I think I have a seemingly simple answer for this issue. I share it below. It is for others to judge whether it is worth considering.
The idea is that every single individual on attaining the age of 60-normal age of retirement, one should be entitled to a minimum Pension of say Rs.10,000. Kindly bear with me and go through this seemingly simple solution.
We are both service providers and consumers. As consumers it is our sacred duty to contribute towards the welfare of service providers. As consumers most of us withdraw money from the Banks to spend it for getting services from the Service Givers. Introduce a cess by way of progressive rate of TDS against withdrawals. In other words as consumers we give mandate (akin to ECS) to the Banks to deduct TDS against withdrawals made by us which evidently we are going to obtain goods/services. The total withdrawals are reported to be 800-1000 lakh crores per annum. A flat rate of 2% TDS should give a fund of around 16/20 lakh crores per annum without any Paper work or human intervention. This huge amount can be set aside in reserve to meet the demands of Pension and other Social Security measures. Say we determine a Pension of Rs.10000 pm for a person who attains the age of 60 and ceases to be in employment. If one retires for some compelling reasons he would start getting a somewhat lesser Pension on graded basis and this amount would increase in stages with every advancing age of 51, 52 and so on and on reaching the age of 60 he would start getting automatically the optimum pension.
With the advanced technology at our disposal combined with the efficient Banking (we are lucky to have) it should be possible to conceive a scheme on the above lines. In fact all the fund requirements like Revenue, contingency fund etc. can be met by this progressive TDS.
Friends especially like active and expert members like Srinivasan Mohanram of Tamil Nadu to give a serious thought to the above seemingly simplistic idea and decide whether it is workable with necessary improvements.
It would be my privilege to contribute further within my own capacity and ability to this exercise.
I would urge Shri Guptaji - the prime mover to please give a thought to this proposal. Thanks and regards.
I look forward to detailed comments (friendly or hostile) from my friends. The sole idea is to find a simple but simple suggestion. Hope you would oblige me who is penning this from Chembur in Mumbai. = Love and good wishes = Vishwanathan (firstname.lastname@example.org) more
