Both the meetings were called by the administration to hear suggestions about the Amnesty Scheme of electricity fees pending from last three years, spokesperson SKT told Ziraat Times.

“The department is demanding the fee of the period in which the traders were not allowed to open their shops by government authorities after abrogation of Article 370 and in COVID19 pandemic. We appeal L.G. Manoj Sinha to kindly grant these struggling businesses amnesty. Let’s make a new beginning from 2022”, SKT further said.
