Maoist tax



Sindhuli - The Maoists have announced in all the villages that the people no longer have to give donations. Instead, the rebels will levy taxes based on personal income. So far only teachers have been subjected to this ruling. Previously they handed over a month's salary every four months but now they will have to pay a yearly tax amounting to 13 days of their salary. Farmers are not exempt: they must pay for every buffalo and goat as well as on acreage. Not even the poorest farmers are spared taxes with families are forced to pay based on the worth of their homes. Tiled and tin roofs will be taxed more than thatched roofs. The rebels have also ordered NGOs and community-based organisations not to start any projects without their written permission. Local government workers, including the VDC secretary, will not be allowed to work in the village anymore. The government budget allocated for the VDC will be used as at the Maoists' discretion.
