    NASHIK: The land records department will start a survey of gaothan areas with the help of drones in December and that Sinnar taluka will be the first to be covered, S Chokalingam, settlement commissioner of Maharashtra, said here on Monday.

    “The survey is one of the major challenges taken up by the state government. It will ensure authentic property document for the residents of villages and drones will help expedited the process,” said the official.

    Chokalingam, who was in the city on his way to Aurangabad, held a meeting with district collector Suraj Mandhare, zilla parishad CEO Leena Bansod and other officials.
    The British had conducted such land surveys in the country but had ignored villages or Gaothan areas, leaving the inhabitants without any property cards or documents.

    “Through the forthcoming drone survey, we will now provide city survey number to every property The survey is needed to define the boundaries,” said Chokalingam. The officer said rural department officials with the help of villagers will demarcate boundaries of properties and gaothan with ‘chuna’ (lime).

      Amnesty scheme fails to get defaulters to clear tax dues

      Tushar Pawar | TNN | Nov 25, 2020, 04:26 IST




      Nashik: The amnesty scheme floated by the civic administration for property tax defaulters from November 1 has failed to get the desired response. So far, the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC), whose property tax collection has been hit following the Covid-19 outbreak in March, has managed to collect only Rs 4 crore.

      The property tax collection has declined by 35% to Rs 67.22 crore between April 1 and November 23 of the current financial year against Rs 102 crore revenue collected during the corresponding period last fiscal.

      Civic officials said around 5,000 tax defaulters availed the amnesty scheme and got a rebate of Rs 48.82 lakh. Tax defaulters availing the amnesty scheme, which will remain in effect till February 2021, get rebate in penalty, warrant and notice fees if they clear all their tax dues in one instalment.

      The NMC recovers 2% fine per month on tax dues from the last day of paying taxes. Moreover, it also recovers expenses of notices and warrants issued to the tax defaulters. As per the amnesty scheme, defaulters will get 75% rebate if they clear their tax dues by January 15, 50% if they pay between January 16 and February 15 and 25% rebate if they pay between February 16 and 28.

      The NMC has already started sending notices to the tax defaulters asking them to avail the amnesty scheme and clear their dues. The civic administration has warned of taking strict action, including confiscation of properties, in March next year if the defaulters fail to clear their tax dues.

        Women SHGs to recover tax dues from villagers

        Abhilash Botekar | TNN | Dec 3, 2020, 04:44 IST





        Nashik: Women self-help group members will soon knock on the doors of villagers in Amalner taluka of Jalgaon district to collect pending dues of house and water cess.

        The move comes after 90% of the residents in 119 villages have not paid their taxes for many years. The gram panchayats are, therefore, facing a financial crunch to carry out the developmental work in the villages.

        Block development officer of Amalner, Sandeep Wayal, has launched the initiative of roping in the women SHGs for the recovery process. The bigger villages have around 600 to 800 houses and smaller villages have around 300 to 400 houses.

        “House cess and water cess are the major source of income of any gram panchayat. For various reasons, including drought and scarcity, the cess has not been paid by the villagers. We have therefore decided to rope in the women SHGs, who will go door to door, to collect the cess that has been pending for last several years,” said Wayal.

        B N Patil, CEO of Jalgaon Zilla Parishad, said, “Since our gram panchayat employees are busy implementing various government schemes, they hardly find time to conduct recovery of dues. Once women SHGs start collecting the dues, we are confident that the situation will turn around in a year’s time.

        Wayal said that there are more than 1,000 SHGs across the taluka and the process of involving them in the recovery would be transparent. The primary criteria for the SHGs willing to participate is that they should be registered with the panchayat samiti and secondly, none of their members should have any outstanding amount with the gram panchayat.

        The officer said that the SHGs would be allotted a certain cluster of houses from where they will have to collect the dues. They would get 10% of the collection of dues that were outstanding till last year and 5% of the collection of dues of this year.

        The women SHGs are also upbeat on the new system being introduced by the panchayat samiti. “Not only will the SHGs get certain amount for their contribution in collection of cess, but it will also help them develop contacts for their business. This will also enrich our knowledge of government working and perhaps look for better opportunities to collect dues for various government departments,” said Suvarna Mahajan of Khandesh Mahila Bachat Gat from Amalner.

