The issue of black money has been rocking India for a while. The unofficial estimations says that about Rs. 25 lakh crores of Indian black money is deposited in various banks in abroad. The issue first came up during 2009 Lok Sabha elections when the BJP has promised to disclose all the Swiss Accounts and bring all the black money saved in Swiss Bank back to India and also announced that it will be declared as national wealth. After the completion of elections, Baba Ramdev has taken up the issue of black money and went on Satyagraha for 8 days during June 2011. Though no immediate decision has been expected from the Govt. of India, it has come up with an idea to collect the feed back of citizens through internet. Now anybody can send a mail to Govt. of India expressing their concerns and opinions on black money. The email id is email@example.com . Public can send their ideas and views on tackling various issues arising out of the menace of black money.
The email firstname.lastname@example.org was created on the server of the National Informatics Centre. General public can immediately send their opinions. They can suggest any measures like imposing huge penalties and punishments and making penal provisions to deal with the issue of black money. In response to the growing concern over the scale and impact of black money from people of various walks of life, the Government of India has also formed a committee headed by Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Chairman Prakash Chandra. The committee will work on devising new strategies to deal with the issue. The Prakash Chandra committee is expected to submit its recommendations to the Center in the coming six months.
The email account email@example.com will be continuously monitored by the officials of Finance Ministry, Govt. of India. The ministry would place the aggregated messages / mails before Prakash Chandra committee.
