The Shimla Municipal Corporation is planning to take garbage collection charges from defaulters along with the property tax. A plan is being chalked out and the proposal is expected to be implemented from the next financial year.

Municipal Commissioner, Shimla Municipal Corporation, Bhupinder Attri said amendments in the Municipal Corporation Act will be made to club the two bills.

The corporation issues garbage collection bills to about 60,000 residents of the town on a monthly basis.
