Amendment in Factories Act to permit women employees in night shift

While answering to a question in Parliament yesterday, Minister Vishnu Deo said that a proposal for amendment in the Factories Act, 1948 is under active consideration of the government.

In a written reply he said, amendment of Section 66 of the Act relating to permission for employment of women for night work for a factory or group or class or description of factories with adequate safeguards for safety and provision of transportation till the doorstep of their residence.

Amendment of Sections 64 and 65 of the Act to enhance the limit of overtime hours from the present limit of 50 hours per quarter to 100 hours per quarter.

NFIR’s Memorandum to Seventh Central Pay Commission – Including Proposed Pay Structure

NFIR’s Memorandum to Seventh Central Pay Commission – Including Proposed Pay Structure

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

FOREWORD

The demand for setting up of “VII Central Pay Commission” raised by NFIR and consistent struggles by the employees in support of it, had compelled the Central Government to issue Notification vide No. 1/1/2013-E.III (A) dated 28th February 2014, constituting 7th CPC under the Chairmanship of Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur.

Thereafter, NFIR received communication from VII CPC seeking memorandum. Accordingly, this Memorandum has been drafted and finalized after lengthy discussions with Federation office Bearers and representatives of affiliated Unions.

Preparation of comprehensive and exhaustive Memorandum relating to duties, responsibilities, complexities, accountability, pay structures granted from time to time and finalizing the proposed pay structure and allowances etc., to be placed before 7th CPC covering all categories of railway employees was a gigantic task which has however been accomplished due to the co-operation and assistance extended by our office bearers and members.

Marathon Sessions commenced from June, 4, 2014 onwards in association with hundreds of Cadre as well staff and the inputs provided on job profiles of each category have contributed a lot for the preparation of this massive Memorandum. During the lengthy deliberations, NFIR Office Bearers have taken part effectively and assisted the team members for preparation of cogent draft, which has been finalized after vetting more than once. Entire NFIR Secretariat has contributed a lot by working overtime continuously during the process of shaping memorandum within the time schedule. They deserve special compliments for their devotion throughout the period of 55 days from June 4, 2014.

Every attempt has been made to bring out in the memorandum, the intricacies of the Railways working, complex nature of duties combined with risk factors besides the fact that due justice was not done by previous Pay Commissions to the rail work force to facilitate VII CPC to consider all these aspects.

I am confident that the Railway Employees would feel satisfied of the material placed in the Memorandum and equally pay structures and allowances etc., proposed for consideration of 7th CpC.

I welcome comments, observations and views of the readers which may be useful for taking further action.

BPS supplementary memorandum to 7th CPC-With 100% rise in DA/DR the ratio between minimum maximum pension has reached 1:25.7

BPS supplementary memorandum to 7th CPC-With 100% rise in DA/DR the ratio between minimum maximum pension has reached 1: 25.7

No. SG/BPS/Supli. memo/7CPC/2

Dated : 30. 07.2014

Supplementary Memorandum to 7th CPC

Discrimination  & Disparities caused by 6th CPC

(With 100% rise in DA/DR  the ratio between minimum maximum pension has reached  1: 25.7)
1. Widening of disparity in income & wealth due to Minimum Maximum Salary Ratio raised to 1:12: The minimum maximum salary ratio which had come down to 1:8 in 1996(Para 2.2.16 sixth CPC report)  which in conformity with  preamble to Constitution  should have further gone down, but was increased to 1:12 by the sixth CPC, overlooking the spirit of Indian constitutions. As pension is directly proportionate to Salary widening of minimum maximum salary ratio created vast disparity in income & wealth of highest & lowest paid . Minimum guaranteed Pension is 50% of the revised basic salary. As is clear from Para 2.1.12 to 2.1.15 of 6th CPC recommendations, while drawing comparison of Group A civil service officers’ pay packages  with that of  Public & private Sectors, VI th CPC did not accounted for service security , powers enjoyed & the latent benefits. This resulted in recommendation of disproportionate package at highest level, raising   minimum maximum salary ratio to 1:12. Consequestly with 100% rise in DA/DR  the ratio between minimum maximum pension has reached  1: 25.7causing Vast disparity in income & wealth of lowest & highest paid in civil services (Minimum salary Rs 7000 & Max. Rs 90000 of cab. Secy . Lowest Pension with DR =Rs 7000 & highest Pension with DR Rs 180000/)

and causing Vast disparity in income & wealth of lowest & highest paid in civil services (Minimum salary Rs 7000 & Max. Rs 90000 of cab. Secy) .  Pensioners at lower levels especially those corresponding to S4 to S23 pre-revised 5th CPC Scales have been  discriminated against & are the worst hit. We appeal to the commission to bring back minimum maximum Salary ratio to 1996 level i.e. 1: 8

