Another new note, this time for Rs 200, from RBI on its way?

Are you tired of receiving higher denominations of Rs 2,000 and Rs 500 notes? Or are you still grappling under the effects of demonetisation where Rs 100 notes are a rare sight at Automated teller machines (ATMs)? Worry no more —The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has cleared a proposal to inject Rs 200 notes around June, 2017.

The development comes after anonymous sources revealed that the decision was taken at the RBI board meeting in March, Live Mint reported. 
The move comes against the backdrop of government’s aim to rework the Indian monetary system. An RBI spokesperson declined to comment.

Even though the RBI lifted all cash withdrawal caps from ATM and banks on March 13, 2017, operators say there is a dearth of lower denomination banknotes. 

The RBI board has 14 members, including Urjit Patel, four deputy governors, Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das.
Narendra Modi government's surprise move on November 8 to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes has posed some temporary trouble for consumers in a cash-dominant economy like India, putting 86 per cent of the currency out of circulation. 

RBI Governor Urjit Patel later announced that Rs 4 lakh crore (19.1 billion notes) had been injected into the system. As on 24 March, currency in circulation was Rs 13.12 trillion, the reported added. 

Even by a conservative estimate, there was a minimum of Rs 2.5 lakh crore excess cash before November 8, 2016 in financial transactions, it said. 

The process of demonetisation has opened up huge potential for digital channels. PoS machines, m-wallets and mobile banking are the major available channels for digital transactions. 

There has been an increase of 584 per cent in digital transactions done through the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) since demonetisation in November last year.

The government is also keen to increase transactions through digital payment methods to 25 billion this year to reduce black money and fight shadow economy.

Business Standard.

New Income Tax Rules on Home Loan Come into Effect – Details Here

The government has changed income tax rules that could increase the tax outgo of those who have taken a home loan for a property that has been rented out. The amount that could be set off on home loans for rented property has been reduced.

Earlier, in case of rented property, the loss from house property – which is basically the interest paid on home loan minus rental income – was allowed to be adjusted from income without any limit.
This helped significantly reduce tax liability. Now the limit that can set off against the loss from rented house property has been restricted to Rs. 2 lakh per annum. This came into effect from April 1, 2017 (assessment year 2018-19).

However, on rented properties, the interest paid above Rs. 2 lakh can be carried forward for eight assessment years. Since the interest component of home loan repaid in initial years is higher, experts say that the borrower may not be able to fully adjust the interest paid as deduction even in subsequent years.

For example, your interest outgo on a second property is Rs. 5 lakh in a particular year. Assume that you are earning a rent of Rs. 1.5 lakh annually from the property. Such buyers, as per the current rules, are allowed to adjust the difference of Rs. 3.5 lakh (Rs. 5 lakh interest minus Rs. 1.5 lakh). But from the next financial year, they will be allowed deduction of just Rs. 2 lakh. The remaining amount of Rs. 1.5 lakh (Rs. 3.5 lakh minus Rs. 2 lakh) can be carried forward up to eight financial years and be adjusted later.

Tax experts say that some high net worth individuals – who used to buy properties on loan and were able to set off the full interest liability against the lettable value of property and thus bring down their tax liability substantially – would be particularly hit from this new tax rule.

Note: Income tax rules say that those who own more than one property can only treat one of them as self-occupied and the rest have to be assumed to be rented. Income tax has to be paid on notional rent.

From April another tax rule related to the properties will also change. The new tax rule will help bring down tax liability from property sale. The holding period of a property for qualifying under long-term gains will get reduced to two years, from three years currently.

As per current tax norms, if a property is sold within three years of buying, the profit from the transaction is treated as short-term capital gain and is taxed according to the slab rate applicable to him/her. So reducing this time period to two years will bring down tax liability.

Thus, after two years, the transaction will be able to qualify for long-term capital gains, thus lower taxes. Under long-term capital gains on immovable properties, the profit is taxed at 20 per after indexation. Under indexation, inflation during the holding period is taken into account and thus the purchase price is adjusted, reducing the tax burden on the property seller.

There are also other benefits for the seller under the long-term capital gains tax. If the gains are invested in some select government investment schemes, the tax liability goes down significantly.

Making the Teller Cash as Zero in DOP Finacle

Respected Sir(s) / Madam(s),
A kind reference is invited to CEPT email dated 22ndMarch 2017. A cut-off date of 15th April 2017 is fixed to make all teller cash “Zero”.
Critical parameter check is proposed to be introduced from 16th April 2017:
  • A validation is set as a parameter to check before HISCOD is completed
  • Those offices, where the users are having balance in teller account will not be able to close their offices
  • Respective CPCs will not be able to run HSCOD if this validation fails
  • Hence, it is once again requested that severe and critical instructions may kindly be issued to all concerned and SPOCS to ensure that teller account of all users (including those who are not part of CBS wherever they are working) are made ZERO before 15th April 2017
  • All necessary support would be extended to address the problems in POs

With effect from 16th April 2017, the validation to check as to whether the teller account of those users attached to the SOLs are ZERO before completing HISCOD will be introduced.

