The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) took stern action against the property tax defaulters in the Narela zone and attached 18 godowns in the Jindpur area and four commercial properties in Begumpur Wednesday.
The property tax department of the corporation is fully committed to recovering the dues of property tax from the property tax defaulters, in this regard, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi has taken this action under section 158 of the Delhi Municipal Corporation (DMC) Act, 1957, said a senior official of the MCD.
