Students Who Find Jobs Abroad To Be Taxed

This is a deviation from 498A and related issues, but it fits in with the idiocy that appears to have taken over some of the ministries of the GOI. This time, it is the HRD ministry.

Here is the article

Basically the HRD ministry, headed by the accused in a 498A, Arjun Singh, has come up with another asinine proposal whereby students who graduate from the IITs and the IIMs (maybe other places too) will now need to pay if they find jobs in other countries. They are planning to call it “graduate tax” and “exit tax”,

If the country needs money so desperately, sure, no problem. I am sure the students will willingly pay taxes. Would GOI also consider widening the tax base to include, the friends and relatives of the ruling establishment? I guarantee that this will definitely bring in more money into the treasury than the taxing a few students.

GOI should remember, that it is the Indian students who have gone on to hold high positions in high tech US companies, and it is they who are contributing to the outsourcing boom in the country by steering business to India.

Any moron who suggests that expat students have not given back to their motherland, is just that, a moron.

Just another question. All of us pay taxes regularly and honestly. No choice there as we are taxed at source. The question I have is, what has the GOI given back to us, the average citizens? We can’t even walk into a govt office without having to pay a bribe.

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary. The author and his family haven't bribed any public official nor have they given in to the extortion. This blog aims to raise awareness of due process in India.
