The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) assessment department will organize camps at the housing complexes and high-rises for mutation of flats.
The KMC brass has taken the decision following requests from flat owners across the city who face harassment while trying to do mutation of their properties.
A resident of Cossipore, who is a flat owner of a housing complex, on Friday called up the mayor during an interactive session and requested to arrange for mutation of his flat. Hakim asked a senior KMC revenue department official to arrange a camp at the Cossipore housing estate and help complete the mutation process of over 60 applicants.
The inspectors of the KMC assessment department were asked to conduct a survey of flats across the city that have remained unassessed. “We need to trace the unassessed flats and help flat owners mutate their properties without hassles. The inspectors can’t shrug off their duties as that will land the flat or house owners in trouble,” said the mayor.
Some of the areas where the KMC assessment department wants to conduct camps include large areas off EM Bypass, parts of Jadavpur, Tollygunge and the Behala-Joka belt.
