please share your ideas here ........

is GDB mein hmein is budget k disadvantages batane hyn .........its my thinking

critical analysis men to ye bhe likh skty hen k govt. ka konsa step acha he aur konsa nhe..

Analysis to yunhi hota hy na????

phir 3 negative aspects bta dengy....

i agreed with u sis, i hv a point that govt. lauched 2 new steps of taxes on saleries,

1800 cc to 2500cc cars pe 50% tax kam krne ka idea dia gya tha budget mein...........is that these 2 points helpful for the requirment of our gdb? 

Sales tax bhe to ek negative aspect he, is tax ka burden bhe to public pr hoga...unki affordability jo k phly hi km he mazid km hojaye gi.

what do you think??

aur dosri bat ye k hybrid cars 1200cc (usually people belonging to upper class owe them) ko duty sy exempt krna bhe to negative he...is tarah to unhy duty he nhe pay krni hogi...yani ameron ko benefit mila...

1200cc to 1800cc ka point mujhy thora confuse kr rha he....is main woh cars included hen jo k usually mini trucks waghera hen, yani transportation men useful hongi...ye to positive bat hui na, kyunk woh hamry liay useful hen...

salary tax b tu negative aspect hy
