Unaccounted deposits to attract 50% tax, 4 yr lock-in period

New Delhi, Nov 25 (PTI) A minimum of 50 per cent tax may be levied on unexplained bank deposits made using the banned currency notes up to December 30 along with a 4-year lock in period for half of the remaining amount under the amendments to tax law the government plans to bring in Parliament shortly.

However, a higher 90 per cent tax and penalty could be imposed if assessees do not declare the unaccounted cash voluntarily.

Cash deposits made using the scrapped 500 and 1000 rupee notes above a threshold that are declared to Income Tax authorities may attract 50 per cent tax, as per the amendment to the Income Tax Act approved by the Cabinet last night.

Half of remaining deposits, or 25 per cent of the original deposit, will not be allowed to be withdrawn for four years, top sources said.

Update on ACIT promotion (Adhoc promotion for 2016-17 and regularization of 2014-15)

1)The UPSC has taken a stand that DPC will not be held so long the DoPT doesn't clarify the OM dt. 30.09.2016. The same was intimated to CBDT in writing while the proposal of 2014-15 was sent.
2)DoPT is waiting for verdict from SC and not issuing clarification.
3)The SC heard the case on 22.11.2016 and allowed the respondants to file affidavit in one week. Next date of hearing not given. It seems to take much time for a verdict to come.
4) CBDT is not ready to give adhoc promotion of 2016-17 in fear of contempt of court and violation of DoPT OM.
5) No hope for both the regular promotion of 2014-15 and adhoc promotion of 2016-17 immediately, if these conditions persist.
