Picking on the one-time compliance window announced in the Budget as a “Fair and Lovely” scheme, Gandhi had said this was nothing but a move to turn the black money into white.
He said, “Modi ji brought a Fair and Lovely Yojna to convert black money into white and blamed him of destroying UPA?s work against insurgency in Jammu and Kashmir and terrorism.”
”Modi ji had promised that he will put people with black money behind bars, now they have come up with ways to save those people,Rahul Gandhi said in the Lok Sabha.
The 2016-17 Budget speech has proposed that 60 per cent of withdrawal from contribution to EPF made after April 1 this year will be subject to tax. An official press note later said the demands for levying tax only on the accumulated returns on the corpus and not on the contributed amount was under government’s consideration. The total portfolio under the pension and provident fund scheme is estimated to be around Rs 6.5 lakh crore.
