Delhi Property Tax: The Aam Aadmi Party claimed on Tuesday that the Municipal Corporation in Delhi is now increasing the property tax. Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said that the task of collecting more tax from the people of Delhi has been given to the LG. In a few days, Delhiites are going to face the brunt of the new property tax. When the MCD was integrated, it was said that now the money will be taken from the central government, while this money will be collected from the people of Delhi in the form of tax.
Saurabh Bhardwaj said that a new structure of property tax has been decided on July 4 in the meeting of MCD officials. He said that the LG is going to give another gift to the people of Delhi by increasing the education cess by 1 percent. This tax has been added to the property tax of East Delhi and North Delhi. The Lieutenant Governor is telling the RWA that if 90 percent tax comes, then maximum work of one lakh will be done in his colony. Saurabh Bhardwaj asked the question that what kind of work LG has thought of getting done in the colonies which will be completed in one lakh.
BJP spread corruption in MCD
During this, senior leader of Aam Aadmi Party and MLA from Kalkaji, Atishi said that for the last 15 years, there is a BJP government in Delhi Municipal Corporation. Atishi alleged that every child of Delhi knows about the corruption done by BJP in MCD. The people of Delhi do not know that the full form of MCD is ‘Municipal Corporation of Delhi’. Now the general public thinks that the full form of MCD is ‘Most Corrupt Department’.
Atishi alleged that a person living in every part of Delhi knows that as soon as the first brick of his house is installed, the councilors and leaders of BJP reach to extort money from him. Everyone in Delhi knows that BJP councilors have filled their pockets by pauperizing MCD. The vehicles of the councilors have grown from small to big. The houses of the councilors have turned into big cells. But when it comes to the salary of sanitation workers, teachers, doctors and nurses, the BJP-ruled MCD says that we have no money.
Corporation money going to BJP leaders
MLA Atishi said that year after year the money received by the MCD from the Delhi government has been increasing. The Municipal Corporation had received only Rs 1465 crore from the then Delhi Government in 2010-11. But in 2015-16, since the Arvind Kejriwal government came, the amount of money the corporation used to get increased manifold. 5908 crore was given to the corporation in 2015-16. In 2021-22, this number reached 6172 crore. Apart from this, loans were also given to all three MCDs. Today, there is a loan outstanding of crores of rupees to the Delhi government on all the three MCDs. Despite getting money and loans, till date no work has been done by MCD in Delhi like cleaning and paying salaries of sanitation workers, teachers, doctors and nurses. Because all the money that goes to the corporation goes into the pockets of BJP leaders and councilors through corruption.
Atishi said that after consuming all the money-loan given by the Delhi government, now the MCD is preparing to increase the property tax. Common man who pays his tax honestly. Whatever paper-forms he has to fill, he goes to the MCD and fills them on time. Pays house tax or commercial tax on time. There will be more burden on that common person but there is not going to be any increase in the work of cleanliness, education, health of MCD. The way the amount of money that has come to MCD in the last 15 years, it has been embezzled and gone into the pockets of BJP leaders. Now the corporation has again taken out a scheme to fill the pockets of BJP leaders by looting the general public.
During this, Saurabh Bhardwaj also surrounded the new Lieutenant Governor of Delhi and said that the officers of MCD are completely misleading the Lieutenant Governor. It is written in the press release that RWA will collect 90 percent property tax of its area. Firstly, this is not the work of RWAs. The second thing is that you are telling the RWA that if 90 percent of the tax comes, then you will spend 10 percent of it in their colony. He says that maximum work of one lakh will be done in the colony. MCD officials should tell one work which can be done in one lakh in the colony. The work of making a drain in a small street is also done for 6-7 lakhs. A road work is completed in 3-4 crores. A swing set also costs one lakh in MCD. What kind of work has LG thought of getting done in the colonies which will be completed in one lakh? Saurabh Bhardwaj said that the MCD officers are making fun of the Lieutenant Governor by doing such things.
