Centre, states reach consensus on GST rollout from July 1

Centre, states reach consensus on GST rollout from July 1

New Delhi: In a significant breakthrough in implementation of India’s biggest tax reform, the deadlock over administration of GST ended on Monday after the Centre agreed to allow states control over most of small taxpayers, but the rollout date was pushed back by 3 months to July 1.

The split of GST taxpayers between the two will be done horizontally with states getting to administer and control 90 per cent of the asseesses below INR 1.5 crore annual turnover, and the remaining 10 per cent coming under the Centre.

The Centre and states will share control of assessees with annual turnover of over INR 1.5 crore in 50:50 ratio even as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley insisted that each tax payer will be assessed only once and by only one authority.

Besides ceding control, the Centre also agreed to the demand of coastal states, allowing them to tax economic activity in 12 nautical miles even though constitutionally the Centre has jurisdiction over territorial waters.

“This is a significant headway,” Jaitley said after the meeting.

While a four-rate tax slab of 5, 12, 18 and 28 per cent had already been reached, a consensus on the administration of the Goods and Services Tax – which will subsume central and state levies like excise duty, service tax and VAT – paved the way for finalisation of the draft supporting laws.

Jaitley said the draft of Integrated GST or IGST, the tax which will be levied by the Centre on inter-state movement of goods and services, as well as SGST and CGST will be finalised in the next meeting of the GST Council on February 18.

Once approved, the Council will then decide on taxing various goods and services in different tax slabs, he said.

The stalemate over administration of GST had been holding up consensus in the GST Council since early November with four successive meetings failing to break the deadlock as the Centre was not in favour of a horizontal split. It said states did not have the expertise to administer levies like service tax.

The Centre also did not favour dual agencies auditing and scrutinising each taxpayer as multiple authorities could end up acting at cross-purposes.

With the legislative calendar drawn up, Jaitley said “realistic” date for implementation of GST will be July 1 instead of previously planned April 1.

Since GST is a transactional tax, which is to be levied when a sale takes place, it does not necessarily have to be implemented from the beginning of the fiscal, he said.

Budget 2017 – Expectations of the Salaried Class

Budget 2017 – Expectations of the Salaried Class

With the Union Budget 2017 just a couple of weeks away, there are expectations that the government will take some measures to help the common man, especially the salaried class, who has rallied behind the government’s decision on demonetization despite suffering a lot post the note ban.

Experts are also of the view that the upcoming Budget 2017 should provide some tax gain for the common people to soothe at least the cash ban pain.

Otherwise also, “there are only a few tax concessions available to individual tax payers. Most of the current set of tax benefits like medical reimbursement, conveyance allowance etc., at the present level, do not offer any real economic benefit to the individual tax payers.

Instead they only add to the administrative burden for the employers as claims made by the employees have to be reviewed and processed by them,” says Vikas Vasal, National Leader-Tax, Grant Thornton India LLP.

Thus, either these tax benefits should be substantially increased or they should be done away with and instead a special tax benefit like the erstwhile standard deduction be introduced. “This would simplify the tax law, reduce administrative burden and curtail unnecessary litigation associated with these tax concessions,” suggests Vasal.

In view of the above, here’s what to expect from the Budget 2017 for the salaried class:

1. Tax slab rates should be revised upwards

It is widely expected that there may be some upward revision in the income tax slabs to provide some relief to the common tax payers. What is making people more optimistic is the recent hint from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley himself that income tax slabs could further be increased, lowering the tax burden on taxpayers due to higher revenue being collected on account of cashless systems.

Some people are even expecting that the government should increase the current income tax exemption limit from Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 4 lakh. However, the common expectation is that the exemption limit be raised from the current Rs 2.50 lakh per annum to Rs 3 lakh, while the subsequent slabs of 10 per cent, 20 per cent and 30 per cent should be applicable to annual income range of above Rs 3 lakh and up to Rs 10 lakh, above Rs 10 lakh and up to Rs 20 lakh and above Rs 20 lakh, respectively. If implemented, this will help alleviate the common man’s sufferings to some extent.

2. Reduction in tax rates

Salaried individuals are always at a loss when it comes to tax rates since they end up paying high amount of taxes when they fall into high salary brackets. Currently anyone who earns more than Rs. 10 lakh per annum pays 30% tax on the amount exceeding Rs. 10 lakh. Thus, he has to forgo a large portion of his income in taxes. Hence, apart from revision in tax slabs, change in tax rates would always be a welcome move.

