VAT and We
When VAT was introduced everyone fumed about the implementation of this tax . But how many of us want a cash memo while shopping for our everyday goodies . At most we are given a bill without any stamp or registration No. and we are satisfied with that .
We get panicked when big restaurants want some extra bucks in the name of bucks , but those whom we pay on daily basis are saved from this odd . Because we don’t want to spoil the relationship with the nearest shopkeeper by asking the cash memo . This way we are not only in risk of getting cheated but also doing harm to the genuine tax payers as well as government .
So it is our duty to ask for cash memo in every purchase where we couph up 100 Rs or more then that . There is nothing harm in asking the cash memo or asking to reduce the price from the MRP of certain things . Don’t bother about the raised eyebrows of the sales men . It is our middle class mentality of not asking for our rights is what takes us to nowhere and create problems to those who are conscious about their rights .
