The Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee is expected to make the announcement in Lok Sabha today. He will also table the Goods and Services Tax bill before the Parliament. The health care tax imposed had led to a public outcry among those in the medical fraternity with Dr.Devi Shetty emerging in the forefront expressing his ire.
Dr Shetty was involved in an immense amount of charitable endeavors had called the new move from the govt insensitive and had declared Mar 12 as 'Misery Day'. He had also organized an 'Axe the Health Tax' campaign calling all citizens to register their protest that Dr.Shetty called anti-aam aadmi.
It's finally kudos to Dr.Shetty and also to the government for waking up to the issues of the public. A welcome change indeed!
