Guys, I don't know if anyone has come across this, but I feel after reading this people would scramble to buy cars to avoid the flood of taxes which will be levied on the aam Janta. Below is a news item published in TOI Hyderabad Edition

Re: Green Tax

I am not sure what would this Green Tax be used for? Are they going to plant more trees or keep places for natural vegetation, or whether this tax will be used to fill govt coffers to be spent on fake development activities.

If the funds are used judiciously then it is a great initiative, otherwise just a tool to get more money from aam admi!

Re: Green Tax Tax To Be Levied on Petrol Vehicles

This again shows how incredibly stupid the authorities are.

Haven't they learned anything from Europe and the US? Moving cars and petrol must no be too expensive as it otherwise sloes down the economy.

And if these people want to show how green they are then they could lead by setting an example: Get your lazy bums out of your car and use public transport yourselfes before you go and push it on the general public you idiots!

Exorbitant taxes proposed on Private vehicles

Exorbitant taxes proposed in the name of Public Transport[frustration]

A Planning Commission working group has suggested a green surcharge of Rs. 2 per litre of petrol and green cess of 3% on the annual insured value of all private vehicles and a steep urban transportation tax to be collected at the time of purchase of private vehicles. The panel was headed by Delhi Metro Chief E Sreedharan has also suggested an urban transportation tax at 7.5% for all new petrol vehicles and 20% for new diesel vehicles.

The principle behind the exorbitant taxes being that the it would discourage use of private vehicles. The idea then is to shift everyone to public transport. This move is backed by the colossal investment needed in the urban transport sector which the Centre will not be able to meet from traditional budgetary sources. A host of other taxes such as land monetization, land value tax, hike in property taxes, congestion tax, a cess on sales tax and hike in parking charges are aimed at being made the channels of mobilising funds for the urban transportation.

It is estimated that the new surcharge and taxes will help the government generate Rs 2,35,741 crore in the 12th five year plan (2012-17) and Rs 22,40,804 crore over 20 years.

While all of the ideas mentioned above are going to cause a massive financial strain on the people of this country the Planning Commission working group has failed to address more immediate issues. If they do implement all the various taxes and impose more taxes on petrol which is already heavily taxed, it will over burden the consumer severely. And, when almost all Indian cities simply do not have the infrastructure to provide convenient and necessary public transport for the people of India, just how exactly does this ‘Planning Commission working body’ expect our citizens to go about their business when they simply cannot afford all the major hike in taxes.

Zigwheel doesn't seem to understand that E Sreedharan (or is it Greed-haran) has got the perfect public transport system for lining his pockets. The infra structure of his deep pocketed trousers is very well developed.

Re: Green Tax Tax To Be Levied on Petrol Vehicles

This is pure loot by the Govt. The 3% amount of green tax at the time of sale will be applicable even on 2 wheelers & there will be Rs.2/l tax on petrol.[anger]

Why is this Govt performing like bunch of idiots in all aspects ?
It would be better if ministers stop taking a covoy of 10-20 cars & travel by bus. Even the babus should cycle to their office even if they reach late, in anycase they don't work either.

In cities like Pune, we need to pay octroi on all the stuff, including petrol, diesel. Now even groceries, fruits i.e. agri products will also come under octroi.
And despite all this, the public transport in Pune is non-existent, & roads are such that even Land Rover will fail mid-way [frustration].

Re: Green Tax Tax To Be Levied on Petrol Vehicles

@ S Class - The private sector deals with people that aren't idiots and the authorities are what is left over.

But look at the bright side of things. These idiots are thinking that the way they are making money is a brilliant idea to fill their pockets. What they don't realise is that filled pockets don't matter when they are dead. And dead they will be soon because people are having slowly but surely enough. Even in Britain with the most complacent people, where the public is fleeced constantly by the banks, things are turning and some of the people say Tunesia ends in London. I believe it will end in Delhi.

These governmental idiots lead a dangerous life not seeing with their greed where they are standing. Even if it is some way to go. One day they will wake up, but then it will be to late. That will be a bright day.

Re: Green Tax Tax To Be Levied on Petrol Vehicles

I would say
1.Rather than hitting on common mans pocket, they can hit swish bank and get all the black money back to India.
2. Have babus use a special Bus transport for their work (if they really have)
3. Use one care per head rather than 1 for each of their family member.
4. Have their gust houses close to work location. Which can help them travel in traffic with convey and trouble common public.

I want to add more but this list will never end. Hope they feel the pinch of public.
