SOURCE - TIMES NEWS NETWORK
GANDHINAGAR: The Union ministry of external affairs has joined in the effort to ensure the success of 'Resurgent Gujarat Business Partnership Meet-2002' scheduled to be held from February 8 to 10 at Tagore hall, Ahmedabad. Leading industrial organisations from various states and countries, besides state entrepreneurs have been invited to participate in this event, according to Hasmukh Adhia, Industries Commissioner of Gujarat.


According to Adhia, the export-import trade from Gujarat has also been brought into focus of the main agenda to help importers and manufacturers to tie-up with most viable alternatives and to help them search most profitable markets for exports of finished goods in other countries.

He pointed out that Gujarat has great potential for exporting various industrial products to many countries. Gujarat is also exporting various kinds of industrial products like chemicals, fertilizers, drugs and pharmaceuticals, ready-made garments, engineering goods, ceramic products to many of the countries of the world including UK, USA and many European, African and Asian countries.

Gujarat's contribution in the export trade of the country was 17 per cent and with the aim of expanding horizons of export-import trade of the state, this particular segment has also been brought into focus along with other areas.

Union Ministry of External Affairs, Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, New Delhi, Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Industrial Extension Bureau - iNDEXTb are jointly organising the event.

These organisations are also tapping all of their resources for the success of the event. UK has also agreed to be a partner country for this event, he said.

Adhia also informed that it was for the first time that the ministry of external affairs was co-sponsoring an event like this in the country. It is through the MEA that Indian embassies of several developed and developing countries have been requested to ensure participation of industrial houses of these countries to participate in this event.

Rajkot citizens shy away from paying house tax Sunday, December 2, 2001

SOURCE - TIMES NEWS NETWORK
RAJKOT: When it comes to clamouring for better civic amenities, Rajkotians are most vocal and very often succeed in driving home the message to the authorities concerned.


At the same time, when it is time to clear the house tax bill, they develop cold feet!

Statistics released by the tax department on Friday show that almost 1,500 tax payers have not paid their house tax for the last 10 years while another 5,000 have not cleared the dues for the last five years.

As a result of non-payment of taxes, the Rajkot Municipal Corporation is perennially in the red and has been forced to shelve many development works in the city and curtail maintenance of many roads and other civic amenities.

Tax department sources told 'The Times of India' that had these defaulters paid their taxes in time, the civic body would have been able to show a surplus of Rs 25 crore rather than being in the red.

The most intriguing aspect is that a small number of tax payers owe huge amounts and most of them are politically well connected.

Another interesting aspect that has come to light is that there are around two lakh tax payers of whom just 2000 clear the bill in time.