As part of vigilance initiative and prevention of frauds, this has the approval of FS division.

Yours Sincerely,
(V M Sakthivelu)
Deputy Director CEPT

Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) as aimed at “inciting more attacks on RTI activists"

New Delhi: Right to Information (RTI) activists and researchers have taken exception to some of the proposed changes to the Right to Information Rules 2017.

One activist described the changes suggested by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) as aimed at “inciting more attacks on RTI activists” and “far from the NDA’s digital revolution idea”.

The reactions are coming in thick and fast after the DoPT put up the proposed changes on its website, inviting comments from publicVenkatesh Nayak, programme coordinator, Access to Information Programme, Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, told News18 that the proposed clause in the rules which specifies withdrawal and abatement of appeals in case of death of an applicant is nothing short of a ‘death sentence’.
“In 2011, the DoPT had proposed a similar provision that was vehemently opposed by the civil society. Both measures were eventually dropped after civil rights activists highlighted media reports of murder attempts on RTI applicants who sought information in public interest. In 2017, there have been more than 375 recorded instances of attacks on citizens who sought information to expose corruption and wrongdoing in various public authorities. Of these, 56 are murders, at least 157 cases of physical assault and more than 160 cases of harassment and threats some of which have resulted in death by suicide,” said Nayak.Dr. Anand Rai, RTI activist and the Vyapam scam whistleblower, opposed the clause, saying it would cause uncertainty among RTI applicants.

“This could prove very dangerous because people who do not want specific disclosures to be made can just get the applicant killed or murdered. Even the proposal to charge Re1 as postal fee is unreasonable,” said Rai.

Nayak also pointed out that the rules were a far cry from the NDA government’s push for digital revolution.Draft Rule 4 continues to prescribe fees for providing information in the form of 'diskettes and floppies'. According to Nayak, “Both forms of electronic storage have become outdated.”

“The DoPT is directly under the Prime Minister who is pushing India towards the digital age in the TINA mode (There Is No Alternative mode) without ascertaining whether people want it, and if there is adequate infrastructure and awareness for such an initiative. It must discard floppies and diskettes and adopt more modern methods of information storage,” said Nayak.

The other controversial clause in the proposed rules is the one which now allows the Central Information Commission (CIC) to convert a complaint into a second appeal, meaning it can order the disclosure of information to an applicant who has come under complaint clause of the RTI Act which was not the case earlier.

However, both Nayak and Rai seem to differ on the applicability of this provision. Although Rai feels that this proposition would now mend pendency and also expedite the process of filing a second appeal, Nayak said that appeals and complaints mechanism is being turned into complicated legal procedures.

  • “Instead, the Rule should specify that a copy of the complaint/appeal should be transmitted to the public authority concerned simultaneously or after submission to the CIC with proof to be shown at the time of hearing,” said Nayak.
  • RTI activists have also taken note of the positive developments in the draft rules.
  • Nayak told News18 that although “60-65% of the rules should be re-drafted”, there were indeed some merit in the new rules.
  • “For instance, there is a provision for dealing with non-compliance of the orders and directives of the Central Information Commission. Besides, non-compliance cases can be posted before a larger bench of CIG too. The rule, which makes it mandatory for the public authority to serve an advance copy of its counter to an appeal or complaint on the appellant/complainant, is also a positive development,” said Nayak

Finmin: Employees to get higher allowances with retrospective effect 7th Pay Commission

New Delhi: A finance ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, today said that the Central government employees will get the higher allowances under the 7th pay commission recommendations with retrospective effect from January 1, 2016.

Responding to our reporter, the finance ministry official said the central government has to accept to implement the 'Committee on Allowances' recommendations without any hartals by the employees’ unions.
In the past, employees unions had to come on roads and go on strike to push for implementation of pay commission, but this time the government has to order the implementation of higher allowances soon as it is their right, he said.
Employees will get the benefits of the higher allowances with retrospective effect from January 2016, the official said, adding that the government is also working on formulating plan for paying arrears on this account.

The finance ministry will formulate roadmap for payment of arrears, he added.

The government in July last year had formed the 'Committee on Allowances', headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa, for examination of the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission on allowances other than dearness allowance as the pay commission had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances.