 2. Discrimination in Parity between past and present Pensioners & within pre 2006 group of Pensioners:

In India there already exist complete parity in pension for judges of Supreme Court, High Courts, Comptroller and audit General of India(Para 137.11 of 5th CPC report) , Cab Secy & Appex Scale of 80000/. Complete  parity  has also been conceded for defence forces through OROP and to great extent  to  Scales 24 to 32 (pre-revised Vth CPC Scales) i.e. PB 4, HAG & HAG + who  are now nearer  full parity  through  varied multiplication factor  adopted by 6th CPC  & minimum guaranteed pension formula. As their revised Basic pay in pay Band 4,HAG & HAG+ revised Scales of 6th CPC is much higher (2.44 to 3.37 times) than the pre revised maximum  Basic Salary. Varied multiplication factor has also created inequality within pre2006 Pensioners group. Definitely remaining Pensioners too belong to the same category of citizens & cannot be discriminated against.

The V CPC  had observed in para 137.13 of their report that “while it is desirable to grant complete parity to all past pensioners irrespective of date of retirement, this may not be feasible straightaway as the financial implications would be considerable.  The process of bridging the gap in pensions of past and present pensioners has already been set in motion by the IV CPC. This process of attainment of reasonable parity needs to be continued so as to achieve complete parity over a period of time”.  The recommendation made in para 137.14 of their report had been accepted and implemented by the government.  While the process had to be continued further, this was not continued on the plea that VI CPC did not recommend the same (though 6th CPC did not recommend separate Scales for S,31 & 32 &33 but were given) VIth CPC going against the spirit of constitution & accepted norms of 5th CPC instead of bridging the widening gap, increased it by adopting a varying multiplication factor from 1.86 at lower levels i.e S7to S23(pre-revised 5th CPC scale) to 3.37 (S 31/HAG+Scale) at the higher level as brought out in the attached table . This resulted in denial of equal treatment within the homogenous group of  pre-1.1.2006 pensioners which  needs to be rectified retrospectively, ensuring equal rise in pension to all, through common multiplication factor.We appeal to the commission to recommend full parity to all past pensioners.  The country is on the path of registering phenomenal progress, with economy is looking up & fiscal deficit set to reduce to 3.6 by the time commissions report is expected to be out. Govt. is considering pegging-up pension of former MPs by 75%. OROP for defence, improvement in EPS 95 beneficiaries has been conceded, Parity in pension for Supreme Court, High Court Judges , CAG, Cab Secy. & apex Scale(S 33pre-revised scale) exist. Pensioners corresponding to PB4 (S24 to S29), HAG (S 30) & HAG+ (S31-32) Scales are very close to parity. Thus Pensioners corresponding to other pre revised scales & Pay Bands should not be discriminated against.

