Unrest among engineering students as Jaitely proposes GST on porn in hostels

Kharagpur. Adding more to the woes of engineering students who are single, the Finance Ministry has proposed that transfer of porn from one device to another will attract Goods and Service Tax (GST) as the activity can rightly be termed as ‘supply of service for leisure purpose’.

Increasing the ambit of GST to generate more revenues for Centre and State Governments, the office bearers were given the task of finding new avenues where tax was not levied under previous regime. MPs and State MLAs who were caught watching porn in the Parliament and State Assemblies unanimously gave the idea of taxing porn supplies to the GST Council headed by Sh. Arun Jaitely, who himself couldn’t agree more on this.

Expressing his joy over the taxability, Jaitely said, “The States were continuously cribbing upon the loss of revenue share under GST. As porn would be taxable now, the treasury of the Sovereigns will be filled by surplus cash to waive off the farmer loans for next seven generations.”

Jaitely continued, “The revenue under this model will be divided on 60:40 basis, depending upon the domicile of students involved in the transaction. 60% share of the tax will be credited to the state of the student who has send the file and 40% will be earned by the state of the student who has received that file. It’s a fair play situation benefiting both the states as well as the students. Monthly audit would be done by the committee which would be headed by the MLA who has watched porn for most number of time during the active session of the respective state assembly.”

“Though Govt. is happy with this move, but the engineering students are against it. They are scared sharing the details of the transactions. Muttu Swamy, who is well known as ‘Chatur’ for supplying all type of rated material in his hostel said, “Main nude supply karega aur uski detail bhi dega??? What kind of nonsense is this. These private transactions should begin and end in the same room. Government has released a return format where they are asking Sender’s details, Receipient’s details, Details of device to which it was supplied, Nature of supply (whether HD, Mallu or Normal Print alongwith resolution details). Main to ye sab karta-karta thak jayega,” said Muttu and left for sharing the latest edition of Playboy Magazine with his friends.

The engineering students have come down to streets and have asked the government to exempt GST on it as they would to cut their chai-sutta expense to pay more taxes. They are losing on both the sides.
