THE STATE Government today assured action against Jawaharlal Nehru Cooperative Spinning Mill, Khargone, if the management was found guilty of committing irregularities in connection with the amount of more than Rs 1.40 crore refunded to the mill by the Commercial Tax Department. The State Congress president Subhash Yadav happens to be chairman of the mill’s board of directors.

In reply to a question during the question hour from Babulal Mahajan, Commercial Tax Minister Babulal Gaur said that Rs 1,40,20705 were refunded to the mill in seven appeal matters in 2002-03 and 2003-04.

Gaur also said the mill incorporated the amount in its profit instead of returning the amount to the persons concerned. Mahajan asked who were the authorities responsible for the same and what action would be taken against them. Gaur assured that the entire episode would be looked into and if required action would be taken against the mill authorities concerned.

EARTHQUAKE SURCHARGE:
In reply to a question from Sharad Jain, Gaur informed that the State had received Rs 1682.96 crore from 1997-98 to June 2005 against earthquake surcharge.

The minister, however, expressed his inability in furnishing the information on details of expenditure of the amount. He said since the amount received through taxes was deposited in contingency fund, which was used for all the programmes of the government, it was not possible to give details of the expenditure of earthquake surcharge.

ILLEGAL PLYING OF BUSES:
Transport Minister Himmat Kothari informed that proceedings were initiated against as many as 112 buses found violating the permit rules by the RTO, Jabalpur, from January 1, 2005 to January 31, 2006.
He said if the buses were found plying without permits action would be initiated to seize such buses.

COMMERCIAL TAX ON FUEL: Babulal Gaur informed that the State Government received Rs 3953.23 crore against commercial tax, surcharge, entry tax and certain notifications from 2003-04 to 2005-06 (up to January 2006).
The amount included Rs 1172.42 crore collected in 2003-04, Rs 1501.84 crore in 2004-05 and Rs 1278.97 crore in 2005-06 (up to January 2006). The amount also included revenue collected on sale by Messrs Essar Oils Ltd and Messrs Reliance Petroleum Pvt Ltd.
