"One time non-refundable security"
Normally the amount of security always is refundable subject to certain fullfilment of terms and conditions. Surprisingly MTNL has used it. Now the question arise as to why it has been used.
In my view the word security might have been used is to mislead the tax department. If the charges taken from the subscribers are shown as service charges then it will attract service tax. The security amount does not attract taxes.
MTNL being PSU trying to evade taxes is really a cause of concern for the taxation department. Delhi Govt. need to look into the issue from legal point of view and possibility of recovery of the evaded taxes. more
should check it immediately. more
Nobody cares for the consumer, even he or she does not know his rights. Thus we say government revenue is taking a hit. Actually, the revenue can go to hell, there is much cheating by the head clerk every moment in your life. Non refund of tds is one such case.
My request to this August group is to please see the consumer angle, and stop seeing things from the eyes of the head clerk. Many, and perhaps most, things will fall in place.
Cheers and have a good day. more
