‘Undue’ tax collection by RMCs opposed

Tuesday, 20 August 2019 | PNS | BRAHMAPUR

The Odisha Traders’ Federation has threatened to take to the streets against the collection of “undue” taxes by the State Government through the Regulated Marketing Committees (RMCs).

Addressing a Press meet here on Sunday, federation members alleged that the Government is collecting undue taxes through RMCs and is not paying any heed to their requests.

The traders too opposed the different percentage of rebates being given by large companies to shopping malls and small traders.

While the companies are giving 40 to 50 per cent rebate to big shopping malls, they are providing only 16 per cent to general traders.

“If the large companies don’t do away with rebate discrepancies, we will not allow their products to enter Odisha market,” threatened Federation members.

Besides, they urged both the State and Union Governments to resolve GST complexities at the earliest.

Earlier, federation new president Ch Rabindra Nath, general secretary Sudhakar Panda, Ganjam Chamber of Commerce president E Siva Prasad Rao and secretary V Santosh Kumar were greeted, among 12 persons, at a special programme held by the Ganjam Chamber of Commerce.

Among others, two former presidents of Chamber of Commerce, K Siva Prasad Subudhi and VVRN Rao, were present.
