I noticed that you posted this question several times and nobody has answered it. That is probably due to the fact that we are not familiar with VAT.

I will give it a shot.
list price by manufacturer = Rs 240
wholesaler gets 25% discount, so he pays
Rs 180
question: does VAT get added here ?
if so, there would be tax paid on tax already added at the end.

without VAT added at this stage, the retailer discounts the RS 180 by 15% , thus list price by retailer is .85(180) = RS 153

This makes no sense to me.
Where does the wholesaler make his profit?
Isn't he taking a loss ???

I think this question needs more clarification.
