Revenue mop up is top priority, says mayor

Bangalore, Sept 14, 2013, DHNS :

Mobilising revenue for the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike tops the agenda of Mayor B S Sathyanarayana.

After ten days of review meetings which concluded on Thursday, the Mayor said on Friday that he would focus on mopping up revenue through property taxes, advertisements and optical fibre cables besides grants from Union and State governments.

Briefing reporters, the mayor, said he has directed the officials to identify all advertisements in public places and submit a detailed report by the month end.

“Our revenue from advertisements is much lower than our expectation. We need to improve it,” he noted. Further, officers have been directed to conduct a door-to-door survey to identify those who have defaulted on payment of property taxes.

Elaborating on his plans to make the City cleaner, he said the BBMP will carry out intensive cleanliness drive on Monday of every month at KR Market, for which students of eight schools and colleges will be roped in.

The schools and colleges in the vicinity have agreed to send their students for cleaning the market. Likewise, intensive cleaning drive would be carried out in eight wards every week. The wards would be selected through a draw of lots.

The mayor said the corporation has collected Rs 24,000 as fine from people dumping waste at public places in the last two weeks.
