DIMAPUR, NOVEMBER 25: The Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry has expressed concerns at the closure of New Market for the last couple of days, especially in the backdrop of the upcoming festive season.
The DCCI said the business community of New Market has just opened their shutters after months of closure due to COVID-19 pandemic and the sudden notice for closure of the Market has come as a rude shock since the business community have just begun to build their shattered economy.
DCCI appealed to the authority concerned to immediately lift the closure in the best interest of both the business community and the shoppers.
With the coming festive season, DCCI also requested all shops and business establishments to clean, spruce up and decorate their respective shops and premises latest by the first week of December. The Business Welfare Committees and Unions of various markets who are registered under DCCI have been requested to supervise the cleaning, face-lift and festive decorations in their respective jurisdictions.
DCCI will be inspecting all shops, markets and shopping complexes and give prizes to the best decorated shops and markets.
Meanwhile, DCCI informed all shops and traders to open their shutters on Sundays with effect from the month of December, to facilitate festive shoppers within Dimapur district, as well from other districts and neighbouring States.
All shops and business houses have been reminded to strictly abide and maintain the safety guidelines as per the latest Covid-19 SoP. DCCI will take strict action against those shops violating the safety guidelines made by the District Task Force, Dimapur, DCCI President, Akashe K Zhimomi stated.
