  4. 4. Government, Its Policy, and Black Money Government is a expected to function for maximum good of all. Not possible !! Deviations do Exist and so do Anarchicts. Government should act as a regulator and interfere as minimum as possible.
  5. 5. Parallel economy as % of GDP • Developed countries – 8 to 20 % • Transition countries – 20 to 30 % • Developing countries – 25 to 50 %
  6. 6. Size of parallel economy • Rs 3034 crores in 1967-68 – 9.5 % of GDP • Rs. 46,867 crores in 1978-79 – 49 % of GDP – a 15-fold increase in 12 years • During 80s parallel economy grew faster than the GDP – 46.7 % vs 40 % (between 1980 and 1989)
  7. 7. Impact • High taxes result in cash transactions that go unaccounted • Under-declaration of deals skews market info • Affects the process of capital allocation • Upsets accuracy of economic forecasts • Erosion of public confidence on the system that leads to a vicious cycle
  8. 8. Have there been policies? • Tax amnesties have been provided • Permanent (Settlement Commission) and temporary (VDIS) • To promote better tax compliance • In return for immunity from prosecution
  9. 9. Tax Amnesties in India Year Authority Income Revenue Total % of total disclosed Collected Revenue revenue (INR Crores) (INR Crores) (INR Crores) 1951 N/A 70.20 10.89 N/A N/A 1965 Finance Act 52.18 30.80 N/A N/A 1965 Finance Act (2) 145.00 19.45 N/A N/A 1975 Voluntary 1587.89 249 2204 11.29 Disclosure 1985 Finance Act 10778.34 458.79 11858 3.87 1985 1997 Finance Act 33776.90 9729.02 38895 25.01 1997
  10. 10. The participants believe • Black money cannot be eradicated altogether • Although black money goes unrecorded it still trickles down to improve level of well-being • Participants feel so because – It provides G&S that are sometimes unavailable formally – It lubricates the working of the formal economy – Helps realize entrepreneurial endeavours
  11. 11. Would regulations help ? • Frequent tax audits and high penalties for evasion • Incentivisation of above-board transactions • Value Added Tax (VAT) encourages better compliance • Vigilance helps to a large extent (RTI, CVC) • Risk of being caught is not worth taking beyond a point
  12. 12. Are we getting there ? • High value transactions demand PAN • Cash transactions should be discouraged • Tax structures are being rationalized • Deductions will be phased out • Tax payment process has been simplified
  13. 13. The way out • Why should there be a policy? – Size of the parallel economy is reason enough – The economic impact of not having one is very high • How should the policy be ? – A mix of temporary and permanent provisions – More incentives for above-board transactions – Coupled with reduced taxes and better vigilance