“The IDS scheme of the government launched last year is expected to add a lot of tax revenues to the government coffers with almost Rs. 75,000 crore declared as black money. Considering a tax rate of 45%, almost Rs. 35,000 will be collected as taxes. These revenues are expected to help the government reduce the tax rates in the coming FY,” informs Vaibhav Sankla, Director, H&R Block India.

3. Higher deduction for interest paid on housing loan

Housing and the real estate sector are facing a lot of hardship. The recent media reports indicate that sales have declined substantially and the sentiment is quite low. It is a fact that the real estate sector is one of the key growth engines for a developing economy like India.

It provides large-scale employment to unskilled and semi-skilled workers in the country, which is a need of the hour, to boost employment opportunities for a large scale population. This sector also impacts a few of the critical sectors like cement, steel, logistics etc., which in turn are important for the overall growth of the GDP.

Also, “keeping in view the government’s agenda of providing housing for all, it is imperative that some tax concessions are provided in the Budget. One such option could be to increase the tax deduction for interest paid on housing loan from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 3 lakh. This will also provide an immediate boost to the banking services sector, which is flush with funds post demonetization and looking at avenues to lend money to the masses,” says Vasal.

Some tax experts also believe that people having a single home need to be allowed to deduct the entire amount paid as interest on home loan. Vaibhav Sankla, for instance, says that currently the home loan interest deduction is capped at Rs. 2 lakh per annum for self-occupied house property and deduction of actual interest paid is allowed for a second home that is given on rent or is deemed rented.

However, “nowadays buying a second home is not very common owing to high property prices. In such cases, home owners possessing a single home need to be allowed to deduct the entire amount paid as interest on home loan. This would be a welcome relief for salaried individuals since they do not have much scope for tax saving and moreover this is an expense-based deduction,” says Sankla.

4. Increase in deduction for insurance premium

The deduction under 80D is currently capped at Rs. 25,000 for self, spouse and dependent children. An additional deduction of Rs. 25,000 is available for parents and Rs. 30,000 if they are senior citizen parents. Hence the total deduction available under this section can go up to Rs. 55,000. A deduction for preventive medical expenses is also available up to Rs. 5,000 spent as a part of the overall deduction.

A deduction for the actual expenses made in this regard on medical insurance premiums will be a welcome move since insurance premiums are very high, especially when it comes to parents. The cap of Rs. 5,000 on preventive health check-up expenses should also be removed in budget 2017. It will help salaried individuals to save huge amounts in taxes.

5. Increase in deduction for education and childcare expenses

Childcare nowadays has become very expensive for parents, especially for those staying in metro cities. The maximum deduction for tuition fees permitted under Section 80C is Rs 1.5 lakh per financial year, with deductions eligible only for two children per assessee. Tuition fees generally constitute a very small portion of the entire education fees for the year. This deduction should be extended to other portions of the fees as well.

“Childcare in big cities also calls for daycare expenses, especially for working parents. The expenses many a time run into more than Rs 1-2 lakh per annum. These expenses should also form a part of deductions under Section 80C. This will provide another expense-based deduction to individuals and be a great move towards providing a deduction aimed at working parents,” says Sankla.

6. Deduction for rent paid where no HRA is paid by the organization

Generally, organisations pay HRA to employees in order to ease the burden of rent and there is an exemption available under the tax laws on HRA. However, there are instances when organisations do not include HRA in the salary components.

When HRA is not paid by the organization, salaried individuals are being allowed a deduction of Rs. 5,000 per month under Section 80GG from FY2016-17. This deduction should be increased to at least Rs. 10,000 for metro cities. This is because rent for a decent accommodation in metro cities has risen to this level and there is a need to increase the deduction so that salaried individuals get the benefit of this deduction.

7. Standard Deduction

There are many deductions/ exemptions like medical reimbursement, conveyable allowance, meal allowances etc. Employees actually incur much more cost and obtain very little tax benefit. To highlight, a family of four members will incur on an average, say, Rs 50,000 plus on general medical ailments. And if the family has senior/ailing households, then this expenditure for general hospital/doctor visits and medicines may be much higher.

Therefore, there is need to take a re-look at all such benefits and increase them substantially in line with the current economic reality. Same is the case with other tax benefits like travel allowance etc. Keeping this in view, there is need for a special tax benefit like the erstwhile standard deduction to be introduced the budget 2017.