3. Anomaly  in assigning Grade pay: 

6th CPC vide their  Para 11.4 recommended: All the employees belonging to Groups ‘A’, ‘B’ , ‘C’ & ‘D’to be placed in distinct running pay bands {means one pay band each for Group C, B & 2 BP for group   ‘A’ (Para 2.2.8 of 6th CPC report). Group D stands merged with Group C } Every post, barring that of Secretary/equivalent and Cabinet Secretary/equivalent to have a distinct grade pay attached to it. Grade pay (being a fixed amount attached to each post in the hierarchy) to determine the status of a post with (apart from the two apex scales of Secretary/equivalent and Cabinet Secretary/equivalent that do not carry any grade pay) a senior post being given higher grade pay.  Its very clear from the above that Grade Pay is indicative of the status of the post as such it needs to be assigned according to the post from which the pensioner retired & not according to the scale from which he/she retired. But In implementation of modified parity injustice has been done to several sections of pre 2006 pensioners who retired from the posts held during IV CPC and V CPC period.  This happened mainly due to denial of modified parity as per corresponding Grade Pay of the post.  This has resulted in those who retired from the same posts & same length of service prior to revision falling behind their counterparts who retired from service after revision.  Some categories of staff suffered downgrading.  To illustrate the point, it is submitted that a Group ‘B’ Gazetted officer who retired in IV CPC scale on or before 31.12.95  has been  equated to a non-gazetted senior supervisor .  With grade pay of Rs.4200 w.e.f., 1.1.2006 indicating his status as Group C non- Gazetted . This puts a question mark on the very concept of GP & need rectification retrospectively. We suggest that modified  parity  may be implemented as per the post from which the pensioner retired.

Same fitment formula for absorbed BSNL pensioners

BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) was carved out of DoT and the employees working in Department of Telecom were enmasse transferred to BSNL on optional basis.  Before formation of BSNL, there were several rounds of discussion with unions.  It was agreed to extend the retirement benefits on combined service in accordance with CCS Pension Rules 1972.  The Government of India agreed to pay pension/family pension from ‘Consolidated fund’.  Accordingly Rule 37-A was incorporated in CCS Pension Rules 1972 which was published in Government Gazette on 30/9/2000.

The employees of DoT were absorbed in BSNL in the year 2002 but with retrospective effect from 1/10/2000.  Their pay scales were also revised from CDA pattern to IDA pattern retrospectively from 1/10/2000 with industrial dearness allowance.  The employees who retired from BSNL after 1/10/2000 have rendered their maximum service in Department of Telecom.  Most of them have served in DoT for more than 30 years.  Most of the 6th CPC recommendations like Gratuity, Enhanced Pension, Age-related additional pension, Minimum/Maximum pension etc. were made applicable for those BSNL retirees.  The Government of India is honouring its commitment of paying pension from the Consolidated fund.  Infact those who retired from BSNL after 1/10/2000 are actually BSNL retirees but Government Pensioners.

Their pension was calculated on the basis of last 10 months average emoluments for those who retired prior to 1/1/2006 and 50% of last pay drawn or last 10 months average whichever is beneficial for those who retired after 1/1/2006 as per 6th CPC recommendations and they are getting industrial dearness allowance every three months.  Their pension was revised w.e.f. 1/1/2007 on the basis of pay revision effected from 1/1/2007 for serving employees in BSNL.  The pay revision from 1/1/2007 for BSNL employees was implemented on the basis of recommendations of Second Pay Revision Committee for Public Sector Employees headed by Justice Jagannath Rao.  But for those who retired from BSNL after 1/1/2006, the recommendations of 6th CPC, like 50% of last pay drawn as pension, Minimum pension of Rs.3500/- Enhanced family pension for 10 years for those who died in harness etc. were implemented from 1/1/2006 onwards.  This duality should be put an end to.

The absorbed employees in BSNL from DoT are covered under CCS Pension Rules 1972.  Explanation under sub-rule 8 of Rule 37-A of CCS Pension Rules 1972 states “The amount of pension/family pension of the absorbed employee on retirement or on death from Public Sector undertaking shall be calculated in the same way as calculated in the case of a Central Government servant, retiring or dying on the same day”.

The Department of telecom vide its O.M.No.40-13/2002-PEN.(T) dated 15/1/2003 clarified the following doubts:-

Doubt 3 – What will be the emoluments for determining the retirement Gratuity/Death Gratuity on IDA pay scales?

Clarification – As per Rule 50 (5) of CCS (Pension) Rules, the emoluments for the purpose of Gratuity admissible shall be reckoned in accordance with Rule 33, provided that if the emoluments of the Government servant have been reduced during the last 10 months of his service, otherwise than as a penalty, average emoluments as referred to in Rule 34 shall be treated as emoluments.

Doubt 4 – Whether the minimum pension of Rs.1275 p.m. as well as maximum pension of Rs.15000 p.m. (i.e., 50% of average emoluments in all cases) as applicable in the CDA pay scale is also to be applicable in IDA pay scales?

