Bhubaneswar, Mar 14: Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has not issued any notice to seal the houses of the holding tax defaulters.
The BMC Deputy Commissioner (Revenue) Srimanta Mishra on Sunday said that the BMC has issued no notice to seal houses of holding tax defaulters.
The BMC has issued a letter to all the Zonal Deputy Commissioners and Ward Officers to collect taxes like every year. It is a routine letter directing them to fulfil the target, Mishra said.
Notably, BMC has hiked the holding tax up to 17.5 per cent of the bench mark value of the land in 2019, which has irked Bhubaneswarites.