PFRDA to organise National Pension System service fortnight from February 1

PFRDA to organise National Pension System service fortnight from February 1

“In order to ensure availability of information and ease problem, PFRDA and NSDL/CRA send various communications regularly to promote awareness regarding NPS.

The activities scheduled to be taken up during the fortnight (Feb 1-15), include updating subscriber details, printing of transaction statement for the subscribers, resolving grievances and addressing issues of pending exit/withdrawals under NPS.

PFRDA will organise a service fortnight from February 1 for building subscribers awareness and disseminate information regarding National Pension System (NPS) – the government’s flagship pension programme. According to the Pension Fund and Regulatory Development Authority (PFRDA), subscribers and employees of the central and state governments are not fully aware about NPS which leads to a large number of queries and grievances.

“In order to ensure availability of information and ease problem, PFRDA and NSDL/CRA send various communications regularly to promote awareness regarding NPS.

“However, it has been observed that in absence of latest contact details in their NPS accounts, most of the subscribers are not receiving such communication,” the regulator said.

Therefore, during the awareness fortnight at offices of central and state governments, besides sharing information, nodal offices and the subscribers will be apprised about the need of updating their personal data to enable the system to work effectively.

The activities scheduled to be taken up during the fortnight (Feb 1-15), include updating subscriber details, printing of transaction statement for the subscribers, resolving grievances and addressing issues of pending exit/withdrawals under NPS.

PFRDA said the central ministries and state governments will be required to encourage the subscribers attached to them for downloading mobile apps. The maximum number of downloads of the app will be awarded.

The regulator said that downloading of mobile app by the subscribers will considerably reduce the dependence on the nodal officers.

“This will result in saving time and efforts of the nodal officers,” it said. As on November 30, 2016 there were about 1.4 crore subscribers under NPS with over Rs 1.61 lakh crore asset under management.

7th Pay Commission: Will BJP pay the price for not implementing 7CPC before Assembly polls?

7th Pay Commission: Will BJP pay the price for not implementing 7CPC before Assembly polls?

The state governments, especially those ruled by opposition parties, used the 7th Pay Commission recommendations as an effective tool to woo voters ahead of Assembly polls.

New Delhi, Jan 16: Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government approved the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission in June last year. It’s been six months and the Modi government is yet implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. However the state governments, especially those ruled by opposition parties, used the 7th Pay Commission recommendations as an effective tool to woo voters ahead of Assembly polls. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his Uttarakhand counterpart Harish Rawat outsmarted the Modi government on implementation of the 7th Pay Commission ahead of Assembly elections in their states. Will the BJP pay the price for not implementing the 7th Pay Commission before Assembly polls?

The Assembly Elections will be held in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur in the first quarter of the year. Of the five states, three – Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa – have announced they will implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. While Uttar Pradesh is governed by Samajwadi Party, Uttarakhand in under Congress rule. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in power in Goa.

When the demonetisation drive of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was making headlines in December last year, Chief Minister Harish Rawat led Uttarakhand government announced it will implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. Uttarakhand was the first to implement the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations. With the populist announcement, Harish Rawat hopes to fight anti-incumbency in the state.

Similarly, Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav announced implementation of the 7th Pay Commission on December 13 last year, months before the crucial Assembly polls. The implementation of the 7th Pay Commission is likely to benefit more than 21 lakh state government employees, teachers and pensioners. The move is being seen by many as an attempt to offer sops to the government employees ahead of the crucial state assembly polls in 2017.

Goa, where the ruling BJP is fighting with Congress and Aam Aadmi Party, also announced it will implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations before the model code of conduct came into force on January 4.

With pay hike decision under the 7th Pay Commission, the parties holding power in poll-bound states are trying to influence about 28 lakh employees and pensioners, and their dependents during the upcoming polls. On the other hand, the Modi government lost this battle politically as the model code of has come into force. It means the Modi government cannot announce the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission before March 8, by when the assembly polls would be over and budget presented.

7th Pay Commission: Good news for autonomous bodies as government may give them salary hike, but with conditions

7th Pay Commission: Good news for autonomous bodies as government may give them salary hike, but with conditions

The finance ministry has also made arrangements for those autonomous body employees who do not meet these criteria to get salaries as per the revised pay scale.

The Ministry of Finance has come up with some good news for employees of autonomous bodies that are present under various departments and ministries of the Central government: These workers will get benefits of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) although there is a string of conditions attached to the implementation.

