  2. My wife joined in Meghalaya Central Government school in the month of
    November. She has paid Rs. 210 for every month as a professional tax.
    but after 3 months later school administration is deducting Rs.1030 as
    a professional tax for the month of February.
    I would like to know that this is fair deduction of professional tax
    or not because it is everywhere is mention in various sites that every
    employees have to pay Rs. 208 for every single month.

    kindly short out my problem.
