MLA Nagendra launches MCC’s Tax Collection Drive at K.G. Koppal

October 19, 2020

Mysore/Mysuru: As part of ‘Palikeya Nade Janateya Kade,’ an initiative of the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) for collecting tax dues from property owners at their door step, Chamaraja MLA L. Nagendra on Thursday launched the initiative at Chamundeshwari Temple premises in K.G. Koppal (Ward 42), coming under MCC   Zonal Office-3.

Speaking on the occasion, Nagendra said that there are 3,275 properties in the area, out of which owners of 1,616 properties have paid Rs. 1,79,63,708  as tax in total, while the owners of the remaining 1,659 properties have to pay tax dues of Rs. 2.56 crore.

Pointing out that developmental works have been hit due to pending property tax dues, Nagendra, while underlining the need for every property owner to pay tax, said that the drive will go on for the next three months, barring Government and public holidays.

Lauding the MCC’s initiative of marching to the door steps of the people, who seem to be scared to come out in the wake of the rampant spread of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, Nagendra sought the co-operation of property owners in K.G. Koppal to ensure the success of the MCC’s unique drive, which has been launched for the first time.

He further said that property owners can pay tax at Chamundeshwari Temple premises, close to Chamarajapuram Railway Station, daily from 10 am to 4 pm on all working days.

MCC Zone-3 Assistant Commissioner Satyamurthy said that the MCC staff will sit on a stir (Mat Movement) in front of the houses of all defaulting property owners, who fail to pay their tax dues even during this drive. Also, the water, electricity and sanitary connections in respect of the properties of defaulting owners will be cut off and measures will be taken for attachment of properties, he added.

Corporator Shivakumar, former Mayor R. Lingappa and other officials were present.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “MLA Nagendra launches MCC’s Tax Collection Drive at K.G. Koppal”

    PLEASE do not publish pictures if people in the picture are not wearing a mask during this health crisis. SOM is doing a dis-service by including pictures of irresponsible and careless people who either dont care or dont know about stopping the spread of COVID.

    A picture is used in an article to draw attention to the matter being discussed. The first thing readers of the newspaper notice before they start reading the article is the picture that preceeds the text. The human mind is drawn to the visual quicker than the text that is more mundane. By including pictures of people who are blatantly disregarding the need to stay safe, the newspaper is unwittingly sending the message that it ‘may be okay if you dont wear a mask, though everyone should be wearing a mask when/if interacting with another person’.

    On the other hand…If one were to look at these pictures and realize how irresponsible the people they have given power/kudos/ responsibility/respect are indeed careless/reckless and dont follow simple guidelines during a health crisis, maybe showing them and their apathy in these pictures is a good way for the public to realise how their trust and respect are misplaced.

    Seven (7) people in the picture and ONLY ONE (1) person is wearing a mask properly. The second person with a mask has it almost coming off the nose and could be excused as some masks tend to move and she may generally be vigilant to do the right thing. FIVE (5) of the rest in the picture clearly are not setting the right example for current safety requirements.
