Traders harassed by Congress govt's misrule : Goel

·        BJP will simplify and rationalise VAT regime : Goel
·        Traders harassed by Congress govt's misrule : Goel

  The Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel today slammed the Congress government for adopting anti-trader policies in Delhi leading to harassment of the traders, who are the back-bone of city’s economy. He said that the Delhi government is harassing the traders on one or the other pretext.

Addressing the All Delhi Traders Association Conference in the city, Shri Goel said, “The Congress government has ruined the business environment for traders in Delhi. To carry out their trade has become almost impossible in the city.”

Shri Goel further said, “The present VAT regime is so complicated that traders are left at the mercy of tax officials leading to harassment of the traders. The VAT Department of Delhi Government issues several circulars the compliance of which is almost impossible. These VAT rules will be simplified when BJP comes to power in Delhi so that the traders do not fear in filing their taxes.”

Apart from the complicated structure of VAT, the other problem is the way VAT is to be filed. The new online mode of payment has not gone down well with the traders because of the complex procedure. Even small traders   have to bear extra burden by hiring an accountant for filing VAT details. The BJP will simplify and rationalise VAT structure for traders when it comes to power.

Getting refund deposits from the VAT Department is an uphill task as the formalities are very complicated to comply with. As a result, part of capital of the traders remains deposited with the VAT Department for long durations. Further, due to widespread corruption in the rank and file of the Delhi government, the traders find it difficult to do business in the city.

Assuring the traders of all possible help by the BJP, Shri Goel said that the issues of infrastructure and power supply problems, which are among the major problems for the traders of Delhi and which have not been paid attention to by the Congress government will be addressed by the BJP on priority basis when it comes to power.

Shri Goel was speaking at the All Delhi Traders Association Conference organized at the Constitution Club in New Delhi. The meeting was organised by Trade Cell of Delhi BJP and attended by the leaders of the trading community of Delhi.
