Default Re: Important Government Circulars/ Orders / OM's / Notifications

I had made a RTI query with the Ministry of Transport and Highways, Government of India, regarding the One Time Tax (OTT) payment in one state and then the owner due to the nature of his/her job shifting the motor vehicle to another state.The query was as to whether there are OM's,Circulars,GR's etc regarding the payment of OTT in one state and owing to the motor vehicle getting shifted due to the owner's nature of duties,the extant rules that apply in such cases.
I have received a reply no. L-34014/425/2011-RTI dated 10th October 2011 from the Chief Public Information Officer (CPIO) of the Ministry who has forwarded my RTI application to the Director (Road Transport), Ministry of Transport and Highways.

Hi Anjan,

This means that if you have a reason of why you are moving to other state then we could avoid the respective state tax or nominal tax payment.

if this is true then i would be the happiest person...among your message followers

4veel yes, we hoped some positive reply will be received but you will see it here on the link given below. I received it today. Its very dissappointing that there is no Central law to curb multiple taxation.

A number of changes in the National Small Savings Schemes are on the anvil w.e.f. 01/12/2011.
The Kisan Vikas Patra is being discontinued. P.O. Savings Bank deposits will fetch 4% (earlier 3.5 %) and PPF 8.6 % (earlier 8 %)interest per annum.Each PPF account can be filled to the brim by Rs 100,000 per annum, up from the hitherto Rs 70,000. The interest of 8.6 % is non taxable. By far it is the safest and best savings instrument, as the non taxable interest compounded works out to something more than 12 % p.a.They say money can't grow on trees but money will grow in PPF accounts come 1/12/2011.
PPF loans will also mean deduction of 2 % of the amount withdrawn (earlier 1 %)and the agents role will be discontinued even for PPF accounts in Post Offices.Till now the banks had discontinued the practice of depositing money in PPF through agents and the Post Offices had continued but no more come 1/12/2011.
The government hopes to garner about Rs 40,000 crores in 12 calender months in small savings through these measures.There is a projected shortfall in the small savings target to the tune of Rs 50,000 crores during this fiscal which has made the government go for these measures.
More on these notifications issued by Ministry of Communication, Department of Posts on 24/11/2011, all effective from 1/12/2011.

Anjan, sorry to burst your bubble, but when we talk about various departments and their policies and their notifications/circulars/amendments to rules/notifications, there are just too many to count, which is where CAs and consultants make their money. Whatever useful info you have provided here so far is there in the internet for people to see, even your RTI facts.

Thanks esteem lover. I would request you to please provide me the pertinent links for the information that I have sought through RTI. At least next time onwards, I would not spend so much efforts in seeking RTI queries, if all the information is readily available according to you.

Anjan, i did not mean to belittle your efforts, only tried to point out that RTI replies will only quote back the relevant prevailing rules/notifications pertaining only to their jurisdiction(which is all there in the relevant websites of these departments) (been on the other end many times) and will not give you a solution for your problem, which is well within the RTI Act.

It is a given fact that the vehicle has to be re-registered and local taxes paid in the new state. Also, there is a provision for a refund from the previous state (which never works, I guess).

All the notifications from the Ministry of Transport can be read from here

DGCA from here, including the one which you keep in your bag.

Customs, Excise and Service Tax over here

There are websites for all departments in the GOI and all the Acts/Rules/Notifications/Circulars are regulary updated in these sites. It is mandatory. In fact, even the departmental officials themselves rely on these as a ready reckoner anywhere.

cheers

The sites have lots of information but you see I have posted the specific and relevant data as desired, for our day to day consumption.
And about airport photography, I would be glad if you post the particular and specific link in the DGCA website and so also the particular link in the MOT and H website.
Very few of us have all the time to browse through these huge data filled websites.
I would suggest you to also post something of relevance, since you seem to be aware of useful information in such websites here, for use and consumption by most of the members for day to day use.

A friend of mine purchased a company registered car MH 01 and transfered to his personal name MH 04. I managed to get him a refund due due to differential in tax rate, company rate to private owner. This was about 8 years ago.
Sometimes it does work.

Very right harit.I too had done a similar exercise for my colleague who had a motor vehicle with an Amravati registration and got it transferred to Tamil Nadu.The refund was obtained after one year and the pay order was on a paper that got tattered and had to be again issued in duplicate.
The motor vehicle has to be registered in the new place and then the RC and TC are sent back and certified xeroxes are submitted after they verify the originals.The comes the procedure that takes time.

Here are the general circulars from DGCA some of which might be useful to common people. OPERATIONS CIRCULARS

There are many more types of circulars if you browse through the left hand side of the page.

Here is the particular circular which you got through RTI

Like I said, RTI is only for showing you what already exists, not for providing new/fresh solutions.

Air India has now introduced the provision of concessional booking including LTC tickets on their website. Now you don’t have to go to the city office or the Airport to book an LTC-80 tkt.

The eligibility conditions for various concessions can be accessed from the home webpage. However the following is the general outline: -

Youth - 50% on base fare
Student - 50% on base fare
Senior Citizen - 50% on base fare
Govt Employee – SPECIFIED LTC-80 FARE
Armed Forces – 50% on base fare
General Reserve Engineering Forces – 50% on base fare
Para Military Forces - 50% on base fare
Armed Forces Bravery Awardees – 75% on base fare
War widow - 75% on base fare
War disabled soldier - 75% on base fare, 50 % for the family

Note – All of the above concessions are on the Full Economy Class fare except for LTC-80 fares, which are fixed fares for all sectors.

So, invariably you will find that the fare available without choosing any of the concession will be lower than the concession fares except for the LTC-80 fare (in most of the cases). However, if the open fare is lower than concessional fare, the website will invariably display the open fare. That is the good part of it. (Not applicable in case of LTC-80 as these fares are fixed). An example for one sector is as under_

Normal open available fare on the Internet or website

Adult
Base fare per traveller
INR 2,430.00
Total charges and fees per traveller
INR 1,707.00
Total per traveller
INR 4,137.00
Number of travellers
1
Total
INR 4,137.00
Total price including taxes
INR 4,137.00

Government Employee / LTC-80 Fare (These are fixed fares)

Government employee
Base fare per traveller
INR 6,201.00
Total charges and fees per traveller
INR 1,707.00
Total per traveller
INR 7,908.00
Number of travellers

Total per traveller
INR 4,137.00
Number of travellers
1
Total
INR 4,137.00
Total price including taxes
INR 4,137.00

Senior Citizen fare

Senior citizen
Base fare per traveller
INR 2,430.00
Total charges and fees per traveller
INR 1,707.00
Total per traveller
INR 4,137.00
Number of travellers
1
Total
INR 4,137.00
Total price including taxes
INR 4,137.00


To Access…
Go to Welcome To AirIndia and on the booking options, click on the link “Would you like to book as a concessionary Passenger?”
Or directly open the linkhttps://book.airindia.in/itd/itd/Air.

Choose your concession and proceed with the booking. (For LTC-80 fare, choose the option of Government Employee)

Rest of the procedure is self-explanatory.
