Akhilesh Cabinet to meet today take imp decisions

Lucknow, December 20
In what could be the last cabinet meeting of the Akhilesh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh state cabinet ministers would be meeting here tomorrow morning to deliberate on some important issues, including reduction of VAT on e-rickshaws.
In the meeting to be held at 1000 hrs before the start of the farewell Assembly session tomorrow morning, the Samajwadi party is slated to reduce the VAT on e-rickshaws from 12.5 per cent to 4 per cent.
Official sources here today said that the move will boost self employment among the youths as the prices of e-rickshaws would decrease by around Rs 5000 per unit. However, due to the decision, the government would loose an annual revenue of Rs 115 crore.
Other decisions to be taken up for considerations are cashless medical treatment of the state employees and making Bollywood film Jolly LLB-2 starring Akshay Kumar, which had been shot in Lucknow, tax free.
The poll dates for UP elections are expected any day after December 23, hence this could be the last cabinet meeting of this government.
