What is LBT ?
- Sakaal Times
Tuesday, 2 April 2013 - 05:45 PM IST

What is LBT?

LBT is the tax on entry of goods for use / consumption within areas of the local civic bodies. It is a self assessment or account based method of paying local tax, where the businessmen or trader himself declares his tax liability. Unlike in the octroi regime, trucks carrying goods will not be subjected to physical checking at check posts.

How does LBT work?

It works differently from the octroi system. Traders have to compile a list of all goods procured within the month, feed the matter into the software provided by the civic body to check their LBT liability. They have to make payment once every 40 days using online portals, cheque, demand draft or cash through a designated bank or counters of the civic bodies.

Significance of LBT

LBT will be the main source of income for civic bodies. It contributes between 50-70 per cent of the actual revenues of the corporation. The Pune Municipal Corporation collected Rs 1314.27 crores by way of octroi for the financial year 2012-2013, while the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation  collected Rs 1200 crores  in the last financial year.

If a importer is a genuine and paying octroi then their is no difference to pay Octroi or LBT, instead it is business friendly for him, he can be now safeguarded from the agent and babu's on Naka and material will reach to his business place at earliest, main problem is a less clarification on the clauses of the LBT i.e. Officer can check 5 years records .. so many think that officer will check their old record's from April 2008, but it is wrong perception ..in my view in any month of year 2013 officer can demand records start from april 2013 and in future year say 2020 , officer can demand from April 2015, mean government regulate the officer to check only 5 years back records not more then that.. also to collect dues holding a PPF account is not good decision... No Tax evasion calculated in India and demanded across the table , it can only be collected with a due procedure and if the officer find some tax evasion at a time of assessment .

I do not understand why these traders are opposing, some where they have to pay taxes and rates would be same in both cases. And a small trader will not have to bear the LBT if he is not importing from outside, so their involvement in the Protest in illogical and it also seems that most of the big Importers of goods in the City boundaries are worried about paying LBT because now they wont be able to 'negotiate' at Octroi posts to save on Tax liability. These Traders should stop harassing common man and open their shops completely and stop protesting because their agitation will make lives difficult of common men only as Govt is poised to implement LBT come what may.

Maharashtra is the only state in which Octroi was paid and LBT has replaced it.The are some people in the above messages who feel the some traders fear that they will be exposed - all are entitled to their views. Its really surprising when we find that there is no Single Channel or Radio Station who are covering this - in fact heard one of the radio stations air the views about how the traders are holding the general public at ransom to get their demands fulfilled - let me throw some light on the past agitations which would enlighten them - Autos and Taxis Strike / BMC Workers Strike / Sanjay Dutt Going to Jail / Sreesanth and the others caught for Spot Fixing - if all this can be shown why not the agitating traders problems be shown-it has been known from a relaiable source that the media has been warned not to cover any of the agitation rallies-so guys just think who is trying to hide here the Corrupt Congress Government or the Traders - THINK

7>WHEN LBT IS NOT PRESENT IN ANY OTHER PLACE IN THE WORLD INCLUDING INDIA EXCEPT MAHARASHTRA . WHY IS IT BEING IMPLEMENTED ONLY IN MAHARASHTRA WHICH GIVES INNUMERABLE RIGHTS TO OFFICERS WHO ARE ONE OF THE MOST CORRUPT IN THE WORLD ? WHY IS THIS BLACK ACT OF INSPECTOR RAJ BEING IMPLEMENTED IN MAHARASHTRA ? 8> CM HAD MENTIONED IN HIS CLARIFICATION THAT IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE AUTONOMY OF LOCAL BODIES THIS TAX HAS TO BE LEVIED . WHICH AUTONOMY? THE AUTONOMY TO COMMIT GRAFT ? TILL DATE WHAT HAS HAPPENED OF SO MANY GRAFTS ? WHY HAS THE MONEY NOT RETURNED BACK TO STATE ? 9> INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND HAS CATEGORICALLY INFORMED TO STOP TAKING ENTRY TAX SUCH AS OCTROI OR LBT , THEN WHY IS IT BEING LEVIED IN MAHARASHTRA ? 10>THE AUTHOR OR CREATOR OF LBT CONCEPT ? HE SHOULD BE GIVEN BHARAT RATNA AWARD FOR COMING OUT WITH MOST BLACK ACT IN HISTORY OF INDIA FROM THE TIME OF BRITISHERS & THE MOGHULS .

