E-filing must for salaried taxpayers also with annual income above Rs.5 lakh


Mumbai, May 7, 2013(TNN): The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has widened the scope of e-filing of income tax (I-T ) returns. And one of the changes introduced through a recent notification impacts salaried taxpayers. E-filing of I-T returns is now mandatory for individuals, including salaried taxpayers, earning more than Rs 5 lakh taxable income during the financial year ended March 31, 2013.

Prior to this notification, e-filing was mandatory for individuals having a taxable income of more than Rs 10 lakh. According to sources in theministry of finance, nearly 18 lakh individual taxpayers fall in the Rs 5-10 lakh tax slab, all of whom will now have to file their I-T returns online. Salaried employees have to file their I-T returns for the income earned in FY13 by July 31, 2013.
Salaried taxpayers, however , do not have to obtain a digital signature for e-filing their I-T returns. After having filed online, for verification of the return, a hard copy has to be sent to the central processing unit in Bangalore.
Salaried taxpayers having income from salary, house property and income from other sources such as bank interest can e-file the simple form – Sahaj (ITR1). However, if they report a loss under the head income from house property or winnings from lottery or from betting at a racecourse or even capital gains, then Sahaj form is not applicable and Form ITR2 or another appropriate form needs to be filled in and filed online. A free online filing facility is available at https:// incometaxindiaefiling .gov.in/
“Salaried individuals earning less than Rs 5 lakh and whose saving bank interest income is less than Rs 10,000 in a year will continue to be exempt from filing of their tax return, provided they meet the prescribed conditions. These conditions include that the employer has discharged the entire tax liability through deduction of tax at source and deposited it with the government . If an employee has switched jobs during the year, then this leeway of tax filing exemption is not available,” explained a tax official.
“E-filing of I-T returns also helps speed up the process of granting refunds to taxpayers – the processing is carried out at the central processing unit in Bangalore . The process of e-filing is now simple. If one considers only Form 1, as a sample case, as many as 64 lakh I-T returns were filed during FY 2012-13 . We are equipped to handle the additional e-returns ,” said a finance ministry official.
According to L K Jain, a Mumbai-based chartered accountant , “Small taxpayers who are not computer savvy will now have to seek professional help for filing I-T returns . The plus side is that the tax authorities have assured speedy refunds when e-returns are filed.”
Many chartered accountants said the official website of the tax department which enables e-filing of returns is difficult to access, especially during the peak return filing season.
Through the same notification , the CBDT has also introduced e-filing of tax audit reports, transfer pricing (TP) reports andMinimum Alternate Tax (MAT) certificates . Earlier, while e-filing of I-T returns was mandatory for India Inc, these reports had to be physically filed at the local tax office.
Mukesh Butani, chairperson , BMR Advisors, said, “It is important to ensure that the information technology system has stabilized and there are no hiccups as we have seen with digitization efforts in the past.”
Individuals, including salaried taxpayers, earning more than 5L now have to mandatorily e-file their I-T returns Salaried taxpayers with income less than 5 lakh and bank interest less than 10,000 continue to be exempt from filing I-T returns India Inc can now e-file tax audit report, transfer pricing (TP) report and Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) certificate.

Government employees retired before 2006 will get a revised pension:HC


New Delhi, April 6, 2013(Agencies): The Delhi High Court has held that all government employees who retired before 2006 will get a revised pension according to the Sixth Central Pay Commission.

