Indian households facing the biggest ever squeeze
Many of you participated in the recent survey on earnings, savings, petrol/diesel prices, and rising price of essentials. Below is the full report: Mood of the Consumer Survey - July 2021
The survey clearly indicates how the rising prices of petrol, diesel and essentials along with COVID impact on earnings and savings is leading to a massive squeeze for many households.
We need the Central Govt to provide much needed excise relief. You are requested to share the same as widely as possible with all your whatsapp groups, social media as well as email contacts. It is important that the Government understands the pain and acts.
As always, do share your inputs on the subject! more
To the so called Poor People Govt is giving a lot of Subsidies, whereas to middle class there is no subsidy. That is why I am talking of problems being faced by Middle Class. If Govt stops all type of Subsidies then half of our problems will be automatically resolved. more
Freebies and irresponsible Subsidies must be Stopped more
Central govt.is having one agenda; state govt having different agenda. Both are on different lines due to political considerations. Net result people are not bothering about govt. And adhering to their whimsical pattern. No solution Only suffering and discomfort. more
The present Government is not doing anything to support the common man. ESMA was repealed much to the detriment of cooking oil & food prices. Only industry interested are heeded. more
States are not promptly using Central Funds even in Pandamic Situation more
Patrol and Diesel Price rise continuously is affecting the Common Middle Class Citizens. As it directly affecting the Transportation Charges. With Covid so many Businesses are closed or are on the verge of Closing, thus causing Unemployment. For Senior Citizens, the interest rates on their FDs have reduced thus their income has reduced, they are badly affected. I think time has come when Patrol and Diesel must be brought under GST. This will give desired relief to Middle Class Citizens. more
Why worried for the so called middle class people only, the class you probably belong to, forgetting the fact that more than 60% of our people are belonging to poverty or below poverty line (BPL), and are worst affected due to recent all round price rise. When the middle class people are unable to cope up with the situation, one can easily imagine the plight of majority of our people with no guaranteed source of income to feed themselves and their families three times a day neither their income is suitably compensated to neutralise the inflation. The recent all round price rise has, particularly, put these classes of people in unbearable hardships and pathetic condition. more
Present central government must do more than what it is doing today to counter Covid impact and also reduce corruption in the government.IAS should not get a feeling that they are running the country.Bureaucrats need clipping and that means clipping the judge and lawyer role which the IAS have grabbed with the active support of the politicians as both these elements survive on sucking the public blood. Giving higher DA calls for government releasing equalised assistance to all citizens of the country to neutralise inflation effect on their spending capacity.Public can not be made to pay for inflation caused because of faulty policy of government and the higher DA is again slapped on public to pay to the exchequer. more
States are ruled at Selfish Political interest. more
