Chandigarh, Jun 4 (UNI) In an effort to generate more revenue, the Gurgaon Municipal Corporation has decided to impose two per cent stamp duty in the registry of land of the villages which have just been included in the boundaries of this newly declared Corporation.
It was stated by newly-appointed Municipal Corporation Commissioner Rajiv Sharma today while interacting with the media persons after joining his office.
He said the corporation had already written to the Collector and Deputy Commissioner Rakesh Gupta in this regard. He said survey for the collection of house tax would also be conducted for issuing notice for tax recovery in the areas falling under the Corporation according to government directions.
He said he would make all out efforts to meet the aspirations of the residents of Gurgaon. The pace of developmental work would accelerate with the strengthening of system of the Corporation.
Mr Sharma said the declaration of the Municipal Council, Gurgaon as Municipal Corporation Gurgaon would automatically lead to the dissolution of the Council and the end of the period of elected representatives.
The work for the demarcation of wards under the Corporation would begin soon and the efforts would be made to start the process of elections in the wards so that the elected representatives of the people could also coordinate their efforts in the development of Gurgaon, he added.
He said that the funds of the Gram Panchayats which had been included in the Corporation would also come to the Corporation.
Land bank of the available Panchayati land and other vacant land would be prepared and priority would be given for the development of these villages.
He said that some of the main responsibilities of the Municipal Corporation Gurgaon were arrangement of potable drinking water, cleanliness and repair of streets and roads which would be carried out on priority basis.
He said it would take some time for all round development of the Corporation.
''There would surely be improvement in the facilities to the people residing in the limits of Municipal Corporation Gurgaon.
However, these things would take some time to materialise,'' he added.
Mr Sharma said he would leave no stone unturned to ensure fast development and strengthening of its infrastructure.
