Hinjewadi CPC centre will start in May

PUNE: The centralised processing centre (CPC) of the Income Tax (I-T) department providing services to the western zone will come up at Hinjewadi in Pune. It will become operational by May.

The western zone of the IT department covers Maharashtra (excluding Mumbai), Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Bangalore already has a CPC in Bangalore. Two centres, one in Pune and the other in Manesar in Haryana, will come up this year. Kolkata will host another centre later. Income tax department officials said the CPC in Pune will process the returns after converting the paperwork into the electronic format (e-return). "It will speed up processing of returns and help increase the daily processings," the officials added.

Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee, in his budget speech on Monday, said the CPC in Bangalore increased its daily processing capacity from the earlier 20,000 to 1.5 lakh returns in 2010-11. This project has won the 2011 gold award for e-governance.

"The CPC in Pune will come up at Hinjewadi on a private campus. The place has been identified and work to install the required software is underway. The centre should start functioning by May," the official said.

The Pune office will have advanced machinery to scan tax returns and digitise them. "The CPC will also have digitised data entry, so that I-T officials are able to access the returns in a digitised format and initiate intimation orders by e-mail to taxpayers in the form of a password-protected PDF document. The CPC in Manesar will also have similar facilities to digitise paper returns," the officials added.


SHG fund will benefit 10,000 SHGs in Pune

PUNE: The creation of the women's Self-Help Groups (SHG) Development Fund with a corpus of Rs 500 crore as proposed in the 2011-12 Union Budget is likely to bring smiles to the faces of close to two lakh women who are part of the 10,000 SHGs operational in Pune.

City NCP president and former MLC Vandana Chavan, who has done pioneering work for formation of SHGs in Pune, said the announcement is a boost, but should translate into concrete policies.

"Promotion of SHGs will help in economic empowerment of the women involved. The fund should help devise programmes to encourage them into becoming agents of change and also increase awareness about health issues," said Chavan, who initiated the Savitri Marketing Institution for Ladies Empowerment 10 years ago, to help women in slums become entrepreneurs.

Former mayor Deepti Chawadary, who has also worked towards promoting SHGs, said, "Although the fund gives impetus to the movement, it should also help chalk out programmes to enhance the entrepreneurial skills of the women and help SHGs become self-sufficient."
