2: Its Govt.inefficiency for not bringing the significant %population under tax Bracket.
If all govt machnaries work properly & collect just Rs 10,000.00 from all citizenss,excluding BPL citizens,then there will be enough money from IT itself for smooth functioning of the country.Ufcourse you should keep-out kalmadis,rajas,diksit,etc.
MMS/N.Murthy should be appointed as life long financial advisor to Govt & some young blood should be PM(not rahul gandhi).

4: Per Capita Income of India is Just Rs. 38,084
and Income Tax collected from per Payer is Rs. 1,33,066
That is nearly 3.5 times more than per capita Income. Don't you think there is some conceptual error in our taxation system?

Why people don't pay Tax? here are some excuses.

1. I am not a Government Servant
2. What is the Personal Benefit?
3. I am not so Rich?
4. Government didn't help me when I was in crisis.
5. I can't Rely on Government.
6. I don't like to bribe any one.
7. What will happen when I will not pay Tax?
8. No body came at my home to collect Tax.
9. I have no time for this foolish job.
10. I didn't get any benefit from Government of India.

Have u any answer for these excuses?

6: No wonder Anna Hazare has gained so much of popularity. We are experts in diverting attention of the Government when we want to. We the people are so corrupt within ourselves and we want to blame the leaders for everything. High time to go through our Responsibilities as Citizens.

I DO AGREE WITH YOU. IN INDIA INCOME TAX RECEIPT IS 17% OF TOTAL REVENUE RECEIPT, WHEREAS UK 27% AND USA 43%.
WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BRING NOTICE OF CONCERNED GOVT. DEPT.MINISTRY IF ANY THING IS GOING WRONG INSTEAD OF BLAMING
