10 Years After Supreme Court Order, Centre Agrees To Grant Equal Pension To All Major Generals

After a decade-long struggle for equal pension, all retired major generals, whether they superannuated before or after 1996, will get the same pension, as the Centre on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that it had decided to end the discriminatory monthly payouts.

Retired major generals, through senior advocate Nidhesh Gupta, had been fighting for more than a decade and had succeeded before the apex court, which in 2008 had ruled that “the pay of all pensioners in the rank of major general and its equivalent rank in the other two wings of the defence services be notionally fixed at the rate given to similar officers of the same rank after the revision of pay scales with effect from January 1, 1996”.

Finance Ministry Not In Favour Of Slashing Excise Duty On Petrol, Diesel

Petrol prices hit a 55-month high in the national capital today at Rs 74.50 per litre, while diesel rates reached Rs 65.75 but the finance ministry is not in favour of cutting excise duty, as mentioned by a senior official on Monday. Ironically, the BJP-led government that also rules 21 states, wants the states to cut sales tax or Value Added Tax (VAT) on fuel.

The finance ministry official said that reduction in excise duty is not advisable if the government wants to stick to the path of reducing budgetary deficit. “Excise duty cut would be a political call, but is not advisable if we have to stick to the fiscal deficit glide path outlined in Budget,” he said.

“Every rupee cut of excise on fuel will result in a loss of Rs 13,000 crore to the government,” the official said, adding that the oil ministry has not yet officially asked for a cut in fuel excise duty. It must be mentioned that the government wants to reduce fiscal deficit to 3.3% of the GDP in the current fiscal from 3.5% of the last fiscal.

Instead of reducing excise duty, the states should cut VAT on fuel the official mentioned. “Fiscal considerations are far higher than one or two rupee price impact on consumers. One or two rupee increase doesn’t impact inflation,” the official further added.

The central government levies Rs 19.48 a litre of excise duty on petrol and Rs 15.33 per litre on diesel. State sales tax or VAT varies from state to state. In Delhi, VAT on petrol is Rs 15.84 and Rs 9.68 a litre on diesel.

While the government is hoping that geopolitical tension would ease and US shale oil would help ease oil prices, it is not in favour of tinkering with the autonomy given to oil PSUs to revise rates daily in line with the cost. “Once we have decided on daily price revision, it is not a good thing to tinker with that either through excise or by asking oil marketing companies to absorb prices,” the official said.

India has the highest retail prices of petrol and diesel among South Asian nations as taxes account for half of the pump rates.

The government had raised excise duty nine times between November 2014 and January 2016 to shore up finances as global oil prices fell, but then cut the tax just once in October last year by Rs 2 a litre.

Subsequent to that excise duty reduction, the Centre had asked states to also lower VAT, but just four of them – Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh – reduced rates while others including BJP-ruled ones ignored the call.

In all, duty on petrol rate was hiked by Rs 11.77 per litre and that on diesel by 13.47 a litre in those 15 months that helped government’s excise mop up more than double to Rs 2,42,000 crore in 2016-17 from Rs 99,000 crore in 2014-15.

7th Pay Commission – J&K Government Approves 7th CPC For Employees

In a relief to more than five lakh state government employees and pensioners, the J&K government on Tuesday approved implementation of the seventh pay commission recommendations with effect from January 2016.

With the immediate implementation of revised pay scale, employees will get more than 20 per cent hike in the salary for the month of April, state Finance Minister Syed Altaf Ahmed Bukhari told reporters after the meeting of the state cabinet here.

Costly Diesel Poised To Push Up Public Transport Charges In Maharashtra

The recent surge in diesel price is likely to spur a 10-15% rise in fare of state bus (ST) bus, including Mumbai-Pune AC Shivneris, said sources in the state transport department.

On Monday, the price of diesel in Mumbai touched an all-time high of Rs 70 per litre. “The fuel price rise will have a major impact on our operations,” said a senior MSRTC official. “We may be compelled to draft a proposal for a fare hike in the next few days and submit it to the ST board.” After getting a clearance from the board, the proposal will be sent to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Transport Authority for final nod.

The MSRTC has a 19,000-strong fleet and ferries over 67 lakh passengers daily across Maharashtra, connecting major cities like Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and Nagpur. MSRTC buses require more than 12 lakh litres of diesel for daily run. The last fare hike was in 2014 and was in the range of 13% to 15%, which included AC buses like Shivneri.

