DDCA looks for breather from Delhi High court
On Friday, the DDCA-MCD tussle over the payment of property tax dues is set to resume at the Delhi High Court.
The hearing comes at a time when the civic body is pushing for the recovery of Rs 92 lakh in dues from the DDCA and the cricket body wants it waived as it is engaged in the promotion of sports.
“As of now, the court has not admitted the case though it is hearing their appeal. So we have a right to claim dues,” said Deep Mathur, the Director of Press Information, MCD. “We can pursue the demand for tax and have already given them the deadline.”
Interestingly, as per the letter it shot to the DDCA, a copy of which is with the Hindustan Times, the DDCA should have paid the dues by now. When apprised of this fact, the MCD said that they will pursue the case soon, though it failed to confirm when.
