“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflectsit- Edith Wharton   “ The light from candles cannot really help in enlightening a darkened life ruined by  inhuman and devilish acts of sick  minds of  society. Whether its New Delhi , Bihar, Jharkhand ,Mumbai or any other part of this country, every time  any such  unfortunate event takes place, everything starts to seem very much repetitive.

No Exemption for Salaried Employees with income upto Rs 5 Lakh from filing IT return for A.Y. 2013-14

CBDT has vide its  press release dated 22.07.2013  clarified that exemption from filing return of income for salaried employees having total income upto Rs. 5 lakhs including income from other sources upto Rs. 10,000/- was only for assessment year 2011-12 and 2012-13 respectively.

These E-filed forms also get electronically processed at the central processing centre in a speedy manner. Hence, the exemption provided during the last two years is not being extended for assessment year 2013-14. Source : TaxGuru Visit us at

When we thought it was just the direct acts of strategic terrorism from our enemies operating within and from distant lands that we are facing, the booming IT industry and everyday improvising means and modes of communication and data transfer has opened new options for attacking and challenging the very existence of the greatest democracy in the world .
