Municipal commissioner Pratibha Pal on Tuesday directed revenue department officials of Indore Municipal Corporation to confiscate properties of people who owe over Rs 1L in property and garbage tax.
However, she signalled that the action would be taken only when the defaulters do not submit the tax by March 31.
She also directed revenue officials to reach the doorsteps of all the people who owe more than Rs 25,000 in tax and recover it by March 31.
Pal also directed officials to recover pending water cess, by March 31, from people who owe more than Rs 10,000.
Meanwhile, the IMC set a new record in recovery of garbage tax from the city.
In view of Swachh Survekshan-2021, revenue officials of IMC had taken recovery of garbage tax on a war footing.
