Auction of seized properties of Property Tax defaulters:  Shringare

Nagpur: The Chairman of Standing Commission of Nagpur Municipal Corporation held a Review and Analysis Meeting on January 15, 2016. The officials informed that due to the new tax policy, the collection of Property Tax was significantly less as compared to previous years. In the previous year, the Tax collected was in crores, while this year, the property tax amounted to only in lakhs.

It was also reported that Seizure Notices or Warrants have been issued to many who have not paid their Property Tax. Failing to deposit their property taxes within the stipulated time will result in seizure of their properties and auction of their properties.
