ARREAR TO GPF-TDS CALCULATION-IMPORTANT JUDGEMENT

                         Most of the employees feel very uncomfortable to pay income tax for the Arrear (Pay arrear of DA arrear) which has been credited to GPF account. Though they are not receiving any monetary benefit for the time being, they should have to include this amount too with the total income and have remit TDS for the amount. This judgment may be a relief in  similar situations.
                         This is an important Judgment from Hon’ble High court of Kerala in respect of Income tax to be deducted from the arrear amount that to be merged with the PF account of the employees.
                         There was a direction to deposit the amount in GPF accounts after deducting the Income Tax at source, in terms of Section 192 of the Income Tax Act, so as to relieve from the burden of finding money for payment of income tax from other source.
                         Whenever the bills are prepared in respect of the arrear payment, the DDO of the institution should also see that, the income tax payable in respect of such amounts is shown separately and that, arrangements are made for remittance of the same in the Treasury, so as to meet the requirement of payment of income tax. Appropriate steps shall be pursued by the Treasury officer as well, so as to give effect to the verdict as above and the balance amount alone shall be credited in the GPF account.



KERALA PUBLIC EXPENDITURE REVIEW COMMITTEE REPORT

Third Kerala Public Expenditure Review Committee- First Report
The Third Public Expenditure Review  Committee constituted under section 6 of the Kerala Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2003(Act 29 of 2003)has submitted the first report.Click here to download the report.

IMPORTANT RECCOMENDATIONS
  • Misclassification of taxes has been observed. The Committee recommends to conduct reconciliation of accounts of tax collection to ensure the recording oftransactions under proper heads of accounts.
  • In spite of high potentiality of non-tax revenue (such as land revenue, forest revenue, user charges etc), its collection is much lower than the average of Southern States and all states. The Committee recommends an exhaustive study in this respect by an expert group at the earliest .
  • recommends appropriate steps to control distortive tendencies of tax evasion, avoidance and trade diversion.
  • The root cause for the higher revenue and fiscal deficit in the state is the mounting expenditure on four items viz., salaries to government staff, teaching grants to private aided educational institutions, pensions and interests. The Committee recommends changes in fiscal policy and priorities in public spending to address this issue especially on the four items (para4.4).
  • The large and mounting expenditure on salaries and pensions due to its revisions in every five years is a basic cause for the continuous revenue and fiscal deficit of the state. Taking into consideration of the critical fiscal situation of the State, the Committee recommends (i) the revision of salaries and pensions once in 10 years as
    followed by central government; (ii) to reduce the item of expenditure through introduction of e-governance, payment of salaries, pensions, social welfare schemes through banks, introduction of email for official communications etc; (iii) some of the subsidiary activities like watch and ward, cleaning, gardening, transport of officials, delivery of mails etc may be outsourced or given on contract basis without long term financial commitments.( para 4.8)
  • Currently, half of the total staff in the State paid from public funds are in the educational institutions. More than half of the total salary expenditure is incurred on education. This opportunity cost of spending has serious socio-economic consequences. The Committee recommends that wasteful expenditure in these items may be curbed. (para 4.6 & 4.7).
  • The system of grants-in-aid has resulted in excess educational institutions, excess staff and a lot of wasteful expenditure. The Committee recommends (1)the practice of starting new educational institutions and courses in private aided sector may be discontinued;(2)the existing private aided educational institutions may be allowed to
    start new course only in unaided stream; and (3) for social equity reasons the present system of recruitment in the private aided sector may be reviewed.(para 4.11,4.12 and 4.13)
  • The recent decision of the government to switch over from the present system of statutory defined benefit scheme (pension scheme) to contributory scheme is a sound decision. The Committee recommends that the implementation process may be expedited for achieving fiscal stability in the long run. (para 4.19)
  • Though the state is implementing a number of social welfare schemes, the pensions are not paid monthly and hence the beneficiaries are not getting the desired benefits. The Committee recommends that necessary steps may be taken by the Departments and LSGIs to distribute the pensions every month through banks / epayment. (para 4.19)
  • The universities in Kerala heavily rely on grants-in-aid from the government and face serious financial problems. In the allocation of grants-in-aid to universities no criteria or norm is followed by the government. It is allocated arbitrarily without considering financial position, development requirements, teaching and research and other vital academic issues. The Committee recommends the constitution of regulatory agency, a State University Grants Commission to evaluate the activities and to allocate grants-in-aid on a regular basis.(para 4.20 and 4.24)
  • The passing of the State budget in June and July, delays the processing of schemes by the Department for further administrative sanction and implementation. The Committee recommends that steps may be taken to pass the budget in March every year (para 5.29).
  • The delay in physical movements of files and documents across various layers of Govt leads to delayed administrative sanction and consequent implementation. The Committee recommends that e-governance may be urgently initiated in various stages of project formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation (para 5.31).

