- Every constructed property deal above Rs.100.00 Lacs to be put on public e-auction for acquisition at 20% extra premium for 3 days. This can be avoided if the buyer agrees to pay 5% Property Tax on the deal value. Black Money is mostly consumed in property deals so to deter or earn out of it.

We need complete overhaul of budget making & thinking process. Let the economists step back and management consultants and seasoned entrepreneurs take the front seat. Its a CEO's call and not Economist's shot.
Certainly Budget can bring mental peace & happiness to the society if the time taken for approvals come down, if the tax laws are simple and rates are affordable, procedures are simple, govt interference is lesser, sector need encouragement gets adequate push and support. All these efforts and initiatives can bring Happiness in the society. Finance Ministry's actions directly impact with HRD & Home Ministry's burden.
