Indian Express App More Related NewsWashington:Donald Trump celebrated a "historic" victory on Wednesday as the US Congress passed a massive Republican tax cut plan handing the president his first major legislative achievement since taking office nearly a year ago The House of Representatives voted along party lines to greenlight a $15 trillion overhaul that will impact every corner of the US economy through dramatic tax cuts for corporations and temporary reductions for individuals Opposition Democrats have branded the tax plan a giveaway to the wealthiest that risks blowing a hole in the national debt but the revamp fulfills a core Trump campaign pledge to redirect money from government coffers into the pockets of working Americans "We broke every record" a jubilant Trump told scores of elated Republicans gathered at the White House for a victory lap thanking them for driving through "the largest tax cut in the history of our country" "We are making America great again" he declared in a melee of smiles and handshakes with lawmakers— who took turns to sing the president’s praises "Something this big something this generational something this profound could not have been done without exquisite presidential leadership" gushed House Speaker Paul Ryan as fellow lawmakers applauded File image of Capitol Hill Reuters The most sweeping rewrite of the US tax code in decades the bill represents Trump’s most important legislative victory in the 11 months since his inauguration until now marked by the stinging failure to repeal his predecessor’s health care law Billing it as a "Christmas gift" and a "history victory" for the American people Trump and his Republicans hope their success in passing tax cuts plays to the party’s advantage in next year’s mid-term elections The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act also takes a major step toward crippling Obamacare by scrapping the individual mandate that requires nearly all Americans to have health insurance or pay a fine "With this bill. we have essentially repealed Obamacare and we will come up with something that’s much better" Trump declared Trump earlier gathered his Cabinet members for a meeting where he discussed the tax accomplishment and that gave way to an extraordinary scene as the president invited those present to join in prayer Housing Secretary Ben Carson a fervent member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church proceeded to say grace thanking God for giving America Trump and his tax cut plan "We’re thankful for the unity in Congress that has presented an opportunity for our economy to expand so that we can fight corrosive debt that has been destroying our future" Carson intoned Changing minds Having taken months to get across the finish line the bill was delayed at the last moment Tuesday after a technical glitch required the Senate to strip three minor provisions from the bill before approving it overnight Since the House had already voted— and the versions approved by both chambers must be identical— it was forced to vote again on the changes The bill passed the House 224 to 201 with 12 Republicans siding with all Democrats in voting no The measure tests conservatives’ fidelity to the principle of fiscal discipline as it is projected to add nearly $15 trillion to the national debt over the coming decade according to the Joint Committee on Taxation That figure drops to about $1 trillion when economic growth is accounted for Trump had leaned heavily on Republicans to push the contentious package through Congress The party had been deeply fractured after the Obamacare repeal failure and the prospects of success on tax reform in 2017 appeared remote The reform remains unpopular: a CNN poll shows that 55 percent of Americans oppose the tax plan widely criticised as favouring wealthy people over the middle class while just 33 percent support it But Republicans have pushed back at that notion with Ryan predicting that Americans would be won over once they start to reap the benefits in 2018 "I think people are going to change their view on this" he said The tax bill slashes the federal corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent and the maximum individual income tax rate for the nation’s wealthiest would drop from 396 percent to 37 percent It also doubles the standard deduction for families and doubles the child tax credit while eliminating or limiting several deductions currently claimed by millions of middle-class families Economic ‘rocket fuel’ Ryan stated that a median-income family of four earning $73000 annually would save $2059 in taxes next year But he could not say whether the tax cuts would generate enough economic growth to pay for themselves Trump however was bullish "By cutting taxes and reforming the broken system we are now pouring rocket fuel into the engine of our economy" he said Democrats meanwhile trashed the plan’s implications for ordinary citizens "It is a victory for billionaires like Donald Trump. but this is a disaster for the American people" independent Senator Bernie Sanders told CNN Under the law the corporate tax cuts are permanent while those for individuals phase out beginning in 2026 By 2027 the Tax Policy Center warns 53 percent of households will see their taxes rise Mumbai: Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar on Fridayadvised the Indian players to be wary of South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir

