Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has announced that the property tax should be paid by all the residents of the private colonies that are being taken over by it, without any default.
The property tax paid by the residents is one of the biggest sources of revenue, therefore, the taking over process of these colonies will only be carried out if every resident pays property tax with no outstanding dues.
However, Residents Welfare Association (RWA) will be paid an amount of Rs.25000 per month to look after the community center and also a separate amount of Rs.3 per square meter for maintenance of parks in the area. All the RWAs in the city will come under the same rule from now on.
The entire amount of revenue that will be earned will be given to RWA and an extra Rs.25000 will be given for maintenance. But if there are more than one RWA in the area, they will have to discuss it among themselves to decide which RWA will take the charge for maintenance. However, if they are not able to reach a decision, MCG will only have to maintain it.
MCG is also planning to make residents pay the sanitation charges. Currently, the residents are not paying any money for the garbage collection, but they may have to pay in the future.
