Dear Brothers & sisters

          On 1st June 2016   there was a Tribunal order passed on "C" Bench : Kolkata through I.T.A No. 70/Kol/2016 ,which reflects in the removal of tax benefit of seafarers working on foreign flag ship and Indian flag ship in foreign water. It was informed that due to order some of the seafarers got income tax notice from income tax department. we would like to present as a organisation if such tribunal was set up by individual Shri Tapas Kr. Bandopadhyay it should not reflect to the whole seafares community who are  working in high sea and away from family helping Indian economy to build stronger. as working for Merchant Navy is very tough job where seafarers are not working only 8 hrs a day they are engage 24/ 9 month it should not compare with the land job, at the same time they are not working in any country and their working place is International water then how and under which counrty law they are entitled to pay tax. seafarers contribution towards are country is major and at other end only on the basis of one person participation in tribunal with out taking the concernd of  the major stake of shipping industry either employer side or seafarers side should not imposed on whole industry.
