We Are Paying Tax On Every Product We Buy Right From Our Groceries To Utility Bills Or Medicals Or Whatever We Choose

“This is the bill which we got from a Hotel in Vashi, Mumbai for a family dinner (it’s the same story in almost every good standard hotel). We ate for Rs. 6770 and paid tax Rs. 2053 which is 30% of the cost and this amount which I paid comes from my monthly salary for which I am already paying 30% tax every year.

This is the same story for each of us in India. We are paying tax on every product we buy right from our groceries to utility bills or medicals or whatever we choose.

In short, if each one of us is earning Rs. 100 as monthly salary then our actual earning or net income is Rs. 35-40 as the rest we are directly or indirectly paying as tax which may be or may not be reaching the Government.

So my question to the current and all previous government is, ‘what are we getting against all this’? If we are paying 60% of our annual salary in India as tax, then I believe we should not be considered as a poor nation and not a single stomach in our country should remain empty. The big business of begging should be put to a stop with immediate effect. We should get better infrastructure, better support system and training mechanism for all sports, free and high quality education and medical support and many more facilities which are offered in other countries where the tax is just 30% or whatever of the salary each member earns.

I believe these questions will be lurking in each of our minds.

Let’s start pushing and sharing this as much as possible and hopefully it will reach the right ears someday and someday, we the youth of India will definitely get a better Government which will take care of its people and the country.

Jai Hind!