          HC tells Nashik smart corp to stop work on new township


          Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Dec 17, 2020, 14:01 IST

          Representative image

          NASHIK: The Bombay high court has restricted the Nashik Municipal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (NMSCDCL) from carrying out any activities related to the new township project at Makhmalabad on the outskirts of the city. The division bench comprising Justices S J Kathawalla and R I Chagla stopped the state government and the corporation from proceeding with the project till the next hearing on February 9, 2021.

          Under its smart city project, the NMSCDCL has planned to set up a township at Makhmalabad. The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) is the planning authority for the project.

          The plan was to acquire over 753 acres from landowners in Makhmalabad to set up infrastructure like road etc. The cost of the project is over Rs 300 crore.

          A group of 28 landowners, including some farmers from Makhmalabad, had moved the high court demanding that the project be scrapped.

          As per the draft of the township project, farmers will get 55% of the land they give for integrated development while the infrastructure will be developed on the remaining 45% of the land. The farmers will get the developed plots equipped with modern amenities.

          “As per the norms, the draft of the township should be declared within nine months from the date of declaration. Accordingly, it was expected to be declared on June 9. However, the authority delayed the project even after a three-month extension by the state government. This is in violation of the norms. Therefore, we want this project to be scrapped,” said Pranil Sonawane, the petitioners’ lawyer.

          “Farmers are also against the project as their agricultural activities would be affected. We had insisted on implementing this project on the outskirts on non-irrigated land,” said Suresh Patil, one of the landowners.

          Prakash Thavil, the CEO of NMSCDCL, said a legal opinion would be sought. “We have already submitted the draft development plan (DP) of the township project to the state government and the project is pending approval,” said Thavil.

            200 building plan proposals rejected over new DCPR

            Tushar Pawar | TNN | Dec 29, 2020, 04:53 IST



            Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has rejected 200 proposals of residential building plans and asked the applicants to resubmit the proposals as per the new Unified Development Control and Promotion Regulations (DCPR) that came into effect on December 2.

            The NMC approved around 10 proposals of building plans so far as per the new unified DCPR, which has been introduced by the state government for all municipal corporations, barring Mumbai.

            All municipal corporations, councils and nagar panchayats (excluding Mumbai) have been brought under the ambit of the new rule. The state government has come with the new rule to bring uniformity in the width of roads, size of rooms, etc.

            “Around 200 proposals for residential buildings were submitted as per the old DCPR rules. We have rejected all of them,” said R Aher, executive engineer, town planning department of NMC.

            Earlier, the NMC had developed auto DCPR for online submission and approval of building plans for builders. With the implementation of the new unified DCPR, the NMC has started the process offline, and is waiting for software from the urban development department.

            Meanwhile, the state town planning department has organised a workshop for officials of the town planning department from all municipal corporations, councils and nagar panchayats in the division on the implementation of the new unified DCPR.

              Nashik: SP instructs landlords to keep record of tenants

              Patil said of late, may tourists are choosing to book houses on rent in the rural areas than booking rooms in hotels. However, this trend can also be used by the anti-social elements.
              NASHIK: Superintendent of police Sachin Patil has told landlords who rent out their properties to tourists to ensure that they keep a record of the tenants and show the same when sought by the police.

              Police patils across the rural districts have been instructed to keep an eye on landlords renting properties to tourists.

              Patil said of late, may tourists are choosing to book houses on rent in the rural areas than booking rooms in hotels. However, this trend can also be used by the anti-social elements.

              The aim is to ensure the anti-social elements do not reside in such properties to hide from the police. Hence, we have alerted all the police patils to keep a check on such properties in their respective villages and inform the police if found suspicious, said the SP.

              The landlords should ensure they check the authentic identity card of the guests renting their property. Their name, address, cellphone number, etc should be taken by the landlords.

              Further, the landlords should set up CCTV cameras on such properties and keep the footages for at least 30 days.

              Many people in Igatpuri, Ghoti, Wadivarhe, etc have farms in scenic locations. At the same time, the landlords have also set up tents with all the necessary facilities to attract customers.

              The police have decided to take action against landlords who do not keep a record of their guests as these places should not serve as safe space for criminals, said Patil.

