“Strick measures are being taken against property owners whose tax payment is overdue. Hence, all property owners need to clear their property tax dues at the earliest to ensure their properties aren’t sealed and auctioned,” MCG commissioner V Umashankar said.
On November 1, in a first across the state, the MCG had auctioned four properties of tax defaulters for ₹3.87 crore.
