“By abolishing Income Tax, country may lose the revenue of 2 Lakh Crore per year, but there are many simpler ways to generate much more revenue,” said Swamy. By auctioning 2G spectrum Rupees Two Lakh Crores , Coal block allocation can fetch 11 Lakh Crores, Bringing back Black money of 120 Lakh Crores and several other steps can increase revenue, he stated.
Apart from Income tax abolition, to win the hearts of large chunk of middle class people in the country, Government should focus on empowering farmers and encourage export of agricultural produce.India is the only country in the world where crops can be grown 12 months a year, Swamy said.
“The climate in America, European countries ,China and other countries, even with the best of Agricultural technology, does not allows to get 3 crops a year but India can grow agricultural produce throughout the year due to conducive atmosphere and fertile land,” Swamy said.
If Government provides power, water , seeds and pesticides at a nominal cost, Agricultural globalisation gets a big boost and Indian economy will shine in the international market, as the cost of Agricultural products in India is the least in the world, he added.
