Looks like now TMC too wants to get its own share of pie from the rapid illegal constructions in Thane. TMC has decided to collect three times the tax from illegal constructions in the city. It maybe recalled that earlier TMC used to collect same amount of taxes from legal as well as illegal constructions. The only difference was that legal constructions were given permit receipts while illegal constructions were given non-permit receipts. But with TMC’s decision, illegal constructions would now have to pay three times more than what they were paying in the form of tax. Illegal constructions would be charged twice the amount as penalty, apart from their regular tax which is Rs 1000 which illegal constructions would cough up Rs 3000 for tax.
