Most of these will already be reported through indirectly. I believe if a person does not report he / she can be questioned. This probably is intended to increase tax compliance and to bring eligible persons in to the tax net. Very few people (a small percentage) pay taxes. more  
Subramanium Swamy has been advocating abolition of Income tax altogether.
I think govt should appoint an experts committee to examine the pros & cons of his proposal.
IT compliance is becoming more & more complex. more  
This is all done so that selected persons can be targeted . more  
I think this makes filing taxes more complex. I don’t know how many will comply. I am not sure why we need to report some of the items mentioned here. eg. Foreign and domestic travel or tour remittance. Do you think any of our politicians will report all these cumbersome items more  
As it is Govt mandates use of PAN every where. IF there is computerisation then these details should automatically be available and come prefilled in Form 26 AS / Saral to avoid inconvenience to tax payers. Govt should make the process efficient and simple rather than making it more cumbersome for tax payers.

Then Govt cribs that less than 2 crore people in India file IT returns more
