Minimum wage hike for unskilled labourers 'historic': Jaitley
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said the "historic hike" in minimum wages to Rs 350/day is a step forward in transforming India and labour reforms. To appease trade unions, the government yesterday announced a 42 per cent increase in the minimum wages for unskilled non-agricultural workers to Rs 350 per day from the current Rs 246. Also, the government employees will be paid a wage bonus as per revised norms, for 2014-15 and 2015-16, a move that will entail a payout of Rs 1,920 crore. "Historic hike in minimum wages for unskilled non-agricultural workers to Rs 350/day is a step forward in Transforming India and labour reforms," Jaitley tweeted. The decision to pay bonus for years 2014-15 and 2015-16 on revised norms reiterates governments "commitment to work for the benefit of workers". Trade unions, which are demanding minimum monthly wage of Rs 18,000 per month or Rs 692 a day and base pension of Rs 3,000 a month have said however that they would go ahead with the day-long strike on September 2. The strike call is being supported by almost all major labour unions except RSS-affiliated BMS, and may impact banking and insurance services, power supplies and coal mining.

Central govt employees to get two years of pending bonus: Minister
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley announced that all Central Government employees would soon get their annual bonus that has been pending for the two last years. “The bonus entitlement for 2014-15 and 2015-16 will be released on the revised norms for Central Government employees. This was pending for two years. After this, the bonus will […]

Govt hikes minimum wage to Rs 350 a day as strike looms
The Centre on Tuesday hiked the minimum wage of unskilled industrial workers from Rs 246 to Rs 350 a day, but the move failed to mollify trade unions who have called a national strike on September 2. Announcing the decision at a press conference here, finance minister Arun Jaitley said the bonus for 2014-15 and 2015-16 would be paid to central government employees based on revised norms. The Bonus Amendment Act will be implemented "strictly", he added. Jaitley assured that the government will also take necessary steps to resolve the cases on payment of bonus pending in high courts and the Supreme Court. The likely financial implications of the bonus move translate into Rs 1,920 crore per annum. "In the last one-and-a-half years, the inter-ministerial committee had meeting with central trade unions. Trade unions placed various demands. Some were labour- related and some connected to economic policy issues. The government has taken some decisions with regard to those on the basis of their recommendations," added Jaitley. Power and coal minister Piyush Goyal and labour and employment minister Bandaru Dattatreya were also present on this occasion. Jaitley said it has been decided to fix the minimum wages at Rs 350 per day for unskilled non-agricultural workers for 'C' category areas, keeping in view the modalities of fixing minimum wages. The decision was taken following deliberations at the meeting of the minimum wage advisory board under the chairmanship of the labour minister for revising the basic minimum wages in the central sphere. The registration of contract workers and their staffing agencies is mandatory and states will be advised to strictly implement the same, the finance minister said. Jaitley warned that errant contractors would face appropriate action for any violation. The issue of giving social security benefit to the unorganised sector (like Anganwadi, mid-day meal, Asha volunteers) will be examined by a committee, which will give its report at the "earliest". Asked about the strike call, Jaitley said: "I think we have responsible trade unions." On the opposition to the government's plans to merge associate banks of SBI with the parent bank, Jaitley said, "the merger is not subject of trade unions". "Their service conditions are not being hurt adversely or affected at all. There will be no impact of merger on service conditions of any employee. If the government decides that we need strong banks, then unions would have to change their approach to the whole issue," he asserted. Dattatreya has held meetings with central trade unions wherein detailed discussions were held with regard to their charter of demands. As many as 10 central trade unions have given a call for a one-day pan-India strike on September 2, to protest against the government's labour reforms and "not paying heed to their demands". Explaining further, Dattatreya said an amendment in the Minimum Wage Act is required for fixing a universal minimum wage and an initiative has been taken in this direction. Apart from increasing the minimum wage, government has also decided to pay bonus for 2014-15 and 2015-16 to central government employees based on the revised norms, which will have an annual financial implication of Rs 1,920 crore. It has also assured that the amendment in the payment of Bonus Act will be implemented strictly and it will support the cause of unions in high courts and the Supreme Court. noor.mohammad@mydigitalfc.com

"The bonus entitlement for 2014-15 and 2015-16 will be released on the revised norms for central Government employees. This was pending for two years. After this, the bonus will be covered under the 7th Pay Commission," Jaitley told a press conference. Around 33 lakh employees of the Central Government will be benefitted by this decision.

