Pakistan: Army chief tours front as refugees flee

Peshawar, 14 May (AKI) - Pakistani army chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani on Thursday toured the army frontlines in the northwest Swat valley, where troops are fighting Taliban militants. The army chief met field commanders and troops and observed operations being carried out against the militants, the army said in a statement.It was Kayani's first reported visit to the area, which has been hard hit by a two-year Taliban insurgency aimed at enforcing a strict interpretation of Islamic or sharia law, since the military launched a massive operation in the district last week.Artillery shelled suspected hideouts in Swat and the neighbouring district of Lower Dir on Thursday, but there were no immediate reports of new casualties on the 18th consecutive day of operations in the northwest.The military said up to 15,000 troops are fighting an estimated 4,000 well-armed fighters in Swat, where Islamabad is committed to wiping out extremists.Meanwhile, the United Nations' refugee agency said on Thursday a total of 834,000 civilians have now fled the recent fighting between Pakistani government forces and the Taliban in the northwest of the country.The figure rose by more than 163,000 since Wednesday, as desperate families climbed onto trucks and tractors, or fled on foot from the three worst-affected districts to hastily set up camps."Some 834,000 IDPs (internally displaced people) have been registered so far. This is a massive, massive displacement in the world today," said UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres."Pakistan is passing through a difficult period. The international community should come forward and help Pakistan. I cannot give a figure, but they need a lot of help," he added as he toured the Yar Hussain camp in Swabi district.The massive number of refugees join another 500,000 people who have fled previous bouts of fighting in the northwest last year, according to the UN.With more than 1.3 million people displaced, Human Rights Watch has warned that Pakistan is facing its biggest movement of people since the partition of India in 1947.

Pakistan readies assault on Taliban in Swat town


MINGORA, Pakistan (AP) — The Pakistan army readied a major assault to rid the main town in the Swat Valley of entrenched Taliban militants, who the military said were shaving their beards in order to mingle undetected with fleeing civilians.
The dusty streets of Mingora were mostly empty on Friday — one resident said some unidentified bodies lay unburied there. The government relaxed a curfew to allow thousands of refugees to leave with whatever possessions they could carry ahead of what is expected to be bloody fighting.
An Associated Press reporter saw four armed Taliban on the edge of town, a little more than a mile from an army checkpoint. The army and witnesses have said the militants have dug trenches and laid mines to repel an assault.
Pakistan began operations in the valley and surrounding districts last month following intense U.S. pressure for action against extremists eroding the stability of the nuclear-armed state and attacking American troops in neighboring Afghanistan.
Early Saturday, a suspected U.S. missile strike killed at least four people in the North Waziristan region, a stronghold of the Taliban and al-Qaida on the Afghan border, Pakistani intelligence officials said.
The identities of the dead were not immediately known, the officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly to the media.
U.S. officials says al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden is probably hiding in Pakistan's border region.
The Swat offensive is shaping up as a major test of the will and ability of the often-criticized army to defeat the militants. The extremists fought the military to a stalemate in the valley last year, forcing the country's embattled politicians into a short-lived peace process.
In other regions near the Afghan border, the typically outnumbered insurgents have avoided such conventional battles with the military and melted away into the mountains only to reappear several months later — an outcome that some analysts say is possible this time as well.
The operation was launched after the militants pushed out from Swat to seize a district just 60 miles from the capital, Islamabad, under cover of the since-collapsed peace process. The advance alarmed Washington and many Pakistanis who had previously believed they could negotiate with the militants.
The military said it has killed more than 800 of the estimated 4,000 militants in the region, but the fighting has triggered an exodus of at least 900,000 people, creating a humanitarian crisis that risks undercutting public support for the offensive.
"Wherever the terrorists are present, they need to be eliminated completely," said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, information minister of Northwest Frontier Province. Until last month, he was the leading advocate of moves to make peace with the insurgents.
The army said that in the last 24 hours, it has "achieved success in various areas of Swat" and to have killed 55 more fighters, with the loss of three soldiers. Like much of the information provided by authorities, there was no way to verify those tolls independently.
The army has not given any figures on civilian causalities, but refugees from the region have reported several deaths. Fleeing resident Ismail Khan said he had seen bodies lying in some of the streets of the fast-emptying town but didn't know if they were militants, civilians or soldiers.
The army lifted its curfew in Mingora for eight hours and urged the remaining residents to flee "so that security forces can take the militants to task in street-to-street fighting," army spokesman Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas said.
Columns of cars, trucks and horse-drawn carts packed with people and bundles of possessions streamed out of the town. Some picked their way past bombed-out government buildings and burned-out civilian vehicles along the crowded and cratered main highway. Others took dirt roads through the fields and mountains.
Many went south on foot with only the clothes on their backs.
"We do not know where we are going," said Muhammad Ismail Khan, who had been unable to find a ride for himself and nine relatives. "We do not know if we will ever be able to come back."
Of the 900,000 who have abandoned Swat, 80,000 are in government camps just south of the war zone.
In a statement, the military said militants were shaving off their beards and cutting their hair — flowing locks were fashionable among the Swat Taliban — in order to escape by mingling with the refugees pouring out of the valley. Authorities have placed security at the camps and say they are trying to stop any militants infiltrating them.
The army says it is advancing slowly to limit civilian casualties. Public opinion appears to support the offensive, but the mood could quickly turn against the pro-Western government if the fighting drags on and civilian hardship mounts.
While insisting it will win in Swat, Pakistan's army complains of a lack of equipment, including night-vision technology and helicopters — shortcomings that Washington has pledged to address.
U.S. forces are already training a Pakistani paramilitary force in the frontier region, considered the likely hiding place of al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden.
A senior U.S. defense official said the Pentagon was considering plans to accelerate and expand that training.
U.S. and Pakistani officials are discussing a program that would increase the number of U.S. special operations trainers in the country and expand the schooling to the regular army, said the senior official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions are preliminary and no decisions have been made.
Associated Press writers Ishtiaq Mahsud in Dera Ismail Khan, Munir Ahmad in Islamabad, and Lolita C. Baldor in Washington contributed to this report. An AP reporter in Mingora who also contributed was not identified for security reasons.

