The agitation was followed by a bandh, reported by The DQ Week, conducted by TAIT last Monday.

Parag Shah, VP, TAIT said, "We believe in this cause and so we had participated in this protest campaign. This protest witnessed a participation of 30,000 to 40,000 people from across Maharashtra."

The protest was spearheaded by Federations of Associations of Maharashtra (FAM). FAM,whose 12 members have threatened to go on fast on Thursday, is an apex body of over 750 trade, transport and small scale associations across Maharashtra.

Shah said, "The support for this movement is tremendous and we saw participation of associations from different trade bodies from across Maharashtra. This includes a large number of smaller trader associations from Mumbai and other regions also. Also, Mohan Gurnani, president of FAM along with other members went on a hunger strike since yesterday."

"From the first protest held in early April to now, there is a lot of awareness about LBT and challenges associated with it. The IT channel partner today due our efforts and initiatives are now more informed about this taxation policy," said Shah.
