Salaried taxpayers may be spared filing returns

Salaried taxpayers with no other income could get a respite from filing tax returns. The income-tax (I-T) department is open to examining a proposal to exempt them from the annual chore.

Asked whether the department would think about doing away with income-tax returns for employees, who had no other income apart from salaries in a financial year, Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Chairman Sudhir Chandra said the department would certainly consider the proposal.

He agreed that for a substantial chunk of salaried employees, savings bank interest is the only additional income and that in most cases, this not substantial. This proposal, if approved, will benefit a large section of people and would reduce the I-T department's workload in a big way.

Of the country’s 35 million taxpayers, roughly half are salaried employees.

The proposal to do away with returns for salaried taxpayers was earlier internally mooted within CBDT a few years ago. The argument in favour of the proposal was that income records for this class of taxpayer were available with both employers and banks.

Enter PIN for every ATM Transaction

In order to check misuse of ATM cards by unauthorised people, RBI has asked banks to allow only one transaction at ATM machines for one entry of PIN. Previously, customers were allowed to conduct multiple transactions through the ATM by punching in their PIN only once in a single session.
However, the practice was vulnerable to misuse by unauthorised people, especially in case authorised customers forgot to collect their ATM card after conducting the transaction.There have also been cases when some people tamper with the ATM machines in a way that a customer cannot collect the ATM card after conducting the transaction. Once the customer moves out of the ATM machine thinking that the withheld card needed to be collected from the bank, the fraudster goes into the ATM and withdraws money as previous session remains active with the PIN already punched in.
Having received several complaints about the vulnerabilities of the existing practice, RBI has asked the banks to make changes in their systems to allow only one transaction for every entry of the PIN.RBI had asked all banks to follow these guidelines with effect from January 1, 2011.
