Marble Association members finally called off their strike yesterday after getting an assurance from PM Narendra Modi. The marble association members were protesting against the slab rate that marble has been placed in as part of GST structure.
Tejendra Singh Robin, President of Udaipur Marble Association said that MPs from Rajasthan met PM Modi in Delhi and apprised him of the troubles that the marble industry is going through and seeking his intervention in rate revision. PM assured the representatives that if there has been a mistake in the GST tax slabs, it will surely be rectified and same will be taken up by the GST council.
Pankaj Gangawat, Secretary of the marble association said that the strike has not been called off but it has only been suspended for the time being.
Marble business resumes work from today after a long strike break.
