In Ghaziabad, traders will not operate on Saturday to press for amendments to certain provisions of the GST before the scheduled implementation of the new tax regime tomorrow. The strike called by The Uttar Pradesh Udhyog Vyapar Mandal demands that the provisions of GST be made more “trader-friendly”. Zonal chairman of UPUVM, Raj Kishore Gupta, confirmed that all the trade bodies affiliated to UPUVM will answer the call for the strike, reported news agency PTI.
