Excerpts

The governments that can successfully manage these issues in turn determine their rate of success in collecting revenues they require to remain self-sustainable and responsive to the needs of the citizens. The State of Gujarat in India serves as a good example, which not very long ago was struggling to meet its fiscal obligations, but has, just in the last few years, reformed its management and become an example of good governance that should be emulated by other state or provincial governments. While India still ranks a lowly 171 amongst 183 economies on the ease of paying taxes, its state of Gujarat, on the other hand, is leading the way by showing other governments on how to deliver first and demand reciprocity later in the shape of taxes. As its governance improved, the tax collection responded in the same measure. For example, today Ahmadabad’s corporate payments on average and as percentage of the State’s budget exceed their counterparts in South Asia by 2 to 1 and nearly 7 to 1 when compared to similar sized areas within China and Brazil (BRIC members). So, what did the Gujarati government do right to achieve this? The answer: Nothing new or revolutionary, but simply the implementation, in letter and in spirit, of the basic prerequisites that all economists, politicians or bureaucrats must have known or at least heard numerous times.

If the above question what did the Gujarati government do right to achieve this? is asked to HK we will say without second thoughts that .. The whole credit should be given to people of Gujarat who voted Shri Narendra Modi and his Nationalist Ideology in power …without getting trapped in the Misinformation campaigns of Anti Indian Media and Congress. .
