BUDGET FOR POOR &PRO FARMER Every year the Indian budget is highlighted thus. It is in fitness of things ,if it is also designated as such. The economic classes are very poor., poor, middle class, lower middle class, upper middle class, rich, super rich and poor rich.
The focus is always on poor and farmers with middle class expectations always dashed against the rocks of reality. They are dispensable and can be ignored as voters that do not tilt the balance, By definition poor possess nothing, without means of subsistence or sorry condition, which apply mutandis mutandi to these very poor class rulers of Indian citizens Only the rulers can best qualify to be in very poor category, as they enjoy tax free salary designated as allowances. free electricity, travel by air and rail even for dependents, interest free loans for buildings cars, free postage, attendants, luxury of pension, allowances to celebrate National days The method of calculations, telephone, gas, free medical service even outside the country, free education for their wards should similarly be computed as perks,God knows what, In ordinary citizen`s case perks are computed for taxation, Lakhs of rupees income of these very poor category is exempted by self formulated law of exemptions. This is the poorest class of Indian citizens created after India became a democracy. No Pay commission exist to debate their dues and usually the last item on agenda is their raise of allowances, which is unanimously agreed without dissent or consent. Income to the tune of 35 lakhs and in between is tax free with all perks non computable for tax, Compare it with that of common citizen who is bled by direct taxes and various taxes under GST to the boot and to account for every penny as other source A farmer by definition is one who farms the land, whether his own or that of others. Our very poor Kings own thousands of acres of land. These farmers corner all subsidies, benefits and can claim tax free income amounting to crores and thus hav e an escape route to create black money. They do not toil or soil their hands but squeeze farm labour of last drop of blood, If any They are bonded to serve for life for wages that are questionable. They do not ever ask for loan waiver as banks write off nor they commit suicides .You will be shocked if disclosed the farm loan waiver in crores is to the advantage of these very poor class Remember all classes of citizens as aforementioned pay the same GST as super rich and billionaires for same item of use. There is no differentiation in prices, The prices for different economic classes do not differ. During the last five years the prices of daily commodities have hit the roof, but who cares as the very poor are taken care of by largess of the. Every successive Govt clamours from roof tops to be on the side of the poor It will be worthwhile thesis to identify the so called illusive poor and the farmer. Beisdes it has become a fashion to rob Peter and pay Paul as justification It was expected that black money unearthed by demonetization would reduce the burden of tax on average citizen. The very poor class does not tighten their belt, but very soon will adventure into raising their allowances as they are hit the worst Nelson Lopes Chinchinim
