      FROM GREED TO GREAT ? In my blog of 18th Sept , I had estimated BLACK MONEY disclosure of ( may be ) , Rs 40,000 crores , under Undisclosed Foreign Income and ets 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 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 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 ! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- hemen parekh 02 Oct 2015 B2BmessageBlaster

        40% non-fossil fuel based energy would be the 'capacity' and not the 'production'. Your comment "Produce 40 per cent of electricity from non-fossil fuel based energy resources by 2030, if international community helps with technology transfer and low cost finance." needs to be rectified. Cheers!!

          South India: Rationel production and Quality Management will reduce energy. Solar panels on the flat roofs will save electricity and help changing sea water to drinking water instead of using old and untight tankers for bringing the water from the hill areas to the towns.
