Pradyot Manikya Deb Barma, chairman of TIPRA Motha, has announced that no work will proceed within the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) without a legal trading and labor license. This decision underscores a stringent enforcement policy aimed at protecting local opportunities and ensuring compliance with legal standards.

Deb Barma emphasized the importance of legal documentation for all businesses and workers operating within the council’s jurisdiction. He stated, “The enforcement of legal trading and labor licenses is crucial for the fair and just operation of businesses in our region. It ensures that local entrepreneurs and workers are not unfairly disadvantaged by those who operate without proper authorization.”

This move is expected to have a significant impact on the economic landscape of the TTAADC, where many small businesses and informal workers currently operate without official licenses. By mandating legal compliance, the council aims to create a more regulated and equitable business environment.

Deb Barma highlighted the necessity of this regulation for maintaining order and promoting sustainable development. “Our goal is to create a system where every business and worker is accountable and operates within the legal framework. This will not only protect local jobs but also ensure that businesses contribute to the economic development of the region,” he explained.

The chairman’s directive also includes strict penalties for those found operating without the necessary licenses. Enforcement teams will conduct regular inspections to ensure compliance, and violators will face fines or shutdowns. This robust enforcement mechanism is intended to deter illegal operations and encourage businesses to obtain the required licenses.

Local businesses have reacted to the announcement with a mix of support and concern. Some business owners appreciate the move towards regulation, believing it will level the playing field and improve business standards. However, others are worried about the potential costs and bureaucratic hurdles involved in obtaining licenses.

To address these concerns, Deb Barma assured that the council would provide support and resources to help businesses transition to the new system. “We are committed to working with local businesses to make this transition as smooth as possible. Our teams will assist with the licensing process and provide guidance on compliance requirements,” he said.
