Only six people earning over 500 million rupees ($7.4 million) filed returns in 2012-2013, despite having an estimated 2,100 ultra-wealthy Indians whose net worth exceeds $50 million. Billions of dollars in unpaid taxes deprive the government of monies that could be spent on changing lives in a country where 270 million people survive on less than $2 a day, according to the World Bank.
