DIMAPUR — The Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) on Saturday submitted a charter of demands to the government of Nagaland in regard to its indefinite shutter down to protest the unabated multiple taxation, extortion and harassment on the business community by the Naga political groups (NPGs).

In its five-point demand, the DCCI asked the state government to immediately clarify whether taxation by the Naga political groups (NPGs) is legal or illegal, and if the business community should pay GST or tax to the NPGs. “The State Government should reply in black and white,” it stated.

“Summons of business community to NPGs offices, camps and monitoring cells should be immediately declared illegal and law enforcing agencies should be empowered to act on those places,” it demanded.

Raids on so called duplicate products, MRP tempering, expiry checking by NPGs should be immediately declared as illegal and zero tolerance be maintained, it added.

The DCCI further demanded that cases like extortion, kidnapping and waylaying of transport be dealt with swiftly.

Meanwhile, the chairman of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI), Dr. Khekugha Muru, told this newspaper that the indefinite shutter down would continue. However, he said that they would request the owners of petrol stations to open considering the inconveniences caused to the public.
