Govt open to proposals to further cleanse pol funding: Jaitley

New Delhi, Jan 7 (PTI) The electoral bonds mechanism is a substantial improvement in transparency over the present system and the government is open to suggestions to further cleanse political funding, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Sunday.

In a Facebook post, Jaitley said the conventional practice of funding the political system was to take donations as well as undertake expenditures in cash.

The sources are anonymous or pseudonymous. The quantum of money was never disclosed and the system ensures unclean money coming from unidentifiable sources.

"It is a wholly non-transparent system. Most political groups seem fairly satisfied with the present arrangement and would not mind this status-quo to continue.

"The effort, therefore, is to run down any alternative system which is devised to cleanse up the political funding mechanism," Jaitley said.

The finance minister had last week announced the contours of the electoral bonds, which will be sold by country's latest lender SBI and will have a tenure of just 15 days.

The bonds are being pitched as an alternative to cash donations made to political parties.

Jaitley said the choice has now to be "consciously" made between the existing system of substantial cash donations involving unclean money and other transparent options like cheque, online transactions or electoral bonds.

"While all three methods involve clean money, the first two are totally transparent and the electoral bonds scheme is a substantial improvement in transparency over the present system of no-transparency," he said.

"The government is willing to consider all suggestions to further strengthen the cleansing of political funding in India. It has to be borne in mind that impractical suggestions will not improve the cash denominated system. They would only consolidate it," Jaitley wrote.

He said India, despite being the largest democracy in the world, has not been able to evolve a transparent political funding system in the last seven decades.

"The round the year functioning of the political parties involves a large expenditure... These expenditures run into hundreds of crores. Yet there has not been a transparent funding mechanism of the political system," he said.

केजरीवाल सरकार ने पानी के बिल में २० प्रतिशत का इज़ाफ़ा किया
देखिए क्या कहा कपिल मिश्रा ने

केजरिवल जो स्वयं जल मंत्री का प्रभार भी संभालते हैं आज सवालों के घेरो में है, इसका कारण है पानी के बिल को २० प्रतिशत बढ़ाना, यही अरविंद केजरीवाल बहुत ज़ोर शोर से चिल्लाते थे की हम पानी मुफ़्त देकर भी जल बोर्ड को प्रॉफिट में चला रहे है.
२० प्रतिशत एक साथ बढ़ने से आम आदमी पर बहुत बोझ आ जाएगा

देखिए केजरीवाल के इस कदम से बिभिन्न नेताओं ने क्या कहा

कपिल मिश्रा जो की जल विभाग देख रहे थे बहुत हैरान हैं की ऐसा कैसे हो गया उन्होने ट्वीट कर के लिखा

श्रीमान आर्विन्द्खेज्रिवल , मेट्रो के दाम घटाने के लिए आप 1500 करोड़ रुपये देने को तैयार थे।

उन्ही पैसों को अपने ही दिल्ली जल बोर्ड को देकर पानी के दाम बढ़ने से रोक लीजिये।

याद रखिये, मैंने तीन साल तक पानी के दाम नहीं बढ़ने दिए थे और आपने तीन महीने में बढ़ा दिए।

एक और ट्वीट में उन्होने लिखा

आप के झूठ का पर्दाफाश -

सबके पानी के बिल बढेंगे - 20,000 से लीटर कम पानी इस्तेमाल करने वालों  के भी ज्यादा बिल आएंगे  क्योंकि पानी के साथ सीवर चार्ज भी 20% बढ़ाया है जो सबके बिल में आएगा।

भाजपा नेता तेजिंदर बग्गा ने भी एक वीडियो ट्वीट किया जिसमे केजरीवाल जल बोर्ड के मुनाफ़े की बात कह रहे हैं

आर्विन्द्खेज्रिवल जी इस वीडियो में आप कह रहे है कि आपके आने के बाद दिल्ली जल बोर्ड को 178 करोड़ सालाना मुनाफा हो रहा है, फिर आप क्यों पानी के दाम बड़ा के दिल्ली के लोगो पर बोझ डालना चाहते है ? आप अपना ये वीडियो देखें और बताए आप तब झूठ बोल रहे थे या अब ।

  1. Not only water tarrif but Sewer charges also increased by 20% increase is huge. A budget promise is broken. Kejriwal was ready to give ₹1500 crore to reduce metro fare, why can't same money be used to reduce water tarrif???
  2. दिल्ली सरकार ने पानी का दाम बढ़ाने का फैसला किया. अचानक ऐसा फैसला क्यों? क्या के जल मंत्री बनते ही दिल्ली जल बोर्ड अचानक घाटे में चला गया है? ये दिल्ली वालों के साथ धोखा है। दाम न बढ़ाने का वादा किया गया था।

DIVINE INDIA INFRASTRUCTURE PVT LTD STILL CHARGING GST ON MAINTENANCE DESPITE BEING EXEMPT

LEFT IN LURCH  - RESIDENTS OF DIVINE MEADOWS PAYING 18% GST ON MAINTENANCE AND ELECTRICITY  
Residents of DIVINE MEADOWS a project of Divine India Infrastructure in SECTOR 108 NOIDA are being charged 18% GST on their maintenance and electricity bills. They have approached the builder on numerous occasions after a notification which says that GST is exempt for maintenance bills less than 5000 but their requests have gone into the deaf ears. The builder has clearly said that he would continue to charge 18% GST. Hence the residents are feeling helpless and are forced to pay the GST in order to get the uninterrupted services. The monthly maintenance charges in Divine Meadows range from Rs 1500 to 3000 rupees a month.
As per the Goods and Services Tax law, maintenance charges upto Rs 5000 a month are exempt from GST. Although the Finance Ministry has issued a clarification, this arbitrary calculation of GST done by the builder has left home owners of Divine Meadows confused.
The residents are worried as they have no clue where to go and to whom they should raise this issue. They wanted clear guidelines regarding GST on maintenance bills but are confused whom to approach

According to Divine India if a builder or its appointed company is taking care of the maintenance of the project then they have to charge GST irrespective of the amount

The notification has the following language

As per guidelines on maintenance charges upto Rs. 5000/- no GST is applicable. Maintenance charges means only maintenance or collection of all charges

This is applicable to only the reimbursements of charges or share of up to an amount of five thousand rupees per month per member for sourcing of goods or services from a third person for the common use of its members. Here, charges mean the indivisual contributions made by members of the society to avail services or goods by the society from a third party for common use. [*Entry 77(c) of notification no 12/2017 Central Tax (Rate) dated 28.6.2017 refers]

Monthly maintenance (all above charges) are below Rs.5000/-but yearly total collection exceeds Rs. 20 lakhs limit whether GST is applicable

Reimbursement of charges or share of contribution up to an amount of Rs. 5000/- per month per member for sourcing of goods or services from a third person for the common use is not liable to GST. However, if the Cooperative society/ RWAs provide specific services of its own to its members or to any third party (e.g. use of community hall for social function by a non-member) cumulatively exceeds the threshold limit as per GST, then GST is leviable on such supply of services.

“We need clarity from the GST Council or Ministry of Finance regarding GST ON MAINTENANCE” said a resident
“The builder is also charging GST on electricity bills and as per our understanding he is only supposed to charge GST on power backup but we have no clarity as yet” said another resident of same society

There are other societies in NOIDA and Greater Noida where the residents have raised the same issue of GST on maintenance and electricity bills but everyone is confused and there are no proper guidelines from the government. The confusion regarding GST rates remains unresolved.
