Now penalty for urinating in open, spitting in govt offices

All government departments have been asked to ensure collection of waste, rubbish and debris inside and outside the building
Urinating in open and spitting on the government office premises will now attract a penalty as the Centre has issued a new Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for 'Swachh Bharat Mission' to ensure a clean, hygienic and healthy work environment.
Also, littering and non-collection of construction and demolition waste by the contractor will also attract the penalty.
These SOPs have been shared with all central government ministries recently asking them to follow the new procedures to ensure complete sanitation in office premises, senior government officials said.
It mandates every department to form a sanitation committee under the chairmanship of relevant Joint Secretary looking after the charge of administration to monitor compliance to the SOP.
The SOP casts an obligation on authority concerned to "impose penalty on defaulters for littering, spitting and open urinating" besides conducting surprise inspections of the office premises to ensure a clean, hygienic and healthy work environment.
"If contractors have the obligation to collect the construction and demolition waste, it should be done immediately after all work is finished. Failure to do so will attract penalty," says the SOPs, sent to secretaries of all central government ministries.
The central government departments have been asked to carry out self-assessment and ratings for the buildings on overall sanitation infrastructure by measuring their effort in removing paan and gutkha stains, providing dustbins and required number of urinals to meet the cleanliness needs.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had in October 2014 launched the Swachh Bharat Mission with an aim to make the country absolutely clean by October 2, 2019.
All government departments have been asked to ensure collection of waste, rubbish and debris inside and outside the building and garden or open spaces and dispose as per set frequency, the SOP said.
An intensive cleaning of the entire office premises should be carried out at least once in two months which should also involve participation of all officials and staff (through Shramdaan) for disposal of redundant or unused hardware, furniture which can be added to inventory and re-allocated as per demand, it said.
"Weeding and recording of files should be resorted to at least once in six months. The records in the record room should be reviewed once a year and destroyed as per guidelines. This would ensure that constant space is created for keeping more recorded files. If necessary extra manpower for this purpose should be resorted to," the SOP said.
The purpose of this SOP is to improve current cleanliness levels in the government of India offices. The primary way to achieve cleanliness is through inculcating good sanitation and hygiene practices in employees and visitors, it said.

Advantages and Need for filing NIL Income Tax Return

What Is Nil Income Tax Return?How to file Nil Income Tax Return?

Here Is Why You Should File It

Did you know that you can file a tax return even if your income for the year is below the taxable limit? If your taxable income is less than the threshold limit of Rs 2.5 lakhs in a year, you are not mandated to file income tax return. But if you want to, you can file a nil return.
But you may wonder why get into the hassle of filing a tax return when you don’t have to pay any taxes. There are certain benefits of filing tax returns that you may not be aware of
1) To carry forward losses
The only condition to carry forward losses is that you have to file tax return on time. If you file your income-tax return after due date which is generally July 31 of the year, you will not be allowed to set off your capital losses against capital gains in a belated return
For example, you have incurred a loss suppose on sale of equity shares. To carry forward these losses for future adjustment with capital gains you must file tax returns.
2) To claim TDS refund
If your bank has deducted tax deducted at source (TDS) on your interest income over Rs 10,000, despite the fact that your income is below the taxable limit, you can claim a refund only if you have filed a tax return. Also, in case your rental income is more than Rs 1.8 lakhs in a year, your tenant is liable to deduct TDS. You will have to file a tax return for refund of TDS.
3) To show proof of your income
If you are applying for any kind of loan, most lenders ask for your income tax return of the past few years as a proof of income. Even if you are applying for a visa, foreign countries often ask for your income-tax return to know your financial position before issuing visa

ஜூன் 30 தில் தாக்கலாகிறது 7th CPC Empower Committee's Report

7th Pay Commission Latest News – Empowered Committee Meeting likely on 11th June 

Empowered Committee Meeting likely on 11th June – Staff Side JCM, Nodal Officers from all Ministries to participate – Committee’s report may be handed over govt by June 30.

