Modassa: As many as 5000 families of Aravalli district, depending upon the work through transportation, are now in trouble to earn the livelihood due to the implementation of GST.
According to information, the reason behind living a miserable life is most of the industries have come to a setback & transportation of materials are stopped. The movement of more than 1200 trucks is out of the road for the last two weeks.
More than 1200 truck has been operated from Meghraj, Titoi for Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh every day but most of them are upheld in these two states for the last fifteen days. Due to this, the truck owners are also in trouble.
The president of truck association Ibrahim Jamadar expressed a deep concern over the issue as the subject is directly related to truck drivers & labours engaged for loading & unloading are the main sufferers because of lack of funds. While on the other hand, the truck owners are also unable to pay the loan instalments.
Ibrahim expressed his views for a prompt solution otherwise the transport agencies will be in trouble.
The truck driver Bhikabhai also conveyed the same message and said that "even the payments of various labourers are also held up due to GST. The forthcoming days are going to be full of challenges for these families."
