Drum-beating at Prestige Towers

Bangalore:Jan 23, 2013 DH News Service

Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), on Tuesday, carried out drum beating drive at the Prestige Towers on Residency Road to recover property tax revenue to the tune of Rs 1.75 crore.

Continuing its drive to target high profile tax defaulters, Palike officers, accompanied by drum-beaters, reached the Prestige Towers and beat the drums for nearly two hours. However, no one turned up to pay the tax.

The owners approached the Palike revenue officers, requesting that they will ask the owner to pay the requisite amount.

The Palike officers said Prestige Towers, which has 157 offices, has not paid taxes since 2008-09. Notices to the owner could not fetch any revenue, compelling thePalike to beat the drums in front of the complex. Since no revenue was collected from the owner of the property, the Palike has decided to beat the drums on Wednesday also.