New Delhi: The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (CoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha processing the report of the Seventh Central Pay Commission is expected to meet on June 11 to finally wrap up its report on the remuneration of government employees.
It is reported that the secretaries panel will finally hear out all the stakeholders, including the Central ministries and Departments, and finalise its report, which will be handed over to the government on June 30.
Sources added that even the Prime Minister's Office is keen on a favourable pay hike for the central government employees, so the panel is likely to recommend a minimum salary at Rs 24,000 and the highest salary at Rs 2,70,000.
The 7th pay panel headed by AK Mathur had recommended the minimum salary at Rs 18,000 and maximum salary at Rs 2,50,000.
Sources added that the government is exploring options for meeting the additional payout over and above what was recommended by the 7th pay panel. The payout could be substantial with salary hike and arrears adding up to a Rs 1.02 lakh crore burden on government finances.
However, it seems that the government employees will have to wait more for the salary hike. Once the report moves from the table of the empowered group of committee to the cabinet, it is likely to take another month before the notification on pay hike will eventually come.
Even the Finance Ministry is keen that higher salaries reach government employees just before the festive season starting mid-August, as spurt in consumption during the festive period will have a domino effect on the economy.

Rs. 800 cr. for Postal Payments Bank

Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad has stated that the Centre would invest Rs.800 crore in the proposed India Post payments bank, which is expected to become operational by March next. Half of it would be from the Department of Posts/Centre and the remaining would be equity.

RBI clearance

An additional Rs.400 crore would be mobilised as equity for the payments bank, to which the Reserve Bank of India had already given clearance, the Minister said here on Sunday while speaking on the sidelines of the three-day annual conference of heads of circles of the Department of Posts.

The payments bank would also offer third-party services of about 50 Indian and overseas financial institutions including insurance products, mutual funds, banking instruments and debt-equity and the board of the bank would decide the modalities of extending such services. “World Bank, Citi Bank, Deutsch Bank, Barclays and several others have already expressed their intent to partner with the India Post payments bank”, the Minister said.

Financial inclusion

Stating that payments bank would become a big platform for financial inclusion in the country, the Union Minister said performance of the Department of Posts had improved considerably during the last two years. He pointed out that from 2 per cent negative growth in revenue from parcel service as part of e-commerce in 2013-14, it went up by 45 per in 2014-15 and by 81 per cent in 2015-16.

The CAG had termed India Post speed post service best courier service in the country and its revenue was up by 8 per cent during 2015-16 compared to the previous year. With 1,54,939 post offices across the country, including 1,29,379 in rural areas, the Department of Posts had played a key role in financial inclusion by having 85.28 lakh accounts with a deposit of over Rs.4,500 crore in Sukanya Samriddhi accounts against just 4 lakh accounts achieved by all other banks put together, Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

As part of digitisation and technological up-gradation, the department would soon introduce hand-held devices to 1.3 lakh rural postal staff for speedy and efficient banking, insurance and delivery services.

The Minister said 4,000 devices were already being used on pilot basis in six States including Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar.

President conveys his appreciation and admiration for India’s unparalleled postal network.

Shri Pranab Mukherjee, the President of India held a meeting with Shri Ravishankar Prasad, Minister for Communications and IT at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on 20th May 2016, in which the central topic of discussion was the ongoing transformation of the postal network. The President enquired about the modernisation project, and was happy to learn about how the induction of IT was making service delivery at post offices contemporary. He also used the occasion to convey his fondness and admiration for the postal network to the postal staff, through the Minister.


Details of this interaction with the President were revealed by Shri Prasad himself, during his keynote address on 22nd May 2016, at the Conference of the Heads of Postal Circles at Hyderabad.

