Thats' why i said ASK before payment if they have sticker. every NBP Branch with excise counter have stickers available, or they are by law bound to stamp the receipt ' sticker not issued '
They pretend so, they get stickers having serial numbers at the back and the number is punched in computer when tax is paid and receipt printed have that sticker number if procedure is followed correctly. They issue sticker only to those who insist for sticker, people like you accept ' sticker nahi hai ' because JALDI hoti hai ..
Government NEVER forgets the revenue, be it 10 or 25 years, it remains DUE. So better do some effort & pay 1800 a year instead of paying Rs.100 when stopped for checking and feeling embarrassed. on top paying 27000 [ 18000 plus 9000 ] penalty after 10 years ? say what ??