There seems to be some confusion with people in jobs..u really think this tax is levied on traders or to check their account books n make them pay tax..well let me clear some doubts.. LBT money is collected for your city development by muncipal corporation. It is an indirect tax on the product only paid by traders on goods procured from outside the city and eventually covered by traders by raising the prices of the goods. so we all end up paying it indirectly some way or the other. The problem is government wants some one to collect these taxes (essential to run a city) in this case it has choosen the traders.. but the way the tax works it kills the local trader as the goods procured will be expensive as compared traders in other states(note there is no LBT outside maharashtra)Now the muncipal corporation needs money and rightly so. Y not collect it through cess on electricity consumption. That would include everyone paying tax with no corruption

Octroi with, as it feels that the latter is an outdated system of taxation that has encouraged corruption. Unlike Octroi, which was collected at various entry points into the city, LBT is a monthly tax that will be calculated based on records that traders with an annual turnover of over Rs3 lakh have to provide to the state.Banishing Octroi will do away with endless queues of vehicles at check nakas. Also, LBT will reportedly reduce the prices of several commodities including petrol, diesel and LPG. LBT will not be levied on rice, wheat, pulses, cotton, bangles and even organic manure, etc

Impose LBT and implement with 100% transperancy. Whoever thinks LBT will give rise to corruption, are people who are already thinking about bribing officers. Offering bribe is a bigger crime than accepting it. And for those who don't like Maharashtra Government is free to move their business out of the state.

If traders, instead of paying lbt tax for every month, if they statrted giving bribe to LBT officers, then it'll b good source of income for LBT officers. n Our generation will c more corrupt Maharashtra, we'll see few more corrupt officers n news on television. Again we post our opinions arguments on social networking sites and keep on discussing. If LBT can be implimented so easily then why not the law which are useful for social issues? LBT is good in some sense if it implemented in proper way. but govt shud do some changes for poor traders and entrepreneurs.

Sahil - Tuesday, 14 May 2013 - 10:35 PM IST
Here are the reasons why the traders are against LBT: 1) traders wil have to pay taxes every 40 days. 2) they wil have to maintain records of sales and purchase of every item,which as a business man i know is NOT AT ALL possible. 3) the government is giving civic authorities, the authority to check the traders home, shops, godowns, stop their vehicle and check their stock, which will do nothin but increase corruption and fill their own pockets. 4) on top of it they are imposing a fine 5 times the sale if the accounts mismatch 5) its only being implemented in maharashtra, unlike any other state which does not even have octroi or any other tax other than VAT 6) the state government is gonna revise the rates for LBT every year, so at present where the rates when LBT is implemented wil rise to 15-20% , you can imagine what will happen when the rates are hiked further.

LOcal Bodt Tax is a good initative from Government., What I feel that Only those are in job/Service are paying taxes on their income. & even with good salary package they cann't afford to buy one flat or any property But when ever i am going for buying proprty like flat or plot. It is always out of budget. When i investigate who can buy plot/Flat/or any other big property those are only Gujarati, Marwadi & sindhi. Sindhi came from pakishtan with some money But how they earn show much money Reason :1. IN Octorai They are decalring less than they have it in Lorry & using hawala for there tran. Ex. Kirana, cloth store or genral store. when it came to our turn we are not asking for printed receipt. So , Please wake up these people looting the country. Go in Maharashtra & check thses people are not taking any loan from bank , if they will take it will not return to bank. Almost all the transcition thay are doing with cash. Check it ..

Dear All, LBT & Octroi...... Govt. Say they want to stop evasion of Octroi so they are introducing LBT guys this means they want to increase their Share of income through corruption. and if all the local bodies across India can operate without LBT or Octroi why only local bodies on Maharashtra need it. Also Ultimately no Trader/Importer or Businessman is here for social work they are here for business if they pay LBT/ Octroi they are directly or indirectly end up Charging to us (Customer) that means this fight is for us ( Jago Grahak Jago) For Everyones Information The only reason for slowed industrial growth in Maharashtra till date it was Octroi and hence forthit will be LBT just the names have changed effect is same. once there were major companies in Maharashtra now very few are left For Example :- Raymond Ltd Old Plant - Thane. New Plant VAPI, Gujrat. OTIS India Old Plant - Kandivali Maharashtra, New Plant Banglore

LBT is new form to maintain corruption so that Political leader in the local bodies can earn money. Almost 90% of tax payer money goes into the pocket of bug business and highly corrupted political people. All political, business and rich income have almost corrupt mindset. They just want to suck people money. Some how we citizen onf india should clear and straight and transparent policy so that all utilization of money is clearly accounted. Even the estimate provided by the contractor to local bodies need transparent evaluation as it involve some cut of people for santioning authority..many more to say...oof..just praying something should happen and these thing get washed out...

