Minimum pay of Rs 18,000 recommended by 7th CPC is not adequate: Member, National Commission for Minorities

New Delhi: Contending prices of essential commodities are same for all, an NCM member today urged Centre to increase salary of its lowest paid employees by Rs 4,000 and reduce that of highest paid personnel by Rs 25,000 under 7th Pay Commission to see those earning less are not affected.

NCM member Praveen Davar said that the minimum pay of Rs 18,000 is “not adequate”, while the maximum pay of Rs 2.5 lakh is “a little too much”.

In his letter to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, National Commission for Minorities member Praveen Davar said that the minimum pay of Rs 18,000 as recommended in the 7th Pay Commission is “not adequate”, while the maximum pay of Rs 2.5 lakh is “a little too much”.

Davar though said his opinions expressed in the letter, dated July 11, was all personal and did not represent any organisation or group of individuals.
  • “Prices of essential commodities are equal for everyone.
  • But those paid lower are affected more than those drawing high salaries. It is my personal opinion that the minimum pay in the 7th Pay Commission of Rs 18,000 is not adequate. However, the maximum pay of Rs 2.5 lakh is a little too much,” he argued.
  • Stating that the ratio of the highest and lowest paid should be ideally 10:1, Davar said, “the minimum pay is increased to Rs 22,000 and the maximum pay is brought down to Rs 2.25 lakhs. Similar modifications can be made in the intermediately pay scales.”
  • The move, he said, will not only narrow the gap between highest and lowest paid, but also result in substantially reducing the financial burden on the exchequer.
  • Davar also criticised the decision to offer steep hike in salary of MLAs in Delhi assembly saying the move has set a “wrong” precedent.
  • “Why should be anyone paid far above his genuine needs?,” he asked.

7th CPC Expected DA Calculator from July 2016

DA is the most important allowance in existing Pay, if you look at the current basic DA is higher.
7th CPC Basic fixation has biggest influenced with the DA value. For this reason, after 7th Pay commission implementation, Central government staffs are looking out for how DA would be available.

  • In 6th CPC, everyone know how DA was calculated
  • In the above formula 115.76 was fixed based on the below interpretation
  • After implementation of Sixth Pay Commission report, Government ordered that the dearness allowance has to be calculated based on All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI¬IW index) with the base year 2001-100. So, DA with effect from the period 1.1.2006, has to be calculated using average Price CPI-IW index of 536 for 2005 (base 1982-100) adjusted to the base year 2001-100 by dividing the same with the Linking Factor between 1982 and 2001 Series which is 4.63. As a result, the average consumer price index (Industrial workers) for 12 months in 2005 (base 2001-100) was worked out to 115.76.To calculate Dearness Allowance with effect from Jan-06, we need the average of monthly All India Consumer Price Index (IW) with the base year

2001-100 for the preceding 12 months and apply the same in the following formula:

DA – (Average AICPI-115.76)x 100/115.76
For example, to calculate the DA for 01/01/2007, we find that the average AICPI in the year 2007 -118.95. So, D.A. as on 01/01/2007 – (118.95 – 115.76)*100 /115.76 = 2%.
In 7th CPC entire calculation can change if we use the same combination. Let’s see, how this can change?
Based on it, in 2015 (base 2001 =100) Average is 261.40 and by using the same following formula the expected (assumed) DA in 7th CPC would be (261.4-261.4)*100/261.4 = 2%
In case the base year 2011-100 is used in 7th CPC, then the linking factor will be changed to calculate the DA Value.

Step-wise filing of ITR & all the links you need

Step-wise filing of ITR & all the links you need

It is time to start work on your income tax return. Although the last date to file for individuals is July 31, it helps to start early so that one is not rushed at the last minute. Here are all the links you need to help you e-file your tax return on your own and also a step by step guide on how to do it. 

The income tax department has provided an easy to use platform for users to pay taxes, file ITRs, cross-check TDS through TRACES, download forms, claim refunds, check status of dues, refunds, challans etc. However, a technically-challenged tax-payer may find it difficult to use these services. Below are quick links for: Registering for e-filing, viewing your form 26AS, Income tax calculator, e-payment of taxes, checking your dues, e-filing the income tax return (ITR), downloading ITR forms and other relevant forms, checking refund status, rectification of return, e-verification of return etc. 

