Chandigarh civic body to send notice to Punjab-Congress office for delay in tax payment
The tax branch of the Chandigarh municipal corporation (MC) is all set to give attachment notice to Punjab Congress office in Sector 15 for not depositing the commercial property tax amount of around Rs 9 lakh to the civic body.
Significantly, the Punjab Congress had paid around Rs 6 lakh a couple of months ago and had promised to deposit the remaining amount soon, but the remaining money was not deposited after that.
“We gave ample amount of time to the Punjab Congress office to pay the remaining amount, but they did not do so. Now, we are left with no option but to send the attachment notice to the property in the coming week. We have already prepared the papers in this regard,” said a senior MC official. As per the records of the tax branch of the MC, the Punjab Congress office had to pay a total amount of Rs 15.52 lakh to the MC.
