Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday spared the common man from price hikes by keeping duties on commonly used day-to-day items unchanged but made it costlier for smokers and tobacco consumers with a steep increase in excise rate in tax proposals in Budget 2014-15.


Following is a list of what will be expensive:

  •     Cigarettes
  •     Aerated drinks with sugar
  •     Pan masala
  •     Gutka and chewing tobacco
  •     Jarda scented tobacco
  •     Radio Taxi
  •     Imported electronic products
  •     Portable X-ray machines
  •     Half cut/broken diamonds.
