Meanwhile, the traders of Delhi are very worried that the business has come to a complete standstill during the lockdown. No announcement has been made by the Delhi government like giving them the benefit of any concession schemes.
Automotive Parts Merchants Association, an association of traders associated with Delhi’s auto parts, has now written a letter to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Through the letter, the head of the institution, Vinay Narang has urged that due to the guidelines issued from time to time by the Delhi government, a great deal of success has been achieved in preventing corona infection in the capital.
Now we hope that this epidemic will be controlled soon. But keeping in mind the interests of the small traders of Delhi and their problems also need to be considered.
Apma’s head Vinay Narang has informed CM Arvind Kejriwal through a letter that the work was already going very slow from the business point of view. But after the lockdown, the work of auto parts is completely over.
The business class also does not get any kind of financial help from the government. Traders are going ahead with their old deposits only. At the same time, salaries are being paid to the employees from the old deposited capital.
Therefore, the government is urged to provide some such scheme for such business class so that small traders can start their business smoothly after the lockdown. In this regard, along with some important problems on behalf of the institution, the demands have also been placed before the Chief Minister of Delhi.
The organization raised these demands:-
Small traders should get loans from banks at easy rates and interest on loans taken from banks should be waived.
A request should be made to the Central Government on behalf of the Delhi Government that the interest on the loan should be waived and the banks subordinate to the Center can be instructed in this regard by the Ministry of Finance.
Fixed charges in electricity bills should be waived during the lockdown.
The Delhi government, in consultation with the Central Government, should extend the dates for filing returns under Income Tax and GST for at least 2 months so that after the lockdown, the traders who want to file returns. , will be able to do it easily.
In the upcoming GST Council meeting to be held on May 28, the Delhi Government should send a proposal to the Central Government to revise the GST rate of 28 percent on auto parts and keep it in the low rate category.
Pradhan Vinay Narang has expressed hope that the Chief Minister of Delhi, taking positive steps on these problems of the traders, will issue guidelines to start such concessional scheme soon. So that auto parts traders will be able to help in running the business smoothly.
