FILING OF INCOME TAX RETURN DATE EXTENDED UPTO 4th AUG 2010

Press Release
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has decided to
extend the due date of filing of income tax returns to 4th August
2010 for taxpayers for whom the due date ends today, which is
31st July 2010. All paper returns or e-returns filed on or before 4th
August 2010 will be considered as filed within the due date.
The decision was taken in view of some technical snags in
the e-filing computer system, and inclement weather at various
locations, due to which taxpayers have reported difficulties in filing
or uploading income tax returns.

DA FROM 1.7.2010 WOULD BE 10% AND RAISED TO 45%

DA from July 2010 : AICPIN for the month of June-2010 published by Labour Bureau


Just now All India Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) on base 2001=100 value has been released by Labour Bureau. The value of the index stands at 174 level, so in this situation, the Dearness Allowance for Central Government Employees will be rised 10% and total of 45% (35% + 10%).

All India Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) on base 2001=100 for the month of June, 2010 increased by 2 points and stood at 174 (one hundred and seventy four).

The index decreased by 1 point each in Ludhiana and Ghaziabad centres, while in the remaining 12 centres the index remained stationary.

The maximum increase of 8 points in Varanasi centre is mainly due to increase in the prices of Rice, Wheat, Fresh Milk, Onion, Vegetable and Fruit items, Electricity Charges, Bus Fare, Tailoring Charges, etc. The increase of 6 points in Quilon centre is due to increase in the prices of Rice, Fish Fresh, Onion, Vegetable and Fruit items, Cigarette, Tailoring Charges, etc. and in Giridih centres it is due to increase in the prices of Mustard Oil, Fish Fresh, Turmeric Powder, Vegetable and Fruit items, Soft Coke, etc. However, the decrease of 1 point each in Ludhiana and Ghaziabad centres is due to decrease in the prices of Onion, Vegetable items, Sugar, etc.

1. Ahmedabad – 169
2. Bangalore –182
3. Chennai – 162
4. Delhi – 159

AICEIA MET REVENUE SECRETARY AND CHAIRMAN ON29.07.2010

Friday, July 30, 2010

Before reaching to Indore we stopped at New Delhi for a couple of days; these two days emerged as one of our many productive days. On 29th July 2010 at 2.15 P.M. ,met Chairman C.B.E.C. the agenda for discussion is placed underneath:
· Kolkata High Court case and role to be played by the Board
· Restructuring and the Inspectors future
· Fixation of revised pay in the 7450/- pay scale
· MACP for promote officers
Intimated him that we are going to meet Revenue Secretary in the evening at 6.00 to narrate the RTI findings collected and permeated by Pune Genl. Secy.
The discussions held will be intimated to all the delegates of Indore CEC.
In the Evening we met Revenue Secretary Sri Sunil Mitra, at 6.00 ‘o’ clock; initially we were allowed for five ( 5) minutes, but as soon as we have started narrating
· stagnation of the cadre and
· notional fixation
We got good response from Revenue Secretary and the meeting continued for nearly half an hour; we have submitted the findings of the RTI reply on our claim for notional fixation from 01.01.1996 and requested RS to take some personal initiative to resolve this long pending issue. During discussion we repeatedly mentioned that Department of revenue always felt that it is a right demand from our side but this is only department of expenditure who is denying the justice to this most deprived servants of Govt of India.
The most appreciable part of this meeting is the role of Sri Abhay Singh Shekhawat,Joint Secy (North), who rushed to Delhi receiving a single call from S.G. and not only accompanied S.G. but also participated in the discussion with Chairman and with Revenue Secretary. General Secretary Delhi Circle was also present in the delegation which met Chairman.
Possibly it is known to you all that the Kolkata High Court Case is coming up today once again, unfortunately today also our case listed at point no. 8 in the appellate side, let us hope for the best. All the CEC members through out the country are once again requested to come to Indore CEC meeting positively as this is going to be one of the crucial CEC meeting before Convention, restructuring.
Thanking you all

Dear friends

All India Inspectors’ Association Central India Circle is privileged for having been provided the opportunity to host Central Executive Committee meeting of the All India Association at Indore on 31st July 2010 and 1st August 2010, the circular for which has already been issued by the Secretary General on June 28, 2010.

As the host unit it is our pleasure to invite you to the Central Executive Committee meeting of the AICEIA at Indore on 31st July 2010 & 1st August 2010.

Matters of paramount importance – stagnation, regional disparities in promotions, consideration of base-cadre seniority for promotion to Group A posts ,the prolonged uncertainty as regards cadre-restructuring, grant of Rs 5400/- GP to Inspectors who have completed 4 years after getting ACP, grant of ACP to all Inspectors (whether promotees or DR) after 10 years of service as Inspector, notional fixation of pay in the scale of Rs6500 – 10,000/- wef 01.01.2006, and a host of other such issues confront the cadre today. In our role as the unit hosting this meet at this crucial juncture, we hope to see impassioned discussions and brainstorming sessions bringing forth radical ideas that would, in due course of time, prove this CEC to be important milestone in the AICEIA’s journey,

The boarding and lodging for the night of 30th July 2010 & for the night intervening 31st July 2010 and 1st August 2010 have been made at Sangam Palace, Near Rajiv Gandhi Statue Circle, Choithram Hospital Chouraha, A B road, Indore-the venue for the meet.

