“I am a Tax-Payer” #ProudIndian #areyou
When we say that I am a Tax-Payer, it makes all of us to feel proud about the situation and the place where we stay about because of the defaulters list as per the Income Tax department is growing everyday relatively as the total number of accounts (savings, current, etc) are growing. Now the Prime Minister of India has initiated a new policy of opening an account with zero balance in all the banks and even I have did it with my Aadhar Card.
Apart from this there are few embarrassing situations which will hate us to pay the taxes like the improper development of roads, improper facilitation and others. Away from all these, I (on my behalf) have encountered a embarrassing situation in Bangalore. A cycle wala around 35 years was pedaling his cycle in the middle of the road in a highway. The usage of lights dipping went failed as it is India, then I had to next weapon Honking with my 12 rings horn. Suddenly he stopped the cycle in the middle of the road and turned to my side saying “Hurray, I have paid the taxes to the Government, so this is my road and keep following me”.
Now it was my turn now, my Indian mind-voice was saying “You poor fellow, you would have either paid your income or commercial tax, but I pay Income Tax, Sales Tax, Commercial Tax along with the huge RTO for my car and apart from this, I pay the Tollway Charges for driving the car into this dummy road too”. So, turning diplomatic, I sealed my mouth with saliva and took the car in 2nd gear….
…. and finally arrived my destination with 14 minutes of delay.
