Well I perfectly agree with Dinesh.
Normal plight of any budding Entrepreneur is to handle all the various
level of taxation rather then focusing on building the business
(Service Tax, VAT, Professional Tax,Fringe Benefit Tax,Inter state
taxes, this list is endless, they are trying to duplicate US Taxation,
without providing the freedom to compete any business or infrastructure
as US does.)
No wonder why we have players who manipulate the system, India is not a
good place for startups :), since Indian Govt. has very little or I
would say nothing to offer the startups to grow.

Very luckily we did have relatively much greater freedom than the
soviets and chinese, which is why many good techies are able to do
well now (unlike the soviet techies selling watermelons or working
for the mafia).
My point exactly. The system is supposed to help small companies
and prosper while our system just hampers it... May be
I am talking
crazy. Indian system wasn't ever meant to allow companies to grow
big businesses, make lots of profit, drive the
people jobs, money which inturn drives the economy.
May be India
supposed to remain the way it was. Pathetic small
kingdoms at each
