    District Collector Siddarth Jain on Saturday flagged off the APSRTC city services in Chittoor.

    Inaugurating the Puthalapattu-Naraharipeta service at PCR College junction here, the Collector said that the city services would be of much help to students of colleges located on the outskirts and patients coming to the general hospital. He asked the RTC officials to initiate steps to introduce more number of services on other viable routes.

    APSRTC Deputy Chief Traffic Manager M.V. Krishna Rao told The Hindu that the city services were introduced on request from managements of various colleges in Puthalapattu, Chittoor, and Gudipala mandals.

    SRI launched to keep municipality clean
    RJBVSHI-W001_AR_08_2844783f.jpg

    Swachh Rajamahendravaram Initiative (SRI) was launched here on Saturday by city MLA Akula Satyanarayana and Municipal Commissioner V. Vijayaramaraju to keep the city clean and disease-free. Both of them started a machine which crushes tender coconuts, large size e-waste and other hard material.

    Speaking on this occasion, the MLA said that prevalence of vector-borne diseases was high in Rajamahendravaram as people were used to throwing plastic waste in drains like Nalla Channel.

    He said that the SRI is part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat programme and under this programme segregation of waste starts at source.


    They are taking up the programme with dry waste like plastic, bottles, broken toys, old tickets, used covers, aluminium waste, used paper plates, waste glasses, used tetra packs and other waste. “Every household should put this dry waste in a cloth bag supplied by us and more than 45 volunteers will collect the same with the support of municipal sanitary staff from apartments and houses. For every kilogram of waste, the SRI trust will pay Rs.3 to the house owners who segregate and give the dry waste,” the MLA said.

    The Municipal Commissioner said that the initiative would give a new dimension to the ongoing Swachh Bharat campaign in Rajamahendravaram and the civic body was ready to extend all support.

    The MLA announced that the Andhra Kesari Yuvajana Samithi has offered Rs.10,000 to SRI fund. The Ramdas Paper Boards has announced Rs. 20,000 and BEST promised Rs. 25,000 to the fund.

    Aadhaar, PAN must for cash purchase of gold
    Income Tax department holds awareness programme on new rules in Srikakulam
    The Income Tax department has asked gold traders to keep photo copies of the Aadhaar card or PAN card of customers for cash transactions. However, till they get ePoS machines, traders can also take other identity proofs for continuing the cash business.

    The Srikakulam Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Central organised an awareness programme for traders on demonetisation and the new rules and regulations of the Income Tax Department.

    Principal Commissioner of Income Tax Omkareswar expressed concern over the fraudulent activities of a few top jewellers on November 8 and 9. Business transactions worth Rs.700 crore were done in a couple of shops which had a yearly turnover of less than Rs.20 crore. “The gold merchants should not defeat the very purpose of the demonetisation. It is unfair to issue receipts showing transactions of up to Rs.1.9 lakh to avoid entry of PAN number which is a must for above Rs.2 lakh transactions,” he added.

    Rotary International Srikakulam wing president Natukula Mohan and Srikakulam Gold and Jewellery Merchants’ Association president Perla Samba Murthy asked the official to give more clarity on cash transactions as banks were yet to supply ePoS (electronic point of sale) machines. Mr. Omkareswar said the department would never create trouble to genuine traders. “The merchants should collect identity proof from customers if they want to make payments through cash only. Those who want to buy gold with white money will not hesitate to give the ID proof,” he added.

    Income details’ verification

    He said the department had powers to verify income details going back up to six years. “Many people think that the Income Tax department did not have the manpower and it cannot verify the sources at this juncture. We are empowered to check the details of income at any time in the stipulated six years,” he said.

    Additional Commissioner Ravi Shankar Narayan said the government had given ample opportunities for declaring untaxed income before announcing the demonetisation policy. People should avoid benami transactions since it would drag them into troubles.

    “People should not keep others’ money in their accounts since the department can verify their actual income sources at any time,” he added.

    Srikakulam Chamber of Commerce president Andhavarapu Varaha Narasimham and vice-president Korada Haragopal wanted the department to conduct such meetings in other towns to make people aware of the amendments made to the Income Tax rules. A few chartered accountants cleared their doubts over penalty procedure, cash limit in shops and investment procedures.