Clarification – The ceiling minimum and maximum pension as existing in CCS (Pension) Rules shall continue unless specifically approved otherwise by the Government.

Doubt 5 – Whether commutation of pension as applicable at 40% (maximum) on CDA pay scale is also to be applicable in IDA pay scales?

Clarification – Yes.

Hence they should be considered as Government Pensioners.  6th Pay Commission’s recommendations were made applicable to them except the fitment formula.  We request that the fitment formula recommended by 7th CPC, be made applicable to them also.  The only difference may be, it would be in IDA Pay and IDR instead of CDA Pay and CDR.  Sub-rule 10 of Rule 37-A of CCS Pension Rules 1972 states “In addition to pension or family pension, as the case may be, the employees who opted for combined service shall also be eligible to Dearness Relief as per industrial dearness Allowance pattern”.  Further, as per the Apex Court judgement, Pay and DA/DR should be on IDA pattern only after 1980.

The commission is requested to consider this demand, applying the same fitment formula to absorbed BSNL pensioners on par with Central Government Pensioners, without changing the IDA pattern, positively and recommend to the Government accordingly.

Additional new benefits sought :

1.   Children’s educational allowance and hostel subsidy:

These benefits need to be extended mutatis mutandis to children of retired and deceased employees.  The death or retirement of an employee should not make any difference in the above regard.  Many retired employees have school and college going children because of late marriages.

2.   Festival advance or grant:

Festival advance equivalent to one month’s basic pension/family pension to be recovered in 12 equal  monthly installments will not only  help the pensioner to celebrate at least one festival in a year with children and grand children giving them gifts etc., on the occasion but also serve as an interest free advance.  Alternatively, they should be granted a substantial amount every year as festival grant.

3.   Secondary Family Pension to dependent unmarried son up to 28 years of age:

This may kindly be considered as recruitment age for certain posts under central government is presently 28 years.  Marriage of a dependent son should not be a bar for this benefit as marriage does not make any difference to the financial position unlike in the case of a married daughter.

4.   Secondary family pension to dependent widowed/divorced daughter:

It is now being restricted only to those daughters who become divorced or widowed during the life time of deceased employee/pensioner/family pensioner.  This restriction is contrary to the very purpose for and the spirit with which this benefit was conceived.  The idea is that an unmarried/widowed daughter should not be left in the lurch and exposed to undue financial hardship after the death of the parents with no other support.  The commission are therefore requested to remove the above restriction.

5.   Secondary family pension to dependent widowed daughter-in-law:

The responsibility of widowed daughter-in -law and her minor children devolves on the pensioner/family pensioner after son’s death. It is a cause of great anxiety and worry for the pensioner/family pensioner having dependent widowed daughter-in-law.  Though dependent widowed daughters of pensioners/family pensioners are extended the above benefit, in many cases they don’t have parents drawing pension/family pension.  Even otherwise, the primary reasonability of looking after them is that of the father-in-law as he cannot leave them to their fate after the death of the son.  As such the above benefit will go a long way in helping such hapless widows and their minor children.  Such cases will be very few and do not entail much financial burden to the exchequer.  This issue has earlier been raised in the SCOVA.  Matter needs to be considered from a humanitarian angle in the context of Indian family system.

6.   Physically handicapped allowance:

This is granted to PH employees while in service.  This needs to be continued even after their retirement also.

7.   Financial assistance to pensioners:

Pensioners irrespective of age have to be provided with bank loans at concessional rates of interest to meet expenditure on children’s higher education, marriages of daughters and construction/purchase of dwelling units.

8.   Running of old age homes: All Central government departments should run old age homes for their retired employees with attached medical facilities.  Railways should run such homes for their retired employees.

9.   Transport Allowance:

The phenomenal increase in the cost of transport needs no proof.  Pensioners perforce have to spend considerable amounts towards transport.  They have to attend to their day to day needs either themselves or by engaging someone for the purpose in view of the nuclear family system.  The traffic not only in big cities and towns but also in smaller places has been growing by leaps and bounds.  It is difficult for pensioners to venture out alone and they need a companion to go to hospitals and dispensaries or to attend social functions.  As such, transport allowance in one form or another has to be granted to pensioners.  The Commission are requested to consider the demand sympathetically’.

