KOLKATA: With an eye on boosting revenue, the Howrah Municipal Corporation announced a partial waiver for property and commercial tax on March 4. Under the waiver scheme, no penalty or interest need to be paid.

The KMC has already enforced such a scheme and has benefited greatly, said Howrah mayor Rathin Chakraborty. He said the last board, controlled by the Left Front, bungled in tax collection, resulting in tax default of around Rs 200 crore. “The state is supporting us, but we must be self-sufficient. The tax outstanding will be collected without burdening civilians,” the mayor added.
