One family declares an income of Two Trillion Rupees!
Fantastic! If there were twenty other families like that, other Indians can quit their jobs and do whatever they like – writing philosophy, climbing Everest, practicing Holistic health, etc. The tax from the twenty-one families can be distributed to the rest of us, and we will take human life to a new plane!
What looks like small potatoes in comparison to the income of the Mumbai family, is the income declared by a poor businessman from Ahmadabad! He has declared only 150 Billion rupees! It is hard to save much in Ahmadabad nowadays!
Our real heroes are, however, two officers of the Karnataka Govt. who on their Govt. salaries have managed to save Rs 1.52 Billion!
You see, vegetables are cheap in Bangalore! A frugal family can always save one or two billion rupees!
