With these few words, I support the Supplementary Demands for Grants completely.

SHRI M.O.H. FAROOK (PONDICHERRY): Madam Chairperson, I thank you for having given me an opportunity to speak. I would like to draw the attention of the hon. Finance Minister to a difficult situation which we are facing in our State of Pondicherry. You know very well that my State is living on your Grants as well as the taxation which we get out of sales tax. You have brought forward this uniform taxation which I fully support. But there are difficulties which we are facing. One third of our Budget is our revenue and one third is our Plan performance. The other is Grants. But by applying this uniform taxation in the Union Territory of Pondicherry, you are just giving a very big blow to the whole economy of the State. Therefore, when you take up the case of uniform taxation which I support in all its aspects, you have to take Pondicherry in a different level. What I would like to plead before you is, please treat Pondicherry on par with the North-Eastern States on special status as far as the taxation is concerned.

I would like to say that there is no raw material in my State. We have to get raw material from outside and there are more than 400 medium scale and small-scale industries which are thriving. If you apply this uniform taxation in Pondicherry, you would be not only throwing more than two lak people into unemployment, but it will also be a severe blow to this Union Territory. I would like to appeal to the hon. Finance Minister of this country to take a pragmatic view of the whole situation in his larger vision and kind heart and find out a solution as far as Pondicherry is concerned.

Therefore, I plead with you that our interests should be protected. While the bigger States can talk on very many subjects, I have to bring to your notice only this subject. My Chief Minister and I gave a representation to you. Please go through the representation and try to solve this problem.

We are under the Ministry of Home Affairs. There are certain pay anomalies about which the Ministry is satisfied and which the Ministry referred to the Expenditure Secretary. There are problems which have been there since the implementation of the Fifth Central Pay Commission's recommendations. Our Thasildar's matter has been pending with you for a long time. It has been approved by the Government of Pondicherry and sent to the Home Ministry, which has examined it thoroughly. I would like that such small problems are sorted out easily.

Please do not apply the same yardstick which you apply to other States. Kindly take a sympathetic attitude towards our State so that I can also thrive under the shadow of the Minister of Finance.
