Revenue Committee chairman, Jainik Vakil said apart from sealing the properties, the civic body has also disconnected water and drainage connections of tax defaulters as part of the drive. He added that many defaulters turned up with a post-dated cheque towards the pending property tax.
In the South zone, drainage and water was disconnected at five properties while in the North West zone, the same could not be done since some properties did not have a water connection.
The civic body plans to aggressively pursue property tax defaulters in the coming days.
