JCCI seeks relief package, rent waiver for traders

Published

The Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (JCCI) paid rich tributes to the traders as well as people who have lost their precious lives during the pandemic and demanded relief package and rent waiver for the businessmen.
Addressing media persons here today, JCCI president Arun Gupta expressed profound grief and sorrow over the loss of lives of trader fraternity members and general public during the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic.

The Chamber president expressed gratitude to the Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir and the local administration for considering genuine demands of Jammu Chamber for completely unlocking Jammu and restoring normal business activity. He also added that JCCI being the apex body of traders had extended wholehearted support to government of J&K UT in its efforts to contain Corona virus surge on account of prevailing second wave and joined hands with the helmsmen by augmenting relief to the COVID-19 affected by providing free meals, ration to the needy and even arranging oxygen for the needy.

Gupta said that the business community of the region is passing through the worst ever time of their entire life due to extreme financial crunch faced on account of continuous lockdowns and prevailing uncertainty.

The Chamber president appealed the Lt Governor Manoj Sinha to announce the special relief package for the survival and revival of the business community who has suffered a lot during these pandemic times. He also demanded that the hotels and restaurants should be allowed to function atleast with 50% capacity up to 10 PM and increase the number of guests’ capacity at Banquet hall upto 100.

Gupta also appealed to the government to waive off traders rent in view of decline in business activity due to corona curfew imposed on account of second wave of the lethal coronavirus that has wreaked havoc in the entire UT of J&K. He urged the Govt to issue directions to the Jammu Development Authority, JMC , J&K Housing Board, SIDCO and SICOP to take a considerate view and let go off last two month’s rent of shops and other business establishments given on lease to the trader community in various markets and malls in the region during the lockdown period. He further appealed to the government to withdraw all the FIRs registered against traders who were booked for violating the Covid-19 SOPs during the lockdown period.

Senior members Anil Gupta, Rajeev Gupta, Gaurav Gupta, Rajesh Gupta and Rajesh Gupta were also present.

Over time JK Media has raised its voice for PDD/PHE daily wagers, Homeguards, Asha workers, JK Police SPOs to regularize them and continue raising them until all these employees don’t get regularized. Today JK Media Executive Aashish Kholi met a PDD Daily Wager, President Akhil Sharma, and talked about the 11,000 daily wagers, which are yet to be regularized.

While speaking, Akhil said, “I’m thankful that JK Media is raising our demands. My appeal to JK LG Manoj Sinha is that employees were being regularized till 2010 in Kashmir and Doda, while in Poonch till 2005, the employees were regularized. But in Jammu and Kathua, only employees were regularized till 1997, and further, no DPC took place. During the NC regime, an order was passed that all employees till 2010 should be standardized, but the order didn’t get implemented until today. A corporation has been formed, and soon the department will be privatized, so I want the employees who have given 20 years of their profession to the department regularly”.

“We are getting 6750 rupees as our monthly pay. With such a minimal amount, how can we look after our families? If we send our children to some good school, then all our income will only be spent on the school fee. Many of our co-workers have lost their lives or arms and legs, but no senior official has ever enquired about them and their policies. Recently Manoj Sinha announced 10 lakh rupees insurance for the daily wagers, according to which if any daily wager dies on-duty, then their family will get 10 lakh rupees compensation, but the order hasn’t been implemented yet”, he added.

“Director Sir told us to give our exams and wait for results. We are against it! We either demand online exams or mass promotion. When Kashmir students can get promoted without exams, why not us?” said a student

“I’m here to support these students. Their demand is genuine. They had online classes. Third wave is on it’s way and we can’t risk students’ lives. JK Board Authorities must listen to their appeal.” added their supporter

The students claimed the J&K Police to have abused and physically attacked them. They disagreed with the behaviour and said it was against the law and order.

“It’s J&K Police not the goons that attacked us today. I’m still 16 and it’s against the law to hit me. We aren’t terrorists, just small kids demanding something for ourselves. At least don’t hit us.” they said

We have also informed the police officers in the PCR van for round-up they also didn’t take any action. So the police didn’t investigate our cases seriously”, a truck operator said.

The operators demanded that an investigation should take place and the thieves should be arrested immediately.
