India is losing over 10.3 billion dollars which is about 75,000 crores in taxes every year. This loss is due to global tax abuse by multinational companies and tax evasion by private individuals.

According to the State of Tax Justice report, globally countries are losing a total of over 427 billion dollars in taxes each year to international corporate tax abuse and private tax evasion. This is costing countries almost the equivalent of the annual salaries of nearly 34 million nurses every year. Or we can say one nurse’s annual salary every second.

If we look at the data from India, the report says that there is a loss of 10.3 billion dollars, or 0.41 percent of the 3 trillion dollars GDP in taxes every year because of global tax abuse.

Out of this, over 10 billion dollars is lost to tax abuse by multinational corporations and 200 million dollars due to tax evasion committed by private individuals.
