      In my blog of 18th Sept , I had estimated BLACK MONEY disclosure of ( may be ) , Rs 40,000 crores , under
      Undisclosed Foreign Income and Assets Act - 2015
      That would have netted Government , Rs 24,000 Cr by way of tax / penalty
      I was way off the mark !
      The 3 month opportunity window closed two days back , with a disclosure of Rs 3770 cr , by 638 persons , netting Govt Rs 2262 cr !
      Quite like , " Digging the Mountain to find the Mouse "
      Now , some knowledgeable persons / organizations have estimated that the amount of BLACK MONEY stashed away domestically , could be close to,
      Rs 25 Lakh*Crores !
      But then , man-on-the-street guesses that to be Rs 100 Lakh*Crores !
      Time and again , that common man have proved the pundits wrong !
      I suppose , the common man knew all along that half-hearted amnesty schemes are bound to fail , as in the past
      But pundits refuse to learn from their past mistakes !
      They refuse to recognize that nowhere in the World , any Government has succeeded at any time to legislate the GREED away !
      And fail to understand why NDA government is hesitating to harness the unlimited power of SUN - the almighty SUN OF GREED
      By :
      * Abolishing Personal Income Tax ( source of the DARKNESS of

      * 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 - again
      free of Personal Income Tax ( setting in motion, a VIRTUOUS CIRCLE ! )

      NDA is planning to harness 100 GW of Solar Power by 2020

      If above-mentioned suggestion is implemented , India could harness

      1000 GW of Solar Power by 2020 !

      Just imagine what that could do to GDP / SELF-EMPLOYMENT / CLIMATE

      Let us harness GREED to make INDIA GREAT !
