been discriminated both in pay and positions compared to the ‘elite’ Indian Administrative Service (IAS).

About 75% of the joint secretaries, 85% of the additional secretaries and 90% of the secretaries are from IAS. The proportion of IAS dramatically increases from 10-12% at the level of directors to 75% at the JS level, a presentation from the IPS association says.

The 7th Pay Commission was constituted in February 2014 and is expected to give its report by October this year. Its recommendation will guide how the salary and various allowances of central staff will be revised besides improving their service condition.

“Strong entry barriers have been erected for other services, with 5-10 years gap in empanelment to prevent them from reaching JS level,” the IPS officers have pleaded before the pay commission, saying this is causing frustration among the forces that is leading country’s fight against terror and left-wing terrorism.

Out of 20 joint secretaries in the home ministry, only one is from the IPS and the department of internal security is not even headed by an IPS. “The system over a period of time created the ruling class who occupy JS and above posts and the working class which are compelled to remain at directors’ level and below,” the presentation says.

The IRS officers have asked the pay panel to consider giving them more pay over the IAS as they are “performing the most important sovereign function of revenue collection.” The two-year edge being enjoyed by the IAS should be reconsidered in the present context when they are no longer handling revenue collection for central government, the IRS presentation says.

The IRS officers have also questioned the two-year edge enjoyed by the Indian Foreign Service, seeking the pay panel to reconsider this “in the light of service conditions particularly whether any hardships are faced by them.”

A change in the composition of the civil services board, committee of secretaries and the special committee of secretaries has been sought with representation of members of other cadres.

“A rule should be made which prevents no two persons belonging to a single service to be appointed as members of these three bodies,” the IRS officers have demanded to bring in the required change in the central staffing scheme.

The IPS officers have claimed that the present system of batch-wise empanelment for senior posts is causing huge discrimination. Merit and right man for the right post is not the norm followed for selection, they said, demanding transparency in empanelment.
