EPFO gives a week time for sending digital signatures


Dear All,

This is the Extract from  Business Standard

 
Employers from across the nation have begun sending their to the Employees Provident Fund, with Kochi firms leading others in sending the largest number of such signatures.

The signatures are needed to begin online transfer of provident fund and the signatures would be used for verification in the future.

has set a seven day deadline for all employers with more than 1,000 workers for sending digital signatures. This is part of an effort to put in place a system of online transfer of provident fund claim settlements.

The Chief Provident Fund Commissioner KK Jalan has written to all the 122 Provident fund offices in the country indicating timelines for implementing the online transfer scheme.

In a letter dated July 31, he said, "I would emphasise that all employers who have employees strength more than 1,000 should be asked to give their digital signatures within next seven days. It s not difficult to do so as all these employers in any case will have  their digital signatures for some other purposes."

Employers with an employee strength between 100 and 1,000 have been given more time.

The EPFO has set a target of covering 50% of thee employers by August 20.

PF offices also have been asked to introduce amended transfer claim forms in every region from August 20.

A campaign has already been launched to motivate employers to give their digital signatures. Once the transfers begin online, the time taken for the procedure of settlement of claims is expected to come down from the current 30 days to just three days.

The EPFO has so far received 675 digital signatures from various employers. The largest number of such signatures were received from employers in Kochi in kerala, officials said.

Taking the first step towards launching online PF transfer claims, EPFO had earlier this month unveiled a revised claim form for the purpose.

EPFO is likely to start the online PF transfer claim facility by the end of August. This would enable EPF subscribers to apply online to transfer their accounts through their new employers. The revised transfer claim form can be presented after verification by the present employer or the previous employer. Previously, the form could be submitted only after verification by the present employer.

MEDICLAIM POLICY : DEDUCTION UNDER SECTION 80D

MEDICLAIM POLICY : DEDUCTION UNDER SECTION 80D
 
A Mediclaim policy is one that refers to the medical insurance of individual, HUF, spouse, parents or dependent children, also known as health insurance .The section 80D of Income Tax Act provides for deduction of the payment made subject to the premiums of such medical policies. This exemption is over and above the deductions of Rs.1,00,000 under the section 80C. Medical insurance is vital in order to insure the health and safety of the family members, and it comes to aid in times of illness and makes up for your medical expenditure.
 
The medical premium varies with age, and as you grow older the premium increases.(Hence it is recommended that a senior citizen gets himself medically insured) The insurance can take place at any point of time between the age span of 18-59 yrs. As per the budget 2011-12, a senior citizen is a person of the age 60yrs or more. Before that, 65 yrs and more was considered as the age for senior citizens) the policy can be in the name of any of the following persons:
Individual or the taxpayer
 
Parents: Parents of the individual and of the spouse may be covered under this irrespective of their dependence on the assessee.
 
Dependent children: legitimate children or legally adopted children fall under this category and may be insured by the taxpayer. This includes male child who is unemployed, under the age of 25 yrs and he is a bonafide student fully dependent on the assessee . In case of a girl child, she is considered d as dependent until she is unmarried.
 
And in case of an HUF, any family member can be insured.
 
The total amount of deduction included under the section 80d mediclaim policies is Rs.35000. It is split into parts as shown below:
For an individual:
 
Basic deduction: The insurance premium of self, spouse and children is covered under this amount. Maximum deduction upto Rs.15000 is allowed .however, a deduction upto Rs.20000 is allowed in case the insured person is a senior citizen.
 
Additional deduction: Includes the medical premium paid for parents and a maximum deduction upto Rs.15000 is allowed. If the parent in this regard is a senior citizen then the amount is increased upto Rs.20000.
 
For HUF:
The premium can be paid for any member of HUF and the maximum deduction of Rs.15000 is permissible. Only when the person is a senior citizen the amount available for deduction is Rs.20000.
 
