Agra civic body issues notice to 20,000 house tax defaulters
Cracking the whip against 20,000 house tax defaulters, Agra Municipal Corporation (AMC) administration has served them notices, demanding payment of outstanding dues. They have been directed to deposit the dues within 15 days. They have been warned that if they fail to do so, action will be initiated against them in accordance with the law.
According to the civic body officials, some of the property owners have not paid house tax for over the past five years.
The civic body sources said following a city wide survey, three lakh properties — residential and commercial — have been identified. Last year, AMC received house tax from only 80,000 property owners.