“Since the last three years, we have been facing increasing costs of bus maintenance, tyres and spare parts. There was also a rise in consumer price index of our workers…but the key parameter for a fare hike is fuel price rise,” explained the official.

If there is any hike, it will burden scores of commuters who depend on the buses for travel.

According to sources, the MSRTC incurred Rs 2 crore losses daily, and due to the diesel price hike since July, the losses mounted by an additional Rs 97 lakh. “To curtail the losses, fares have to be increased,” a source said.

On Tuesday, transporters have threatened to go on strike if diesel price is not reduced. Bal Malkit Singh of All India Motor Transport Congress said: “Around 65% of the operational costs for a transporter constitutes diesel cost. It is…slowing killing the tra-nsport industry.” The association has demanded a cut in excise duty and other taxes on fuel to bring down the rates and provide temporary relief to transporters. The excise duty is 22-23% and total taxes paid on fuel is around 43%, Singh said.

It is not just truck, tempo and trailer owners who are hit, but also tourist buses and school buses which ply on diesel, sources said.

Annex-A

Item no. 15,16,17&21:- Parity/ Modified Parity in pension/revised pension/family pension of all pre-1996 retirees with those who retired on or after 01.01.2006.

In accordance with an Office Memorandum dated 01.09.2008, for revision of the pension of the pre-2006 pensioners, the pension/family pension of existing pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners was to be consolidated with effect from 01.01.2006 by adding together (i) The existing pension/family pension (ii) Dearness Pension, where applicable (iii) Dearness relief up to AICPI (IW) average index 536 (Base year 19823100) i.e. @ 24% of Basic Pension/Basic family pension plus dearness pension as admissible and (iv) fitment weightage @ 40% of the existing pension/family pension. Para 4.2 of the Office Memorandum dated 01.09.2008 provided that the fixation of pension will be subject to the provision that the revised pension, in no case, shall be lower than fifty per cent of the minimum of the pay in the Pay Band plus the Grade Pay corresponding to the pre-revised Pay Scale from which the pensioner had retired and in the case of HAG+ and above scales, this will be fifty per cent of the minimum of the revised Pay Scale.

2. Clarification on various provisions of the OM dated 1.9.2008 were issued vide Department of Pension and PW OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) pt. 1 dated 3.10.2008. In regard to Para 4.2 of the OM dated 1.9.2008 the following clarification was issued:-

“The pension calculated at 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band plus grade pay would be calculated at the minimum of the pay in the pay band (irrespective of the pre-revised scale of pay) plus the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale. For example, if a pensioner had retired in the pro-revised scale of pay of Rs.18400-22400, the corresponding pay band being Rs. 37400-67000 and the corresponding grade pay being Rs. 10,000/- p.m., his minimum guaranteed pension would be 50% of Rs. 37,4001 Rs. 10,000 (i.e. Rs. 23,700).

The pension will be reduced pro-rata, where the pensioner had less than the required service for full pension as per rule 49 of the CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972 as applicable on 01.01.2006 and in no case it will be less than Rs. 3500/- p.m.

In case the pension consolidated as per para 4.1 of OM.No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 1.9.2008 is higher than the pension calculated in the manner indicated above, the same (higher consolidated pension) will be treated as Basic Pension.”

3. In the Agenda item, the JCM (Staff side) claimed that the revised pension/family pension of all pic-2006 pensioners/family pensioners would not be less than 50% of the minimum of the pay band l grade pay, corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which pensioner had retired, as arrived at with reference to the fitment tables annexed to Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure’s O.M. No. l/l/2008-IC dated 30.8.2008.

4. In the last meeting of the Anomaly Committee the staff side argued that a reading of the recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission on the matter indicated that the intent of the Pay Commission was to grant modified parity to pro-01.01.2006 pensioners by allowing the same fitment benefit as is being recommended to the existing Government employees subject to the provision that revised pension shall not be lower than 50% of the minimum of the pay in the pay band prescribed for the grade pay and the sum of the grade pay with reference to the minimum of the pay band plus the grade pay which is not consistent with the recommendation of the Sixth CPC. Officer of Department of Expenditure stated that this was not the intent of me recommendation of the Pay Commission. After some discussion, the Staff Side request the Official Side to examine the matter once again.

