:oooh no:
The government in the Indian state of Bihar has raised the entertainment tax on direct to home (DTH) subscription services, according to the Times of India.It has invoked its Entertainment Tax Act, 1984 and will now charge 15% of the whole package. Until now, the tax stood at 15 rupees a month per connection.

The government has no plans to charge cable users any additional tax.By deciding to raise tax on DTH packages, Bihar is following states like Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, which have used the additional money to implement various development plans.:hysterical:
