“Each day, the AAP government searches new ways and means to tax the common man,” Majithia said, adding that the government has amended the Indian Stamp Act to impose a 0.25% stamp duty on loans sanctioned by the banks as well as loan crediting companies. He said these measures would make vehicles and homes more expensive. He demanded that the unneeded taxation be revoked immediately.
