TRICHY: Intensifying tax and tax arrears collection drive, the Trichy Corporation has terminated water connections to 105 buildings. Property tax, water charge and professional tax contribute a lion’s share to the corporation’s revenue.
The civic body has collected only Rs 65 crore out of Rs 222 crore this year. “We will continue terminating water connections to the buildings that have not paid their tax dues.
Further, top defaulters shying away from paying their taxes shall be named on the official website of the civic body by the March end,” an official source with civic body said.
