After the recent protests in states like Punjab, Maharashtra, Gujarat and MP, the Rajasthan Computer Traders Association (RCTA) is joining the league by organizing bandh across the Rajasthan today
The bandh is supported by all the city-based IT associations of Rajasthan including Udaipur Computer Traders Association, Beawar Computer Traders Association, Bhilwara Computer Traders Association, Alwar Computer Dealers Association, Bharatpur Computer Traders Association and Sri Ganganagar Computer Traders Association.
Explaining the objective behind the bandh, Sugreev Singh Ranavat, President, RCTA, said, “All the IT resellers will remain closed today to register protest against the unfair trade practices of the etailers. They are using their huge marketing funds for massive discounting of products, which are sold at 30-40 percent discount to prevailing MoP. Moreover, they are not paying VAT and local taxes while delivering the product, which is a huge loss to the Exchequer.”
