  1. Does all this apply to POLITICIANS,MLAs,MPs,Bureaucrats and "public servants"? Or are they EXEMPT from all these restrictions? Are PAYMENT OF BRIBES in excess of Rs.50,000/- only to Attract the provisions of this QUOTE PAN? And is it per Payment or Cumulative for any Assessment Year?

  2. I just hope that this amendment will benefit a lot of people especially the ones working in the writing service service where income is not that high.
