GST, demonetisation hit unorganised sector in JK: Tarigami

JAMMU: CPI(M) legislator M Y Tarigami said today that demonetisation and implementation of GST crippled the unorganised sector of the economy in Jammu and Kashmir.

Initiating a discussion on the Budget in the Assembly here, he alleged that the two steps only led to “job losses”, contrary to the Government claims that the measures helped in curbing corruption and blackmoney.

“The implementation of GST, which was introduced with much fanfare, has not only increased burdens on the people but has also undermined the federal structure,” Tarigami alleged.

“GST put new burdens on people, small enterprises, traders and the unorganised sector,” he said. (AGENCIES)
