The Staff Side’s Suggestion on MACP’s Core Issue

The First Meeting of Joint committee on MACP was held on 25-5-2010 . Altogether 8 issues related MACP anomalies were discussed in the meeting.


The MACPS (Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme) order was issued on 19-5-2008. Since then all the Central Government Employees Federations, confederations are demanding that Grade Pay of the next Promotional Post to be granted under the new MACP Scheme instead of granting next higher Grade Pay in the revised Grade Pay Hierarchy.


Now it has been informed through the circular published by confederation that the above said core issue of MACP was taken for discussion in the meeting. Staff side pressed for placement in the Grade Pay of the Promotional Post instead of next higher Grade Pay in the hierarchy of revised Pay Band and Grade Pay. It was insisted because the career progression only means the promotion in the hierarchy and not to a Grade Pay which is not present in the hierarchy of the respective department.


But after that, it is believed that the Staff Side also gave an alternative that first two MACPs after 10 and 20 years should be to the next promotional post as per the hierarchy of respective department as under the erstwhile ACP scheme and thereafter the third MACP in the next Grade Pay of the Revised Pay Band and Grade Pay.


Why should the Staff Side compromising their position of demanding promotional Grade Pay under MACP,by suggesting that first two MACP should be in promotional hierarchy and third MACP can be in Grade Pay hierarchy?

GRATUITY ACT RAISES UNIONS HACKLE

Gratuity Act raises unions’ hackles

The Payment of Gratuity (Amendment) Act, 2010, which was passed by Parliament in its last session, has raised the hackles of various trade unions.

The Act has raised the maximum limit of gratuity payable to an employee from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh. Then why are the trade unions angry? It is the date of implementation of the Act, which has annoyed workers engaged in the private sector, public sector undertakings and the banking sectors, among others.

The upper limit of the gratuity for government employees was raised to Rs 10 lakh with effect from January 1, 2006, when the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission came into effect.

Immediately after that various trade unions demanded that a similar provision should be made for the employees of the private sector and public sector undertakings. Conceding the demand, the government introduced the Payment of Gratuity (Amendment) Bill in Parliament. While passing the Bill, Parliament said the Act would come into force on such date “as the Central Government may, by notification in the official gazette appoint.”

The Act received the assent of the President on May 17 last and the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment notified it on May 24, stating that the Act would become effective from that day. The trade unions say the notification is discriminatory. While for the government employees the maximum limit of gratuity has been revised with effect from January 1, 2006, for those of the private sector and the public sector undertakings it would be from May 24. Thus, the employees of these sectors, who retired between January 1, 2006 and May 24, 2010, would be sufferers. SR Khatri, general secretary of the State Bank of India Employees Organisation, said the government had yielded to the pressure of various organisations of private employers, who did not want to pay enhanced gratuity to their employees retiring before May 24. He said the trade unions would agitate against this discrimination.

TN Goel, president of the State Bank of Indian Officers Federation, said it was highly unfair to the employees of the public sector banks, whose pay was revised with effect from November 2007. The notification should have taken care of this fact.

State secretary of the Haryana CITU Surender Malik said the enhanced gratuity should be payable to all with effect from January 1, 2006. He also demanded that various retirement benefits should not be subject to income tax.

Regulator pitches for tax relief on New Pension Scheme to make it attractive

The interim pension regulator has sought tax relief on investments in the New Pension Scheme (NPS) to make it more attractive to employees of private sector firms.


The interim pension regulator has sought tax relief on investments in the New Pension Scheme (NPS) to make it more attractive to employees of private sector firms.

The Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) has written to the finance ministry seeking level playing field for NPS with other long-term savings schemes that will get tax benefits under the proposed Direct Taxes Code. “All we want is equal treatment,” a PFRDA official said.


NPS is currently under the Exempt-Exempt-Tax system, which means investment will be taxed when it is withdrawn. Provident fund and many of the small savings schemes are under the Exempt-Exempt-Exempt (EEE) regime, and are not taxed at any point.

“If the finance ministry plans to continue with the EEE regime for long-term saving schemes, we want the NPS also to get the same treatment,” the official said, requesting anonymity. “Several multinational companies are talking to us. We need more clarity on the tax treatment,” he said.

The pension regulator has, in its letter to the central board of direct taxes (CBDT), said tax benefits will make the scheme more attractive and will help increase its share.


While a few public sector units such as Nalco and Damodar Valley Corporation have already transferred a portion of their superannuation funds to the NPS, many private sector companies and public sector banks are also exploring the option as it would rid them of the headache of administering and managing the funds.


