Income Tax Dept & Privacy

The new ad by the Income Tax Dept. claims to know every spending activity of ours. The spot ad on FM channels claims 'ನೀವಾನಾದರೂ ಬಚ್ಚಿಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದೀರಾ, ನಮಗೆಲ್ಲಾ ತಿಳಿದಿದೆ...." Is this not an assault on our privacy. The Govt. has the right to levy taxes on us and also collect it from us. But is this not tantamount spying on us? We get upset about the Govt. reading all emails, our tweets, facebook posts..... How come we are never worried about this blatant spying? Our Hon. Finance Minister claims to created a mega software which can analyse our incomes, spending patterns, how much tax we have paid, etc etc...... We are quiet abt this, nonchalant. But when we are told that Google 'scans' our mails to display targetted ads, we are inflamed, protest passionately!!! Wakeup Indians, #‎uttishTabharata
