PAY YOUR INCOME TAX? What an idea, sir jee!

PAY YOUR INCOME TAX? What an idea, sir jee!



Amarinder Singh comes up with revolutionary idea to save your money

Chandigarh, February 5: Punjab's Amarinder Singh government has got a brand new idea, and many are finding it refreshingly wonderful. The only problem is that so far, it is just an idea.

Here's the big idea: All MLAs, including ministers, should pay their own income tax.

You know who has been paying their income tax so far? You. Who else?

Welcome to the governmental arrangement about ensuring timely and regular income tax payments of your elected legislators all these years -- all such payments have been always made from the public exchequer.

Rest of the people of Punjab are expected to pay their own income tax. The MLAs' tax is paid by the people. It was an arrangement under earlier regimes of Captain Amarinder Singh as well as Prakash Singh Badal. And even now, the CM has merely floated an idea.

Also, the idea has not been floated on the basis of any principle. Perish such a wayward thought. Captain Amarinder Singh has got this brainwave only on account of "the severe financial constraints faced by the government."

"Currently being paid by the government, these taxes are draining the exchequer of the much needed funds," the Chief Minister is said to have pointed out.

So, citizens were officially informed about a brand new method of tax payment, termed in the official statement as "proposal for self-payment of taxes by all elected representatives, including himself."

So far, every farmer who has been buying Colgate tooth paste or dant-manjan had been paying even the income tax of Maharaja Amarinder Singh.
-----------
At least three MLAs that Punjab Today spoke to, including two from Congress and one from the Akali Dal, said the government proposal will effectively mean a huge wage cut. In such a circumstance, they suggested that the government will have to come up with a proposal to raise their salaries to undo the huge loss the chief ministerial idea can result to their bottomline.
-----------
But Punjabis can feel proud of this subaltern turn in their world view of taxes. Here is the brilliant press release writer of the Punjab government, tom-tomming it for the benefit of anyone who wants to cheer the move: "Punjab was possibly the only state in the country to follow the system of the government paying taxes for all ministers and MLAs."

The income tax paid by the Punjab government on this account stood at Rs. 11.08 crore, the CM said. Instead of Punjab government, please read Punjab's people. 

Of this loot (it's the most polite word the Punjab Today desk could supply), Rs 10.72 crore was going towards payment of income tax of MLAs, while the remaining was for the ministers.

The CM's proposal came at the meeting of the Cabinet Sub-Committee on Fiscal Management.

The suggestion, if implemented, would lead to a saving of this entire amount, which the state could then use for various important development works and implementation of welfare schemes, many of which are facing serious hurdles due to paucity of funds.

Amarinder Singh's earlier pleas to his Congress colleagues and rich farmers to give up free power subsidy did not result in any takers. He reiterated the same appeal once again. 
 
None of the prominent ministers, advisors or bureaucrats in the meeting rushed to embrace his appeal or declared they will ensure their rich friends will do the needful.

ACTUALLY PURCHASED THE LAND AT DOUBLE THE DC RATE
No conflict of interest in Mohali land deal: CM Amarinder

No conflict of interest in Mohali land deal: CM Amarinder



CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has categorically rejected any violation of the rules or conflict of interest in his Mohali land deal, accusing the opposition of unnecessarily creating a controversy to promote their vested political interests.

Is the Chief Minister not allowed to purchase land, asked Amarinder, hitting out at those who were trying to befool the people with baseless allegations of conflict of interest.

In fact, he had paid higher than the DC rate to purchase the land in question since the owner was not willing to sell the said plot, located in Siswan in Mohali, said the Chief Minister. Against the DC rate of Rs 30 lakh, he had actually paid double the amount - at about Rs 60 lakh per acre, Captain Amarinder told some mediapersons in an informal chat.

Asserting that his land had nothing to do with PLPA, the Chief Minister said he planned to construct a small farmhouse there since he did not have a house in Chandigarh, besides planting 32 varieties of fruit trees.

