Shops and business establishments in and around Hongkong marker Dimapur resorted to a lighting closure for 30 minutes Wednesday at 11 a.m. in protest against alleged harassment by some GBs and members of the Dimapur Consumer Society along with police. According to sources, the shopkeepers in and around Hongkong market had reacted angrily to the demand made by some GBs, members of Dimapur Consumer Society along with police personnel for original cash memos. One shopkeeper told this Reporter that they themselves do not keep cash memos while another said many don’t use cash memos as most of the products were either bought from wholesalers in Myanmar or Nepal. They admitted that shops do not use cash memos but receipt in some printed formats. One shopkeeper dealing in goods from Myanmar said they did not possess any bills. Following complaint by the shopkeepers the district administration gave assurances to look into the matter after which shops reopened. It may be noted that businessmen dealing with imported goods and products are normally smuggled from Myanmar and Nepal. The goods are not reflected as tax items under the government. Even customers do not get either warranty or guaranty of the imported items unlike goods coming from other parts of the country.
