PANCHKULA: The Panchkula municipal corporation started issuing notices to defaulters of property tax who falls in the slab between Rs 10,000 to Rs 8 crore, from Wednesday.
The MC records revealed that there are around 16,000 defaulters. Sources said the MC collected Rs 3 crore as property tax last year out of Rs 185 crore tax pendency.
For the first time, the MC introduced online payment for property tax to make it easy for residents so that they don’t have to stand in long queues for depositing the tax.

She said four teams were constituted by the MC which would sought objections raised by defaulters of property tax.
“The MC has already tied up with banks to provide gateway for property tax payment which will also set up 11 digital payment machines at Sector 4,” she said.
As per the MC officials, there are around 250 government offices which have not paid property tax to the MC in the past.
The MC commissioner has issued instructions to the tax department that they should start sending notices to defaulters from Wednesday and from Monday normal property tax bills should be sent to residents as per their area.
Under Section 130 of the Haryana Municipal Corporation Act, 1994, a notice is issued to defaulter in case he fails to deposit the tax which states that “You are informed that in case you fail to pay property tax by February 21, the property mentioned in paragraph (1) of this order will be attached and sold through public auction.” The notice also states, “It is a final notice as number of notices have been sent in the past to the office concerned.”
A notice, which was already sent to the office concerned, is available on the website of the municipal corporation Panchkula. Despite repeated requests, the tax has not been paid and the corporation is left with no option except to seal the premises and further fix the auction of the property for sale as per the provision of the Haryana Municipal Corporation Act, 1994.
