    The Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (JCCI) on Friday called for complete lifting of Covid-related restrictions in the region and a special package for economically hit traders, hoteliers and transporters. "As the Covid-19 cases have been receding considerably, we appeal to Chief Secretary Arun Kumar Mehta to go for complete unlocking of Jammu for restoration of normal business activities in the region," JCCI president Arun Gupta said. He said the business community of the region is passing through the worst phase due to extreme "financial crunch" due to continuous lockdowns and prevailing uncertainty. "To save the businessmen of Jammu there is dire need that the partial lockdown which is in force these days should be lifted henceforth so that the trading fraternity picks up the pieces and once again starts their life bit by bit," he said.
