NMC‘s ‘One Time Settlement Scheme’: Last 3 days

Citizens rushing to clear off dues
‘Now or Never’ chance; Action to be initiated soon against defaulters

OTS Scheme
With a cheerful response through-out, NMC’s One Time Settlement Scheme enters its last 3 day phase. Citizens of Nagpur have given an enthusiastic response to the scheme. So far, the scheme has fetched Rs.4,75,19,937 to NMC’s kitty. However, as the last few days of the scheme remain, NMC has cleared its stance of initiating action against defaulters of Water Bill if the benefit of the scheme is not availed.

The zone-wise collection is as follows:

NMC has appealed citizens to avail the benefit of this ‘now or never’ scheme. Once the scheme is over there will be no hearing on the arrears afterwards. Also, stern action will be taken against those who have not availed the benefit of the scheme.

It must be mentioned that taking into consideration the huge arrears and the troubles of the Water Bill arrear holders, Nagpur Municipal Corporation has brought up a citizen convenience scheme where arrear-holders can get rid of the arrears by paying 50% of the actual arrear amount. The scheme will be valid upto 30th June 2016.

The scheme is applicable to consumers belonging to Residential and Slum categories and who are having arrear amount more than Rs.2000. Under this scheme, of the total arrears amount mentioned on the consumer bills, 50% amount will have to be paid (excluding Delay Payment Charges). The revised amount will have to be completely paid off during the scheme period.
