Retirement Age 60 to 62 : Cabinet enhances retirement age of teaching faculties to 62

Retirement Age 60 to 62 : Cabinet enhances retirement age of teaching faculties to 62

Cabinet enhances retirement age of teaching faculties to 62 - Excelsior Correspondent

SRINAGAR, June 19: In yet another major decision ahead of the Assembly elections, State Cabinet, which met under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, here this afternoon, enhanced the retirement age of teaching faculties of the Universities of Kashmir/ Jammu, SKUAST, Kashmir/ Jammu and Government Medical Colleges, Srinagar/ Jammu from 60 years to 62 years.

The announcement in this regard was made by the Chief Minister during the Rehbar-e-Taleem teachers conference at Jammu few days back and the same received the Cabinet’s approval today.

The Cabinet also approved the reckoning of the five years of service rendered by Rehbar-e-Taleem teachers before regularization, for the purpose of fixing their seniority and counting such service, notionally, for pension and other retirement benefits, wherever applicable.

It was also decided that after regularization the services of Rehbar-e-Taleem teachers will be transferable within the district to which they belong.

The Cabinet also approved the setting up of a one-man commission headed by Justice (Rtd) M L Koul to enquire into the circumstances, leading to deaths by firing, or otherwise, in law and order situations in different districts of Kashmir valley, during 2010.

The Commission of enquiry will also enquire into the adequacy, or otherwise, of the force used, fix responsibility, wherever excessive force has been used, resulting in fatalities, and where due care has not been taken to avoid such fatalities, suggest measures to avoid the recurrence of such incidents in future and recommend the action to be taken against those found responsible in any such incidents.

The Commission will submit its report to the Government within a period of three months from the date of issuance of the notification in this regard.

The Cabinet also approved the recommendations of J&K State Commission of Backward Classes for inclusion of 38 villages in the list of Backward Areas.

The villages include Balsaroo, Godhan, Kadyal, Lathari, Mawa, Brahmina, Majoor, Sandal and Sumah of tehsil Akhnoor and district Jammu, Dragu, Tehsil Bhaderwah district Doda, Rajool, Kummi, Partyal, Padal, Deon, Mohargarh, Talhar, Kathar-Brahmana and Dhergarh of tehsil and district Samba, Pamrote and Fazalabad of tehsil Surankote and Gursai of tehsil Mendher district Poonch, Lower Bhatian of tehsil Thannamandi, Dehri Ralyote of tehsil Rajouri, hamlet Charung of village Hasplote, Hasyote, Rajdhani, Saim Sammat, Dodason Payeen, hamlet Ghaikhakha of village Dodasan and hamlet Remote of village Dodasan Balla of tehsil Thannamandi district Rajouri, Audsoo, Ganoora and Lalan of tehsil Anantnag, Odina of tehsil Sonawari district Bandipora, Sehpora tehsil Anantnag, Watalbagh tehsil Ganderbal, Khanpoora and Sheikhzoo of tehsil Lar district Ganderbal.

In another important decision, the Cabinet approved formation of Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for development of the Coal Block at KudnaliLaburi, (Talcher) in Odisha allocated jointly to JKSPD & NTPC by the Union Ministry of Coal.

The SPV Board of Directors will be comprised of five Directors including Administrative Secretary PDD J&K, who will be the Chairperson of the Board of Directors. The approval also includes signing of Joint Venture Agreement by the J&K SPDC & NTPC besides setting up of End Use Power Plant in Odisha with NTPC.

The allocation of the Coal Block is a major achievement for Jammu and Kashmir, which suffers from energy deficit especially during winter season when the generation of power through various HEPs decreases significantly owing to low discharge in the rivers.

The State Government with this major initiative will be able to establish a dedicated base load Thermal Power Station which would effectively wipe out the current energy deficit of nearly 28 per cent and improve the reliability of power supply round the year.

The decision is in line with the broader policy of the State Government under the leadership of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to make the State energy sufficient by harnessing huge hydro potential available to the State along with the Solar and Thermal Power.

