East Municipal Corporation has attached more than 6,000 properties for non-payment of property tax. Sale and purchase of these properties have been barred and notices dispatched to the sub-registrar office, asking officials not to register sale or purchase deeds of these properties.
The civic agency has asked owners to clear property tax pending till March 2004. The total arrears is Rs 57 crore, up to March 31, 2004, in about 6,000 properties.
Municipal Commissioner S S Yadav confirmed that approximately 6,000 properties under Shahdara South Zone of the East corporation's Property Tax department have been attached. "Coercive actions are being taken on a day-to-day basis against defaulters," the commissioner said.
"In pursuance of warrants of attachment issued by the competent authority, it is to prohibit and restrain until further orders from transferring or charging the property specified in the schedule by sale, gift or otherwise and all other persons are restrained by same orders from purchase, gift or otherwise," reads the notice sent to property owners.
Unless owners pay up, the property would be sold through a public auction. "As a result thereof, Warrant of Distress for attachment of properties of the defaulters have been issued. In some cases, Attachment of Properties of defaulters is being done and a copy of the attachment orders are being sent to the Sub Registrar, Geeta Colony, Delhi, for not doing registration of sale/purchase of those properties which have been attached by this office," Press and Information director Yogendra Mann said.