                  NMC to action against water tax defaulters from Feb 1

                  Tushar Pawar | TNN | Jan 15, 2021, 04:55 IST

                  Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to stop the water supply to the water tax defaulters from February 1, if they do not pay their dues by January 31.
                  Nashik municipal commissioner Kailas Jadhav has directed officials to take action against water tax defaulters.

                  NMC has set the water tax collection target of Rs 132 crore, including current demand and water tax dues, for the current financial year. But NMC could only collect Rs 24.5 crore so far.

                  The civic chief told TOI there has been a drop in the revenue collected through various taxes due to the outbreak of Covid. Hence, the directives have been given.

                  “In the first phase, water connection of the big commercial and residential water tax defaulters with tax dues of Rs 25,000 and above will be stopped. The drive will begin from February 1,” said Jadhav.

                  He said an amnesty scheme has been introduced for the property tax defaulters from November 1, which is yielding good response from the defaulters.

                  “We have waived penalty of Rs 4 crore to 35,000 taxpayers, who have cleared their property tax dues so far. We have collected property tax dues amounting to Rs 20 crore since November 1. I appeal to the taxpayers to take benefit of the amnesty scheme by clearing their property tax dues,” said Jadhav.

                  NMC has 1.96 lakh water connections and 4.5 lakh property taxpayers across the six divisions of the NMC.

                    NMC conducts spl drive to clean Nandini river


                    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Jan 18, 2021, 04:30 IST





                    Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) on Sunday carried out a drive to clean the Nandini river near Untwadi area and collected over 10 quintal of garbage.

                    A civic team comprising 15 employees participated in the drive and also cleaned the area near Untwadi bridge where the tea stalls and vendors dump their daily waste.

                    “We have been providing garbage collection vans (ghantagadis) for door-to-door waste collection in the area. Nevertheless, some erring residents from nearby localities are throwing household waste into the river,” Kalpana Kute, director of solid waste department of the NMC, said.

                    “The residents are expected to use the services of the garbage collection vans. We are also keeping an eye on such people who are throwing the garbage in the river or on the banks. What we have found that the activity is carried out around midnight,” he added.

                    The waste collected by the civic body during the drive was sent to the NMC’s compost plant based on the outskirts of the city. “We have been carrying out such special drives in the city on Sundays for the past one month. We already conducted similar drives in Ramkund, Godavari and other locations of the city,” Kute said.

                    The civic body has also joined hands with some city-based NGOs for carrying out the cleaning activities in various parts of the city. “Our objective is to clean the city and create awareness among people about sanitation. Apart from Nandini river, an NGO conducted a cleaning drive in Pandavleni area of the city on Sunday morning,” Kute said.

                      Nashik: Professionals working from home to pay regular residential property tax

                      Currently, the civic levies three-times more than the normal residential tax rate for the portion of a home that a property owner uses to practise his or her profession.
                      NASHIK: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to levy regular property tax rates on the residences of professionals — including lawyers, chartered accountants (CA) and doctors — who have been using their homes as offices. Currently, the civic levies three-times more than the normal residential tax rate for the portion of a home that a property owner uses to practise his or her profession.

                      Pradeep Chaudhari, the deputy municipal commissioner (taxation), said 100 such practitioners had approached the NMC seeking levy of regular property tax rates on their residences. “There is also the Supreme Court judgement of 1984 on the levy of regular property tax for professionals like CAs, lawyers and doctors, who are working from their residences,” he said.

                      Some professionals had also moved the district court, where the judgement was given in their favour. Therefore, the NMC administration has decided to levy regular property charges as per the residential property tax rates.

                      The civic body has prepared the proposal and it will be tabled at the NMC general body (GB) meeting on Tuesday for approval.

                      “The civic body should have respected the court judgement and should have applied regular property tax instead of the non-residential property tax rate. There are many professionals, apart from CAs, lawyers and doctors, who are working from their homes now,” said Ravi Rathi, the former chairman and senior member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), Nashik.

                      “Since the Covid outbreak, many are working from home. It is not a commercial but a human resource activity. This is a welcome move that the civic body has finally proposed the decision of levying a regular property tax,” said Rathi.

                      The NMC does not have data on the number of professionals working from home in the city.
