Use Income Tax for the good sign now

Why do we pay Income Tax ?

Innocent-Answer : So that the government can use it for the benefit of all.

In reality : as we all know, government funds are being siphoned
off shamelessly by our politicians and beaurocrats.
Corruption is rampant at all levels, be it roads in pune,
or packages for farmers, or projects at the national level.

Today, we pay around 1/3rd of our income as tax to the government.
Most of us feel frustrated because we know that
a lot of it is going waste.

There is much work that needs to be done, for farmers, labourers,
children, education, health, infrastructure.
But after paying 1/3rd as tax, not many people are willing to
donate more for social good.

It is our right to decide how our tax money is being spent.

We could ensure that at least part of the income tax that we pay is spent
for the good. How ? By spending it ourselves.
The proposal is that we should have an option not to pay 10\% of the
income tax to the government, but instead, donate it to local NGOs that we trust.
Maybe we could also donate it to sponsor food-for-work schemes in a
particular village that we can monitor.

It will happen that some people will take disadvantage of this,
and pay neither the tax,nor the NGOs. That money will remain with them.
It is still better than letting it go to the corrupt system.

A lot of the educated middle class, will however spend it well.
And make a difference.


Power to the people !!
Jai Hind !!

    There are many ways to spend this money for good. Even it can be done at organization level by adapting some school / village for development or donate the money collecting at organization level. If people don't spend this amount and keep it with them, pr

    Corruption at various levels is of course the obvious answer to why problems do not get a permanent fix. But I think it is more than that. I think it is also because we as a citizenry are very accepting of the poor public infrastructure that we find aroun
