GMC Takes Steps Against Properties Owners. The Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) is actively pursuing property owners with outstanding tax dues to boost its revenue and ensure compliance with tax obligations. Additionally, the GMC is intensifying efforts to enforce regulations pertaining to trade licenses, essential for businesses to operate lawfully in the city. This initiative aims to uphold regulatory standards set by the municipal corporation, fostering governance and development in Guwahati.

The Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) has initiated a plan to combat property tax evasion. Warrants have been issued for properties with overdue taxes exceeding Rs. 2 crore. Failure to pay these taxes promptly may result in the seizure of these properties under sections 189(1) and 189(2) of the Guwahati Municipal Act 1971. The GMC urges all Guwahati citizens to ensure timely payment of their property taxes.

In continuation of its efforts to enforce trade license regulations, the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) recently conducted targeted operations on February 16. The aim was to identify businesses operating without the necessary permits. As a consequence, fines were levied on businesses found to be non-compliant with licensing regulations. This initiative forms a crucial part of GMC’s comprehensive strategy to uphold regulations and ensure legal compliance among businesses in the city.

AD Service Centre, situated on N.C. Road, was fined Rs. 40,000 for selling two-wheelers without a trade license. Similarly, A R Steel Trading on Lokhra Road faced penalties for lacking the proper trade license. Furthermore, Madan Lal Pareek was fined for operating two businesses on Lokhra Road with just one trade license, a violation of municipal regulations.

Property owners and businesses are urged to settle any outstanding payments and obtain the necessary licenses to avoid legal repercussions. The GMC is committed to fostering a well-regulated and law-abiding urban environment in Guwahati.
