No. 1

EDITORIAL The Editorial team of "The Chilka" wishes every member a Happy New Rotary year 2013-14. Today Rtn. Satyadev Khemani popularly known as 'Pappu' will be formally installed by his predecessor IPP Rtn. E.Siva Prasad Rao as the first President of Rotary Club of Berh-ampur under the new R.I District 3262. IPP Rtn. E.Siva Prasad Rao (Babulu) will be remembered not only as the last president of Rotary Club of Berhampur under the erstwhile undivided R.I District of 3260 but also as the "Ever smiling President" of our club. He has left no stone unturned to make his year a memorable one with lots of community projects and many more family of Rotary programs. Our IPP Rtn. Babulu has left a certain footprint that will allow Rtn. Pres.Pappu to further tread on his mission unequivocally. Pres.Pappu has done his homework well with his select team of goal focused bravehearts, who are well equipped to achieve any goal bestowed on them. Pres. Pappu has already drawn an ambitious plan that will cater well to the needs of the community with greater focus on "Fellowship" and "Rotary Swargadham". The ever devoted and steadfast president is all set to shell out his prowess for the club's advantage with great charisma and vigor. One could presume from his approach that he's prepared to accomplish everything at one go. He has the strong backing of Rtn. Rajesh Choudhury who will deputize him as Hony. Secy. Rajeshji is very articulate and understands his responsibility very well. He is highly calculative and receptive too. Both Pappuji and Rajeshji along with the stalwarts like Sanat, Ajit Raju, Sivanarayana, P.K.Acharya, Murali, Dr.Bhartudu, Suresh Saraf, Gopiram, Ishaque, Deepak, VVRN Rao, Dr. Manmadha Rao, P.S.N, Ranjit Panda, Santosh Sahu, K.K.Mishra & P.K.Rajeev will all exemplify a new and powerful approach to leadership in this great club of RID3262, not Editor : Rtn.

Friday, 5th July. 2013 to mention all other members who are very much committed to extend all their support. High on his agenda are the three P's Presence that is attendance, Philanthropy i.e. Service, Partnership that deals with fellowship with members in addition to our club's dream project. As for me I am the first editor of RC Bam under the new RID 3262. I am working my mind and contriving hard to write this first editorial of the inaugural edition of the 59th edition of The Chilka. I along with my experianced and wonderful colleague P.Parthasarathi are particularly endeavoring hard to be more rhetoric and candid in our approach will bring out interesting articles and events to increase you readership and to create a niche-grip in the realm of Rotary news and events. At this juncture what we require mostly is your best support and valuable assistance in our quest to make Chilka the most sought after weekly Rotary magazine. I along with my colleague P.Parthasarathi and all the office bearers and standing Comm. Chairmen appeal you all through Chilka to please, please cooperate and support Pappu ji in all the avenues of service and enable him to make his dream real. From all of us here at team The chilka we show our good appreciation to Babulu garu and his team for their wonderful manifestation in the Rotary Year 2012-13 by fulfilling the objects of Rotary in rich fervor concomitantly. Team Chilka wishes Pres. Pappu Khemani and his team of office bearers a meaningful and purposeful Rotary year ahead of them. We are sure the current team more altruistically, fulfills the Rotary objects by Engaging Rotary and changing lives in every action. Happy reading and reap maximum enjoyment and wisdom from the programs and projects in this Rotary year 2013-14 and the years to ensue.

R.I PRESIDENT’s Monthly messages - July 2013 Dear fellow Rotarians, This is an incredibly exciting time to be a Rotarian. This Rotary year can be one of the greatest years we have yet experienced in Rotary – but it is up to each one of us. We are now writing the last chapter in our fight against polio. While it has been a long, hard journey, we have learned many valuable lessons. We have learned that as a group we can move mountains, we can change people’s lives for the better, and we can honestly make a difference in our world. Perhaps the greatest lesson has been that the more we challenge ourselves, the more we can achieve. We are also embarking on a new chapter in the storied history of our Rotary Foundation. We have the rare privilege of launching an entirely new grant structure we’ve come to know as Future Vision. It gives us the opportunity to challenge ourselves to do the absolute most we can, with all of our resources. Just think how much more we can do with a stronger Foundation, with stronger clubs filled with more Rotarians who are fully engaged in Rotary service. It’s time for us to recognize that the real challenge we face isn’t just bringing new members into Rotary. It’s turning all members into true Rotarians. It’s helping members get engaged in Rotary – helping them realize the potential they have, and how their Rotary service can change lives. We need to make sure that every member is active and contributing, and making a real difference – because when you’re doing meaningful work in Rotary, Rotary is meaningful to you. When we realize what we can achieve in Rotary – when we really engage Rotary – that’s when lives change. We change


