TANPPA plan­ning unique protest

Sunday Express - - SUNDAY STORY -

G Sankaran, pres­i­dent of Tamil Nadu, Pondy Plas­tic As­so­ci­a­tion (TANPPA), said that if gov­ern­ments don't heed their re­quest, the as­so­ci­a­tion will be forced to re­sort to other meth­ods. “If our stocks yards are full, then there is only one way to at­tract at­ten­tion, which is by dump­ing all the scrap in front of gov­ern­ment of­fices. We are hold­ing dis­cus­sions. Shortly, we will an­nounce a dead­line to re­duce GST, fail­ing which we will in­ten­sify the protests,” he said. Sankaran said the as­so­ci­a­tion only wants ex­cep­tion for scrap col­lected from streets, not in­dus­trial plas­tic waste. “That is be­cause fac­to­ries buy plas­tic raw ma­te­ri­als af­ter pay­ing 18% GST. And when the en­tre­pre­neur sells the plas­tic scraps, he col­lects 18% GST. There is no loss or gain,” he ex­plained.
