The Panvel civic body has started compiling data of property owners to collect property tax. The housing societies have been served with forms to fill in property related information such as property owner’s name , shop’s name , tenant and rent details, size of flat and contact details.
The PCMC general body has already approved a proposal to impose property tax .
Many residents of Cidco and grampanchayat area are of the view that PCMC property tax will lead to manifold increase of tax burden. However , the poor quality of PCMC services in the last two and half years is a concern say residents.
