    How to conquer Corruption ? There is only one sure - and superfast - way to get rid of corruption By introducing : * NEGATIVE MOTIVATION Putting behind bars ( - and right away ; not after 6 years ) , every corrupt fellow and immediately confiscating his ill-gotten wealth * POSITIVE MOTIVATION By abolishing Personal Income Tax and introducing Amnesty Scheme , incentivize # converting of black money into white # acceptance of all payments thru official channels As far as providing " Negative Motivation " is concerned , I had sent following suggestion to our Hon Prime Minister / Finance Minister / other Ministers / Secretaries etc , on 4th Nov 2015 : # INTERNET OF THINGS ( IoT ) As each currency note of Rs 500 / 1000 , is getting printed , embed it with microscopic RFID chips ( with this , current cost of a RFID chip will fall from 50 paise to 5 paise ) Besides communicating with each other , these chips will also transmit their existence location , through internet , to cloud-based servers of Income Tax Department This will form a " NETWORK OF CURRENCY NOTES ( NoC ) " You may like to call this Internet of Currency ( IoC ) , a sub-set of IoT ! # IP ADDRESS SYSTEM ( IP V 6.0 ) Each Rs 500 / 1000 currency note must be igned ( at the time of printing ) , its own unique Internet Address , using IP V 6.0 This IP address should be linked with the unique Serial Number printed on each note. Since IP V 6.0 , will be capable of igning " 2 * 10 to the power of 128 ", no of IP addresses , there is no danger of running out of addresses , even if we decide to extend this idea to Rs 100 currency notes ! Here are the most important BYE - PRODUCTs : * No more possibility of fake / forged / counterfeit , currency notes * No thief would ever want to steal such currency notes which continuously announce their location * No one would want to make any " Cash Deal " . All payments will become official only ! * Plastic currency notes will last 10 times longer ! This reform will enable the Central Government / Income Tax Department , to : * Continuously trace the movement of each of these higher denomination currency notes * Instantly locate any place ( using Google Map based GPS ) , where there is an aculation of more than Rs 1 Crore worth of currency notes Such aculation will be made to appear as a TAG CLOUD on the web site of IT Dept, like thousands of balloons floating on a map of India , capable of being drilled down to within 1 Sq Meter ! Of course , visible only to IT officers ; not to general public ! On each balloon , will appear a number announcing , " Amount of Cash here - Rs " ! This will vastly simplify the task of Anti Corruption Dept / Enforcement Dept etc Of course , RBI will need to allow 6 month's time to the owners of current paper currency notes of Rs 500 / 1000 , to get these exchanged with new plastic notes before withdrawal of the old notes from circulation Implementation of this suggestion , does NOT require ping of any BILL in Lok Sabha or being held to ransom in Rajya Sabha ! And it can be implemented in India , within ONE YEAR But if Chinese President Xi Jinping comes to know about the practicality of this suggestion , he might implement it in 6 months ! How come ? Simple ! Xi Jinping has the political will ! And no historical baggage ! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- hemen parekh 24 Dec 2015 ( Also read blog " Create Wealth to Create Jobs " at : > Blogs )
