The PMC had launched mission Rs120 crore in mid February to achieve the target by March-end. Nearly 50 different teams were formed for te purpose.
However, it managed to collect Rs105 crore till the end. PMC commissioner Animesh Kumar Parashar said apart from Rs105 crore from holding tax, they have also generated Rs15 crore from properties under Patna Regional Development Authority, which includes rent from shops owned by them.
