Filing of Income Tax Returns by Government Employees

Income Tax : Filing of Returns by every Government Servant

P.N.DEVADASAN, IRS
Principal Commissioner

To
The Drawing & Disbursing Officer
O/O Dy. Director of IT(INV) Unit III
139, IOC Bhavan I Floor IOC Bhavan, Nungambakkam High Road, Nungambakkam, Chennai – 600034

Dear Sir/Madam,

Sub: Filing of Returns by every Government Servant – Reg.

As you might be aware, every person who is having income more than Rs.2,50,000 is bound to file his/her return of income. This includes the Government Servants also. However, the data of returns filed indicate that more than 50% of the Government Servants at Chennai are not filling their income tax returns. I hope, you will agree that as government servants, we should abide by laws and to be role models to the common citizens of our country. If we, Government servants ourselves are violating law by not filling our income tax returns, we don’t have any moral right to blame other sections of society.

From this year i.e Assessment Year 2018-19 onwards, the Parliament has amended the Income Tax Act by introducing a new section 234F for imposing late fee on every person who is not filling his/her return of income within the due date. For salaried employees, the due date is 31-07-2018. This means all the salaried employees have to file their returns of income for the Financial Year 2017-18 (Assessment Year 2018-19) on or before 31-07-2018. Otherwise they all mandatorily have to pay late fee amounting between Rs.1,000 to Rs.10,000 as per the provisions of Section 234 . Also, a penalty of Rs.5,000 can be imposed under section 271F on them. In addition to this, they can be prosecuted under section 276CC of the Income Tax Act for jail termsvarying between three months to seven years.

It may please be noted that these provisions are applicable to all the persons having gross income (excluding deductions) above Rs.2,50,000/-. It is understood that many persons who are claiming deductions under section 80C etc. (on GPF contribution, Life Insurance Policies, Housing Loan Repayment etc.) and adjustment of Interest on Housing Loan are under the impression that they need not file the return as their net income is below taxable limit and no TDS is deducted from their salary.

Therefore, I request you to kindly intimate and advice all the employees to whom the gross salary paid in the last year is more than Rs.2,50,000 to file their returns of income before 31-07-2018. It may also be noted that all the incomes earned by an employee such as rental income (including subletting of house/s), interest incomes, dividend from Co-operative societies and all such incomes should be declared in their returns of income. Later, if found to have omitted any such incomes, they are liable for separate penalty and prosecution for concealing those incomes.

A copy of this letter may be handed over to each of your employees who draw their salary through you. You may also discuss this issue with the Head of your Office/Department and request him/her to issue a circular to all the employees to file their return of income well in time.

In case of any clarification or suggestions, you may please contact the following Officers: Joint Commissioner Smt. Sumathy Venkataraman (8762300298), Assistant Commissioner Ms. N. Abhinaya (8939744880), Smt. Priya Ramakrishnan, ITO (9445954906), Shri Sundaramurthy, ITO (9445955554), Smt. Malarvizhy Kujur ITO (9962383336) or Shri V. Baladandayutham, ITO (9445954896).

Yours faithfully,

No.1(27)/2017-D(Pay/Services)
Government of India
Ministry of Defence

Sena Bhawan, New Delhi
Dated, the 2nd July, 2018

Office Memorandum

Subject: Modification of Level-12A and 13 of Defence Pay Matrix – Issues regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to the Pay Matrix contained in Part A of the Schedule of the Army Officers Pay Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay Regulations, 2017 as promulgated vide SRO Nos. 12(E), 13(E) and 14(E) respectively dated 03rd May, 2017, where the Level-12A starts at Rs.1,16,700 at Cell one and ends at Rs.2,10,700 at Cell twenty one and Level-13 of the Pay Matrix starts at Rs.125,700 at Cell one and ends at Rs.2,14,000 at Cell nineteen and to state that in terms of Army Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017 promulgated vide SRO Nos.17(E), 18(E) and 19(E) respectively dated 06th July, 2017, the said Levels 12A and 13 of the Pay Matrix have been modified. The modified Level 12A starts at Rs.1,21,200 at Cell one and ends at Rs.2,12,400 at Cell twenty. The modified Level 13 starts at Rs.1,30,600 at Cell one and ends at Rs.2,15,900 at Cell eighteen.

