Dated this the 27th day of March, 2012
JUDGMENT
Thottathil B.Radhakrishnan, J.
The short issue is whether the respondents ,who are Railway employees, are entitled to arrear of pay on revision of scales with effect from 1.1.1996. They were refused such benefit till 18.2.2003 as per Annexure-A3.
That has been interfered with by the Tribunal. We find no rationale to refuse relief to the Railway employees particularly when such relief has been granted to the employees of the other sector covered by the Pay Commission Order.
We find no jurisdictional error or legal infirmity to say that there is any injustice against the establishment on the basis of the impugned order. No ground made out for interference under Article 226/227 of the Constitution of India.
The writ petition fails and accordingly it is dismissed. No costs.

CBDT: Tax deductors who default in depositing TDS by due date shall be liable for prosecution

CBDT:  Tax Deductors Who Default In Depositing TDS by Due Date Shall be Liable for Prosecution

It has come to the notice of Income Tax Department that many times the tax deductors, after deducting TDS from specified payments, are deliberately not depositing the taxes so deducted in Government account and continue to deploy the funds so retained for business purposes or for personal use. Such retention of Government dues beyond the due date is an offence liable for prosecution under Section 276B of the Income Tax Act, 1961. The defaulter, if convicted, can be sentenced to Rigorous Imprisonment (RI) for a term which can extend upto seven years.

The TDS units of Income Tax Department have been taking up prosecution proceedings in suitable cases where TDS has been retained beyond the due date. The Central Board of Direct Taxes has partly modified existing guidelines for identification of cases for launching prosecution. As per the revised guidelines, the criterion of minimum retention period of 12 months has been dispensed with. For the benefit of public at large, it is now clarified that defaulters, who have retained the TDS deducted and failed to deposit the same in Government account within due date, shall be liable for prosecution, irrespective of the period of retention.


However, the offence u/s 276B of the Income Tax Act can be compounded by Chief Commissioner having jurisdiction on the case, either before or after the launching of prosecution proceedings. In the recent past, several defaulters have submitted petitions for compounding of such offences and compounding orders have also been passed by the Competent Authority in suitable cases.

7CPC Seventh Pay Commission and Merger of DA: Demand by Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel

7CPC Seventh Pay Commission and Merger of DA: Demand by Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel

 "Thus, at present, DA is more than 80 per cent of the basic pay but it is not made part of the basic pay."

    "The Delhi BJP chief said the government should set up the Seventh Pay Commission."

Centre's proposed DA hike too little too late: BJP

NEW DELHI: Delhi BJP today termed hike in dearness allowance (DA), proposed to be announced by the government, as 'too less and too late' and demanded its merger with the employees' basic pay.

"In the wake of rising prices of all essential commodities, inflation has been hurting not only government employees but also the poor and the middle class. The latest DA hike proposed to be announced by the government is too less and too late," said Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel.

Goel said the Fifth Pay Commission had recommended that if the DA crosses more than 50 per cent then it should be clubbed with the basic pay.


"This provided some relief to government employees. But this was discontinued in the Sixth Pay Commission. Thus, at present, DA is more than 80 per cent of the basic pay but it is not made part of the basic pay. Now, the DA is expected to increase by 10 to 11 per cent but the government is not waking up," he said in a statement.

The Delhi BJP chief said the government should set up the Seventh Pay Commission.

EPS-Employees' Pension Scheme may soon be merged with New Pension Scheme (NPS)

EPS - Employees' Pension Scheme may soon be merged with New Pension Scheme (NPS)

My pension is better than yours, FM tells labour ministryEPS asked to fold up and hand over subscribers to NPS

The Employees’ Pension Scheme (EPS), which provides retirement benefits to about 85.5 million subscribers of the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), may soon be merged with its rival, the New Pension Scheme (NPS).

The finance ministry has asked EPS, run by the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), a statutory body under the labour ministry, to close down and shift its beneficiaries to NPS 'on a mandatory basis'.

NPS is run by the finance ministry with no contribution from the government or any guaranteed benefits to subscribers.

EPS should be wound up or ‘grandfathered’, said Finance Minister P Chidambaram in a letter to former labour minister Mallikarjun Kharge in August 2012.

Incidentally, a World Bank study using PROST (Pension Reform Options Simulation Toolkit) model had in July 2011 certified EPS as a sustainable scheme. 'In view of the size of the scheme, the base shortfall is insignificant because if assumptions are even slightly modified, the shortfall turns into a surplus,' the study noted.


Chidambaram’s letter to Kharge was recently followed up with a meeting between officials of the EPFO, Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) and the finance ministry, with the EPFO officials making a strong case for keeping EPS alive.

According to Chidambaram, EPS’ guaranteed and defined benefits - the features that make it attractive to subscribers - are untenable. 'A defined benefit pension scheme like EPF with a committed liability at the end would be subject to constant calibration of either benefit structure or the contribution structure or a combination of both to meet that liability. All this puts constant pressure on finances…' he said in the letter.

He added that the financial viability of EPS was a concern and that any parametric change to EPS may not yield to long-term financial sustainability of EPS. 'It is recommended that EPS may be grandfathered and all new employees covered under the Employees Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1952 may be brought under the New Pension Scheme on mandatory basis rather than tinkering with the benefit structure to guarantee a minimum pension of Rs 1,000.'

The letter suggested the government had for long been considering shutting down EPS. 'In view of the persistent deficit in the EPS, it has been suggested repeatedly by the Department of Financial Services that it would be better to cap the financial liability of the Government by closing EPS at the earliest and switching over to NPS.'

Chidambaram suggested that officials in the ministry and PFRDA would engage with officials in the labour ministry to work out the modalities of the transition. He added that while on the hand, switching over to NPS would be beneficial for the employees as they would get decent returns and adequate pension, on the other, the government would be free from any open-ended and financially unsustainable liability of EPF.

EPFO officials said that the pension scheme is becoming a victim of turf war between different government departments. 'Each department wants its scheme to survive,' said an official.

The NPS architecture is based on strong IT infrastructure, which allows prompt client servicing and can provide real-time information on investment returns... Further, it is cost-effective and provides portability of account, Chidambaram said in the letter.
