Scores of car dealers raised slogans of justice demanding exemption from double taxation of their vehicles.

Aijaz Shahdar President Kashmir Trade Alliance said, “The authorities must revoke this arbitrary order as this is total injustice with the vehicle owners and also with the dealers as they now have to pay the tax amount twice at the rate of 9 percent.”

Protesters said that only nominal rates should be charged for the vehicles bought from outside for re-registration.

Another protestor said that the taxes of vehicles exported to the valley from outside the states have already been paid, and they have to go through the initial stages again during their re-registration.
