In Firozabad, the GST department is running a vigorous raid campaign in the matter of tax evasion, due to which the traders are very scared. On the call of Mukund Mishra, the provincial president of the UP-Industry Trade Board, the trade board officials took out a procession from Gandhi Park at ten in the morning and reached the residence of Sadar MLA Manish Asija in Arya Nagar. Along with gheraoing the MLA, a memorandum addressed to the Chief Minister was also handed over to the MLA. During this, traders demanded to stop the harassment of traders in the name of GST.
Ambesh Kumar Sharma, Metropolitan President of the Board of Trade, said, “Traders are being harassed in the name of the GST survey and are being intimidated. Due to this, there is a lot of anger among the traders. They have demanded that whenever GST action is taken, the business leaders should also be informed to maintain transparency”.
The GST team again reached Shikohabad on Saturday, but Jasrana's market was closed due to fear of action. The team caught tax evasion in three firms in Shikohabad. The traders deposited the tax along with the fine on the spot.
