Indefinite boycott call given by Sand Stockist and Supplier Union (SSSU), Dimapur, on sand laden trucks plying in Manja route due to “over taxation,” is set to cast a shadow of uncertainty on construction activity in Nagaland. In a statement issued here Monday, the SSSU president Viniho Shohe said that the union has decided to indefinitely stop sand vehicles, plying in Manja route, owing to “over taxation” imposed at Lahorijan gate (Dellai check gate) without issuing receipts. The union said the burden of “over taxation” from various quarters has compelled it to take this action. The rampant taxation, according to SSSU, include Assam Forest, Lahorijan (Rs. 300); Council Gate, Lahorijan (Rs.200); sand union, Lahorijan, (Rs.200); sale tax, Lahorijan (Rs.150); UPDS, Lahorijan (Rs.200); 6th Mile forest, Dellai (Rs.100); Assam police, Dellai (Rs.100 and monthly Rs.1500), Assam police Manja (Rs.100 and monthly Rs.1500) and DHD, Manja (Rs.500 weekly). Meanwhile, the union also stated Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC) has been imposing Rs.200 on sand truck per trip in both Dellai gate and New Field gate, where it has been authorized to collect only Rs. 100 per trip. Stating that it had submitted a complaint with DMC chairperson on the issue, the union said till now there was no response from the responsible authority.
