The action was taken after owners ignored notices sent by the civic body.
Out of the properties, two are shops and the rest commercial booths. “All these properties had to pay between Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000 tax. The owners had been issued recovery and sealing notices. As they paid no heed to them, the authority was left with no option but to seal the properties,” sources said.
A team of the MC visited Industrial Area, Phase II in the evening and sealed the buildings. The team also took help of the Chandigarh Police to conduct the exercise.
Sources in the MC said as the list of tax defaulters is growing, senior officers have issued orders to start sealing the building. “A detailed list of tax defaulters has been prepared. In the coming days, more commercial buildings will be sealed as many have been sent notices, giving them 15 days to deposit the tax or face action,” an official said.
