Cow Cess on Defence CSD Canteens Liquor in Pb is criminal.
1. Pb Govt has decided to charge 10% Cow Tax on CSD Canteen Liquor, to purchase fodder for looking after the cows in Pb sheds. This is criminal & killing effect on Faujees. Pb Govt is insensitive to the welfare & respect of Soldiers & Ex-Servicemen. Liquor rates in Pb are already highest in the states around. Please note, here is a Liquor rates comparative chart:-
Liquor Rates: Comparative Chart
Beer King Fisher Rs 82/- 55/- 39/-
Rum Old Monk Rs 152 116/- 99/-
Rum Contesa Rs 163 121/- 103/-
Blender’s Pride Rs 465/- 268/- 271/-
100 Pipers Rs 721/- 526/- 527/-
2. You may kindly also note that there are not more than 2-3% tax payers in the country and defence personnel (including retirees) are the highest contributor in this regard. Therefore, we feel that Pb Govt is very unreasonable & illogical in over taxing its ESM & Soldiers in Pb. We request Pb Govt to reconsider this decision & provide relief to Def Pers in Pb. Such expenses should be met out of the state budget funds. We shall be obliged please.
