Not paid tax dues? Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon set to serve notices to defaulters, seal Propertyes

GURGAON: The MCG commissioner PC Meena on Tuesday directed officials to serve notices to property tax defaulters with dues amounting to Rs 1 lakh or more. The commissioner asked the officials to seal these properties after serving notices. “The residential, institutional, commercial and industrial properties in the city have to pay property tax as per the Haryana Municipal Corporation Act, 1994. The properties of the defaulters will soon be sold and subsequently auctioned,” said the commissioner. He chaired a meeting with the officials to review the issues related to property tax. Moreover, the commissioner also asked the officials to recheck the properties which have been registered for change in use. Around 1,244 commercial properties have changed their use to residential properties, causing revenue loss to the civic body. All these properties will be rechecked after which a committee will be constituted and then the decision will be taken. The officials said it is likely that the private agency which had done the property tax survey of the city also goofed up with the data of commercial and industrial units, which can result in financial loss for MCG. The tax amount of commercial properties is more than the residential properties. It was also informed in the meeting that MCG has collected the property tax amounting to Rs 171 crore so far in the current fiscal year. Property tax is one of the major sources of income for MCG. It is also decided to hold property tax collection camps in various colonies by collaborating with RWAs to augment collection. The civic body in 2020 had introduced an incentive system for the RWAs and ward committees, which would ensure tax collection in their areas. MCG had decided to give 5% of the total property tax collected in an area upto capping of Rs 50 lakh to ward committees and 5% of the total property tax collected from the jurisdiction with a capping of Rs 5 lakh for RWAs. However, the condition was that the collection crossed 80% of the total property tax and fire tax due in the area.