Within next five years, the State Government expects that these efforts will prove to be fruitful for the people and will give major boost to the economy of the State.

The creation of Local Area Development Fund (LADF) for all Hydro-Electric Projects commissioned during and after 2008 with contribution of 1 % free power generated by the project allocated to State for the purpose by all hydro-electric projects also received the nod of Cabinet.

The State Government will also facilitate 1 % by way of Development Grants. A special provision for creation of LADF has been made under the State Hydro Power Policy to carry out Local Development Activities to ensure visible additional benefit to local communities in the project area as part of the cost of the project.

It also approved recasting of Section 185-A(2) of the J&K Water Resources (Regulation & Management) Act, 2010 so that the fund, so created, will be operated upon by the Administrative Secretary, Finance Department, for the purpose of being utilized for the establishment of hydel projects, hydro-electric projects, multi purpose hydro-electric projects, buying back hydro-electric power projects, already established in the State, capital investment in the electric transmission and distribution network within the territory of the State, and the purchase of power by the State Government or its entities, with the prior approval of the Government.

Income tax exemption on children education allowance

Income tax exemption on children education allowance

Children Education Allowance (CEA) under section 10 (14) read with Rule 2Bb(2)(5) of the Income Tax Act is Rs.I00 per month per child.

This limit as fixed more than 2 decades back when the maximum amount of Children Education AIlowance for Central Government Employees was fixed at Rs. 100/- per month per child under the IVth Central Pay Commission. Now the current rate of this allowance is Rs.1000 per child.

Para 5.4 (A)(13) of Income Tax Circular dated 16.8.2011 indicates the details w.r.t. “Tuition Fee” which can be claimed for deduction under Section 80C. The same is reproduced below:

“A. As per section 80C, an employee will be entitled to deductions for the whole of amounts paid or deposited in the current financial year in the following schemes, subject to a limit of Rs.1,00,000/-:
13. Tuition fees, whether at the time of admission or thereafter, paid to any university, college, school or other educational institution situated in India, for the purpose of full-time education of any two children of the employee.

Full-time education includes any educational course offered by any university, college, school or other educational institution to a student who is enrolled full-time for the said course. It is also clarified that full-time education includes play-school activities, pre-nursery and nursery classes.

It is clarified that the amount allowable as tuition fees shall include any payment of fee to any university, college, school or other educational institution in India except the amount representing payment in the nature of development fees or donation or capitation fees or payment of similar nature.”

Apart from Section 80c,Children’s education allowance up to Rs. 100 per month per child for a maximum of two children and Hostel expenditure allowance of Rs. 300 per month per child for a maximum of two children is exempt from Income Tax. Hence 1200 only claim in this year. However since a part of the allowance relates to previous year you can claim relief under Section 89(1).

Clarifications regarding introduction of Pension Scheme and Post Superannuation Medical Benefits in CPSEs

Clarifications regarding introduction of Pension Scheme and Post Superannuation Medical Benefits in CPSEs

Government of India
Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises
Department of Public Enterprises
Public Entcrpnscs Bhawan

BLock No.14, CGO Complex, Lodi Road
New Delhi, the 21st May, 2014

Subject:- Clarifications regarding introduction of Pension Scheme and Post Superannuation Medical Benefits in CPSEs

