MyGov : A special open forum to share your valuable ideas

"‘India stands at a very crucial juncture today. Almost seven decades ago there was a historic mass movement under Mahatma Gandhi’s leadership due to which we attained Swaraj. Today, all of us have to be a part of another mass movement, a movement towards Surajya.

Surajya is not possible until each and every citizen will be an equal and integral part of the decision making process. The times of formulating policies from air-conditioned Government chambers are over. Policies must be made among the people, empowering every citizen to express him or herself on a wide range of issues. This would be a paradigm shift towards Surajya.

As a significant effort towards Surajya, it gives me immense pleasure in presenting to you ‘MyGov an online platform that celebrates people’s ideas and suggestions. ‘MyGov’ stands for participative governance and pertinent ideas that will create a powerful India.

‘MyGov’ is a golden opportunity to contribute in the journey towards nation building, becoming an agent of change. The platform consists of Expert Groups, with each Expert Group focusing on a particular aspect of governance. Within each group one can both ‘Do’ and ‘Discuss’. By ‘doing’, I mean taking up a series of online and onground tasks. ‘Discussions’ on this Platform revolve around specially created discussion forum for each group. Over time, the number of groups, tools to engage, tasks and discussions will increase thus enabling wider participation.

This platform is a wonderful opportunity for government departments to get the best inputs and expand the talent pool that would consist of people across the length and breadth of India.

I invite you to keep sharing tasks, inputs and at the same time enrich the discussions with your vast experience and invaluable insight. I am equally confident that my young friends would be active contributors in this initiative. Our entire nation sees the youth as a ray of hope. It is on the shoulders of the youth that India will attain its destined role a nation that will show the way to the world.."

Alleging harassment of citizens at the RTOs, Gadkari said, "Tithe Laxmi darshanacha khel chalto (money rules there)." The minister said a system employing new technology would be introduced to nab traffic violators. "Under the system, you will be served a notice at your doorstep if you break a traffic rule. And if you go to court against the notice and lose the case, you will have to pay three times the fine," he said. The government was preparing a plan to improve traffic in urban areas with the help of the traffic models in the UK and other countries, he said.

Income Tax exemption limit raised to Rs 2.5 lakh; investment ceiling hiked to Rs 1.5L

Bringing cheer to individual taxpayers, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his maiden Union Budget 2014-15 in Parliament on Thursday, raised personal tax exemption limit to Rs 2.5 lakh from the current Rs 2 lakh.

Income tax exemption limit for senior citizens has been raised to Rs 3 lakh.

The Investment limit under Section 80C has also been hiked to Rs 1.5 lakh from the current Rs 1 lakh, while the FM increased housing loan interest rate deduction limit to Rs 2 Lakh.

In further relief to the depositors, the FM announced that the PPF (Public Provident Fund) deposit ceiling will be raised to Rs 1.5 lakh from the existing Rs 1 lakh.

The FM also announced to raise FDI in Defence and Insurance sectors to 49 percent and said that the subsidy regime, particularly food and fuel, will be overhauled.

Assuring investors that retrospective amendments to tax laws will be undertaken with extreme caution, Jaitley said all fresh cases arising out of the 2012 amendment of IT Act will be looked into by a high-level CBDT committee.

However, the existing tax disputes, arising out of Retrospective Amendment to the Income tax Act, 1961, and are pending in courts, will be allowed to reach their logical conclusions, he said.

Stating that his predecessors have left a very daunting target of meeting the fiscal deficit, Jaitley said that the BJP government will take this as a challenge and meet the fiscal deficit target of 4.1 percent of GDP.

Jaitley told Parliament that India `s 1.2 billion people were" exasperated "after two years of economic growth of below 5 percent.

He vowed that Asia's third largest economy would expand at a rate of 7-8 percent within three to four years.

DOPT rejects 6 days week working schedule

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) will soon inform Parliament that the government is not going back to a six-day week for its employees, even as a senior representative of the central government employees said that women employees were biggest opponents of any such change by the new government.

