Certain times waybill/road permit is required for heavy products transferred from one state to another so, if you don't fall under this, consider yourself lucky!! Dispatch of heavy products take more than the expected time: l. Firstly, the fulfillment of your order may require a certain road permit/declaration/inward form to be filled,which can either be downloaded from the respective state's sales tax website or one has to physically go to the nearest sales tax office to procure the above. 2. Also, at times entry taxes as per the Commercial Tax Government rules are levied by the respective state where the goods are shipped (However, it might vary from product to product.) 3. The customer is liable to fill road permit/declaration/inward form and/or pay the entry tax to fulfill the order. 4. The failure of filling the form or not paying the entry tax leads to shipment hold, which eventually may lead to order cancellation & refund. 5. Hence, to have a smooth product dispatch process, form filling and payment of entry taxes wherever required plays a major role.

Tulsi for Brahmacharya – Celibacy –
The spiritual benefits of Tulsi are not without any scientific reason. In ancient times, young child -Bramhachari pupils were given a leaf of Tulsi, each day, in the morning, which would help them follow stringent Brahmacharya.
For those with excessive sexual urge and excessive masturbation habits, it is advisable for them to chew and eat a leaf of Tulsi each day, in the morning, before food. Even a small paste of its root is administered for the same purpose.
Those who cannot get fresh Tulsi leaves, can incorporate Tulsi tea. Taking Tulsi capsule for this purpose can be done, but because it increases Pitta, you will need to talk to your Ayurvedic practitioner before doing so.
Probably for this reason only, Tulsi is not advised for married women, but is given as Prasadam for widows (which would enable them to curb materialistic desires.
