Hry CM: Special incentives to be offered to set up pharma industries

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said that special incentives will be given for setting up pharma industries in the state.

The State Government is focusing on boosting small, micro and medium scale industries and is steadily working towards developing the state into a hub of pharmaceutical industry, the Chief Minister said while presiding over a meeting with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) held digitally,

The Chief Minister elaborated that a major area of the state falls under the NCR-region and it has sound parameters and is all set to compete with other states.

He said that Haryana stood third in Ease of Doing Business. Besides this, the state has put 18 Departments under one umbrella where it is made mandatory to give clearance in 45 days. The State Government has formulated the Haryana Entrepreneur and Employment Enterprises Policy and under its ambit several facilities are being provided to the industry, he said.

Khattar further said that the State Government aims to set up a large number of such clusters at the district level under MSMEs so as to provide maximum employment opportunities to the youth of the state. With this scheme, more marketing can be done at less cost.

 

INTERNATIONAL

Tax Inspectors Without Borders – TIWB

 

Bhutan launched the Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) programme in collaboration with India.

 

It is a collaborative effort between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) (OECD).

The programme has been launched in Bhutan, with India serving as the Partner Jurisdiction.

The Tax Expert for this programme has been provided by India.

This programme, which is expected to last about 24 months, aims to assist Bhutan in strengthening its tax administration by transferring technical know-how and skills to its tax auditors and sharing best audit practises in collaboration with the UNDP and the TIWB Secretariat.

The program’s primary focus will be on international taxation and transfer pricing.

The TIWB Initiative aims to facilitate the sharing of tax audit knowledge and skills with developing-country tax administrations through a targeted, real-time “learning by doing” approach.

Selected experts will work directly with local tax officials on current audits and audit-related issues pertaining to international tax matters as well as general audit practises applicable to specific cases.

 

NATIONAL

Results of Ganga Quest 2021 – Ganga Dussehra

 

Ganga Quest, a national online quiz on Ganga, rivers, and the environment, was first conceived in 2019 as an educational programme to sensitise children and youth towards the River Ganga in order to strengthen the Namami Gange programme of the Ministry of Jal Shakti, Government of India.

Ganga Quest is a competitive knowledge-building platform, an awareness initiative, and a scientific baseline determination exercise designed to assess knowledge gaps and attitude orientation toward the Ganga and Rivers.

Ganga Quest is an international bilingual (Hindi and English) online quiz about Ganga organised by the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) and the TREE Craze Foundation (TCF), a non-profit organisation dedicated to Ganga, Rivers, and the Environment.

National Population Register – NPR

 

According to a Union Home Ministry manual, migrants from six non-Muslim minority communities in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh can also produce National Population Register (NPR) enrolment slips as proof of the duration of their stay in India when applying for long-term visas (LTVs).

The NPR number is one of more than ten documents that could be provided to apply for an LTV, which is a prerequisite to acquiring Indian citizenship either by naturalisation or registration under Sections 5 and 6 of the Citizenship Act, 1955, for the six non-Muslim communities.

These communities are: Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, Christians, Jains, and Buddhists.

For the first time, a special provision for LTVs for Hindus and Sikhs from Pakistan and Afghanistan was made in 2011.

It was also claimed that the awareness campaign has nothing to do with the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, which is intended to help undocumented migrants from the six groups who entered India before the 2014 cut-off date.

The CAA has not yet been implemented.

 

Launch of ITAT e-DWAR

 

Union Law Minister launches ITAT e-DWAR.

ITAT e-DWAR is the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal’s e-filing portal (ITAT). The portal would allow parties to electronically file their Appeals, Miscellaneous Applications, documents, paper books, and so on.

The portal will improve accessibility, accountability, and transparency in the ITAT’s day-to-day operations.

It will not only reduce the use of paper, resulting in cost savings, but it will also rationalise case fixation, resulting in faster case disposition.
