RAI had earlier represented the issue to the State Government. Acting on the representation, the Government issued a notification to that effect for a period of one year, which expired on 16.03.17. RAI then requested the State Government to renew the same.
RAI, on behalf of the entire retail fraternity, thanks the progressive State Government of Maharashtra for considering its submission.
