    Honesty starts at home. Unfortunately the Laws of the land and collusion between Babus, the excecutive( police, courts and detective agencies) and ministers have vitiated the entire country’s moral fibre. Congress party which was in power for six decades can take credit for all the negatives of life in India. CBDT who deal in all the tax matters have been the worst offenders. No wonder that DCIT has taken 25 lakhs as Divali Baxis! Hopefully Modi Ji would set the course right at least now and make life of the AAM ADMI more liveable in Bharath. The penalties are too l small and easily surmountable. A more fundamentalist body wedded to honesty is now required to set the course of India right instead of bending backwards to curry favour with bosses.
