Consequent upon the recent directive by the state government abolishing taxes at check gates, the Dimapur District Co-ordination Group (DDCG) members have decided that collection of taxes would not be carried out at the check gates and that there should be only one check post to be manned by Nagaland Police. According to a DIPR report, the excise commissioner who is also a member of DDCG, during the meeting in Dimapur on Tuesday informed that excise gates would be closed down for six months and that checking of excise related matters would be done by Nagaland Police at the Police check post. Besides, the DDCG members also decided to close down MVI check gates and veterinary department check gates. However, two officials from MV department would be deployed at police gate basically for checking documents and issuing necessary challans. It was also decided that the DMC gate presently located in front of police gate would be shifted towards Aluminum factory. The decision to shift the DMC gate was taken as there was a standing order from police department that the police check post should be located at least 400 metres away from the other check gates for security reasons and other such logistic reasons. It was also decided that outer security at the police check post would be provided by the Assam Rifles/CRPF as recommended by the home department. The DDCG members also decided that Dimapur should have proper stock/storage of food sufficient to last for about 1 (one) month in case of any eventuality like that of the recent Chakka Jam called by Assam truckers. In this regard, the deputy chairperson DMC and CEO DMC were entrusted to take suitable measures. The DDCG members appealed the railway authority in Dimapur and Maligaon to provide sufficient back up services in case of eventualities like the Chakka Jam so as to transport stocks from Assam and neighbouring states to Nagaland.
