Staff Reporter

ITANAGAR, 11 Jan: The Itanagar Capital Region deputy commissioner has notified the Arunachal Chamber of Commerce & Industries (ACCI) to conduct the election of the Itanagar Market Welfare Association (IMWA) before 20 January.

Addressing a press conference at the press club here on Tuesday, ACCI general secretary Toko Tatung informed that the enrollment for the election will begin on Wednesday.

“However, considering the reoccurrence of Covid-19 situation in the state, the ACCI will try its best to conduct the election and announce the results before the Republic Day celebration,” Tatung said.

“The enrollment process has been kept very simple, with requirements like a valid trading licence, GST certification of the business association, and location of the business association in the jurisdiction of Itanagar,” he added.

Tatung further informed that only the shopkeepers and owners of business establishments on either side of NH 415 are supposed to enrol themselves for the election “to avoid invalid application, as the shops in the sectors usually do not obtain a trading license of GST certification, and so far three parties have been approved for the upcoming election.”
