We nepali are Tax Slaves

The budget 2071-72 is about to be announced and I am surprised by the way the political leaders and bureaucrats are thinking and making policies.
It’s a simple mathematics about the tax and income level and why is it that after paying tax, Service charge and VAT in most of the daily consumerable goods, still the public is out lashed with more taxes.
The government what so ever does not effort in reducing the prices where every day the prices of consumerable goods are going up but when it comes to giving benefits and relief there is no point in even saying it?

In average if you look at the market you can do the calculation yourself?
It doesn't even take more to get the number and how restrained we are by our tax rules.

The GDP per capital for 2014 is estimated to be USD 1600 that is roughly (1600*95.82) which is 1,53,312. My question is how a normal person can survive when there is a crisis situation like this. Economic depletion is killing poor and the gap between the rich and poor is gaining its peak.

Normal food:  It costs NRS 100 (plain food), if there is a family of average 5 people which is very common the mathematics goes like this

Total food expenses =5*2*100*365=  3,65,000

Our Tax system has a tax redemption of up to 250,000, to pay 1 Percent

DO YOU get it !

Today if you look at taxes, we pay 200% vehicle tax while buying a car or a bike and still the government is not able to give better options for public transport system. If there is no alternative to public transportation then the taxes in Bike and Car cost less than 10,00,000 should be redeemed. This is not logical that the government trying to evade the public from facility. It should rather facilitate than to hinder. Taxes in normal terms go for higher earning so why not have 400% taxes for cars and bikes costing more than 40,00,000 that is practical. On one hand the government is not able to facilitate with proper transportation system and its imposing more taxes, what a strategy?

How evident is it that there is no facility and still we all pay taxes.

The average money that the government thinks is below the minimum earning capacity. Our Government just wants the public to pay taxes for no benefits what so ever.

Being born in Nepal is like being born as a TAX SLAVE, Your government just wants you to pay taxes in everything that you do, rest is history……………………

5 corers to the member of parliament can make our politicians accountable

I think the idea of giving 5 corers to the Member of Parliaments(MPs) directly for assisting various regional public and social work is a great initiative. It would be a direct investment from the state to the MPs to public.As right now due to lack of proper mechanism most of the development work budget gets freezed or corrupted due to lengthy procedural administrative work and most of the times when the real work needs to be done things don't work according to plan. Reality is most of the times, the budget gets freezed at the end of the fiscal year in absence of proper mechanism and the administration in view of finishing the budget misuses the funds in unnecessary projects. This has been happening from the past few decades and it has been practiced all along. I feel sad that the money that could have been used for proper projects gets cramped over some unnecessary unwanted project that was not even in view of consideration and the money gets wasted in view of getting freezed. The habit of working late or working without a efficient strategy is what has lacked the Nepal Government's Administration

What's the use?

Like said, previously the money channeled through many hands so there was more chances of corruption but since the money would directly be given to the MPs hope they would be more careful and accountable as their name and reputation is involved.

Apart from that corruption cannot be stopped, it can only be controlled and I think this is the best way to make our politician more accountable but there should be effective monitoring mechanism from the public and the state.......

I think its better for the MPs aleast to try to make it use when we have already given everything, why not this

No political culture in Nepal

Previously, during the king's regime when the roads would be blocked people protested in many ways. Now after the declaration of federalism when the same politicians who opposed the kings way of making public suffer are applying the same techniques of making the people wait hours in the sun in the name of security, the public are in a dilemma. The normal public is pissed with the political attitude of ignorance and carelessness.

It's beyond public apathy to make the public suffer in the sun in the name of security,  politicians who have no ethics and Morales 

We had only one King and now due to so called pro-democratic movement we have 100s of kings. They block the roads and public service any time and any where.......

Brazil looses their World cup dream

Wow what a match in between the rivals of the  FIFA World Cup football ( #fifawc2014) in an epic battle of sportsmanship. The Germans lead their way to victory in playing the best  strategy to target their opponent's  defense in making the best use of playing their game. The Brazilian team coughed their skills.
The gods of football are dead, they have been turned to humans as they are merely players. More or less  Nemar's absence makes the team no more than just a lousy player of ball not GODS. The stadium is silent in tears in support of BRAZIL. This is an end to the world cup dream for the Brazilians football fans around the globe. One thing that needs to be noted is the game of football has been changing, from the 70's when football evolved, the game has changed so much that previously it use to be ruled by one or two star players saving the day but now the game has took over where the team is responsible for making that effort to make victory. In the past big names have evolved in the glory of footballs like Pele, Madonna, Roberto Carlos,  Roberto baggio, David Bekhham,  Zinedine Zidane etc all these players made history with their dedication and hard work but now things have changed,  the football that use to be just a game of 20 players have evolved as a team effort of strategy that demands more better techniques.

Billions of football fans are watching the match live with 110 TV station directly showing the match, what a sad day to mark  the history of football in the making for Brazil. for a country that lives breathes and talk football a worst day to remember.

Well evolved with better strategy and interest, football is more than just a game.

Its a record defeat by Germany over Brazil. Finally we can say the gods of football are dead.

Nepal's Football, Corruption at its best !

what can I say ?

Power and post can certainly make it look big and matters even in case of law. Going through transitional phase, Nepal is facing difficulty in every aspect of its development and growth.

With such traumatic experience reality is something that always subsides its affects in various ways.
Once again Ganesh Thapa, the president of the  All Nepal Football Association(ANFA) is in controversy of misusing funds of ANFA for personal purposes.
The Vice President  and the team of ANFA led by Kishor Rai claims that Ganesh Thapa has been using ANFA’s money for his personal use. The team has filed a case at CIAA in regards to investigating transparency and accountability under his leadership.

Kishor Rai VP of ANFA was quoted in Rajhdhani daily that “Ganesh Thapa claims that he has contributed his life for Nepalese Football but in reality he has been using ANFA’s fund for his personal use instead of investing in the development of Nepalese Football.”

Following the corruption case of Mohammed bin Hammam, The Associated Press revealed that Thapa transferred  an illegal amount of $100,000 from Bin Hammam in 2009. The money was deposited into the personal bank account of his son Gaurav Thapa who is also a FIFA Referee.

FIFA banned Mohamed bin Hammam, and accused him of using the Asian Football Confederation bank accounts to conduct his private affairs.

Thapa later reveled  that he had borrowed the money for his personal use which to this day is controversial. The CIAA had stepped up but the case vanished in view of his political connection with his big brother Kamal Thapa who is the chairman of the Ratriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) Nepal.

Ganesh Thapa has been elected unopposed as the president of All Nepal Football Association (ANFA), from past 19 years.
