Chennai Corporation pushing property tax collection drive

Chennai Corporation is in the overdrive mood as far as property tax collection is concerned. Its local area officials have been working extended hours to knock on the doors of people who have not paid their tax on time.

Local officials of the Revenue Dept. of the civic body said that tax defaulters’ list is posted online at the Corporation’s web site.

But there were plaints from people that the data was showing up defaults in cases where tax was paid; so the zone officers have been asked to relook at the defaulters’ list.

Tax can be paid online and at the zone offices. Officials nowadays rarely do door-to-door collection.
