Pay property tax dues in 24 hrs, defaulters told


Pay property tax dues in 24 hrs, defaulters told

Abohar, August 9

As the financially crunched Municipal Council has not been able to pay salary to its staff for two months and also does not have resources to pay electricity bills, SDM Poonam Singh today led the council staff to knock at about 100 business establishments to motivate them to clear long-pending dues on account of property tax.

It had reportedly come to fore that dues on account of property tax and other taxes amounted to about Rs 3 crore. The council had earned wrath of the state government after the Regional Deputy Directors in the Local Bodies Department and Local Funds Audit detected property scams and served notices to 10 junior staff members, besides issuing chargesheets to three former executive officers. The Safai Sewak Union had twice organised strike due to non-payment of salary this year.

The SDM started the drive from Aggarsein Chowk and covered old Tehsil Road, timber market and Sadar Bazar. The staff of the council that assisted her also removed temporary encroachments from Circular Road and other areas which had caused traffic problem also. She warned the defaulting businessmen to pay tax dues to the council within 24 failing or they might face action that included sealing of the shops. — OC
