3 rule changes that will impact your Personal Finance from 1 August

There are a few rule changes related to your personal finance that will come into effect from 1 August. Here in this article, we will discuss 3 changes.

NACH system to be available on all days

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has announced that the National Automated Clearing House (NACH) system will be available on all days, including Sundays and bank holidays, effective from August 1, 2021.

NACH is a bulk payment system operated by NPCI which facilitates one-to-many credit transfers, such as payment of dividend, interest, salary, pension, and also a collection of bill payments pertaining to electricity, gas, telephone, water, periodic installments towards loans, investments in mutual funds, insurance premium, etc.

At present, auto-debit instructions given by the bank account holder do not get processed on days the bank is closed like Sundays, bank holidays, and even gazetted holidays. Further, since most companies use NACH for salary credits these also do not happen on bank holidays.

Penalty on self-assessment tax dues above Rs 1 lakh

A government press release issued on May 20, 2021, stated that if an individual taxpayer’s tax dues, after subtracting TDS and advance tax dues, exceeds Rs 1 lakh for FY 2020-21, then the payment must be made on or before July 31, 2021. The penal interest, as per under 234A of the Income-tax Act, 1961, will be levied at the rate of 1 percent per month from August 1, 2021, till the date of filing of ITR.

The press release clarified that if senior citizens (who are not required to pay advance tax as per income tax laws) pay any taxes before July 31, 2021, then the taxes paid will be treated as advance tax. Further, if due to this the final tax liability goes below Rs 1 lakh, then penal interest will not be levied under section 234A.
However, such relief has not been provided for individuals aged below 60 years. Therefore, they need to pay all their tax dues if it exceeds Rs 1 lakh to avoid penal interest from August 1.
