Visits by the Income-Tax Department officials on Friday morning spooked the markets in Jaipur which led to Jaipur shopkeepers shutting shops in protest.
“I-T officials visited about ten business houses, mainly in Johri Bazaar, on Friday morning and harassed the jewellers. The business is already down and nobody has money to buy much, so this was uncalled for,” said Federation of Rajasthan Trade and Industry (FORTI) president, Suresh Agarwal.
“So we decided to close the markets for the day in protest. We have also called a meeting to deliberate the same on Saturday,” he said.
On November 9, people had thronged jewellery shops to buy gold with their cash following the announcement that Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes would be demonetised midnight.
“All those who had wanted to buy gold jewellery with their money had done so on the 9th itself, why harass us now,” Agarwal said.
