Subject: Prayer to clarify whether deductions made by Minister / Advisor against contract / supplies work are legal or illegal.

Respect Sir,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am writing to address recent developments concerning taxation policies in Nagaland. Specifically, I seek clarification on the legality of certain deductions being made from contract / supply works.

It has come to my attention that a portion of these taxes—10% for ministers/advisors, 5% for party funds, and 5% for mobilization funds—is being deducted. While I understand the necessity of funding various initiatives and organizations, I am seeking clarification on the legality of these deductions.

As a concerned citizen, it is imperative for me to understand the legal basis for such deductions. Therefore, I kindly request immediate answers and further explanation regarding the legality of these deductions. Additionally, I would appreciate any insights you can provide on how these deducted funds are utilized for the benefit of the people of Nagaland.

Transparency and accountability are crucial in governance, and I trust that your office shares these values. Your prompt response to this matter would not only provide clarity to the citizens of Nagaland but also contribute to fostering trust and confidence in the administration.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter. I eagerly await your response.
