per cent A further reaffirmation of the British firms faith in the Indian market came from the fact that it was ready to shell out a 26 per cent premium over the closing share price on December 15 to

Bangladesh for 260 and then suffered a spectacular top-order collapse of their own to leave them reeling at 18 for three after the spin-dominated opening day of the first Test on Sunday On a day of fluctuating fortunes Bangladesh slumped to 10-3 before Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal raised 155 runs to help them post a competitive total at the Shere Bangla National Stadium Australia witnessed a similar collapse in their reply and slumped to 14-3 as Bangladesh roared back into the contest in the eventful final session when eight wickets fell Matt Renshaw was batting on six at stumps with skipper Steve Smith on three Australia now face a daunting task on a spin-friendly track where slow bowlers have claimed nine of the 13 wickets that fell on the opening day After opting to bat Bangladesh were left gasping for breath after Pat Cummins reduced them to 10-3 inside four overs with a terrific display of fast bowling The paceman gave an indication of things to come with his third delivery which flew off the shoulder of Soumya Sarkar’s blade and soared over the agitated slip fielders Two balls later the batsman was caught in the gully by Peter Handscomb Cummins returned to have Imrul Kayes and Sabbir Rahman off successive deliveries the leaden-footed batsmen perishing caught behind without scoring With two left-handers at the crease Smith pressed off-spinner Nathan Lyon into

reaching half-centuries in the process Glenn Maxwell’s part-time off-spin finally earned Australia the breakthrough with Tamim lobbing one to David Warner at backward point to fall for a 71 which included three sixes off Lyon’s bowling Lyon then claimed the important wicket of Shakib with an extra bit of bounce from the track when the batsman edged him to Smith in the slips Shakib’s 84

by Jaithirth Rao | Published: March 24 2012 12:24 am Related News Indias arbitrary policy environment has shifted IT and BPO jobs out of hereto more reasonable regimes To The Honourable Finance Minister of India Dear sir I wish to introduce myself as the finance minister of the Philippines I am truly grateful for all the actions that your excellent ministry has been undertaking these past few yearswhich have helped the BPO industry in the Philippines a great deal You may be aware that the Philippines BPO industry has been growing much faster than its Indian counterpart and is now all set to overtake the Indian industrywhich till a decade ago was viewed by all of us with wondermentawe and envy We never dreamed that our country could be in the same league as India But then we were earlier not well-informed about your income tax departmentthe frequent and arbitrary changes in rules that emanate from this department and the vicious harassment of Indian IT and BPO industries which over the last several years has become a concerted strategy of this great department We in the Philippines count the Indian income tax authorities among our best friends We request you to give us the names of the individuals in this worthy department who have been behind this wonderful strategy of weakening this labour-intensive Indian industry and indirectly helping the growth of our own We would like to confer special Magsaysay Awards to these individualsrefer to them as Friends of the Philippines and invite them to have a holiday in our country The BPO companies in the Philippines have generously promised to foot the entire bill of their benefactors The Indian income tax authorities are particularly targeting captive BPO companies by asking them to re-compute their taxable profits based on arbitrary and changing transfer pricing guidelines without adequate safe harbour provisionswhich are commonplace in most countries We have decided to do exactly the opposite We are reasonable in our tax demandssimple and transparent in our transfer pricing rules and generous in our tax holidays This has resulted in many captives stopping the growth of their Indian BPO outfits and accelerating the growth of their units in the Philippines All the employees of these units in my country wish to express their gratitude to youyour government and your ministry Without the capricious behaviour of the Indian governmentmost of them would not have jobs I am now told that your officials are raising tax demands on captive units of global companies using their global profits as the basis What a wonderful idea I have no doubt that this one decision alone would cause several of these companies not only to stop growing their Indian subsidiariesbut actually start winding them down Nothing could be better news for the Philippines I have instructed my officials to come up with other distinctly business-unfriendly regulatory ideas We will share them with your officials when they visit us As and when such ideas are implementeddoubtless the Indian BPO industry is bound to shrink and glory days are sure to be ahead for our country We are told that in many cases these rapacious tax demands will in due course be struck down by your independent tribunals and courts In the meantimethe companies will have to pay upbe out of cash and will be spending their time and money on expensive tax lawyers instead of focusing on their operating businesses Of coursein some yearsthe whole problem will go away as all of them will close shop in India and move to the Philippines We will then be more generous with Magsaysay and Friend of the Philippines awards In forums like the WTOyour country and mine have been arguing in favour of free movement of labour where it is associated with trade in services For instancewhen an IT project has to be implemented in the USoverseas service-providers are required to send staff on-site to help supervise and implement the project Some political groups in the US have been arguing that these activities constitute body-shopping and have been making the case for using visa restrictions as a non-tariff barrier against trade in services It is gratifying to note that our two countries have been on the same side in this argument HoweverI am informed that your income tax department has now taken the position that such revenues do not constitute service exports and that in fact they are really body-shopping They are in effect supporting those in the US who wish to impose trade barriers on Indian firms At firstI was a little puzzled as to why one wing of your esteemed government would so fatally undermine the sovereign position of your government But the more I dug into itthe more obvious it became to me that the Indian government is full of Friends of the Philippines and Friends of China Your tax authorities are actually going back several years in time and raising demands on service export revenues (sorry they are right body shopping revenues)forcing your largesuccessfulworld class companies to pay upmake provisionsissue guarantees and generally get weakened financially It is particularly heartening to note that there are persons in India who are determined to wreck one of the few industries where India has achieved world class and where Indian companies are considered formidable operators I brought to the attention of the finance minister of China the fact that Indian IT companies who till the other day were poster boys of India are now being harassed despite earlier explicit and emphatic assurances that on-site project implementation revenues would be treated as export income The finance minister of China was salivating He is now looking forward to global corporations and for that matterIndian IT companies are moving more and more of their activities to China He plans to write to you in order to congratulate you on the wonderful steps that your government is taking that will be of immense benefit to China Sincerely yours Finance Minister of the Philippines The writer is a Mumbai-based entrepreneur For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News
