A doubt:
Whether Union is sharing the "Additional Duty of Excise on Motor Spirit" collected with States since it is termed as "surcharge"
Major feature of CESS/SURCHARGES is that they need not be shared with the States by Union as they are not coming under divisible pool
So if any one knows, kindly enlighten me about this "Special Additional Duty on Excise on Motor Spirit" See this year budget proposal
This is important to counter a WhatsApp propaganda circulating about Petrol prices. If any of you know, kindly enlighten me
I got my answer & then I have a conspiracy theory of why they are pushing for GST on Petroleum 😛 Don't expect prices will fall due to it
As friends here as well as politicial parties are taking up the cause of #PetroleumLooting, I thought there is no need to deal with it.
A single WA forward in #malayalam from the propaganda factory accusing Kerala FM @thomasisaaq for Petrol price hike made me to delve deep
For non-malayalees, the translation is like this,
Centre gets only ₹12.48 as tax
while Govt of Kerala gets ₹27..
Main accused is Kerala FM
Next trigger was this tweet from our Petroleum Minister

Charity thy name is Union of India!

They believe in co-operative Federalism &
So increase tax on Petroleum to help State Treasuries! 😛😛
So this untold story of the #PetroleumLooting will be my next blog post in MINISTRY OF FACTS.. please wait for it!