These employees have expressed frustration in the past saying their wages have not been increased despite repeated assurances since the middle of last year. They were also disappointed over the news that their dues could get delayed further due to various reasons.

Now, the Ministry of Finance has said in a memorandum that the employees of these autonomous bodies – which are expected to be “financially self-sufficient” so as not to burdent the state exchequer – may get a revised pay scale as per the part of their salaries that deals with allowances, including dearness, house-rent and transport.

According to the ministry’s memorandum, the allowances of these employees can be increased in correlation with the pay panel recommendations only on the following three conditions:

1. The “conditions of service” of employees of an autonomous body, in particular those that pertain to work hours and over-time payment, are same as to those of the Central government employees.

2. The revised pay scale will also apply to those who opt for the aforementioned “conditions of service.”

3. The pension and provident fund deductions of these employees will happen on the basis of their revised pay structure.

Payments on other components of the salary will be revised to the CPC recommendations, said the memorandum. For other autonomous body enmployees

For employees of autonomous bodies, the working conditions of which do not match those of Central government employees, the ministry has proposed setting up of a group of officers for each autonomous body – with the departmental or ministerial financial advisor acting as the finance ministry’s representative – to determine whether and how much of an increase these employees will get. Of course, their recommendations will be implemented only after the ministry approves it.

The memorandum added: “The Central government has not taken any decision so far in regard to various allowances based on the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of Central government employees and, therefore, until further orders the existing allowances in the autonomous organisations shall continue to be admissible as per the existing terms and conditions, irrespective of the revised pay scales having been adopted.”

Government employees need not file asset details under Lokpal for now

Government employees need not file asset details under Lokpal for now

New Delhi: The Centre has extended indefinitely the deadline to file details of assets and liabilities by central government employees under a mandatory provision of Lokpal Act.

A new format and fresh set of rules are being finalised by the government in this regard.

The last date for filing such details was December 31.

“There is no requirement for filing of declarations of assets and liabilities by public servants now. The government is in the process of finalising a fresh set of rules. The said rules will be notified in due course to prescribe the form, manner and timelines for filing of declaration of assets and liabilities by the public servants under the revised provision of the said (Lokpal) Act.

“All public servants will henceforth be required to file the declarations as may be prescribed by the fresh set of rules,” an order issued by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.

There are about 50.68 lakh central government employees.

As per rules, notified under the Lokpal Act, every public servant shall file declaration annually pertaining to his assets and liabilities as on March 31 every year or on or before July 31 of that year.

For 2014, the last date for filing returns was September 15. It was first extended till December, then till April 30, 2015 and third extension was up to October 15. The date was again extended to April 15, 2016 and then July 31 for filing of the returns.

The last date was further extended till December 31 after Parliament had passed a bill to amend the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013.

The declarations under the Lokpal law are in addition to similar ones filed by the employees under various services rules.

The DoPT had last year also issued an order bringing NGOs receiving more than Rs one crore in government grants and donations above Rs 10 lakh from abroad under the ambit of the Lokpal.

The order had mandated filing of returns of the assets and liabilities by such organisations and their executives – director, manager, secretary or any other officer.

7th Pay Commission Pay Revision for Autonomous bodies – Finmin Orders

7th Pay Commission Pay Revision for Autonomous bodies – Finmin Orders

AUTONOMOUS BODY’S PAY REVISION ORDERS ISSUED

Pay revision of employees of Quasi-Government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up by and funded/controlled by the Central Government – Guidelines

F.No.1/1/2016-E.III(A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

New Delhi, 13th January, 2017

Office Memorandum

Subject: Pay revision of employees of Quasi-Government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up by and funded/controlled by the Central Government – Guidelines

The employees working in the Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up and funded/controlled by the Central Government, are not Central Government employees and, therefore, the benefits implemented by Central Government in respect of Central Government employees as part of their service conditions, are not directly applicable to the employees working in such autonomous organizations. The application of such benefits as given to Central Government employees in respect of employees of such autonomous organizations as well as the manner and conditions governing such application, including sharing of the additional financial implications arising thereon, requires specific approval of the Central Government. The autonomous organizations are expected to manage their affairs in such a fashion that their dependence on Central Government for financial support to meet the extra financial implications is minimal, as such autonomous organizations are expected to be financially Self-sufficient So as not to cause any extra burden on the Central Exchequer.

