New transporter union formed in Dimapur

Nagaland News

Dimapur, April 13: The Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) has informed that under its initiative, a new transporter union has been formed under the nomenclature All Nagaland Goods Movers Union (ANGMU).
DCCI vice president V. Shikuto Achumi said the formation of the new transport union comes against the backdrop of the September 25, 2021 joint meeting convened by Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce & Industry and DCCI wherein the then Dimapur Transport Union was banned and subsequently dissolved.
The formation of ANGMU was necessitated as there is an urgent need to have a transporter union to facilitate smooth flow of goods and essential commodities into the state of Nagaland, especially the commercial hub Dimapur, he said.
DCCI informed that ANGMU will also act as a bridge between transporters, traders and various Government agencies to ensure and streamline supply of goods and essential commodities and to check random illegal taxation, which is ultimately responsible for price inflation.
DCCI will strictly monitor the functioning of ANGMU and work collectively for welfare of transporters and business community as well keeping in mind the sentiments of the common public, the trade body said while requesting all registered transporters and business community of Dimapur to cooperate with ANGMU.
