LS passes 4-month budget for U’khand

A day ahead of the floor test in the Uttarakhand assembly, the Lok Sabha passed a fourmonth budget of ` 13,640 crore for the state on Monday amid resistance from Opposition parties. The Bill was passed by a voice vote. Moving the Appropriation bill, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said its passage was a “constitutional requirement”, even as Congress MPs staged a walkout in protest, while members of other Opposition parties, including the Trinamool Congress (TMC), Biju Janata Dal (BJD), Telengana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) opposed the move. “Parliament would have had to pass the bill – which makes funds provisions for a period of four months from April – even in the case of a popular government being installed in Uttarakhand after Tuesday’s floor test. Therefore, the timing of the decision to move the bill is not of consequence”, Jaitley responded to questions from Opposition MPs about the need to push through with the legislation. Jaitley said the bill had …

Govt open to reviewing draft of Geospatial Bill

The government on Monday indicated that it was ready to review the contentious provisions in the draft of the Geospatial Information Regulation Bill. According to the draft bill, it will be mandatory to take permission from a government authority before acquiring, disseminating, publishing or distributing any geospatial information of India. The draft also proposes a jail term of seven years and a fine upto ` 100 crore if anyone wrongly depicts India’s map prepared with geospatial imagery. “The idea behind the bill is to ensure privacy of Internet users. We are open to consider all suggestions that will come in the next one month,” a top home ministry official said on the condition of anonymity. The government has put the draft of the bill in public domain. All stakeholders in the government have been asked for their views.

Finance ministry mulls releasing I- T data annually

The finance ministry plans to bring out detailed income tax ( I- T) data annually, in response to criticism by economist Thomas Piketty over lack of public I- T statistics in India. After almost 16 years, the revenue department last week made public three sets of data related to direct taxes, including time series data since 2001- 02. The detailed analysis of I- T statistics, based on returns filed, was for 2011- 12 alone. Piketty, economist and author of Capital in the Twenty- First Century, told Business Standard the data released by the government were too limited to draw significant inferences. “ The government released detailed data by income range only for 20122013 ( assessment year). To study the evolution of income distribution, we would need detailed data by income range for all years. Iam looking forward to see this data,” he said in an emailed response. The finance ministry is set to update the income range data by releasing it for assessment years 2013- 14 and 2014- 15 by June-…

New era of reforms: The Bankruptcy & Insolvency Code 2016

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2015 is expected to address the problem of dealing with multiple laws for anyone wanting to do business in India. The present government has realised that the ease of doing business is not only about convenient entry into the market but also providing easy exit and restricting debt. One of the most important reform envisaged in this bill is to make substantive changes in eleven enactments and repealing some to avoid conflicting rules. There is also provision to takeaway the jurisdiction of the civil court to ensure fast and effective process. Specialised adjudicating authorities like NCLT and DRT will be adjudicating authorities to deal with special corporate issues effectively. The bill prescribes the time limit for procedures at every stage to ensure a result in 180 days. It also has provisions for force majeure and one time extension of 90 days in certain circumstances. There is also a fasttrack option with a 90-day limit and a single extension of 4…

It's a Home Buyers' Paradise as Housing Prices Stagnate

Fall in appreciation in top Indian cities forces investors out of the housing market A sharp decline in property price appreciation in top Indian cities has pushed investors out of the housing market in India, which has turned into an end users' paradise, thanks to stagnating prices and, in some cases, deeply discounted distress sales. Investors say they are unable to exit multiple investments made over the last few years even at a loss, accentuating the pain for them. In Mumbai, for instance, the average residential property prices in the city and its suburbs witnessed an appreciation of only 3.3% in 2015 as against an average of 7% in 2014, showed a study by property consultancy JLL India. Similar was the case with the Delhi-National Capital Region, which is a big investor market, and Bengaluru and Chennai. All of these markets have seen prices appreciating around 2% in the last quarter of 2015. “A sign of any residential market's increasing maturity is evidenced by gentler pric…
