As many as six commercial properties at Bowenpally in Secunderabad Cantonment were sealed by the SCB tax department for non-payment of property tax.
The drive to seal the commercial properties began on Monday. According to SCB tax department superintendent, K V Ramana Rao, the tax wing had issued notices to the commercial property owners and gave them six months time to pay the tax.
“On day-one, we sealed six commercial units for defaulting nearly Rs eight lakh,” Rao said.
Meanwhile, few defaulters rushed to SCB main office and paid the pending property tax to the tune of Rs three to five lakh. “Defaulters have to pay their pending property tax immediately to avoid sealing and heavy penalties,” urged the SCB official.
