A property with the pending tax amount close to Rs 7 lakh was sealed in Sector 44 and another in Sector 52A with dues amounting to Rs 57 lakh was also sealed.

Continuing its sealing drive for the second day against the defaulters who have not filed their property tax, the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) on Wednesday locked six more properties in the city. The pending tax amount for these six properties is of the order of Rs 2.96 crore.

The six properties include one in Narsinghpur in zone 1 with a pending tax amount of more than Rs 45 lakh. In zone 2, a commercial parking yard in Sukhrali with tax dues exceeding Rs 1 crore, and another property with pending tax of more than Rs 31 lakh was sealed in Palam Vihar.

A property with the pending tax amount close to Rs 7 lakh was sealed in Sector 44 and another in Sector 52A with dues amounting to Rs 57 lakh was also sealed. A private building in Sector 68 with a pending tax of Rs 41 lakh was locked on Wednesday.

“The drive against the property tax defaulters will continue. If the defaulters fail to pay the property tax even after sealing, the properties will be attached and then auctioned,” said Vinay Pratap Singh, MCG commissioner.

On the first day of the drive, the MCG had sealed nine properties including three farmhouses. While the Haryana government has extended the deadline to file property tax to January 31, MCG has recovered around Rs 37 crore of property tax in December alone. The recovery was possible since the deadline earlier was December 31. Around Rs 154 crore of property tax has been recovered so far from April 1, 2019, till date. According to the Haryana Municipal Corporation Act, 1994, it is mandatory to file property tax for the vacant plots and all types of complexes. In case the property tax is not filed, 18% interest is levied on it every year.

In December, the maximum recovery had come from zone 3, which amounts to Rs 15.47 crore followed by zone 2 at Rs 8.31 crore, zone 4 at Rs 6.84 crore, zone 1 at around Rs 6.92 crore. MCG had sent notices to 253 big defaulters, who have dues exceeding Rs 20 lakh each and had given them one week’s time to pay their dues by December 25. However, the deadline was extended to January 31. Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had asked the MCG officials about the status of recovery of property tax from the defaulters when he had visited the MCG stall at Gita Jayanti Mahotsav in Gurgaon last year. He had directed the MCG officials to recover the dues from the big defaulters, whose cumulative pending amount run into crores.
