Smoking is Costlier now

Consumers will have to pay more for petrol, diesel, cars, TVs, cigarettes, tobacco, air-conditioner, gold and silver as the government today announced hike in excise duty as part of a partial roll back of stimulus measures announced for reviving the economy.

On the other hand, mobile accessories, medical equipment, energy efficient CFL lamps, set top boxes, compact disc, toys and books will be cheaper on account of some tax concessions offered on these items by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee in the Union Budget for 2010-11.