The committee was initially given four months time to submit the report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
  • Later, the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley extended the deadline for report submission to February 22, 2017.
  • The ‘Committee on Allowances is yet to submit its report. The committee is now in the process of finalising its report and the government would take a decision after the report is submitted. It may be taken more time to finalise its report.
  • Accordingly, the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), which is a centralised union of several central government employees unions, has told cabinet secretary that the higher allowances must be given as arrears from January 2016.
The central government employees and pensioners got theirs arrears of basic pay and pension arising from implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in one go in August salaries and pension respectively.

The hike in basic pay and pension has been made effective from January 1, 2016 but the they are still awaiting for the higher allowances.

I have met the Cabinet Secretary on March 28 and have submitted our demands. In which the NJCA have clearly mentioned that whenever there is an implementation of 7th Pay Commission the government has to pay higher allowances effective from January 2016. If the government fails to do so then we will object it in an organised manner, Shiv Gopal Mishra, Convenor, NJCA, said.

7th Pay Commission – After Pension, Focus Now On Allowance Report, Says Union Official

The pension committee related to 7th pay commission recommendations has submitted its report, Shiv Gopal Mishra, the convenor of National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), said.
The National Joint Council of Action or NJCA is a joint body of unions representing central government employees. Mr Mishra hoped that the allowance committee will also finalise its report soon. The employee representatives handed over a letter to Cabinet Secretary last week, seeking early resolution of pending demands.

Last month, the government had clarified that the allowance committee on 7th pay commission has not yet submitted its report. Minister of State for Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal said the government will decide on the implementation on 7th pay commission allowances after the report is submitted by the committee.

With regard to allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA (house rent allowance) at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent. The 7th Pay Commission had recommended that HRA be paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new basic pay, depending on type of cities.

The government had in June accepted the recommendation of Justice AK Mathur-headed 7th Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension. But the Seventh Pay Commission’s suggestions relating to allowances were referred to the Ashok Lavasa committee. The Seventh Pay Commission had examined a total of 196 existing allowances and, by way of rationalisation, recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming of 37 allowances

The 7th Pay Commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent, respectively when DA crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent when DA crosses 100 per cent.

The government had also constituted a separate committee for suggesting measures for streamlining the implementation of National Pension System (NPS).

Odisha Circle Union submits its suggestions / comments to CHQ / NFPE on review of Transfer Policy for onward submission to the Directorate

No. P3NFPE – Odisha / 04 – 04 / 2017
Dated at Bhubaneswar the 3rd April, 2017
To
1. Com. R N Parashar
General Secretary, AIPEU, Group-C, CHQ
Dada Ghosh Bhawan, New Delhi-110 008

2. Com. R N Parashar
Secretary General, NFPE, CHQ
North Avenue P O Building, New Delhi – 110 001
Sub:- Review of Transfer Policy Circulated vide Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31.01.2014 – Invitation of suggestion / comments
Ref.- Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 28.03.2017

Respected Comrade,
This has a reference to the Directorate’s letter referred to above inviting suggestion / comments for review of Transfer Policy already circulated vide Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 which was just a compilation of earlier orders/instructions omitting the orders which are redundant. 

While this Circle Union appreciates the proposed modification for transfer under Rule-38 suggested vide Directorate letter under reference, we have the following additional suggestions.

1. Clear definition of “Station Tenure” specifying the cadre to which applicable:

a. As per instructions contained in DG P & T letter No.69/49/72-SPB, dated 29.08.1973 and No. 69/49/71-SPB I, dated 2 12.1971, the station tenure for non-gazetted staff has already been abolished and instruction has been issued to transfer such officials to some other post in the same station on completion of tenure and the tenure for non-gazetted Postmasters including HSG is 4 years (DG P & T Letter No. 69/15/79-SPB-I, dated 14.02.1980).

b. But while Para 4.2.IX of the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 specifies Station Tenure for Gazetted officers to be four years with provision of extension to six years in individual cases, Para 4.2.XIII of the said letter specifies not to enforce the provision of Station Tenure on the cadre of Postal Assistant / Sorting Assistant.

Since the order is not quite specific on applicability of Station Tenure to non-gazetted staff including LSG, HSG-II, HSG-I Postmasters, such officials are being transferred with incorrect interpretation of the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014.

Therefore, the proposed revised order on Transfer Policy should clearly define the “Station Tenure” categorizing the cadres to which the same to be applied.

It may be noted that non-gazetted LSG, HSG-II, HSG-I Postmasters in Odisha Circle have been transferred recently on the plea of completion of station tenure in clear contravention to instructions contained in DG P & T letter No.69/49/72-SPB, dated 29.08.1973 and No. 69/49/71-SPB I, dated 2 12.1971 which has already been intimated to CHQ/NFPE. If such rule is still in force without any supersession, there should be a mention in the proposed revision of Transfer Policy.

