PCMC had offered a free trip to Singapore for property tax payers:
The initial euphoria among the residents of Pimpri-Chinchwad to pay their property tax bills before time and fly to Singapore on a free trip has now given way to frustration.
The reason: the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has goofed up in providing correct bills to a large number of people.
The PCMC, in May this year, had floated a scheme under which the residents who pay their property tax by August 30 could win a chance to fly to Singapore. The scheme is meant for 15 couples, who would be chosen by a draw that would take place after August 30. The civic body would provide the return air tickets for the three-day and two-night tour.
However, with just 13 days left for the deadline, the hapless residents are now doubtful whether they can pay the bills by August 30 and stand a chance to fly to their dream destination.
There are about 2.71 lakh property tax payers in the PCMC area. The civic body has so far collected a revenue of Rs13 crore against the target of Rs90 crore.