European Union orders Apple to pay up to 13 billion euros tax
The European Union on Tuesday ordered Apple to pay a record 13 billion euros ($14.5 billion) in back taxes in Ireland, saying deals allowing the US tech giant to pay almost no tax were illegal. The European Commission has concluded that Ireland granted undue tax benefits of up to 13 billion euros to Apple. This is illegal under EU state aid rules because it allowed Apple to pay substantially less tax than other businesses. Ireland must now recover the illegal aid, a Commission statement said. EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said Apples selective treatment in Ireland meant it paid an effective tax rate of just one percent on its European profits in 2003, which then fell to a bare 0.005 percent by 2014. Apple and the Irish government immediately said they would appeal against the European Commission ruling, while the US Treasury said it could undermine its economic partnership with the EU. Reacting to the order, Apple chief Tim Cook warned the ruling threatened jobs and investment in Europe. Apple is now in the unusual position of being asked to pay taxes to a government that says they are not due, he said. Ireland too is an unusual situation of refusing to accept cash, which is equivalent to around five per cent of its gross domestic product as it. This ruling could affect Irelands policy of attracting multinational companies by offering extremely favourable tax conditions, known as sweetheart deals.

Singur land case: Setback for Tata Motors after SC quashes land acquisition deal
In a major setback for Tata Motors, the Supreme Court today set aside a land acquisition in Bengals Singur district, initiated by the Left government in 2006 to facilitate the companys setting up its Nano car manufacturing plant. Earlier in May this year, Justices Gopala Gowda and AK Mishra had heard the Tatas, the Bengal government and the aggrieved farmers of Singurs pleas and had reserved their judgement. Reportedly, during the hearing, Justice Gowda had mentioned that agricultural land can be acquired for industry, but it is better to avoid the use of mutli-crop producing land for such an activity. What was the Singur controversy? The controversy began with the land acquisition of the proposed Nano factory of Tata Motors at Singur in 2006. The state government (then ruled by the Left) sparked a row by using the 1894 Land Acquisition Act rule to conduct an eminent domain takeover of 997 acres of farmland to have Tata build its factory. The rule was meant for public improvement projects and the West Bengal government wanted Tata to build in its state. The project was opposed by activists and Opposition parties in Bengal. Soon after coming to power in 2011, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee passed a law to take over the land and forced the Tatas to move their project out of the state, to Gujarats Sanad district. Tata Motors moved the Calcutta High Court, challenging the law. The land acquisition was upheld by a trial court and the law passed by the Trinamool Congress-led state government was declared unconstitutional on appeal. Thereafter, the dispute moved to the Supreme Court. -With inputs from PTI

Finding fault with the land acquisition process, the court said that the acquired land be returned to the cultivators within 12 weeks from Wednesday. The court also observed that the land acquisition collector has not properly conducted the inquiry into the complaints of cultivators with regard to acquisition of plots. In May this year, Justices Gopala Gowda and Arun Kumar Mishra had heard the pleas of the Tatas, the Bengal government and the aggrieved farmers of Singur and had reserved their judgement.

AP A van driven by a suicide bomber exploded after ramming through a gate at the Chinese embassy in Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday, injuring three people, authorities said. As a result of the explosion, only the suicide bomber terrorist died. Security guards were injured, Kyrgyzstans deputy prime minister Jenish Razakov said. Mr Razakov said the three wounded were all Kyrgyz employees of the embassy and were hospitalised. Local medics said their injuries were not serious. Impoverished majority-Muslim Kyrgyzstan which borders western China has a history of political instability and battling Islamist extremism. Authorities say the country faces the threat of attacks from Islamic State group jihadists after some 500 Kyrgyz left to fight for the group in Iraq and Syria. Chinese officials have previously been targeted in attacks linked to radicals from Chinas Uighur minority, which lives just across the border in the restive Xinjiang province. Law enforcement sources said that a Mitsubishi Delica van smashed through a gate at the embassy on Tuesday morning before exploding at the centre of the compound close to the ambassadors residence. A police source confirmed that the vehicle was driven by a suicide bomber and described the incident as a terrorist attack. Chinas foreign ministry condemned the attack as an extreme and violent act but refused to classify it as terrorism. We asked the Kyrgyz side to get to the bottom of this incident and hold whoever is behind this accountable, spokeswoman Hua Chunying said. Kyrgyz officials have not yet blames any specific group, and President Almazbek Atambayev ordered a thorough investigation. Sources said body parts thought to be of the attacker were found several hundred metres (yards) from the blast site. Locals said the blast had blown in their windows and caused their houses to shake. Pictures posted on social media purporting to be from the embassy showed a gate smashed open and debris inside the compound. Law enforcement officials also blocked traffic on one of the citys main highways and were checking vehicles. Employees from the Chinese and nearby American embassy on the edge of the city were evacuated, the Kyrgyz emergency service said. An economically troubled ally of Russia, Kyrgyzstan has seen two governments overthrown and ethnic violence since it gained independence in 1991.
