I think you mean "a constant state of being incessantly taxed, at times even resulting in irrational, criminal behaviour by the victim.

Let me try to find out more about these PIL's and how one can go about it.

Why do they need more money? What are these traitors doing with existing loot? All the tax+levies+octroi etc money collected is misued by netas and babus in utterly useless 'social projects' and 'schemes'.

As Indians we pay some of the highest taxes for everything and yet have to live in near slum like conditions. Pathetic.

India needs a true conservative movement. Someone with vision to plan and implement a leaner, meaner, less hungry government and more individual and business friendly policies.

If Gandhi were alive today, he would start a nationwide protest against our 'elected representatives'.

I guess it will be a few days while they decide on this. Once they have decided to levy 8% cess on price of the car, then it will be a matter of few days as they will need to create some kind of mechanism or process to collect the cess from the dealers.

Also, they have not said whether this is applicable to sale of used cars. If it is, then it will create another channel to create black money. People will declare a lower sale price and take the remainder as black.

I dont think it would affect used cars since that involves only transfer ownership. Do we rellay pay any tax/duty for transfers as well?

In Gurgaon I am now paying VAT of about 12% on the outstanding principal loan value for chaning the car ownership in my name from a company lease due to change in employment. I would assume this is applicable for all transfers where ownership changes and not only because in my case its a company lease, but I may be wrong.
