In a move to create an industry friendly atmosphere around Lakhanpur check post, where the trucks loaded with goods are detained “without any valid reasons” by the tax department, the industries body met state finance minister, Haseeb Darbu and industries minister Chander Parkash to apprise them about the problems created by commercial tax department.
The Federation of Industries Jammu (FOIJ) has requested the state to issue necessary instructions to the concerned officials of Commercial Tax Department to create an industrial friendly atmosphere at Lakhanpur check post to “regain the confidence of the industrial fraternity”.
“Arrogant behaviour of the ETOs which creates an uncertainty and fear in the mind of the industrial fraternity of the state was discussed in the meeting,” the industries body said.
The body demanded that the officials responsible for harassing the industrial units should be taken to task so that the negative and arrogant attitude of the officers responsible should not be allowed to hamper the industrial growth.
