Guest of Honour Dr. Justice Arijit Pasayat, former Judge, Supreme Court of India and Vice Chairman SIT on black money also mentioned about the need to have zero tolerance against corruption and to work towards getting the legitimate dues for the betterment of society.
The author of the book, Shailendra Kumar, spoke about the reasons for writing this book on black money explaining in detail the various sources of black money. He said, “This book is an outcome of seven years of journey that I undertook in deciphering several aspects of black money at different points of time. The book ties two extreme ends. On one end lies the evil of corruption, the basis of black money and on the other end is the fortress of tax havens, bank secrecy laws and lack of cooperation from international jurisdictions.”
The book reveals how the relationship between corruption and black money has been institutionalized by vested interests of key stake-holders and beneficiaries. The book also highlights the need for judicial intervention in combating the issue of black money. In the backdrop of several ground realities, the book presents the much talked about The Black Money (Undisclosed Foreign Income and Assets) and Imposition of Tax Bill, 2015 in a different dimension and raises pertinent questions for serious contemplation by the Government.
