THE Action Group for Removal of Excise Duty on Ready-made Garments Industry (AGREGI) has expressed disappointment over the decision of the Government to ignore their plea for withdrawal of the 16 per cent excise duty on registered branded garments.

The Government has ignored the genuine proposals of the domestic industry", Mr Rahul Mehta, Convenor, AGREGI, told the Hindu Business Line.
