‘Dimapur business community laden with extortion, illegal taxation’
Dimapur, June 26 (EMN): Dimapur the commercial hub of Nagaland has multiple challenges in the field of commerce and business. The problem of extortion, illegal taxation and unfair business practices are eating away our society from within. Considering this, the police, district administration and the district court has initiated some crucial steps so as to control the anti-social elements operating in Dimapur and therefore the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) must take full advantage of the initiatives to maintain cordial atmosphere for the business community.
This was addressed by the DCCI Legal Advisor Hukavi A Zhimo at the inauguration of DCCI office at Naga Shopping Arcade Supermarket in Dimapur on Tue. June 26.
Low quality or substandard goods, Zhimo said are bound to destroy the foundation of commerce. Dimapur being the hub, he maintained that a huge responsibility rests upon DCCI to set examples to the rest of the business community by ensuring quality, fair price business practices and prosperity in all the areas of business.
Also Zhimo urged the DCCI to focus their energy towards sanitation and cleanliness of Dimapur town so as to facilitate clean and healthy environment within the jurisdiction of their organisation.
“It is a disgrace to learn that Dimapur has been declared as the dirtiest city in all of India which I have come across through some sources and I feel that DCCI is capable of undertaking pioneering initiative in collaboration with the govt. agencies under govt. schemes such as Swachh Bharat to transform Dimapur,” Zhimo asserted.
Reminding the DCCI of the high expectations the public have from them, he called on them to initiate steps to ensure that quality is maintained in all the businesses.
DCCI President Akashe K Zhimomi asserted that Dimapur has become a taxation industry while the DCCI continues to negotiate for this menace. DCCI was purely for the business community and without the presence and suggestions of the community DCCI will not progress, said Zhimomi and therefore he appealed the community to continue with their support and their valuable suggestions.
With the office open for five days in a week, Zhimomi welcomed genuine problems to the notice of the DCCI while reminding the business community that DCCI was here for legal business and do not encourage any unwanted business.
