MC: Pay property tax from September 27 onwards

After much dilly-dallying, get ready to pay property tax from September 27 onwards.

With the ordinance for the amendment to the Punjab Municipal Act, 1911, and the Punjab Municipal Corporation Act, 1976, getting a nod from the Punjab Governor, the property tax is all set to make people pay for living in their own homes.

Not only the construction on a property will add to the tax but also the people who pay tax after the time prescribed by the MC will have to witness auction of their properties.

As per rules formed by the government, everybody owning either a residential home, commercial property or even a vacant plot has to pay property tax because they own a property.

However, residents feel that it is nothing less than dictatorship. Pradip Mehta, a resident of Model Town, said, \"What is the meaning of this tax after paying water and sewerage bills? Let MC do what they want but I will not pay.\"

\"Is it anything less than dictatorship to pay for owing a property? Why only tax from property owners?\" questioned Ramesh Singal from Aggar Nagar.
