Special Meeting and Awareness Session on latest changes in Central Excise and Service Tax Laws

Friday, January 2, 2015

Special Meeting and Awareness Session on latest changes in Central Excise and Service Tax Laws

All Entrepreneurs and Professionals may please note that there are many changes in Central Excise, Service Tax, Company Act that are New, Very Stringent.
There are severe provisions of arrest, including non-bailable arrest for defaulters and those accountable under the law.
Central Excise and Service Tax Commissionerate highlighted this in the recently held meeting of Public Grievances Committee on 18th September.
We requested the Commissioner to offer a 15 day period to the assessees. Some of these are large assessees.
We advise such assessees to take necessary remedial action so as to avoid more complications.

We also find that MOST OF THE ENTREPRENEURS are NOT aware of many such changes and stringent laws passed this year.
We are starting a Special drive to make entrepreneurs aware of these changes and provisions. 
We call it Financial Literacy and Compliances Series.
We'll conduct this series covering two aspects which are MUST for each Entrepreneur:
1. Financial Literacy: Right knowledge of Balance Sheets, Financial Statements, Banking, Finance, Credit & Fund raising, collaterals, mergers & acquisitions
2. Compliances: Central Excise, Service Tax, Companies Act, Income Tax, Customs and other compliances.

Upon our request, The Commissioner Central Excise agreed to conduct the first program as follows:
Topic: Central Excise & Service Tax related changes and compliances issues
Date: 4th October, 2013, Friday
Time: 10.30am-1.00pm
Venue: Shall be informed to participants
Followed by Lunch
Seats are LIMITED due to space constraints.

We also had a meeting with Commissioner Income Tax last week and she is willing to interact with our entrepreneurs to disseminate information on compliances related to Income Tax. We'll announce this program soon.

The new Companies Act also has several provisions for non-bailable offenses. The Act treats certain offences at par with criminal ones, thereby identifying them as cognizable and non-bailable. It becomes imperative on the part of promoters, directors, officers or any other person of the company to know.

Section 212(6) of the Act now recognizes some offenses to be cognizable where a police officer may arrest without a warrant, and non-bailable.

Imposing such a condition equates these offences with offences that are punishable with death, life imprisonment or imprisonment for seven years or more, where bail may be granted subject to hearing of the public prosecutor and court.

Directors, Chartered Accountant, Cost Accountant or Company Secretary and are also liable for action under the various offenses.

We have prepared a list of such offenses and also who may face action. Members can ask us for this list.

In case you wish to join the first Programme under the Compliances Series on 4th October, please write to:

Motor re-winding is common phenomenon

Friday, January 2, 2015

Motor re-winding is common phenomenon.

Fans, water pumps, workshops, factories, machineries, automobiles…. motors are used everywhere.

Poor quality of power, poor maintenance, over load, dust, heat, malfunction in relays, capacitors, and many more reasons cause motor damages…. and call for re-winding.

However, do we know what is the efficiency of the motor after re-winding?

Do we check?

What is the power consumption?

Do we compare before and after?

Any guess how many motors are re-wound in a day, in a city like, say Faridabad or Pune or Jalandhar…?

Can we guess how many motors are re-wound in the entire country?

In a preliminary survey that we conducted in a few factories which have been set up in the last 5 years with all new machines, we are astonished to find that 90% of the motors were repaired as 're-winding'. Almost 30% more than once. Just in a span of 5 years.

The loss to the entrepreneur is manifold.

Not just the down-time or re-winding cost…. but the gross inefficiency that creeps into the work place.

If re-wound incorrectly, the motor becomes energy/power guzzler and like a 'deemak' (white-ant), eats away the revenue and like a slow, hidden disease may grow like a cancer.

The loss to the nation is colossal.

To scientifically study and analyze the subject, Evaluate & Demonstrate the Economic Loss due to Re-winding of LT Motors and Propagate Best Practices of Motor Re-winding in SMEs, a team has been constituted to:

  • Understand and establish the reasons for motor failure therefore require rewinding;
  • Evaluate the efficiency loss occurring to the motor due to improper rewinding leading to higher operational costs; and
  • Current practices for O&M and Rewinding of motors

Faridabad cluster has been selected as there is wide application of motors and symbolizes larger number of representative cases. Also, the information gathered during detailed energy audit will come handy in the process.

The outcome of this study would result in:

  • A best practice guide book for:
    • Operation and Maintenance of motors for the end users, and
    • Rewinding practices and tips for technicians and motor rewinders
  • Audio Visual Documentary
    • a. To be used as awareness and capacity building material during various workshops.

I firmly believe that this study should help us arrive at some best-practices that can be shared by all users and also motor re-winders across India.

This one step should help us save losses worth millions, and also our environment.

We invite industries, entrepreneurs, maintenance engineers, electricians, operators and any one who can support this initiative by sharing experiences, data, ideas etc.

Let's work together!

Let's do it for ourselves and for our nation!
