So as a Georgist (followersfollower of Henry George), I believe most form of taxation is immoral and economically inefficient except the land value tax (not to be confused with property taxes) and other pigovian taxes. However, I'm also a pragmatic person and therefore, it may not be possible to fund an entire government through these taxes alone as most Georgists believe.

That is why I want to ask how much revenue would an 100% land value tax be able to generate for the Indian government, assuming no changes in the current levels of the government.

I do realise such a tax would be difficult to practically implement due to poor land records in India but nevertheless, I'm interested to know if it is feasible in theory.

How much revenue could an 100% land value tax be able to generate for the Indian government?
