Employer cannot force employees to open salary accounts with official bank: Kerala HC

An employer cannot insist that all employees open a salary account with its official banking firm, says the Kerala high court.
A single bench of the court issued the ruling after considering a petition (WP-C No. 37894/2016) filed by TM Dinesh Kumar and seven other employees of Malabar Cancer Centre (MCC) at Thalassery. They had challenged a circular issued by the governing body of Malabar Cancer Centre Society asking all employees to open salary accounts with its official banking partner, IDBI Bank.
 
The petitioners had accounts with State Bank of India (SBI) and didn't want to shift their accounts. Their petition said they haven't received salaries from August last year and were also deprived of festival allowances such as Onam Advance.
 
Ruling that denial of salary for not opening account with IDBI Bank is illegal, the court said in the judgment, "As far as the withdrawal of salary through a bank account is concerned, it will not be necessary that each of the employees should have the salary account with official bank itself. The official bank can very well transfer the salary of the petitioners to their accounts existing in SBI, on a request/standing instruction from the accounts wing of the 1st respondent (MCC). For such transfers, the 1st respondent need not compel the petitioners to open zero balance account or salary account with IDBI, in case they do not want to have any transaction with the IDBI."
 
Further, the court said the issue, which arose on the ground that no discussion was held with employees regarding the account change, could have been resolved at the end of MCC's governing body itself. The matter reached the high court as a result of the ego which played between the petitioners and those at the helm of affairs at MCC, the court criticized. The court ordered MCC to transfer the salaries and allowances, including arrears, of the petitioners to their accounts with SBI without any further delay.

Latest Rules On Provident Fund Withdrawal You Should Know: 10 Facts



According to provident fund norms, 12 per cent of an employee’s salary goes into the fund along with a matching contribution from the employer.

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has been taking many steps to ease the process of provident fund (PF) money withdrawal. The PF money can be withdrawn after two months from the cessation of employment. The application form can be filed with the PF authorities or through the employer. PF is meant for saving towards retirement years. Financial planners advise not to withdraw from the corpus before retirement. According to provident fund norms, 12 per cent of an employee’s salary goes into the fund along with a matching contribution from the employer. The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation every year announces interest rate to be paid on the accumulated provident fund corpus.

Here are 10 things to know:

1) To encourage long-term savings, the government has formulated tax laws accordingly. If the withdrawal from a recognised PF happens after five years of continuous employment, it attracts no tax liability. In case of employment with different employers, if the PF balance maintained with the old employer is transferred to the PF account of the new employer, it is considered a continuous employment.

2) If an employee has been terminated because of certain reasons beyond his or her control (such as ill health and discontinuation of business of employer), the withdrawal does not attract any tax, irrespective of the number of years of employment.

3) In case of a withdrawal before five years, the amount becomes taxable in the same financial year. Thus, the amount has to be shown in your tax return for the next assessment year. The employer’s contribution to PF and interest earned on it is added to one’s income and taxed accordingly.

4) In addition, if you have claimed benefits under Section 80C on your own PF contribution, it will be taxed as salary. The interest earned on your own contribution will be taxed as ‘income from other sources’ and taxed according to the respective tax slabs.

5) TDS (tax deducted at source) – If the withdrawal is after a period of five years of continuous employment, it attracts no TDS or any tax. What happens if the period of service is less than five years? If PAN has not been submitted to the EPFO authorities, TDS is deducted at 30 per cent. If PAN has been submitted along with Form 15G/15H, no TDS is deducted. If form 15G/15H is not submitted and PAN is submitted, TDS @ 10% is deducted. Form 15H or 15G is meant to prevent TDS for those whose income falls below the taxable limit.

6) The funds transferred from a recognised provident fund (PF) account to a National Pension System (NPS) account will not attract any tax, Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) said in a circular dated March 6. “The amount so transferred from recognised Provident Fund/Superannuation Fund to NPS is not treated as income of the current year and hence not taxable,” the pension fund regulator said.

7) The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation has come out with a single-page form for provident fund related claims – from provident/pension fund withdrawal to the advance facility.

8) In addition, an Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation or EPFO subscribers can submit the new one-page form directly to the retirement fund body without the employer’s attestation if their accounts are seeded with Aadhaar and bank account details.

9) For subscribers who are yet to seed Aadhaar and bank details, a new composite claim form has been introduced which has to be submitted with attestation of employers for any claims.

10) Also, no other document would be required to be submitted by the subscriber for taking advances from the provident fund corpus. A provident fund subscriber can go for partial withdrawal/advance from his or her corpus for specific purposes like purchase of flat, construction.

Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Bill, 2016 passed in the Parliament


The Lok Sabha has passed the Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Bill, 2016 today. The Bill had already been passed by the Rajya Sabha during the Winter Session. With this, the Bill stands passed in the Parliament. 



The Bill seeks to amend the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 to provide for the following:- 
  • (i) Maternity leave available to the working women to be increased from 12 weeks to 26 weeks for the first two children. 
  • (ii) Maternity leave for children beyond the first two will continue to be 12 weeks. 
  • (iii) Maternity leave of 12 weeks to be available to mothers adopting a child below the age of three months as well as to the “commissioning mothers”. The commissioning mother has been defined as biological mother who uses her egg to create an embryo planted in any other woman. 
  • (iv) Every establishment with more than 50 employees to provide for crΓ¨che facilities for working mothers and such mothers will be permitted to make four visits during working hours to look after and feed the child in the crΓ¨che. 
  • (v) The employer may permit a woman to work from home if it is possible to do so. 
  • (vi) Every establishment will be required to make these benefits available to the women from the time of her appointment. 
The Minister of Women and Child Development, Smt. Maneka Gandhi thanked the Minister for Labour and Employment, Shri Bandaru Dattatreya for taking up the demand of lakhs of women across the country and for having steered the Bill through Rajya Sabha as well as the Lok Sabha. In her message to the working women, Smt. Gandhi congratulated the women who are planning to have a child and has stated that the Ministry of Women and Child Development will continue to work for the empowerment of women. 



The amendments in the Bill were taken up following the request by the WCD Minister to the Hon’ble Labour Minister to bring about these changes so that a working woman gets time to exclusively breast-feed her child for 6 months after the birth. This period also enables the working mother to recuperate herself before she goes to back to work. In her communication to the Labour Ministry, the WCD Minister had also highlighted the concerns of commissioning and adopting mothers who also require maternity leave.