However, the Chief Minister clarified, that he had no intention of using the forest land, locked by the PLPA. The two khasras covered by the Act will be left as they are, without even fencing of any sort, he added. The remaining had been denotified way back in 2011 by the previous government.

In fact, Amarinder revealed, he already owned 15 acres in Majri village, which he had purchased about 25 years ago. That piece of land was subject to restrictions under PLPA and continued to remain so, he added.

He declared that he would abide by all rules and regulations, as required, for any construction on the Siswan Village land purchased recently.

In response to a question, the Chief Minister said the budget session would be convened in the second week of March. To another question, he said as many as 1.50 lakh jobs would be given at the next Job Mela, scheduled early March.

SCHOOL WAS ESTABLISHED BY MAHARAJA YADAVINDRA SINGH IN 1948

Captain Amarinder joins platinum jubilee celebrations at YPS Patiala



PATIALA: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday joined the faculty, students and the distinguished alumni of the Yadavindra Public School (YPS) here to celebrate the institution’s Platinum Jubilee in a spirit of festivity, marked by a colourful cultural extravaganza.

The Chief Minister was welcomed at his old school, which was established by his father Maharaja Yadavindra Singh, by cheering students. He was accompanied by his wife Preneet Kaur and former Union Minister Dr Karan Singh, also alumni of the school.

Speaking on the occasion, Captain Amarinder’s brother, Malwinder Singh, the Chairman and Member of the school’s Board of Governors, described the institution’s establishment as the taking of wings of his great father’s vision. Recalling that the school was envisioned by his father in the difficult times of the partition, he pointed out that one of its oldest students, Justice SS Sodhi, who passed out in 1949, had attended the celebrations on Thursday.

Though the school had come far in the past 70 years, and was today ranked among the best, it would continue to strive for more progress and excellence, he said. Besides strengthening of the school’s infrastructure, new forays were being into the sporting field, he said, exhorting the students to imbibe the values that the institution wanted them to inculcate and continue to give their best.

Former Union Minister Dr Karan Singh, also an alumni of the school, paid rich tributes to Maharaja Yadavindra, describing him as a great visionary and an unforgettable personality. Underlining the remarkable strengths of the institution, he lauded its multiple achievements, and stressed the importance of education in liberating young minds from ignorance, fundamentalism and arrogance.
 
Dr Karan Singh exhorted the students, whom he termed as the makers of the new India, to build their bodies and minds, using the tsunami of knowledge they were receiving, to build the India of their dreams. Stressing the importance of constant dialogue, he told them never to be afraid to ask questions, and to build their social skills through team work, which alone could help them accomplish their tasks.

Citing some of the challenges being faced by Public schools, particularly rallying and bullying of juniors, which he said was a sign of weakness rather than of strength, the minister called upon the students to use their educational opportunities to build a strong character. He also stressed the need to inculcate a sense of discipline and punctuality, and to recognize the importance of their fundamental duties.

In a reference to the growing intolerance in the society, Dr Karan Singh warned the students against falling prey to fundamentalism, pointing out that whichever religion had plunged into fundamentalism had ended up in destruction.

Brigadier (Retd) Sukhjit Singh and Mahavir Chakra awardee, a scion of the erstwhile Kapurthala estate, lauded YPS role in producing gems in various fields, while urging the students to adopt the art of learning to help them lead a purposeful life.

The school’s Director, Major General (Retd) Sanjiv Varma, read the annual report, highlighting the institution's significant achievements in the field of academics, sports and extra-curricular activities.

Earlier, the students of the school presented a colourful variety programme, including Giddha, Bhangra, music concert and group dance, besides an excellent rendition of the school song, enthralling the audience with their scintillating performance.
Later, Dr Karan Singh accompanied by the Chief Minister inaugurated the Nalagarh Squash Courts in memory of Raja Surendra Singh in the YPS Stadium.

This was preceded, on Thursday, by the customary Pagal Gymkhana games, followed by a colourful fete with scrumptious food and fun-filled game stalls. A friendly Cricket Match between the OY XI and Present Yadavindrians XI, yet another annual ritual, was played on home grounds and the highly acclaimed School English Play ‘Sound of Music’ was restaged in the evening at the Harpal Tiwana Centre for Performing Arts, Patiala. This was preceded by a special dinner hosted by Captain Amarinder for the visiting dignitaries and the Old Yadavindrians.
 
