All Nagaland Industrial Entrepreneurs Federation (ANIEF) responds to resignation demand; convenes meeting

Responding to the demand of Central Transport Subsidy Scheme (CTSS) and Central Capital Investment Subsidy Scheme (CCISS) beneficiaries and district representatives under the department of Industry & Commerce demand for resignation of All Nagaland Industrial Entrepreneurs Federation (ANIEF) office bearers, ANIEF said the demand for resignation of the present office bearers by a “few proprietors of SSI unit were indeed mischievous, unwarranted and uncalled”.
In a press release, ANIEF president, Povotso Lohe and general secretary, Orenbomo Humtsoe explained that the federation has been pursing for claims of CTS and CCIS under pending cases in respect of Nagaland state for the period 2007, 2008 and 2009 under the Ministry of Commerce & Industry (department of Industrial Policy & Promotion) government of India.
In this regard, ANIEF said an action committee was constituted in November 2014 and members of the committee undertook at least 15 trips to New Delhi for pursual of the matter during 2015-2017, without success from 2011 till date. ANIEF said successive chief ministers of the state including the current chief minister along with the state department of Industries & Commerce have put in “lots of efforts”, however, all these “sincere efforts fell on deaf ear of the MoC&I.
The federation said that selected entrepreneurs under the schemes have been facing great financial hardships to run their industrial units while a good number of the units have been closed.
Therefore, ANIEF said demanding the resignation of the present office bearers by a “few proprietors of SSI unit were indeed mischievous, unwarranted and uncalled for due to the fact the incumbent office bearers have been struggling making run from pillar to post for this unaccomplished task all these years”.
Meanwhile, ANIEF executive body has convened general meeting on May 25, 11 a.m. at the Conference Hall of the State Red Cross Complex, PR Hill Kohima for election of new office bearers for the next term. All ANIEF office bearers, action committee members, district representatives, all selected entrepreneurs under pending cases and proprietors of SSI units from all over the state have been requested to attend the meeting.