There have been a few other occasions in the past also when the Department has had the opportunity to benefit from President Mukherjee words of guidance and came in for praise from him. While inaugurating an international postal event at New Delhi’s Vigyan Bhavan in 2013, he had commended the unparalleled network of the Post Office and advised that there is a huge scope for postal services to be engaged in e-commerce, and that it should capitallise on the rising demand for such business products. On that occasion, he had also highlighted the need to move with the times, and said that globalization and easier movement of workforce across nations have opened a great window of opportunity for the postal sector in parcel and money remittance businesses. Further, he had emphasised that worldwide, postal administrations enjoy the trust of people and advised that the Post Office must leverage this and other strengths to provide improved quality of service to the people.

It is no surprise then that hearing from the Minister about developments like the networking of post offices, postal savings coming on a CBS platform and the Post Office preparing to set up a Payments Bank would have been a matter of satisfaction for him. His sending a message a message to the postal staff through the Minister is a rare gesture, which is sure to inspire them to higher standards of service delivery.

The words of appreciation from the President represent the increasing significance of the Postal network in the national mainstream and in public perception. With it also comes a higher responsibility for the management and staff of India Post, the responsibility of living up to the expectations of the country’s First Citizen.

Minimum Pension – Ministry Of Labour & Employment

Minimum Pension – Ministry of Labour & Employment

Minimum Pension

The Government has notified a minimum pension of Rs. 1000/- per month to the pensioners under Employees’ Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995 vide Notification No. G.S.R. 593 (E), dated 19th August, 2014 effective from 01.09.2014 for the year 2014-15 which is continued beyond March, 2015 without any break.

However, no proposal is under consideration of the Government at present for providing inflation-linked Dearness Allowance (DA) to pensioners of EPS, 1995. The issue of index-linking of pension by fully neutralizing inflation was considered by the Expert Committee constituted by the Government in the year 2009 for review of EPS, 1995 and the same was found not feasible in the case of a funded scheme like EPS, 1995 wherein the contribution of the employer and Government is at a fixed rate of 8.33 per cent and 1.16 per cent respectively. Therefore, the value of benefits cannot be left open-ended by linking it with inflation which is variable.

 This information given by Shri Bandaru Dattatreya, the Minister of State (IC) for Labour and Employment, in reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.

Central Govt Employees In Wait For 7th Pay Commission Award

New Delhi: The central government is likely to announce 7th Pay Commission award for its 48 lahk employees and 52 lakh pensioners, in a bid to ease the inflationary pressure, official sources said.
The 7th pay commission recommendations are not helpful for maintaining central government employees employees’ living standard, Finance Ministry sources told The Sen Times on Tuesday.
They had also said the salaries of government employees should increase which would give them some financial comfort, a step they had hoped might be taken within in June, when government will announce 7th Pay Commission award with major changes.
Sources in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said Prime Minister Narendra Modi may make a formal announcement on 7th Pay Commission award in June.
The government has a plan to constitute a permanent pay commission, but Finance Ministry officials are in doubt whether it will be succeeded.
They also said the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is likely to approve the proposal of review committee, which will propose minimum pay Rs 21,000 and maximum a round Rs 2,50,000 to Rs 2,70,000 to help central government employees cope with the inflation.
This will cost the exchequer Rs 1.02 lakh crore. However, in the Budget 2016 proposal, the government provided Rs 70,000 crore for the implementation of Seventh Pay Commission.
“The Finance Minister Arun Jaitley promised that the government will implement the 7th Pay Commission award in this financial year,” sources said.
The government has made allocation in the current fiscal’s budget to meet the 7th Pay Commission award which will require the government to spend Rs 1.02 lakh crore in addition to existing regular salary.
The 7th Pay Commission headed by Justice A K Mathur recommended on November 19, the highest basic salary at Rs 250,000 and the lowest at Rs 18,000 and its increased the pay gap between the minimum and maximum from existing 1:12 to 1:13.8, while all pay commissions made up pay gap between employees and officers from second Pay Commission 1:41 ratio to Sixth pay commission 1:12.
