ncome Tax Exemption 5 lakhs to Pensioners – Clarification “Exemption of Rs. 5 lakhs per annum to pension income”

D.O.No.370150/9/2017-TPL MINISTER OF STATE FOR FINANCE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA NEW DELHI – 110001
 14th November, 2017
Dear Dr. Tharoor ji,

Kindly refer to your D.O.letter No. DO/ST/09/2017/986 dated 26.09.2017 requesting for providing exemption of Rs. 5 lakhs per annum to pension income.

I have got the matter examined. Currently, the basic exemption limit for individual tax payer is Rs. 2,50,000. However, considering the specific needs of the senior citizens, the basic exemption limit for a senior citizen above 60 years is fixed at Rs.3,00,000 and for very senior citizen i.e. above 80 years, the same is fixed at Rs. 5,00,000.

Therefore a pensioner who is a senior citizen is not required to pay any income-tax if his total income, including pension, does not exceed Rs. 3 lakhs. Similarly, a pensioner who is very senior citizen is not required to pay tax if his total income, including pension, does not exceed Rs. 5,00,000. 

However, the suggestion that pension up to Rs. 5 lakhs per annum should be exempt in all cases would require amendment to the existing provisions of the Income-tax Act, 1961.

Accordingly, the proposal would be examined during the exercise for the ensuing Union Budget, 2018 and the outcome would be reflected in the Finance Bill, 2018.

With regards, 
Yours sincerely,
(Shiv Pratap Shukla)

All members who attended the meeting unanimously decided to meet under the leadership of Lt Gen Balbir Singh Yadav and it was communicated by him that all Ex Servicemen Association are an apolitical organisations and do not have any affiliation with any Political Party. All Ex Servicemen have full faith in the Govt of the day and have allegiance to the Govt of India. 

Hon’ble Raksha Mantri expressed deep satisfaction on this communication by the ESM. Certain other points pertaining to ESM welfare were also brought to her notice. To name a few,  

 a) Point regarding Judgements pronounced by the Hon’ble Supreme Court should be made universally applicable to similarly placed persons as it would benefit the ESM living in the remote areas as neither they can afford the cost of litigation nor can they get to know the benefits accrued. 

b) Col Handa brought out few points about the disabled persons and their problems. 

c) It was also brought out by Lt Gen Balbir Singh Yadav that a structured meeting should be held with the ESM at regular interval to which Col Handa mentioned that there is an existing order of 2015 regarding holding regular interaction with ESM. 

Hon’ble Raksha Mantri immediately announced that first meeting in the series would be held in Jan 2018 and the Hon’ble MoS for Def would Chair the meeting.

Hon’ble RM also mentioned that she was fully seized with the Justice Reddy OMJC report and has had two presentations on the report. She has to further obtain more clarity on the points which Justice Reddy has added in the report beyond the points which were given to him as terms of reference. She would be able finally come out with the announcement after some more time.

It was also brought out by her that she is also fully concerned about the Rank equation with the civilians and she informed that she had just finished a meeting with the 3 Service Chiefs on the subject. 

She opined that the Rank earned by the Service Personnel cannot have any equation and it is totally incorrect to equate any rank with any designation or appointment of the civilians, she announced that MoD would be shortly issuing a letter on the subject.

In the end a vote thanks was communicated for granting audience to the ESM associations at a short notice and thereafter the meeting ended.

Have A Wonderful Day.

Fond regards,

Brig SKS Rana, VSM

Important decision for ranks other than Commissioned Officers who retired between 01-01-2006 and 30-08-2008

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Important decision for ranks other than Commissioned Officers who retired between 01-01-2006 and 30-08-2008

The Sixth Central Pay Commission had recommended the implementation of the ‘Modified Assured Career Progression’ Scheme (MACP) providing for the grant of three financial upgradations of pay at the gap of 8, 16 and 24 years of service in case of stagnation. Unlike other pay related modalities which were implemented with effect from 01 January 2006, the MACP was implemented with effect from 01 September 2008, thereby not including in its scope the personnel who were released from service between the two dates.

The Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT) had however ruled that the pay commission had granted all pay and pension related benefits from January 2006 and the prospective implementation was only effectuated for ‘allowances’ and hence the MACP was also to be implemented from January 2006 since it pertained to upgradation of pay. While ordering so, the AFT had followed the decision of the Punjab & Haryana High Court which had earlier ruled upon the implementation of improved pay-scales of defence personnel from 1996 rather than 1997 in an anomaly emanating out of the Fifth Pay Commission. The decision of the AFT was challenged by the Government in the Supreme Court but the Apex Court has dismissed the appeal filed by the Union of India thereby upholding the grant of MACP from 01 January 2006 rather than 01 September 2009.

This will affect the pay and pensionary benefits of those personnel who retired during the said period.
