Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Quoting from a news-report ( HT / 02 Feb 2016 ) :

At a recent World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Shri Arun Jaitley had said , India needs some additional growth engines , indicating that the focus would shift to reviving PRIVATE investments

Senior Govt officials said," The incentives could be in the nature of TAX CONCESSIONS "

DIPP Secretary , Amitabh Kant added ,  " For the Indian economy to continue to grow, it has to be on the back of DOMESTIC  PRIVATE  SECTOR  investments ..... for a continuous robust growth , investments from the PRIVATE  SECTOR , have to be ramped up "

Let us not keep fooling ourselves  !

Prey  !  From where do the so called PUBLIC SECTOR investments come from ?

It is PRIVATE MONEY  !  Just re-routed by governments , using yours and mine tax money  !

That is, whatever gets left ( of that tax money ) after expenses of running the government

Apart from that ,

*  Re-routing tax money through PUBLIC SECTOR investments, is a very slow / cumbersome process

*  Persons who manage those investments are rarely made " accountable " for profits / dividends

*  Since tax-payers do not get immediate benefits from such re-routing , it gives rise to tax evasions

*  Tax evasions lead to generation of BLACK MONEY and CORRUPTION

And no political party would advocate " raising of taxes " so that , on 29 Feb 2016 , Shri Jaitley could allocate

*  ONE TRILLION DOLLARS ( Rs 70 lakh*crore ) each to , Piyush Goyal / Suresh Prabhu / Nitin Gadkari / Ravi
    Shankar Prasad / Uma Bharati / Venkaiah Naidu / Rajiv Pratap Rudy etc


*  TEN TRILLION DOLLARS each to , Manohar Parikar ( Defense ) and Nirmala Sitharaman ( Make in India )


In my email ( 08 April 2014 ) , I wrote to Shri Narendra Modi :

*  Create Infrastructure SPVs

*  Allow people to invest in these directly and make " returns ( interests / dividends ) " , tax free

*  Amnesty Scheme for funds invested in such SPVs ( no questions asked as to the source of funds invested )

*  An " INVERSE  TAX " regime for Personal Income Tax  ( with decreasing tax-rates for each higher slab )

Later emails recommended :

*  Encourage CREATION of WEALTH by total abolition of Personal Income Tax

*  Decreasing Corporate Income Tax , linked to number of permanent employees

I hope Shri Jaitleyji does not treat these as POPULIST measures and keep tinkering with  80ccg /  80dd / 80ddb / 80e / 80g /80gg /80ggc / 80tta  / 80u / 24b ....etc  !

Time now is for embracing   TRANSFORMATIONALIST   measures

It is time for the Butterfly to emerge from its cocoon  !
