This is so shocking…. ….If black money deposits was an Olympics event…. India would have won a gold medal hands down. The second best Russia has 4 times lesser deposit. U.S. is not even there in the counting in top five! India has more money in Swiss banks than all the other countries combined!

Recently, due to international pressure, the Swiss government agreed to disclose the names of the account holders only if the respective governments formally asked for it.. Indian government is not asking for the details….. marks for guessing why?

We need to start a movement to pressurise the government to do so! This is perhaps the only way, and a golden opportunity, to expose the high and mighty and weed out corruption!

Please read on……and forward to all the honest Indians to… somebody is forwarding to you…….and build a ground-swell of support for action ! Is India poor, who says? Ask the Swiss banks. With personal account deposit bank of $1,500 billion in foreign reserve which have been misappropriated, an amount 13 times larger than the country’s foreign debt, one needs to rethink if India is a poor country?

DISHONEST INDUSTRIALISTS, scandalous politicians and corrupt IAS, IRS, IPS officers have deposited in foreign banks in their illegal personal accounts a sum of about $1500 billion, which have been misappropriated by them. This amount is about 13 times larger than the country’s foreign debt. With this amount 45 crore poor people can get Rs 1,00,000 each.

This huge amount has been appropriated from the people of India by exploiting and betraying them. Once this huge amount of black money and property comes back to India , the entire foreign debt can be repaid in 24 hours. After paying the entire foreign debt, we will have surplus amount, almost 12 times larger than the foreign debt. If this surplus amount is invested in earning interest, the amount of interest will be more than the annual budget of the Central government. So even if all the taxes are abolished, then also the Central government will be able to maintain the country very comfortably.

Some 80,000 people travel to Switzerland every year, of whom 25,000 travel very frequently. ‘Obviously, these people won’t be tourists.. They must be travelling there for some other reason,’ believes an official involved in tracking illegal money.. And, clearly, he isn’t referring to the commerce ministry bureaucrats who’ve been flitting in and out of Geneva ever since the World Trade Organisation (WTO) negotiations went into a tailspin!

Just read the following details and note how these dishonest industrialists, scandalous politicians, corrupt officers, cricketers, film actors, illegal sex trade and protected wildlife operators, to name just a few, sucked this country’s wealth and prosperity. This may be the picture of deposits in Swiss banks only. What about other international banks ?

Black money in Swiss banks — Swiss Banking Association report, 2006 details bank deposits in the territory of Switzerland by nationals of following countries :


Now do the math’s – India with $1,456 billion or $1.4 trillion has more money in Swiss banks than rest of the world combined. Public loot since 1947:

Can we bring back our money ? It is one of the biggest loots witnessed by mankind — the loot of the Aam Aadmi (common man) since 1947, by his brethren occupying public office. It has been orchestrated by politicians, bureaucrats and some businessmen.

The list is almost all-encompassing. No wonder, everyone in India loots with impunity and without any fear. What is even more depressing in that this ill-gotten wealth of ours has been stashed away abroad into secret bank accounts located in some of the world’s best known tax havens. And to that extent the Indian economy has been stripped of its wealth. Ordinary Indians may not be exactly aware of how such secret accounts operate and what are the rules and regulations that go on to govern such tax havens. However, one may well be aware of ‘Swiss bank accounts,’ the shorthand for murky dealings, secrecy and of course pilferage from developing countries into rich developed ones.

In fact, some finance experts and economists believe tax havens to be a conspiracy of the western world against the poor countries. By allowing the proliferation of tax havens in the twentieth century, the western world explicitly encourages the movement of scarce capital from the developing countries to the rich. In March 2005, the Tax Justice Network (TJN) published a research finding demonstrating that $11.5 trillion of personal wealth was held offshore by rich individuals across the globe.

The findings estimated that a large proportion of this wealth was managed from some 70 tax havens. Further, augmenting these studies of TJN, Raymond Baker — in his widely celebrated book titled ‘Capitalism’ s Achilles Heel: Dirty Money and How to Renew the Free Market System’ — estimates that at least $5 trillion have been shifted out of poorer countries to the West since the mid-1970.

It is further estimated by experts that one per cent of the world’s population holds more than 57 per cent of total global wealth, routing it invariably through these tax havens.

How much of this is from India is anybody’s guess.

    In the 'CASINO CAPITALISM' this financial menace is inevitable. The only remedy is to replace the 'casino capitalism' by ECONOMIC DEMOCRATIZATION. It means 'the economic rule of the workers, by the workers and for the workers'. It will establish 'Each Industry for All and All Industries for Each". The National Profit will be directly distributed to the workers and the black money will be completely abolished.and all workers (people) will be accountable to the nation and transparency will be established. The workers will not allow their money to flow into Swiss bank to keep in the secret account. Moreover all the banks will be directly owned by the workers throughout the world.

    This does not appear to be correct. If so much money .in currency notes, it will be known to the government of the country, whose currency is used. as there will be a big gap between currency issued and in actuall circulation. Similarly investment in Gold can be found out. Only jewellery cannot be found out.

    Nothing shock listening to this. !!!
    India is a prosperous country and all the prosper is sitting in SWISS bank !!! shouldn we Indian explore more details on this Issue….?? Govt of India should reveal how much is true out of it…and take appropriate actions on this.

    Simple example of a govt employee who is a clerk in taluk office … A clerk in this office will ATLEAST (worst case) takes home 1,000 per day. Probability of taking morethan 1000 is more….!! This is all apart from his salary given by govt of some where around 4,000/month !!!!!!!!!!!!
    same is the case with traffic police…constables….etc etc

    Then what should be the take home of Higher Officials (apart from salary given by govt)
    Just Imagine… and you would easily map the amount published by SWISS bank to be fact !!!

  5. whats the use says:

    It is possible in India to earn unaccounted money. Persons working in Tamil Nadu state-owned TASMAC shop earns an average income of Rs. 2000 per day. (They charge Re.1 to Rs. 2 per bottle over and above the MRP). Police personnel earns more than Rs. 1000 per day. (Have you ever noticed the body structure of a Railway Police or a Traffic Constable, they are double the size of a poor reserve police personnel). U can become minister, if you have got good connections! 'cause it's money democracy!
