Vishnukumar Pacheriwala felicitated chartered accountants Mukesh Agrawal and Nitesh Agrawal. Speaking on the occasion, Kailash Jogani thanked all the members of the Chamber and traders community for electing and reposing faith in his leadership. He said, “Traders are not directly linked to any political party. As the election of corporates is nearing, traders should elect genuine candidates.” Jogani expressed concern over the condition of roads in the city and large number of encroachments. He also shed light on new technology, money protection and debt free trade. Traders should always do business with more transparency.
“Traders should not forget that they are first citizens of the country and then traders,” he noted. Nagpur Chamber of Commerce Limited is always committed to solve the problems of traders. The newly-elected President underscored the need to simplify the tax structure in the country. “In the entire world, there are various stringent laws in the taxation. The taxes are also on the higher side. The tax slabs should be reduced so that more people will come forward to pay taxes. Therefore, it is the need of the hour that the tax structure should be made more simple and taxpayer-friendly,” he suggested. The programme was conducted by Vivek Murarka and Yogesh Paliwal proposed the vote of thanks.
