    Hi

    “If the black money is brought back to India, only 20% tax will be deducted and the source will not be questioned.

    The rest 80% should be invested only in infrastructure development.”

    If this rule is implemented by Central Govt. it will be very helpful.

    Can taxguru communicated to the Government?
