Jamshedpur, June 20: A delegation of members of Jamshedpur Chamber of Commerce met East Singhbhum Deputy Commissioner Vijaya Jadhav on Monday and handed over a memorandum to her demanding relief from the ‘exorbitant’ charging of rent by Jamshedpur Notified Area Committee (JNAC).
Leading the delegation, Harvinder Singh Mantu said hundreds of traders of Jamshedpur were a harassed lot these days due to the recent hike in shop rent by the state government. He said the shop owners were unable to pay rent at the revised rate.
“The DC has advised us to file an appeal in the DC court and wait for the court’s verdict,” he said.
The traders said they were already facing tough times due to competition in the market.
The delegation membes included Pankaj Agrawal, Akash Sah, Manjeet Singh, Kamal Agrawal and Suresh Gupta.
