Traders strike against GST:
Wholesale and retail markets will remain completely closed. But shops selling essential commodities have not been included in the shutdown. Shops catering to the needs of the people in residential colonies will also remain closed. Most traders say that there will be no significant impact on the transportation system. Only business activities are likely to be affected.
