We are producing below the BJP’s announcement on tax from as made by them in their Election Manifesto for 2014 Lok Sabha Elections :-


UPA Government has unleashed ‘Tax terrorism’ and ‘uncertainty’, which not only creates anxiety amongst the business class and negatively impacts the investment climate, but also dents the image of the country. BJP realizes the importance of having a Tax Policy Roadmap, so that people are aware of the future and plan accordingly. We will:

  • provide a non adversarial and conducive tax environment
  •  rationalize and simplify the tax regime
  • overhaul the dispute resolution mechanisms
  • bring on board all State governments in adopting GST, addressing all their concerns
  • provide tax incentives for investments in research and development, geared towards indigenization of technology and innovation

    The new Govt. should re-introduce deduction u/s 80L upto Rs.20,000/- towards interest on bank deposits. Service tax on small AC restaurants should be removed. There should be no reverse charge mechanism on supply of manpower since the recipient cannot take input tax credit. Further, a small body corporate is obliged to get itself registered under service tax even if its service tax turnover does not reach Rs.9 Lacs.

  6. vijayendra says:

    If only the government exempts tax on interest on bank deposits of individual depositors upto Rs.1,00,00,000(total deposits of the assessee in different banks) it will be not only a big relief to individual depositors but also money from other sectors like mutual funds, insurance policies and company deposits will pour into banking sector. This gives the much needed resources to the banking system

  7. PNV GIRI says:

    Will be happy if the new Govt. brings less complicated tax rules and abolishes service tax on certain items like food at small a.c. restaurants and reverse charge mechanism etc. It will be nice if they change the ST3 to T N VAT system of filing – uploading of all the details along with payment on monthly or quarterly basis.
