 Mokokchung Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) on Wednesday claimed that it has apprehended eight non-Nagas with “dubious identities” for duping the general public by selling substandard merchandise holding “temporary permit” issued by the Mokokchung Municipal Council (MMC). 

They were identified as Fakira Khan (44), Ansar Ahmed (40), Jevan Singh (22), Said Malik (44), Akiel Ahmed (38), Rajuddin Khan (37), Chhote Singh (63) and Jabbar Khan (44). 
In a press statement, MCCI president, Tsukti Longkumer and general secretary Limalenden Longkumer claimed that they were also found selling products other than those permissible as per the MMC temporary permit norms. 
Mokokchung Chamber of Commerce and Industry also said that ILPs possessed by these persons mentioned that their “purpose of visit” to Mokokchung was for “labour” whereas they were carrying out “guerilla business” with the temporary permits thereby evading all statutory fees and taxes. 
Of the eight persons, two of them did not possess any MMC permit while one of them possessed ILP issued by Dimapur district administration, but had not registered with the Mokokchung police, MCCI claimed. 
The particulars of the ILP issued at Dimapur also did not mention the date of issue which is again a serious breach of conduct. In the light, of the above, MCCI demanded that the temporary permits of the six dubious persons should be cancelled immediately as per the provision of MMC guideline. 
MCCI also demanded that all eight of them should be barred from operating any “temporary” business in Mokokchung.  
Further, stating that “temporary permit” was self-explanatory, the MCCI stated that a permit needed to be renewed should no longer fall under the “temporary” category in any case and that every temporary permit required renewal should be issued as regular trade permit.
