Ahmadabad Municipal Corporation seals over 900 properties

With sealing drive tightening its hold on the property tax defaulters, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has sealed more than 900 commercial units. The incident has taken place in a couple of days because many of the shop owners have failed to pay their property tax dues and trying to get away with the accumulating black money. Recently, AMC has sealed around 200 shops and offices because the owners failed to pay their property tax. Indeed, maximum amount of shops have been sealed in the areas of new west and north zone.

Many of them include restaurants and garment shops present in malls as well as shopping complexes in the respective areas mentioned above. In this regard, the officials from AMC have stated that they sealed shops in Shukun Mall, Isckon Mall, and various other shopping complexes because of the owners’ inability to pay property tax. They have further stated that the sealing drive will be extended to other areas in the wake of catching tax defaulters. Indeed, the AMC officials are bent upon mopping property tax collection; so that the amount can be utilized in favor of people’s development. This is one single step that has been keeping people on their toes and enabling them to clear their dues as soon as possible.

Another thing that came into the limelight is that AMC is extending incentives to the property owners, who are paying their tax well on time or clearing their dues. However, despite of repeated notice by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, there are many other commercial property owners that have not paid their tax. And this is enabling the authorities to take strict action against them in terms of sealing their shops. Also stating, the sealing drive is not just limited to Ahmedabad; rather it has extended throughout India in the wake of putting a stopover black money.

The sole purpose of initiating the sealing drive by AMC is to catch the tax defaulters and enable them to pay off the dues within stipulated time period. This step has been taken by the government to ensure that authenticated tax collection takes place and the property owners should get aware of their responsibility. Moreover, the step taken by the government is welcomed by the many of the property owners and even unaccepted by others. So, it is an alarming situation for the property owners and they should pay their property tax dues to avoid sealing.