Rajiv gandhi equity savings scheme-Tax Benefits


 This Scheme would give tax benefits to new investors who invest up to Rs. 50,000 and whose annual income is below Rs. 10 lakh.

The Union Finance Minister,  P. Chidambaram approved a new tax saving scheme called “Rajiv Gandhi Equity Saving Scheme“(RGESS),exclusively for the first time retail investors in securities market. This Scheme would give tax benefits to new investors who invest up to Rs. 50,000 and whose annual income is below Rs. 10 lakh.


The Scheme not only encourages the flow of savings and improves the depth of domestic capital markets, but also aims to promote an ‘equity culture’ in India. This is also expected to widen the retail investor base in the Indian securities markets. 


1) The scheme is open to new retail investors, identified on the basis of their PAN numbers. This includes those who have opened the Demat account but have not made any transaction in equity and/or in derivatives till the date of notification of this scheme and all those account holders other than the first account holder who wish to open a fresh account.

2) The maximum investment permissible under the Scheme is Rs 50,000 and the investor would get a 50 percent deduction of the amount invested from the taxable income for that year. To benefit the small investors, the investments are allowed to be made in installment in the year in which tax claims are made.

3) Under the scheme, those stocks listed under the BSE 100 or CNX 100, or those of public sector undertakings which are Navratnas, Maharatnas and Miniratnas would be eligible. Follow-on public offers (FPOs) of the above mentioned companies would also be eligible under the scheme. IPOs of PSUs, which are getting listed in the relevant financial year and whose annual turnover is not less than Rs 4000 crore for each of the immediate past three years, would also be eligible.

4) Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Mutual Funds (MFs) that have RGESS eligible securities as their underlying and are listed and traded in the stock exchanges and settled through a depository mechanism have also been brought under RGESS.

5) The total lock-in period for investments under the scheme would be three years, including an initial blanket lock-in period of one year, commencing from the date of last purchase of securities under RGESS.

6) After the first year, investors would be allowed to trade in the securities in furtherance of the goal of promoting an equity culture and as a provision to protect them from adverse market movements or stock specific risks as well as to give them avenues to realize profits.

7) Investors would, however, be required to maintain their level of investment during these two years at the amount for which they have claimed income tax benefit or at the value of the portfolio before initiating a sale transaction, whichever is less, for at least 270 days in a year.

8) The calculation of 270 days includes those days pursuant to the day on which the market value of the residual shares/units has automatically touched the stipulated value after the date of debit.

9) For the purpose of valuation of shares, the closing price as on the previous day of the date of trading will be considered so that new investors are certain about their debits and credits into the account. In case the investor fails to meet the conditions stipulated, the tax benefit will be withdrawn.

Onam gift! State staff to retire at 58

 Deccan Chronicle : Kochi- 24-07-2012
                      The state government, even while claiming that it had not seriously considered the option, is all set to increase the pension age of Government employees to 58 on July 25, the last day of the current Assembly session. Along with the pension age hike, the Government is planning to introduce the contributory pension scheme for new recruits.
                      The plan is to get the decisions ratified by the Cabinet on August 8. It was four months ago that the pension age was upped from 55 to 56. This session, the Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy, and the Finance Minister, K. M.Mani, dropped enough hints that the Government would go ahead with both a hike in pension age and the contributory pension scheme. “Every year, Rs.7,731 crore goes to pensions and this situation cannot go on for long,” Chandy had said.
                      Between 17,000 and 20,000 Government employees and teachers are expected to retire in the course of the year.If they are given another two years, the cashstrapped state government would save around Rs 375 crore this fiscal.
                      An employee is entitled to provident fund, gratuity and terminal surrender benefits within three months of retirement. Equally controversial will be the move to introduce contributory pension, though it is restricted to new recruits. The employee’s contribution to the fund will be matched or even bettered by the State Government’s share. However, employees’ organizations are worried that employees will have to bear risks associated with investing money in the contributory pension fund. The contributory pension fund, to be set up on the lines of the National Pension Scheme, will be invested in stocks.
