Ghaziabad jewellers on strike

Ghaziabad, March 20 (IANS) The jewellers market in Ghaziabad remained closed on Monday to protest the “atrocities” committed by the Income Tax Department.

Several jewellers took out a procession and submitted a memorandum to District Magistrate Nidhi Kesarwani.

They also staged a protest outside Nidhi Jewellers in Navyug Market, demanding withdrawal of the police complaints which they said the income tax officials filed against them.

“Over a thousand shops across the city including Vaishali, Vasundhara, Indirapuram and Old City were shut,” said Gaurav Garg, General Secretary of the jewellers association.

The Income Tax Department reportedly carried out a survey on firms which declared assets under the Volunteer Disclosure Scheme before December 31.
