Google tax: India downplays reprisal fears
NEW DELHI: US Trade Representative's retaliatory action against France to counter the impact of equalisation levy on American technology companies hasn't set alarm bells ringing in India, which is also under the scanner for taxing Google, Facebook, Amazon and Netflix.The issue was discussed last week during an interaction with USTR Robert Lightheizer as American authorities had flagged their concerns soon after the levy in its expanded form kicked in earlier this year, sources told TOI. In fact, the US had sought to link the equalisation levy to the limited trade deal, which has been in the works for a year now.Last month, USTR had announced an investigation against several countries including India, the European Union, the UK, Brazil and Indonesia after e-commerce came under the ambit of the tax. Official sources said. New Delhi is hopeful of sorting out the issue with both the commerce and finance ministry engaged in the deliberations.The USTR has announced imposition of 25% duty on specified French products, including cheese and wine for imposing a 3% digital services tax.
Virus finally does what cash ban could not
By Vrishti Beniwal and Suvashree GhoshThe coronavirus outbreak may finally accomplish what India’s shock demonetization four years ago failed to achieve: Use of digital payments is soaring for everything from groceries, electricity bills and cab fares.The value of transactions on the Unified Payments Interface, a platform created by India’s largest banks in 2016, reached an all-time high last month as people feared to handle banknotes amid the pandemic. Electronic fund transfers from banks, which had dropped in April as economic activity slowed almost to a halt, have also rebounded.“People who have never paid a bill online are paying online, people who have never bought groceries online are buying online,” said Nityanand Sharma, chief executive officer of Get Simpl Technologies Pvt Ltd., which allows people to order groceries and food online and pay every two weeks. “What would have taken five years has happened in the last three months.”Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has long sought to push digital payments for India, where three in four consumer transactions are handled in cash.