The medical premium is paid under medical insurance scheme of General Insurance Corporation approved by the Central Government or by any other insurer approved by IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority).. Before 1st April 2009, the only mode of payment allowed was cheque. The payments for such premiums can now be made via any mode other than cash
 
 

Tuition fees as a deduction under section 80C

Tuition fees as a deduction under section 80C
The section 80c provides deduction from the taxable income for the tuition fees paid for his/her children .The upper limit for the deduction under this section is Rs 1 lakh. Parents are allowed to claim the deduction for their children’s tuition fees. This deduction is strictly available only on the tuition fees paid and not the exam fee, sports fee, lab fee, admission fee or the hostel fee. A parent is individually allowed to claim deduction for two children , thus both the parents can together claim deduction for four children. The deduction claim is permissible for only full time courses and not part time, coaching classes, distance learning or private tuitions. This however includes tuition fees for playschools and pre-nursery. The deduction is available on the amount paid by the individual and the period for which the payment is made is not to be considered.

Benefit of Joint Home Loan and its Tax benefit

Benefit of Joint Home Loan and its Tax benefit
Buying a house has always been a bit of financial trouble for many. So, banks come to rescue and aid people with a home loan by facilitating the funding. Two earning members can come together to buy a house and share the loan. Joint home loan is the ultimate way out! Earning members of the family; Spouse, siblings, parent & child either can jointly issue a loan from the bank. This will ease off the burden of loan borrowing. Besides, there is an added major advantage to this joint loan borrowing; the co borrowers can share the tax benefits under the Income Tax Act.
Benefits of joint home loan
  • Two earning members will save a part of their income from taxation
  • The debt burden is minimized as there two people will share the loan
  • Both, Principle and interest payable are exempted from tax under the section 80C and section 24 respectively of the Income Tax Act.
Rules for seeking a joint home loan:
  • A joint home loan can be taken by minimum 2 and maximum 6 members
  • Not all family members are eligible to take joint home loan, generally blood relatives are allowed
  • The lender defines the relationship between co borrowers in order to be eligible to seek the joint loan
  • KYC documents should be submitted that contain identity and address proof of the loan applicants
  • Documents containing the proof of ownership and income proof of borrowers are also required.
Repayment of joint home loan:
  • Either the EMI can be paid via a joint account that is held by the co borrowers
  • Payment made by means of two different accounts for the same EMI is not allowed. However they can share total no. of installments. The payment should come from come from borrowers jointly.
The maximum tax benefit available to a single person who seeks home loan is however 1, 50,000 for each co borrower. Hence it is advisable to get a break up of tax benefits on stamp paper prior to issuing the loan. The agreement will specify the share of the ownership as well as that of the home loan. This agreement will contain the share of the ownership along with that of the home loan issued by them.
The co-borrowers must decide the ratio in which they will borrow the loan. Supposing the ratio decided is 60:40 then the tax benefits availed by them will be in the same ratio. The former can avail a 60% of tax benefit on the maximum permissible exempted limit; while the latter, 40%.
Now, it is way easier and beneficial to manage the funding for your new home by applying for loan. The income tax benefits, plus the lesser burden on a single person, in terms of loan repayment. Also, it enhances your eligibility as a loan seeker because the income of two people is clubbed; the bank finds it convenient to grant the loan.

Entry of new members under the EPF scheme will go on at the same pace, but plenty of the aspiring members might not have their aadhaar numbers. Aadhaar is basically  the unique identification number issued to the individuals for the purpose of establishing a sole identity of each. Those who have been lucky to get themselves enrolled have been awaiting their cards for quite a long. Whereas, the other workers or employees who may hail from, distant and remote areas where the idea of aadhaar has not even reached have been disadvantaged of the enrolment too. Thus leaving a large number of people deprived of their aadhaar numbers.
 Linking EPF with aadhaar card is a way of the government to push more and more people into enrolment for the UID (UNIQUE IDENTITY) cards. And the EPFO suggests the employers to contact UIDAI (UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION AUTHORITY OF INDIA) in order to lay down camps or centres nearby workplaces /industries/offices so that employees at work can easily start off with the process and avail of it at the earliest
 However, for those who do not have the cards can get an Enrolment ID (EID) as per the EPFO plan which can be later transformed into their aadhaar numbers
By June 30th,2013 the 50 million existing members must present their aadhaar numbers to the EPFO as aadhaar is now an essential Know Your Customer (KYC) credential. Besides, it will be of great help to the EPFO members and to those seeking benefits under the scheme will also be facilitated by providing your aadhaar number. All subscribers of EPFO, old or new must hurry, enroll and fetch their aadhaar card numbers.
