The Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industries (CNCCI) has decided to support and join the one-day Bharat vyapar bandh called by the Confederation of All India Traders on February 26.

CNCCI chairman Dr Khekugha Meru and general secretary Dr Seyievilie Mor, in a release, said all business establishments in the State will down their shutters from 6 am to 4 pm on the day in support of the strike.

They said the bandh will be limited only to commercial business activities and all other activities will not come under its purview or other activities will continue as usual.

The organisation said the bandh has been necessitated as the existing goods and services tax (GST) regime all over India has become too difficult for the business community to comply unless it is simplified.

Appealing to the consumers to bear with the inconveniences and stand in solidarity with the business community, it directed all its units in the districts to enforce the bandh in their respective districts.

More than 40,000 business organisations across India are geared up to succeed the Bharat Vyapar Bandh organized by CAIT against the perverted form of GST tax system, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) said.

The traders’ body said preparations have begun and the national leaders of CAIT from all over the country have made schedules for stormy tours in various states.
