Dear Narendrabhai :


There is no doubt , you will receive lakhs of " One Word " answers to your questions listed above , since a mobile app is not suited for detailed descriptions of suggestions on a subject like " Elimination of  Corruption and Black Money "



This is the reason , over the past one year , I have sent to you ( and to most of your Cabinet colleagues ) , some 50 unsolicited emails , listing concrete suggestions on this subject



Withdrawing of Rs 500 / 1000 currency notes , was only a small part of those suggestions


In itself , this step is unlikely to eliminate future generation of Black Money


But having taken this , there can be no question of any " Roll Back "


Given this " fait accompli ", and your " soliciting " suggestions from the public , please consider the following :



IN  SHORT  TERM

    In the forthcoming budget , revise Personal Income Tax rates as follows :

    *   Upto  Rs  10 lalkh.............. NIL  tax

    *   Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 lakh..... 10 %  tax

    *   Above Rs 20 lakh............... 20 %  tax



#  IN  MEDIUM  TERM


 *  From 01 April 2017 , introduction of a new Rs 10,000  denomination currency note , duly embedded with RFID chip


*  From 01 Oct 2017, withdraw current ( newly introduced ) notes of Rs 500 / 2,000 , ie these will cease to be legal tender from that date


Do not introduce replacement of Rs 1,000 note , currently under planning


*  Let current ( new ) notes of Rs 500 / 2,000 , co-exist / overlap ( during April-Oct 2017 ) , with Rs 10,000 RFID embedded note



 Why  ?

*  We want to permanently eliminate BLACK MONEY and CORRUPTION

*  We want our economy to move from a 2 % non-cash transaction to a 96 % non-cash transaction

*  We want this transition to happen by Dec 2017

*  Such a rapid transition is not possible to be achieved by relying on increased usage of Electronic Transfers / Mobile Payment Wallets / Credit - Debit cards / RuPay / UPI etc



 How  will Rs 10,000 currency note achieve such transition in ONE year  ?


*  Embedding RFID chip in Rs 10,000 note , practically turns it into a Credit Card !

   Whereas it is not possible for any issuing agency to issue a BILLION plastic credit cards - one to each Jan Dhan Bank account holder -, there is no problem for government / RBI to print and issue , a BILLION notes of Rs 10,000 ( duly embedded with RFID chip ) 



#  Can a RFID embedded Rs 10,000 note succeed in capturing all the data which a Credit card transaction manages to capture ?


*  Sure , a RFID embedded note too will capture ALL the data such as :

   >  Details of " spender / giver " of that note

   >  Details of " Recipient " of that note

   >  Date / Time / Amount of that transaction

   >  Details of " Goods / Services " involved

   >  Details of taxes paid ( Sales Tax / VAT / GST etc )


   
How will such captured DATA get transferred to Servers of IT / ED / RBI  ?


*   Each " giver " and each " receiver " of Rs 10,000 note will need to install in his smart phone , a IT Dept issued Mobile App ( called , VERIFIER

*   Mobile app will have provision to enter details of this CASH  transaction 

*  When that Rs 10,000 note is placed flat on the screen of the mobiles ( of both the parties      ) , the data will get transmitted through internet , including the note serial number



 Will embedding RFID serve any other purpose ?


*  That is the BEAUTY of RFID chip !

    It will communicate to IT / ED / RBI etc , of any accumulation of ( say ), ONE THOUSAND or more number of such notes , in an area of 1 Sq Meter , anywhere in India !

So , Black Money will have  NO PLACE TO HIDE  !

And , this continuous / constant tracking of each and every note of Rs 10,000 , can even help determine the MONEY VELOCITY / Currency Maps  !



Will this avoid the pain / difficulty / harassment being faced by ordinary citizens during the past 15 days  ?


*  Yes , of course  !

    Since there will be an overlap ( concurrent existence ) of high denomination notes for a 6 month period ( April - Oct 2017 ) , both types of notes will continue to be accepted as legal tender and there will be no disruption of day-to-day activities of buyers and sellers


This overlap will give enough time for RBI / Banks to fill up 4,000 " Currency Chests " located around the country , as also modify / fill up , 2 lakh ATMs



Will Government need to keep as a " closely guarded secret " , the introduction of RFID embedded notes of Rs 10,000  ?


*  No need ! Let the black money holders try whatever tricks they want !

    After 01 Oct 2017 , the only CASH they can hide , will be either Rs 100 notes ( just impossible ) or Rs 10,000 notes which " Announce their GPS location " and cry ,

#   IN   LONG   TERM

From  01  April  2019 , totally abolish Personal Income Tax

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Dear Shri Narendrabhai :


I believe , you gave 2 hours of your precious time to listen to the proposal of Shri Anil Bokil ( of ArthKranti - Pune )


How about giving me just 20 minutes ?
