Abolish Personal Income Tax
India, our country, having population of 125 Crore is a country where only approximately 3 Crore of us pay personal Incone Tax amounting to roughly Rs. 3 Lakh Crore. At the outset this figure of tax payer may appear very less in compare to our population. But on closer examination you will find that there is no scope to expand the tax base at present on account of our poverty, dependence on agriculture, massive unorganised sector employees, 13% or above educated unemployment rate, majority of organised sector employee earning less than taxable income etc. In view of the same the cost of running the Income Tax department to collect personal income tax would probably outweigh the merit of having the department of income tax itself. . Historically speaking, the concept of Income Tax is relatively very new. It started in 1799 in Great Britain to finance arms and ammunition for French Revolution. However, two years later it was scrapped. It came back in Great Britain in middle of 1800 to meet the budget deficit. In later part of 1800 it was introduced in another country and that is - United States to pay for the cost of its Civil War after slavery was abolished. But in early 1900 the United States Supreme Court declared it Unconstitutional. Later a constitutional amendment was made in United States to make Income Tax legal. In India Income Tax first came for few years towards mid and end of 1800. Starting in the year 1922 under British it became a permanent fixture in India. Looking back at the history and evolution of Income Tax one can certainly say that it was an after thought as a quick fix solution to an immediate problem that a nation encountered on account of war or it's deficit. The moral or ethical question on Income Tax arises on the notion of an individual living his or her life for the State. While under monarchy it was clear that an individual is a subject and he or she lived for the King or the State... in a democracy the individual or the people are supreme being a citizen where the State belongs to him or her and not vice - versa. In the other words - under monarchy an individual's life belonged to the King but in Democracy an individual is a Free person having free will. In this scenario to collect income tax on an individual's income amounts to forcing them to live for the State infringing on his or her freedom and free will to earn and to spend. Incase of business paying income tax or corporate tax one can understand the reasoning. A business thrives on the strength of the society and government's role in keeping the society thriving. Therefore a business owe it to the people to pay taxes for the profit it makes in order to create infrastructure for common good. Indirect tax is a tax one pays on the goods or services one consumes. Apart from items of basic necessities to live life... every thing else being taxed is quite right since an individual is consuming out of free will to fulfil its desire and wants. Such money collected being spent by the State on defence, police, law and order, judiciary etc is for smooth functioning of the society and in interest of an individual to maintain his or her freedom and free will. Keeping in view all the above contention - I, here by this petition request and ask our Prime Minister to abolish Personal Income Tax. It's a concept of British Rule which should be done away. Logically speaking, the money thus put in our hands will either be saved or spent. In both scenario our county will gain. First will spur investment and second will spur consumption. To meet the shortfall in revenue of the State... corporate tax or income tax on business can be raised by 5% to 10%. Since consumption will increase the business will not mind paying extra as their overall profit will increase. As there will be more saving - the access to more capital at lower rate will be available to business to expand its business. The business gains further. It is said government is the worst spender because of its inefficiency, lethargy, leakages and overall red tape. It is further said that an individual is much better and smarter spender in compare to government because of non presence of the above. The idea of Personal Income Tax can be revisited later in few decades when India and Indians by large becomes wealthier and richer second to none in the world. Once again requesting and asking you Mr. Prime Minister to abolish Personal Income Tax in larger and long term interest of our country and us... we the people.

NATIONAL CAMPAIGN FOR BARATH RATNA AWARD TO GREAT P.V NARASIMHA RAO GARU
TO NARENDRA MODI JI, PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA INDIA Respected Prime Minister Sir Sub: - Requisition – Former P.M PV Narasimha Rao Garu be considered for Bharath Ratna Award While thanking you for the support being extended by your kind selves we would like to bring to your kind notice a very important issue with regard to conferring Bharath Ratna posthurnously on Late Pv Narasimha Rao garu Former Prime Minister which required proper direction from your end. Pamulaparti Venkata Narasimha Rao (28 June 1921 – 23 December 2004) often referred to as the "Father of Indian Economic Reforms". “Not taking any decisions is itself a decision.” This iconic statement by the ninth Prime Minister of India, PV Narasimha Rao, made at a time when he was in charge of steering the country away from a state of collapse, can be deemed eternal in a sense. He took hold of the Prime Minister’s office at a time when the country was on the brink of economic ruin. Additionally, terror still lurked in states like Punjab, Naxal communalism was at a high and India was under pressure to express its allegiance to either America or Russia, a decision which would impact its core, in several ways. The world, quite simply, was waiting for this unknown man from Telangana to crack. But not only did he refuse to pop a vein, he went ahead with determination to change the course of the country and in doing so, managed to rewrite its economic and political history. While Rao’s tenure witnessed more than its fair share of challenges, the ones that stood out in particular were the events following the 1993 Bombay blasts and the Latur earthquake that affected thousands of lives in Maharashtra. After receiving word about the twelve blasts in Mumbai, a first of its kind in India, Rao garu immediately set into motion. Without regards to his personal safety and much against the advice of his ministers, he personally visited each of the affected areas. Upon learning about the Pakistani involvement in the blasts, he didn’t give in to impulse and call for an instant counter-attack. Instead, he asked the Indian intelligence community to invite their foreign counterparts from the US, UK and other Western European countries to send their counter-terrorism experts to Bombay and examine the proof for themselves. In terms of the Latur earthquake, which witnessed the death of about 10,000 people and the displacement of several more, Rao didn’t waste any time to launch the process of relief-management. He began to structure and implement a series of operations which