UPA Government to waive service tax on AC restaurants if food bill embossed with Sonia and Rahul Gandhi’s photos

After Aditi restaurant saga, the UPA Government decided to stop any further 'indirect protests' from restaurant owners and asked them to start gluing photos of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on food bills to save service tax on food. UPA Government issued urgent notice after few of Congress workers shut Mumbai's Parel based Aditi Restaurant after they found some 'funny', sorry 'defamatory' content about UPA on bills.

"We want to bring discipline in the system otherwise any sundry person will start mocking us," said Congress spokesperson and part time minister Manish Tewari.

He said "The scheme is beneficial to all. All the restaurants bills will carry Madamji and Baba's photos with message about UPA Government's work, like MNREGA, Food Security Act and many other great things. If the restaurant owner put a message mocking BJP, NDA or Narendra Modi, then we will give him a double tax reversal."

According to Finance Ministry official, the new law will put additional burden of Rs 2000 crore on government's financials.

"We plan to bring air tax (tax on breathing) to meet the gap," said the official, requesting anonymity.
