The Municipal Corporation officials claimed that the SMS alert service for the property tax payers initiated by the civic body was getting a good response.

Employees at the Citizen Facilitation Centre (CFC) were sending short messages on the mobile phones of tax payers to pay property tax. MC Joint Commissioner Hardeep Singh said: “Nearly 48,000 SMS have been sent by the department so far. The MC is getting a good respond from this effort. In the short message, tax payers are being asked to deposit tax online at mseva.lgpunjab.gov.in.”

During the current fiscal from April 1 to 24, the MC has collected more than Rs 3 crore property tax, whereas in the last fiscal only Rs 1.20 crore was collected as property tax.
