GST in Kautilya's Arthashastra, Manu forefather of globalisation?

What Was the Nature of GST in Kautilya's Arthashastra?

What Was the Nature of GST in Kautilya's Arthashastra?

What baffled students, is not only that the questions were out of syllabus but correlating the two thinkers with the present day examples was out of context for many. "Discuss." Each of the questions carried 15 marks. This question is troubling students of the Banaras Hindu University's political science department, for the marks they will score in the ongoing M.A.

Manu is the first Indian thinker of globalisation.

When contacted by The Indian Express, Professor Kaushal Kishore Mishra, who set the question paper, said that he had "interpreted the two thinkers and taught their philosophies through new and current examples like GST and globalisation ..." So what if these are not in the textbook? "Isn't it our job to find newer ways to teach?"

Mishra, a professor of Indian political system and Indian political thought at BHU's Faculty of Social Sciences, admitted that he is an RSS member, but added that his personal beliefs have nothing to do with what he teaches his students. But in an exam that tests the knowledge of students in the areas taught, such questions have no place. The students said though the topics were not part of their course, they could not raise the matter with the teachers, fearing they will be targeted for the rest of the year, reported the Indian Express.

So her comments today should be taken in that context. "If she's got something to say, she should say it unambiguously and clearly".

Students who attempted the question paper have met some of their professors, seeking informed answers to these questions. With confusion still shrouded, all eyes are now set on what steps the authority will take in this regard.

"Kautilya's Arthashastra is the first Indian book which hints at the current concept of GST".

"The concept of the GST primarily says that consumer gains the most", he said. "Kautilya is one such thinker who propounded national economic integration - ekikaran - in fact, Kautilya had specified in his time that taxes on house construction be 20%, gold and other metals 20%, border tax 20%, gardens 5% singers, dancers and artistes 50%", Mishra told the Indian Express.

Mishra told his students that Manu was the first thinker to introduce globalisation and that even Nietzsche had lauded Manu's economic, political and religious principles. "Manu's thoughts spread the world over, and were adopted by countries. No teacher sets a paper out of his area of expertise and what he has taught", he said. An outraged BHU student slammed the college administration for "ridiculous and unpalatable questions" in the paper and said they are taught about the fictitious subjects like just to "validate" the government policies.
