Use #askthefm to pose your question and let us know about your experience

BANGALORE, INDIA: Post-Budget, are there some questions lingering in your minds? Here's your chance to pose them directly at finance minister P Chidambaram and get answers.

Chidamabram will answer public questions- from industry-specific tax reforms to overall economic progress of the country- on Google Hangout at 8 pm on February 4 (Monday).

"This is a powerful communications platform and is accessible across the world for internet users," the finance ministry said in a release.

Users can submit their questions by uploading a video, by commenting on the YouTube channel or through the Google India Page and tagging text or a video with the hashtag #askthefm.

Chidambaram will be joined by a select group of panelists such as Jahangir Aziz, India chief economist, JP Morgan; Anand Mahindra, CMD, Mahindra & Mahindra and Amit Singhal, senior vice-president, Google Inc.

"During the conversation, selected participants will ask the Minister questions - but we'd also like to hear from you before the Hangout," said a Google representative in the blog post.

"One of the mainstays of India's political calendar is the annual Union Budget that is presented every February. This year - in a first for the Government of India - the Finance Minister will take to Google+ to respond to citizens' questions about the Budget, and discuss the state of the Indian economy with a panel of industry leaders as well as citizens," announced a Google blog post last week.

It will be the first time any cabinet minister is using the internet to interact with citizens and to answer queries on the Union budget, a finance ministry release said Sunday.

Alternatively, you may also head to the InConversation YouTube channel. Not to add that it could be accessed on the go as well. Be it your mobile or any other handheld devices, you can watch the budget video live.

 Google+ Hangouts are multi-party video chats that allow up to 10 people to participate at the same time. The Hangout can be later shared on YouTube or streamed live using Hangouts on air.

Dear FM, why is agricultural income not taxed?? leave aside it is because of poor ppl.

add

Rajesh Mon Mar 4 at 12:13 PM

1) Why is agriculture Income (AI)Exempt from Income Tax ? The apparent reason convinced by policymakers is : Indian Farmers are poor.But who is saying to tax them for poor income. Tax them if their's Income is more than 200000/- as you are taxing everybody. I found that most of ministers/politicians show their occupation as farmers. is n't it a reason to exempt (AI). 2)On Imports, there is customs, Excise duties and E.cess thereon levied. Basic Excise duty is modvatable but cess is not. Why ? 3)Is the cess not nuisance as evryone has to show it separately and collect it in decimals ? so much extra paperwork on crores of tax payers. can't it be consolidated and segregated by the government at one go?

Mr.Chidambaram, you have allocated Rs 1000 corer for Nirbhay fund of women security. but does it not show that women in india are vulnerable? will it not impact of foreign women tourist. then how much money will it be allocated to per state & will it be sufficient for women security. (ii)why did tax slab extend to 3( three )Lakh we think that Tax is being collected more from us than rich business. why is not input more money in agriculture where we can get more employment than industry.

when D.A. is revised twice in a year to neutralize inflation,why the tax rate and slab could not be revised annually to neutralize the impact of higher tax on revised D.A.for the salaried middle class.This was your wrong logic during budget speech that since the income tax rate and slab was revised last year only,the same can not be revised this year.

why is interest on fixed deposits taxed inspite of the fact that the purchasing power of the deposit plus interest is less than the year before. It needs a babu,s brain to call this as income. Fm not being a babu may please look into this issue

Finance minister I am near 65 with my wife 63 with two sons, since 1970 to 2000 income tax was deducted from my salary, continuous opting change in private sector my EPF and PF is broken as per rule. Recession and sickness of big houses forced to take VRS in year 2000. My permanent address is Delhi but we both are shuttling with our male married sons to survive. MY REQUEST IS THAT ALL SENIOR CITIZEN SHOULD GET, Sr Citizen pension Rs 1500 to 3000 PM who have paid minimum 10 years regular Income tax to Government. In existing policy we have to show the income if it is less than Rs 5000/- PM etc which heart individual living in society. I contributed my part of salary in building the nation hence I should have right to enjoy the Govt scheme in difficulties without declaring my present income. We both need 15000/PM to survive normal life and in present condition we have to stay with our sons just to manage life and killing self-esteem. I suggest declaring 3000/PM to all senior citizen (65) paid 10 years minimum Income Tax to Govt. This will not only vote for Cong but all old people needed money to meet medical, clothing, veg food with milk and house rent etc. to keep healthy environment. Ijl_kumar@rediffmail.com 09867440124
