Srinagar, Nov 13: Federation Chamber Of Industries Kashmir (FCIK) endorses and supports the issues raised by StateÂ Crushers Owners Association (SCOA) delegaton led by Randhawa with theÂ Lt GovernorÂ regarding the problems faced by them while carrying out their activities.
President FCIKÂ Shahid Kamili said that the associationÂ in its meeting conducted with the Advisor Baseer Khan had brought the issue into notice of chairperson and had suggestedÂ that the SRO 302 of 2017 should be given the prospective effect so that the units formally registered with the industries department before the commencement of the said SRO can carry on with their activities without any hurdles imposedÂ by line departments under the garb of said SRO.
"More so the stone Crushers are facing difficulty on carrying out their activities as no legal source of raw material is available since 2017 . As a result, the units are on theÂ verge of closure," Kamili said.
Kamili said the owners of the units are beingÂ treated like drug peddlers by the various administrativeÂ departments.Â Â
"Stone crushing activity is a need based activity andÂ all our infrastructural development-public or private is impossible without it," he said.
Kamili said there are round about 800 registered units in UT with an average of Rs 5 crore investment per unitÂ and an employment of 30 per unit.
"Lt Governor was requested to kindly take serious notice of the issue and redress the issue," he said.
"FCIK has assuredÂ stone crusher units of every help and support and assured to resolve this issue . We are taking up this issue of stone crushers at the highest level," Kamili said.
