Nagpur: In an exclusive interview with Nagpur Today, newly elected President of Nag Vidarbha Chamber of Commerce Prakash Mehadia who won with 80% vote claimed that as president of the Trade Body, he will strive to ensure that traders in Nagpur will get to do their business without any hassles. He claimed that one of the major concerns of all the traders in India today is the Goods and Service Tax (GST).

He will represent the traders to demand for a one window system and one uniform tax system all over the country.