2. Placing officials in the choice stations :

As specified in Para 4.2 of the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014, the broad principles of rotational transfers are;

a. Matching of human resource with requirements of posts and placing officials in the choice stations may be considered in the overall context of administrative requirement and austerity measures.

b. Inter-station transfers should be restricted to minimum in view of the austerity measure.

Further Para 4.2.I states that all officials due for rotational transfers on completion of post tenure / station tenure may be asked to give at least three options to be considered subject to administrative convenience and availability of posts.

But the reality is far from truth. The posts of LSG/HSG-II/HSG-I postmasters/supervisors are being managed by TSPAs for years together with complete mismatch of human resource. Even the LRPAs are manning the posts of the SPM of Single / Double Handed post offices at the sweet will of the administration. Options exercised by the officials are hardly acceded to. The austerity measure has never been implemented firmly though the ruling position was same prior to Transfer Policy issued vide Directorate letter dated 31-01-2014.

Secondly consequent upon implementation of Cadre Restructuring proposal of Group-C postal employees, now the P As working as S As / B E s / Trainers / CBS and PLI CPC Supervisors who are promoted to LSG and likely to be transferred from such posts not yet identified as LSG, there will be huge mismatch of human resource. There is also huge inter-station transfers due to such implementation.

Thus, the proposed revision of Transfer Policy,

i. Should contain specific guidelines to minimize the inter-station transfer and matching of human resource with requirements of posts for smooth implementation of Cadre Restructuring proposal for Group-C Postal employees.

ii. Should emphasize to accommodate the officials in their choice places even calling for additional options. The condition that their requests will be considered subject to administrative convenience which is always going against the interest of the officials needs to be deleted.

3. Clear guidelines for transfer and posting of Women / Physically handicapped employees, employees selected under sportsman quota and Union / Association Office bearers.
a. Although Para 5 of the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 clearly specifies to transfer women employees only after ensuring that basic and essential amenities are available, nothing such happens in reality and women employees are seen to be transferred in clear violation of Postal Directorate letter No. 137-10/2011-SPB.II, dated 18.01.2011 instructing all Circle Heads to identify post offices where basic amenities are not available and take action for providing them immediately. 

b. Similarly, in spite of clear and repeated instructions to post the physically handicapped officials near their native places, such officials are seen to be posted inhumanely in far off places and there is nothing mentioned in the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 regarding transfer of such officials.

c. The Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 is also silent about transfer of employees appointed under sportsman quota and eligible for availing suitable off for regular practice.  
d. Though concession of immunity from transfer from the headquarters of recognized service unions/associations is applicable to their office bearers, the same has not been incorporated in Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 for which these office bearers are unnecessarily put into troubles.

e. Since the instructions contained in the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 is often treated as the final order for transfer by most of the Divisional / Unit heads, all other rulings/guidelines specified for transfer and posting of women / physically handicapped employees, employees selected under sportsman quota and Union / Association Office bearers are often seen to be sidelined by the administration.

Therefore, for better staff welfare, the proposed revision of Transfer Policy should contain specific clauses for the above category of employees in supersession of all other rulings and guidelines with mandatory implementation without any deviation.

4. Frequent transfer on the plea of administrative necessity / public interest:

Though Para 4.5 of the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 states that transfer may not be effected in the middle of the academic session, it is often witnessed that transfer and posting orders are being issued by the authorities frequently throughout the year on the plea of administrative necessity / public interest.

The above condition acts as a nice tool to threaten the employees when he/she does not succumbed to the ill will of the authority.

This flexibility of transferring officials at anytime on the plea of administrative necessity / public interest needs to be deleted in the proposed revision of the Transfer Policy for better staff welfare and fair play of justice.

5. Rotational transfer from Sensitive to non-sensitive posts:

Although in compliance to CVC Circular dated 17.04.2008 issued vide No.004/VGL/90 dated 01.05.2008, the Department of Posts has already identified the Sensitive and Non-sensitive posts vide Letter No.4-7/2009-Vig dated 13.09.2010, nothing has been mentioned in the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014.

Since the Directorate Letter No.141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31-01-2014 is the latest compilation of transfer guidelines without any mention therein on rotation of Govt. servants from sensitive to non-sensitive posts, this has given an ample scope to avoid all other guidelines issued in this regard so far. Viz. DoPT OM No. C-11020/1/2015-Vig, dated 14.09.2015, Dte.’s letter No. 141-141/2013-SPB-II, dated 29.10.2016 etc.

Therefore, the proposed revision of Transfer Policy should be a compilation of all the latest rulings/guidelines on transfer and posting in force omitting all the orders which are redundant in nature. The compilation needs to be transparent and unambiguous as far as possible without creating any confusion in any manner. 

With regards.
Comradely yours,
