In regular times, the King should not upsurge capital punishment, land tax and other taxes and by taking taxes from holy places. However, for the defence budget (punishing or bargaining with the enemy countries), the king should take money from people as special grants, fines or additional taxes.

Shukraneeti, Chapter 5, Kosha Nirupan, 9, 10)

In normal days, the country should not increase the taxes on the people. However, there should be provision for the defence budget and for the proper defence budget; the country should be ready for levying taxes on its citizens by taking them into confidence. In old days, the king was least bothered for social causes. However, these days the state has to spend a sizable amount of money on public utilities. Therefore, there is a requirement of revenue through taxes. However, the government should always take people into confidence in increasing the particular types of taxes.
