Want Drivers – come to Jalgaon:
Lowered employment opportunities lead to various ways for to be entrepreneurs and Jalgaon’s auto rickshaw operation is one of its classic examples. Jalgaon had lesser opportunities for middle tire and/or lower educated youth during 1990s. This aspect attracted many of youths towards this line as it had no investment to begin and ready cash to generate. Many businessmen and traders bought Rickshaw of their own and started renting them to these groups. Today one could see Jalgaon district with more than 17,000 Auto Rickshaws, largest of its count in reference to population and small works.
Improved buying power, enhancing public transport systems and having options to choose in commuting has now taken this Auto Rickshaw line in downfall trend. Occupancy decrease and risen living cost has tendered them in questions and one could even see rising count of rickshaw drivers using kerosene mixed with fuel to decrease cost to increase their earnings. There is a stronger need to evaluate this perspective of living by these people by thinking above individual levels. Enhanced earning opportunities, secured jobs/ service, timely reaching back and being able to live happy family life factors would enhance with this change in thinking. Forming co-operative groups to have bigger public transporting means, school students commuting, moving towards private/ government driving jobs may be looked as newer opportunities to usher. Jalgaon’s this segment of entrepreneur is ready to serve with zealous efforts and confident smile and we appeal major public transport organisations/ private resource hiring agencies to look at Jalgaon as one of most rich location having significant count of such resources.

Government taxation policies poses traders in fix:
Taxation is most talked and hyped aspect in today’s Indian democracy. Liberalisation doors opened up new avenues of growth and prosperity in country. However, governmental agencies and overall approach still could not read technology as one of its best friend in reducing overhead and cost. Its overall technology implementation until now has eased only its bureaucratic system load of work rather easing taxpayer woes.
A classical evaluation of this reference can be further observed with announcement from Sales Tax department in recent years. The post VAT tax implementation arena has now mandate traders to have multiple formats of sales invoices to help department officials identify the registered dealer versus unregistered dealer for evaluation of VAT input credit. However, this single liner looking objective has raised many questions of concern to traders to maintain their books of accounts and has equally poised rising cost of maintaining systems in desired way. More of same and more panic triggering reference has been noted with other departments. Whenever there is sudden pressure of meeting targets of revenue collection, the top tax payers are taken in net and served with numerous notices to comply with.
Today’s taxation system needs strengthening of reference and as it is towards complying first objective of taking more payers in net, it has to look beyond this by finding those not yet in the net rather stressing these payers. Systems needs simplifications so as every individual taxpayer can execute such aspects with lowest support. When world is moving towards paperless office approach, our governmental departments still largely believes papers as their sole tools of actions. Government authorities need to setup Documents exchange of India as centralised system availing facilities to every taxpayer on unique identification to preserve and share his/ her identity documents as required. This would considerably reduce paper load in government offices and equally boost efficiency of works to be executed.