Traders protest against sales tax officials

March, 31st 2009
The traders of the city expressed their ire against what they called discriminatory VAT (Value Added Tax) and raised slogans. They were also critical of the corruption prevailing in the sales tax department and the anti-trader stance being adopted by the officers of the department.
The traders of the city under the banner of Sarv Samaj Udyog Vyapar Mandal reached the sales tax office and started shouting slogans. Addressing the members, president of Vyapari Kalyan Samiti, Satish Chandra Kesarwani said the entire trading community has become exasperated due to the slow working of the sales tax department. He said the anti-trader policy being pursued by the officials of the sales tax department has affected the business of traders in the city. He added that despite the numerous staging of dharna, demonstrations, no action is being taken by administration to provide any relief to traders from the arbitrary functioning of officials.
Another traders' leader said that unless the anomalies in the VAT were not removed and exploitation of traders was not stopped, their struggle would continue.

Delhi govt to consider sales tax cut on ATF: CM

January, 16th 2009
The Delhi government would consider reducing sales tax on jet fuel as was being sought by the cash-strapped airline industry, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said on Friday.
Her comments came at a seminar on aviation when Kingfisher Airlines chief Vijay Mallya urged her to consider reducing the tax on aviation turbine fuel to four per cent -- a demand backed by Civil Aviation Secretary M Madhavan Nambiar, who was also present.
"I am not promising you anything. But let me see how we can help you. I have been informed that the (tax has been reduced in Mumbai, Hyderabad and some other places). I will try to do that but let me see how we can do it," Dikshit said in an impromptu response.
Some such steps were required to be taken as Delhi had become a hub for international passengers and enjoyed a high load of domestic air traffic, the Chief Minister said.
The current sales tax on ATF is 20 per cent in Delhi, which accounts for almost 25 per cent of the total passenger traffic in India. The airlines do almost 20 per cent of the total fuel tankering from the national capital and industry sources believe this could rise to 25 per cent or more if the tax rates are slashed.
The Delhi government had last year asked airlines to give a detailed note on how much fuel intake would rise if the taxes were reduced. The prime concern of the state government is to see that its revenue generation potential is not affected by the tax cut.

