அன்புத் தோழர்களே ! நமது  GDS ஊதியக்குழு  தொடர்பான  செய்திகள். 

 நமது ஊதியக்குழு திரு கம்லேஷ் சந்திரா தலைமையில் அமைக்கப்பட்டு கடந்த 24.11.2016 அன்று நமது இலாக்கா முதல்வருக்கு அளிக்கப்பட்டு விட்டது ஆனால் இது நாள் வரை அந்த அறிக்கையை அஞ்சல்துறை வலைதளத்தில் பிரசுரிக்கப்படவில்லை.

    இறுதியாக நமது மா.பொதுசெயலாளர் இலாக்கா முதல்வரை சந்தித்த பொழுது  நிச்சயமாக 31.12.2016 க்கு பிறகு அரசிடம் அனுமதி பெற்று அதற்க்கான நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கப்படும்  என உத்திரவாதம் அளித்துள்ளதாக நமக்கு தகவல் தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. பொறுப்போம் நல்லது நடக்க காத்திருப்போம் .

Please refer to Circular DCM (Plg) No.1226/10.27.00/2016-17 dated November 08, 2016 on the captioned subject. On a review of the provisions ii, iii and iv at C of Para 3 dealing with credit of the value of SBNs into bank accounts it has been decided to place certain restrictions on deposits of SBNs into bank accounts while encouraging the deposits of the same under the Taxation and Investment Regime for the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana, 2016 as indicated below:
  1. Tenders of SBNs in excess of ₹ 5000 into a bank account will be received for credit only once during the remaining period till December 30, 2016. The credit in such cases shall be afforded only after questioning tenderer, on record, in the presence of at least two officials of the bank, as to why this could not be deposited earlier and receiving a satisfactory explanation. The explanation should be kept on record to facilitate an audit trail at a later stage. An appropriate flag also should be raised in CBS to that effect so that no more tenders are allowed.
  2. Tenders of SBNs up to ₹ 5000 in value received across the counter will allowed to be credited to bank accounts in the normal course until December 30, 2016. Even when tenders smaller than ₹ 5000 are made in an account and such tenders taken together on cumulative basis exceed ₹ 5000 they may be subject to the procedure to be followed in case of tenders above ₹ 5000, with no more tenders being allowed thereafter until December 30, 2016.
  3. It may also be ensured that full value of tenders of SBNs in excess of ₹ 5000 shall be credited to only KYC compliant accounts and if the accounts are not KYC compliant credits may be restricted up to ₹ 50,000 subject to the conditions governing the conduct of such accounts.
  4. The above restrictions shall not apply to tenders of SBNs for the purpose of deposits under the Taxation and Investment Regime for the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana, 2016.
  5. The equivalent value of specified bank notes tendered may be credited to an account maintained by the tenderer at any bank in accordance with standard banking procedure and on production of valid proof of Identity.
  6. The equivalent value of specified bank notes tendered may be credited to a third party account, provided specific authorisation therefor accorded by the third party is presented to the bank, following standard banking procedure and on production of valid proof of identity of the person actually tendering, as indicated in Annex-5 of our circular cited above.
