Submission + - Indian ISPs Taxed for Generating "Light Energy

CaptKeen writes: The Hindu reports that the Indian Government is trying to tax optical broadband providers (think fiber to the premises) for generating "light energy". According to the Commercial Tax Department, optical broadband providers operate on light energy which is "artifically created and sold to customers for the purpose of data transmission and information." This classification would make Internet access goods (since you are buying light) as opposed to service — and would be subject to a 12.5% VAT.
