    As per my knowledge VAT was @ 12% already (As I remember this was reduced to 12% from 15% before 1 years back) except for Financial service & luxury items. That also reduced to 12% from 1st of January 2011. So which change is he referring?

    please tell us, which items will go cheap after this and what would be the expected price reduction. That is what is important to the public.

    Nimal Wednesday, 09 March 2011 10:45 AM

    Good move! Hope the govt. will not introduce it in some other form. Now, this relief should be directly passed on to the consumer.
