Reality TV personality, Rakhi Sawant feels the raise in basic exemption limit on IT is the best thing the government has done for Indian women today.
She says, "The law isnít doing much for the Indian women. This is the least they could do."
Speaking about the new tax slab, Rakhi adds, "It is a good thing for the folks in my industry. But I think the common man should be exempted from any sort of income tax."
She even asked us if the rumour she heard about the government sending a vegetable vendor an income tax notice was true. "Income tax is a good thing for all of those who are rolling in money, especially black money," she quips.
Rakhi believes the reduction in excise duties on small cars and two-wheelers will have a 50-50 implication on the masses. "It will be a good thing for the middle class, but the government will have to face the consequences with more polluted cities and damage to infrastructure."
"They should be banned," she says, when we told her about the duty raise on non-filter cigarettes. She feels these should be made so expensive that the masses will refrain from using them.
The cellphone provision doesnít really bother Rakhi. "I get my cellphones free of charge!" Her friends keep gifting her cellphones, she claims.
We also heard her telling her co-stars, "Bahut achcha budget hai!"
