Income Tax / No proposal to replace Income Tax with BTT: Govt

No proposal to replace Income Tax with BTT: Govt
New Delhi, Mar 17 (PTI) There is no proposal "at present" to replace Income Tax with Banking Transaction Tax or BTT, the government said today.

To a query if the government has any proposal to replace the Income Tax with BTT, Minister of State for Finance Santosh Kumar Gangwar said: "There is no such proposal under consideration of the government at present."

There is no tax by the name of BTT in the statute, he said in a written reply in the Lok Sabha.

He said however that earlier a Banking Cash Transaction Tax (BCTT) was being levied at the rate of 0.1 per cent on cash withdrawals from banks exceeding specified limit.

The BCTT was introduced in 2005 by the then UPA finance minister P Chidambaram. The levy was, however, withdrawn with effect from April 1, 2009.

The minister further informed that the collection of BCTT over the years has been very insignificant as compared to collection of Income Tax.

In January, however, the government had said that it will examine the recommendations of the chief ministers panel on encouraging digital payments post demonetisation for levying BCTT on cash deals of Rs 50,000 and above before taking a final view on it.

With Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu as convener, the panel on digitisation had submitted its interim report to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Further, the government has approved introduction of Online Entrance Examination for recruitment of other ranks in the army," Bhamre said.

India Talks / Jallianwala Bagh Massacre
« on: March 02, 2017, 09:22:15 AM »
Jallianwala Bagh Massacre
The Jallianwala Bagh massacre, also known as the Amritsar massacre, took place on 13 April 1919 when a crowd of nonviolent protesters, along with Baishakhi pilgrims, who had gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, Punjab, were fired upon by troops of the British Indian Army under the command of Colonel Reginald Dyer. The civilians had assembled to participate in the annual Baisakhi celebrations—both a religious and cultural festival for the Punjabis. Coming from outside the city, they may have been unaware of the martial law that had been imposed.

The Bagh-space comprised 6 to 7 acres (28,000 m2) and was walled on all sides with five entrances. On Dyer's orders, his troops fired on the crowd for ten minutes, directing their bullets largely towards the few open gates through which people were trying to flee. The British government released figures stating 379 dead and 1,200 wounded. Other sources place the number of dead at well over 1,000. This "brutality stunned the entire nation", resulting in a "wrenching loss of faith" of the general public in the intentions of the UK. The ineffective inquiry and the initial accolades for Dyer by the House of Lords fuelled widespread anger, leading to the Non-cooperation Movement of 1920–22.

On Sunday, 13 April 1919, Dyer was convinced of a major insurrection and he banned all meetings; however this notice was not widely disseminated. That was the day of Baisakhi, the main Sikh festival, and many villagers had gathered in the Bagh. On hearing that a meeting had assembled at Jallianwala Bagh, Dyer went with fifty Gurkha troops to a raised bank and ordered them to shoot at the crowd. Dyer continued the firing for about ten minutes, until the ammunition supply was almost exhausted. Dyer stated that 1,650 rounds had been fired, a number apparently derived by counting empty cartridge cases picked up by the troops. Official British Indian sources gave a figure of 379 identified dead, with approximately 1,100 wounded. The casualty number estimated by the Indian National Congress was more than 1,500, with approximately 1,000 dead.

दुनिया की आठ बड़ी ताकतों में छठे स्थान पर है भारत: अमेरिकी पत्रिका
अमेरिका की विदेश नीति से जुड़ी एक प्रमुख मैगजीन ने साल 2017 के लिए आठ शक्तिशाली राष्ट्रों की सूची में भारत को छठे स्थान पर रखा है. इस सूची में अमेरिका पहले स्थान पर है. इस सूची में चीन और जापान को संयुक्त तौर पर दूसरा स्थान मिला है. इसके अलावा सूची में रूस (चौथे) और जर्मनी (पांचवें) भारत से आगे हैं. ईरान को सातवें जबकि इस्राइल को आठवें पायदान पर रखा गया है. मैगजीन ने नरेंद्र मोदी के नेतृत्व की तारीफ की है.

‘द अमेरिकन इंट्रेस्ट’ मैगजीन ने आठ महान वैश्विक ताकतों से जुड़ी अपनी सालाना रिपोर्ट में कहा, ‘जापान की तरह भारत को भी विश्व के शक्तिशाली देशों की सूचियों में अक्सर नजरअंदाज कर दिया जाता है, लेकिन वैश्विक मंच पर इसका स्थान दुर्लभ और उल्लेखनीय है.’ मैगजीन में कहा गया है कि भारत दुनिया का सबसे बड़ा लोकतंत्र है, जहां अंग्रेजी बोलने वाली दुनिया की दूसरी सबसे बड़ी आबादी रहती है. इसके साथ ही भारत एक विविधता से परिपूर्ण तेजी से आगे बढ़ती आर्थिक ताकत है.

हर ताकत चाहता है भारत से सहयोग
पत्रिका के अनुसार भू-राजनीतिक परिप्रेक्ष्य में देखें तो चीन, जापान और अमेरिका सभी अपने एशियाई सुरक्षा ढांचे को लेकर भारत के साथ सहयोग को लेकर उत्सुक हैं. वहीं यूरोपीय संघ और रूस आकर्षक व्यापार और रक्षा समझौतों के लिए नई दिल्ली की तरफ देखते है.

नरेंद्र मोदी की तारीफ
पत्रिका ने अपनी रिपोर्ट में कहा, 'प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के नेतृत्व में आर्थिक सुधारों के आधुनिकीकरण के साथ अपनी क्षमता के उपयोग के जरिये भारत ने चतुराई से इन प्रतिद्वंद्वी शक्तियों से अलग अपनी राह बना ली है.' पत्रिका के मुताबिक नोटबंदी के बाद उत्पन्न आंतरिक समस्याओं और पाकिस्तान के भय के बावजूद भारत ने 2016 में अपने पांव और मजबूती से जमाए हैं.

अमेरिकन इंट्रेस्ट ने अपनी रिपोर्ट में कहा, 'मोदी ने अमेरिका और जापान के साथ नए नौसैनिक सहयोग कायम करने में सफलता हासिल की है और उन्होंने भारतीय सेना को आधुनिक बनाने के लिए रूस, फ्रांस तथा इजराइल के साथ भी कई रक्षा समझौतों पर दस्तखत किए हैं.'
