UPU News:-UPU’s Extraordinary Congress can inspire beneficial change throughout the postal sector

Delivering continuous improvement is something of a mantra at the Universal Postal Union (UPU), one driven by the constant change experienced in the postal sector.

Our determination to support the sector has led to advances in the area of postal technology, and to UPU offering deep insights into the postal business.
In other words, in rain and in sunshine, whatever the situation, no matter the problem, UPU has been a permanent partner of the postal sector.
The relationship has been profoundly successful; however, there has been a growing realization at UPU that we need to be at our optimal best, if we are to truly help the sector during this period.
This is why September’s Extraordinary Congress in Addis Ababa is so important.
It offers an opportunity to fine-tune the organization, so it can continue to function as the cornerstone of the global postal industry.  
Decisions taken at the Congress will strengthen the organization’s financial security, streamline some of our processes, as well as support the postal network in areas such as remuneration rates.   
But being fit for purpose is also about having a purpose that fits. At UPU, we have a comprehensive understanding of our mission to help the postal sector.
First, in the area of international cooperation, our multilateral treaties are ensuring that the postal environment is geared for success.
Second, our unswerving commitment to providing access to affordable postal technology empowers operators and enables them to be cost-effective and to work at the leading edge.
Finally, our projects, aimed at the grassroots and regional levels, leverage e-commerce solutions, digitalization, financial inclusion and sustainable development to ensure postal operators contribute fully to their country’s economy.
Of course, working for the good of the sector places a great responsibility on our shoulders, but it is also a position of trust and confidence that we readily accept.
Our engagement with the industry has encouraged us to look deep into the organization and to continually evolve and improve. We owe the industry nothing less.
The agenda for Addis Ababa is one of the most important in UPU’s long history and the Congress can lay the foundation for a better future for the global postal network.

ITR filing: 7 step guide to file your Income Tax Return

The Income Tax department has notified July 31 as the last date to file Income Tax Return (ITR) for individuals. However, everybody is not as comfortable filing IT return online all by themselves.

Here is a step-by-step do-it-yourself guide:

For starters, only ITRs 1 and 4S can be filled online. ITR-1 (Sahaj) is a return filing form applicable to the individual who derive income from salary, rent and interest. ITR-4S (Sugam) is an income tax return form used by those who have chosen presumptive business income and also derive their income from salary, rent and interest.

To prepare and submit ITR online:

1) Login to e-Filing website with User ID, Password, Date of Birth /Date of Incorporation and enter Captcha code. 


2) Go to e-File and click on Prepare and Submit ITR Online

3) Select the Income Tax Return Form ITR 1/ITR 4S and the Assessment Year


4) Fill in the details and click the "Submit" button

5) Upload Digital Signature Certificate (DSC). A digital signature certificate lets you file your Tax Returns easier and more secure. Digital signature can be uploaded by going to the 'My Account' section once you are logged in.

6) Click on "Submit" button

7) On successful submission, ITR-V would be displayed (if DSC is not used). 

Click on the link and download the ITR-V. ITR-V will also be sent to the registered email. If ITR is uploaded with DSC, the Return Filing process is complete.


If the return is not uploaded with DSC, the ITR-V Form should be printed, signed and submitted to CPC within 120 days from the date of e-Filing. The return will be processed only upon receipt of signed ITR-V. Check your emails/SMS for reminders on non-receipt of ITR-V.
