Re: The Ram Janmbhoomi Verdict: News and Discussion

Not necessarily. I think the 5 acre land was accorded due to the demolition of the mosque which the Supreme court called illegal. Article 142 states "make such order as is necessary for doing complete justice in any cause or matter pending before it" Why should the courts not be held acco...

Reducing corporate tax might encourage investment. Reducing income tax might improve consumption and savings. IMHO both are needed if there is surplus revenue. But we are not the US and we need to keep an eye on inflation while doing it.
