Meghalaya Editors’s and Publishers Association (MEPA) is totally aggrieved in the increase of newsprint cost, in the form of customs duty of 10 percent, as per the budget speech of the Finance Minister, a week ago.

In the past two years, the print media have faced lots of problems, due to the implementation of GST, where we have to pay advances taxes of 5 percent for advertisements and also on purchase of newsprints etc and the fluctuation in the cost of newsprint which has affected the publishing houses severely.

MEPA urges upon the Finance Minister, Government of India, to reconsider her decision and with draw the 10 percent custom duty, as presented in the Parliament.

MEPA, also urges upon the honourable chief Minister, Shri Conrad Sangma, to kindly initiate to release pending advertisement bills of several local newspapers, which was lying un attended in State Government Offices for many many years, as this will give some relief to the present crisis of newspapers houses.
