Srinagar, July 25: Prominent Socio Political activist, TV Debater Inam Un Nabi addressed one day bakers awareness programme Organised by department Of food and drug administration in collaboration with Kashmir Bakers and Manufacturers Association.
Inam hailed JK Governor Satyapal Malik for clubbing the food safety and Drug department. Inam hoped this will help in rejuvenation of entire food and drug sector.
Inam Un Nabi appreciated the role of Bakers in Kashmir and lauded them for making the valley of Kashmir world famous bakery spot by producing high quality bakery.
Inam hoped bakery sector will be given all the required support and Bakers of Kashmir would always maintain very high standards.
Inam expressed dejection that GST for sweets is 5% and for bakery is 18% which is injustice as Ingredients are same and Shops are same. Products are same. GST for bakery at 18% is clear cut injustice.
Inam appealed honorable governor to get bakery under 5% GST.
Inam observed :”Nobody is against market checking but to harass a shopkeeper in the name of checking is not acceptable.There should be some Uniformity in checking. Almost a single shop get six times checked by 6 different Departments in a day and sometimes more. This amounts to harassing.
Inam further said “Food and drug Administration needs to be praised for ensuring food safety.”
It is worth mentioning here that a momento was presented to Inam Un Nabi by the commissioner food and drug Administration on this occasion.
