Citizens and taxes – a deeper purview:
Taxes are part of social life and backbone of every country’s growth. Liberalisation led to tax reforms and top-brass official and top Leaders willingness to simplify taxes for healthy revenue and eased life. It has been now almost two decades India ushered in growth arena and results of efforts are all set to come. Last few years have marked devastating results of hard efforts carried for two decades and this aspect has raised panic in growth. The American growth pattern being followed does not see background discipline and need of simplicity desired is moving away.
Government processes automated in last decades have rather inflated and made life complex and paper-loaded wherein they should have turned simpler and cost reducing. Government agencies like Railways is openly charging premium for availing automation in service wherein it should have reduced or rather equalised human-involved operation like cost. Reducing and simplifying multiple taxes and its backend processes are rather going opposites. Governments levying newer taxes are failing to simplify life and are smarter way projecting trade community to be evader and leaders to be social servants even knowing fact that reveals so many frauds moving out large sum from government hands.
Local Body Tax (LBT) is one such new pain being injected in society by government machinery. State Governments rather optimising its internal district level funding is purposefully throwing its duty on citizens in name of local governance need of funds. Jalgaon has been first victim of this tax levy replacing Octroi tax and has drastically suffered revenue losses in trade following risen cost and added paper work. State government in spite of having earned more than targeted revenue from VAT rise from 4% to 5% two years ago has failed to keep its promises of removal of Octroi and non-levy of newer taxes. Taxing is paining traders and deducing their competency with other States.
