PROPOSAL TO RENT OUT APMC PREMISE TO ACB REJECTED
The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation’s standing committee on Thursday rejected a proposal put forth by the administration seeking approval to rent out its premises in the central facility building at APMC market to the Navi Mumbai Anti-Corruption Bureau for a period of three years.
The resolution proposed a rent of Rs9,716 per month would be collected from the Navi Mumbai Anti-Corruption Bureau for leasing out the 800 sqft premises.
The members, however, objected to the year of the ready reckoner rate used and also raised questions on who will pay the property tax.
Corporator Ravindra Ithape said, “The rate used to calculate the rent of the premises is based on the 2009 ready reckoner rate. It should be based on the 2015 ready reckoner rates instead. This will ensure increased revenue to the civic body.”
The members also stated there was no clarity on the property tax payment.
The standing committee chairperson Netra Shirke then asked the administration to reconsider the proposal in view of the objections raised before placing it once again before the committee.
Deputy municipal commissioner Ankush Chavan said, “We will consider the objections and suggestions of the members and also take into account the present ready reckoner rates and then present a new proposal to the committee soon.”
