Should Indian Farmers pay income tax?

I was watching closely the protests by the Tamil Nadu farmers at Delhi recently and was intrigued by why income tax is not levied on farmers. I understand that some of the poorer farmers cannot afford to pay income tax but can’t the government set some limit,say, income from farming above 15 lakhs per annum (which is a very reasonable lower limit compared to the rest of the population) is taxable. It seems very unfair that some rich farmers take advantage of the loan waivers and get the benefits from the tax payers’ money.

It is high time that we stop being emotional about farming and farmers and consider them as ordinary citizens who have a responsibility to contribute to the development of the country like people from other professions.

About Jose Gauravselvam Kagoo

Hi There!I am Jose Gauravselvam Kagoo. I am an Indian by birth but consider myself a citizen of the world ( which enables me to shamelessly switch nationalities during cricket matches). I would love to be a member of the Iluminati and am currently researching ways to contact them. When I am not doing research on the Illuminati, I like to read extensively, watch movies and dissect everyday aspects of life. All the views expressed here are my own.
