As a gesture of supporting Shri Narendra Modi’s venture against black money we sent out the following petition to PM Cell on 13th November 2016.
Our Hon’ble PM has brought a best measure to weed out black money by abolishing 500/1000 rupee notes. However at least in Chennai the following are majorly thriving black money hubs.
- Merchants refusing cashless transactions by charging at least 3.5% over and above the bill price. They want everything in cash. And some merchants charge extra for giving receipt too.
- Builders force people to pay a percentage in cash and a percentage by cheque (some play here by asking to write a cheque to a different name too).
- Auto wallahs are another big source of black money mafia. The Government run complaints helpline is a catastrophic failure and autos continue to fleece passengers with their skyrocketing prices. And incidentally it is said that autos are owned by powerful people and hence a good collection of auto operational revenues reach them.
- IRCTC, Government run Bus Booking Services like APSRTC, KSRTC, TNSTC, Electricity Payment Services by TANGEDCO charge higher premium charges for cashless transactions which is a discouraging trend.
Can you kindly look into these too?
