Traders associations from 24 municipal corporations in a meeting of its presidents have decided to launch an indefinite trade bandh across the state, Federation of Associations of Maharashtra (FAM) said today.

"At our meeting against Local Body Tax (LBT) with presidents of traders' associations from 24 municipal corporations, it has been decided to launch an indefinite trade bandh across the state from Wednesday," FAM president Mohan Gurnani told PTI here.

Wholesale and retail traders from from Mumbai, Thane and Nagpur have been on an indefinite strike since last fortnight in protest against imposition of LBT . Gurnani said that the Bombay Goods Transport Association and Bharat Shah of the Mumbai Diamond Traders Association have also supported the trade bandh.

FAM is also considering a non-cooperation agitation where traders would be asked to pay only five per cent amount of value added tax, Gurnani said. Meanwhile, the police is reported to have detained 50 traders of the Metal And Steel Merchants' Association (MASMA) today evening.
