Entrepreneurs in Sikkim are entitled to full or cent per cent tax relaxation if the Sikkim Government re-establishes the Registration of Companies Act of 1961, Denzong Sherpa Association spokesman Pasang Sherpa said on Wednesday. On Tuesday the Chief Minister announced 75 per cent tax and revenue exemptions for new entrepreneurs.
Sherpa reiterated that land of the Sherpa community should get protection under Revenue Order no. 1 while the Chief Minister said on Tuesday that land of the Sherpa community could not be protected under the same order.
