    Even the INTUC had suggested very effective and concrete measures to NMC Commissioner Shyam Wardhane for increasing the revenue by way of recovering taxes in a systematic ways and means. But here also the NMC boss created a hell of a mess. He put the ball in the court of Additional Municipal Commissioner Hemant Pawar but he too did not move an inch to take care of the INTUC suggested measures.

    The harshly worded directives of NMC Commissioner Shyam Wardhane to Tax Department officials and employees to recover various taxes on war-footing have time and again proved hollow. There might have been an increase in revenue collection but by and large the Tax Department has abysmally failed in achieving the target set by the top NMC boss or office-bearers of Ruling Party (BJP) like Chairman of Standing Committee and Mayor. March 31 is coming nearer and nearer but there is no visible action to recover taxes in gigantic proportions in order to fill coffers of cash-starved NMC.

    Even the INTUC had suggested very effective and concrete measures to NMC Commissioner Shyam Wardhane for increasing the revenue by way of recovering taxes in a systematic ways and means. But here also the NMC boss created a hell of a mess. He put the ball in the court of Additional Municipal Commissioner Hemant Pawar but he too did not move an inch to take care of the INTUC suggested measures.

    The INTUC had provided even provided a list of officials and employees of Tax Department working in other departments to Hemant Pawar. A total of 35 officials and employees of Tax Department are working in other departments and thus hitting the recovery of taxes hard. All these ominous aspects adequately point out that either the 35 officials or employees are “blessed” by the top bosses for obvious reasons or they are not at all interested in boosting the revenue of “begging” NMC.

    It may be recalled, Nagpur Today had flashed a report titled: “INTUC suggests NMC Commissioner ways to boost revenue”wherein it was reported that the poor financial situation of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) now drawn the attention of INTUC affiliated unions of NMC and they have suggested a slew of measures to NMC Commissioner aimed at increasing the revenue of cash-strapped civic body. The suggested measures mainly pertain to revamp of Tax Department, get rid of messy affairs and tighten the grip over assessment and recovery of various taxes in order to fill the NMC coffers to the brim. The better situation of coffers will certainly make NMC self-dependent instead of roaming with begging bowl. But the suggested measures need care of top NMC boss.

    However, the irony is that the NMC Commissioner cared a hoot to follow the suggested measures with excuse of lack of time to go through the entire exercise and conveniently put the ball into Additional Municipal Commissioner’s court. The Additional Commissioner too bungled in his actions. He invited crucial aspects pertaining to suggested measures from the proposers themselves instead of the NMC Administration. The move by Additional Municipal Commissioner left the proposers sweating and trembling as they themselves had not prepared the well-studied measures. Now, the NMC Administration should find out the person behind the intelligent measures suggested by the NMC unions affiliated with INTUC. If the Administration finds the suggestions genuine and effectively working, it should form a committee to study the suggested measures in details. The committee should subsequently prepare a proposal on the measures and get is passed in the General Body Meeting of the NMC for implementation.

    FOLLOWING IS THE LIST OF OFFICIALS AND EMPLOYEES OF TAX DEPARTMENT WORKING IN OTHER DEPARTMENTS:
