Are we struggling for their welfare?Many of us are salaried employees and income tax from our salaries will be deducted by the employer and will be paid into the government account. It may be ranging from 10 to 30% of our earnings. As responsible citizens, we should not cry for paying the income tax. Agreed.
We go to the market and we purchase articles required for our household purpose. We have to pay tax as decided by the government. We pay.
We go to a hotel to have a sip of coffee or tea. We pay for the cost as well as the tax.
We travel on the road. we pay road tax for our vehicle to run on the roads.
We undertake journey's on our vehicles. There will be toll gates. We pay as required. If you travel from Hyderabad to Vijayawada by road the toll to be paid is about Rs.500/- one way.
A majority of our money is going back to the governments in the form of tax. I feel about 50% of our earnings are going to the government. So far everything is good.
But the question is what is happening to all this money? Is it really getting used for a real cause? How much is swallowed by the middlemen? No estimation. By thinking in these lines I feel always that we are struggling for the welfare of these middlemen? Knowledgeable members can express their views.
