14, Jan 2016 By Sandeep Kadian

Patna: The Bihar government has decided to impose 13.5 per cent tax on luxury items in the state to get additional revenue for the state. Some of the items taxed under this scheme include Samosas, Jalebis and mosquito repellants.

Faking News came up with a list of suggestions for Bihar CM that can also be included under luxury items in the state.

Law and order: Want to make sure you don’t have to worry about getting kidnapped, ransom calls and extortion demands? Get premium law and order service from the state after paying luxury tax.

Horse riding: Tej Pratap Yadav recently showed how horse riding will cut pollution and will give us clean air. Now clean air is definitely a luxury in today’s world so people fighting pollution through horse riding should pay for the luxury of clean air.

Electricity: 24X7 electricity is a luxury in the hinterland which even the VIPs can’t always afford. Now, avail this facility after paying the required luxury tax.

Cheating: Helping a friend or relative cheat is a dangerous task. Don’t risk your life like that. Pay luxury tax and walk in to the classroom to pass the chits to your friend inside.

Chakhna: With all the snacks like Samosa, Kachori etc being listed in the list of luxury items, it is discriminatory to leave out Chakhna. Just because alcohol ban is coming into place, we will start ignoring chakhna? Not fair.
