Navodaya Vidyalayas to go Solar

with 0 Comment
Navodaya Vidyalayas to go Solar 

Minister of Human Resource Development Shri Prakash Javadekar today directed the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) to take measure for adoption of solar energy in all Navodaya Vidyalayas. Chairing the 35th Meeting of Executive Committee of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti in New Delhi today, he asked the Samiti to seek the guidance of Ministry of Power to speed up the process.

He applauded the performance of the Navodaya Vidyalaya students in 10th and 12th Board and particularly the impressive performance of NV students in IIT-JEE Advance and NEET. He noted with satisfaction that out of the 14183 NV students who appeared in NEET, 11875 qualified in the examination of which 7000+ already placed in various good medical colleges. Navodaya Vidyalayas have already become a brand for quality education and the recent successes have further enhanced its brand.

Acknowledging the important role being played by some of the NVS alumni in guiding students voluntarily to prepare for competitive examinations, Shri Javadekar directed the NVS to use social media network to connect with more such NVS alumni. This, he said, would broad-base the voluntary involvement of alumni and have a positive impact on the progress of Vidyalayas. He also appealed to NV alumni to come forward in a big way to support their Alma matter.

Shri Javadekar also desired that the teachers who are deputed for training abroad through scholarship should be asked to share a report on their learning and its utility for the system.

He also directed that water and solar energy harvesting should form part of proposals in the new building plans and explore the possibility of having water harvesting and Bio-Gas plants in existing campuses.

While reviewing the functioning of NVS, the Minister directed the Samiti to conduct study of positive impact of: 1) Student-Teacher living together 2) Teachers living together in school campus and 3) Health improvement of students.

The minister appreciated the efforts of the Samiti in filling up all posts of teachers in North Eastern region.

Hon’ble Minister of State of Human Resource Development Shri Upendra Kushwaha, Secretary School Education Shri Anil Swarup, Joint Secretaries and Financial Advisor of MHRD and NVS Commissioner, other Members and senior officials from the Samiti were also present.

Impact of Demonetisation on Black Money, Widening of Tax Base and Direct Tax Collections

with 0 Comment
Impact of Demonetisation on Black Money, Widening of Tax Base and Direct Tax Collections 

The Government of India launched a concerted drive against black money with Demonetisation being an important step in that direction. Among the main objectives of Demonetisation was the flushing out of black money and also conversion of the non-formal economy into a formal economy to expand the tax base. The impact of Demonetisation on black money, widening of tax base and Direct Tax Collections is summed up hereunder:

A.   Impact on black money:

Quantum jump in Enforcement actions based on Demonetisation data:

Searches 
158% increase in number of searches (from 447 to 1152 groups)
106% increase in seizures (from Rs. 712 crore to Rs.1469 crore)
38% increase in admission of undisclosed income (from Rs.11,226 crore to Rs. 1,54,96 crore)

Surveys
183% increase in surveys (from 4422 to 12520)
44% increase in undisclosed income detected (from Rs. 9654 crore to Rs. 13920 crore)

Operation Clean Money:

The Income Tax Department launched ‘Operation Clean Money’(OCM) on 31st January, 2017 to analyse the data of the persons who deposited large sums of cash and whose returns of income were not in sync with such deposits.

Phase 1:
In the first phase of OCM, 18 lakh suspect cases were identified through use of data analytics where cash transactions did not appear to be in line with the tax profile of depositors.

·Online verification in these cases was enabled and done in a record time of 4 weeks.

The success of the first phase was also attributable to the massive taxpayers’ awareness and media campaigns on Operation Clean Money launched by the Department.

The scale of the Operation may be gauged from the fact that response of 9.72 lakh persons in respect of 13.33 lakh accounts involving cash deposits of around Rs.2.89 lakh crore, as per pre-defined parameters on sources of the cash deposits was captured by the Income Tax Department within a short span of 3-4 weeks. Online queries were raised in more than 35000 cases and online verification was completed in more than 7800 cases.

Phase 2:
The Operation Clean money has since moved into the next phase that includes enforcement actions in high risk cases, taxpayer engagement through a dedicated website in medium risk cases and close monitoring in low risk cases.

The high, medium and low risk cases have been identified through use of advanced data analytics, including integration of data sources, relationship clustering and fund tracking.

The exercise has also unearthed large number of persons and clusters having suspect transactions. These include about 14,000 properties of more than Rs.1 crore each where persons have not even filed Income Tax Returns.  The investigations are in progress.

B.   Impact on Widening of Tax-base:

The number of e-returns of Individual taxpayers filed till 5th August, 2017 (due date of filing) increased to 2.79 crore from 2.22 crore returns filed during the corresponding period of last year, registering an increase of about 57 lakh returns (25.3%). This shows marked improvement in the level of voluntary compliance as a result of action taken by the Income Tax Department on the basis of data of cash deposits in the wake of demonetization.

The total number of all returns (electronic + paper) filed during the entire Financial Year 2016-17 was 5.43 crore which is 17.3% more than the returns filed during FY 2015-16.

For FY 2016-17, 1.26 crore new taxpayers (return filers + non-filers making tax payments) were added to the tax base (till 30.06.2017).
C.   Impact on Direct Tax Collections:

The effect of Demonetization is also clearly visible in the growth in Direct Tax Collections. Collection of Advance Tax under Personal Income Tax (i.e. other than Corporate Tax) as on 05.08.2017 showed a growth of about 41.79% over the corresponding period in F.Y. 2016-2017. Collection of Self-Assessment Tax under Personal Income Tax showed a growth of 34.25% over the corresponding period in F.Y. 2016-2017.

