Industrialists Meet Piyush Goyal to raise concerned issues

Facing several issues related to different Central government departments, particularly rising prices of steel raw material, city businessmen met Union minister of commerce and industry Piyush Goyal and minister of state Som Parkash at Parliament House.
The delegation of businessmen comprised office bearers of Chamber of Industrial and Commercial Undertakings (CICU) and United Cycle and Parts Manufacturers Association (UCPMA), while prominent industrialists from all sectors of the industry were also present in the meeting.
Upkar Singh Ahuja, CICU president, and DS Chawla, UCPMA president, said, “The meeting with Union minister of industry and commerce Piyush Goyal and minister of state Som Parkash was held on Monday at Parliament House. Our delegation raised issues like continuous rise in steel prices, GST verification on purchase, government support on non validation of vehicle dismantling plant, export promotion schemes for MSME and the availability of raw material for MSME. The major point that came up for discussion was the continuous rise in steel prices, which can only be countered by formation of the steel regulatory authority. Both ministers heard our grievances patiently and also cleared their doubts on this matter after which it was decided by them that soon they would arrange our meeting with senior officials of the departments concerned and also steel manufacturers to address this problem and ensure that the MSME units get steel at competitive prices. Our delegation was quite satisfied with the meeting with the ministers and we are hopeful that the demands raised in the meeting will be fulfilled soon.”
In another meeting, a delegation of cycle industrialists comprising of UCPMA general secretary Manjinder Singh Sachdeva and others met Pawan Dewan, chairman of Punjab Large Industrial Development Board, at his office. The businessmen handed over a memorandum regarding the problems being faced by them from state government departments, especially Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL). Dewan assured the businessmen that their issues would be taken up with the PSPCL and state government as well.
