Private Practice by Government Doctors

Private Practice by Government Doctors

Rule 14 of Central Health Service Rules, 1996 imposes ban on private practice of any kind, whatsoever including any consultation and laboratory practice by the doctors working under Central Health Service.

One case was reported during the year 2011, and two cases during the year 2012 and one case during the year 2013. However, there was no case reported during the current year (upto 15.2.2014).

The doctors are incentivised by payment of Non Practising Allowance (NPA) at the rate of 25% of the Basic Pay in lieu of private practices. However, penal action is taken against the guilty doctors as per CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965.

This was stated by Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad, Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare in a written reply to the Lok Sabha today.

The information relating to the 21.75 lakh new non-filers has been made available on the ‘Compliance Module’ on the e-filing portal of the Income Tax Department. The information will be shown only to the specific PAN holder when the PAN holder logs into e-filing portal at The PAN holder will be able to submit the response electronically and keep a print-out of the submitted response for record purposes.

Earlier the Income Tax Department had initiated a business intelligence project in February, 2013 to identify PAN holders who have not filed Income Tax Return and about whom specific information is available in Annual Information Return (AIR), Central Information Branch (CIB) data and TDS/TCS Returns. In the first round of data matching, 12.19 lakh non-filers were identified. Letters have been sent in these cases by the Compliance Management Cell and Assessing officers seeking the response of the taxpayer. The results of this initiative is very encouraging and 5,36,220 returns have been received from the target segment. Self assessment tax of Rs.1017.87 Cr. and advance tax of Rs. 898.22 Cr. has also been paid by the target segment.

While the Government urges all tax payers to disclose their true income and pay appropriate taxes, the Tax Department would continue to pursue the non filers vigorously till all the high potential non filers are covered.

In the article titled  Merger of 50 percent DA may soon be considered by Central Government –Sources  posted in  on 15th January 2014, It is said that if the government fails to announce the Merger of 50% dearness allowance before the DA crossing 100% level, Then the central government employees demand will not be for 50% DA Merger but  for 100% DA merger. As said, one of the important railway federation AIRF appealed the central government in its press release dated 21-2-2014 to Merge 100% DA with Basic Pay with all purposes. The Press release of AIRF is given below


February 21, 2014 – All India Railwaymen’s Federation(AIRF) has addressed the issue of merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay for all purposes w.e.f. 01.01.2014 to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and the Finance Minister, Government of India, as Dearness Allowance will cross 100%. Unfortunately, there is no heed to this issue despite agitations at length over the Indian Railways by the AIRF.