Confederation Proposed New Pay Structure and Rate of Increment in its memorandum to 7th Pay Commission

Confederation Proposed New Pay Structure and Rate of Increment in its memorandum to 7th Pay Commission

Proposed Pay Structure and Rate of Increment

In the preceding chapters we have dealt with the various principles of pay determination as was enunciated by the successive Pay Commissions. The 6th CPC introduced the new concept of Pay Band and Grade Pay. We are not able to comprehend any logical methodology having been adopted by the 6th CPC in constructing the Pay Band and Grade Pay. In the ultimate analysis, we found that there had been no uniform multiplication factor. It varied from 2.2 time to 3. The changes effected by the Government while implementing the recommendations of the 6th CPC further compounded the confusion and making it more irrational and arbitrary.

The 6th CPC in their report stated that they have upgraded certain pay scales having appreciated the contention made by the employees organizations. They merged certain other pay scales in an effort to delayering the functions. But the new pay that emerged from such upgradation/merger was not equivalent to the higher pay scales in the said group. For instance, the erstwhile pay scales of Rs.5000-8000, 5500-9000 and 6500-10500 were merged. The multiplication factor for pay band construction was 1.86 times of the minimum. Therefore the pay band for the pre merged pay scales was determined to begin at Rs.9300/-. Having merged, the pay band must have begun at 12,090/-, i.e. 1.86 times of 6500/- in which the other pay scales were merged.

7.2 The manner in which the Grade pay was devised is also questionable. At the lower level the Grade Pay progresses @ Rs.100/- ,i.e. 1800, 1900, 2000, etc. The pay in the Band + Grade Pay at the entry level is 5200 + 1800 = 7000. An employee is entitled for 3% increment every year. He gets a financial benefit of Rs. 210 every year on account an increment whereas on promotion his grade pay gets increased by just Rs.100/- only. The Grade Pay was devised at 40% of the maximum of the pre revised time scale of pay. The maximum of any time scale of pay will depend upon the rate of increment and the span of the scale of pay. The ratio between the minimum and the maximum of all pay scales was not uniform, rather it could not be uniform.

Therefore, prescribing Grade Pay as a percentage of such variable maximum, in our opinion, was erroneous. Normally fitment benefit represent the gap between pre revised minimum and the revised minimum. The 6th CPC recommendation of Grade Pay did not serve this purpose also. Having been expressed in absolute quantum amount it gave varied benefit in different pay bands as also at different stages in the same pay bands.

7.3 The Grade Pay system brought about various anomalies, which were raised at the NAC but found no resolution despite discussions on several occasions in the last 6 years. We are of the firm view that the 7th CPC should revert to the Pay Scale System which has been time tested. We have constructed the pay scales maintaining the relativities with the time scale of pay suggested by both 5th and 6th CPC.

7.4 While constructing the pay scales we have taken the rate of increments at 5% instead of 3% presently available. We have done so on the ground that most of the PSUs including the banking industries provide the incremental rate at 5% and over a period of time it raises the salary level of the personnel. We therefore request that the 7th CPC may recommend the rate of annual increment at 5%. Incidentally we may also state that the uniform date of increment prescribed by the 6th CPC has encountered certain problems and anomalies. We, therefore, suggest that the 7th CPC may recommend, for administrative expediency, two specific dates as increment dates, Viz. 1st January and 1st July. Those recruited/appointed/promoted during the period between 1st January and 30th June will have their increment date on 1st January and those recruited/appointed/promoted between 1st July and 31st December will have it on 1st July next year. This apart we request the Commission to specifically recommend that those who retire on 30th June or 31st December are granted one increment on the last day of their service.

7.5 We have also felt that a further reduction in the number of pay scales is needed. While constructing the pay scales we have removed those pay scales pertaining to Grade Pay of Rs.1900, 2400, 4600, 8700 and the scale of pay of Rs. 75500-80000. We are of the opinion that the instrument of Special Pay which was in operation earlier should be brought back to address the need of intermediary grades in certain organizations. The Associations and Federations representing the employees and officers of various departments and various categories will submit their memorandum indicating the pay scales to be assigned to the categories of the employees and officers they represent taking into account the nature of functions assigned to those categories separately.

