Govt contractors put off strike till August 5 26.7.2017 DNA: Top News
Government contractors, who have been on strike since July 16, have put off their strike till August 5, the Gujarat Contractors Association said on Tuesday. The decision comes a day after top contractors and presidents of district contractors’ associations met in Gandhinagar.   Association president Arvind Patel said that the decision to put off the strike till August 5 was taken unanimously after detailed discussions.   Thousands of government contractors have been on strike since July 16 to protest 18% rate of tax on works contract under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) which, they say, would lead to heavy losses to them as their tax burden would go up by 10 to 12% due to the high GST rate.   “There is no way we can bear this additional tax cost.
