The arrears of tax to be collected is increasing from year to year. Rs. 8.9 lakh crores is the tax arrears to be collected in 2014-15. It is to be noted that out of this, Rs. 7 lakh crore is direct taxes. The CAG has severely criticised for not collecting these.
it is understood that most of these arrears are from the big business and the corporates. Not only cheating the banks as in the case of Vijay Mallya, but also cheating the government. The government machinery is partly responsible for this ugly situation.
