New Delhi, Oct 30: The second report of the Task Force on the steps to be taken by India, which was published in January 2011 and submitted to the BJP, had even spoken about cancellation of the citizenship of those who had stashed funds abroad besides barring them from holding public offices or taking loans from banks. The report had suggested the above among various measures (constitutional, legal, political and geopolitical) that the Indian government could have taken to bring back the black money from abroad.

"As a nation, we owe it to the deprived and ordinary people of India and its future citizens to perform the sacred duty of unearthing these vast national resources hidden abroad which has the potential to transform the country into a developed nation much sooner than we can otherwise do," the report said. It had made drastic recommendations to deal with the issue.

The task force included Ajit Doval, the current National Security Advisor

The four-member task force featured convenor Gurumurthy, a Chennai-based chartered accountant and co-convenor of the Swadeshi Jagran Manch, IIM-A professor R Vaidyanathan, Mumbai-based advocate Mahesh Jethmalani and Ajit Doval, former director of the Intelligence Bureau and currently the National Security Advisor to the Narendra Modi government.

On Wednesday, the Centre submitted to the Supreme Court names of 627 Indians who hold Swiss bank accounts.

Earlier in April 2009, the first interim report of the task force appointed by the BJP was released.
