In the matter of Goverment revenue there is no settlement. You should have surrendered your license the shop was closed. However, please contact the Deputy Labour Commissioner for sorting out the problem. This is a fee not a tax. If you have not run the shop, I think there should have been no need to charge fee the period when you did not run the shop.

Exactly am agreeing with Sharma ji...only non-compliance you had done was not fulfilling the formalities laid down in the Maharastra Shops & Commercial Establishments Act...probably you could have some legal documents for winding up your business activities at that time and that is engough...please meet DLC and settle the issue...please do not pay single pie in this case...still he insist approach vigiliance department....

Well, I do Agree with Mr. S.R. Sharma. Besides this U must talk to inspector that how he is computing Rs. 85,000.00. This is not a pitty amount. U shoild and MUST talk to vigilace dept. if u think that the computation is not correct. If this is a fee how he can settle the things in 25,000.00 Is he kind enough to deposit the balance with his pocket.