The Delhi High Court passed the judgement which will provide a huge financial windfall to former government employees.
Rejecting the government’s plea that the pre-2006employees would get the increased pension only from 2012, the court directed the authorities to give retired employees the increased pension from 2006 itself.
The sixth pay commission, which had raised thesalaries of government employees by a significant amount, was implemented in 2006.
The landmark judgment would almost double the pension amount of the government employees, including both Central government and state government employees.
A bench of Justices Pradeep Nandrajog and V Kameswar Rao gave strict directions to the government to give the arrear to the pensioners within two months.
The court said if the government fails to do so, it will have to pay the pending amount to the retired employees at a whopping interest of 9 per cent.
The bench said: “Mandamus is issued to the respondents to re-fix the pension of the petitioners accordingly within a period of two months. In case, the arrears are not paid within a period of two months, it will also carry interest at 9% with effect from 01.03.2013.”
The court was hearing an appeal filed by the Central government challenging the Central Administrative Tribunal’s (CAT) 2009 order which had said that government employees who retired before 2006 were also entitled to the benefits of the sixth pay commission.
The CAT had passed the order on a petition filed by the Central Government Pensioners Association.
While ruling in favour of the employees, the high court bench pointed out that even the government has admitted that employees who retired prior to 2006 deserved revised pension as per the sixth pay commission.
The bench said: “The government of India has tacitly admitted that it was in the wrong and that the tribunal is correct. We conclude by noting that as regards the substance of the view taken by the Tribunal, even the Central Government accepts its correctness, but insists to make the same applicable prospectively.”
The government proposed that those employees who retired before 2006 be given revised pension from 2012 but not 2006 as pleaded by the Central Government Pensioners Association. The court, however, ruled in favour of the employees.

Restructuring and Removal of Regional Disparities in Promotions


A meeting of National office bearers of the AICEIA was held at New Delhi on 29.04.2013. All issues concerning the cadre were  discussed in detail, especially the developments after the  Patna Convention. The stand that was to be taken by the AICEIA in the meetings with the DGHRD and other Board officials scheduled to be held later  the same  day and on 30.04.2013 was also deliberated upon and decided.
All AICEIA representatives present in Delhi for the meeting of office bearers also participated in the meeting with the DGHRD.  Additional  DG (HRM) and  Additional Director  were also present. Points that emerged during the meeting are  narrated below briefly :
1.      1.  The Cadre Restructuring  file has been sent to Secretary(Expenditure) by the Revenue Secretary, from whom it should go to the DoP&T.
2.      2.  The CBEC proposal is expected to follow the course taken by the CBDT proposal, which is reported to have been approved by the Group of Ministers on 29.04.13,  and now awaits  clearance from the Union Cabinet.
3.      3.  However, even by optimistic estimates, we are still  several months away from  seeing even the  first promotions arising out of the CR exercise. The proposed figures include raising the strength of Gr  B Gazetted Executive from the present 13948 to 19108 , and for Gr  B non- Gazetted Executives- from  20,163 to 25,203.
4.      4. On our repeated and insistent demand that regional disparities in prom otions among Inspectors of Central Excise of different Cadre Control Zones have to be addressed immediately, the CBEC has agreed in principle to take decisive action to do away with regional disparities.
5.      5.  On the methods to be adopted to achieve that end, our Association’s stand is that an exercise of upgradation on the lines of the one undertaken in  1996 be repeated, to promote all Inspectors who have completed 8 years of service,  or at least promote all Inspectors to the level of the junior -most Inspector promoted as Superintendent in any Zone, as on date. The organisational desideratum, however, remains base cadre parity.
6.       6. The DGHRD  had a discussion with the Member(P&V) on the issue on 30.4.13.  After this the  AICEIA office bearers met the DGHRD again.  It is informed that  the  subject file will be put up to the Member  by next week. `
7.       7.The Board now appreciates the fact that an All India Seniority List of Inspectors of Central Excise   is a fait accompli for the period following the Supreme Court judgment dated 09.12.1996 in  the case of Radhey Shyam Singh & Others vs. Union of India & Others.  
8.       8. Action has now been initiated by DGHRD to draw such an All India Seniority List of Inspectors. This is already badly delayed since way back in 1996 itself the Board had taken a  decision to introduce All India Seniority for Inspectors, but  never showed enough resolve to implement it.
9.     9.  The AICEIA shall be keenly pursuing these matters and we should resolve not to rest till we achieve these objectives.

AICEIA CEC – July 27th  and 28th, 2013  

Chandigarh Circle of the AICEIA has informed that arrangements  are underway to host the upcoming meeting of the AICEIA Central Executive Committee at  Shimla on 27th and 28th July’13 .
