Association of Small & Tiny Industries highlights their problems

Association of Small and Tiny Industries has expressed their very serious concern with regard to various problems being faced by them. In a press conference held today at Press Club Jammu, Harbinder Singh, president of the association said that Industrial Units within Jammu province are facing various problems and present coalition Government of BJP-PDP has failed to address their genuine grievances. He said Small and Micro Industrial Units are facing threat of survival due to the non implementation of Industrial polities framed by Government from time to time. Quoting an example of J&K Medical Suppliers Corporation Ltd, Singh stated that Managing Director of the Corporation had put certain conditions to the tender documents which can never be fulled by Small & Micro Industrial Units.
He said earlier the Small & Micro Industrial Units were exempted from average annual turnover of crores of rupees and marketing standing three years and were required to produce a certificate from the DIC with regard to existence of the Unit and it being in running condition as on date. “The said condition were easily fulfilled by the Industrial Units but the new conditions can never be fulfilled by the Small and Micro Industrial Unitas as these conditions are beyond their capabilities,” he said. He said that it seems that the said J&K Medical Supplies Corporation Ltd and its Managing Director are adopting a policy of exclusion of Small & Micro Industrial Units so as to give benefits to the Mega Industries and Black Listed Companies in order to reap personal benefits.
Singh further expressed that since the formation of the new Government in J&K state, whole of the business is facing a threat of survival because of the policies adopted by the coalition Government.
He warned to take recourse of agitation if their genuine grievances are not addressed at the earliest.
Among others present in the press conference included Capt VK Duggal, chairman, Advocate Ashok Basotra, Legal Advisor, Ajay Jagotra, Senior Vice president and Shantanu Gupta, General Secretary.