Biz body pleads tax concession

January, 02nd 2009
Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) requested the state government to defer the payment of advance of sales tax in view of global economic recession.
SCCI officials said they have also requested chief minister Shibu Soren and finance minister Stephen Marandi to take measures to save the industrialists in the region. “At present, the industrialists won’t be able to pay advance sales tax to the department. We are reeling from crisis, so it is almost impossible for us to pay advance sales tax,” said SCCI vice-president Suresh Sonthalia.
He said there were about 800 industrial units in the region dependent on the big industries operating in the region. More than 70 per cent of the industrial units are Tata Motors’ ancillary. These units have taken a hit due to the slump in the demand of heavy vehicles.
“Now, the bigger industrial units have extended the credit limit of 60 days to 90 days. It means the suppliers are getting their payment after a gap of three months,” said a member of SCCI.
According to him, the suppliers were required to pay their sales tax due each month. “We want that in view of sudden economic downturn, the state government should provide us at least 60 days time to pay the sales tax dues,” said Sonthalia.
Moreover, the SCCI in its letter to the government demanded similar relief on payment of electricity dues.
“Jharkhand State Electricity Board levied penalty on the defaulter industrial units. We have requested the government to ensure that this penalty is exempted and we are provided some relive in this crisis situation,” added Sonthalia.

Plan to cut sales tax on jet fuel may be delayed

December, 23rd 2008
Airlines may have to wait for some more time before they get cheaper fuel through a lower sales tax levy, as the government has decided to put on hold the proposal to grant a declared goods status to aviation turbine fuel (ATF). A government official told ET that Prime Minister’s Office is not in favour of the move for now. Classification of ATF as a “declared good” would have reduced the sales tax on it to a lower uniform rate of 4% in all states against the varying 12-23% at present. Fuel typically accounts for nearly 50% of the operating costs of airlines. This is much higher than that in other countries, largely because of high sales tax levied by states. Following the PMO directive, the department of revenue has put on hold the proposal to grant declared goods status to ATF through an ordinance. Declared goods status can be granted only through an amendment in the law, which has to be ratified by the Parliament. However, when Parliament is not is session, the government can bring an ordinance to make a new law or make changes in existing law. The ordinance has to be subsequently approved by the parliament or it lapses. The current session of the Parliament ends on Tuesday. The department of revenue had done the groundwork for the ordinance, including moving a cabinet note, following a recommendation by the committee of secretaries which was constituted to look into the problems of the airline industry. The proposal was also backed by the civil aviation ministry. However, the state governments are completely opposed to the idea of a declared goods status to ATF as it brings them significant revenues. They are likely to take up the issue with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who is now handling the finance ministry portfolio. At the last meeting of the empowered committee of state finance ministers, panel chairman Asim Dasgupta had said: “States are opposed to the move (giving declared goods status) as it would cause them substantial loss of revenue. We will be writing to the Prime Minister on the issue asking him not to take any unilateral decision especially now when ATF prices have come down,” he had said. Airline companies are resisting any reduction in fares despite a fall in fuel prices. They have argued that because of the accumulated losses, it is difficult for them to cut fares. However, if ATF were given a declared goods status they were willing to consider a price cut. Airline companies had made a cumulative loss of about Rs 4,000 crore in 2007-08. A combination of high fuel prices earlier this year and declining traffic is expected to cause the losses to more than double in 2008-09.

Reduction of sales Tax on Petro-Products

December, 17th 2008
International prices of crude oil and petroleum products have remained volatile in the recent past. The Indian basket of crude oil, which averaged $79.25 per bbl during 2007-08 had gone up to $120.91 per barrel in May’08. It touched an all time high of $142.04 on 3.7.2008. In order to deal with huge under-recoveries of OMCs on sale of sensitive petroleum products, the Government had marginally increased the retail selling prices of Petrol, Diesel and Domestic LPG by Rs.5/- per litre, Rs.3/- per litre and Rs. 50/- per 14.2 kg. cylinder respectively with effect from 5.6.2008. In order to cushion the burden of the price hike on Petrol, Diesel and Domestic LPG effected on 5th June 2008, an appeal was made to the State Governments to moderate the State Taxes and to begin with, at least forego the incremental tax on the said increase on Petrol and Diesel prices. Based on this appeal, several State Governments like West Bengal, Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Goa, Assam and Uttaranchal have reduced Sales Tax on Petrol and Diesel. The State Governments of Tamil Nadu, Haryana and Jharkhand have reduced Sales Tax on Diesel and the Union Territory of Chandigarh has reduced Sales Tax on Petrol. In addition, the State Governments of Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat, Haryana, Uttaranchal and Uttar Pradesh as well as the Union Territory of Chandigarh have abolished the VAT on Domestic LPG. State Governments of Delhi and Andhra Pradesh have also provided State subsidy on Domestic LPG. This was stated by the Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Shri Dinsha Patel in a written reply to a question by Shri Rajkumar Dhoot, Member of Parliament in the Rajya Sabha today.

