The government has decided for conciliation on the issue of Income Tax of Rs. 14,000 to be paid by Vodafone. The Income Tax department has levied the tax considering all rules and regulations. But the government has succumbed to the pressure of the MNC and has now decided for conciliation. In a conciliation, it is clear that the tax will be drastically reduced and the government will be at heavy loss.
When MNCs and big corporates are involved, the government is always there to help them, even if it loses revenue. But if it is in the case of the workers or the common people, there will be no relaxation and kindness. Decisions and policies of the government, one after another, expose its pro-rich and anti-people attitude.
