Licence fee reduced for manufacturing explosives

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry revised the manufacturing explosives licence fee. Earlier, in a notification, dated 20 March, 2014, the Director of Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, said fees payable by the industry would be revised under the Explosives Rules, 2008. The revision of fees from about five times to 27 times is totally unjustified. The annual licence fee to manufacture explosives of Class 1 or 7 (exceeding 200 kilograms at a time) has been revised to Rs.66,000 from a maximum of Rs.15,000. Similarly, the annual licence fee for possessing fireworks of Class 7 explosives in magazine has been increased to Rs.4 lakh from Rs.15,000, the industry sources say. To protest the department-s decision, the industry go for an indefinite strike and staged hunger strike at TANFAMA, on 15th April 2014. Now the new Government reduces the licence fee for manufacturing explosives and that brings smile in the face of Sivakasians.
