Traffic Trouble, Tax Troubles
Traffic traffic traffic. The Vellayambalam-Kowdiar road has been flooding with traffic today, owing to one side of the road being blocked for a while. Policemen and traffic police run hither and thither managing, controlling and diverting the bikes and cars, buses and jeeps that came in the way. There is going to be a march, on-lookers guess and they guess right. The Kerala Pravasi Sangham are taking out the march this time, towards the Raj Bhavan.
The march is in protest against the new direct tax code proposal to make NRIs liable to pay tax if they stay over 60 days in India, as against the provision of 182 days in the existing Income Tax Act.
