Why shouldn’t rich farmers pay?—सविस्तर माहितीसाठी इकॉनॉमिक टाइम्स मधील बातमी वाचावी.

Finance minister Arun Jaitley was correct when he stated in April that constitutional constraints do not empower his government to tax agricultural income, implying that he is not constrained from amending the Income-Tax Act. B R Ambedkar, in framing the Constitution, was vehemently critical of British land revenue system, the foundation for which was laid during the Mughal period, and strengthened by the East India Company, which was then incorporated under the Government of India Act, 1935, by which land revenue was assigned to states.
The 1935 Act was incorporated in our Constitution in 1950, using which state governments have developed their land revenue system. Ambedkar, participating in the Bombay Legislative Council debate, felt that the system was inequitable and indefensible.