7.6 Presently, functional promotion is made to the next hierarchical position whereas MACP promotion is Grade Pay based, irrespective of the fact whether a particular Grade Pay exist in the hierarchy or not in the concerned department. Our suggestion to reduce the number of pay scales go a great extent to obviate the difficulty encountered due to the dual system of promotion.

7.7 We have constructed open- ended pay scales. This is to ensure that no employee stagnates without increment. The pay of the Secretary and the Cabinet Secretary has been kept as a fixed amount as has been the recommendation of the 6th CPC. In consonance with our view on the need for further de-layering, we have suggested only 14 Pay scales indicating in the table the minimum of each of them. The said 14 pay scales are given below:
In Table 7.2, the corresponding pay scales of the 6th CPC recommended Grade Pay are given for reference.

Soon, a 75% hike in monthly pension for ex-mps- Will the govt. adopt similar attitude to revise Pension of C.G & State Govt pensioners?

Soon, a 75% hike in monthly pension for ex-mps- Will the govt. adopt similar attitude to revise Pension of C.G & State Govt pensioners?

Soon, a 75% hike in monthly pension for ex-mps

NEW DELHI: Former MPs, whose pensions were last revised in 2009, may now see a hefty hike in their retirement benefits. Government sources told HT that the monthly pension for exMPs is likely to go up to Rs.35,000 a month from Rs.20,000 a month — a 75% hike.

A major breakthrough in pensions for ex-MPs came under the first NDA government, led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee when they introduced pension for all MPs irrespective of their tenure. Earlier, only MPs who had completed a 5-year term were entitled to post-retirement benefits.
The Modi government is also set to increase the rate of additional pension for each completed year in excess of five years. The centre is considering additional pension of Rs.2,000 per month instead of the current rate of Rs.1,500.

In other words, if a parliamentarian has served for seven years, he or she will get monthly four thousand additional pension on the top of his basic pension of Rs.35,000.

Sitting MPs, who have received routine hikes to keep up with inflation, currently get a salary of Rs.50,000 per month. The additional perks and allowances include Rs.45,000 per month as constituency allowance, Rs.2,000 daily if he attends parliament and Rs.30,000 for secretarial assistance, among other things.

Parliament’s nod is required to enhance the former MPs’ pension. Government sources added that the legal amendments will be brought in the winter session after inter-ministerial consultations.

In sync with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s thrust on welfare of women, the definition of “dependents” for family pension will also include divorced or widowed daughters of former MPs.

The government is also mulling the option of providing family pension for a much longer period of time after the MPs demise.

The pension for former MPs was introduced during the tenure of Indira Gandhi — Rs.3,000 per month — but only for those who completed a term in Parliament.

In 2009, UPA government enhanced it to Rs.20,000 per month.

New conditions imposed on State Government officers looking for Central Government deputations

According to the new regulation, I.A.S, I.P.S and I.F.S officials who were accused of corruption, or those who had failed to submit their annual property details, shall not be eligible for central government appointments.

Union Public Service Commission has issued new guidelines in this regard. Here are the details:

I.A.S, I.P.S, and I.F.S officials interested in taking up deputation duties for the Central Government as Joint Secretaries or in equivalent ranks, should not have been tainted by corruption. They should also have regularly filed detailed annual reports of the properties, assets and liabilities owned by them and their families. Failure to file the report, even for a year, would lead to disqualification. In addition to this, officials who were found to be corrupt, and those who were not given clearance certificate by the department of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption, shall be disqualified from Central Government deputations.

Certain concessions are given to officers of these cadres belonging to the backward and tribal communities, female officers, officers from the north-east provinces. I.A.S officers interested in taking up Central Government deputations, in the ranks of Joint Secretary or its equivalent positions, should have served a minimum of 17 years. Only then will they be eligible for the post of Joint Secretary.

An expert committee will be formed for the selection of Joint Secretaries. The committee will examine the annual confidential reports on the civil servants, and a number of other such reports and records before recommending the names to the posts of Joint Secretaries.

