August 20, 2023

CHANDIGARH: Several hotels and schools have featured in the list of around 75 commercial properties which have defaulted on property tax.

The Chandigarh municipal corporation has issued recovery notices, asking the defaulters to clear the dues or face the music.

Some of prominent names to feature in the list included ICS Hotels Private Limited, Jagat Theatre, St John High School Sector 26, Tender Heart School Sector 33, SD Sr Sec School Sector 24, Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR).

As per MC records, these properties owe over Rs 3.22 crore in property tax. They didn’t pay their taxes during the rebate period. Rajasthan Bhawan, located in Sector 33 and Sector 34-based petrol pump are also in the MC’s list of defaulters comprising commercial properties.

The list also included coal depots in Sectors 10, 22, 28 and 29, several shop-cum-offices (SCOs), shop-cum-flat (SCFs) and some other shops. These properties are located across the city, including northern and southern sectors and areas in Manimajra.

“Though these defaulters were given the opportunity to pay the tax, they didn’t do so, forcing the municipal corporation to issue notices. If these defaulters don’t pay the dues in a stipulated time, strict action will be taken against them. If anybody has any query or doubt, they can visit the department concerned for clarification,” sources in the MC said.
