April-September indirect tax collection up 36%

A bulk of the growth has been contributed by excise duty Signalling faster economic growth, the Centre’s indirect tax collections rose 35.8 per cent in the first half ( AprilSeptember) of 2015- 16. This was mainly due to additional revenue measures announced this year, showed data issued by the ministry of finance on Friday. The collections were Rs.3.24 lakh crore in these six months, from Rs.2.38 lakh crore in the corresponding period of last year. The year’s Union Budget had estimated no more than a 19 per cent rise in indirect taxes. Service tax, excise duty and customs are major components. Part of the rise was due to measures such as the excise increases on diesel and petrol, increase in clean energy cess, withdrawal of exemptions for motor vehicles, capital goods and consumer durables, and, from June, increase in service tax from 12.36 to 14 per cent. September’s collection was up 32.6 per cent over a year before, at Rs.61,284 crore. The bulk of the growth was from excise duty collecti…

RBI allows 90% loan to value ratio on home loans up to Rs.30 lakh

The decision is line with RBI’s statement on 29 September that it was reviewing these norms and will release guidelines shortly The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Thursday increased the amount banks can advance for a property purchase and also reduced the so-called risk weights attached to some categories of home loans in a move that will likely make more credit available to borrowers and improve sentiment in a struggling real estate market. In a notification, RBI allowed a loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of up to 90% for home loans of Rs.30 lakh or less. Earlier, 90% LTV was allowed only for loans up to Rs.20 lakh. LTV denotes how much of the property value a bank can lend to a borrower. A 90% LTV indicates that the buyer will have to shell out only 10% of the property value and the rest can be financed through banks. Loans up to Rs.30 lakh fall under the “affordable” category in urban areas. While some banks add stamp duty and registration amount to calculate the total property value and disb…

SEZs Set to Lose Tax Incentives in Rationalisation

Slew of other sops may also go as govt prepares to lower corp tax rate to 25%
The government will soon forge ahead with plans to cut through the clutter of exemptions that litter the corporate tax code. Tax breaks for special economic zones and units, investment allowances, employment generation, plantation, packaging, highways and accelerated depreciation are some of the incentives that could get end dates as part of the cleanup drive as the rate of tax on companies is lowered to 25% over the next four years. The introduction of a firm sunset date in open-ended exemptions that do not have this option would ensure there is no disruption from the phasing out of these benefits running into thousands of crores of rupees. The finance ministry is working on proposals for amendments that will set an expiry date on benefits along with a grandfathering provision for existing beneficiaries to ensure a smooth transition. That means old rules will apply to existing projects and not new ones. The pr…
