    Says the guy who accused the British Empire of cutting the hands off textile workers, when one of your largest ever Textile magnates started his empire in the middle of British rule and has no history of hand-amputation in his family. Pure David Icke stuff.

    Be that as it may , we never robbed another nation of its resources to feed our people and then justify it as being to the benefit of the oppressed and the colonised .You see that is the difference between humans and parasites

    What bull. The billions spent of the space program could at least be used in part to roll out education and food to these needy people.

    Because he gained a large virtual monopoly in a country with a large population and started his company a long time ago. AND the British evidently forgot to chop his hands off.:rolleyes:

    Surprisingly enough, the world Bank data says the percentage of both are the same- 15%. So why don't you stop pulling imaginary figures out of your ass ?

    Ever since the attempted impeachment of Warren Hastings by Edmund Burke EIC officials abandoned openly oppressive measures concentrating in other more sophisticated means of defrauding and pauperising the Indians .

    You ought to read more on British colonisation of India especially on Burke's attempted impeachment of Hastings and the charges he framed against Hastings.

    Indian Space Budget is $1.4 billion, not billions. And given that much of goes towards Space application, there is hardly any scope for cost cutting.

    It would have been correct if billions aren't already spent on this. I have posted the public finance document but you are still deliberately ignoring it.

    What we need is more jobs to shift from the overmanned agricultural sector to more productive sectors & we will have it soon.

    You're still exporting copious amounts of food whilst this is happening to make a few agriculture magnates richer. Isn't that exactly what you accused the British of, and this is the 21st century and these are your people.

    One of India’s newest billionaires–who popped up on Forbes magazine’s ranking of the world’s richest this week–minted much of his money selling tractors.

    As most of India struggled over the last year, Lachhman Das Mittal of Sonalika Group joined the very elite club of people worth 10 figures as his net value bloated to more than $1 billion.

    The Sonalika Group makes its money selling tractors to farmers. It has been able to sell more and more of them over the last year as a good monsoon has given agricultural entrepreneurs more rupees to invest.


    Mr. Mittal’s net worth jumped to $1.1 billion this year from $875 million last year, Forbes said.

    Rich Landowners Reap Billions From India Tax Loophole
    Millionaire farmers are benefiting from measures intended to help poor farmers.

    Stuffed animal heads adorn the walls of Kunwar Vikram Jeet Singh’s mansion on the outskirts of Delhi, and he also owns a three-bedroom apartment in a gated condominium in the city. His children go to one of India’s most exclusive private schools. Yet Singh doesn’t pay income tax because he’s a farmer.

    Singh is one of thousands of rich landowners who don’t need to pay taxes thanks to laws designed to help the hundreds of millions of poor farmers who scratch a living from India’s soil. The average Indian farmer has less than 2 acres (0.8 hectares) and most struggle to eat two meals a day. Singh’s family farm has 100 acres.

    Farmers Tax Exempt—So Is Company With Rs 215-Cr Profit
    It’s reasonably well known that income from agriculture attracts no tax in India.

    Wow look, your plunderer has a turban now. That's progress.
    [​IMG]

    What isn’t quite as well known is that of more than 400,000 taxpayers claiming exemption for agricultural income in the assessment year 2014-15, the biggest were seed giant Kaveri Seeds—it claimed Rs 186.63 crore exemption and made a profit of Rs 215.36 crore before tax—and multinational Monsanto India, which claimed Rs 94.40 crore as exemption from agricultural income and earned Rs 138.74 crore profit before tax.



    Agro-companies growing crops are allowed the same tax relief as individuals in states levying no agricultural income tax, although some states do indeed tax some kinds of farming.







    “Allowing big farmers—individuals or companies farming more than say 30 acres—agricultural income-tax exemption makes no sense,” said R Durairaj, CEO and founder, Mother India Farms, an organic farm. Durairaj farms 200 acres of family land and supports agricultural-income-tax reform—although he does not pay any tax on his agricultural income.



    On 39 million Indians, falls the country’s tax burden

    The last I read the amount alloted to ISRO was around 1 biliion USD , O'Hara.

    The issue isn't foodgrains but it's distribution .It's a problem which occupies our thoughts and something we are doing something about albeit not as fast as we'd like to address the problem .

    But as I said , we didn't use that as a pretext to colonise foreign lands .

    There were other construction companies too .For the rest of your drivel , please refer to my previous post .

    Most of India's agricultural produce comes from small landholdings

    No it isn't. It was letting millions starve to death. Which doesn't happen any more.

    Where? Matter of priorities mate. If the British government left even 1 million people starving whilst running a space program, they would be out on their heads.

    The GHI combines 4 component indicators: 1) the proportion of the undernourished as a percentage of the population; 2) the proportion of children under the age of five suffering from wasting; 3) the proportion of children under the age of five suffering from stunting; 4) the mortality rate of childrenunder the age of five
