Ludhiana, July 30, 2013: Minister for Industry and Technical Education, Punjab Anil Joshi has asked the traders not to come into the trap of organisations like Beopar Mandal because these orgaisations’ motive was to puzzle the issues and not to resolve them.
 
Addressing the functions organised by Federation of Auto Parts Manufacturers and apparel traders here on Monday, he added the Congress was trying to misled people on the issue of property tax whereas the fact was that property tax was even lower than the house tax.
He said the state government was committed for resolving all problems of the traders and the industry on priority basis. He said the tax system was being computerised with a view to simply the tax system and also to eliminate Inspector Raj from Punjab. He alleged that the Centre was providing tax holidays in the neighbouring states such as J&K, Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal by ignoring Punjab. As a result, the industry had to face challenges in Punjab, he said.
Joshi said auto parts research center in Ludhiana would be expanded further, adding a new focal point in a land measuring 2,500 acres would be set up on Ludhiana-Rahon road. He asked the traders to extend their support to the state government in further improving the existing system, so that traders should not face any kind of difficulty while doing their trade.
Among others, the federation of auto parts manufacturers association president Surinder Singh Ryait and others including Avtar Singh Hit, Ajmer Singh Bhagpur and Rajnish Ahuja were present.
