Earlier, on Thursday, the Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) had called for Jammu Bandh on Saturday against the government's decision of imposing property tax in the municipal areas of Jammu and .

Addressing a press conference here, CCI Jammu president, Arun Gupta said that “The property tax was imposed unilaterally without consulting the elected representatives. We were expecting that our demand would be considered but it was not done which is very unfortunate.”

He said that the decision to impose tax should be left to an elected government and the elected urban local bodies.

He said that “Therefore, we have decided to go for a one-day symbolic bandh in Jammu on Saturday with the support of Bazaar Associations and Yuva Rajput Sabha.”

“For the last 15 days, they never clarified the type of tax being imposed on commercial institutions. Why is the factual position being hidden from the community?” said the CCI president.