“This would be a good step. It would allow private companies to move their superannuation funds to the NPS,” said Amit Gopal, vice-president of pension consultant India Life Capital.


The PFRDA has further requested for an additional window under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act for contributions by subscribers’ employers.


Investments in specified schemes up to Rs 1 lakh are exempt under Section 80 C of the Income Tax Act. The budget for this year has given an additional exemption of Rs 20,000 for investments in infrastructure schemes.

Under Indian laws, companies with over 100 employees have to contribute 12% of an employee’s salary to the provident fund with an equal contribution from the employer.


The NPS, a defined contribution superannuation scheme for government employees, was thrown open to the private sector in May last year. The scheme offers subscribers the flexibility to decide their investment portfolio as well as choose between fund managers.


With weighted returns of over 12% annually, NPS is expected to be the ideal long-term saving instrument for workers in the unorganised sector. Its low fund management fees of 0.009% make it attractive.


The scheme, however, has managed only 6,500 private subscribers, partly because it does not enjoy some tax benefits given to private provident fund and private super annuation funds.

RENT FREE ACCOMADATION VS HRA (HOUSE RENT ALLOWANCE)

House rent allowance, or HRA, is a major component of your salary. This is given by an employer to an employee to meet the cost of renting a home.


As a salaried employee you can claim a tax exemption on such an amount. But there are certain conditions that you need to understand to claim such exemptions



How is the exemption on HRA calculated?

The tax exemption on HRA is computed as the minimum of following three conditions: i) Actual HRA as per you pay slip; ii) 40%/ 50% of your basic salary; iii) The rent amount minus 10% of the salary


If you stay in a metro — Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi or Chennai — your HRA would be 50% of your salary. In other cities/towns, it would be 40% of salary. For example, if your salary is Rs 40,000 and you live in Mumbai, HRA would be Rs 20,000 (50% of the salary). Let's assume that you pay a rent of Rs 15,000. The amount of rent paid minus 10% of the salary is Rs 6,000. The least of these is Rs 6,000, which would be taken as the HRA exemption. Hence the balance (i.e. rent minus HRA exemption) Rs 9,000 will be taxes



When can you claim exemption on HRA?


You can claim exemption on rent given to parents. For example, you live with your parents and pay them rent. This would technically make your parents the landlords. In such an case, one of your parents should declare the rent paid by you in his/her personal income tax return to prevent litigation in future. However, you cannot claim exemption on rent paid to your spouse. Tax experts say that the relationship between a husband and wife is not commercial in nature and they are supposed to stay together.


You should provide your employer with accurate rent information so that the company can credit you with the eligible amount of relief before deducting tax at source. Another alternative is that you can also claim such exemption when you file the tax return and seek a refund.


If you receive HRA for the period during which you were not occupying a rental accommodation, then you can’t claim any tax exemption. In all cases it is advisable for you to maintain rent receipts as they are the only proof for rent payments.


Is your landlord an NRI?
According to Section 195, all Indian income of an NRI is subject to TDS. This rule applies to rent too.


Any resident Indian is subjected to TDS for rents of over Rs 1.20 lakh per annum. “But if you have rented a house from an NRI landlord, the onus is on you to deduct tax at source and pay it to the government.
The TDS is a flat 30.9%,” says Vaibhav Sankla, executive director, Adroit tax services

If you have taken a home loan to buy a house, say, in Mumbai, but you reside in another city, you can get tax benefits on your housing loan.


If you have bought a house but stay in a rental accommodation in the same city because your house is not ready for possession, you are entitled to tax benefits on HRA. “You can claim tax benefits on the home loan only if your home is ready to live in during that financial year. Once the construction on your home is complete for possession, the HRA benefit stops,” explains Mr Sankla.

However, if you have bought a house by taking a home loan and stay in a rented accommodation after giving you house on rent, you will be entitled to all the tax benefits mentioned above.


Rent-free accommodation vs HRA

The government had announced the new perquisite rules in December 2009, which are effective retrospectively from April 1, 2009. The value of the perquisite determined in case of furnished accommodation is 10% per annum of the cost of furniture if owned by the employer. In case of hotel accommodation, the perquisite value is to be determined as 24% of the salary paid or payable or actual hotel charges paid by the employer, whichever is lower, for the period during which such accommodation is provided to the employee, explains Vikas Vasal, executive director of KPMG.


So under the new rules, should one opt for rent-free accommodation or claim exemption on HRA? “You should take a decision keeping in view your requirements, salary level, perquisite value and the tax impact,”
