If the reasons adduced for refusal of promotion are acceptable to the appointing authority, the next person in the select list may be promoted. However, since it may not administratively possible or desirable to offer appointment to the persons who initially refused promotion, on every occasion on which a vacancy arises, during the period of validity of the panel, no fresh offer of appointment on promotion shall be made in such cases for a period of one year from the date of refusal of first promotion or till a next vacancy arises whichever is later. On the eventual promotion to the higher grade, such Government servant will lose seniority vis-a-vis his juniors promoted to the higher grade earlier irrespective of the fact whether the posts in question are filled by selection or otherwise.

EPFO: Workers should be given a choice to move to NPS

EPFO: Workers should be given a choice to move to NPS

The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) should not waste any more time in putting its house in order. Two PF offices have now been slapped with an income- tax demand for failing to tax premature withdrawals by account-holders. The move could saddle the ailing EPFO with extra liabilities of over 7,000 crore.

This is bad news for the fund that is already in a mess with its poor track record of managing savings of employees efficiently. The EPFO wants to challenge the tax demand, saying retirement savings of employees are not taxable under the EPF Act. Sure, it has the right to move court over differences with the tax department. The income-tax rules for recognised provident funds (RPF) allow a tax break on withdrawals, but with three riders. One, the employee has to serve an organisation continuously for five years. Two, an employee’s services are terminated before five years for reasons beyond her control.

Three, when the accumulated balance in the employees account is transferred to any other RPF. Logically, therefore, premature withdrawals of an employee will be taxed if these conditions are not met. The tax dispute only compounds EPFO’s woes and a speedy resolution is a must. Fundamental reforms are needed to change the way the fund manages its corpus of 1,72,000 crore. The EPFO must improve record-keeping, accounting and diversify asset classes to maximise returns for workers.

Today, the EPFO has no system to track account-holders who have switched jobs. Its archaic records thwart seamless portability. This has hindered the I-T department from making a scientific assessment of premature EPFO payouts. It has assumed half the total EPFO payouts to people falls in the premature withdrawal category.

This is unscientific, but the blame lies with the EPFO. The New Pension System (NPS) that manages pensions of civil servants who joined on or after 2004, and of people who volunteer their savings, offers seamless portability with restrictions on withdrawals. Workers should be given the choice to move to the NPS that has the institutional framework to generate superior returns.

Scholarship schemes for minority students to be on-line

Scholarship schemes for minority students to be on-line

The Government has decided to launch an 'On-line Scholarship Management System' next week to ensure greater transparency in the implementation of its plans for upliftment of students from minority communities.

The Minority Affairs Ministry headed by Salman Khurshid will also start video conferencing with the states for better implementation of the Multi-sectoral Development Plans (MsDP) in the 90 minority concentrated districts of the country, which lag behind in the national parameters of development.

The On-line Scholarship Management System (OSMS) will deal with scholarship schemes for pre-matric and post-matric students from minority communities aspiring for technical and professional education.

An official launch is expected on April 14-15, ministry sources said.

The ministry has exceeded its targets in both pre-matric and post-matric schemes, they said.

In the pre-matric scholarship scheme, more than 37 lakh scholarships were provided against the target of 20 lakh scholarships last year.

The financial target for the scheme, which was pegged at Rs 450 crore, was increased to Rs 600 crore this year.

In the post-matric scholarship scheme, the ministry had a target of providing 4 lakh scholarships, but distributed scholarships to over 5 lakh students.

The allocation was also increased to Rs 450 crore from last year's Rs 250 crore.

The sources said the plan for video conferencing aims to ensure effective monitoring of the implementation of MsDP in districts with concentration of people from minorities as a number of states have been eager to inform the Centre of the actual position of the schemes in such areas.

Video-conferencing will ensure that the Central government can more frequently and directly interact with state authorities and achieve better results, they added.

Ministry officials had held a detailed meeting with minority secretaries of various states and union territories in Delhi a few days back, informing them about the need for better implementation of MsDP.

The meeting had taken an overview of financial performance of MsDP with a focus on financial year 2011-12, which is the last year for implementation of MsDP in the Twelfth Plan.

In the meeting the ministry had also asked the states to pay special attention to the implementation of the OSMS, also asking them to send their district plans by April end so that all plans could be approved by mid May.
