To be honest, I think that is a good move by the government to bring the people who dont pay their taxes in the tax net. You may disagree with how this is being implemented. Why should only the salaried class keep paying these taxes when the people who actually have millions in their accounts go unnoticed. I didnt had the name in the active tax payer list before due to an issue which later got sorted out, at that point the indus CR manager told me that they have been getting calls from MPAs, MNAs and army personnels for safarish to waive these taxes for them or their relatives but they are not sparing anyone.
The people who already pay taxes can get this adjusted in the income tax that gets deducted from their salaries, so this doesnt hurt the ones already paying.
