Clarify stand on multiple taxation: CNCCI to govt

Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI) has demanded that the government must immediately clarify its stand on various taxes imposed by Naga political groups (NPGs) and make public what action and steps it had taken to protect the business community and public over the years.
CNCCI in a press release said it had already made its position clear to the government that enough of unjustified taxation had made Nagaland most unfriendly business destination and environment in the entire country. It said that innovating and scheming to extract money and exploit the business community and consumers by coining different taxation names by various NPGs in the name of taxation as legitimate rights for Naga national movement had become a full-time job, staining and denting the most noble and honourable movement of Naga people.
CNCCI noted that, today, the age-old taxes like house tax, ration tax, yearly tax, godown tax, transport tax, item tax etc. could not quench the thirst and greed of many leaders of the Naga National movement.
Mentioning that never in their imagination the business community and public thought that the NPGs and their leaders would stoop so low to come up with mistiri tax and jugali tax, which it said was “an incomprehensible embarrassment to Naga national movement”, CNCCI questioned their justification, other than selfishness and greed to keep minting money.
Expressing its full solidarity with the furniture business community and EDBA, it urged NPGs and their leaders involved in collecting such disgraceful taxation in the name of Naga movement to reason and speak to their conscience and immediately do away with such taxation.