2. In the above background, the question of extension of the revised pay scales in terms of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 as notified on 25.7.2016 in respect of Central Government employees based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission, to the employees of the Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies, etc., Set up and funded/controlled by the Central Government, where pattern of emolument structure, i.e. pay scales and allowances, in particular Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance, are identical to those in case of the Central Government employees, has been considered by the Government and it has been decided that the revised pay scales as per the Pay Matrix, as contained in Part-A of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 as well as the principle of pay fixation as contained in the said rules, may be extended to the employees of such organizations, subject to the following stipulations:-

(i) The conditions of service of employees of these organizations, especially those relating to hours of work, payment of OTA etc. are exactly Similar to those in Case of the Central Government employees.

(ii) The revised pay structure shall be admissible to those employees who opt for the same in accordance with the extant Rules.

(iii) Deductions on account of Provident Fund, Contributory Provident Fund or National Pension System, as may be applicable, will have to be made on the basis of the revised pay w.e.f. the date an employee opts to elect the revised pay structure.

3. The revised pay scales contained in Parts B & part C of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, shall not be automatically applicable to the employees Of Autonomous Organizations. The concerned Administrative Ministry shall consider such cases keeping in view whether these pay scales are justified for the category of staff of Autonomous Organizations based on functional considerations, recruitment qualifications, as well as the applicable pre-revised pay scales. Based on such an examination by the concerned Administrative Ministry, appropriate proposals, if justified, would be submitted to the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, through their Integrated Finance.

4. In case of those categories of employees whose pattern of emoluments structure, i.e., pay scales and allowances and conditions of service are not similar to those of the Central Government employees, a separate ‘Group of Officers’ in respect of each of the Autonomous Bodies may be constituted in the respective Ministry/Department. The Financial Adviser of the respective Ministry/Department will represent the Ministry of Finance on this Group. The Group would examine the proposals for revision of pay scales etc. taking into account the views, if any, expressed by the Staff representatives of the concerned organizations. It would be necessary to ensure that the final package of benefits proposed to be extended to the employees of these Autonomous Organizations etc. is not more beneficial than that admissible to the corresponding categories of the Central Government employees.

Child care leave to be applied for in advance: High Court

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has made it clear that child care leave has to be applied for in advance by a woman employee working with the Haryana Government.

Justice Rajiv Narain Raina of the High Court has also made it clear that it can be availed after the go-ahead by the authorities concerned. The permission for child care leave cannot be granted ex post facto (with retrospective force).

The development is significant as Haryana Government rules make it clear that child care leave is admissible to a woman government employee for a maximum period of two years or 730 days during her entire service for taking care of her surviving children.

It is permissible only for the first two children of the government employee. Their age has to be below 18 years for the mother to avail the leave.

The ruling by Justice Raina came on a petition by Shashi Bala against the state and other respondents. A government employee, she moved the High Court after the department concerned refused to grant ex post facto permission for child care leave.

Taking up her petition, Justice Raina asserted that by the very nature of things, child care leave has to be applied for in advance and due permission needs to be accorded. The right was valuable, because a woman employee would get full salary for the period of child care leave.

“It cannot be applied for to act retrospectively and therefore, there is nothing wrong in the department holding that ex post facto permission cannot be granted,” Justice Raina asserted.

Before parting with the order, Justice Raina observed that the first request in the case in hand was made on April 6, 2011, for granting backdated child care leave with effect from November 30, 2010, to March 30, 2011. Dismissing the plea, Justice Raina added that there was no merit therein.

Haryana Government rules suggest that child care leave cannot be demanded as a matter of right and no one can, under any circumstances, proceed on child care leave without prior proper sanction by the competent authority.

Child care leave is also admissible during the probation period, provided the probation period is extended by the period of child care leave availed. Besides this, the leave may not be availed for a period of less than 30 days.

CWP No.26951 of 2016

Date of decision:22.12.2016

Versus

State of Haryana and others
..Respondents.

CORAM:- HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE RAJIV NARAIN RAINA

Present: Mr.Ravinder Malik (Ravi), Advocate for the petitioner.

RAJIV NARAIN RAINA, J.(Oral)

By the very nature of things, Child Care Leave has to be applied for in advance and due permission accorded. The right is valuable because female employee gets full salary for the period of Child Care Leave. Child Care Leave cannot be applied for to act retrospectively and therefore, there is nothing wrong in the Department holding that ex post facto permission cannot be granted. In this case first request was made on 6.4.2011 for granting backdated Child Care Leave w.e.f 30.11.2010 to 30.3.2011.

No merit.

Dismissed.
