The group on Wednesday wrote a letter to the Pune Municipal Corporation. “If the scheme is going to benefit the defaulters but fails to discipline them, it should then be scrapped,” the activists’ group stated. PUNE: Civic activists have sought introduction of terms and conditions to restrict any misuse of the municipal corporation’s amnesty scheme for property tax defaulters. “People who have availed of the benefits of this scheme should not be a part of such initiative again,” said Vivek Velankar of citizens’ group Sajag Nagrik Manch. The group on Wednesday wrote a letter to the Pune Municipal Corporation. “If the scheme is going to benefit the defaulters but fails to discipline them, it should then be scrapped,” the activists’ group stated. The PMC had introduced the amnesty scheme for property tax defaulters. In accordance with the scheme, 75% waiver on the penalty would be given to the defaulters if they paid the levy as part of the initiative. “Many defaulters have become habitual offenders due to such schemes. The PMC’s revenue collection is adversely impacted in the long run, when amnesty and discount in the penalty are promoted. The PMC is hampering the regular income generation,” said Vijay Kumbhar of Surajya Sangharsh Samiti, another citizens’ group.