Hi friends, I went thru many suggestions and comments from many people.But after going thru the site www.abolishlbt.com i feel the traders who themselves are customers like us are fighting not only for themself but for us also.The law will only boost corruption and indirectly we will have to pay from our pocket.One section of traders not supporting is understood,but why the hell everyone.This shows the law is wrong and i think it is not the CM but the Officers who have penned down the law are responsible.They should be sacked immdtly and the law should be immdtly ABOLISHED.

I think after reading what shailendra has written, he is a man from the govt who wants to justify LBT! Those who think that the traders are wrong in protesting against lbt, should open some shop themselves and see what a trader has to undergo! We traders literally slog it out to meet our ends, and pay taxes! Till a few years back, until VAT was imposed, a trader had merely to sign form 31 behind every bill and had to pay CST only for out of state purchase. Now, this VAT runs into some 65000 crores! Who is collecting it for the govt-we traders only. What does the govt think abt us-we should just go on making money for them? Where is this money going? Can the CM give explanation? Only what the govt can do is go on blaming the traders for this strike-its a shame even some public does the same! Its a curse to live in Maharashtra!

Govt. do have right to tax public. But they also have equivalent duties also. We pay our hard earned money as tax and they pocket it via scams/bribes etc. If govt. feels that this is right step, then they should re-embers every single penny to public whichever is gone and going as bribes/scams/or any other way. THEN CERTAINLY WE WONT MIND TO PAY TAX BECAUSE IT WILL BE COMING BACK IN THE WAY OF REFORMS.

All those common citizens branding traders and businessmen as Chors and wanting to side by the govt. should know the govt. hidden agenda - that to bring the LBT to every citizen's doorstep in the next phase - giving municipal officers rights to visit households and collect LBT ! This was mentioned by the Sales Tax Commissioner sometime back and published in Sakal.

If Traders are not paying taxes then where is 60000 Crore revenue of VAT is comming from? Traders are ready to pay taxes but it should be easy in format. We have seen in first month 1% LBT on stamp duty increased 48 Crore revinue in PMC. same way 1 % LBT on VAT can be charged and Local body will get decided revenue. Why Govt is pushing complicated Method which is pro curruption? for more details visit www.abolishlbt.com

Dear All, I went through all comments made above regarding LBT, I also referred to few case studies done by few economists, and consultants...It is true that LBT is replacing Octroi and in a way its good. First and foremost thing we all must keep in mind is neither Govt not Businessmen are on side of common man. They both exists here to loot common people. I can see few benefits out of LBT: 1. There wont be any Octroi post in and around City charging Octroi. 2. Octroi is charged to Exporter and LBT will be charged to Importer. 3. There wont be any congestion at Octroi Nakas. 4. Country will end up saving huge diesel and other resources. 5. Police wont be able to take bribe on the road by truck drivers. 6. there will be reduction in Corruption, and along with common man, businessment will also have to pay taxes which they were avading and making money for long time 7. there will be reduction in prices which will help us.

Great... Our Government is trying new position of f**king common man... Already we are paying around 45-50% of our income as tax by means of several taxes (Income tax,sales tax, VAT,Octroi,Education cess, Service tax.... and so on) and this is one more LBT. That means we(common man) are Donkeys who are just here to exert ourselves for this f**king government and they will PISS on us as AJIT DADA says...

The government tells that traders are "CHOR" but everybody knows who is When the VAT was imposed it was told that they will remove the octroi Gujarat and Tamilnadu have done but our so called "SATYADI" Maharashtra govt have not -Cheated the People. By increasing 1% Extra VAT generated 50000crore extra per year still these BAGGERS wants EXTRA. Want to increase the corruption. "VAR MARO KANYA MARO PAR PANDIT KA GHAR BHARO" Asking traders to show all a/c. Have they shown any ? BMC is most corrupt - you see the roads of Maharashtra and compare with any other state. See any project implementation at Maharashtra and compare with othr state Maharashtra is collecting the Highest Taxes still the state is not having sufficient ELECTRICITY,WATER,Transportation etc Mumbai is the Financial capital of Country but look at the Civic Facility They just want to fill their pockets. Now you all decide who is "CHOR". GOD PLEASE GIVE THEM SOME GOOD SENCE JAY HIND.

What is hidden from the public, is the hurried manner in which this tax bill has been passed, the complications of filing returns and the summary powers given to the local authorities - It only shows inefficiency of the government and adding to the burden of the tax payer. visit www.abolishlbt.com to know about the details.

