BMC Snaps 400 Water Connections Of Defaulters

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) has snapped over 400 water connections for recovery of pending tax in March so far. The BMC has started a drive to snap water connections of those who have defaulted on paying their water tax. March is the last month for the BMC to make recovery of taxes (property, water and garbage tax).

As part of the drive, the BMC is cutting water connections. The connections will be restored after clearance of the dues. The stern action is apparently to coerce defaulters and consumers to pay up their dues at the earliest as the administrations fear the poor collections may impact its overall image and earnings ratio.

BMC city engineer Udit Garg said, “We have snapped over 400 water connections for recovery of dues in March so far. On clearance of pending dues, these connections will be restored. The BMC is making all efforts to ensure clearance of pending taxes. We had sent notices, but the citizens did not turn up to clear dues.”
