No GST on old gold sold to jewellers  ‘It does not qualify as a sale per se’ Sale of old gold ornaments by individuals to jewellers won’t be subject to Goods and Services Tax (GST), the Government said. Responding to a query in a GST Master Class on Wednesday, tax authorities had suggested that the sale of old gold jewellery by a consumer to a jeweller would be subject to GST at the rate of 3% under the reverse charge mechanism of the GST law and jewellers could claim input tax on such purchases. “On further examination, it is felt that the issue needs to be clarified,” an official statement… Read More

It’s not help, it’s work We need a legislation to regulate domestic work Employing a help in house? Only after verification,” says the ad’s headline. Below, in capital letters, appears a warning: “An unverified domestic help can pose a serious security risk.” And then a call to action: “Contact your beat constable or local police station for domestic help verification.” The copy is set against a visual of a cop taking a picture of a young girl, presumably the domestic help, while an elderly woman, her employer, looks on. The girl picked to represent the ‘domestic help’ has the features of an adivasi, is slightly built, and dark-complexioned. She is… Read More

CPI inflation slows to 1.54%, IIP at 1.72%  CEA Subramanian hints at need to reboot monetary policy assumptions amid ‘deflationary trends’ Inflation measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) slipped below the central bank’s lower tolerance level to 1.54% in June and industrial output growth decelerated to 1.72% in May, prompting Chief Economic Advisor (CEA) Arvind Subramanian to hint at the need to reboot monetary policy assumptions including ‘systematic inflation forecast errors’ he had red-flagged earlier. “The number of 1.54% is historically low and reflects the firm and ongoing consolidation of macro-economic stability,” Mr. Subramanian said soon after the data was released. “The last time we saw such inflation —… Read More

Bitcoin trade may come under SEBI The government is considering the introduction of a regulatory regime for virtual or crypto currencies, such as Bitcoin, that would enable the levy of the Goods and Services Tax on their sale. The new regime may possibly bring their trading under the oversight of the stock market regulator, Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). The idea is to treat such currency in a manner similar to gold sold digitally, so that it can be traded on registered exchanges in a bid to “promote” a formal tax base, while keeping a tab on their use for illegal activities such as money laundering, terror funding… Read More

Mothers as monitors Ready-to-eat fortified meals are not the best solution to tackle malnutrition among children On the occasion of World Hunger Day on May 28, Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi had spoken eloquently about the need to serve ready-to-eat fortified meals to tackle malnutrition in the country. India still has an unenviable track record when it comes to tackling malnutrition among children and pregnant women. What was not surprising was the similarity in approach of Ms. Gandhi and her predecessor, Renuka Chowdhury, towards addressing the issue of malnutrition among the very young. While expressing horror at the quality of meals served to children between the… Read More

Getting GST right Why tax exemption on personal hygiene products for women is crucial I will always remember the midnight launch of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on June 30/July 1 as the moment when my government let down a girl who died in Assam’s Baksa district. Maggots had found their way into her stomach because she had used a rag during her periods. Her parents refused to treat her as they thought she was pregnant. Eventually it was too late even though she was taken to a hospital. The road to rights When I started my online petition on March 8, requesting the Union Finance Minister to make eco-friendly… Read More

Reading between the numbers A nuanced understanding of the population question is vital July 11 has been designated by the United Nations as World Population Day. The UN chooses one aspect of population to draw attention to each year; this year the theme is access to family planning. As someone who teaches a semester-long course on ‘population dynamics’ (the changing interplay of population size, growth and distribution), I want to underline three related but distinct reasons why we should, or should not, as seekers of a healthy, wealthy and wise world for all its inhabitants, keep population dynamics in mind. Let’s set aside for the moment the UN’s projection of… Read More

‘China seen as more innovative in IT than India’ Asian rival doesn’t have a TCS, but it has a Tencent and Alibaba which are more dominant and valuable in the future A 7% growth rate is not good enough for India and its IT industry has missed the bus on innovation by sticking to a template that worked 25 years ago, believes economistSoumitra Duttawho co-authors theWorld Economic Forum‘s annual Global Information Technology report. Layoffs and adjustments, to tumult in its largest market —the U.S. — are transient factors and the real worry is that China is seen as more innovative now than India in the IT space, said Mr. Dutta,… Read More

The moral coarseness of our public culture Our complex moral sensibilities are cultivated less within the family, more through systematic teaching in the humanities If some wrong is done to people close to us, to our family or friends, we respond with utter horror, as we must. Why then do we react feebly or, worse, not at all when people beyond our little community are treated cruelly? More specifically, why has there not been greater collective outrage at mob lynching of a poor Muslim or the horrendous brutality regularly faced by Dalits? Why is it that instead of a chorus of straightforward condemnation, we confront moral indifference or troublesome public… Read More