Is this some covert scheme to rob the people of their right to livelihood? Almost all the infrastructures such as railways, governance, shipping, water piping, etc. layed by the British era are yet in use with very little actually done by the present administrators. The metro they have attempted to build has a section falling even before its actual usage, peoples lives are at stake. Taxes are being levied left right and centre criminally without proper benefits being given to the people. The privatisation of essential services like electricity, shopping malls etc. ensures that while govt. earns people continue to suffer.( Why cant the government improve its own administration abilities and supply the people cost effective services).In the land of milk & honey, farmers are selling their womenfolk. Rampant corruption by some BMC creeps have reached so low as to beg 'Hafta' from a small dosa maker / trying to rob his livelihood. A form of TERRORISM.

if govt. want a datailed account of trades (LBT) then they should also give the same clarification on the expenses made by them which comes from the taxes we pay,and if govt. wants LBT then we people want the "lokpal bill". if the govt. ready to accept the lokpal bill then we are happy to accept LBT also (pehle hi kuch kam taxes the ab ek aur sahi par lokpak kyu nahi???). i thin a commom man have to spend his whole salary on taxes if every day these kind of taxes are going to add.

Daily killing to poor people in all the above mentioned way and only filling their pockets. I ask government to stay a common man life one day and see that what is our pain exactly.

this will affect to those businessmen who work for fixed contract price for their specific period of years. Sachin. it is not always customer bear taxes in some cases businessmen have to bear these taxes and there is no law made to compenstate these loses ( example sudden rises with the material cost ) so businessmen `think to contribute these TAXES. I think LBT should charge because of price standedion. Manny companies have been shifted inorder to reduce the cost of production and labour cost. Do to which these companies can provide goods in such a cost where in some companies not even think too. Ya it is loss to normal customer because they have to bear these couple of taxes.

By the looks of things soon the common man wont be able to supress any more and revolt, there need to be civil war, government officials need to be stripped nude and assaulted in public.

They are all covered under income tax. make all transactions by anybody through banks etc. India willbecome very competative internationally and we will be able to take advantage of the continuously strenthening chinese Yuvan. look at the larger picture and help the hard working businessmen and the workmen in the small scale sectors. provide them with electricity.

Why there should be jakat or lbt to be implemented,see gujarat state coming from back they have progressed gone much in front of Maharashtra they are top in every field like industry, water, light every where. Once Maharashtra was supplying electricity to Gujarat now the situation is we have to take electricity from them, now what is the condition Maharashtra is going down and down implementing of such taxes is increasing the burden on common man and their is no worry for the leaders. My question is that if you are collecting so much of taxes from the people or business men then where is this money going.....sanctioning the cores of budget from central where is money goes..................we are not seeing any changes........only the leaders pockets are filling up and nothing

i think LBT is very good initiative, but care should be taken while imposing on small trader and entrepreneurs big who use steal the tax by showing low value good at octroi will not spared thats for sure, and it seems it may be only reason why the lobby must be opposing it. Also people who think that LBT, an local body should be setup to curb such illegal practice And trader who thinks it is going to affect thier buisness, so LBT would be disgned in such manner to make it easy for all.

LUMPSUM PAYMENT OF TAX… UPTO RS. 10 LACS TURNOVER… IS IT A TURNOVER TAX ? IN CASE OF SMALL TRADERS/RETAILERS PROFIT MARGIN IS HARDLY 5 TO 7%, HOW A PERSON CAN PAY SAY 2% LUMSUM TAX AS LOCAL BODY TAX? + BEAR THE ADMINISTRATIVE COST FOR THE SAME.. 3. ORGANISATIONAL LIMITATION…. GENERALLY SMALL TRADERS ARE SELF EMPLOYEED ENTREPRENEURS WITH A MINIMUM HELPING HAND WHILE DOING BUSINESS. EVEN NORMAL ACCOUNTING IS NOT FEASIBLE FOR THEM. HOW THESE TRADERS WILL PROVIDE AND PROVE THEIR INNOCENCE IN LBT RAJ? 4. THE VERY PURPOSE OF OCTORI REMOVAL WAS SEAMLESS TRANSITION OF GOODS FROM ONE DESTINATION TO OTHER AND SAVINGS OF VITAL FUEL COST IN THE COMPETITIVE EDGE. WHETHER THIS PURPOSE IS SERVED ? 5. ANY BUSINESS PERSON IS WILLING TO PAY LOCAL BODY REASONABLE % OF HIS INCOME. However, he is

I don't understand LBT in details. But being a citizen of my country I would like to ask only a simple question to the govt. We pay cores of rupees as tax may be direct or indirect then why are we still a victim of inflation. Check out the petrol price, it was 42 a liter couple of years back and now.... Water issues still persist... unemployment issue still persist... And when it comes to LBT, it is just another way to suck the blood of common man. To execute one single plan if the sate is sanctioned x amount of money from the centre then the actual amount that is invested for the task is x-50. Sab paisa kha liya jata hai. aab aur mang rahe hai. This needs to stop under any damn circumstances.

