One more Historical Victory for All India Railwaymen’s Federation…

OFFICIAL ORGAN OF ALL INDIA RAILWAYMEN’S FEDERATION

EDITORAIL

 ONE MORE HISTORICAL VICTORY FOR A.I.R.F.

Payment of Overtime Allowance to the Railwaymen for the period from January 2006 to 31st August. 2008 was being demanded by AIRF for payment without any delay. In the meantime meeting of Departmental Council/JCM was fixed for 4th and 5th May, 2011.

In accordance with our pre determined policy, we had already intimated that we want payment of Overtime Allowance orders from Railway Board before this JCM meeting. Even after that meeting on May 4th was Conducted in the absence of Member Staff and once more we clarified that Overtime Allowance, is not aims that Government would give at Its own but a well deserved hard earned wages of employees and has to be given.

We will attend meetings only after these payments otherwise, we will boycott the meeting. On 5th of May when Member Staff expressed his inability to Issue orders of Overtime allowance on the same day, we decided not to attend JCM any more and remained out and told MS that meeting will be attended by us after we receive a copy of Overtime Allowance orders.

Immediately we held Standing Committee meeting and resolved to hold demonstration and meetings at all GM’s, DRM’s Offices and in all the Production Units on 18.5.2011. It became a huge success with the participation of about 1 lac rail workers in the demonstration.

Railway Board were uneasy on our boycotting the JCM and on the other hand exceptional solidarity shown by Railwaymen on 18.5.2011 worked like magic and the same story Railway Board who would always pretend “To be the case under consideration, we are looking into, condition are not
well” etc. were forced to issue orders on the subject on 20th May, 2011.

This would benefit Railwaymen to the extent of a huge Rs.300 crores which Is heavily substantial. The credit for this goes to the aggressive style of union’s working which resulted in a win for Rail employees. Not only this, now the orders for calculating pensionery benefits @ 50% of last pay drawn for Railway workers retiring from Construction Organisatlons of Railways are also likely to be issued shortly.


Construction workers will get immensly benefited from this. Not only this, arrears to Running Staff, improved mileage allowance with 25% increase are the proposals that Railway Board would discuss in our next early meetings. Cadre restructuring along with recruitment of substitute has also started w.e.f. 20.5.2011. On 25.5.2011, committee has been formed for Running and Safety category employees. Member Staff also assured your federation to solve each and every issue after proper discussion.

The mute point is, why should Railway Board adapt dilly — dallying tactics every time. It is Railway Board which provides opportunities to us for waging struggles against them. In the coming week from 20th June to 24th June 2011, after boycotting the due meetings, and spearheading noisy movements against Railway Board and Finance ministry if we are able to repeat the history of our activities of 18th May 2011 once again, then I am very sure, not only Railway Board & Finance Ministry but also Govt. of India would heed to our demands.

We have to do this and exhibit our solidarity and unity. Remember the JPs great slogan — “No begging only struggle - greater Struggle now”.

What is the differences between EPF, GPF and PPF?

with 3 comments

 

What is the differences between EPF, GPF and PPF?

EPF- Employees Provident Fund
GPF - General Pension Fund
PPF - Public Provident Fund


GPF - General Provident Fund which is for the Government Employees
PPF - Individuals can save to a maximum of Rs.60000/- in a year in the account. Account can be maintained in a Post Office.
EPF - Employees Provident Fund for Private sector where 12% of Employees share and 12 % of Employer's share of Basic Salary + DA is deducted and remitted to PF Authorities


PF vs PPF: What's the difference ?

1. What is PPF and PF?
EPF/ PF (Employees Provident Fund / Provident Fund)

The Employee Provident Fund, or provident fund as it is normally referred to, is a retirement benefit scheme that is available to salaried employees.


Under this scheme, a stipulated amount (currently 12%) is deducted from the employee's salary and contributed towards the fund. This amount is decided by the government.

The employer also contributes an equal amount to the fund.


However, an employee can contribute more than the stipulated amount if the scheme allows for it. So, let's say the employee decides 15% must be deducted towards the EPF. In this case, the employer is not obligated to pay any contribution over and above the amount as stipulated, which is 12%.

PPF (Public Provident Fund)

The Public Provident Fund has been established by the central government. You can voluntarily decide to open one. You need not be a salaried individual, you could be a consultant, a freelancer or even working on a contract basis. You can also open this account if you are not earning.

Any individual can open a PPF account in any nationalised bank or its branches that handle PPF accounts. You can also open it at the head post office or certain select post offices.

The minimum amount to be deposited in this account is Rs 500 per year. The maximum amount you can deposit every year is Rs 70,000.


2. What is the return on this investment?

EPF: 8.5% per annum

PPF: 8% per annum


3. How long is the money blocked?

EPF

The amount accumulated in the PF is paid at the time of retirement or resignation. Or, it can be transferred from one company to the other if one changes jobs.

In case of the death of the employee, the accumulated balance is paid to the legal heir.

PPF

The accumulated sum is repayable after 15 years.

The entire balance can be withdrawn on maturity, that is, after 15 years of the close of the financial year in which you opened the account.

It can be extended for a period of five years after that. During these five years, you earn the rate of interest and can also make fresh deposits.

Save tax and get rich

4. What is the tax impact?

EPF

The amount you invest is eligible for deduction under the Rs 1,00,000 limit of Section 80C.

If you have worked continuously for a period of five years, the withdrawal of PF is not taxed.

If you have not worked for at least five years, but the PF has been transferred to the new employer, then too it is not taxed.

The tenure of employment with the new employer is included in computing the total of five years.

If you withdraw it before completion of five years, it is taxed.

But if your employment is terminated due to ill-health, the PF withdrawal is not taxed.

PPF

The amount you invest is eligible for deduction under the Rs 1,00,000 limit of Section 80C.

On maturity, you pay absolutely no tax.

5. What if you need the money?

EPF

If you urgently need the money, you can take a loan on your PF.

You can also make a premature withdrawal on the condition that you are withdrawing the money for your daughter's wedding (not son or not even yours) or you are buying a home.

To find out the details, you will have to talk to your employer and then get in touch with the EPF office (your employer will help you out with this).

PPF

You can take a loan on the PPF from the third year of opening your account to the sixth year. So, if the account is opened during the financial year 1997-98, the first loan can be taken during financial year 1999-2000 (the financial year is from April 1 to March 31).

The loan amount will be up to a maximum of 25% of the balance in your account at the end of the first financial year. In this case, it will be March 31, 1998.

You can make withdrawals during any one year from the sixth year. You are allowed to withdraw  50% of the balance at the end of the fourth year, preceding the year in which the amount is withdrawn or the end of the preceding year whichever is lower.

For example, if the account was opened in 1993-94 and the first withdrawal was made during 1999-2000, the amount you can withdraw is limited to 50% of the balance as on March 31, 1996, or March 31, 1999, whichever is lower.

If the account extended beyond 15 years, partial withdrawal -- up to 60% of the balance you have at the end of the 15 year period -- is allowed.
