Bhubaneswar: Holding tax violators will no longer have access to the basic amenities as the BMC will now disconnect water and electricity supplies from today.
BMC’s North Zonal Deputy Commission has already written to CESU and WATCO regarding the same.
The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued notices to a total of 14 violators in the BMC’s North Zone for not paying holding tax.
Last year, BMC collected a total of Rs 70 crore from holding tax violators and a total of Rs 16 crore was collected by the end of January. In February, the BMC hired ten transgender and provided with certificates to collect arrears tax.
