DCCI reiterates objection to syndicate system
DIMAPUR — While advocating healthy competition among the business community, Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) has reiterated its objection to syndicate system claiming that such practices is corrupting the whole business community especially the educated unemployed youth.
The issue was raised during a general meeting convened by DCCI along with its affiliated members held at Hotel Saramati in Dimapur on January 27. An update from DCCI informed that all the unions and welfare committee members associated with DCCI attended the meeting and shared their grievances.
The house was of the opinion that there should be a healthy competition in the business environment and not that of a syndicate system, which is corrupting the whole business community, mostly affecting educated unemployed youth. In the meeting, all the speakers also discussed multiple taxations.
DCCI lamented that it has not received any positive response either from the district administration nor state government despite highlighting the issues of multiple taxations on several occasions.
In this regard, DCCI has sought support from the Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI) in any follow-up action.
“Doing illegal businesses will not be supported and action shall be taken even if those running illegal businesses are bona-fide members of DCCI,” DCCI cautioned.
DCCI further informed that it would not entertain MRP checking by any organisations except by the concerned authority of the state government.
It stated that the members have reassured continuous support to the DCCI in its endeavours.
In his presidential address, Akashe Zhimomi highlighted the achievements and works done by DCCI in the past years.
The meeting was chaired by Omega Yepthomi, convenor of grievances cell, and concluded with a vote of thanks delivered by DCCI vice president, V Shikuto Sema.