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department OM No.2(70)/08-DPE (WC) dated 26.11.2008 and 2(70)/08-DPE (WC) datcd 2.4.2009 regarding pay revision of executives and non-unionized supervisors of CPSEs w.e.f. 1.1.2007 which inter-alla provides guidelines regarding Superannuation benefits including Pension and Post Superannuation Medical Benefit Scheme of the CPSES, DPE has been receiving certain queries in this regard. The following clarifications may be kept in mind while finalizing the Pension and Post Superannuation Medical Benefit Scheme of the CPSEs:
i) The condition of 30% of Basic Pay + DA for superannuation benefits as prescribed in DPE O.Ms. dated 26.11.2008 and 02.04.2009 and as amended from time to time, are to be followed strictly.
ii) These schemes (pension and post-superannuation medical benefits) would be subject to the factors like affordability, capacity to pay and sustainability of the CPSE.
iii) Government budgetary support would not be provided to operate these Schemes.
iv) It is to be ensured that by implementing the 2007 pay revision, which would include these two schemes, the dip in Profit Before Tax (PBT) for the year 2007-08 should not exceed 20% in respect of executives & non-unionized supervisors of CPSE.
v) Since the effective date of 2007 pay revision in CPSE is 01.01.2007, the proposed scheme(s) may be introduced w.e.f. 01.01.2007 or a subsequent date for the regular employees who were on the rolls of CPSE as on that date and for the employees recruited thereafter. If a regular employee does not want to contribute to the proposed scheme, he/she should have an option.
vi) Contribution of CPSE to these schemes is limited to such extent that the contribution to the total superannuation benefits which include PF and Gratuity also is limited to 30% of Basic pay plus DA. This may be reviewed every year based on the profitability/affordability of the CPSE. Contribution every year by CPSE should not be guaranteed for these two schemes.
vii) An employee should have put in a minimum of 15 years service rendered in continuity in CPSE(s) at the time of superannuation, and benefits would be allowed by a CPSE from where the incumbent has superannuated.
viii) The services rendered in thc Government prior to joining CPSE would not count for the purpose of computation of total service in a CPSE required for availing the benefits of this scheme.
ix) As regards Board level executives, who are contractual appointees, they too can enjoy the benefits under these schemes provided their total period of service rendered in continuity in CPSE(s) including the period at Board level in a CPSE is not less than 15 years, at the time of superannuation.
x) In the event of any employee resigning from the services of CPSE and joining another CPSE having broadly similar schemes, the entire amount of employer’s and employee’s contribution along with interest accrued thereon can be transferred to such CPSE. However, employees who resign from CPSE to join another CPSE, not having similar schemes, or any organization not being a CPSE (irrespective of whether such scheme exists in that organization), shall not be allowed the benefit o transferring their accumulated fund under these schemes. However, the employee’s contribution along with accrued interests shall be refundable to the employee.
xi) Benefits of the schemes should not be extended lo employees posted on deputation to CPSE from Central/State Government.
xii) In case a regular member of the scheme dies/becomes permanently disabled & incapacitated, leading to cessation of his/her service, before putting in 15 years of service in a CPSE prior to superannuation, he/she may be given the benefits as admissible under these schemes.
xiii) Cases of VRS/VSS for which specific scheme have been framed would be examined in terms of such specific schemes of VRS/VSS of the Government applicable in respect of employees of CPSEs. Benefits under these schemes would not accrue to VRS/VSS optees automatically.
xiv) At the time of superannuation, an employee may opt for Annuities from any of the designated Annuity Saving Service Providers to provide the pension and/or post retirai medical benefits.
xv) The admissibility of benefits under these schemes to the employees against whom disciplinary proceedings are pending at the time of superannuation is to be regulated as per the Conchict, Discipline & Appeal Rules of the CPSE.
xvi) In cases of resignation (excluding resignation covered under ‘technical formality clasue’) and compulsory retirement, removal, dismissal because of disciplinary proceedings. the annuity would be based only on member’s contributions, if any, and interest thereon.
xvii) DPE O.Ms. dated 08.07.2009 and 20.07.2011 relate to the creation of a Corpus for the CPSE employees who retired before 01.01.2007. There is, thus, no link between pension and post-superannuation medical benefit schemes and the corpus mentioned in OMs. dated 08.07.2009 and 20.07.2011.
xviii) These schemes will be under a “defined contribution scheme” and not under a “defined benefit scheme”. Subject to the Contribution made by the CPSE within the prescribed ceiling, and based on affordability, the benefit to the individual executive would be determined based on the accumulated amount.
xix) There should be no provision of ‘commutation’, since provision of pension in 2007 pay revision guidelines was introduced so that employees have a social security and would get a substantial monthly pension after superannuation.
