During our recent dine in at a Dominos Pizza stores in the IT corridor of Chennai we found that a duplicate service tax entry is being added. Though it a zero amount the billing line items are very ambiguous. The tellers were not able to justify the same. Hence have raised this issue to Department of Sales Tax via PMO, Dominos Social Media team for their comments as well dropping a note to their corporate house.

We all know that bull-fighting has been banned by the Apex court (The Supreme Court of India) following petitions from animal welfare activists across the world. Despite this, a section of people in Avur village of Pudukkottai district in the state of Tamil Nadu has engaged in setting up a bull fight along with New year celebrations. A few people have also started sharing this as a victory message in running the sport in Whatsapp. The message has been reported to Government of Tamil Nadu vide petition number GOVTN/E/2017/00007.
The message that was captured by the editorial is below:

As a gesture of supporting Shri Narendra Modi’s venture against black money we sent out the following petition to PM Cell on 13th November 2016.
- Merchants refusing cashless transactions by charging at least 3.5% over and above the bill price. They want everything in cash. And some merchants charge extra for giving receipt too.
- Builders force people to pay a percentage in cash and a percentage by cheque (some play here by asking to write a cheque to a different name too).
- Auto wallahs are another big source of black money mafia. The Government run complaints helpline is a catastrophic failure and autos continue to fleece passengers with their skyrocketing prices. And incidentally it is said that autos are owned by powerful people and hence a good collection of auto operational revenues reach them.
- IRCTC, Government run Bus Booking Services like APSRTC, KSRTC, TNSTC, Electricity Payment Services by TANGEDCO charge higher premium charges for cashless transactions which is a discouraging trend.
Can you kindly look into these too?
