    According to the Government business man is earning very much,
    They don’t even know that the margins are shrinked to less than 4 percent but the lowest VAT tax slab on sale is 5 percent…
    The goverment wants all the people of india to be a slaves, as only they have subsidies are the salary man, rest all business mans are to get screwed..
    They don't want the common man to be get big. otherwise they have to hear him..
    In India if this structure will prevail for 20 years more, we will all be like bangladesh, as these countries only have labour (Nurses,un-skilled labor etc.) NO domestic production.

    All Thanks and credit goes to the GREAT INDIAN GOVERMENT, as they are so efficient (in corruption ) they think why the hell these people should get the money for just doing business…
