Due to the agitation of farmers of some states sitting on the dharna on the borders of Delhi for the last 26 days, there has been a huge loss of trade of about 14 thousand crores in the areas of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has urged the farmer leaders and the central government to immediately resolve this issue through negotiations. Traders have also requested the Supreme Court that especially in view of the problems faced by traders and other people of Delhi and other states, it would be better if the court bench of the court decides the hearing immediately.
CAT National President BC Bhartia and National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal have said that due to the agitation about 20 per cent of trucks are not able to bring goods from other states of the country to Delhi, due to which the goods sent from Delhi to other states are also opposite. It is affecting.
Everyday 50000 trucks bring goods to Delhi
Everyday about 50 thousand trucks come to Delhi carrying goods from different states across the country and about 30 thousand trucks carry goods outside Delhi to other states every day. At present, there is no shortage of items including essential commodities in Delhi. All India Transport Welfare Association (ATWA), the largest organization in CAT and transport sector, are jointly monitoring the movement of goods daily and are making every effort to ensure that there is no shortage of anything in Delhi or any other state. .
What goods come every day
Bhartia and Khandelwal said that FMCG products mainly from other states, everyday use goods by people, food grains, fruits and vegetables, groceries, dry fruits, electronics, electrical goods, medicines, building materials, iron Steel, textiles, machinery, building hardware, wood and plywood, readymade garments etc. come to Delhi in large numbers every day.
All these goods usually come mainly from Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Mathura, Agra Expressway, Delhi-Ghaziabad Highway, Delhi-Chandigarh Highway etc. Due to agitation on these highways, either the roads are closed or due to the long jam, trucks have to travel to Delhi for a long time due to which the supply is delayed or interrupted. If the movement went on for a long time, there is a possibility of problems in supply. But at present there is no shortage of anything and CAT and Etwa have decided that the supply chain will be continued under any circumstances.
