A firecrackers factory is located nearby my house. The exhaust from the factory is polluting air and the toxic foul smell of ethenol coming out of the industry is very unpleasant. The smell fills the rooms of my house and sometimes makes it difficult to stay inside. Factory is located at a distance of about 500 meters from my house. It was established about 2 years ago while I am living here since birth. There are 7 or 8 Houses nearby the factory , 3 are located at a distance of less than 50 meters. I want to know whether is it legally permitted to establish such "category 3" factories so close to residential areas? If not then can I take this matter to the court , and what can I do to get rid of this bad smell from the factory? Thank you

I had worked in an SSI unit for 10 years as a COMPETENT PERSON certified by the Govt. of West Bengal. My last drawn salary was Rs.7000/- per month. Please confirm whether I can claim from my employer Gratuity payment. If yesy, how much I can claim.
Share this questionShare Icon

A. Dear Sir, As the definition of continuous service in Industrial Dispute Act and Payment of Gratuity Act are synonymous, the same principal can be adopted under the act also and hence an employee rendering service of 4 year 10months 11days is considered to have completed 5 years continuous service under sec.4(2) For full procedure contact me on mobile through Vidhikarya.

i have been asked to go on personal leave till inquiry completed and issued Charge sheet under Company Certified Standing Order . Though there is provision of subsistence allowance in CSO. The standing order is applicable to all kind of employee in the Organisation. I little confused that if worker is Charge sheeted under suspended pending enquiry, and he is being paid subsistence allowance but executive who charged under same standing order and has been asked to go on leave till enquiry completed on verbal instruction, will not be eligible subsistence allwonace legally. will it not be discrimination. I shall be grateful to you for providing me valuable advice & relevant case law in the matter.
Share this questionShare Icon

A. Dear Client, Please have a look An Employee Is Entitled To Subsistence Allowance Pending Inquiry: SC [Read Judgment] BY: APOORVA MANDHANI16 FEB 2018 3:53 PM The Supreme Court, on Thursday, ruled that an employee is entitled to subsistence allowance pending inquiry against him, opining that denial of financial resources would amount to depriving him of an opportunity to defend himself. The Bench comprising Justice M.B. Lokur and Justice Deepak Gupta observed, "An employee is entitled to subsistence allowance during an inquiry pending against him or her but if that employee is starved of finances by zero payment, it would be unreasonable to expect the employee to meaningfully participate in a departmental inquiry. Access to justice is a valuable right available to every person, even to a criminal, and indeed free legal representation is provided even to a criminal. In the case of a departmental inquiry, the delinquent is at best guilty of a misconduct but that is no ground to deny access to pension (wherever applicable) or subsistence allowance (wherever applicable)." The Court was hearing an Appeal filed by UCO Bank, which had initiated disciplinary proceedings against its employee, Mr Rajendra Shankar Shukla for dishonor of cheque. The bank had alleged that Mr Shukla had "failed to discharge his duties with utmost integrity and honesty". The Apex Court, however, agreed with the view taken by the High Court that in case a cheque issued by a bank employee is dishonored, action may be taken by the complainant under the provisions of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881. Such an act would not amount to a misconduct within the purview of the UCO Bank Officer Employees' (Conduct) Regulations, 1976, it ruled. It further noted that Mr. Shukla was denied pension as well as subsistence allowance during the pendency of the inquiry, which prevented him from effectively participating in the disciplinary inquiry. The Court then rapped the bank for filing the Appeal and imposed costs of Rs. 1 lakh on it, observing, "However, we must observe that the learned Single Judge had held against the Bank and the Division Bench also held against the Bank. Notwithstanding this, the Bank preferred this appeal. The appeal was preferred despite at least two decisions delivered by this Court making the legal position clear. The Bank would have been well-advised to follow the law laid down by this Court rather than unnecessarily litigate against an employee who has superannuated. We have no doubt that Shukla must have spent a considerable amount in litigation. Accordingly, while dismissing the appeal, we impose costs of Rs. 1 lakh which will be paid to Shukla within 4 weeks from today towards his legal expenses." Shanti Ranjan Behera Advocate

Hi.I worked in a company from 01-04-2017 to 06-08- 2018. For Financial year 2017-18 Company deducted TDS on my salary but didn't deposit it to the government, hence not issuing 'Form 16'. My 'Form 26 AS' also has no TDS credit for FY 17-18.I have pay slips as a proof that company had deducted TDS .At present I am not working in the company . so I want to know what is the legal remedy I have to recover from them so that I can file the IT return and I don't get demand notice from income tax department.
Share this questionShare Icon

A. Dear Client, You need to know the following: TDS deducted but not deposited: As it may happen, your employer may have deducted the tax from your salary but has failed to deposit the same against your PAN with the government. ... However, the tax deducted during the year (as shown in the TDS certificate) must also reflect in the department's record in Form 26AS. What happens if TDS is not deposited by Employer? No demand on taxpayer if TDS deducted but not deposited by deductor. When your employer or any other deductor deducts TDS from your salary/income they must deposit it to the income tax department against your PAN. Hapless taxpayers write to Income Tax Department of Government of India asking what to do when TDS is deducted but not deposited by the employer. If TDS not reflected in 26AS As a result, TDS is not reflected in Form 26AS. This is a common scenario in banks where depositors do not provide their PAN and their TDS is deducted when the interest amount crosses Rs 10,000. In such cases you have to: Contact the deductor to file the TDS return if the deductor has not yet filed. After meeting the Income Tax Officer, just let me know the ourcome.
