Pune civic body collects Rs 1,000 cr property tax till November
The civic property tax department has collected Rs 1,000 crore in property tax so far this financial year.
In the same period last year, Pune Municipal Corporation had collected Rs 885 crore. However, with four months left in this fiscal, the civic body has a way to go to meet its annual target of Rs 2,100 crore.
Pune Municipal Corporation officials attributed the slight increase to the ease of making online payments, coupled with concerted efforts since June by specially appointed teams, which went door-to-door and reminded people to pay up.
PMC officials said owners of more than 2.97 lakh properties had still to pay tax for this fiscal and said they will step up efforts to collect these arrears. There are 9.78 lakh properties registered with PMC.
In November, PMC teams collected dues from over 23,600 properties, civic officials said
