Mayor Raj Bala Malik on Wednesday launched the facility of issuing clearance certificates to residents in respect of property tax paid and getting the certificates mailed to their residences without any requests.
While launching this facility at the command and control centre on municipal corporation (MC) office premises in the presence of MC commissioner KK Yadav and additional commissioner Anil Kumar Garg, the mayor said the corporation will issue about 80,000 certificates within two months. Garg said, “On the first day, the civic body issued 3,000 certificates.”
“The entire process will be completed within two months. The certificates will be mailed to the taxpayers through the postal service. It is a suo motu service intended to encourage better compliance,” he added.
There are 1.40 lakh properties under the jurisdiction of the MC, of which 95,000 are taxable. All properties against which accounts are cleared and no property tax payments are due will automatically be issued the no-dues certificates.
