Kohima Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCCI) has decided to close all shops and business establishments in the state capital on March 31 from 6 a.m to 6 p.m to register protest against several grievances faced by the trading community as a whole. According to KCCI general secretary K.Chris Kire, the business community are protesting against; rampant extortion/collection of taxes; intimidation to its members by some groups and organizations, prevailing system of token/coupon imposed on all essential commodities by the Kohima Municipal Council, failure of the district administration to check mushrooming of a number of illegal check posts collecting illegal taxes between Dimapur and Kohima and the indifferent attitude of the district administration in handling various issues confronting the business community for the past three years. The KCCI has also informed that private public transport services such as mini bus and heavy vehicle goods carriers etc would also be off road. It however exempted pharmacies, movement of pedestrians and vehicular traffic. KCCI appealed all its members to co-operate besides requesting public at large to bear with it by extending their support. KCCI also said the Nagaland First Class Contractors Union, Kohima Village Council, Kohima Truck Drivers Union, All Nagaland Taxi Association and All Minibus Owners Association of Kohima have also extended support on the issue.
