Indore: Indore Municipal Corporation on Wednesday launched drive against property tax defaulters who had not paid tax despite issued several reminders. Immovable assets of more than 20 tax defaulters were sealed on Wednesday including the sealing a petrol pump of Suresh Bhadoria in ward number 35 of IMC zone 8. Municipal commissioner Asheesh Singh directed revenue officials to take action against those whose unpaid tax stands at Rs 1 lakh or more.
The IMC had appealed to landlords to pay property tax to avoid action. The IMC had offered rebate on advance payment of property tax by June 30. Rebate on surcharge were also granted for payment of property tax and other taxes during Lok Adalats held earlier. But many did not pay the tax. Now, IMC has undertaken a drive for recovery of tax amount from major defaulters.
