The delegation led by CBM president Charanjiv Singh demanded simple and non-harassing procedures to be followed during raids or holding goods during transportation. The members took up other issue such as automatic self-assessment of VAT cases where no C-form sales were involved, issuing C-forms online with facility to print them at home, number of banks accepting tax payment to be increased, rationalisation of VAT rates on items which had lesser VAT rates in adjoining states and trade-wise high tax payer to be honoured.

UT assistant excise and taxation commissioner RC Bhalla assured the delegation that care would be taken not to harass genuine traders when goods were seized for verifications. He also said no assessment or scrutiny would be done where the local sale of VAT dealer was less than Rs. 1 crore. Bhalla said more banks would be authorised to accept tax payments within the next 15-20 days to facilitate the dealers.

He also intimated that after the exhaustion of current stocks of C-forms, the facility to get the forms printed at trader's end would be provided as was being done in Himachal Pradesh. He also assured to consider the demand to honour trade-wise high tax payers.

THE MOST VENOMOUS

Late on Wednesday night, my smartphone flashed the caller's name 'Salim Khan'. I presumed it was Khan wanting to inform me of yet another exciting snake rescue or a tragic snakebite. But my heart sank. It was not Khan but a panicky lady blabbering at the other end. I thought my worst fears had come true: after having rescued hundreds of venomous snakes from tricky spots, I thought this time Khan had himself been bitten by one and that his relatives were informing me. However, it was not exactly a venomous snake that had struck Khan. It was MAN, a species that has proved deadlier than the most toxic of slithering serpents.  Writes VIKRAM JIT SINGH
