Dr. Jogeshwar mahantaDespite corruption India is prospering.Last year it happened to be the 10th economic power and this year it is the 5th. Of course, in Human Development Index it is 119th.
Now the choice is should or should not we be coorrupt?
Is OUT OF BOX thinking possible without corruption?

Just was going through relevant post to share a small piece of informantion ,Kindly go through,
I found it informative so sharing.
About Service Tax..... how the restaurants loot your
money ... Be aware !
A PATRIOTS Member updated his
status: "Surprisingly after reading about he "Service Tax", I
strongly decided to share this information to everyone. This
happened at the restaurant. Let me explain.We had been to several restaurants
recently. I observed that "service tax" has been mis-used
and charged to the customers like you and me. Let me give an example.
"Food and Beverage =
Service Charges @ 10% =
Rs. 100.00 (10% on the Food and
Service Tax @ 4.94% =
(4.94% on F&B + Service Charges)
= Rs. 145.00
Total =Rs. 1299.34
As per the definition -
"Service Tax can be charged only for the services provided to the customer".
Now, see what is happening here in
the above said example.
Service Tax should be charged only
on the Service Charges amount i.e Rs.100 and not on the entire amount
In this example, the customer should
be charged only Rs 4.94, whereas he has been charged Rs. 49.00
Where does this money go? Only the
restaurant owner and the chartered accountants who work for them
know. So, I have started asking them
the questions - and surprised to see the reactions from the famous
restaurants. Either they say: Sir we cannot change the format of the bill -
so , we will recalculate and tell you the revised amount. You may
pay only that. Sir, you do not need to pay the Service Tax
I now have 3 to 4 restaurant bills,
for which I have paid only the service tax - on the service
charges and not on the total amount.
Every bill must carry the TIN number
and Service Tax Number, if they charge it. So, I ask for the Service
tax number if it is not available in the receipt that they provide.
We cannot go to
any government official and ask them to get this right - because of
Please remember - we cannot change
any political leader - but we can change ourselves. If we change ourselves
- things will change".
Ask for the right tax calculation
and pay only the tax which is supposed to be paid. Verify every bills and
receipts that you make payment on. We wonder which next Industry, Hospitals,
Entertainment Industry, Public Service Industry, Civic Authorities etc is
cheating the common man in various disguises. Can this loot & Corruption be
ever stopped !
