Five private telecom companies cheated the government by understating their revenue.

Five private telecom companies, viz., Tata Teleservices, Telenor, Videocon, Reliance Jio, Quadrant (a Videocon group firm), have understated their revenue by over Rs.14,800 crores in 2014 - 15 and have cheated the government to the tune of Rs.2,578 crore. The CAG report has stated this. By understating their revenue, these companies have cheated the government in the payment of licence fee, spectrum usage charge and ‘interest applicable on delay in payment’. As regards Reliance Jio, the cheating is done in “revenue sharing on realised forex gain”. This is not the first time that the private telecom companies are cheating the government by understating their revenues. However, the private companies continue to be the “darlings” of the government, whether it is Congress or BJP.

Only one Indian has taxable income over Rs.100/- crores.

India is a country with a 100 dollar billionaires. Still, when it comes to payment of income tax, all these dollar billionaires become “paupers”. Yes, this is the reality. According to the data released by the government, for the financial year 2014 – 15, only one Indian has disclosed that his taxable income is over Rs.100 crore. We can understand to what extent tax cheating is taking place in this country, and how the government remains as a silent spectator to these cheatings. Further, according to the data, only 3% Indians (4.1 crore) filed income tax returns in 2014-15 and only 1.6% actually paid income tax. Nearly 50% of tax assesses who filed a return, declared zero taxable income. There was just one taxpayer who declared taxable income of over Rs.100 crore and paid Rs.238 crore as tax.

Why BSNL went into loss - Misrepresentation of fact in the Parliament.

Time and again, it was reiterated by the erstwhile Hon'ble Communications Minister, shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, that BSNL was not allowed by the government to expand it's networks for ten years. This statement was made by shri Prasad, in view of the fact that, all the tenders floated by BSNL, between 2006 to 2012, were cancelled by the then government. This is the real reason behind BSNL's going into loss. However, the present Hon'ble Minister for Communications, shri Manoj Sinha, has given a totally misleading reply in this regard, on the floor of the Parliament. Replying to a question raised in the Lok Sabha on 02-08-2017, shri Manoj Sinha has stated that the inability of BSNL and MTNL to make timely investment for upgradation of their networks, as one the important reasons for their going into loss. This is nothing but, a misrepresentation of fact.
