The idea to waive Residential House Tax is a great genuine promise because House Tax regime in Delhi was TOTALLY Corrupted on following grounds –
A residential property falling in ‘A’ Category may actually be getting services of Category ‘G’ – Choked Sewers, Inadequate Water Supply, Roads Cleaned Less than Once a Month, Choked Drains, Chocked Roads, Street Dogs, Pollution, Missing Dispensaries & Hospitals, Fruit & Vegetable Prices Double, Badly Maintained Roads, Large Trees Damaging Power Lines, Blocking Parking Spaces, Poor Garbage Collection & Disposal, No Licensing & Unregulated Shops & Street Vendors, No Quality Check on Foods & Products Sold, No Price Check – Why don’t shops make Price List Public like MENU of food outlets, Inadequate Parking & Play Ground, Missing Clubs & Community Centers.
Example- A Newly Built property in ‘G’ Category area may have similar Construction to a ‘A’ Category area.
2. 10 Year Slabs for Assessment than RESIDUAL LIFE.
Unit Area method didn’t factor in Quality of Construction & RESIDUAL Life. A newly built property may have 100 Years or more Durability. Whereas 40 Years old property built when there was acute shortage of Cement, Steel, Finance, and Services may have outlived its useful life.
Example- CPWD Flats built in 1983 required Major Repairs in 2003-08 within 30 yrs.
3. Corruption in MCD – Valuation could wary 5-6 Times.
Example – Bribe MCD and pay Rs.500/- as House Tax – Don’t Bribe Pay Rs.2500/-
4. Income Tax Rebate of Rs.800,000/- More Than House Tax.
Example – A newly built property – All Four Floors getting Rs.200,000 IT rebate each.
5. Fabricating House Maintenance Bills.
Example – Some House owners May Pay Rs.20,000/- as House Tax but may CLAIM Rs.500,000/- in IT Returns for House Maintenance.
6. Lifetime Payment @ 10 Yrs House Tax – No Tax Thereafter.
Example – 1990 Lifetime Payment Scheme was introduced. Some bribed and made onetime payment of say Rs.5000/- only and don’t pay any House Tax thereafter.
Commissioners Opposing House Tax Waiver Are Thugs for 6 Reasons.
