Property tax defaulters feel the heat

NASHIK: The civic body has started acting tough on property tax defaulters, confiscating properties of 76 such offenders and planning to auction those in the first week of April.

Sources in the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) said the date to auction the confiscated properties would be announced in a day or two. The NMC had confiscated total properties of 82 defaulters, giving them a deadline of 21 days to clear the dues. Of them, only six defaulters cleared their dues, albeit partly. Following this, the NMC released their properties. Now, further action for auctioning the confiscating properties has been started by the civic administration.

Speaking to TOI, an official in the property tax department of the municipal corporation said, “We have decided to crack the whip on property tax defaulters because most of them have not cleared their dues. We had issued warrants to 2,420 property tax defaulters across the city with dues amounting to Rs 6.87 crore. We gave them a 21-day ultimatum to pay taxes. Of them, 1,235 tax defaulters cleared their taxes, either completely or partially, to the tune of Rs 1.74 crore. Now, we have started confiscating the properties of defaulters who did not clear their dues even 21 days after the warrants were issued.”

He added, “As part of our plan, we confiscated properties of 82 (property) tax defaulters with dues amounting to Rs 25.73 lakh. We had given another 21 days deadline to the owners of the confiscated properties. But only six defaulters paid their dues within the deadline. Hence, we will auction the confiscated properties of 76 defaulters. The auction is likely to be held in the first week of April. We will finalise the date for auctioning the properties in a day or two.”

Before warrants, final notices are issued by the civic administration to the property tax defaulters, giving them an ultimatum of 15 days to pay their dues. Thereafter, warrants are issued to property tax defaulters. The civic administration had issued final notices to 62,497 defaulters with total dues of Rs 65.80 crore in past three-four months. Of which, 10,337 property tax defaulters paid Rs 10.53 crore. As a result, the civic administration started issuing warrants to remaining defaulters who did not pay the tax dues.