A senior DoPT official told ET on Tuesday that all individual ministries would be advised that before they ask employees to come to work on Saturdays, they were expected to first consult the Joint Consultative Machinery set up in each ministry which has representatives from the staff side before implementing the same. There was confusion among government ranks last week after the road ministry issued an order asking employees to report to work on all Saturdays except the second. The same was apparently withdrawn after women employees in the ministry took it up with transport minister Nitin Gadkari.

Employees in many other ministries have also been asked informally to report to work on Saturdays in case senior officials or the respective minister is in office. ET has learnt that DoPT will soon inform Parliament that the government would continue to work 5-days-a-week to end all speculation on this as it has received questions on the same from MPs.

Shiva Gopal Mishra, Secretary (staff side) of the National Council, JCM, told ET that "no government ministry can enforce six-day week on employees without the concurrence of the DoPT." Not just DoPT's concurrence, the government also needs to consult employees on the same through the JCM mechanism.

There will be no use of going back to a six-day week system as it will only raise electricity costs of the government. Also, women employees form a sizeable proportion of the workforce and they are strongly against any move to resort to a six-day week, "Mishra, who is also general secretary, All India Railwaymen's Federation, told ET.

Most women employees use the weekend for pending household chores. The JCM, chaired by the Cabinet Secretary, is a joint group of various staff unions of central government employees supposed to act as a platform for constructive dialogue between the representatives of the staff side and the official side for peaceful resolution of all disputes.

Don't forget to claim Rs. 10,000/ - deduction u/s 80TTA while filing your Tax Returns

What is Section 80TTA?

As many taxpayers are not aware about section 80TTA under Income Tax Act'1961 which was introduced through Finance Act, 2012. Section 80TTA provides a deduction of Rs. 10,000/ - on your income from interest on saving bank accounts.

Who can claim deduction u/s 80TTA?
Deduction u / s 80TTA is applicable to individual taxpayers and HUF only. This benefit is not available to a firm, an Association of Persons or a Body of Individuals.

Eligible savings account for claiming deduction:

Saving accounts with any of following entities will qualify:
Bank or banking company;
Co-operative Society engaged in carrying on the banking business and as specified.
Post office Saving Account.

How does it work?

Interest earned on your savings a/c or FDs has always been taxable under the head "Income from Other Sources". In order to claim deduction, you have to first include interest income in your total income and then claim deduction u / s 80TTA. For example, if you have received interest of Rs 18,000/- from your saving bank accounts then you have to pay tax on Rs 8000/- only i.e. (18,000-10,000) thus Rs 10,000 / - can be claimed as a deduction u/s 80TTA. But if total interest income from all your savings accounts is Rs. 9000/ - only, then you don't need to pay tax at all and the entire amount would be deductible u / s 80TTA.

Is section 80TTA applicable to FD Interest?

No, this deduction is NOT applicable to the interest you received on your FDs/ time deposit or term deposit. Term deposit means a deposit received by the bank for a fixed period and can be withdrawn only after the expiry of the predefined fixed period.

Does no "TDS" means "no need to pay Tax"?

Income Tax Act allows certain deposits & accounts on which no tax is required to be deducted irrespective of any limit for the amount of such interest. Hence there is no TDS on your saving account interest. Regarding FDs, Banks deducts Tax only if your total interest income is more than Rs. 10000 / -.

In any case, you have to pay tax on FD or saving account interest as per your tax slab. And as mentioned above you can claim deduction up to Rs. 10000/- with respect to your savings a/c interest. For e.g. if bank is deducting 10% tax on your FD interest and you fall under the higher slab of say 20% or 30% then you need to pay the balance tax.

IT department to send tax refund updates via SMS, email

The income tax (IT) department will soon start updating taxpayers on the status of their IT refunds and the processing of certain tax statements by sending real-time text messages (through SMS) and emails, on the same lines as credit card and bank transactions.

The department's systems wing has now deployed a robust software and hardware platform that would host and streamline the personal email addresses and mobile numbers of an individual or any other entity who files an IT return, electronically or manually.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes, the apex authority of the IT department, has recently notified new rules stating taxpayers filing their returns this year (assessment year 2014-15) will have to mandatorily share their personal email addresses and mobile numbers with the department.

