Kohima: The village council Sovima under Dimapur district has directed all business establishments and individuals within its jurisdiction not to pay ‘tax’ to Naga political groups till the various groups unite.

Chairman of the Sovima village council, Sebastian Zumvu, through a circular, informed that the directive is issued following the resolution adopted by the Chumoukedima Circle Chakhro Public Organisation on August 24 at the meeting held at Urra Village.
It notified its residents not to pay “tax” to any “Naga underground factions unless/until the various groups unite and Naga people decide otherwise”.

The chairman further informed that the notice is in tune with the decision taken by the Naga public on October 31, 2013, in the matter of “one government, one tax”.

The village council warned that those contravening the circular will be doing so at their own peril.

Recently, the NSCN-IM has also warned individuals from demanding taxes from the state government and private constructions in the name of the group.

Saying that it has received complaints about such kinds of “anti-social elements” being carried out in the name of the NSCN-IM, it warned that anyone found indulging in such wrongful demand will be dealt with as per the rules of its Government.
