As we all know that any country gets its income mainly from the Taxes, the question here itself suggests that. And the Non Tax revenues are the incomes other than taxes. As our country has a larger agricultural base, that can be developed well to get more revenues other than Taxes.

Tax revenue is the revenue generated from imposing taxes like customs tax, income tax, excise, service tax etc. Whereas non-tax revenue is from interests on loans and dividend on investments.

Tax revenue are compulsory payments and non tax revenue are not compulsory payments but we have to pay to the government in the form of fees and fines.

Basically, the non-tax revenue refers to revenue earned by the Government from its departmental undertakings and its enterprises such as railways and post office.

No, as commercial irrigation projects can earn the government a revenue only through taxes levied on the crop ie a form of TAX REVENUE. The correct answer is thus electricity boards. Electricity generation is a form of non-tax revenue earned by the government for rendering a productive service ie electricity.

@ Natasha.

I agree with you. The Answer should be option 1 and 2. The State can earn revenue as profits by improving administration and efficiency of public sector undertakings.
