Aadhaar not mandatory for availing LPG subsidy in bank account: Govt

Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | comments

The union government once again made it clear that Aadhaar number is not mandatory to avail LPG subsidy and the consumer can receive the subsidy in his bank account under MDBTL scheme

Contrary to the bombardment of advertisement from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the Aadhaar number is not mandatory to avail LPG subsidy. Dharmendra Pradhan, the minister of state for Petroleum and Natural Gas, informed the Lok Sabha that under the modified direct benefits transfer for LPG (MDBTL), consumers joining this scheme will get cylinders, subsidised as well as non- subsidised, at market price and subsidy amount as applicable for each domestic subsidised cylinder is transferred to their bank account. 
"If the LPG consumer does not have an Aadhaar number, he can directly receive subsidy in his bank account without the use of Aadhaar number. This option which has now been introduced in the modified scheme ensures that LPG subsidy is not denied to an LPG consumer on account of lack of Aadhaar number," he said. 
Last month, the Narendra Modi government re-launched its modified direct benefits transfer for LPG (MDBTL) scheme on pilot basis in 54 districts across the country. The main feature of this modified scheme is LPG consumers will be able to get subsidy directly in their bank accounts from 15th November even if they do not have Aadhaar numbers.
Pradhan said all LPG consumers have a grace period of three months from the date of launch of DBTL in the district, during which all those who have not yet joined the scheme would continue to get subsidised cylinders as per their entitlement. 
After the end of grace period, an additional parking period of three months is given to such consumers during which the subsidy entitlement will be parked and will be transferred to consumer's bank account on joining the scheme during this period.
The previous DBTL scheme launched by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government failed due to its linkage with Aadhaar numbers with bank accounts. Most people did not have either Aadhaar number or a bank account. Now with a push for opening bank accounts, the MDBTL has been linked to both, Aadhaar numbers and bank accounts.

Income Tax :- Advance Tax due on 15th December 2014

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 | comments

Friends,  15th Dec.2014 is very close to us. All income tax assessee should aware about payment of Advance Income Tax in time  to avoid interest and penalty charges due to Less or Non Payment of Advance Income Tax.  Specifically Senior Citizens who have not any business income are exempted for payment of Advance Income Tax.  Keeping in view various issues regarding Advance Tax , the following article helps the assessee to understand the complete Advance Income Tax matters.
If the Income Tax Liability of any taxpayer is more than Rs. 10,000 in a financial year, then he is liable to pay such tax in installments during the year itself rather than paying this tax at the end of the year. This tax which is payable during the year is called “Advance Tax” or “pay as you earn tax” as tax is liable to be paid at the time the income is earned i.e. during the year rather than paying this tax at the end of the year.
Advance Tax receipts help the Govt. to receive a constant flow of tax receipts throughout the year so that expenses can be incurred rather than receiving all tax payments at the end of the year. Advance Tax is liable to be paid by all assesses like Salaried, Self Employed, Businessman etc. before the filing of Income Tax Return
For Individuals with Salary as the sole source of income, Advance Tax would be taken care of by the TDS deducted by the employer at the time of payment of salaries as reflected in Form 16and thus there would hardly be any Advance Tax payable. Senior Citizens not having any Business Income are also exempted from the payment of Advance Tax (Introduced by Budget 2012)
For all taxpayers earning income from any source other than salary, Advance Tax is payable in installments as explained below.

Payment of Advance Tax

Advance Tax is liable to be paid as per the following schedule
In case of Assessees other than Companies
Due Date of InstallmentAmount Payable
On or before15th SepNot less than 30% of the Advance Tax Liability
On or before15th DecNot less than 60% of the Advance Tax Liability as reduced by the amount,if any, paid in earlier installment
On or before15th Mar100% of the Advance Tax Liability as reduced by the amount, if any, paid in earlier installments
In case of Companies
Due Date of InstallmentAmount Payable
On or before 15th JuneNot less than 15% of the Advance Tax Liability
On or before 15th SeptNot less than 45% of the Advance Tax Laibility as reduced by the amount, if any, paid in earlier installment
On or before 15th DecNot less than 75% of the Advance Tax Laibility as reduced by the amount, if any, paid in earlier installments
On or before 15th March100% of the Advance Tax Liability as reduced by the amount, if any, paid in earlier installments
Payment of Advance Income Tax is to be made through Challan No. 280 by selecting Advance Tax (100) as the type of payment as shown below:-

Computation of Advance Tax

Advance Tax is liable to be paid by estimating the current year income and then applying the tax rates as per the Income Tax Slabs in force. The Advance Tax shall be computed as under:
Income under the 5 Heads of Incomexxx
(Less)Brought Forward Losses and Allowancesxxx

(Less)TDS as shown in Form 16/Form 16A and reflected in Form 26ASxxx
(=)Advance Tax Liabilityxxx

Payment of Advance Tax in case of Capital Gains
Although Advance Tax is liable to be paid on all incomes including Capital Gains, it is practically not possible to estimate the Capital Gains which may arise in an year. Therefore, in such cases, it is provided that if any such income arises after the due date of any installment, then, the entire amount of tax payable on such capital gain (after claiming exemption under section 54) shall be paid in remaining installments of Capital Gains which are due. If the entire amount of tax payable is so paid, then no interest on late payment will be levied.

Interest on Late Payment of Advance Tax

If the Income Tax is not payable as per the above schedule, Interest is liable to be paid for late payment of tax as follows
  1. Interest under section 234C – Interest @ 1% per month is payable if the tax is not paid as per the above schedule i.e. for Deferment in Installments of Advance Tax
  2. Interest under section 234B – Interest @ 1% is payable if 90% of the tax is not paid before the end of the financial year i.e. for Default in Payment of Advance Tax
For computing Interest u/s 234A/B/C and any other Interest, Income Tax shall be rounded off to nearest hundred and fraction of hundred shall be ignored

Interest under section 234C for Deferment of Payment of Tax

Interest under section 234C is liable to be paid 1% per month if
(a)Advance Tax paid on or before 15th Sept    <    30% of the Tax Due on Returned Income
(b)Advance Tax paid on or before 15th Dec    <    60% of the Tax Due on Returned Income
(c)Advance Tax paid on or before 15th Mar    <    Tax Due on Returned Income
