New Income Tax Portal
Income Tax Department is all set to launch its new e-filing portal incometax.gov.in, on 7 June 2021. So, in preparation of the launch and for migration activities, the existing portal: incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in, would not be available to taxpayers as well as external stakeholders for a brief period of six days, from 1 to 6 June 2021.
Starting 1 June 2021, any new photos and videos you upload will count towards the free 15 GB of storage that comes with every Google Account or the additional storage you’ve purchased as a Google One member.
EPFO Rule Change
Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has made it mandatory for all its members to link their EPF accounts to Aadhaar card, reported Mint.
Increase in Flight Fares
Flying within India will become costlier starting Tuesday, 1 June, following the impact of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. The Ministry of Civil Aviation has increased the lower limit for flight fares.
For example, fares of flights under 40 minutes of duration will be increased from Rs 2,300 to Rs 2,600. This amounts to a hike of 13 percent. Similarly, fares have increased for other flights as well.
