“So this (declarations) could be revised upward once the full tabulation takes place,” Jaitley said, adding that the money collected would go into the Consolidated Fund of India and will be used for social security purposes.

“Roughly, the declarations work out to Rs 1 crore per declarant. Some will be higher, some will be lower,” he said, but ruled out any revelation of the names of the people who have availed of the scheme.