2. The modified Levels 12A and 13 in terms of the Army Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017 take effect from 1st January, 2016. Accordingly, the earlier Levels 12A and 13 of the Pay Matrix as contained in Army Officers Pay Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay Regulations, 2017 notified on 03.05.2017 and effective from 1st January, 2016 have become non-existent ab-initio with the promulgation of the Army Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017. The modified Levels 12A and 13 are an improvement on the earlier Levels 12A and 13 in as much as the earlier Levels 12 and 13 are based on the ‘Index of Rationalisation’ (IOR) of 2.57, whereas the modified Levels 12A and 13 are based on the IOR of 2.67. It is for this reason of improvement that the modified Level 12A begins at Rs. 1,21,200 and Level 13 begins at Rs. 1,30,600, as against the earlier Levels 12A and 13 which began at Rs 1,16,700 and Rs. 125,700 respectively.

3. Consequent upon the aforesaid modification of Level-12A and Level 13 in terms of the Army Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017 effective from 01.01.2016, pay in respect of those who are entitled to Level-12A or Level-13 either from 01.01.2016 or from any date later than 01.01.2016, shall be re-fixed by the fitment factor of 2.57 as contained in Rule 7(1)(i) of Army Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Air Force Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Regulation 7(1)(i) of Navy Officers Pay Regulations, 2017 in the aforesaid respective modified Levels 12-A or 13 in supersession of the earlier pay fixation. The formula for fixation of pay based on the fitment factor of 2.57, as contained in the ibid Pay Rules/Pay Regulations, 2017 has not been modified by the aforesaid Pay (Amendment) Rules. The fitment factor of 2.57 is uniformly applicable for all employees for the purpose of fixation of pay in all the Levels of Pay Matrix. Some issues regarding re-fixation of pay and the decisions thereon are brought in the succeeding paragraphs for compliance.

Issue No. 1 – Whether pay in the Level-12A and 13 is to be fixed by multiplying by a factor of 2.57 or 2.67

4. Pay in the Levels-12A and 13 of the Pay Matrix, as provided for in the Army Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017, shall continue to be fixed based on the fitment factor of 2.57 as already provided for in Rule 7(1) (i) of Army Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Air Force Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Regulation 7(1) (i) of Navy Officers Pay Regulations, 2017. In case pay has been fixed in the modified Levels-12A and 13 by way of fitment factor of 2.67, the same is contrary to the Rules and is liable to be rectified and excess amount recovered forthwith. For more clarification, Issue no.1 mentioned in Ministry of Finance OM No. 4-6/2017-IC/E-III(A) dated 28.09.2017 may be referred to.

Issue No. 2 Pay re-fixed in the modified Level-12A and 13 working out lower than the pay fixed in the earlier Level-12A and 13

5. Pay in respect of those, who are entitled to Levels 12A or 13 either from 1.1.2016 or from any date later than 1.1.2016, has to be re-fixed in the modified Level 12A or 13 and the pay as earlier fixed in the earlier Level 12A or 13 gets automatically rescinded. Therefore, pay, as fixed in the modified Level 12A or 13 in terms of Rule 7 of Army Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Air Force Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Regulation 7 of Navy Officers Pay Regulations, 2017 in case of those who were drawing pay in the pre-revised pay structure in PB-4 plus Grade Pay of Rs.8000 or Rs. 8700 as the case may be, as on 31.12.2015 or in terms of Rule/Regulation 12 thereof in case of those promoted to Levels 12A and 13 on or after 1.1.2016, shall now be the pay for all purposes.

6. It has been decided that if the pay re-fixed strictly as per Rule/Regulation 7 or Rule/Regulation 12, as the case may be, of the Army Officers Pay Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay Regulations, 2017 in the Levels-12A and 13 based on the Pay Matrix contained in the Army Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017 (as per the fitment factor of 2.57) happens to be lower than the pay as earlier fixed as per the said Rules (fitment factor of 2.57) in the earlier Levels-12A and 13, then while the pay as re-fixed shall be the pay as applicable to the concerned employee for all purposes, any recovery of over payment on account of such re-fixation during the period up to 31.7.2017, the month in which the Army Pay Officers (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017 have been issued, shall be waived. For more clarification, Issue no. 2 mentioned in Ministry of Finance OM No. 4-6/2017-IC/E-III(A) dated 28.09.2017 may be referred to.

Issue No. 3 – Re-exercise of option for coming over to the Revised Pay structure in case of Level 12A and 13

7. It has been decided that since the modification of the Levels 12A and 13 as per Army Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay (Amendment) Regulations, 2017 is a material change, the employees, who were entitled to Level 12A or 13 as on 1.1.2016 and who had already opted for the earlier Level 12A or 13 as per Rules 5 and 6 of the Army Officers Pay Rules, 2017; Air Force Officers Pay Rules, 2017 and Navy Officers Pay Regulations, 2017, shall be given an opportunity for re-exercise of their option there under. Such an option may be exercised within three months from the date of issue of these orders.
