DIMAPUR, JUN 26 (NPN) | Publish Date: 6/26/2019 11:43:33 AM IST

Following strong objection and criticism of its general meeting resolution by student bodies, the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) has reassured all that the resolution was adopted “in the interest of the consumer and general public and not as alleged.”

DCCI through its media affairs termed as “unfortunate” that the resolution has been “highly misinterpreted.” DCCI said it was perplexed that some leaders leading intellectual body were misleading the public and not being able to differentiate between the word “check” and “raid”. 

DCCI clarified that at no point had it resolved against “Checking of tampered MRP, expiry goods”. DCCI said its resolution was against “raids” carried out by individuals and organizations without the presence of competent authority, authorized individuals and agencies. DCCI said it wondered as to what wrong it has done by resolving to abide by the law of the land.

It also claimed that many individuals and organizations in Dimapur have been on “raiding spree” without the presence of competent authority and also “indiscreetly” impose fine instead of reporting it to the appropriate authority which led to it becoming a “a semi industry.” DCCI said such “illegal activism” emboldened some of the business enterprises to buy their way out from such unscrupulous people. 

DCCI said it wanted to stop such practices of “underhand exchange” and encourage raids in the presence of appropriate authority so that such shops and business establishment were exposed publicly with appropriate action taken. However, DCCI lamented that certain section of people were adamant against raids without the presence of competent authority. 

On the resolutions against donations and sale of tickets and lottery, DCCI reminded that it was not just its resolution but a standing district administration order banning such activities.

DCCI clarified that escalation of rates was directly co-related to such unsolicited activities and so it was the wish of the business community to protect the consumers with fair price. DCCI said it was not opposed to any voluntary contribution by anybody but was against forced donations. Further, DCCI informed consumers that there was a separate Public Grievances Cell to address their grievances and requested them not to hesitate to lodge their complaints. 

DCCI also appealed to the GBs and colony councils to be vigilant on illegal immigrants setting up business establishment without a proper trade license. It also appealed to DMC and colony councils to make NRC and NoC as main documents for issuing trade license to people hailing from Assam by taking extra effort to re-verify such trade licenses.

Meanwhile, DCCI has appealed to the student community not to misread the DCCI intentions, which were in the interest of students, parents, consumers and public. DCCI said it believe that no issue was too big to be resolved “if we all patiently with mutual respect sit over and thrash out the issues.”