July 31 is the Last Date to File the Income Tax Returns

July 31 is the Last Date to File the Income Tax Returns
July 31 is the last date to file the tax returns for individuals. Here are some information that might be useful for filing tax returns:
• Should those with income below the taxable limits also file the tax returns?
Individuals with separate income and Pan card need not file tax returns. But, it is better if they do it. This is especially true if they are investing in real estate or gold. It will be very useful for tax assessments in future.
• Should we file the tax returns only through auditors?
If you are very thorough with the income tax regulations and have a good grasp over the filing procedures, then you can file the returns yourselves. If your annual income is over Rs. 1 Crore, then your returns have to be audited by a qualified auditor before filing. The last date for filing audited returns is September 30. Failing to file the returns could attract a penalty of 0.5% of your total income or Rs. 1.5 lakhs, whichever is lesser.

• Procedure for filing tax returns if you are living in smaller towns:
You can find out the ward that you belong to by logging in at the income tax department website, http://incometaxindia.gov.in/ . Those returns that have not been audited can be filed by filling up the relevant forms. The returns can be filed online too. If your income tax account is maintained online, then you will have to file your returns online too. It is preferable to file the returns online. You will get your tax reimbursements without any hassles if you choose to file online.
• Can I make the tax payments now and file the returns later?
If tax returns for the Financial Year 2013-14 are filed after July 31, how much penalty will it attract? You can file delayed tax returns for up to one year. But, you will have to pay penalties under Section 234A. The minimum amount for failure to pay taxes in the given Financial Year is Rs. 5000. You will be exempted from paying the penalty if you could give valid and acceptable reasons for your failure to pay the taxes on time.

DA MERGER & INTERIM RELIEF – CONFEDERATION WRITES TO SECRETARY JCM STAFF SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
Central Headquarters
1st floor, North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi-110 001.

Dated : 23.07.2014

Com. Shiv Gopal Misra,
Secretary,
Staff Side, National Council, JCM
13 C Feroze Shah Road,
New Delhi. 110 001.

Dear Comrade,
Sub: Memorandum of Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.

The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government employees and workers places on record its appreciation over the efforts of the Staff Side, JCM, National Council in preparing and submitting the memorandum to the 7th Central Pay Commission, which has received the widest acceptance and admiration of the Central Government employees. Since the last date for submitting the Department-specific memorandum has been got extended by your efforts uptill 31st July, 2014, the first phase of our endeavour and interaction with the 7th CPC will come to a conclusion in a few days’ time.

I have been directed by the National Secretariat of the Confederation which met on 17th July, 2014 to solicit your kind reference to the memorandum submitted by the Staff Side on behalf of all Federations, Unions, Associations on Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance. We are of the view that the Staff Side, in pursuance of the said memorandum, must seek an audience with the Pay Commission immediately to know the course of action the Commission would like to take in the matter. We must also seek an appointment with the honourable Finance Minister thereafter so as to ensure that a decision on our demands is taken by the Government without any further delay. We hope we need not emphasise the fact that the Central Government employees do expect financial benefit on this score as the erosion in the real value of wages as on date is phenomenal.

We shall be grateful if you will indicate to us your line of approach in the matter.

Thanking you and with greetings,

Yours fraternally,
M. Krishnan
Secretary General.

OROP Latest News: A high level meeting was taken up by Defence Minister on July 16, 2014

OROP Latest News: A high level meeting was taken up by Defence Minister on July 16, 2014

Whether OROP for ex-servicemen? Hindustan Times Article by Mandeep Singh Bajwa reported that a high level meeting was taken by the defence minister on July 16.  Some contents of the said news is reproduced below:

The demand for one rank one pension (OROP) was accepted by the previous government and a provision of Rs. 500 crore was made in the interim budget. The new government, stating its intention to implement the demand many times, has also provided for it in the regular budget. However, veterans are nowhere near getting the enhanced pensions envisaged. What is the current status on OROP?

A high-level meeting was taken by the defence minister on July 16 to thrash out issues with Service Chiefs, staff of Services headquarters and the top brass of the defence ministry, including defence accounts and the department of ex-servicemen’s welfare attending.

Also present were the representatives of four major ex-servicemen’s organisations to give inputs and plead their case. Regrettably, the meeting was inconclusive. A deadlock was created over the most basic issue, the very definition of OROP between bureaucrats of the MOD on one side and the uniformed fraternity plus the veterans on the other. The defence minister stated that the Koshiyari Committee’s definition of OROP might not be acceptable to the government now. His remark to veterans to lower their expectations reveals the stand of the government on the issue, causing consternation among them.

