Why this petition matters
India is a country with a 1.4 billion population. Out of which only 8.22 crore pay tax including individuals and corporates. The entire responsibility of the nation is in the hands of these 1% taxpayers. The benefits that we get in the name of the tax are nill from our government. No free education, No free medical facilities, No free public transport, nothing.
An average taxpayer in our country is paying 50% of their salary in taxes to get nothing from the government. It’s frustrating to see our hard-earned going into taxes while the people are earning tons of black money and not paying taxes. Even a small roadside vendor makes enough black money equivalent to a fresher's salary in India.
The government, private, and bank scams are an example of how our tax money gets into the hands of some people. We are talking about millions of rupees people hiding in their homes.
This clearly shows how at a grass root level our tax system needs to be changed. The government should come out of these petty politics and focus on the actual problems. Till that time we as the responsible taxpayer citizens of India should come together to remind the government that, we are not here to be ignored or suppressed. We will not pay a single rupee in tax till the time everyone becomes responsible to pay their taxes or the government restructure our tax system.
