Looking at the varied amount of taxes being paid by the residents of Kharghar, vigilant citizens in the node have come forward to register ‘Kharghar Housing Federation Society’. This federation disapproves of many taxes collected from housing societies. At Kharghar node certain proactive and vigilant citizens who also happen to be the chairmen and secretaries of their respective housing societies held a meet in order to resolve the issue of property tax in Kharghar. Kharghar comes in Raigad district and not under the jurisdiction of NMMC. Every year housing societies here have to pay panchayat tax to Gram Panchayat, Non Agricultural tax to Tehsildar and Service tax to CIDCO. Over a period of time panchayat taxes have shot up, which has become a cause of concern for Kharghar housing societies. Aware citizens are fretful that panchayats do not play any concrete role in their development then why should they pay taxes. In order to strengthen the lobby against the panchayat taxes, the Ad-hoc Committee members have passed a resolution for the registration of ‘Kharghar Housing Federation Society’. This society will not only explore the possibilities of canceling panchayat rents altogether but will also take other concerning legal issues to authorities.
