Nov 22, 2011 (LBO) - Sri Lanka has raised a levy on international calls with each outgoing minute charged 3 rupees from the current 2 rupees, a budget for 2012 presented to parliament said.
Incoming calls will be charged 9 US cents per minute, up from the current rates of 7 US cents.

The state expects to raise 2.0 billion rupees from the move.

Last year a series of taxes charged on the telephone bills was consolidated to a 20 percent flat tax.

Increasing the charges on calling is bad for business, and good for illegal call terminators.

This will be a good news for politicians behind illegal call terminations. They will have more chances, have high rates. This is a foolish move, when entire world is going towards low cast telecom to improve efficiency. We try to make 2 billion by this.

Isn't this great news. The country's public sector is paid from the remmitances of the poor housemaids and laborers toiling in the Middle East. Now the same people will have to spend more to keep in touch with their families, while the local "ice cubes" sitting in the plush offices and doing nothing will waste money on local calls. miracle of asia !!!
