If you have not yet submitted the house tax, then immediately run for the Municipal Corporation. Under the stringent provisions in tax collection, after March 31, the corporation will charge a fine of up to Rs 15,000 from every defaulter. Municipal Commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey issued its order.
There is only 20 days left in the completion of the financial year and till now 35 percent of the building owners have not deposited the tax in the Municipal Corporation. The corporation has an annual recovery target of Rs 75 crore, which has so far been Rs 42 crore. Every time the corporation used to give a 20 percent exemption in tax till the last day of March, but this time the corporation had kept this deadline March 20. After this, the full tax will be deposited from 21 March.
Although the councilors had sought to extend the waiver time till March 31, Mayor Sunil Uniyal Gama has refused. Now a new order has been issued by the city commissioner on the non-tax payers. In this, there is a provision of fine from Rs 200 to 15 thousand rupees for non-payment of tax by 31 March.
The city commissioner said that if the target of 50 crores is also met this time, it will be a major achievement of the corporation. Earlier, the corporation was able to collect only 25 crores tax which has been increased to 42 crores this year.
Corporation will make the announcement
The municipal corporation will make the announcement in the wards for the collection of tax. All the cleaning inspectors have been instructed to go to their respective areas and make a list of those who do not pay the tax. Not only this, but it has also been asked to make a list of big defaulters. Notices are being sent to them and attachment action will be taken if tax is not deposited.
