HAPPENsamosataxThe Nitish Kumar government in Bihar has decided to impose a 13.5 percent tax on savoury items like the well-loved samosa, kachauri and branded namkin, as well as others. The tax will also be applied on sweets priced over Rs.500 a kg and to mosquito repellents as well.

Sand, cosmetics, perfumes and hair oil are also to be taxed at 13.5 percent, as the Bihar cabinet stamped its seal of approval on 23 proposals of different departments.

The same applies to all kinds of UPS as well as auto parts and battery parts.