5. After the above meeting of the Anomaly Committee, the following decisions have been taken by the Government:

(i) Orders were issued vide this Department’s OM of even number dated 28.1.2013 for stepping up of pension of pre-2006 pensioners w.e.f. 24.9.2012 to 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band and grade pay corresponding to pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner retired. Para 5 of this OM provides that in case the consolidated pension/family pension calculated as per para 4.1 of OM. No.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 192008 is higher than the pension/family pension calculated in the manner indicated in the OM. dated 28.1.2013, the same (higher consolidated pension/family pension) will continue to be treated as basic pension/family pension.

(ii) Subsequently, in compliance of an order dated 1.11.2oll of the Hon’ble CAT, Principal Bench in OA No. 655/2010, order dated 29.4.2013 of Hon’ble, High Court of Delhi in WP (C) No. 1535/2012 and order dated 17.3.2015 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in SLP (C) No. 36148/2013, order were issued vide this Department’s 4 O.M. No.38/37/O8-P&PW(A) dated 30.7.2015 that the pension/family pension of all pre ~ 2006 pensioners/family pensioners may be revised in accordance with this Department’s O.M. No.38/3 7/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.1.2013 with effect from 1.1.2006 instead of24.9.2012.

(iii) Vide OM. No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 6.4.2016, it was decided that the revised consolidated pension of pre-2006 pensioners shall not be lower than 50% of the minimum of the pay in the Pay Band and the grade pay (wherever applicable) corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale as per fitment table without pro-rata reduction of pension even if they had qualifying service of less than 33 years at the time of retirement.

Tax Benefits On Education Loan And Fees; Here’s All You Need To Know

Education has the potential to propel the qualify of life of society and individual in geometric progression velocity. Since education is becoming more and more expensive year after year, the government intends to provide some relief to the tax payers by allowing various tax reliefs in this respect. Let us discuss the benefits attached with education under income tax laws.

Tax benefits on interest paid on education loan

A person can avail tax benefit in respect of interest paid for a loan taken for the purpose of higher education of certain relatives under Section 80E. Higher education for the purpose of claiming interest means any educational course undertaken after completion of Senior Secondary Examination. The benefit can be claimed for yourself, your children or even your spouse or even any child for whom you are a legal guardian.

This deduction can be claimed for eight years in a row beginning from the year in which interest payment starts. Please note that the deduction is allowable on payment basis. So in case you pay arrears of interest on your education loan in a particular year, you will be able to claim full interest paid during the year irrespective of the year to which the interest pertains to.

There is no restrictions as to the quantum of deduction unlike for tuition fee for which the overall claim will be restricted to Rs 1.50 lakh in a year. Moreover the course for which the education loan is taken can be part time or full time unlike for claiming tuition fee. It is interesting to note that the deduction in respect of interest payment for loan can be for education anywhere in the world, unlike deduction for tuition where the educational institution has to be situated in India.

For being eligible to claim this deduction, a loan has to be taken from any financial Institution or any approved charitable Institution. The financial institutions include any bank or any other institution approved by the government. The charitable institution should also be recognized as such by the Central government. So, if you borrow from your friends or relatives for your education, you cannot claim this deduction.

Payment of tuition fee of children

The tax laws allow you a deduction up to Rs 1.50 lakh every year in respect of the tuition fee paid for full-time education of a maximum of two of your children in India. This deduction is available together with other eligible items of deduction like provident fund contribution, PPF, home loan repayment, life insurance premium, etc. The education can be had in a school, college, university or any other educational institution in India. Since this covers only expenses for full education, any payments made to coaching classes are not covered under this section. The eligible fee paid can be claimed even if the children is not dependent on you.

It is also worthwhile to note that the deduction up to Rs 1.50 lakh covers only tuition fee and does not cover any donation or as development fee by whatever name called. In case a person has more than two children undergoing full-time education and if both the parents are working, then each of the parent can claim this deduction for two children.

Exempt Allowance for salaried people

In addition to the above benefits which are available to salaried and self employed both, the tax laws also provide for certain allowances received by an employee from his employer as fully exempt. The first exempt allowance is education allowance received from your employer up to Rs 100 per month each for two of your child. The second exempt allowance is hostel allowance @ Rs 300 for each child for up to two child. It is important to note that the allowance will be treated as exempt only if you have incurred the expenses against the allowance granted by your employer. Moreover you can not claim these exemptions unless your employer provides you such allowance as part of your salary.

