ShareShare on StumbleUponShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on LinkedInEmail this to someonePin on Pinterest

After the successful demonetization activity which was primarily implemented to curb black money, control terrorism activities,  government has now made Aadhaar card mandatory in the following banking & income tax related purposes to further make life of tax offenders miserable.

New account opening: Whether you want to open a savings or current account, providing Aadhaar card number will be mandatory for the new applicants.

Existing bank account holders: Before December 2017, all the existing bank account holders will have to provide their 12 digit Aadhaar card number to the bank. Failure in doing so will make your bank account invalid.

Financial transaction above Rs. 50, 000: Until now for high value transactions above Rs. 50, 000; PAN card was must. However moving forward, Aadhaar number will be required for making any national or international money transfer for the amount above Rs. 50, 000.

Income Tax Returns: Until now individuals with income below the taxable limit were not required to file IT returns. And whether or not such individuals had PAN and Aadhaar card did not matter. However as per the government rule announced on 15Jun2017; any individual having PAN and Aadhaar card will have to link both these identity cards, whether or not income tax is filed or not by them. If this is not done (before the yet to be announced date), then permanent account number (PAN) card will become invalid. If Aadhaar number is not available then Aadhaar enrollment ID will be required.

Anyone having PAN card as on 01July2017, but eligible to get Aadhar card will have to notify IT department.

This is as per the section 139AA of the Act.

PAN card application: Any individual applying for a PAN card after 01 July 2017, will be required to quote 12 digit Aadhaar card number or Aadhaar enrollment ID.

ShareShare on StumbleUponShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on LinkedInEmail this to someonePin on Pinterest

With an objective of providing unique identity to every Indian, Aadhaar card was launched in 2009. The project is implemented by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). The benefits of Aadhaar are many and especially poor people can get benefits from the following (there are many):

  • Jan Dhan Yojana, cooking gas subsidy
  • Healthcare schemes such as RSBY, Janashri Bima Yojana, Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana
  • Social security schemes
  • Food and nutrition schemes such as mid-day meals, food security

We’ll now explore how having Aadhaar card will help you in financial transactions apart from the above listed ones:

  • Buy Insurance Policy: Submitting KYC documents is not required. For buying policy, visit the insurance company website and select the online policy. Then enter all the required details. After entering Aadhaar number, some of your personal information will be fetched automatically and displayed on the screen. You can then buy insurance policy online without submitting physical copies of KYC documents.
  • E-verifying income tax: By doing this, there won’t be a need to file Income tax return verification form physically to the Income tax department office in Bengaluru. This is for the individuals with Aadhaar card verified by the electronic verification certification (EVC) system. For doing this:
  1. You will have to link Aadhaar and PAN on the income tax website: www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in.
  2. Go to e-filed returns and choose form, click on e-Verify
  3. Next step is generating Aadhaar OTP for verifying return
  4. Once you receive an OTP, you can complete the remaining process.

The existing option of sending ITR-V form manually to the IT department is time consuming. And with Aadhaar linking, time will be saved as verification will be done electronically.

  • Mutual funds investment: With Aadhaar it is possible to invest online when PAN card is not KYC compliant. For doing this, individual needs to visit KYC registration agency website and provide required details such as PAN card, asset management company name, details of bank account through which funds transaction will take place. Provide Aadhaar card number and 10 digit mobile phone number. System will send OTP on this mobile. Enter this OTP on Aadhaar authentication section of the website, upload attested copy of e-Aadhaar. You can also perform this process on the website of mutual fund company.

Reactivate, Inoperative/Dormant Bank Account: Documents, FAQs

ShareShare on StumbleUponShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on LinkedInEmail this to someonePin on Pinterest

What is an inoperative/dormant bank account?

Any account (savings or current) in which there is no transaction for a period of two straight years is considered as inoperative account. In such kind of dormant account, no further transactions can be carried out by the account holder as per RBI’s rule.

There could be many reasons why an account can become inoperative:

  • Person holds too many account and forgets to use.
  • Account holder is out of country and feels no need to make the use of account in India. OR
  • No longer uses the bank’s service but continues to keep the account. OR
  • Passes away and their legal heirs are not aware of his/her bank account
  • Goes missing

But what if the account holder wants to re-activate the account? Is it possible?

Answer is YES. And here’s how:

File a written application: Once you confirm that your account has become inoperative, contact the bank’s branch manager and make a written application. Ideally bank’s have a standard application format for account reactivation requiring following fields:

  • Whether application is made by self/nominee/legal hier/others
  • Name of the deposit holder
  • Communication address
  • Signature
  • Address
  • Contact number

You will need to request for revalidation. Along with this, you also need to provide the reason for keeping the account inactive. Banks, in return, will provide acknowledgement slip consisting of seal and signature of the bank.

In case, you hold joint account, the signature of the other person would also be required.

But before starting the process of reactivation, contact the customer care of the respective bank and collect all the required details/steps for activating the account. Doing this, will save your time and the inoperative account will become active fast. Only in case of NRI, reactivation request via online facility is taken into consideration.

Documents required to activate the inoperative bank account:

All know your customer (KYC) documents as mentioned below has to be re-submitted:

  • Address proof: Driving license, latest utility bills, passport and others
  • ID proof
  • Passport sized photograph

Documents required might slightly vary for each bank but banks scrutinize all the details to make sure fraudulent activity is not happening. But documents required would mostly be the same as mentioned above. Some banks may also ask to surrender old ATM cards and cheque book.

Once all the processes are done, your account will become active within 6-7 working days.

What to do after your account becomes active?

