India’s Black Money 2011: Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee said the tax department would launch prosecution proceedings in relevant cases from the names of account holders given by foreign banks


The news headline in Livemint & Hindustan Times reveals latest update on India’s Black Money…… here is the full article

*****  The PIL claims this is a “colossal failure to enforce the law” due to influential politicians in various parties being involved in the offences. *****

New Delhi: Ahead of a Supreme Court hearing on a public interest litigation (PIL) on black money, finance minister Pranab Mukherjee at a press conference on Tuesday detailed the government’s strategy to deal with black money and said the tax department would launch prosecution proceedings in relevant cases from amongst names of account holders given by foreign banks.

The government has the names of account holders in Liechtenstein’s LGT Bank and information given by German banks.

Mukherjee refused to name account holders citing secrecy clauses attached to legal frameworks with different countries which are used to obtain information on Indian account holders in foreign banks.

The information, however, has been given to the Supreme Court in a “sealed envelope,” Mukherjee, said. The names would be revealed when the tax department launches prosecution proceedings in relevant cases, he added.

The Supreme Court on 27 January resumes hearing a PIL on black money being held in European banks by Indians, initiated by senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani along with some former civil servants, who want the court to examine the issue as well as the falling standards of administration on the part of the government.

The PIL claims this is a “colossal failure to enforce the law” due to influential politicians in various parties being involved in the offences.

According to Mukherjee, the press conference had its roots in a suggestion by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asking the finance ministry to place in public domain the strategy to deal with black money. Singh had made the suggestion during a recent cabinet meeting which discussed amendments India had signed with its tax partners to elicit information on foreign bank accounts of Indians.

During a hearing on 19 January, the Supreme Court took a tough position against the union government, asking it why it was not disclosing the names of Indian citizens who allegedly stashed away large sums of unaccounted money in European banks from 2002 to 2006.

The main pillar of the government’s strategy to deal with the problem is to amend tax treaties with different countries to allow for information on bank details to be shared.

According to Mukherjee, a change in international opinion in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis had played a positive role in amending treaties. 

The G-20 countries had decided to jointly take on countries or tax jurisdictions, which were reluctant to share critical information, Mukherjee, said.

You Call That a Handshake? from an Observer’s point of view


Benutzer:dapete and Benutzer:Ezrimerchant shak...

Body language is fascinating to me. I often rely more on a person’s body language than their words. One of my favourite past times is people watching. I can happily spend an hour or two sitting in a cafe or bar and watching people interact with each other. I wouldn’t call myself a voyeur, but I’m definitely an observer. One thing I notice most about people is the way in which they greet one another or more importantly meet.

Through out my career I’ve shaken a lot of hands. Maybe not as many as your average politician but a lot of hands. Some hands I liked and some I didn’t – but I shook them anyway. A handshake says a lot about a person, their personality and the way in which they view you and potentially the dynamics of the relationship they intend to form with you.

There a lot of variables to consider when you’re weighing up a handshake but are three major elements that I take note of when I first meet someone.

EI/EQ … all roads leads to the human brain….


With the changing modern world, psycho-social aspects are also changing their definitions & terms. There are a number of characteristics & human personality traits which help in forming up a successful human entity. To a large extent, ‘Emotional Intelligence (EI)’ plays an important role in our life. It is one’s ability to respond intellectually in varied emotional states. This trait signifies the level of emotions one can handle like happiness & sorrow, pleasant & laziness, etc.

Though various theories are still in the evolving stage, scholarly literature in psychology has always supported EI with a lot of findings & researches. To bring forward my own example, this particular characteristic has moved my perspective towards life very dramatically. With the association of EI at the back of my mind, I gradually learnt ‘Theory of Relativity‘, due to which, it became very easy to find out respective connection while learning new things. When it comes to career life, one needs to be empathetic (an integral concern inn EI). Untill & unless a person understand other people in the surrounding, it is difficult to tackle with people in surrounding, be it colleagues, customers, subordinates or seniors.

Human being is a social animal, who prefers to stay with his family since his inception till he embraces the death bed. Hence, his understanding about own self & family members is essential. It is not very surprising that family members who has strong bonding, complementary harmony tends to live happier than others. This is how EI comprises of numerous traits like empathy, sympathy, intelligence, harmony put together. Nothing can stop a person from being successful if his EI is intact !

Waiters Aren’t the Only Ones Who Rely on TIPs !! Innovative FRAUD prevention Technique


I came across this extremely  innovative concept in an advertisement of ETHICSLINE, an Hotline provider in ACFE‘s Anti-Fraud Resource Guide that states

“IPs are the leading method for detecting organizational FRAUD & Abuse.”

Well, right here is an extremely amazing & clandestine idea that was revealed to me & its a pleasure to share this info with you all.

Everybody has heard about various HOTLINE’s available for different products & concepts viz.  Customer care, Order, Inquiries, Public facilitation, etc. But has anyone ever thought about maintaining the information database on numerous Compliance issues for an induvidual, a Company or any form of Business Entity.

Why is it Necessary:

Hotlines provide a confidential and anonymous means through which fraud and other forms of business misconduct may be reported. Since no organization is immune to organizational fraud and abuse, a hotline can enable early detection and minimize the negative impact to your business.

And, hotlines are mandatory for many companies: Section 301 of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) requires publicly traded corporations to establish procedures for the confidential and anonymous submission of concerns regarding accounting or auditing matters. Even private companies, academic institutions, and government entities who are not currently required to comply with SOX have instituted hotlines since they are relatively inexpensive “insurance” when compared to other forms of internal control and provide real, measurable, anti-fraud benefits. Hotlines are also a core part of an “effective” ethics and compliance program as defined by the U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

What is it about?

Global Compliance introduced the original compliance reporting hotline in 1981 and is now the largest and most innovative provider – serving thousands of clients and their 25 million employees in over 200 countries. Global Compliance’s current client base includes 50% of the Fortune 100, 35% of the Fortune 1000, and 25% of the Global 500, along with major academic institutions, government entities, and non-profit organizations.

As the most experienced provider of hotlines worldwide, Global Compliance has built a proprietary database of over 3 million hotline reports – it’s the largest and most robust source of ethics and compliance reports in the world.

In addition to hotline and case management services, Global Compliance also offers expert advisory services, training and awareness programs, and benchmarking that leverages the proprietary database and provides contextual insight into ethics and compliance program performance. These services are also offered and delivered globally to its international client base today.

Hotlines are an effective means of uncovering allegations or concerns specific to:

  • Accounting, Auditing, and Financial Reporting
  • Business Integrity
  • Diversity, Equal Opportunity, and Workplace Respect
  • Environment, Health and Safety
  • Human Relations, Administrative, Compensation
  • Misuse or Misappropriation of Organizational Assets, Information
