While discussing on corruptions, particularly, in the Income Tax Department, the officials of the department are always accused of demanding bribes from the assessees, which is only half truth. If the income is honestly declared and the return is prepared and submitted truthfully, I think there will be no occasion for demanding and payment of bribes., though, there may be some exceptions. In such an ideal situation, even generation of black money could have become to standstill. But the situation prevailing in the country is just reverse. Large number of our people do have the tendency of hiding their actual income and to get their tax returns cleared by the departments concerned by hook or crook and then blaming the people of these departments for asking for bribes. The black money so generated by evading tax payment is generally used in immoral ways and in benami transactions, which even inflate the prices, particularly, in real estate transactions & prices. more
