Exempt rent for shops in govt complexes: CNCCI

DIMAPUR, AUG 18 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/18/2020 12:56:44 PM IST

 Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI) has demanded that all shops and business establishments in government-owned properties, including in government-funded agency properties like marketing complexes in various towns, should be exempted from paying rent for a minimum period of three months. 

Further appealing to the State government to give more human touch in its policies and approach as COVID-19 pandemic had become a humanitarian crisis beyond comprehension, the trade body reminded the government of its April 24 April, 2020 appeal letter to chief minister seeking shop rent exemption.

CNCCI hoped that the government would take immediate action as a matter of urgency on genuine appeal made by the business community. 

Meanwhile, empathising with the business community of Dimapur, especially the business community of New Market, Hazi Park and Hongkong Market that had been shut for almost five months now, CNCCI said though the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) had appealed to the State government to open them, the government was yet to respond.

CNCCI pointed out to the government that thousands of business establishments in these markets were on the verge of collapse as no business could survive months of continuous closure. 

Announcing its full support to DCCI, CNCCI demanded that the government should immediately meet the DCCI’s demand and allow these markets to start functioning by empowering the Dimapur District Task Force to work out modalities to open them as per standard operating procedure (SOP) of the government.

This was stated in a press release issued by its chairman Dr Khekugha Muru and general secretary Dr Seyievilie Mor.