March, 03rd 2009
Gujarat government-owned seven public sector units (PSUs) owe Rs 108.25 crore as sales tax as on June 30, 2008, said the state government.
In last two years as on June 30, 2008, these seven PSUs paid Rs 346.48 crore as sales tax while Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation (GMDC) has paid highest sales tax of Rs 298.31 crore, the government said in a written reply to one unstarred questioned asked by independent MLA Ranchhod Mer.

SC exempts lottery tickets from sales tax

February, 19th 2009
The Supreme Court has held that lottery tickets are not goods and thus are not liable for sales tax.
Dismissing a couple of appeals by the Kerala government demanding sales tax on lottery tickets, a bench headed by Justice Arijit Pasayat said that lottery tickets are not goods attracting sales tax as they are a mere piece of paper and have no value by themselves.
According to it, a lottery ticket is nothing more than a token representing a right to a conditional benefit of winning a prize.
"A lottery ticket has no value in itself. It is a mere piece of paper. Its value lies in the fact that it represents a chance or a right to a conditional benefit of winning a prize . It is nothing more than a token or evidence of this right," the apex court observed.
The court said there can be no doubt that on purchasing a lottery ticket, the purchaser would have a claim to a conditional interest in the prize money which was not in his possession.

Govt cannot claim precedence over properties of ST defaulter: HC

March, 03rd 2009
The Tamil Nadu government cannot claim precedence over properties of a sales tax defaulter who has secured bank finance unless the Sales Tax Act had a specific Provision creating first charge (first call on Property) in favour of the government, the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court ruled on Monday.
Justice Chitra Venkataraman, allowing a writ petition by the Tamil Nadu Mercantile Bank challenging a notice issued by the Commercial Tax department to hand over sale proceeds of a property said "Rajasthan and Maharashtra have enactments containing a specific provision creating first charge in favour of the Government. The Tamilnadu General Sales Tax Act, 1959, does not contain such an enactment."
She said the state's claim had to subserve that of the secured creditor (Bank or any other financial institution), which had the first claim over the state.
She said the Commercial taxes department had initiated proceedings against the Jewellery exporter under the revenue recovery act and attached his property for deaulting sales tax of Rs 80.72 lakh between 1993-98.
The attachment was published in 2000 and a notice to bring the property for sales was published in newspapers in 2001.
But the department came to know that TMB had already auctioned the property only last year.
Replying to a notice issued by Commercial tax officials, the TMB on March 24 2008 stated that the exporter had mortgaged the properties as early as October 29, 1993, much prior to the demand notice issued by the department to the exporter in 1998.
The exporter did not pay back the loan amount and hence the property was auctioned in 2006 in execution of a decree obtained from a debt recovery tribunal. The bank realised Rs 14.30 lakh as against the dues amounting to Rs 47.37 lakh

Delhi mulls reduction in ATF sales tax

January, 17th 2009
The Delhi government will consider reducing sales tax on jet fuel to help the cash-strapped airlines industry, Delhi chief ministerSheila Dikshit has said. Refusing to commit herself, the CM said her government would try to bring down taxes on the lines of the Maharashtra, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh governments.
“I am not promising you anything. But let me see how we can help you. I have been informed that the tax has been reduced in some other places. I will try to do that but let me see how we can do it,” Ms Dikshit said at a seminar on aviation in Delhi on Friday. Kingfisher Airlines chairman Vijay Mallya urged the Delhi CM to consider reducing the sales tax on aviation turbine fuel (ATF) to 4%, a demand backed by civil aviation secretary M Madhavan Nambiar, who was also present.
Maharashtra, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh have all reduced the sales tax on jet fuel to 4%. Delhi accounts for almost 25% of the total passenger traffic in India. The airlines do almost 20% of the total fuel tankering from the national capital and according