18 December.Eighty-nine seats of Saurashtra and south Gujarat region are going to polls in the first phase while the remaining 93 seats in the central and northern region would vote in the second phase With inputs from agencies The Rs 2000 bills which were introduced after the note ban shocker in November 2017 have always been a nightmare to the common man as it was difficult to transact using those pieces (smaller denomination notes were not available easily around to break it) After one year of demonetisation why we don’t see too many of these pink notes around An SBI research report may have an answer to this conundrum According to the report authored by SBI group chief economic advisor Soumya Kanti Ghosh the Reserve Bank may have stopped printing the Rs 2000 notes altogether or may be printing far less numbers focusing on smaller currencies First let’s look at how did the SBI report arrive at this conclusion It first cites the information given by the Ministry of Finance in the Lok Sabha that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has printed 16957 million pieces of Rs 500 notes and 3654 million pieces of Rs 2000 notes as on 8 December Total value of such notes translates into Rs 15787 billion Now it takes another set of data (from RBI) which is the currency in circulation on the same date (8 December) and subtract the value of small value notes up to March 2017 provided in the RBI annual report from it (Rs 16825 billion-Rs 3501 billion) Thus it arrives at the value of high denomination notes in circulation at Rs 13324 billion as on 8 December A file photo of Rs 2000 notes Reuters Now taking the difference of the value of total printed high denomination currency as on 8 December (Rs 15787) and the total value of high denomination notes in circulation the SBI reports arrives at a figure of Rs 2463 billion ‘which may have been printed by the RBI but not supplied in the market’ According to the report even this Rs 2463 billion may be on the lower side “As a logical corollary as 2000 denomination currency led to challenges in transactions it thus indeed seems that RBI may have either consciously stopped printing the 2000 denomination notes/or printing in smaller numbers after initially it was printed in ample amount to normalise the liquidity situation This also means that the share of small currency notes in total currency in circulation now may have touched 35 percent in value terms” the report says One catch here is that high-vale notes also include Rs 500 not just Rs 2000 bills Even then it offers an indicative picture since in value terms the latter is more significant Now one must remember that after the Rs 2000 notes came into circulation there were reports that RBI has stopped printing or is considering pulling out these notes A 26 July reportinMint said the RBI has stopped printing Rs 2000 notes early this year From the very early stage of demonetisation it appeared that the idea was to eventually phase out the Rs 2000 notes These bills were easy tools for both the government and the RBI to infuse a large amount of cash into the system within minimum time This was necessary since after the demonetisation exercise severe cash-draught gripped all quarters of economy paralysing the ruraland informal economy in particular It wasn’t feasible for the government mints to do this job with smaller denomination notes Hence Rs 2000 bills took anavatar as an easy solution Its role is more or less done now with smaller denomination notes entering the financial system Will the death of the Rs 2000 notes if it happens not cause much grief to the common man Unlikely In the months that followed the note ban the Rs 2000 pink notes never really helped the common citizen for daily transactions as there wasn’t enough change available (even after seven months of demonetisation there were still reports of cash shortages in ATMs) About 90 percent of his daily transactions — purchase at retail shops paying cabbies or small vendors — can be carried out with lower denomination notes of Rs 50 Rs 100 and Rs 200 and available coin denominations For majority of Indians there is hardly any use of Rs 2000 notes in daily life Most activities get done with lower denomination currencies The government need not put a stop to Rs 2000 notes in a hurry though It can be done over a period without sending shock waves to people like in the case of the demonetisation episode As this writer argued in an earlier columnto kill illegal cash deals the RBI needs to make Rs 100 and Rs 200 notes (which was introduced recently) the top denominations and scrap Rs 500 and Rs 2000 bills This will also help society to migrate to cashless payments when it comes to high-value transactions Globally most major economies have had to bring down the high denomination cash component in the system at some point to become more transparent and move to cashless transactions Developed countries like the US Australia and the UK have their most popular highest currency denominations at 100 or less Most daily transactions happen there with cards In India too there is no logic why Rs 500 Rs 2000 notes should continue New Delhi: The
