DIMAPUR, SEP 2 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/2/2020 12:26:47 PM IST

Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) has alleged that with the resumption of normal business activities, there has been rampant increase in taxation and monetary demands.

Pointing put that the business community had undergone immense hardships since the past six months, DCCI president Akashe K Zhimomi urged organisations and groups not to harass and burden the businessmen and traders at the present juncture when they are just trying to start everything from the scratch. He also reiterated the trade body’s strong opposition to the cess on petrol and diesel levied by the State government. 

Maintaining that the business community has so far not hiked prices of goods and essential commodities despite the cess, DCCI warned that the traders would be forced to hike prices as transportation charges have become a heavy burden, if the cess was not lifted. 

The trade body also expressed gratitude to the Dimapur district administration for giving green signal to reopening of Hong Kong Market, New Market, Hazi Park Market and Millennium Building Market. 

It asked the welfare committees of these markets to ensure strict enforcement of the guidelines.

Meanwhile, with the nationwide Unlock 4.0 in process, DCCI reminded safety guidelines to shopkeepers/business houses, customers and public alike.

The trade body said all shops must ensure social distancing, insist on wearing masks (both customers and shopkeepers) and provide hand sanitizers in their respective shops. It also directed all shops not to entertain any customer without a mask.