It is located in the city’s main square near Chhatri Baug where Chhatries(cenotaphs) erected in memory of the erstwhile Holkar rulers are outstanding examples of Maratha Architecture and sculpture.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008- Revision of option exercised under Rule 6 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008


———

In accordance with the provisions contained in Rule 11 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008, where a Government servant opts to continue to draw his pay in the existing scale from the 1st day of January 2006 and switch over to the revised scale from a date later than the 1st day of January, 2006, his pay from the later date in the revised scale is required to be fixed under Rule 11(i) of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. As per Rule 5 of these Rules, this option to switch over to the revised pay structure from a date later than 1.1.2006 is available to a Government Servant:

(i) Who elects to continue to draw pay in the existing scale until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing scale or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in that scale.

(ii) who has been placed in a higher pay scale between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of these Rules on account of promotion, upgradation of pay scale etc. the Government servant may elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion, up-gradation etc.

3. As per Rule 6 (1) of Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 the option in the format appended to the Second Schedule was required to be exercised within three months from the date of issue of these Rules.

AN UPDATE BY AICEIA

Saturday, July 3, 2010
UPDATE

A meeting of the President, Secretary General, Assistant Secretary General, and Liaison Secretary was held on 02.07.2010 at Chennai. The Working President couldn’t attend due to domestic pressures. Vice President (SZ), Joint Secretary (SZ) and President, Chennai attended the meeting.

The meeting reviewed the status of various issues and deliberated on the action to be taken.

The meeting discussed the difficulty caused to the members at large due to the stay on promotions to the cadre of Superintendent of Central Excise and to that of Assistant Commissioner in terms of the order of the Honourable High Court of Calcutta. The stay order was issued in the month of March and every one expected that the stay would be vacated well in time to issue the promotion orders after the calendar DPC. But the delay occurred in collecting and collating data for finalizing the counter affidavit of the department delayed the matter. Subsequent to the filing of the Counter Affidavit, the petitioners were granted time to file their rejoinder. There is yet another reason that is delaying the matter further – the non constitution of division bench in the Honourable Court. It is expected that all processes would be completed and the case would be listed shortly.

Yet, there could be two contingencies which may require action on our part. One is that the case is not being listed even after the constitution of the Division Bench and the other is the non vacation of the stay order after hearing. We are of the view that in such a scenario, the Association or some affected individual, next in line for promotion, would have to implead in the case for a limited purpose of modifying the order so as to permit the Department to issue promotion orders on an ad hoc basis, subject to the final out come of the petition. In this regard we make it crystal clear that the association is in no way contesting or defending the relief prayed for by the petitioners before the Court, rather we are of the firm belief that whatever is provided by the Constitution of India and other laws for the up-liftment of our unfortunate brethren should be extended to them in letter and spirit. At the same time the association also has to strike a balance vis-à-vis the interests of the members at large, some of them who has not been benefited by ACP/MACP may retire in this month or next, loosing their promotion between the cup and the lip, there by loosing on their pension for the rest of their life. In these circumstances, it was decided that we would implead in the case in the event the petition is not getting listed even after a week from the constitution of the Division Bench or if the stay order is not modified even after hearing.

The meeting considered the apprehension expressed by various corners regarding the ongoing restructuring exercise and the opinions that the restructuring should be rejected in toto. It was decided that the Association should not be party to any move to derail the process. Our role now would be to ensure that the commitments given by the authorities in our discussion with them are not diluted in any stage before the implementation. Simultaneously, we should avail all opportunities to bargain for more and to get the ratio between excise & customs revised.

The meeting placed on record their appreciation to Com. Sanjay Srinivasan, Secretary, AICEIA Pune Circle for having obtained valuable information on grant of notional fixation of pay to other ministries which is relevant to our case. The issue would be addressed afresh utilizing these inputs.

Before signing off, I wish to express my strong reservations on some of the comments placed in the blog. The facility to place comments was given as a measure to receive constructive criticism, opinions, feed back from members and also as an indicator of the highest democratic values cherished by this organization. Most of the other service organizations do not offer this facility. We know very well that many of the comments are from non members – not only of the association, but also of the cadre. But we have always felt that the person penning the comment have some interest in this cadre. Of late, some of the comments are on the borderline of vulgarity, which place the entire cadre in bad light. This site is viewed by large number of non-members. Don’t be under the impression that the leadership of the association would be annoyed and demoralized with such comments. We have sufficient resilience to see through these comments. If you want the satisfaction of using foul language, please do that by emails to our mail IDs and spare the exhibition of filth in public. I request everyone to maintain decorum and dignity while commenting on the blog; lest, we would be constrained to disband the facility.

Thanks for the update Mr. Zachariah. We are anxiously waiting for the restructuring to come and bring some respite for us. We at Lucknow are about to complete 18 years as Inspectors and restructuring seems to be the only hope for us. Any time frame for its implementation?

Thanks for an update. What ever the cause we must stay united. It is very sad that the Shillong brothers are waiting with 23 years service. I think Income Tax the same batch people must be either Deputy Commissioners or Joint Commissioners. They have unity they achieve everything unitedly, why not we?
I request the unit representatives to take initiative for completion of DPC pending vacation of stay, so that there is no further delay in issuing promotions.
