Hubballi-Dharwad civic body drive to trace property tax evaders

Dated on: Wednesday 12th April 2023

Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation has initiated a campaign to track down and collect property tax evaders as well as penalties. There are various open spots in HDMC's 82 wards that lack sufficient fencing and have become waste dumps. Many of the owners of these properties who do not live in the Twin Cities have not paid property taxes in years. Some people have built houses illegally and are just paying taxes on the open spaces. So far, HDMC has identified 3,614 such properties and made procedures to reclaim unpaid taxes totaling Rs 22 million. According to HDMC commissioner B Gopalkrishna, Rs 6 crore has been received thus far.
