Why is the measurement of property tax being done again and again in Shalimar Mall itself? Why is the speaking order of Panchkula Municipal Corporation Commissioner not being followed on the instructions of Divisional Commissioner, Ambala? Why are they being harassed again and again in the name of property tax?
Shalimar Mall, Sector 5 managing director R. K. Agarwal asked this question to the Municipal Corporation on Thursday in the Press Club organized at Chandigarh Press Club, Sector 27. He said that he has been paying the highest property tax in Panchkula. Despite this, he is being maligned by repeatedly giving notices or calling him the biggest defaulter.
In October 2013, Haryana Government had notified about property tax. The Managing Director says that he had deposited property tax of Rs 33 lakh in Shalimar Mall in 2013-14. In 2017, he was given a notice by the corporation of property tax dues of Rs 4.90 crore. He challenged this notice in the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
