DCC hits back at Naga Council
Dimapur: Reiterating its earlier statement and in response to the clarification made by the Naga Council Dimapur on tax collection, the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce said that at any cost it would not tolerate tax collection by any NGOs. “Any NGO may make thousands of excuses but it does not mean that the business community has to pay taxation to NGOs which collects tax on pretext of some lame excuses”, DCC president Kasheto Yeptho said.
