There Is No Biz like Good Biz


Jaipur, Sept. 20 -- When elections are round the corner and political parties more susceptible to suggestions, it's time to raise demands.

Thus, when the Hindustan Times - in a first-of-its-kind initiative to build a public manifesto - invited trade organisations and industry bodies to share their wish-list, they came up with a plethora of demands ranging from social security to skill development.

Highlighting the need to increase the storage capacity for agriculture produce, Gupta suggested building of more storage warehouses and cold storages on public private partnership (PPP) model.

He also demanded of the parties to do away with mandi tax of 1.60% and said, "There is no mandi tax anywhere in the country but in Rajasthan where the agriculture sector is already weak.

Gupta quoted that only 60% of the oil mills were functional and demanded reduction of tax from 1.6% to 1%. The mandi tax on sugar should also be reduced to .50%.
