New Delhi: Tak­ing ac­tion against prop­erty tax de­fault­ers, North Delhi Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion on Wed­nes­day at­tached six mo­tels and re­sorts at GT Kar­nal Road.

An amount of Rs 4.7 crore is pend­ing against them and un­less it is paid, no com­mer­cial ac­tiv­ity will be al­lowed, said a north cor­po­ra­tion of­fi­cial. The ac­tion was taken by the as­sess­ment and col­lec­tion de­part­ment, Narela Zone.

The to­tal value de­manded from th­ese prop­er­ties in­clude prin­ci­pal amount as well as penalty from the date of sub­mit­ting in­cor­rect in­for­ma­tion.

Of­fi­cials claimed that the de­fault­ers were iden­ti­fied dur­ing the cor­po­ra­tion’s on­go­ing scru­tiny drive, which will con­tinue in fu­ture as well.

“Th­ese prop­er­ties in­cluded Syd­ney Grand and Re­treat re­sort, Mo­tel mantrum, Mo­tel Je­han, Zeenat Mo­tel and Mo­tel Je­han. The ar­rears were ac­cu­mu­lated against them as they were mak­ing pay­ment of prop­erty tax un­der cat­e­gory H of unit area method un­der self-as­sess­ment scheme. Whereas, they were run­ning com­mer­cial ventures and were sup­posed to as­sess prop­erty tax at the high­est value in the vicin­ity, which is cat­e­gory G,” said a se­nior cor­po­ra­tion of­fi­cial.

“We got to know about th­ese cases through their on­line and man­ual trans­ac­tions,” said the of­fi­cial. New Delhi: Mother Dairy has hiked the price of cow milk by Rs 2 per litre from Fri­day in NCR. The cow milk vari­ant will now be avail­able at Rs 44 per litre.

Ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial, the prices of the cow milk vari­ant ef­fec­tive from Septem­ber 6 are Rs 23 for 500ml pack and Rs 44 for the one-litre pack. The prices of other milk vari­ants re­main un­changed.

The lead­ing milk sup­plier said that the re­tail price of cow milk has been hiked since the com­pany is shelling out more to the farm­ers to pro­cure raw milk.

With Mother Dairy in­creas­ing prices, it is likely that other milk sup­pli­ers such as Amul and Parag will also fol­low suit.
