Inviting innovative ideas and suggestions on tax policy and administration

One of the key priorities of the Government is to provide a non-adversarial and a responsive tax administration with the main objective of creating an environment conducive for achieving higher investments and growth. At the same time the focus is also on ensuring ease of doing business for the taxpayers. For individual taxpayers, Government endeavours to promote voluntary compliance by making compliance easy and reducing the cost of compliance for the taxpayers. These steps are aimed to ultimately result in buoyant revenue collections, reflecting higher growth, leading to higher standard of living and better quality of life for the citizens.

The Department of Revenue invites taxpayers and general public to provide innovative ideas and suggestions on tax policy and administrative issues with the objective of ease of doing business and reducing compliance cost for industries thereby facilitating buoyancy of revenue and increase in investment leading to higher growth.

The rule and regulations made for Income tax are not amended at the rate of inflation in the country.
Bangalore has grown a lot and the living expense are also higher. I would be great if you can consider Bangalore as metro and provide HRA exemption of 50% of basic

Nowadays a earning person cannot run the family within 2.5 LPA (tax exemption limit). It has to be increased to a reasonable extent so that it will be helpful.

Policies should promote skills based employment rather than investment based.
pro capital investment based policies will lead to more unemployment and loss of revenue for Govt.

Monster of inequality is growing very fast and that will create lot of antisocial activity such as crimes and terrorisms.
This problem can only be solved by small businesses.
FDI and foreign money is dangerous.
we do not require bullet trains. It is rubbish idea.

First and foremost, Govt. Should focus in increasing revenue without affecting poor and middle class people.
this can be achieved by bringing in innovative tax structure and reduction in expenditure.
It is also important to increase economic activity through innovative policies. Few suggestions.
1. Remove direct tax and increase indirect taxes.
2. Tax every inch of land in use. Tax heavily not in use.
3. Remove tax benefit to house loans except own house. It cant be rented.
4. PromoteSME

Government spending much money in scholarships, fees for reserved category student. They are paying less and getting more scholarships.
It is better if government can provide equal and total free education for all without any scholarship. If the education is free and same for all then this caste factor will lapse.I don't thing there will much financial burden.

Government is calculating tax on individual basis but it should be calculated on joint family basis too. Suppose a family having 6 members in which only 1 person is salaried. He has to feed his family, education, marriage and purchase house. which is not easy task for single earner. In other way a family of 5 members and all earning much. Then they can easily effort all things and easily contribute good money for nation building. We can focus on this area also.

THERE MUST BE "TAX SUBSIDY " AS WE DO IN "LPG DBTL"
INCOME BELOW 2.5 LACS, FILE INCOME TAX RETURN , CALCULATE TAX AT RATE OF 5% AND PAY TAX TO GOVERNMENT KITTY, BY THE END OF NEXT MONTH , GET YOUR TAX REFUND IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT LINKED TO YOUR PAN. 100% SUBSIDY ON TAX, AND GOVERNMENT HAS GOT CRUCIAL DATA REGARDING INCOME GROUPS WHICH IS LIABLE TO PAY TAX, BUT DO NOT PAY ANY.

CIBIL RELATED: WHILE ALL OF GOVERNMENT'S FOCUS IS ON "MAKE IN INDIA" AND TECHNOCRATS OF INDIA ARE SPREAD ALL OVER WORLD TO MAKE SOFTWARES AND BACK END, SUPPORT TO ENTIRE WORLD, WE ARE PAYING FOR OUR CREDIT SCORE TO A FOREIGN ENTITY.. WHILE WE ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE TO DO SO IN OUR OWN COUNTRY.. SHARING SENSITIVE INFORMATION WITH OUTSIDERS CAN PROVE TO BE SHORTSIGHTED IDEA.
