Now Indians make India cleaner

The news is just in that the government has announced a new “cess” (tax) on service tax which would be imposed from 15th of November this year. The new ‘Tax on Tax’, which is a 0.5% on all services that are bound for Service Tax payment, would be used for meeting specific goals under Prime Minister’s sanitation and cleanliness programme, including building toilets and proper sanitation facilities in the country.

Latest developments have seen various temples, churches and masjids becoming shareholders of companies listed on domestic exchanges. Numerous wealthy devotees are offering shares instead of donating cash and gold. Thus in the past few months more than 50 trusts of places of worship have opened demat and EEFC accounts.

This means, that from the coming 15th, everything from our mobile bills to eating, travelling and coaching classes fees are set to get more expensive.

However the official statement says, "Swachh Bharat cess is not another tax but a step towards involving each and every citizen in making contribution to Swachh Bharat. This will translate into a tax of 50 paisa only on every Rs 100 worth of taxable services. The proceeds from this cess will be exclusively used for Swachh Bharat initiatives,".

While many critics shun the idea raising questions over already existing funds being spent poorly, we believe that the Swachh Bharat Cess will give a chance to millions of Indians to contribute for a clean India. With the youth being aware and equipped like never before the idea of making India a clean and healthy country will definitely be a magnet for a lot of support.
