He also welcomed and congratulated the other guests of honour for their contribution for the development of the city. KCCI President, Shri M. Ganesh Kamath in his speech raised the following issues before the Hon’ble Mayor. Raising certain concerns pertaining to the industry, KCCI President mentioned that the solid waste management cess on industries is too high in Mangaluru as compared to the rest of the state.
Moreover, there is no differentiation between commercial/residential units leading to a huge disparity in taxation. Another area of concern is the non-allocation of Khata and door numbers to the establishments in Baikampady industrial areas. This has been a long pending matter as the units located there are paying annual maintenance charges to Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) which is authorized to give approvals to building plans and also maintain infrastructure and other facilities.
Hence there is confusion prevailing overpayment of Self Assessment Tax (SAS). An amicable solution to the same has to be found at the earliest. The vote of thanks was delivered by Hon. Secretary of KCCI, Shri B.A. Nazeer.
