  • a rule brought without professional thinking.

    why has the kyc and pan and aadhar compulsion campaign/activities carried out for past so many years when now govt thinks on asking for bank account details.

    is kyc/pan/aadahar not sufficient to know bank details.

    what about foreign travellers who have genuinely paid all amounts by cheque from saving banks as hardly reputed travel firms in india and or abroad operating in india deal in cash payments.
    this sounds unprofessionalism on part of the concerned departments or who knows after foreign trips by mnisters made with tax payers money (especiually made to swiss for the balck money slashed in the eu havens) the govt. thinks that tax payers can be taken for a ride.

    apparently will give rise to public keeping money in pots under the earth as in olden timEs and avoid keeping money in banks.
    better scrap THIS UNWANTED TIME AND MONEY WASTING LAWS. we await the official announcement of the real U-TURN formally by the government rather wasting time. is this ''SABKA SAATH SABKA VIKAAS''THE PM HAS BEEN INFORMING TIME AND AGAIN SCRAP UNWANTED RULES/LAWS BUT THIS IS THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW UNWANTED LAW.!!!!
