KHARGHAR GRAMPANCHAYAT SAYS WILLING TO LISTEN TO RESIDENTS TAX GRIEVANCES BUT NO ONE HAS COMPLAINED YET

tax-collection-1Residents of Kharghar have formed the ‘Kharghar Housing Federation Society’ to fight against the taxes they have to pay from the panchayat to CIDCO. The residents demand that since the Panchayat have little role to play in the services being given to Kharghar residents, they should stop collecting the taxes. However according to the Kharghar Grampanchayat, they are ready to deliberate on this subject with the residents provided someone approaches them with their grievances. Last week citizens of Kharghar met with the aim of resolving the issue of property tax in their node. Falling in Raigad district, residents of Kharghar 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. They believe that since the panchayat has a limited role to play in Kharghar node, they should stop collecting taxes. Reacting to the protest by Kharghar residents on collection of property tax by the Kharghar Grampanchayat, the Deputy Sarpanch Vishnu Patil said that they haven’t received any complaints from the residents yet. He added that if they have any complaint, then a hearing would be held and even after the hearing they are not satisfied then they can even approach the Panchayat committee.