From the above discussion it becomes apparent that the government is keen to improve the level of education in India and grants various tax benefits related to education.

Tamil Nadu Government Spending 61 Per Cent Revenue On Employees, Says CM

“Nearly 61 per cent revenue of the Tamil Nadu government is spent towards the benefit of 13 lakh government employees,” CM said. “In the recent days, Government employees have been protesting for various demands and some political parties are triggering their protests indirectly.

For the welfare of government employees, the government has implemented the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and sanctioned Rs 14,877 crore. Of the 100 per cent revenue earned, 31 per cent has been spent on implementing various Central Government schemes. In the remaining 69 per cent revenue, 61 per cent has been spent on the government employees alone for their pension and salary,” he defended.

It was only in the remaining eight per cent revenue that welfare schemes for the 7.87 crore people in the State were being implemented, apart from paying interest on loans received from various agencies, he said.

Hence, he wanted the government employees to consider these aspects and extend full support and cooperation to the government.

As a part of his three-day visit to Salem, the CM participated in a function where he inaugurated various projects and laid foundation stone for new schemes on Friday. Totally, he distributed welfare assistance to the tune of Rs 26 crore.

Not So Sweet: GST Council May Consider Sugar Cess In Next Meeting

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council, headed by finance minister Arun Jaitley, will likely take up as early as in its next meeting, a proposal for the imposition of a cess on sugar to create a fund that will help mills clear cane dues owed to farmers, a senior government official said.

With cane arrears to farmers mounting, an informal ministerial panel explored options such as production-linked subsidy, imposition of sugar cess and reducing GST on ethanol to help sugar mills in clearing dues worth Rs 19,000 crore to sugarcane farmers.

The fund is proposed to finance the gap between the cane price mills can pay to farmers in accordance with a revenue-sharing formula recommended by the Rangarajan Committee and the benchmark rate — fair and remunerative price (FRP) — fixed by the central government.

Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari, Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan and Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan held a meeting to discuss ways to deal with huge cane arrears to growers. The meeting was also attended by senior officials of PMO and ministries of agriculture, commerce, food, petroleum and finance.

“Sugarcane arrears have touched about Rs 19,000 crore. We discussed this issue. There were several suggestions like production linked subsidy, sugar cess and reduction of GST on ethanol from 18 per cent to 5 per cent,” Paswan told reporters after the meeting. He said, the government has not decided anything now and there could be one more meeting before finalising Cabinet proposal on this issue. Paswan said.

Sources had earlier said a cess of Rs.1-1.50 per kg of sugar would be adequate to ensure farmers get their dues on time and mills are in much better shape as well. The food ministry had also written to the ministries of law and finance for advice if indeed such a cess could be levied on the GST.

How To Fill The New Details Required In ITR-1



The tax department has uploaded the new income tax return (ITR) Form1 or Sahaj for the financial year 2017-18 on its e-filing website. This is the form that is used by most of the salaried class to file their ITRs.

Unlike last year, this year’s form requires taxpayers to provide break-up of their salary income and income from house property. In the FY18 form, for instance, you will have to provide details about value of perquisites, non-exempt allowances, interest paid on borrowed capital and so on. And don’t worry, you will not have to run helter-skelter in a bid to find these details, especially those relating to salary income.

Will 2019 General Election Bring Good News To Govt Employees’ Minimum Pay, Fitment Factor Issue



Will 2019 general election bring good news to govt employees’ minimum pay, fitment factor issue – Will 7th Pay Commission will be implemented in toto with Govt employees representations

The government has not made any proposal on withdrawal of discussions in regards to hike in minimum pay scale and fitment factor.

The struggle of 48 lakh central government employees over their minimum pay and fitment factor hike beyond 7th CPC report recommendation has continued for nearly two years now. These employees feel hard done by especially as FM Arun Jaitley had promised to give due consideration to their issue at official venues. However, government employees are still hoping for an increase in the fitment factor and minimum pay, despite the fact that the government has said it is not thinking along those lines at all. The hope are pinned to a list of development taken by government, which leads directly or indirectly to 7CPC drawing attention of all concerned to the matter.
