ITANAGAR | Sept 09 | The GST appreciably launched by PM Narendra Modi regrettably has turned into a bane instead of boon in the constitutionally protected tribal dominated Arunachal Pradesh, IMC Dy. chief councillor Tarh Nachung said.
Moving an economic resolution during capital district City BJP unit executive body meeting here today, Nachung, also Arunachal Chamber of Commerce & Industry general secretary,
“No non-indigenous outside Indians are allowed to conduct business in this state but only with power of attorney of an Arunachalee. This has poised a grave problem as PAN card in the name of the firm/individual is mandatory for GST registration. The traders at the advice of the ACCI obtained PAN cards and all banks are accepting such PAN cards except the State Bank of India, the lead bank of all districts and state, has not been accepting PAN cards of power of attorney holders in individual names,” he said.
“Outside traders should hold a lease deep for buildings along with trading license besides a PAN card either in firm or individual name which should be accepted by the SBI. The state Govt should take up this matter with the SBI to facilitate registration of traders with GST to enrich the state and national exchequers. This would alone help GST registration smoothly”, he said to the applause of the gathering including UD, TP, PWD Parliamentary Secretary-cum-local MLA Techi Kaso.
Many central sponsored schemes need to be up at grassroots level in the greater welfare of the masses, Kaso said and exhorted the party cadres to take up any assignment given by the party. He urged party workers and councillors to take up Swachh Bharat Abhiyan with sincerity.
Pointing out that everyone needs a shelter, City president Tarh Soping exhorted all to contribute to Ajiban Sahayog Nidhi Fund.
Hinting at complexity in GST registration and other unsolved issues of traders, Soping called for moving the GoAP to find solution along with the APCC resolution. Borum ZPM Techi Tolu moved political resolution and both resolution were passed.
