Dear Sir, In Gujarat all nagarpalika takes daily baithak fees from small hawkers vendors lariwalas... They use nagarpalika's space for some hours for their business and pay fees to palika. It's O K. But in my town palika make a resolution for this baithak fees and takes fees forcefully from the persons who are not liable to pay the fees. For example they take fees from every vehicles enter in our town to deliver goods. They also take fees from very poor trible people who comes to give delievery of fruits or vegetables to their wholsaler. They never use space of palika to sale their goods. In all gujarat no other palika has made any resolution like this. In gujarat there isn't any entry tax or octroi. Than how can a palika make this type of resolution ? and cheat very poor people. What can be done to stop it?

If the Palika's are collecting fees according to their resolution and Nagar Palika bill then apparently there is no wrong. You can always challenge the same before the appropriate authorities. You should also see whether the collection is being made against valid receipt. If not, you should file an FIR to the nearest police station for such illegal activities. You can also contact with the local businessmen association for raise their voice against this forceful fees. You can file complain before the appropriate authorities. You can file a PIL before the High Court.
