After alcohol, Biharis have to give up luxury items, as these attract 13.5 tax from now on. Nithish Kumar, who imposed this new tax on the people of Bihar, said that the revenue would be used for development works. What is more interesting is the items that come under 'luxury' category. They include, other than all cosmetics, samosas, kachoris, mosquitoe repellants and the more ubiquitous hail oil.
