Tsering further explained that since the clothes sold in the Tibetan market are manufactured keeping in mind the climatic conditions up north east, the same clothing if brought from any other market would be sold at a price fourfold its original price. And this is where the Tibetan market comes into the picture and sells the same stuff at marginal rates.
Taking into consideration the mass appeal these clothes have, the Punjab government has always walked an extra mile for the betterment of the community by giving them tax rebates of up to three per cent. The government also boosts up their sales by handing out orders to them to be made at various factories located in Ludhiana, Amritsar and Jallandhar.
The Haryana government, on the other hand does not give them any tax rebate but gives complete moral support by leasing out government owned lands at marginal prices. The rent paid by the market association is a meagre Rs. 30 per day. The Haryana government also protects their interest by keeping at bay local merchandisers who constantly file complaints against them regarding taxation issues and permit issues.