The IT department's central processing centre in Bangalore, henceforth, will send a communication to the taxpayer on the status of refunds or if there is any problem regarding his or her returns filed. The aim is to update and stay in touch with the taxpayer as done by credit card firms and banks.

The new measure will make a huge difference in addressing the grievances of taxpayers with regard to refunds and issues in filing of IT returns.

A valid Email ID and Mobile Number to be Registered / Updated on the E-Filing Website of the Income Tax Department

A valid Email ID and Mobile Number has to be registered / updated on the e-filing website of the Income Tax Department so that direct communication with taxpayer can be possible. For details, taxpayers can log on to:

The Department will send separate One Time Passwords (OTP) also referred as PIN on the mobile and email provided by the taxpayer. The OTPs have to be entered by the taxpayer after logging into their e-filing account to authenticate the same. The OTPs will remain valid for 24 hours within which the taxpayer has to complete the process. For 'Foreign / NRI' taxpayers, the OTP validation of the email ID would be sufficient.

Validation of email and mobile numbers has been introduced to facilitate taxpayers as in many cases incorrect emails and mobile numbers have been provided and taxpayers did not receive important communication from the Department. Further, it has been observed that in many cases taxpayers are not able to reset their password since the new temporary password from the Department may be sent to their registered email which may be different from the taxpayer's personal email, eg email of their intermediary.

This is a one-time process to validate the mobile number and email ID. However, whenever the taxpayer changes the Mobile Number or email ID in their Profile, the process will be repeated to ensure that the particulars provided are correct. Further, this validation will ensure that Department can send an OTP for resetting the password used for Login in case the taxpayer has forgotten the password.

One mobile number or email ID can be used for a maximum of 10 user accounts as the Primary Contact-Mobile Number and Email ID in e-Filing. This is to ensure that family members and related business concerns (not exceeding 10 separate users) not having personal email or mobile can be covered under a common email or mobile, but in general taxpayers should have their own unique email ID and Mobile registered with the Department.

The taxpayer can enter any other person's email or mobile number in addition, as a Secondary Contact (without any restriction on the number of user accounts linked as a Secondary Contact). Using "Profile Settings à My Profile" the taxpayer can select to include the Secondary Contact to also receive emails, alerts etc.

It is advised that the emails and SMS from the Income tax Department may be included in the 'safe list' or 'white list' to prevent the communications from the Department from being blocked or rejected or sent to Spam folder. Taxpayers are also advised not to share their user-id and password of their e-filing account with others to prevent un-authorized access.Taxpayers can reset their password using the `Forgot Password?` Link while logging in to their e-filing account and by providing the necessary details.

The Department requests the cooperation of all taxpayers for completing this validation process at the earliest for a smooth and convenient return filing process.

Tax exemption limit may be doubled under 80C to Rs 2 lakh

Seeking to boost household savings, the finance ministry is considering doubling the exemption limit for investments by individuals in financial instruments to Rs 2 lakh.

Presently the investments and expenditures up to a combined limit of Rs 1 lakh get exemptions under Sections 80C, 80CC and 80 CCC of the Income-Tax Act.

Sources said the revenue department is assessing the burden on the exchequer in case of increase in the benefit limit. The announcement is expected in the Budget.

The budget for 2014-15 will be presented by finance minister Arun Jaitley in the Lok Sabha on July 10.

There have been demands from bankers and insurers to hike the tax exemption limit from Rs 1 lakh per annum to encourage household savings.

The savings rate has come down from over 38 per cent of GDP in 2008 to 30 per cent in 2012-13.

The hike in the exemption limit, sources said, would provide much needed relief to the salary earners who are reeling under the impact of high inflation.

The Direct Taxes Code (DTC) too has recommended that the combined ceiling for investments and expenditures be raised to Rs 1.5 lakh per annum.

The financial instruments which enjoy exemption include life insurance premium, public provident fund, employees provident fund, National Savings Certificates, repayment of capital on home loan, equity linked saving schemes sold by mutual funds and bank FDs of five year maturity.