The political executive as well as the people of this country must realise that OROP is not a concession but is meant to offset restricted terms of service to soldiers wherein they are retired at a very young age. Here, the definition set by the Koshiyari Committee must prevail in that OROP implies that uniform pension be paid to Armed Forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement, and any future enhancement in the rates of pension to be automatically passed on to past pensioners. It is significant that this explanation had already been accepted by the government. My take is that the government needs to show political will and make good on its promises.

DoPT launches e-service record system for government employees

DoPT launches e-service record system for government employees

With the objective to promote a paperless regime and better human resource management, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has launched an e-service record book portal for government employees.

“Under the personnel information management system of e-office, the DoPT has extended the facility to its employees to view their service book online. All the other ministries have been advised to extend the facility to the civilian employees working under them,” said an official.

Earlier documented in paper files, the service record provides information on various portfolios and posts held by a particular government employee.

“In future, it would also prove to be of great assistance in an efficient management of human resource. The system can facilitate work allocation based on the skills and experiences of the employees under consideration for a particular post or department,” said the official, adding that the priority is to pick the best and suitable candidate for better output.The DoPT has also launched a Basic Leadership Skills Module for Central Secretariat Services officers at the Institute of Secretariat Training and Management. The module is expected to equip civil servants with the skills that help them function efficiently in a complex and challenging environment.

“All levels of civil service need to be trained in leadership skills so that they impart their duties effectively,” said the official.

The Department plans to introduce similar modules for mid-level and advanced leadership skill development.

A Learning Resource Centre has also been set up with a mandate to identify and adopt the leading national and international practices in the field of training techniques and technologies to strengthen the Trainers Development Programme, to develop a cadre of high quality trainers.

“This would reduce the financial burden otherwise incurred on foreign trips often undertaken by government functionaries for skill training,” said the official. Both the training activities have been supported by the UNDP, under the Strengthening the Human Resource Management for Civil Services Project.

Special Feature of 2014’s Central Budget: Own house for all by 2022

Special Feature of 2014’s Central Budget: Own house for all by 2022

The new Government at the Centre has sworn to ensure that by 2022, each and everyone has a house of their own. The government plans to make this possible by increasing the tax exemptions given to house loans. The Government also plans to encourage youngsters to own houses.

Low-cost housing projects will be introduced through the National Housing Banks. This will enable people of the economically weaker sections living in the cities to build their own houses. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has announced that the Government has set aside Rs. 4000 Crores in the 2014-15 budget. In order to further strengthen it, the Government plans to invite foreign investment in this area. The Government is also ready to explore other options.

Jaitley has also announced that the Government is giving serious thoughts about bringing the slum rehabilitation programme under the Corporate Social Responsibility umbrella. This is in order to increase the participation of the private sector in this area. Loans to construct houses in villages are being given under the various rural housing development schemes.

Comparative study on the pay scales of LDC & UDCs of Kerala State and Central Government

Comparative study on the pay scales of LDC & UDCs of Kerala State and Central Government

LDC-UDC ISSUE:
The comments of Shri George Antony, Kalpakkam on the Memorandum submitted to the 7th Pay Commission by this Association is given below: Shri Antony has made a comparative study on the pay scales of LDC & UDCs of Kerala State and Central Government wherein it has seen that the LDC/UDC posted in Central Government are being paid much less pay than the pay of LDC/UDC of Kerala State.

All our friends are requested to send useful material in support of the demands put up by us to the 7th CPC to this Association so that the same may be used during oral evidence.

TKR Pillai

I have gone through your memorandum to 7th CPC. After analyzing the past pay commissions and various state government pay commissions, I have observed some facts which I would like to share with you. This may be useful for your meeting with 7th CPC in the nearby future. The observations are listed below for your consideration.
1) There is a general conception that central gov. employee’s pay is more than state gov. employee’s pay. But this is not true in many cases.
Kerala gov. employee’s pay is more than central gov. employee’s pay in many equivalent posts like LDC, UDC etc.
