Take the Wind out of their Sail


When the Lok Sabha reconvenes this morning , expect fire-works !


12 opposition parties , led by Congress , will shed crocodile tears to show their sympathy for the difficulties / harassments / pains suffered by millions  ordinary citizens since demonetization announcement of 08 Nov ." They have lost their livelihoods ", they will say


With forthcoming elections in UP - and 4 more States - , how can they afford to miss out such a golden opportunity to attack the government as being " Anti Poor " ?


Government will argue that ,


*  Things will return to normal in 8 / 10 days


*  Already Rs 5.5 lakh*crore worth of Rs 500 / 1000 notes have been deposited in bank
    accounts . By March 2017 , this will exceed Rs 10 lakh*crore . Balance of Rs 5 lakh*
    crore will get burnt or dumped into rivers


*  Next ( after 30 Dec ) , we plan to attack all Benami Properties where Black money is
    locked up ( for which , it was essential to maintain , utmost secrecy )


But , all of these valid arguments will get drowned in the din !


However, there is a surefire way in which the Government can silence the opposition


By Prime Minister announcing the following in Lok Sabha , at the very outset
( suggestions which, I sent to NDA Ministers through emails shown below ) :


#   Email date :  01  Oct  2015
 
 Abolishing Personal Income Tax ( source of the DARKNESS of CORRUPTION )

*    Stop asking any questions as to the " Source " for all cash deposits 
      made into bank accounts opened under Jan Dhan Yojana


*    Levy a Bank Transaction Tax ( BTT ) of 2 % to yield revenue of 
      Rs 15 lakh*crores , which would be 5 times the loss of revenue due to
      abolition of Personal Income Tax


*    Encourage deposits made into Jan Dhan bank accounts to be invested in
      SOLAR POWER SPV Farms , by direct depositing of income derived ( 
      from sale of electricity to DISCOMs ) into those bank accounts


#   Email date :  22  Sept  2015

*  Enact " Start Up Act - 2015 "

*  Abolish Personal Income Tax for Start Ups registering on web site of 
   Income Tax department ( must file ZERO TAX return for 10 years )

*  No questions asked re source for all investments made in Start Ups ,as
   long as this cash gets deposited in the bank account of that Start Up 


#  E Mail date : 18  Sept  2015

The only FINAL / LASTING solution is :

Abolish Personal Income Tax

Simultaneously declare :

No questions will be asked for any amount of cash deposited in bank accounts by individuals ( of course , with linkage to PAN / Aadhar / RuPay card etc )

Sure , Government will lose Rs 2.5 lakh*crores by way of tax revenue,
received from some 3 crore individual tax payers

But , Abolition of Personal Income Tax ( and no questions asked re bank deposits ) , could lead to 30 crore persons , each depositing Rs 1 lakh into their bank accounts ! 

 {  Not unthinkable , considering that during past one year alone , Rs 20,000
   Cr got deposited in 20 crore new bank accounts , under Jan Dhan Yojana  }

 So , we are talking of bank accounts swelling by  Rs 30 crore*lakh  !

Even if that money earns the depositors , only 3 % rate of interest !

And banks will give out these moneys as loans to Corporate @ 5 % interest rate  ! 

Trillions of BLACK MONEY Rupees will become " Productive Assets "

And , Corporate World ( + our Finance Minister ) would not need to keep begging RBI for a " Rate Cut " to boost the economy !

To keep growing at 10% rate , we have got to make ours , a :

LOW  COST  ECONOMY 


#  E  Mail  date  :  04  Jan  2015

*   " Inverse Taxation Regime " both , for Personal Income Tax as also for Corporate Tax

       The more you earn , the less tax ( rate on next higher slab ) you pay


*   For Corporate , the more people you employ , the less tax ( rate on next higher slab ) you pay



*   Even total abolition of Personal Income Tax



There are over a dozen Countries where there is NIL personal Income Tax


So , there is a precedent that this can work  !


If Personal Income Tax was to be totally abolished , what can / may  happen ?



*   There will be no incentive for tax evasion / avoidance 


     This will be a permanent FULL STOP to future generation of Black Money


*   All payments will be received by cheques and deposited in Bank Accounts


*   All stashed away Black Money will , somehow , on its own , find its way in bank

    accounts, - including Black Money lying in Foreign Banks , making SIT redundant !

   This is the ONLY WAY , NDA  government can redeem its promise !


*   Savings rate will go up dramatically


*   That will lead to greater purchasing power for all people


*   Leading to higher domestic consumption of FMCG / Consumer Durables


*   This will result in huge collection of GST , offsetting revenue losses


*   Demand will go up , boosting manufacturing


*   With rise in manufacturing , sub-contracting / outsourcing will increase , giving a big

     boost to MSME sector 

*   If manufacturing goes up , employment / self-employment ,  will go up


*   For a change , we as a Nation , will learn to celebrate , 


     #    Wealth Creation as a means to reduce poverty


     #    World-size Companies to take on the World


*   There will be less pressure on demands for higher salaries / wages


*   If salaries / wages do not rise , inflation will ease


*   Cost of manufacturing too , will go down


*   Era of " Low Cost Economy " will set in ( VIRTUOUS CIRCLE ? )


*   Savings will move from gold / land to Financial Assets


*   With a low cost structure , our products / services  will become , internationally

     competitive and exports will go up

*   That will improve our current negative Trade Balance / CAD


*   This ( abolition of Personal Income Tax ) should be coupled with SPVs for 


     #    Infrastructure Projects ( especially Smart Cities / Corridors etc )


     #    Educational Institutions


     #     Skill Development Institutions


     #     Health care Facilities


     #     Solar Power ( Eqpt Mfr / Generation / Transmission / Distribution )


     #     Digital India ( Broadband ) Network



     No questions must be asked as to the source of money invested in such SPVs


    All income ( Corporate Income or Personal Income by way of dividends / interests etc )
    arising out of investments made in such SPV , must be tax-exempted

    SPVs , themselves , must not need to pay any taxes for 10 years 

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

Dear Shri  Modiji :


*   Today , is the time for your NEXT Surgical Strike / Master Stroke

*   Take away the empty thunder of the Opposition

*   Render the Opposition " irrelevant  "

*   Forever , silence your critics with these " Declarations of Intentions "

*   Make 21st Century , the INDIAN  CENTURY  !
