TIRUNELVELI: Protesting the upwardly revised property tax structure, members of Tirunelveli District Traders’ Association observed a fast here on Tuesday.

The traders said the business, which had already been hit hard by inflation and load shedding, would further create trouble if the new tax structure of the Corporation came into effect.

Hence, the property tax and professional tax structure being proposed by the local body should be withdrawn immediately, they said.

District president of the traders’ association K. Murugesan, treasurer M.R. Subramanian, office-bearers Sona. Venkatachalam and K. Ramakrishnan spoke.
