PC to allow home ministry employees flexi-hours

with 2 comments


Home Minister P. Chidambaram will soon introduce flexi-hours for employees in his ministry. Attendance norms will be relaxed, so long as employees put in 40 hours a week.

Under the new norms, officials stuck in Delhi’s peak hour traffic jams will be excused if they are late by 30 minutes. Occassionally, they can also cite social obligations or doctor consultation and come late by two hours or leave two hours early.

But they will have to make up for the lost time, preferably on the same day and in any case, in the same week.

“The duration of late coming/early departure is to be compensated by devoting such extra hours of work so as to ensure the 40-hour work schedule for the entire week is maintained,” Home Secretary G.K. Pillai said.

The fresh instructions were issued on representations from home ministry officials who met him last week. They are understood to have pointed out the practical problems faced by staff members due to the biometric attendance system installed last September.

Central government offices have a 9 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. schedule with an half-an-hour lunch break in between.

“We had pointed if an official had to take a family member to the doctor, there was no way he, or she, could reach by 9 p.m. since CGHS dispensaries open at 7.30 a.m,” an home ministry official familiar with the representation said.

Refund of income tax by April assured

Refund of income tax by April assured

Refund of income-tax to assesses for the period ending 2008-09 will be effected by April, said R. K. Kakkar, Commissioner of Income-Tax, Tiruchi.

Speaking at a meeting on ‘Analysis of Union Budget 2010’ organised by Confederation of Indian Industries, Tiruchi Zone, here on Wednesday, Mr. Kakkar said that the Income-Tax Department has made all arrangements for refund of income-tax due till 2008-09. Any assesses not getting the refund due by the end of April, could contact him or his office for immediate action, he said.

On the budget proposals for 2010-11, Mr. Kakkar said that the widening of the tax slab would benefit the salaried persons in a big way. It also encouraged savings through investment on long-term infrastructure bonds. Promotion of research and development would enhance competitiveness of our country’s economy in the global scenario, he added.

S. Jaikumar, an advocate, said that the introduction of service taxes would evoke a mixed result. While the tax plan on cultural or commercial events, involving huge sum of money for the organisers or sponsors, would bring adequate revenue, the proposed tax on domestic air travel would cripple the domestic air services which were already incurring losses.

G. Rajendran, Superintendent of Customs, said that the Tiruchi air-port should be developed into a full-fledged air-cargo complex with additional infrastructure.

P. Kalaiazhagan and V. Sathiyanarayanan, both Superintendents of Central Excise and Leo Ananth J., Chairman of Confederation of Indian Industries, Tiruchi Zone, spoke.

        i)      Industrial employees will be entitled to half-day's casual leave, at par with other Central Government employees/non-industrial employees subject to the ceiling prescribed by the Government on the manner of casual leave in a year.
