Sir, VICPC has done a great in justice to the Loco Running Staff of Indian Railways in regards to PB, GP i.e. Pay, grade pay and allowances to Loco Running Staff who in-fact maintaining the life line of the country in day and night, summer, rain and winter whether it was the area of terrorist influence or Maoists, Railway Administration always thinks that the responsibility of save operation of the trains only lies with the Loco Running Staff and Loco Running Staff are subjected to capital punishment in all most all the cases of accidents ignoring the system failure and failure of other concerned staff but while the matter comes of Pay and allowance and other benefits the Loco Running Staff are badly discriminated which have the cause of depression of Loco Running Staff. The Loco Running Staff seeing the treatment of Railway Management, discrimination and ignorance to their genuine demands, are now being compelled to think that whether it is mistake or Sin to join in service of Loco Running Staff.

No Filing of returns’ scheme for salaried class earning less than Rs. 5 Lakh to be notified by June, 2011

‘No return’ scheme for salaried class earning less than Rs. 5 Lakh to be notified by June .The Chairman of Central Board of Direct Taxes ( CBDT), Sudhir Chandra, today said the scheme to exempt salaried people earning up to Rs 5 lakh annually from filing income tax returns will be notified in the first week of June. The scheme was announced in the Union Budget 2011-12 by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee.

“A category of small salaried tax payers whose net salaried income is not above Rs 5 lakh and whose tax is deducted at source by the employer who files return, will be exempted from filing returns,” Chandra told reporters here.

“The scheme for this category will be notified in the first week of June,” he said. “But if the taxpayer is claiming a refund from the IT department, then he will have to file the return.” The scheme will provide relief to about 70 to 80 lakh people from filing IT returns.

“We are also trying to exempt small bank interest income, the tax on which has been deducted at source, under this scheme,” he said.

“A new facility has been introduced on filing of electronic returns. At the click of the mouse, a portal will open…on which you can view every month how much money your employer has deducted, and whether it has been deposited in the government kitty,” Chandra said.

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Zonal Unions,

Henry Gass

The opening of Belgium’s ‘Solar Tunnel’ railway project has raised questions about the use of solar for UK transport projects, says Henry Gass

Railway infrastructure is being used to generate green energy for the first time in Europe with the inauguration of the ‘Solar Tunnel’ in Belgium. 3.4 kilometres of tunnel roof near Antwerp, part of the high-speed line connecting Paris and Amsterdam, has been covered with 16,000 solar PV panels, an area of roughly 50,000m2 – equivalent to eight football pitches.

RUNNING ALLOWANCE.
Till recent years Running Allowance was a glamour of Running Staff. But today the condition is different. When DA raised to 51% w.e.f 01/01/2011, many of the allowances automatically raised by 25% as per accepted recommendation of 6th CPC and this includes Travelling Allowance also. Hence there are lot of expectations among the Running Staff to get enhanced rate of running allowance. But it is not applicable to running allowance as per existing orders. Thus it is imperative to look at the problem more deep and analyze various facts.
