Padampur: The traders’ association of Padampur has called for 12-hour bandh in the urban area on Tuesday. The bandh call was given in protest against the GST raids at some business establishments, which were, they termed, politically motivated.

The bandh will be observed from 6am to 6 pm, traders said.

However, the government offices and schools and Colleges will function normally as these were excluded from the bandh. Similarly, the bandh will not affect the vehicular communication in the town, the traders association said.

All the shops, business complexes and establishments will remain shut for 12 hours, he informed.
