Aadhar to be made mandatory for filing I-T return, applying for PAN card



The government has proposed to make Aadhaar card mandatory for filing income tax return and also applying for permanent account number (PAN). 

The new proposal has been made through an amendment to the Finance Bill.

Recently, the I-T department had announced a mobile app for paying taxes and tracking of refunds. It had also said it was considering issuing PANs on real time basis using Aadhaar biometric. 

"Income Tax department is considering issuing of Permanent Account Number (PAN) on a real time basis using Aadhaar's e-KYC facility. The proposal is at an initial stage of consideration," Minister of State for Finance Santosh Kumar Gangwar had said in a written reply in Lok Sabha on March 10. 

Aadhaar-based e-KYC facility would allow individuals or entities wanting to apply for PAN to verify details such as date of birth or address by way of biometric identification using thumb impressions. 

So far, more than 111 crore Aadhar numbers have been issued. The unique identification number is being used for getting a new SIM card, for opening bank accounts, transfer of subsidies and also for biometric based digital payments under Aadhaar Enabled Payment System. 

As per the government estimate, every year 2.5 crore people across the country apply for PAN cards. 

There are more than 25 crore PAN card holders in the country.

Latest updates on retirement age of Central Government employees

“Again a news is circulating in the media that the retirement age for Central Government employees is going to be raised from 60 to 62.”

At present, the retirement age for Central Government employees is 60. There is no factual basis for the news that the government is planning to increase the retirement age for Central Government employees from 60 to 62.
A familiar article about raising the retirement age first published in 2011 are being republished now in some blogs and websites.
We are presenting the following explanation after constant enquiries from our readers about this news.

There might be other reasons behind these rumours on retirement age. The recent wages revision report for the employees of the Central Public Sector Enterprises(CPSE) contain recommendations on retirement age.

But there are no such recommendations in the report of 7th Central Pay Commission for Central Government employees. Big debate also took place in 2015 about the raising the retirement age to 62. That time federations leaders also said that the recommendation on retirement age does not come under the purview of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.

The employees have now questioned the changes in the powers of the Pay Commission or Pay Revision Committee that are directly constituted by the Central Government.

Information about retirement age continues to spread like wild fire because the issue is immensely popular among the Central Government employees. Interestingly, the issue of raising the retirement age has as many supporters as detractors.

The retirement age was first increased by the Congress Government under the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru, in 1962, from 55 to 58. The Vajpayee government, in 1998, increased the retirement age from 58 to 60.
