CNTC demands check on trade, transport permits to non-Nagas

DIMAPUR, JUN 1 (NPN): | Publish Date: 6/2/2019 12:00:00 AM IST

Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) has expressed concern over what it described as “unlimited issuance of trade licenses and commercial vehicle permits to non-Nagas” and demanded immediate stop to such practice before Naga youth “run out of opportunities to earn their livelihood through decent ways and means.”

CNTC through its media cell pointed out that many educated unemployed Naga youth were left without any business spaces or opportunities because of “this unlimited issuance of trade licenses and vehicle permits to non-Nagas.”

It has asked the Dimapur Municipal Council and Transport department to issue trade license only after a thorough and a proper scrutiny of individuals. CNTC also suggested that only certain percentage should be allotted to non-Nagas. The council maintained that unlimited issuance of licenses was greatly affecting Naga economy and hampering many of Naga youth who were on the lookout of business pursuits or interests for their daily sustenance.

Further, CNTC demanded to know from the responsible department on the mushrooming of pharmacies all over Dimapur town, which were owned by “persons of doubtful identities.”

Urging the Health department to check the background of those persons, CNTC demanded that under whose name and what qualification were those pharmacist licences issued. “It is found that many persons running these pharmacies don’t have any medical experience or the requisite qualifications,” it stated. CNTC has, therefore, appealed to the authorities concern to immediately act on the spurt of pharmacies all over Dimapur as it deals with the lives of people.

Meanwhile, CNTC has asked colony GBs, chairmen and councils to scrutinize their localities and not to issue No Objection Certificate (NOC) randomly to outsiders for business purposes in their respective localities. It also asked the landlords and house-owners not to randomly let out their premises for economic activities before proper verification.