the lives of the people who need us. That is inevitable. And along the way, our lives are changed as well. That is also inevitable. That’s what our theme is all about in 2013-14: Engage Rotary, Change Lives. It’s time to open our eyes to the potential each of us has through Rotary. Rotary lets us reach higher, do more, and be a part of something larger than ourselves. No matter how much we give to Rotary, we get more in return. And that, too, is inevitable. In 2013-14, let’s turn all of our potential into reality. It’s up to us. We can do it by engaging in Rotary service, by getting involved, by staying inspired, and by remembering every day the gift we have in Rotary. Together, we will Engage Rotary, Change Lives Ron D. Burton President, Rotary International

The new Rotary year: Changes you should know about For three years, 100 districts have been testing Future Vision, a pilot of The Rotary Foundation’s new grant system, which was designed to increase Rotary’s effectiveness during the next century of service. As the new Rotary year dawns, the future has begun. All districts begin using the simplified grant structure 1 July. Districts have already been completing the qualification process and qualifying their clubs. A number of clubs and districts have begun preparing and submitting grant applications. There will be three types of grants: global, district, and packaged. You can learn about all three types, and get more details about the application process, on Rotary’s grant microsite . Also on 1 July, new leaders will take office at the club, district, and international levels. Ron D. Burton, of the Rotary Club of Norman, Oklahoma, USA, will become Rotary’s 103rd president and will encourage Rotarians to Engage Rotary, Change Lives . Anne L. Matthews, a member of the Rotary Club of Columbia East, South Carolina, USA, will become the first woman to serve as vice president. Matthews, a former director of South Carolina’s Department of Education, is president of Matthews and Associates, an educational consulting firm. Read her biography. Dong Kurn Lee, of the Rotary Club of Seoul Hangang, Korea, will take over as Rotary Foundation trustee chair. Read his biography and download his convention speech. Other changes for 2013-14: Rotarians will be allowed to form satellite clubs, whose members meet at a different time and location from their parent clubs. The change, approved by the Council on Legislation in April, is intended to make it easier for members to develop the core for a new club. Districts will be able to form an unlimited number of eclubs. The Council removed a limit of two e-clubs per district. The change is designed to bring in new members and appeal to young professionals, who may be less able to meet in person weekly. The name of Rotary’s fifth Avenue of Service will change from “New Generations Service” to “Youth Service.” This change was also approved by the Council. In 2010, this avenue of service joined Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, and International Service. The dues Rotary clubs pay Rotary International will increase US$1 to $53 per member. A redesigned Rotary website will be launched in late summer. The RI Board of Directors will seat nine new directors 1 July, along with 2013-14 President-elect Gary C.K. Huang, of the Rotary Club of Taipei, Taiwan.

ROTARY'S AREAS OF FOCUS The needs spanning Rotary's six areas of focus are vast, ranging from lack of access to clean water to the need for immunization that prevent deadly diseases. Learn more in the Rotary's Areas of Focus publication Rotary clubs serve communities around the world, each with unique concerns and needs. Rotarians have continually adapted and improved the way they respond to those needs, taking on a broad range of service projects. The most successful and sustainable Rotary service tends to fall within one of the following six areas: - Peace and conflict prevention/resolution - Disease prevention and treatment - Water and sanitation - Maternal and child health - Basic education and literacy - Economic and community development Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation recognize these six areas of focus as organizational priorities, and there are countless ways that Rotarians can address these needs locally and internationally. Clubs and districts participating in the Future Vision pilot can apply for Rotary Foundation Global Grant funding by targeting specific goals for one or more of the areas of focus.


