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
Liquor                        Punjab        Chandigarh    Haryana
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.

  1. I am 73 y old and firm supported to vote for AKALIES ( BADAL SARKAR ) COW CESS ON FAUJIS IS CRIMINAL & will
    think about to withdraw in - 2017.

  2. I am surprised , how the Badal govt could do this ? Not good .

  3. Till now I was under the opinion that Punjab Govt is always supportive of Faujis.But it turned out to be a friend of former finance minister of P.Chidambaram

  4. All fauji must wait and. Watch for 2017 OVER COW CESS CAREFULLY.

  5. All are crying about Ex-serviceman
