A letter was handed over to Chamber of Commerce & Industries proposing IT Items VAT Rate Changes in the Budget.
Today CCI had a meeting with FM Mr. Drabu and was attended by Mr. Dikshit & Mr. Naveen, where in he showed concern for J&K and assured of business friendly Budget.
The letter carried the following recommendations:
1. Rate of Tax on UPS be revised from 13.5% to 5%, as it is 5% all over the Country.
2. Rate of Tax on Toners and Cartridges be revised to 5% from 13.5%. This higher rate of tax is prompting vendors to import from Punjab and other States without paying VAT etc, which is wrong practice as after applying VAT rate of items becomes more than the MRP of the product.
3. VAT on Software and related services be exempted as major chunk of Software is used either by departments and Government or is used for VAT Billing in Business & Industry.
An Executive Committee Meet was held on 2nd Oct 2015 and was attended by Mr. Dikshit Gupta, Mr. Rajan Gupta, Mr. Rajeev Majotra, Mr. Naveen Gupta, Mr. Pranav Baghotra, Mr. Ajay Koul, Mr. Rohit Jandial & Mr. Parminder Singh.
After discussing various previous issues, Mr. Pranav suggested that we should help our ailing member Mr. Deepak Jasrotia of M/s Shivam Technologies. It was decided that JCDA would contribute by collecting Rs.500/- from each member every quarter. Collection would be done by WC members in his area, so that collection can be done easily.
Mr. Rohit Jandyal raised issue of Best Price selling IT components by financing and making special arrangement outside his premises thereby hitting business of IT dealers in Jammu. It was decided that a delegate will meet Sales Tax Authorities in this regard and will apprise them of the situation. A proposed Seminar with them would also be discussed and finalized with them.
