Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday has asked all the BJP MLAs and MPs to furnish their bank details including the account transactions between November 8 and December 31. According to the sources, the details should be submitted to BJP president Amit Shah by January 1st 2017. 

Addressing the BJP parliamentary party meet on Tuesday, Modi said, the IT Amendment Bill is not to turn blackmoney into white  but to use money looted from poor for welfare. "The amendment is not for turning black money into white but to spend the money looted from the poor on their welfare," he said.

PM's direction at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting came following allegations by opposition parties that the BJP had tipped off some of its own leaders ahead of the demonetisation announcement.

The PM also sought everybody's support in his effort to usher in digital/mobile economy and push the society towards cashless transactions.

Addressing the lawmakers, BJP chief Shah also asked the BJP MPs to motivate those traders who fall in their constituencies to shidft to cashless transactions.

PM's instructions have come in the wake of the newly proposed tax rules for those who surrender black or untaxed money by the end of the year.

Quoting Modi, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters that the bill is part of his government's fight against blackmoney . A part of the tax collected on the money deposited under this scheme will be spent on electricity, roads, toilets and education among other welfare measures, he said.
