In the Budget 2014, a chunk of money has been allocated to reimbursing the public who have been into construction works. The purpose is to promote the construction of houses or flats. The Mauritius Revenue Authority has taken upon itself to repay all those who have been constructing their houses. The latter will be paid back the TVA. An amount of Rs 300 000 has been fixed, which will be paid in full or in parts of Rs 25 000.
