We looked it up on Google and this is what we got.
The GST is a Value added Tax (VAT) is proposed to be a comprehensive indirect tax levy on manufacture, sale and consumption of blah, blah, blah (yawn), blah, blah, blah.
We stopped. Why read about something that’s just not going to change? It’s come here to stay. So be it. Forever hold your peace or whatever is left of it.
So, this has been going on and it started off yesterday. Everyone who paid bills felt the pinch. Some say it’s good and some, well, curse words come out from them.
The government then, the government now, what they should have done, what they didn’t do. Ever wonder who made use of this powerful quote – ‘Do What Makes You Happy’? The Indian Government!
No matter what they do, it has to be followed and the people, the citizens, the victims of ‘Do What Makes You Happy’ are sandwiched in between this crazy crib of what’s right and what’s wrong.
So, what should be done during this time of tax invasion?
Go old school on expenses
Plan your expenses. It’s going to get higher. GST is going to fall hard and heavy on all of us. No limit has been ensured or guaranteed that 18% is going to stay where it is.
Misers will get richer and still think they’re poor and the spenders will spend more and still not be worried. This will go on until times infinity. GST or no GST.
Entertainment is going to get affected, seeing how the state tax is still going to be retained along with GST for watching movies in theatres with popcorn, coke and empty wallets going cashless, literally now. Credit and Debit cards will touch zero size figures faster than we can reach the Gym.
People will still spend. No complaints, their money, their life.
So, are vegetable vendors on the streets going to get smarter than they already are? Since, they don’t pay taxes as much as we do, are they going to charge us for walking up to them and asking them how much they can spare us for some change?