Steps in filing your Income Tax Return

  1. Collect your TDS certificates, which have to be mandatorily in TRACES format, from all deductors. In case of digitally signed TDS certificates ensure that there is a check mark on the digital signature indicating it has been verified. Non-verified certificates will have a question mark over the digital signature. Cross check the TDS figure on the certificate with that shown as deducted from your income e.g. TDS figure on salary slip with the figure on the TDS certificate. Check whether deductor has deducted and deposited the tax with the government. TDS certificates are in Form 16 for salaried employees and Form 16A for other deductors. 
  2. Download your tax credit statement (Form 26AS) from TRACES and cross-check the amount of tax deducted with that mentioned in TDS certificates. You should be getting certificates for all TDS reflecting in your Form26AS and all the TDS from your income should reflect in Form26AS. You need to log into your e-filing account on the income tax e-filing website to download your Form26AS. You can also download it via net-banking wherever the bank provides for this. 
  3. In case of any difference in the TDS amount shown in Form 26AS and TDS certificates, take up the matter with the deductor (employer, or others, as the case may be) and request for rectification. 
  4. Now compute your total income for the relevant financial year by adding income under all 5 heads and claiming all the relevant deductions, rebates and setting-off the current year and brought forward losses. Make sure that you don't miss any income in computing your total income is chargeable to tax. 
  5. Compute your tax liability by applying the applicable tax rates in force for the financial year for which you are calculating the tax - FY2015-16 for most filers. 
  6. Next compute your final tax dues payable or refund of taxes. This is done by deducting the taxes that you have already paid for the year by way of - TDS, TCS, and Advance Tax from the tax liability computed above and adding interest payable under sections 234A, 234B, 234C, if any. Finally pay the final tax dues, if any. Tax can be paid physically via cheque or online using challan ITNS 280. Income tax payments made after 15th March of the financial year for which return is to be filed are cal .. 
  7. Once you have paid your taxes, file the return. The deadline for filing individual tax returns ( except for those whose accounts are required to be audited as per section 44AB or those who are required to furnish the Transfer pricing report) is normally July 31 of the year immediately after the financial year for which the return is being filed. 
  8. To e-file the return, log in to income tax department's e-filing website with User ID, Password, Date of Birth and enter the Captcha Code. Once you login, you will see different tabs like "dashboard", "my Account" etc. 
  9. In case of new user - Register yourself with income tax site first. You need to choose your status (individual, chartered accountant, tax deductor etc.) and fill in your basic details like address, DOB, PAN to get registered. Only then you can log in to e-filing. 
  10. After signing in, choose the form applicable to you for the purpose of filing return. 
  11. In case Form ITR-1 or ITR-4S is applicable to you, then you can simply file your return electronically without any need to download and upload the ITR forms. 
  12. In case of other forms like ITR-2A, ITR-2, ITR-3 and ITR4, you need to download the relevant form from the website (either in excel utility or Java utility). 
  13. Once you have downloaded the relevant form, you need to fill in your personal details, income details and other details required in the form. After filling the form completely, the same is to be uploaded to the website and the return will be filed. 
  14. Filing of return (whether directly or after uploading the ITR-forms) is not valid without its verification. Return once filed has to be verified by the user. 
  15. Verification of return can be done by any one of two modes i.e. e- verifications of ITR and Physical verification of ITR. 
E-verification can be done by: (i)) Making use of internet Banking, (ii) or by using the OTP sent on your mobile number after you have linked your aadhar with your account on the e-filing portal of the Income tax department or by generating the EVC. (iii) Another method for verification of your ITR is through bank account-based validation system if you don't have Aadhaar number or internet banking facility. (iv) Bank account-based validation 

On the other hand ITR can be verified physically as well. An acknowledgement or ITR-V is generated by the e-filing website immediately after you file/upload your return. To verify your return physically, you need to take a print-out of this acknowledgement, check and sign it and send it to the address mentioned on this acknowledgement. 16. Once you have received the acknowledgement of your e-verification filing of your return is complete. You should receive an email confirming that your ITR-V has been received by the IT department i.e. your return stands e-verified. The email will be sent to the email you have registered in your e-filing account on the income tax department's e-filing website.

