DIMAPUR: The Nagaland Government urged the apex business body Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CNCCI) to reconsider its call for a State-wide closure of all the shops and business establishments on September 16.
The state government appealed the apex body to support the Government departments for tackling the menace of illegal taxation/extortion.
CNCCI has called for closure alleging that the state government has failed to stop multiple illegal taxation from Naga Political Groups (NPGs). The body has threatened to intensify agitation if the government fails to take action.
The state government also stated the collection of any kind of tax/fees on items/goods that comes under the GST regime shall be immediately stopped by all the Municipalities and Town Councils across the State. Any other Government Department/agency, which may be collecting tax on any items falling under GST regime shall also give directions for immediately stopping such collections.
