Dear all,

​​​Near recent past, lot of things have taken place ​in our UT of Dadra & Nagar Haveli which will leave a long term affects on the industries of this area and which will bring tremendous changes in the profitability and functioning of the industries.

As Administration has notified the ​revised​ minimum wages,​ which are ​applicable in Dadra & Nagar Haveli from 1st April 2015.​ The wages has been enhanced to Rs. 268.20 for unskilled worker. This enhancement in the Minimum Wages shall have the very significant impact on the industries of this area.​

In other issue of the proposed GST Bill, which is pending before Rajya Shabha for its approval, there is a provision to levy ​additional tax up to 1% on inter-state supply of goods. This additional tax up to 1% shall have very negative effect on the industries of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and which may lead the closure of number of units from this area. As we all aware that, majority of our industries are procuring raw material in inter-state supply and selling the finished goods also in other States.