How To Disable Android Apps

pps in your Android phone can use a good share of resources and if too many apps are operating at the same time it can lead to some performance or battery issues. This is why, it can be important to only running apps that you actually use and others should be deleted or otherwise disabled (when removing them isn’t an option).

It is quite easy to uninstall Android Market apps which you don’t plan to use, but what about apps from OEMs and mobile carriers? Did you notice that there is no Uninstall/delete button on these apps? They are just in your phone and could be feeding on resources while you can’t seem to anything about it.

There is a good chance that you don’t use most or all of the apps installed by your wireless carrier or OEM. If you can’t delete them, you can at least Disable them so they won’t be able to slow down your phone.

Some of you who Rooted your android phone user must be thinking “just root your phone and get rid of all the junk”, but there are many Android users who don’t actually want to root their phone. “Disabling” apps is perfect for those users who want to run their phones in an optimum way, by disabling unused apps (commonly referred as “Bloatware”).
Disabling Android Apps

The process is actually quite simple and you won’t be losing anything [although you need to be careful while choosing the app to be disabled (more on this later)]. When you disable an app, it will still stay in your phone but will not be launched during the initial start up, so you can easily enable it again if you need to. In the end, it’s a good way to optimize your phone without potential dire consequences associated with Rooting the phone.

Note: In this tutorial, we will be using Samsung Galaxy Core 2 running Android KitKat 4.4.2. We will Disable “Google Text-to-speech Engine” which cannot be deleted (it’s just an example, although the app is quite useful). The process should be same on almost all android device, but the names of options may vary.
To disable any app on your android phone, you will first have to go to Settings and tap onApplication manager.
Once there you will see different options at the top such as Downloaded, Running and All. You need to swipe to All so you would be able to see all the apps you have on your phone. Just swipe left until you reach All.

There you can just search for apps that you don’t want to use. Let’s say you like reading things by yourself and don’t want to use Google Text-to-speech app. You can just tap on Google Text-to-speech and open all its details. There you will see the options of Force stop, Uninstall Updates and Turn off/Disable, tap on Turn off/Disable.

When you will tap on Turn off/Disable you will see a warning/notice saying “Turning off a built-in app may cause problems with other apps. Your data will also be deleted” just tapOK. In some phones, another warning/notice will pop up saying “The application will be replaced with the factory version” tap on Uninstall on this pop up notice and the app will be uninstalled.

Precaution: Now, the warnings you see before disabling the app are not there just to scare you, they are actually real. So before disabling any app make sure it is not directly or indirectly affecting any apps that you might use. This app is a service that is potentially used by other apps as well, so there may be ripple effects.
Enabling Android Apps
Like we have mentioned before, these apps are not deleted, you can enable them anytime you like if you change your mind. To enable the app again, just go into the details of that specific app again using the process above and tap on Turn on/enable and it will be ready to use again without going through any processes.

7th CPC : New salary from August 2016?


As per Report by AIRF on New 7th pay commission salary – On 13.07.2016, Shri Shiva Gopal Mishra, General Secretary, AIRF (All India Railwaymen Federation) has clarified to the effect that revised 7th Pay Commission recommended Pay will be paid from August salary.

Earlier he announced on 8th July about payment of enhanced salary from July which appears to be totally baseless.

Still no notification has been issued by the Finance Ministry even after 15 days of cabinet approval.

As per information available, only enhanced basic pay and the existing allowance (as being paid now in old rate) will be paid until the enhancement of allowances are reviewed by the Govt. appointed committee.

Gazette Notification for implementation of 7th CPC

Comrades,

There are lot of discussions about the date of Gazette Notification for implementation of 7th CPC & Office Memorandum, It usually takes about 15 to 20 days after cabinet approval of the pay commission report .Let us examine the 6th CPC dates.

The union cabinet gave its approval for implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission on 14th August 2008.

Gazette Notification for implementation of 6th CPC was issued on 29th August 2008 & Office Memorandum was issued on 30th August 2008, after 16 days after cabinet approval

The 7th CPC

The union cabinet gave its approval for implementation of the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission on 29th June 2016.

Hence the Gazette Notification for implementation of 7thCPC & Office Memorandum is likely issued in next week.

Comradely yours
(P.S.Prasad)

General Secretary
