When MoIC and RSTA first proposed a raise in vehicle tax, we thought it was a dictatorial move. But we are happy that they have reconsidered their decisions now. Kudos to Lyonpo Nandalal and his gang! It seems so many Bhutanese can dream again.
And Lyonpo was quoted as saying: “... a policy where ‘I have bought my car but you should not buy one since it will lead to pollution’ will not work since people should have an opportunity to upgrade the status of their life.” (Kunesel) Thanks Lyonpo for speaking on our behalf.
Taxing a family buying more than one car makes sense too - some extra revenue for the government and hopefully, lessen traffic congestion.
