Surat, Sep 19 (UNI) Textile traders here today demanded that Income Tax raids should be avoided during the festival season.
Traders of two textile markets today took out a rally and met Additional Income Tax Commissioner, Rajeev Lal. They submitted a memorandum demanding that the survey procedure should be transparent and conducted in the presence of representatives of the Market association.
Earlier, members of R K D Textile Market and the N P M Market went on a flash strike alleging the income tax officials during a survey had tried to strike a 'compromise' and pressurised some traders to admit unaccounted money.
R K D Textile Market Association President Jailal Lalvani said Mr Lal, after listening to them, promised to look into the matter.
