“The officials from these two tax departments will function on all weekends till the end of the financial year, which is March 31. This will help citizens who are working during the week. With this move, they will be able to visit the local municipal office and clear their dues,’ said, Deputy Municipal Commissioner Omprakash Divate.
Deputy Municipal Commissioner added that the water and property tax departments will stay open from 10 am to 5:45 pm on all Saturdays and public holidays and the timing of Sunday will be from 10.30 to 2 pm. Although, the office will be shut on 2nd March 2018, on account of Holi.
The previous year, the central government had demonetized the high-value currency which considerably increased the collection of property and water tax.
The tax collection in any department is one of the vital routes of the fund for a particular department.
