Yes, Ease of Leaving was announced by Jaitley in LS



ARE YOU STILL WONDERING that how diamond czar Nirav Modi (NiMo) and his uncle, who is also a jeweler, Vimul Choksi, could so easily leave the country after certifying ‘Ease of Doing Business’ the flagship programme of Modi government?

You should not, because this path-breaking scheme was unveiled in the parliament by none other than Finance Minister of India, Mr. Arun Jaitley, in his Union Budget 2018-19 speech.
---------
"Now, our government has taken Ease of Doing Business further by stressing on ‘Ease of Leaving’ for the common men (sic) of this country."
---------
Joking? No, this enlightening information is revealed by former Union Finance Minister and senior BJP leader, Yashwant Sinha, in an article in Indian Express.
Sinha quoted the text of the Jaitley’s speech, "Now, our government has taken Ease of Doing Business further by stress on ‘Ease of Leaving’ for the common men (sic) of this country, especially for those belonging to poor & middle class of the society."

So now we know that NiMo, who told us that diamonds are forever, was just implementing the government’s initiative in letter and spirit.

Only difference is that benefactors of this ‘Ease of Leaving’ scheme are not those belonging to poor or middle class of the society but diamond merchants.

Two days earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi while speaking at Global Investors Summit in Mumbai informed us that previous governments only knew Latkana, Atkana and Bhatkana. But it seems that he was telling his countrymen that his government rather believes in Lutana, Bhagana and Bhulana.

India is a corrupt nation. The stain of it is so pervasive in our everyday lives that it should hardly surprise us when big scams are unearthed, periodically. In fact, what is surprising is that they don’t happen, or aren’t reported, more often, writes Udayan Mukherjee, Consulting Editor, CNBCTV 18, in his article, ‘Ease of doing scams’ again in Indian Express.

"Previous governments only knew Latkana, Atkana and Bhatkana." But it seems that PM was telling his countrymen that his government rather believes in Lutana, Bhagana and Bhulana.

Further Mukherjee writes that in 2017 (Note the year-Ed.), India was the most corrupt nation in the entire Asia Pacific region, according to Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index. We may be taking baby steps up the ease of doing business ladder but on an ease of doing scams index, we are the uncrowned champions.
 

In the light of the scam at PNB, the government’s recent bailout package of over Rs 2 lakh crore to PSU banks seems like a cruel joke. How can these banks, crooked at worst and incompetent at best, be given such vast amounts of public money without first putting in systems to ensure that it will not be frittered away like this? asks Udayan.
----------
We may be taking baby steps up the ease of doing business ladder but on an ease of doing scams index, we are the uncrowned champions.
----------
This ease of doing scams has again been proved by Likhte Likhte Love Ho Jaye wale Rotomac Pen-master Vikram Kothari and now don’t be surprised if in coming days more ‘Made in India’ entrepreneurs prove their mettle and make NaMo proud by their initiatives.

So, be a braveheart and adopt your Ease of Leaving programme even more efficiently or you will be left with Pakoda start-ups only earning Rs 200 daily. Woh bhi Rozgar hai ke nahin?
