After a juicy union budget from Finance Minister Mr.P.Chidambaram, we all are very many of us could have manage to get pass with income taxes. But this may be for a fortnight as some financial experts fear to have some adverse effects.

V. Balakrishnan, Chief Financial Officer, Infosys Technologies, predicted that taxes going upward to 22 percentage in the financial year 2009/10 from about 15 percentage now, if a 10-year taxation vacation ends in March 2009

India's export-driven software services sector had sought the extension of the Software Technology Park of India strategy beyond 2009, particularly for the welfare of tiny amd medium firms, in the federal budget. The proposition did not discover any reference in Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's 2008/09 budget on Friday.

"We will come under full tax regime in 2010," he said. "From 15 percent it will go to 22 percent, the effective tax rate."
The high taxes would get an influence of 2.5-3 percentage for the complete year on the earnings margins of India's second-largest software services exporter, he said.

Misguided youth

Bangalore police has been arrested an IT employee name Mohammed Yahya Kammakutty with the allegation of having connection with banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). The IT capital of India has been shocked by this news. Corps of Detectives (CoD) of Bangalore Police has arrested this 32 year electrical engineer who is also an ex-employee of General Electric (GE) Software.

Kammakutty is born and brought up in a village near Kozhikode in Kerala and he is living in B’lore for last 8 years. Although he was sacked from his last employer GE Software but still he lived in B’lore.

Indian salaries rose an average 15.1 per cent in 2007 with the highest increase coming from the real estate sector, according to a survey conducted by human resources firm Hewitt Associates.

The momentum is expected to continue in 2008, rising about 15.2 percent, but will temper to stabilize at 9-10 percent by 2012, Hewitt said in a statement released late on Tuesday.
