My friend you don’t get the government’s target,

the target is not those wealthy people but the middle and the lower class.

For example the duty will be the same whether the mobile phone is worth Rs 1500 or 15,000.

but that will effect people who is not seeking for luxury but for needs.

The current government view is simple

I you are from poor class you will be looking for a mobile around Rs. 1500, you will pay 750 (total since current budget) duty or 50% of the phone value.

But if you are rich looking for mobile Rs. 15000 or up then you will pay just 5% or less of the mobile phone value.

Thats why they don’t set the fixed % on mobiles phones because to protect the wealthy class and rip off the lower class.

Totally agree…

Apart from Gvt’s prospective ( Which is also true that hit the iron when its hot )… I Do think that most of the “shiny mobile phone” holders of this country are totally illiterate, they don’t even know what " mega pixel " implies … but still " iss main 5 mega pixel camera hai "

We are blind… and buying torches :confused:

Having said that, the govt gets justified for what they doing… you know they have needs too :D
