The protesting unit holders who had gathered at Press Colony in Srinagar said that the “discriminatory SROs” were passed in a hurry to benefit “a handful of outside investors” based in Jammu region.
Police swung into action and detained dozens of protesters after they tried to march towards the busy Resideny Road.
The protest held under the banner of Federation Chambers of Industries Kashmir (FCIK) saw presence of unit holders from several industrial estates across Kashmir.
FCIK President, Mukhtair Yousuf said providing 42 percent CGST refund from the state government to selected outside investors based in Jammu region is a burden on the state exchequer.
