Pune: Property tax arrears on hold for now | Pune News

PUNE: Citizens will not have to pay PMC the additional property tax till the state takes a call, a civic official said after a meeting at the urban development department on Wednesday.
“A delegation of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) officials and BJP leaders attended the meeting. The drive to recover arrears of the 40% property tax discount will not be started now. The demand to introduce the tax discount will be considered only after a nod from the CM’s office,” said former leader of the House in PMC and BJP leader Ganesh Bidkar.
A PMC official said, “The next course of action will be based on the directive from the urban development department’s directive.” The special property tax discount was started in 1970. Central auditors termed the discount as illegal and the state scrapped that in August 2019. The PMC in August this year sent SMSs to nearly 60,000 property owners, asking them to pay the arrears with retrospective effect from 2019.
