Hello Friends, can any one help me out from getting the material(question bank) to prepare for PSU(HR) exams. I would be glad if any one help me
Dear Gaurav / Sachin
Thanks for updating us on Budget 2011-12. I have one query or not confirm that Mr. Mukherjee introduce in this budget if any employee salary is below tax level then there is no requirement to fillup the return. But if any employees salary is taxable then employer have to submit employees income tax return to IT department ?
If is is applicable to all employer then employers responsibility also increase, first we have to collect declaration from employee for not getting any other income except salary, also collect employees investment proofs and finally submit employees return. It is right ?

can someone tell me one thing.....
as Three more categories have been added to Service Tax,
In a restaurant we already have VAT, now will that VAT be removed or VAT will have to be paid along with Service Tax????????????????????

Dear Mr Garauv and suresh, Thanks for sending the summary of the budget as it will help us to know and understand the nity grity of the budet. Regards permeshwer nath
The budget process is totally antiquated.in most nations policies are introduced after long discussions and we should follow the same.
Most of the time budgets are associated with big bang policy and most of them are not implemented.
let us stop making spectacular announcements.
This should bea constructive one about specific expenditure control initiatives.
I would like the governmnet to do something about the efficiency of government and not to talk about outlays and outcomes
