Download Imp Amendments To Finance Bill 2017 As Introduced In The Lok Sabha

The Government has proposed several landmark amendments to the Finance Bill 2017 including provisions relating to the appointment of, and remuneration to, the ITAT Members. There is also a controversial provision to make the Aadhar card mandatory for filing income-tax returns.

The amendments to the Finance Bill also provides for amendments to the Securities and Exchange Board of India Act, Consumer Protection Act, Administrative Tribunals Act, Income Tax Act, Cinematograph Act, Customs Act, Recovery of Debts Due to Banks and Financial Institutions Act, Electricity Act, Armed Forces Tribunal Act 2007 and the National Green Tribunal Act 2010 to bring the pay, qualifications, appointment, term of service, resignation, removal and terms and conditions of service under the Finance Act, Section 179.

It may be recalled that the government began the process of merging tribunals earlier, with NCLT and its appellate body subsuming within them the board for industrial and financial reconstruction, its appellate authority and the company law board. It also introduced one permanent tribunal for interstate water disputes by merging existing ad-hoc bodies.

  4. Problem today is FM is over bearing and he thinks he can make and unmake – factual position is law makers can never assume so much authority, when they tackle issues of 125 crores of indians, many among the people are much better educated to assess what is right on their rights than these great ‘buffons’ and their buffonery.
