Punjab government is mulling imposing a tax of PKR 510 or 590 on every household for the removal of garbage, this is a wonderful idea. “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. I fully support this plan but I feel amount suggested for this noble task is too little and an insult to cleanliness, it should be raised to PKR. 1500 to 2500 at least. Even after this deduction a normal person earning PKR. 15000 will be left with lot of money to survive honourably.
