Kar­nali: Ex­press­ing sat­is­fac­tion with Swiss au­thor­i­ties shar­ing the names of two In­dian na­tion­als in con­nec­tion with black money stashed abroad, Fi­nance Min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley said that the move should pro­vide enough in­di­ca­tions of ac­tion against those hold­ing un­ac­counted as­sets out­side In­dia. “I am ex­tremely en­cour­aged by the gov­ern­ment of Switzer­land and the com­pe­tent au­thor­i­ties there in co­op­er­at­ing with the In­dian re­quest,” Jait­ley said here. “I have been re­peat­edly say­ing that the veil of se­crecy with re­gard to as­sets and monies kept by In­dian en­ti­ties out­side In­dia is go­ing to be lifted. This should give a suf­fi­cient in­di­ca­tor to those who hold as­sets out­side In­dia,” he said.
