No house tax if AAP wins civic polls: Kejriwal

No house tax if AAP wins civic polls: Kejriwal
In a major poll promise, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said house tax will be abolished and pending dues will be waived if Aam Aadmi Party emerges victorious in the municipal elections.

Calling current house tax structure as “draconian”, the AAP chief said that it has become a source of widespread corruption for municipal councillors and officers in all three civic bodies where BJP is in power for the last 10 years.

There are an estimated nine lakh property tax payers in the city and about Rs 600 crore in revenue is earned annually by the three civic bodies, according to official sources.