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) is all set to begin the proposed peer audit review of the companies that form the Sensex and Nifty benchmark indices. The peer audit had been proposed by the market regulator's advisory committee on disclosures and accounting in the wake of the Satyam Computers' scam where the IT firm's promoters had admitted to siphoning of funds, and even submission of fake fixed deposits receipts to its auditor.
After missing the February-end deadline that was proposed earlier for the peer audit review, the market regular is planning to quickly start the process now. Sources close to the development said that Sebi has already decided on six to seven auditors for the job.
The proposed peer review of the 30 and 50 companies that make up the Sensex and Nifty indices, respectively, pertains to examining of their books by Sebi-appointed auditors after they have already been certified by the companies' mandated auditors. The intention is to find out what was actually found by the mandated auditors, what was disclosed by the companies and whether proper due diligence was carried out while auditing the books.
Initially, Sebi had planned to complete the audit by February-end, but the process was delayed because most of the audit firms were busy completing limited audit reviews of quarterly results in January. Sebi now proposes to carry out peer review of the audited papers for 2007-08 and third quarter of 2008-09, and "...the process will be completed as soon as possible", sources said.
The market regulator has already sent out the list of its auditors to companies so as to check if there is any ‘conflict of interest’. This might arise if the Sebi-appointed auditor for a specific company is also an auditor for a competing company. According to sources, the companies have already responded and the process is on for finalising the names of auditors for examining each company’s audit papers.
If no major deficiencies are found in the peer review process, the review could be extended to other companies as well. This would be in line with another proposal of the market regulator which called for extending the peer review to randomly selected companies in addition to the Sensex and Nifty firms.
Post-Satyam, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) have started favouring forensic audit of companies before making investment decisions. Recently, DLF – which is one of the companies in the benchmark indices – had faced a special audit of its accounts by the Income Tax department.

NEW YORK: Move over Jet Set -- here comes the Pet Set.An airline catering exclusively to furry passengers takes to the skies this July with a promise to make air travel everything the domestic animal could want.The first Pet Airways flight will depart July 14 from Teterboro, a small airport outside New York, en route to Washington, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles, said founder Alysa Binder."Pet Airways was created to provide a safe and comfortable solution for the transport of pets," said Binder and her husband Dan Wiesel in a company statement."Inspiration for the concept came from difficulties encountered when shipping Zoe, our Jack Russell Terrier, across the country."Flights, which will cost 149 dollars each way, will be on a modified Beechcraft 1900 supplied under contract with Suburban Air.The plane usually fits 19 passengers. This time there will be room for 50 cats and dogs."There will be two pilots and a pet attendant. Everything is done for the safety and comfort of the pets," Binder said.Pooches and kitties won't actually get seats. They'll travel in kennels stacked on custom-made shelves.Like many flights in these security conscious days, a check-in two hours before take-off is requested. To avoid the queues -- and any potential pre-flight nerves -- check-in can be done 72 hours earlier."Well be happy to board your pet at our PAWS Lodge until the flight," the company's website advertises.Then it's time to go to the Pet Lounge and onto the aircraft.The airline asks that pets answer the call of nature while on the ground, but says they don't have to."Potty breaks are very important to your pet. With the human airlines, your pet could be made to hold themselves for a very, very long time. Pet Airways monitors the last time your pet had a potty break, and makes sure that they get regular potty breaks along the way," the site says.Elizabeth Cory, spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Authority, explained that Pet Airways passengers -- the company calls them "pawsengers" -- will not be alone in the sky."Animals have always been carried by air, horses for example. This group only has a different marketing proposal. They are contracting with an existing carrier to carry animals," Cory said.Cory said the airline met FAA safety standards."For us the most important is to avoid the unnecessary shift of weight, and to insure that the animals are properly restrained."Some 76 million cats and dogs are estimated to travel each year in the United States, including two million in airplanes.Air travel is no easy ride for domestic creatures. Some 5,000 animals a year suffer injury while being transported, according to animal rights experts.The pet set looks likely to avoid such unpleasantness."Pet attendants make sure theyre all comfortable and that they, and their pet carrier, are secure," the website says. "A Pet attendant monitors and checks the comfort of all pawsengers every 15 minutes during the flight. After landing, pets will be disembarked, given a potty break, and will be available for pickup at the Pet Lounge
