JAMMU: Concerned over shifting of business to neighboring states due to exploitation of various loopholes in J&K trade scenario especially continuation of toll tax on goods, a delegation of Chamber of Traders Federation (CTF) led by its President, Neeraj Anand met Commissioner Commercial Taxes, M. Raju.
Anand apprised the Commissioner of various problems being faced by the dealers of J and K besides explained to him how common people are paying a higher price than rest of India. “Continuation of toll tax on goods in Jammu and Kashmir has grossly affected the genuine traders , the impact is more especially being felt across all items of mass use in construction activity like cement, electrical goods, sanitary goods and plywoods,” said Anand. Citing the increase in price of a few items on account of toll tax further hiked in the last Budget, he brought forth the huge price difference between the landing price for a local dealer and what is being offered by ‘resourceful’ dealers from the neighboring state.
Anand apprehended that in all probability the resultant effect shall also be found in the loss of revenue to the exchequer. Expressing anguish at the casual approach of the elected ruling dispensation who were approached umpteen number of times, Anand sought the good offices of the highly rated GST Commissioner to take up the issue with the Governor, N.N Vohra for the favorable and sympathetic decision in the matter. The delegation comprised of Attar Singh, Vinodh Sachdeva , Kailash Nath Nagr, Balwinder Singh, Parag Abrol, Dinesh Gupta and Raman Gupta.