Tax Deduction on Purchase of Immoveable Property Section 194-IA of the Income Tax Act, 1961 After section 194-I of the Income tax Act, the following section was inserted with effect from the 1st day of June, 2013, namely:— ‘194-IA Payment on transfer of certain immovable property other than agricultural land.—(1) Any person, being a transferee, responsible for paying (other than the person referred to in section 194LA) to a resident transferor any sum by way of consideration for transfer of any immovable property (other than agricultural land), shall, at the time of credit of such sum to the account of the transferor or at the time of payment of such sum in cash or by issue of a cheque or draft or by any other mode, whichever is earlier, deduct an amount equal to one per cent of such sum as income-tax thereon. (2) No deduction under sub-section (1) shall be made where the consideration for the transfer of an immovable property is less than fifty lakh rupees. Explanation.—for the purposes of this section,— (a) “agricultural land” means agricultural land in India, not being a land situate in any area referred to in items (a) and (b) of sub-clause (iii) of clause (14) of section 2 ; (b) “immovable property” means any land (other than agricultural land) or any building or part of a building.’ This amendment will take effect from 1st June, 2013. Analysis of new TDS Section 194-IA 1. This amendment will take effect from June 01, 2013 for sale of immovable property (other than agricultural land) where consideration is Rs. 50 Lacs and above. 2. The property may be in the nature of land, buildings or flats. Both residential and commercial properties are covered under this provision. However, the deduction does not apply to purchase of agricultural land which is not located within municipal limits or within the specified distance from municipal limits. 3. The section requires TDS to be deducted at 1% of the price being paid by the purchaser of an immoveable property, irrespective of quantum of capital gains. Purchaser and seller may be anyone i.e. individual / HUF /AOP / BOI / Partnership firm / LLP / Company / Artificial juridical person. No TDS is required to be deducted where total consideration is less than Rs 50 Lakhs.

4. If the seller does not have/provide a PAN, the rate of TDS would be 20%. 5. Such TDS would be deducted irrespective of who the seller is whether a builder or a flat owner making a sale. 6. Deductor must be very careful in filling up PAN details. In case wrong PAN is entered, there is no facility of correcting the same online. The only option available is to approach the Assessing Officer or TDS-CPC 7. Any tax deducted under section 194-IA will be a. Deposited within 7 days from the end of month in which tax was deducted b. Deposited by way of Challan-cums-statement in Form 26QB c. Deposited electronically into RBI/SBI or any authorized bank 8. NSDL site has already provided a new link “TDS on sale of Property” under e-Payment of Taxes to electronically deposit such TDS. It is mandatory to provide PAN of both transferor and transferee. Complete address of transferor and transferee is to be given. About property, complete address, value consideration, date of agreement and whether payment made in lump sum or installment is also to be provided in the online form. 9. TDS Certificate in respect deduction under section 194-IA will be issued by Deductor in Form No 16B. Form 16B has to be issued within 15 days from the due date of depositing tax (i.e. within 22 days of the end of the month in which the tax was deducted). Form 16B will have to be downloaded from income tax web portal 10. The purchaser is exempt from the obligation to obtain TAN, which is otherwise mandatory for all deductors. Purchaser is not required to obtain a TAN as the Forms 26QB and 16B are to be filed using the PAN details of the parties to the transaction. 11. Usually, tax has to deducted either at the time of credit or payment of consideration, whichever is earlier. In most of the cases of individuals purchasing immoveable property, the question of credit of consideration in the books of account should not arise, as there would usually be no books of account maintained for such transactions. Therefore, effectively TDS would be required to be deducted at the time of payment Fortunately, the purchaser deducting such TDS is not required to comply with the cumbersome TDS procedural requirements applicable to other TDS deductors, such as obtaining a Tax Deduction Account Number, filing a TDS return, issuing a TDS certificate, etc. All that he is required to do is fill in a form online (www.tin-nsdl.com) or either make an e-payment or physical payment with the bank. Thanks to Government in this regard. Rtn. CA B Vijay