Among the other distinguished guests were former Law Minister and senior Congress leader, Ashwini Kumar, Life President, IOA (Indian Olympic Association) Raja Randhir Singh, Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, besides distinguished members of the School Governing body.

The Chief Minister was also accompanied by his Senior Advisor Lt. General (Retd.) TS Shergill, Media Advisor Raveen Thukral besides son Raninder Singh and MLA Vijay Inder Singla.

Maharaja Yadavindra Singh, who was an alumnus of Lahore’s renowned Aitchison College, had come up with the idea of YPS after partition, when evacuee students found themselves in jeopardy due to the abrupt discontinuation of their education. The students turned to Maharaja Yadavindra for help and he sent an urgent message to Rai Bahadur Dhani Ram Kapila, his former teacher, and entrusted him with the responsibility of starting a school and being its first Headmaster at the earliest. Thus, Yadavindra Public School started functioning on February 2, 1948, with strength of 21 students and 9 teachers.

'CENTRE HAS MISERABLY FAILED IN THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS FARMERS'
Budget has failed to address states' concerns, farmers' distress: Punjab CM

Budget has failed to address states' concerns, farmers' distress: Punjab CM



CHANDIGARH: Dismissing it as non-visionary and anti-farmer, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has described the Union Budget as ‘disappointing’ for the state, with the Union Finance Minister having failed to address most of the issues raised by Punjab at the pre-budget meeting and also failing to announce any measures to address the farmers’ distress.

Not only did the budget not contain any announcement on farm loan waiver, it also failed to implement the Swaminathan Committee report in toto, making it clear that the central government did not recognize the agrarian distress of the state’s farmers, Amarinder said in his initial budget reaction.

Punjab, which has implemented loan waiver for the beleaguered farmers despite severe financial constraints, had been expected something on it in the budget, he said, adding that the central government should have taken some initiative in this regard. The Government of India has miserably failed to share its responsibility in the budget towards the farmers, who have provided food security to the nation, said the Chief Minister.

Reacting cautiously to the proposed hike in MSP to fix it at 1.5 times the expenditure, Captain said while the details would need to be examined, on the face of it, the Centre should have implemented the Swaminathan Committee report in full. He further said that if the central government was serious about the issue, it should implement the report of Niti Ayog member Ramesh Chand on the issue.

Further, said the Chief Minister, the Centre had also failed to help the State of Punjab in its crop diversification efforts through setting up of National Horticulture University. No major outlay for research and development in the agriculture sector had been announced, even though the Economic Survey had recognized the climate change and its impact on  agriculture as a major issue.

He also criticized the Government of India’s failure to accede to the request of the states to change the funding pattern of the Centrally Sponsored Schemes to 90:10 from the present 60:40 in any of the sectors.  
 
In fact, said Captain Amarinder, the budget had been silent on the modalities to meet its declared obligations in most of the sectors, especially in the context of the fact that it had failed to provide its share of money in various schemes during the last financial year.   

Besides failing to announce any new railway line for the State of Punjab, the central government had also failed to recognize and appreciate the fact that Punjab, which shares its borders with hostile neighbours, played a vital role in the country’s security, said Amarinder, lamenting the absence of any budgetary outlay for the same.
 
He said that the Finance Minister had given no relief to the middle and the salaried classes, which constitute a major part of the country’s population. He said it’s ironical that the finance minister had put an additional burden of 1% on the salaried class by increasing the education cess from 3% to 4%.

The Chief Minister further pointed to the central government’s failure to allocate any budget to celebrate the centenary of the Jaillianwala Bagh this year, or the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, despite specific requests from the state.

Captain Amarinder also condemned the fact that, under the guise of supporting MSME, the Centre had allowed the exemption in Corporate Tax to companies with turnover of Rs. 250 crores.
