Life insurance premiums should have exemption under a separate section. Any more than that allowed should be allowed to be claimed under sec 80C more  
ON GST : Many retail shop owners, to keep the sales below Rs.20 lakhs the threshold limit for registration under GST, accept the credit card payment in different names (same shop). There is a lot of evasion of GST and Income tax(split sales and account bogus cash expenses. The Government have to do the following to arrest / stop / reduce tax evasion , both direct and indirect tax.

1. Cash payments have to be restricted to Rs.500, The payments above Rs.500 have be paid through debit / credit cards / paytm / cheque or any other mode.
2. Registrations of all the shops which are having address/board have to be made compulsory inspite of threshold exemption limits for GST, which helps us to do surprise check.
3. Threshold exemption limits for GST have to be kept low.
4. Installed Production capacity / Actual Production of all the manufacturing units have to be reported in IT returns / GST returns, which will help for data analysis/ crunching.
5. Manual interventions have to be eliminated in a phased manner in GST also.
6. Having automated till assessment with Information Technology, the departments (both IT / GST) have to be ready by now, to do more analytical work than clerical work, to increase the tax payers base and stop tax evasion.

We all might have read reports / articles published on Economic Inequality prevailing in Inda and the world. It is worsening and gap widens day by day, which makes us to think on where is democracy heading to.

Wealth tax may be imposed on those few billionaires and the Wealth tax collected may be utilised only for the betterment of underprivileged / poor community.

It is not possible for the Government alone, to bring down the economic inequality prevailing in the country. The Billionaires and HNI should come forward and join hands with the Government, to frame policies and draw plans to bring down the economic equality. more  
Improve tax base by making all payment by electronic/card.It should be mandatory for all shopkeepers to give computerised receipt for all sales so that their real sales can be assessed.2.5 lakh is very low even maids and petty worker earn more then this.Tax rich agriculturist as country has 65% in agriculture and allied activity.Keep a watch on high spender and check if they are paying their tax properly.Education/computer education must be spread. more
