MYSORE: Commercial property owners in Mysore on Monday paid a part of property tax after authorities warned of action against defaulters.

Mysore City Corporation's taxation and finance standing committee chief B L Byrappa said that Mall of Mysore, a commercial complex, and Exhibition Authority of Karnataka (EAK) issued cheques of Rs 20 lakh and Rs 5 lakh, respectively, to MCC on Monday. They owe Rs 80 lakh and Rs 17 lakh property tax to the civic body.

The property owners and guardians have given post-dated cheques for the remaining amount, which will be drawn in equal installment in the next two months. Mall of Mysore, which has multiplexes and shops, has to pay Rs 80 lakh tax every year, while EAK has to pay Rs 17 lakh tax. Both had defaulted.

"A fortnight ago, Mall of Mysore owner had paid 25% of tax. On Monday, he paid another 25%," said Byrappa.

Even Garuda Mall, which owed Rs 3 crore tax, has paid Rs 37 lakh tax, and promised to pay the rest in equal installments once in three months, the committee chief added.

Meanwhile, the committee held a meeting with major water consumers who owe over Rs 20 lakh tax to MCC on Monday. Byrappa said that they will be forced to disconnect water supply if they failed to pay the dues.
