    What is the net outcome of this income tax collections. Can the resources spent and the man hours wasted converted into cash match the efforts and tax revenues ? It is time to review the whole income tax and it needs to be thoroughly analysed /examined for its continuance . Out of 135 crore people not even 10 % file the returns is something unimaginable . Better to scrap it and introduce transaction tax and see that tax collections get augmented and majority of the people pay tax. Even wealth tax can be considered for those having wealth more than some cut off limit.

    Sir, in our country what facilities / benefits are provided by the government for tax payers.
    All schemes are for non tax payers.

    I expect, the government must provide some facilities / benefits for tax payers. This will encourage the will of the tax payers.
