Abstract: Taxation policies in India have historically not been environmentally oriented. A tax system is needed whic is environmentally more rational. It is argued in this study that India is currently going through a major reform of indirect taxes aimed at ushering in a comprehensive regime of taxation of goods and services by April 1, 2010 and this is the appropriate time to make the entire tax regime environmentally rational. [MONOGRAPH 9/2010].
