KCCI files complaint with registrar of companies over misuse of its name
Srinagar: Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI), one of the premier associations of the business community of Kashmir incorporated under Companies Act, 1956 with the Union Ministry of Corporate Affairs, has filed a complaint with Registrar of Companies (ROC), Srinagar office requesting it to take action against the misuse of its name, the trade body said in a statement.
The complaint by KCCI read that a new and “unregistered name” Chamber of Commerce & Industry Kashmir (CCIK) was misleading the media and the public in general in their meetings and press conferences.
“Some news items and press notes issued by them are enclosed for ready reference. The said Association is not registered anywhere. The CCIK is bringing disrepute to the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry and a bad name to the business fraternity of the Kashmir region,” it said in the complaint.
The KCCI requested ROC to kindly look into the matter and issue notice to all departments and police informing them that they are not representing CCIK and also issue notice against them so that they don’t use KCCI’s name in future.
“The Chamber of Commerce & Industry Kashmir (CCIK) may please be booked under Section 447 (punishment for fraud), Section 448 (for false statement), Section 449 (for false evidence), Section 450 (where no specific penalty or punishment is provided), Section 451 (repeated defaults), Section 452 (wrongful withholding of property), Section 453 (for improper use of “Limited” or “Private Limited” or any other Section as specified therein under the Companies Act, 2013,” reads the KCCI’s complaint.
