Faridabad Chamber of Commerce and Industries raised the demand, said when illegal colonies can be regular then why not the industry.
Dr. HK Batra, President, Faridabad Chamber of Commerce and Industries (FCCI) said that about 16,000 industrial units are operating in the non-conforming area of Faridabad. Here people and youth have got employment. In such a situation, there is a demand from the government to regularize the non-conforming areas and provide them all the necessary facilities.
They say that when the government is giving regular tax facilities to illegal colonies, then why discriminate against the industry. Whereas the industry is running with 18 types of licenses from the government. Along with giving tax to the government, it is also giving employment to lakhs of people. He was talking to reporters at Gymkhana Club, Sector 15. FCCI General Secretary Rohit, DLF Industry Association President JP Malhotra, Ramesh Jhawar, TC Dhawan were present in the press conference.
He said that today the industry is facing many problems. There is not enough electricity. Haryana State Pollution Control Board does not allow generators to run, PNG rates are getting expensive. All this is affecting the industries. Soon, the matter will be placed before the Central Government regarding this matter. Dr. Batra told that a new governing body of his association has been formed. Together, everyone will try to take the problems of the industries to the possible forum and get them resolved.
Government should refrain from imposing GST on the hospital industry
Batra said the hospital is involved in emergency services. In such a situation, the central government should keep it out of the purview of GST. Because patients of all classes come here. If GST is imposed, then its burden will fall on the general public. He said that soon FCCI will write to the Central Government, Ministry of Finance and GST Council requesting them not to levy tax.
Preparation to impose heavy penalty on electricity department
JP Malhotra, president of DLF Industries Association, said that the problems arising after the implementation of GRAP were placed before the chairman of Haryana State Pollution Control Board, P Raghavendra Rao. He has talked about taking strict steps on the electricity department. Malhotra said that soon a meeting is going to be held with the officers of both the departments. After this, if the power supply is not available for 23 and a half hours, then provision will be made to impose heavy penalty on the electricity department. He also told that the contribution of industry in increasing pollution is only two per cent. But first of all the ban is imposed on it. This is not right.