when govt. wanted to start VAT, the govt. agreed to loose revenue from octrai. and now as some of corporation kept adding revenue like octrai like Pune, they want to convert it into LBT. But this is the cheeting from the govt with the common man. already we common people are paying INDIRECTLY VAT! so why would paying octrai? and that TAX has taken new concept, is LBT. means for a perticular thing THE COMMON PEOPLE HAS TO PAY THREE TIMES THAN TAX BEFORE VAT. HOW? Lets calculate it. Service tax , when you give any service, altimatly it cuts from COMMON MAN's POCKET, Income tax-if ANY COMMON MAN earning money, THE COMMON MAN HAS TO PAY I.T., NOW THINK ABOUT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OCTRAI AND LBT. We were paying octrai on imported goods in our city, like, if a type of rice came to city, the vender had to pay OCTRAI. and that one n single tax had passed up to THE COMMON MAN. Now for LBT, what will happen? for every single transaction, they will add LBT W

Approcah of the buisness men towards this is highly wrong.Beacause any how tax or octri will be utitilmately at end will be paid by consumer and not by them. But way they are on strike and making hell life of common man is not right. U can see many shops works on back with charging more during this period. Accountability should not be so big issue that they suffering & if they pay loyal tax and keep accountability then their is no question of fine to they. SO buisness men should end their strike and start work. It is fad in India what ever u want just close all shutters. IT is harmfuall for comman man.

Earlier Days Taxes were been collected for infrastructure development, but now a days we have got many people looting our money, example private toll gates. Government will not do any thing for us but we have to pay the government in different ways of tax only to fill the pockets of the dirty politicians. Aam admi gharib hota jara hai, ab gharib ka bare mat poocho ( who to mar raha hai) kisku padi.

Octroi was only charged in maharashtra, nowhere in india. LBT is also charged only in Maharashtra.

Goverment has taken a very good step forward by abolishing Octrio. However it needs to fund local muncipal bodies. now it should go one step further an introduce a simplier system of revenew. and that would be, to increase Vat being charged and pass on the revenue collected to the local Municipals. This would make traders life simple. some people are of the opinion that traders dont whant to pay tax. There might be some but most do not mind. what they are against is the hassles involved and Babu Raj they have to face. i Suggest and increase in vat. This is best option. Everyone is used to it, the system is already in place nothing additional is required to be done for the trader and nor the Govt. kindly do it fast, before things go bad.

There is no denial that govt machinary and adminsitration is corrupt but the trader community is equally or more corrupt, the excuses they are giving of overhead to do self assesment is only to coverup sham regarding golmaal they do (in octroi era), yes a VAT could have covered the LBT portion but then PMC wil have to go back everytime to state to get their fair share and it adds to complexity out there. Aurangabad, Ulhasnagar (bastion of Sindhi traders) Kalyan, Nagpur & Sangli corporations have LBT for over 12-24 months then whats so special of Pune (pls wake up; "peshwai" geli aata, punyachya vyaparyano jara sachoticha dhanda kara, kiti divas puneri bhamte banun rahanaar?) The traders shop licenses should be confiscated and they should be sent to jail for disruption to civil society.

What I understand LBT is nothing but another name of VAT. Why govt is increasing the burden of tax on a common man.

I think ppl r right to protest against LBT. now i kno it is solely for their purpose to hide it from the govt. the revenue tradres earn , however it is indirectly favoring to each and every individual ...coz we will be paying the tax even if we purchase a milk product. so in addition we r alrdy into so much taxes. so y do we ahve to pay additional LBT so dat ministers can earn extra revenue which will directly go down into their SWISS BANK a/c's. ...HELL NOOOO!!!!!

Pune traders r opposing lbt. Because unki hera pheri bhar aayegi. Octroi mein goods lakh rupees ke, dikhane ke thousand. Means tax chori. They r scared because unka pura chitta, kala paisa gov. Ko dikhega. Aur income tax ko bhi.

Word jakat was started by Mohmed Paigamber. As there were no other significant income source in desart. As time changed even mecca and madina are not having jakat today. Only Ethopia and. Jmaharashtra has jakat. Whctiat does it signify? Is maharashtra as poor as african contry like ethopia? Jakat is one of five basic principles of Islam. Even kattar Islam contries not having jakat now. Is maharashtra degraded below that? Is maha. progressing faster than gujrat(no octri)?