Remembering a Retired Warhorse 

"After 50 years of glorious service to the Nation on 11 May 2007 at Air Force Station Agra, the IAF bid adieu to its legendry old war horse."

01 September 2017 marks the 60 years of induction of the English Electric Canberra in the Indian Air Force. It was the first generation Jet Bomber manufactured in large number through the 1950s. The prototype of Canberra, first flew in May 1949 and in January 1957 the aircraft was selected by the Indian Air Force to equip its bomber and strategic reconnaissance fleet. The Canberra Jet bomber was first inducted in the IAF in No. 5 Squadron (Tuskers) at Agra on 01 September 1957.

When political turmoil broke out in Belgian Congo in 1961, UNO requested India for strike aircraft. Within five years of serving the IAF, on 09 October 1961, under the command of Wing Commander AIK Suares Vir Chakra, six Canberra aircraft of No 5 Squadron took off from Agra for Leopoldville, over 6000 km away to join the United Nations’ Multinational Force in the Congo. This was the first ever-Indian fighter-bomber contingent to take part in UN operations. The offensive operation in Congo earned the Squadron two Vir Chakras, one Vayu Sena Medal and five Vishisht Seva Medals.

The Canberras took part in all major operations including the liberation of Goa in 1961, the 1965 and 1971 Indo-Pak wars, 1987 Op Pawan in Sri Lanka, 1988 Op Cactus in Maldives and 1999 Kargil war. On 18 December 1961, Canberras of No 16 and 35 Sqn bombed the Dabolim airport forcing Portuguese forces to surrender. The Canberra last saw action in the Kargil war in 1999 where it flew recce missions, during one of the missions one aircraft’s engine was hit by a missile. The sturdy Canberra could survive the enemy’s missile attack and landed safely with all vital information. During its service, Canberra provided invaluable photo reconnaissance inputs of enemy territory during wars and peace time operations, resulting in accurate and effective operations. After 50 years of glorious service to the Nation on 11 May 2007 at Air Force Station Agra, the IAF bid adieu to its legendry old war horse.

Agenda Items for NAC Meeting : Technical Supervisors of Railways

Item No 15 : Technical Supervisors of Railways

Technical Supervisors of Railways
                
The structure of Technical Supervisors in Railways and Defence, (Defence ordinance factorioes) being industrial / establishments had been identical and same, when the 6th CPC recommendations were accepted and implemented. The 7th CPC in para 11.12.105 have created the following structure in Defence ordinance factories (Page 519 of the 7th CPC report)

“Of the total pool of posts in GP 4200 and GP 4600, ten percent should be earmarked to be placed in GP 4800.

ii. The posts in GP 4800 should be filled up from personnel in GP 4200 and GP 4600 in the following manner:
·         70 percent of such earmarked posts should be filled up through promotion from GP 4600;
·         30 percent should be filled up through a Limited Departmental Competitive

Examination in which employees from both GP 4200 and GP 4600 would be eligible to compete. This will enable deserving and meritorious employees at GP 4200 too jump GP 4600 and go directly to GP4800 (level 8)

iii. 80 percent of the employees in GP 4800, will be eligible for non-functional upgrade to level 9 [GP 5400 (PB-2)] upon completion of four years in level 8, on a seniority cum-suitability basis”.


This recommendation by not extending to Railways Technical Supervisors have disturbed the horizontal relativities. There are no levels sanctioned in Railways beyond Grade Pay equivalent of Rs. 4600. The S/S demands that the structure recommended in the case of Defence may be adopted in the Railways to maintain the relativities that were in existence.

Agenda Items for NAC Meeting : Grant of GP 5400 to Senior Section Officer of Railways & AAOs of IA&AD

Item No 14 : Grant of GP 5400 to Senior Section Officer of Railways & AAOs of IA&AD and organised Accounts (Civil Accounts, Postal Accounts and Defence Accounts)
In Para 11.40.83 of its report, the 7 CPC has recommended the following:
“in line with our recommendations for organised Accounts Cadres, it is further recommend that the employees in Grade Pay 4800 should be upgraded on completion of 4 years’ service, to the existing GP 5400 (PB-2) VIZ., Level 9 in the Pay Matrix, on non functional basis”.
Under the sub-heading “Organised Accounts Staff” the 7 CPC has recommended the following:
“11.12.40 The Commission is therefore of the view that there is no justification for excluding officers in the organised accounting departments who ate at GP 4800 from this dispensation. It therefore recommends that all officers in organised accounts cadres (in the Indian Audit and Accounts 

Department, Defence Accounts Department, Idnian Civil Accounts organization, Railways, Posts and Telecommunications) who are in GP 4800 should be upgraded, on completion of four years’ service to GP 5400 (PB-2), viz., Pay Level 9, in the pay matrix”.

The non implementation of this recommendation disturbed the horizontal relativity between the pay scales SSO of Railways and AAOs in Organised Accounts and IA&AD and Section Officers of CSS and other Gr. B Gazetted officers.

This recommendation of the 7 CPC has not been implemented yet, leading to an anomalous situation which may be resolved without delay.