The very first thing to do is make some kind of transaction. You can either deposit some money into the account or transfer fund to someone.

Is there any charge for account activation?

As per RBI’s guidelines, banks are not allowed to charge money to activate the inoperative account.

If minimum balance is not maintained, what is the penalty fee?

Banks are also not allowed to charge minimum balance penalty.

What if fixed deposit interest is still getting credited. Does the account still become inoperative?

Answer is NO. But the condition is that the interest should get credited on a regular basis.

Does account holder loses the interest accrued on saving account?

Answer is NO. The interest earned on savings account will continue to get credited irrespective of whether the account is active/inoperative.

What if dividend cheque is credited into the account in two years?

In such a case, account will not considered inoperative if dividend gets credited in the savings bank account.

What happens to the dormant account in case of account holder’s death?

Legal heir needs to contact bank for settling the claim. Banks will then follow rules and regulations.

What is account holder goes missing or his whereabouts could not be traced?

Banks will then approach the referring person who introduced the person to open the account or contact the employer or any person whose details are available in the bank’s record.

During inoperative period, can the account holder use ATM/cheque/internet banking facility?

Answer is NO.

How to know whether the account is inoperative?

In order to validate whether the account is really inoperative or not, account holder should visit bank’s website and search whether the account is inoperative. Ideally every bank is expected to maintain record of every bank account which has become inactive. Here’s how to search whether the account is inactive or not on the website of prominent Indian bank’s:

State Bank of India
ICICI Bank
HDFC Bank
Canara Bank

Suggestion: If you do not wish to continue using the account then it is best recommended to close it.

Financial Inclusion Schemes: PMSBY, PMJJBY, PMJDY, SSA, APY, Suraksha Bandhan Scheme

ShareShare on StumbleUponShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on LinkedInEmail this to someonePin on Pinterest

Over last one year, government has launched various flagship social security schemes with an objective of broadening financial inclusion in India. This was done to make financial services such as banking, insurance, and others available to the Indian citizens especially from the low & middle class category at an affordable cost and make them financially secure. And lots of efforts are being taken to increase the subscribers under each of these schemes. So let’s check out the various financial inclusion schemes in the form of insurance, pension, savings account and others which were launched:

Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana:

Considered to be the cheapest accidental death cum disability insurance policy with an annual premium of just Rs. 12, it has received a massive positive response from most of the Indians. Although the insurance cover is small which is Rs. 2, 00, 000 for accidental death and Rs. 1, 00, 000 for partial disability but considering the fact that nearly 80% of the country’s population do not have any insurance, the scheme has evoked a very good response as it will further increase the insurance penetration to the remotest locations of India. Till now, due to high annual premium by private insurance companies not everyone was able to buy policy. But this has become possible with Suraksha Bima. Get to know the details of PMSBY.

Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana:

Similar to PMSBY, PMJJBY is also the cheapest life insurance policy with an annual premium of Rs. 330 and moreover it does not require medical examination. The cover offered under the yojana is Rs. 2, 00, 000 and the termination of policy takes place after the policy holder reaches the age of 55 years.

Objective of both PMJJBY and PMSBY is to provide financial security to the family of policy holder in an event of his/her death.

Atal Pension Yojana:

This pension scheme was launched with a sole purpose of providing pension to the workers from unorganized sector after the retirement to meet their daily needs. Contribution can be done monthly/quarterly/every 6 month and equal amount will be contributed by the government of India with an option to prematurely exit from the scheme before the age of 60 years. Pension amount receivable would be in the range of Rs. 1,000-Rs.5, 000. Detailed information on APY is available here.

Jeevan Suraksha Bandhan Yojana:

This scheme is a Raksha Bandhan gift and is launched with an objective to drive PMSBY and PMJJBY. Through this yojana, brothers can gift social security schemes to their sisters by purchasing gift card worth Rs. 351 and deposit scheme worth Rs. 201 which will be used for making the premium payment for Suraksha Bima Yojana and Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana. Apart from this, term deposit scheme worth Rs. 5001 can also be taken which will serve two purposes – premium payment for PMSBY and PMJJBY for the first year and remaining money would be investment for term deposit for 10 years. Read details of Suraksha Bandhan Yojana.

Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana:

Opening zero balance saving account for every unbanked Indian household was the main objective behind the launch of PMJDY. Overdraft facility of Rs. 5,000 is also available provided the account is kept active for 6 months after opening. Some banks are also opening account to existing customers whereas majority of them have restricted to only those with no bank account. Explore features of PMJDY.

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana:

With a mission to secure the financial future of the girl child, this small savings scheme SSA – was launched under the Beti Padhao Beti Bachao initiative. For the current year i.e. 2015-2016, the interest rate offered is 9.2%. For e.g. in this scheme if you invest Rs. 20,000 for 14 years, the maturity amount will be Rs. 10, 67, 528 (assuming 9.2% interest). Check out table containing investment amount and maturity amount for SSA.

Parents or local guardians can open account in the name of the girl child at post offices or various banks designated by Reserve Bank of India. Moreover the interest income and investments are eligible for tax deduction under section 80C of Indian income tax act, 1961 and the scheme matures once the girl child reaches the age of 21 years. For opening the account, initial deposit of Rs. 1,000 has to be made. And next year onwards, deposit can be made for amount ranging from Rs. 100 to Rs. 1, 50, 000. Premature withdrawal is possible only when girl gets married before the maturity. The interest rate would be declared by the government every year. When the scheme was launched in the year 2014-2015, the interest offered was 9.1%.

It is now our duty to further spread the awareness of these schemes so that Indians located in remotest places can get basic access to financial services at an affordable rate.
