Akhil Gujarat Tourist Vehicle Operators Federation
Represented against a very high monthly tax for 2X3 buses, got a reduction of more than 25000 rupees per bus per annum.
Once the state government made a notification not allowing the operators “NON USE” of the vehicle for more than a month. The organization had to fight for a long time in high court and finally could establish that the state government had no right to form such a rule. The whole law of composite tax had to be cancelled.
The above success was a
. But the government played a game and made a new rule, and gave effect form the date. So instead of refund the operators had to pay an unplanned back log. AGTVOF again fought and wor a relief of one year against six months back log.
Represented again in the year 2002-03 and snatched a relief for 2X3 bus operators of Rs. 25000/- per bus per annum.
