15% GST on computer parts !!!

Just as I have been waiting for the prices on my killer graphics card to go down, yippee, the government hikes the prices up.

The tax-free prices were a welcome and should have remained so. So far computer parts were not what exactly what I call cheap but some how affordable.

First the government announces tax-reliefs in the budget 05-06, public goes happy, government realizes loses in revenues in tax cut, government resorts back to old dirty tricks......... ;)

Where's ma piggy bank, oh shit, I am still Rs. 1557.75 short. If save Rs. 1 a day how long will it take me to.......