would mitigate the extent of the damage – through schemes of economic and social reconstruction. Rao Garu was instrumental in handling and curbing the separatist movements in both Punjab and Kashmir. In Punjab, he did this by holding elections to bring about a stable system of governance, no matter the narrow cut of the electoral base. His government also introduced the ‘Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act’ (TADA), India’s first anti-terrorism legislation, which gave wide powers to the Indian law enforcement agencies while dealing with infiltrators from Pakistan. Several attempts were made on his life and news of his own party members planning to overthrow him, was abound in the country back then. However, Rao’s feet were planted firmly on the ground and for the course of those five years at the very least; he remained a formidable force to be reckoned with. Later, as part of his ‘Look East ‘ policy, he expanded India’s engagements with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) – which provided a great boost to the Indian economy as well. P.V.Narasimha Rao was an active freedom fighter during the Indian Independence movement. His tenure as Chief minister of Andhra Pradesh is well remembered even today for his land reforms and strict implementation of land ceiling acts in Telangana region. 7 times he elected as a Member of Parliament (LOKSABHA). Rao Garu had great interest in Indian literature among 16 languages. He was very fluent in many languages including his mother tongue Telugu, Marathi, Hindi, English, Tamil, Urdu, Kannada, Oriya, Sanskrit, French, and Spanish. He was able to speak 17 languages. Due to his college education in Fergusson College In Pune, he was very prolific reader and speaker of Marathi. He translated the great Telugu literary work Veyipadagalu of Kavi Samraat Viswanatha Satyanarayana into Hindi as Sahasraphan. He also translated Hari Narayan Apte's Marathi novel Pan Lakshat Kon Gheto? (But who thinks?) In to Telugu. He wrote The Insider (novel) He was also invited to be the chief guest of Akhil Bhartiya Marathi Sahitya Sanmelan where he gave speech in Marathi. He also appointed Subramanian Swamy, an Opposition party member as the Chairman of the Commission on Labour Standards and International Trade. This has been the only instance that an Opposition Party member was given a Cabinet rank post by the ruling party. He also sent Opposition leader Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, to represent India in a UN meeting at Geneva. P.V. Narasimha Rao was a man of many proportions and layers, but when it came to his country, he had only one goal in mind – to make India reach the best of its insurmountable potential. Therefore We citizens of India strongly feel that conferring Bharath Ratna Posthumously on Late Pv Narasimha Rao will be a fitting tribute to him for his exceptional service and performance of highest order which made the country proud. We request that Pv Narasimha Rao be considered for Bharath Ratna award. We have utmost confidence in you, our Hon’ble Prime Minister who is serving the country with distinction as the Pradhan Sevak. We seek your kind and benevolent indulgence and fervently hope that our suggestions given on behalf of crores of Citizens of India merit your kind attention and approval. The blessings of our Citizens will be upon you – and our country – for a favorable decision from your kind self, Sir. Thanking you Sir and May God give you all the strength to serve our country, From:- A.RAJESH KUMAR, CHAIRMAN SAMSKAR FOUNDATION BHARATHIYA JANATHA PARTY TIRUPATI 18-3-6/8 Santhi Nagar, Kadhi colony, Tirupati-517501, email@example.com 7396447960, 8897100971

Concerns over The Validity of NRC
I am an Indian and so are my parents, who were born before 1971. But as in those days people were not much aware about proper documentation. Many aged people like them don’t have either birth certificates or any sort of land documents. Some people are/were uneducated, some were non government employees.Are those facts their fault? Are these facts enough to denounce them as not Indian citizens? If that is the case, then the current ruling party has been voted to power in 2019 on the basis of such foreigner votes.We, as Indians by Birth(as per the Constitution) do not want Indians to be stripped of their citizenship on the basis of mere documents that common and poor people cannot provide to prove that they have come to India before 1971 or 1951, whichever the cutoff year may be. It may also happen that valid citizens who for some reason are not able to produce such proofs are also demarcated as foreigners.Hence, we have the following proposition:THE CUT OFF YEAR FOR CITIZENSHIP SHOULD BE ATLEAST THE LATEST VOTING YEAR 2019 where Indian people spent their valuable vote to choose representatives of the Indian Government. This means that people who have voted the current government to power should automatically be considered valid Indian citizens. Else the validity of the elected government comes under question. And if that cannot happen, NRC SHOULD NOT BE IMPLEMENTED ANYWHERE IN INDIA. .We demand for a cancellation of NRC.
Petition to Mr. Narendra Modi
Should India use 321 Acres, 340 rooms worth ₹96,500 Crores to house our President?
Dear Prime Minister Modi Ji, The present President House complex being used for housing country’s President, with its forest, is spread over 321 Acres of very expensive public land. The price for this property is approximately ₹96,500 Crores ($13.75B). Housing our President in such a sprawling accommodation is illogical on follow accounts: 1. It is extremely difficult for people to get houses in Delhi even at high rates and people working in Delhi have to go and live in satellite cities. Under such circumstances, using 321 Acres land for housing one family amount’s to waste of natural resource. 2. Present Rashtrapati Bhawan was created for Governor General of India as a representative of British Empire. It was created as symbol of power and superiority of occupant over masses. Bharat’s President living in such a massive accommodation does not represent the true values of our democracy and equality of President with common man. President of democratic Bharat should represent the connection with masses and therefore should reside in a more modest accommodation. 3. Bharat is a poor country. Most people of the country are poor & have difficulty having a proper house. The country cannot continue to waste resources by housing its president in a 321 acres adobe in addition to expenses incurred in maintaining 340 rooms in luxurious condition. 4. If the land and building is developed and put to good use, not only people will get housing and other facilities within Delhi, but also the money so unlocked can be used for other projects of public benefits. Even the presidential accommodation of richest and most powerful country United States is built on modest 18 Acres and has 132 rooms. Therefore, we the people of Bharat, hereby request you to please develop a more suitable housing for President of the country and unlock the resources being wasted and put them for public use.
