How would government pay for infrastructure of the country if no one pays to the government? Out of 136 cr only 8 crore people pays tax and the tax amount which we pay seems huge but no other options...


what infrastructure? 😂😂😂😂

The taxes sponsors a kid who would never have gotten education - so the whole society uplifts. It sponsors road, police, army etc etc - its your taxes that is running the country


I don't think it's a burden, you can't expect a middle class people who earn 10k per month to pay tax, do you? Be Proud to be an Indian and just think of public transport, public facilities and you can waive off some of your taxes by donating as well.. Just think if we are not paying tax and if you want to go somewhere, do you really want to buy a compartment (train) instead of nominal charges..


There is a huge income divide in Indian population. Due to good education and skillset, you earn more than 99% of the population. You can spend the money for whatever you like and easily call for services from people who earn much lesser than you and are struggling in daily life. Without a Government system in place which keeps this population happy, do you think you can survive peacefully with such a huge income divide around? Think of what's happening in Ukraine.


Why do only the ones who worked hard to give their kids good education or the kids who worked hard to get a job be taxed? Why should the tax not be equal for everybody? Is it a punishment to work hard in life?

To fund the government. We actually run the country through our taxes.

Just by earning high!!! Isn’t that what we heard?

To get the benefits we deserve from the government. But sadly I don't think that is true anymore
