Confederation of the Nagaland Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CNCCI) has set up two Disinfectant Tunnels at Railway Station Dimapur on May 22. 


Inaugurating the tunnels, Dimapur incharge for COVID-19 related activities, Y Kikheto Sema, IAS, APC and Commissioner & Secretary, Agriculture lauded the CNCCI for the initiative and expressed the hope that the business community would continue to contribute to the society. He also recalled how the business community of Dimapur responded to the call of the authorities in assisting them when some areas of Dimapur were sealed last month. He said the disinfectant chamber would initially be used for sanitizing luggage and not on human body since entire formalities are yet to be completed.


Even as the authorities were ready to receive the returnees from Chennai, Kikheto said, “we should all welcome them with dignity and honour since they are our own people.”  He urged civil societies and likeminded individuals to come forward do something good together for humanity.


Chairman of Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Dr Khekugha Murru said that the disinfectant chamber has been dedicated to the people of Nagaland by the business community of the state. 


He said the disinfectant chamber was installed at the railway station since a major chunk of the returnees arrive by train. Dr Murru said the CNCCI was planning to set up similar facility at the Dimapur Airport. He said the CNCCI IS using silver nitrate and hydrogen peroxide with a combination of water in the disinfectant which is considered as one of the safest combinations and FDA certified.


Chief Medical Officer, Dimapur, Dr Tiasunep said permission has been obtained to go ahead with using the facility but would be initially used only for disinfecting luggage since certification from ISO and  Drug Controller General of India was needed in order to start using on human body.
